Brit-Am Now no.1893
Ten out of the Twelve Tribes of Israel were exiled and lost their identity. Their descendants are now to be found amongst Western Peoples. They are the Lost Ten Tribes. This is proven from the Bible, Talmud, and Rabbinical Sources as well as from Secular Studies in Ancient History, Archaeology, Mythology, Linguistics, and related fields.In the notes below we bring news, queries, and updates related to these issues.

Details on How To Contribute to Brit-Am
|Contents by Subject||
Contents in Alphabetical Order
We write to request your financial support for Brit-Am/Hebrew Nations, the Movement we formally founded in 1995 (though it had actually begun before then) to prove and spread knowledge of the Israelite Ancestry of Peoples in the West and to Promote Reconciliation between them and the Jews of Judah.
U.S. and U.K. interests in the Middle East and the world should be those of Israelite Nations in general.
The State of Israel should be encouraged to settle Jews wherever possible in the Land of Israel.
All Israelite Nations should be encouraged to return to Biblical Values. Learning the Bible needs to be encouraged.
These aims are not just desirable goals but vital ones. Our survival could depend upon them. Times have changed. There may not be that much time left. This knowledge needs to be made known and the practical applications we recommend need to be adopted.
Brit-Am/Hebrew Nations does what it can. Relatively speaking with what we have we often merit to do much.
We however are the same as everybody else; we need to function and this requires funding.
We believe that the work of Brit-Am/Hebrew Nations is in accordance with Divine Will.
Whosoever aids us will be blessed.
Providence has so decided that we are in need of your contributions.
God be with you,
2. Google Gaggle Continues. No
Explanation has been received.
Our YouTube video clip on the subject of Sinim is on the second page of Yahoo Search Results.
For Google under the entry Sinim we are not on the first page, nor on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, or 5th and probably not anywhere else!
The figures for Yahoo are probably repeated by all the other Search Engines. Only Google ignores us but Google accounts for ca. 80% of the traffic.
It appears that the Google blacklisting of Brit-Am may extend beyond our web-site and be directed at Brit-Am in general.
A recent incident involving Brit-Am and Google has led us to suspect homosexual activists in Google to be behind the anti-Brit-Am attitude.
3. Brit-Am Statistics. New Revelations.
Lies, damned lies, and statistics
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Lies, damned lies, and statistics" - Benjamin Disraeli.
Mark Twain popularized the saying in "Chapters from My Autobiography", published in the North American Review in 1906. "Figures often beguile me," he wrote, "particularly when I have the arranging of them myself; in which case the remark attributed to Disraeli would often apply with justice and force: 'There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.'"
About 1500 (less than had been previously supposed) receive a copy ofd
each Brit-Am message sent out by e-mail.
(b) Visits to our web-site and other characteristics.
Previously we quoted statistics from the Numerator supplied by our Server.
This would show about 1500 visits per day.
For the month of May 2012 it showed a total of 43,014 visits and 525107 hits.
Recent clarification has shown that these figures are MISLEADING, in part.
They included those who returned several times per day who were numbered as different visitors and it also included visits from Crawlers of Search Engines and other monitors.
When we spoke to our Server Technical representatives we were advised in effect to ignore the total figures but concentrate on relative tendencies.
The tendencies indicate a plunge of ca. 20% possibly as a result of the Google Gaggle.
We were also advised to accept figures supplied by Google Webmaster Tools and Google Analytic.
Google Analytic shows that in the period May 18-June 17 2012, our site received 1,355 different visitors.
[We think this is too low, but who knows?]
56% of our visitors are new ones.
43 % are returning visitors.
Average pages per visit 1.54.
56% of our visitors are from the USA, 9% from Israel, 7% from the UK, 4% from Canada, 3% from Australia, 2% from the Netherlands.
After that came Czech Republic, Norway, South Africa, Switzerland.
Within the USA we had 154 visits from California, 139 from Texas,
New York 57
North Carolina 54
Anyone see a pattern here?
(c) Brit-Am YouTube Viewing.
YouTube is also now owned in effect by Google.
We entered this YouTube business somewhat haphazardly and without putting much hopes in it.
Nevertheless if the statistics are correct it may show promise.
May 21, 2012 - Jun 19, 2012 showed 1,485 views.

The Number of YouTube Viewers is higher than visitors to the Web Site.
[I think the number given by Google for visitors to the web site is too low.]
Number of YouTube Viewers also shows a high proportion from the UK which is in second place. This is heartening since in the past we thought it was very low.
70% of the viewers from the USA are over 45 years old.
83% of the viewers from the Israel are over 45 years old.
In the UK they are somewhat younger but still overwhelmingly more than 35 years old.
In the USA, Israel, and New Zealand the majority are males.
In the UK it is ca. half male, half female.
In Belgium all 19 viewers were female and all 13 to 17 years old [Maybe it was the same young girl who came back 19 times?
We have ca. 64 clips, so she looked at 19 of them. I hope it did not affect her homework!]
20% viewed the clips through embedded clips, possibly all our own britam.org URLs.
4. Requests to Lower Volume of Background Music on YouTube Clips.
Yair, i am so blessed listening to your teachings. Thank you. I have read your books on the lost tribes of Israel...profound!. May i make a suggestion on the u tube, the music is very nice, and i would love to really hear what you're teaching with a little more subtle 'background' . just a suggestion..shalom

Thanks. Someone else said the same. In future I shall turn it down a little more.
Observations like you just made alert as to when improvement is needed.
Without this we probably would never have known.
God bless you
5. Jackie Bourg: Descendants of Jews
from Majorca Amongst French Canadians.
Shalom Yair Davidiy,
You have listed that France contained the Tribe of Reuben.
I have a valid question for you:
1) "why do you keep refusing to believe that we, the French Canadians (originally from Southern France) were originally from Spain?
2) Where do you suspect the Jews mentioned in Obadiah disappeared to?
3) Why do you keep ignoring my ancestors who originally came from Spain and into France during the Inquisition? After all, our surnames are all translated into Jewish and moreover, we have the J2 Haplo type as researched with www.FamilyTree.com/dna
~ I have my maternal ancestral research....and we are from Majorca Spain....
Why do you suppose we ended up in Southern France during the Inquisition.
With all due respect ..., I would ask you to remove your dark glasses and smell the smoking gun, that YES, we are lost Jews from Spain. We are Levites, whether you like it or not. Pls forgive me for sounding this way, but I am very fed up that NOBODY wants to look into our Jewish heritage. You once told me that "it was so long ago and that we had mixed with Gentiles that we surely lost our heritage".
Judaism is very much alive in me...and I arduously fight the good fight of Faith that we are indeed GOD's Chosen people.
To my knowledge, your book on the Lost Tribes is not complete without us, the French Jews of "Spain".

Re: Wahhabi Woes
All I need to know about Islam I learned on 911.
7. Esther: (a) Query about the Lost Tribes and Aliyah. Brit-Am Answer.
I was wondering is any of the ALIYAH officials for Israel are considering The European Lost Tribes? I am sure there is many of us who would like to "come home" if they opened the doors for us. Many do not follow Rabbinical Law (Talmud) but Pure Torah. Most Europeans are under a Patriarch society, so they would consider the Father's lineage as well as the mother's. But "Papa Bear" is to be the spiritual Leader of the home. Why is Israel only considering Maternal rights?"
(b) Further Comment by Esther: Greek Christians Would Murder Circumcised Children!
Well Put! Most of us do say "it's not [the ALMIGHTY]s time" Perhaps there will
be a day when doors open. I have found that most of us would say we are of
Hebrew or Israelite descent, but when asked are you a JEW, feel cautious to
respond "yes", for ...that may be only the tribe of Judah. Also all of our
families view [the Christian Messiah] as Messiah and many have said if you
believe like that you are no longer JEWISH. We feel if we are HEBREW, we are
HEBREW. One thing I have noticed, is "follow the circumcision trail". Most of
the Hebrew people were reanmed Gentiles, but are militant about circumcising,
because that's what's always been done in their families for thousands of
generations. Gentiles (Japeth's lineage) don't circumcise. Here in the states,
that's a big deal. If you are white and uncircumcised, it is considered somewhat
unusual. The Universal Church was determined to change their identity. If they
could force the people to abandon all Hebrew practices, they would be more loyal
to the new religion. I read that in some Greek villages if a child was found
circumcised both he and his mother were killed, because this was carrying on the
Hebrew tradition. Thanks Again for all your hard work and research. Many of the
people in our fellowships have enjoyed your teachings!
8. Pam McCall: Judah to Arrive first!
Pam wrote: "From what I read in Scriptures, Messiah will hiss/whistle for Israel, and they will be taken up, then over to Israel. I believe many are "jumping the gun" on this matter. Messiah has His time. Scripture tells us the house of Judah will arrive first, and they have and are."
9. Enough Lack of Response to Brit-Am.
All truth passes through three
stages: First it is ridiculed.
Pleased with what you read?
