HPB and the Hermetic Brotherhood of Luxor

A recently issued book, Surrendering Islam: The subversion of Muslim politics throughout history until the present day by David Livingstone and Sahib Mustaqim Bleher, tries to link HPB to the shadowy occult underworld of her time.

James Sanua was born in Cairo to a well-connected Italian Jewish family of Sephardic origin, who was wholeheartedly devoted to the teachings of Mazzini. Sanua was also responsible for establishing the foundation of the modern Egyptian theater, a forerunner to its well-known film industry. Both Sanua and his girlfriend, Lydia Pashkov, were also friends and travelling companions of Helena P. Blavatsky, who in 1856, Mazzini had initiated into the Carbonari.

There is an online segment from it on the Hermetic Brotherhood of Luxor that brings together Yarker, Pascal Beverly Randolph, HPB, and Jamal Ud Din al Afghani, which can be seen here.
