1st Time Entire Lost Tribe of Israel Allowed “Home”

Thought this was interesting.

After years of diplomatic wrangling, the Israeli government has given permission to a community of Indian citizens who believe they are one of the “lost tribes” of Israel to move legally to the Jewish state.

This decision, first reported in Israel’s Maariv newspaper, clears the way for the arrival here of 7,232 members of the Bnei Menashe. They believe they are the descendants of Manasseh, one of the biblical patriarch Joseph’s two sons and a grandson of Jacob.

Yesterday the Jerusalem Post and Haaretz newspapers quoted an official in Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s office denying the government approved the immigration of the Bnei Menashe, stating Interior Minister Meir Sheetrit, whose office oversees the process of immigration and absorption, refused to sign off on the deal.

But a source close to the immigration negotiations affirmed to WND the Bnei Menashe indeed have been cleared to move to Israel. The source said government officials were upset the story was leaked to Maariv before the approval decision was formally announced. The source added Olmert’s office even had a press release written and ready to go announcing the decision.

  1. “Historic: Bnei Menashe Permitted to Move to Israel”- so reports Israel National News, participating in the BIG LIE of Indian converts to Judaism pretending to be descendants of Bnei Menashe – the sons of Menashe (Manasseh, the son of Joseph) – while bearing none of the biblical birthmarks that prove Israelite identity.
