a paper on "Bases for
Stereotyping and Discrim-
ination of Minorities in
Parts of Ethiopia," said one
cannot look at Jews' situa-
tion in Ethiopia "in context
of the European experience.
The idea of a pogrom in E-
thiopia is a complete
anathema. There were never
organized attacks against
Jews."
Historically, however, this
was not the case. Ethiopian
kings issued decrees declar-
ing that only Christians
could own land, prompting
the application of the term
falasha, "one without roots,"
to the nation's Jews.
Unable to work as farmers,
the Jews excelled in such
fields as masonry and weav-
ing. Jealous of the Jews'
success, other Ethiopians
began to label them buda,
meaning "one who has the
evil eye." Peasants blamed
the buda for many of their
problems, including illness.
Professor Wagaw, whose
office is decorated with maps
of Israel and a desk
overflowing with papers,
said that despite the cultural
differences, Ethiopian Jews
feel at home in Israel.
"It was good they went,"
he said. "But as an Ethiopi-
an, I'm grieved. I would have
liked to see my country a
home for many different
peoples." ❑

NJCRAC Backs
U.S. Sanctions

New York (JTA) — The
major policy-planning arm of
American Jewry has decided
to continue supporting U.S.
sanctions against South
Africa for the time being.
The decision was made at a
meeting in Chicago of the
executive committee of the
National Jewish Commun-
ity Relations Advisory
Council. NJCRAC repre-
sents 13 national Jewish
organizations and 117 local
Jewish community councils
across the country.
Although the umbrella
group acknowledged there
has been a "clear change" in
South Africa, it decided to
reaffirm its existing position
in favor of U.S. sanctions be-
cause it believes Pretoria
has not done enough to
dismantle the apartheid
system, said Diana Aviv,
NJCRAC's associate ex-
ecutive vice chair.
The European Community
recently voted to relax its
sanctions against the apar-
theid regime.
