Deciphering the 'Writing on the Wall'

Hetepu! Greetings!While the Ancient Afuraitkaitnit/Afurakanu [Black] people were the first to create and devise both pictographs and script with which to 'write', i.e., convey information, we all know that isn't the only way to 'get a message across.'I received an email today that sheds some light on the oft overlooked method of 'threat' used against our people when we 'dare' to exercise our Sovereignty! While this isn't a very subtle example, it is nonetheless a clear example of how the 'message' is sent out to undermine our peoples' culture, morality and life!Let us think of ways to support Gambia in its efforts to remain free of Dis-Sexual infestation!Looking 4ward 2 BUILDING Literate Sovereign Nations with you, Azania Speaks -- POWER!*************************************************************************************************From Friday's Jamiaca ObserverGambian president tells gays to leave or be beheadedAFPFriday, May 23, 2008BANJUL, The Gambia (AFP) - Eccentric Gambian President Yahya Jammeh has threatened to behead gays unless they left the country, according to reports yesterday."The Gambia is a country of believers... sinful and immoral practices (such) as homosexuality will not be tolerated in this country," the president told a crowd at a political rally, local journalists told AFP yesterday.He went on to say he would "cut off the head" of any gay person caught in The Gambia.The anti-gay campaign continued in the Gambian pro-government media this week with the Daily Observer publishing a virulent editorial."We have said it before and we will say it again. This is a Muslim and Christian country. Both the Koran and the holy Bible condemn homosexuality - pure and simple," the paper wrote on Monday May 19.British gay rights group Outrage said in a reaction yesterday that the Gambian leader's comments came as no surprise."Jammeh has a long history of homophobia," spokesman Peter Tatchell said."If he tries to carry out these threats, international aid donors are likely to withdraw their support, and foreign tourists will stay away in droves, thereby damaging the Gambian economy," he added.The tourism industry is vital to Gambia's economy as the West African nation lacks other natural resources.Jammeh drew condemnation from African AIDS groups after he claimed in January to have found a "miracle" treatment for HIV/AIDS.The method was based on medicinal plants and a Koranic verse. All participants were ordered to give up their antiretroviral drugs.
