Israel’s interior minister was criticized as racist for canceling a previous government decision to bring 20,000 Falash Mura from Ethiopia to Israel immediately. Avraham Poraz of the Shinui Party said Israel would bring 250 to 300 Falash Mura to the Jewish state each month because it is too expensive to bring them all right away.
