Israel: Decision Allows Only 1,000 Falash Mura to Make Aliyah


BIN: After 80,000 members of the remnant Falash Mura community in Ethiopia have settled in Israel, the Netanyahu government has approved the aliyah of only 1,000 of the remaining 8,200 – who remain under very difficult conditions.

The decision has caused bitter disappointment among the community in Addis Ababa and Gondar and their supporters in Israel, as they have been yearning to come for two decades and most of them have close relatives living there. The announcement contradicted the government’s commitment in 2015 to bring all of the remaining members of the community to Israel.

But despite this unanimous decision three years ago, the Prime Minister’s Office then refused to implement the program because the NIS 1 billion ($284 million) it said was needed to fund the absorption process was not in the state budget. more …

Opinion: Regardless of the politics, Ethiopia’s descendants of Abraham will be going home for three reasons:

  • Ethiopia is one of the Gog Magog nations that God will judge (Ezekiel 39:6)
  • The descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob will be called to the land just prior to the time of Jacob’s trouble (Jeremiah 30:7; Ezekiel 39:28)
  • Zephaniah 3:10 prophesied it:

“From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia
My worshipers,
The daughter of My dispersed ones,
Shall bring My offering.”

The scene: It will be the final war before the tribulation. The miraculous victory against seemingly impossible odds will be like so many others …

  • Joshua 10:10 NIV
  • Judges 7:1-24
  • 2 Chronicles 20:1-29
  • Six Day War – 1967

… but on a much larger scale. In this war, at least 7 enemy nations (Ezekiel 38:1-6 NIV) identified by their ancient names from the sons and grandsons of Noah who settled there:

  • Magog/Rosh: Russia
  • Meshech, Tubal, Gomer, Togarmah: Turkey
  • Persia: Iran
  • Cush: Ethiopia, Sudan, Somalia
  • Put: Libya

It will happen once Israel is living in a false peace (Ez. 38:11). It will be over Israel’s great wealth (Ez. 38:12). It will be a surprise attack (Ez. 38:15-16), that until this generation with the advent of spy satellite jamming technology seemed impossible (here), and God provides the victory (Ez. 38:18-21).

There will be no mistake among God’s appointed for He says 5 times:

“Then they will know that I am God.”
