By Nesu Neb Ka Ra of Per Ankh Khamniversity

I am reaching out to those who share maatikal respect, integrity and loyalty for action initiatives to preserve, secure and honor our AfRaKan Nation-“at home and abroad” .  I share this as it is imperative that we must take some drastic measures to insure our place in our ancestral homelands before those claiming to be the present stewards give it all away to everyone else except their own…It is beyond time for an Atonement of our Ancestral Nations in Present Times-let’s live that level of transformation in 2012 and beyond.  Why wait?

We need to start somewhere and I think we need to begin with long-term lease agreements for land within the AfRaKan continents of a minimum of 50 to 100 years with arrangements that when funds become available permanent agreements may be established or outright transfers of sovereign lands with alliance relationships are to be instituted.  Cases and points that may surface include yet are not limited to the following:

  1. How did the African Hebrew Israelites acquire or gain access to land in occupied Palestine-Israel? Did the Israeli government grant them sovereign land?
  2. How did the Akwamu-Ashanti-Akan Nation make land available to Africans of the Diaspora?
  3. How did Ethiopia make land available to the Rastafarians? 
  4. How did land in Liberia get transferred to Diasporan African American settlers? 
  5. Why should Diasporan Africans be denied their rights to the land of their ancestry if they are considered to be part of the AU’s Sixth Region?
  6. How can Diasporan Africans meet certain criteria of sovereignty to be able to freely and independently conduct and perform matters of state and national affairs if they do not have some land that can be identified as sovereign land for comparable recognition as equal sovereign nations like other AU members?

One of the main reasons why we continue to lag behind with African affairs is because we AfRaKans in the Diaspora are collectively too passive and complacent on such matters-especially in regards to repatriation, reparation and related issues…From the days of  the Honorable Marcus Garvey and those of the Noble Rev. Dr. Edward Wilmot Blyden as well as other African visionaries, it has been more than a century of discussions, summits and plans of repatriation.  Our situation in the diaspora has gotten worse when it comes to controlling the land and resources of our ancestral homelands.  As AfRaKan Diasporans collectively, collaboratively and assertively secure access to lands in Africa FIRST,  then engaging in international negotiations and resolution summits with world powers like the US and others about assistance to go home may actually be respected.  If we do not secure land first, then the private corporations will continue to use African nations and the AU as they are presently doing to keep us from returning home in a quantitative and qualitative manner. 

AfRaKan Diasporans have a right to present, discuss and recommend solutions on these matters to AU representatives-preferably the full body in a logical and diplomatic manner.  Many are asking why are attempts being made to be a part of an organizational entity that appears to be creating institutional barriers and criteria to bar AfRaKan Diasporans from participating in the development and future of our ancestral homelands.   Many have assertively stated that AfRaKan Diasporans should not and do not have to beg the AU or any other colonial modern state country in Africa to return home-especially in light of the TransAtlantic Enslavement Maangamizi.  While criteria and protocols are being arranged and established for AfRaKan Diasporan involvement in the AU- the only criteria that the big multinational capitalist-imperialist corporations and members of the big 8 industrial nations need to have is financial power that has permitted them to do what they desire in Africa-to a point.  While the status quo negotiations for AfRaKan Diasporans to engage with the AU are in process via the SRDC initiatives, many are asserting the implementation of simultaneous negotiations for other methods of achieving the same goals of African Unity and secure institutional re-establishment of a New African World Union. 

Inquiries and concerns that have been raised include yet are not limited to the following:

  1. Most African nations have allowed the borders of their colonial state countries to remain as dividing factors based on the exploiting colonial nations that divided Africa in 1884 during the Berlin Conference.  Modifications in this regard along ethnic and national lines are necessary.
  2. Pan Arab interests via some of the “North African” countries determine the select destiny of Africa, but the AU member states that are not Pan Arabists are not seated at the table to determine the fate of the Pan Arab world.  This lack of reciprocity in AfRaKan affairs is an historical concern.
  3. While our AfRaKan ancestral homelands are being taken, exploited and profited from by the pirates and criminals of the planet, AfRaKan Diasporans have been engaged in a host of bureaucratic processes just in order to sit at the table that others are afforded so freely.  This must change.
  4. Ethnic Kingdoms in Ghana have made efforts to make land available to AfRaKan Diasporans to repatriate.  While this has been an impressive and aggressive movement to many, their have been questionable areas raised inclusive of the lack of foundation of most names for Indigenous Ancestral People of “Africa” that tend to ignore the names or claims in our historical realities like others of our AfRaKan Ancestral Nations such as Israel, Nation of Islam, Britain, Spain, Saudi Arabia etc.  Another area to heal, repair and ascend beyond!
  5. Many AfRaKan Diasporans have been in exile-forcefully, willingly and desirous of never returning to the East.   Many remained in the continent and were charged with the responsibility to protect and safeguard it.  This is another area of our heritage restoration.
  6.  Many neglect to remember that some of our ancestors were sold for capital gain by the ancestors of some of these same countries and nations who now desire to use us as financial slaves even on our return to our indigenous lands in the 21st century.
  7. Many have allowed every invader to come to Africa’s shores and lands to plunder its’ treasures of riches and resources while murdering, enslaving, colonizing, and mentally indoctrinating its’ most precious resources: Our Indigenous  AfRaKan Black People.  We must shift the paradigm!

…We AfRaKans in the Diaspora are in a unique situation.  We are still suffering from the after effects of 500+ years of captivity, enslavement, indoctrination and miseducation, and are hated by the western supremacist institutionalized system and its’ architects that enslaved us.  We do not have a nation or country that we can say is our nation of sovereignty that was designed and formulated by our people and for our people-that the world powers respect, recognize and honor.  In Africa, we do not have land or a nation that we can say is ours for our return home- UNLESS we have the financial capital, resources and means to “buy those rights”.  So, where should we turn and what must we do?  I say when one has a problem one must face the problem and begin to solve the problem by studying the problem from its known variables and apply the proper operations, and logical methods and principles to find the hidden answer in the variables and elements of the problem.  We are destined by Divine Right and Order to do something and turn this situation around and transform this mentality of listening to those that do not in essence have our well being at heart.

Hotep:

The power of media and propaganda that are designed to keep our people in a reactive state in contrast to a proactive state of engagement and existence is evidenced in the “pumped up” media threats of treasures of Ancestral AfRaKan homelands in Mali, Egypt and abroad.  …More to share…

This is an excerpt of a commentary shared regarding an article that was e-blasted into the Internet in an attempt to mislead the global community of the host of enemies vying for, exploiting and carving up AfRaKa yet once again.

Silence to acts and destructive threats to sacred spaces and histories like this in Timbuktu, Egypt and beyond is unacceptable. Share your solutions and recommendations to save, secure, protect, conserve and preserve our sacred and sovereign treasures that remain beneficial to the civilizations of AfRaKa, the Amerikas inclusive of the Caribbean and all of humanity.  Heal. Organize. Unite. Liberate. Ascend. Those that dishonor ancestral spirit will reap what they have sown for generations upon generations. We are coming together.  What are we doing? Forward ever.

“Culture heals humanity; Land is our foundation; Spiritual harmony unifies us for Iternity.” Anyone who destroys or participates in the desecration of ancestral and ancient treasures, artifacts, books and the sacred teachings of ALL OF HUMANITY.  This must stop.  While the ostentatious cripples, predators and evildoers with no regard for humanity attempt and plan to wipe out the REAL LIVING PROOF of OUR Ancestral Sacred Sovereign LEGACY- it is time to take action as One Voice One People One Spirit.  While some call to destroy Great Monuments in Timbuktu, the Great Pyramids and many others that are not even made aware to humanity publically- It is time to shift the paradigm with UNITY, LIBERATION, HEALING of OUR SOCIAL ASCENSION.  We are one and if one portion of the Great Pyramids are touched to destroy our human history artifacts as intended- the wrath of Our Most High Mother Father of Creation is intervening with Spiritual & Physical Warriors ready to serve in securing our HUMANITY.   Real Muslims and people of Islam who live in “Peace” do not live to destroy the history and sacred spaces of others.  A sharing by a Chief Elder this morning on this matter to the intended destroyers of Our Sacred Sovereign Maatikratic Nation of Smai Tawi: “Most of you in 21st century Egypt are not the people who have the right or the authority to do anything to Our AfRaKan Nubianu Kshianu Khamitu Herutage ancestral legacy in KMT.  In nomadic movements, most of you met these ancestral artifacts in these lands you ignorantly regard as “pagan”.  Do you recall what “pagan” means?  Be of peace as you speak instead of vile destructiveness that you act out with an immaturity that is disrespectful to the Most High Almighty Creator.”  What if acts were taken to destroy Mecca and the human histories from there?  We have to work for the restoration of SMAI TAWI.  Weak people without respect for ancestral traditions they are ignorant of are quick to destroy sacred spaces and artifacts that DO NOT BELONG TO THEM…The Salafi party and others do not have the ancestral, human or any rights whatsoever to destroy or even threaten to destroy what they ignorantly refer to as symbols of paganism.  If the tourist product that the United Arab Republic/Egypt -KMT was really their home of origin they would never even think to destroy the histories that made their religion, humanity and very existence possible.   This is totally unacceptable and actions must be taken NOW!  HANDS OFF Mali’s treasures of Timbuktu!   HANDS OFF Ancestral Treasures of KMT, Nubia Kush along the ENTIRE Nile/Hapi Valley Civilization!  HANDS OFF AFRAKA! 

 

Here is the article that promoted the abovementioned comments and that along with others has been launched to misguide the global community from other violations against the rights of humanity by selected world powers and to not shed the light on the positive efforts for Global African Diasporan Unity that is being forged despite these obstacles and institutionally racist and exploitative distractions against our humanity.

 

Calls to Destroy Egypt’s Great Pyramids Begin

by Raymond Ibrahim

FrontPage Magazine ( A source of propaganda that creates more infighting than unity in our homelands)

July 10, 2012 

http://frontpagemag.com/2012/raymond-ibrahim/muslim-brotherhood-destroy-the-pyramids/

 

According to several reports in the Arabic media, prominent Muslim clerics have begun to call for the demolition of Egypt’s Great Pyramids—or, in the words of Saudi Sheikh Ali bin Said al-Rabi’i, those “symbols of paganism,” which Egypt’s Salafi party has long planned to cover with wax. Most recently, Bahrain’s “Sheikh of Sunni Sheikhs” and President of National Unity, Abd al-Latif al-Mahmoud, called on Egypt’s new president, Muhammad Morsi, to “destroy the Pyramids and accomplish what Amr bin al-As could not.”

 

Has the sun finally set for Egypt’s Great Pyramids?

This is a reference to the Muslim Prophet Muhammad’s companion, Amr bin al-As and his Arabian tribesmen, who invaded and conquered Egypt circa 641. Under al-As and subsequent Muslim rule, many Egyptian antiquities were destroyed as relics of infidelity. While most Western academics argue otherwise, according to early Muslim writers, the great Library of Alexandria itself—deemed a repository of pagan knowledge contradicting the Koran—was destroyed under bin al-As’s reign and in compliance with Caliph Omar’s command.

 

However, while book-burning was a simple process in the 7th century, destroying the mountain-like pyramids and their guardian Sphinx was not—even though many early Muslim leaders certainly tried; by the time gunfire was invented, Egypt’s Medieval Mamluk rulers even managed to “de-nose” the Sphinx during target practice (though popular legend naturally attributes it to a Westerner, Napoleon).

Now, however, as Bahrain’s “Sheikh of Sheikhs” observes, and thanks to modern technology, the pyramids can be destroyed. The only question left is whether Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood president is “pious” enough—if he is willing to complete the Islamization process that started under the hands of Egypt’s first Islamic conqueror.

 

Nor is such a course of action implausible. History is laden with examples of Muslims destroying their own pre-Islamic heritage—starting with Muhammad himself, who ransacked Arabia’s Ka’ba temple, transforming it into a mosque.

 

Asking “What is it about Islam that so often turns its adherents against their own patrimony?” Daniel Pipes provides several examples, from Medieval Muslims in India destroying their forefathers’ temples, to contemporary Muslims destroying their ancestors’ heritage in Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Malaysia, and Tunisia. Currently, in what the International Criminal Court is describing as a possible “war crime,” Islamic fanatics are destroying the ancient legacy of the city of Timbuktu in Mali—all to Islam’s triumphant war cry, “Allahu Akbar!”

 

Much of this hate for their own pre-Islamic heritage is tied to the fact that, traditionally, Muslims do not identify with this or that nation, culture, or language, but only with the Islamic nation—the Umma. Accordingly, while many Egyptians—Muslims and non-Muslims alike—see themselves first and foremost as Egyptians, Islamists have no national identity, identifying only with Islam’s “culture,” based on the “sunna” of the prophet and Islam’s language, Arabic. This sentiment was clearly reflected when the former leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, Muhammad Akef, recently declared “the hell with Egypt,” indicating that the interests of his country are secondary to Islam’s.

 

It is further telling that such calls are being made now—immediately after a Muslim Brotherhood member became Egypt’s president. In fact, the same reports discussing the call to demolish the last of the Seven Wonders of the Word, also note that Egyptian Salafis are calling on Morsi to banish all Shias and Baha’is from Egypt.

 

In other words, Morsi’s recent call to release the Blind Sheikh, a terrorist mastermind, from U.S. imprisonment, may be the tip of the iceberg in coming audacity. From calls to legalize Islamic sex-slave marriage to calls to institute “morality police” to calls to destroy Egypt’s mountain-like monuments, under Muslim Brotherhood tutelage, the bottle has been uncorked, and the genie unleashed in Egypt.

Will all those international institutions, which make it a point to look the other way whenever human rights abuses are committed by Muslims, lest they appear “Islamophobic,” at least take note now that the Great Pyramids appear to be next on Islam’s hit list, or will the fact that Muslims are involved silence them once again—even as those most ancient symbols of human civilization are pummeled to the ground?
