by Bro. Fahim A. Knight-El
Peace: family and friends, I am always searching and looking for topics and issues that relates and impact the African American community (I found no topic more fitting than to discuss Health, Nutrition, Diet and Wellness). Some of my immediate family members and even close friends have had some serious health challenges and I can remember being in the  hospital with a very close relative of mine during a major heart surgery and my daughter told me that her mom, which is my wife had posted a photo of this family member on Facebook. She was being transparent about this close relative health a little more than I wanted her to be, but she thought that by posting this particular health situation on social media, it would inform those in the black community of need to become more health conscious. It was her way of keeping people updated with this personal matter, it was a honorable thing to do, because many in the black community had personal relations with this brother and friend. I got that but I have always felt health was something personal and I still struggle with aspects of being transparent even with my wife and my family in this area.

I would be remised, if I did not briefly mention the loss of one of the greatest natural healers in the world named Dr. Sebi who was assassinated in a Honduras, Central America jail. Dr. Sebi was a homeopathic specialist who was a master of herbal science and natural medicine, he was accused in the State of New York of practicing medicine without a license and was indicted in a federal court and his cased made all the way to the Supreme Court. The allegations were that he had falsely cured patients of AIDS and stage four cancer by using herbal and natural treatments and therapies, which went against occidental medicine. Dr. Sebi demonstrated proof that indeed he had cured black people from various diseases and he was one of the few natural healers who took on the American Medical Association and the conglomerate pharmaceutical companies (legal complaints against Dr. Sebi were initial filed by United States Department of Agriculture and the Center For Disease Control) and won standing on the medicinal principles of herbal and natural healing as being effective treatments. This past May 2016, Sebi who was 82 years of age and was reentering Honduras where he was a  naturalized citizen (I do think Dr. Sebi had dual citizenship) and he had declared $27,000 USD, but he was arrested on charges of money laundering and placed in a depilated jail in a 'third world' country (poor food, poor living condition and plenty of prison corruption). Honduras officials had a previous charge on Dr. Sebi of  so-called smuggling in $55,000 USD, which had been adjudicated, but they attempted to run these two cases concurrent. We do know this much Dr. Sebi the Natural Healer died in the custody of the Honduras Government of so-called complications from pneumonia (now, for the record Dr. Sebi was more than capable of dealing with a mucous virus). I think there was some foul play in Dr. Sebi's death the powers-that-be did not want people being cured and healed from cheaper natural therapies. We should call for President Barack Obama and the U.S. Justice Department and the State Department to open up an investigation into the Honduran Government and truly find out what happened to Dr. Sebi.         

Now, before I delve into this topic on health, diet, nutrition and wellness let me say a few words to my African American brothers; brothers listen to your wives and get up and go get those annual physicals (we as black men must take better care of ourselves)--prostrate cancer (we should get regular PSA screenings) is killing us at a very high rate and, if you are over 50 years of age (black men hate to go to the doctor until we are almost dead) get a colonoscopy from a natural homeopathic doctor or specialist, because colon cancer is taking us out as well. To my beautiful Nubian Queens stay on us, because you need your husbands and your children need their fathers. If you do not know this by now many of us are walking a round having the silent killer high blood pressure (Hypertension), but you can cure yourselves with a vegan diet, exercising and making better life choices (brothers give up the smoking, alcohol, and the drugs lets start right there). Lets make commitment to changing our life styles, so that we can have life and life more abundantly. There is no room for big ego machoism and/or exercising male testosterone in this equation our health could be a matter of life and death.          

I just wanted to thank those family members and friends who prayed for a family member of mine during the time of him being hospitalized and I still remain more than grateful for the outpouring of love. I am a very reflective type person, so I am constantly reflecting on every event that I am involved in, every person that I meet, every conversation that I have, every church sermon I hear, every movie I see, every text or phone call I receive and I keep a mental journal, because I am not that good in writing things down relative to recording my daily thoughts in a daily diary. My mother for years who lives in Northern New Jersey would call me every day and she would recite these long extended prayers and she would always ended with in the name of Jesus!!!!!!!!!. And trust me my momma can pray.

The medical team would come by each morning to make their daily rounds and they would say my family member, how are you doing today? and he would answer, Doc. I am prayed up. But during these hospital visitation I would make my rounds every day (LOL) and check on the other patients. There were a lot of sick people who were hospitalized and were suffering from heart disease, kidney disease, suffering from various types of cancers, lung disease, obesity, etc. Thus, I knew that we as black people were being plagued by these debilitating and killer diseases more than any other race. We meaning black people, we do not like to talk about the importance of good health and nutrition, but what we eat and consume is taking us to an early grave. Our mortality rate have negatively increased within last 30 years, which has negatively impacted our overall life expectancy rate.

This translate to mean that my generation will not out live our parents and another very sad statistics is that our children will not out live us. Brother and sisters, we are in trouble and in a time of crisis. Many traditional black communities are located in Food Deserts, which means that there are very few good wholesome food markets where our people can purchase wholesome affordable foods that are non-Genetically Modified Organism (GMO), thus food that has not been genetically altered and chemically produced and treated with dangerous-poisonous pesticides. These type produced foods are highly toxic, but they make their way into the market place (often shipped to the poorest communities that fits a certain demographic). I am here to tell you and inform my community, that what we eat have long term and short term implications on our health. You should eat nothing but organic fruits and vegetables, and ask whether or not these produce are GMO grown, if so run the other way. Do not eat any fish that has been tagged farm raise this fish is very dangerous for your health, because it is toxic. Look to purchase salmon that is labled wild Alaskan caught and wild caught sardienes ( certain fish is high in Omega 3 oils and have been known to prevent certain cancers).  

Black women are dying at an alarming rate from breast cancer and black man are dying equally at an alarming rate of heart disease and prostrate cancer. We have become an obese society overweight, not only are we consuming to much food, but the wrong types foods. Many of us are still eating pork, beef, chicken in which our poultry and cattle have been injected with artificial hormones and poisonous enzymes to fatten them up for the markets. We have been eating posinious animal flesh and fail to see the connection to heart disesase, diabetes, and cancers (all of this is interrelated); you cannot depend on the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and/or United States Department of Agriculature (USDA) to oversee and police the pharmaceutical and  food industry thus this is ultimately about big money and capitalist interest and oftentimes the USDA is in cohorts with the big conglomerate food producers and growers. Your health in the United States plays out as a distance second to those who seek profit over insuring that the American people are getting high quality food.

I am tired of attending funerals of our people dying prematurely from these dreaded diseases, that have been created in the laboratory of the wickedly wise. Many of us have adopted this insane axiom that my whole family was raised off pork and my grandmother lived to be 100 years old eating pork but there are people in the Bible that lived to be 900 years old (so in comparison to the biblical truths your grandmamma lived a relatively short life). We are dying extremely to young. What are we eating fatty foods (that is high in calories and often low in nutritional value); here is a quick tip if you buy rice, sugar, flour, etc. if it is white in coloring it has been bleached and is automatically bad for you to eat; purchase organic brown staples and stay completely away from white anything--Organic Basmati whole grain rice, which is much better for you to eat.

I know some of us are shy about going to these Asian markets (please checking out the Indian, Japanese, Korean, Chinese grocers and Latinos markets--trust me start shopping with them, in particular go into their natural herbs and herbal product section (you will find an abundance of herbs medicinal spices--also African and Caribbean stores have good herbal sections as well) . They have food and medicinal herbs and products that have been used for healing for thousands of years--Royal Jelly and Tea Tree Oil, Golden Seal (what I call food medicines). When you see these international markets go in there and shop (some of them are better than health food stores and the pricing is much fairer than Whole Foods or Trader Joes).

The best remedy for common cold is ECHINACEA, Cinnamon root, Ginger, and organic lemon. If need something to keep you regulated there is a herbal remedy called CASCARA SAGRADA (take at night and position yourself by the bathroom in the morning) taking ex-lax and other drugs for constipation says that you are fully of sh... and you are poisoning your body. You should have at least three bowel movements per day these synthetic chemical drugs are negatively affecting our digestive tract and is the root cause of digestive system cancers (pancreatic cancers, colon cancer and rectum cancer). Now, what I really recommend in these cases are to eat more organic and non-GMO fruits and vegetables and get yourselves on a high fiber diet (unbleached whole wheat, beans, grains, raisins, dates, certain nuts and eat plenty of organic leafy vegetables that well create the roughage you need to properly help you digest your food and create better bowel movements (drink plenty of water).

I am your brother and I pleading with you to stop cooking and eating fried food today that grease only helps clog up our arteries and contributes to heart disease (you should use extra virgin olive oil because Hydrogenated oil contains trans fats and this is artery blocker and a killer). Your health is the most important thing in your life, it does not care about how much money you have without good health you have nothing. The Chinese taught us about ginger root (eleuthero ginger) every household should keep plenty of ginger (the healing principles are invaluable).

The United States has corrupted the balance of nature and disrupted the ecological system so much that the universe is starting to turn on man; the bees are becoming extinct and our crops are not being pollinated as they once were, because the use of pesticides have killed off the honey bees and now they have to import bees from other parts of the world and even have bee farms. Help me lord we are in trouble. The best honey is ORGANIC WILD COLLECTED RAW HONEY and another good sweetner is EGAGVE. 

Brothers and Sisters find you a good Homeopathic practitioner who practice alternative medicine. The next thing is to invest in a good juicer and/or blender that you can start taking organic carrots, organic celery, organic apples and wheat grass in blend wholesome drinks and stop sugar drinks today and you will see immediately weight lost because often diseses all feed off sugar in your system. When my daughter was an infant, she would be whining and would be having a difficult time going to sleep there is a natural soothing tea called catnip tea (very natural and it works like a sedative). You should never give your babies formula or cow milk--the best milk for your babies is the breast milk that God has giving to you as mothers (no substitutes nursing your babies) the nipple suckling even helps heal the woman's womb after child's birth, if you eat a vegan and/or vegetarian diet your babies will never be sick with colds, colliclky, and high fevers. Stop feeding and giving your babies this poisonous formula and we do not know whats in those manufactured cans. It is a damn shame that in some counties and socities in Europe the woman is giving two years of maternity leave in order to tend to her needs and baby needs--this is a very humane gesture and in the United States our women get six to eight weeks this is not enough time for the woman to bond with her baby.

Aloe Vera plant it has many medicinal usages (you can drink certain type Alea Vera or used it as a healing cream and moisturizer a lot of good medical principles in this plant), Shea Butter if you have rashes and skin problems such as eczema it works miracles. But often it you are experiencing skin and rash disorders you probably have way to much acidic food intake and you definitely are not consuming enough distilled water (the best water is pure well water from the country or from some uncontaminated water mountainous stream). Our bodies is over 75 percent water; you must drink plenty of water.   

Black children having Attention Defecit Disorder (ADD), Down Syndrome, Autism, etc. (these conditions are correlated to the food our children are eating, which often is fast food and cookware where we are preparing the food in aluminum cookware--throw them pots out today (the aluminum gets into your food and it is poisonous). What our children eat not only affects behavior but it impacts I.Q. and intelligence. I know this is going to take some aback, but you should never allow your children to be inoculated and vaccinated; some may say this is ridicules,  if you think so just Google search the Tuskegee Experiment and start reading about the Tuskegee Expeiment in which the United States Government was behind thousands of  black men be giving Syphillis and allowed to go back to the black community to contaminate their woman with venereal disease  (STD). I called it genocide. Just recently from the highest levels of government in the State of Michigan that systematically allowed private and municipal entities to supply the people of Flint, Michigan with poisonous lead based water; our people were allowed to consume deadly carcinogen and contaminated drinking water so don't tell me what the government will not do.

Every kitchen should have some of the basic herbs such as rosemary, sage, garlic, cayenee pepper, organic onions and of the most powerful herbs that should be used in the kitchen is Turmeric (it has a lot of medicinal principles) and very next thing you should do is throw all your salt in the trash, I do not care if its Sea Salt or what ever type salt all salt is extremely bad for your health. But those that got to have that salt taste try Braggs (liquid Aminos All Purpose Seasoning). I am sorry to inform you brothers and sisters all meat products are dangerous (and in this day and time it is ill-advised to continue eating flesh and continue expecting good results in which this is contributing to our  community dying of preventable illiness and diseases, because we have contracted heart disease, diabetes and cancer (most of these aliments can be preventable and controlled by proper diet and nutrion); moreover, we can end some of this today by just changing how we eat (also we should fast three days out of each month).

They load our communities up with fastfood restaurants (it only means fast death), Mc Donald's, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Cookout, Churches Chicken,Wendys, Dominos, Papa Johns, Zaxby's, Chick-fil-A, and you wonder why your children are getting their menstrual periods at seven and eight years old and are growing breast at seven, it is because of the hormone and enzyme injected food that you are giving them (we are sentencing our children to an early death) and many of them are obese. Mommas and daddys it is time to get back into the kitchen and start cooking and preparing your own foods. Thus, get your mouths out of the enemies kitchens and by not cooking anymore we are sentencing our family to a death sentence, we can beat cancer diabetes, kidney disease, heart disease, hypertension, etc., and any other chronic diseases.

My Analysis on the United States and Cuba ’s New Diplomatic Relations

My Analysis on the United States and Cuba ’s New Diplomatic Relations and Foreign Policy Initiatives: What Will the Cuban Youth Have to Say About this New Course?

By Fahim A. Knight-El

I have always had a political and culture infatuation with the island nation of Cuba . I became exposed to a book some years ago titled, "Assata: An Autobiography", written by an African American woman named Assata Shakur (aka JoAnne Chesimard) and I have had this book in my library for number of years and I put it on my reading list to re-read based on new current international political events that have taking place between the United States and Cuba. Assata Shakur was a former Black Liberation Army member who was convicted of killing a white New Jersey State Police officer on the New Jersey Turnpike in the early 1970s and was sentenced in a federal court to serve a life of incarceration and has now lived in exile for over 40 years.

She escaped from a woman’s federal prison in Morganton, West Virginia . It was her book titled, "Assata: An Autobiography", that inspired me to wanting to know more about the political, economic and social landscape of Cuba and its people. Shakur was considered to be a militant revolutionary activist who was deeply engaged in the Black Liberation movement and struggle in the late 1960s and 1970s (that perhaps was inspired by the Black Power movement led by Black Panthers organizers Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seales and Stokely Carmichael who radicalized the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee). Upon her escape from U.S. federal custody, she was granted political asylum from President Fidel Castro and has lived in exile in Cuba for close to forty years.

Thus, as Cuba opens up, I would like to be engaged in a fact find mission and to do a documentary of sort, in particular focusing on the Cuban youth and talking with the young people of Cuba and getting their viewpoint on what it’s like living under a Socialist government, but exploring these set of questions strictly from the minds of the Cuban youth. And getting their perspectives relative to assessing and evaluating the Socialist ideology from a political, economic and social vanish point, as well as, getting their views on the United States inspired Hip-Hop culture. Furthermore, exploring what’s been the culture impact Hip-Hop has had on the Cuban youth relative to analyzing both the social and political influences the genre have implored around the world. I would also like to engage the Cuban youth on their perception of the recent so-called normalized and diplomatic relations with the United States (pros and con analysis). And how they felt about the prior economic sanctions and embargoes that had been imposed against Cuba for over fifty years, now that they are being uplifted and do they feel that these new U.S-Cuba foreign policy initiatives will benefit the Cuban people.

I would also like to know, from the Cuban youth about their views and perspectives on their past leader and Commandeer Fidel Castro (the standard bearer of the revolution) who was viewed by some of the outside world as a controversial leader ever since he took office in 1959, and just how much they know about the Cuban Revolution (based on the demographics that I would like to speak to none of them would have been born when Castro overthrew the former Cuban leader Fulgencio Batista). And what are their perspectives on American style Democracy and would they like visiting the United States in order to get a firsthand view of the American people and the American culture.

I would like to use my activism and social agitation knowledge and energy to encourage the Cuban Government and the United States Government, as well as the United States educational institutions of higher learning to consider the educational benefits of pursing a student exchange initiatives with Cuba . I would begin by lobbing American universities and colleges board of governors and/or the board of regents to do everything in their powers to work towards establishing an educational pilot program that is based on a student exchange initiatives between the two nations, which would allow both nations (Cuban and American) university level students to get the international experience of studying abroad. Also, I would use my activism experience to galvanize alliances with progressive groups and organizations in order to work in corroboration and perhaps the idea would eventually expand to all levels of our society.

We no longer can allow isolationism, as it has done over the last 50 years to deny us as Americans and Cubans who are in such close geographic proximity of having friendly and mutual relations with this Latin American nation, being just 90 miles away from Florida and not to have had normalized relations for over five decades was politically ludicrous. In addition, my daughter is a African dancer and my son is an African drummer and they too would also like use her involvement in the arts and studying African dance under the world renowned African dance chirographer Chuck Davis (He has been the face of African dance in Durham for over 40 years and is considered a master African dance instructor and professor Emeritus) and create cultural exchanges and talking points with such a culturally rich nation. They are interested in breakdown any visible political or invisible culture barriers by using the arts to neutralize political impediments and differences by evoking culture initiatives and would like to choreograph dances that speak to the universality of the arts.

It has become a sense of urgency for me, personally, because I would like to be engaged in my study and research before the capitalist and the big corporate conglomerates begin their possible remake of this island nation, which appeared to have stood still politically, economically, and socially for over fifty year (and in doing so, it has preserved the integrity of the people and culture). I know with the new political relations that now exist between Havana and the United States government, it’s going to inspire corporate interest and perhaps provide increasing international business interest in Cuba. This island nation that has somewhat lingered in obscurity for over a half of century, is now receiving a lot of attention from the United States and the western world; this is mainly because of the new diplomacy agreements that President Barack Obama and President Raul Castro have signed on to. I personally think it is a mistake for Cuba to go down this course with the United States Government and we can only hope and pray that this new diplomacy course does not turn out to be reactionary and lead to the betrayal of the revolutionary principles, which has come define this Island nation for over 55 years.

But they are not obligated to use the same strategies and tactics of previous comrades, but they do have an obligation and duty to review the past struggles; either to confirm those principles and tenets as being valid or determine them as being flawed. Only history will provide us with the proof that an organization or movement has met the standards of being classified as progressive and worked in the interests of the people’s revolution. And yet simultaneously, it also, allows us the ability to analyze them to determine if they were reactionary and contradictory and will have a counter-revolutionary affect on the present day struggle and must be dismissed. Perhaps some would argue that the time has come for the United States and Cuba to redefine history and in lieu of progressive foreign and international policy to abandon this policy that was rooted in old era of the Cold War in particular the international politics that were aligned to the former Soviet Union (or Warsaw Nations) and those nations who tied to the United States and the West via NATO.

This new international diplomatic legislation and foreign policy course between the United States and Cuba, has given proof positive and confidence in how important these present foreign policy initiatives were so long over due—this is evident in the renewed interest in Cuban tourism by the American people and people from around the world, is trying to get a firsthand look at this once isolated Socialist country. However, I would also like to inspire the Cuban youth to view their nation (preserved culture as their national treasure) and do everything in their power to protect it. But I know the digital and information age have created technological advantages and as this Socialist nation continues to evolve, it is just a matter of time that the tech giants will be in Cuba—and as they embrace the global society this will create a new Cuba. The coming of social media: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Vine, etc., and Internet functions without borders and there is no doubt the informational superhighway will create a high level of excitement amongst the young Cuban population (for better or worse).

Yet, the preserved architecture heritage of Cuba should not be negated or overlooked and in my opinion, must remain a priority, because it is indeed a national treasure (that has international cultural and artistic implications) and they must be willing to continue to preserve the architecture beauty and the historical value it has relative to past structural designs and the colonial building styles in which some of the edifices go back to 16th and 17th century when the Spanish occupiers had colonized Cuba.

I would guess that as Cuba continues to open up; those builders and developers that specializes in creating exquisite resorts and five star hotels plans, perhaps are already on the drawing board along with other ideas to attract and enhance tourism, as well as seeking to economically exploit the projected business interest that a new Cuba will bring—the beach front properties and shorelines with sprawling hotels, restaurants and condos will be the new architecture designs and models. Surely, this type of business interest will increase revenue into Cuba ’s weak and struggling economy, but it will come with a hefty price whereas venture capitalist will put making money over Cuba ’s historical preservation and pristine value. I pray to God that I am able to experience Cuba as it is today and before the new development take place and conduct my study prior to the island becoming completely influenced by U.S. and Western culture. I do not want a tainted view of Cuba , but my interest is the old Cuba that still exists today as I write this blog.

Also, I have read Eric Williams book titled, "Capitalism and Slavery", and he delved into the economic impact the Transatlantic slave trade had on Cuba, in particular and Caribbean nations in general, I have read where Cuba in 1925 was ninety (90) percent black and African in which I am equally intrigued with the Afro-Cuban experience and the culture linkages between indigenous African culture and Africans who were displaced throughout the Diaspora. I still think that historians, archaeologists, anthropologists, paleontologist, sociologist and social scientist in general, still have a lot to learn about the Cuban society and its people. Also I would like to hear the Cuban youth views on race and racism, in particular knowing that the Cuban people have a large spectrum of colors and hues that makes up the nation of Cuba . There is no doubt, that the past miscegenation practices and/or rape of African women and indigenous women of that region by the Spaniards (ethnic and racial foot prints), which have left a light skinned mulatto Cuban and there are those Cubans who are very dark skinned and it is evident that they are closely akin to the former African slaves.

I would like to conduct an empirical investigational study on race and race relations in Cuba in order to determine does racism exist and does it have the same affect as American style racism. I believe the Cuban youth will speak with honesty and candor about issues of race. Now, going briefly back to the exiled and self proclaimed prisoner of war and revolutionist Assata Shakur; I would like to remain optimistic, that if the U.S and Cuba signs an extradition treaty, it would not include the Cubans turning over Assata Shakur and putting her in the grasp of the long arms of Homeland Security and the U.S. Patriot Act. I am of opinion, that her international legal status must have the proper international clarity as these two nations moves forward in normalizing relations.

The potential of removing Shakur’s protected exile status in which the Cuban Government has provided her with for over four decades would be unthinkable. Moreover, anything other than this position could jeopardize and compromise her international protection from the long arm of the United States Government. This would be a political travesty for the former U.S. prisoner of war by potentially allowing the U.S. government to take international legal custody of Shakur and further allowing her to becoming a political casualty of the new U.S. and Cuba foreign policy. This would be an act of political betrayal and would not represent the long term commitment and relations the nation of Cuba and Castro have had with revolutionaries and political prisoners from around the world. Thus, forty years later, she still would not get a fair trial under the United States jurisprudence system. Lastly, African Americans and all people of goodwill should be lobbying the United States Government and petitioning President Barack Obama to issue Assata Shakur a presidential pardon and commute her sentence.

Moorish American Quest for independents and a Nationality: The Pending Question to Freedom

By Fahim A. Knight-El

Let me first go on public record and state that I am not a Grand Sheik nor am I an authority on Moorish Science jurisprudence and/or historical authority on the doctrines, philosophy, theology, law, etc., pertaining to the various Moorish ideological movements and temples (I hold no position as a Moorish Science representative; I am writing this article strictly as a layperson). But I started looking at the Moorish sovereignty and nationality argument a little closer when Dr. Malachi Z. York-El, the enigmatic leader of the United Nuwaubian Nation of Moors who was indicted and convicted within U.S. Federal Courts in 2004, and proclaimed his racial and ethnic linage (and/or nationality) of being Moor, indigenous American and having ancestral roots to the Aboriginals known as the Native Americans (York-El even had lawful international documentation (passport and dual citizenship) that he was a Liberian (West African) diplomat and a Liberian national in which the former Liberian Senator Francis Y.S. Garlawolu was there in the U.S. Court to validate Dr. York’s claim). There have been more qualified and authentic Muur defendants than York-El who had made similar legal arguments within the United States Courts over the years and many Muurs perhaps saw Dr. York’s plea as a mere opportunist who only used this legal strategy in an attempt to avoid prosecution. But Dr. York’s case led me to assess and evaluate, as well as, investigate the question of nationality relative to those known in the United States of America as so-called ‘African Americans’ who now number over 50 million descendents of Muurs ancestry. 

York challenged and put forth an unsuccessful legal argument that as a foreign diplomat he was immune to being held in U.S. custody and prosecuted under the U. S. jurisprudence system and should have been turned over to the Liberian Consulate and Embassy in Washington DC. as any other foreign diplomat who were arrested under U.S. Jurisdictional law (Dr. York was right in many ways); Dr. Malachi York-El during his hearing in U.S. Federal Court in 2004 stated: “"Your Honor, with all due respects to your government, your nation, and your court, we the indigenous people of this land have our own rights, accepted sovereign, our own governments. We are a sovereign people, Yamassee, Native American Creeks, Seminole, Washitaw Mound Builders. And all I'm asking is that the Court recognize that I am an indigenous person. Your court does not have jurisdiction over me. I should be transferred to the Moors Cherokee Council Court in which I will get a trial by juries of my peers. I cannot get a fair trial, Your Honor, if I'm being tried by the settlers or the confederates. I have to be tried by Native Americans as a Native American. That's my inalienable rights, and it's on record.”

York-El claimed to have been a Moorish diplomatic (of Muur nationality and citizenry, and not an American citizen) as I stated above during his unsuccessful Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) trial that involved many counts of sexual molestation allegations. He and his legal team were of the opinion that he should have been afforded and granted diplomatic immunity from these charges—freed and allowed to return to Africa or perhaps turned over to a Native American tribal council (York’s arrest was a violation of his Habeas corpus rights) but the U.S. courts rejected Dr. York's legal defense because I believe that his defense team led by Attorney Malik Zulu Shabazz did not understand the depth of York's nationality claim, it was even bigger than York himself it involved a 400 year redress of high crimes against humanity and they were not going let the cat out the bag because of the collective legal implications it would have on reshaping the Muurs (40-50 so-called American Negroes of the United States of America) quest for not only a nationality, which would have included reparations and a mandate to turn over historical sovereign lands belonging to those Muurs who arrived to the Americas long before Christopher Columbus. The Moors question the legitimacy of the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution and whether not the so-called Negroes were ever given the lawful opportunity to question and make the decision to be recognized as a so-called American; their U.S. citizenship status was given to them by their former slave masters. Let me also be clear this article is not about Dr. Malachi York-El, I am only using his case as a prologue to discuss Muurs nationality, sovereignty, reparation and independence. 

President Abraham Lincoln in the Lincoln-Douglas debate on September 18, 1858 stated:   "I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races, [applause]—that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race.”

However, I think Dr. York did not totally understand the gravity of the Uniform Commercial Code; the United States by law is a corporation and either in 1913 or 1933 is when the United Stated Government and/or the governmental corporation abandoned the gold standard currency system, thus, all printed U.S. currency, which use to be backed by gold and silver no longer existed, but the U.S. monetary system for over 80 years had been propped up by the Straw man deception  (the legal battles of thereunto would even alter how sovereignty and writs and petition would be received in United States Courts (relative to martial law versus civil law) and this also would impact the interpretative question of nationality from a constitutional perspective.  If one legal case of Moorish nationality is won in United Nations international court of law, it will forever change and alter our collective paradigm and position in the world and justify the so-called American Negro quest for reparations and insure a present and future identifiable nationality parlayed by the right to self-determination (affirmation and proclamation of freedom beyond the 13th Amendment) —the quest would be a testament tied to war crimes committed by the United States, Belgium, France, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Germany, United Kingdom, etc., who were active participants in the Transatlantic Slave Trade and the Middle Passage who knowingly and willingly committed acts of genocide that was inflicted on a people for over 310 years, which involved the buying and selling and enslavement over 100 million Africans, a gross and horrific violation of the African descendents human rights.

I do not mean going to civil court and petitioning as an individual to wear a Moorish identity; in particular “Bey” or “El” or any surname that separates and denotes historical, genetic and cultural links beyond our Negro status in America, this would only be considered a miscued victory (these are only small personal legal victories which will impact adherents of the Moorish Science doctrine but will not determine U.S. and international policy relative to our people of the Diasporas). The legal battle for a nationality will be the most challenging because the slave masters and the captives created long term systemic practices to disconnect blacks from their Moorish history and tradition—denied the right to speak their native tongues, forced to accept European names, divided and scattered from their original descendent lands, given the slave master’s religion of Christianity and made us into Negroes. Now, the so-called American Negro for 400 years still remain unsettled, divested and stripped of their birth rights (this dehumanization plan had many intents free labor, and genocide was the ultimate objective).

This international legal battle  will set a lawful precedent (to ensue a historical declaration as original claimants of indigenous Moorish ancestry which to force the United States Government (and Allies) dating back to the 1440s and returning all seize assets, property rights, land (held by the Bank of England and the U.S. Federal Reserve) and would even grant Muurs, African Americans, Negroes, Blacks, Ethiopians, Colored, Asiatics, etc., entitlement to the gold and silver housed in vaults in Fort Knox, Kentucky, which was accumulated from 310 years of slave labor and stolen resources from the inhabitants of the Muurs biological kin the so-called Native Americans. However, I am not optimistic that this would ever occur, because it would take a comparable fighting machine equal and/or superior to the U.S. military and without a military to enforce a U.S. Supreme Court or a United Nations decision to ensure compliance to repatriate the original indigenous Moors (this argument would be met on deaf ears). The quest for freedom, justice and equality as a people who have been denied a divine and lawful right to a nationality still remains lingering.

Nevertheless, the Moorish argument will continue to be an uphill political, economic and social battle within the legal schools thought but it is gaining traction. We all have become collateral and our birth certificates were used as asset leverages in which private bankers working in conjunction with the United States Government has redeemed over $650.000 dollars per citizen (some scholars have argued that this amount has ballooned to over 7 million dollars) this redeemable money is tied to your sovereignty; thus U.S. Currency now function as Fiat currency (the money has no real value) in which the ‘money’ or monetary exchange has been reduced to a Federal Reserve note that cannot be redeemed for gold or silver. The ‘Banksters’ turned its citizens into instrument of commodity and created a Strawman economy. Brother Knight-El, what does this have to do with sovereignty and nationality? Prophet Noble Drew Ali understood before his death in 1929 that the so-called American Negroes and Asiatics by law (Blacks Law dictionary defines the difference between what is law and what is legal) that our sovereignty would be tied to nationality and he strategically and legally created a religious domicile under the heading of the Moorish Science Temple of America Incorporated; this is some heavy information and some of it is even over my head as a layperson historian. The strawman was/is a fictional person(s) who has no true identity (yet U.S. citizens birth certificates are traded like stocks and bonds and those Invisible Rulers on Wall Street have systematically withheld your right and our right as a people to declare our nationality as Muurs descendants).

We have sought and declared our rights to a nationality in order sit amongst other nations of the earth as members of the United Nations (we have never sat in the U.N. as an independent and sovereign nation of indigenous people). The entire straw man concept and how we as U.S. citizens are traded as stocks and commodity is essentially based on us never declaring the legal and monetary value of our birth certificates and how the United States serve as a Corporation (pursuant to serving as the legal beneficiary) and many of us have involuntarily signed on and the 14th amendment of the United States Constitution is the lock and key. So unless we decipher the United States Constitution and prove that the Federal Reserve System functions outside of U.S. Law and as a private central bank holds the key to making us financially whole because what they established on Jekyll Island off the coast of Georgia in 1913 was one of the greatest silent Coup d'├ętat and crimes ever committed against the citizens of the United States of America.  The Moors of the Americas claim to have signed legislation that gives them the rights to be recognized as a separate nationality from ex-slaves so-called American Negroes (the so-called American Negro sold his birthrights under the 13th Amendment, 14TH Amendment, and 15TH Amendment to the U.S. Constitution). 

We must revisited the legal treaties and legal agreements that were signed between the top level United States Government officials and Moors; Ali wrote about these national and international pacts between the indigenous people who were kidnapped and brought to the shores of the Americas and the eventual diplomacy between the white man and the Blackmoors. Although, our revolutionary scholars have always argued that the original people were in the Americas long before the European expedition voyages. However, even in 2016, we as a scattered, homeless and vagabond people still do not have a collective and agreed nationality in which is recognized by the United Nations (perhaps this is the biggest piece to the Moorish argument and in my opinion will be an uphill battle).

I actually mentioned this point in a previous article that I had written on April 6, 2014 on the Muurs titled, “Moorish American Sovereignty: Myth or Reality.”  Some years ago Minister Silis Muhammad (leader of the Lost-Found Nation of Islam in the West headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia) had petition the United Nations Human Rights Commission on behalf of 40-50 million Diasporian Africans who he deemed were victims of Chattel Slavery relative to receiving some of the worst human brutality and dehumanization treatment comparable to none on the earth when you look at the effects this had on the original people for 310 years.

Minister Muhammad charged the European nations and the United States with participating in genocide, ethno-genocide and crimes against humanity. He and his team of lawyers filed their legal grievances with the U.N. Human Rights Commission only to be denied because the so-called Negroes of America had no agreed nationality or identity that was accepted by the United Nations and therefore there petition was denied. Minister Muhammad re-filed his petition declaring black Americans under a new nationality called "Afro Descendants" in order to move this legal maneuver forward.

Prophet Noble Drew Ali issued the Moorish Science Temple of America, Inc. 'Nationality Cards', which stated, "This is your nationality and identification card for the Moorish Science Temple of America, and birthrights for the Moorish Americans, etc. We honor all of the Divine Prophets: Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha, and Confucius. May the blessings of the God of our father Allah, be upon you that carry this card. I do hereby declare that you are a Moslem under the Divine Laws of the Holy Koran of Mecca. Love, Truth, Peace, Freedom and Justice."

I was turned on to  Brother Prince Uriel Bey's works (a Moorish Science scholar and philosopher and peace be unto him and may Allah look favorably upon him) by a brother named Fennell Bey and since May 6, 2016, we had established a line of communication. He started sending me Youtube clips and provocative articles, which was definitely outside the box type information. I owe a debt of gratitude to brother Fennell Bey for finding me worthy to share wisdom that was rooted in the deep esoteric and Mysticism of the Moorish Science doctrine and philosophical teachings. I also owe him an apology because I got so busy that I could not answer all his emails, but I am grateful for this brother and his patience he instructed me to read all Prince Uriel Bey’s (up until that point I had never heard of Brother Prince Uriel Bey or his works) work titled, The Consecrated Talisman 'Salmagundi' - The Pi Exponent, Oeconomicus, Artificium Et Commercium and Atmaurium Matria Mea (My Country Atmaurium) I consider myself to be a novice and to weigh in on Brother Bey’s scholarship, it might be prematurely for me to give a complete analysis.

Even as I write this article I probably would have to better familiarize myself with his extensive views on ancient history, theological events and geography, racial and ethnic indexing, anthropology, archeology, and his deeper understanding of Moorish and United States jurisprudence—comparative and legal historical contracts that have been written signed and overstanding his views on Sovereignty. Moreover, since he was hedging on practical and esoteric views about the interconnectedness of the Moabites and linking geopolitical ties between  lands, languages, racial, etc., indexing between those inhabitants of Iberian Peninsula, which I am assuming their ethno/racial lines between the original inhabitants of Iberia and those original people who occupied the Americas (were in his contentions are of kinship people), perhaps over 16,000 years before the Caucasians arrived these ancient black people were in North America and South America.

From the Book “The Consecrated Talisman ‘Salmagundi’ The Pi Exponent, page 208 stated: “Caput Una…Ancient Moorish – American Land Documents One of the earliest Moorish (Canaanite – Poenicium) documents pertaining to the right, possession and inhabitation of land by blood in the Americas; describing the Annexation of the American Continent to the Iberian Peninsula, both, being of the Present Moorish and Ancient Carthaginian Empire, is the Bourne Stone, in Komassakumkanit Cape Code Bay New England Massachusetts, which exhibits and identifies the Moorish Seal of Hanno-Bey Circa 500 B.C., written or inscribed in North Semitic Iberian-Punic Script, which is a later form of the Moabite Characters, as the Moorish (Moabite and Canaanite) are known to have carried their Semitic Tongue to Spain.  Evidence of these Ancient Moorish Documents can be found in the Archives of the Bourne Historical Society, 2) the ‘Book of Ballymote’ – an archaic and rare manuscript housed in the libraries of the Bishops of the Roman Catholic Church; containing priceless information on the Ancient Ogam writings”.

 He also extended the Moorish and Moabite ethnic and historical presences to be geographically very expansive (now, some of this information does have scholarly and historical precedent and I am pointing this fact out more as references than me attempting to diminish this brother's credibility as a scholars and what he has offered in his works). I think his overall scholarship rest on many conscious and revolutionary scholars that had gone before him (and he drew upon many of them and yet his information did not just parrot the black scholars who addressed these similar histories, which makes his work intellectually phenomenon and possess a sense of originality). For example, Drusillia Dunjee Houston book titled, "Wonderful Ethiopians of the Ancient Cushite Empire", and I see Brother Uriel Bey expanding on Chancellor Williams' book titled, "Destruction of Black Civilization: Great Issues of Race from 4500 B.C." and also the works of J.A. Rogers three volume set titled, "Sex and Race" ; I see Cheikh Anta Diop works titled, "African Origin of Civilization: Myth or Reality" and "Civilization and Barbarism", Sterling Means work titled, "Ethiopia and the Missing Link in African History" and Ivansetima works "Africa's Presences in Early Asia" and "They Came before Columbus". Also, I can see the works of Rudolph Windsor titled, "From Babylon to Timbuktu: A History of the Ancient Black Races Including the Black Hebrews" and "The Valley of the Dry Bones: The Conditions That Face Black People in America Today"; Michael Bradley's "The Iceman Inheritance," as well as the works of Gerald Massey book titled, "Ancient Egypt the Light of the World" and John G. Jackson's work "Introduction to African Civilization".

I think his evidence represent a very good synthesizing of theological and political conclusions of modern and ancient sources, which has led him to various hypotheses that concluded with Moorish descendants of the ancient Moabites and/or Canaanites having lawful claims that he ties and preference directly to the teachings of Prophet Noble Drew Ali's "Circle 7 Holy Koran", which gives lawful and legal credence's to our overall question of nationality and sovereignty claims that the Prophet himself wrote about. Both Bey (the student) and the Ali the Master Teacher and Prophet both overstood that our ethnic and racial claims were directly tied to a people described in the Bible as the Moabites who linage can be traced to the so-called American Negro in America (the greatest story never told).

From page 26 we find written in “The Consecrated Talisman ‘Salmagundi’The Pi Exponent  …… “regarding the Possession and Annexation of the Americas to the Iberian Peninsula, Carthage (Tunis), Morocco, Numidia, Utica, etc., being those same possessions of North-east, and South-west Africa, including North, Central and South America, Mexico and the Atlantis Islands; serving as lawful evidence so written in the pages of the Circle 7 Holy Koran, for Moorish – Americans, etc., and further evidenced by Proclamation and Sovereign Trust for Moorish – Americans, etc., so written in the pages of the 7 part, Consecrated ‘Talisman’ of ‘The Moorish – American Society of Comprehensive Science’. Recorded as a Legal Deed and Trust Document in the Library of Congress – under Certified Registration No. TXU-1-123-633, and Control (Catalogue) Number 71-330-6977 (U), The Department of Homeland Security – U.S. Customs and Border Protection - Recordation No. COP 04-00062; Control No. 476030 LMW, and Catalogued in The U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Administration – (Department of State Library – Call # BP232.U73 2004) : and is duly recognized by the said Federal corporate United States government.

There is no doubt that Brother Prince Uriel Bey is standing on the foundation of the Prophet's teachings, but like any good Adept or Neophyte he allowed his knowledge and wisdom to evolve and build sound intellectual arguments that documents via historical and theological evidence to prove the Moabite/Muur rights and humanity—he dared to point us to study his views and contentions in order to go after assets and lands (nationally and internationally) and governmental signed treaties involving territories that belongs to the original people of the earth. Now, perhaps many Muurs/Moors do not have the ability to breakdown all this comprehensive ethno/theological and legal jurisprudence language that sways between a pure theological arguments into ancient kingdoms that crosses various continents and concludes with political law that is rooted in more esoteric schools of thought.

This might be viewed by some as being more of an unorthodoxy approach to Ali's primary argument of land and nationality (and desire to have no part  in Prince Uriel Bey's Moorish Science derivation and play it safe). Thus, yet, I think it would be difficult for the average layperson Muur to understand Brother Prince Uriel Bey views, although, his philosophical and theoretical analysis makes the Muurs case on much higher and deeper levels. But may this is the cause that has hindered him from gaining attention and much traction in MSTA circles, is because of the level of the study this would involve; and as much as this information is empirical it is literary challenging and to a lesser extent is outside of the traditional Moorish dogma. The question is do many of the Sheiks and Moorish leaders have a willingness to think outside the box (I do know that in every organization there is always a 5%, 10% and 85%). I am not a Moorish scholars or an authority on Moorish Doctrine. I think this brother's work is worth further investigation in particular in the realm of Moorish Science theological jurisprudence. His works are truly HIGH SCIENCE.

By Fahim A. Knight-El

What is Free Thinking? There are probably many definitions to this question that are palpable; but Free Thinking is all about one having the ability and willingness to rises above false labels and
divisions, in particular being able to objectively dissect and navigate through the propaganda and disinformation, as well as, the distortions of philosophy, history, religion, etc., which have been taught and misconstrued by the Western World, but simultaneously when you have the knowledge of self, it provides you with the necessary tools to explore philosophical thoughts with more clarity in order to determine what is truth and what is false—only having the proper knowledge will allow us to make the proper assessments and evaluations when examining world civilizations and world events (in particular determining where we fit in as a race of people).

This moves us beyond the ‘Negro’ and so-called ‘African-American’ social and ethno racial paradigm and status—this ethno-racial product was created and manufactured in America. But I want to make it perfectly clear that a lot has gone wrong in the way this world’s order functions and operates in which has caused a deviation from the path of God or the Supreme Being and is functioning contradictory to the universal laws. I have been writing, teaching and involved in grassroots activism, which to educate, and organize so-called black people in America and all people of African descent around exploring tactics and strategies to move us forward politically, economically and socially.

I use to carry this little book in my back pocket written by James Allen titled, “As a Man Thinketh” and other Europeans scholars such Eckhart Toller and many other enlightened European scholars have attempted to delve into this spiritual knowledge that was originally explored by the likes of Khalil Gabron in his book titled the “Prophet.” Thus, all of my writings and articles have been systematically well thought out with having the intent of challenging the norm by seeking to explore human and universal outcomes that are more God-centered and in attempting to look deeper into human behavior in order to search out and answer the causes and effects, which has contributed to our decline; even if it meant talking about the naked truth and exposing white supremacy in which many of the topics that I have covered over the years makes Negroes and Caucasians uncomfortable—racism is a disease (which only truth has the capability of uprooting) and I refuse to allow us to live in denial because Chattel Slavery for 310 years left people of African descent permanently scarred that continues to impact them sociologically and psychologically even in 2016.

If our leaders and social scientist continue to overlook and negate this variable, we will remain second-class citizens and our quest for complete freedom will never be realized and will only contribute to future black generations remaining on the modern plantation. I also sought to explain over time the scientific and philosophical principles that were needed to shift the debate outside of the realm of emotionalism towards viewing ideologies, thoughts and human behavior from the vanish point of one who is of African descent (who thinks outside of 'Negrology") and who understands our collective conscious and our collective fight for liberation. I have always attempted to offer arguments that challenged the popular version of the truth by using African-centered rational and logical models debunking negative antiquated principles that have been implored (that has produced long-term systemic affects) and has contributed to our social entrapment. I stand by my research and commitment to offering more empirical explanations always challenging white supremacy concept models that  has viewed, “Africa as the dark continent and it gave nothing to world civilization”.

This perspective is the foundation that gave rise to the European history of enslavement of the darker people of the planet—plundering, raping, destruction, land thief, murder, stealing of resources, etc., of indigenous people since his 6, 000 years existence on the planet. He had a history that was rooted in delusionary reality. He painted the image of God as being white and told us that Jesus (Yeshua Ben Yosef was white who had blond hair and blue eyes), he took his God complex throughout the planet falsely viewing himself as being superior to other races and cultures (this is nothing but delusionary behavior when you create a system of white supremacy and carry it out politically,
socially and economically). They used the missionaries to steal the minds of the indigenous people every place they went on the planet. For example, they decimated the original people of Papua New Guinea, Australia, New Zealand, Africa and completely wiped out the indigenous people of North and South America. Perhaps you do not understand that Eurocentrism is the zenith of a culture and
a history of a narcissistic people's culture and history being forced on other civilized people. This is pure history and facts. The entire world is turning against Western Europe and Eastern Europe, it is ISIS and the Islamic world today, but the universe has turned against them because of their reactionary behavior on the planet. Now, they are safe nowhere on the planet because of their position of greed and imperialism. The Sheeple is hastened its own slaughter because of a refusal to detach themselves from the plan of the Hidden Hand and Invisible Rulers. The planet wants peace and justice. But as a warmonger, their history will continue to be written in blood and war.

We now live in a society that has entered into a new political, economic and social paradigm, which has evolved along side globalism and an age of information. This transition somewhat had its beginnings with the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1989, which brought an end to the Cold War and ultimately led to the changing of world orders. The United States entered into a series of wars and conflicts in the early 1990s, in particular in Desert Storm and Desert Shield and in 2001 and 2003 beginning with the Iraq War and two years later the invasion of Afghanistan. Most Americans believed that Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin-Laden posed an eminent danger and threat to the United States national security. This culminated with the attack and bombing of the World Trade Centeron September 11, 2001.

Thus, after living and reading about the 9/11 hoax that killed of over 3,000 American citizens and our ongoing conflicts with so-called radical Islam and Muslim extremists these events led me to think deeper about being a so-called American and although the question of my patriotism had been shattered long before these events manifested themselves. This writer, believes that patriotism is rooted in one's loyalty to something greater than themselves. It first must be tied to a theory and belief that there is nothing greater to uphold. This disposition must be undergirded and supported by one also embracing nationalism and are willing to uphold the values, standards, principles, laws, codes of conduct and all that governs this nations jurisprudence system and it rights to sovereignty.

For example, I watched the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil in which my interest was to see and applaud the African American/African athletes and to celebrate their accomplishments. They all seem so proud to stand on the podium as so-called Americans in receiving their Gold, Silver and
Bronze metals and seeing the American flag being risen and the United States National Anthem being sung must have sent goose bumps down their spines. But even I had to immediately gather myself in recognizing what these young black athletes had accomplished for America was plausible (yet I could not allow these global sport and play games to overshadow the turbulent racial history
that so-called African Americans have suffered under the American flag for over 450 years). I could only think about the way black people were treated by United States Government and the U.S. police departments at home, it is this contradiction that immediately soured my taste which to accept their celebration would be an act of hypocrisy on my behalf. I could not share in their American
patriotism because to do so would have been less than genuine. I looked at Brazil, which was colonized by the Portuguese and next to the United States, it was Brazil where the most African slaves were transported against their will during the Transatlantic Slave Trade and the Middle Passage.

The media mostly showed you the light skinned mulatto Brazilian, but there are over 50 million black Brazilians who are descendants of ex-slaves that the media in Rio do not show you. So I will always salute our right to be treated as human beings and not just be celebrated during athletic events to add to America's medal count. I salute our right to attain complete freedom and be treated under the banner of freedom, justice, and equality. Moreover, anyone of these African American, Afro-Caribbean and or African athletes, etc., could be killed in America by white racist police law enforcement. So as we raise the American flag, I think about Sandra Bland, Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Freddie Gray, etc., and the recent deaths of other Black men at the hands of racist American police officers. I think about the over 100 million African slaves who were kidnapped, raped, dehumanized and enslaved (they were Americans and my tears are for them, my and your ancestors). Yes, Black Lives Matter beyond these damn Olympic Games; do not ask me to stand when the flag is being raised and put my hand over my heart when you are still killing us in the streets. One of my idols Muhammad Ali threw his gold medal (Ali won a gold medal at the 1960 Rome Games as a light-heavy weight boxer) in the river. Ali was a free black man and debunk the shackles of a modern day slave. Treat black people as true Americans and not just during the Olympic Games. BlACK LIVES MATTER BEYOND ADDING GOLD METALS TO AMERICA'S COUNT.

My position isn’t about treason and betrayal or being anti-government. However, this writer thinks that for real patriotism to exist in 2016 there must be a level of tolerance that is taught on the primary school level in which young impressionable minds are exposed to the diversity of cultures, races, nationalities, religions, etc. Also alleviate the negative stereotypes and propaganda about people who may differ from us and allow people to have a dissenting voice and create more avenues where ideas, thoughts, opinions, beliefs and differs of philosophy can be freely and openly debated not just in the ivory towers, think tanks, corporate media, but on the grassroots level. People need to know and understand why we should they back the U.S. Government foreign policy agenda and is it worth risking our lives in the name of flag waving by suiting up militarily and going to foreign battle fields to fight for causes that benefits the super and ultra rich,--that only haunts some soldiers and military men/women upon returning with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other mental health illnesses; their patriotism is often shattered and brought into question when they are confronted with racism and disillusionment upon returning home (they fought not to spread democracy but to make the world safer for the Elite dynastic families to continue to exploit other nations natural resources and wealth). Some grow to understand that they were used only as a United States Government foreign policy tool.

The teaching of civics and social studies has to be improved to reflect that indeed we have entered into a new world order that is more dangerous and volatile. The war on terror and terrorism have to be an intellectually engaging conversation whereas students can embrace and trust that their government and nation deserves their un-daunting loyalty to uphold, defend and protect the United States Constitution against foreign and domestic enemies. This can only take place if we begin educating young people on matters of Homeland Security and re-inspiring them to study the brilliance of the founding Fathers and the framers of the U.S. Constitution this possibly will invigorate a new generation of patriots that will have no interest in becoming an enemy combatants and/or joining onto America's enemies. They will be more interested in upholding the freedoms and there will be no more need to administer oaths and swear-ins but their loyalty and patriotism will forever be rooted deep in their hearts. I am not optimistic that this will ever occur.

We have to observe all these recent global events very carefully and be able to look beyond the Talking Heads and the propaganda and disinformation that are being spewed by the mass mediums. This phenomenon will only continue to hasten us quicker towards the New World Order and the One World Government agenda. Thus, this is why it is most imperative now that we have to be more diligent in our studies of the knowledge of self in order to be able to properly decipher world affairs. Europe and the Europeans are in trouble and the collapse of the white man’s world is inevitable (his 6,000 years rule is us over). But we have to understand that to continue to embrace his Eurocentric value system will also mean our demise as well. He has even more devious plans to attempt to expand his global dominance over the indigenous people of the planet by using large scale deceptive ploys to exploit the resources of Africa and the globe. If you get a chance go to the Internet and search Dr. Frances Cress Welsing book titled, "The Isis Papers" and read her perspective on white Supremacy. She was one of my teachers who recently passed and in her death, we lost a giant.

They seek to discredit viewpoints with no empirical evidence and desire for us to overlook the global political, economic and social conditions of humanity. Moreover, irresponsible uses of the word conspiracy theory in order to create doubt in others minds, but just take a look at humanity's condition and the metaphor analogy of the red pill and the blue pill will lead us to see and understand that 85% of humanity has been duped by a small minority of the Invisible Rulers and the Hidden hand (the 10%). The Bilderberg, Council on Foreign Relations, House of Rothschilds, Club of Rome, Trilateral Commission, etc., exist and are reaping havoc on the entire planet. But there has been a paradigm shift and ignorance can no longer justify or protect us from what lie ahead Yet, there are some of us who have chosen to seek various Paths of enlightenment and who are not fearful of opening our minds and hearts to critically evaluating all social conditions, thus even if it means thinking outside the box.

They want us to believe that there is something taboo and fundamentally wrong with entertaining alternative viewpoints. The awakening is occurring and it does not matter how you or I seek to interpret and/or choose to dismiss this occurrence. Now, you cannot have it both ways; there are many thoughts and individuals who have chosen to speak truth to power in which so-called 'mainstream' media and propaganda machines and their intellectual puppet talking heads would condemn and dismiss as mere fantasies or unintelligible conspiracies that have no place in the classrooms of academic research because it lacks credibility. But that is no reason for us not to consider those who dare to offer alternative viewpoints and reject them because of how mainstream media views them.

I have always viewed the world from the macrocosm and microcosm unity and inter-connectedness perspective —demonstrating no separation. I do not proclaim to belong to any of the faith traditions—I have traveled many enlightened paths and many of the faith traditions have helped to lead me to my awakening stage. I only consider myself as a student who recognize and accepts the imperfection in man. I have drawn from many good and solid philosophical principles, which can be found in Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, Judaism, etc. Most of ancient Masters, Sages, and Gurus taught true spiritual principles and shun ego driven dogmas; however, often those that came after them altered and corrupted the true principles and selfish guidance that they offered to uplift humanity. If I could put a label on my acquired wisdom, it would be enlightenment in which I have a moral obligation to awaken others around me to the truth and if nothing else arouses one's curiosity to think outside the box.

Now, since I am a Blogger, I have always found it to be imperative to share these ideals with the broader African community. Some of what I write might irritate traditional believers and worshippers and/or those that are members of organized religion, but it will have traction with Free Thinkers and outside the box enlightened minds. I would like to think that my life body of work challenges our humanity and attempt to point out the social, psychological and spiritual contradictions and suggest how we could become better human beings. These type lessons require for one to look deeper into their souls and spirits and have a deeper desire to come in harmony with all the divine universal principles and laws.

Fahim Knight-El speech on Freemasonry and the Ancient Kemetic Connection (Stanford L. Warren Library 4-7-16): Written transcription and copy.

Greetings: Hotep to our brothers and sisters of the Pan-Africanist and Nationalist community—Peace and let Africa Unite. Africa for the Africans at home and abroad—One God, One Aim, One Destiny says Marcus Mosiah Garvey. Let me first thank the staff and Stanford L. Warren Library for extending this invitation to me. I am humbled and grateful.

To my Sunni Muslim brothers and sisters:Auodhu Billahi Minash ash-Shaytaan Nir Rajim Bismillah-hir-Rahman-nir-Rahim” (English translation: I seek refuge from Allah from curse or accuse Devil Satan and in the name of Allah the Beneficent, the merciful). I say As-Salaam Alaikaim to my brothers and sisters assembled here today who are of the Sunni Islamic persuasion. Some years ago a wrote a small book titled, “Freemasonry (Moslem Sons) and Islam: What Do they Share?”

To my Rastafarian brother and sisters, “I greet you in the salutations: In the name of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie I, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judea—Jah---Rastafari. All Masonic teachings have its roots linked to the Biblical Prophets King David and King Solomon”. So I am connected to the Tribe of Judea and I also know that we are that lost tribe who was cut off from our biblical heritage. I consider myself one of the Maroons and Africans who escaped slavery from the European British slave masters and took refuge in the mountains and used guerrilla tactics to fight the British on the Island of Jamaica. They loc their hair and smoked Black Gungi (this is some real good stuff), but they were fierce warriors who overstood the power and relationship that Jah made between man and land (the vegetations of the earth had edible and medicinal purposes). Thus, many of the original Rastafarians did not consume meat and animal flesh—they followed the divine laws offered up in the Bible giving to us in the first five books of the Bible. So Jah-----Rastafari long live the spirit of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie.       

To my brothers and Sisters of the Nation of Gods and Earths, better known as the Five Percent Nation and master Scientists of the 120 degree lessons- Father Allah (Clarence 13X)  and his sidekick Brother Justice taught us to always greet one another in Peace—So I greet the Gods in the audience in peace. Now, if you want some higher science from some true free thinkers they have lessons called the 120 degrees that is titled “Supreme Mathematics” and “Supreme Alphabet” and there are other lessons of high science. I will always consider myself an honorary member of the Nation of Gods and Earths and have set under some great enlighteners who taught me how to use and let knowledge be born—and I will always consider myself as part of the NGE Cipher. They gave me a deeper appreciation of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s Supreme Wisdom Lessons, which led me to evolve to the complete overstanding that God was black and put me on a quest to move to a higher spiritual sphere of attaining 360 degrees of knowledge (that is where I am right now as I give this talk and speech).

To my beloved Moorish Science Brothers those who have accepted the universal divine teachings of the Prophet Noble Drew (aka Abdul Sharrieff Ali) who founded the Moorish Science Temple of America in 1913 in Newark, New Jersey, it was originally called Canaanite Temple and Ali said the so-called American Negro did not have a true nationality (Ali was believed to have been born in Cherokee, North Carolina in 1886). He declared us to be Moorish American—so I greet the Moors present with Islam or Islamism. We have our Sheikh, Brother Robert Stone-El present with us today who teaches the “Circle 7 Holy Koran”, as it was prepared by the Prophet Noble Drew Ali. Greetings Islam Moor. We are the biblical ancient Moabites.

The Prophet Drew Ali taught that we were disenfranchised and lost as a so-called race of people, because the so-called American Negro had no true recognized nationality (his life body of work evolved around linking the so-called American Negro to his true lost identity) and Ali had traveled to North Africa (perhaps to Egypt and Morocco) was taught in the lesser mysteries in Egypt and he was giving the assignment to go back to North America and declare that we were of Moorish descendent who had being cut off from our nation, history, land, language, culture, birth rights, etc. The Moors brought civilization to Europe and to the Iberian Peninsula—Spain—Seville, Cordoba, Barcelona and over to Lisbon, Portugal even to this day, the ethnic and racial presences of the Moors still dominate the DNA genetic pool of the present day Spanish and Portuguese people. Moorish architecture decorum is very visible in the building styles of the older edifices in these two European nations. But Ali overstood that with his proper nationality the so-called black man in America would be able to exercise his sovereignty as any free and independent people of the earth.

He taught that the Asiatic Black man was Moorish American and declared this by giving us our rightful birthrights, it entitled us just like the Native Americans to land and property rights that are still on the books today. Look at how the workings tools giving to us in the “Circle Seven Holy Koran” by Prophet Noble Drew Ali and pay close attention to how interrelated some of the Moorish Science Doctrine resembles the working tools giving to us in our Speculative Masonic training. This information was taking from the “Circle 7 Holy Koran”, chapter five by Ali and you can draw your own conclusion (some historians and social scientist would argue that Prophet Noble Drew Ali was a Freemason but the Moorish Science Temple would openly dispute Ali’s so-called Masonic connections):

13).These tools remind me of the ones we handle in the workshop of the mind where things were made of thought and where we build up character.

14). We use the square to measure all our lines, to straighten out the crooked places of the way, and make the corners of our conduct square.

15). We use the compass to draw circles around our passions and desires to keep them in the bounds of righteousness.

16). We use the axe to cut away the knotty, useless and ungainly parts and make the character symmetrical.

17). We use the hammer to drive home the truth, and pound it in until it is a part of every part.

18). We use the plane to smooth the rough, uneven surfaces of joint, and block, and board that go to build the temple for the truth.

19). The chisel, line, the plummet and the saw all have their uses in the workshop of the mind.

20). And then this ladder with its trinity of steps, faith, hope and love; on it we climb up to the dome of purity in life.

Now, many Masons will say wait a minute, these tools as described by Prophet Drew Ali and the Moorish Science Temple are interpreted and spelled out very similar to many of the emblematic working tools depicted in Speculative Masonry.

To my beloved Christian brothers and sisters who have accepted Jesus the Christ as your personal Savior. But lets be clear, I love Jesus (you call him Jesus over here in the West); Jesus did not speak English so his original name was not Jesus; he either spoke the much older languages of Hebrew or Amharic and his name translated as Yeshuaa Ben Yosef or Isa Bin Yusuf (Jesus the son of Joseph). Jesus was Black and African, he was a dark skinned Nubian brother (more kinship to the present day Afro-Palestinians those found in city of Jericho), even the Bible describes him as having kinky hair and dark skin.

But we have allowed this white man to use the false images of Christ painted by either Leonardo Divinci or Michael Angelo to convince you that Jesus was Caucasian and white, one of the biggest lies told to deceive humanity was to misrepresent Jesus true ethnic and racial identity (and even at the Council of Nicea in 325 A.D. Constantine and his council would establish the Nicean Creed and distort the true teaching of Jesus the Christ and Christianity). But I am here to tell you that Jesus was African and black. He was a Nubian Hebrew Israelite—who has linage kinship to the oppressed Palestinians of the present day West Bank and Gaza Strip. Jesus would be against Zionism and he would be standing with the Palestinians in their quest for freedom, Justice and Equality.

To my brothers who are members of the Nation of Islam (the Black Muslims), I extend my salutations of in the name of Allah who came in the person of Master Fard Muhammad; who came to North America in 1930 seeking to find his messenger the Honorable Elijah Muhammad (he was the first begotten of the dead) one who slept amongst the dead and raised him up and giving him the assignment to going after the 144,000 so-called American Negro that also slept. He taught Muhammad the nature of God and the Devil and for 44 years Muhammad was a perfect example of what it meant to pool your resources and do-for-self (he said my teachings can be summed up in six words ‘accept your own and be yourself’).

Master Fard Muhammad mysteriously disappeared in 1934, but Elijah would raise up the likes of Malcolm X, Louis Farrakhan and Muhammad Ali, it would be the life giving teachings that allowed these men who would change the world. Muhammad taught that we needed some land and this good earth that we can call our own (he also taught separation). I greet you in the Arabic language of paradise of As- Salaam Alaikum (it only means peace this was the language that all the prophets spoke). Lastly, Elijah Muhammad was a Mason and overstood the lessons of the Poor Widow’s Son on a much deeper level.

Jesus (Yeshuaa Ben Yosef) challenged the Roman Government and Pilate—he also challenged the Pharisees, Sadducees and Sanhedrins (how about you?) Jesus or Yeshuaa was at war with the oppressor and Elite of his day according to the Holy the Bible (fighting principalities in high places indeed Jesus had a government on his shoulders). However, the false Portrayal of the Divine and the false image of that white Jesus have subconsciously and sublimely impacted the psyche of Black people for over 300 years, we have equated God with being white and has determined the white race to be superior and viewed ourselves as being inferior. This thinking has had a devastating affect on the political, economic and social development of black people in America and throughout the world. Greetings in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit (if Jesus was here today  he too would greet you in peace). My mother in her living room had a picture of a blonde haired white Jesus and right next to him, she had a picture of President John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., hugging. Thus, as a child I drew and painted my mother a picture of a black Jesus and I took down that false image of Jesus the Christ (laughter). Some of you in here today are still praying to a Caucasian Jesus.

To my Hebrew brothers and sisters Shalom Alaikum; we are the original Jews; The Falasha Jews and Beta Israeli Jews that originated in Africa Ethiopia (a black land that was never colonized and they fought the Italians and won—the Greeks called them the land of the burnt faces). We were followers of Judaism in Kush long before the Askhnazi Jew and Kazar Jews converted to Judaism and exited the hills and cavesides of Europe 6,000 years ago and before Abraham and Moses knew anything about monotheism (these Falasha Jews had a version of the Torah and divine law long before the Biblical prophets); they Europeans Jews are mere imposters and were not the original inhabitants of Israel.

The true Jews were Nubian Hebrew Israelite who gave Musa or Moses ten of ancient laws and commandments from the Kemetic scribes (or the 42 Negative Confessions) the book Cometh Forth by Day or the Egyptian Book of the Dead is our reference. Dr. Mualana Karenga translated the ancient Kemetic Husia. Dr. Yosef Ben A.A. Jochannan in his book Black man of the Nile and His Family, he writes about the original Jews. The  book Cometh Forth by Day popular called the "Egyptian Book of the Dead" (one version translated by Wallis Budge) in which from my comparative theological study of the Bible, it is clear evidence that many scriptures were lifted and taking out of "Egyptian Book of the Dead" by European scholars.

We also know that there is a book titled, The Lost Books of the Bible, which speaks to more ancient books that were taken out of the Bible by King James (between 1604-1611). Also there is an original book titled, The Book of Enoch that was lifted from the Bible. According to Brad Lemley  Director, Natural Health Solutions in an article titled, “Jesus Lost Words” stated: “There have been hidden scrolls revealed An Egyptian religious leader called Athanasius even outlawed this ancient text way back in the year 367. . . Biblical scholars call it one of “the most extraordinary archeological discoveries in the modern world…” but only recently have we begun to understand just how important it is. In December 1945, while digging for fertile soil for his crops, a local farmer stumbled onto this ancient scroll. He found it in a long-forgotten cave near Nag Hammadi, Egypt. In order to protect the text, early Christians buried these secret words of Jesus in the desert… where they remained for nearly 2,000 years. Knowledge of its existence was mostly lost, aside from a few references in ancient Christian texts”. You already know that Dr. Yosef Ben A.A. Jochannan wrote about how the 10 commandments were lifted from the 42 Negative Confessions. And as I stated above Dr. Maulana Karenga translated an ancient Kemetic Text titled, Selections from the Husia: Sacred Wisdom from Ancient Egypt which predated the Bible by thousands of years. I know that most of the Bible has it roots in older African sources.

Since this topic is on Freemasonry: this is the 4th month of the year, 4 represent foundation and the number 7 is a deep spiritual number in all enlightened philosophical schools of thought, the number 7 is revered as one of the most spiritual and sacred numbers in the science of numerology. The number 7 is a God Number and today’s date is April 7, 2016 do you see the 1+ 6= seven and the seventh (7th) Alphabet is the letter G, which is deeply rooted in Masonic knowledge (it is correlated to the science of Geometry and God viewed by some as having the attribute of the Grand Architect of the Universe) and the physical address of Stanford L. Warren Library on Fayetteville Street in Durham, NC is 1201 1 +2=3+1=4, which represent foundation. All this have a spiritual and Masonic connection and works in the scheme of Sacred Geometry.

How do we define Freemasonry? Most Masonic scholars define it as “a system of morality veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols”  . The European robber barons looked at the Medu Neter (the Greeks misconstrued the higher Kemetic language by referring to the Medu Neter as Hieroglyphics, a corrupt description) inscribed on the walls of the  pyramids and had no real understanding of what the so-called pyramids and burial chambers meant.  The esoteric inscriptions were outside of the Europeans ability to decipher and interpreted what they saw, as well as experienced in coming in contact with this ancient spiritual systems in Kemet, because the Romans and the Greeks had nothing in its schools of thought at that time to measure the Kemetic Gods nor record and measure this superior civilization, which was rooted in the beginning of time (this knowledge went back over 76 trillion years ago). Plato, Socrates and Aristotle deep down in their souls knew that Kemet as a civilization recognized that God had been present and had walked amongst these mortal beings and had guided these Nubian Masters—everything the Europeans saw and witnessed from the Kemites were rooted in the higher spiritual sciences that were coded in mathematical and scientific formulas (unknown to the minds and schools of thoughts of the Europeans).

The Medu Neter as a language even appeared to them to be foreign because the system of communication was coded in formulas that were so profound, it was outside of their knowledge base, which gave way to a superior system of alchemy and architecture and engineering that even to this very day have baffled Western scientist. They do not understand the divine numerology and the higher elevation of Nubian people who had descended and ascended in space, a place reserved for the Grand Architect of the Universe—these Kemetic Nubians had become Gods based on the transmission of the spiritual sciences. Once again the Greeks called the inscriptions on the sacred tombs Hieroglyphics.

They could not understand what Maat meant and Ausur (Osiris), Asset (Isis) and Huru (Horace) the original Trinity stories that came before and predate the symbolic and allegorical  story of Hiram Abiff (reference JSM Ward Who was Hiram Abiff?), the Master Builder who was raised and resurrected from the dead; this ancient tale of death and resurrection went back to Kemet—the story of immortality of the soul. Also, there were other pagan stories relating to the birth, death, resurrection and ascension (according to Kersey Graves in his monumental book titled: The World's Sixteen Crucified Saviors (or Christianity Before Christ), which predated the Masonic tale of Hiram Abiff, the Master Builder and the similar story that was associated with Jesus, the Christ (or properly known as Yeshua Ben Yosef) derived from the Kemetic tales of Osiris (Ausur) or much older sources. These ancient Pagan tales even predated the virgin birth story of the Savior born on December 25, but these tales only implied that man concocted their religious theology from studying the winter and summer solstice (the death and resurrection of the sun).

The charting of the sun, moon and stars—the understanding of the two Masonic columns—Boaz (strength) and Jachin (beauty) giving to us as Entered Apprentice the first degree of Freemasonry, it was leading us towards understanding universal laws and spiritual divine principles, it was pointing us towards understanding the in depth knowledge in studying the macrocosm and the microcosm universe (so as it is above, so it’s below). The above mentioned columns were pointing us to go after the universal knowledge found in the Celestial and Terrestrial earth and universal plains, it was meant to open up the philosophical third eye and lead us to the understanding of the interrelations and interconnectedness with the heavens and earth; this too is rooted in the study of Geometry and Astronomy (the science of mathematics/numerology and the Zodiac has tremendous value) in the realm of the esoteric.

The Masonic Lodge is symbolic and emblematic of how the ancients charted the sun, moon and stars and when Imhotep (the father of modern medicine) constructed the first step pyramid, he set it up due East and due West (the three principles officers of the lodge the Worshipful Master, Senior Warden and the Junior Warden—it is not coincidental that the Worshipful Master sits in the East (symbolic of Amen-Ra and the sun), the Light and radiation of the ancient knowledge of all the philosophical master teachers should emanate from the representative of the sun and the brothers should revolve around truth, morality and the wisdom of enlightenment being exemplified by the Master of the lodge (how can we have a teacher unless one be sent).

The working tools used to construct the great pyramids were unknown to this world, but the perfection of the perpendiculars, horizontals and the cubic square roots, were an indication that Pyramid Builders were Gods that had  been exposed to geometric-mathematical codes and languages that were so sophisticated that the entire Nile Valley was created as a glimpse of heaven on earth the burial chambers went beyond the mere preservation of dead but symbolic housed the souls of the original people and the sacredness was not in the embalmment or scientific chemicals nor the mummification, it went beyond eternal life and the immortality of the soul.

Although, Albert G. MacKey, Albert Pike and Manly P. Hall were prolific Masonic writers and thinkers and even Masonic writers of this century like Allen Roberts, Robert Lomas, Christopher Knight. The scholars of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard, Oxford, the Sorbonne, Stanford, etc., none of them understood the true keys of unlocking the mind of symbolic Hiram (the black man and woman of America who was hit in the head and brought on a westerly course) who left some unfinished work on the trestle board as he was the mastermind behind that architecture layout and construction of King Solomon’s Temple; thus, as perfect as the pyramids were in Kemet (Egypt) they only represented a sign of the work (esoteric, Occult and Gnostic) that still lie ahead for the original man (one of greatest hidden secrets is that the Black man is God and has a mind equalvent to the Grand Architect of the Universe).            

In the "Masonic Quiz Book" we find questions and answers concerning the Ancient Egyptians and the Great Pyramids:

Question: "From what people are most of our Masonic symbols taken?" Answer: "From the Egyptians, who formed the world's oldest civilization."

Question: "What country of ancient times was the cradle of all the mysteries?" Answer: "At one time Egypt was in possession of all the learning and religion that was to be found in the world. It extended to other nations the influence of its sacred rites and esoteric doctrines."

: "Who built the Pyramid of Gizah and for what purpose? Answer: "Khufu, for the study of the stars."

Question: "What are the dimensions of the Great Pyramid of Gizah?" Answer: "Its base is 761 feet 8 inches on each side and it is 485 feet high. It was built of large stones, none less than thirty feet long and five feet square quarried at a great distance, transported hundreds of miles, crossing the river Nile, and raised to their lofty position in the structure by methods unknown to the engineers of today."

Question: "What is Alchemy?" Answer: "A so-called division of chemistry, treating of the art:

Question: "By what other name was the science of Alchemy called?"
Answer: "The Hermetic Philosophy, because it is said to have been first taught by Hermes Trismegistus in Egypt."

Question: "Who was Pythagoras?" Answer: "One of the most celebrated of the Greek philosophers" Question: "How many years did Pythagoras have to wait for initiation into the hidden mysteries of Egypt?" Answer: "Twenty (20) years."

Question: "What is the forty-seventh (47th) problem of Euclid?" Answer: "In any right angled triangle, the square which is described upon the side subtending the right angle, is equal to squares described upon the sides which contain the right angle."

My brothers, we have a greater job duty and responsibility, which is our Enlightenment and wisdom must now lead us outside of the Blue Lodge, Red House, Consistory and Shrine Temple and use this knowledge to get deeper involved in the community as frontliners. We should establish pacts and alliances with other progressive groups and organizations such as: the Nation of Islam, the Nations of Gods and Earths, Black lives Matter, Black Pan-Hellenic Greek Lettered Fraternities and Sororities, the Black Moors and those that follow the Prophet Noble Drew Ali, Sunni Islam, Bahia Faith, Black Progressive Pan-African Christians, black labor movements, Rastafarians, Black Nationalist, Pan-Africanist, Afrocentric thinkers, etc.

We should not be afraid to build with these brothers and sisters and be able to stand perpendicular on the square and compass. What are we seeking? More LIGHT in Masonry. The greatest knowledge that we can attain is the knowledge of self. We sit and read about CushJerusalem, Egypt, Mecca and Medina--these are real places and constitute the history of the Nubian original man. We have empowering knowledge in our Masonic teachings and lessons and yet even after we are raised to a living perpendicular many of remain dead in actions and deeds.
