Ksar of Draa – Mysterious Ancient Fortress in the middle of Desert

Published

on

This tower remains a historical mystery. Built in the middle of an ocean of sand dunes of the Sahara Desert, in the middle of nowhere, Ksar of Draa never revealed her secrets. It is located about fifty kilometers from the city of Timimun.

In what century or year was it built? How was it built? From who? And why?

No confirmed answers, only vague speculation. Even in the ancient writings of the indigenous peoples of the region, there are no historical references to this fortress.

The Draa ksar rises majestically in the middle of an ocean of dunes. It has a characteristic circular shape, stands out in the middle of the desert and its history has been lost over the centuries.

Visiting this ksar is not an easy task without the help of expert guides. However, as you can imagine, once reached, its view and exploration of its environments must be an indescribable experience.

Not even the locals are able to provide information on this very particular structure, the only news related to it is that for a certain period of time it was occupied by the Jews of the Timimoun region.

But in what precise period? What use did they make of it? Was it really a fortified castle or could it be a military post or even a prison? Or is it a caravanserai?

Unfortunately, what remains of its structure is not very helpful in understanding its original function. A circular wall, about two meters high, surrounds the ksar towards the outside.

This is also a circular one, consisting of a double wall, the external one in stones bound with clay and the internal one in clay only. It has a single access point to the north, and a series of rooms on three levels develop between the two walls.

The absence of exposed stairs allows us to hypothesize that there were internal ones that allowed access to the various floors. A further peculiarity lies in the fact that there are no communicating rooms and not even any windows facing outwards.

To date the function of this building remains a real mystery. Its particularity obviously led to the formulation of the most disparate hypotheses, but to the spread of singular legends linked to this very special place.

Among the most recent is that of an American team (of scholars?) Who arrived in Timimoun in the 1980s. This recruited the best guides in the region, gathered supplies and entered the Tinerkourk Erg. After crossing the sea of ​​dunes, the expedition reached the mysterious building.

The Americans asked the guides to leave them alone and pick them up after a week. Nobody knows what they looked for in the ksar or even what they eventually found inside.

CNN Anchor Claims Dangerous Filthy Slums in America Are ‘Vibrant Expressions of Democracy’

Published

CNN host Fareed Zakaria aired an astonishing rant this past
weekend arguing that major US cities are filthy and dangerous because of
“democracy,” and that makes them more “vibrant.”

Zakaria was attempting to provide a counter argument to Tucker
Carlson’s recent report that Russia’s subways are nicer than America’s.

CNN host Fareed Zakaria asserts that democracy goes hand in hand with living in a complete shit hole, and argues dirtier and chaotic cities are more ‘vibrant’ than clean cities which are usually run by ‘authoritarians’. Report: https://t.co/1Pa2QGS8gL pic.twitter.com/tKKZW2PRRJ

Modernity.news reports: “American cities are expressions of democracy,” Zakaria asserted, claiming they are “places where people have to negotiate differences and find ways to live together, that makes them messier and dirtier and sometimes chaotic.”

He then argued “perhaps that is what has made these cities so vibrant and innovative, and why they have been at the forefront in making America the country that leads the world in economics, technology, culture and power.”

Is rampant crime, homelessness, and drug use part of said vibrancy?

Fact check. American cities were not shit holes when the country emerged as the envy of the world. 

Zakaria continued, “Carlson speaks enviously of cities like Tokyo, Singapore, Abu Dhabi and Dubai, and they are indeed wonderful in their own distinctive ways. But what’s striking about all of them is that they are somewhat tame and subdued. The product of authoritarian governments or conformist culture, or both. American cities are different.”

He appears to be seriously claiming that you cannot  have a clean and safe city without some kind of evil dictatorship overseeing it.

Zakaria continued “Carlson put forward a bizarre hodgepodge of assertions he thought the architecture, food and service in Moscow was better than in any American city. Really? Moscow?”

“Outside of a small historic center, it is filled with drab Soviet era concrete buildings. And while the food in Moscow can be quite good…Better than New York or San Francisco? You need to get out more” Zakaria concluded.

Has he been to San Francisco lately?
