Israel becoming ‘safe haven for paedophiles’ with laws that allow any Jews to legally return, activists claim

Jewish Community Watch says 32 paedophiles moved from countries around the world to Israel over past decade

jerusalemActivists fear Israel is becoming a safe haven for paedophiles thanks to the country’s unique Law of Return for the world’s Jewish people.

A Jewish person from anywhere across the globe can be fast-tracked for citizenship in Israel, as well as their spouse, children and grandchildren.

An 1954 amendment to the law bans “a person with a criminal past, likely to endanger public welfare” but campaigners say sex abusers are slipping through the net.

“Israel is becoming a safe haven for paedophiles due to the unique opportunity available to all Jews from anywhere in the world to immigrate there,” said child abuse survivor Manny Waks, founder of child sex abuse advocacy group Kol V’Oz, speaking to The Independent.

“This provides a relatively efficient and effective way to evade justice from other countries. It also provides a sanctuary to those who have already been convicted.

”It’s important to note that while there are some criminal background checks as part of the immigration process, there are multiple ways to overcome this requirement – for example, convicted Jewish paedophiles may enter and remain in Israel as tourists indefinitely.“

Jewish Community Watch says that 32 paedophiles in their database have moved from countries around the world to Israel over the past decade.

It says 12 Jewish paedophiles, from across the globe, have moved to countries other than Israel.

“Education of this issue in the Haredi world is lacking. There are serious shortfalls,” Mr Waks, from Melbourne, told the Times of Israel. “They bring teachers in and out of yeshivas without doing checks.

“The Israeli government needs to look at this issue to address it, because it is an injustice to the victims and a danger to Israeli children.”

  • israeli occupation of palestine was opened with the bombing and killing of british mps, ie terrorism, then these thieves forcibly evicted millions of palestinians from their homes and land, and now they have infiltrated every institution and business and bank in the world, holding the world to ransom. then they allow paedos to illegally occupy recently scorched palestinian homes. this wrong should be righted and all these illegal occupiers should go back where they came from, they should be given the right to return back home to new-york, london, paris, kazaria. All of the millions of expelled palestinians should be given their right to return back to their homes in palestine. In addition the Palestinians should be paid compensation of $billions from those thieving zio-banks, and the US people should stop emptying their pockets to over $6 billion every year to these zios, and in fact all that should be refunded, and the control of US handed back to the people
