Shalom Yair: Keep up the good work, just love all this history that you
send out.
It is so interesting. Shalom cita g.

2. Enemies of Brit-Am
Certain people said false things about Brit-Am, about Yair Davidiy,
and about Rabbi Avraham Feld. They said we said things we did not say
and that in fact are diametrically the opposite of what we believe.
This is probably inevitable under the
circumstances. Believe about us what we write to you
and beyond that do not believe anything without checking with us.

4. The USA and Englishness: Of interest
Subject: Anglo-Saxons in Early America

Here are two quotes of early Amercian politicians on American kinship
Anglo-Saxons. I find them both very interesting in thier own ways and
geographic and political context of both men is surely important.
"In 1776, Thomas Jefferson proposed that the seal for the newly
United States of America should represent 'The children of Isreal in
wilderness led by a cloud by day and a pillar of light by night; and on
other side, Hengest and Horsa, the Saxon chiefs from whom we claim the
of being descended.'"
p. 1 Nicholas Howe _Migration and Mythmaking in Anglo-Saxon England_
"Our old enemies, the British, and their American friends give us the
new Anglo-Saxons. Our name, blood, and lineage are American and not
Anglo-Saxon. It is true that most of the Americans are descendants of
Europeans, but the preponderance of our blood is not of the Anglo-Saxon
There are more of the descendents of the Irish and Germans in the
States than English. In fact, the American race at present is so
and improved that we are a stock of our own." p. 152
John Reynolds (1788-1865) _Pioneer History of Illinois_ 1852
Ranger during the War of 1812,
Third Governor of the State of Illinois (who led the Illinois militia
battle in the Black Hawk War...from the front of the column).
Status during the British wars was certainly a component in these
beliefs. As
far as I know, Thomas Jefferson was what we might call an 'idea man'
but I
don't think he ever fired a shot in a battle against any enemy. John
Reynolds, although a generation younger, had fought in two wars he
blamed on
the British, the War of 1812 and the Black Hawk War. (Black Hawk had
been a
British Native American ally.)
Their geographic contexts is another major difference. Jefferson lived
relatively cultured Virginia, while Reynolds lived on what was then the
western-most edge of the American frontier, where the border with first
France and later New Spain was just across the river. (Most of the
Reynolds refers to were not Irish Catholics but Irish protestants also
the Scotch-Irish.)
As far as Reynolds personal history, he says his own father Robert
was born and raised in Monohon Co. Ireland and his mother in the city
Dundalk. He says that his father was an admirerer of Jefferson but
Great Britain "with a ten-horse power", neither of which were uncommon
feelings in c. 1800. Although Reynolds education was not the same as
Jefferson, his father had been a state representative, and he was a
and eventually Governor at a critical time in the formation of the
Perhaps what is most intersting in the context to this list is that the
concept of "Anglo-Saxon" was being discussed at all in early America,
than being a "New England" or 'the English'. And also that the man who
our Declaration of Independence had a different view on the
than someone on the front line with a rifle. The Reynolds quote shows
some people in America, possibly as late as 1852, were trying to style
themselves/America as the "New Anglo-Saxons".

name great.
And you shall be a blessing.
"And I will bless they who bless you, and curse him who curses you.

The Principles of Brit-Am require:
1. Acceptance of Prophecy.
2. Self-Respect (no hatred of fellow Israelite groups, no antisemitism)
3. Acknowledgement of The Israelite Identity of many people amongst
Western Nations.
4. recognition of  "Captive Jews" meaning Israelite or Jewish
who lost their identity and emerged from amongst dominantly
peoples. The destiny of these "Captive Jews" is bound up with that of
Lost Ten Tribes even though
the Lost Ten Tribes retained some degree of communal cohesion, and they
