Foundation Lalibela Commonunity working in Rotterdam. This is how Foundation Lalibela raises funds to support relief efforts in Ethiopia.
Soualiga Youth is merged with Lalibela Commonunity operating in Rotterdam and Ethiopia.
This is to certify that Soualiga Youth is now resident in Rotterdam. Out of Foundation Soualiga Youth foundation, Lalibela was formed by Bernardo Bailey and Ivan Richardson+. From now into the foreseeable future, I will highlight the work of Foundation Lalibela which is inextricably linked to Soualiga Youth since they are one and the same. Foundation Laliobela has done and is still doing, vital work here in Rotterdam for over 20 years. Foundation Lalibela

Foundation Lalibela has been supporting Ethiopians in Ethiopia since 2011 with financial assistance and the purchasing of medicine and dry goods to aid communities, families, and individuals there in Ethiopia. Recently the war in Tigray (northern Ethiopia), comprising ethno-regional militias, the Federal Government, and the Eritrean military has garnered the attention of foreign governments and NGO’ssince 2020. Foundation Lalibela – has been involved in the relief effort and I will – do several post’s about – that in the future. This is a new epoch and era in the life of this Blog, more posts will follow expounding on our work in Ethiopia and the Caribbean. Blessed love.
Ancient Babylonia and Sun God Worship.

All of the places mentioned were in ancient times still joined to the continent of Alkebulan Africa.
Mesopotamia, [Greek- between two rivers], so named because of its strategic location between the Tigres and the Euphrates rivers.
The land of Assyria takes its name from one of their ancient kings called Asshur.
Ge: 10:11: Out of that, land went forth Asshur, and builded Nineveh, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah,
Ge: 10:12: And Resen between Nineveh and Calah: the same is a great city.
Ge: 10:13: And Mizraim begat Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and Naphtuhim,
Ge: 10:14: And Pathrusim, and Casluhim, (out of whom came Philistim,) and Caphtorim.

The above map shows the Mesopotamian kingdom in green, the center lay in the uppermost portions.
Image: This relief is of Sargon II of Assyria, [722-705back], with one of his subjects.
The Mesopotamian king Sargon c.a. [2384-2340] BCE expanded his empire to include Syria, Cilicia, Assyria, and Elam.
Image: This painting is of the imperial palace of Sargon II in the city of Nineveh.
The city was at one time the capital of Assyria, situated on the east bank of the Tigris river, opposite Mosul in Iraq. Sargon II (722-705 B.C.) ruled for a period from Nineveh.
Sennacherib 705-681 B.C. succeeded Sargon he also made Nineveh his royal city.
Sennacherib‘s youngest son and successor Esarhaddon 681-669 B.C. built a palace at Nineveh, in spite of his efforts at Nineveh Esarhaddon focused his energies on rebuilding Babylon. In 612 Nineveh was destroyed by the Babylonians and their Mede and Scythian allies. Zephaniah (2:13-15), Zep: 2:13: And he will stretch out his hand against the north, and destroy Assyria; and will make Nineveh a desolation, and dry like a wilderness.
Zep: 2:14: And flocks shall lie down in the midst of her, all the beasts of the nations: both the cormorant and the bittern shall lodge in the upper lintels of it; their voice shall sing in the windows; desolation shall be in the thresholds: for he shall uncover the cedar work.
Zep: 2:15: This is the rejoicing city that dwelt carelessly, that said in her heart, I am, and there is none beside me: how is she become desolation, a place for beasts to lie down in! Everyone that passeth by her shall hiss, and wag his hand. And in Nahum in its entirety specifically, Na: 2:6: The gates of the rivers shall be opened, and the palace shall be dissolved. The above scripture is an exact account of how Nineveh was destroyed.
Na: 2:7: And Huzzab shall be led away captive, she shall be brought up, and her maids shall lead her as with the voice of doves, tabering upon their breasts.
Na: 2:8: But Nineveh is of old like a pool of water: yet they shall flee away. Stand, stand, shall they cry; but none shall look back. The land of Assyria takes its name from one of their ancient gods called Assur.
The Assyrian king Assoernasirpal II.
The oldest remains unearthed stem from the Third Millennium B.C. they were unearthed in the Ishtar temple.
In ancient history, we will read that Ur of the Chaldea where Abraham came from was in fact the conquerors of the Assyrians who were a satellite of Ur.
Let us examine Ur, one of the most important cities of ancient Mesopotamia located on the Western Bank of the lower falls of the Euphrates river. Some very illuminating finds were unearthed in (Tel Muqayyir) modern Iraq.
From the data thus far gathered we can see a pattern of development since Ishtar was the deity worshipped by the Assyrians who were a satellite at many points in the history of the Babylonians who were as per their own records descendants of Nimrod.
The same Nimrod of the Bible, whose mother Serimaris or Astarte was called the Queen of Heaven, or the mother of Heaven.
Serimaris and Nimrod correlate to Isis and Horus of the Kemitians (Egyptians).
Also according to archeological evidence, Babylon is one of the first ancient civilizations it is also the place, where the two rivers the Tigris and the Euphrates meet.
The Babylonian king called Hammurabi wrote the Code of Hammurabi or Laws of
Image: Hammurabi receives the Sacred Scrolls containing the laws from the Sun God Shamash.
Right above; Shamash attacks the Chaos monster, with bolts of lightning.
The Sun God Shamash had the same attributes as the Kemitian Sun god Rah.
The Laws of Hammurabi correlated closely to the ―Medu Netcher‖ of the Kemitians also called Maat (moral laws) the Babylonians as was previously indicated were at certain points in their history conquered by the Egyptians, who in turn foisted their culture onto the conquered people hence the direct correlation of religious thought and development.
One key factor of utmost importance is the development of Algebra by the Kemitians. The science of Algebra was introduced by the Kemitians to the rest of the world. With the knowledge of Algebra, massive mathematically accurate pyramids were constructed. The Babylonians were taught the science of Algebra, this teaching came about as a result of the Babylonians being conquered by the Kemitians. The Arabs as a result of the intermingling of ethnic groups and wars of conquest in later history became, as their Babylonian predecessors the custodians of the science of Algebra thanks to the Kemitians. the Greeks, whom Heroditus chronicled were also recipients of the wisdom of the Kemitians by way of the Phoenicians also a people subjugated in history by the Egyptians, and later the Europeans received their education, again through the conquest of the Greeks who passed on to them this ancient Egyptian science that we call Algebra today.
Above Orion fighting the bull Taurus the hero-hunter aesthetic is found in most cultures again pointing to an original source for the epics and myths of certain ancient cultures.
The Ishtar Gate. Nebuchadnezzar built this gate in honor of the fertility goddess Ishtar, who was symbolic of the mother and wife of Nimrod or Tammuz.
The earliest inhabitants of Iraq were descended from Tammuz or Dammuzi also pronounced Damu‖ which is an ancient Mesopotamian word meaning Son of the Blood. Interestingly
enough the word Damu is also Swahili for Blood denoting again a commonality in language and symbolism in the cultures of the continent.
These religious cultures were all tantric which means that they hearkened on certain particular methods to gain contact with the particular deity or god‘s/goddesses that their culture revered.
The premise of this work is that those so-called gods and goddesses were in fact demonic entities and we have already exhaustively examined literature from outside of the bible to bear up our points here, we will give accounts of certain Hieroglyphs of the examined cultures that will serve to illuminate our points.
The Enuma Elish. Center the complete Rosetta Stone (British Museum photo). A screenshot from National Geographic‘s hieroglyph translator shows what the glyphs look like.
Above right is an example of Mesopotamian Hieroglyphs. The Kemitians Egyptians‖ were the originators of Hieroglyphic writing as a means of communication, through conquest they spread their culture to the surrounding regions. Some claim that the Sumer empire predated that of the Egyptians, if one is referring to the later interbreeding of the original inhabitants of Kemit with their conquered vassals and the later marauding Hyksos and Haribu peoples, then the Sumer empire predated them yes.
Now if one were to examine the culture of the original Kemitians, based on unearthed archeological evidence. We would then see an unmixed group of pure Nubian i.e. (black men) stock, and it is these people who were the originators of the art of communication called Hieroglyphs. The art was developed in keeping with their belief of sacral kingship, the king was literally a representative of Rah or god.―Pharaoh‖ was a god on earth and gods cannot die, they only transition from the temporal, or earthly plane of existence in order to occupy the spiritual plane hereby becoming one with deity, and attaining the perfection 360 degrees of entirety, called universal consciousness or oneness.
In creating an account of their words, and deeds through the Hieroglyphs or Medu Nechter they were deified for eternity as future generations would have an account of them preserved in stone.
This is the teaching that Buddhism sprang from, as was already shown the Dravidians a people originating in the Delta region, were the people that introduced Tantricism into India, including the practice of the consumption of Cannabis Sativa as a form of spiritual enlightenment. From India Tantricism spread throughout the Fareast and the orient.
The Dravidians Pre-Aryan Indus Civilization.

This map shows the close proximity of India, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and China to the Indus River.
I will like to examine here the language called Sanskrit the Indo-Iranian language also called an Indo-European language.
This correlates to statements made in this work about a priestly class of Brahmin co-
opting the Dravidian teachings and creating their own peculiar brand of paganism.
The Brahmin are called Aryans, Aryans are a Caucasoid people, Europeans.
Here is more proof of the Hindu Kush valley being a place where Baalism came to India from the Middle East via Pakistan and Afghanistan. The Indus is a river in South Asia. It has a 3000 km stream area the following names of countries and mountains that follow are ll, or are either in its direct path or the Indus circumnavigates or flows from either of them.
These are the following names of mountains, countries, and even bodies of water they are as follows, Himalayas, West Tibet, Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan, Karachi, The Arabic Sea, Sutlej, Sukkor, Karakoram, and Hindukush.
In order to understand the living conditions of early man, their lifestyle and belief systems must be studied.
A river in anciency was a source of wealth to those who were fortunate enough to be living in its immediate vicinity.
Take for instance Egyptian high culture and the Nubian high culture.
The development of high culture in the ancient world always occurred around the areas that were fertile this means that a vast river network would have been the contributing factor to the sustained development of high culture. Therefore given the evidence on our map we have conclusive proof of such a claim take note of the places on your map that the Indus river surrounds China, Tibet, India, Iran, Iraq, etc. all these countries in the ancient world were
known to have developed a very high culture and what is called a civilized way of living meaning they were exposed to education, they had an existing government some were ruled by kings others were ruled by a priestly class all these developments were made sustainable by direct access to water.
Water and the irrigation of canals and viaducts for the betterment of crops and sustenance of cattle and other livestock made it possible for the continued preservation and development of their culture and the preservation of their various monarchies.
We have today at our disposal maps that show that the river the Indus connects to all the countries indicated above this connection made it possible for men to travel by seafaring vessels, from one continent to the other today we do this by plane because of the advanced technology available.
Sometimes people traveled to other countries for purposes of war as in the case of the Dravidians being conquered by their lighter-skinned Aryan traducers.
In other periods people traveled for purposes of trade or for educational purposes or simply to escape religious or political tyranny, it is within this inter-cultural travel that ideas and schools of thought were exchanged adapted, and abandoned by one group of people or from one culture to the next.
The fertility of the countries in the regions on the map previously mentioned, was a result, of their close proximity, to the Hindu Kush River. Now has it dawned on you the reader why this work can set forth empirically the assertion, that all these countries got their religious practices from the ancient Phoenicians and Babylonians which countries are today Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, and Afghanistan.
True scholarship, has the ability to bear up its claims outside of the narrow scope of its core literature, my core literature being in this case the bible. I have ventured far outside the bible and yet my claims are borne up, by scripture not the other way around. My work cannot bear up scripture the bible is the direct words and laws of God my claim to this work is rooted in a biblical background, not in secularism.
The readers who are well-read and are familiar with the works of Joseph Ben Jochannan and Cheik Anta Diop will be able to comprehend the factual evidence presented herein.
The mission of this work, as was stated previously, is to introduce Jesus in a different light and at the same time, destroy falsehoods and fables, surrounding him and his ministry.
The Karakoram Mountain, is a glacial tributary of the Indus Kush River, as can be seen the Indus Kush, encompasses vast regions in Asia it is from these regions that the cult practices of Baalism found their way into India and from India, they were spread by the emissary of paganism Gautama Buddha.
Afghanistan along with Pakistan, Iran, and Iraq all belonged at one time either to the Babylonian kings or to the Phoenician kings. In scripture, Jezebel was described, as a Phoenician queen, the goddess of the Phoenicians was Diana/Ashtoreth.
The Khyber pass is above on the map, written in white.
Dravidian dark-skinned inhabitants of India, the languages that certain Dravidians speak, include Tamil, Telugu, and Kanarees. The script on the right of this page is Sanskrit, the most ancient form of writing known to these people . These people are some of the earliest inhabitants, of India, they are a matrilineal people, meaning inheritance is ascertained according to the line of the mother not unlike that practiced by many Africans throughout the continent.
Many of their deities are also of the female sex, it was these people who brought the tantric practices now famous in India, to India. The Chakra, The Wheel of Righteousness: in the Indian flag. The wheel of Ashoka) is a depiction of the Dharmachakra, (see Dharma Chakra), the Wheel of Dharma (Sanskrit: Chakra means wheel). The wheel has 24 spokes, which represent the 12 Laws of Dependent Origination and the 12 Laws of Dependent Termination. What is referred to as Hinduism came from them; they are distinct from the Indo-Aryan people, who now predominate in India. The painting above speaks volumes, it portrays Rama, (the blue color of Rama signifies he is an Avatar of Vishnu), Sita, Laksmana, and a demon Suruphnaka with her nose severed; here the demon looks like a Dalit. The Brahmin produced this painting, and the subjugation of all of the darker-skinned Indians began to be, institutionalized, within Hinduism. Through these types of portrayals the untouchables, almost exclusively look like the devil in the painting above.
Above are photos of people of the Cham civilization in Vietnam. The Cham exists today in Vietnam.
A pre-modern Buddha statue in Vietnam, note its ‘negroid’, characteristics.
Above the head of another pre-modern Buddha in the same area.
The photos above are of early Buddhas in India, Nepal, and China. Some historians and archaeologists have found a pronounced Dravidian or Cham/Kham (The Cham are the indigenous inhabitants of Vietnam), presence in all of the earliest civilizations of the countries mentioned above. Their findings lend credence to the claims made in this book that the earliest religions of man all have a single origin.
Descendants of the black-skinned Dravidians in modern India, are as black as any African and darker than most descendants of Africans in the Diaspora. The photos to the left are of some young Dalit women in Orissa India.
It is from these countries in ancient history from whence the Dravidians emerged bringing with them their cultic practices.
The Aryans co-opted their religious practices after having conquered and subjugated them the Aryans developed Brahmanism out of this school of thought came Buddhism and later Hinduism.
Above a map of modern India showing Orissa the area densely populated by the Bondo people, a people who according to their own oral history came to India from Africa.
Above a Bondo woman in Orissa province.
The Dravidian descendants in India speak a number of languages like Tamil, Telugu, Kannadigas, and a few not mentioned here. The revolutionary Tamil Tigers in Sri Lanka are direct descendants of Dravidians. Bondo women, from the Orissa province in India, with their characteristically dark skin and broad noses.
The Indo-Aryans are all of the Brahmin (merchant class their religious language is still officially Sanskrit.
Afghanistan, Pakistan, China, and India are clearly identifiable on the above-shown map.
Also, the Hindu Kush glacial tributary of the Indus River can be seen.
As I indicated earlier, in the region of Nepal Buddhism spread, through the efforts of Siddhartha Gautama (c.a. 560-480 b.c.e.). The earliest depictions of Buddha strongly resemble the Dravidian and Bondo people, again pointing to a non-Aryan people, as the original inhabitants of the Indian sub-continent.
Dalits in Nepal.
Above an early Thai Buddha from around 800 b.c., with the characteristic broad nose and thick lips, usually associated with the people shown above. The evidence points to a dark-skinned people having been the indigenous inhabitants of the eastern nations including China.
