Israelis have a generally positive view of Ethiopian immigrants to Israel, but are divided over whether to allow a mass immigration of 26,000 Falash Mura, whose ancestors converted from Judaism to Christianity, according to a new poll. The poll, commissioned by the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, was released as the organization announced a commitment of between $3 million to $5 million over the next two years to help finance the absorption of Ethiopian emigres.
