Unveiling the treasure of the Lost Temple

27 February, 2011

In December last year Israel’s daily Haaretz reported on a visit of Yoel Siegel, an economic consultant who works for Israel’s Foreign Ministery and Eran Brokovich, a marine biologist from the NGO Worldfish to the island of Malaita in Solomon Islands. The article reports the following:

Siegel was the main moderator of a 10-day economic development conference held in early November in Auki, the capital of Malaita, the largest province in the tiny Pacific nation of Solomon Islands. The purpose of the event was to discuss and turn into concrete policies Malaitan ideas regarding economic development, in the form of a Malaita Economic Stimulus Package document.

More than 50 people attended the conference, among them members of the provincial government’s cabinet, local chieftains and government figures, including members of the opposition, who arrived from Solomon Islands’ capital of Honiara.

Support for Israel runs deep in the predominantly Christian Malaita. Many islanders believe that “those who bless Israel are themselves blessed,” in keeping with the Hebrew Bible. Some even believe that Israelites originally settled in the islands, thousands of years ago. People wear Star of David necklaces on the streets of Auki, and local residents assert that they “believe in Israel.” Israeli videos were screened over and over during the conference. When Siegel and Brokovich were taken on an outing, they traveled through jungles and saw villages decked out in blue and white with Israeli flags flying. In the welcoming ceremonies, children sang in Hebrew.

What is happening here? While the delegation from Israel came to Malaita to talk about development, many in the region were more engaged in expressing their belief in Israel. Normally development efforts, apart from being rare, are usually not greeted with much enthusiasm in this part of the Pacific because people know that at the end of the day nothing much will change because most of the funds end up in the pockets of administrators, leaders, and consultants. Apart from the question why Israel is interested working on development of Malaita, it is interesting to figure out what is happening in the local worlds since Israel is making inroads in their region. It is not unusual for Christians in the Pacific to attach great value to Israel as the (holy) land where Jesus was born and lived and which is the site of much of the events in the Old Testament. Yet to sing in Hebrew, to wave flags of Israel and to suggest, as I discuss below, that Malaitans are a Lost Tribe of Israel is less usual. And from an applied anthropology perspective, will, if Malaitan expectations about Israel are so deeply rooted in religious beliefs, a development effort by Israel proof to be more successful than, let’s say, by the World Bank? I will not answer that question below but ponder it and perhaps return to it later on Culture Matters.

In particular among the people of North Malaita, a widespread evangelical kind of ethno-theology alludes to the widespread idea that Malaitans are descendants of biblical kings, brought on the Ark to the Pacific, and continued to practise pure worship of God. Many also believe that the Lost Temple of Israel lies hidden at a shrine in the mountainous interior of their island where people used to worship ancestors. Moreover people suggest that the Bible imbues people with important roles in relation to “the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8). As Acts 1:8 includes Solomon Islanders in the Scripture and its sequence of events, this evokes a sense of urgency: Now that the word of God has reached the ends of the earth, things have to turn full circle.

Many can narrate how their ancestors travelled in canoes to the Pacific, people claim to have found Hebrew inscriptions on stones in the mountains, are sure that the Ark of the Covenant and the Lost Temple of Jerusalem are buried at certain locations in the mountains of Malaita and suggest to be able to provide letters from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem affirming recognition as Jews by Israel. They feel that they are currently living among Pharaohs, and recount stories of Israeli soldiers hiding in the mountains readying people for a liberation struggle. People also use the flag of Israel which they hang in churches, fly on roof-tops, and unfold during politically significant gatherings, such as during the peace ceremony in the provincial capital in Auki, in August 2003, which ritually concluded a regional conflict that began in 1998. During the ceremony Malaitan Eagle Force (MEF) commander Jimmy “Rasta” Lusibaea was the first to surrender his machine gun and a battle jacket that he wore whilst fighting rival militias from the island of Guadalcanal. Following Rasta, heavily-armed militants turned out in camouflage face paint, soldiers’ helmets and red bandanas to hand over an impressive haul of military firepower for destruction by soldiers of the Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands (RAMSI). Some refused to surrender to foreign forces and marched to the ceremony under the flag of Israel.

Besides its quite prominent materiality in the form of extensively using the flag of Israel people have produced a documentary film in 2004. The film asserts a verisimilitude between an ancestral shrine and the Temple in the Old Testament and speaks to an international audience while engaging in local disputes.

Critical elements of the new ethno-theology in North Malaita revolve around descendants of biblical kings who allegedly discovered Malaita, brought along the Ark, and continued to practise pure worship of God in this part of the Pacific. One of the shrines where pure worship of God allegedly took place is claimed by some to be the Lost Temple. Mimicking Old Testament meanings of the Ark for the Israelites wandering in the desert and the importance of the Temple as Israel’s first assertion of national identity, many in the movement consider the shrines on their land to be of utmost importance. Pushing the link between Malaita and Israel even further, a rabbi, a prophet and a filmmaker, produced a documentary film.

Cover of the documentary entitled the Discovery of the Lost Temple as sold at a shop below Auki Motel, Auki, Malaita in 2005 and 2006. According to the producer there will be no Part Two.

The film asserts that the verisimilitude between the shrine and the Lost Temple points to the claim that the treasures of the Temple are not in Israel but on Malaita. This claim is locally controversial for two reasons. First, it frustrates those who adhere to mainstream Churches because the temple story is often put forward to elevate local traditions and undermine missionary Christianity (and the related Roman Catholic and Anglican churches). Missionary Christianity is often associated with the British colonial government, European superiority, and Western normative systems that are believed to have disrupted social life and corrupted governance in Solomon Islands. The film suggests that Malaitans are a people chosen by God to fulfil prophecies such as Isaiah’s; that sons from afar will gather in Jerusalem at the end of time to share in the wealth, prosperity and justice of the Kingdom of God. As such, Solomon Islanders do no longer depend on white man’s Christian terms to get to Jerusalem. They could shortcut, as it were, the road to Jerusalem by taking out this critical centre of Christian faith from missionary Christian doctrine and positioning it in their own kastom (‘custom’).

Second, the claim to have found a temple of such significance on one’s land evokes disputes about territory. On Malaita, there is an intrusive tension between local landowners and the government and commercial agencies who wish to access land for development and infrastructure. This leads to a variety of disputes among landowners. Moreover, the claim hardly passes unnoticed due to the related attempts of the discoverers to establish themselves as charismatic leaders. The location of the Temple and its meaning was revealed first to Frank Daifa (of A’ama and Fo’ondo, and ‘discovery mission leader’), who thereupon began to excavate the shrine at a mountain behind his village of Fo’ondo. A few years later he met Anisi Maeta’a (of Central Kwara’ae and ‘discovery mission assistant’) in Auki who told him that a number of revelations had assured him that he was a rabbi. He was now seeking a way to shape this new identity. They also try to attract tour operators, tourists, official visitors from Israel, and the occasional anthropologist, which may lead to jealousy. Others would suggest that if it is true that they found the temple, the powerful Ark of the Covenant might fall in their hands. This fear should be situated in a context in which many believe that in pre-Christian times people piously believed in God, prayed to God and that God dwelled among the people. That those bygone times are detailed in the Old Testament is an observation held by many.

The film features short introductions by the two discoverers; Daifa and Anisi Maeta’a. They both list the names of their Israeli ancestors and descendants who came to Malaita. This is followed by a suspenseful narration of their discovery and it shows the excavated temple. Daifa leads the viewer through the site and explains the usages of the different parts of the temple. At this stage a graphical figure of the layout of the temple is shown. It is obviously based on the reading of 1 Kings 6:15 et seq.. The tabernacle consists of three parts of which the shrine and the Holy of Holies are the most important. Next Daifa explains while standing beside the so-called Stone Chart: “The cuts in the stone mark the location of treasures. The landscape of the whole island is engraved in the stone.”

Next, he takes the viewers to the Women’s Seat or Women’s Court and shows the remains of the First Altar in the Inner Court, the entrance of the Holy of Holies, the Altar of incense in the Holy of Holies, the entrance of the Inner Court and finally the Quarry. Then the film shows a prayer gathering at the site. Some twenty people are present, many of them wearing white robes. A ukulele player accompanies the signing of hymns. Daifa leads the service and in his sermon he urges the twelve language groups of Malaita to pray for their God-given role in the restoration of Israel to where the people of Malaita will go to see where they came from. This sermon tells that the unearthed Temple should provide the basis for a restoration of the world in terms of God dwelling among the people again.

Daifa, wearing a white robe, explains that:

The 14th day of October [2000] is a day to remember. People from Kwaio, Fataleka, Kwara’ae and To’abaita have come together to make this day happening. We are hopeful that one day everybody [all twelve tribes of Malaita] will recognise that this is the place of worship of our ancestors who devoted their prayers to God. Why here?

Isaiah 60: 8-9 says, “Who are these who fly like a cloud. And like the doves to their lattice. Surely, the Coastland will wait Me. And the ships of Tarshish will come first. To bring your sons from afar, their silver and gold with them. For the name of the Lord your God. And for the Holy One of Israel because He has glorified you”.

In Isaiah’s vision, he saw something coming from the sky, coming back. He also saw a plane. This vision is about something he has been praying for a long a time. His vision is that all the people of Israel will go back to their homeland. This is happening. One man from England, Ballford, made a declaration. This declaration makes Israel into a nation again and all its people will return. But the problem is that until today they are in a war.

Then, abruptly, radically different footage is inserted and brings to the viewer fragments of a Christian World News item on the situation in Jerusalem following the fall of Israel’s government in September 2000. It discusses the ongoing talks about free access for all faiths to the Temple Mount and features an interview with the then Mayor of Jerusalem Ehud Olmert. Olmert says that he is trying to open up the Temple Mount so that people from all faiths can visit it. Next the film goes back to the prayer session at the temple site and Daifa continues:

They are all there. And I think they will in live peace. We carry a responsibility. This is told in Isaiah 60:9. All the ships and planes will bring us back. We must wait for God. Why? Because [of the] power and glory which our ancestor brought to this place. We must try to elevate this before we can return it to where our ancestors came from.

Then back to Ehud Olmert:

We are praying every day that God will soon come again to rebuild the Temple Mount and rebuild the temple that is the site of all the dreams and all the prayers of Jewish history for thousands of years.

And, finally, Daifa:

If we look at this Temple here we see nothing else than stones. But the power and glory is in your hearts and you must take time for God. For the formula for power and glory is here, that is why the Temple is here. I am telling you that this formula, the only one, is the order of worship as explained in the Old Testament. These are the Ten Commandments. The first one is about love and unity.

It is clear that the documentary is an attempt by Daifa and Matea’a to reassert a widely accepted reality with a thrilling story of discovery and pieces from Christian World News. The documentary is the first in its genre as there is no Solomon Islands documentary-making tradition or popular cinema yet. Eddi B. Bibimauri who lives in Auki, Malaita, produced the Lost Temple documentary. Bibimauri is an early associate of Michael Maeliau, the leader of the so-called Deep Sea Canoe Movement that has been active in the region since the early 1990s. At the time he produced the film he was no longer a follower of the movement but sympathised with Daifa’s quest to find the Lost Temple.  Daifa was also a follower of the Deep Sea Canoe but his motivation for making the film is to compete with Maeliau by claiming more authority as discoverer of the Lost Temple. Maeliau had, according to Daifa, been speculating about the possibility of the Lost Temple being buried in the mountains of Malaita, but had never ventured into this powerful domain.

When I questioned him about this he replied, “He was too busy with his own status, money and travelling abroad that he forgot about the tribal history of Malaita.” “Is that all?,” I asked. “No,” Daifa replied,

Michael also can’t claim any land rights here, so he has no basis for claiming the pieces of land that may possibly hold the Lost Temple, so he did not dare to dwell on this any further. But I did and I found it, I did, but not many believe me (Interview with Frank Daifa, Fo’ondo Village, 5 February 2006).

During interviews with me, Daifa regularly insisted that Maeliau, by virtue of his descent, has no grounds to claim narrative or genealogical precedence over tracts of land where the Lost Temple and other important sacred shrines are located. Daifa’s attempt to site the Ark of the Covenant in his tribal land (which is ironically also under dispute) was inspired by the idea that it would make him a respected and famed person and that riches would flow towards him.

In contrast to Daifa’s and Maeta’a’s beliefs, Bibimauri told me that the meaning of the Lost Temple film is not so much about a claim that the First Temple of Israel is on Malaita, rather than in the Holy Land. Instead, it is about Malaita’s lost relationship with God and with the nation of Israel. Bibimauri believes that the end of time is about to happen and that therefore the time is right to take seriously such signs as the discovery of the Lost Temple. We may wonder what this bodes for the way in which people are going to participate in development efforts stimulated by the Israelis.

    Connections with Israel, usually through identification with “Benjamin’s tribe” aka “the Lost Tribe of Israel” is common to many places in Melanesia; see Dundon, Alison(2011) ‘DNA, Israel and the Ancestors—Substantiating Connections through Christianity in Papua New Guinea’, The Asia Pacific Journal of Anthropology, 12: 1, 29 — 43 for an analysis of the same thing in Western Province of PNG.

    This link is tragically important as with our people of interior Kwara’ae of Malaita Province in particular the Manadari & Ulakwai tribes I think the story is also quite clear, holds it clear as well of what Murphy is pointing out.

    Find out should you interest to do so, folks are there to help you out on this particular subject up the mountains

    This is an interesting documemtary from an anthropological viewpoint and may illustrate certain world views and their proponents. It certainly holds beliefs that may not necessarily be of those mentioned as in the case of Rev. Michael Maeli’au. The Rev. Michael Maelia’u is the son of evangelical Christians with a Bachelor of Arts degree in New Testament Studies and certificates and diplomas in evangelical theology. His message is one of the pre-eminence of Jesus Christ, the Way, the Truth and the Life. Between 1984 and 1986 the Lord showed him visions of a world united and changed through dedicated and committed prayer that involves Worship (the Tabernacle of David), Leadership (the Throne of David) and Stewardship (the Treasury of David). For over 28 years much of the vision was fulfilled through prayer assemblies throughout the Pacific Region which is now contributing to the international prayer movement like the IPC and GDOP and other prayer movements around the world. Taken out of context as in this article some of what Rev. Michael Maeli’au has said may run contrary to other people’s theological interpretation, but the message of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God is the major theme in this Prayer Movement (APPA) and has nothing to do with shrines and altars in the interior of Malaita (even if they exist) or any connection with the Jews (and no one has disproved this), except that Jesus was a Jew whom through the gospel of the Kingdom, Gentiles can now participate. If it can be proven that Malaitans are Jews, it does not take away the fact that they still need to be saved through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ. The two must not be confused under any circumstances. Since the World Prayer Assembly in Jarkata, the Prayer Movements in the World including the All Peoples Prayer Assembly (APPA) are gearing up for the New Wave of the Glory of the Lord. See the IPC website for details. Any stories or fabrications of the move of God through the Rev. Michael Maeli’au to discredit this man of God and the ministry entrusted to him is uncalled for and unnecessary.

    Thank you and God Bless

    Very interesting, I dont know can some anthropology come and visit a place in Fiji which is known as ” Nacuvacuva vei Jiova” Fijians too claimed that their ancestors also worship Jehovah in this place. The name of the place translate as ” to bow down to Jehovah” It is in the interior of Viti Levu boarder between Lutu and Nasautoka.

    TRUE ISRAELITES ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE WERE BLACK PEOPLE
    Exodus 2 verse 19:

    “And they said, An Egyptian (Moses) delivered us out of the hand of the shepherds, and also drew water enough for us, and watered the flock.”

    Directly and indirectly, the following verses reveal the visual appearance of the Biblical Israelites:

    Lamentations 4 verse 8:
    “Their visage is blacker than a coal.”

    Lamentations 5 verse 10:
    “our skin was black like an oven.”

    Job 30 verse 30:
    “My skin is black upon me.”

    Jeremiah 14 verse 2:
    “Judah mourneth, and the gates thereof languish, they are black unto the ground.”

    Song of Solomon 1 verse 5, 6:
    “I am black, but comely, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, as the tents of Kedar, as the curtains of Solomon. Look not upon me because I am black.”

    The Khazars and other heathen leaders have deliberately concealed the identity of the true Israelites from the world, through conspiracy:

    Psalms 83 verse 4-12:
    “They have said, come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee… Who said, Let us take the house of the Lord in possession.”

    The Israelite nation consisted of twelve tribes . In 975 BC, shortly after the death of King Solomon, the kingdom was split into two parts. The one part was called Judah (Judea), and it consisted primarily of three tribes: Judah, Benjamin, and Levi. The other division was called Israel, the bulk of which consisted of the remaining tribes: Reuben, Gad, Asher, Napthali, Manasseh, Simeon, Issachar, Dan, Zebulon and Ephraim. In BC 721 the king of Assyria carried Israel away into captivity, and it seemed to have been lost from history ever since.

    Many myths have developed as to the whereabouts of the ten tribes. But the reality is that they were not heard from because they had migrated primarily to the Western Hemisphere and settled in North, South, and Central America. This fact is documented in the Apocrypha << Second Esdras 13:39-49 >>, in the Book of Mormons, and also in James Adair’s History of the American Indians, and several other sources!

    In the Bible Apocrypha, it is documented specifically how ten of the twelve tribes of Israel (the indigenous American-Indians) got from the Middle East to the Americas.

    Apocrypha, Second Esdras 13 verse 39-48: “And whereas thou sawest that he gathered another peaceable multitude unto him; Those are the ten tribes, which were carried away prisoners out of their own land in the time of Osea the king, whom Salmanasar the king of Assyria led away captive, and carried them over the waters, and so came they to another land.”

    “But they took this counsel among themselves, that they would leave the multitude of the heathen, and go forth into a further country, where never mankind dwelt (North, South, and Central America), that they might there keep their statutes, which they never kept in their own land.”

    “And they entered into Euphrates by the narrow passages of the river. For the Most High then showed signs for them, and held still the flood, till they were passed over. For through that country there was a great way to go (across the ocean), namely, of a year and a half: and the same region is called Arsareth. Then dwelt they there (The Americas) until the latter time (Our time today); and now when they shall begin to come (after the Coming of the Messiah!) …But those that be left behind of thy people (the tribes of Judah, Benjamin, and Levi) are they that are found within my borders.”

    The blessings of the tribe of Gad indicate North America and Canada as places where a major group of Israelites will be found!

    Genesis 49 verse 19:
    “Gad, a troop shall overcome him: but he shall overcome at the last.”

    The troop referred to is the U.S. Cavalry. The U.S. Calvary was used to commit terrorism, slaughter, and genocide against the indigenous North American-Indians!

    Deuteronomy 33 verse 20:
    “And of Gad he said, Blessed be he that enlargeth Gad: he dwelleth as a lion, and he teareth the arm with the crown of the head.”

    The American Indians lived close to the earth as hunters and warriors, as a lion. This action of tearing the arm refers to the Blood Brother ritual of the indigenous American-Indians, where the two people make a small cut in their arms and then bring the two cuts together to become blood brothers. The crown of the head refers to the bonnet with feathers, often worn by the indigenous American-Indians!

    The Seminole American-Indians maintain Biblical custom by wearing turbans, and fringes:

    Deuteronomy 22 verse 12:
    “Thou shalt make thee fringes upon the quarters of thy vesture, wherewith thou coverest thyself.”

    The wearing of fringes has always been an important Israelite custom. In addition, the Seminole American-Indians, the Navaho, and other American-Indians have a lot of Hebrew words in their languages. In fact, when the Europeans came to America, they found the Indian languages to be dialects of the Hebrew language! The American-Indian prophets wrote the Book of Mormons, about their Israelite history and migration. This book, written on gold plates, was found in a cave in North America. It was later adopted by the Mormon religion.

    In 70 A.D. the Roman Emperor Titus overthrew the original Jews of Palestine. Some of the Black Jews were taken as captives to the colonies of the Roman Empire, and the rest were expelled and fled into Africa, where they established colonies. It was at that time when the Africans(Hamites) and Arabs (Ishmaelites) took many of the original Black Jews as slaves. This is how the Israelites got to Africa, and this is why they are falsely called African Americans.

    Later on in the 1600s, the remaining Black Hebrew Israelites that were living in Spain, Portugal, and other parts of the Roman Empire were forced to flee for their lives due to the persecutions and murder resulting from the barbaric inquisitions of the Roman Catholic Church! The original Black Jews fled into Africa and Asia to established colonies there. Many of those Black Jews were captured by the Arabs and the Africans, and later sold to the Americas as slaves!

    The Israelite nation consisted of twelve tribes . In 975 BC, shortly after the death of King Solomon, the kingdom was split into two parts. The one part was called Judah (Judea), and it consisted primarily of three tribes: Judah, Benjamin, and Levi. The other division was called Israel, the bulk of which consisted of the remaining tribes: Reuben, Gad, Asher, Napthali, Manasseh, Simeon, Issachar, Dan, Zebulon and Ephraim. In BC 721 the king of Assyria carried Israel away into captivity, and it seemed to have been lost from history ever since.

    Many myths have developed as to the whereabouts of the ten tribes. But the reality is that they were not heard from because they had migrated primarily to the Western Hemisphere and settled in North, South, and Central America. This fact is documented in the Apocrypha << Second Esdras 13:39-49 >>, in the Book of Mormons, and also in James Adair’s History of the American Indians, and several other sources!

    In the Bible Apocrypha, it is documented specifically how ten of the twelve tribes of Israel (the indigenous American-Indians) got from the Middle East to the Americas.

    Apocrypha, Second Esdras 13 verse 39-48: “And whereas thou sawest that he gathered another peaceable multitude unto him; Those are the ten tribes, which were carried away prisoners out of their own land in the time of Osea the king, whom Salmanasar the king of Assyria led away captive, and carried them over the waters, and so came they to another land.”

    “But they took this counsel among themselves, that they would leave the multitude of the heathen, and go forth into a further country, where never mankind dwelt (North, South, and Central America), that they might there keep their statutes, which they never kept in their own land.”

    “And they entered into Euphrates by the narrow passages of the river. For the Most High then showed signs for them, and held still the flood, till they were passed over. For through that country there was a great way to go (across the ocean), namely, of a year and a half: and the same region is called Arsareth. Then dwelt they there (The Americas) until the latter time (Our time today); and now when they shall begin to come (after the Coming of the Messiah!) …But those that be left behind of thy people (the tribes of Judah, Benjamin, and Levi) are they that are found within my borders.”

    The blessings of the tribe of Gad indicate North America and Canada as places where a major group of Israelites will be found!

    Genesis 49 verse 19:
    “Gad, a troop shall overcome him: but he shall overcome at the last.”

    The troop referred to is the U.S. Cavalry. The U.S. Calvary was used to commit terrorism, slaughter, and genocide against the indigenous North American-Indians!

    Deuteronomy 33 verse 20:
    “And of Gad he said, Blessed be he that enlargeth Gad: he dwelleth as a lion, and he teareth the arm with the crown of the head.”

    The American Indians lived close to the earth as hunters and warriors, as a lion. This action of tearing the arm refers to the Blood Brother ritual of the indigenous American-Indians, where the two people make a small cut in their arms and then bring the two cuts together to become blood brothers. The crown of the head refers to the bonnet with feathers, often worn by the indigenous American-Indians!

    The Seminole American-Indians maintain Biblical custom by wearing turbans, and fringes:

    Deuteronomy 22 verse 12:
    “Thou shalt make thee fringes upon the quarters of thy vesture, wherewith thou coverest thyself.”

    The wearing of fringes has always been an important Israelite custom. In addition, the Seminole American-Indians, the Navaho, and other American-Indians have a lot of Hebrew words in their languages. In fact, when the Europeans came to America, they found the Indian languages to be dialects of the Hebrew language! The American-Indian prophets wrote the Book of Mormons, about their Israelite history and migration. This book, written on gold plates, was found in a cave in North America. It was later adopted by the Mormon religion.

    In 70 A.D. the Roman Emperor Titus overthrew the original Jews of Palestine. Some of the Black Jews were taken as captives to the colonies of the Roman Empire, and the rest were expelled and fled into Africa, where they established colonies. It was at that time when the Africans(Hamites) and Arabs (Ishmaelites) took many of the original Black Jews as slaves. This is how the Israelites got to Africa, and this is why they are falsely called African Americans.

    Later on in the 1600s, the remaining Black Hebrew Israelites that were living in Spain, Portugal, and other parts of the Roman Empire were forced to flee for their lives due to the persecutions and murder resulting from the barbaric inquisitions of the Roman Catholic Church! The original Black Jews fled into Africa and Asia to established colonies there. Many of those Black Jews were captured by the Arabs and the Africans, and later sold to the Americas as slaves!

    In the historical book “From Babylon to Timbuktu” by Rudolph R. Windsor, he notes that:

    But looking at the Christian School with the Star of Israel really worried me, because the star is not the star of David but of the Zionism, and hiddien withi it is the Compus which is the sign of Free Masonries.
