The war in Ukraine: opening gates on a humanitarian background or a campaign to raise tens of thousands of Jews?
Survey: Most Israelis support the imposition of quotas on the absorption of refugees from Ukraine
A survey conducted by the Direct Falls Institute for the Center for Israeli Immigration Policy stated: About 67% of Israelis oppose granting status to Ukrainian refugees. Center: “A clear majority believes that refugees who have been granted asylum on European soil and are not entitled to the Law of Return should not be granted permanent status in Israel”.

We joined as friends of the court in the petition of Tomer Warsaw against the outline of the absorption of refugees from Ukraine
We asked to join as ‘friends of the court’ in the petition filed by the law firm Tomer Warsaw, which works hard to exercise and create the rights of infiltrators and asylum seekers, as a public petitioner, against Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked’s plan to absorb 5,000 Ukrainian citizens in addition to 20,000 Ukrainians staying in Israel Illegal. Following the filing of the petition, the Minister of the Interior changed its policy and expanded the scope so that it also included the relatives of the Ukrainians who come to Israel. In the term, the law firm hinted that the petition is coordinated with the Ukrainian embassy in Israel. We presented to the court arguments that the petition should be rejected outright, but unfortunately the court decided to discuss the sections of the petition and it still continues to be conducted in the courts.
The Knesset discusses developments in the absorption of Ukrainians in Israel
We participated in the discussion of the Knesset’s Interior Committee on the implementation of the Ministry of the Interior’s outline for the absorption of war refugees from Ukraine, with the participation of Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked, who announced the beginning of a change in trend following the renewed outline. According to her, thanks to the eligibility check mechanism in Europe, more returnees to the Law of Return immigrate to Israel and fewer non-returnees to war arrive at Ben Gurion Airport.
We participated in a discussion in the Special Committee for Foreign Workers in the Knesset, where we wondered aloud why the committee convenes to discuss issues of war refugees who are not entitled to any status as workers, do not receive a work visa and their children are not supposed to be absorbed in Israel. The committee’s chairman, MK Ibtisam Marana, said during the discussion that if we become realistic, half of those who come from Ukraine will settle in Israel.
