Expelling entire races of people from a country because they “threaten” the racial hegemony of the dominant national group? Yeah, I’m pretty sure that’s literally the definition of ethnic cleansing.
Israel’s interior minister said on Friday he hoped to soon start moving tens of thousands of illegal African migrants from Tel Aviv and elsewhere to a detention camp being built and a planned “tent city.”
Interior Minister Eli Yishai told public radio 40,000 Sudanese and Eritreans were next in his sights.
“They are close to being expelled either willingly or against their will,” he said. “This is a number that threatens the Jewish identity.”
