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 descendants 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'√©tat 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.
