In 1976, while on a teaching fellowship in Canada,
a Nigerian student from the Igbo tribe approached me,
to tell me the Igbo are Hebrews,
that some years ago, Christian missionaries told them,
that the massiah has come,
convincing many to convert to Christianity.
He told me that the more he acquired education,
he became convinced the Igbo are Hebrews,
because that was the tradition and belief in the tribe,
before the conversion to Christianity.
It is now 2012.
A new video and documentary renews the claim that the igbo are Hebrews.
I wonder if Israel will face this challenge with wisdom.
I hope it does.
The video speaks for itself.
