                          HOW ARE SECRET SOCIETIES BUILT?

By Fahim A. Knight-El

All Orders are rooted and established and constructed on a foundation that has to be embedded in an intellectual and philosophical base (this is essential in establishing the fraternal bond and given purpose and meaning to why it is important to be a part of a particular Order or Society). This is also necessary to solidify direction and leadership that eventually leads to followership, which must be undergirded by a set of ideas that have been historically rooted in the mystics of Esoteric, Gnostic and Occult. Thus, every fraternal movement and/or organization has a mission statement, as well as objectives, goals and organizational structure. This will encompass core beliefs, practices, requirements, etc., in which each initiate or neophyte will have access to the same pedagogy and serve as the guidelines to their entry into the order of brotherhood/sisterhood relative to elevation (the so-called transition from darkness to light). The organizational admission standards have to be based on something that is tangible and agreed upon by the organizational leadership. The Orders have an agreed philosophical curriculum; this is what has made the Freemasons successful as an organization because they have an agreed history and the ritual is tied to ancient practices and historical events, and persons of significance whether it is the Knights Templar's, Jesuits, Christian Islamic Crusades, Scottish Rites, York Rites, Knights of Columbus, Elks, Odd-Fellows, etc., they all have an established protocol relative to reading materials and ritual requirements..

It is from here that such powerful Orders such as: the Illuminati, Roundtable, House Rothschild, Carlyle Group, Club of Rome, the Milner Group, Bilderberg Group, Trilateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations and others seek to rule and dominate the world—these enlightened organizations have always been well financed and possesses an Elite Class of membership. But there are layers of shields and covers in which the outer circle of the membership do not know who the true powerbrokers, which function within the inner circle. The secret societies such as the Boule, the African American Order does not factor into the real power schemes nor does layman Freemasonry; these fraternal Orders are merely civic and social societies, but this is not to suggest that on a minor level they do not wield influence and power over their constituents—these Orders do posses a system of networking that factors into the political, economic and social outcomes of black America, but their main principle is to serve as a buffer and as a distraction in protecting and guarding the real Power Brokers.

Let me insure you that Jay-Z, Kanye West, Rihanna, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Snoop Dogg, Madonna, Eminem, Beyonce, etc., just to mention a few and for the ignorant public to suggest and imply that these low-level operatives are part of the Illuminati is ludicrous, perhaps its founder Dr. Adam Weishaupt is turning over in his grave to insult him and his Order of Illuminati by mentioning these ignorant entertainers and celebrities who do not have a clue of how the world function or operate as being members of the Illuminati. There is an Invisible Hand that controls the global banking system and dictates what political course the world leaders are going to take.  They even have the power to determine wars and conflicts and their outcomes, they even determine who eats on the planet and who starves on the planet, they are also above all nations jurisprudence systems and function at the highest levels of the sovereign individual status. Jay-Z and no other entertainer have this type of global influence and power (these entertainers are only pawns and decoys). However, these same entertainers desire to make the public believe that they are part of a covert order of brotherhood and sisterhood that operates under the guise and cloak of a secret society—they intentionally infer that this secret society is the Illuminati (this false organizational connection wins them kudos in the world of social media). The tabloids and various entertaining networks and paparazzi photographers reinforce this foolishness by offering up snapshots of entertainers supposedly given the signs and symbols of the Illuminati (the real members of the Illuminati have no use to give signs, they are nameless and faceless and we all feel their influence and power daily when we go to the gas pump and also we can feel that the U.S. Dollar has lost is power as the monetary currency of the world). Thus, even my daughter and sons have shown me pictures on Instagram, Facebook and on various sites on the Internet where these Black entertainers are flashing the sign of a pyramid and others are flashing the sign of all SEEING EYE OF HERU (Horace) and Ausar (Osiris) and Aset (Isis) and this is supposed to be clear evidence of their Illuminati connections.

I do not care how much money Jay-Z may profess to have, his wealth does not even constitute one generation of wealth-holders and he will never be allowed to sit in the same room with the Rothschilds and Rockefellers or any of the Invisible Dynastic Family members unless he is there to shine their shoes and go fetch some coffee or may be he is being given an assignment by them. It is an insult to mention Jay-Z and others in the same breath of Rothschilds and Rockefellers (the chief Illuminati)—Jay-Z is powerless and is a member of the Goyim like the rest of us who represents the 85% of humanity. It is these individuals that make the world go around; figuratively speaking they have so much wealth and power and are connected on every level that one cannot imagine that this small group rules the entire world and answers to no one (they have power to make and break entertainers). They will never invite the likes of Jay-Z and Beyonce into their world. They have not invited President Barack Obama into their world, if you do not know this by now, he works for the Order and he to is powerless and takes his directions from his paymasters. They have the original Holy Grail and the original Sanskrit spiritual written texts, the Sumerians texts and have the true keys to unlock the Da Vinci Code. The Illuminati dates back to at least 1776 and European Freemasonry goes back to 1717 in which most Orders modeled and fashioned themselves after Freemasonry, but lest not get it twisted there are layers of Freemasonry which is even beyond High Degree Freemasonry (meaning the 33rd Degree is just an outward deception).

I believe they systematically stole our ancient wisdom and knowledge from us, and we have the job, duty and responsibility to reclaim what rightfully belongs to us. I have been on this journey for many years now and the only thing that is going to wake us up from our slumber is the undiluted truth. They robbed us of the knowledge of self and kind; they did not desire for us to know that it was black people who built the ancient civilizations in Kemet (ancient Egypt) and Kush (ancient Ethiopia) because to know this would have inspired us to do great things even in 2013. Black people gave the world the true practice of Freemasonry, if you view the overt symbolism, rituals, sacraments, relics, etc., it all points to some aspect of the Nubian people. The signs and symbols belong to the black man. Egypt once use to be a black skinned nation until the invaders and imposters came. 

I am familiar with the works of Aleister Crowley and others of this type school of thought. I am also very familiar with the ritual and symbolic parallel of some of these pagan traditions. Many of them are rooted in the worship of the Winter and Summer Solstice and are played out as complimentary and oppositional forces relative to the Solar Deities (we have these philosophical prototypes and allegorical similarities in the stories of Ausar (Osiris), Adonis, Mithras, Apollo, etc. There is a very good read authored by Kersey Graves titled, "The World's Sixteen Crucified Saviors". Thus, many alternative religions (and traditional religions as well) deal with the birth, death, resurrection and ascension themes as the foundation of their beliefs and practices. Thus, even blood oaths are based on old pagan traditions; I have touched on some of these various subjects in articles that I have posted on my Blog. The teachings of esoteric, Gnostic, metaphysical science, occult  thoughts have one primary objective, which is almost always rooted in the concepts of enlightenment and morality; these are key phrases that will be ever occurring in the neophytes journey of moving perspective initiates toward a goal of elevation. The Mason's rely heavily on the symbolic character of Hiram Abiff, the Master Builder to hammer home the importance of morality.

The Hiram Abiff legend is the key to unlocking so many pieces relative to our political, economic, and social history in America. Many of us who have traveled the Masonic path; even after we are raised, we still remain victims to failing to acquire the knowledge of self and we do not understand nor accept that the dramatized Master Mason ritual enacted in the third degree ceremony is actually a rendition of what happened to the black man and black woman of America. They do not realized that it was they who were hit in head and brought on a westerly course; they have not accepted that Chattel Slavery was one of the greatest crimes that were ever committed against humanity. I am sorry to tell you this that in most Freemasonic lodges and their govern jurisdictions ignorance is pervasive and in most black Masonic lodges whether Prince Hall and/or non-Prince Hall, it is more about the social—partying, drinking alcohol and chasing women (not all brothers fit into this category because I know and interact with some serious minded young Masonic brothers who have committed themselves to study and self-improvement). I have an obligation to tell the truth and this often makes me unpopular (it also made Jesus and Muhammad unpopular so I am in good company), but it does not matter because I can stand perpendicular on the square ninety degrees upright and speak the truth. The older brothers are stuck in one place which is mastering the ritual, but often truly negating most of the Land Marks of masonry and remember we were systematically made blind, deaf and dumb to the knowledge of self. What is Masonry: Masonry is a beautiful system of morality, veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols (there is so much in the Speculative definition).

Most Orders do not prescribe to a religious dogma, but are open to individuals of various religions when it comes to membership (this an example of the universality approach). Membership into the public low low-level front type Orders are of course entirely different from membership into the Higher Elitist Orders; membership in the Upper Echelon Orders is rooted in longstanding aristocratic blood linage and supported by Dynastic Family Wealth—this membership is highly selective and highly guarded. There is no application or ballot cast; it is only made available to the heirs as part of their class/cast hierarchy and to ensure the continuation of the agenda of dominating the affairs of humanity by controlling the world’s wealth. They constitute the Hidden Hand and they have been taught to see themselves as gods on earth. Yet, the principles of religion are often subtly incorporated in the philosophical teachings of the Order. For example, in Freemasonry, it only requires that one believe in Deity whether he is called Yahweh, Elohim, Allah, Jah, Jehovah, etc., in which all faiths are welcome to be members.  A mystical philosophical curriculum will be the guidelines and teachings that are prescribed by the Order; thus, most Societies and Orders do not openly make their rituals and teachings available to outsiders who have not been initiated into the Order. The devised ritual and philosophy often can only be obtained in secrecy (some who have entered into these various orders and have later found it necessary to breach their oath and reveal publically the rituals and teachings). Freemasons reject the term or accusation that they are a secret society, but they consider themselves to be an organization with secrets.

I do think that all Oaths are designed to create a sublime and holy sanctity of what is at hand and/or going to be undertaking. I think many of them acknowledges the presences of a Higher Power (this solidifies fraternal and sorority affirmation—even if they view themselves as god). Freemasons often include the language of the Grand Architect of the Universe as a supplication to the undertaking task. They gather in his name and by his power and invoking a Higher Being, it creates an equal high level of seriousness for the traveling Neophyte. Moreover, with any solemn obligation and undertaking, it is meant to achieve something outside of our physical reality and tap into our deepest spiritual realms. I know in the West, divine reverence is almost always invoke as part of the initiation lexicon and this gives a deeper spiritual credence to the mystery steps that the initiate is about to embark upon. This is ordinary confirmed via on a book of divine law (Vedas, Qur'an, Torah or the Gospel, etc.) which allows the potential candidate to visualize the importance of morality and self-Improvement. Those of us who are awake might even choose to take this undertaking on ancient scrolls such as the "Husia: Sacred Wisdom of Ancient Egypt" or even on the book titled, "The Egyptian Book of the Dead: The Book of Going Forth by Day". This will correlate the potential candidate to a traveling path that reminds him/her that this mission is much bigger than his/her physical self by being rooted in the spiritual realm and have it seen through the metaphysical lens of the third Eye.

I know Freemasonry has many detractors even amongst its ranks who has openly revealed the ritual and the teachings of the Order—From time-to-time this will always occur because of members who becomes disgruntled and/or dissatisfied in which written rituals, and lessons starts to show up in the public domain. This type information was distributed to potential Neophytes who desired to travel up the ladder (one can only attain degrees by demonstrating a high level of study and retention of information) may one day for whatever reason choose to expose what he has learned in secrecy and in confidentiality. The Orders teaches that the symbolism, signs, tokens, passwords, etc., all have to be established and held in the secret breast (meaning in the heart) of man/woman and never dispensed to those who have not traveled this same path. I am of the strong belief that any successful fraternity or sorority must have required reading materials that lay the foundation for moving the neophytes relative to degrees and transitioning them into the ancient mysteries. Their study and comprehension level must reflect a mastering of the intended lessons by showing forth suitable proficiency in order to justify moving on to the next level of study. I suggest to all my readers that you read and study Manly P. Hall (he was a 33rd Degree Freemason and a profound scholar) book titled, "Secret Teachings of All Ages" before this undertaking prepare yourself mentally and spiritually. Hall’s book is a necessary read, but I must inform you that it’s not a book to be read, but a book to be studied. It took me some years to get through the gamut of information that Hall lays out relative to the Mystical intent of all the ancient lessons.

The first lesson that was imparted, to me was "Man know Thyself" it took me years to grasp the meaning of this most important life lesson and it led me to the realization of the interconnectedness of the divine principles of truth. We often search outside ourselves looking for answers—these longings often lead us to organized religion and we began to embrace external concepts while our deep spiritual inner self suffers and our development do not reach its full potential. Our lives become cycles of incomplete energy and there is always a yearning to make ourselves whole. Our quest should be to find and embrace all divine laws and universal truths—and let this be our source and guide, and negate artificial schools of thought.

I must admit traveling certain spiritual paths can be a lonely journey and often isolation is one of those human variables that at times is difficult to grasp, perhaps because we fail to understand that there are different degrees/levels of consciousness and it’s this variable that often leads to disappointment. The Creator leads and guides whom he/she pleases and there is no mistake of whatever we are doing right now, it’s definitely what we are suppose to be doing and it has a purpose. People will be attracted to our LIGHT and we have a responsibility to be good stewards of the wisdom and knowledge that we have acquired by the permission of the Creator. One of my teachers was the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and he said my teachings can be summed up in six words "Accept your own and be yourself".  And he also said of all the knowledge that one can acquire there is no knowledge more beneficial than the knowledge of self.

Thus, to be awake and conscious in this day and time is a blessing, which places us in a very good predicament and that is how we all should view our present space and time of where we are right now; regardless of how things are around us. I have always taken certain challenges upon my self of desiring to shake people up and say to them: 'do you see what I see?' But unless you come into the knowledge of self many of us will continue to wander in darkness; I have come to the assumption that many will remain as wanderers in darkness until something very drastic happens in their lives on a very personal level and, perhaps at that moment, it will start them to reevaluate things and come to the conclusion that a paradigm shift has taking place and this will force us to change our worldview. All of humanity has been systematically made blind, deaf, and dumb when it comes to understanding and decoding what’s around them, it is easy to lose optimism and become pessimistic about humanity’s future possibilities to overcome the duping and to become fully awaken appears to be bleak. It is difficult to anticipate their next move because it is like playing chess and one has to have the intuitiveness, natural instinct and insight to visualize their next move (those who have this ability are already eons above humanity’s present capacity)—the powerful Orders have already declared checkmate.

By Fahim A. Knight-El

This Blog/article is not written as an apologist in support of Islam or in denunciation of other religions, if the truth be told, I have a problem with all religions and how they are taught and practice that is another subject for another time, but this article was written as an expression of my opposition to how terrorism and Al-Qaeda has become associated with Islam, which have justified this new wave of imperialism spearheaded by Western governments. I think those who profess the belief in Islam and are Muslims have every right to express their views and practice their faith tradition. The Western media has demonized the religion of Islam and have attempted to compartmentalize the various factions that exist in this diverse religion, but have intentionally and systematically heighten the extremist, militant and radical factions in the media via the propaganda machines in order justify an assault on Muslims in the name of combating terrorism. The recent faces of terrorism has been associated with Al-Qaeda and of course this is intentionally done, which justifies the intended end results—of a Global Federated Union (United Powers with no borders and will appear unrecognizable to the masses of humanity—translates to mean a New World Order and One World Government is the ultimate objective) where the majority of the planet's natural resources could be stolen and confiscated in the name of fighting terrorism. Islam is no more of a terroristic threat to humanity than Christianity (but many of us have gotten caught up in the hype). 

The religion of Islam was founded by Prophet Muhammad Ibn Abdullah (570 A.D.-632 A.D.).  Muhammad was a sheepherder from the Quraysh tribe of  Mecca. And at the age of 40 (610 A.D.) he was in an isolated cave praying and meditating in which the archangel Gabriel (Jabril) appeared and commanded that he read in the name of thy Lord. Muhammad was illiterate and could not read and write; this vision represented the beginnings of how the Holy Qur’an would be revealed from Allah (God) to himself. The people of Mecca worshiped over 365 different Gods (idol worship) and the social system was backwards and lacked structure in which Muhammad’s divinely inspired mission changed all of that. The Kaaba, which would become the holiest Mosque of Islam (millions of Muslim pilgrims makes the pilgrimage to Mecca every year and billions turn East towards Mecca to pray daily). It was believed by the Muslims that Abraham and his son, Ishmael built this structure (there is a lot of symbolism behind the black stone and who and what it truly represents). Muhammad for the next 23 1/2 years would receive these visions from the angel Gabriel in which some of his close companions would help him compile these divinely inspired words into the Qur’an (the spiritual guide for Islam). Muslims believe that the Qur'an is the last revealed word of God and the basic source of Islamic teachings and laws. It deals with a variety of subjects including the basic beliefs of Islam (five princples), morality, ethics, war, family structure, diet, worship, knowledge, wisdom, God ­and-man relationship, and define relations among human beings, etc. Islam is built upon a comprehensive set of beliefs and teachings on which systems of social justice, politics, economics, legislation, jurisprudence, law and international relations, etc., have being built stemming mainly from the Qur' an and Hadiths in which Muslim societies and individuals adhere. The Arabic word Islam translate to mean peace and submission and those who adhere to the religion of Islam are called Muslims, which means one who submits his or her will to do the will of Allah (God).

Let me give a brief example of the contradictions that are often made relative to Islam and Muslims in particular, in this so-called new era of the war on terror. The majority of the wars and conflicts over the last 500- 600 hundred years have been caused and/or instigated by so-called European Nations such as the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, United States, Belgium, etc., these nations have heaped a gamut of violence and devastation on humanity relative to the massive loss of human life and global instability (for example, here are two major wars World War I and World War II) that is not to overlook the Korean War and the Vietnam War and the thousands of skirmishes that have occurred before the Cold War and post Cold War era. Yet, I still do not think it is fair to demonize and ridicule Christians and those who profess belief in Jesus because of the actions of the above said nations, which claim to be Christian nations, but who have deliberately raped and robbed the planet by imposing the Missionaries, Merchants and Militaries as a team of destruction against humanity. They have been behind every conflict on the planet since their 6,000 year existent on the planet.  

I and, perhaps many others have stood against the recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan (I stand as a conscientious objector) that are being fought by the poor only to enhance the global positioning of the wealthy and rich, which to continue exploiting these nations natural resources—their motivation has always been about greed. Our U.S. Military Veterans are returning to the States after war and are suffering from various forms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and many will be traumatized for life and they are being denied adequate health care and treatment by the U.S. Government. There are others who were physically mangled and now permanently debilitated and disabled, but they have to fight their own government for veterans disability benefits and many come back unemployed and the same government that they fought for have turned their backs on the soldiers (I am deeply appalled by these acts of betrayal, which a large percentage of these military veterans are African Americans). It gets even more painful because the sad reality is, that after being discharged from active service they are faced with the harsh reality that they were mere foreign policy tools who are of no further use to the government. They do not know that the Rockefellers and Rothschilds do not give a damn about their conditions or lives, the poor are deemed expendable (fight and die for me and might give you a medal of patriotism)—your job and duty is to fight foreign battles that positions them on the chessboard to be in a better position to steal other nations wealth (this could be seen with the theft of oil, gold, dope, food, diamonds, minerals, metals, etc.). Moreover, many have lost their lives in name of false patriotism while the Dynastic families continue to laugh all the way to the bank.

We also detest the use of Drone warfare and the killing of innocent people in the Middle East and Africa (a killing machine with no character—this statement has a double intended meaning which includes how I view our commander-in-chief). I even heard one Talking Head recently say during the Christopher Dorner scenario, the former Los Angles cop who wrote his 'Manifesto' and then went to war with the Los Angles Police Department. Some have called him a 'rogue' cop and others were sympathetic to his grievances, but the statement made by a Talking Head immediately caught my attention because of the danger it presents to those of us are considered American citizens. The Talking Head asked some law enforcement expert, when should the United States Government consider using drones inside our nation against U.S. citizens and was Dorner a prime candidate for sending a drone? What most people have already forgotten was that this had already been done when the U.S. Government used a drone and assassinated Imam Anwar al-Awlaki in 2011, although, he was born in Yemen he was an American citizen. So in one sense the killing of an American citizen with a drone had its precedent in the murder of Imam Anwar al-Awlaki.

They have made Muslims and Islam out to be public enemy number one because they refuse to lie down and allow the West to continue to unjustly oppressed them by stealing their natural resources in the name of fighting terror (how in the hell can you fight 'terror'?) Islam is not the threat to world peace, but those who sit in the Vatican, Washington, DC and in Jerusalem and the masterminds behind manipulating nation’s monetary reserves and controlling the flow of money, those who use the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank to enslave Developing Nations are the true enemies of peace, justice, liberty and human prosperity. But many in the United States of America are so blinded by the propaganda and disinformation (Minister Malcolm X said it best: we have been hoodwinked and bamboozled) that the enemies of us Sheepel conveniently uses our ignorance against us in order to carry their agenda far and wide and without opposition (the ruling class does not believe in God—they see themselves as gods).

I write as an activist to wake people up from their slumber and provide them with a perspective that they often cannot get from the corporate media, which constantly bombards us with propaganda and disinformation. For example, the recent events involving France and the tiny African nation of Mali (West Africa) wasn't about so-called Islamic insurgents or Al-Qaeda cells operating in Mali, but it was about neo-imperialism and neo-colonialism of this mineral rich African nation. France, United States and other European nations view this region as being vital to their strategic and tactical agenda and objective when it comes to controlling weaker and powerless nation’s natural resources and mineral rights. However, they would desire for us to believe that Al-Qaeda was beginning to influence that region and they have the God given right to curtail this so-called terrorist momentum evolving in Sub-Sahara Africa (the epitome Western arrogance).

It is still evident that most of the America people remain victims of western propaganda and it also evident that the duping has had a tremendous effect on our psychological outlook and our view of the world perspective. If a sovereign nation chooses to govern themselves under Sharia law, it is their right to make that governmental rulership decision, which would be no different than a Western Government choosing democracy as their form of government and/or some Eastern government choosing Socialism or Communism; I do think that Muslims and Islam have the right to self-determination, without Western inference, as well as all other sovereign people should have this same right. However, I have more of a problem with these Western governments that claim to be of democracy and professing democratic rule, but historically and presently they have always attempted to impose their will on black, brown, yellow, and red people because they were culturally different and often were blessed to have an abundance of natural resources beneath their feet —these vipers are much more dangerous than those who function under Sharia law.

Yet, the masses of the people are oppressed by the ruling Elite, which is that 1% percent who also controls 95% of the world's wealth (this greed sector is beyond any class of Arabs); it is this disparity that drives people to opposed the West and their global ideas. People in Europe are deeply oppressed because of that small minority Invisible Hand that controls the Bank of England and manipulates the European Central Banking system (the European Common Market and Euro is fading and many of the Western European nations are in a downward economic spiral). The Pope of Rome (the most powerful and influential arch- deceiver on the planet), the leader of all Christendom is in a secret pact with the corrupt ruling class of Mecca, the Wahhabis (the imposters Saud lineage that eventually pushed the dark skinned African-Arabs off their original ancestors land, which is the Arabian Peninsula). This is documented in a book authored by Drusilla Dunjee Houston titled: "Wonderful Ethiopians of the Ancient Cushite Empire" and Dr. Wesley Muhammad book titled: "Black Arabia & The African Origin of Islam" also verifies this historical contention. But I first learned about how the darker skinned people of Kemet (Egypt) and Kush (Ethiopia) were systematically pushed southward my alien invaders and imposters by being exposed to the works of Dr. Chancellor Williams titled: "Destruction of Black Civilization : Great Issues of a Race from 4500 B.C to 2000 A.D."

The religion of Judaism is the oldest of the three world’s great religions that originated in and around Jerusalem, perhaps the holiest city relative to the religion of Judaism. Thus, many theologians and biblical scholars have traced the origins of Judaism back to the biblical Prophet Abraham, which according to the Torah (Old Testament Bible) Abraham had two sons Isaac and Ishmael and Abraham is often referred to as the father of nations (the twelve Tribes of Judah originates out of the lineage of Abraham). Many believe that biblical Jews were a persecuted and dispossessed people, which God promised them a homeland and victory over their enemies. Jews were exiled from many lands and countries and became wanders from nation-to-nation. Some scholars believe from this history God looked favorably upon the Jewish people in which a divine covenant was established. The Torah makes reference to Yahweh (God) commanding Abraham to take his son up on the mountain top for sacrifice and depending if you are talking to a Jew/Christian they would declare that Isaac was the son chosen by Yahweh (God) for sacrifice. But Muslims and those of the Islamic faith believed that it was Ishmael who was chosen as the beloved of God (this discrepancy has caused a deep political, social and economic rift between the people and lands).

Jews believe that Yahweh chose Moses (and his brother Aaron) as two of the most important prophets of the Jewish religion and on Mount Sinai he was inspired and given the Ten Commandments by Yahweh (God’s Law), which to guide the Israelites. These sacred laws would become the foundation of Jewish theological jurisprudence along with the Jewish Talmud (is a compilation of oral Rabbinic interpretations of Jewish laws, philosophy, teachings, which is rooted in how Jewish ethics and moral principles are to be determined and followed).

I have read the book “Thirteenth Tribe” authored by Arthur Koestler who I recognize as an authority on Jewish ethnicity, nationality and geo-political transitions of this so-called dispersed and expelled people. The Eastern European Ashkenazi Jew, which some historians believe is of direct linage to the Asiatic Khazars Jews who originated in that region of the world between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea, perhaps stood as the original homeland of the Khazars. However, the Ashkenazi Jews had their origin in Eastern Europe (Poland, Russia, Lithuania, Romania, Hungary, Ukraine, etc.—these Jews perhaps embraced and carried the modern Zionism theory further than any other sector of Jews. Yet, I do think many historians and social scientist have made some plausible arguments relative to how these Jews co-opted and integrated themselves within and into, other societies in particular in Europe, North Africa, Middle East, Asia, United States, South America, etc., shielded their identity behind race and religion (this was their modus operandi since their 6,000 year history). Some have asked the question what is a Jew, is it a race or religion?  The Sephardic Jews (so-called Semites) all claim to be from the Biblical seed of Abraham in which the tribes of Ishmael (Arabs) and Isaac (Jews) these are essentially the same people whom both of them have one father, which is Abraham. The Jews are a very diverse racial, ethic and nationality (so we do know this much that Jews are not a race of people) in which it is difficult and almost impossible to classify Jews as distinct nationality and/or race. Thus, most modern Jews who settled in Israel today are of the Ashkenazi and Khazar lineage (Jews who migrated from Eastern Europe to Israel) but there is a more indigenous group called the Sephardic Jew who are of kinship to the Semites (lets not forget that Arabs are Semites), but has no ethnic relations to the original Nubian Jews or Hebrew Israelites.

My research also revealed that even prior to Abraham and Moses scholars such as Jose V. Malcioln in his book titled: The African Origins of Modern Judaism: From Hebrews to Jews, maintained in ancient Ethiopia (Kush), Africa that there were a community of Jews known as the Falashas (or the Beta Jews) that predated the history and story of Moses by thousands of years and these scholars even maintain that they were the original Hebrew Israelites. There are other scholars who have drawn this same conclusion such as Ella J. Hughley in book titled, The Truth About Black Biblical Hebrew-Israelites (Jews) and Cohane Michael Ben Levi book titled, Israelites and Jews: The Significant Differences . It was Theodor Herzl, the modern Father of Zionism who in 1880s visualized the idea of a Jewish homeland (Zionist State) for the dispossessed Jews eventually settling on Palestine, but other countries were considered as a possible Jewish State before the Jews settled on Palestine. The political, economic and social agreement between the Arabs and Jews were established by the European Powers in 1917 and laid out in the Balfour Declaration Treaty and one of the best reference books was titled: “Crescent and Star: Arab and Israeli Perspectives on the Middle East Conflict;’ edited by Yonah Alexander and Nicholas N. Kittrie. Wherever, people line up on this issue, it will always be a highly charged debate. Some have accused the Zionist with unspeakable crimes against the Palestinian people and have charged them with stealing the Palestinian’s land, but others argue that the Jews were the ‘chosen people’ of God and were promised this land. I personally would like to see a Two State solution where the rights of Palestinian sovereignty is honored and accepted by the Israelis and the United Nations (no superficial solution can resolve this land dispute).  

I think everyone has the right to fight whatever battles they see fit. I am not overly consumed with Jews and Zionism; I have had to constantly remind some that my Blog and thoughts are not designed to constantly address the Zionist agenda. I think there are many in the black community that agrees with the struggles of the Palestinian people and support their right to self-determination. I have often challenged other anti-Zionist about their overly consuming focus on Jews and Jewish behavior (they see this as the root problem of the global suffering of humanity and they have every right to have drawn this conclusion) and lose sight of other things that matters in the world. I would interject other viewpoints and was willing to argue those points, but I am not overly consumed with dissecting every move that the Zionist makes on the chessboard. My Blog was designed to address issues dealing with African/African American people. However, I will never be willing to overlook racism because of the devastating effect it has had on people of African descent and I too view Zionism as a form of racism. So you will always read on my Blog issues that are germane to black people; yet I share a sizable amount of viewpoints with the anti-Zionist movement. But I am not overly consumed with the Jewish Conspiracy theory.

The religion of Christianity begin around the birth of Jesus (5 BC/BCE –c. 30 AD/CE) the son of Joseph and Mary, but this Messiah of Nazareth, Israel was everything but of human extraction. Most Christians believe that Jesus was born of a virgin birth on December 25 and had no earthly father, but God impregnated his mother Mary with the Holy Spirit. Most Biblical scholars and theologians would agree that Jesus life becomes a mystery between the ages 12-30, but some believe that he was being specially trained by Jewish Rabbis and scholars, thus, there is not enough historical evidence to verify much about Jesus early life. Jesus reappeared back on the seen at age 30 or 32 and was seen throughout lands teaching a new message of love, forgiveness and redemption. Jesus was confronted with the power of the Roman Government and Pontius Pilate because of his new teachings of healing and salvation, these teachings were viewed as a threat to the Roman society. He was charged with sedition and later would be hung on a cross next to a murderer and thief (they asked him was he the King of the Jews and he said they called me so). King Herod early on feared the birth of Jewish Messiah (Jewish myths and legends predicted the coming of a Messiah) and ordered the death and massacring of all males in Bethlehem under age two.

The Jews rejected Jesus and they do not view him as having any special relevance in the Jewish faith. The Jews also do not accept the New Testament as the prophetic fulfillment of the scriptures. Jesus unlike Moses did not teach the Torah (the law old testament) as his primary mission, he made it clear that his ministry wasn’t built on changing those religious precepts of old that were taught before him. But he felt that the teaching of love carried a greater spiritual weight —which was more rooted in a social Gospel of giving sight to the blind, causing the deaf to hear and the lame to walk. Those Disciples and witnesses referred to these acts as miracles (these acts attracted people to Jesus from across lands). The Bible gives a good example about Martha who had a brother named Lazarus that had died while Jesus was away and Jesus
was able to resurrect Lazarus from the dead. Jesus ministry was recorded after his death by the four Gospel writers Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, which became the essential writings of the New Testament. Jesus from a Christian perspective holds a special and lofty position and his mission and divinity cannot be seen outside of the concept of the Trinity—the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. Christians believe that Jesus on the third day so-called after his death was resurrected and ascended to heaven to sit on the throne next God. Jesus was given the title “Christ” which was defined as anointed one and one who was born to crush all wickedness. The religion of Christianity was established after the death of Jesus at Antioch. However, Christianity or the Christian creed, as well as how the religion would be taught and structured, was formalized in 325 A.D. by Constantine at the Council of Nicaea. Moreover, like most faith traditions Christians who are Protestants approach Christianity different from those who are Roman Catholics and there is no agreed systematic way to worship in Christianity. There are schisms, sects and denominations inside of Christianity. Muslims do not reject Jesus Christ, but his divinity and Messiah status have been relegated to viewing him just as one of the prophets of God and holds no special place. Jews do not recognize Jesus as the Messiah and he holds no lofty position within Judaism.
