Alalu’s grandson strikes out at King Anu in bid to wrest Earth from Sirian-Orion control
Anu was first taken on a familiarisation tour of the Abzu, the region of modern-day Africa where Enki had detected subterranean gold ores. Anu then chaired a meeting at Eridu, the Anunnaki headquarters on Earth, during which he spelt out what he envisaged of the Earth mission.
Full-scale, high-tech mining was to commence in the Abzu: Enki, like the gifted engineer he was, was tasked to devise the requisite equipment. A permanent settlement, an extension of Eridu, was to be established and a spaceport, an aerodrome and all the allied logistical infrastructure such as maritime vessels for shipping the ore from the Abzu to Eridu were to be constructed. Further, bases were to be set up on every habitable planet in the Solar System or where that was not feasible one or more of its satellites.
“Way stations from Nibiru to Earth to establish, all the Sun’s family in one Kingdom encompass!” Anu declared. “The first on Lahmu (Mars) to be fashioned, the Moon for the plans also to be considered. On the other planets or their circling hosts stations to set up.”
Anu’s decree explains why the Anunnaki to date maintains a presence on Mars, on the Moon and on Saturn’s largest moon Titan (There are arguably several other Anunnaki colonies on planets and/or their moons we are yet to discover, or which we are not aware of but the Illuminati do). Once again, it was the quick-thinking Enki who suggested a name for the proposed expanded Eridu.
“Let it the EDIN be called,” he said. EDIN (or ATEN in alternative renderings) meant “Abode of the Pure Ones”. The Anunnaki referred to themselves as the pure ones (also as righteous, upright, bright, or illuminated ones) to distinguish themselves from the Earthlings they would later create. They were “pure” because they came from the “pure” planet Nibiru or the “pure” region of the Sirius-Orion star system and therefore possessed a purer gene pool compared to ordinary mankind.
The Edin is the Eden of the Bible. Contrary to what the Bible may have us believe, Eden (the first one, as there would later be a second one in Africa) was not a zoological and botanical garden fashioned by “God” as a dedicated haven for Adam and Eve. It was part of a collection of city-states established and dwelt by the Anunnaki, who mankind would later come to call “gods”. The Levites, who wrote the first five books of the Bible, did so when the Jews were in captivity in Babylon in the 6th century BC. Thus they incorporated a lot of data on the origins of man they happened upon there that Sumerians had set down on cuneiform clay tablets and cylinder seals.
Tragically, the Levite scribes so deliberately spun and slanted this information to suit their own contrived theology that some aspects of the Bible border on legend. “Scripture” is far from “God-breathed”: a great deal of it is simply the product of the whims and caprices of inherently fallible man, like you and me. When I say this to fellow Christians, I become an object of scorn and suspicion such is this Earth, my Brother.
ENLIL AGAIN SUPPLANTS ENKI
At the Eridu indaba, it was Enki who spoke after Anu, rather than Alalu, who remained curiously quiet. Enki’s turn preceded Enlil because at the time, Enki was Earth’s Chief Executive. In other words, on Earth Enki was senior to Enlil.
Regarding the proposed Edin, Enki said, “The commander of the Edin let me be, let Enlil the gold extraction perform.”
Enki was an innately creative person and so he preferred making a showcase of the Edin to superintending over mining activities in the blistering hot Abzu, a hostile environment to an albino-white race that was used to the perennial cold of Nibiru. He also knew that in terms of executive authority, the overseer of the Edin would carry more clout and command more respect and the goodwill of the Anunnaki, whereas the exacting tasks of underground mining would turn the Abzu overseer into a kind of pet hate.
Enlil, however, took strong exception to Enki’s pitch. An ex Air Force General and a trained aeronautical engineer, Enlil thought it was he who was best suited for the tasks of the Edin: “Of commanding and tasks to perform I am the better; of skyships I have the knowledge. Of the Earth and its secrets my brother Ea is the knower. The Abzu he discovered: let him of the Abzu be the master.”
When Enki tried to counter him using plain logic and tools of analysis, Enlil, who habitually operated on a short fuse, fired back angrily and abrasively and a slanging match between the two step brothers ensued. King Anu, who had the quiet and calm demeanour of Enki, finally intervened. He reminded his sons to not be oblivious of the fact that they were effective joint rulers of Nibiru rather than mere princes: when he replaced Alalu as King of the Sirian Empire, he did declare to the Nibiru nation that he was going to rule that planet in particular with his two sons. Since the three of them were co-equal, Anu proposed that they settle the matter by casting lots. The outcome would determine who among the three would go back to preside over Nibiru, who would go to the Abzu and who would stay in Eridu. The two sons nodded in concurrence.
“The three, father and two sons, clasped their hands together,” recalls Enki in his memoirs as ghost-written by Zechariah Sitchin. “They cast lots; by the lots the tasks they divided.”
The result redounded to Enki’s displeasure, who was not that lucky a being. King Anu was to return to Nibiru; Enlil was to run the Edin; and Enki was to take charge of the Abzu. Enki was so crestfallen he shed tears: he had such an attachment to Eridu, which he had built from scratch (Alalu was of the view, which he aired at a later stage, that Anu had rigged the outcome in favour of Enlil given that Enlil was his biological son whereas Enki not only was his step son but a son-in-law of his nemesis Alalu). He was only consoled by the assurance by Anu that although he would operationally be based in the Abzu, he would still remain the Lord of Eridu, though Enlil would be overall-in-charge of the Edin.
The new scenario thus was this: Enlil had now supplanted Enki as Earth’s Chief Executive. He was now “Lord of the Command”, that is, Earth’s Commander-In-Chief, though he would in due course be better known as Jehovah/Yahweh. Enlil was also put in overall charge of the Igigi, the Anunnaki fighter astronauts in orbit around Earth. That way, he supplanted Marduk, Enki’s firstborn son, as the “Prince of the Power of the Air” (EPHESIANS 2:2).
Enki, on the other hand, would have authority over all of Earth’s seas as he would be in charge of maritime shipments of ores from the Abzu to Eridu. Hence his other characterisation in due course as Poseidon, the God of the Sea. Enki would also be in charge of all of Earth’s firm lands except the Edin. This was very fitting in that prospecting for mineral ores, particularly those of gold, all over the Earth was his responsibility. As such, when Enki is referred to as “Lord of the Earth”, it means two things (a point most scholars including Zechariah Sitchin have missed). First, he was the Eridu (stem of the English term “Earth”) Lord. Second and even more important, he was overall in charge of the firm lands, where mineral prospecting and mining activities were taking place. Otherwise, the real Lord of the Earth was Enlil.
Poor Enki! He should have been in line to inherit the Sirian-Orion throne but that was denied him. He should have been King of Earth after Alalu but that again was deprived him. He was a first-class intellect, the Anunnaki’s greatest brain, something even Enlil himself openly acknowledged, but where it came to ascending up the imperial totem pole, he was destined to be no higher than second.
ALALU UNDER HOUSE ARREST
Meanwhile, Alalu was dumbfounded at all the goings-on right under his nose. He had been watching with ominous silence, his hands nonchalantly folded on his chest. As Anu prepared to board the celestial boat back to Nibiru, Alalu stepped up to him and called for an impromptu, all-inclusive meeting which Anu reluctantly consented to. In the meeting, Alalu wondered aloud to Anu why he was parceling out Earth to his sons when he well knew that he (Alalu) was Earth’s sovereign.
Anu’s response was that the status quo hadn’t changed: Alalu was still King of Earth. Enlil and Enki were simply his right-hand men, just as they had been to Anu himself on Nibiru. What they had been assigned were simply executive roles. They remained subordinate to and accountable to Alalu.
Alalu wasn’t convinced: he was of the view that he was being systematically dispossessed of authority over the affairs of Earth by sleight of hand and before long, he would be a nobody. Enki tried to assure him that he personally would not allow such a scenario as it would be criminal and therefore illegal. Alalu was aware Enki as his son-in-law meant well but Enlil worried him. Anu had elevated Enlil above Enki and put him in charge of the armed forces, including the Igigi, the fighter-spacemen who were previously superintended over by his grandson Marduk. To Alalu, it was clear Anu’s secret wish was to purge all those key figures who were related to Alalu in one way or the other so that at some stage Alalu was relegated to a nonentity.
As Anu set to return to Nibiru, Alalu and his grandson Kumarbi began to communicate by radio, in code language. Kumarbi got the message. Kumarbi had been left on one of the space stations in orbit around Earth and when Anu arrived there to pick him up en route to Nibiru, he was nowhere to be seen. But somehow, Anu managed to contact him using the Anunnaki’s ultra-sophisticated communication devices and wondered where he was. Kumarbi’s response was frank and forthright: he was staying put and would not be returning to Nibiru with Anu.
Kumarbi’s gesture threw a shudder into Anu. This must spell trouble, Anu thought. Anu straightaway contacted Alalu to get him to ram sense into his grandson but Alalu made it clear Kumarbi was an adult and he was in no position to dictate matters to him. Frustrated that he wasn’t getting anywhere with Alalu, Anu frantically got in touch with Enlil and the two decided, to the exclusion of Enki, that Alalu should be divested of his powers as overall ruler of Earth and must be put under house arrest. At the same time, a warrant of arrest should be issued immediately for Kumarbi.
But it was too late. Kumarbi had already gotten into stride as all these instructions ran round.
KUMARBI IS KING
When travelling between planets or star systems, the Anunnaki had several modes of serial transport. First, there was the natural means of transport using the planet Nibiru itself. A planet is a spaceship in its own right, more so in the case of Nibiru in that its elongated, comet-like orbit (it’s a comet-planet) straddles the circuits of all the planets of the Solar System. The Anunnaki typically journeyed to Earth when Nibiru was in the ecliptic, setting off from the planet using a celestial boat, their name for a spaceship.
However, King Anu did not simply travel by a celestial boat. He also used another form of transport, a mothership. This was a hollowed out asteroid which was the size of a mini-planet. It was called the MATA. Another of its name was the Royal ARI (The Sirian-Orion Queen also had her own mothership known as the ATEN, which we will dwell upon in due course). Although it was primarily a cosmic battle ship, the Royal Ari was a self-contained mini-world which could accommodate millions of people. To most people in there, it was the only world they knew. They were born in that artificial world, which was of Paradise proportions in terms of the quality of life, and died there.
Because of its humongous size and therefore its powerful gravitational force, the Royal Ari was stationed yonder in space, well away from both Earth and the Moon. King Anu used a celestial boat to depart from Nibiru and join the Ari, to depart the Ari to land on Earth, and vice versa. So as his celestial boat neared the Ari, it was suddenly fired upon from the direction of the Ari. King Anu’s Dak Elite Royal Guard had been trained for such a contingency and so they changed course in a desperate endeavour to get the King to safety. What had happened was that Kumarbi not only had mobilised the Iku and Beh forces against King Anu but he had also captured the Ari flagship itself with very little resistance.
This short-lived battle between the forces of Anu (the Titans) and the forces of Kumarbi (the Olympians) is characterised in the Sumerian tablets as a wrestling match between Anu and Kumarbi (or Alalu in some accounts) in which Prince Kumarbi bites Anu in the genitals and wrenches them off. It’s all allegorical language. What actually happened was that Kumarbi set his DAK forces (the collective Iku and Beh Anunnaki warriors) on the Ari mothership. The Dak were figuratively the “teeth” of the Sirian-Orion Empire and the Ari mothership was Anu’s “Ball of Power”. Thus by invading and capturing the Ari flagship, Kumarbi had prised this ball from Anu’s control. Sadly, even our highly esteemed Zechariah Sitchin literarised the plainly allegorical account.
In Greek mythology (which is actually rooted in fact), the same story says Zeus gathered the younger gods (Anunnaki) on Mount Olympus and waged war against Uranus the father of the gods who was at the head of the Titans, defeating them at long last. In this story, Zeus refers to Kumarbi. Kumarbi’s other title was “ZU”, meaning “Supreme Master” (of the Dak forces). When he seized the Ari mothership, he became King, or ZU-ZU (doubling a title in antiquity denoted a senior royal rank). Zu-zu, also rendered Zu-uz, would in time be corrupted to ZEUS. The Uranus of the story is Anu and the Titans are the Anunnaki forces loyal to Anu who manned the Ari.
When Kumarbi captured the Ari, he earned another title AR-ZU, meaning “Supreme Lord of the Ari”. Since he was now the new King of Earth, he took occupancy of the palace of his grandfather Alalu, now an ex-King, which was perched atop a mountain as most ancient fortresses were. Alalu’s palace was known as “AL-AMBA-HU”. Kumarbi renamed it “'AL-AMBA-ZU”, meaning “Place of gathering of AL (Alalu) and ZU (Kumarbi)”. In English, Al-amba-zu becomes “Olympus”, hence “Olympians” for the name of the Dak forces who fought under Kumarbi.
Note that Kumarbi did not forcefully displace his grandfather as King of Earth. Alalu instigated the Kumarbi-led putsch against Anu and voluntarily gave way to Kumarbi simply because in the greater scheme of things, it scarcely made a difference: it was the House of Alalu which still ruled.
Kumarbi, who officially ruled under his real name Alargar, became King of Earth after Alalu had ruled for 28,800 years (8 shars), although a part of this tenure falls to Alalu’s master geneticist Alulim, who as we have already related was the first Sirian to land on Earth and ruled for a while before Alalu arrived. It explains why some ancient records mistakenly assign the entire 28,800 years to Alulim as if it is a ploy to write Alalu out of history altogether.
Seventy-seven years ago, on the evening of December 2, 1943, the Germans launched a surprise air raid on allied shipping in the Italian port of Bari, which was then the key supply centre for the British 8th army’s advance in Italy.
The attack was spearheaded by 105 Junkers JU88 bombers under the overall command of the infamous Air Marshal Wolfram von Richthofen (who had initially achieved international notoriety during the Spanish Civil War for his aerial bombardment of Guernica). In a little over an hour the German aircraft succeeded in sinking 28 transport and cargo ships, while further inflicting massive damage to the harbour’s facilities, resulting in the port being effectively put out of action for two months.
Over two thousand ground personnel were killed during the raid, with the release of a secret supply of mustard gas aboard one of the destroyed ships contributing to the death toll, as well as subsequent military and civilian casualties. The extent of the later is a controversy due to the fact that the American and British governments subsequently covered up the presence of the gas for decades.
At least five Batswana were killed and seven critically wounded during the raid, with one of the wounded being miraculously rescued floating unconscious out to sea with a head wound. He had been given up for dead when he returned to his unit fourteen days later. The fatalities and casualties all occurred when the enemy hit an ammunition ship adjacent to where 24 Batswana members of the African Pioneer Corps (APC) 1979 Smoke Company where posted.
Thereafter, the dozen surviving members of the unit distinguished themselves for their efficiency in putting up and maintaining smokescreens in their sector, which was credited with saving additional shipping. For his personal heroism in rallying his men following the initial explosions Company Corporal Chitu Bakombi was awarded the British Empire Medal, while his superior officer, Lieutenant N.F. Moor was later given an M.B.E.
Remember: bricks and cement are used to build a house, but mutual love, respect and companionship are used to build a HOME. And amongst His signs is this: He creates for you mates out of your own kind, so that you may find contentment (Sukoon) with them, and He engenders love and tenderness between you; in this behold, there are signs (messages) indeed for people who reflect and think (Quran 30:21).
This verse talks about contentment; this implies companionship, of their being together, sharing together, supporting one another and creating a home of peace. This verse also talks about love between them; this love is both physical and emotional. For love to exist it must be built on the foundation of a mutually supportive relationship guided by respect and tenderness. As the Quran says; ‘they are like garments for you, and you are garments for them (Quran 2:187)’. That means spouses should provide each other with comfort, intimacy and protection just as clothing protects, warms and dignifies the body.
In Islam marriage is considered an ‘ibaadah’, (an act of pleasing Allah) because it is about a commitment made to each other, that is built on mutual love, interdependence, integrity, trust, respect, companionship and harmony towards each other. It is about building of a home on an Islamic foundation in which peace and tranquillity reigns wherein your offspring are raised in an atmosphere conducive to a moral and upright upbringing so that when we all stand before Him (Allah) on that Promised Day, He will be pleased with them all.
Most marriages start out with great hopes and rosy dreams; spouses are truly committed to making their marriages work. However, as the pressures of life mount, many marriages change over time and it is quite common for some of them to run into problems and start to flounder as the reality of living with a spouse that does not meet with one’s pre-conceived ‘expectations’. However, with hard work and dedication, couples can keep their marriages strong and enjoyable. How is it done? What does it take to create a long-lasting, satisfying marriage?
Below are some of the points that have been taken from a marriage guidance article I read recently and adapted for this purposes.
POSITIVITY Spouses should have far more positive than negative interactions. If there is too much negativity — criticizing, demanding, name-calling, holding grudges, etc. — the relationship will suffer. However, if there is never any negativity, it probably means that frustrations and grievances are not getting ‘air time’ and unresolved tension is accumulating inside one or both partners waiting to ‘explode’ one day.
“Let not some men among you laugh at others: it may be that the (latter) are better than the (former): nor let some women laugh at others: it may be that the (latter) are better than the (former): nor defame nor be sarcastic to each other, nor call each other by (offensive) nicknames.” (49:11)
We all have our individual faults though we may not see them nor want to admit to them but we will easily identify them in others. The key is balance between the two extremes and being supportive of one another. To foster positivity in a marriage that help make them stable and happy, being affectionate, truly listening to each other, taking joy in each other’s achievements and being playful are just a few examples of positive interactions. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “The believers who show the most perfect faith are those who have the best character and the best of you are those who are best to their wives”
Another characteristic of happy marriages is empathy; understanding your spouses’ perspective by putting oneself in his or her shoes. By showing that understanding and identifying with your spouse is important for relationship satisfaction. Spouses are more likely to feel good about their marriage and if their partner expresses empathy towards them. Husbands and wives are more content in their relationships when they feel that their partners understand their thoughts and feelings.
Successful married couples grow with each other; it simply isn’t wise to put any person in charge of your happiness. You must be happy with yourself before anyone else can be. You are responsible for your actions, your attitudes and your happiness. Your spouse just enhances those things in your life. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “Treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers.”
Successful marriages involve both spouses’ commitment to the relationship. The married couple should learn the art of compromise and this usually takes years. The largest parts of compromise are openness to the other’s point of view and good communication when differences arise.
When two people are truly dedicated to making their marriage work, despite the unavoidable challenges and obstacles that come, they are much more likely to have a relationship that lasts. Husbands and wives who only focus on themselves and their own desires are not as likely to find joy and satisfaction in their relationships.
Another basic need in a relationship is each partner wants to feel valued and respected. When people feel that their spouses truly accept them for who they are, they are usually more secure and confident in their relationships. Often, there is conflict in marriage because partners cannot accept the individual preferences of their spouses and try to demand change from one another. When one person tries to force change from another, he or she is usually met with resistance.
However, change is much more likely to occur when spouses respect differences and accept each other unconditionally. Basic acceptance is vital to a happy marriage. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “It is the generous (in character) who is good to women, and it is the wicked who insults them.” “Overlook (any human faults) with gracious forgiveness.” (Quran 15:85)
COMPASSION, MUTUAL LOVE AND RESPECT
Other important components of successful marriages are love, compassion and respect for each other. The fact is, as time passes and life becomes increasingly complicated, the marriage is often stressed and suffers as a result. A happy and successful marriage is based on equality. When one or the other dominates strongly, intimacy is replaced by fear of displeasing.
It is all too easy for spouses to lose touch with each other and neglect the love and romance that once came so easily. It is vital that husbands and wives continue to cultivate love and respect for each other throughout their lives. If they do, it is highly likely that their relationships will remain happy and satisfying. Move beyond the fantasy and unrealistic expectations and realize that marriage is about making a conscious choice to love and care for your spouse-even when you do not feel like it.
Seldom can one love someone for whom we have no respect. This also means that we have to learn to overlook and forgive the mistakes of one’s partner. In other words write the good about your partner in stone and the bad in dust, so that when the wind comes it blows away the bad and only the good remains.
Paramount of all, marriage must be based on the teachings of the Noble Qur’an and the teachings and guidance of our Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). To grow spiritually in your marriage requires that you learn to be less selfish and more loving, even during times of conflict. A marriage needs love, support, tolerance, honesty, respect, humility, realistic expectations and a sense of humour to be successful.
The past week or two has been a mixed grill of briefs in so far as the national employment picture is concerned. BDC just injected a further P64 million in Kromberg & Schubert, the automotive cable manufacturer and exporter, to help keep it afloat in the face of the COVID-19-engendered global economic apocalypse. The financial lifeline, which follows an earlier P36 million way back in 2017, hopefully guarantees the jobs of 2500, maybe for another year or two.
It was also reported that a bulb manufacturing company, which is two years old and is youth-led, is making waves in Selibe Phikwe. Called Bulb Word, it is the only bulb manufacturing operation in Botswana and employs 60 people. The figure is not insignificant in a town that had 5000 jobs offloaded in one fell swoop when BCL closed shop in 2016 under seemingly contrived circumstances, so that as I write, two or three buyers have submitted bids to acquire and exhume it from its stage-managed grave.
