1 The attention of the IGBO PEOPLS CONGRESS AND THE IGBO ABORIGINES is brought to the fruitless effort of some genealogical and historical revisionists to associate the Igbos with the Jewish ancestry and root.
2. These people embarrass Ndigbo by trying to associate them with the Jews because of certain attributes and similarities between the two races.
3. They believe that by claiming the Igbos are Jews, it will attract the recognition of the state of Israel.
4. But the truth is that it is the Jews that are actually Igbos. The Jews are Igbos that migrated to the middle East thousands of years ago from Ugwuele area in Okigwe , Imo state. They settled in the Palestine area and later some of them migrated out of the middle East again after the Babylonian captivity and when they were scattered all over the world.
5 Some of them settled at Aguleri in Anambra state and from there to other parts of Igbo land.
6 Invariably therefore, Jews are Igbos and we can therefore also say that Igbos are Jews but not in the sense those who labour to force Igbos as Jews go about it.
Jews should be proud of their Igboness and pay annual homage to their Igbo homeland.
