Controversy regarding report on the serious problem of Ethiopian domestic killings

The Immigration and Absorption Ministry has withheld a landmark research project documenting the murder of women in Israel's Ethiopian community. Only sections of the report, completed in 2009, are now coming to light. 

The research was conducted by Dr. Shalva Weil, an anthropologist who has researched Ethiopian Jewry for over 30 years. It offers a comprehensive profile of what Weil claims is the typical wife-killer, based on the examination of 16 such cases and extensive interviews with women and other family members who survived murder attempts.

  1. I'm going to have to hope that the media in Israel will give more time to the issue of Ethiopians killing people than chareidim spitting on people, but I'm not holding my breath.
