"The Celts"

I have noticed, as will many others, that you have placed an article on your website about faery folklore in Wales. This I find interesting. For three years now my words have been advertised on a website by "Mystic Realms" about the island that was once called "Caer Sidi" in Wales. The word Caer, as you know indicates a military fortress, and the word Sidi is still in use in North Africa because it comes from the ancient Indo-European Sanskrit language of North Africa. The word "Sidi" means Saint  (or spiritually perfect person if the translation is taken literally) in pre-historic Gael indo-European and in Arabic in the 21st century. The whole place name means the fortress of the Saint. It indicates a North African migrant military settlement close to the Welsh Coast, prior to the Roman invasions. As you will be aware North African Egyptian Druids (the word Druid comes from two Indo-Sanskrit words that mean the  "Oak -tree" and  "knowledge-or to know" combined into one new  African descendant word) were slaughtered by the Romans at the final battle of Anglesey Island. Those who survived were those who fled to Silurian Scotland before the Roman genocide of such peoples. The old Egyptian word "Druid" is made up of the two Indo words "Dru" and Wid (also Vid). The language that these words comes from is still spoken in Asia.

The folklore tales of the Faeries are wonderful for the young. The word Faery however comes from ferrer, comes from ferry, comes from Phaery, comes from Pharaoh. The ones who escaped Egyptian Civil war, and certain death, after Moses from the Egyptian Golden Era by migrating.


I am part of an International Celtic Culture. Through mixing with people, from other countries, I have become aware of the fact that many archaic words, in the west, still have a meaning in ex-Celtic Communities elsewhere in the world. There is a sadness within rural quarters of that which is now England and used to be Celtic Albion amongst ex-Stewart Scottish Celtic families. Once the nation of  castles, turrets, towers and tenements, of the Keltoi, before the invasions from Germanic Schleswig, and Jutland, that finally maybe destroyed Celtic Culture after surviving the Roman Empire. Once the whole of the British Isles was a set of Kingdoms, of three, called Albion: and the Welsh, Kernow of the West Country, Manx, and Alba Scottish are the original British. Robert Burns, of Scotland, wrote a poem about this.


I feel I should point out the situation in other countries at present:- Recently a group of Celtic Northern French Breton speakers  were granted live time on French National Television to present their case for a Celtic Breton language in France. The presenter, of a National French Television Company, allowed them to speak for a few minutes. She then burst into laughter stating  "Is that a language or do you just milk your cows with it?" This is cultural racism!"


For Celtic Culture to survive it must become international. Otherwise we will die and become servants, and second class citizens, to the others only. It is acceptable for all Celtic regions to have a secondary individual Celtic language and a first language. It is not, however, acceptable for such countries to consider themselves as being separate from International Celtic Culture if they wish to survive however. There is too much racism for this to be possible.
