African Influence on Judaism?
There is no Afrikan influence on Judaism. Judaism is an Afrikan way of life. It was developed in Afrika by an Afrikan people who spoke an Afrikan language. It was adopted, adapted, then co-opted by non-Afrikans in a similar fashion that the way of life of the Yoruba Orisha worship (Vodoun, Santeria, Lacumi, Condomble, etc) is being co-opted and altered by non-Afrikans today. To speak of an Afrikan influence on Judaism is like speaking of an Afrikan influence on Orisha worship. It is not an Afrikan influence, it is Afrikan. The Sinai peninsula is clearly within Afrika. It was there the Israelites claim to receive their oral and written law. Geologically speaking all of the adjacent Arabian peninsula clear up to Syria is part of the Afrikan continent. The Great Rift Valley extends from Mozambique to Syria. Continental drift of tectonics shows the Arabian plate breaking off from the continent and colliding into the Asian plate to create the mountain ranges of Turkey and Armenia.

The Hebrew language belongs to the AfroAsian language family. The Afrasian language family includes six groups, or branches: Cushitic, Egyptian, Omotic, Chadic (Hausa), Semitic, and Amazight (Berber). Even though a correction over earlier names, AfroAsiatic is a misnomer because these languages are spoken nowhere in Asia unless carried there by religious conquest. These are actually NorthEast Afrikan languages native to Afrika from their southern origin in the Horn spreading westward to Nigeria and on to Morocco, eastward to Oman, and northward to Syria. It's funny that some linguists would speak of a proto-Semitic language as if it were ancestral to all Afro-Asian languages. Semitic was actually near the last to seperate from the phylum roughly 6000 years ago whereas Kushitic became distinct 10,000 years ago. This indicates that proto-Afro-Asiatic developed in the region of Ethiopia and Somalia and began splitting by at least 8000 BCE.
