Between Jonathan Versus Buhari - Here Is A President Who Destroyed PDP And Almost Destroyed Nigeria By Festus Keyamo Posted by Announcer January 18 - in Opinions - 72 views This is a season of hire-wired deceits, misinformation, campaign of calumny Read more ... and spewing of outright falsehood and lies – all to hoodwink and deceive ordinary and gullible Nigerians for their votes. I am not worried about these antics of the politicians. It is their way. For them, their business is politics and their politics is business. No scruple. My real worry is that many Nigerians who are the elites can see through some of these outright falsehoods but have decided to sit on fence and keep an embarrassing silence. They forget that millions of ordinary Nigerians who are confused and hoodwinked by these falsehoods and who do not have access to facts depend on their voices and guidance to make their choices. This is, therefore, a message directed at those silent Nigerian elites who should speak up at this time. For me, I have decided that enough is enough. This is the time to speak up. Unfortunately, many of our elites do not want to speak up now because they do not want to be caught on the wrong side of any government in the next four years; they prefer to play safe, not wanting to be tarred with the brush of partisanship. But, I ask: what is wrong with partisanship in a country where you and your children have a huge stake? What is wrong in speaking up and standing up for what your conscience tells you is the right thing to do? What is wrong in being caught on the wrong side of the government in the next four years, if only you would be caught on the right side of posterity? Except for a few class of persons like INEC officials, security agencies and those on the Bench, every other Nigerian has a duty - yes, a duty - to speak up now for our country, and to come down from that fence on which they are sitting regarding the 2015 general elections. Those elites who do not speak up now for fear of being branded partisan and losing face upon defeat are enemies of the people who are looking up to them for guidance. My message to those silent elites today is that whilst they are sitting on the fence, people are being killed like flies in some parts of the country on a daily basis; whilst we are on that fence, our foreign reserves are going down, corruption is growing like cancer, poverty is growing even in the face of dubious economic theories and figures, and we continue to live without adequate power supply. Yet, those who should speak truth to power are sitting on the fence in anticipation of personal gains. I am sorry, but today I have come down from that fence because my buttocks are already hurting from sitting on it. Do not forget that I am from the Niger-Delta region and all my close friends and associates are the main supporters and aides of Mr. President. Two or three Governors who are either my former classmates or colleagues are the main backers of Mr. President. It is so easy, so convenient and so seemingly logical for me to get into that political mix and forget about the good of my country for personal gains. The disgusting message we hear all over the streets of that region every day at this time - promoted by the hirelings of the President – is that Goodluck Jonathan is “our son”, so we have no choice but to support him. In fact, I see some of my “brothers” from the Niger Delta region these days strutting all over the place, denigrating people from other regions. It is typical of what the Yorubas call “omo oju ori ola ri” (a person whose eyes have not seen wealth before). But the question I ask those who tell me such nonsense and behave in such a manner is that, after the next four years, what is next for us? Is our entire future and that of our children dependent on a South-South President for the next four years? Kindly note that in getting down from the fence and speaking up at this critical time, I do not mind if you speak up for Goodluck Jonathan. Yes, you have a right to do so as a Nigerian. But, as an elite, your stand must be known so that when the massacres continue because of cluelessness, when the unrestrained stealing of our public resources continue, when darkness continues to befall the nation because of lack of power, it is important we all remember those who betrayed their conscience and the people because of ethnicity and self-aggrandisement and for posterity to record it as such. We have a President who has no single appetite to fight corruption – yes, none. Imagine a campaign that is dominated by the theme of corruption, yet the President has decided to appoint a person facing trial for money-laundering as his Director of Media and Publicity. If nobody would say it, I will say it because I am the one prosecuting the fellow in court and the case has been adjourned to February 23 and 24 for trial. Part of the lies told is that the fellow has been freed whereas some of the counts in the Charge were just struck out and the court held that he has a case to answer on some other counts. Yet nobody is asking the President these hard questions. The President only mouths anti-corruption. The other day (December 23rd, 2014, I think) the President said he would like to erect a Hall of Shame for Nigerians who engage in corrupt and unwholesome activities that bring the country to disrepute. But he was the same person who brought a convicted criminal, Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, out of the Hall of Shame to the Hall of Fame by misusing his power of Prerogative of Mercy when he granted pardon to this self-confessed ex-convict. Imagine the pain, the efforts and resources that go into securing a single conviction for corruption in this our clime. Yet, the President decided to spoil the party for anti-corruption campaigners. On top of that, he displayed corruption within corruption by selective pardon when the likes of Tarfa Balogun, Lucky Igbinedion and others who were convicted about the same period did not enjoy his Presidential pardon. Yet nobody is asking these hard questions on the campaign trail. The funny thing is that, nearly six years into his tenure as President, Goodluck Jonathan said the other day that he is just coming up with a plan to tackle corruption!! Haba, Jona ! To add insult to injury, President Goodluck Jonathan decided to tackle the corruption of stealing of our resources in the high seas by empowering small-time crooks and criminals to police our waterways. This is because he has no idea as to how to revamp, re-organise and re-invigorate the Nigeria Navy to perform its constitutional duty. These days, it is an eyesore to see our military chiefs and officers kowtow to these empowered small-time crooks and criminals for appointment and promotions and other privileges. The disaster about this initiative of empowerment of crooks and criminals is that crude oil theft has never been so high, so rampant in the annals of this country than it is now. Why? Because the President has put a rat as a watchman over a morsel of fish. It is sad to say, but the President, by his actions, has shown no spine, no appetite, no nerve to fight corruption. He just continues to sink into an abyss of moral debauchery. The other tragedy of this President is that, even as he is on the campaign trail, in the last one month, the omnipresent insurgents have attacked towns like Baga, Damaturu, Biu, Askira-Uba, Konduga, Marte and Gombe. Even as we speak, the Boko Haram insurgents are in total control of the whole of Borno State except Maiduguri, Monguno, Dikwa, Konduga and Biu. The insurgents are in total control of towns like Baga, Bama, Gwoza and Banki. Before Goodluck Jonathan’s administration, Boko Haram was nothing but a rag-tag group of extremists living in enclaves like Sambisa, while our proud military boys patrolled the towns. Now, under Jonathan, the reverse is the case. Our military boys are now in enclaves while Boko Haram patrol our towns. Is it not shocking that insurgents have a free reign to enter cities, abduct young girls like in Chibok, burn houses like in Baga, slaughter people for hours like in Konduga, Gwoza etc, yet our military men are nowhere to be found and they do not even give hot pursuit to the retreating insurgents? What is really going on? One obvious flaw is that our President has lost control of the military and the top hierarchy of the military is merely feeding fat on this unfortunate situation and the President seems to be totally helpless in the face of this. The only response the President and his handlers can proffer is to hide this glaring and crass incompetence under political gymnastics; they blame the opposition on the one hand and in the same breath, they say it is a world-wide trend and Nigeria is just having its fair share of a global malaise. Is this true? As President, you are the Commander-In-Chief. If you have evidence against the opposition, just come out with it and arrest the ring-leaders. Do not cry like a baby as Commander-in-Chief. Deal with the situation. That is why you occupy that seat. Till date, no single evidence has been produced against any of the opposition leaders linking them with the insurgency. Rather, what we see is a President who is supposedly bent on fighting insurgency but who is wining and dining with someone who has been directly linked with sponsoring the insurgents and even traveling with such a person to Chad at a time when the State Security Services officially invited that person to answer questions relating to the insurgency. Another calamity and embarrassment is that our President, his Service Chiefs and security advisers were all led into wasting public funds by entering into a phantom cease-fire deal with fake Boko Haram leaders that left them with bloodied noses. Not to also mention the short-lived public celebration of the supposed killing of the Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, by the President and his security team, only for the outlaw to appear in subsequent videos posted online, taunting the Nigerian government. Any four more years of a Jonathan Presidency can only lead to more carnage by the insurgents. He just does not have the requisite capacity to tackle this problem of insecurity. The truth must be told. Yet you hear the President say that the nation will appreciate him better after he has left office. I am sorry, but we have seen enough bloodshed and incompetence in the last six years to know there is nothing more to expect the next four years and we have seen enough to do an assessment right now and not in the future. In all his campaign tours, the President is already sounding like a broken record. He says he has made the rails to function again. He mentioned this so much that you imagine that he was primarily elected to revive a few train lines. It sounds very funny when you hear such things, whereas the primary duty of government is the protection of lives and properties. If that primary duty fails, then the government has failed. It is like an undergraduate hoping to be promoted to the next level by barely scraping through the ‘electives’ and failing the core courses. It will never happen. So, is the President providing train coaches to be transporting the dead bodies from the North to the South? Are the trains to be occupied by living human beings or dead human beings? Make no mistake about it, like the President always says, it is true that we have a rise of terrorism around the world. But, we have all seen how governments around the world respond quickly and decisively to any attempt for terror to rear its ugly head within their society and how they quickly crush it. We saw it happen in the United States after 9/11; we saw it happen in Britain after the July 7, 2005 bus bombing; in the last few days, we have seen it happen in France and in Belgium. In all these cases, all attempts were nipped in the bud. Even, here in Nigeria, previous governments have nipped insurgency in the bud. The ONLY government that has allowed it to fester, germinate and grow into a full-blown war leading to a successful secession of some parts of the country is that of President Goodluck Jonathan. It is so bad that hardly a day passes by without reports of one insurgent activity or the other leading to loss of lives and limbs. The President is also quick to mention that his administration has made the Nigerian economy the number one in Africa. He forgot to mention two things, though; one, that some of the major sectors of the Nigerian economy, that is, the telecom sector, financial services and the Nollywood industry that were taken into account to re-base the economy were sectors not created or grown by his government. Secondly, he forgot to mention that the so-called re-basing has no impact at all on the ordinary Nigerian as the 2014 World Bank Survey still shows that Nigeria is ranked third among world top five poorest countries with sixty-one percent (61%) of its citizens living below $1.25 dollar per day. No government can boast of any economic growth or theory that does not have a direct impact on the lives of its ordinary citizens. It is like a father coming home to announce and jubilate about a pay rise and promotion at workplace, yet the wife and children cannot eat or live better many months later. The Nigerian people have tolerated too much and taken too much battering from the PDP-led Federal Government since 1999. Under the Jonathan Government, the situation in the country has sunk to an all-time low, except for the few benefitting directly from the government. They are blind to criticism and blind to healthy opposition. They hurl abuses at anyone who dares to point out these acts of maladministration. In saner societies, the President will not be allowed to campaign in many parts of the country. The people will rise against him and chase his convoy away. The clear alternative to this monumental mess is the person of General Muhammadu Buhari. Let us be clear that Buhari does not present the total package Nigerians want at this time. He is human, he is not perfect. But at this point in our history, at this time, at this moment, he presents the only viable option and avenue for the people to vent their frustrations and anger against an inept and clueless Federal Government. He represents the rallying point for the frustrated and teeming masses of our people. He reminds me of MKO Abiola (with some of his imperfections) who became the rallying point in the struggle against military rule. That is the change we are talking about. It is not a change from imperfection to perfection. It is a change from hopelessness and cluelessness to some hope and to some expectations. All the personal attacks on the person of Buhari in the last few weeks have only convinced me that he is the best available option at this time. Anyone on the weaker side in any argument always resorts to personal abuses and attacks. Have you noticed that on corruption, the only accusation against Buhari is that, he was too high-handed in fighting corruption in the past? In other words, nobody can/has accused him of lacking the courage, zeal and will to fight corruption. On the other hand, the President eats, sleeps and wakes up with corruption. In one of his famous interviews, he did not even see stealing as corruption. That is why he does not see the point why he should not appoint a person standing trial for corruption as his Director of Media and Publicity. He just does not care. So, Nigerians, we must decide what we want. When Buhari fought corruption and was supposedly high-handed, he was ruling with Decrees. Now, he has the Constitution, the National Assembly, and the Judiciary without ouster clauses to guide him. It is therefore only an idiot that will believe the propaganda that he would throw everyone suspected of corruption into jail. I feel so sorry at times for the gullible masses of this country who fall for such cheap propaganda. But it is his type of appetite and revulsion against corruption that we so dearly need at this time. You may say whatever you like about Buhari, but in terms of the character, the steel, the competence to lead the nation out of this period of insurgency, nobody can compare a Goodluck Jonathan to a General Buhari. Just imagine the Service Chiefs (who were probably in secondary school when Buhari and others fought the Civil War) sitting in front of Buhari to brief him about the situation in the North East, and attempting to mislead him about movements of artillery, brigades or troops and, the strategy against the enemy! The attack on Buhari’s certificate is most unfortunate. Only fools can be deceived that a sworn affidavit in place of a certificate that you cannot readily produce is not sufficient for certain purposes. What is important is that the school(s) and dates are mentioned in such affidavits which can be subject to verification. But unfortunately the President’s team has carried on as if leadership is a function of academic degrees and qualifications. This is so sad. Leadership is a divine quality, almost always bestowed at infancy so much so that even in primary schools, we see traits of leadership amongst pupils. If it were not so, then there would be no need for elections. We should just look for the most qualified professor in our Ivory Towers and make him President because that would be the best material for President. Besides, what moral right has Jonathan got to discuss Buhari’s certificate when I have since informed him that his Comptroller-General of Customs, Alhaji Abdullahi Dikko forged all his certificates, yet the President has not even ordered a simple investigation into the matter. He has turned a willful blind eye to the issue. The orchestration of the age of Buhari is just another mischief, symptomatic of the weaker side the President’s team find themselves in the argument. Agility and strength and good health is not exactly a function of age. Yar’Adua did not die in power because he was an old man. Abacha did not die in power because he was an old man. Obasanjo ruled until he was seventy (70) years and it is the same set of PDP big wigs that are now criticizing the age of Buhari that were promoting and supporting the third-term bid of Obasanjo that would have taken him to, perhaps, seventy-eight (78) years as President. Today, Obasanjo still jumps about at nearly eighty (80) years or perhaps more. Professor Wole Soyinka, at over eighty (80) years, still travels everywhere, delivering lectures. The relevant question here is that, is the age more important than the character or the character more important than the age? For those who are Christians, remember that the Bible says in Proverbs 16:31 that grey-headedness is a crown of beauty if found in the ways of righteousness. It is idiotic to deride an elderly person who is still agile and upright in character, instead of us praying that we live up to that age and we are blessed with such strength at such an age. During the Second Republic, the South-West and South-East massively voted for Awolowo and Azikiwe respectively who were both over seventy (70) years old, yet nobody raised an eyebrow. Finally, this is not the time to adopt the herd mentality by joining the so-called “winning train” because the ruling party is always expected to rig elections in its favour. What we are witnessing with the large followership of Buhari is a revolution, a mass movement, a display of anger by the people against Jonathan and his government. This is a time for well-meaning Nigerians, the elites to rise up and speak truth to power, regardless of whose ox is gored. We can halt the slide to Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, etc by our simple votes. We must vote out incompetence, cluelessness and corruption. The epitaph that will be left for the Presidential years of Goodluck Jonathan is this: HERE IS A PRESIDENT WHO DESTROYED PDP AND ALMOST DESTROYED NIGERIA. I have purged my conscience. Now, I can sleep.

Jonathan vs. Buhari: Nigerian elite must not sit on the fence, By Festus Keyamo

Only fools can be deceived that a sworn affidavit in place of a certificate that you cannot readily produce is not sufficient for certain purposes. What is important is that the school(s) and dates are mentioned in such affidavits which can be subject to verification. But unfortunately the President’s team has carried on as if leadership is a function of academic degrees and qualifications. This is so sad. Leadership is a divine quality, almost always bestowed at infancy so much so that even in primary schools, we see traits of leadership amongst pupils. If it were not so, then there would be no need for elections. We should just look for the most qualified professor in our Ivory Towers and make him President because that would be the best material for President. Besides, what moral right has Jonathan got to discuss Buhari’s certificate when I have since informed him that his Comptroller-General of Customs, Alhaji Abdullahi Dikko forged all his certificates, yet the President has not even ordered a simple investigation into the matter. He has turned a willful blind eye to the issue. The orchestration of the age of Buhari is just another mischief, symptomatic of the weaker side the President’s team find themselves in the argument. Agility and strength and good health is not exactly a function of age. Yar’Adua did not die in power because he was an old man. Abacha did not die in power because he was an old man. Obasanjo ruled until he was seventy (70) years and it is the same set of PDP big wigs that are now criticizing the age of Buhari that were promoting and supporting the third-term bid of Obasanjo that would have taken him to, perhaps, seventy-eight (78) years as President. Today, Obasanjo still jumps about at nearly eighty (80) years or perhaps more. Professor Wole Soyinka, at over eighty (80) years, still travels everywhere, delivering lectures. The relevant question here is that, is the age more important than the character or the character more important than the age? For those who are Christians, remember that the Bible says in Proverbs 16:31 that grey- headedness is a crown of beauty if found in the ways of righteousness. It is idiotic to deride an elderly person who is still agile and upright in character, instead of us praying that we live up to that age and we are blessed with such strength at such an age. During the Second Republic, the South-West and South-East massively voted for Awolowo and Azikiwe respectively who were both over seventy (70) years old, yet nobody raised an eyebrow. Finally, this is not the time to adopt the herd mentality by joining the so-called “winning train” because the ruling party is always expected to rig elections in its favour. What we are witnessing with the large followership of Buhari is a revolution, a mass movement, a display of anger by the people against Jonathan and his government. This is a time for well-meaning Nigerians, the elites to rise up and speak truth to power, regardless of whose ox is gored. We can halt the slide to Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, etc by our simple votes. We must vote out incompetence, cluelessness and corruption. The epitaph that will be left for the Presidential years of Goodluck Jonathan is this: HERE IS A PRESIDENT WHO DESTROYED PDP AND ALMOST DESTROYED NIGERIA. I have purged my conscience. Now, I can sleep. FESTUS KEYAMO, ESQ.

USSR: Kvetching, Retching and Resting Tour (Summer '91)
Bear in mind that this was written by an unwitting fifteen-year-old Western xenophobe. I blame the Cold War, the US education system, thinly-veiled attempts at democracy both here and abroad, and my catnaps during the informational meetings. I was se Read more ... nt on this hapless journey by an anonymous teacher who nominated me for a student ambassadorship in a program called People to People; when the letter arrived in our mailbox, it must've sounded like the perfect plan to my parents, who thought that seeing the after-effects of a crumbling communist economy up-close and personal would serve as an antidote to my pig-headed teenage rebellion. My ignorance of the world at large and the USSR in particular up until and during these three weeks will be painfully evident. My only wish is that the lessons I learned had stuck, and that I had done something with them; over twenty years would pass before they really sunk in, and by then it was too late.  June 16-17, traveling: The plane was about 1 1/2 hours late in takeoff. They revved up the engine real good a few times, like we were leaving, but...nothing. I still love that feeling [takeoff]...No mishaps yet, but I've only been on the plane a few hours. Served us okay food, I ate the roast beef and potatoes. Only got about 1/2 hour sleep and vaguely watched "Sleeping With the Enemy" [bit of foreshadowing there]. Did you know that you don't have to pay for headphones if you have ones from your Walkman?...It was dark for about four hours. Talk about jet lag. It's about 4 am but doesn't feel it. I'm ready to go!...I'm in the Copenhagen airport. What I can see is pretty nice. A good-looking guy (I assume from his accent that he was European) just hit on me. Dad was right. Well, not much to say except I'm in Stockholm next...Stockholm is okay, what I can see from this one gate. Some guy is blowing smoke rings for me. I'm in Moscow! The airport is dark and lonely and smells. I can't understand what anyone is saying and my suitcase is so heavy. I'm exhausted and hot. This city is very dreary. All the cars look exactly the same...[At the hotel] we had tongue, blinces, veal patty and noodles for dinner, most of which was cold. I only had one bite of the tongue. I could feel the cow's tastebuds on mine, which grossed me out. Airplane food is better. I'm already starting to feel sick...The rooms are SPARTAN and the bathroom doesn't have modern plumbing. Just as you [my parents] suspected, I really miss home. I'm already starting to look thinner. Well, I'm exhausted. Bye...PS My first night here and what happens? I throw up. Until tomorrow... June 18, Moscow: My sense of time is really warped. I went to bed around nine, but just woke up and it's only 3:30 am. I'm wide awake and can't go back to sleep. Oh, well. Until later...I only slept for thirty more minutes. Today we went on a sightseeing tour around Moscow and visited Red Square and the Kremlin. The cathedrals are huge! But the best part was this evening when we went to the Moscow circus. I took enough pictures already to last a lifetime [and can't find a single one, now]. During the circus I almost fell asleep. I am so exhausted. Thank god I packed food because this is terrible so far. This is an experience I 'll definitely remember...PS There is a loud train right outside, our room is the size of a closet, and the "shower" has no curtain. Nice, huh? [I'm guessing they weren't a necessity, given the water pressure. Or lack thereof.] June 19, Moscow: Today we went to Lenin's tomb. The body looked so fake. I heard somewhere that that is not really where Lenin is buried, but somewhere else. [pre-Google, I gave no guess as to where exactly] The guards standing around him were so still it was eerie. They really seemed to look right through you. And it was cold, surrounded by all that stone slab...We also went to a convent. It was beautiful, but a little boring. Right when we stepped inside it rained so hard it was coming down in sheets. The weather is exactly like Florida in the way the sky cleared up right away...Something I also discovered is that, to Russians, Americans are rich. Russians will discriminate against Americans that way. A little [lacquered] box would be 300 rubles for me, but might have been 5 rubles for another Russian. The black market around here is very evident. Everywhere you go, someone wants to sell you something. [see also: modern marketing / technology] I'm really trying to get a [military] watch [for my dad], but it seems like there's nothing military for sale. [I was puzzled I couldn't find one in a country where "everything must go," and did.] I'm having a good time now. June 20, Tashkent: We are on our way to Tashkent on Aeroflot right now. The plane is really big [a converted cargo], but it isn't that bad. It's quite an experience. The airport, if you want to call it that, was quite old, though. Today we didn't really do anything but get rested. I really needed it. June 21, Tashkent: Today we toured Tashkent. The people live in poverty. All the kids crowded around us asking for anything. These people are really far behind in technology. Tashkent is really nothing but hotels and markets. The food is making me sick. June 22, Tashkent: Today we went to a Pioneer [communist youth?] camp. Everyone was so nice and welcoming. The kids were following us everywhere and giving us little gifts. One girl suddenly came up to me and gave me a string doll [a necklace] that she made. I still haven't taken it off. Then we went swimming in a reservoir. It was in the middle of mountains and it was so blue and clean. I've never been swimming in a clean body of water before! [I was used to the Jersey shore.] June 23, Tashkent: Today we went to the museum about the people of the Uzbec region. It wasn't that interesting. That's all and we're leaving tomorrow. June 24, Irkutsk: All we did today was travel. The planes are freezing. I was wearing jeans and a jacket and I was still cold. Everyone has been sick at least once. I miss American food so much. We are only staying one day in Irkutsk. Day after tomorrow we have to fly again. I hate traveling. I miss the U.S.A. June 25, Irkutsk: We went to Lake Baikal and guess what? It was rainy and foggy and we couldn't see anything! That was the worst. The largest lake in the world and all I got to see was the muddy shoreline. My pictures will all be gray probably. I can't believe that. It's been raining for two days. We're leaving tomorrow morning. I hope the next city is better. We hardly do anything anymore except eat, sleep, throw up or have diarrhea. Sounds like a barrel of laughs. June 26, Alma-Ata: Alma-Ata is very interesting, from what I can tell. It's hot here, though. All we did today was see the sights by bus. I'm so sick of staying in the cities for one day. Aeroflot is a death ride. They don't even cook their food. [I remember receiving something like balut accompanying my in-flight meal, which my seatmate, an Asiatic woman, enthusiastically mimed her desire for, should I unthinkably decline such a delicacy.] Some of the airports are just airstrips. This country is so modern. [Do I detect a note of sarcasm?] June 27, Alma-Ata: Today we went up to the mountains. We saw an ice skating rink but it wasn't open; you can't ice-skate at the end of June, even in the Soviet Union. I tried to climb up the stairs of a nearby dam, but I couldn't finish. I was about three flights from the top, but I just couldn't make it. People who went all the way up told me there were 1,128 steps! But the view you expected wasn't there and the one from three flights down was just as good. I want to come home. June 28, Leningrad: Today we went on a sight-seeing tour of Leningrad (soon to be St. Petersburg again). It's definitely the most beautiful city I've ever seen.* It's almost like Venice, with all the canals. [I've never been to Venice.] Considering it's a European city, that's probably why it's the best place we've been to so far. We also saw St. Isaac's cathedral and went to the top to take pictures. All of the architecture is beautiful. The only problem is no one cares about it or keeps it clean...PS The airport here is modern, has American food (for a price), and they played INXS. June 29, Leningrad: Today we toured Peter Paul fortress. It was interesting to see the jail cells they kept prisoners in [more foreshadowing, with shades of Carthage]. If you got in more trouble than you were in already they locked you in a really dark dungeon. They actually closed us in to see what it would feel like. I wouldn't like to spend much time in there. We also went on a boat tour through the canals, which was pretty neat. I have some great pictures to show everyone. [If only I could find them.] June 30, Tver: Today we took the train to Tver. It was very uncomfortable and one special thing they didn't tell us was that we had three minutes to get everyone and everything off the train, and they don't make any allowances. The people here are great and, yes, I did meet a Russian guy [the son of a diplomat], but, no, I'm not bringing him home. We went to his house and his family was very welcoming. They gave us strawberries, chocolates, cake, tea and cranberry juice [almost all of which were not available to your average Soviet]. It was the best food we've had yet. Afterwards we saw fireworks (it was a holiday) and walked around town. It was the most fun I've had on this trip. July 1, Tver: Today we went on a boat ride on the River Volga. Dima & Vaser, our friends [the sons of nomenklatura we had met the day before], came with us. Afterward we walked around and went to the beach on the Volga, where we weren't allowed to swim. Then we went back to town and saw the monuments that we had already seen earlier, but that's okay, we enjoyed the company. We went to a cafe and had apple juice and some kind of cake that was really good. Then we sat in front of Catherine the Great's palace until it was time for dinner...After dinner we went to Dima's house and had cherries, strawberries, and some kind of pancake with caramel spread. I think it was some sort of crepe. Then we watched Beverly Hills 90210. The actors were speaking in English, but it was dubbed over in Russian. It was really neat because everyone understood and we all laughed when something was funny. Then we went out for a walk and afterward Dani & I went back to our hotel. July 2, Tver: Went out to the country today. We went swimming in the river and jumped off these little sand cliffs. We also had a picnic and baked potatoes over a fire. The only problem was the flies. They were all over the place and they bit, too! After that we went back to the hotel, showered, and ate dinner. In the evening we went to the disco--on a boat! It was really a lot of fun. The boat went down the Volga and there was a dance floor on the deck and a a bar downstairs. They even played some American and English music. Everyone here loves Depeche Mode, INXS, U2, R.E.M., and all my favorite music. It's great! After that Dima, Vaser, Dani & I walked to the hotel and talked (what little we could understand of each other). After a couple hours I went to bed. July 3, Tver & Leningrad: This morning I went to a Russian orthodox church. It was really beautiful. The Russian kids took us up to the altar and I lit a candle. It was kind of embarrassing because I didn't really know what to do and Dima had to show me. We left for the train at 12:00 and it didn't come until 2:30. Then it stopped for a while and we didn't get to Leningrad until about 11:00 pm. July 4, Leningrad: Happy July 4th! Today we went shopping for water and went to the Hermitage museum. It was beautiful, but exhausting! After about an hour it loses its splendor because you're too tired to care. It sure was a sight to see, but we weren't allowed to take any pictures and we had to wear these booties over our shoes like they make you wear in hospitals...After a couple of hours we decided to quit and go back to the hotel. In the evening we had a youth meeting at a Seaman's Club. [!] They were very nice and we exchanged gifts. A strange man asked me to dance and I had to say yes or else I would've felt bad. [misogyny?] So the Russian kids celebrated the 4th with us and the guy I danced with bought me a bottle of champagne. I drank two glasses. Did you know it only costs $3? Which is about 90 rubles, which to them is like $90. Everyone was making fun of me because they thought I was drunk, but I wasn't, don't worry. At ten o'clock we said good night and went back to the hotel. July 5, Leningrad: Today we had the morning free. I washed, packed and slept. In the afternoon we went to the Summer Palace of Peter the Great. It was better than the Hermitage because it had trick fountains that went off when you stepped on a certain place. In the evening we went to a folk singing and dancing show. It was very good, but too long. It lasted about three hours and by the end it was getting tiresome. We went back to the hotel and I fell asleep about 11:30. July 6, Leningrad: Today we went another Pioneer camp. At the one in Tashkent there was some rumor that the people were faking it and that it wasn't always that nice there [to think!], but at this one the kids were able to interact with us more. In the afternoon we went to the main street in Leningrad, Neusky Prospect, where I used the rest of my rubles. I almost got robbed. Two guys came up to me on either side, and one showed me a shawl. With his other hand he started to open the belt bag [let's call it what it was: a fanny pack] that was on my shoulder. So I turned to him and said, "Stop trying to rip me off." He looked at me blankly and the guy whose stand I was at started laughing because I caught the other guy [trying to steal from me]. There were so many black marketeers there it was unbelievable. I tried not to look like an American, but it's hard because you dress better than all of them. When we were walking back to the hotel two guys and a girl came up to us and started talking. The one guy reeked of alcohol. They offered us some beer [considered a "soft drink" in Russia until 2011], but we said no thank you. We thought we were never going to get rid of them until we said we had to go. ["Oh! Well, why didn't you say so?"] The other guy, the not-drunk one, asked us where our hotel was, but I didn't fall for it. He told us he was in the Red Army. I asked him where his uniform was. So he says, "I don't like to wear it." Uh-huh, I thought. It's at home, hanging up in your closet. Next you'll ask if we want to go see it. We said "das vi danya" and left them standing there...At the hotel we had an hour to get changed before our farewell dinner. I really don't want to leave because I really do like Leningrad. At the farewell dinner (at the Hotel Leningrad, which had good food), Mrs. Delp [one of the adult chaperons] made a toast to our guide, Olga, and everyone had wet eyes. It was really sad because she was the nicest Soviet person we met. I thank god for her. She helped us out of a lot of sticky situations, like Tashkent where we had scum[!] harassing us. She helped us to negotiate prices on whatever we wanted to buy. She protected us from the black marketeers that wanted to rob us, or worse. She was always kind and helpful...After dinner we went back and had room check. After room check my friend Dani & I went down to the lobby to say goodbye to some guys we had met, Dima, Alec & Sasha. They explained their life and why they were doing this and how they hated the Communist Party and "Gorbie." They were gentlemen and didn't try any funny business like a lot of the other black marketeers had. They were very interesting people and I know you, Mom, wouldn't approve of me talking to them, but now I know more about what Soviet life is really like, which is why I came here. I'm really going to miss them.........Went back to the room around 4:30 am. Have to get up at seven. Great. July 7, Leningrad & Helsinki: On the train to Helsinki. I hate to say it, but I'm sad. I made so many friends. I want to bring them home to America with me...No problems with customs. All they did was search through everything Mr. Borger [the other adult chaperon] had and nothing for the rest of us. Then they checked the plane for stowaways. Considering how badly Alec wanted to leave the country, I could see why it was necessary. I'd really take them with me if I could. Maybe someday...[To date, 2000-never]...Helsinki is rich! Get this: the taxis are all Mercedes. The food is so good! No more goat's milk! No more moldy bread! No more sushi! [?] I like the USSR, but I hate the food and bathrooms. Dinner at the hotel was delicious. The waitress said we ate much better than the kids going to the Soviet Union. We all laughed because we knew it was true. After dinner I took a hot shower (the second I've had in three weeks--hot, not shower) and then went to the movies with Gene & Muti. I paid for them because, hey, it's our last night. It ended up costing me $25. Sorry about that, Mom and Dad. The movie, Highlander II, was, how shall I say, interesting. [Unimpressed, I'd venture.] After the movie we were hungry again so we got a "pizza Americana." It had ham and pineapple on it, but it was pizza...The city is gorgeous, but everything is so damn expensive. The exchange rate for cash is something like 87 marks. For travelers cheques it's about 55. The rate is good, but inflation is awful. 179 marks for jeans, that's pretty expensive!...I never saw so many blonde, tan people. Speaking of tans, I have none. What I do have are bruises, cuts and big mother mosquito bites...After we walked around Helsinki for a little while we went back to the hotel. I fell right to sleep. In my clothes. July 8, traveling: Going home and I'm really sad about it, to tell the truth...But you'll never guess who I met in the Helsinki airport. B.B. King! We walked into the gate area and saw all this equipment with his name and address all over it. Then he walked right by us. I saw him first and thought, no way. But, sure enough, it was. I got his autograph, a pin and a photograph [none of which I have anymore, sadly]. Then Muti asked him what it was like to play with U2. [I'm glad it wasn't me that asked.] He said they were great to work with and they were really nice guys. What was really funny was that Jon saw him in concert on TV in the hotel last night. None of the other people in the airport recognized him except for a few other Americans. Well, see ya in Newark... Postscript: Thanks for this trip. It was the best I've ever taken.* I'll never forget it. Love, Krista ...[coup d'état].. August 19, 1991: Today is a very bad day in the USSR. Mikhail Gorbachev has been forced out of power and the military and the KGB have taken over. It's one of the most backward movements since glasnost began. Now all they have worked to change is destroyed. I miss Dima. I wonder how he is doing now. Not good, I bet. It's horrible. *In my fifteen long years on the planet. vimeo.com/1715791

The Iceman Inheritance A frightening publication history of Jewish media suppression Now, for the first time in 23 years, there is a new and revised edition of one of the most notorious underground bestsellers in recent North American publishing h Read more ... istory – possibly second only to The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews. The original jacket description of this book was: "Michael Bradley delves back into our glacial past during the last Ice Age in order to find the prehistoric sources of the white race's aggression, racism and sexism. Relying on the researches of Alexander Marshack, Carleton Coon, Konrad Lorenz, S.L. Washburn, Ralph Solecki and others, Bradley offers a persuasive argument that the white race, the Neanderthal-Caucasoids, are more aggressive than other groups because of ancient sexual maladaption. And, in tracing the effects of Caucasian aggression, Bradley offers an uncomfortable and all-too-plausible explanation for the pattern of human history." * * * * * * * * Please buy The Iceman Inheritance and Michael Bradley’s other books from this website only. Michael receives no royalties from pirated editions sold through Amazon and in some bookstores. * * * * * * * * Ironically enough, The Iceman Inheritance was very favourably received after its initial Canadian publication in December 1978. Dr. Judith Posner, an anthropology professor at Toronto’s York University, had written in her Introduction: “The Iceman Inheritance is a worthy model to keep in mind when reviewing the long range of human history, and especially when looking into the future.” Several other anthropologists, sociologists and historians were equally encouraging. All agreed that the argument of The Iceman Inheritance was well worth an airing and objective assessment. The book was immediately excerpted by three major Canadian daily newspapers: the Globe and Mail (Toronto, 2 pages), The Calgary Herald (1 page) and the Ottawa Journal (1 page). About twenty U.S. newspapers also excerpted it, or else wrote long and generally very favourable reviews. The book was seen as a new and valuable insight into the pattern of human history. There were some experts who disagreed with the theory, of course, but two observations were hard to shrug off. First, every single modern political boundary on earth has been drawn or dictated by Caucasians. Second, I provided an anthropological map of “the Iceman’s inheritance” which showed the inexorable Caucasian expansion from 100,000 years ago to now. This made a good TV graphic. I was interviewed by Tom Snyder on NBC’s coast-to-coast “Tomorrow” television talk show (the other guest was Bill Cosby) while the book was being promoted at the annual Convention of the American Anthropological Association held in Los Angeles in 1979. I was invited to give a multi-part presentation to the Princeton University Institute for Advanced Study (Symposium on Alternative Futures). This was covered by CBC Radio’s prestigious “Ideas” series. A major North American publisher, Warner Books (later Times-Warner), bought the mass-market paperback rights in late 1979 and quickly put out an edition that sold 40,000 copies in the first two weeks. Then, in early 1981, someone figured out the implications for Jews in the book’s presentation of evidence… I had never considered this myself because it had been a long time since I had taken my own Jewish origins into any account. I had never even thought about any “Jewish implications” of the book. Neither did the Jewish publisher of the original Canadian edition, Larry Goldstein. And, obviously, Dr. Judith Posner had not thought about any “Jewish implications” either when she wrote an Introduction for The Iceman Inheritance – unless, of course, courageous Judy Posner simply had more affinity with all of humanity than with her own ethnic group. Jews were blandly mentioned on half a page in the 226-page book. After 1981, some bookstores that had formerly carried the book were threatened with boycott and fire-bombing by Jewish pressure groups. Warnings by Jewish anthropologists and complaints by Jewish pressure groups caused Warner Books to drop the book almost instantly, in breach of contract. But my rights to find another publisher were not immediately returned to me as is usually the case in such situations and is also the normal industry practice. Warner Books wanted to co-operate in the strategy of making The Iceman Inheritance totally unavailable to buyers and readers. Two speaking tours by the author were cancelled because the organizers could not guarantee my safety in view of threats of violence by the Jewish Defence League. The seriousness of the situation was demonstrated when a Mier Kahane-inspired extremist tried to stab me on the podium at Kennedy-King College in Chicago To add insult to near-injury, I found that although The Iceman Inheritance was sufficiently provocative for the Jewish media mafia to suppress it... and also to steal it for profit when convenient... I was not to earn income from it. Because of the 1979 anthropological convention in Los Angeles and my appearance on NBC’s “Tomorrow” show with interviewer Tom Snyder and co-guest Bill Cosby (and many other U.S. radio and TV shows), two LA screenwriters heard of the theory. They were inspired to write a movie script called “The Iceman” about a frozen Neanderthal who, on being thawed out by scientists, exhibited aggression and identity problems in the dimension of time. The two writers wrote me a letter in 1981, thanking me not only for their inspiration, but also for the book’s technical anthropology data they were able to include in their screenplay. I learned completely by accident a few months later that Canadian producer-director Norman Jewison had acquired this screenplay and planned to produce “The Iceman” in 1983 at a cost of $11-million. At the time, I was otherwise engaged in the Caribbean trying to help, mostly with my own money and some government assistance, impoverished people in the Third World. I was making inexpensive fishing boats and electricity-producing windmills with the help of the Canadian International Development Agency... see the many articles and Hot Air and Ancient Wonders on this Site. Although Canadians swear by Jewison’s so-called “integrity” and his encouragement of Canadian creators, none of this applied to me when I appealed politely in several letters to these noble qualities supposedly possessed by Norman Jewison. And when this didn’t work, I didn’t have enough time or money to fight Jewison’s expensive LA lawyers effectively. The upshot was that Jewison made the film, released in 1983, but I received no money and not even a screen credit for supplying the entire theme (not the plot, thankfully) of Jewison’s “The Iceman” and supplying most of its research. Banned by Jewish social and financial influence in all the so-called “mainstream” (i.e. “white”) American educational institutions, The Iceman Inheritance was partly suppressed and also, of course, no major publisher would touch it because of both legal complications and Jewish opposition. But because of the stir caused by the approximately 200,000 Warner Books paperbacks that had been sold by 1981, the public’s growing demand for the book was much greater than the supply. This encouraged the production of at least four pirate editions based on Xerox copies of the Warner Books paperback and one pirate edition based on the original Canadian hardcover. These pirated editions dominated the market for a decade while I focused on Third World aid and development projects. Finally, because of the embarrassment caused by these editions (Warner Books’ logo had naturally been Xeroxed along with the text), when the New York Times and Warner Books merged to become Times-Warner, they wrote me a letter saying that they had “no interest” in the book. They denied that they had ever held rights to it and also denied that they had ever even published it! The Warner Books logo had been counterfeited by the pirate publishers, they claimed. Chivalrous, those pirates. But this denial of publication was technically correct, although it was a misleading legalism and a distortion of the common-sense truth. Times-Warner had not published The Iceman Inheritance, Warner Books had published it before the merger. Cute, eh? In spite of this treatment by a Jewish-owned media giant and the Jewish-edited New York Times, I had nonetheless found the time to do some undercover work for the B’nai Brith over these years. I became concerned about “neo-Nazi” groups that were supposedly operating under the guise of “Odinists” – believers in the old Teutonic god, Odin. I had completely by chance stumbled on evidence that these Odinists had possibly killed at least one Jewish woman executive in Toronto (and possibly two others). These deaths had been judged as suicides by the Toronto police. But I investigated the circumstances of these deaths out of my own dangerous sense of curiosity (like the research leading to The Iceman Inheritance). One of the victims had been a friend of mine. I managed to get that case re-opened again as a possible homicide and to have investigations into the two other deaths re-opened as well. These same Odinists in Toronto, I was able to tell the B’nai Brith, were very possibly sending arms to groups in South America and also apparently producing and selling underground “snuff movies” in order to pay for weapons. Snuff movies are films that feature an actual and usually prolonged torture-killing, in this case the victims were mostly Caribbean and South American native girls. Because of my aid projects, contacts and travels to non-touristy destinations in the Caribbean and Central America, the B’nai Brith and the Toronto police asked me to go underground, using my established cover as a Third World development expert (but one with kinky tastes), and to penetrate the Odinist network. I did this from 1981 until 1983, often at considerable risk, reporting directly to Toronto Police Chief, John Wesley “Jack” Ackroyd. I wrote a novel based on this experience called The Valhalla Victims (1983), but withdrew it from submission to publishers at the request of the B’nai Brith. It documented some actual “neo-Nazi” networks much too well and both the B’nai Brith and Israel’s secret service, “the Mossad (I was told)”, were afraid that the novel would push these groups even deeper underground. At that time, there were still some major North American publishers that were not Jewish owned or controlled and I had two book offers for the novel and one film offer. But I complied with the B’nai Brith request. I received a letter of commendation for my undercover research and for not publishing the novel. With the publication rights of The Iceman Inheritance freed up by the Times-Warner merger, Lushena-Kayode Books, a small New York Afro-American publisher, finally did put out a legal and legitimate edition in 1991. But Lushena-Kayode Books could only afford to print a limited number of copies. Besides that, Lushena-Kayode’s edition was 40% defective and I was never paid royalties on any of the print runs. The owner fled to Trinidad at one point where he continues to publish and sell his now-illegal pirate edition over the Internet. This 1981-1991 decade of playing legalisms with the media mafia had not only cost me a great deal of income in royalties lost to pirated editions, but the frequent Jewish telephone threats to maim or murder me between 1981-1991 caused stress that has affected my health. Because of the Lushena-Kayode edition of 1991, The Iceman Inheritance started making news again. I was invited to give lectures at Vanderbilt, Yale, Kennedy-King College (again) and many other American universities and colleges – and the tempo of Jewish threats also increased. But some organizers were so incensed at Jewish terrorist tactics that they were willing to pay for beefed-up security. Dr. Len Jeffries began using The Iceman Inheritance at the City College of New York. All seven top editors of the New York Times were Jewish in 1991 and they hoped to bury Dr. Jeffries with a media campaign of libel and misrepresentation that started on July 20, 1991. This eventually cost the New York Times some $400,000 in damages. Exactly a year later, the New York Times took aim at me and The Iceman Inheritance with a full-page editorial on July 20, 1992 – the now famous (or infamous) “Demagogues and Pseudo- Scholars” – that included not only misquotes, but purely imaginary quotes from The Iceman Inheritance. Now, it is true that almost every prominent and progressive Afro-American professor was swiped at in this article, but it is also true that most of them were using The Iceman Inheritance in their classes. My claim that “Demagogues and Pseudo-Scholars” was aimed primarily at me and the book is borne out by the fact that of all those mentioned in the full-page editorial, only I was invited to write a rebuttal reply. This reply was duly published several weeks later next to a letter by President Marcos of the Philippines. I have not yet looked up the date of my published reply in my disorganized files, but it should not be hard for any serious researcher to discover. I still remember how stunned and hurt I was at the time (July 1992) because of the sudden about-face in a major newspaper’s public editorial judgement of the book and because of the sheer viciousness of the New York Times editorial. Even after Times-Warner’s treatment of me, and the axe-job on Jeffries, I still could not believe that the respected New York Times would stoop to printing false “quotes” from a published book. It would be too easy to check... if any “journalist” with integrity bothered to check, that is. But maybe few journalists, and even fewer Jewish ones, can claim any integrity. I decided not to expend any money in seeking legal redress, as Dr. Len Jeffries had done. First of all, I did not have the income and security afforded by Jeffries’ CCNY tenure and, being a Caucasian myself, I lacked Len Jeffries’ Afro-American support and personal protection infrastructure. Besides, I was devoting all my resources to the development of a new inter-island trading vessel intended for Caricom (the so-called “Caribbean Common Market”). Many Jewish editors in other North American daily newspapers duly followed the New York Times’ unwritten “ethnic” directive of not referring to The Iceman Inheritance ever again and pretending that it didn’t exist. Since July 20,1992, not even Canadian newspapers have mentioned this best selling Canadian-authored book. It had been reliably estimated that The Iceman Inheritance has sold more copies than any other Canadian-authored book except for Anne of Green Gables and (arguably) Farley Mowat’s Sibir. This Canadian silence shows just how deep Jewish influence is in North American media, and it also demonstrates the danger to democratic freedom of speech that this inordinate influence represents. About 35% to 40% of all reporters and editors in North American newspapers are Jewish, and an even higher percentage of producers, story editors and script writers in electronic media are Jewish. All major media in the United States, including newspapers, publishers and movie production, is financially controlled by Jews when it is not actually Jewish-owned. The same is true in Canada. That is why you see so much pro-Jewish, pro-Israeli and anti-Arab propaganda in Hollywood’s so-called “harmless entertainment” – from early summer’s The Return of the Mummy (May 2001) to Leslie Nielsen’s just-released Wrongfully Accused (August 2001). A few years ago, Independence Day was a blatant example of pro-Jewish propaganda and there are too many more Hollywood films that imbed both blatant and subtle pro-Jewish and pro-Israeli bias in the “entertainment.” This includes all of Mel Brooks’ films, for example. Almost all North American network TV newscasters and analyst-commentators are Jewish, which is why the 2000 American presidential election was almost hijacked for Gore-Lieberman. These newscasters, led by CNN, agreed to announce what they knew to be fraudulent “returns” when network television coverage began at 7:00 PM Eastern time. At 7:03 they all announced that Gore-Lieberman had carried crucial Florida – while the polls were still open in the western part of the state in the Central Time Zone. Western Florida’s “panhandle” was acknowledged Bush turf. Many Bush supporters, hearing incorrectly from all major media sources that their candidate had already lost, didn’t bother to vote. In the subsequent Senate investigations of the media’s election coverage in February-March 2001, it transpired that this so-called “mistake” had cost Bush 40,000 votes. But at the time, in the 37-day aftermath of legal struggles for the presidency during most of November and into early December 2000, the media only once mentioned this attempt to manipulate the Florida vote. All major networks instead gave incessant coverage about the “butterfly ballot” in heavily Jewish West Palm Beach County. However… testimony given to the Senate’s investigation of the media’s election coverage during February and March 2001 established that this “butterfly ballot” had been purposefully planted to focus media attention on a heavily Jewish county if, after all, the Florida vote turned out to be close in spite of the media’s “mistake”. Three former Clinton aides also testified to the Senate that several network newscasters pestered outgoing Bill Clinton for presidential pardons during the last days of the Clinton-Gore Administration. Media buried these admissions on back pages when they were mentioned in print at all. No network television news or public affairs program ever even mentioned these pleas for presidential pardons by their own newscasters. There is much more to this attempted Election 2000 coup d’état – for that is exactly what it was – in the United States by Jews, the media and Israel. Thanks to some Afro-American contacts in the offices of the National Security Advisor and State Department, I have heard rumors about how and why the Gore-Lieberman ticket really backed down. Votes and recounts had little to do with it. But enough has been said to show that inordinate Jewish control of media is obviously dangerous for democracy. And Jewish control of North American media is also why you will never see a recap of Israel’s creation, as informative background to Middle East violence, on American television. To get back to my own story and The Iceman Inheritance, I was shocked and hurt by the New York Times editorial of July 20, 1992, but I was also very puzzled. What had I written to cause all this insane anger? My original Canadian publisher, Larry Goldstein of Dorset Publishing Inc., was not only Jewish, but had served in the Negev on an Israeli kibbutz. Dr. Judy Posner was Jewish. Surely, they would have taken issue with any “anti-Semitic” content of The Iceman Inheritance long before it was published? The problem was really that I had always been woefully ignorant about true Jewish origins. And so were most North American Jews. Between 1979-1991, I had been wholly concentrating on development projects in Africa, the Caribbean, South America and Sri Lanka and had had time only to read mostly technical publications and reports. Like most people, I had always thought that “the Jews” had once lived in Palestine, had been expelled by the Romans about AD 70 in the “Diaspora” and had settled in various places, including Central and Eastern Europe. But spurred by the vicious and sometimes violent Jewish reaction to The Iceman Inheritance in 1992, I buckled down to do some serious research about episodes of human history that were a little more recent than the Middle and Upper Paleolithic. And I learned the surprising truth. Only 4.5% of Jews in the world, according to the Jewish Encyclopaedia (the first post-World War II, 1960 edition), could trace their ancestry back to the Holy Land and they are called “Sephardic” Jews from the Hebrew word for Spain, Sepharad. There are very few of them in the United States, but some live in the southern states bordering the Gulf of Mexico. That explained my own Jewish family heritage, which had always puzzled me. I learned, to my surprise, that my family was Sephardic from Louisiana. Many Sephardic Jews presently live in and around the Caribbean where they were the first “Spanish” and “Portuguese” conquistadors and colonists. My Jewish ancestors were thus responsible for the genocide of millions of American Indians and for starting the transatlantic slave trade in Black Africans. Other Sephardic Jews live in Spain, southern France, South America and South Africa. The other 95.5% of all “Jews” in the world come from Russian steppe tribesmen who converted to Judaism about 1300 years after the biblical scriptures had been written. They are called “Ashkenazi” Jews and they have no genetic ancestry among Abraham’s biblical Israelites at all. They were the prime so-called “Jewish” victims of Hitler’s so-called “Holocaust”. They constituted, from 1948, the vast majority of modern Israel’s population. For many of them who now reside in Israel, Florida, California or New York City, their first language is still Russian. These Ashkenazi “Jews” had immigrated massively into the United States between 1870 and 1920 and are the people that ordinary Americans know as “Jews”. Most of them settled in New York City originally. The largest Jewish newspaper in the U.S. is the Forward, published in New York City, and it still puts out an all-Russian edition. The Ashkenazi “Jews” then spread all over the country, and especially to Florida and California, and they are notable for creating Hollywood’s movie industry. When I had finally digested all this, which took about six months, the animal-like animosity of the New York Times editorial became crystal clear. The “Jewish” Ashkenazim had come from a region of known late-lingering Neanderthals, the Caucasus Mountains and the neighboring Russian steppes. Some typically “Jewish” physical traits were very obviously vestigial Neanderthal ones – generally a short stature and a plump physique, many very short wide-hipped and big- breasted women, extremely hairy men and a tendency toward beetling brows and large beaky “hooked” noses in both genders. Many Ashkenazim have crinkly-curly head hair tending toward dark reddish brown or mahogany in color. Among Ashkenazi “Jews” there is also a genetic tendency toward beaky faces, not only just noses, and big mouths (in more ways than one) that “wrap around” the lower face. Barbara Streisand and Julia Roberts provide two lovely and very well known examples of how attractive this genetic trait can be. But these are not “Semitic” physical traits. They are Neanderthal physical characteristics. And maybe some Neanderthal emotional and behavioral traits persisted among the Ashkenazim along with the physical ones. Their “chosen people” pretension is a typical Neanderthal in-group obsession that is actually a genetic racist predisposition against all other humans. It is a genetically determined “us against them” mentality. Their higher level of known Neanderthal aggression against outsiders is responsible for their disproportional social influence wherever they have settled in the West. Their men’s feelings of sexual inadequacy are a Neanderthal genetic legacy reflected in much more frequent confusion of sexual orientation than occurs among males of other Caucasian ethnic groups and other races. It has been the subject of too-numerous Jewish-authored books and screenplays, and Woody Allen’s work (and private life) is a very well known example of this Jewish predicament. This genetic Neanderthal psychosexual maladaptation has also bequeathed to Jews a tendency toward emotional instability and hysteria when they feel nervous or threatened... which is all the time when they are not in absolute control. And they are arrogant, but uneasy, even then. An ethnic symptom of this emotional instability is the Jewish tendency toward hypochondria. Even they cannot (yet) control death. This unfortunate combination of high aggression combined with a tendency toward hysteria and emotional instability has proved to be a dangerous and tragic situation over the course of Western history. Their aggression encourages continual Jewish attempts to control societies, while the emotional instability makes it difficult for most Jews to distinguish reasonably between justified social criticism by their non-Jewish neighbors and attacks. Insensitive even to objective concerns about inordinate Jewish influence in societies, and reacting with hysterical aggression to any such supposed “attack” on their behavior and pleas from non-Jews to limit it, Jews have always provoked violence against themselves. And then they, with much emotional satisfaction, feel victimized and attribute the situation to innate “anti-Semitism” among their neighbors. This tragic cycle happened most recently in Nazi Germany, of course, but it had happened previously in almost all European countries. This historical pattern is the social result of Neanderthal genetic traits of high aggression and emotional instability caused by Ice Age psychosexual maladaptation. All this is very clear to me now. But... The Iceman Inheritance as published in 1978 had been written only in terms of “Caucasians”, “Western humanity”, “white men” and so on. But with my research after the New York Times op-ed polemic of July 1992, I soon discovered that it was really a much more relevant pen-portrait of Ashkenazi “Jews”. Some other scattered European ethnic groups share generally similar physical characteristics, of course, but not nearly so strongly and consistently as Ashkenazi Jews. The Ashkenazi Jews, as a group, exhibit lingering Neanderthal traits most strongly among living Caucasians because of Jewish prohibitions against marriage with outsiders. Their Neanderthal genes have been kept “all in the family”, as it were. These Neanderthal genes were not diluted by intermarriage nearly as much as with most other Caucasians. The New York Times had realized this by July 20, 1992 with its vicious and inaccurate editorial, or (as I have said) about six months before I did. I have since had good reasons to suspect that Jewish physical and social anthropologists at New York City’s Columbia University, students of the great Dr. Harold L. Shapiro, had alerted the New York Times to this potentially embarrassing anthropological situation revealed “between the lines” of The Iceman Inheritance. The irony here is that I had spoken with Dr. Shapiro several times when I was working on The Iceman Inheritance about fifteen years earlier under Dr. Carleton Coon’s tutelage (1976-1978). Shapiro himself supported the multi-regional construct of human “racial” evolution and also agreed that Neanderthals had been among the ancestors of some modern Europeans. But he had avoided controversy and censure by publicly (at least) associating himself with the evolution of Far Eastern humanity, or “Sinanthropus” (Peking Man, 1974). There was another reason for Jewish animosity, of course. If the Ashkenazim were really Neanderthal-Caucasoids from the northern Caucasus steppes of Russia and not descendants of biblical Israelites, then what was the United Nations’ justification for creating (1947-1948) modern Israel as the “traditional homeland” of these Ashkenazi Jews? They already had a “traditional homeland”, and a much more appropriate one – the so-called “Jewish Autonomous Region” of the U.S.S.R. The North American public was naturally never told about this “traditional homeland” for Ashkenazi Jews. I remember being stunned when I found this territory marked on a 1950s Soviet map and then queried Russian authorities about it in 1992. The “Soviet Jewish Dissidents” of the 1950s-1990s, who received so much press coverage in North America, preferred to claim false Israelite identity than to admit their real Russian steppe ancestry. The creation of modern Israel was the first major action taken by the UN after the United States had established the world body in 1945-1946. And it was media pressure from New York and Hollywood, of course, that had thoroughly propagandized Americans into sympathy for this creation. With The Iceman Inheritance, I had innocently stepped into an anthropological research mess that challenged both “Jewish” identity and also challenged the geopolitical credibility of modern Israel. No wonder that some fanatical “Jews” wanted to kill me. Nonetheless, during this research of late 1992, I discovered that other Jews besides me had dared to have more loyalty to human truth than to Ashkenazi “Jewish” propaganda. Dr. A.N. Poliak of Tel Aviv University in Israel had written his scholarly Khazaria: The History of a Jewish Kingdom in Europe in 1950 (in Hebrew). The respected Jewish writer, Arthur Koestler, had documented Ashkenazi origins and the implications for modern Israel’s credibility in The Thirteenth Tribe (1976). They had revealed for ordinary readers the conversion to Judaism of a very numerous and powerful Russian steppe tribe called “Khazars”. These steppe Khazars had converted en masse to Judaism about AD 740 in order to avoid religious, cultural and political control by either Moslems in Persia or by Christians in Byzantium. This conversion to Judaism had bolstered their religious independence and had preserved their geopolitical power as middle-men in the overland silk and spice trade with China. These “Jewish” Khazars, along with Alans, Bulgars, Magyars and other minor steppe tribes, were subsequently dispersed all over Central and Eastern Europe about 500 years later by the Mongol invasion of AD 1218. Previously, only specialist historians, like Britain’s J.M. Bury in A History of the Eastern Roman Empire (1912) or Joseph Jacobs’ Jewish Contributions to Western Civilization (1920), had known or cared about this relatively minor episode of history. I had never been very interested in Jewish culture, lore or history and so I had missed all these books and the two by Koestler and Poliak along with Khazaria by the Jewish-dissident archaeologist, A.M. Artamonov. He had verified the existence of this Jewish kingdom by excavating its Volga River capital (1946-1960) and by recovering large amounts of Hebrew-inscribed coins dating from between AD 740 and about 1200. I also discovered that the famous Jewish linguist, Dr. Moishe Miesnes, had verified that Gothic-speaking Khazar refugees fleeing the Mongol invasion had helped create Yiddish (Yid Deutsch, or “Jew German”) in Central and Eastern Europe by about AD 1300 (Die Yiddishe Sprache, 1924). This Russian steppe origin of today’s Ashkenazi “Jews” was not just a “theory” based on squibs by medieval Christian, Moslem and Jewish chroniclers. It was solid and objective historical reality based on linguistics and hard archaeological artifacts. And, with The Iceman Inheritance, my unforgivable crime had been to add very persuasive anthropological data to all the other evidence. And this “data” was also something that anyone could actually see by simply taking a close look at many North American “Jews”. In spite of the New York Times full-page editorial of July 1992 and renewed instant blacklisting by Jewish editors across North America – or maybe because of these attempts at suppression – The Iceman Inheritance was adopted as required reading on “Africana” courses at 54 American universities and colleges. And always, vehement objections were voiced by “white” (i.e. mostly Jewish) faculty members. But the book has now profoundly influenced two generations of non-white students since 1978, and even more since 1992 – mostly African- Americans, but also Asians and Hispanics. Among the tens of thousands of people who have read The Iceman Inheritance, two have now become prominent members of the Bush Administration. They are in a position to influence U.S. policies, especially in the Middle East, and to influence them according to the revelations of The Iceman Inheritance. Attentive newspaper readers and political analysts will remember that the very first year of George Bush’s new U.S. Mideast policy was one of attempted even-handedness toward Palestinians and Israelis. Remember when U.S. Secretary of State, Colin Powell, walked hand-in-hand with Yasser Arafat down the streets of Jerusalem demanding the removal of Israeli roadblocks? Even after the presumed terrorist attacks of “9/11”, the United States remained committed to an independent Palestinian State. In fact, Colin Powell was to have announced this commitment on notorious “9/11”. But subsequent headlines reflected Israel’s determination to undermine that policy, to undermine the Bush Administration and also to expand into Palestinian territories on the West Bank and Gaza. After October 4, 2001, these ongoing incursions into agreed-upon Palestinian land and living space have been labeled as “war crimes” by the United Nations. And also after October 4, 2001, the life and leadership of Yasser Arafat were directly targeted by Israel. For some reason still unknown to history, U.S. policy “towed the Israeli line” after October 4, 2001. This has so far culminated, in March 2003, with the invasion of Iraq, Israel’s most determined adversary in the region. This aggression is not only intended to expand Israel’s borders, but is also a purposeful attempt to provoke Palestinian and Arab outrage and violence. Israel can then “strike back” against Arab “terrorism” by manipulating American power and also use its own sophisticated American weaponry against Palestinians. That is what this dangerous and tragic game is all about. The Iceman Inheritance had proposed that some groups originating in the Caucasus Mountain refuge for lingering Neanderthals, and especially groups that were undiluted by intermarriage, retained a genetic proclivity towards Neanderthal aggression. There were a carefully estimated 400,000 copies of The Iceman Inheritance in print as of 1993, according to Dr. Ray Winbush of Vanderbilt University’s cultural analysis center. These 400,000 copies represented both legitimate and numerous pirated editions. There may be roughly a million copies out there today and I still get about the same number of requests for guest lectures as in 1992. Therefore, there is still a great deal of interest in the book. I have decided to offer a new and revised edition that incorporates relevant anthropological research since 1978. Incorporating this new Foreword, appendices and footnotes that do not impinge upon the original and now-classic text, the recent DNA so-called “research” by politically motivated and predominantly Jewish scientists since 1992 is fully covered. The revisions demonstrate that no actual facts challenge the truth and reality of Neanderthal admixture in all Caucasians and, even more strongly, in “some” ethnic groups of Western humanity. Media-hyped statistical juggling of genetic data has attempted to disguise and distort this anthropological reality in the public’s perception. This ethnic reality had to be disguised, obscured and camouflaged if the real origin of Ashkenazi Jews was to be kept from the North American public that had supported the creation of modern Israel. Since 1978, my increasingly visible book had threatened to unravel the truth. The New York Times editorial against Dr. Len Jeffries in July 1991, and against me and my book in July 1992, had ironically only enhanced “Iceman’s” public notoriety. Something had to be done to defuse and confuse the solid evidence of anthropology on which The Iceman Inheritance was based. The book had argued a higher level of aggression in Caucasians compared to other races (“major genetic groups”) of humanity because of Neanderthal physical and sexual adaptations to “Ice Age” conditions. These adaptations have become “maladaptations” in the present post-glacial world. And The Iceman Inheritance had at least inferred a still higher level of aggression and psychosexual maladaptation in genetic groups that had originated in the Caucasus Mountains, including the Ashkenazim. If there is significant Caucasus Neanderthal genetic admixture in Caucasians – and that is why, after all, Caucasians are called Caucasians – then this fact alone also proves that there are genetic “races” of humanity with slightly different physical characteristics and maybe different mental and emotional tendencies too. Jewish scientists had to do something about this. And they did. On September 27, 1991, Dr. Marc Stoneking of the University of Pennsylvania (and three other Jewish scientists) announced that “the mother of all mankind” had come from somewhere just south of the Sahara about 225,000 years ago and that all of “modern humanity” had descended from her. There were no “races” because we had all come from the same genetic mother and were just one big family. This conclusion by the Stoneking team was based on a “statistical analysis” and “statistical comparison” of mitochrondrial DNA from an alleged worldwide sample of women. Naturally, Stoneking dubbed this primal human mother “Eve”. This was the first time, but not the last, that “statistical” DNA and Y-chromosome studies would be linked to Jewish biblical terminology and personalities. Naturally, the more innocent and uneducated Afro-Americans were thrilled with this news and supported the media-hyped “study”. Eve might well have been Black! Feminists of the time were also flattered and pleased. And, in fact (of course), this “statistical” announcement had been politically engineered precisely in order to gain Black and Feminist support for this biblically-associated propaganda. The truth of the matter was that Stoneking and his cronies had simply ignored the existence of African, European and Chinese skulls that were either transitional or fully modern and known to be 100,000 years older than wholly statistical and hypothetical “Eve”. But not many newspaper readers are physical anthropologists, and even some of the few who were supported the study because it seemed “politically correct” and might undermine “racism”, not because it truly reflected the known facts. The road to hell is paved with good intentions, as someone once observed. Dr. Eric Trinkhaus of the University of New Mexico and many other U.S. anthropologists, but particularly Asian and European anthropologists, branded the study “a statistical house of cards.” This didn’t prevent “Eve” from becoming a pop media sensation in North America. Unfortunately and very cruelly for those who favored the study as a challenge to racism, it was actually just the opposite. It was the first attempt, but not the last, to cover up Caucasian racist proclivities under the statistically juggled “proof” that there were no “races” to possess any such proclivities. As the saying goes, “first come lies, then damn lies and then statistics.” Or, as another common-sense observation warns us, “figures don’t lie, but liars figure.” It took about eight years for educated North American Blacks to get wise to this deception. In March 2000, the Never Again Coalition of mostly non-white students at Canada’s Carleton University in Ottawa asked me to give a talk during “Anti-Racism Week” about the use of anti-racist rhetoric to cloak racist behavior. “Anti-Racism Week” in Canada is partly sponsored by the Canadian government. Naturally, the Jewish “Hillel” organization on campus, very possibly in co-operation with the Canadian Government, managed to prevent my appearance and suppress my presentation. The eventual speaker was someone who mouthed the obligatory politically correct irrelevancies. This “Anti-Racism Week” is also partly sponsored by huge multi-national corporations, like Coke and Pepsi, and all of them are under Jewish banking pressure to expand or else. The Canadian Government relies on these same multi-nationals to under-write at least some Canadian employment. You can see how the land lies, but the high-profile Year 2000 “Anti-Racism Week” in Canada merely made many non-White Carleton students want to puke. And well they should have wanted to puke. But the main challenge to Ashkenazi Jewish identity and to Israel’s credibility was still the much-too-obvious visual fact of Neanderthal physical traits in all Caucasians, but more especially in Central and Eastern European “Jews” who form the great majority of modern Israel’s population. It can be accurately and truthfully said that all of the recent “no-Neanderthal” DNA studies were concocted specifically to challenge The Iceman Inheritance. Dr. Tomas Lindahl of the Imperial Cancer Institute in London, England put it very well in his press statement about the first such media-hyped “no-Neanderthal” DNA study. This so-called “research” was done by Marc Stoneking – again – and Dr. Svaante Paabo (University of Munich) and was published on July 17, 1997 in the journal Cell. Their statistics were a “bad joke”, according to the University of Michigan’s Dr. Milford Wolpoff and a “statistical house of cards”, as Dr. Eric Trinkhaus of the University of New Mexico put it yet again. Nonetheless, Lindahl could say for the press: “I have not examined the Paabo-Stoneking statistics thoroughly, but I support their study because it will lay to rest some bizarre theories about the social implications of Neanderthal admixture in modern humanity” (my italics). The only such “bizarre theory” was and remains The Iceman Inheritance. The Neanderthal genetic legacy in Caucasians is the anthropological explanation for the Western world’s tendencies toward racism, sexism and aggression against all other people and also toward the whole environment – from pure slavery and genocide through colonialism and on to today’s economic globalization. “The mill of the gods grinds slowly, but it grinds exceeding fine” is a homily that might be applied to The Iceman Inheritance. It wasn’t buried by the New York Times on July 20, 1992. In March 2001, the United Nations’ Geneva-based High Commission on Human Rights asked me for copies of three books (The Cronos Complex, The Iceman Inheritance and Chosen People from the Caucasus). The UN also wanted a synopsis of the argument that there was a definite genetic component to world globalization and the Middle Eastern crisis. This material went via UNESCO to Yasser Arafat and to UN Ambassadors all over the world. Some of the anthropological information also went into the delegates’ information kit at the Durban, South Africa conference on racism. Israel’s delegation, and the United States’ delegation (as the creator and supporter of Israel for half a century), both walked out of this conference on Monday, September 3, 2001, just eight days before infamous “9/11”. The Bush Administration had no choice in view of this direct international attack on America’s geopolitical baby, but I know that some top members of the Administration were much opposed to this continued show of unconditional U.S. support for Israel. The B’nai Brith and Canadian Jewish Congress vainly pressured the Canadian delegation to walk out in support of the U.S. and Israel. However, Canada, Britain, France, Italy and the Scandinavian delegations did not walk out of the Durban racism conference. The point of all this is that half a century of U.S. and Israeli propaganda has been unraveled by a growing international awareness of actual anthropological truth. The London-based Afrikan Business and Culture magazine featured a May 2003 interview with me about The Iceman Inheritance. A UK lecture tour has been arranged for me in October 2003. Israeli and North American Ashkenazi “Jews” have, indeed, been “singled out” as a major source of aggression and racism behind the ongoing Middle East crisis and also behind much globalization misery. I will conclude by stressing a point that unfortunately I never previously emphasized. If I seem have to targeted the Ashkenazi “Jews”, it is only because they have so much direct influence upon the policies of Western societies, particularly of the United States. But they are inherently no “worse” than monotheistic Arab-Islamic fundamentalist fanatics in terms of genetic tendencies toward aggression. Any good map will show that the strongholds of Arab-Islamic fundamentalism are still located in the Caucasus Mountains and in those mountain ranges that are contiguous with them. This includes Chechnya in the Caucasus itself, the Zagros Mountains of northern Iraq, the Elburz Range of Iran, the Hindu Kush of Afghanistan and the Pamirs of Pakistan. Indeed, both the Ashkenazi “Jews” and most Arab-Islamic fundamentalist fanatics originated from the very same Neanderthal- Caucasoid genetic stock. That’s what makes the current Middle East confrontation so ironic and frightening. Two very similar groups, only supposedly “separated” by similar “religions”, are engaged in a genetic struggle for eternal identity. This is a biological confrontation, or a “psychobiological” one. The adversaries are incapable of recognizing each other as being human for biological reasons that are explained in The Iceman Inheritance. This new and revised edition of The Iceman Inheritance features the two original Canadian introductions by anthropologist Dr. Judith Posner (York University, Toronto) and Social Work professor Imre de Cspreg Nemeth (Seneca College, Toronto) along with an Introduction written for the legitimate Kayode-Lushena U.S. edition by my good and much-lamented friend, the late Dr. John Henrik Clarke of Hunter College, New York. And, in fact, this new edition of The Iceman Inheritance is dedicated to Dr. Clarke. In return for only a pair of Canadian-made galoshes that I gave him on a bitterly cold day at Chicago's Kennedy-King College, Dr. Clarke gave me great emotional and intellectual wealth -- just a little of his own seemingly boundless courage and compassion. Cover comments by Dr. Len Jeffries and James Smalls of the City College of New York are included.

The Iceman Inheritance A frightening publication history of Jewish media suppression Now, for the first time in 23 years, there is a new and revised edition of one of the most notorious underground bestsellers in recent North American publishing h Read more ... istory – possibly second only to The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews. The original jacket description of this book was: "Michael Bradley delves back into our glacial past during the last Ice Age in order to find the prehistoric sources of the white race's aggression, racism and sexism. Relying on the researches of Alexander Marshack, Carleton Coon, Konrad Lorenz, S.L. Washburn, Ralph Solecki and others, Bradley offers a persuasive argument that the white race, the Neanderthal-Caucasoids, are more aggressive than other groups because of ancient sexual maladaption. And, in tracing the effects of Caucasian aggression, Bradley offers an uncomfortable and all-too-plausible explanation for the pattern of human history." * * * * * * * * Please buy The Iceman Inheritance and Michael Bradley’s other books from this website only. Michael receives no royalties from pirated editions sold through Amazon and in some bookstores. * * * * * * * * Ironically enough, The Iceman Inheritance was very favourably received after its initial Canadian publication in December 1978. Dr. Judith Posner, an anthropology professor at Toronto’s York University, had written in her Introduction: “The Iceman Inheritance is a worthy model to keep in mind when reviewing the long range of human history, and especially when looking into the future.” Several other anthropologists, sociologists and historians were equally encouraging. All agreed that the argument of The Iceman Inheritance was well worth an airing and objective assessment. The book was immediately excerpted by three major Canadian daily newspapers: the Globe and Mail (Toronto, 2 pages), The Calgary Herald (1 page) and the Ottawa Journal (1 page). About twenty U.S. newspapers also excerpted it, or else wrote long and generally very favourable reviews. The book was seen as a new and valuable insight into the pattern of human history. There were some experts who disagreed with the theory, of course, but two observations were hard to shrug off. First, every single modern political boundary on earth has been drawn or dictated by Caucasians. Second, I provided an anthropological map of “the Iceman’s inheritance” which showed the inexorable Caucasian expansion from 100,000 years ago to now. This made a good TV graphic. I was interviewed by Tom Snyder on NBC’s coast-to-coast “Tomorrow” television talk show (the other guest was Bill Cosby) while the book was being promoted at the annual Convention of the American Anthropological Association held in Los Angeles in 1979. I was invited to give a multi-part presentation to the Princeton University Institute for Advanced Study (Symposium on Alternative Futures). This was covered by CBC Radio’s prestigious “Ideas” series. A major North American publisher, Warner Books (later Times-Warner), bought the mass-market paperback rights in late 1979 and quickly put out an edition that sold 40,000 copies in the first two weeks. Then, in early 1981, someone figured out the implications for Jews in the book’s presentation of evidence… I had never considered this myself because it had been a long time since I had taken my own Jewish origins into any account. I had never even thought about any “Jewish implications” of the book. Neither did the Jewish publisher of the original Canadian edition, Larry Goldstein. And, obviously, Dr. Judith Posner had not thought about any “Jewish implications” either when she wrote an Introduction for The Iceman Inheritance – unless, of course, courageous Judy Posner simply had more affinity with all of humanity than with her own ethnic group. Jews were blandly mentioned on half a page in the 226-page book. After 1981, some bookstores that had formerly carried the book were threatened with boycott and fire-bombing by Jewish pressure groups. Warnings by Jewish anthropologists and complaints by Jewish pressure groups caused Warner Books to drop the book almost instantly, in breach of contract. But my rights to find another publisher were not immediately returned to me as is usually the case in such situations and is also the normal industry practice. Warner Books wanted to co-operate in the strategy of making The Iceman Inheritance totally unavailable to buyers and readers. Two speaking tours by the author were cancelled because the organizers could not guarantee my safety in view of threats of violence by the Jewish Defence League. The seriousness of the situation was demonstrated when a Mier Kahane-inspired extremist tried to stab me on the podium at Kennedy-King College in Chicago To add insult to near-injury, I found that although The Iceman Inheritance was sufficiently provocative for the Jewish media mafia to suppress it... and also to steal it for profit when convenient... I was not to earn income from it. Because of the 1979 anthropological convention in Los Angeles and my appearance on NBC’s “Tomorrow” show with interviewer Tom Snyder and co-guest Bill Cosby (and many other U.S. radio and TV shows), two LA screenwriters heard of the theory. They were inspired to write a movie script called “The Iceman” about a frozen Neanderthal who, on being thawed out by scientists, exhibited aggression and identity problems in the dimension of time. The two writers wrote me a letter in 1981, thanking me not only for their inspiration, but also for the book’s technical anthropology data they were able to include in their screenplay. I learned completely by accident a few months later that Canadian producer-director Norman Jewison had acquired this screenplay and planned to produce “The Iceman” in 1983 at a cost of $11-million. At the time, I was otherwise engaged in the Caribbean trying to help, mostly with my own money and some government assistance, impoverished people in the Third World. I was making inexpensive fishing boats and electricity-producing windmills with the help of the Canadian International Development Agency... see the many articles and Hot Air and Ancient Wonders on this Site. Although Canadians swear by Jewison’s so-called “integrity” and his encouragement of Canadian creators, none of this applied to me when I appealed politely in several letters to these noble qualities supposedly possessed by Norman Jewison. And when this didn’t work, I didn’t have enough time or money to fight Jewison’s expensive LA lawyers effectively. The upshot was that Jewison made the film, released in 1983, but I received no money and not even a screen credit for supplying the entire theme (not the plot, thankfully) of Jewison’s “The Iceman” and supplying most of its research. Banned by Jewish social and financial influence in all the so-called “mainstream” (i.e. “white”) American educational institutions, The Iceman Inheritance was partly suppressed and also, of course, no major publisher would touch it because of both legal complications and Jewish opposition. But because of the stir caused by the approximately 200,000 Warner Books paperbacks that had been sold by 1981, the public’s growing demand for the book was much greater than the supply. This encouraged the production of at least four pirate editions based on Xerox copies of the Warner Books paperback and one pirate edition based on the original Canadian hardcover. These pirated editions dominated the market for a decade while I focused on Third World aid and development projects. Finally, because of the embarrassment caused by these editions (Warner Books’ logo had naturally been Xeroxed along with the text), when the New York Times and Warner Books merged to become Times-Warner, they wrote me a letter saying that they had “no interest” in the book. They denied that they had ever held rights to it and also denied that they had ever even published it! The Warner Books logo had been counterfeited by the pirate publishers, they claimed. Chivalrous, those pirates. But this denial of publication was technically correct, although it was a misleading legalism and a distortion of the common-sense truth. Times-Warner had not published The Iceman Inheritance, Warner Books had published it before the merger. Cute, eh? In spite of this treatment by a Jewish-owned media giant and the Jewish-edited New York Times, I had nonetheless found the time to do some undercover work for the B’nai Brith over these years. I became concerned about “neo-Nazi” groups that were supposedly operating under the guise of “Odinists” – believers in the old Teutonic god, Odin. I had completely by chance stumbled on evidence that these Odinists had possibly killed at least one Jewish woman executive in Toronto (and possibly two others). These deaths had been judged as suicides by the Toronto police. But I investigated the circumstances of these deaths out of my own dangerous sense of curiosity (like the research leading to The Iceman Inheritance). One of the victims had been a friend of mine. I managed to get that case re-opened again as a possible homicide and to have investigations into the two other deaths re-opened as well. These same Odinists in Toronto, I was able to tell the B’nai Brith, were very possibly sending arms to groups in South America and also apparently producing and selling underground “snuff movies” in order to pay for weapons. Snuff movies are films that feature an actual and usually prolonged torture-killing, in this case the victims were mostly Caribbean and South American native girls. Because of my aid projects, contacts and travels to non-touristy destinations in the Caribbean and Central America, the B’nai Brith and the Toronto police asked me to go underground, using my established cover as a Third World development expert (but one with kinky tastes), and to penetrate the Odinist network. I did this from 1981 until 1983, often at considerable risk, reporting directly to Toronto Police Chief, John Wesley “Jack” Ackroyd. I wrote a novel based on this experience called The Valhalla Victims (1983), but withdrew it from submission to publishers at the request of the B’nai Brith. It documented some actual “neo-Nazi” networks much too well and both the B’nai Brith and Israel’s secret service, “the Mossad (I was told)”, were afraid that the novel would push these groups even deeper underground. At that time, there were still some major North American publishers that were not Jewish owned or controlled and I had two book offers for the novel and one film offer. But I complied with the B’nai Brith request. I received a letter of commendation for my undercover research and for not publishing the novel. With the publication rights of The Iceman Inheritance freed up by the Times-Warner merger, Lushena-Kayode Books, a small New York Afro-American publisher, finally did put out a legal and legitimate edition in 1991. But Lushena-Kayode Books could only afford to print a limited number of copies. Besides that, Lushena-Kayode’s edition was 40% defective and I was never paid royalties on any of the print runs. The owner fled to Trinidad at one point where he continues to publish and sell his now-illegal pirate edition over the Internet. This 1981-1991 decade of playing legalisms with the media mafia had not only cost me a great deal of income in royalties lost to pirated editions, but the frequent Jewish telephone threats to maim or murder me between 1981-1991 caused stress that has affected my health. Because of the Lushena-Kayode edition of 1991, The Iceman Inheritance started making news again. I was invited to give lectures at Vanderbilt, Yale, Kennedy-King College (again) and many other American universities and colleges – and the tempo of Jewish threats also increased. But some organizers were so incensed at Jewish terrorist tactics that they were willing to pay for beefed-up security. Dr. Len Jeffries began using The Iceman Inheritance at the City College of New York. All seven top editors of the New York Times were Jewish in 1991 and they hoped to bury Dr. Jeffries with a media campaign of libel and misrepresentation that started on July 20, 1991. This eventually cost the New York Times some $400,000 in damages. Exactly a year later, the New York Times took aim at me and The Iceman Inheritance with a full-page editorial on July 20, 1992 – the now famous (or infamous) “Demagogues and Pseudo- Scholars” – that included not only misquotes, but purely imaginary quotes from The Iceman Inheritance. Now, it is true that almost every prominent and progressive Afro-American professor was swiped at in this article, but it is also true that most of them were using The Iceman Inheritance in their classes. My claim that “Demagogues and Pseudo-Scholars” was aimed primarily at me and the book is borne out by the fact that of all those mentioned in the full-page editorial, only I was invited to write a rebuttal reply. This reply was duly published several weeks later next to a letter by President Marcos of the Philippines. I have not yet looked up the date of my published reply in my disorganized files, but it should not be hard for any serious researcher to discover. I still remember how stunned and hurt I was at the time (July 1992) because of the sudden about-face in a major newspaper’s public editorial judgement of the book and because of the sheer viciousness of the New York Times editorial. Even after Times-Warner’s treatment of me, and the axe-job on Jeffries, I still could not believe that the respected New York Times would stoop to printing false “quotes” from a published book. It would be too easy to check... if any “journalist” with integrity bothered to check, that is. But maybe few journalists, and even fewer Jewish ones, can claim any integrity. I decided not to expend any money in seeking legal redress, as Dr. Len Jeffries had done. First of all, I did not have the income and security afforded by Jeffries’ CCNY tenure and, being a Caucasian myself, I lacked Len Jeffries’ Afro-American support and personal protection infrastructure. Besides, I was devoting all my resources to the development of a new inter-island trading vessel intended for Caricom (the so-called “Caribbean Common Market”). Many Jewish editors in other North American daily newspapers duly followed the New York Times’ unwritten “ethnic” directive of not referring to The Iceman Inheritance ever again and pretending that it didn’t exist. Since July 20,1992, not even Canadian newspapers have mentioned this best selling Canadian-authored book. It had been reliably estimated that The Iceman Inheritance has sold more copies than any other Canadian-authored book except for Anne of Green Gables and (arguably) Farley Mowat’s Sibir. This Canadian silence shows just how deep Jewish influence is in North American media, and it also demonstrates the danger to democratic freedom of speech that this inordinate influence represents. About 35% to 40% of all reporters and editors in North American newspapers are Jewish, and an even higher percentage of producers, story editors and script writers in electronic media are Jewish. All major media in the United States, including newspapers, publishers and movie production, is financially controlled by Jews when it is not actually Jewish-owned. The same is true in Canada. That is why you see so much pro-Jewish, pro-Israeli and anti-Arab propaganda in Hollywood’s so-called “harmless entertainment” – from early summer’s The Return of the Mummy (May 2001) to Leslie Nielsen’s just-released Wrongfully Accused (August 2001). A few years ago, Independence Day was a blatant example of pro-Jewish propaganda and there are too many more Hollywood films that imbed both blatant and subtle pro-Jewish and pro-Israeli bias in the “entertainment.” This includes all of Mel Brooks’ films, for example. Almost all North American network TV newscasters and analyst-commentators are Jewish, which is why the 2000 American presidential election was almost hijacked for Gore-Lieberman. These newscasters, led by CNN, agreed to announce what they knew to be fraudulent “returns” when network television coverage began at 7:00 PM Eastern time. At 7:03 they all announced that Gore-Lieberman had carried crucial Florida – while the polls were still open in the western part of the state in the Central Time Zone. Western Florida’s “panhandle” was acknowledged Bush turf. Many Bush supporters, hearing incorrectly from all major media sources that their candidate had already lost, didn’t bother to vote. In the subsequent Senate investigations of the media’s election coverage in February-March 2001, it transpired that this so-called “mistake” had cost Bush 40,000 votes. But at the time, in the 37-day aftermath of legal struggles for the presidency during most of November and into early December 2000, the media only once mentioned this attempt to manipulate the Florida vote. All major networks instead gave incessant coverage about the “butterfly ballot” in heavily Jewish West Palm Beach County. However… testimony given to the Senate’s investigation of the media’s election coverage during February and March 2001 established that this “butterfly ballot” had been purposefully planted to focus media attention on a heavily Jewish county if, after all, the Florida vote turned out to be close in spite of the media’s “mistake”. Three former Clinton aides also testified to the Senate that several network newscasters pestered outgoing Bill Clinton for presidential pardons during the last days of the Clinton-Gore Administration. Media buried these admissions on back pages when they were mentioned in print at all. No network television news or public affairs program ever even mentioned these pleas for presidential pardons by their own newscasters. There is much more to this attempted Election 2000 coup d’état – for that is exactly what it was – in the United States by Jews, the media and Israel. Thanks to some Afro-American contacts in the offices of the National Security Advisor and State Department, I have heard rumors about how and why the Gore-Lieberman ticket really backed down. Votes and recounts had little to do with it. But enough has been said to show that inordinate Jewish control of media is obviously dangerous for democracy. And Jewish control of North American media is also why you will never see a recap of Israel’s creation, as informative background to Middle East violence, on American television. To get back to my own story and The Iceman Inheritance, I was shocked and hurt by the New York Times editorial of July 20, 1992, but I was also very puzzled. What had I written to cause all this insane anger? My original Canadian publisher, Larry Goldstein of Dorset Publishing Inc., was not only Jewish, but had served in the Negev on an Israeli kibbutz. Dr. Judy Posner was Jewish. Surely, they would have taken issue with any “anti-Semitic” content of The Iceman Inheritance long before it was published? The problem was really that I had always been woefully ignorant about true Jewish origins. And so were most North American Jews. Between 1979-1991, I had been wholly concentrating on development projects in Africa, the Caribbean, South America and Sri Lanka and had had time only to read mostly technical publications and reports. Like most people, I had always thought that “the Jews” had once lived in Palestine, had been expelled by the Romans about AD 70 in the “Diaspora” and had settled in various places, including Central and Eastern Europe. But spurred by the vicious and sometimes violent Jewish reaction to The Iceman Inheritance in 1992, I buckled down to do some serious research about episodes of human history that were a little more recent than the Middle and Upper Paleolithic. And I learned the surprising truth. Only 4.5% of Jews in the world, according to the Jewish Encyclopaedia (the first post-World War II, 1960 edition), could trace their ancestry back to the Holy Land and they are called “Sephardic” Jews from the Hebrew word for Spain, Sepharad. There are very few of them in the United States, but some live in the southern states bordering the Gulf of Mexico. That explained my own Jewish family heritage, which had always puzzled me. I learned, to my surprise, that my family was Sephardic from Louisiana. Many Sephardic Jews presently live in and around the Caribbean where they were the first “Spanish” and “Portuguese” conquistadors and colonists. My Jewish ancestors were thus responsible for the genocide of millions of American Indians and for starting the transatlantic slave trade in Black Africans. Other Sephardic Jews live in Spain, southern France, South America and South Africa. The other 95.5% of all “Jews” in the world come from Russian steppe tribesmen who converted to Judaism about 1300 years after the biblical scriptures had been written. They are called “Ashkenazi” Jews and they have no genetic ancestry among Abraham’s biblical Israelites at all. They were the prime so-called “Jewish” victims of Hitler’s so-called “Holocaust”. They constituted, from 1948, the vast majority of modern Israel’s population. For many of them who now reside in Israel, Florida, California or New York City, their first language is still Russian. These Ashkenazi “Jews” had immigrated massively into the United States between 1870 and 1920 and are the people that ordinary Americans know as “Jews”. Most of them settled in New York City originally. The largest Jewish newspaper in the U.S. is the Forward, published in New York City, and it still puts out an all-Russian edition. The Ashkenazi “Jews” then spread all over the country, and especially to Florida and California, and they are notable for creating Hollywood’s movie industry. When I had finally digested all this, which took about six months, the animal-like animosity of the New York Times editorial became crystal clear. The “Jewish” Ashkenazim had come from a region of known late-lingering Neanderthals, the Caucasus Mountains and the neighboring Russian steppes. Some typically “Jewish” physical traits were very obviously vestigial Neanderthal ones – generally a short stature and a plump physique, many very short wide-hipped and big- breasted women, extremely hairy men and a tendency toward beetling brows and large beaky “hooked” noses in both genders. Many Ashkenazim have crinkly-curly head hair tending toward dark reddish brown or mahogany in color. Among Ashkenazi “Jews” there is also a genetic tendency toward beaky faces, not only just noses, and big mouths (in more ways than one) that “wrap around” the lower face. Barbara Streisand and Julia Roberts provide two lovely and very well known examples of how attractive this genetic trait can be. But these are not “Semitic” physical traits. They are Neanderthal physical characteristics. And maybe some Neanderthal emotional and behavioral traits persisted among the Ashkenazim along with the physical ones. Their “chosen people” pretension is a typical Neanderthal in-group obsession that is actually a genetic racist predisposition against all other humans. It is a genetically determined “us against them” mentality. Their higher level of known Neanderthal aggression against outsiders is responsible for their disproportional social influence wherever they have settled in the West. Their men’s feelings of sexual inadequacy are a Neanderthal genetic legacy reflected in much more frequent confusion of sexual orientation than occurs among males of other Caucasian ethnic groups and other races. It has been the subject of too-numerous Jewish-authored books and screenplays, and Woody Allen’s work (and private life) is a very well known example of this Jewish predicament. This genetic Neanderthal psychosexual maladaptation has also bequeathed to Jews a tendency toward emotional instability and hysteria when they feel nervous or threatened... which is all the time when they are not in absolute control. And they are arrogant, but uneasy, even then. An ethnic symptom of this emotional instability is the Jewish tendency toward hypochondria. Even they cannot (yet) control death. This unfortunate combination of high aggression combined with a tendency toward hysteria and emotional instability has proved to be a dangerous and tragic situation over the course of Western history. Their aggression encourages continual Jewish attempts to control societies, while the emotional instability makes it difficult for most Jews to distinguish reasonably between justified social criticism by their non-Jewish neighbors and attacks. Insensitive even to objective concerns about inordinate Jewish influence in societies, and reacting with hysterical aggression to any such supposed “attack” on their behavior and pleas from non-Jews to limit it, Jews have always provoked violence against themselves. And then they, with much emotional satisfaction, feel victimized and attribute the situation to innate “anti-Semitism” among their neighbors. This tragic cycle happened most recently in Nazi Germany, of course, but it had happened previously in almost all European countries. This historical pattern is the social result of Neanderthal genetic traits of high aggression and emotional instability caused by Ice Age psychosexual maladaptation. All this is very clear to me now. But... The Iceman Inheritance as published in 1978 had been written only in terms of “Caucasians”, “Western humanity”, “white men” and so on. But with my research after the New York Times op-ed polemic of July 1992, I soon discovered that it was really a much more relevant pen-portrait of Ashkenazi “Jews”. Some other scattered European ethnic groups share generally similar physical characteristics, of course, but not nearly so strongly and consistently as Ashkenazi Jews. The Ashkenazi Jews, as a group, exhibit lingering Neanderthal traits most strongly among living Caucasians because of Jewish prohibitions against marriage with outsiders. Their Neanderthal genes have been kept “all in the family”, as it were. These Neanderthal genes were not diluted by intermarriage nearly as much as with most other Caucasians. The New York Times had realized this by July 20, 1992 with its vicious and inaccurate editorial, or (as I have said) about six months before I did. I have since had good reasons to suspect that Jewish physical and social anthropologists at New York City’s Columbia University, students of the great Dr. Harold L. Shapiro, had alerted the New York Times to this potentially embarrassing anthropological situation revealed “between the lines” of The Iceman Inheritance. The irony here is that I had spoken with Dr. Shapiro several times when I was working on The Iceman Inheritance about fifteen years earlier under Dr. Carleton Coon’s tutelage (1976-1978). Shapiro himself supported the multi-regional construct of human “racial” evolution and also agreed that Neanderthals had been among the ancestors of some modern Europeans. But he had avoided controversy and censure by publicly (at least) associating himself with the evolution of Far Eastern humanity, or “Sinanthropus” (Peking Man, 1974). There was another reason for Jewish animosity, of course. If the Ashkenazim were really Neanderthal-Caucasoids from the northern Caucasus steppes of Russia and not descendants of biblical Israelites, then what was the United Nations’ justification for creating (1947-1948) modern Israel as the “traditional homeland” of these Ashkenazi Jews? They already had a “traditional homeland”, and a much more appropriate one – the so-called “Jewish Autonomous Region” of the U.S.S.R. The North American public was naturally never told about this “traditional homeland” for Ashkenazi Jews. I remember being stunned when I found this territory marked on a 1950s Soviet map and then queried Russian authorities about it in 1992. The “Soviet Jewish Dissidents” of the 1950s-1990s, who received so much press coverage in North America, preferred to claim false Israelite identity than to admit their real Russian steppe ancestry. The creation of modern Israel was the first major action taken by the UN after the United States had established the world body in 1945-1946. And it was media pressure from New York and Hollywood, of course, that had thoroughly propagandized Americans into sympathy for this creation. With The Iceman Inheritance, I had innocently stepped into an anthropological research mess that challenged both “Jewish” identity and also challenged the geopolitical credibility of modern Israel. No wonder that some fanatical “Jews” wanted to kill me. Nonetheless, during this research of late 1992, I discovered that other Jews besides me had dared to have more loyalty to human truth than to Ashkenazi “Jewish” propaganda. Dr. A.N. Poliak of Tel Aviv University in Israel had written his scholarly Khazaria: The History of a Jewish Kingdom in Europe in 1950 (in Hebrew). The respected Jewish writer, Arthur Koestler, had documented Ashkenazi origins and the implications for modern Israel’s credibility in The Thirteenth Tribe (1976). They had revealed for ordinary readers the conversion to Judaism of a very numerous and powerful Russian steppe tribe called “Khazars”. These steppe Khazars had converted en masse to Judaism about AD 740 in order to avoid religious, cultural and political control by either Moslems in Persia or by Christians in Byzantium. This conversion to Judaism had bolstered their religious independence and had preserved their geopolitical power as middle-men in the overland silk and spice trade with China. These “Jewish” Khazars, along with Alans, Bulgars, Magyars and other minor steppe tribes, were subsequently dispersed all over Central and Eastern Europe about 500 years later by the Mongol invasion of AD 1218. Previously, only specialist historians, like Britain’s J.M. Bury in A History of the Eastern Roman Empire (1912) or Joseph Jacobs’ Jewish Contributions to Western Civilization (1920), had known or cared about this relatively minor episode of history. I had never been very interested in Jewish culture, lore or history and so I had missed all these books and the two by Koestler and Poliak along with Khazaria by the Jewish-dissident archaeologist, A.M. Artamonov. He had verified the existence of this Jewish kingdom by excavating its Volga River capital (1946-1960) and by recovering large amounts of Hebrew-inscribed coins dating from between AD 740 and about 1200. I also discovered that the famous Jewish linguist, Dr. Moishe Miesnes, had verified that Gothic-speaking Khazar refugees fleeing the Mongol invasion had helped create Yiddish (Yid Deutsch, or “Jew German”) in Central and Eastern Europe by about AD 1300 (Die Yiddishe Sprache, 1924). This Russian steppe origin of today’s Ashkenazi “Jews” was not just a “theory” based on squibs by medieval Christian, Moslem and Jewish chroniclers. It was solid and objective historical reality based on linguistics and hard archaeological artifacts. And, with The Iceman Inheritance, my unforgivable crime had been to add very persuasive anthropological data to all the other evidence. And this “data” was also something that anyone could actually see by simply taking a close look at many North American “Jews”. In spite of the New York Times full-page editorial of July 1992 and renewed instant blacklisting by Jewish editors across North America – or maybe because of these attempts at suppression – The Iceman Inheritance was adopted as required reading on “Africana” courses at 54 American universities and colleges. And always, vehement objections were voiced by “white” (i.e. mostly Jewish) faculty members. But the book has now profoundly influenced two generations of non-white students since 1978, and even more since 1992 – mostly African- Americans, but also Asians and Hispanics. Among the tens of thousands of people who have read The Iceman Inheritance, two have now become prominent members of the Bush Administration. They are in a position to influence U.S. policies, especially in the Middle East, and to influence them according to the revelations of The Iceman Inheritance. Attentive newspaper readers and political analysts will remember that the very first year of George Bush’s new U.S. Mideast policy was one of attempted even-handedness toward Palestinians and Israelis. Remember when U.S. Secretary of State, Colin Powell, walked hand-in-hand with Yasser Arafat down the streets of Jerusalem demanding the removal of Israeli roadblocks? Even after the presumed terrorist attacks of “9/11”, the United States remained committed to an independent Palestinian State. In fact, Colin Powell was to have announced this commitment on notorious “9/11”. But subsequent headlines reflected Israel’s determination to undermine that policy, to undermine the Bush Administration and also to expand into Palestinian territories on the West Bank and Gaza. After October 4, 2001, these ongoing incursions into agreed-upon Palestinian land and living space have been labeled as “war crimes” by the United Nations. And also after October 4, 2001, the life and leadership of Yasser Arafat were directly targeted by Israel. For some reason still unknown to history, U.S. policy “towed the Israeli line” after October 4, 2001. This has so far culminated, in March 2003, with the invasion of Iraq, Israel’s most determined adversary in the region. This aggression is not only intended to expand Israel’s borders, but is also a purposeful attempt to provoke Palestinian and Arab outrage and violence. Israel can then “strike back” against Arab “terrorism” by manipulating American power and also use its own sophisticated American weaponry against Palestinians. That is what this dangerous and tragic game is all about. The Iceman Inheritance had proposed that some groups originating in the Caucasus Mountain refuge for lingering Neanderthals, and especially groups that were undiluted by intermarriage, retained a genetic proclivity towards Neanderthal aggression. There were a carefully estimated 400,000 copies of The Iceman Inheritance in print as of 1993, according to Dr. Ray Winbush of Vanderbilt University’s cultural analysis center. These 400,000 copies represented both legitimate and numerous pirated editions. There may be roughly a million copies out there today and I still get about the same number of requests for guest lectures as in 1992. Therefore, there is still a great deal of interest in the book. I have decided to offer a new and revised edition that incorporates relevant anthropological research since 1978. Incorporating this new Foreword, appendices and footnotes that do not impinge upon the original and now-classic text, the recent DNA so-called “research” by politically motivated and predominantly Jewish scientists since 1992 is fully covered. The revisions demonstrate that no actual facts challenge the truth and reality of Neanderthal admixture in all Caucasians and, even more strongly, in “some” ethnic groups of Western humanity. Media-hyped statistical juggling of genetic data has attempted to disguise and distort this anthropological reality in the public’s perception. This ethnic reality had to be disguised, obscured and camouflaged if the real origin of Ashkenazi Jews was to be kept from the North American public that had supported the creation of modern Israel. Since 1978, my increasingly visible book had threatened to unravel the truth. The New York Times editorial against Dr. Len Jeffries in July 1991, and against me and my book in July 1992, had ironically only enhanced “Iceman’s” public notoriety. Something had to be done to defuse and confuse the solid evidence of anthropology on which The Iceman Inheritance was based. The book had argued a higher level of aggression in Caucasians compared to other races (“major genetic groups”) of humanity because of Neanderthal physical and sexual adaptations to “Ice Age” conditions. These adaptations have become “maladaptations” in the present post-glacial world. And The Iceman Inheritance had at least inferred a still higher level of aggression and psychosexual maladaptation in genetic groups that had originated in the Caucasus Mountains, including the Ashkenazim. If there is significant Caucasus Neanderthal genetic admixture in Caucasians – and that is why, after all, Caucasians are called Caucasians – then this fact alone also proves that there are genetic “races” of humanity with slightly different physical characteristics and maybe different mental and emotional tendencies too. Jewish scientists had to do something about this. And they did. On September 27, 1991, Dr. Marc Stoneking of the University of Pennsylvania (and three other Jewish scientists) announced that “the mother of all mankind” had come from somewhere just south of the Sahara about 225,000 years ago and that all of “modern humanity” had descended from her. There were no “races” because we had all come from the same genetic mother and were just one big family. This conclusion by the Stoneking team was based on a “statistical analysis” and “statistical comparison” of mitochrondrial DNA from an alleged worldwide sample of women. Naturally, Stoneking dubbed this primal human mother “Eve”. This was the first time, but not the last, that “statistical” DNA and Y-chromosome studies would be linked to Jewish biblical terminology and personalities. Naturally, the more innocent and uneducated Afro-Americans were thrilled with this news and supported the media-hyped “study”. Eve might well have been Black! Feminists of the time were also flattered and pleased. And, in fact (of course), this “statistical” announcement had been politically engineered precisely in order to gain Black and Feminist support for this biblically-associated propaganda. The truth of the matter was that Stoneking and his cronies had simply ignored the existence of African, European and Chinese skulls that were either transitional or fully modern and known to be 100,000 years older than wholly statistical and hypothetical “Eve”. But not many newspaper readers are physical anthropologists, and even some of the few who were supported the study because it seemed “politically correct” and might undermine “racism”, not because it truly reflected the known facts. The road to hell is paved with good intentions, as someone once observed. Dr. Eric Trinkhaus of the University of New Mexico and many other U.S. anthropologists, but particularly Asian and European anthropologists, branded the study “a statistical house of cards.” This didn’t prevent “Eve” from becoming a pop media sensation in North America. Unfortunately and very cruelly for those who favored the study as a challenge to racism, it was actually just the opposite. It was the first attempt, but not the last, to cover up Caucasian racist proclivities under the statistically juggled “proof” that there were no “races” to possess any such proclivities. As the saying goes, “first come lies, then damn lies and then statistics.” Or, as another common-sense observation warns us, “figures don’t lie, but liars figure.” It took about eight years for educated North American Blacks to get wise to this deception. In March 2000, the Never Again Coalition of mostly non-white students at Canada’s Carleton University in Ottawa asked me to give a talk during “Anti-Racism Week” about the use of anti-racist rhetoric to cloak racist behavior. “Anti-Racism Week” in Canada is partly sponsored by the Canadian government. Naturally, the Jewish “Hillel” organization on campus, very possibly in co-operation with the Canadian Government, managed to prevent my appearance and suppress my presentation. The eventual speaker was someone who mouthed the obligatory politically correct irrelevancies. This “Anti-Racism Week” is also partly sponsored by huge multi-national corporations, like Coke and Pepsi, and all of them are under Jewish banking pressure to expand or else. The Canadian Government relies on these same multi-nationals to under-write at least some Canadian employment. You can see how the land lies, but the high-profile Year 2000 “Anti-Racism Week” in Canada merely made many non-White Carleton students want to puke. And well they should have wanted to puke. But the main challenge to Ashkenazi Jewish identity and to Israel’s credibility was still the much-too-obvious visual fact of Neanderthal physical traits in all Caucasians, but more especially in Central and Eastern European “Jews” who form the great majority of modern Israel’s population. It can be accurately and truthfully said that all of the recent “no-Neanderthal” DNA studies were concocted specifically to challenge The Iceman Inheritance. Dr. Tomas Lindahl of the Imperial Cancer Institute in London, England put it very well in his press statement about the first such media-hyped “no-Neanderthal” DNA study. This so-called “research” was done by Marc Stoneking – again – and Dr. Svaante Paabo (University of Munich) and was published on July 17, 1997 in the journal Cell. Their statistics were a “bad joke”, according to the University of Michigan’s Dr. Milford Wolpoff and a “statistical house of cards”, as Dr. Eric Trinkhaus of the University of New Mexico put it yet again. Nonetheless, Lindahl could say for the press: “I have not examined the Paabo-Stoneking statistics thoroughly, but I support their study because it will lay to rest some bizarre theories about the social implications of Neanderthal admixture in modern humanity” (my italics). The only such “bizarre theory” was and remains The Iceman Inheritance. The Neanderthal genetic legacy in Caucasians is the anthropological explanation for the Western world’s tendencies toward racism, sexism and aggression against all other people and also toward the whole environment – from pure slavery and genocide through colonialism and on to today’s economic globalization. “The mill of the gods grinds slowly, but it grinds exceeding fine” is a homily that might be applied to The Iceman Inheritance. It wasn’t buried by the New York Times on July 20, 1992. In March 2001, the United Nations’ Geneva-based High Commission on Human Rights asked me for copies of three books (The Cronos Complex, The Iceman Inheritance and Chosen People from the Caucasus). The UN also wanted a synopsis of the argument that there was a definite genetic component to world globalization and the Middle Eastern crisis. This material went via UNESCO to Yasser Arafat and to UN Ambassadors all over the world. Some of the anthropological information also went into the delegates’ information kit at the Durban, South Africa conference on racism. Israel’s delegation, and the United States’ delegation (as the creator and supporter of Israel for half a century), both walked out of this conference on Monday, September 3, 2001, just eight days before infamous “9/11”. The Bush Administration had no choice in view of this direct international attack on America’s geopolitical baby, but I know that some top members of the Administration were much opposed to this continued show of unconditional U.S. support for Israel. The B’nai Brith and Canadian Jewish Congress vainly pressured the Canadian delegation to walk out in support of the U.S. and Israel. However, Canada, Britain, France, Italy and the Scandinavian delegations did not walk out of the Durban racism conference. The point of all this is that half a century of U.S. and Israeli propaganda has been unraveled by a growing international awareness of actual anthropological truth. The London-based Afrikan Business and Culture magazine featured a May 2003 interview with me about The Iceman Inheritance. A UK lecture tour has been arranged for me in October 2003. Israeli and North American Ashkenazi “Jews” have, indeed, been “singled out” as a major source of aggression and racism behind the ongoing Middle East crisis and also behind much globalization misery. I will conclude by stressing a point that unfortunately I never previously emphasized. If I seem have to targeted the Ashkenazi “Jews”, it is only because they have so much direct influence upon the policies of Western societies, particularly of the United States. But they are inherently no “worse” than monotheistic Arab-Islamic fundamentalist fanatics in terms of genetic tendencies toward aggression. Any good map will show that the strongholds of Arab-Islamic fundamentalism are still located in the Caucasus Mountains and in those mountain ranges that are contiguous with them. This includes Chechnya in the Caucasus itself, the Zagros Mountains of northern Iraq, the Elburz Range of Iran, the Hindu Kush of Afghanistan and the Pamirs of Pakistan. Indeed, both the Ashkenazi “Jews” and most Arab-Islamic fundamentalist fanatics originated from the very same Neanderthal- Caucasoid genetic stock. That’s what makes the current Middle East confrontation so ironic and frightening. Two very similar groups, only supposedly “separated” by similar “religions”, are engaged in a genetic struggle for eternal identity. This is a biological confrontation, or a “psychobiological” one. The adversaries are incapable of recognizing each other as being human for biological reasons that are explained in The Iceman Inheritance. This new and revised edition of The Iceman Inheritance features the two original Canadian introductions by anthropologist Dr. Judith Posner (York University, Toronto) and Social Work professor Imre de Cspreg Nemeth (Seneca College, Toronto) along with an Introduction written for the legitimate Kayode-Lushena U.S. edition by my good and much-lamented friend, the late Dr. John Henrik Clarke of Hunter College, New York. And, in fact, this new edition of The Iceman Inheritance is dedicated to Dr. Clarke. In return for only a pair of Canadian-made galoshes that I gave him on a bitterly cold day at Chicago's Kennedy-King College, Dr. Clarke gave me great emotional and intellectual wealth -- just a little of his own seemingly boundless courage and compassion. Cover comments by Dr. Len Jeffries and James Smalls of the City College of New York are included.

Kimi Hey Guy's. Selling my Duallist D3 Triple Pedal. These things absolutely rock. Play your double kick technically 3x faster right out of the box. CURRENTLY SOLD OUT WORLD WIDE I bought this pedal set up about 12 months ago From the UK. Cost a fortune Read more ... to buy and ship here to Sydney but I really wanted it so I did it. Loved it straight up, fell straight into unreal triplet grooves like you wouldn't believe. The only thing is I play a lot of heel-toe, very fast heavy stuff, but as my foot size is sz 16.5, axis long boards are about all I can comfortably play. Unfortunately the Duallist is just too short for my gargantuan feet. I barely used them before going on tour the last 8 months. They are in perfect condition they're as new as you could get I promise you will not find one in this condition anywhere especially since the duallist.com site has been sold out for months now. Will ship anywhere at buyers expense. Local drop off is cool near Richmond NSW. Possibly local pick up message me to check. $700- Ono

Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever is Real! This Fridays endangered species article is going to be replaced for this week. This Friday we document briefly on the current Ebola virus that is killing hundreds of people a month. We will continue documenting on th Read more ... e Endangered Species later in the week as usual with further postings as normal. The World Health Organisation today stated that some eight thousand people to date have sadly succumb from the virus. From looking at past events where Ebola has hit the African continent from the months of October to December the spread of Ebola has normally decreased along with deaths too. Unfortunately this is not the case for this outbreak that's claimed the lives of over 8,000 people. Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever doesn't discriminate either. There is no age group that is affected more, the color of ones skin doesn't matter to the virus, religion, faith, culture or whether you are non-African. Ebola kills 90% of its victims in the first fourteen days of becoming infected of which there is still no known vaccination against the worlds most infectious killer virus. Witchcraft, black magic, consumption of pet meat, consumption of any meat, traditional herbal medicines, African healing powers doesn't stop nor kill the virus. Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever is very real and doesn't seem to be slowing down. The continued denial of the virus will only see more people die. Handling dead decomposing bodies that are infectious for up to TWO WEEKS even after death will only spread the virus furthermore. A person infected with Ebola virus will typically develop a fever, a headache, joint and muscle pain, a sore throat, and intense muscle weakness. These symptoms start suddenly between 2 and 21 days after becoming infected. Once infected the chances of survival are slim. Continued hydration (drinking plenty of fluids) mainly clear water has been known to help reduce the virus onset however (not kill) the virus. Water consumption keeps ones immune system in order but must not be seen or used as a medicine to halt the virus. Lucky people that fall ill with the virus whom beat the virus do not stay immune for six months as some press and media have stated. Recovery from Ebola depends on good supportive clinical care and the patient’s immune response. People who recover from Ebola infection develop antibodies that last for at least 10 years. Even with antibodies you can still be struck down with Ebola however your body now knows how to fight the virus and in most cases you'll live. Ebola is very real, there is no government cover-up. Those in denial are not only placing their own lives in danger, but their communities, their families, and the worlds population. This is an unusual outbreak of Ebola – unusual because of its size, over 8,000 dead so far, and its West African epicenter. Ebola, a viral disease that causes massive bleeding and usually death, was discovered in DR Congo in 1976 and erupts on occasion in parts of East Africa. But this outbreak has gained wider international attention for its strength, for its continued spread throughout the region and because of the toll it is taking on health care workers. Denial and ignorance seems to be the biggest killer rather than the virus itself (if that makes any sense). “If I was to judge the main cause of death, it would have to be denial – that it doesn't exist at all,” said Sheik Bawoh, editor of the Freetown newspaper Global Times. Up until now, Ebola has been virtually unheard of in West Africa, with all other outbreaks taking place in the central parts of the continent. So when reports started flooding in of cases sprouting up in Guinea and Liberia, disbelief on the part of both the people on the ground and the central government created a wide-spread disregard for the problem that would eventually establish the perfect conditions for the virus’s breach into Sierra Leone. In fact, it took over six weeks for President Ernest BaiKoroma to even address the issue publicly. The government was ill prepared – very ill prepared!. Imagine: we have an Ebola outbreak in Guinea and Liberia. If the government had carried out preparations as it is doing now on the ground then, we probably wouldn't have gotten to the point where somebody would speculate things like, Oh if you go to the health center, they will inject you and you’ll die. Because people with the virus don’t often develop visible symptoms until around 20 days after initial infection, some patients have died in treatment centers after leaving their homes with little other than a headache. This spawned the shockingly prevalent rumor among the nation’s less-educated that, in effort to combat the disease, “death squads” have been rounding up all sick people in the east to bring them to treatment centers and administer lethal injections, just on the off chance that they would be killing an Ebola-carrying individual. Others have even suggested that the country’s ruling political party, the All People’s Congress, had been orchestrating these “death squads” in an effort to take a chunk out of the opposition’s voter base before then country’s 2014 census. The virus is still continuing to spread though. In areas that have been effected doubt is slowing down, but in areas that haven’t been affected that doubt is still pretty high, and that is the scary part If you come to an urban setting like Freetown where you’d expect people to be well informed, where so many radio stations are talking about Ebola, the national television talking about Ebola, and then you still have people denying that it exists, that is scary. Denial is literally killing people. The belief that traditional African medicine will cure the virus too is nonsense. There is no vaccine, and no cure for Ebola. Some researchers have devolved a medicine called Z-Map but even then they do not fully understand how the experimental drug kills Ebola. Liberian and Sierra Leone government have also "banned the consumption of bush meat" as its believed bush meat is highly responsible for the virus spreading. Yet even touring through west Africa BUSH MEAT is STILL ON SALE and still being consumed by the majority of the public. Monkeys and bats are common sources of bush meat - monkeys and bats are also known to harbor the virus. So if this is known then why are the governments of Liberia and Sierra Leone not doing enough to combat this trade? It could be that bush meat is being consumed not because of it being a staple diet, but more the fact this food is readily available and doesn't cost much to those that live well below the bread line. The term “bush meat” refers to meat that comes from wild animals captured in developing regions of the world such as Africa. Bush meat comes from a variety of wild animals, including bats, nonhuman primates (e.g., monkeys), cane rats (grasscutters), and duiker (antelope). It is often smoked, dried, or salted and considered a treat to some, a main food source to others. Ebola is a rare and deadly disease that is spread through direct contact with the blood or body fluids of a person who is sick with or died from Ebola. Generally, Ebola is not spread by food; however, in Africa human infections have been associated with hunting, butchering, and processing meat from infected animals. Bush meat could be infected with germs that can cause sickness in people, including the Ebola virus. Ebola is not generally spread through food, but the hunting, butchering, and processing of bush meat brings people into contact with blood and other fluids of a potentially infected animal. Ebola infections in people have been associated with handling and eating infected animals. What's even more worrying is that bush meat can be found on many European and American markets - most of which has derived from Africa and could potentially be harboring the worlds most deadly and feared virus. Dogs can host the Ebola virus however the chances of your own dog catching the virus is slim - slim unless of course you have been infected and your dog has come into contact with your own bodily fluids. Dogs in west Africa normally pick up Ebola in more or less the same way humans do - by directly coming into contact with diseased or dead carrion. Stray dogs are a common site in west Africa. They also feed by foraging off the forest floor. A dead monkey for instance that has the virus could then be passed onto the dog. Dogs are known to frequent local villagers and communities, coming into contact with humans. A lick of the face or the human coming into contact with the bodily fluids of the dog that's infected is more than likely to become infected with the virus. Dog meat if not cooked properly I.e the dead diseased dog is under cooked or not washed can and has shown in scientific studies to pass the virus on. The myth that is now spreading - DOGS CANNOT CATCH EBOLA is complete utter nonsense. Dogs like now many animals (mostly wild) can catch Ebola which was proven in 2001-2002. Anyone that places human life in danger via keeping an animal alive will Ebola that will die from the virus are just as foolish as those whom believe the virus is not real! http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3298261/ During the 2001–2002 outbreak in Gabon, we observed that several dogs were highly exposed to Ebola virus by eating infected dead animals. To examine whether these animals became infected with Ebola virus, we sampled 439 dogs and screened them by Ebola virus–specific immunoglobulin (Ig) G assay, antigen detection, and viral polymerase chain reaction amplification. Seven (8.9%) of 79 samples from the 2 main towns, 15 (15.2%) of 14 the 99 samples from Mekambo, and 40 (25.2%) of 159 samples from villages in the Ebola virus–epidemic area had detectable Ebola virus–IgG, compared to only 2 (2%) of 102 samples from France. Among dogs from villages with both infected animal carcasses and human cases, seroprevalence was 31.8%. A significant positive direct association existed between seroprevalence and the distances to the Ebola virus–epidemic area. This study suggests that dogs can be infected by Ebola virus and that the putative infection is asymptomatic. So in all the consumption of both dead carrion, bush meat, and dogs in West Africa infected with the virus will only see the virus continue to spread. Denial and ignorance regarding the virus will again see more people die from the virus. If the virus is not halted soon we're going to see deaths spreading internationally more. People in West Africa are scared, many are fleeing their native countries. Illegal asylum seekers are making their way from west Africa into Europe. It tales twenty one days for the virus to really show itself. It takes TEN HOURS to fly from Africa to London. http://youtu.be/uR4QeBg8WGk Thanks for reading Dr Jose C.

A:shiwi A:wan Museum and Heritage Center
Our End of the Year Request Since 1992 the A:shiwi A:wan Museum and Heritage Center has served the Zuni community and the general public with programming and exhibitions relevant to Zuni culture, history, art, and tradition. The AAMHC is well-known Read more ... in the field of museology and has a strong international presence and influence. Our local and culturally centered model of knowledge sharing blends strong local relationships, collaborations, and strong Zuni-leadership to catalyze meaningful and lasting understanding of Zuni and the region. Our 501(c)3 non-profit museum is located in the heart of the Zuni community and we raise all our operational, project, and endowment funds from private sources. As a non-profit institution, we also stand as an example of why non-governmental organizations have an important role in reservation communities and economies. As a Zuni-led and staffed museum, we know the community we serve. Like those we serve, the Zuni region is our home and has been for our families for thousands of years. We have deep cultural knowledge and solid professionalism that enables us to be effective and efficient resulting in more powerful educational outcomes. The AAMHC is committed to sustaining the heritage and life ways of the Zuni people. Meanwhile a confluence of factors threatens the Zuni world, and powerful solutions are needed now to preserve and maintain our heritage. In addition to regular programming and seasonal events, a few of our 2014 efforts included: • A:shiwi A:wan Ulohnanne - Zuni World Exhibition. A collection of 31 Zuni map art paintings exhibited at several museums including most recently the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. • Development of Amidolanne. An innovative and unprecedented collections database that incorporates over ten thousand cataloged Zuni items housed in seven major museums. Amidolanne enables inclusion of local Zuni commentary into existing catalog descriptions via text, audio, or video media. • Setting the Record Straight. A film documentary about Zuni tribal members’ 2013 campaign to remake a 1923 ethnographic film of the sacred Shalako ceremony. • 1960s Analog Audio Tape Digitization. More than 400 hours of Zuni elders’ interviews during the 1960’s is digitized and played back during our story telling season. • Revival of Zuni Basket making. As recently as five years ago, there were only three traditional Zuni basket makers. With continuing AAMHC basket making workshops, a core group of Zuni basket makers has revitalized the tradition and are sharing their knowledge with others. • Zuni Day School Exhibition. A collection at the AAMHC featuring writings, art, and photos of Zuni students attending the ZDS between 1920 and 1960. • A:shiwi Doye:nakwe. A year-round illumination of traditional Zuni agriculture culminating in an annual fall event to honor and celebrate Zuni gardening. • Research Assistance. We are a resource for Zuni students at all levels, from elementary school projects to graduate students’ research, we are in-service to those that wish to learn. The AAMHC is a relatively small museum doing big things in the field of museology. We sincerely believe we are one of our nation’s most important museums, unique in our approach to serving the Zuni community and authoritative in methods to inform and influence other museums and the world about Native America. We fill gaps that schools and families may not be able to fill. With Zuni experts and staff we also serve as a forum to reflect and create solutions to even the most challenging problems facing our community. But we cannot do this good work without help. As you are probably aware, the 2008 recession and its lingering affects were devastating to many small non-profits and the A:shiwi A:wan Museum was not spared. To make matters more difficult many foundations reduced or suspended grant making to rebuild their assets. Meanwhile our modest endowment is dwindling. If you are able, this is where you can help. With your generous contribution, the AAMHC will continue to provide fine Zuni heritage programming and exhibitions for the Zuni community and create opportunities for the world public to learn about Zuni from an authoritative voice. Contributions of $50 or more will receive the A:shiwi A:wan Ulohnanne – The Zuni World exhibition catalog signed by artists featured in the exhibit. Contributions of $100 or more will receive a personalized guided tour of the A:shiwi A:wan Museum and Heritage Center by our director and staff as well as the exhibit catalog. We would be pleased to discuss larger contributions that would be mutually beneficial to a donor and the A:shiwi A:wan Museum. Please send contributions to: A:shiwi A:wan Museum and Heritage Center P.O. Box 1009, Zuni, NM 87327 Elahkwa and please share this post widely

It tales twenty one days for the virus to really show itself. It takes TEN HOURS to fly from Africa to London. http://youtu.be/uR4QeBg8WGk Thanks for reading Dr Jose C.

Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever is Real! This Fridays endangered species article is going to be replaced for this week. This Friday we document briefly on the current Ebola virus that is killing hundreds of people a month. We will continue documenting on th Read more ... e Endangered Species later in the week as usual with further postings as normal. The World Health Organisation today stated that some eight thousand people to date have sadly succumb from the virus. From looking at past events where Ebola has hit the African continent from the months of October to December the spread of Ebola has normally decreased along with deaths too. Unfortunately this is not the case for this outbreak that's claimed the lives of over 8,000 people. Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever doesn't discriminate either. There is no age group that is affected more, the color of ones skin doesn't matter to the virus, religion, faith, culture or whether you are non-African. Ebola kills 90% of its victims in the first fourteen days of becoming infected of which there is still no known vaccination against the worlds most infectious killer virus. Witchcraft, black magic, consumption of pet meat, consumption of any meat, traditional herbal medicines, African healing powers doesn't stop nor kill the virus. Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever is very real and doesn't seem to be slowing down. The continued denial of the virus will only see more people die. Handling dead decomposing bodies that are infectious for up to TWO WEEKS even after death will only spread the virus furthermore. A person infected with Ebola virus will typically develop a fever, a headache, joint and muscle pain, a sore throat, and intense muscle weakness. These symptoms start suddenly between 2 and 21 days after becoming infected. Once infected the chances of survival are slim. Continued hydration (drinking plenty of fluids) mainly clear water has been known to help reduce the virus onset however (not kill) the virus. Water consumption keeps ones immune system in order but must not be seen or used as a medicine to halt the virus. Lucky people that fall ill with the virus whom beat the virus do not stay immune for six months as some press and media have stated. Recovery from Ebola depends on good supportive clinical care and the patient’s immune response. People who recover from Ebola infection develop antibodies that last for at least 10 years. Even with antibodies you can still be struck down with Ebola however your body now knows how to fight the virus and in most cases you'll live. Ebola is very real, there is no government cover-up. Those in denial are not only placing their own lives in danger, but their communities, their families, and the worlds population. This is an unusual outbreak of Ebola – unusual because of its size, over 8,000 dead so far, and its West African epicenter. Ebola, a viral disease that causes massive bleeding and usually death, was discovered in DR Congo in 1976 and erupts on occasion in parts of East Africa. But this outbreak has gained wider international attention for its strength, for its continued spread throughout the region and because of the toll it is taking on health care workers. Denial and ignorance seems to be the biggest killer rather than the virus itself (if that makes any sense). “If I was to judge the main cause of death, it would have to be denial – that it doesn't exist at all,” said Sheik Bawoh, editor of the Freetown newspaper Global Times. Up until now, Ebola has been virtually unheard of in West Africa, with all other outbreaks taking place in the central parts of the continent. So when reports started flooding in of cases sprouting up in Guinea and Liberia, disbelief on the part of both the people on the ground and the central government created a wide-spread disregard for the problem that would eventually establish the perfect conditions for the virus’s breach into Sierra Leone. In fact, it took over six weeks for President Ernest BaiKoroma to even address the issue publicly. The government was ill prepared – very ill prepared!. Imagine: we have an Ebola outbreak in Guinea and Liberia. If the government had carried out preparations as it is doing now on the ground then, we probably wouldn't have gotten to the point where somebody would speculate things like, Oh if you go to the health center, they will inject you and you’ll die. Because people with the virus don’t often develop visible symptoms until around 20 days after initial infection, some patients have died in treatment centers after leaving their homes with little other than a headache. This spawned the shockingly prevalent rumor among the nation’s less-educated that, in effort to combat the disease, “death squads” have been rounding up all sick people in the east to bring them to treatment centers and administer lethal injections, just on the off chance that they would be killing an Ebola-carrying individual. Others have even suggested that the country’s ruling political party, the All People’s Congress, had been orchestrating these “death squads” in an effort to take a chunk out of the opposition’s voter base before then country’s 2014 census. The virus is still continuing to spread though. In areas that have been effected doubt is slowing down, but in areas that haven’t been affected that doubt is still pretty high, and that is the scary part If you come to an urban setting like Freetown where you’d expect people to be well informed, where so many radio stations are talking about Ebola, the national television talking about Ebola, and then you still have people denying that it exists, that is scary. Denial is literally killing people. The belief that traditional African medicine will cure the virus too is nonsense. There is no vaccine, and no cure for Ebola. Some researchers have devolved a medicine called Z-Map but even then they do not fully understand how the experimental drug kills Ebola. Liberian and Sierra Leone government have also "banned the consumption of bush meat" as its believed bush meat is highly responsible for the virus spreading. Yet even touring through west Africa BUSH MEAT is STILL ON SALE and still being consumed by the majority of the public. Monkeys and bats are common sources of bush meat - monkeys and bats are also known to harbor the virus. So if this is known then why are the governments of Liberia and Sierra Leone not doing enough to combat this trade? It could be that bush meat is being consumed not because of it being a staple diet, but more the fact this food is readily available and doesn't cost much to those that live well below the bread line. The term “bush meat” refers to meat that comes from wild animals captured in developing regions of the world such as Africa. Bush meat comes from a variety of wild animals, including bats, nonhuman primates (e.g., monkeys), cane rats (grasscutters), and duiker (antelope). It is often smoked, dried, or salted and considered a treat to some, a main food source to others. Ebola is a rare and deadly disease that is spread through direct contact with the blood or body fluids of a person who is sick with or died from Ebola. Generally, Ebola is not spread by food; however, in Africa human infections have been associated with hunting, butchering, and processing meat from infected animals. Bush meat could be infected with germs that can cause sickness in people, including the Ebola virus. Ebola is not generally spread through food, but the hunting, butchering, and processing of bush meat brings people into contact with blood and other fluids of a potentially infected animal. Ebola infections in people have been associated with handling and eating infected animals. What's even more worrying is that bush meat can be found on many European and American markets - most of which has derived from Africa and could potentially be harboring the worlds most deadly and feared virus. Dogs can host the Ebola virus however the chances of your own dog catching the virus is slim - slim unless of course you have been infected and your dog has come into contact with your own bodily fluids. Dogs in west Africa normally pick up Ebola in more or less the same way humans do - by directly coming into contact with diseased or dead carrion. Stray dogs are a common site in west Africa. They also feed by foraging off the forest floor. A dead monkey for instance that has the virus could then be passed onto the dog. Dogs are known to frequent local villagers and communities, coming into contact with humans. A lick of the face or the human coming into contact with the bodily fluids of the dog that's infected is more than likely to become infected with the virus. Dog meat if not cooked properly I.e the dead diseased dog is under cooked or not washed can and has shown in scientific studies to pass the virus on. The myth that is now spreading - DOGS CANNOT CATCH EBOLA is complete utter nonsense. Dogs like now many animals (mostly wild) can catch Ebola which was proven in 2001-2002. Anyone that places human life in danger via keeping an animal alive will Ebola that will die from the virus are just as foolish as those whom believe the virus is not real! http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3298261/ During the 2001–2002 outbreak in Gabon, we observed that several dogs were highly exposed to Ebola virus by eating infected dead animals. To examine whether these animals became infected with Ebola virus, we sampled 439 dogs and screened them by Ebola virus–specific immunoglobulin (Ig) G assay, antigen detection, and viral polymerase chain reaction amplification. Seven (8.9%) of 79 samples from the 2 main towns, 15 (15.2%) of 14 the 99 samples from Mekambo, and 40 (25.2%) of 159 samples from villages in the Ebola virus–epidemic area had detectable Ebola virus–IgG, compared to only 2 (2%) of 102 samples from France. Among dogs from villages with both infected animal carcasses and human cases, seroprevalence was 31.8%. A significant positive direct association existed between seroprevalence and the distances to the Ebola virus–epidemic area. This study suggests that dogs can be infected by Ebola virus and that the putative infection is asymptomatic. So in all the consumption of both dead carrion, bush meat, and dogs in West Africa infected with the virus will only see the virus continue to spread. Denial and ignorance regarding the virus will again see more people die from the virus. If the virus is not halted soon we're going to see deaths spreading internationally more. People in West Africa are scared, many are fleeing their native countries. Illegal asylum seekers are making their way from west Africa into Europe. It tales twenty one days for the virus to really show itself. It takes TEN HOURS to fly from Africa to London. http://youtu.be/uR4QeBg8WGk Thanks for reading Dr Jose C.

A:shiwi A:wan Museum and Heritage Center
Our End of the Year Request Since 1992 the A:shiwi A:wan Museum and Heritage Center has served the Zuni community and the general public with programming and exhibitions relevant to Zuni culture, history, art, and tradition. The AAMHC is well-known Read more ... in the field of museology and has a strong international presence and influence. Our local and culturally centered model of knowledge sharing blends strong local relationships, collaborations, and strong Zuni-leadership to catalyze meaningful and lasting understanding of Zuni and the region. Our 501(c)3 non-profit museum is located in the heart of the Zuni community and we raise all our operational, project, and endowment funds from private sources. As a non-profit institution, we also stand as an example of why non-governmental organizations have an important role in reservation communities and economies. As a Zuni-led and staffed museum, we know the community we serve. Like those we serve, the Zuni region is our home and has been for our families for thousands of years. We have deep cultural knowledge and solid professionalism that enables us to be effective and efficient resulting in more powerful educational outcomes. The AAMHC is committed to sustaining the heritage and life ways of the Zuni people. Meanwhile a confluence of factors threatens the Zuni world, and powerful solutions are needed now to preserve and maintain our heritage. In addition to regular programming and seasonal events, a few of our 2014 efforts included: • A:shiwi A:wan Ulohnanne - Zuni World Exhibition. A collection of 31 Zuni map art paintings exhibited at several museums including most recently the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. • Development of Amidolanne. An innovative and unprecedented collections database that incorporates over ten thousand cataloged Zuni items housed in seven major museums. Amidolanne enables inclusion of local Zuni commentary into existing catalog descriptions via text, audio, or video media. • Setting the Record Straight. A film documentary about Zuni tribal members’ 2013 campaign to remake a 1923 ethnographic film of the sacred Shalako ceremony. • 1960s Analog Audio Tape Digitization. More than 400 hours of Zuni elders’ interviews during the 1960’s is digitized and played back during our story telling season. • Revival of Zuni Basket making. As recently as five years ago, there were only three traditional Zuni basket makers. With continuing AAMHC basket making workshops, a core group of Zuni basket makers has revitalized the tradition and are sharing their knowledge with others. • Zuni Day School Exhibition. A collection at the AAMHC featuring writings, art, and photos of Zuni students attending the ZDS between 1920 and 1960. • A:shiwi Doye:nakwe. A year-round illumination of traditional Zuni agriculture culminating in an annual fall event to honor and celebrate Zuni gardening. • Research Assistance. We are a resource for Zuni students at all levels, from elementary school projects to graduate students’ research, we are in-service to those that wish to learn. The AAMHC is a relatively small museum doing big things in the field of museology. We sincerely believe we are one of our nation’s most important museums, unique in our approach to serving the Zuni community and authoritative in methods to inform and influence other museums and the world about Native America. We fill gaps that schools and families may not be able to fill. With Zuni experts and staff we also serve as a forum to reflect and create solutions to even the most challenging problems facing our community. But we cannot do this good work without help. As you are probably aware, the 2008 recession and its lingering affects were devastating to many small non-profits and the A:shiwi A:wan Museum was not spared. To make matters more difficult many foundations reduced or suspended grant making to rebuild their assets. Meanwhile our modest endowment is dwindling. If you are able, this is where you can help. With your generous contribution, the AAMHC will continue to provide fine Zuni heritage programming and exhibitions for the Zuni community and create opportunities for the world public to learn about Zuni from an authoritative voice. Contributions of $50 or more will receive the A:shiwi A:wan Ulohnanne – The Zuni World exhibition catalog signed by artists featured in the exhibit. Contributions of $100 or more will receive a personalized guided tour of the A:shiwi A:wan Museum and Heritage Center by our director and staff as well as the exhibit catalog. We would be pleased to discuss larger contributions that would be mutually beneficial to a donor and the A:shiwi A:wan Museum.

Samuel So, it's time for us to get going! Some of you know that we have been waiting on visa permission to move country and this process has taken way longer than we either expected or indeed was suggested by the (US) government. The issue we have now is Read more ... that our visa extension in Canada is almost up and so we need to move on. It has been on our minds and hearts to spend the rest of our days doing something that we both feel is worthwhile and important and it comes down to two things. We will continue to perform and tour as The Sweet Sorrows and 2015 is looking uber cool with a world wide tour taking us to Asia, Australia, USA, Canada, UK & Ireland, Germany and other parts of Europe. This will hopefully be our 'bread and butter' but the other side of the coin is that we will be living and working in Thailand for some of each year with 'Mercy House'(MHM), a fantastic charity that helps rescue vulnerable children from poverty, abuse and the sex industry that is so prevalent in the country. As time progresses, we will spend more time in Thailand as we can, and in January Sammy will be starting a 'trade school' for rescued boys, to teach them and apprentice them to be Electricians. Kylie will help with medical/health teaching, training and no doubt, just helping. We will be on a plane for Chiang Mai early in January to start what we hope will be a continuing success story with these little ones. We will also play some music there of course and possibly even help with training kids in live sound and audio. We both truly believe that art and expression is a currency that is important in this world. Australian anthropologist John Smith once told me that :"The Arts are the nerve endings of our society." Artists are intuitive and feel what is good and bad, right and wrong, uplifting or destructive and so the singers, the story tellers, the poets and the bards have an increasingly important role in our world...and we know we can uplift, challenge, observe and report in our stories and songs better than through any other medium.... and we can love. It is also true that if we see things that we can help change, make better, and just get on with, then we think it is our responsibility to do so. Especially where the children, poor and marginalized are concerned. So, in January 2015, we will endeavour to make one small corner of the world a better place through the gifts we have in music, trade skills and professional skills. We'd love to hear from you, do write to us, drop us a letter or email and maybe you could even pay us a visit and use that thing you do to help some of those less fortunate....good vibes, prayers and love are all welcome...here we go! Peace, Sammy & Kylie

He wrote copious commentaries on the Vedic canon (Brahma Sutras, principal upanishads and Bhagavad Gita) in support of his thesis. The main opponent in his work is the Mīmāṃsā school of thought, though he also offers arguments against the views of some other schools like Samkhya and certain schools of Buddhism.[7][8][9] Shankara travelled across the Indian subcontinent to propagate his philosophy through discourses and debates with other thinkers. He established the importance of monastic life as sanctioned in the Upanishads and Brahma Sutra, in a time when the Mīmāṃsā school established strict ritualism and ridiculed monasticism. He is reputed to have founded four mathas ("monasteries"), which helped in the historical development, revival and spread of Advaita Vedanta of which he is known as the greatest revivalist.[6] Adi Shankara is believed to be the organiser of the Dashanami monastic order and the founder of the Shanmata tradition of worship.

The most important among these biographies are the Mādhavīya Śaṅkara Vijayaṃ (of Mādhava, c. 14th century), the Cidvilāsīya Śaṅkara Vijayaṃ (of Cidvilāsa, c. between the 15th and 17th centuries), and the Keraļīya Śaṅkara Vijayaṃ (of the Kerala region, extant from c. the 17th century).[10][11] Birth Dates Several different dates have been proposed for Shankara: 788–820 CE: This is the mainstream scholarly opinion, placing Shankara in mid to late 8th century CE. These dates are based on records at the Śṛṅgeri Śāradā Pīṭha, which is the only matha to have maintained a relatively unbroken record of its Acharyas; starting with the third Acharya, one can with reasonable confidence date the others from the 8th century to the present.[12] The Sringeri records state that Shankara was born in the 14th year of the reign of "VikramAditya", but it is unclear as to which king this name refers. Though some researchers identify the name with Chandragupta II (4th century CE), modern scholarship accepts the VikramAditya as being from the Chalukya dynasty of Badami, most likely Vikramaditya II (733–746 CE),[13] which would place him in the middle of the 8th century.[12] Max Müller, Macdonnel, Pathok, Deussen and Radhakrishnan all accept the dates 788–820 CE.[3] The date 788–820 is also among those considered acceptable by Swami Tapasyananda, though he raises a number of questions.[14][15] 509–477 BCE: This dating, more than a millennium ahead of all others, is based on records of the heads of the Shankara Maṭhas at Dvaraka Pitha and Govardhana matha and the fifth Peetham at Kanchi.[4] However, the succession of acharyas at these two mathas were often disrupted by geopolitical realities and these records are not considered as reliable as the Sringeri chronology. Also, such an early date would be in conflict with much else in Indian chronology. According to these revisionist models, these are the actual dates, and it is other collateral dates, such as the date of Gautama Buddha (which serves as an anchor for modern academic history of India), that need to be moved back. However, such an early date is not consistent with the fact that Shankara quotes the Buddhist logician Dharmakirti, who finds mention in Xuanzang (7th century).[12] Also, his near-contemporary Kumārila Bhaṭṭa is usually dated c. 8th century CE. Most scholars feel that due to invasions and other discontinuities, the records of the Dwaraka and Govardhana mathas are not as reliable as those of Sringeri.[12] Thus, while considerable debate exists, the pre-Christian Era dates are usually discounted, and the most likely period for Shankara is during the 8th century CE. 44–12 BCE: the commentator Anandagiri believed he was born at Chidambaram in 44 BCE and died in 12 BCE.[3] 6th century CE: Telang placed him in this century. Sir R. G. Bhandarkar believed he was born in 680 CE.[3] 805–897: A D Venkiteswara not only places Shankara later than most, but also had the opinion that it would not have been possible for him to have achieved all the works apportioned to him, and has him live ninety two years.[3] Childhood The birthplace of Adi Shankara at Kalady Adi Sankara Keerthi Sthampa Mandapam, Kalady, Kerala Shankara was born in Kaladi in present day central Kerala, India. According to lore, it was after his parents, who had been childless for many years, prayed at the Vadakkunnathan temple, Thrissur, that Shiva appeared to both husband and wife in their dreams, and offered them a choice: a mediocre son who would live a long life, or an extraordinary son who would not live long. Both the parents chose the latter; thus a son was born to them. He was named Shankara (Sanskrit, "bestower of happiness"), in honour of Shiva (one of whose epithets is Shankara).[16] His father died while Shankara was very young. Shankara's upanayanam, the initiation into student-life, had to be delayed due to the death of his father, and was then performed by his mother.[17] As a child, Shankara showed remarkable scholarship, mastering the four Vedas by the age of eight.[18] Sannyasa At the age of 8, Shankara was inclined towards sannyasa, but it was only after much persuasion that his mother finally gave her consent. According to legend, he received her consent in a very interesting manner too. While bathing in the river Poorna one day, a crocodile caught hold of his leg and appeared to be about to devour him. Shankara appealed to his mother, who had arrived at Poorna, asking for permission to become a sanyasi at least in these last moments of his life. His mother finally gave consent, only to have the crocodile let go of young Shankara. A crocodile had never been found in Poorna ever since.[19] Shankara then left Kerala and travelled towards North India in search of a guru. On the banks of the Narmada River, he met Govinda Bhagavatpada the disciple of Gaudapada at Omkareshwar. When Govinda Bhagavatpada asked Shankara's identity, he replied with an extempore verse that brought out the Advaita Vedanta philosophy. Govinda Bhagavatapada was impressed and took Shankara as his disciple.[20] The guru instructed Shankara to write a commentary on the Brahma Sutras and propagate the Advaita philosophy. Shankara travelled to Kashi, where a young man named Sanandana, hailing from Chola territory in South India, became his first disciple. According to legend, while on his way to the Vishwanath Temple, an untouchable accompanied by four dogs came in the way of Sankara. When asked to move aside by Shankara's disciples, the untouchable replied: "Do you wish that I move my ever lasting Ātman ("the Self"), or this body made of flesh?" Realizing that the untouchable was none other than god Shiva himself, and his dogs the four Vedas, Shankara prostrated himself before him, composing five shlokas known as Manisha Panchakam.[21][22] At Badari he wrote his famous Bhashyas ("commentaries") and Prakarana granthas ("philosophical treatises").[23][24] Meeting with Mandana Mishra Sharada Peeth (Sarvajnapeetha) temple, now in Pakistan-administered Kashmir Main article: Maṇḍana Miśra One of the most famous debates of Adi Shankara was with the ritualist Maṇḍana Miśra. Maṇḍana Miśra held the view that the life of a householder was far superior to that of a monk. This view was widely shared and respected throughout India at that time.[25] Thus it would have been important for Adi Shankara to debate with him. Madana Mishra's guru was the famous Mīmāṃsā philosopher, Kumārila Bhaṭṭa. Shankara sought a debate with Kumārila Bhaṭṭa and met him in Prayag where he had buried himself in a slow burning pyre to repent for sins committed against his guru: Kumārila Bhaṭṭa had learned Buddhist philosophy from his Buddhist guru under false pretenses, in order to be able to refute it. Learning anything without the knowledge of one's guru while still under his authority constitutes a sin according to the Vedas.[26] Kumārila Bhaṭṭa thus asked Adi Shankara to proceed to Mahiṣmati to meet Maṇḍana Miśra and debate with him instead.(Mahishmati is on the banks of the holy river – Narmada, in Madhya Pradesh. Mahishmati is now known as Mandala. Mandala finds mention in Pauranic literature as the capital of Sahasrabahu Kartyaveer Arjun who had obstructed the river by his thousand arms by his frolicking, at his capital Mahishmati), After debating for over fifteen days, with Maṇḍana Miśra's wife Ubhaya Bhāratī acting as referee, Maṇḍana Miśra accepted defeat.[27] Ubhaya Bhāratī then challenged Adi Shankara to have a debate with her in order to 'complete' the victory. She asked him questions related to sexual congress between man and woman – a subject in which Shankaracharya had no knowledge, since he was a true celibate and sannyasi. Sri Shankracharya asked for a "recess" of 15 days. As per legend, he used the art of "para-kaya pravesa" (the spirit leaving one's own body and entering another's) and exited his own body, which he asked his disciples to look after, and psychically entered the dead body of a king. The story goes that from the King's two wives, he acquired all knowledge of "art of love". The queens, thrilled at the keen intellect and robust love-making of the "revived" King, deduced that he was not their husband, as of old. The story continues that they sent their factotums to "look for the lifeless body of a young sadhu and to cremate it immediately" so that their "king" (Shankracharya in the king's body) would continue to live with them. Just as the retainers piled Shankracharaya's lifeless corpse upon a pyre and were about to set fire to it, Shankara entered his own body and regained consciousness. Finally, he answered all questions put to him by Ubhaya Bhāratī; and she allowed Maṇḍana Miśra to accept sannyasa with the monastic name Sureśvarācārya, as per the agreed-upon rules of the debate.[28] Philosophical tour Sharada temple at Sringeri Sharada Peetham, Sringeri Adi Shankara then travelled with his disciples to Maharashtra and Srisailam. In Srisailam, he composed Shivanandalahari, a devotional hymn in praise of Shiva. The Madhaviya Shankaravijayam says that when Shankara was about to be sacrificed by a Kapalika, the god Narasimha appeared to save Shankara in response to Padmapadacharya's prayer to him. As a result, Adi Shankara composed the Laksmi-Narasimha stotra.[29] Sarvajna Peetha, on Kodachadri peak, near Kollur where Adi Shankara is believed to have meditated He then travelled to Gokarṇa, the temple of Hari-Shankara and the Mūkambika temple at Kollur. At Kollur, he accepted as his disciple a boy believed to be dumb by his parents. He gave him the name, Hastāmalakācārya ("one with the amalaka fruit on his palm", i.e., one who has clearly realised the Self). Next, he visited sringeri to establish the Śārada Pīṭham and made Sureśvarācārya his disciple.[30] After this, Adi Shankara began a Dig-vijaya "tour of conquest" for the propagation of the Advaita philosophy by controverting all philosophies opposed to it. He travelled throughout India, from South India to Kashmir and Nepal, preaching to the local populace and debating philosophy with Hindu, Buddhist and other scholars and monks along the way. With the Malayali King Sudhanva as companion, Shankara passed through Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Vidarbha. He then started towards Karnataka where he encountered a band of armed Kapalikas. King Sudhanva, with his Nairs, resisted and defeated the Kapalikas. They safely reached Gokarna where Shankara defeated in debate the Shaiva scholar, Neelakanta. Proceeding to Saurashtra (the ancient Kambhoja) and having visited the shrines of Girnar, Somnath and Prabhasa and explaining the superiority of Vedanta in all these places, he arrived at Dwarka. Bhaṭṭa Bhāskara of Ujjayini, the proponent of Bhedābeda philosophy, was humbled. All the scholars of Ujjayini (also known as Avanti) accepted Adi Shankara's philosophy. He then defeated the Jainas in philosophical debates at a place called Bahlika. Thereafter, the Acharya established his victory over several philosophers and ascetics in Kamboja (region of North Kashmir), Darada and many regions situated in the desert and crossing mighty peaks, entered Kashmir. Later, he had an encounter with a tantrik, Navagupta at Kamarupa.[31] Accession to Sarvajnapitha Idol of Adi Shankara at his Samadhi Mandir, behind Kedarnath Temple, in Kedarnath, India Adi Shankara visited Sarvajñapīṭha (Sharada Peeth) in Kashmir (now in Azad Kashmir).[32] The Madhaviya Shankaravijayam states this temple had four doors for scholars from the four cardinal directions. The southern door (representing South India) had never been opened, indicating that no scholar from South India had entered the Sarvajna Pitha. Adi Shankara opened the southern door by defeating in debate all the scholars there in all the various scholastic disciplines such as Mīmāṃsā, Vedanta and other branches of Hindu philosophy; he ascended the throne of Transcendent wisdom of that temple.[33] Towards the end of his life, Adi Shankara travelled to the Himalayan area of Kedarnath-Badrinath and attained videha mukti ("freedom from embodiment"). There is a samadhi mandir dedicated to Adi Shankara behind the Kedarnath temple. However, there are variant traditions on the location of his last days. One tradition, expounded by Keraliya Shankaravijaya, places his place of mahasamadhi (leaving the body) as Vadakkunnathan temple in Thrissur, Kerala.[34] The followers of the Kanchi kamakoti pitha claim that he ascended the Sarvajñapīṭha and attained videha mukti in Kanchipuram (Tamil Nadu). Mathas See also: Dashanami Sampradaya (Vidyashankara temple) at Sringeri Sharada Peetham, Shringeri Advaita Vedanta is, at least in the west, primarily known as a philosophical system. But it is also a tradition of renunciation. Philosophy and renunciation are closely related:[web 1] Most of the notable authors in the advaita tradition were members of the sannyasa tradition, and both sides of the tradition share the same values, attitudes and metaphysics.[web 1] Shankara, himself considered to be an incarnation of Shiva,[web 1] established the Dashanami Sampradaya, organizing a section of the Ekadandi monks under an umbrella grouping of ten names.[web 1] Several other Hindu monastic and Ekadandi traditions remained outside the organisation of the Dasanāmis.[35][36][37] Adi Sankara organised the Hindu monks of these ten sects or names under four Maṭhas (Sanskrit: मठ) (monasteries), with the headquarters at Dvārakā in the West, Jagannatha Puri in the East, Sringeri in the South and Badrikashrama in the North.[web 1] Each math was headed by one of his four main disciples, who each continues the Vedanta Sampradaya. According to Pandey, these Mathas were not established by Shankara himself, but were originally ashrams established by Vibhāņdaka and his son Ŗșyaśŗnga.[38] Shankara inherited the ashrams at Dvārakā and Sringeri, and shifted the ashram at Śŗngaverapura to Badarikāśrama, and the ashram at Angadeśa to Jagannātha Purī.[39] Monks of these ten orders differ in part in their beliefs and practices, and a section of them is not considered to be restricted to specific changes made by Shankara. While the dasanāmis associated with the Sankara maths follow the procedures enumerated by Adi Śankara, some of these orders remained partly or fully independent in their belief and practices; and outside the official control of the Sankara maths. The advaita sampradaya is not a Saiva sect,[web 1][40] despite the historical links with Shaivism: Advaitins are non-sectarian, and they advocate worship of Siva and Visnu equally with that of the other deities of Hinduism, like Sakti, Ganapati and others.[web 1] Nevertheless, contemporary Sankaracaryas have more influence among Saiva communities than among Vaisnava communities.[web 1] The greatest influence of the gurus of the advaita tradition has been among followers of the Smartha Tradition, who integrate the domestic Vedic ritual with devotional aspects of Hinduism.[web 1] According to Nakamura, these mathas contributed to the influence of Shankara, which was "due to institutional factors".[41] The mathas which he built exist until today, and preserve the teachings and influence of Shankara, "while the writings of other scholars before him came to be forgotten with the passage of time".[42] The table below gives an overview of the four Amnaya Mathas founded by Adi Shankara, and their details.[web 2] Shishya (lineage) Direction Maṭha Mahāvākya Veda Sampradaya Padmapāda East Govardhana Pīṭhaṃ Prajñānam brahma (Consciousness is Brahman) Rig Veda Bhogavala Sureśvara South Sringeri Śārada Pīṭhaṃ Aham brahmāsmi (I am Brahman) Yajur Veda Bhūrivala Hastāmalakācārya West Dvāraka Pīṭhaṃ Tattvamasi (That thou art) Sama Veda Kitavala Toṭakācārya North Jyotirmaṭha Pīṭhaṃ Ayamātmā brahma (This Atman is Brahman) Atharva Veda Nandavala According to the tradition in Kerala, after Sankara's samadhi at Vadakkunnathan Temple, his disciples founded four mathas in Thrissur city, namely Edayil Madhom, Naduvil Madhom, Thekke Madhom and Vadakke Madhom. Philosophy and religious thought Advaita ("non-dualism") is often called a monistic system of thought. The word "Advaita" essentially refers to the identity of the Self (Atman) and the Whole (Brahman[43]). Advaita Vedanta says the one unchanging entity (Brahman) alone exists, and that changing entities do not have absolute existence, much as the ocean's waves have no existence in separation from the ocean. The key source texts for all schools of Vedānta are the Prasthanatrayi–the canonical texts consisting of the Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita and the Brahma Sutras. Adi Shankara was the first in the tradition to consolidate the siddhānta ("doctrine") of Advaita Vedanta. He wrote commentaries on the Prasthana Trayi. A famous quote from Vivekacūḍāmaṇi, one of his prakarana granthas that succinctly summarises his philosophy is: Brahma satyaṃ jagat mithyā, jīvo brahmaiva nāparah Brahman is the only truth, the spatio-temporal world is an illusion, and there is ultimately no difference between Brahman and Atman(individual self). Advaita Vedanta is based on śāstra ("scriptures"), yukti ("reason") and anubhava ("experience"), and aided by karmas ("spiritual practices").[44] This philosophy provides a clear-cut way of life to be followed. Starting from childhood, when learning has to start, the philosophy has to be realised in practice throughout one's life, even up to death. This is the reason why this philosophy is called an experiential philosophy-the underlying tenet being "That thou art", meaning that ultimately there is no difference between the experiencer and the experienced (the world) as well as the universal spirit (Brahman). Among the followers of Advaita, as well those of other doctrines, there are believed to have appeared Jivanmuktas, ones liberated while alive. These individuals (commonly called Mahatmas, great souls, among Hindus) are those who realised the oneness of their self and the universal spirit called Brahman. Adi Shankara's Bhashyas (commentaries) on the Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita and the Brahma Sutras are his principal works. Although he mostly adhered to traditional means of commenting on the Brahma Sutra, there are a number of original ideas and arguments to establish that the essence of Upanishads is Advaita. He taught that it was only through direct knowledge that one could realise Brahman. "A perception of the fact that the object seen is a rope will remove the fear and sorrow which result from the illusory idea that it is a serpent". Cited from Shankara's "Vivekachuudaamani"/ verse #12/translated by Mohini M Chatterji. This metaphor was borrowed from Yogacara Buddhist thinkers, who used it in a different context.[45] Adi Shankara's opponents accused him of teaching Buddhism in the garb of Hinduism, because his non-dualistic ideals seemed rather radical to contemporary Hindu philosophy, and so he earned the title "pracchannabauddha". He further praised the Buddha as the "emperor of yogis in the Kali Age."[46] However, although Advaita proposes the theory of Maya, likening the universe to "a trick of a magician", Adi Shankara and his followers see this as a consequence of their basic premise that Brahman alone is real. Their theory of Maya emerges from their belief in experiential reality of the absolute consciousness 'Brahman' (as emphasized in Upanishads), as opposed to Buddhist doctrine of emptiness, which emerges from the Buddhist approach of observing the nature of reality.

Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. (March 2009) See also: History of Hinduism Because of his unification of two seemingly disparate philosophical doctrines, Atman and Brahman, Westerners who know about him perceive him as the "St. Thomas Aquinas of Indian thought"[47] and "the most brilliant personality in the history of Indian thought."[48] At the time of Adi Shankara's life, Hinduism was increasing in influence in India at the expense of Buddhism and Jainism.[49] Hinduism was divided into innumerable sects, each quarrelling with the others. The followers of Mīmāṃsā and Sankhya philosophy were atheists, insomuch that they did not believe in God as a unified being. Besides these atheists there were numerous theistic sects. There were also those who rejected the Vedas, like the Charvakas.[citation needed] Adi Shankara held discourses and debates with the leading scholars of all these sects and schools of philosophy to controvert their doctrines. He unified the theistic sects into a common framework of Shanmata system. In his works, Adi Shankara stressed the importance of the Vedas, and his efforts helped Hinduism regain strength and popularity. Many trace the present worldwide prominence of Vedanta to his works. He travelled on foot to various parts of India to restore the study of the Vedas. Even though he lived for only thirty-two years his impact on India and on Hinduism was striking. He reintroduced a purer form of Vedic thought. His teachings and tradition form the basis of Smartism and have influenced Sant Mat lineages.[50] He is the main figure in the tradition of Advaita Vedanta. He was the founder of the Daśanāmi Sampradāya of Hindu monasticism and Ṣaṇmata of Smarta tradition. He introduced the Pañcāyatana form of worship. Adi Shankara, along with Madhva and Ramanuja, was instrumental in the revival of Hinduism. These three teachers formed the doctrines that are followed by their respective sects even today. They have been the most important figures in the recent history of Hindu philosophy. In their writings and debates, they provided polemics against the non-Vedantic schools of Sankhya, Vaisheshika etc. Thus they paved the way for Vedanta to be the dominant and most widely followed tradition among the schools of Hindu philosophy. The Vedanta school stresses most on the Upanishads (which are themselves called Vedanta, End or culmination of the Vedas), unlike the other schools that gave importance to the ritualistic Brahmanas, or to texts authored by their founders. The Vedanta schools hold that the Vedas (which include the Upanishads) are unauthored, forming a continuous tradition of wisdom transmitted orally. Thus the concept of apaurusheyatva ("being unauthored") came to be the guiding force behind the Vedanta schools. However, along with stressing the importance of Vedic tradition, Adi Shankara gave equal importance to the personal experience of the student. Logic, grammar, Mīmāṃsā and allied subjects form main areas of study in all the Vedanta schools. Regarding meditation, Shankara refuted the system of Yoga and its disciplines as a direct means to attain moksha, rebutting the argument that it can be obtained through concentration of the mind. His position is that the mental states discovered through the practices of Yoga can be indirect aids to the gain of knowledge, but cannot themselves give rise to it. According to his philosophy, knowledge of Brahman springs from inquiry into the words of the Upanishads, and the knowledge of Brahman that shruti provides cannot be obtained in any other way.[51] It has to be noted that it is generally considered that for Shankara the Absolute Reality is attributeless and impersonal, while for Madhava and Ramanuja, the Absolute Truth is Vishnu. This has been a subject of debate, interpretation, and controversy since Shankara himself is attributed to composing the popular 8th-century Hindu devotional composition Bhaja Govindam (literal meaning, "Worship Govinda"). This work of Adi Shankara is considered as a good summary of Advaita Vedanta and underscores the view that devotion to God, Govinda, is not only an important part of general spirituality, but the concluding verse drives through the message of Shankara: "Worship Govinda, worship Govinda, worship Govinda, Oh fool! Other than chanting the Lord's names, there is no other way to cross the life's ocean". Bhaja Govindam invokes the almighty in the aspect of Vishnu; it is therefore very popular not only with Sri Adi Shankaracharya's immediate followers, the Smarthas, but also with Vaishnavas and others. A well known verse, recited in the Smarta tradition, in praise of Adi Shankara is: श्रुतिस्मृतिपुराणानामालयं करुणालयम्| नमामि भगवत्पादशंकरं लोकशङ्करम् || Śruti smṛti purāṇānāṃālayaṃ karuṇālayaṃ| Namāmi Bhagavatpādaśaṅkaraṃ lokaśaṅkaraṃ|| I salute the compassionate abode of the Vedas, Smritis and Puranas known as Shankara Bhagavatpada, who makes the world auspicious. Adi Shankara begins his Gurustotram or Verses to the Guru with the following Sanskrit Sloka, that has become a widely sung Bhajan: Guru Brahma, Guru Vishnu, Guru Deva Maheshwara. Guru Sakshath Parambrahma, Tasmai Shri Gurave Namaha. “Guru is the creator Brahma, Guru is the preserver Vishnu, Guru is the destroyer Shiva. Guru is directly the supreme spirit — I offer my salutations to this Guru.” The great Indian Muslim Philosopher Muhammad Iqbal considered him to be one of the greatest thinkers of medieval India and acknowledged influence by him.[52] Works For more details on this topic, see Adi Shankara bibliography. Adi Shankara's works deal with logically establishing the doctrine of Advaita Vedanta as he saw it in the Upanishads. He formulates the doctrine of Advaita Vedanta by validating his arguments on the basis of quotations from the Vedas and other Hindu scriptures. He gives a high priority to svānubhava ("personal experience") of the student. His works are largely polemical in nature. He directs his polemics mostly against the Sankhya, Buddha, Jaina, Vaisheshika and other non-vedantic Hindu philosophies. Traditionally, his works are classified under Bhāṣya ("commentary"), Prakaraṇa grantha ("philosophical treatise") and Stotra ("devotional hymn"). The commentaries serve to provide a consistent interpretation of the scriptural texts from the perspective of Advaita Vedanta. The philosophical treatises provide various methodologies to the student to understand the doctrine. The devotional hymns are rich in poetry and piety, serving to highlight the relationship between the devotee and the deity. Adi Shankara wrote Bhashyas on the ten major Upanishads, the Brahma Sutras and the Bhagavad Gita. In his works, he quotes from Shveshvatara, Kaushitakai, Mahanarayana and Jabala Upanishads, among others. Bhashyas on Kaushitaki, Nrisimhatapani and Shveshvatara Upanishads are extant but the authenticity is doubtful.[53] Adi Shankara's is the earliest extant commentary on the Brahma Sutras. However, he mentions older commentaries like those of Dravida, Bhartrprapancha and others.[54] In his Brahma Sutra Bhashya, Adi Shankara cites the examples of Dharmavyadha, Vidura and others, who were born with the knowledge of Brahman acquired in previous births. He mentions that the effects cannot be prevented from working on account of their present birth. He states that the knowledge that arises out of the study of the Vedas could be had through the Puranas and the Itihasas. In the Taittiriya Upanishad Bhashya 2.2, he says: Sarveśāṃ cādhikāro vidyāyāṃ ca śreyaḥ kevalayā vidyāyā veti siddhaṃ – It has been established that everyone has the right to the knowledge (of Brahman) and that the supreme goal is attained by that knowledge alone.[55] Adi Shankara, in order to bring unity among various Hindu sects of those times, wrote five pancharathnam stotras for each of the following prime deities. The deities were Shiva, Vishnu, Shakti, Ganesh and Surya. The idea was that if you believed in Lord Shiva, you would chant Shiva pancharathnam stotra by placing Shiva's idol in the center other four Hindu deities surrounding Him, two on each side. Similarly if you believed in Vishnu, you would place Vishnu in the center. Those five stotras are Ganesha pancharathnam and Lalitha pancharathnam. Some western academics consider only the Upadeśasāhasrī as an authentic work of Shankara among the independent philosophical works. There is a difference of opinion among scholars on the authorship of Viveka Chudamani,[56][57] though it is "so closely interwoven into the spiritual heritage of Shankara that any analysis of his perspective which fails to consider [this work] would be incomplete".[56] Adi Shankara also wrote commentaries on other scriptural works, such as the Vishnu sahasranāma and the Sānatsujātiya.[58] Like the Bhagavad Gita, both of these are contained in the Mahabhārata. Film In 1983 a film directed by G. V. Iyer named Adi Shankaracharya was premiered, the first film ever made entirely in Sanskrit language in which all of Adi Shankaracharya's works were compiled.[59] The movie received the Indian National Film Awards for Best Film, Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography and Best Audiography.[60][61] In 2013, a film Sri Jagadguru Aadi Sankara directed by J. K. Bharavi in Telugu Language was completed and released.
