|Exile of Israelites to the West by Sea.|
Duration: 9.33 minutes
The Ten Tribes of Israel were exiled by the Assyrians. A portion were taken directly to the west in ships manned by Phoenicians and Minoans (Philistines) in Assyrian Service. Yair Davidiy of the Brit-Am Ten Tribes Movement describes how this event is referred to in Scripture.
Exile of the Israelites by Way of the Sea had been referred to
elsewhere in the Bible.
The Philistines of Gaza (Amos 1:6) will be punished for taking Israelite captives and turning them over to Edom. The same applies to the inhabitants of Ashdod, Ashkelon, and Ekron and the rest of the Philistines (Amos 1:6) and the people of Tyre who were once in a brotherly alliance with Israel (Amos 1:9). Historically we say that the Philistines and Phoenicians (Tyre) used their ships to transport Israelite captives over the sea westward to Spain, Portugal, the British Isles, Gaul, and Scandinavia.
Phoenician and Philistine ships working for the Assyrians were instrumental in the exile of a portion of the Israelites.
Phoenician Ships were the ships of Tyre that sailed to Tarshish in Spain.
Amos (1:9) berates Tyre for assisting the Assyrians in exiling Israelites and turning them over to Edom.
Hosea (9:13) describes the children of Ephraim taking their children out to to the slaughter like as was the practice with Tyre.
Amongst the Phoenicians of Tyre and Carthage child sacrifice was practised. Nowadays we have abortion, pornography, and child-abuse.
Isaiah (23:1-12) described the destruction of Tyre and its inhabitants fleeing overseas, at first to Cyprus (Kittim, Isiah 23:12) and after that to Tarshish in Spain (Isaiah 23:6).
Previously Tyre had traded with Tarshish silver, iron, tin, and lead (Ezekiel 27:12) which minerals had been obtained from the Biritish Isles.
Philistine Ships were the Minoan ships of Gaza.
Amos berates Tyre for assisting the Assyrians in exiling Israelites and turning them over to Edom.
Amos (1:6) also condemned the Philistines of Gaza Ashdod, Ashkelon, and Ekron and the rest of the Philistines for assisting the Assyrians in exiling Israelites and turning them over to Edom.
The Philistines were part of so-called Minoan and Mycenean civilizations. The distinction between Minoan and later Mycenean Greek Civilization may not as clear-cut as often assumed.
The Minoans are known from Crete but they were also to be found elsewhere including on the coasts of Syria and amongst the Philistines. The Philistine city of Gaza in Ancient Times was referred to as Minoa. This was a well-developed civilization with many acheivements. Their trading ativities reached to the west and included the gold production of Ireland.
Archaeologists have discovered the remains of Minoan settlement in North Germany by the border with Denmark.
Minoan finds in "Edomsharde" [Edom's District']. There may be a prosaic reason as to why the area in question still bears the name "Edom". Nevertheless it is interesting in light of the fact that the Philistines were condemned by Amos for turning the Exiles over to Edom!
Area spoken of: Northern Schleswig (North Friesland just south of Denmark) in Germany in region of Pellworm Island.
Amos (1:6) had mentioned the Exiles being delivered to Edom!
Archaeological Evidence for the period in question shows settlement in Scandinavia (Bronze Age Period) of people whose culture borrowed from the Phoenicians, Canaanites, Egyptians, Hittites, Minoans, Mycenean Greeks, and other groups from the Middle East.
These were Israelites.
The same applies to Britain and Ireland.
In addition a group who were not Phoenicians but were under Phoenician influences settled in southern Spain, moved later to Northwest Spain, and from there moved to Britain and Ireland.
These too were Israelites.
