Amran, Yemen - The rabbi of the Jews Community in Amran province Yahya Yaish said he had received threat of cleansing over the Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip.

Yahya, whose brother Moshe Yaish was killed last December, said he had received two SMS messages, the first says “Jews…stop strikes on Gaza…you will be killed soon, God willing” and the second one asked Jews to convert to Islam.

Yahya said these messages are not different from that one his brother Moshe received before his murder.

Moshe Yaish, a 35-year-old teacher and religious leader in the Jewish community of Raida in Amran, was shot dead on December 11, 2008, by a Yemeni Muslim extremist. AbdulAziz Yahyah Hamoud al-Abdi, has been charged with killing Moshe and brought to trial.

Recent Israeli strikes on the Palestinian in Gaza do not only stir up more fears among Jews in Yemen, but also fears of violence in different parts of the world.

Jews have lived in Yemen since after chirbun bais rishon, if these attacks don't stop on the local Jews, they will lose a vital part of their history.

All Jews in Yemen are planing to leave the country. Many of them are looking to sell the properties for a fare price. The problem they face is if any country is willing to give them refugee benefits.
I have relatives in Yemen who keep on calling me about this.
If Israel is willing to give them a program and help them financialy to resettle in a orthodox area like Bnei-Brak or Elad or Beit Shemesh, they would go today.
The Great Rabbi of the Yemeni community in Monsey is working with many coomunity leaders to help some families to relocate to N.Y. and find a way to settle them with a refugee program as all Hungarian jews gotten in 1956.

Bnie Brak is not the best place to settle as it is over crowded with very high real estate prices, better look into Modin\Qiryat Sefer etc. where the you can breath with affordable housing.
