What an achievement!
4. # 3 Why do you consider it an achievement?
Guido ,   Milano, Italy   (12.06.12)
I consider an outstanding achievement the destiny of all the palestinian refugees, ALL OF THEM, taken together. They succeded in just three generations to be promoted from refugees to refugees.

Guido's are not known for their intelligence. You surely live up to your name
PAUL ,   LONDON UK   (12.06.12)
7. Where?
Annette ,   DC USA   (12.06.12)
Doesn't the village have a name? I know it does because I've been the Gondar and have visited the synagogue and the school there. But why wouldn't you report the name?
8. To Guido

Had the Palestinians accepted the '48 partition plan, there would have been no Palestinian refugees.

11. this is the difference between Israel & the arabs
zionist forever   (12.06.12)
Israel carries out huge and expensive operations to bring Jews from places like Ethiopia and Russia where they are given new lives, they can become ambassadors etc. With the arabs in 1948 they refused to give the arabs who in 1964 became known as palestinians who just wanted emigrate and instead kept them in camps to be used as a demographic weapon in their war against Israel. In Saudi Arabia anybody but palestinians are allowed to apply for citizenship on the grounds of they don't want them to give up their right of return They have no love for their fellow arabs When it comes to wars or diplomacy they will hand out a little bit of cash and make some statements but beyond that they have no interest. Arabs look out for themselves and if there was no Israel they would constantly be at war with each other.
12. Her hometown?
ORA ,   JERUSALEM   (12.06.12)

Why are people sometimes so simple..and stupid .realy it is not to believe
14. Great news
Avi ,   Jerusalem   (12.07.12)
Its great news that more Etheopian Jews from Gondar are coming to live in Israel. We should encourage more Jews from across Africa to come and settle in Israel. Belaynesh Zevadia shows how different life can be be when you live in Israel.
15. why we are different to arabs
zionist forever   (12.07.12)
I encourage all Jews from across Africa to seek Asylim in Israel.

something wonderful and great with her life, as have most of the 800,000 plus Jewish forgotten refugees from Arab and Islamic countries.
19. 13 The place where you were born..
ORA ,   JERUSALEM   (12.08.12)

21. Cool
Frances Keeney   (12.17.12)
God bless this woman. God bless those doctors.
22. how can we go back?
FMamo ,   Addis Ababa, Ethiopi   (12.17.12)
My father is from Gondar & he used to tell us that his mom was jewish. Unluckily we were born in Eritrea & came back to Ethiopia because of the war. Since we had no contact with our father's relatives, there's no proof that will help us go to Israel. Any ideas?
