1. What I have always found remarkable ....
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.05.12)
... about the Jewish people generally, is that we transcend all shades of color. We have blond hair and blue eyes and white skin; we have dark hair and dark eyes and olive skin; we have eyes with a distinctly Asian cast; and we have black skin and dark hair and dark eyes. We are all Jewish. We should revel in our differences because, when put together, we comprise a wonderful mosaic of unquestionable beauty. A house divided, said Abraham Lincoln, cannot hope to stand. Martin Luther King said that the color of a man's skin is not as important as the content of his heart. Please, cannot we pay attention to the words of both these great men?

3. to @1 Sarah B
PersianJew ,   Holon,TA,Israel   (02.05.12)
the problem is, so many of these people are actually not Jewish, but the descendants of Christian converts, I can't tell you how many Russians and Ethiopian's I have met that openly admit they are not of a true Jewish background, many convert, or should I say, revert to Christianity after making aaliyah and getting the immigration benefits, we have to be very careful about who we let in the country regardless of whether they speak Hebrew and read Torah or not..

10. How many "reverted?"
Eli ,   Hollywod, FL   (02.07.12)
@ PersianJew OK, how many Ethiopian Jews have "reverted" to Christianity? I'd love to see some actual statistics rather than just idle gossip.

Look at areas in the USA occupied by African immigrants and you will see what you are in store for.
