In "History Begins at Sumer" the origins of the Sumerian people are associated with a motif in their art. The motif has what appear to be mountains about a lake or mountains in the ocean as the place the Sumerians may have come from.
Sumerian Language has no relation to any known catagory or family of languages. Sumerian language is an isolate.
The term 'Sumerian' applies to speakers of the Sumerian language. The Sumerian language is generally regarded as a language isolate in linguistics because it belongs to no known language family; Akkadian belongs to the Afro-Asiatic languages.
Sumeru (Sankrit) is a name from Buddhist Cosmology

That guy is part of the Fulford camp. All the info I've read about him link back to Fulford. If it were real, I think, somebody else would be talking about it too. I believe we would see a lot more than the usual standard operating procedure from the Fulford think tank.
I'm not saying Fulford is 100% fake but many people he has attempted to align himself with have been proven to be wrong. He apparently has sources of some kind with real info once in a while. Maybe his Kung Fu overlord but I don't know if that's been debunked yet or not...
I'm going to need more than Fulford's word to believe anything from this guy. Anything can be faked, except maybe some of the crystal skulls.edit on 3-4-2012 by Noncents because: Typo

A retired U.S. General once predicted that Japan will sever ties with the USA and work with one of it's adversaries. Together, they will form an alliance. Hmmm.
