Last Batch of Black Slaves Reaches Israel
I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.—Martin Luther King, Jr. Washington, DC, August 28, 1963

Hanna Columbus Discovers Africa
I was truly surprised and strikingly amused to discover that American have coined the term "Jewish Princess." If commenting on the actual terms used in Hebrew toward the same creatures, ADL lawyers will close this website on the spot. Let me soften that into "meddlers" and "manipulators."
Falash Mura and Beta Israel
Many years ago, as a young IDF officer, I got special instructions how to deal with Ethiopian soldiers. I had a Samaritan soldier, but no Ethiopians, thus I couldn't judge the accuracy of the descriptions in the text, except for categorizing it on the spot as racist in the extreme, completely unquotable.
An explosive topic, the resources and language used towards Ethiopian Jews have changed along the years. The term "Falash Mura" was banished, "Beta Israel" never caught in Israel; how can they be the House of Israel? "Ethiopians" is the term currently considered as politically correct. Early publications regarding their dubious origins have disappeared, except for two sources.
It was a typical Jewish War. Nothing was likely to happen until Barbara Ribakove Gordon discovered Africa and got American Jews funding to bring the 100th Lost Tribe out of the original 12, back to Zion.
"OK, bring them," Zion said, unable to say no to a couple of dollars and strong working arms. "Freebie slaves! Great!"
Later on, a 1999 study by Lucotte and Smets studied the DNA of 38 unrelated Beta Israel males living in Israel and 104 Ethiopians living in regions located north of Addis Ababa and concluded "the distinctiveness of the Y-chromosome haplotype distribution of the Beta-Israel from conventional Jewish populations and their relatively greater similarity in haplotype profile to non-Jewish Ethiopians are consistent with the view that the Beta Israel people are descended from ancient inhabitants of Ethiopia and not the Levant." Other studies reached similar conclusions. Despite this, the Halakha ruling issued by Rabbi Ovadia Yosef still holds.
Mossad's Slave Trading
In contrast to the discrepancies regarding their Jewishness, there is no doubt about the link between Beta Israel and the Falash Mura. Both groups acknowledge that Falash Mura were people from Beta Israel who accepted Christianity in various waves of conversion since the 15th century. In comparison to the roughly 130,000 Beta Israel living now in Israel, the number of the Falash Mura is small; apparently fewer than 10,000 still live in Ethiopia; even fewer are in Israel.
They are not recognized as Jews by the State of Israel, and thus are not allowed to reach the state under the clauses of the Law of Return applied to their brothers from Beta Israel. Due to their Christianity, Falash Mura reaching Israel independently are treated as illegitimate foreign workers and deported if caught. They have the same status as the recently attacked South Sudanese and Eritrean workers.
Beta Israel were brought to Israel in four main operations Operation Moses (1984), Operation Sheba (1985), Operation Solomon (1991), and finally the abovementioned Operation Dove's Wings., organized by the Mossad and funded by the Jewish Agency, in other words, mainly by American Jews.
Meanwhile, their Beta Israel brothers live mainly in "development towns" and are widely discriminated against by Israeli society. This discrimination was accepted by the international community. What would be the reaction if Germany were to legislate a law allowing the immigration of Christian Turks to Germany but denying the immigration of Muslim Turks to its territory? Why is Israel allowed to perpetrate a parallel crime?
Dismantling the Zionist Dream
The end of the current slave-transport operation came at an ominous time; just days after Israeli-Ethiopians learned that Israel's Ministry of Education was essentially dismantling the program allowing their assimilation into the Israeli society. "Slaves don't need to understand Tolstoy!" was the message (see They don't have a dream anymore).
Meanwhile, the camp in Gondar is being dismantled. The Jewish Agency representatives will leave a sign at the Jewish community school, the structures will be handed over to the Gondar Municipality, the synagogue’s Torah scroll will be returned to Israel, the kindergarten and the kitchens will close, and the 15-year leased property will be returned to its owners. Payback time is here, plenty of agricultural work in Israel for its new citizens!
Disconnected from the internet, and in any case unable to read the Hebrew reports on the issue, the few Beta Israel still in Ethiopia were unaware that they have become the Zionists' cannon fodder. Merrily, they boarded the deportation German trains... oops! sorry, Zionist planes.
+ Halakha is the Jewish religious law, a body of legislation parallel to Muslim Shar'ia. Its most comprehensive text is the "Shulchan Aruch " published by Yosef Karo in 1563. The name means "Set Table" and is the most extensive Code of Jewish Law. It generally follows Sephardi traditions. Shortly afterwards, Rabbi Moses Isserles published his notes to the "set table," usually known as "mappah" (tablecloth). The combination is an acceptable way of solving liturgical discrepancies among the bulk of Jews, namely Sephardic and Ashkenazi.
* Beta Israel and the Falash Mura are two groups of Ethiopian citizens seeking Israeli citizenship under the Law of Return. The Law of Return gives automatic and immediate citizenship to every Jew arriving in Israel.
