Israel welcomes last Ethiopians of Jewish descent
The original link for a related story from June 15, 2007 by the JTA is here but no longer works. I hunted it down and found it on this website. Essentially, WE THE US TAXPAYERS are paying for the `resettlement` of these `refugees`.
Here is a similar story on one of my blogs from November of 2005. It states:
The package, which the American Israel Public Affairs Committee lobbied for, includes an additional $40 million in refugee-resettlement assistance for Israel, money that helps absorb Ethiopian Jews, and provides up to $75 million annually in additional funds by cutting administrative costs.
Just remember this when you see all of the continued poverty in the US as more and more people are forced to use food stamps in order to survive; this is just another one of the costs of Israel to the American taxpayers.
