This faker has posted this to continuously claim he is legit, now let's read what the historian answers to all his defense ..
1. Our original family name is El Chemor, (it has many transliterations: Shoummar, Shemer, Shamir, Chmr, etc.) and it comes from King Chemor Jablah of the Ghassanid Kingdom in the Levant. Some of the King’s sons sought refuge in today’s Lebanon and were known as Bani Chemor (or the children of King Chemor) THIS IS AN INTERESTING HYPOTHESIS, AND MIGHT BE TRUE, BUT DOCUMENTARY PROOF IS NEEDED. WHEN THE KING'S SON'S SOUGHT REFUGE, DID THEY PERHAPS ALSO GIVE UP THEIR CLAIM TO RULE (WAS THEIR CLAIM BASED ON TRIBAL AFFILIATION OR ON LAND OR ON GENEALOGY?). THE WEBSITE SUGGESTS THAT THE RULER OF THE FAMILY WAS SELECTED BY A COUNCIL. DID ANY COUNCIL MAKE A DECISION ABOUT THE MODERN CLAIMANT?
2. The family ruled in the Levant from 220 CE until 636 CE and several other realms ruling the Akoura region in Northern Lebanon from 1211 CE until 1633 CE and the region of Zgharta-Zawie from 1641 CE until 1747 CE but kept the titles until today. WAS THE TITLE OF SHEIKH USED, OR WAS IT PRINCE?
3. After the family was deposed, they were hunted and killed by the sheikhs from the Daher family who was placed by the ottomans in our place with all the land and properties. That’s the reason why many members of the family changed their last names after the deposition and many later migrated to the north and South America. Notably the Gharios family and the Hobeika family. WHY THEN IS THE CURRENT CLAIMANT IN A BETTER POSITION TO CLAIM HEADSHIP OF THE FAMILY RATHER THAN THESE OTHER BRANCHES? SINCE THE FAMILY WAS DEPOSED DID THEY NOT GIVE UP THEIR TITLES?
4. About 100 years ago, many members of the Gharios family, knowing that they belonged to the El Chemor family, started to publicly use the El Chemor last name again. POINT 2 STATES THE FAMILY (APPARENTLY ALL BRANCHES) KEPT THEIR TITLES, BUT POINT 4 STATES THAT THE GHARIOS FAMILY STARTED TO USE THEIR TRUE LAST NAME ABOUT A HUNDRED YEARS AGO. SUPPOSEDLY THE GHARIOS FAMILY DID NOT USE ANY TITLE DURING THIS TIME.
5. Technically, there are two types of titles: Royal and Noble. Royal titles are the sovereign or semi-sovereign ones and noble are bestowed by a higher (sovereign or semi-sovereign) authority. DOCUMENTARY SOURCES ARE NEEDED TO DETERMINE THE NATURE OF CLAIMED TITLES.
6. In Lebanon, the majority of the sheikh titles are noble, not royal, since they were bestowed by princes after the Ottoman invasion of 1517 CE IT SEEMS QUITE POSSIBLE THAT THE OTTOMANS COULD AWARD TITLES TO FAMILIES THAT CAN CLAIM NOBLE OR EVEN ROYAL ANCESTRY. THE FACT THAT SOMEONE CLAIMS A TITLE BORNE BY THE FAMILY IN THE LAST SEVERAL CENTURIES MIGHT NOT HAVE A BEARING ON THE VALIDITY OF A TITLE FROM MANY CENTURIES BEFORE THAT.
7. The El Chemor titles are royal like the Arab counterparts in the gulf, for example, since weren’t bestowed by any higher authority and they came from the acknowledgment of the Royal decent from King Chemor Jablah. Other undeniable evidence is the fact that it’s documented that the family ruled, at least, from 1211 CE meaning, 306 years before the Ottoman invasion! THE UAE IS MADE UP OF SEVEN EMIRATES WHICH ARE RULED BY A SUPREME COUNCIL. WHILE THE RULER OF AN EMIRATE IS ROYAL, THEY ALSO EXERCISE THEIR FUNCTIONS IN AN INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNIZED LEGAL FRAMEWORK. I HAVE SEEN NOTHING ON THE WEBSITE TO SUGGEST THAT ANY OF THE EMIRATES HAS RECOGNIZED THE EL CHEMOR TITLES AS ROYAL. THE FAMILY DOES NOT HAVE ANY LEGAL BASIS FOR EXERCISING ANY ROYAL PREROGATIVES IN LEBANON EITHER.
8. The El Chemor Sheikhdom survived to 3 different invasions: the establishment of the County of Tripoli, vassals of the kingdom of Jerusalem (until 1289 CE), the Mameluk Sultanate (1289 CE until 1517 CE) and the Ottoman Empire from 1517 CE until the deposition in 1747 CE. IF IT SURVIVED IT WOULD HAVE SURVIVED ALL THOSE EVENTS.
9. The El Chemor titles were NOT bestowed by any of those invading powers being therefore sovereign and ROYAL. The Royal Ghassanid titles are part of the family patrimony as children of King Chemor Jablah. Also important to mention, the family NEVER stopped using the titles until the present day. IS THERE DOCUMENTARY EVIDENCE FOR CONTINUAL USE?
