    Superiority of any race is not a biblical construct; it is a human one – out of one man came every race – Acts 17:26 states, “And He made from one [common origin, one source, one blood] all nations of men to settle on the face of the earth, having definitely determined [their] allotted periods of time and the fixed boundaries of their habitation (their settlements, lands, and abodes) , and this “one common origin and source” is Kushitic or Cushitic. We are all descendents from Adam and Eve, made in the image of God (I Corinthians 14:45). It is from this root that all the peoples of the world developed. It was God who placed each of Noah’s sons, Ham, Shem and Japheth’s in boundaries that he had established for their habitation, Ham and Shem occupying what we call today Africa and Arabia, and Japheth in the far North. It is God who also allotted each their own periods to dominate and rule in the earth, their very definitive allotment of times, Ham, Shem and now Japheth. I will put forth in this work evidence, biblically, archaeologically, anthropologically, scientific genetic DNA evidence that will clearly delineate the pre-flood inhabitants, and each of the nations of people that came forth after the flood with Noah’s sons, Ham, Shem and Japheth; as well as explore the root of racism based on skin color and the ancient biblical landscape and its peoples. We will explore the ancient landscape of Mesopotamia looking at Sumer and Shinar, the dispersion of the people at the Tower and the development of the different tongues and races; then we will look at Japheth’s sons and the Age of Discovery, the development of European Imperialism and its resultant racist agenda that led to the African slave trade, the colonization of Africa and the atrocities and horrors that has led to racism based on black skin and religion resulting in the Holocaust. We will explore the biblical truth of the black nations through the lens of God, not man. What does God say about the Ethiopian who He declared could not change his skin color; this truth as the prophet Jeremiah brought forth will also be revealed. Just who are the Kushitic peoples and how did they become the root of all the races. How did Kush get in the Garden of Eden and what does Kush have to do with the development of Egypt, Ethiopia and Libya. This work will explore Egypt and Israel’s ancient history and relationship; it will look at the true ethnicity of the Ancient Israelites, the Canaanites, and the Semites, Ethiopians, Assyrians, the Babylonians and the Egyptians, and the prophetic word for them in these last days. Satan is the father and the source for lies and deception, and this work will look at the deep deception and lies that have been put forth to hide the true identity of Ham’s black sons and Shem’s brown ones. It is a timely look at Egypt, Ethiopia, Libya, Tunisia, Yemen, Arabia, and all the rumbling and shakings that are now gripping what we know as the Ancient Biblical Landscape of the Torah, and this impacts its descendents dispersed around the world in the African Diaspora. The truth has been concealed for centuries but God is bringing the true revelation in this book. It is a must read for every human being living today who wants to know the truth and be set free as only God’s truth can do.

    ‘Iffat Al Thunayan, spouse of the late King Faysal bin ‘Abdul ‘Aziz Al Sa‘ud (r. 1964–1975), was a pillar of the ruling Al Sa‘ud family. Born and raised in Istanbul to an uprooted Sa‘udi family, she returned to the Kingdom in 1932, a few months before the founder ruler, ‘Abdul ‘Aziz bin ‘Abdul Rahman, reinstituted the monarchy. ‘Iffat used her influence to infiltrate many progressive ideas into the Kingdom, including significant strides in education for both boys and girls as well as major advances in health care. An astute observer and a doer par excellence, Queen ‘Iffat left her mark on the contemporary history of the Al Sa‘ud, as she protected and empowered her kin. She raised a formidable family, listened carefully, guided conversations as necessary, spoke with moderation, and recommended policies to her husband and, after he was assassinated, to her brothers-in-law who succeeded him. A politically conscious spouse, Queen ‘Iffat played the leading role in Sa‘udi female society, attended many state functions, and received female state guests. She traveled extensively, especially in Europe and the United States, supported myriad charities, and cajoled many to invest in the Kingdom. Universally respected, many people sought her advice for she shared her ambitions and ideas to benefit the entire country. Based on multiple interviews conducted with members of the al-Faysal family, friends, and acquaintances of the late queen, Joseph A. Kéchichian offers the first political biography of a Sa‘udi monarch’s spouse. This work is an important resource for social scientists and political analysts, and of interest to all who wish to learn about Arab women in general, and Sa‘udi women in particular.
