bassy, American Jewish
agencies, the media, Israeli
officials, neighbors and
townspeople. This elite
group concluded that there
is "no official racism" in Is-
rael, and supported Israel's
policy against continued il-
legal infiltration of tourist
groups to join the Black He-
brews. He wisely advised
that the Israeli Customs, in
their precautionary meas-
ures, exercise "impeccable
conduct and dignity" so that
it may not be perceived as
racist and thus aggravate
anti-Israel propaganda.
The above, however,
does not end our sharp
differences with J. A.
Lewin who contradicts
all current and historical
facts. Is Mr. Lewin un-
aware of the revelations
in "Heritage Seekers," by
Israel Gerber, that this
Ben-Ami Carter used
blackmail to obtain
money for kashrut in
Chicago; that he mig-
rated to Liberia as a "soul
Muslim" and was de-
clared to be a parasite by
the Liberian government;
that this group in a pre-
arranged plot descended
upon Israel in the night at
the airport — men,
women, and children —
and demanded to be
taken care of as the right-
ful inheritors of the land
of Israel; that they con-
nived to multiply by il-
legal infiltration as
tourists; that they even
suggested that the pre-
sent Israelis be deported;
that they raided a super-
market, taking the value
of thousands of dollars in
goods, and , staging
scenes for photographers
for anti-Israel prop-
aganda;
That the mayor and citi-
zens of Dimona, at first
helpful, soon learned they
were dealing with parasites
masquerading as reli-
gionists; that this group re-
fused the option of conver-
sion if they wished the bene-
fits of the Law of Return;
that this group prays to
Jesus, practices polygamy,
and were found. fornicating
on the steps of their apart-
ment buildings; that they
are akin to the Jones cul-
tists who ended in mass
suicide in Guyana.
How can Lewin speak of
Israel neglecting them
when the government was
not consulted and was even
defied?
Instead of seeing Ben-
Ami Carter as a pernicious
dictator, Lewin calls him "a
charismatic shepherd of the
flock" and goes on, "like
waiting for Redemption as
he sat down on a leopard
skin throne with an expres-
sion of long suffering for-
bearance."
What mush! Was the
reporter stricken with
_ the spell of the cult when
he has the effrontery to
compare the group, who
thought after the '67 War
that it was "chic to be

Black Hebrews Article Contradicts Facts

Editor, The Jewish News:
The article by J. A. Lewin
published in the Jewish
NeWs Jan. 30, is an ex-
tremely tendentious, distor-
tion of the truth. Lewin
manages to cast Israel, not
as the victim of deception,
opportunism, , and
blackmail, but in the role of
imperialist oppressor.

Jewish," to the sacrifices
of our Halutzim who
came to work on the land
and did not demand lux-
ury apartments for their
families?
Mr. Lewin should prove
his credibility or apologize
to the Jews in Israel and the
Diaspora for his numerous
presumptions.
