The Historical and Political Origin of the Moroccan Imperial Divan adopted by the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine
Excerpt from Moors and Masonry by Abdullah El Talib Mosi Bey
Much thanks should be given to the few European Masons who have preserved Moorish History, Culture and Philosophy within their secret society orders. Now, it is time for the blood Royals, nobles and true sovereign Moors of Morocco to declare their Moorish nationality and to reclaim their Moorish birthright inherited lands as well as their Moorish sovereignty. The name America is linguistically and phonologically connected to the name Morocco. Today, the general public worldwide pronounces the name Morocco as America. The Great Masonic Secret! Mums the Word! Hence, the historical truth of the Annual Mummer’s Parade in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on January 1st – The Great Historical Cover Up.
The word Shrine is derived from the Latin word scrinium, meaning box or bookcase. It is a container or receptacle for sacred relics. Indeed, the Moors have had such a great impact on civilization that Moorish history, Moorish heritage, Moorish culture and Moorish Philosophy command attention and respect. Exposing the history of the extensive diplomatic relations between the “Moroccan Empire” and the European Powers will reveal to the public the true political reasons why the European Masons have created a shrine honoring the Moors.
The word Imperium is a Latin word meaning command or rule. To enshrine the Moors, the European Masons have duplicated the political structure of the Moroccan/Moorish Imperial Government and the Moroccan/Moorish Emperors’ political title with the names Imperials Potentate (as adopted by the Shriners), Sovereigns Grand Commander (as adopted by the Scottish Rites of 33 Degrees) and Royal Monarch (as adopted by the Grottoes).
Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine
The “Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine’s” organizational structure of “The Imperial Divan” is presented below. The Imperial Potentate is the highest - ranking officer within the “Shrine” and that position or “seat” is symbolic and in honor of His Imperial Majesty, the Emperor of Morocco. Other Secret Society Orders use the titles, Sovereign Grand Commander and Royal Monarch in honor of His Imperial Majesty, the Emperor of Morocco.
Potentate: What it means
The word, “Potentate” is derived from the Old Moorish Latin, potentia, meaning “of great power”. One who is bestowed the title Potentate is one who wields great controlling power. A Potentate may also be referred to as a “Monarch”; thus the political term, Monarchy, has its origin herein. A Monarch is a person who reigns over a kingdom or empire, as a sovereign ruler, a constitutional King or Queen, or any person holding a preeminent position of power and authority.
