Operation Solomon


Operation Solomon was a 1991 covert Israeli military operation to take Ethiopian Jews to Israel.


In 1991, the sitting Ethiopian government, the Mengistu regime, was close to being toppled with the recent military successes of Eritrean and Tigrean rebels, threatening Ethiopia with dangerous political destabilization. Several Jewish organizations, including the state of Israel, were concerned about the well-being of the sizable population of Ethiopian Jews, properly referred to as Beta Israel, residing in Ethiopia.


Also, the Mengistu regime had made mass emigration difficult for Beta Israel residing in Ethiopia, and the regime's dwindling power presented a promising opportunity for those Beta Israel who had been wanting to emigrate to Israel. In the previous year, 1990, the Israeli government and Israeli Defense Forces, aware of Mengistu's worsening political situation, made covert plans to airlift the Beta Israel population in Ethiopia to Israel.This became the largest emigration of Beta Israel to date.

In 36 hours, non-stop flights of 34 IAF C-130s, filled to absolute capacity with seats transported 14,325 Beta Israel émigrés from Ethiopia to Israel, where they were given food and shelter.

The operation set a world record for single-flight passenger load on 24 May 1991 when an El Al 747 carried 1,122 passengers to Israel (1,087 passengers were registered, but dozens of children hid in their mothers' robes).

No muslim country were willing to accept the "palestinian refugees" (although they were practically begged to stay in Israel). There is humanity, and then there is... islam!

I like the way you bird-dog (i.e., "find", unmistakingly, like a hunting dog) the good stuff.

The only thing better than that is your posts about your life in the Army.

The Israelis are certainly to be admired for many reasons. They can be pretty unhesitating when facing terrorists. I guess they have to be....
