In regards to the question on African refugees (“African Migrants Caught In New Bind,” Jan. 3), Israel should feel honored
that it is a country that people run to, rather than run from.

Millions see
Israel as a “better place.” I am not unaware of the dangers of
“infiltrators.” We have that, too, but kindness goes a lot further than fear. 
Most of these people are escaping from hellholes; Israel should welcome them
to the modern world.
