Israel okays immigration for last group of Ethiopian Falash Mura

Israel on Sunday approved the entry of some 9,000 Ethiopians known as Falash Mura who claim Jewish lineage, ending decades of debate on whether to allow their immigration despite uncertainty over their right to settle in the Jewish state.


The cabinet unanimously voted in favour of allowing the last group of Falash Mura to immigrate over the next five years but their acceptance will be conditional on a successful Jewish conversion process, the Interior Ministry said. They have been waiting at transit camps in Ethiopia for years waiting for Israel's green light.
