Blessings or Curse of Babylon

Babylon, Bāb-ilim, God’s Gate, in Hebrew Babel, Arabic Aṭlāl Bābil, was the capital of southern Mesopotamia 700BC-2,000BC. Around 700BC the city was at the height of its power. It is located south of Baghdad, Iraq. It was the main commercial center of the area and the largest city in the world (10 square km), the first city to reach a population above 200,000, so its wealth and prestige made it a target for foreign conquerors. It was a literary and religious center of its time worshiping God Marduk.

Imagine being born in Babylon! We are talking 2,000BC. The city of eternal FAME, cursed and blessed by so many, the best when at the height of its expression, scientifically supreme in many aspects - managing people, wealth, education, resources, benefiting ALL including the generations of our time.

Hanging Gardens of Babylon 600 BC, one of the Seven Wonders of the World Encyclopedia Brittannica

Just to give you an idea of how the place looked like, from the temple passed the paved Processional Way, its walls decorated with lions, bulls and dragons... East of the Processional Way had private dwellings built around the central courtyards. Between the inner and outer defense walls was irrigated land with a network of canals. The Greek philosophers refer to the Hanging Gardens of Babylon as the most beautiful man-made structures of the known World. The original Ishtar Gate of Babylon can be seen on display at Berlin’s Pergamon Museum since 1930.

So, who built such an advanced city? Who were Amorites?

By around the 2000BC to 700BC, much of southern Mesopotamia was occupied by Amorites, who had a semi-nomadic lifestyle, herding sheep. To be able to trace them, the historians observe their language. They were Northwest Semitic speakers. The Amorites (/ˈæməˌraɪts/; Sumerian 𒈥𒌅 MAR.TU; Egyptian Amar; Hebrew אמורי ʼĔmōrī; Ancient Greek: Ἀμορραῖοι) established several prominent city states in existing locations, Babylon was raised from a small town to an independent state and the largest city. The term Amurru in Sumerian texts refers to both them and to their principal deity.

The most widely spoken Semitic languages today are Arabic (300 million), Amharic (22 million), Tigrinya (7 million), Hebrew (5 million), Tigre (1.05 million), Aramaic (1 million) and Maltese (482,880 speakers).

During the early 1,000AC, the Phoenician language was spread throughout the Mediterranean by Phoenicians, to Tunisia, and Malta. The Phoenician alphabet is of fundamental importance in human history, as the source of the Greek alphabet, and of the Aramaic / Hebrew and Arabic writing systems.

In the earliest Sumerian texts, all western lands were known as the land of the mar.tu Amorites

The Amorites appear as nomadic tribes under chiefs, who forced themselves into lands they needed to graze their herds. Leaders with Amorite names assumed power in various places.

Amorite monarchs led a revolution of their times, they gave or let out for an indefinite period numerous parcels of royal land, freed the inhabitants of several cities from taxes and forced labor, creating a society of big farmers, free citizens and enterprising merchants.

Men, land and cattle ceased to belong physically to the gods or to the temples and the king.

The economic life of the country was no longer exclusively in the hands of Priests and Kings.

Biblical Amorites

The term Amorites is used in the Bible to refer to certain highland mountaineers who inhabited the land of Canaan, described in Genesis 10:16 as descendants of Canaan (Cain). They are described as a powerful people of great stature "like the height of the cedars" (Amos 2:9) who had occupied the land east and west of the river Jordan. They were refer to as "giants".

Indo European hypothesis and Aryan Warriors

The view that Amorites were tall nomads led some racist Nazi writers in the 19th century to claim they were a tribe of "Aryan" warriors.

Houston Stewart Chamberlain claimed that both King David and Jesus were Aryans of Amorite origin.

What Does the Rosetta Stone Say

In 1799, about a year into Napoleon Bonaparte’s occupation of Egypt, French engineers unearthed a large black granite stone with parallel inscriptions in two languages: Greek and Egyptian  and three scripts: Greek, Egyptian demotic, and Egyptian hieroglyphics. The stone, which fell into British hands in 1801 and is in the British Museum, is known as the Rosetta Stone and is one of the world’s best-known archaeological artifacts.

The Rosetta Stone, is an ancient Egyptian stone of black granite 114 cm long and 72 cm wide, found near the town of Rosetta (Rashīd), about 56 km northeast of Alexandria, bearing inscriptions in several languages and scripts; their decipherment has led to the understanding of hieroglyphic writing.

It is a copy of a decree passed in 196 BC by a council of Egyptian priests celebrating the anniversary of the coronation of Ptolemy V Epiphanes as king of Egypt. The Ptolemaic dynasty was a Greek speaking dynasty of Macedonian origin that ruled Egypt from the 4th to the 1st century BC.

The council of priests pledges a series of actions to bolster Ptolemy V Epiphanes’ royal cult, with the construction of new statues, better decorations for his shrines, and festivals for his birthday. The decree states that it should be inscribed in stone in hieroglyphics, and Greek and placed in temples throughout Egypt.

Why is all of this important?

“Did Moses part your hair?” jokes a child when they see the hairstyle of my daughter. “Is it a boy or an abortion?” exclaims another one jokingly, when fighting with the girl peers at school. In an attempt to be “naughty”, one of the kids created a poster “The Jews deserved it”. “Muslims can’t have sex before marriage”, hahaha, they were laughing at a Muslim friend, “But I can have 3 wives!” he shouted back. Yet when the moment comes and it is Ramadan, they all try not to eat in front of him supporting his fast dedicated to God. “Out of my country, go back home, go back home, you are a foreigner, an alien, “barranin” (an outsider in Maltese), said a Chinese protecting his table from his friends.

What a mix of nationalities and stories in the school of my daughter! We are deeply privileged to have this life-style as an experience! All screaming and laughing... This is a reality of the multicultural Malta: Catholics, Orthodox, Chines, Protestants, Muslims, Jews, all mixed together. Can you hear the kids laughing? Yet when the religious sentiment gets abused, when we start competing around “God” and “Goodness”, we confuse and abuse the very basic of sentiments, we start consciously or subconsciously believing that “Babylon is damned” and “God doesn’t love children of Cain”, “Non-believers should be prosecuted” and women are inferior... 

Ascending the Spiral of Consciousness we realise how we relate to each other in our drive for Goodness... The Universe's Micro and Macro Cosmos is at our feet searcing to manifest as deeper knowledge and understanding of our little Self within Conscious Living with all the sentiant beings on our little planet Earth.

Some 200,000 years ago in South-East Africa, Homo Sapiens entered the world stage. Human DNA is broken into 46 chromosomes, each parent contributing half. XX makes a female, XY makes a male. The combination depends on the father. Following the DNA story, around 80,000 years ago humans left Africa. By 40,000 years ago, we were all around the World. Malta’s first inhabitants date back 7,000 years ago, the culture that built over 30 temples, the oldest free standing stone structures in the world.

Their culture flourished for 2,000 years and has disappeared around 2000 BC. 

In 2008 the DNA study was published in The American Journal of Human Genetics, and early results of study showed that 50% of Maltese men are of Phoenician origin. The researchers looked for Phoenician DNA in modern day Lebanese people. The DNA in Greece, Crete, and Southern Italy had the same information. A study published in the Annals of Human Genetics in 2004, also points at Southern Italy. The decline of the Roman Empire was followed by Arab rule of the Islands.

At the turn of the 11th century Kings from Northern France gained Power in Southern Italy and expelled the Arab and Byzantine Rulers. There were only around 20,000 people up to 1500 AC. By the end of the 15th century all Maltese Muslims were converted to Christianity or have disguised their previous identities.

After 1500 AC Malta was given to the Order of the Knights of St John. In 1528 the population of Malta was 12,000 with 5,000 residing in Gozo. Within 10 years, it has almost doubled to 22,000 including the Knights. The knights stayed in Malta for 268 years. Most Knights were French and they excluded the native islanders from important positions, natives viewed them as arrogant intruders since they were even dismissive of the Maltese nobility. Even though French introduced Italian as the official language, the native inhabitants continued to speak in Maltese (Arabic). In 1566 they built Valletta, named for Grand Master la Vallette. Valletta was renowned as a center of art and culture containing works by Caravaggio. The island's hospitals and education were expanding. The Hospital of Malta included Schools of Anatomy, Surgery and Pharmacy. The first Public Library was established in 1761 and the University was founded in 1767. During the period of rule under the Knights, thousands of Muslim slaves, captured as a result of Mediterranean maritime wars were taken to Malta. It is estimated that in the mid-18th century, there were around 9,000 Muslim slaves. Although there were laws preventing them from interacting with the Maltese, they were allowed to sell their merchant in the streets of Valletta. A mosque was built in 1702 for Turkish slaves. As for Jews, The Knights would often take passengers of merchant ships hostage in order to get the ransom and it would be up to Jewish Societies for the Redemption of Captives to raise it. There were many Jewish slaves in Malta during this period and Malta was mentioned in Jewish literature of the period for its large enslaved Jewish population. In the time before World War II many Jews fleeing Nazism came to Malta as it was the only European country not to require visas of Jews.

The decree of the French National Assembly in 1789 abolishing feudalism in France also abolished the Order of the Knights of St John in France and seized their assets. Their Mediterranean stronghold of Malta was captured by Napoleon in 1798 during his expedition to Egypt. In 1834, the order settled in Rome. The Order issues its own passports, currency, stamps and even vehicle registration plates. The Order maintains diplomatic relations with 107 countries. The British amalgamated Malta into their empire during 164 years. Malta declared itself a republic in 1974 keeping two languages – Maltese and English.
