From their perspective, that not only would restore an important, traditional strategic alliance but also would reenergize the Falasha aliyah. REUVEN MERHAV: A T U R N I N G POINT In the autumn of 1989, Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir had authorized the ingathering of the Falashas, and Reuven Merhav was assigned the responsibility for overseeing Israel's policy toward Ethiopia. Merhav had been a high official in the "Office of the Prime Minister," the discreet Israeli term for the Mossad, and had served in Ethiopia as well as Kenya and Iran.

This had the incidental effect of threatening to actualize the Doomsday Scenario: the Beta Israel might be slaughtered in a fight for the capital or in the chaos that might occur before the new rebel regime was firmly in place. At the same time, though, with Mengistu out of the picture, it was more likely that, when the Jews did leave Addis, the entire community would be permitted to go. At this moment of danger and opportunity, Israel put the rescue in motion. The United States provided crucial assistance, asserting its influence with both the Ethiopian government and the rebels.

By any logic, the Israelis faced an insoluble problem. They wanted the Jews but had determined not to give weaponry for them. The Ethiopians, for their part, wanted the arms but did not want to give up the Falashas, certainly not all of them. If they did, they feared that Israel and the Americans would lose interest in Ethiopia. The Ethiopians also calculated that a gradual Falasha exit would guarantee them an ongoing source of cash from Israel. And, ultimately, Mengistu felt that he needed to keep at least some of the Jews as a shield against a final rebel attack on Addis.
