While the anarchist Black Lives Matter movement is using massive riots across the United States to also call Israel an apartheid state, with some protestors even taking out their anger on the Jewish community, it is important that we remind people of this simple fact: Israel is the only country in the world that went into Africa to save black Africans and bring them to freedom. This is the story of Israel’s secret rescue mission to save the Ethiopian Jews.
29 years later Israel saved 14,325 Ethiopian Jews, flew 2,540 miles with 34 different planes to fulfill 1 dream. This is the story of Operation Solomon.
We love people of all colors! In Israel we have black Jews, white Jews, yellow Jews etc., yes, Jews of all color! Of course there are tensions once in a while, that happens in any society where you have different groups, but when it comes down to it we are one people in our homeland, with freedom and equality for all.
