Ethiopian-Israelis still struggling to find their place in the business world

Ethiopian-Israelis still struggling to find their place in the business world

Among 5000 members of boards of directors in the country, there is not a single Ethiopian; Immigration of Ethiopian Jews to Israel first started in the 70s.

In the rush to fill 400 positions on boards of directors at government companies, Ethiopian Israelis want to be considered too. They expect Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to keep his promise to set up a program to further employment opportunities for their community, which is among the poorest in the country.

Amir Sabhat, 34, accountant and auditor at Ernst & Young, immigrated to Israel at age 5 through Operation Moses after spending 9 months in a refugee camp in Sudan. He served in an elite unit in the military, earned a BA in accounting and an MBA in financial management from Tel Aviv University. But Sabhat, who integrated quite rapidly both socially and professionally, isn't a typical example of the Ethiopian community’s fate. At Ernst & Young only two out of 1,900 employees are from Ethiopia.

This write up should have been entitled, “Non-Tigrayan Ethiopians in Ethiopia still struggling to find their place in the business world".

In a country where almost all the wealth and business is owned/controlled by EFFORT and Al Amoudi, the modified topic gives more sense than the original. I feel Ethiopians problem at home is a more burning issue than that of Ethiopians in Israel.

The content of the article can be summed up, “Yeraswa siyarbat yesew tagelbitalech".

Let’s debate/talk about the death and life struggle in Ethiopia. Shall we?

Anchi shentam! Are you saying there is no segregation in Ethiopia? You must be Tigre. Fuck you while your dad and mom watch me live.
I will donate my blood to any group cleaning Tsila’s off planet!
Go Ethiopia!
Send all the remnants of Eritrea back to Asmara and reunite them with their lost causins.
Amedem zeregna!
God bless the diaspora for letting us chat freely. Without the diaspora we can not watch or read anything except ETV. That’s what these cockroach Tigre’s want_say yes to EPRDF. I hate banda’s and Tsilas!!

I don’t Know why we should put this issue in an Ethiopian magazine. Afterall it’s a problem among Israelites, so please don’t waste your time . They choose what they want to be and it’s their affair .

@who ever callls himself Mimi Dedeb…..
Not Mimi.

The name you picked for yourself says it all. Either you’re too cowerd or too stupid to notice, you’re actually insulting yourself. If you don’t know how conostructivley disagree with someone, it just shows your intellect level.

@Mimi
When you start your comment by insulting others, you’re just making yourself an open target for direct attacks. You probably had a point. I’m 100% sure there are Ethio Genrals other thanTigres. Though they do represent unbalanced majority. You have to state the facts to your argument.

Zionist [Visitor]:

If you are truly a Jew and taking what you said above seriously, you are definitely preparing the Jewish people for another round of Holocaust.

With all due respect, if Ethiopians are animals, so are the Jews. All Jews are humans and not Gods either. Where did you get all that? If you insist and play fool with yourself, that is fine with rest of us. Don’t even dare to tell us Jews are the “chosen people". That is a lie fed to the Jewish people by ignorant Christians as a feel good factor to keep you going during the thousands of years of exiled life. Do you know it is not even mentioned in your good book?

You gossiped, “Anyone who breathes a word about Jews He/she is Anti-semites". OMG!!! What is wrong you man/woman? Think before you write all that nonsense!!!

FYI, unlike you, we Ethiopians love all humans, including the ones you hate most.

If i may suggest Mr. president next time please meet our continually harassed and jailled journalists and human rights activists. They may not be as beutiful as the lady depicted on the picture but by doing so you will help them not to despair.

MIMI:

What do you have against diaspora? Are they not Ethiopians? You are either uneducated or you have a complex. I will say it again, that many in the diaspora came during the Derg and got “stuck” outside. I wish I lived in Ethiopia and I am trying to go back. But it’s not easy when you have kids. So please so that you don’t sound ignorant, think before you open your mouth.
