    Egypt was called “the land of Kemia” (or “Kemet”) in ancient times. The root word “kem” means “black” in the Egyptian language. The English word “chemistry” is derived from the Egyptian “kem.” The word “Egypt” itself means “black” in the Hebrew language. So does the word “Cush,” the ancient name of Sudan, the country that shares Egypt’s southern border. The word “Africa” is the Latinized version of the Arabic “Ifriqiyah,” which translates “the Queen of Heaven.” “Ifriqiyah” was also the original name of Tunisia, the northernmost country on the African continent.

    The people called “the Jews” were enslaved in ancient Egypt because they were the first strangers that migrated into the country, being the first of the mixed people. The Gentiles of the Bible were the Greeks and Romans, offspring of the children of Adam and Eve who wandered north. Those who migrated further north founded the Biblical nations of Gog and Magog (Ezekiel 38:2). These nations are now called Europe and Russia.

    The Biblical patriarch Abraham is called the father of all Semitic nations. He and his followers were the first people of ancient Chaldea to leave their country and cross the Euphrates River on their way to the land of Canaan, or the “Promised Land.” They were called “Eberus,” in order to distinguish them from the Babylonians, Chaldeans and Israelites who stayed in Babylon, the ancient capital of Chaldea. Abraham was a descendant of Eber, Noah’s great-great grandson, and the word “Eber” means “the region beyond.” Through incorrect transliteration by some Biblical translators, Abraham the Eberu became Abraham the “Hebrew” (Gen. 14:13), a name by which some Jews are called even today. But Hebrew is the language of the Jewish people. There is no such thing as a Hebrew race or a Hebrew people.

    Abraham begat Isaac by Sarah, his Chaldean wife who was also his half-sister (Gen. 20:11-12), and Ishmael by Hagar, an African woman who was the daughter of an Egyptian-Ethiopian Pharaoh. Ishmael, Abraham’s firstborn, is acknowledged as the father of all Arabs, whereas Isaac is considered the father of all Jews. Ishmael’s firstborn son was named Kedar, which means, “black-skinned.”

    Our Biblical history is the history of Abraham, Ishmael and Kedar; the history of ancient Egypt and the Egyptian-Ethiopian Pharaohs. “Ethiopia” is a Greek word, meaning, “land of the burnt faces.” The original name of the country was “Abyssinia,” from which the English word “abyss” is derived. The word “abyss” means “a deep, dark hole.” Our history is the history of the people who were already living on the African continent when the stranger came. The first stranger was the Jew, the first of the mixed people. Then came the Gentile, or Caucasian. Subsequently, his story became history, and my story became a mystery…

    Now I understand why the Arab is considered mixed because of how Abraham was of one race and Hagar was of another.

    But why are the Jews considered mixed, and what were they mixed with?


    I also agree that "Gentile" was just another term for white people, because even if we read the bible the word wasn't used for Egyptians and Ethiopians.

    Salaam aqi. The Jews are a mixture of ALL the races, and therefore a hybrid people that cannot be classified as a race. This is the reason why the actual origin of the Jews is unknown, even to this day. The noted 19th-century theosophist Helena Blavatsky, in her famous book, Isis Unveiled, states the following:

    “To the present moment, in spite of all controversies and researches, history and science remains as much as ever in the dark as to the origin of the Jews. They may be as well the exiled Tchandalas of old India...or the ‘bricklayers’ mentioned by Manu as the Phoenicians of Herodotus...or the Hyksos of Josephus...or the descendants of the Pali shepherds...or a mixture of all of these. The Bible names the Tyrians as a kindred people and claims dominion over them. Yet whatever they may have been, they became a hybrid people not long after Moses, as the Bible shows them freely intermarrying not only with the Canaanites, but with every other nation or race they came in contact with.”

    (H.P. Blavatsky, Isis Unveiled, vol. II, pp. 438-439)

    Blavatsky’s statement further corroborates the little-known fact that the Jews are not a race, but a people...

    Undoubtedly the Israelites would have had to be thoroughly mixed with Black also after 400 years of living in Egypt.

    The origins of the Hyksos is unclear, but they were probably from Palestine and Syria. Evidence clearly indicates that they were a Semitic people, with a nomadic lifestyle. Although Josephus thought the word "hyksos" was derived from the words "hyk," meaning "king" and "sos," meaning "shepherd," - thus "shepherd kings" - we now know that the word "hyksos" is derived from the Egyptian words "hekau," meaning "rulers" and "khaswt," meaning "foreign hill countries." The Egyptians had used the term since the Middle Kingdom to describe the nomadic chieftains on their northeastern border.

    How is it that only the "Gentile" offspring derived from Adam and Eve; when the Bible speaks of Adam being the first human on earth? ( Genesis 1:26,27) And the fall of all mankind was based upon Adam's and disobedience?

    All humans are the offspring of Adam and Eve, whom, we are told, were the first human beings on Earth. The Gentiles of the Bible were the offspring of the children of Adam and Eve who wandered north, into Europe and Asia...
