In the News (from BBC News): “More than 500 years ago, tens of thousands of Jews fled Spain because of persecution. Now their descendants are being invited to return.
“Before the infamous Spanish Inquisition of the 15th Century, some 300,000 Jews lived in Spain. It was one of the largest communities of Jews in the world.
“Today, there are about 40,000 or 50,000 – but that number could be about to swell dramatically.
“In November, Spain’s justice minister Alberto Ruiz-Gallardon announced a plan to give descendants of Spain’s original Jewish community – known as Sephardic Jews – a fast-track to a Spanish passport and Spanish citizenship. …
“Anyone who could prove their Spanish Jewish origins, he said, would be given Spanish nationality.”
My Comment: We will hear many similar “invitations” from different states and communities, resulting from the US plan to eliminate the state of Israel. If the people of Israel carry out the plan of its correction and build a society of mutual guarantee as an example for others, in this case it has a reason for existence. There is still a hope that we will be able to do that.
