Danna Ayalon tells Ali Velshi why Israel shouldn’t be involved in Syrian refugee crisis solution
The flight of refugees from Syria's civil war is posing a dilemma not only to European countries, but also to countries that border Syria, including Israel. But Israel is not allowing refugees fleeing the conflict to remain in the country. Danny Ayalon served as Israel's deputy foreign minister from 2009 to 2013. He also served as Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. from 2002 to 2006. He says Arab states are the only solution to the Syrian refugee crisis. Not Israel. This, despite calls from some Israeli leaders AND Palestinian leaders to take in refugees.
