AZL flag holder TransparentRobert Nesta “Bob” Marley, OM (6th February 1945 – 11th May 1981) was a black Jewish reggae singer, songwriter, musician, and guitarist born in Jamaica. Marley was born on the farm of his maternal grandfather in Nine Mile, Saint Ann Parish, Jamaica, to Norval Sinclair Marley (1885–1955) and Cedella Booker an Afro-Jamaican (1926–2008). Norval Marley was born in Britain and his family had Jewish origins. Starting out in 1963 with the group The Wailers Marley pursued a solo career after the Wailers disbanded in 1974 and his relocation to England. On 3rd December 1976, two days before “Smile Jamaica”, a support rally for the Jamaican Prime Minister Michael Manley who was consistently accused of being communist or attempting to introduce ‘communism‘ Marley, his wife, and manager Don Taylor were shot inside Marley’s home. Nonetheless, the concert proceeded, and an injured Marley a great supporter of Prime Minister Manley performed as scheduled. The album which established Marley into the international consciousness in 1977 with its title track Exodus pays a significant overture to his tribal brethren. Containing tracks like ‘One Love’ with various lyrics extolling the ‘virtues’ of miscegenation, globalisation, remonstrating for a ‘victimised’ people and sung by a coloured it was elegant propaganda for the Jewish Zionist agenda. Marley also began to use cannabis when he converted to ‘Rastafari’ in 1966. He considered cannabis a healing herb, a “sacrament”, and an “aid to medication”. He also supported the legalization of the drug. Nevertheless, in July 1977, Marley was found to have a type of malignant melanoma under the nail of a toe. He died of cancer on 11th May 1981.
