    She's claiming that all Somalis were originally Hebrews (Yibir) at 41:27 :ohhh:
    I always thought that the only black Jews were the Ethiopian Jews. I didn't or even consider the fact that Yibirs and all the other Somali clans were Jews. :ohhh:
    The Quran did say that the Jews were very hard headed. And that is the best description of Somalis.:mjgrin:
    It feels great to be apart of God's chosen people.:wow:

    The Yibir might be Jews. That's what they claim at least

    :salute: one "mystery" I've yet to have uncovered is what can explain thus fascination European people globally had for the Moors, to the point noble families from all over started to represent them in something as important as their coats of arm? When the Moors represented a potential invaders for them?

    I saw a theory that explained that there may have been commercial exchanges happening between european Moor structures and regions they weren't beefing with, in France notably. Maybe it comes from here.

    I also peeped how some historians try to paint these heraldic representations as slaves, saying that the white fabric they wear around the head represented a liberated slave, clumsily implying families view this symbol as being synonymous with freedom :francis:
