Sepharad

The name Sepharad or Sephardi seems to mean “veiled” & “separated” in Semitic. Officially, it’s an unknown Biblical location with unknown etymology. But it maps perfectly to Semitic שפרד š-prd she-parad, which is pronounced like English “separate” and even means “separate”. It’s also a rare Persian word for a “veil”, likely derived from “separator”. Spelling variants include prd / prt / prṣ / prṭ, all meaning “separate”. The last one also means “separating into units” in the sense of “changing money”, so we have our bankster spooks again!

I have no idea why the spooks officially split themselves into Ashkenazi “Jews” and Sephardi “Jews”. This may simply be yet another fake division, to conceal the fact that the world’s aristocracy has always been one big family. Or it may have been an actual division for some time. The names give no clue here, they both mean “hidden” & “bankers”, so they’re likely all just hidden bankers.

The name Se-Pharad may also be an explanation for the leo-pard, or parder, as an aristocratic symbol. The cat’s name is derived from Semitic lavi-bard for “spotted lion”.
