Many around the world have been swayed by the Christian teaching that the Jews, or Israelites, are the “chosen people” of God and because of this, some hold the Jewish people – those of European descent – in a higher regard than other groups of people. But what if the world has been deceived by a diversionary tactic and teaching which was intended to keep the world’s population blinded as to who the true chosen people are?
Obadiyah Ysrayl (OY), a regent of the Israelite Heritage organization, and a long-time Hebrew Israelite, recently traveled from Chicago, Illinois to speak in Denver, Colorado about the hidden history and how Blacks in America are the people who fulfill many Biblical prophecies which have long been applied to European Jewish history. He was interviewed by The Black House News’ (BHN) Adeeba Folami prior to his June lecture at a local cultural center.
(BHN) – What are some of the things you’re going to speak about in your message today?
(OY) - What I deal with is the hidden history between the Bible and African American history. There is a connection between the ancient Biblical Israelites and the so-called Black people of the Americas, in fact, this relationship was always known by our slave masters – this is one of the reasons they put us through what’s called the seasoning process, to remove knowledge of self. They removed our language, history – everything – and so we’re gonna show from the Bible, from history and archeology, that not only African Americans, but Jamaicans, Haitians, all of us that were brought into the Western Hemisphere with the Trans-Atlantic slave trade, we are Israelites.
I’m going to show first the physical appearance and then we’ll show the curses and punishments that the Most High put upon His children, the children of Israel, in fact, it’s our entire history in the Western Hemisphere from slavery. The Bible speaks about we’re gonna be brought into slavery in ships and be sold to our enemies as male and female slaves. It talks about us having a prison population and said, ‘you’re gonna be hid in prison houses.’ It talks about we’re gonna be a disease stricken people, which we are; we lead in 8 of the top 10 cancers; sickle cell anemia and so many of these diseases on us, they’re starting to call them Black diseases; so we’re gonna go through that and show why all these things have happened.
We’re not only gonna say this and that is happening to us but [we will give] the cause and the reason. It’s because we left the Most High. He chose us to be his priests, his teachers to the world and we turned our back and said we don’t want to teach the world but we want to be like the world. We were integrating long ago. We tried integration. Integration didn’t work in the 60s and it didn’t work 2000 – 3000 years ago because the Most High said, ‘I called you to be a separate people, to be different from these people because you got to be an example to them.’ That’s what our lecture will deal with today.
(BHN) – You spoke of separation and the Nation of Islam also advocates separation. How are you and the NOI on the same page on that subject?
(OY) - I’m familiar with the Nation of Islam teachings, in fact, before I came into this, I was searching and I came across some of the teachings. Yes, separation is Biblical for our people because the Most High is a separatist Himself. He said, ‘I called you,’ and I’m gonna show the scriptures, Ex. 19:5-6, He said, ‘I called you to be a people unto Me. I don’t want you to be like that.’ Right now, integration has killed our people and we never thought about this; we’re fighting for the right to integrate with a wicked people. That means if they’re wicked and we’re gonna integrate with them, we’re gonna be wicked [also.]
The NOI has that right: total separation, we’re talking about a total, total, total separation. I mean, eventually we’re gonna have to separate from this land because this land will be destroyed by the Most High. So we’re similar on that understanding that separation, really, for the survival of our people, separation has to happen. We got to give these people back everything – their names, their ways, their customs. It was never meant for us and it’s killing us.
(BHN) – Thank you.
