Canaan, Phoenicians or Jahi is the first and oldest civilization that flourished in the Jordan Valley. Canaan today included Lebanon, Palestine, Israel, Syria and Jordan

Far from producing only a local culture, the Canaanite Phoenicians have played an important role in human history. They made Europe history by introducing writing, they built Carthage in North Africa, they ruled the Mediterranean, and they certainly went to America in antiquity. We’ll leave the purely biblical approach to the historicity of these people to tell them exactly what their founding civilization was in the Middle East.

Evidence from ancient texts

Science calls the first inhabitants of the Middle East “Natoufiens”. These Natufians were the original Canaanite Phoenicians. In the ancient texts of Ras Shamra, the Phoenicians stated that their roots were in Egypt.

This African origin is very well documented by the Bible, which says in Genesis 10: 6: “The sons of Ham were Cush, Mizraim, Put and Canaan.”

The ham comes from Kam, which means charcoal / black in ancient Egypt. The word Kamit, which is the designation of origin for black people, is derived from this term. This word is similar to Kami / Kheum / Kembu / Kala, which means black / burned / charcoal in various current African languages.

Ham is therefore the biblical ancestor of the blacks and his sons are Cush (Sudan), Mizraim (Egypt), Put (Great Lakes Region and Southern Africa) and Canaan (Middle East).

Kanaan comes from Kin-Anu, which means belonging to the Anu; Anu is the name of the Blacks of the Great Lakes and Southern Africa, who founded Egyptian civilization in its early days. This means that the Canaanites were actually Egyptians who settled in the Middle East.

The Phoenician term is a Greek word that refers to the Canaanites, which means dark skin, according to famous British biologist and historian Gavin De Beer. The name that should preserve the African historiography of this civilization is Jahi. That’s what the ancient Egyptians called it.

Osteological evidence

In a study published in the journal Nature in 2016, Lofis Lararis et al. They report that “craniometric analyzes indicate that the Natufians may have immigrated from sub-Saharan Africa or from sub-Saharan Africa”.

These skull analyzes have been known for decades. Thus Cheikh Anta Diop in Nations Nègres et Culture in 1954 was much more sincere and said on page 167: “The man who was found in Canaan in prehistoric times, the Natufiann is black.” These negroid traits were found written on the skeletons of Tire in Lebanon, one of the capitals of Phenicia.

Evidence in Genetics

We know that Africans are the only people in the world who have little or no DNA from Neanderthals, a former hominid who lived in Europe until 28,000 years ago. Lofis Lazaris continues and at the end of the genetic studies tells us: “We conclude that the population of Eurasian ancestry (ie the first from the Middle East, Iran, Turkey) from Armenia is smaller or not related to the Neanderthals in Comparison to the non-original Eurasian people ”.

The first inhabitants of the Middle East, like the blacks of Africa, were therefore not related to the Neanderthals because they were actually blacks of Africa.

Since the first inhabitants of the Middle East were black, many African followers of the revealed religions are trying to spread the idea that these blacks had the origin of Judaism. It is not true. 3100 years ago, the Canaanite king Tjekerbaal declared that “(divine) wisdom came from Africa to reach the coast of the country where I live”.

The Canaanite religion was the African spirituality born at the beginning of Africa in southern Africa and in the Great Lakes. Like their Egyptian brothers, the Phoenicians were monotheists. They expressed their belief in a single God of masculine and feminine essence, which has different forms and manifestations. It is the purest African orthodoxy

Cheikh Anta Diop provides more information on this subject in Black Nations and Culture, pp. 169-170: “We understand that the Phoenician religion and worldview are, in a way, only replicas of the Egyptian religion. The Phoenician cosmogony is revealed by fragments of Sanchoniation translated by Philo de Byblos and reported by Eusebius. According to these texts, originally there was a chaotic and unspecified matter, breathing (Rouah) floating over chaos in constant disorder (Bohu).

The union of these two principles was called Cheptets, the desire that is the origin of all creation. After Egyptian cosmogony, however, there was originally an unspecified chaotic material, the primitive Num. It also contained the principle or god of evolution, Khepru.

As soon as the primitive Num attacks the Demiurgen Ra, his role will be fulfilled; From now on, the line to Osiris, Isis and Horus, the ancestors of the Egyptians, will be continuous.

Through successive generations of Phoenician cosmogony we come to Misor, the Egyptian ancestor, the Taaut, the inventor of literature and science (who is none other than the Egyptian Thoth). In the same cosmogony we reach Osiris and Canaan, the ancestors of the Phoenicians. The Phoenician cosmogony reveals again the relationship between the Egyptians and the Phoenicians, who have their origin in Cushite, which means black. “

The Bible even confirms this information about monotheism. The Canaanite ruler Melchizedek says that he is not only king, but also “priest of God Most High” (Genesis 14: 18-19).

The Egyptians: brothers, protectors and allies of the Canaanites

The fraternal ties between Egypt and Phenicia were strong, so their stories are inseparable. Diop adds on page 168 that: “Even in the most difficult times, in times of great shame, Egypt could rely on the Phoenicians, just as it could count on its brother in some respects.”

At the time of the unification of Egypt by the Sudanese-Egyptian pharaoh Naré (Narmer) around 1000 African years (3300 BC), the pharaonic civilization that became the most powerful state in the world in history already had some inhabitants, envoys and agents based in the Canaanite area. The pharaohs had control and sovereignty

This has been the case for much of Egyptian history. Canaan was weakened and attacked by white nomads from the desert and the sea whenever Egypt was in trouble; He then restored all of his beauty to the restored stability of his older Egyptian brother.

These are two groups of blacks who civilized Europe by teaching writing and science to the Greeks. Phoenix was an advanced base for the conquest of Iraq and Turkey by the pharaoh Djehuty-Mesu (Thutmosis III), the greatest African of all time.

Phoenician administration

Phenicia has never been a centralized state around the highest authority. The Phoenicians were divided into several independent cities / states, but knew their common origins and culture. About 3000 a. C., elements of this sedentary civilization have been established.

Each entity, by African standards, was headed by a priest-king. As in Africa, women have access to all positions, including that of high priest or monarch, like Queen Dido Elisse, who founded Carthage in Tunisia.

The Phoenicians built ports; the most important were Tyr, Sidon and Byblos, and their main source of wealth was international trade. They produced and sold high quality glass and textiles. They were best known for the production of purple mussels.

Its purple-violet fabrics were also used in Egyptian rites and probably royal and religious Indians. The Phoenicians supplied the Egyptians with cedar wood to build their giant ships. The Phoenicians also sailed on behalf of the Egyptians.

Phoenician architecture

The Canaanite cities were essentially fortified cities on the islands. The tire was 700 meters from shore and was surrounded by a wall 4.5 meters high. Sidon was a peninsula.

Almighty Phoenician Navigation
Phoenician ships

We discussed the types of boats belonging to the Phoenicians in a previous article mentioned by Carthage. The primary motivation for Phoenician shipping was commerce. Once they sailed the Mediterranean and built stalls on the coasts of southern Europe and Africa to sell their products.

After their knowledge of the stars and their tour on the high seas, they established colonies in Greece, Italy, Spain, Libya, Tunisia, Senegal and extended the letter that the Egyptians gave them. Thus the first European civilizations were born in the south, in Greece and Italy, near black.

The Phoenicians went to England to buy a box for Egyptian weapons. Their presence is documented here. They are also found in the Persian Gulf. The Canaanite navigator Hanno, who left the Maghreb 2,500 years ago, sailed along the coasts of West Africa and came to Cameroon by calling it Mount Cameroon, the “chariot of the gods”. This incredible ability to navigate allowed the Phoenicians to lead Egyptian and Sudanese troops to America 3,200 years ago. This expedition founded the Olmec civilization in Mexico.

The slow disappearance of the Phoenicians.

The very structure of Phenicia led to its disappearance. The territory was not united under a single government. Many Middle Eastern desert whites and sailors settled among cities. This entry of targets from Mesopotamia symbolizes the coming of Abraham, as indicated in the Bible. A group of targets defeated by Egypt, called the Philistines, also settled there. The Philistines became Palestinians.

With this white infiltration everywhere, the Phoenician language became Semitic. Whites in the Middle East transformed the Egyptian-Phoenician religion and adapted it to their culture to create Judaism. Judaism is therefore a white Semitic religion, not an African religion.
Whites in Phoenix

The mixing of breeds at Canaan quickly intensified. When Egypt weakened, the Canaanites had to face their own destiny. Alexander the Great conquered the country in 332 BC. C. then the Romans occupied it more than 2000 years ago. The phoenix has disappeared and its descendants are almost all white today. They are Lebanese, Syrians, Palestinians, Jews and Jordanians, although the white domination of all these peoples violently rejects the black essence of their glorious ancestors.
