I am looking for the true story about operation Moses. It is everywhere on the net,but not the whole story. The whole story would (i heard) tell about the gun exchange for Bete Israel.That Ethiopian government sold the people for guns plenty of it.
Does the idem know anything of this?

Greetings Bredren. I, for one, am very glad for this reasoning and I am looking forward to hearing other's views and overstandings on the history of the Beta Israel as well as their "exodus" to Israel during 1984-1990. I don't know much on this topic but my heart is yearning for the truth.
Here is an historical summary from a Jewish website.
I don't like the way they (Jews) describe the Beta Israel as being rescued and freed. I realize there was civil war and famine at the time so yes, in that way they were assisting but.. how is removing every indigenous ancient Israelite from Ithiopia anything but a conspiracy? I mean, did the Beta Israel really want to be infiltrated into modern Jewish life and taken away from their homeland? Ithiopia is the true Zion, seen. It makes me very sad that this happened. I read somewhere that the Beta Israel had a difficult time assimilating into life in Jerusalem and that many have taken menial jobs as janitors and such. And I am sure US and Israel supplied more than food to Ithiopia in return for them.
