    Are these Beta-Israelis or Ethiopian refugees?

    Btw why are they called "Beta" Israelis? Beta is the ancient greek alphabet for "B". Comes second after Alpha. Is there a meaning or relationship to this?

    But are they looting shops for free luxury goods? I mean the thug scavengers who like to profit from such situations?

    We usually refer to them as Falasha, while officially there isn't violence against Jews in Israel, unofficially, there is a very large cultural division and "elitism" between Ashkenazi, Sephardi, and Mizrahi including with the Ethopian Jews. I view Ethiopian Jews as Jews, I think the division is sad, Ashkenazi sometimes attack the Mizrahi and Sephardi saying they are just converts or Arabs, and also attack the Falasha Jews. On the other hand, the Mizrahi and Sephardi sometimes attack the Ashkenazi and call them Khazars or Germans or Russians, too much division when the reality is a Jew should just be a Jew. I've heard the silliest debates from arguing the proper pronunciation of Hebrew (Personally I believe Yemenite Hebrew to be the only authentic Hebrew), to how to wear a Kippot or Tallit, how to tie the knots of tzitzit.

    It actually comes from the semitic word/root "be[y]t" which means house. Ethiopian Jews are originally Cushitic speakers though, with semitic Ge'ez for liturgy.

    Hebrew has always been evolving, even when Jews were still in Canaan. But I agree, Yemenite Hebrew has preserved almost all the consonants, except for one that is mispronounced.

    Or maybe a human should just be a human?
    Though Ashkenazi Hebrew pronunciation is indeed awful.

    Anyway, not every protest action, even with a violent clash, is a riot.
    Protest and riot are two very misused words.

    Pretty much... In fact Christian Habeshas are slightly closer to Levantines than Beta Israels are and I'm not even joking about that.

    these Ethiopian jews are being treated as "special cases". They are given free apartments, insane benefits and all, simply because nobody expects them to perform anyway. As a group they are as unproductive as Haderim, they also breed like Haderim do.

    Its ashkenazim who established the state, and its them who made it big, so it would be wiser for these Ethiopians to stfu.
