REPRESENTATIVES of Ethiopia’s ancient Jewish community are threatening a mass hunger strike if Tel Aviv withdraws funding to help them join family members in Israel.
Most of the 8,000 Jews still living in Ethiopia have relatives in Israel, as do millions of Palestinian refugees forced into exile, but racist zionist laws prevent displaced Arabs from returning to the land of their birth.
Israeli planes flew out 14,500 Ethiopian Jews from their homeland in less than two days in 1991, taking them to Israel.
Benjamin Netanyahu’s government pledged in 2015 to bring the rest to Israel, but, after a further 1,000 Ethiopian Jews arrived last year, the programme is now on hold.
“All of us here in Ethiopia are in a foreign land and suffering from acute poverty and hunger,” said Ethiopian Jewish community leader Meles Sidisto yesterday.
“We have had enough here. What have we done wrong to suffer this much?”
