Reporting to you live from the Bey Area, Califia territory, North America, it’s Rami Salaam El. Though the Moorish Oakland Star’s focus is information relating to Moors, we are a newspaper. With the “What’s going On” series, we aim to bring you news and information about various different subjects, from all over the world.

That being said, here are some news articles and videos to keep you updated with what’s going on around the world:

​Norwegian doctor banned from Gaza: ‘I document what I see & that makes me trouble for Israeli govt’

RT: What’s the humanitarian situation in Gaza right now?

MG: Well, you can ask the Palestinian people about that in Gaza. You know they (Israel} were dropping leaflets saying “leave your home.” They were calling even mobile phones, telling them to leave their homes. Where should they go? Gaza is completely besieged, it is like a cage, so where should they flee? Where should they go? And in addition to that, who gave the state of Israel the right to chase ordinary civilians out of their houses, to bomb [them]? It is absolutely, I think, untrue that they were shielding the civilian population. Gaza is under siege, it was under siege. There is no way you can get in and out. I am not the problem. My, you know, the denial of my entry is a small problem. The bigger issue is that the state of Israel is denying the civilian population in Gaza medical support from the international community. When they start to pick on people who criticize them and then, you know, deny them access to Gaza. Who’s next? A critical journalist? I think the problem for Israel [is] they do not want the truth to get out.

Revisiting the Connection Between Prophet Muhammad and George Washington

Muhammad’s ultimate lesson in forgiveness came at the moment when a Bedouin urinated in his mosque, at which point several Muslims rushed over to beat the man. The Prophet, upon seeing this, ordered the Muslims to leave the Bedouin alone. Muhammad explained to the man calmly, “This is a place of worship, in it is the worship of God and the reading of Qur’an.” After the Bedouin had left, the Prophet said to his companions, “You have been sent to make things easy (for the people) and you have not been sent to make things difficult for them.” In effect, Muhammad encouraged his fellow Muslims to transcend anger and violence no matter how severe the situation or crime.

An Independent, Economically Empowered Iran Is Within Sights

Washington and its allies are in a quandary, abruptly shifting a 35 year long policy of isolating Iran as would a tanker attempting to turn on a dime to avoid hitting an iceberg.  Desperate times apparently call for desperate measures, as the Atlanticist campincreasingly realizes Iran’s economic and geostrategic worth and is now in the process of cautiously trying to repair ties in order to achieve wider political aims against a rising Eurasian juggernaut.  As tensions mount against a shrewd, calculating Kremlin, the West sees Iran’s natural gas supplies – second in the world in proven reserves behind Russia itself – as an essential replacement for Russia’s near monopoly over Europe.  Despite sanctions being in place, the French are salivating over re-entering Iran’s car and energy markets.  In fact, some Western analysts are even elevating Iran’s to being the leading ‘untapped emerging market’, representing over $1 trillion of value.

Morocco: Model for Islam

As early as the eighth century AD, horsemen coming from Arabia brought with them a new monotheistic religion to the region: Islam. They gradually converted the Christian and polytheist Amazigh people; the exception was the Jewish people, who kept their own monotheistic belief. In turn, the newly converted Amazigh, under the leadership of their able general, Tarik Ibnou Ziyad, crossed the strait that, since, was named after him, Gibraltar, and spread Islam in the Iberian Peninsula, which remained under Islamic rule until the Reconquista in 1492.

Nas Talks About Jay-Z’s Influence As An MC (throwback)

Nas said, “Hip-hop needs to thank God for Jay-Z. As a businessman, Martin Luther King [Jr.] died, Malcolm X died, Elijah Muhammad died, Noble Drew Ali died, the honarable Marcus Garvey died for Jay [and] for you and me. The fact that he’s doing what he’s doing is an awakening call for all of the Gods and Earths to wake up and understand the true calling

Hackers Can Steal Data Wirelessly From PCs That Aren’t Even Online

When Governments, Utilities, and corporations need to protect their most sensitive data, they create what’s called an air-gap network. It involves storing information on computers that are never connected to the Internet, an extreme method of isolation designed to prevent any chance of data leaking out.

Air-gap networks were once considered the “magic bullet” for securing data, but researchers from Ben-Gurion University in Israel have found a way to compromise those machines. Once a computer is infected with a particular kind of virus, hackers can trick the PC into relaying information that can be wirelessly retrieved from a mobile phone located outside of the room.

Rami’s 7 Cents: Why not be a Moor?

7 cents

When you look up Moor in the dictionary, it will connect to Berbers, Moros, Arabs, Moroccans, Saracens, Muslims, Jews, and Islam. And if you do the research on those other identities and their history, it ties you into the Egyptians, Mauritanians, Moabites, Atlanteans, Lemurians, and Muurs. These are specific Nations, people, cultures that you can trace and follow in detail.

When you look up “black” in the dictionary, after reading past the negative meanings of the term black, and dismissing the fact that it is a adjective and not a noun, AND overlooking that the etymological meaning of the word black is pale, black will connect you to the enslaved Negro race from Africa. This is very generic. Africa is an entire continent, so what Nations in Africa? What languages did we speak? Do you have any dates that we can trace and follow along? Do you notice how identifying as “black” can disconnect you from your history?

So the question I have is this. Based on the definitions and it’s connections to other great cultures and people from History, why not be a Moor? What is negative about identifying ourselves as such? What are we afraid of?

Iono…just my seven cents

Treaty of Peace and Friendship – United States of America and the Bey and Subjects of Tripoli of Barbary


Here is the Treaty of Peace and Friendship between the United States of America and Tripoli. Take a close look at Article 11.

Facts is Facts baby! Truth is here!! The Time is NOW!!

And don’t believe me. Look it up for yourself….for man knows not by being told.

Treaty of Peace and Friendship – United States of America and the Bey and Subjects of Tripoli of Barbary

Treaty of Peace and Friendship, signed at Tripoli November 4, 1796 (3 Ramada I, A. H. 1211), and at Algiers January 3, 1797 (4 Rajab, A. H. 1211). Original in Arabic. Submitted to the Senate May 29, 1797. (Message of May 26, 1797.) Resolution of advice and consent June 7, 1797. Ratified by the United States June 10, 1797. As to the ratification generally, see the notes. Proclaimed Jane 10, 1797.

The following fourteen pages of Arabic are a reproduction of the text in the original treaty book, first the pages of the treaty in left-to-right order of pagination, and then the ” receipt ” and the ” note ” mentioned, according to the Barlow translation, in Article 10. Following the Arabic and in the same order, is the translation of Joel Barlow as written in the treaty book-the twelve articles of the treaty, the “receipt,” and the “note”; and after these is the approval of David Humphreys from the same document, which is fully described in the notes. Following those texts is the annotated translation of 1930.


Treaty of Peace and Friendship between the United States of America and the Bey and Subjects of Tripoli of Barbary.


There is a firm and perpetual Peace and friendship between the United States of America and the Bey and subjects of Tripoli of Barbary, made by the free consent of both parties, and guaranteed by the most potent Dey & regency of Algiers.


If any goods belonging to any nation with which either of the parties is at war shall be loaded on board of vessels belonging to the other party they shall pass free, and no attempt shall be made to take or detain them.


If any citizens, subjects or effects belonging to either party shall be found on board a prize vessel taken from an enemy by the other party, such citizens or subjects shall be set at liberty, and the effects restored to the owners.


Proper passports are to be given to all vessels of both parties, by which they are to be known. And, considering the distance between the two countries, eighteen months from the date of this treaty shall be allowed for procuring such passports. During this interval the other papers belonging to such vessels shall be sufficient for their protection.


A citizen or subject of either party having bought a prize vessel condemned by the other party or by any other nation, the certificate of condemnation and bill of sale shall be a sufficient passport for such vessel for one year; this being a reasonable time for her to procure a proper passport.


Vessels of either party putting into the ports of the other and having need of provissions or other supplies, they shall be furnished at the market price. And if any such vessel shall so put in from a disaster at sea and have occasion to repair, she shall be at liberty to land and reembark her cargo without paying any duties. But in no case shall she be compelled to land her cargo.


Should a vessel of either party be cast on the shore of the other, all proper assistance shall be given to her and her people; no pillage shall be allowed; the property shall remain at the disposition of the owners, and the crew protected and succoured till they can be sent to their country.


If a vessel of either party should be attacked by an enemy within gun-shot of the forts of the other she shall be defended as much as possible. If she be in port she shall not be seized or attacked when it is in the power of the other party to protect her. And when she proceeds to sea no enemy shall be allowed to pursue her from the same port within twenty four hours after her departure.


The commerce between the United States and Tripoli,-the protection to be given to merchants, masters of vessels and seamen,- the reciprocal right of establishing consuls in each country, and the privileges, immunities and jurisdictions to be enjoyed by such consuls, are declared to be on the same footing with those of the most favoured nations respectively.


The money and presents demanded by the Bey of Tripoli as a full and satisfactory consideration on his part and on the part of his subjects for this treaty of perpetual peace and friendship are acknowledged to have been recieved by him previous to his signing the same, according to a reciept which is hereto annexed, except such part as is promised on the part of the United States to be delivered and paid by them on the arrival of their Consul in Tripoly, of which part a note is likewise hereto annexed. And no presence of any periodical tribute or farther payment is ever to be made by either party.


As the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion,-as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Musselmen,-and as the said States never have entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mehomitan nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.


In case of any dispute arising from a notation of any of the articles of this treaty no appeal shall be made to arms, nor shall war be declared on any pretext whatever. But if the (consul residing at the place where the dispute shall happen shall not be able to settle the same, an amicable referrence shall be made to the mutual friend of the parties, the Dey of Algiers, the parties hereby engaging to abide by his decision. And he by virtue of his signature to this treaty engages for himself and successors to declare the justice of the case according to the true interpretation of the treaty, and to use all the means in his power to enforce the observance of the same.
