Man, Myth Magic Moses & Spirituality.

Post by Who2 »

Let me tell you a story.....
Once upon a time..

Yours truly was once on a flight out of Athens into Ben Gurion Israel about 1977.
I sat at the rear next to the toilet and rear crew,
as the plane slowly filled with quite a few nervous looking people coming onboard,
2 young ladies approached and were seated behind opposite the aisle.
Then a real old and I do mean old gentleman was positioned next to me.
Long white beard flowing robes the lot, he looked like Gandalf.
Ps: The two young jittery girls behind grasped a large wooden ceremonial staff type-thing,
to be wrested for safekeeping buy highly agitated female hostesses.

This was going to be an interesting flight I've had many, this one's a doozy.

Why ? This dropped into my intray:

These people were all Ethiopian Falasha Jews, something I never knew or let alone had ever encountered.
Anyhow back to the plane..
The old man held a broken framed black & white photo of a young boy in army fatigues.
I indicted and he handed me this sad old picture, whence I easily repaired the broken frame.
He smiled & thanked me in yiddish, 'lawhaala!

The hostess plonked down the standard inflight tray of 'whatever, offered me coffee ignoring my new pal.
I reminded her "somebody had paid for his flight.
He proceeded to follow my every move I made, removing plastic wrapped rolls, lids off trays, ect.
I dispensed with the plastic wrapped plastic cutlery opting using my fingers instead, clever!
"always at 'one with the common man me...
'chicken and rice'

We didn't speak but an understanding and warmth developed between us.
Still being stared at by the two fretfully popping up and down daughters ? acolytes ? temple maidens ?
who knows....
Anyhow toilet time explanation, location was required this should be fun.
nb: Also, one could smoke on planes then..
And I'm pretty sure that this lot, the only planes they had ever encountered before,
where those 'silver flying birds high up above their skies.

Anyhow that was all cool until disembarkation, normally my mates collected me off the tarmac,
but I wanted to watch this.
All these cowhide boxes tied up with string flowed up baggage retrieval with 'tripe ? seeping out.
Walking outside only to be surrounded by loads of TV newsfeed camera crews and hundreds of welcoming,
mournful, clapping, shouting, crying people. 'Surreal to say the least!

Turns out the old boy was some top Ethiopian Jewish leader and was on the last plane out.
It was called Operation Moses I found out later.... 8)

Ps: Operation Moses was the brainchild of then Associate U.S. Coordinator for Refugee Affairs, Richard Krieger. After receiving accounts of the persecution of Ethiopian Jews in the refugee camps, Krieger came up with the idea of an airlift and met with Mossad and Sudanese representatives to facilitate the Operation.
Pss: Schindler ? The ring was inscribed "Whoever saves one life saves the world entire.
P*ss: It was more like 1983/4 time and dementia...
