Yityish Aynaw Miss Israel 2013

 

AFRICANGLOBE - A 21-year-old former army officer has made history after becoming the first Ethiopian-born contestant to be crowned Miss Israel.

Yityish Titi Aynaw from Netanya, who immigrated to Israel with her family when she was 12, was entered into the annual pageant by a friend, and had no previous modelling experience.

She took home the crown after a panel of judges awarded her title at the International Convention Center Haifa earlier this week.

During the competition, Aynaw said she hoped “to represent all Israelis” and also named American civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. as one of her role models.

“He fought for justice and equality, and that’s one of the reasons I’m here: I want to show that my community has many beautiful qualities that aren’t always represented in the media,” she said.

Recalling her journey to Israel as a child, she insisted that being “thrown into the deep water” helped her get used to her new life.

“My aliyah [which translates to "a look to the future," in Amharic ] was pretty tough,” said Aynaw.

“A new language, a modern society. I’m lucky to have had a friend, Noa, who befriended me from the start and helped me out. I didn’t study in a ulpan. I was thrown into the deep water and learned the best that way.”

The beauty queen, who has been working as a saleswoman at a clothing store since her army discharge now plans to venture into modelling  “to change attitudes to dark-skinned models. I’d love to become the first Israeli (TV) host, the Tyra Banks of Israel.”

That's exactly what I thought it was with Ole Miss, but, I hesitated say anything, because I did not want to rain on that young girls parade.  I personally think that the young girl crowned Ole Miss' was beautiful, intelligent and deserving.  

 

However, I do believe [being from the racist south myself] that is was no coincidence that they just happen to chose a fat, very dark-skinned Black girl, which there is absolutely nothing wrong with, but in the southern racist mind, I believe that they thought they were choosing a stereotype of a Black woman

This is what I was talking about.

 

A second group made up of another 175 Ethiopians, known as Falash Mura, are expected to arrive on Tuesday, Jewish Agency spokesman Michael Jankelowitz said.

The new immigrants will be sent to the 21 Jewish Agency "absorption centers" in Israel that deal with Ethiopian immigrants upon their arrival.

In 1984, Israel began bringing Ethiopia's Jewish community to Israel under the Law of Return, which guarantees citizenship to all Jews. That project was mostly completed by 1991.

But the Falash Mura are not considered Jewish under the faith's strict rules because their ancestors converted to Christianity, in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Some have relatives within the Ethiopian Jewish community living in Israel, but they are not eligible to join them under the Law of Return.

In order to successfully emigrate to Israel, they must prove they have a matrilineal Jewish heritage, and agree to convert to Judaism within two years of arriving here, Jankelowitz said.



Israeli governments have authorized the immigration of some 11,000 Falash Mura. Those arriving Monday and Tuesday are the last members of a group of 3,000 who received permission to come to Israel two years ago.

Around 100,000 Ethiopian Jews now reside in Israel.

 

There was controversy a few years ago regarding Israel's reluntance[sp] to make Ethiopian Jews citizens of Israel[even though they are the original Jews].  But the loop hole not to include them is this ridiculous because during the Spanish Inquisition many Jews converted to Christanity on the outside but inside they were STILL practicing their faith.  So how now can Israel FORGET what their people had to do to survive?  Why?  RACISM and gulit.  Cuz they know that they stole this identity from the Orthodox Jews in Ethiopia...centuries ago.  And don't wanna face it today cuz they were very instrumental in selling slaves in that regent in East Africa along with the notorious Arabs.  Just a little history we shouldn't overlook cuz this paegant really is a distraction from the real truth happening with Ethiopian Jews.  They are just using the tactics used in America.  But I see YOU Israel. Instead of aspiring to be a "model," she should take this opportunity to shine the light of those Ethiopians who will not receive their citizenship based on an ill-designed law created solely by Israeli racism.  But I'm sure she won't.  But!       

"she should take this opportunity to shine the light of those Ethiopians who will not receive their citizenship based on an ill-designed law created solely by Israeli racism.  But I'm sure she won't."

I'm sure that you are right about that, because Africans, of all Black people live for the brown nose of kissing White ass.
