Ethiopia: In a single day, Ethiopian immigrants make aliyah—and are thrust into a war zone

In a single day, Ethiopian immigrants make aliyah—and are thrust into a war zone

By Ben Sales

Source: JTA

IBIM, Israel (JTA) – The explosion occurred close enough to Stesyahu Alema to shake his apartment, where he sat with his wife and two of his five children.

But he didn’t flinch. None of them did.

“There are a lot of people with me, so I don’t need to worry,” Alema told JTA. “I don’t worry.”

The Alemas were among 91 Ethiopian immigrants who arrived in Israel last week, just a day after Israel’s Operation Pillar of Defense began. The new olim immediately were sent to the Ibim immigrant absorption center, a former aliyah youth village run by the Jewish Agency for Israel about three miles from the Gaza border. Other immigrant absorption centers were full.

During a visit Sunday, two explosions rocked the area in the space of just a few minutes. The first, a rocket launched from Gaza into Israel, had prompted a warning siren, sending the Alema family into the reinforced room that doubled as their children’s bedroom. One of the Alema daughters slept through the echoing impact that followed.

The Falashas are the true Israelites not the European or Russian Jews. The true History has to be told as it is.

Falashas are the one who created Ethiopia and Ethiopian history. Not these chiggarams weyannes as they claim. We introduce Gize, ,we simply brought civilisation to present Ethiopia. Mose was falasha,so do Christ and Mohamed.
Do you know the lost years of Christ? He was in Ethiopia visiting his fathers arc in lake tana…… Things you kuttarams do not know….

In French, “C’est moi” means is “it’s me” …..It’s me “senait". I prefer to call her YeZorebat attention seeker.

Cést Moi, Warrior Quen,
Endet nesh? Menuw endezih tefash ebakesh, bedehna?? That said.. there you go again! How many times have I warned you to keep to the topic? This is about the new arrivals who have been tucked into coflict-pronen corner of Israel, not on how Falshas built Ethiopia and that Jesus once paid (officially??) a visit to lake Tana; and now you included that devil Mohammed to the list which certainly will make that cursed nut, Gragn Ahmed happy or probably fume with anger for being called a Falasha. My honourable friend Asta B Getu would also not be amused by this. Leave Ethiopian ancient history to me, never mention it again. Have I already not enough on my hands with Addis Zemen as it is, that I have to pick up a fight with you again, my great friend, yeseferee lidj ye legeharre??? Otherwise, you must know that my Meskal Square option to deal with you will be activated; I have never cancelled it, only placed it in my drawer!! ..know what I mean???
Shaloom..

Yes, yeseferre lidj..do you know why? One of my aunts used to live there, had 2 sosn attending Lycee Gebre Mariam, a school that, somehow, managed to produce graduates totally detached from their society; one of my cousins was one of them. Those girls you mentioned must surely know me, for whenever I show up there all elligible girls were haging on to me!! So, I didn’t have the time and space to to sport! Men tadergiwalesh?? Just jocking…As for your last question, I would say it is a highly confidential one that is too dangerous for you to know! Know what I mean????????

Inspite of bei.ng called all names by the Baleges Immigrees from Russia and Balkans names like Kushi.
An Ethiopian woman General I think used to command the entire Golan Hights. Palestinians tremble when Ethiopian Israeli soldiers enter Gaza.
I like what SENAIT touched points in history that some do not want to change.
One of the Jewish Holy Books mention that Moses was in present day Ethiopia as a General leading an army.
Axum is older than mentioned. There are tunnels or passageways crisscrossing the entire city underground and as usual the Government do not want to investigate I suspect because it leads to Falasha.
The Great Pyramid also are very reluctant to search more, even those Europeans were scolded when they announced that door inside the tunnels. Meaning they are afraid that the real constructors of The Great Pyramid were not Arabs but Falasha Jews.
Do you Senait have heard in Falasha history anything about The Pyramids?
Am Israel Chai!

Ya-Saka ( may God protect you) in עברית Hebrew

Axum is now under French Archaeologist,which is why they want to keep every single black history under Vatican carpets,not to be mentioned or reviled that black proud history.
How a black could build this kind of historical monument and still stands more than thousands years without being damages? This and other secret still unanswered to all of us.
The falash hidden history will revile in future to come.

C’est moi senait,

I agree in lots of things with you but this one you are dead wrong. The Ethiopian Civilization Began 6000 years ago my dear. The Pharos of Egypt used to turn to South East and pray by believing all Gods come from the Highlands of Ethiopia. All the Egyptians Civilizations like Math’s and Science is believed to come from the central power which used to reside at the highlands of Ethiopia. It is believed that there was a catastrophic even like a Tsunami that created the Shara Desert which cut of the Highland of Ethiopia from its subjects in Berber, Egypt, Saud Arabia, Yemen and other countries in the area that used to be controlled by Ethiopia. They came to this conclusion because they found items and artifacts that existed in Ethiopia that dated way back and same things in Egypt and Yemen that dated much latest. This indicated that the knowledge was started in Ethiopia and other were using it countries on the north and east with the same but a bit changed way. And also my dear, Ethipians alphabet and number system and music notes are only used in Ethiopia and nowhere else. infact the Ethiopian Alphabet which was based from Geze and Geze is supposed to be the orignal scripted language, which Europeans calling it Connonite. The felashas speak and use the original Hebrue which is a third Generation language. Hebrew comes from Aremia (something like that) and Aremia comes from Another language that I forgot and that language comes from Cennonite. So my dear your Flashas came to Ethiopia and they were didn’t integrate to the Ethipian community until the early 20th century. You can ask anyone that the Felashas were considered a lower cast than the other Ethiopians like Dorezes and Welayetas used to be treated because of they handy work. If you are a felash that is good for you and you should be proud but you dont have to try to take creadit where you dont deserve one. If you are felash you need to ask your parents and grandparents how they used to be discriminated by Other Ethiopians. In order for they to do what you said they did they have to be either a major player in the society or must have been integrated with the society which neither is true.

As C’est moi senait (visitor) has said, the Ethiopian Felashas may have contributed many indispensable histories to the Ethiopian people; however, my friend Favioli’s great concern is putting the false prophet Muhammad side by side with the Son of God, Jesus Christ. Two different historical figures: Jesus and Muhammad.

1. Jesus stands for truth.

2. Muhammad stands for deception.

3. Jesus came to save the world.

4. Muhammad came to destroy the world.

5. Jesus taught peace and love.

6. Muhammad taught violence and hostility.

7. Jesus has said: “Blessed are the peace makers.”

8. Muhammad has said: “Glorified are those who kill the infidels.”

9. Jesus is the only Mediator between His Father and mankind.

10. Muhammad is the only mediator between Allah and the Jinn/the Devils.

11. Jesus has always been humble and obedient to his believers.

12. Muhammad has always been rebellious and trouble maker to his followers.

13. Jesus loves children.

14. Muhammad rapes and abuses children.

15. Jesus heals the sick.

16. Muhammad prescribes camel’s urine for the sick.

17. Jesus has never killed any person.

18. Muhammad has killed over 900 innocent Jews of Yathrib in one day.

19. Jesus forgives a person’s sins.

20. Muhammad adds more sins to a person’s sins.

21. Jesus respects both men and women.

22. Muhammad dehumanizes women and glorifies men.

23. Jesus multiplies food and feeds his audience.

24. Muhammad steals and robs other people’s properties and feeds himself and his followers.

25. Jesus never married.

26. Muhammad had a number of wives and concubines.

27. Jesus never had weapons in his hand.

28. Muhammad had over 25 swords called Muhammad’s “special swords.”

29. Jesus never promised his followers that there would be sex in paradise.

30. Muhammad had assured his followers there would be sex in paradise.

31. Jesus rose from the dead.

32. Muhammad remains dead until this day.

My dear C’est moi senait, you are right that many members of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahido Church believe Mary, the Baby Jesus, Joseph, and Salome came to Ethiopia and stayed at Tana Kirkos Monastery in Fogera, Gondar. I visited this monastery with my two yekolo tmhirtbet friends long time ago. First, we went to Kirstos Semera, and from there we crossed the Tana River on foot, and the water was up to our chest. Then we entered the monastery and saw the exact location where Mary with her companies sat and stayed. We kissed that holy ground and felt great joy inside our hearts.

Many years later, I went to the same monastery with a German professor from Heidelberg University, West Germany, but the monks couldn’t remember me that I had visited them long time ago; however, they were happy to see me again after I told them my first visit to the monastery. They were, however, suspicious about the German professor to allow him take some pictures. I convinced them when I opened the book they brought us and read it perfectly in Geez language. The book tells about the landing of Mary at Tana Kircos with her followers.

Many Muslims have tried to put Muhammad in place of Jesus or to make him as one of the old prophets. Muhammad himself wanted to be called a great prophet like Jesus Christ, and that is why he plagiarized some chapters and verses from the Gospel of Jesus Christ and from the Torah of Moses.

So, when C’est moi senait puts, perhaps, unintentionally, Muhammad side by side with Jesus Christ, it seems to my friend Favioli and my self like giving Muhammad the false prophet an equal status with Jesus Christ. There are many great differences between Muhammad and Jesus Christ that I have not completely mentioned.

One may put Muhammad and Yodit Gudit side by side, but not Jesus Christ!

Observer.

I am not going to be rude here but you are a WRONG OBSERVER like Portugal brutal coloniser who destroyed The Maya culture and not to mention what had happened to Aztec culture who just disappear without an clue.

Your FICTION theory that you consumed by DeDeb Addis Abeba historian or False professor is nothing more than a KUTTARAM COPY of Fudal education that blinded your childhood with fals history up to now. You seem to me that you are sitting with comfort with worthless picture of history.

I must have shocked you with this new details of Falasha who created Ethiopian today. Thanks to Falash knowledge that we have now our own languages with our own Alphabetic etc…
I can challenge any kuttaram professor in Addis university and feed them with all new facts and feed their narrow minded brain until it explode. The history of falash is more than you kuttarams swallow ……..

I would like to point out first that we are all Ethiopians wether Falasha, Konso, Amara, Gurage, Tigray, Oromo, Afar and much more.
Just like our body parts, all different but working perfectly in unison to sustain the whole body that is Ethiopia.
When I was in Axum at the Museum I saw a slab of stone with letters on it and nobody could tell me what it says. Same form of letters could be seen on obelisks dotting the way from Adulis to Axum. How come we can read Geez and not these letters? Who wrote them? We see them across the Red Sea in Yemen. In Yemen those that look like Ethiopians can decifer them. Same letters are found in the Irish Runes written in a beltlike form.
Some say they are Sabean. Was she Falasha? Why the Irish connection?
Can anybody expand or correct on this?
