Ziffer has a point when he talks of the difficulties that the B'nei Menashe will have on entering Israel. I hope we will give them the same support integrating into Israel as we did getting them to Israel. Are they economic immigrants? Doubt it. That was the accusation of the Ethiopians, and yet they are amongst the most partiotic, genuinely religious, genuinely Zionist sector of Israeli society. Yes, some of them showed themselves to be Christian when they entered Israel, but that is the minority. If they were just economic immigrants, then they would be like the Christian Arabs who collect their paychecks, then work assiduously against the state as aparatchiks for Balad or Hadash.
