*****What influence does that have with Rastafari's connection to Israelite doctrine? *****
If I may say, Moses/Akhenaton is the father of monotheism (as presented). It is the semites who promoted this God-head doctrine in order to strengthen their tribes AND to justify their nomadic, invasive, trespassing culture.
For the invasion and claiming of land to be justified, in contrast to the indigenous harmony/communion with the land, the semites had to promote masculine/linear thinking as supreme to justify their lifestyle.
The semites used male ego (and male outsidership to the mother-child relationship) to make dictators out of the otherwise 'guiding' leadership. They used a concept of a dictatorial masculine God, (eliminating the encompassing feminine God) to cause ones to think egotistically and linear instead of wholistically and circular.
This dictatorial input is proven by the tablets of external COMMANDMENTS (10) from a spooky authoritative God on a mountain in a burning bush compared to the SELF-DECLARATIONS (42) of the God within.
They are "ego-inflators"..."kingmakers". They have made/advised kings and influenced social/political doctrine throughout history.
Slavery comes to mind, be it Xtian/European (western semitic) slavery or Arab/Moslem (eastern semitic) slavery. Same faces/books/mindset/chosenism/female suppression behind the curtains.
"Semitism" (as I present it) is a mental state/worldview and not a reference to a particular group of people. It begins with the removal of any positive acknowledgment of the feminine essence/principle.
Thus the de-emphasis of "Shekinah" (amongst others).
