Israel Wants to 'Reveal the Truth' Regarding Jewish Immigration from North Africa


Yemeni Jews at a wedding party (AFP/File Photo)The Israeli government intends to unseal historical Jewish Agency documents regarding immigration from North Africa, said Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked on Sunday. “There is no reason that material that deals with the history of the state should not be revealed. We will go over the material and make recommendations to publish it, so long as there are no sensitive issues pertaining to the security of the state,” Shaked said. As such, Shaked said that she would hold a meeting in a month to discuss the opening of the documents. According to the documentary, the state purposefully pursued “mechanisms of deception and coercion, which they applied to those who were, in their eyes, worthless,” in settling Mizrahi immigrants.
