The United Nations Tuesday called Israel to scrap a new program forcing thousands of African migrants out of the country, condemning it as incoherent and unsafe.Israel has not clearly said where the migrants will go, but tacitly recognizes it is too dangerous to return the Sudanese and Eritreans home.As a result, according to activists in Israel, it has signed deals with Rwanda and Uganda, which agree to accept departing migrants on condition they consent to the arrangement.Spindler called on Israel to find alternative solutions to the problem, stressing that the U.N. was ready to help with formal resettlement through official channels.
