"black shriner"

Reader comment on item: How Elijah Muhammad Won

Submitted by Latif bey (United States), May 6, 2010 at 11:37

" Founded in 1913 by a Black Shriner named Timothy Drew (who renamed himself Noble Drew Ali), the MSTA introduced such Islam-like features as the crescent-and-star motif, the use of Arabic personal names, and the prohibition of pork, but it also foretold the destruction of all whites and promoted Drew as a prophet."

That's connotative information. Moors have been wearing the fez long before 1870 which is the year the"shriners" were established. Noble Drew Ali was not a mason, shriner or anything like that. It sounds like you're trying to imply he's 'divine and national movement' (which he was killed for) was influenced by these so called secret societies when in fact those very same societies, at their core are all about moorish science. (Hiram abiff, solomon, ruth the moabitess. Their big secret) The Islam he brought 'BACK' to the people predates both Prop. EM and Mohammad(bput) It's 'old time' spiritual path. He gave us back our history, taught about the importance of declaring our nationality which brought us back to the human family of nations. See the reason we're not negro,black or colored etc is because those are chattel brands. Claiming yourself as any of those is like saying I'm dead or not in my right mind, I don't respect my Ancestors, I am still a slave and I don't want, deserve, or believe in "divine law"( constitutional, international or otherwise)That is why, that is why, That is why he was so important to Moorish americans, 'EM' and the nation, NGE etc.
"Study,study,Study and when you have studied all and would ask what to study next I would say study yourself!"- Noble Drew Ali
