Chairman of Beta Israel Association says another 80 arrested as 2,000 Ethiopian Jews gather to demand entry into Israel, Israeli citizenship.
A Jewish group says that Ethiopian police injured 80 Ethiopian Jewish protesters and arrested 80 more during a demonstration near the Israeli Embassy in Addis Ababa.
Hamse Sutotow, chairman of the Beta Israel Association, said 2,000 Ethiopian Jews gathered Wednesday at the Israeli Embassy. The protesters were demanding the right to Israeli citizenship.
The members of a 2,000-strong community in Addis Ababa claim Jewish lineage, but their very origins are doubted by authorities in Israel who believe they are imposters seeking entry under the guise of religion.
Over 100,000 Ethiopian Jews already live in Israel and Jerusalem recently granted entry to 7,800 more from only the northern town of Gonder, where all Ethiopian Jews — known as the Falash Mura — originate from.

Zionism is all about a end time home coming of Jews to the land of their forefather.
Jesus said very clearly that He had not come to change the law and the prophetic Word. He came and will return to fulfill all prophecies.
For all who can read the prophet Ezekiel, it is obvious that Jesus the Messiah is behind the return of the Jewish people to the mountains of Zion.
I will bring them out from the nations and gather them from the countries, and I will bring them into their own land. I will pasture them on the mountains of Israel, in the ravines and in all the settlements in the land.
and say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I will take the Israelites out of the nations where they have gone. I will gather them from all around and bring them back into their own land.
Let us pray for the remnant of the Jews in Ethiopia. That they will be able to get their hand on the ticket back home, as God of the Bible has promised.
