The article's remarks about Zanzibar are incorrect. The putsch did not take place in 1965 but in 1963, led by a self-appointed "field marshal" John Okello. Thousands of Arabs and Indians were massacred. The crimes were documented by the Italian director Jacopetti and shortly afterward shown in the film "Africa Addio" - a sequence so horrible that I will never forget it. The putsch was not about "pro-Arab policy" or because the Arabs were "descendents of slave-merchants". It was purely racist, Zanzibar lost almost all of its economic ties and has never recovered from the downfall. It is interesting that Kimche allegedly was on the spot at that time, but I doubt that he could have directed the putsch in any way. Fairy tales and intelligence work stick together like rubber and glue.
