TROUBLED pop queen Whitney Houston is dabbling with a strict Hebrew sect in a bid to sort out her life.
The singer was in Israel with wayward husband Bobby Brown yesterday to find out more about the Jewish group.
The pair also prayed at Jerusalems Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
Whitney, 39, who had a No1 hit with Saving All My Love For You, became interested in the Black Hebrews after her sister-in-law Pat joined them.
They are an African-American community that moved to Israel in 1969 and settled in the southern town of Dimona.
Followers are banned from eating meat, dairy products and sugar and leaders decide who they marry.
They believe in polygamy and ban contraception.
The Sun told on Saturday how former cocaine addict Whitney was rushed to hospital last week.
She had emergency treatment after blood started pouring from her nose after a late-night party.
A source close to Whitney a Christian said: She is very interested in this group and feels they can help her through her troubles. She and Bobby have both connected with the religious leaders in Israel.
Some people have even suggested she has converted to this form of Judaism.
One thing everyone agrees is that anything that keeps Whitney out of trouble is a good thing.
Whitney has had a stormy marriage with rapper Bobby, 34, who has spent time in jail for drugs-related offences.
A little background, as I was not familiar with the Black Hebrews sect founded in Kansas by William Crowdy back in 1896.
Followers believed themselves to be descendants of the original Jews in the Bible claiming that Jesus was Black. They appeal to the African American community using a storyline that has been somewhat successful for the Nation of Islam...the tragedy of a lost heritage and claim their original homeland is not Africa but Israel. They believe that their story began in Ur where Abraham was from and had an affinity with Elamite (a people who were the very first Semitic group mentioned in the Bible in Genesis 10:22). Elamites were a dark-skinned people with wooly hair, and based upon this, B. H. I.s assume that Abraham was black and that black people are the original people.
Ben Israel(known to authorities as Ben Carter from the south side of Chicago), started The Kingdom of Yahweh, about 1967. B. H. I.s believe that as a direct result of disobedience to the laws and the commandments of God the Hebrew, Israelites were held captive by various nations and in 70 C.E. remnants were driven from Jerusalem, by Romans, into various parts of the world, including Africa. They believe that blacks were enslaved and brought to America because of this and that this led to the remnants being spread abroad.
Israel and 350 people from Chicago, journeyed to Liberia, West Africa on their way to Israel(1969), forming what they believed to be the foundation for the kingdom of God. In 1986,Israel and his aide, Prince Asiel Ben Israel were convicted of trafficking stolen passports, securities and forging checks and saving bonds.
In the 1980s a new sect was formed in Miami,a counterpart to Ben Israel's, by Yahweh Ben Yahweh ( known by the authorities as Hulon Mitchell, Jr.) Yahweh,a former Black Muslim, ran a Black Muslim mosque in Atlanta in the early 1970s, until he was accused of sexual improprieties with underaged Muslim girls and of dipping into the collection plate. During a six-month period in 1973 and 1974, when Mitchell was a high-ranking member of the Nation of Islam, an elite group inside the Nation of Islam called the "Death Angels" murdered several hundred White men, women, and children. The exact number will never be known because many of the victims were so-called "street people": runaway teenaged girls on drugs, hippies, and the like people who weren't missed when they disappeared writes Dr. William Pierce - The Saga of Yahweh ben Yahweh.
Members of "The Nation of Yahweh" (N.O.Y.)including Hulon Mitchell(Yahweh) were arrested in 1990 of conspiring to commit RICO; and although they were not found guilty of the RICO charge, Yahweh was sentenced to serving an eighteen-year sentence for another crime - he and followers had butchered and mutilated at least 23 men, women, and children, 14 of them in Miami alone. Mitchell preached to his whole congregation that the killing of White people, whom he calls "blue-eyed devils," is pleasing to Yahweh.
Mitchell was freed in 2001. The NYO sect is often referred to as a killer cult.
Now I am not saying Houston is thinking of joining a "killer cult" as there are several sects; but do these sects/cults seem to have their foundations based on a "religion of peace"?
"I'M SAVING ALL MY LOVE FOR HEBREW..."
WHITNEY (staring at Sharon's empty hand, disbelievingly): "Why, no, Mister Sharon... I don't believe I have ever heard of 'invisible crack,' now that you mention it. And it's all for me, you say...?"
I agree with you on this one. And this is definitely a cult. I sure hope some of her real Christian friends save her soon. This sounds more like BB's kind of thing to me.
Are these any relation to the Black Israelites, the disgusting racists of New York Public Access Cable fame?
There's a reason why in the Scriptures (Bible), it says:
2 Corinthians 6:14 -- Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
Bobby and Whitney are for-real, a true case-in-point.
You watch those guys, too?
What a gas - the costumes and all that "hate speech" stuff - some people are willing to believe anything, but the Truth.....
