Refugees and asylum seekers - questions

  1. If you were forced to flee, where would you go? What two things would you take? Now partner with the person next to you and between you chose only ONE thing to take.
  2. Does Israel have a moral responsibility, as a nation established in the aftermath of WWII, to assist non-Jewish people in need?
  3. Is it possible for Israel to balance the need to assist fleeing asylum seekers, with the need to provide infrastructure and security for its own citizens, particularly in the already run-down neighbourhoods of southern Tel Aviv?
  4. Both Australia and Israel make it very difficult for illegal asylum seekers to claim refuge. Do you think these policies are justified?
