A Reminder

A reminder: “Cursed be he who Subverts the Rights of the stranger” [Dt., 27,19]. Fundamental human rights demand the rescue and welcome of the stranger; they do not demand the inclusion. Dehumanizing in order to legitimize the non-rescue is the first act on the path whose end is extermination.
