The Sao Tome Enterprise
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught us that the new white race came to live with the original people 6,000 years ago. Evidently at that time the people allowed these new white folk to live among them until they found out that they were devils. After which they ran them form among them. The white man had to invent another tactic and that tactic was to raid and steal black woman, rape them to produce mulatto children, then raise those children like a new breed of cattle to go in among the original people to trick them into doing business with their white fathers. Take the island of Sao Tome as an example,
In a new book, Jews and Judaism in African History, author Richard Hull describes how Portuguese in 1470 found an “uninhabited” island 120 miles off the coast of the kingdom of the Kongo. In the 1480s the Portuguese began capturing slaves in the “slave rivers” of the Bight of Benin. After they captured Kongolese female slaves they would bring them back to this island and breed them with white Jews and conversos (Jewish converts to Christianity) until they had produced a mixed population of mesticos. Some of these mesticos became rich and powerful on the island and laid the foundations not only of the trans-Atlantic slave trade but of the modern plantation system of agriculture that further evolved in the New World.(p. 91)
So how would you categorize these mesticos? If you asked them, they would call themselves “Portuguese.” If you ask modern historians who want to blame the indigenous Africans for the slave trade, they would classify them as “Africans.”
We should look at what happened in Palestine 2,500 years ago in the same manner. Were the “returnees” the Children of Israel or the Children of the Babylonian/Persian rapists?
According to the Bible, the male children that were captured by the Babylonians were castrated and made eunuchs to be (bell-whether) servants to the Babylonian leadership. After King Hezekiah, king of Jerusalem, had entertained emissaries from Babylon, Isaiah the prophet declared: 2 Kings 20:17, 18
“17 Behold, the days come, that all that is in thine house, and that which your fathers have laid up in store until this day, shall be carried into Babylon: nothing shall be left, saith the Lord.
18 And of thy sons that shall issue from thee, which thou shalt beget, shall they take away; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon.”
A “eunuch” is a castrated male.
Included among them was Daniel who according to the Bible served Nebuchadnezzar, Cyrus and Darius, but was never recorded to have married or fathered children. And since descent or lineage is passed down through the father, the dignitaries and royal families of Jerusalem could never have offspring to be “returnees”. Therefore, the only candidates for “return” were children of the raped women who had been brought up in the house of Babylon and Persia to serve the aims, wishes and gods of their masters.
According to the Bible these “returnees” were not supposed to marry people who lived in Judea although these were supposed relatives. The invaders, Pharisees (sheepdogs), kept themselves separate from the indigenous masses (sheep) and ruled over them for Persia (Magi, evil shepherds).
I had accepted this idea of captivity and return until I read one line in a book by Okasha El-Daly called Egyptology: The Missing Millennium (2005). It reads, “…it was suggested that a Babylonian king, Nebuchadnezzar, conquered Egypt and killed her lame pharaoh, then took back with him thousands of Egyptians who settled in Babylon.” (p. 16) However, other historians argue that Nebuchadnezzar never entered Egypt. Now before I bring more evidence on this point, I must refer us back to our introduction and the statement that The Messenger wrote about Jesus going to Jerusalem looking for the “lost sheep.” We asked the question, “Who were these ‘lost sheep’ and how did they end up in Israel? Also remember from your Bible studies that Jesus was taken to Egypt when he was a little boy by his parents. Did he learn about these “lost sheep” while he lived in Egypt?
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad has warned us about the “Poison Book.” Now let’s show how it can be manipulated in the hands of a snake. According to the book of Ezekiel, the “Sovereign Lord” gave him a prophecy about Nebuchadnezzar conquering Egypt. Bible scholars understood the problem this would bring to their whole Jerusalem/captivity/return model if indeed Nebuchadnezzar had conquered a real prize or kingdom (Egypt) instead of just a city, Jerusalem. However, to deny the fact that Nebuchadnezzar actually conquered Egypt and even built a huge fort there would make Ezekiel a false prophet and the Bible suspect. These passages from the 29th chapter of Ezekiel are illuminating from a number of perspectives.
Ezekiel 29:8-21 New International Version (NIV):
8 “‘Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I will bring a sword against you and kill both man and beast. 9 Egypt will become a desolate wasteland. Then they will know that I am the Lord.
“‘Because you said, “The Nile is mine; I made it,” 10 therefore I am against you and against your streams, and I will make the land of Egypt a ruin and a desolate waste from Migdol to Aswan, as far as the border of Cush. 11 The foot of neither man nor beast will pass through it; no one will live there for forty years. 12 I will make the land of Egypt desolate among devastated lands, and her cities will lie desolate forty years among ruined cities. And I will disperse the Egyptians among the nations and scatter them through the countries.
13 “‘Yet this is what the Sovereign Lord says: At the end of forty years I will gather the Egyptians from the nations where they were scattered. 14 I will bring them back from captivity and return them to Upper Egypt, the land of their ancestry. There they will be a lowly kingdom. 15 It will be the lowliest of kingdoms and will never again exalt itself above the other nations. I will make it so weak that it will never again rule over the nations. 16 Egypt will no longer be a source of confidence for the people of Israel but will be a reminder of their sin in turning to her for help. Then they will know that I am the Sovereign Lord.’
17 In the twenty-seventh year, in the first month on the first day, the word of the Lord came to me: 18 “Son of man, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon drove his army in a hard campaign against Tyre; every head was rubbed bare and every shoulder made raw. Yet he and his army got no reward from the campaign he led against Tyre. 19 Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am going to give Egypt to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and he will carry off its wealth. He will loot and plunder the land as pay for his army. 20 I have given him Egypt as a reward for his efforts because he and his army did it for me, declares the Sovereign Lord.
Now let us dissect these passages. First of all this is some pretty specific stuff. The “Sovereign Lord” was angry with Egypt because the people of Egypt claimed to have “made” the Nile River. Well this is true. The Ancient Egyptians did indeed build the Nile River as an engineer would build a road. You can see my proofs in I will not apologize: The resurrection of the Master Architect. But this “Sovereign Lord” is a real jealous fellow.
Then in verses 13 and 14 the Egyptians would be taken away from Egypt for 40 years and then returned to “Upper Egypt.” Well Upper Egypt would be Aswan or Elephantine where a Jewish colony was indeed established by the Persians at about the same time that the Persians sent their colony of half-breeds into Palestine. Since I don’t accept this exile and return to the same land, I will latter give a more realistic view of what happened.
In verse 19 the Sovereign Lord promises to pay Nebuchadnezzar for taking Tyre by giving him the “wealth” of Egypt. So evidently what was taken by Nebuchadnezzar from the Jerusalem Temple was not enough payment. If a sane mind would compare the wealth of the Jerusalem Temple to the wealth of Egypt at that time, that sane mind would say that the “Sovereign Lord” could not have bought Nebuchadnezzar with the Jerusalem Temple’s wealth. There is no comparison. Egypt had at least 42 temples that were all bigger and had more gold in each of them than did the one temple in Jerusalem.
I find it most interesting that the writers of the Bible had knowledge of Egypt up to “Aswan” at the first cataract in Upper Egypt. However, there is no mention in the Bible of the pyramids or the Sphinx which were near modern Cairo where the Nile branches out into the Delta which is considered Lower Egypt, because the Nile runs South to North. At first I thought that the pyramids and Sphinx were not mentioned in the Bible because its authors never made it that far up into Egypt. But now I see that the authors of the Bible were jealous of the greatness of Egypt. And this was why Egypt was such a great “prize” that the “Sovereign Lord” gave Nebuchadnezzar as payment for a job well done. The Bible begins to look more like propaganda produced by enemies of Egypt in Mesopotamia.
Fort Babylon in Egypt
As I studied Ancient Egypt and the pyramids I always wondered why was there a town or precinct called “Babylon” within the present city of Cairo. A 2010 book by Peter Sheehan, Babylon of Egypt, presents a history of Old Cairo based on new archaeological evidence gathered between 2000 and 2006 during a major project to lower the groundwater level affecting the churches and monuments of this area of Cairo known by the Romans as “Babylon.”
In his book Sheehan reprints a seventh-century account of John, the Coptic Bishop of Nikiu, of the conquering of Egypt by Nebuchadnezzar in 568 BC and the building of the fortress of Babylon:
“…Nebuchadnezzar the king of the Magi and Persians was the first to build its foundations and to name it the fortress of Babylon…Nebuchadnezzar came to Egypt with a numerous army and made a conquest of Egypt, because the Jews had revolted against him, and he named [the fortress] Babylon after the name of his own city…”(p. 38)
The location of this fortress was strategic. Not only was it at the apex of the Delta, but was connected to a canal which Necho II had errantly dug in his attempt to connect the Nile with the Red Sea. After Necho II was defeated by Nebuchadnezzar at Carchemish in Northern Syria in 605 BC, Necho thought of digging a canal not far from the capital of Egypt, Memphis, to the Red Sea which would allow him to mount a naval attack against Nebuchadnezzar via the Red Sea, the Arabian Sea and the Persian Gulf. When warned about the danger of making such a canal that could be used in the reverse against Egypt, Necho halted the construction even after 120,000 men had died in the undertaking.
However, the Nile itself after an exceptional flood level made its on channel through the unfinished canal. This connection to the Red Sea allowed Nebuchadnezzar to enter Egypt at this very strategic point and conquer her. Even though some modern historians do not want to accept the fact that Nebuchadnezzar accomplished this victory, the 200 meter by 400 meter fort named after his city is proof.
According to what we read in Ezekiel 29, Egypt lay desolate under the control of Babylon/Persia for 40 years bringing us to 528 BC. Cambyses enters Egypt and destroys temples of all the gods except the Jewish god at Elephantine in 525 BC. He tried to reach Ethiopia but failed.

458 BC – Ezra writes Pentateuch and Judaism is born
Where did Ezra get the material to write the Pentateuch or Torah?
Now that we know that the Pentateuch, first five books of the Bible, also called the Torah, was not in the possession of the Jews until their sojourn in Babylon. According to Jeremiah 8:8 New International Version (NIV):
8 “‘How can you say, “We are wise,
for we have the law of the Lord,”
when actually the lying pen of the scribes
has handled it falsely?”
So “Jeremiah” agrees with The Honorable Elijah Muhammad that the Bible has been tampered with, however the question remains is where did Ezra and the other “scribes” get the raw material from which to translate and change? If you remember, Gerald Massey wrote that Ezra had rolls of papyrus written in Egyptian hieroglyphics: “…Ezra dictated the translation during forty days and nights, and the five scribes wrote down what they were told by him. Which they knew not, as they did not understand the original characters.” (Massey, 1987; p. 119)
Ezra himself is an enigmatic figure according to the Bible Unearthed. He shows up from nowhere, dictates the five books of Moses to a number of scribes, takes his new Torah to Jerusalem, then disappears. Since he came to Babylon under the rule of Darius, we can now see where he may have gotten the raw materials from which to extract what he needed to please his patron, Darius. Darius had all the scribes and learned men of Egypt to spend 16 years transcribing what they saw on the walls of the temples in Egypt and place that information on papyrus rolls. (Remember what Gerald Massey wrote about these papyrus rolls.)
Sixteen years is a lot of time, therefore the volume of writings must have been immense. I visited Egypt in 1989 and the amount of writings on the walls of the few restored temples that I visited was tremendous.
Darius was a lot wiser than the Assyrians who conquered Egypt and took her capital, Memphis, in 667 BC, only to see Egyptians return from their original home, Ethiopia, kick them out and run them back to Turkey. Cambyses tried to get to Ethiopia but almost died in the deserts of Nubia before he could reach Ethiopia (see Appendix). Darius took a different route. The Persians put half-breeds at the two gates of Egypt, Jerusalem and Elephantine, then they destroyed the temples, took all the books, then fabricated a new Book of history and a new religion for these new Jews, giving everybody a new identity based on the political and theological framework of Persia/Babylonia/Iran. It worked.
Ben Ezra Synagogue
The Jews love their history and do all they can to control anything that they believe once belonged to them. A case in point is the decision by Abraham ibn Ezra of Jerusalem in 882 AD to purchase land within Fort Babylon for the erection of a synagogue which is called the Ben Ezra Synagogue or the El-Geniza Synagogue. This was the synagogue whose geniza or store room was found in the 19th century to contain a treasure of abandoned Hebrew secular and sacred manuscripts. The collection, known as the Cairo Geniza, was brought to Cambridge, England at the instigation of Solomon Schechter and is now divided between several academic libraries. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Ezra_Synagogue)
It may just be a coincidence that a synagogue set up by a Rabbi named after Ezra who is credited with restoring the Bible and probably had volumes of Egyptian manuscripts to work from, also was a storage house in the Babylon of Egypt for ancient Hebrew manuscripts. Could this be the place where Ezra actually did his work in the service of Darius who had the law of Egypt codified? I’m just thinking out loud.
Your father, the devil
John 8:33, 44
33 They answered him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?”
44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
Now let us go back to these words ascribed to Jesus in the Book of John. How can a people be Abraham’s seed, but never being a slave and whose father is “the devil”? Jesus was arguing with the Pharisees, so let us look at them from the perspective of the paradigm that I have presented above; the so-called returnees to Jerusalem were the products from the rape of African/Egyptian women by the Babylonians/Persians. Therefore, through the female they may have the seed of Abraham, but through rape, the seed of the devil, white man, was forcedly placed in them and that seed of the devil is what is arguing with Jesus.
Another clue to this paradigm is the name of the first governor of Judea after the “Captivity”, Zerubbabel which means “seed of Babylon.” Zerubbabel was put in charge of collecting taxes for Persia and given the charge by Darius of building the Temple in Jerusalem. Since Zerubbabel had no Hebrew Bible, his main function must have been tax collection for Persia. The “seed of Babylon” takes on a new skin and shrouds itself in “mystery” as it passes from generation to generation, chapter to chapter up to Revelations.
