Ziggy Marley feels very close to Israel.

July 11, 2011

He’s_married_to_Orly, an Israeli woman, and they have three children: A girl named Judah Victoria, a boy called Gideon, and a baby – Abraham Selassie. “The history of our connection to the roots of Israel, to David, Solomon, goes way before I met my wife,” Marley says. “My father, my Rastafari culture, has a tight link to the Jewish culture. We have a strong connection from when I was a young boy and read the Bible, the Old Testament. “The Rastafari culture has a very strong connection to Haile Selassie, a descendant of King Solomon. So it is in our soul, this connection, and we have had it for a very long time.” Several months ago, Marley entered the world of comics with a comic book called “Marijuanaman”, a superhero who gets his powers from the green leaves. “The idea is to counterattack the negativity that society puts on the plant. The plant is very valuable to the world for medicine use, recreational use, industrial use, biofuel, fabric, making products from the plant that will help to stop deforestation. This plant is very important to the planet, very important, but we have neglected to use it.”  more via shalomlife.com
