Reader comment on item: Middle East Migrants: Stay in Your Culture Zone

Submitted by Michael Kerjman (Australia), Oct 29, 2021 at 14:46

Once, a stranger started toking to me in a street of a suburb well far from a shtetl in Melbourne. She told me briefly of her life, of a journey of her Jewish family fleeing Nazi Europe to a refuge somewhere in Latin America, baptism was an entry precondition. Of her Australian living.
As seen from Victoria, Australia, a place where abuse of elementary human rights and laws of the land under an umbrella of covid-protection not only continues but is being gradually legalized, straightening selections for granting visas, preconditions for a settlement, amendments to citizenship laws rather than a biologically-motivated "culturally-sustained" general ban on intake of various applicants are more civilized and workable even in a covid-spoiled reality of the West.
"Structural racism, xenophobia" affect any migrants wherever they are as well as various "phobias" radicalize whoever not from minority backgrounds only.

"Palestinization" of migration is not a solution - and for how long the West to pay for such camps in foreign neighboring to hot spots regions?
