On New Year’s Eve, the St. Charles County, Missouri police stopped a man for a speeding violation. Subsequent investigation established that although the man presented papers indicating that his name is Noble Yahudah Ben YisraEL, and he is a member of the United Nation of YisraEL, his former name is Clarence Holmes; and he was wanted under that name for felonious driving with a revoked license. Unable to pay his $25,000 bail, he was kept in a local jail until April 2.
Holmes, a 28 year old African American, claims The United Nations of YisraEL is an organization of American blacks who demand certain privileges based on their being descendants of slaves. The group insists they are citizens of a sovereign state which exempts them from regulatory laws such as maintaining a state issued driver’s license.
A spokesman for the group said, “We are claiming our heritage was stolen from us because we were brought here against our will. We have a right to self-determination and to declare our own destiny.” He backed up his claim with an assertion that he and his fellow YisraEL citizens can trace their family roots to the ancient Hebrew-Isreali tribes of Africa.
The former Mister Holmes’s arrest record goes back to 1999. Just prior to his latest arrest, he had been released from a local jail, where his “spiritual awakening” led him to legally change his name to Noble Yahudah Ben YisraEL.
No one has challenged the “The United Nations of YisraEL” to prove a connection to any particular group in Africa or anywhere else.
The media is calling this a “clash of cultures”; and a college professor has decided that, “At a certain point, it gets spun as a separate nation deserving of rights.”
This is what we get for electing the most divisive president in our history. Our future certainly holds more Noble Yahudah Ben YisraELs of the “The United Nations of YisraEL,” not fewer.
How long will it be until Sharpton and Jackson start demanding “reparations” for this group and all African Americans?
