We don't want your black Ethiopian blood.
Feb 1, 2014

Pnina Tamano-Shata, a Jewish member of Parliament of Ethiopian origin, saw her blood refused by Magen David Adom, the Israeli Red Cross which organises the collection of blood in the country.

One of the directors of Magen David Adom was filmed and recorded saying :
"In compliance with orders from the Health Ministry, we can't accept blood from Jews of Ethiopian origin".

The Israeli Health Ministry thinks that blood of Ethiopian origin might spread diseases like Aids.
Pnina Tamano-Shato came to Israel at the age of 3, fulfilled her military obligations and gave birth to two healthy children.

Nothing seems to have changed since, more than sixteen years ago, it was discovered that blood donated by Ethiopian Jews was systematically destroyed.

Now the directors of Magen David Adom say they will accept Pnina's blood but that it will be frozen and not used.

Over the last 30 years, during the operations Moses and Salomon, in 1984 and 1991, more than 100.000 Jews from Ethiopia came to Israel.
Today, the Ethiopian Jews number approximately 120.000, 80.000 of which were born on Ethiopia.

These black Jews are the subject of discrimination on a routine basis, this bloody incident is just one of those vexations.

Is it possible that the Jews in Israel are a bunch of racist pigs Nazis ?

All progress is due to people who asked questions.
