American Rescue; Ethiopian Immigration

  • The socialist idea failed in Israel when it was beginning to be a new nation.
  • The socialists entered Ethiopia and caused the economy to fall into poverty which only in the last few years is beginning to grow.
  • America still has the obligation to free American blacks of the stigma of being second class citizens. They can do this by taking into America selectively Africans suitable to improve America rather than allowing illegal unorganized immigration like is done today.

President Trump is rebuilding America again to be a great nation. His strategy is first to build America to be strong and courageous with strict immigration laws and new economic policies. America is moving toward socialism when it is speaking about making socialized medicine. Socialized medicine will only be the beginning of a new socialist America and for sure it won’t work. The socialist idea failed in Israel when it was beginning to be a new nation. The Kibbutz communities which were necessary in the beginning of the nation have today become free enterprises. The affect of socialism within the nation of Israel is still felt; people without hope against God and religion.

Venezuela had a great hope until the socialists destroyed the nation. Two million people have fled Venezuela because of poverty. The socialists entered Ethiopia and caused the economy to fall into poverty which only in the last few years is beginning to grow. However the nation of Ethiopia is still recovering and its people are leaving Ethiopia to other more affluent lands. On CNN it showed that there are caravans of Ethiopians on the way to Saudi Arabia which means that they have to cross over war torn Yemen. The situation in Ethiopia for many of its people requires them to leave their country and risk their lives to cross over Yemen. They are leaving with their families with only a bottle of water in their hands.

Once when there was slavery, America rescued many Africans and brought them into their land. Most of these Africans were happy to come to a new land to escape poverty. Slave trade is in the past, but slave trade allowed for countries to open up their borders in a more selective way than today with illegal immigration. The culture of the Black Americans was on a higher level before Lincoln freed them and many of them became discriminated against because of their color. When they were slaves their children were protected by their masters from many of the atrocities of today’s society. America still has the conscience towards their first immigrants, the Black African to educate them and find for them jobs that they also can become affluent. The Ethiopians on the way to Yemen would be very happy to be taken to America to be slaves. America can rescue them when it has strengthened its borders and initiate a more organized approach toward immigration similar like it’s done in Israel for Ethiopians today. Slavery is in the past.

Many Ethiopians identify themselves as Jews even if they are far from following the customs and rituals of Judaism. There is a community in Ethiopia called Beta Israel which has roots in Judaism dating back to the days of the destruction of the holy temple in Jerusalem by the Babylonians and the Romans. Due to the conditions of poverty in Ethiopia in 1862, a group of Ethiopians from Beta Israel attempted a journey to Jerusalem but failed along the way due to disease and hunger like today Ethiopians die on the way to Saudi Arabia crossing through Yemen. The nation of Israel established in 1948 became a refuge for Jews all over the world seeking a home. In 1973, the nation of Israel officially recognized Beta Israel Ethiopians as Jews with the right to return to their homeland. Even before then Ethiopian Jews had begun entering Israel illegally with Yemenite passports pretending to be Yemenite Jews who had the rights to enter the country. Israel organized rescue for Beta Israel Ethiopians to bring into their land more than a million Ethiopians during the past twenty years.

Ethiopians entering legally into Israel are first placed in immigration Aliya centers and prepared for life in Israel. In Aliya centers they learn to speak Hebrew and are trained to assimilate into the Israel economy. Ethiopians are given a choice to remain in communities of Ethiopians or to enter Israel society. Their color is black and they are covered with tattoos which make them look different. However their children are already Israelis from the day of birth. Israel’s experience with Ethiopians is that they are good honest people with a true desire for life. When America will close its borders they will be ready to provide immigration in an organized fashion like Israel for Ethiopians who are innocent refugees willing and happy to assimilate into America. The major religion in Ethiopia is Christianity which makes Ethiopians more suitable for America. Islamic immigrants are generally not interested in assimilation into American society due to their religious beliefs. Trump is correct to be more selective about immigration and the need for stronger borders. It is also necessary to make immigration centers for African immigration to teach them English and train them in jobs. To do this America has to make more jobs which Trump is promising. Ethiopians and legal immigrants from South America become a good influence on the black population which has lost their African culture. America still has the obligation to free American blacks of the stigma of being second class citizens. They can do this by taking into America selectively Africans suitable to improve America rather than allowing illegal unorganized immigration like is done today.

America has the opportunity to grow in the right way. The American blacks were freed before giving them education to assimilate into the American society. This caused them to live in ghettos in big cities. The borders of America were always open to illegal immigrants and American blacks lost jobs. America cannot turn the clock back but a positive approach is to close the borders and build from within. They need to be selective in immigration and organize immigration to include job training. America is beginning to open universities in the poverty areas which give the minorities a chance for further education. The best immigrants are those that are willing to assimilate into American society which means to learn English and dress American. A free America allows all Americans freedom of religion. There are no laws against Jews continuing to speak Yiddish or Hebrew or Muslims from being Islamic in dress. America even though it is a free country is still protestant and eats turkey on Thanksgiving. Jews are happy to live in America and join America by eating Thanksgiving dinners. America does not ask the Amish to modernize or the Chassidim to change their dress and culture. America can choose its favorites for immigration Christians from Ethiopia need Emergency rescue.

The Bible teaches “to save a life is to save the whole world.” America has the opportunity of saving the whole world through building strong borders and saving the lives of Ethiopians suffering poverty.

See the picture above and a question to Americans: Do you want this lady and her child to be your neighbor? If your answer is yes stop illegal immigration.
