Dear Israel: Kick Out the Negroes! Letters from the Israeli Government Archives

I found these letters in the Israeli government archives during the Spring of 2013. Addressed to Israeli leaders, they are personal letters from private citizens, applauding their decision to deport African Hebrew Israelites from the country. There is nothing strange about the fact that U.S. citizens sent these letters to the Israeli government. What is notable is that the Israeli government kept these letters on file for over four decades. What purpose do these letters serve? Were they kept on record because they provide ideological support for the government's anti-African policies? If so, the authors of these letters make for strange bedfellows, as their letters reveal them to be unapologetic racists.

Dear Mrs. Golda Meir,
Have just listened to the news on the TV, and heard that you had refused to allow a group of negroes to land and stay there. I am delighted. You have enough trouble without allowing a lot of negroes to latch onto you. They said they were 'Jews' but they are not. All they want is to make trouble. A Negroe is not a Jew. I am against negroes and Jews mating.
The one thing that Jews have, more than others, is brains. You will have to rely on brains to protect you. Jews, as a group, have no friends. They have to depend on each other. Don't let anyone push you around, and tell you what to do. You know what to do for yourselves, better than anyone else does.
Keep negroes away from the press and cameras. They want to stir up strife. They had a bad time for the past hundred years, but the Jews have suffered for thousands of years, and they don't go around looting, burning and murdering, and spreading venereal disease.
Let's face it, negroes are not civilized now. In time, they may be. Right now, they are so full of hate and venom, you can't expect anything from them but trouble, and a burden to Israel. Rich negroes won't go to settle in Israel. Only the poor trash. The Jews have been good to the Negroes, and all they got in return, was hate and abuse. Jews are fighting for their lives in Israel. They can't afford to take in any more new enemies.
My prayers are with you.
A friend
Augusta Hermon"
