Are Ethiopians “Fake” Jews?
Falasha: fake black Jews, again
The infamous ex-justice of the Supreme Court Shamgar, now a leading advocate for fake Jews from Ethiopia, arranged for the Knesset State Control Committee’s demand that the government stop sabotaging the “rescue” of some 8,000 blacks posing as Jews from Gondar, Ethiopia. In fact, more than a thousand of them entered Israel last year, in addition to the tens of thousands who were already here.
Amid much criticism, we would reiterate our position:
If anything, Falasha beliefs resemble monastic Christianity, with an emphasis on purity. Fundamentalist quasi-Judaic leanings are typical of the Ethiopian Church.The Falashas’ opposition to the Church rests on their tribal opposition to the state, whose backbone is the Church.
The Falashas have never tried to establish contact with nearby Yemeni Jews. Rabbinical confirmations of the Falashas’ Jewishness are completely baseless. What conceivable basis could there be for pronouncing them the descendants of the Dan tribe or King Solomon? The diversity of their origin myths shows their falsity.
