"Gilaad Ben Zoma" is an Israeli name, although "Gilaad" can be Arabic as well. I think the reason some people think he's black is because when he appeared in a flashback in DC's TNG comic, the colorist gave him very dark skin for some reason. But I chalk that up to a coloring error.
Not unlike how the cover of that Mission Gamma book confused a lot of people about the ethnicity of Prynn Tenmei.

I tend to imagine Oded Fehr as Ben Zoma.

Oded Fehr in anything can only be for the good.
