Ramle Prison was a maximum-security prison similar to San Quentin or Alcatraz in America. It housed some of the most notorious prisoners in the world, including men and women of terrorist organizations. Kozo Okamoto, a member of the Japanese Red Brigade that committed the massacre at Lod International Airport in 1972, was a fellow prisoner. There were also other notorious international spies, hijackers, murderers, and conspirators of all nationalities, in addition to just common hardened Israeli criminals.
The court date was set for one week after the imprisonment. To the surprise of all of the men, they saw Sister Nafshe, Sister Nacamah, Sister Ministerah and Emah Miriam being held in the same hostile atmosphere of the Israeli court holding cell. There was no contact as the brothers were on one side and the sisters were on the other. In court, the prosecuting attorney requested and received a period of 15 days for “investigation purposes.” After returning to their cells, they sang, “Father, Father, I stretch my hands to Thee.” They had confidence in Yah and their faith was unbreakable. Both prisoners and guards alike respected them. At the end of the “investigation period” the brothers were again taken to the courthouse. When they saw the sisters, because they were unable to speak to each other individually, they all began to sing. The brothers and the sisters sang so loud and with so much power that the other detainees got “caught up” in the spirit of song. Continuing to sing in the joy of the Lord brought forth messages from the judges that they had better be quiet for they were forbidden to sing like that in a court house. Sounds of joy and praises penetrated those gloomy walls where sadness and depression reigned. One could hear the sisters as they continued to sing so soft, so sweet, and so clear.… (Page 30)
So we go into Abu Kabir – this is October now; that was some kind of place. In our “room” there were nine beds cemented to the floor. At that time it could have been “the Ramle Nine,” – Prince Elkanon and Minister Yissachar were in there also – nine beds, nine people... perfect. After we were escorted to the cell, we received a letter smuggled in by a sympathetic guard from two of our sisters, who, much to our surprise, had also been arrested. The sisters were Nacamah, wife of Prince Ahmeshadye and Ministerah, wife of the former Prince Ben Daveed. This was my second time being arrested and placed in what the police called “protective custody” which, in reality, is simply detention without cause. In the meantime we still were trying to relinquish our citizenship. Abba Gadol (Ben Ammi) had gotten a bus and was going to try to come up with the Saints, to relinquish their American citizenship en masse. Some kind of way, the Israelis had intelligence about this attempt. Consequently, they stopped the bus, and got everybody out. Our sisters were told to run into the adjacent fields, causing all the police to take off running after them. Meanwhile, Abba had told a Brother named Shavat, to collect all the passports and get away. The brother got away with all the passports and went on back to Dimona. How he did that, I still do not know. But they took everybody to Abu Kabir, held the Saints there until the embassy was closed, and then let everybody go.
Now this was the first time the Israeli government put their hands on us, wrestling our sisters in the field and all that. I don’t remember the exact day, but it was close to October 6, 1973, the beginning of the Yom Kippur War. We were in Abu Kabir. We can hear the sirens going off. The Egyptian air force, they’ve sent planes over. They’ve got aerial dogfights being fought over Tel Aviv and we’re near the explosions. We can hear all of this. So, they get all the prisoners out of their cells, and they line us up in the hallway facing the wall, the idea being that if a bomb hits near us, the walls will protect your face and body from most of the damage…..

What happened to the people of the Adamic creation? Where are those beings formed and fashioned in the image of the Creator?
When one takes a look at the state of the world created by modern man, we are hard pressed to see anything that connects us to the creation account in Genesis. Certainly a man created in the image of God, would not pollute with such recklessness. He would not cultivate corruption, immorality, deception, war and violence with such impudence. It can only lead us to ask, “who is this man”?” What happened to the people of the Adamic creation? Where are those beings formed and fashioned in the image of the Creator?......Read the rest and follow discussion at link below

Film offers us a powerful tool to shift awareness and inspire action. By hosting community film screenings and sharing them online, they offer a method to break our dependence on the mainstream media and become the media ourselves. We don't need to wait for anyone or anything.Just imagine what could become possible if an entire city had seen just one of the documentaries below. Just imagine what would be possible if everyone in the country was aware of how unhealthy the mainstream media was for our future and started turning to independent sources in droves.Creating a better world really does start with an informed citizenry, and there's lots of subject matter to cover. Our country has to come to terms with the true history of Western civilization. It has to learn about basic ecology. It needs to understand some basic truths about peak oil and the monetary system, the truth about capitalism and governments.Our society needs a new story to belong to. The old story of empire and…Continue
The dangers of EurocentrismBesides being blatantly racist, the assumption that the Children of Israel's ancestors were white is fundamentally flawed, and can lead to confusion, misguided policies and worse.By Ahmadiel Ben Yehuda Sep.14, 2012 | 2:00 AMHaaretz.comMost Israelis would doubtless dissociate themselves from Interior Minister Eli Yishai's spiteful declaration earlier this year, as reported by Maariv, that "this country belongs to us, to the white man."However, a widespread "presumption of whiteness" exists where Jewish identity is concerned, not just on the part of Israelis and Jews, but generally among most people in the world. Besides being blatantly racist, the assumption that the Children of Israel's ancestors were white is fundamentally flawed, and can lead to confusion, misguided policies and worse.Dispersed throughout Africa and the distant Americas are millions of Africans who claim Hebraic ancestry. While their practices and family heritage may not conform to…Continue
A RECOVERING RAP ADDICT'S QUEST FOR THE QUINTESSENCE by Ben Khayil B.A. Khazriel ( codename: Ben-REAL )Introduction “Music is much more than a form of entertainment; music identifies races, nationalities, and communities. It has far-reaching hypnotic effects on the brain and soul, and can take complete control of the body and mind. Music can determine the mood of a person or a people. After comprehending its profound effects on the mind, it stands to reason that we must beware, for the effects can be good or evil. Music is like a series of thought waves that cause men to think and do right or wrong, wise things or foolish things.Blacks have once more fallen victim to the deceitful use of words. There has been a conspiracy against Black people, perpetuated through a musical transformation. The message of Black music had to be destroyed because of it's strength and vision. Music is a part of our very soul and spirit; therefore it would have to be utilized and manipulated by an enemy…Continue
