The true definition and history of the word Africa

The word Africa is derived from the Arabic word given to the Ottoman Arab so-called slave traders, as “Al Furaqa” meaning “The Separation”. The root word “Al Furaqa” is “Faraqa” meaning “to part, to separate.” Originally “Africa” was written as “Afriyqaa”, now it is written as “Afriyqiyah” by Arabs.

Africa as a name for various parts of the modern day continent has been used since well before the time of Caesar.

The Ottoman Empire was founded in 1293 CE (I wouldn't be too surprised if you needed to be told that that was well after the time of Caesar). It was founded and ruled by Turks, not Arabs.

Epic fail.

What is in a name? A lot is in a name. Do we name people and things according to their characteristics, or do people's and things' characteristics come from what we name them?
Europe - the continent named from the goddess Europa - from the Greek meaning "open eyed" meaning open minded/intelligent/open to learning new things.
The Semites - from the word "Shem" meaning prosperity, renown.
And so it is important to know the etymology of this word Africa, a foreign word which has given no blessings to a continent rich in both spiritual and natural resources.

THE NAME OF AFRICA IS NOT ACCEPTED, BECAUSE OF ITS MEANING WHY SHOULD MY PEOPLE BE CALLED "SEPERATION" BECAUSE TECHNICALLY OUR ETHNICITY RACE IS NOT OUR CITIZENSHIP OF OUR COUNTRY IF ANY MEANS SO IF POSSIBLE AND NOW IS I RATHER BE CALLED ALKEBULAN, BECAUSE IS MEANS 1.GARDEN OF EDEN 2.MOTHER LAND, EDEN MEANS PARADISE, AND THAT IS NOW TODAY SO CALLED AFRICA WHICH HODLS EVERY RESOURCE AND HAVE THE MOST VALUBLE AND IS THE RICHES COTINENT ON EARTH WICH IS WHAT MAKES IT. THE WORD AFRICA IS RACIST, THE ARABIANS ENSLAVED THE "SO-CALLED AFRICAN" CONVERSTING THEM INTO ISLAM A FALSE RELIGION. NOW THE ARABIAN SLAVE TRADE PRIMARILY HARVESTED THE WOMEN OF "EAST AFRICA" TO SERVE AS DOMESTIC SLAVES, WET NANNIES AND SEX-SLAVES IN THE INFAMOUS HAREMS, THIS TRADE TRICKLED OVER THE WORLD. NOW IF YOU LOOK AT IT THE WORD SO CALLED "AFRICA" THAT USED TO BE CALL PARDISE IS NOW CALLED "SEPERATION", THE ARABIANS ARE MIXING THERE IDOLS WITHIN A RELIGION ALSO FALSE DOCTRINE STIRRING CONFUSSION ("SEPERATING THEM FROM THERE GOD HAD NOT GOD PUNNISH ISRAEL FOR THERE FALL?") THIS IS "SEPERATION" FROM GOD, THE GOD OF ISRAEL. 2 KINGS 21:12,Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Behold, I am bringing such evil upon Jerusalem and Judah, that whosoever heareth of it, both his ears shall tingle. WHICH IS THE COURSE UPON THEM BECAUSE THEY HAVE FALLEN SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD. JERMIAH 21:4, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel; Behold, I will turn back the weapons of war that are in your hands, wherewith ye fight against the king of Babylon, and against the Chaldeans, which besiege you without the walls, and I will assemble them into the midst of this city.

Africa
Latin Africa (terra) "African land, Libya, the Carthaginian territory," fem. of Africus, from Afer "an African." Originally only in reference to the region around modern Tunisia, it gradually was extended to the whole continent. Derivation from Arabic afar "dust, earth" is tempting, but the early date seems to argue against it. The Middle English word was Affrike.
