The immigrations into Israel from Morocco and Iraq were poorly handled with racist overlays. Confronting this with those fleeing Sudan and Eritrea has made this ugly face rise with more severe consequences .

But the ones from Iraq and Morocco were Jewish, so Israel "had" to accept them. They have the excuse with the Sudanese that, since they're not Jewish, Israel has no responsibility, legal or moral. As was said in the film, this is NOT a Jewish way to behave.

Jews from Sudan have been cut off. Israel has decided they are not Jewish.

"Strangers No More," about the Bialik-Rogazin school in south Tel Aviv, won the 2011 Academy Award for best short documentary. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strangers_No_More#:~:text=Strangers%20No%20More%20was%20shot%20on%20location%20at,Short%20Documentary%20at%20the%20Academy%20Awards%20in%202011. The school is amazing with a large group of extremely dedicated teachers and volunteers who look after each child. As Ibrahim said, many of them have parents who work long hours and they have no other place to go than school.

The racism goes quite deep.

Thank you for this remarkable film. Who was the man with the long scar across his forehead speaking at the rally in an early scene saying, “We are your brothers, we are your sisters”? I don’t recall seeing him in later scenes.
