      Afrabia: Is it a mere intellectual fascination or can it be realised?

      Writes: Prof. Ali Mazrui

      There are different levels of Pan-Africanism, varying in degrees of sustainability. Sub-Saharan Pan-Africanism is a quest for the unification of Black people in Africa below the Sahara. Then there are two possible versions of Continental Pan-Africanism.

      The Sub-Continental version would seek the union of Black States while excluding Arab Africa. This idea has been floated from time to time, but it does not seem to have much political support. More triumphant has been Trans-Saharan Pan-Africanism which formed the Afro-Arab basis of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU,) and its successor, the African Union (AU).

      The Arabs have been killing "Black Africans" wholesale for centuries. The worstening conflicts right now in Sudan causing millions to flee into Chad are even more/ present day examples why we can never except the so-called arab cultures into our African consciousness.

      I wish you would have posted the entire article. It is very good. Although I wouldn't refer to African/Arab relations as "Afrabian" or "Afrabian thought".

      Afrabia: Is it a mere intellectual fascination or can it be realised?
      By: Staff Writer

      There are different levels of Pan-Africanism, varying in degrees of sustainability. Sub-Saharan Pan-Africanism is a quest for the unification of Black people in Africa below the Sahara. Then there are two possible versions of Continental Pan-Africanism.

      The Sub-Continental version would seek the union of Black States while excluding Arab Africa. This idea has been floated from time to time, but it does not seem to have much political support. More triumphant has been Trans-Saharan Pan-Africanism which formed the Afro-Arab basis of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU,) and its successor, the African Union (AU).

      Another version of sub-Saharan Pan-Africanism is sub-regional rather than sub-continental. The sub-regional variety has produced organisations like the Economic Community of West African States (Ecowas) which in recent years has been more activist as a peacekeeping force than as a vanguard for economic change.

      The Southern African Development Community (SADC) has also received a new lease on life since South Africa became a full member in the post-apartheid era. In December 1999 Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania finally succeeded in reviving the East African Community since its collapse 22 years earlier.

      But by far the most ambitious idea floating around in the new era of intellectual speculation is whether the whole of Africa and the whole of the Arab world are two regions in the process of merging into one. Out of this speculative discourse has emerged the concept of Afrabia.

      Two tendencies have stimulated the new thinking about African-Arab relations. One tendency is basically negative but potentially unifying: The war on terrorism. The new international terrorism may have its roots in injustices perpetrated against such Arab people as Palestinians and Iraqis, but the primary theatre of contestation is blurring the distinction between the Middle East and the African continent.

      In order to kill twelve Americans in Nairobi in August 1998, over 200 Kenyans died in a terrorist act at the United States Embassy in Nairobi. Four years later, a suicide bomber in Mombasa, attacked the Israeli-owned and Israeli-patronised Paradise Hotel. There too, three times as many Kenyans as Israelis died.

      Independently of the war on terror, Islam as a cultural and political force has also been deepening relationships between Africa and the Middle East. Intellectual revival is not only in the Western idiom. It is also in the idiom of African cultures and African Islam. Hot political debates about the Shariah (Islamic Law) in Nigeria constitute part of the trend of cultural integration between Africa and the Middle East.

      The new legitimation of Muammar Gaddafi as a viable African leader has contributed to the birth of no less a new institution than the AU. It is sometimes startling how much more Pan-Africanist than Pan-Arabist Gaddafi has become in recent years. At least for the time being, Gaddafi is out-Africanising the legacy of Egypt’s Gamal Abdel Nasser.

      The fourth force that may be merging Africa with the Middle East is political economy.

      Africa’s oil producers need a joint partnership with the bigger oil producers of the Middle East.

      In the area of aid and trade between Africa and the Middle East, the volumes may have gone down since the 1980s. But most indications seem to promise a future expansion of economic relations between Africa and the Middle East. In the Gulf countries of the United Arab Emirates and the Sultanate of Oman the concept of Afrabia has begun to be examined on higher and higher echelons.

      It was initially Trans-Saharan Pan-Africanism which gave birth to the idea of Afrabia. The first post-colonial waves of Pan-Africanists like Kwame Nkrumah, Gamal Abdel Nasser and Sekou Toure believed that the Sahara was a bridge rather than a divide.

      The concept of Afrabia now connotes more than interaction between Africanity and Arab identity; it is seen as a process of fusion between the two. While the principle of Afrabia recognises that Africa and the Arab world are overlapping categories, it goes on to prophesy that these two are in the historic process of becoming one.

      But who are the Afrabians? There are in reality at least four categories. Cultural Afrabians are those whose culture and way of life have been deeply Arabised but have fallen short of their being linguistically Arabs. Most Somali, Hausa, and some Waswahili are cultural Afrabians in that sense. Their mother-tongue is not Arabic, but much of the rest of their culture bears the stamp of Arab and Islamic impact.

      Ideological Afrabians are those who intellectually believe in solidarity between Arabs and Africans, or at least between Arab Africa and black Africa. Historically, such ideological Afrabian leaders have included Kwame Nkrumah, the founder president of Ghana; Gamal Abdel Nasser, arguably the greatest Egyptian of the 20th Century; and Sekou Toure, the founding father of post-colonial Guinea (Conakry.) Such leaders refused to recognise the Sahara Desert as a divide, and insisted on visualising it as a historic bridge.

      Geographical Afrabians are those Arabs and Berbers whose countries are concurrently members of both the African Union and the Arab League. Some of the countries are overwhelmingly Arab, such as Egypt and Tunisia, while others are only marginally Arab, such as Mauritania, Somalia and the Comoro Islands.

      As for genealogical Afrabians, these are those who are biologically descended from both Arabs and Black Africans. In North Africa these include Anwar Sadat, the former President of Egypt who concluded a peace treaty with Israel and was assassinated for it in 1982. Anwar Sadat’s mother was Black. He was politically criticised for many things, but almost never for being racially mixed.

      Genealogical Afrabians in sub-Saharan Africa include Salim Ahmed Salim, the longest serving Secretary-General of the OAU, and the Mazrui clan scattered across Coastal Kenya and Tanzania. It should be noted that Northern Sudanese qualify as Afrabians by both geographical and genealogical criteria. These four sub-categories of Afrabians provide some of the evidence that Africa and the Arab world are two geographical regions that are in the slow historic process of merging.

      The Arab League held one if its meetings in Sudan last month, the US wants to send NATO troops to Sudan and now they claim a dead-man is trying to send Islamists there as a pretext for "western" intervention in the name of fighting terrorim.

      Arabs have no good intentions where Afrikans and especially Sudanese people are concerned. Their goal is no different than domination and oppression in the name of Islam.

      They insist that Sudan is an "Arab" country as they press on with their aganda of genocidal coveting of Sudan's resources and land.

      There is an inverse relationship between Sudanese oppression and Egyptian prosperity.

      Fundamentally, Arabs and Europeans/Jews think ALIKE in respects to cultural elitism and territiorial aggression. They WANT verything they see Afrikans with, and see no reason why they shouldn't have it, even by force it necessary.

      Not to mention they think everybody should "be like them" 'cause Islam is "the best" religion and they have some romaticized notion that Arab culture is superior.

      My dude Patrick from the Congo asserts that there is no such thing as an Arab, either you are Afrikan or Afrikan mixed with euro or whatever.

      This is how a-rab double standards and trickery works.

      When these filthy indo-european a-rabs want something from people of Bilad Al-Sudan, "Land of the Blacks", they are suddenly a-rab people. However when these same people from Land of the Blacks travel to a-rab countries such as Saudi Arabia, Jordan etc, they are tormented and called "abid" which means Black slave.

      To all Afrikan people who practice Islam: a-rabs are not your allies. Never have been. Never will be.

      "Most African peoples have Humanitarian Disease. They are overly helpful and trusting of outsiders and foreigners - especially white people. It becomes 'diseased' when Africans provide more cooperation, and demonstrate more unity with other races than to other African people. This learned African psychological and cultural personality characteristic led to our enslavement [and] accounts for the betrayals of our African liberation warriors today."

      At what point do we get the concept that the Aryan is a damn Aryan regardless of what the punks call themselves! Mazrui should be held in suspect anyway how is he to speak of some Arab unity with Afrikans as these jackasses kill my children daily as these half-wits and their insane murder cult called Islam rape my women? I am outraged at his audacity. Aryan arrogance rides again! I refute, refuse and revolt against this madness. Sudanese children and women are being killed as we speak, if we accept this we have condemned them and we should be slain as well. My ancestors are screaming through my soul now! Beware, Beware the Aryan comes as an Arab messiah and friend. Forgive this cryptic speech but I am enraged at this ludicrous perception that there are two Afrikas one below the Sahara and one above. There further more is no such animal as a "black Africa" this is preposterous and absurd at best. Afrika has belonged to Afrikans and as long as there is breath in my little brown body it shall remain so!

      I'm a little late in comin', but I just joined. Anyway for what relates to the topic: currently I am not for or against Afrabia. But I do know this, unlike African, which can be used to describe a people, a culture, a language, and a race, Arab relates only to an ethnic group (not a race as is so often misinterpreted). I am young, but old enough to know that the white media - usually controlled by the Zionist, fabricates and/or will distort truthes. The African race has been present on almost every continent, safe for Antarctica and the Arctic (and even we've been there). We've been found in Australia and the Island of Tazmania (our lands savagely taken away from us from the white oppressor), in South Asia, more specifically the Philipines (long live the Afro-Filipino). We've also been found in many of the various Arabian Peninsula nations (presently composed of seven), something the Jew doesn't want you finding out, but take a trip to Saudi Arabia, or Yemen, or Oman, and you will see different. You will see many who have kept traces of our lineages, much like the Brazilian (not to mention that over 40% of those inhabiting the Arabian Peninsula have sub-Saharan African admixture present in them), or those who have not at all lost any. This is even more the case in Africa, even the "light skinned" kings of Morocco cannot deny where the texture of their hair which is often times rough and interwoven or the broad shape of their noses comes from. They have sub-Saharan blood in them (mixed with Nordic blood unfortunately, but should we turn our backs on our brothers because they are tainted, I say nay). Besides many of them aren't any lighter skinned than Selassie, hell, many of them look like Moussaoui (he was Moroccan by the way, which makes him an Arab). They are like the Puerto Rican, so mixed that he cannot identify himself under one race.

      The Sudanese Arab, can deny his racial lineage even less, as he still retains either much of the color, or many of the traits that categorize him as black. So why is the Sudanese Arab killing off his own kind? For the same reason many young brothers today kill their own kind, They've learned to self-hate. They hate what they are, all Arabs, not just the North African, but the Peninsula one as well. They know where they come from, just like the African-American, and Caribbean-American. So ready are they to give up on a sista', to be with one of those devils. And it is this self-hatred that has taught the black (regardless of skin tone, light or dark) to kill himself.

      Of course now the Arab comes in every race, but that was not always the case, the Yemenites are believed to resemble the image of the "true Arab". And let me tell you, the Yemenite looks far from Caucasian, much less white. They are not a race apart, and if they were living here in America, they'd be asking themselves just as many questions as perhaps we do. They can deny their African ancestry, but they cannot hide it. Actually this Afro-Arab alliance gives us a chance to merge back the lands and reunite our lost brothers with a sense of their roots. But perhaps this is only wishful thinking, as the damage done by the white devil has clearly made a lasting impact on the lands where it has planted it's seed. This ethnic cleansing that is happening in Sudan, is clearly an example. We should be trying to ensue peace among our brothers rather than fighting them, and focusing on a more urgent war which is almost upon us, the one that will be fought against the white menace.

      Remember, Arab is not a race. But African is.

      Anyway, while you're thinkin' about it, check these links out:

      Modern Egyptians - Glad to see that we're still the majority (by over 80%)
      Bandar bin Sultan - This guy's royalty in Saudi Arabia
      Bandar - Same guy different pic
      Prince Saad of Kuwait - Yup you guessed it, Royalty again
      Majed Abdullah - Greatest Arabian soccer player? The "Desert Pele", here's a site on him: http://majed9.net/theman.htm#fans
      Anwar Sadat - Recognized as the greatest Arab president to have ever lived, here's a pic of him when he was younger: Younger Sadat
      Two Yemenite girls - need I say more?
      Young Yemenite brother
      Young Yemenite sister
      Yemenite brothers
      Yemenite brother
      Yemenite family

      I could go on, but I've pretty much made a statement. Please don't add your voice to the already existing hatred. We need to help the Arab brother who has forgotten himself and forgotten who he comes from. Pray for him. Help him.

      These are very worthy sentiments Snoopy_2tone. I'm sure you're not suggesting that self-defence against Arab aggression is an act of hatred. To deny ourselves the right to self-defence would be a fatal act of self-hatred.

      What I see is an Arab/African crisis, an ideological/cultural war. Race is an issue of course, but perhaps more importantly is the clash of cultures with lots of Arab intolerance and expansionists ambitions.


      "The history of humanity will remain confused as long as we fail to distinguish between the two early cradles in which nature fashioned the instincts, temperament, habits, and ethical concepts of the two subdivisions before they met each other after a long separation dating back to prehistoric times. The first of those cradles, as we shall see, is the valley of the Nile, from the Great lakes to the Delta, across the so-called 'Anglo-Egyptian' Sudan. The abundance of vital resources, its sedentary, agricultural character, the specific conditions of the valley, will engender in man, that is, in the Negro, a gentle, idealistic, peaceful nature, endowed with a spirit of justice and gaiety. All these virtues were more or less indispensable for daily coexistence.
      Because of the requirements of agricultural life, concepts such as matriarchy and totemism, the most perfect social organization, and monotheistic religion were born.
      ...
      One could go on to explain all the basic traits of the Negro soul and civilization by using the material conditions of the Nile Valley as the point of departure.

      By contrast, the ferocity of nature in the Eurasian steppes, the barrenness of those regions, the overall circumstances of material conditions, were to create instincts necessary for survival in such an environment. Here, Nature left no illusion of kindliness: it was implacable and permitted no negligence; man must obtain his bread by the sweat of his brow. Above all, in the course of a long, painful existence, he must learn to rely on himself alone, on his own possibilities. He could not indulge in the luxury of believing in a beneficent God who would shower down abundant means of gaining a livelihood; instead, he would conjure up deities maleficent and cruel, jealous and spiteful: Zeus, Yahweh, among others.

      In the unrewarding activity that the physical environment imposed on man, there was already implied materialism, anthropomorphism (which is but one of its aspects), and the secular spirit. This is how the environment gradually molded these instincts in the men of that region, the Indo-Europeans in particular. All the peoples of the area, whether white or yellow, were instinctively to love conquest, because of a desire to escape from those hostile surroundings. The milieu chased them away; they had to leave it or succumb, try to conquer a place in the sun in a more clement nature. Invasions would not cease, once an initial contact with the Black world to the south had taught them the existence of a land where the living was easy, riches abundant, technique flourishing. Thus, from 1450 B.C. until Hitler, from the Barbarians of the fourth and fifth centuries to Genghis Khan and the Turks, those invasions from east to west or from north to south continued uninterrupted.

      Man in those regions long remained a nomad. He was cruel.

      ...

      Obviously, man was the pillar of that kind of life. Woman's economic role was much less significant than in Black agricultural societies. Consequently, the nomadic patrichial family was the only embryo of social organization. The patrichial principle would rule the whole life of the Indo-Europeans, from the Greeks and Romans to the Napoleonic Code, to our day. This was why woman's participation in public life would arrive later in European than in Negro societies. If the opposite seems true today in certain parts of Black Africa, it can be attributed to Islamic influence."

      African Oil Interests must Unite with Arab Oil interests

      The fourth force that may be merging Africa with the Middle East is political economy.

      Africa’s oil producers need a joint partnership with the bigger oil producers of the Middle East.

      The above statement is taken from the post by Mackeyite, above.

      Of all the exigencies bringing Continental Unity, including the unity of the Arabian Peninsula with the rest of Africa, political economy is probably the strongest. In fact, I think this is the whole key to solving the problem of under-development that characterizes both the Arabic speacking areas and the non-Arabic speaking areas (this is a very awkward statement because Arabic is spoken to some degree in EVERY area of Africa). When the entire Arabian Peninsula is united with the rest of Africa, we will have under our political control the vast majority of the world's petroleum reserves. We will be able to establish a single point of sale and distribution. But, more importantly; we will be able to access an export tax to the effect that it will constitute an amount equal to that that is owed to us as a result of centuries of unpaid slave labor. Let's not beat around the bush: the time has come when we must stop begging these pigs for reparations. All we need to do is get our act together and unite among ourselves. When we do this, we can tax back some reparations.

      Not only can we satify our needs for reparations, we can use the revenue gained by imposing an export tax on petroleum to finance the variouis development projects that are needed in Africa and Arabia. Do not be afraid of paying $5-6-7-8-9 a gallon for gas. This problem can be solved simply by making tax rebates to citizens of Africa and Arabia. Or, it can be off-set by various development programs that can be set up for Africans and Arabs. For instance, there may be a program that makes venture capital available to any Arab or African entreprenuer who needs to sart a new business in the USA, the Carribean Arabia or Africa. In this way, we will help the whole world economy. In fact, solving our problem of under-development would ultimately help the whole world. For one thing, the welfare roles would decrease in the USA as more and more Africans and Arabs become financially competent and leave the welfare roles. (Reagan and Bush can probably see the wisdom of this statement. Even Bush!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

      Not just oil. We ought to impose an export tax on ALL resources taken from our lands. WE MUST UNITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      "African Oil Interests must Unite with Arab Oil interests."

      Negative!

      Afrikan oil "interest" is not synonymous with arab oil interest. Afrikan oil interest is an entirely different economic and political dogma.

      Arab oil interest in Afrika is no different than Western or Chinese oil interest in Afrika...theft!
