Tel Aviv - Israel Close-Mouthed On Reports On Bringing Yemenite Jews To Israel
Tel Aviv - Jewish Agency and Ministry Absorption officials are keeping mum on reports in the Arab media that Israel has brought in a group of the last remaining Yemeni Jews to Israel via Doha. According to a report from the Palestinian newspaper Al-Manar quoted by the Iranian Fars news agency, Israel is â€śtransferring Yemeni Jews to occupied landsâ€ť and is â€śpreparing to host more Yemeni Jews in coming months.â€ť
This new aliyah, the Iranian outlet reported, is part of â€śa Judaization plot to change the identity of the region.â€ť Most of the Jews of Yemen were â€ślured to the occupied territories en masseâ€ť following Israelâ€™s establishment in 1948, Fars reported.
Spokesmen for the Ministry of Absorption and the Jewish Agency declined comment, although a Jewish Agency source did note the origin of the report in a derisive manner.
