We were so moved by what we saw, when we saw how people were living and the level of malnutrition and lack of education and everything that we take for granted, said one of the travelers, Rabbi James Brandt, CEO of the East Bay federation.Every person we bring to Israel gives them an opportunity for a new life arguably saving their life.
These white Jews (Rabbi James Brandt, CEO of the East Bay federation), talked much and exaggurated our poverty. Yes, we are economically poor and that is apparent. However, we are socially rich and passionate. We don't discriminate people and that is why some of the Jews there in Israel actually prefered to return back.
You don't give value for social economics? or it seems that you are desperate to provoke hate among Ethiopians and Ethiopian Jews. You don't need to worry about. Be sure they will never be non-Ethiopian.
Moreover, Ethiopian Jews are the first and most ancient real Jews, some estimated well before Queen of Sheba, following the fall of Hyksos in Egypt. Can any Jew, if at all exists claim that ancient? They are just moving from one part of their country to the other.
