    In the Spirit of Sankofa,




    .......Israel rejects black Hebrews as Jews

    DIMONA, Israel - In Chicago, kindergarten teacher Samaheyah Bat-Yisrael says her life was "desolation." But in this hardscrabble Negev desert town, she says she has found her "salvation."

    Calling themselves the African Hebrew Israelites of Jerusalem, their origins are rooted in their charismatic leader, Ben Ammi Ben Israel. Ben Ammi, who was a foundry worker named Ben Carter in Chicago, had a vision in 1966 that his African ancestors were descended from one of the 10 lost tribes of Israel.

    Since 30 disciples followed him to Israel in 1969, the community has established many celebrated professional gospel choirs and R&B singing troupes, sent their Hebrew-speaking offspring to Israeli universities and even represented the country in the annual European-wide Eurovision Song Contest.

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,



    .......Its somewhat difficult to decipher what you mean with the statement/question: this comes as surprise?...Is this sarcasm or genuine concern you project? Probably sarcasm.

    Nevertheless, it comes as information for this Study Group Forum, perhaps some will find interesting.


    Peace In,

    This article is about 10 years old. Any update that you know of? A few weeks ago I was reading a few articles concerning Israel's crackdown on the Falashas immigrants and I think they are trying to curtail the Hebrew Israelites which I think are now more than a single group.

    Here is a more recent article on their condition (2004). Notice this now include Black immigrants from England as well. One thing that I need to point out is that the African Hebrew Israelites and distinct from the Black Hebrew Israelites which do NOT consider Africans as Israelites, and refer to Africans as "Hamites" and "Edmites". They refer as "Shemetic" and cling to the KJV Bible.

    The African Hebrew Israelites and the promised land

    People of the Hebrew Israelite ‘kingdom’ believe now is the time for African-Americans and black British to make their Exodus to Israel.
    I visited the African Hebrew Israelites community in the town of Dimona, and toured Israel with them. Here is my account:
    Published in New Nation, 19/01/2004
    Preaching a return to the spiritual homeland of black people in the Holy Land of Israel, the African Hebrew Israelites have developed a thriving community in what they call Northeast Africa.
    And returning to reclaim the land once home to black people before white Christian crusaders invaded Palestine in 70AD, people of the Hebrew Israelite ‘kingdom’ believe now is the time for African-Americans and black British to make their Exodus to Israel.

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,




    .......Perhaps you are correct on the age of the article, though this thread is a brainchild resulting from this conversation and prior knowledge of Ben Ammi Ben Israel:


    The "black Isrealites" And Disorganization
