    1. I went to Lake Forest College, Lake Forest, Illinois with Hashem El Sanussi. At the time we were students, Hashem had a wife, Rita and also a child. If Hashem is still around, I’d love to hear from him. 312-487-0948

  1. Prince Mahdi picture is not the right picture
    This picture is Kenneth Daryl Brown who interviewed prince Mahdi 2008
    would you please make change
    Regards

  2. I went to ACS school with Prince Senussi’s two daughters in Benghazi Libya in 1967-1969.
    I would like to know how to get in touch.
    i was afraid to get in touch during the Khadaffi’s era for their safty.

  3. I remember when i was growing up in Libya.
    There is a white prince that lived in Tripoli and a Black prince lived in Benghazi.
    King Idris lived in Tobrook most of the time.
    I remebered my Senussi friends told me there are black because some of their ancestor is from Sudan.

    1. Hi I know this is a late reply by like years. …but my mother was over there and was rescued off the top of an embassy when Muslims attacked it in 60s….my grandfather Thurman Larson was King idris personal surgeon….and everything you said about the black and white prince is true. My mother uses to go water skiing with the black prince and she still has 5 gold bracelets he gave her.
      I’d love to hear what you remember…my mothers 71 now and I’m trying to get as much info as I can… And I can’t find anything about the embassy attack either

  4. No! No! No! Mr. Idris al Senussi and his younger brother, Mr. Mahdi al Senussi are self-styled “His Royal Highnesses.” They are very distant cousins of Crown Prince Mohammed al Senussi, heir to the Libyan throne. Idris al Senussi was exposed as a fraud and impostor after a trial at the Old Bailey in London in 1995. At that time, a disclaimer against these self-styled “princes” was issued by both the Crown Prince, as well as out of Kensington Palace on behalf of Prince Michael of Kent, with whom Idris had falsely claimed a friendship. Buyer beware!!! There are literally hundreds of Senussis.

  5. To stella,,
    About the ACS school is it the one at el fuehat, Benghazi?
    Do you remember Suzanna el Senussi?
    I can give you her e mail in Benghazi if you like.

  14. Greetings Your HRH Maadwi el(not al) Sennussi,
    I am submitting pieces to Al arham newspaper. You may get my comments from here.
    I know it’s been 20 years. And my last name is always listed. So you alway knew
    how to reach me. My Mother saw how she was incorrect with you on the phone. I was
    in California at the time. I never gave up on you since Egypt. And now I don’t want to know.
    I took a real age test and my face is 45 based on my supplements which do cost.
    I plan to apply to work at Cairo Radio and TV which asked me to work there when
    I had to go back to the US for my Grandmother got ill. I was on the radio there and also
    in Paris. My French is weak now but I am giving myself until Spring to get my music and
    languages together. Or maybe I’ll go for BBC.
    I was given a classical education when I was at boarding school. Do what you know!!!
    I even have a musical invention. I must add that I was given a museum before the
    owner died. So I got a board together for museum education. But most important is you!!!
    I do a English handbell performance with the Riverside Ringers Choir monthly.
    Lastlhy my name has been hurt because there is an evil woman in my life who does
    photographic resolution to creat false images. She will approach you for you are
    valuable. She has phonied up my resume et. al. Don’t believe but watch Believe which
    is the Barack Obama story. Love always Cassandra M. (Meroe, Mary, Maadwa) Wimbs

  15. GReeetings,

    Change with non-violence. I am local head delegate for National Dance Week. We

    was detailed in the computer catalogue section.
    Maahdi I hope you find these exhibit pieces culturally pleasing.

  16. Greetings Mahdi el Sennussi,
    The English handbell festival was magnificate. Regretful that you were not able to
    make it. Next is National dance Week in which artists are honored who work to
    preserve the Egyptian dance culture. Contact me if you want to be updated on
    happennings. Remember that I thought you should join a fraternity. I am in a sorority.
    And also I wanted you to join a chamber of commerce.

  17. Mr. El Sennussi,
    I would like to discuss with you supporting my Um Kalthum project.
    Cassandra M. Wimbs

    1. Ms. Wimbs,
      I am saddened to report that my beloved brother, Mahdi El-Senussi has passed away in end of May. It is reported that he died of a heart attack.

        1. So is this the Madhi el Senussi who once lived in Connecticut?. This hurts
          me but we all have to go sometime. He went before I got a chance to tell him
          how much I wanted to see him.
          Cassandra Madwa Wimbs

  18. Om Kalsoum
    Many dancers in Egypt dance to her music. Ms. Kalsoum gave the legend Soheir Zaki
    permission to dance to her songs. I came across the oriental dance sites by accident.
    I saw FiFi Abdou dance to Kalthoum’s Lesa Fakir (Do you remember) in a video. That’s
    when I switched to the video with Kalsoum actually singing Lesa Fakir. What a treat!!!
    Then I turned to Soheir Zaki performing lesa Fakir. Readers here treat yourselves to
    the song, the singer and the dancers to the song. I also recommend Awl Leila and
    Enti Om (You are my life). That was the beginning of me writing Om Kalsoumisms here.
    I dedicate these words to the transitioned Mahdi el Senussi.

  19. The El Sennussi Clan,
    You are particulary welcomed to attend the Fathers’ Day Handbell concert at
    Riverside Church at 4pm. Location is 490 Riverside Drive near 120th St and near
    Columbia Univ. We must remember Madhi.

  20. Om Kalthoum
    Ente Omri may have been sung in Paris on tour. Thank you for informing me of
    Madhi el Senussi’s departure. Ente Omri is dedicated to his memory. He was a son of
    Libya.

  21. Om Kalsoum
    was an actress before she mastered concert classical music
    Song for the day. In terms of who died. Was it an El Senussi or Al Sennussi.
    I am having a men’s show and I would like a muslim talk about lifestyle.
