LOADING UP THE BOXCARS:

Gillerman 'ashamed' of deportation plan (Yael Branovsky, 09.07.10, Israel News)

Some 400 people demonstrated on Tuesday against the deportation of 400 foreign workers' kids following reports that the procedure will commence directly after the holiday period.

The protestors carried signs reading, "Deport Eli Yishai" and "Each one is like family to me."

Israel's former ambassador to the UN, Dan Gillerman, attended the protest and told Ynet that the deportation could cause enormous damage to Israel. "Even if it happens, and I hope it doesn't, I will be thanking God that I am not the one representing Israel at this time," he said.
