Greetings in the name of Amen! The word ARAB means to be nomadic or to move about. this means they have no home or original land. They take whatever they want as they stroll along. We also have to look at who we classify as ARAB these days and why is it done. Europeans will say that Osama Bin Laden is a SAUDI ARAB-IAN, but actually he is a East Indian Saudi(from Saudi India) The Saudi took over and conquered Arabia. Sadam Hussein is an Ottoman Turk. You have northern ethiopians being classified as "north african caucasians". they even call actor Charlise Theron a South African just because she was born there. She is still a European/white. Nobody goes to Europe and divides the people and re-write their his-story, but of course their whole philosopy is to "divide and conquer".

You don't mencion it at any time in this very good site, it's a shame, I belive it's part of Zanzibar's history, right? Just like Portuguese do, and in a much better way then British! You should improve this site by puting in some more information of the early history. I study Art History and I'm sure I wont die before I visit Zanzibar! (Rita)

Portugal took possession of Zanzibar in 1503-1698, then became part of Oman in 1698.

ZANZIBAR AND YEMEN BOTH SUFFERING UNDER ARAB INVASION AND TERROR. LINK http://www.andaman.org/book/chapter47/text47.htm A recent visitor to the Yemen (who wishes to remain anonymous) has sent us the following report. I noticed immediately that there are people there (in the Yemen) that do not resemble the Arabs in any way and that do not seem to have much to do with the Arab Yemanis even though they are part of Yemeni society. I am not an anthropologist but I think I can say with a fair degree of certainty that there are Negritos in the Yemen. I have read your description on your web-site and they alargely fit eh black-skinned Yemenis that I have see: short stature, black skin and that odd type of hair on their heads. It must be said that the Negritos in the Yemen are nto particularly noticeable because of the their short stature since the Yemeni Arabs also are not very tall (Yemeni women around 1.6 m/ 5.25 ft, men are a little taller). The Negritos are popularly called "Black Yemenis". Nobody seems to know where they come from and how long they have been in the country. Some claim that they have been brought to the Yemen as slaves at once time or another, others say that they have "always" been living there as part of the Arab population. The "Black Yemenis" are virtually all muslims. What has surprised me is the social status of these people. The "black Yemenis" are at the bottom of the Yemeni social structure and are despised as below even beggars. One also has to know that Arabs are highly racist: white skin = good/high, dark skin = bad/evil/low. Society is structured as follows: at the top are a few sheikhs and princes who hold religious as well as poltical power. The president of the republic also has to be counted here. At this level power is balanced and money distributed. Below are a few respected families abd clans who have chosen and hold their own corner within the system and exercise power there. The descendants of the last Qasimid Imam of San'a overthrown in 1962 belwong here. There is no middle class, really, except perhaps in the capital. That is why the poorer, less educated classes who form the mass of the population follow immediately below the upper classes. Within the lower classes there are many levels according to profession and skin colour.Still lover the the beggars and street vendors and at the very bottom are the "black Yemenis". These people with black skin work mostly as street sweepers and in garbage removal. Female "black Yemenis" are of prostitutes. Many live in shacks and collect their food from garbage cans. I was shocked to see how they were treated by the "light-skinned" Yemenis. I have often seen how they were beated and kicked. As to myself, I have always found them quite friendly. One incident has remained with me: I had just come back from a long trip and wanted to take my luggage from the roof of the Jeep. A "black Yemeni" passed and wanted to help me but before he could do so he was pushed aside by a light-skinned Yemeni using abusive language towards him. This new man then helped me and explained "hoa mush tamam" ("he is not a good person"). When I asked him why he said such a thing, he explained "he is black". I observed more and more that the Yemenis are afraid of the "black Yemenis" and do not want to have anything to do with them. It is very rare to see a light-skinned Yemeni married to a dark-skinned woman. This is a taboo that prevents a mixing of Arabs and "black Yemenis". Another thing I noticed: the Yemenis distinguish between black African migrants (who are also black) and "black Yemenis". There are quite a few Somalis and other Africans in the Yemen. Although they are black-skinned, too, they are treated better. TO ALL YEMENI POSTERS IS ARAB CULTURE SO PRIMITIVE. IS YOUR SOCIETY REALLY THIS BACKWARD...ARE YOU HINDUS IN DISGUISE!

Yes indeed, Mr.Hamed Al-Saidi, I support you. If we can't forget but for sure we can forgive. As Africans, we should cultivate short memory of hate, like the icon 'Mzee' Nelson Mandale. He is surely a role model for the current generation and those yet to be born. After spending 27good years of his life in bondage, he went ahead and had breakfast with the very people who locked him up and almost thew away the Key. Talking much about the evils of the former Zanzibar rulers will take us no where in this gloalised planet, in terms of development parameters. mohosman104@hotmail.com

Well by reading some of the articles I felt like living in that period of time I felt the sadness and happiness of what was happening there. And I was really astonished of the living standards compared to Oman at the same period. Im not really sad that the Africans took over the island, because at the end its their land. But Im sooooo sad of what they have done to the Omanies and other Arabs who were living there it was really tragedy :( Many thanks to the hard work you have put into this valuable site.

A tribute to King Kelly: You were not always as good as others wanted you to be but you always were you. Zanzibar missed you as a its Sultan, but never missed you as one of her own. I thank Allah that you were allowed to have Zanzibar as your resting place. You were born special and lived apecial. Who else ould be brought out of jail by Marhemu Abeid to play football for Zanizibar, who else had the picture to prove it. I could go on and on, but thats not the point, my tribute to you is in my heart, I can only try to share it knowing its impossibility I pray Allah rest your soul.

How wonderfull words of courageous has been by comment 501. It is time to wake-up in the fight against these injustice collaborators so called ruling CCM who have killed innocent peoples and confisicated their properties without any reason and yet they called revolutionary. Time has come up now to end their massacres. Youth get up and fight and never be scared of their so called marungu ya F.F.U.

You keep on lying to the Zinzabaris there was revolution what kind of revolution. Where by a foreigner comes and rule our islands in the name of Catholic Church Movement (CCM) and you call that a revolution. Abeid Aman Karume was a foreigner from Nyasaland, he was just raised up in the isles. So I would like to advise the so called current president to leave and let Zanzibar free. Because we are tired of there massacres. this time we as Zanzibaris We shall rise up and defend our Dignity and Soveirinity by any means neccessary. Let Zanzibar be free, this time is not a joke we shall fight against anyone who hinders our nation weither America, England, France with there CCM banner that they have established it for fortyone (41) years now. War Zanzibar children war Zanzibar Youth War Zanzibar people we rather all die than to see this banner of Tanganyika (CCM) flying all over our isles. It is real time for revolution now for Zanzibaris not the 1964 so called revolution they just killed our dear brothers sisters and beloved ones who never had even a stick to resist them. e-mail alpaccinoking@yahoo.com
