Could the 12,000 Jews in war-ridden Georgia be forced to move to Israel? Why now?
Simple! This was an Israeli “conspiracy.” Israel’s role in this war has been proven. This is the same fiasco the Mossad committed in Arab countries where Jews lived happily and refused to leave to Israel. The Mossad bombed their temples, killing their own then blamed the Arabs and suddenly there was a mass exodus of Jews to Israel.
Now we see these 12,000 Jews wanting to leave. Afraid of the Russians – or so they were taught. I wonder where Israel will place these poor immigrants? The Negev desert?
The crisis in Georgia has brought the roses back to the cheeks of senior officials at the Jewish Agency, Nativ (the Liaison Bureau) and the Joint Distribution Committee. In recent years, many people both in the Israeli establishment and abroad have been mulling these organizations’ role and whether they even have a right to exist. But suddenly, Georgia’s 12,000 Jews – the remnant of a splendid community, most of which has been in Israel for many years already – have become a coveted target. Emissaries have set out from Israel and from locations throughout the former Soviet Union to reinforce the small delegation in Tbilisi. Search teams have been set up, situation rooms have been opened, and some people are already preparing daring rescue plans.
Meanwhile, however, apart from a few hundred who lost their homes in the fighting and no longer have anywhere to go back to, the Jews prefer to remain where they are.
