Based on the discussions we have been having in the other thread relative to the Arab slave trade predominantly in post-Ghadaffy Libya, and in the other Arab countries mentioned in that thread, I am of the opinion that we (most Black African Nations) should endeavor to embrace the state of ISREAL more closely in terms relative to human, and national developments that have eluded us since the period in which "independence" from the colonizers was granted.
Why? Because the enemy of my enemy should be my friend, logically-speaking, of-course. That "tiny" Jewish nation has endured all kinds of hateful recourse by dem A-rabs through wars and other violent means, and she is still standing tall, and will NEVER be defeated through their strong determination to exist as a nation, since biblical times when Moses led them out of Egypt where they were enslaved, just like the sub-Saharan black Africans are presently being re-enslaved in the twenty-first century. We must cultivate and inculcate the notion that since the Jewish Zionists have borne the brunt of slavery, and genocide, they, in turn, would NEVER attempt to repeat that pattern against us. I hope I am NOT wrong in this estimation. Israel is technologically very advanced for her size and population, and the Jews are very adept, and endowed in the creation of wealth, personally, and nationally. We can learn a thing or two from being friends with them. Where has our support for the A-rab course taken us? Being brutalized, enslaved, and roasted alive on poles like barbecuing a pig? Is that is where? Thus, we must re-direct our collective focus and encourage those folks who have gone through these kinds of experiences, and have vowed that NEVER AGAIN would they go through that kind of inhumanity. We must seek their help in making the same vow through our own indigenous determination through a governance structure that should be mindful of precluding this imposed inhumanity on our race. Many years ago on Saro fora I advocated for this stance to be taken by us in sub-Saharan Africa. I am here again to reinforce this advocacy. I hope y'alls are game enough.

Bra Cornie faint late!
Na now u day respond to that piece that was written in 2017? in 2018? Where have you been all this while? And why do you speak and write in riddles? Truthfully tell we oose wan u day. Do not hide your words of support. Are you in favor of my article or not? In 2018 we must NOT be continually fooled again in support of the "Arab" cause in this dilemma. I am backing the state of ISRAEL. Happy New Year to you and yours, Bra Cornie Rabbit.

In all honesty, what good word does Sengbe have for the Palestinian Brethren?
Reply with quote #6
What do you mean? Palestinian Brethren? Let them seek PEACE with the Israelites.
Based on the pictures posted on the Bintu a few weeks ago, I have no good words for them ARABS. Honesty is the best policy.

Is Sengbe really serious? Does he know what the Israelis are doing to his fellow african brothers and sisters? Africans refugees are currently being rounded up and deported back to their countries. You have no problem with that Sengbe?
Reply with quote #8
When you say that you ”have no good words for them ARABS” is that not a sign and a symptom of unmitigated, dangerous racism? Haughty tribalism? What is your advice to Brer Bio, Bra Kamara, Alhaji Yumkella? What would you do if some guys came and took your land?

Bra Cornie! are you a Jew or a Muslim?
I am a Christian. "...When you say that you ”have no good words for them ARABS” is that not a sign and a symptom of unmitigated, dangerous racism? Haughty tribalism?..." C. Hamelberg I do NOT believe that is the case as far as I am concerned. I would like to refer you to them Libyan [post Ghaddafy] Arabs selling my Black African Brothers and Sisters into SLAVERY, and burning them alive on poles like suckling pigs. Now if you condone those uncivilized, nasty, and inhuman actions by them A-Rabs, then more power to you, and everlastingly forget about me as a friend. I am NOT a hypocrite like some folks I know. "...What is your advice to Brer Bio, Bra Kamara, Alhaji Yumkella?..." Let the best candidate win. "...What would you do if some guys came and took your land?..." In what context are you making this query? From Biblical times to the present? Who took whose land? Who was there first? Let there be a two-state solution to obviate the problem.

"...Africans refugees are currently being rounded up and deported back to their countries..." At least they are not being sold into slavery for a measely $400 like your Muslim Arab brothers are doing to my people, and burning them alive on poles like pigs. "...You have no problem with that Sengbe..." Not if they broke the immigration laws of the State of Israel. What State airlifted thousands of Falashas from Ethiopia during Mengistu's dictatorship, and gave them citizenship many years ago? The Jewish State of Israel, that is who. Who brutalizes sub-Saharan Africans and enslaves them into inhuman bondage in the past and in the 21st century? It is them Islamic Arabs of Libya, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, UAE, etc. that you share a "religious faith" with - that is who. I will NOT respond to you again.

"What State airlifted thousands of Falashas from Ethiopia during Mengistu's dictatorship, and gave them citizenship many years ago? The Jewish State of Israel, that is who" -Sengbe But Sengbe do you know what those airlifted people are subjected to in Israel? Do you know the kind of discrimination they face daily? Do you know the people who are sent to the war front to be attached and killed by Palestinians freedom fighters? If you don't please google it for your hate for Arabs and Muslims seems to be for other reasons and not what took place in Libya. I can't believe you are generalizing the despicable show of barbarism of few Libyans in a destabilized country with a dysfunctional central government to Palestine. What do Palestine has to do with what was going on in Libya? "Who brutalizes sub-Saharan Africans and enslaves them into inhuman bondage in the past and in the 21st century?" Sengbe Answer: Where were you during the South African Apartheid which existed up to the nineties? Sengbe, note the difference between Libya and Israel: In Israel, apartheid is state sponsored where as what took place in Libya is not state sponsored. You get that or do you need more lessons on this subject?

"...But Sengbe do you know what those airlifted people are subjected to in Israel? Do you know the kind of discrimination they face daily? Do you know the people who are sent to the war front to be ?attached? and killed by Palestinians freedom fighters?..." statement by UNREGISTERED (aka Ishmael Kamara)
I would rather be discriminated against than to be enslaved into inhumanity. Are you not discriminated against while doing your "fitter woke" in Sweden? Are black peoples not discriminated against in most foreign countries they emigrate to, and are citizens of? So this statement pales in comparison to the barbaric inhumanity meted out to our black folks by your Islamic Arabic compatriots. If you are a member of the armed forces of a nation that is constantly under threat of war, you should not be surprised if you are sent to the warfront. Should they be on the sidelines during skirmishes because they are Falashas or ostracized black Ethiopian Jews who were airlifted from their homeland by the Israelites to preclude the genocide they were faced with at the hands of Mendistu, the genocidal maniac? What do you prefer? I prefer to be sent to the warfront as a trained soldier of the nation that saved me and gave me citizenship. The comparison in the complaint you have stated is notwithstanding, and foolish in this case. "...If you don't please google it for your hate for Arabs and Muslims seems to be for other reasons and not what took place in Libya..." Google what? To compare red apples to poisoned oranges in your faulty thought process? I'd pass on that. FYI, Sengbe does NOT hate ALL Arabs and Muslims, only the ungodly ones. "...In Israel, apartheid is state sponsored where as what took place in Libya is not state sponsored..." I'd rather live in an apartheid system of governance than be roasted alive on a pole like a pig. "...You get that or do you need more lessons on this subject?...? Let me be brief and to the point: there is NO subject matter on Earth that you of all people can give me lessons on. Bye!

Now I know why it is very difficult to teach an old dog new tricks. You have always been full of hate and there is nothing one can do now to change the thinking of a 70+years old man. You have clearly shown you tendencies here by persistently referring to me as Ismael Kamara. My guess is that you have so much hatred for this fellow that you will not let go. BTW is I'm not Ismael and I don't know him.

How do you know that I am "a 70+years old" man? You are pointing a finger at me whilst the other four are pointing right at your UGLY face. "...My guess is that you have so much hatred for this fellow that you will not let go..." Kondo If I did, then brought it upon himself, by calling me names out of my moniker. It serves him right. it "...BTW is? I'm not Ismael and I don't know him..." Yes you are! Your signature is quite recognizable through your signature themes in your half-baked writings on the forum using many different monikers posing as some sort of intellectual working on a phantom "PhD in Engineering" when none exists anywhere in the world. LIAR, LIAR, pants on FIRE!! You cannot fool anyone on this forum, you Silly Negro!

It’s the year 5778 / 2018 General Konouwah, Jerusalem President Trump has said his and it’s a universal premise, - that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, but more importantly, what says THE ALMIGHTY - unilaterally or otherwise about the dispute between Israelis and Arabs? It should be also Interesting to know or hear what THE ALMIGHTY says about Mecca, Medina, Ramallah, Hebron Next year Jerusalem Yehuda Amichai: Jerusalem Psalm 137 Jesus of Nazareth : “Again you have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform your oaths to the Lord.’ But I say to you, do not swear at all: neither by heaven, for it is God’s throne; nor by the earth, for it is His footstool; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King.” ( the Gospel according to Matthew 5:33 -34 I did my embracing and kissing and all that a long time ago. Your question was , “Should we not embrace Israel at last ?” and by “ we” you mean you (Sengbe), Sierra Leone and other Black African nations. Slave-trading in Libya notwithstanding, it doesn’t look like the most opportune time for you to be taking your pro-Israel advocacy to Sierra Leone’s future leader from among Messrs Bio, Kamara and Alhaji Yumkella for their further consideration. Gaddafi went a little further : He invited Israel to join the Arab League. Can you beat that? What are current Israel-Sierra Leone relations? OK. The diamond business . Agriculture? Medicine? IT? Sierra Leone has a 70% Muslim population is a member of the OIC and I suppose that relations between Israel and members of the OIC are carefully discussed at OIC meetings and this must influence how Sierra Leone votes at the UN on Palestinian matters . ( I don’t think that some of the other OIC members are going to take kindly to your proposition that it’s high time that they embrace Israel I took the shahada at the home of my Palestinian friend Fah’d Ahmed on the 13th of January 1986 and since then I have followed Islamic matters quite closely 1986 -1996 and Israeli matters 1996 - 2016. My personal connections or lack thereof with the Almighty and the rest of His creation is another private and privileged matter about which the Almighty is more informed than anybody else. The fact that the two state solution is dead , as dead as a dodo, does not depend on you being a Christian, Trump being the Messiah or Hamas and the PLO & Co being overwhelmingly Muslim like Alhaji Yumkella or the late Pa Kabbah But there is a possibility that you may resurrect the moribund peace process in which case your main headache is going to be this: On what land are the Palestinians going to erect their State of Palestine? For some years now there has been talk that the Palestinians already have a state and it’s known as the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and some others talk of a Transjordan/ Palestine-Jordan ConFederation - there's a lot of territory therein. Apart from the “revealed religions there’s also e.g. Buddhism : The Monk and the Philosopher: A Father and Son Discuss the Meaning of Life

Here we go again!
Bra Cornie Rabbit evading the simple query through this statement, as follows: "... My personal connections or lack thereof with the Almighty and the rest of His creation is another private and privileged matter about which the Almighty is more informed than anybody else..." Why is it so difficult for him to answer this question truthfully? OK then let me break it up into two questions: Bra Cornie are you a JEW? Bra Cornie Rabbit, are you a Muslim? I believe that one cannot be a faithful follower of more than one organized religion. The key words are FAITHFUL FOLLOWER. Based on my interaction with you on cyber forums over the years, I know quite well that you are very wildly read. You have written articles about Islam, Jewish Zionism, Buddhism, etc. But we would like to know the religion you faithfully follow. I cannot be wrong in the belief that you are a practicing JEW. Now, as far as Saro is concerned, the next leader of that nation would be better advised as NOT to put the nation of ISRAEL on the back burner. And members of the parliamentary house that Israel built many years ago - that has still not crumbled down the Tower hill - must follow suit for the developmental benefits of ALL of the nationals of that [backward] nation, never mind the stated 70% Muslim population, which I partially believe.

General Konouwah, There are the Noahide Laws , said to be incumbent on all mankind. There was Chaim Luzzatto who made a compelling case for his religion. You seem to be emphasising Judaism as a religion , but it is much more than that; it’s a peoplehood. There are all kinds of Jews , Zionist human beings, non-Zionists, orthodox , unorthodox, ultra-orthodox, hasidic, “conservative”, reconstructionist, vegetarian, humanist, Marxist, atheist, “messianic” there are even the Jews of Islam , but please take this to heart : I know next to nothing about the aforementioned denominations. You will probably find this interesting:: BTW , I think that your Arab friends would much prefer a firm, no-nonsens anti-Zionist as Sierra Leone's next president...

But why are you so verbosely evading the question?
Perhaps I should re-phrase the query in more general terms: Bra Cornie, what organized religion do you faithfully follow?We thank you very kindly for providing the references above, but please succinctly answer the question posed to you in this thread since you came on board. Please be proud of the God you pray to. I envision that you pray to only ONE God Almighty, since I believe that you are not multi-deistic religiously. Or are you?

Please forgive or excuse me. Feeling at home in the friendly Bintumani environment (in the big boat together), hidden or forbidden thoughts sometimes surface or erupt and get expressed, sometimes , following some reflection, sometimes, like a lion cub, without a damn thought as to consequences.
It is reported that “When a Nazi guard asked a Jewish Holocaust inmate why he prayed every day, the Jew replied, “I thank God every day that He did not make me like you”...consequences.
About this religion thing especially the Judaic ethic (and wouldn’t the whole world including Mahmud Abbas and HAMAS, Brers Bio, Yumkella , Ernest Bai Koroma and Sampson Kamara, the SLPP, the APC and the NGC be at peace, united and happy, if only we would all abide by it?:
“ A gentile came before Rabbi Hillel and asked to be converted on the condition that Hillel teach him the entire Torah while standing on one foot. Hillel said to him : “ What is hateful to you, to your fellow man don’t do. That’s the entire Torah; everything else is elaboration. So go study.”
That was Hillel speaking there.
It’s the Almighty Himself speaking here:
You shall neither take revenge from nor bear a grudge against the members of your people; you shall love your neighbour as yourself. I am the Lord. ( Leviticus 19.18 )
Jesus quotes this Torah passage somewhere in the Bible - but does not add, “ I Am the Lord!
Who is your neighbour? Who is not?
