From Israel National News, (article here):
India's highly influential Communist Party has announced it will fight to prohibit 6,000 members of the Bnei Menashe community from immigrating to Israel.
Israel's Sephardic Chief Rabbi Shlomo Amar announced last week that he would recognize the community's Jewish roots and send rabbinical courts to India to convert them, enabling them to move to Israel under the Law of Return.
"We have heard about exporting weapons and equipment, but it is forbidden to export a community," said Indian Communist party leader Farkish Kret, whose faction holds 18 seats in the Indian parliament.
We're from the government and we're here to help you. We want to protect you, save you, keep you.
