Seeking a job in Christ’s land2010-04-13 23:26
No matter how hard the local authorities try to present the advantages of Georgia, or to bring the emigrants back to the country by promising to provide them with dwellings and employment; the people still refuse to listen and keep treacherously running from the country. One of these days, the Georgian pilgrims in Israel went to the immigration service to get a status of refugee instead of taking a sight-seeking tour. The reasons produced by some of the Georgian politicians about Georgia being the true motherland of Jesus were still not enough to convince them.
The liberal and democratic Georgia turned out to have too much freedom and democracy to keep the people on a starvation diet without a job. The emigrants are flowing from Georgia in all directions. Some of them besiege Greece; others assault Europe in a Polish train, settle in Turkey or choose Israel. The latter is surely the most preferable spot for those who have got at least a drop of the Jewish blood.
We know nothing about the pilgrims' DNA analysis data; still, they must have hoped for a positive decision if they ventured to apply for a status of refugee.
45 Georgian travelers have at once turned to the immigration service in the town of Lod, having changed their sight-seeing route to the shrines of Jerusalem. The reason they produced while seeking political asylum was the danger threatening their lives in their native country.
All the pilgrims were permitted to wait for a report in Israel. Their petitions are to be considered within three months. As the local newspapers report, this is the first case in the history of Israel when such a large group of tourists apply for political asylum.
Georgia treats the escape skeptically. Minister of Foreign Affairs Nino Kalandadze believes the tourists have few chances to obtain a status of refugee. In her opinion, many Georgians believe it is easier to find a job in Israel. However, things are much more complicated in fact: the Israeli government's policy in respect of the illegal aliens is very severe. Thus, they are obviously going to be repatriated. Anyway, they will meet with the Georgian Consul in Israel Irakliy Advadze first, who will try to settle their troubles.
Earlier, the Georgian citizens tried to find shelter in Israel by getting there through the Egyptian border. However, they were detained and deported back to Egypt.
