    According to a brother on another board in the US you see one sided news skewered to an Israeli view point as opposed to the rest of the world where a more balanced view is put. Even CNN broadcasts different material in Europe and the rest of the world than it does in America.

    This is British politician George galloway debating Israel/Lebanon on Sky News (a kinda British CNN) according to the brother this wouldnt have been aired in the uS he would have been abrubtly cut off:

    Last time I checked AOL/Time Warner owned 95% of the WORLD MEDIA through smaller companies...so the untrue biased coverage is worldwide and in effect, I just hope it does not spill over into Afrika,and I can tell you that Pakistan,India, Egypt,and a few others in the 'middle east' are not safe.....

    In Israel, Some Blacks Are Welcome, Others Are Not
    By Palash Ghosh@Gooch700

    The state of Israel has welcomed the arrival of hundreds of black Africans from Ethiopia, while concurrently planning to deport thousands of other black Africans back to their native countries. About 450 people from Ethiopia's Falash Mura Jewish community landed at Israel’s Ben Gurion International Airport on Wednesday after decades of campaigning to repatriate to the Jewish state, following endorsement of the scheme by the Israeli government. Sofa Landver, Israel’s minister of Absorption, said she was “proud to take part in this historic event,” according to local media.

    The latest batch of migrants had been living in camps in northern Ethiopia under poor conditions before flying to Israel. A total of 8,000 such Ethiopian Jews have now been repatriated to Israel under a scheme called “Operation Dove's Wings,” which was temporarily halted in 2010. Since the 1948 founding of the Jewish state, a total of 90,000 Ethiopian Jews have moved to Israel.

    However, the plight of the Falash Mura has been controversial. Some Israelis do not accept them as Jews, while others criticized the government for not moving quicker to bring them to Israel. Indeed, another 12,000 Falash Mura community members remain in Ethiopia, denied permission to move to Israel, according to the Times of Israel.

    Meanwhile, as one group of blacks arrive in Israel, another much larger group of Africans face imminent deportation. Reuters reported that some 50,000 illegal African immigrants, primarily of Eritrean and Sudanese descent, will be expelled to Africa -- but first through Uganda, one of the few African states that Israel has good relations with. Some of these migrants – whom Israel regards as economic refugees, not people fleeing persecution -- have been in the country since at least 2006, having crossed the Sinai desert from Egypt.

    Israel’s interior minister, Gideon Sa'ar, even described the migrants as “infiltrators,” a word that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has also repeatedly employed. "In the first stage [of the expulsions], we will focus on raising awareness within the population of infiltrators while helping them with the logistics of their departure, including costs, airfare and dealing with the possessions they accumulated while they were in Israel," Sa'ar said. At some point, Sa’ar warned, the government will take more forceful action on removing workers employed illegally in Israel by, among other things, canceling all visas and commencing mass expulsions.

    In 2012, Israel passed a law calling for undocumented aliens to be jailed for up to three years (if they refused to leave the country on their own). An estimated 2,000 such Africans are currently held in detention centers, Reuters noted. Other Africans have been offered cash to exit Israel, which some have accepted.

    However, there are questions over why Uganda would agree to serve as a transit point for the deportation of these migrants. Haaretz, a left-wing Israeli newspaper, reported that Michal Rozin, a member of the Knesset and chairwoman of a parliamentary committee on foreign workers, suggested that Israel may be sending arms and cash to Uganda in exchange for their acquiescence in this deal. As such, Rozin is urging the government to reveal details of the deportation scheme, adding that once the migrants return to their native lands, their lives may be at risk.

    13 African-American Jews may be facing deportation from Israel
    Israel's High Court to rule on appeal against deportation order after Interior Ministry rejected their Reform conversion.
    By Judy Maltz | Apr. 9, 2014

    he High Court of Justice will hear an appeal Thursday against a decision by the state to deport 13 African-American Jews from Israel on the grounds that their conversion was bogus.

    The appeal was submitted a year ago by the Israel Religious Action Center, an organization affiliated with the Reform movement and that advocates on behalf of religious pluralism in the country.

    The 13 African Americans, originally from Kansas City, Missouri, are all members of one extended family. A court order prevents publishing their names because some are minors.

    According to sources familiar with the case, the adult members of the family underwent a Reform conversion in the United States five years ago. Israeli law requires the government to recognize as Jewish, for the purpose of immigration, anyone converted abroad by a rabbi in a recognized congregation, regardless of its affiliation.

    The family has been living in the southern coastal town of Ashkelon, which has had a small, but established community of African-American converts since September 2011. They are members of the Netzach Israel congregation there, which is affiliated with the Conservative-Masorti movement.

    In December 2011, when their tourist visas expired, the family members applied for Israeli citizenship with the Interior Ministry and were turned down.

    Asked to comment on the case, the Interior Ministry said the family’s request was rejected because of “serious doubts” raised, based on material presented to representatives of the Population Registry “about their conversion process and its purpose.”

    Sources familiar with the case said the ministry officials also raised questions and concerns about the family’s possible ties to the Black Hebrew Israelites, a community of African Americans in Dimona, most of them originally from Chicago, who maintain they are descendants of the Tribe of Judah but are not recognized as Jews by the state.

    Rabbi Andrew Sacks, the director of the Conservative-Masorti movement’s Rabbinical Assembly in Israel, said he was convinced such concerns were raised only because the family in question was African-American. “It is as though blacks must prove to be good Jews − something not required of others − and prove they have no connection to the Black Hebrews even though there really is no credible evidence that this is the case here,” he said.

    In response, the Interior Ministry said: “All conversions undergo the same exact examination process.”

    Sources familiar with this case and others involving converts to Judaism said this was the first time the Interior Ministry has challenged the validity of a conversion performed abroad by a rabbi in a recognized Jewish community. The outcome would therefore have significant and more widespread ramifications, they noted.

    The African-American family − a mother, her two sons, their spouses and children − initially tried to immigrate to Israel through Nefesh B’Nefesh, an organization that handles immigration of Jews from North America and the United Kingdom for the Israeli government. They were told, however, that it would best if they dealt with the Interior Ministry directly. Based on this recommendation, they decided to come to Israel on tourist visas and apply for citizenship once they had arrived.

    In recent years, African-American converts have come under intense scrutiny by Interior Ministry officials. According to sources who have been present at meetings held between the two sides, these converts are frequently questioned by ministry officials about their possible connections to the Black Hebrew community. The ministry appears to be concerned that they may be using their conversion as a way to get status in Israel in order to join the Black Hebrews in Dimona.
