Tough times for Theresa | Main | Snake On A Plane! (For Real)

Somebody call the irony police!

So where does a Muslim refugee go to get away from genocide?

An Arab Muslim country perhaps? Nope!

Eurabia? Guess again!

How about the Zionist entity? You got it!

Shlomo Reisman remembers vividly from his childhood the visage of Jewish refugee kids after World War II. They sneaked into pre-state Israel illegally, defying a ban by the British authorities.

"They came here without anything," says Mr. Reisman. "Without underwear, in shorts, with torn shoes."

Now, a new group of refugees is slipping into the country illegally - a mix of Muslims and Christians from a country that's officially at war with Israel.

Wait it gets better!

The flow of refugees to Israel has picked up over the past six months since 27 Sudanese asylum seekers were killed late December in clashes with Egyptian police at a sit-in demonstration at a UN refugee agency office in Cairo.

"I wasn't protected by the UN in Egypt. I was afraid that my visa had expired and they would take me back to Sudan," says Deng, a Sudanese refugee who paid $600 to a Bedouin guide to sneak him into Israel from the Egyptian Sinai desert. He received the money from friends living in Australia. "I was expecting to be protected. I am a refugee."

He will mark soon his first anniversary in an Israeli jail, a year in which he's had no contact with four daughters he left behind in Sudan. "Prison is a prison, but it's better here than the jail in Sudan or life in Egypt," he says.

That's right folks, its safer to be a Muslim in an Israeli jail than to be "protected" by the UN in Egypt!
