`Black Hebrew' Sects
Spread Racism In U.S.

Palm Beach, Fla. — Two
American "Black Hebrew"
sects, both claiming to be "true
descendants" of the biblical Is-
raelites, are causing wide-
spread concern because of their
anti-Semitism and anti-white
racism, according to a report
issued by the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith.
The report documents the
activities and background of
the Miami-based Yahwehs and
the African Hebrew Israelite
Nation of Jerusalem, head-
quartered in Chicago. Both
sects claim that their lineage
goes back to Abraham, who
they say was black. They reject
the legitimacy of the State of
Israel, proclaiming themselves
to be the rightful inheritors of
Jerusalem and the Holy Land.
The Chicago group seeks to es-
tablish a presence in Israel.
Burton S. Levinson, national
chairman of ADL, said that
neither is in any way con-
nected with the thousands of
black Jews of Ethiopian origin
who have been resettled in Is-
rael and are fully accepted as
Jews.
Levinson cited these exam-
ples of the anti-Semitism and
racism of the Yahwehs and the
African Hebrew Israelite Na-
tion of Jerusalem.
• The Yahwehs insist that
blacks are the real "Chosen
People" and label Jews as "im-
posters" who represent the
"Synagogue of Satan."
• Yahweh leader Moses Is-
rael charges that whites are
"mutations of the original
black man" and are "evil,
wicked liars and murderers"
who practice "false white
Christianity."
• The leader of the African
Hebrew Israelites, Ben Ami
Carter, has stated that he
maintains a "close dialogue"
with Louis Farrakhan, who
has called Judaism a "dirty"
religion, has said that he and
Carter have "shared beliefs."
The ADL report said that the
leaders of both Black Hebrew
groups claim to be either the
Messiah or God and invoke the
Old and New Testaments in an
attempt to support their anti-
Semitic and black supremacist
views.
Each of the two sects is said
to have several thousand fol-
lowers, largely recruited from
poor urban neighborhoods.
Their leaders demand strict
obedience and loyalty and have
advocated that their followers
commit mass suicide should
they be threatened by
authorities.
The Yahwehs, a multi-
million dollar organization
with businesses and real estate
in Florida's Dade and Broward
Counties, operate from a head-
quarters in Miami called the

Temple of Love. According to
the ADL report, they claim to
have set up "temples" in 22
states and the District of
Columbia since their founding
in 1979. Rallies in New York,
Kansas City, St. Louis and
Chicago in recent years have
drawn audiences ranging from
1,500 to 3,000 persons.
The Yahweh leader is a 52-
year-old Oklahoman who used
to sing in his family's traveling
gospel troupe and changed his
name to Moses Israel from
Hulon Mitchell, Jr.
His ideology includes a claim
that there is no letter "j" in the
Hebrew language and there-
fore "those who say they are
Jews are liars." He has also as-
serted that the "white man
with his tricks must be re-
moved" and has gone on to
threaten American black lead-
ers who do not subscribe to his
beliefs.
According to former mem-
bers of the Yahwehs, the sect
employs brainwashing tech-
niques.
In April, 1986, New York po-
lice raided two homes used by
the Yahwehs and arrested 11
persons who were sub-
sequently indicted for al-
legedly torturing and beating
children who failed to meet the
cult's money-raising targets.
Also last year, a Yahweh
member was indicted in Miami
for allegedly murdering two
tenants who refused to vacate a
building purchased by the
organization. The Yahwehs'
leader has stated that should
the indicted member be con-
victed, he will be excommuni-
cated from the sect. Both cases
are pending.
In preaching that his group
represents the "true" Jews,
Ben Ami Carter, leader of the
African Hebrew Israelite Na-
tion of Jerusalem, claims that
the "Promised Land" belongs
to the black people of the world.
The group's stated goal is to
bring all blacks to Israel —
and, to make room for them,
Carter has demanded the re-
turn of the "false" Jews to their
countries of origin, such as Po-
land, Russia and Morocco. One
of his "princes" has written
that "the Holocaust was a lie
perpetuated by Jews."
The ADL report notes that
beginning in 1969 the group
sent members to settle in Israel
and that the effort resulted in
conflicts with Israeli religious
and secular authorities, who
have determined that the sect's
followers are not genuine
members of the Jewish faith.
Some have been denied entry.
to Israel and in 1986, Israel ex-
pelled members of the sect who
had been charged by the U.S.
government with racketeering
and fraud.
