This thread will show archaeological research, oral history by gentile writers and hebrew writers, linguistics, and material culture of the HEBREW people in AFRICA this will go out to disaster looms, Glimmer, Africa AE, Jeff.<quoted text>
now looms said this "if you're trying to say that those tribes in levant (from the sinai to turkey), fled into WA and became the majority of those on the slave ships you'd be very wrong, and laughed at by anyone who knew what he'she was talk'n bout"
Ok! Looms glimmer have you read the books called The Tarikh al-Sudan (also Tarikh es-Sudan - the "History of the Sudan")
and Tarikh al-fattash these West African chronicles written in Arabic in the second half of the 16th century. It provides an account of the Songhay Empire from the founder of their empire to the reign of Sonni Ali (ruled 1464-1492) up to 1599 with a few references to events in the following century. The chronicle also mentions the earlier Mali Empire.
now looms and glimmer you say that there is no Written historical proff that hebrews migrated into WA well you are Wrong!
According to the Tarikh es-Sudan it gives clear account of a community and their leader named Za-al Ayaman which means ("HE COMES FROM YEMEN") he was the founder of Songhai dynasty. It is recorded in the record that he migrated from Yemen about 300 A.d.
now Yemen and Mecca has been a area for hebrews for centuries
Ketuba (Jewish marriage contract) Yemen in 1795. The name of Katibu (scribes) of Antemoro Anakara come from Hebrew ketubah ("document", "writing"
So as you all can see Yemen is where hebrew communities thrived.
So according to WRITTEN HISTORICAL Proof Hebrew communities migrated into WA and Became the SONGHAY/GHANA EMPIRE.
now to further prove that the songhay are true hebrews this is an account by Leo Africanus he traveled into Ghana and North africa he meet with the leaders of Mali or the Sundiata Keita (c. 1217 c. 1255 was the founder of the Mali Empire and celebrated as a hero of the Mandinka people of West Africa in the semi-historical Epic of Sundiata. They conqured Songhay in the 12th century
I will quote the mandingo Sundiata Keita he told Africanus the following
"The king(Sundiata Keita ) is a declared enemy of the Jews. He will not allow any to live in the city. If he hears it said that a Berber merchant frequents them or does business with them, he confiscates his goods.
So in fact more prof of a Hebrew kingdom that exsisted in WA LOOMS
So the last hebrew king to sit on the throne was Sonni ali he died and the Native african named Muhammad Askiya ruled over us in 1492.
Muhammad Askiya appointed his brother OMAR this is a written recorded conversation between the two
After the year 1502 the army of Askia invaded the state of Mali. The Songhays sustained such a large number of
fatalities that Omar remarked, "The Songhay will be ex- terminated." The reply of Askia was: "On the contrary. The
conquered nations will make our lives easier, for they will be part of us and will assist us in our enterprises."
Looms the people you are researching and saying they are NOT hebrews sold us into slavery. The following tribes are NOT related to Songhay.
1) Mandingos, Fulani, Husa
known Hebrew tribes in Africa WA
1) The Kanuri Hebrews according to their history , Sef, son of Dhu Ifazan of Yemen, arrived in Kanem in the ninth century and united the population into the Sayfawa dynasty

8) Dawsahak or Iddao Ishaak ("children of Isaac") 0f mali
3) The Iberogen (or Igdalen) Hebrews from songhai population 43,000
