Arabian Sights…..

In my heart my thanksgiving is everyday. From the morning star to the moon and the stars…It is our duty to thank the great mystery for all that is. See we do not try to define the indefinable…the mysterious one, the great mystery. And the world that the great mystery provides for everyone is destiny…When you begin the day with a thank you prayer and you live the day in thanksgiving…that is when you begin to understand that there is no such thing as possessions. Everything, everything belongs to everyone. With that philosophy as “primitive” as it may sound is how we live in this land…I come from a people who are very romantic…Whomever is non Indian and has their view point of us I invite them to come live with us..Not among those who have been schooled in your schools, I am talking about those who are still free, still following the ways of their ancestors. They are very few and far between but you can still find them in the western hemisphere…and find out like I have about their language, because language will tell you the hearts of the men. Those types of languages that are not as expressive as mine they have a limited world view. Thanksgiving! We did give you land, we did give you food, we did teach you how to use the food, plant the food, nourish the food, harvest the food, and how to cook the food. You see it is also a fact, a scientific fact, that the American Indian people has provided the world with 75% of the world’s food stuffs. 75%. I’ll give you some examples; you know we did not create corn it was given to us, but we did develop 6000 species of corn as we developed 10000 species of potatoes. And tomatoes, all kinds of tomatoes…Now the evil “possession”. Why is that so important to posses rather than to give?…I have noticed in all my travels that there is no celebration for taking…I am yet to find a celebration for taking–possessing…Why is it that is the main force in the world we live in except for a couple of days one in November and one in December? Why? I am not familiar with the art of possession, possessing! You know that is why there is war…there is war because of their need to possess. Is it because of greed? Is it because of selfishness? Is it because of fear? Or is it because of all of the above? Why celebrate thanksgiving, and giving, period, just one day out of the year? Why not every day? Why not every hour? Why not every night? …

The (Rotten) Roots of “The Tree”…

“Manifest Destiny”

In 1845, a democratic leader and influential editor by the name of John L. O’Sullivan gave the movement its name. In an attempt to explain America’s thirst for expansion, and to present a defense for America’s claim to new territories he wrote:
“…. the right of our manifest destiny to over spread and to possess the whole of the continent which Providence has given us for the development of the great experiment of liberty and federaltive development of self government entrusted to us. It is right such as that of the tree to the space of air and the earth suitable for the full expansion of its principle and destiny of growth.”

“The Requirement”

“I implore you to recognize the Church as a lady and in the name of the Pope take the King as lord of this land and obey his mandates. If you do not do it, I tell you that with the help of God I will enter powerfully against you all. I will make war everywhere and every way that I can. I will take your women and children and make them slaves….The deaths and injuries you will receive from here on will be your own fault and not that of his majesty nor of the gentlemen that accompany me.”
“The Requirement”, read by Spaniards to native tribes they encountered in the “New World”.

“European ‘Christian’ invaders systematically killed the aboriginal people because they felt that their beliefs were “ungodly.” The invaders started the genocide of the Native Americans by using warfare, death marches, destruction of their food supply, and poisoning. The genocide against the Native Americans was one of the most destructive, longest lasting genocides in the history of the Earth.In the early 18th century states such as: Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New Jersey promoted vigilantism of the settlers. The government feared the Native people and felt that they were a threat to society so they began “scalp bounty” on dead Indians. In many areas the killing of Indians became a business to the point where a person would be paid 100 pounds for killing a Native American. In the 18th century George Washington called the Native Americans “beasts of prey” and called for their total annihilation. In 1814, Andrew Jackson watched as his men brutally murdered 800 or more Creek Indians. Extermination of all surviving Indians was encouraged publicly by the Governor of California in 1851. In 1867, General William Tecumseh Sherman said, “We must act with vindictive earnestness against the Sioux even to their extermination: men, women and children.” From 1848 to 1870 over 120,000 Native Americans in California died, over 60 percent of those died from disease. However, the diseases were brought by the “49ers” so in a way the settlers were still killing the Indians, just in a different way.

Most of the massacre happened while the government was making “treaties” with the Native Americans.

“It is a deep thing that people still celebrate the survival of the early colonists at Plymouth … The real meaning of all that, then and now, needs to be continually excavated. The myths and lies that surround the past are constantly draped over the horrors and tortures of our present…Thanksgiving is a story of the murder of indigenous people and the theft of their land by European colonialists–and of the ruthless ways of capitalism…”

Native Blood: The Myth of Thanksgiving

http://bermudaradical.blogspot.com/2008/10/native-blood-myth-of-thanksgiving-by.html

“The original Europeans in the Americas were not immigrants, but colonists. And the US is not a nation of immigrants – it is a white colonial settler state, like South Africa under Apartheid, the former Rhodesia, Australia and Israel.”

Juan Santos
Immigration: A Nation of Colonists and Race Laws

Nobody but Americans celebrates Thanksgiving. It is reserved by history
and the intent of “the founders” as the supremely white American holiday,
the most ghoulish event on the national calendar. No Halloween of the
imagination can rival the exterminationist reality that was the genesis,
and remains the legacy, of the American Thanksgiving. It is the most
loathsome, humanity-insulting day of the year – a pure glorification of
racist barbarity.

We at are thankful that the day grows nearer when the almost four
centuries-old abomination will be deprived of its reason for being: white
supremacy. Then we may all eat and drink in peace and gratitude for the
blessings of humanity’s deliverance from the rule of evil men.

The End of American Thanksgivings Will Be a Cause for Universal Rejoicing

“The United States of America , was brought into existence through the massive, brutal enslavement of Black people and genocide of the Indigenous Red peoples. No amount of waffling or attempts to revise history can change this despicable reality. Moreover, even the continued existence of this nation is, in fact, based upon the deliberate maintenance of a massive system of racial, economic, judicial, and social exploitation – coupled with huge doses of hypocrisy and subterfuge.”

The people who now describe themselves as `Americans’ actually stole their country from the Native Americans.
They put the Indians in reservations (which got smaller and smaller). The Indians were civilised and spiritual but they had no guns and were an easy target. America was stolen by force.

At a meeting in New England in 1640 the following motions were put to the assembly.

1. The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.
2. The Lord may give the earth or any part of it to his chosen people.
3. We are his chosen people.

Naturally the assembled bunch of smug, barbarians voted `yes’ to all these motions, and thereby sanctified (in their minds) the theft of a nation.

It was generally agreed that the Indians were savages with no rights and yet both the American constitution and the Declaration of Independence were based on texts devised and used by Native American Indians – texts which included fundamental ideas on liberty, freedom and even legislature.

The American Government signed 370 treaties with the Native Indians but violated provisions in every one of these treaties.

The Americans now celebrate the theft of the country they call their own with a feast called Thanksgiving.

What happened was not merely tragic, it was diabolical

“The beast that digs and forges and consumes, blind to everything but its immediate needs, is then no longer the individual man…

In the past two hundred years the European has destroyed or corrupted a great number of ancient cultures which, if we have the courage and the honesty to look into the mirror they provide, show us all that we need to know of ourselves….

the most illuminating examples lie in the very heartland of the modern [western] world- in the encounter between the invading palefaced people and the Indians of North America…

What happened was not merely tragic, it was diabolical…

The conscious, calculated, methodical, official, and by no means anonymous destruction of the “red” race, its traditions and cultures, in North America and partly also in South America, far from being an unavoidable process….certainly remains one of the greatest crimes and most notable vandalisms of all human history. Since the presence in their midst of people who find meaning in the world is intolerable to those who think themselves the victims of a meaningless universe, the basic structure of the Indian’s spiritual life had to be destroyed…

These invaders [the Europeans] differed from all others…they alone had achieved the capacity to look upon everything in creation as material for exploitation, seeing a tree only as timber, a lamb only as meat, and a mountain only as the site for a quarry. This single-minded rapacity now taken for granted as natural to man was so strange to the Indians…that the invaders might as well have come from another planet…

the combination of greed and fraud and perfidy which they encountered in their dealings with the white man Nothing in their previous experience had forewarned them that men could be like that…..the invaders though to Indian eyes they appeared ignorant, physically dirty, mostly drunken and, in general, both Godless and lawless, carried dreadful weapons in their hands and enjoyed all the advantages which the unprincipled enjoy in their dealings with those for whom honour is paramount. The hordes spread out over a land of almost magical richness…and congratulated themselves upon pursuing so worthily their “civilizing mission.”

For the victims of this mission there could only be…sadness deeper than imagination can hold- sadness of men completely conscious, watching the universe being destroyed by a numberless and scorning foe…”

Gai Eaton, King of the Castle: Choice and Responsibility in the Modern World, P.131, 133-134

“Iniquity, committed in this world, produces not fruit immediately, but, like the earth, in due season, and advancing by little and little, it eradicates the man [/men]who committed it. …justice, being destroyed, will destroy; being preserved, will preserve; it must never therefore be violated.”
Manu 1200 bc
