Forty years after arriving in Israel as self-identified descendants of Tribe of Judah, first member of Israelite community gets letter from Interior Ministry approving request for citizenship. Ministry says more approvals to follow
Published: 02.03.09, 10:31 / Israel News
"Hallelujah, Hallelujah," members of Dimona's Black Hebrew Israelite community sang out after one of them received a notification that he was eligible for Israeli citizenship.
The first of the Black Hebrews arrived in Israel from the United States and Liberia in December 1969, claiming to be the descendants of the Tribe of Judah.
Upon their arrival the Hebrews settled in the southern communities of Dimona, Mitzpe Ramon and Arad, and have struggled extensively in an attempt to gain recognition from the State of Israel.
Only in August 2003 did the Black Hebrew Israelites get the news they were waiting for when then- Interior Minister, Avraham Poraz granted them the status of permanent residents.
In 2004 members of the community, both men and woman, for the first time joined the Israel Defense Force and began fulfilling their civil duties.
On Monday, 62-year-old Elyakim Ben-Israel made his way to the post office to collect a letter sent by registered mail.
When he opened the letter, Ben-Israel was delighted to find a summons from the Interior Ministry inviting him to go pledge allegiance to the State of Israel and its laws.
"I jumped for joy and ran to the community and we all laughed and cried," Ben-Israel said on Monday.
Ben-Israel said he was the first of the community to renounce his American citizenship at the instructions of the community's leader Ben Ammi Ben-Israel, and filed for Israeli citizenship many years ago.
The Interior Ministry said on Monday that more members of the Black Hebrew community can expect to receive citizenship approval letters.
Director-General of the Interior Ministry Arieh Bar said granting members of the community the promised citizenship was a bold decision on the part of Interior Minister Meir Sheetrit.

In the recorded interview with Lutan Fyah played before he performed at the launch of his 'Africa' double-CD last Tuesday evening, he named Bob Marley as one of the persons who helped spark his creativity.
And guest speaker Mutabaruka also mentioned Bob Marley to the large audience at Weekenz, Constant Spring Road, St Andrew, after asking how can the performers of violent songs say that their music has no influence on those around them.
Influence the world
"And we have artiste like Bob Marley who influence the world? What Bob Marley do, but sing a song?" Mutabaruka demanded.
He noted that there were artistes who were involved with guns and also "not necessarily knife play, but daggering play".
"A artiste a lick out pon politician an' when you look at him life and him music, it worse than what the politician a do," Mutabaruka said. "How can a artiste sey when him sing a song it no influence nobody fe do nutten?" he questioned.
He went on to point out the crucial role of the artiste in the society today, saying "is only the artiste right now the people look towards. So if the artiste is behaving worse than the politician and the preacher we in a serious problem in Jamaica".
"If artiste only imitate what is happening in America we in problem," Mutabaruka said.
He complimented Lutan Fyah on naming and putting out an album called Africa in this "bling time", but cautioned that "a whole heap of the radio station them not going to play it".
"And I tell the brethren don't pay nobody no money to play your album. No payola business to play good music in Jamaica," Mutabaruka said, to applause.
There was more applause when he asked if after all the production fees an artiste really had to pay more money to get a song on the radio, adding that it is time artistes stop paying radio announcers.
Plus, "is the worst music find the biggest money to get the biggest play," he said.
And Mutabaruka closed with a reminder to all of their responsibility towards Africa as well. "We hope many people buy the album and we hope you don't download it for free," he said.

Several persons in the entertainment fraternity who were expected to show their final respects to popular dancer David 'Ice' Smith at his funeral were noticeably absent.
However, just about enough persons turned up at the Our Lady of the Angels Church on Molynes Road, St Andrew, and made it a rather 'happy' thanksgiving service.
Also, most who attended chose to stay outside during the service and used every opportunity to show off their new dance moves and pose for the cameras.
Had they went inside, they just might have filled the church.
Dancehall group Voicemail, deejay Mr G and dancers Sample Six, Sadiki and Keiva were the few members of the 'dancing fraternity' who were spotted hanging outside the church.
Natalie 'Pinky' Smith, sister of the slain dancer, told THE STAR that she had no problem with the absence of some persons as she really was not looking for handouts.
"Keiva called me this morning and told me she had to call somebody else to get my number and I told her 'no problem'. She called to say she would show her support ... If she could do that they could have done that too ... I'm not looking for anything; I'm glad this is over now," she said.
As promised by Tommy Thompson, funeral director and chief executive of Brite Lite Funeral Services, Ice did not get the usual over-the-top dancehall-style funeral.
Most of the women were conservatively dressed and pulled off the look for the occasion.
The men, on the other hand, chose to make fashion statements. Oversize sunglasses, 'blinging' belts, and even scarves completed their attire.
Ice was renowned for his Gully Creepa dance, which received international attention during the Olympics when Usain Bolt performed the move after his victories.
The dancer was gunned down in the early hours of Boxing Day, December 26, 2008, along Newark Avenue, Kingston 11.
The St Andrew Central police said Ice was killed moments after exiting a bar where he had gone to purchase a pack of cigarettes.

Battle hardened Lagosians can tell you what 'Lagos Justice' is. It is 'street justice', meted out in neighborhoods around the city to alleged criminals if they have the misfortune of not being captured by the police first. 'Lagos Justice' usually involves some very graphic acts of violence. In many cases, the alleged criminal is stuffed into a tyre or two, to prevent him/her (usually men, however) from fleeing. The alleged criminal is then set aflame and left to burn alive. Below is a short 33 second clip of 'Lagos Justice' in action. Please be forewarned that this clip is EXTREMELY GRAPHIC.

Police in Nigeria are holding a goat handed to them by a vigilante group, which said it was a car thief who had used witchcraft to change shape.
A police spokesman in Kwara State has been quoted as saying that the "armed robbery suspect" would remain in custody until investigations were over.
But another police spokesman told the BBC the goat was being held in case its owner claimed it.
The belief in witchcraft and the power to change shapes is common in Nigeria.
Police reform activists have condemned the "arrest", saying it highlights the low education levels of many Nigerian police officers.
Nigeria's Vanguard newspaper has a picture of the goat and reports that police paraded it in front of journalists in the Kwara state capital Ilorin on Thursday.
But this was denied by national police spokesman Emmanuel Ojukwu.
"The vigilante group arrested the goat and took it to the police, then they told the media."
The next morning journalists turned up demanding to see the goat, he said.
"But of course goats can't commit crime."
The BBC's Andrew Walker in Abuja says communities often rely on ill-educated and badly prepared vigilante squads to fill the gaps where the police will not patrol at night.
Innocent Chukwuma of the justice reform group the Cleen Foundation, told the BBC that many Nigerian police officers were poorly educated.
"There are officers who don't even have a secondary school education, and the police have a big job to do in finding these people and getting rid of them."
He said in the past political leaders had allowed the police to be filled with incompetent and in some cases criminal officers so they could be easily bought to protect their own criminal activities.
Police have also been unable to stop vigilante squads from lynching suspects before they could investigate, he said.

Nigeria's Super Eagles will play a friendly against the Reggae Boyz of Jamaica in London on 11 February.
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) said the fixture replaces an earlier game planned against West African rivals, Ghana.
The Super Eagles will use the game as a build-up for their World Cup qualifier in March.
"All necessary arrangements for this game has been concluded and the coaches are looking forward to the game in London," NFF spokesman Ademola Olajire told BBC Sport.
"Now we hope the players will have easy access to get to London from their respective club sides.
Nigeria coach Shaibu Amodu is keen to try out as many Europe-based players as possible, especially those who did not make the team for the first round of the 2010 World Cup qualifiers.
Amodu is expected to use the friendly to assess players before they travel to Mozambique for their first World Cup qualifier on 28 March.
Five members of the Nigerian squad at the last Olympic Games in Beijing have been named in the squad for the Jamaica friendly.
Adefemi Olubayo, Sani Kaita, Olufemi Ajilore, Onyekachi Apam and Dele Adeleye have all been called up by Amodu.
Significantly, Michael Eneramo who was considering featuring for Tunisia after he appeared to have been overlooked by Nigeria, has also been called up.
The Esperance striker was weighing his options after overtures from Tunisia.
Both Nigeria and Tunisia are drawn in the same qualifying group for the 2010 World Cup.
Group B also includes Kenya and Mozambique.
