The Black Jews Were Planted In Malabar By Nebuchadnezzar

Source: The One Primeval Language Traced Experimentally Through Ancient Inscriptions in Alphabetic (Oxford University) 1854 "I would observe only, that the denomination Joud or Aioud is applied indiscriminately, in the East, to the whole Hebrew race; as we see, at the present day, in the instance of the Black and White Jews of Cochin.

Source: In Favor of Politicizing Jewish Identity It is impossible to rationally explain why the Igbos of Nigeria are not recognized as Jews when Ethiopian Beta Israel are. (Haaretz) 2011 A.D. From the source "It is impossible to rationally explain why the Igbos of Nigeria are not recognized as Jews when Ethiopian Beta Israel are.

There are also calls for Israel's non-Jewish citizens to take an oath of loyalty to the Jewish state. Foreign workers are…
