ISRAEL Ben Gurion Airport<br />
People sit at an arrivals hall in Ben Gurion Airport, where 240 Falash Mura immigrants from Ethiopia have gathered as they arrived in Israel.<br />
Some of the 240 Falash Mura, Ethiopians whose Jewish ancestors were forcefully converted by the mission into Christianity during the 19th and 20th centuries, have waited up to a decade in an immigration camp in Gondar, Ethiopia, to be brought to Israel. After Israel's government has decided a year ago to bring them, this is the first wave out of a few until 2013, named "Operation Dove's Wings".
