THE HUMAN RACE & RACIAL INEQUITY-PART 8-continued-

TURKEY, IRAQ, IRAN  Use Ctrl + to enlarge

TURKEY & ITS RELATIONSHIP TO SYRIA, IRAQ, & IRAN

There are mainly three (3) religious groups of people residing in Turkey…Christians, Cryptos, and Muslims. The Cryptos are Christians that have a secret practice while publicly following another faith. Some people have a fear of making their faith known due to Turkish extremists. Muslims are of the Islam faith or ideology, and Islam is the main religion in Turkey, and it has connections to the Sunni sect who also promote ISIS, see previous post for details.

The Turks, who follow the Sunni tribal connection, are of an ancient Anatolian background from the Ottoman Empire era. They are the largest ethnic group living in Turkey. There is also a language called Turkic. The Turks want a pure Islamic state and discriminate against non-Turkish ethnic minorities such as Armenians, Assyrians, Greeks, Kurds, and Jews. The Turks also have hostility towards minority tribes; namely, Zazas, Alevis, Sufis, and Shiites which date back to pre-Islamic eras of Biblical scriptures, Spiritual practices, and folk religions. See “Racism in Turkey.”

osman 1 kingdom  The Ottomans were a tribe established  in ancient Anatolia, and it was named for the Kingdom of Osman 1, pictured. Osman was a leader of the Ottoman Turks and founder of the Ottoman Dynasty. Islam became the religion of these people after the conquest of Constantinople in 1453 which mainly had Christian ideals while Constantine was its leader. The Sunni Tribe or Turks of the Middle East became followers of Islam. The Tanzimat Reforms in the 19th Century equalized all Ottoman citizens by law. Until now, after all this time period since the Ottoman Empire, there is still discrimination taking place.

After World War 1 and the defeat of the Ottoman Empire, western allies made provisions to have a Kurdish state in 1920 with the Treaty of Sevres. Three (3) years later with the Treaty of Lausanna which set boundaries of modern Turkey, there were no provisions made for a Kurdish state which left the Kurds a minority status. Any moves by the Kurds since than hat been brutally quashed. There is a deep hostility between the Turkish state and Kurds since then. The Kurds are against an Islamic state which causes a deep hostility between the Turks and Kurds. This situation causes a true racial inequity “caused by religion.” 

BLUE MOSQUE

BLUE MOSQUE OR SULTAN AHMED MOSQUE WAS BUILT BY KURDS ON OR ABOUT 1609 AND COMPLETED ON OR ABOUT 1616 IN ISTANBUL

The Kurds are of the indigenous people of the Mesopotamia plains and are considered to be the largest stateless national group in the world. They total about thirty (30) million in the region. These ancient tribes now inhabit and spread throughout a mountainous region in northern Iraq, northeastern Syria, northwestern Iran, southeastern Turkey, and southwestern Armenia. They are a non-Arab people whose language belongs to the Iranian group of languages (Persian) and have suffered from persecution under the Ba-ath arty (socialist) of Iraq and Syria since the departure of British and French forces in the late 1940s. Turkey is an ally of the United States but the Kurdish situation needs to be resolved by Turkey.

The Armenian population, mostly in Istanbul, at one time totaled two (2) million in 1914. Because of a genocide, due to political and security reasons, occurring in 1915, it is now 50,000 to 70,000. They compose 15% to 20% of the population. The conflict was between the Armenians and the Turks. In 2011, the Turkish government gave Armenians the right to send their children to Turkish schools but students do not receive diplomas because they are not Turkish citizens. A report in 2015 states that the curriculum of schools continue to depict “Armenians and Greeks as the enemies of the country.” Although it was possible for Armenians to achieve status and wealth in the Ottoman Empire, as a community, they were accorded a status as second-class citizens and were regarded as fundamentally alien to the Muslim character of Ottoman society. Racism and discrimination in Turkey can be traced back to the Ottoman Empire.

For more information about the Armenians, see “Armenians in Turkey” on the internet.

For more information about the Kurds, see “Who are the Kurds” on the internet.

KURDISTAN  The Kurds want to create a homeland called Kurdistan which is now in Iraq. Kurdistan is not a country “now” but the Kurdish people want to establish this as an independent state. Kurdistan now is split into two (2) groups…Democratic Party (KDP) and the Patriotic Union (PUK).

The people of ancient Mesopotamia, Babylon, Assyria, and Akkad are explained more fully in Chapter 3 of “The Larger Spiritual Order & Universal Scheme of Things-Simplified.” They were known as Sumerians of Sumer (later Babylon). This clan settled in southern Mesopotamia. The Akkadians of Akkad settled in northern Mesopotamia. The Assyrians from the nation of Assyria, located in the area of western Asia, also settled in northern Mesopotamia, and this tribe was peopled with many races. A tribe is made up of numerous clans, and a clan is an expanded family. The Semites were also part of this arrangement and this is better explained in Chapter 3, “The Sacred Journey of Primitive Religions” in the treatise “The Larger Spiritual Order & Universal Scheme of Things-Simplified.” Chapter 10 is about “The Creation of Mankind-The Master Design.”

The latest conflict between Kurdish and Turkish people…Kurdish being the insurgent groups and Turkish being the government…is that the Kurds’ conflict is with ISIS while the Turks represent the Sunnis or ISIS situation with Syria. Armenians, or Kurds, also did terrible things to Turks during wars which the Turks now remember. Hate crimes are mainly against Armenians. The Assyrians also share a similar fate to that of Armenians. Assyrians historically could not become civil servants in Turkey, and they could not attend military schools, become officers in the army, or join the police. Turks barred Greek citizens from a series of thirty (30) trades and professions from tailoring and carpentry to medicine, law, and real estate. The Greek minority continues to encounter problems relating to education and property rights.

QATAR  QATAR has a long history of being on the same side as Turkey in regard to conflicts. Turkey is deploying troops to Qatar in the latest conflict with Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Comores, Egypt, Maldives, Mauritania, Senegal and the United Arab Emirates. These countries are breaking diplomatic ties with Qatar because Qatar is supplying support for terrorism., and they are blocking Qatar Airways from their airspace. However, Qatar is finding airspace from Iran by using their airspace. The humanitarian crises deepens as peaceful negotiations are ongoing to resolve the situation. Qatar is seeking compensation from these countries.    

Islam of the Sunni sect is Qatar’s state religion. Asian and African workers are not treated well, and it is stated there is a system of slavery and oppression for people who come to Qatar to work. 19.8% of the Christians living here are a mix of European, North and South American, and Asian. Some Mideast and African people who are living outside of their native country are also working in Qatar.

Many reasons for racial inequities are the rebellion against religions made by humans. Perhaps more Spiritualism (which encompasses people from all religions) should be introduced to the world and its people. Religion has a power by leaders while Spiritualism has a power by God or the electromagnetic energy of the Universal Life Force. Terrorism has no religion.                    

If terrorism is not checked, religious and spiritual freedom is at risk. America was built on the Love of God. Because of this, America has been the leader of the world since the inception of its Constitution. This 21st Century is the time in history when millions of Souls who are ready to be enlightened shall be given more energy from the Universe to do so. This shall be of tremendous assistance to the world’s racial inequities.

TURKEY

On a lighter note, a bird from Madagascar made it to Turkey by merchant ship at which time it was brought to England and then to America by way of other merchant ships. Ergo, the turkey.

ALL TOGETHER NOW

Next month, the MENA region shall be continued.

ARABIAN NIGHTS  

What was once a beautiful and romantic thought is now ominous!

The activities in the MENA (Middle East North Africa) region may be helpful in understanding what is occurring in the world of religion and societies’ attitude that is taking place in this region. MENA reflects all the uncomfortable confusion in this world in regard to Arabian thought.

With the world becoming smaller due to the east of communication, the United States shall not be able to have a “more perfect union” until the Arab community in the world is more balanced. Not only has ISIS raised its ugly head, there are multiple other groups that have also risen up. If a person is able to look at this intrusion on lives in a more understanding and informed way, they shall be more able to move to defuse the situation. If a person can look at this intrusion as a means to begin balancing societies in the 21st Century with a more wholesome attitude, this intrusion can be better understood and removed.

Recent events in the MENA region bring QATAR to the forefront in the news media. Qatar abuts Saudi Arabia to the northeast. Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Egypt cut ties with the wealthy country of Qatar on June 5, 2017, because Qatar funneled money to Islamic groups including the Muslim Brotherhood despite the fact that the air base is used for bombing by the United States. It is the headquarters of the United States Central Command. The Muslim Brotherhood is a Sunni Islamist organization founded in Egypt by the Islamic scholar Sheikh Hassan al-Banna in 1928. He referred to the Qur’an as a Constitution. In that case, the Qur’an would be a political ideology against the United States Constitution. According to this, as expressed in the previous post, the Qur’an, with its Shari’ah Law, is a political agenda and not a religion. 

Libya, Yemen, and the Maldives have also joined the diplomatic boycott of Qatar. FIFA, the Federation of International Football Association, which protects the integrity of football, is looking into the situation. The demands of the boycotting countries are closing of the al-Jazeera network, closing a Turkish military base, and scaling down ties to Iran with which Qatar is friendly, severing ties to Muslim Brotherhood and other groups including Iran’s Hezballah, al-Queda, and ISIS. The demands also include paying an unspecified sum of money for “loss of life and other financial losses caused by Qatar’s policies, and other demands. United States Secretary Tillerson asks that the demands be more reasonable. 

DOHA, the capital of QATAR, is positioned to hold the 2022 World Cup for football, also called soccer, Russia is holding the World Cup in 2018. The new Constitution in Qatar bans all racial discrimination on grounds of sex and race. However, there are allegations of inhumane treatment or punishment. Because of Muslim Shari’ah Law, police are reluctant to treat violence against women and family matters. Flogging continues to be imposed.

DARFUR CHILDREN REFUGEES  Darfur children in refugee camps have never set foot in their native Sudan.

DARFUR, SUDAN, which is sometimes considered North Africa and, therefore, part of MENA, in a media coverage on genocide, was given as an example of Arab racism toward non-Arabs within the broader Arab world. It must be viewed not solely as a case for Islamic Jihad but also a case of Arab racism and persistence of intra-Muslim ethnic conflicts in the region.

ZAGHAWAS FLEEING  In SUDAN, beginning in 1991, elders of the Zaghawa people complained they were victims of an intensifying Arab apartheid campaign and ethnic cleansing against non-Arabs in DAFUR. It is estimated that nearly twenty (20) million people were killed or ethnically cleansed. During the Second Sudanese Civil War, about 2.5 million people were killed in attacks widely regarded as racially motivated against black indigenous Africans.

Kamel_riahi  Kamel Riahi, of Tunisia, author of “Gorilla” and “Scalpel” (which have been translated in English) among other books,  and teacher stated “It might come as a surprise to you to learn that Negro was the term people were called by my black grandfather. I consider myself as someone of a Negro-descent although I am not black. We are racist to the bones. Attempting to hide or silence this fact will not help the matter because we are a sick society which still suffers from the complexes of color and race. We, the whites, will not be liberated until we liberate ourselves from the racist views we have of other races and religions.”

Some Arabs claim, because Islam’s founder Muhammad was the most perfect person to ever live, and because he was an Arab, then Arabs are the master race. It has been expressed that “Arabism is racism” and would be an interesting topic. Arab Muslim authors in “Arab-Iranian Relations” state “Much ink has flowed on the issue of Arab nationalism. Some people believe it to be a racist movement which advocates the superiority of the Arabs.”

The Arab situation is a religious quagmire (if the Qur’an can be considered a religion and not a political ideology) which does not equate to the Spiritual side of Mankind. Religious does not quite reach the plateau of being Spiritual…religion is by Man, or taught by Man, while Spiritual is a personal communication with God (or the energy of a higher source). The only hope is that Islamic terrorists do not take over the Islam religion or ideology. The Muslim people alone need to hone in on the situations taking place around the world by people who claim to be Islam but may only be a fragmentation of its religion. Activists would like to bring the United States into a racist society. The United States does not have a problem with racial inequities compared to other parts of the world as examined by this blog. There are laws in place in the United States…people need only to comply with these laws.

ALL TOGETHER NOW

 NOTE: There are 4 plug ins in this post that were not solicited by this blogger. Please ignore the double underlined words until I can understand how this occurred.

THE HUMAN RACE & RACIAL INEQUITIES-PART 8 -continued-

ISLAM

Religion has not been considered “racial”; however, it does cause genocide which is a “racial inequity”. To understand the situations that are taking place in the world regarding the global racial inequities, it is probably important to understand the philosophy of a religion; namely, Islam. One train of thought is that Islam may be more of a political system than a religion. This is due to Shari’ah Law which is connected to the Qur’an. Shari’ah Law within Islam may be considered an ideology and not a religion. It may not be compatible with human rights, freedom of thought, and women’s rights. If Islam is attempting to bring its philosophy into and part of the United States, how is it going to function in a democratic and pluralistic society which is the philosophy and political viewpoint of the United States of America. This is a situation that demands very close attention and direction.

CANING  Shari’ah Law of Islam was also originally called “The Way” or “The Path”. The Path is considered knowledge to wisdom. However, wisdom may defined in many ways and by many people. Shari’ah Law allows caning and stoning, etc. which constitutes torture and is prohibited in the United States. Adherence by Muslims to these laws do vary widely. Shari’ah Law or Islamic Law is a set of religious principles which form Islamic tradition. Islam’s legal system from the Qu’ran and Fatwa (Islamic law) are rulings of Islamic scholars. Are Muslims in the United States playing politics, and should the United States consider this while many in the United States are playing with political correctness?  STONING  

The following information about Islam may be helpful in understanding the position they take in the world: These links may not now be available. If not, Google “The Quran’s Verses of Violence – The Religion of Peace-Violence. One can also Google about the two different tribes of  Islam and how they were initiated.

See:  http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/pages/quran/violence-aspx  This is the Quran’s Verses of Violence – the Religion of Peace-Violence

Also see: http://www.peopleofoureverydaylife.com/two-different-tribes-islam-5776html

SUNNI  SUNNI TRIBE

There was a division in the Islam religion or philosophy which occurred in 632AD with the death of Mohammad who began his revelations in 610AD. The division occurred with the two (2) sons of Mohammad who had a disagreement. The one son founded the Sunni Tribe and the other founded the Shiite Tribe. Of interest is that Saddam Hussein was a Sunni who murdered Shiites. At one time, Shiite was pronounced s–t, and the pronunciation to Shia was changed because of this reference to an English word. ISIS represents the Sunni Tribe and Iran is predominantly Shiite. The Shah of Iran was overthrown in 1979 at which time the Persian Jews left for the United States. However, the situation of the bombing of the Parliament in Iran recently is a situation to ponder.

SHIITE  SHIITE TRIBE

Jihad is a believer’s internal struggle to live out the Muslim philosophy as well as possible…literally to struggle. The struggle could be spiritual (major) or armed (minor). The Qu’ran may seem to focus on a spiritual struggle but it could also be understood as an aggressiveness. The Qu’ran speaks, inasmuch, of chopping off hands and fingers, caning women, etc. See the internet above on violence.

In the treatise “The Larger Spiritual Order & Universal Scheme of Things-Simplified” – Chapter 4, the Islam philosophy is also discussed. Is the world experiencing Islamaphobia? Do parts of the United States and the world have a fear of Islam? Do not fear…endeavor to understand it, and in that vein, negate it for, if Islam includes political Shari’ah Law, it would not be compatible in the United States.

North Africa is mainly Arab and Muslim and they are considered Arab and not Black. Muslims are told happier days are considered “after death” and not “before death”. A visionary future for humans before the philosophy of Islam came into being was based on independence, equality, the creation of wealth, justice, and coexistence with other humans. Islamic males are now informed they can have dozens of virgin and female rewards in heaven, and the female can be the husband’s happy wife throughout eternity. Another dream they may have is going to the West. Another aspect of the dream may be living and dying in the West or controlling and destroying the West.  

ALGERIA’s racial tensions stem from religion. Being a Muslim or of the Islam philosophy gives a person a cleaner slate in this area. In the West, racial tensions stem mainly from skin color. However, with the Muslim philosophy building up in the United States, this philosophy may also become a tension there…especially if the Muslim with their religion or philosophy of Shari’ah Law are going to roam the streets in their different garbs whereby a person’s gender, who they are, etc. cannot be determined.

COPTS  EGYPT is the home of the Coptic religion which took a different position over Christology from the rest of the Christian Church in 451AD. It was established by St. Mark, an apostle, in 42AD. Part of the Gospel of John, written in Coptic, was found in Egypt and dated in the first half of the 2nd Century. There are about eighteen (18) million Coptic Orthodox Christians in the world. Between ten (10) and fourteen (14) million of them are found in Egypt under the jurisdiction of the Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria. There are also churches in Africa, Australia, Canada, France, Mexico, South America, United Kingdom, and the United States.

The Muslim invasion of Egypt took place in 639AD shortly after the death of Mohammad. Despite the political upheaval, the Egyptian population remained Christian. However, gradual conversions to Islam over the centuries had changed Egypt from a Christian to a largely Muslim country by the end of the Twelfth (12th) Century. Egypt’s Umayyad, who were rulers after Mohammad’s death, taxed Christians at a higher rate than Muslims which drove merchants towards Islam and undermined the economic base of the Coptic Church. Although the Coptic Church did not disappear, the tax policies made it difficult for the church to retain the Egyptian elites.

A 2010 New Year’s Eve attack by Islamic fundamentalists on the Coptic Orthodox Church in the City of Alexandria left twenty-one (21) dead and many more were injured. One week later, thousands of Muslims stood as human shields outside churches as Coptic Christians attended Christmas Masses on January 6 and 7, 2011. On January 30, 2011, Muslims broke into two (2) homes belonging to Coptic Christians and murdered eleven (11) people and wounded four (4) others. On February 22, 2011, in Cairo, Coptic Christians joined hands to provide a protective cordon around their Muslim neighbors. On March 17, 2012, Copts were worried, after their Pope died, about the Muslim Brotherhood who controlled Egypt after winning 70% of the parliamentary elections. The Pope had constantly met with Muslim leaders in order to create peace. On February 15, 2015, militants in Egypt claiming loyalty to the Da’ish militant group (ISH) released a video depicting the beheading of twenty-one (21) Coptic Christians. On December 11, 2016, a bomb exploded in a Coptic cathedral in Cairo killing twenty-five (25). On April 9, 2017, Palm Sunday, explosions at two (2) Coptic churches killed forty-five (45) people and injured more than one hundred (100).

Also in EGYPT, Black African immigrants often face physical violence and verbal abuse at the hands of the general public and law enforcement officials. Refugees from SUDAN are especially targeted with racial slurs like “oonga boonga” and “samara” (meaning Black). Black women are also targets of sexual harassment in defiance of human rights and non-discrimination on ethnic or racial grounds.

Humans, on a worldwide basis, are on a Spiritual and/or mystical mission in the 21st Century. Many unpleasant, uncomfortable, and negative events are being presented to create a Spiritual atmosphere for a person to rethink their belief system. The Universal (Heavenly) Hosts or Spirit Mentors are available for these “learning experiences”. The facts are available and judgment is not the root of consideration.

all-together-now

July’s blog shall continue with the MENA region’s racial inequities.

THE HUMAN RACE & RACIAL INEQUITIES – PART 8

THE MENA REGION OR THE MIDDLE EAST AND  NORTH AFRICA AS A WHOLE

MENA

MENA is the preferred term used to cover the Middle East and North Africa, and it extends from Morocco to Iran. Part of the region may also be located in West Africa. It is part of the African continent but has an Arabic culture.

The predominant countries that are a part of MENA are Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen. Sometimes included are Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Chad, Cyprus, Djibouti, Eritrea, Georgia, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Pakistan, the disputed Sahrawi Democratic Republic, Somalia, South Sudan, and Turkey. Also, the Canary Islands and the Island of Madera may be included.

The MENA region has been in a state of conflict since the Ottoman Empire but has reached its highest peak of conflict in the 21st Century. The reasons are the rise of terrorism, Iran-Saudi Arabia proxy conflict, the United States intervention in Iraq in 2003, the rise of ISIS, the “Arab Spring” which spread war to the entire region such as the Syrian War, Iraq War, Libyan Civil War, Yemeni Civil War, and the Israel-Palestine conflict.

PALESTINEThe Israel-Palestine conflict began after World War II when the United States and the United Kingdom gave the land known, at that time, as Palestine, to be shared by two (2) states; that is, Israel and Palestine. The United Kingdom had become the governing factor of the Palestinian land. Later, the United States loaned the United Kingdom money in this regard, and so became responsible for the area along with the United Kingdom. In 1948, it was deemed Israel and Palestine share the area as two (2) states. The United Nations had expressed that it be two states and had kept records of which party did the most positive for the area (such as opening up a business like an electric company, etc.)…which business minds and their ability to make money would make their area a more prosperous and democratic nation within the Middle East. Palestine was located toward the Mediterranean and Israel was located next to Syria. During a subsequent war, Israel took over the Left Bank of Syria and the Golen Heights. Since this time, there have been controversies as to who would get what areas as their country. President Trump is convinced he can negotiate a solution to this problem, and the two states can sign a multilateral agreement.

Racial inequities in the Arab world cover forms of intolerance against non-Arabs. This has caused the region to be called MENA. There are other combinations, but MENA is the predominant name. It comprises Africans, South Asians, Hispanics, and Germanics of the Middle East and North Africa. Not only are ethnic groups included but religious groups are also included in this world phenomenon of racial indifferences, misunderstandings, and denials of culture. Knowing the intricacies of countries involved assist a person to understand the workings that affect situations. Some of the ethnic and religious groups are; namely, Alawites, Armenians, Assyrians, Baha’is, Berbers, Copts, Druzes, Ibadis, Ismailis, Jews, Kurds, Maronites, Sahrawid, Tureq, Turkmen, Yazdid, and Zaidis. Also included in this article are Muslims and Moors.

See:  http://”Racism in the Arab World” – Wikipedia  

Serious discussion of ethnic/religious diversity and its place in society is a long-standing taboo in this area. If the existence of non-Arab or non-Muslim groups is acknowledged at all, it is usually only to declare how wonderfully everyone gets along. As expressed by Mona Eltahawy, a columnist for the NY Times, the racism she experienced in metropolitan Cairo  has an echo in the Arab world at large where the suffering in Darfur (see continuation of Part 8 in June) goes ignored because its victims are Black and because those who are creating the misery in Darfur are not Americans or Israelis, and we only pay attention when America and Israel behave badly. She stated, in Egypt (continued in June), as well as in the Arab world, there is a culture of silence toward racist incidents which reflects negatively on Arab society.

moorsMOORS are known for their cooped heads who also are sometimes referred to as “wreathed at the temple.” They are mixed Arab, Spanish, and Berber and are known to be Muslim who were located first in North Africa in the Atlas Mountains, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, and Libya. Morocco was part of Mauritania, at one time, and the Berber clans in this region were called Mauri which became Moor according to one source.            

 Berbers

BERBERS

Moors are descendant from Arab and Berber tribes due to intermarriage. The Berbers, also known as Haiks, came from Asia around 3,000 BC and are known to have lighter skin. Some Berber tribes who are known as Kayles had a brownish skin and are probably mixed with Asian. The Moors, even though black skinned, may be known as Arab and are not classified as Black. They later moved into the regions of Portugal, India, Italy, and Spain. To put two and two or three together, it is highly probable that the Moors, Bergers, and Aryan people are very closely related. There is a small Aryan group of people living in Iran.  See post dated October 17, 2014, and the treatise Chapters 1 and 3:

“The Larger Spiritual Order & Universal Scheme of Things-Simplified”

Muslims became well established in the 7th and 8th Centuries after the death of Mohammad, the author of the Qu’ran. They crossed the Strait of Gibraltar around 711 AD for the Spanish occupation. The Moors introduced new scientific techniques, geography, and philosophy to Spain. Over the next decades, Berbers and populations from North Africa gradually converted to Islam  Differences in religion led to century-long wars with the Christians in Europe. Chapters 3 and 4 of the treatise are about the journies of all major religions and how they connect.


As observed in past and present blogs which were written by this author, the region of the continent of Africa, including MENA, are very delicate in racial inequities both in religion and tribal heritage. Even though the intolerances and inequities of racial discrimination, both religious and in human/tribal characteristics, are worldwide, some of the regions of Africa and MENA have kept a low profile and have not been made known to the world as a whole, in general. Solutions may be discussed and brought to the attention of societies but some people refuse to comply with these solutions or do not want to correct them.

Part 8 shall be continued in the June blog. See you.

THE HUMAN RACE & RACIAL INEQUITIES-PART 7

WEST AFRICA

W AFRICA

The countries of West Africa include Benin, Burkina-Faso, Chad, Cape Verde (island), Gambia, Ghana, Guinea and Guinea-Bissar, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, St. Helene (island), Senegal, Sierra Leone, Sao Toma and Principe (islands), and Togo. The islands of Sao Toma and Principe are Democratic Republics and rich in oil, sugar, cocoa, among others. West Africa is bordered by the Sahara Desert which is shared by Central Africa.

SLAVE MKT 1860It was from West Africa that the slave trade to the Americas was conducted. The slave trade to Asian and Arab countries was conducted from East Africa. The tribal chiefs from both areas used slaves to conduct their business in Africa and also sold the slaves to traders from other lands. Consider the words of Dr. Ben Carson who recently stated the black people of the United States could actually be considered immigrants. They eventually became American citizens after the Civil War, and many people who fought in this war died for this great cause and should be respected, memorialized, and not forgotten.

THE “N” WORD

The “N” word came from the word “nig…”. It was a sacred word used by the ancient Egyptians who called their land “Khemet” or “The Black Land”. It stemmed from the Egyptian word “N-G-R” which had a reference to “God” and also could mean (Net-ger). The Egyptian language used no vowels. It originally referred to people with black skin. However, through time, it has lost its original meaning. Blacks in Egypt called their Pharaohs “En-ger” or N-g-r”. The original Pharaohs were pure Black Africans. For more on this subject, see: “The Original Meaning of the “N” Word” on the internet.

The Romans, who were speakers of Latin, always knew of Blacks…there were Blacks in Rome, Italy and had an ancient Black presence long before the Latins migrated from Central Asia and North Eastern Europe along with the “Aryan” migration. Negro means Black in Portuguese and Spanish whose people did migrate to Africa. The Latin term “Niger” became “Negara”. In the Latin dictionary, “Nigro” means black.

BOKO HARAM

BOKO HARAM, a terror group in West Africa, wants to destroy anything to do with Western culture, including the Christian religion. They continue armed conflicts into 2017 with human rights abuses and genocide. They became active in 2002 in the regions of CHAD, NIGER, NIGERIA, and North Cameroon (part of Central Africa) and have pledged allegiance to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Obama liked to refer to ISIL instead of ISIS. The “L” in ISIL is derived from the term Levant that refers to the area bounded by Turkey’s Taurus Mountains, the Mediterranean Sea West of the Arabian Desert in the North, Mesopotamia in the West, and the Sinai Peninsula. Levant comprises the al-Nusra Front (meaning “Rising Sun in the East”), another terror group operating in France, Germany, etc. region. The people are called Levantines who worship within the Latin Catholic religion which is Christian. ISIS would not have the area of the Levant as part of their Army since the majority are Christians, and ISIS is part of the Islam religion.

The area of ancient Mesopotamia is an area that encompasses mostly all of Iraq and parts of Turkey, Syria, Kuwait, and Iran. The Mesopotamia region was the home of the ancient race of the Assyrian people who shall not necessarily be considered Syrian; however, there are some people in Syria whose ancestors were Assyrian. Assyrians are Aramaic speaking Christians of the Middle East who have their own language, culture, and heritage. Jesus the Christ is said to have spoken the Aramaic language. Semites were nomadic and therefore lost or had no history or written records of their wanderings and past…this is why they used the Vedas for their history (and probably the Old Testament stories in the Bible). Semites were of the Sumerian race.

The Boko Haram group is considered the world’s deadliest terror group. In 2011, letters from Boko Haram were found in bin-Laden’s compound when it was seized. In 2014, it was known throughout the world that this group had captured 276 schoolgirls. In 2016, UNICEF announced the girls and women that were released faced rejection from much of their homes due to the stigma of sexual activity. Massacres and other atrocities like killing Catholics or Christians were Boko Haram’s means of terror and included using women as suicide bombers. They were never officially accepted by al-Qaeda but do have connections with al-Shabaab in East Africa. Boko Haram had feelers out to attack United States’ and United Kingdom’s embassies, but the plan has been averted. Also, recently, it has been learned that al-Qaeda and ISIS may unite.

LIBERIA enacted a constitution in 1984, and it can be considered having Racial Inequities in Article 27 because it does NOT allow whites to become Liberian citizens. Only persons who are Negroes or of Negro descent shall qualify by birth or by naturalization to be citizens of Liberia.

NIGER, Republic of, is the largest country in Africa inasmuch as size and was named after the Niger River. It has a Democratic society and is part of the Sahara Desert along with Nigeria. Nigeria is smaller in size but has the largest population in Africa. President Trump has sent aircraft to Niger to combat ISIS. These arrangements had been made by Obama in his administration.

NIGERIA HAUSA  A HAUSA FAMILY

NIGERIA, Republic of, has a people and territory known as Hausa Territories. Niger is the language which speaks to the “perfect blackness” of the pure Hausa…also called Hausaland. The people also live in other parts of Africa but are mainly in Niger and Nigeria. There are 42 million Hausa. The Hausa also have a festival called Durbar Festival which is in Nigeria.HAUSA DURBER FESTIVAL

The Republic of Mali is located mostly in the Sahara Desert and is the largest country in West Africa. The population is mostly of the Muslim faith. The above scripts were found among Timbuktu manuscripts from the Mali Empire. They are done in the Sudani language showing knowledge of astronomy and mathematics. There have been approximately a million manuscripts found in Timbuktu, Mali. There is a festival called “Masked Ceremonial Dogon” with dancers.

MAURITANIA, Republic of, is the 11th largest country in West Africa. There is a slavery issue there in that 4% of the population are enslaved against their will…especially enemies of the government.

In regard to Racial Inequities in the global picture, in addition to color and ethnic differences, there are Institutionalized Inequities by wealth, income, criminal justice, employment, housing, health care, political power and education…also Symbolic differences that are aimed at Blacks by some parts of society that infer that Blacks are morally inferior to Whites. These differences are not only INCORRECT but underscore differences that no longer have a meaningful reasoning. They do not assist societies to adopt an understanding that could equalize the differences.

History needs to be studied in order to develop a human conscious awareness of Racial Inequities. This could cause peoples’ uncomfortable remarks about racial identities to be powerless. There were also White slaves throughout the Planet Earth’s history. Therefore, white or black, yellow or brown color of humans has caused an ethnic discrimination toward people belonging to certain groups that share cultures, religion, and language. This is called The Human Race.

EAST AFRICA

E AFRICA FLAG  EAST AFRICA FLAG

The countries which participate in East Africa are Botswana, Djibouti (Horn of Africa), Egypt (may also be included in North Africa), Eritrea, Ethiopia (a Christian nation in the Horn of Africa), Kenya, Malagascar, Malawi (may be considered as South Africa & formerly Central Africa), Mozanbique, Somalia (Horn of Africa), Sudan (may be considered North Africa), South Sudan (broke away from Sudan), Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia (sometimes considered South Africa and formerly was Central Africa Federation), Zimbabwe (considered same as Zambia), Madagasgar is sometimes considered South Africa or East Africa, and Comoros, Mauritius, and Seychelles are East Africa but in the Indian Ocean. Madagasgar was at one time a continent known as Lemuria, but most of it fell into the ocean after some climate events, see: “The Larger Spiritual Order & Universal Scheme of Things-Simplified“, chapter 2,  a treatise authored by me.

East Africa is the area where it has been stated the first human or Homo Sapien appeared; however, some researchers suspect North Africa was instead the original place from which humans trekked out of the continent of Africa. Then there are thinkers who believe humans were manifested in ten (10) different locations of the Planet Earth. All in all, the human species has made its mark within the Planet Earth. East Africa is the site of Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Kenya, the two tallest peaks in Africa.

PYRAMIDS AS IN EGYPT & S AMERICA  EAST  AFRICA PYRAMIDS AS IN EGYPT & SOUTH AMERICA

The pyramids are a close resemblance to Egyptian pyramids. Fossils which were discovered in the Koobi Fora in Kenya, Olduvia Gorge in Tanzania, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, northern Somalia and the Red Sea coast of Sudan are considered the most likely location of the land known to the ancient Egyptians as Punt. The ancient Puntites were a nation of people that had close relations with the Pharaonic Egyptians who reigned from the 32nd Century BC to 332 BC. Their belief was in the divine.

The white population of East Africa is small compared to the black population; therefore, racial inequities of color are not as much of a problem as in South Africa (see the previous post). The majority of whites fled north from South Africa due to the change of government that is committing genocide and murdering the whites. Bloody assaults and murders occurring in Africa against whites are mainly occurring in South Africa alone.

The economy is a more problematic situation than the racial situations. Another problem which may be considered a racial inequity is genocide conducted by Al-shabaab. Al-shabaab is also known as Haakat-Al-shabaab al Muahideen. This Islamist military group poses a much larger problem. The name is Arabic for “The Youth” or “Youngsters”.  Al-shabaab is linked to al-Queda.

SYMBOL

This symbol used by Somalian-based Al-shabaab has the Koran’s holy book as its center theme.

SOMALIA is in conflict with neighboring states due to Al-shabaab’s Islamic identity. Somalia has clan divisions, but Al-shabaab wants to turn Somalia into a fundamentalist Islam state, and, therefore, attempts to mobilize the clans. They murder Somalian soldiers. Al-shabaab terrorists pose a threat to the United States also and can be considered a terrorist group. Somalia is a failed country with terrorism everywhere. Somalian clans have marched to Cape Town, South Africa to Parliament to protest against attacks. The terrorists are mostly of Islam religion and Sunni tribes.

SUDAN is on the ISIS list…South Sudan peacefully seceded from Sudan in 2011. Sudan has a university by the name of University of Medical Sciences & Technology (UMST). Until recently, the Islamic State has recruited students from Britain to this university. From the student body, twenty (20) young Britons were recruited by ISIS, but the recruiting has now been eradicated. It is almost one and one-half years since the last Briton went to fight in Syria. However, recently two (2) British students were killed in fighting in Iraq. Eighteen (18) United Kingdom medical students were studying at UMST before joining ISIS in Syria. Some have been killed while parents in the UK were attempting to get them out. The parents feel they may not have volunteered for fighting but thought the students were going to Syria to provide humanitarian medical aid. As high as forty (40) students, both men and women, may have joined ISIS. It is questionable if they can be rescued alive.

east_africa_longform_embedded_2  KENYA has a strong middle class and is making efforts to improve. There is a huge difference in the ratio of working men compared to working women; that is, there are more working men than women. Since the Mau Mau, a black terrorist organization, had an uprising or rebellion from 1952 to 1960 in revolt against British colonial policies, Kenya has enjoyed a stable government since their independence in 1963…although there are significant political and religious tensions resulting from the political union between Tanganyika and Zanzibar in 1964. Zanzibar is now part of Tanzania. The British government bought out the white settlers and mostly all whites have left Kenya. As a Republic, President Kenyatta became the first president. After an election fraud in 2007 by Muai Kibaki, Uburu Kenyata was elected president in 2013.

Rwanda, Uganda, and Burundi have each faced instability and ethnic conflict. In 1994, Rwandans had a genocide episode, and in 1991, Burundi had a genocide situation and a civil war. Rwanda and Uganda continue to be involved in related conflicts outside the region.

The world is in a humanitarian crisis, and these are critical times to Mankind. It would assist matters if the Preamble to the Constitution of the United States were read or reread by everyone. The Preamble to the Constitution should be read to redirect the priorities of Mankind. The words were meant to lead the world to peace and were given to the framers of the constitution through Spirit/God. The framers were highly spiritual people. The Constitution consists of divine words of wisdom meant for the world to assist in promoting peace for the good of Mankind.
