Since the beginning of the war, no Palestinian workers have been allowed into Israel, neither from the Gaza Strip nor from the Palestinian-controlled areas in the biblical heartland of Judea and Samaria. Since October 7 of last year, the entire Israeli construction industry has come to a standstill, because those who built high-rise buildings, houses and apartments in Israel until that point were Palestinian laborers. An entry ban for Palestinians has been in effect for six months. The government does not want to take the Palestinians into account, no matter how bad their and the Israeli economy are doing. Israeli entrepreneurs are urging the government to finally make a decision because they are in need, but nothing is happening. The Israeli security apparatus sees it differently and fears an explosion if this continues and the Palestinians’ jobs in Israel are taken away. When Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke of a possible pilot project for Palestinian workers this week, his colleagues in the coalition immediately went up in arms. “No way!

One response to “Tachles with Aviel – Entry forbidden for Palestinians!”

  1. Disciple 1978 says:

    Palestinian identity is a political identity that seeks the destruction of Israel. Arabs that have this identity need to disconnect from it politically and culturally. Palestine ceased to exist when Jordan and Israel were created. Islamic Arabs have been obliged to accept Palestinian identity by force. They were used in the war of independence. They were used in a political coup against Jordan but were expelled in 1973. They’ve been used as political pawns, often with their consent, by many terror groups like the PLO, PIJ, Hamas and others. Other nations have used them against Israel. Islamic Arabs need to seek a political and cultural identity that’s not at the disposal of the Palestinians. Better still, seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness through Messiah Yeshua, the Lord Jesus Christ and be free from all worldly bondages.
