The Moorish Science Temple of America-1928 that represents the original Grand Body of 1928 we continue to stand as the vanguards of this Divine Movement in exposing the folly and foolishness of those who wish to imposter themselves as being REAL Moorish Americans. This is NOT!! the teachings nor practices of those who are Moorish American Moslems in being a REAL Active Member within a REAL Temple. So again we give you the insane straight from the twilight zone.
An Easton woman wants to be her own nation — and not pay taxes.
Through a serious of documents, Fabiola Is Ra El Bey declares herself an indigenous natural woman – Fabiola Is Ra El Bey of Aspetuck Quinnehtukqut Territory — and declares her land “free from encumbrances” and “forever exempt from levy.”
Which basically means free of taxes.
As the Daily Easton reported, it’s a bit complicated.
Town records show that Bey sold her house and land to ”the Moorish Holy Temple of Science/Free.” Then, for $21 in “minted U.S. silver coins,” the temple and Sundry Moorish Science Temple of America granted Bey the right to the “indigenous real property located on the Creator’s earth.”
Documents she filed with the town say she filed for sovereignty status with the federal government. But, she still uses U.S. money and documents because it’s convenient, the Daily Easton reports. They tried, but were unable to reach Bey.
What this will actually mean come time to send out property tax bills is not clear, but a Florida couple seceded in 2008, and that did not work out the way they planned. The state’s attorney general sued them and they lost, reports TampaBay.com.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have your own country? Easton resident Fabiola Is Ra El Bey wondered, and took it a step further. Fourteen steps further, to be exact.
Easton records indicate that Bey filed for sovereignty status with the federal government. It’s similar to what American Indians have – a tax-free, independent nation within U.S. jurisdiction.
How is that possible? It’s complicated, to say the least. Bey claimed her Moorish rights to basically secede from the country. Bey belongs to the Moorish Science Temple, a heterodox Islamic sect founded in 1913 by prophet Noble Drew Ali. In her application, Bey states that “being Moorish American, we have and possess the internationally recognized Rights to determine our own ‘Status of the State’…”
Her application reads like a fiction novel written by a gaggle of lawyers. She states that she uses American currency, bank accounts, a social security number, a drivers license and other everyday minutia “to avoid extreme inconvenience. … were there an alternative, I would be happy to use it.”
According to Easton records, Bey’s property is called “Is Ra El Bey of Aspetuck Quinnehtukqut Territory Fabiola.” (‘Quinnehtukqut’ being the etymological mother of ‘Connecticut,’ meaning ‘beside the long tidal river.’)
One Easton resident said that he thinks Bey’s plan is to avoid taxes. Bey’s house is reportedly under foreclosure, and she is also suing the collections law firm, Hunt Leibert Jacobson. Should she be granted sovereign status, she may be able to keep her home.
Perhaps this is America’s solution to home foreclosures – new countries for everyone. “I hope she gets away with it,” said an Easton man, who wished to go unnamed. “Let’s wait and see.”
Repeated attempts to contact Bey and Hunt Leibert Jacobson were unsuccessful
