Exclusion and non-Jewish labour migrants, refugees and asylum seekers in Israel, 2006–2017
Robin A. Harper and Hani Zubida

‘cold welcome’ offered to Mizrachi 4 Jewish refugees in the 1950s and the treatment of Arabs who remained after the founding of the state. The current discourse shares with that period the exclusionary practices and policies, negative framing and disparaging views. The similarity is not complete, as the possibility of eventual inclusion of refugees and asylum seekers today is more complicated. No question, Mizrachi and Arabs still experience stigma and disparate treatment in Israel. However, due to both the Mizrachi’s political citizenship and nationality rights

This article presents a forgotten manuscript of a personal account of one of the first Jewish settlers who departed from Romania to Palestine in 1882 and helped found the colony of Samarin, which was later taken over by Baron de Rothschild and renamed Zichron Yaakov. Friedrich Horn, a schoolmaster with Austrian nationality who had settled in Romania fifteen years before his departure to Palestine, gave the manuscript of his unfinished work Nationaltraum der Juden to Moses Gaster. Gaster kept it among his collection of manuscripts. He considered it a diary rather than as Horn obviously had in mind, a contribution to historiography intended to be published. The text provides significant evidence concerning the underappreciated role of Jews from Romania in the historiography of Zionism.

Illegitimacy and law reform

. First, re-registration was public, expensive, and difficult. Second, the bill had not changed nationality laws. Third, the divorce courts refused to recognise legitimation unless the child Simple acts of justice 161 had used the Legitimacy Declaration Act. All of these issues caused problems for individuals who wanted to take advantage of the law. The RGO set up the process for re-registration when the Act seemed likely to reach the statute books. The LCO, the HO, and the RGO debated the best procedure in a conference in April of 1925. The Registrar, Sylvanus

Boer war; he had spent a brief period in the Transvaal in 1897–98. In 1899 he started the United Irishman, the first of a number of radical newspapers that he edited. It was replaced by Sinn Féin in 1906 and, after the latter’s suppression in 1914, by Scissors and Paste and later by Nationality. He wrote most of the material for his newspapers himself. It seems that he once turned down a job as a leaderwriter on the Freeman’s Journal so that, to quote Virginia Glandon, ‘he could continue through his newspapers to try to break up what he saw as Irish political apathy

other migrant groups in post-war Britain, which revealed more clearly than ever before the fact that behind the façade of a universal British national identity lay competing communities of Britishness, reflective of separate spheres of nationality. This chapter explores these different communities and suggests that their coming to the surface was a direct consequence of the end of empire. In June 1948

Irish and the English were seen as two separate nationalities. This, combined with the presence of Scottish settlers on the north coast of Ireland, 16 created a complex melée of cultures in Ulster. It was this mixture of cultural identities that would create so many problems over the coming centuries as different nationalities sought supremacy, especially in areas such as County Armagh. This turbulent

259 Conclusion 259 doned soldiers and sailors to embrace the Allied cause and their tendency to insist upon repatriation tarred the reputation of all the French in Britain, even those belonging to de Gaulle. Their position was further weakened by the contrasting manner in which other exiled nationalities, especially the Poles, rushed to take up arms against the Axis powers. According to Mass-Observation studies of 1940–42, the British public no longer thought a future Anglo-French friendship desirable and viewed the French as among the most exasperating of allies

popular publications was their flexibility and responsiveness to the needs of nationality and Empire. The reality of the British Empire was that it encompassed a great variety of peoples and places. This fact made available an extraordinary amount of ‘raw material’ for the historian seeking an heroic past, and for the adventure writers who placed their fiction in the far corners of the globe.
