Rescue Operation For Yemeni Jews Took 2 Years To Put Together
Back in 2010 UK MP’s moved to rescue some 500 Yemeni Jews from religious persecution but nothing was done. But the some of the last remaining Yemeni Jews have now been extracted by airlift to Israel.
Manny Dahari based in the US helped orchestrate his family’s airlift to Israel; stating I’m just so relieved right now. I know that they’re safe.
Last Sunday, the media revealed that there was a carefully planned airlift of 19 Yemenite Jews to Israel. It was carried out with the assistance of the Jewish Agency and the US State Department.
Landing In Israel
On March 21, 17 new Jewish immigrants landed in Israel. These are Jews who were born in Yemen and brought to Israel in a secret operation, aided by many international players. The Jewish Agency, which works to encourage the immigration of Jews throughout the world to Israel, oversaw the operation.
The secrecy of the operation did not only stem from the fear that Islamic elements would try to thwart it, but also from a fear that Jewish elements would actually try to foil the immigration of Yemeni Jews to Israel.
