Human Trafficking in Israel
Robert Avrech posts to urge readers to sign a petition by the Task Force on Human Trafficking demanding that Israel take steps against sexual slavery within its borders. A friend of mine serves as director of advocacy for TFHT.
The continuing human trafficking in Israel is especially indefensible in light of the fact that Israel had little problem eradicating the phenomenon of foreigners illegally living there, the vast majority of whom were deported. Five years ago, the streets of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv were filled with Romanians, Filipinos and Asians. That is no longer the case. Yet the sale of women by pimps and brothel owners continues.
In 2002, my father wrote an article entitled 'Israel's Shame' about this issue.
