I was amazed to read that the Bibles claim that the land belongs to Israel could be considered counter productive! After 60 years of miracles that had placed Israel squarely in possession of her land and after judgement after judgement against those who are seeking to separate her from her land,(secret negotiations are going on right now on how much more land Israel must give up, yet they are are the very negotiations which will determine how bad Gustov will be.) The Word of the Almighty trumps all.

Brit-Am Reply:
The Bible does not just "claim" that the land belongs to Israel.
The Bible says it.
The Bible affirms it.
There are however certain people that have a misconception of the Bible. They believe that the Bible says all kinds of things that it does not.
They also believe that the Bible has been proved wrong and it has not.
In some circles overseas, in Europe, in academia, etc,  the Bible is associated with negativity.
On the whole when a Bible-believer who is also a supporter of Israel encounters such people the reaction may be hostile and they may not be worth talking to. It also happens however that they may be open to limited discussion.
They need re-education but if 5 minutes is all one has, one takes what there is.
The same thing in every day life.
For example,
If one has to go to court for whatsoever reason and believes one is in the right then you will try to show why the law is on your side.
If you start reciting the Biblical Book of Proverbs (even with Brit-Am Commentary) chances are the judge will not let you go on.

Similarly,
Brit-Am bases its beliefs on the Bible and Bible Proofs.

Nevertheless we also engage in genuine research of the secular sciences alongside our Biblical Studies.
This helps set our Biblical findings in the correct framework and adds to our appreciation of them.
We try from time to time to spread the Brit-Am message and even though the Bible is our primary justification we may choose for tactical reasons with certain audiences to begin our approach with quotes from secular sources.




2. Minoans (Crete-Philistines) in Germany

Finds attributed to Peter Duerr in North Friesland in 1992.

Could not understand the text, seemed to be claimed that Minoans were in Northwest Germany based on pottery finds and Linear-A script.
We have mentioned similar finds previously.

#1. Philistines, Crete, Israelites, and Northern Europe
Minoans are associated with Crete but also with the Philistines.
Gaza was also know as Minoa.
