JERUSALEM — Israeli
Interior Minister Yosef
Burg told the Knesset
Tuesday that he was op-
posed to a plan that would
resettle Israel's 1,400
"Black Hebrews" in the
Negev.
The "Black Hebrews,"
mostly illegal immigrants
from the U.S. who claim to
be descendants of the an-
cient tribes of Israel, would
be offered citizenship under
the .plan after five years.
Burg, however, opposed
the plan. He said he would
not seek their expulsion

from Israel but hoped the
government would urge
them to leave.
The Jerusalem Post re-
cently published unsub-
stantiated charges that
the Black Hebrews vic-
timize some of their
members by withholding
food and their passports.
Officials say they are
worried about a possible re-
peat of the Jonestown,
Guyana massacre in which
hundreds of American cul-
tists committed suicide.

Arabs Gaining
in Jerusalem

JERUSALEM (ZINS) —
According to the newspaper
Haaretz, in the 13 years
since Jerusalem was unified
the Jewish population has
grown by 50 percent (from
195,000 to 290,000), while
the Arab population of the
city has grown by 72 percent
(from 65,000 to 111,000).
