Blessed Love to One and all,
Give thanks for life and the Mighty life keeper the Lord of the Sabbath, Holy Emmanuel I Selassie I Jah Rastafari. This letter serves as an apology to the Honourable Priest Shanty Tafari Edwards and to the Ethiopia Africa Black International Congress, at 10 Miles Bull Bay, Jamaica, for my indiscretions in placing certain sensitive information on the internet.
The said information was published on the web site boboshanty.org and was done so without the prior knowledge or permission of the leader of the camp in Tunapuna, Honourable Priest Shanty. In so doing, I breached protocol and leaned on my own understanding. In an over zealous plan to unveil truth I may have inadvertently damaged the reputation of the Congress, and the honourable name of His Majesty, Priest Shanty. It must be noted in all fairness that I was younger and less humble then and only seeking to find answers as a young priest in a confusing time within the fraternity. Remember not the sins of my youth nor my transgressions and forgive all my sins. By mercy and truth iniquity is purged. If Thou, O Lord, shouldest mark iniquities O Lord, who shall stand. Give thanks unto the Lord for He is good, and Jah mercy endureth forever. Most High Selassie I Jah Rastafari.
For any damages to the reputation of the Congress at Bull Bay, and to that of Honourable Priest Shanty Tafari Edwards, I humbly apologise, and am doing all in my power to alleviate the situation.
Priest Christman Israel
