4000-2000 B.C.: THE AFRICAN MIGRANTS TO EURASIA VIA THE PERSIAN GULF FROM NORTHEASTERN AFRICA AND SETTLEMENT IN THE TIGRIS AND EUPHRATES RIVER VALLEY (MIDDLE EAST, MESOPOTAMIA (UPPER AND LOWER TIGRIS AND EUPHRATES RIVER VALLEY), SUMERIA (LOWER TIGRIS AND EUPHRATES RIVER VALLEY)
NOTE VERY CAREFULLY THE FOLLOWING:
The Tribe that Populated the World: May 11, 2009:
May 11, 2009, Archaeology Daily Mail, article, “Out of Africa: the Tribe that Populated the World,” posted on
“The incredible human journey draws on archaeological and genetic studies from around the world to trace the expansion of the human race. It tells how the DNA of today’s populations of Europe, Asia, Australia, North America and South America can all be traced back to a single tribe of Africans. Modern humans are thought to have evolved about 195,000 years ago in East Africa and within 50,000 years had spread to other parts of the continent. It is thought that 70,000 years ago a dry period caused Red Sea levels to fall and the gap across its mouth to shrink from 18 miles to eight miles. A tribe of as few as 200 people took advantage of this and crossed the Arabian Peninsula.”
THE INVASION OF SUMERIA BY FOREIGN
(NORTHEASTERN EURASIA NOMADIC, HALF SAVAGE TRIBES: [LATER CLASSIFIED AS “SEMITIC,” “NON-BLACK,” “NON-AFRICAN” “WHITE OR CAUCASIAN” TRIBES!]
PRIOR TO THE FORMATION OF AKKAD, ASSYRIA, AND BABYLONIA;
NOTE CAREFULLY THE FOLLOWING:
“The powerful rulers of the Sumerian Third dynasty had initially been able to hold these nomadic and half savage tribes at a distance, but by the end of the third millennium B.C., the dam was ready to burst.
The northern food producing regions first attracted the attention and then the violent assaults of the interlopers, who through the domestication of the horse, afflicted the Sumerians with wave after wave of lightning swift attacks, creating both panic and famine in the populous southern city-states.
The Sumerians called these roving tribes: … the Mar-tu who know no grain. … the Mar-tu who know no house or town, the boors of the mountain. … the Mart-tu who does not bend (to cultivate the land), who eats raw meat, who has no house during his lifetime, who is not buried after his death.
[Footnote: E. Chiera, Sumerian Epics and Myths (Chicago), 1934, Nos. 58 & 112]
Professor Rashidi stated with regard to later invasions:
“Invasion of Sumeria by Elamites and of Akkad by Amorite tribes and with regard to:
“The ‘Mesopotamian empire’ then being ruled by Semites”:
“Is this how the now mighty Semites and Indo-Europeans entered history? If so, as seems apparent, it is quite ironic. … Any of these factors might have caused the decline of Sumer. Combined they spelled their doom.
Sumer’s Former Elamite Vassals Turned on Sumer With A Vengeance:
The seemingly stable empire rapidly fell apart and Sumer’ former vassals turned on her with a vengeance.
[Footnote: “The death blow came at the hands of the Elamites from the eastern hills, who overran Sumer and carried off the last king of the third dynasty, with the temples plundered of their treasures.
Professor Rashidi refers to an “Amoriete” Invasion of Akkad:
At the same time, Amorite tribes led by the ruler of Mari occupied the land of Akkad. This disaster marks the end of Sumerian political leadership in Mesopotamia.
The City-States of Isin and Larsa (another reference to a “Semite” invasion):
The territories of the third dynasty broke apart into city-states, such as Isin and Larsa; and the empires to follow in Mesopotamia, down to the Persian, were run by Semites.
[Footnote: William H. Mc Neill, The Origins of Civilization (Oxford University Press: London), 1968, pp. 67-68]
[Note: Who were the ASemites? One must remember that there were different racial and cultural elements in Susa and Elam).
Here Professor Rashidi indicated:
By the beginning of the second millennium B.C., non-africoid types became predominant in Iran’s mountainous regions).
By 1700 B.C., the Sumerian black-heads, who for a thousand years had dominated the Mesopotamian center stage and laid the foundation for every near eastern civilization that was to come after it, had, in essence, vanished from history” quoting the following:
‘Over the black-headed people the winds swept.’
[Footnote: >Over the black-headed people the winds swept. The people groan … Covered Ur like a garment, enveloped it like linen. … The raging storm has attacked unceasingly. The people groan.
… In its boulevards where the feasts were celebrated they were viciously attacked. In all its streets where they were wont to promenade, dead bodies were lying about; in its places where the festivities of the land took place the people were ruthlessly laid low. Mothers and fathers who did not leave (their) houses were overcome by fire. The young lying on their mother’s0000 bosoms like fish were carried off by the waters. The nursing mother – pried open were their breasts.
The black-headed people wherever they laid their heads were carried off.’
“Lamentations over the Destruction of Ur,” N. Kramer, ed. Assyriological Studies, no. 12, Oriental Institute (University Of Chicago Press: Chicago), 1940.]
Elam Was The First High Culture of Iran:
Elam was the first high culture of Iran. It had many affinities with Sumer and shared her eastern border.
The country was divided into two parts: Anshan and the mountainous north, and Susiana with its capital of Susa in the south.
The Early Elamites Lived in Anzan-Sousounka – the name Elam was introduced by the early Hebrew writers:
The early Elamites seem to have titled their land Anzan-Sousounka, with the term Elam perhaps introduced by the early Hebrew writers.
Who were the Elamtes? African Egyptian Archaeological Evidence of An African Origin:
As is to be expected, a number of scholars, e.g. Elliot Smith, demonstrate numerous similarities between the material cultures of early Elam and the Nile Valley, including arrow-heads, polished stone implements, pressure-flaking, mace heads, scripts, pottery forms, stone vases, female figurines, art motifs, and metal mirrors.

Sumarian and Babylonian Myths
Runoko Rashidi – The invasion of Sumeria by savage barbrians “from the east”:
“Invasion by half-savage Indo-European and Semitic people: … The continuing spread of Indo-European and Semitic peoples after the mid-third millenium B.C. had begun to isolate Sumer and seriously challenge, not only her dominance of Lower Mesopotamia, but her existence itself.”
The Tigris and Euphrates river valley civilization has been traditionally referred to as (1) the Sumerian civilization and (2) the Mesopotamian civilization. The Mesopotamian civilization said to include both Babylonia and Sumeria,
although Sumeria is geographically located in the southern part of the Tigris and Euphrates river valley near the Persian Gulf
and Babylonia is located in the northern part of the Tigris and Euphrates river valley along with Akkad, which later became Assyria.
Both Babylonia and Sumeria are said to be located in the Near East and a Fertile Crescent
said to encompass northern Africa, Egypt and extend northward to the Tigris and Euphrates river valley,
and together referred to as the Middle East or the the geographical area that is now Iraq and Iran.
It should be noted that the southern region of the Tigris and Euphrates river valley is geographically located nearer to the Persian Gulf and Africa which some consider the migratory path used by the African migrants who moved north to the Tigris and Euphrates river valley.
The homeland or place of origin of the Tigris and Euphrates so-called “Semitic” people may have been northeastern Eurasia where the Germanic tribes were settled.
