4. The Scythians
Wikipedia Article on Scythians
<<Recent digs in Bel'sk 50.02 N 34.38 E near Poltava (Ukraine) have uncovered a vast city identified by Boris Shramko as Gelonus. The city's commanding ramparts and vast area of 40 square kilometers exceeded even the outlandish size reported by Herodotus. Its location at the northern edge of the Ukrainian steppe would have allowed strategic control of the north-south trade route. Judging by the finds dated to the 5th and 4th centuries BC, craft workshops and Greek pottery abounded, as well as slaves perhaps destined for Greece.>>

<<Edmund Spenser wrote that "the Chiefest [nation that settled in Ireland] I Suppose to be Scithians ... which firste inhabitinge and afterwarde stretchinge themselves forthe into the lande as theire numbers increased named it all of themselues Scuttenlande which more brieflye is Called Scuttlande or Scotlande" (A View of the Present State of Ireland, c. 1596). >>

<<Archaeologists discovered in 2000 that Scythians landed several miles outside St Austell in Cornwall and their presence had an influence on the Cornish language[citation needed]. >>>????

Wikipedia Article on Sakas (East Scythians)
Some Extracts:

<<The most notable Saka burial to date, whose occupant is referred to as the "Golden Man", was found in Kazakhstan. The silver dish found with the "Golden Man" is of a type common to other Germanic finds and is inscribed with a form of runic writing related to that found in Germanic and Scandinavian runic writing. However full knowledge of Germanic and Scandinavian runic writing is still not complete and combined with the likelihood of linguistic distance between Indo-European and Indo-Iranian, the language and content of the "Golden Man" dish have not yet been satisfactorily deciphered.

<<European peoples

<<Some researchers have argued that both the Celtic and Germanic people came from an area southeast of the Black Sea and migrated westward to the coast of Europe, starting with the reign of the Persian king Cyrus the Great when they declined to help him in his conquest of the Babylonian empire. Herodotus (440 BC) mentions a division of Persians known as Germanioi (Hist. 1.125). However, this is probably an imprecise rendering of the name Kerman (later Greek sources have Karmanioi), and it has nothing to do with the Latin name of the Germanic people.

<<The adherents of the Saka theory point out that the burial customs of the Scythians and the Vikings show certain similarities. Furthermore, the Old English chroniclers write that when the Saxons invaded England ca. 400 AD together with the Angli, they "sent back to Scythia for reinforcements". The implication is that the Saxons considered themselves to be Scythians -- the name having traveled with them even though they were far away from the region the Greeks had labelled "Scythia". However, the chroniclers have most probably taken over the name Scythia and its somewhat imprecise usage from the Latin literature; Scythia was identified with Sweden because of a superficial similarity of the two names (due to the fact that Scythia was pronounced [sitia] in Medieval Latin).

Subject: Visigoths in London

Dear Yair

A buckle that may have belonged to a tribal leader has been unearthed in southeast London.

The buckle, from the 7th or early 8th century, was gilded in gold or tin, and would have glistened so much that its wearer was sure to be noticed. It goes on display at the Museum of London today.

The buckle, a copper alloy with a Byzantine design, would usually be found in what is now southern Spain or Portugal.  It is, therefore, a Hispano-Visigothic object.,,2-2332660.html

This date ties in with the demise of the Visigoth

The Conquest of Spain
The traditional story is that in the year 711, an oppressed Christian chief, Julian, went to Musa ibn Nusair, the governor of North Africa, with a plea for help against the tyrannical Visigoth ruler of Spain, Roderick.

Musa responded by sending the young general Tariq bin Ziyad with an army of 7000 troops. The name Gibraltar is derived from Jabal At-Tariq which is Arabic for 'Rock of Tariq' named after the place where the Muslim army landed.

The story of the appeal for help is not universally accepted. There is no doubt that Tariq invaded Spain, but the reason for it may have more to do with the Muslim drive to enlarge their territory.
The Muslim army defeated the Visigoth army easily, and Roderick was killed in battle.

After the first victory, the Muslims conquered most of Spain and Portugal with little difficulty, and in fact with little opposition. By 720 Spain was largely under Muslim (or Moorish, as it was called) control.

One reason for the rapid Muslim success was the generous surrender terms that they offered the people, which contrasted with the harsh conditions imposed by the previous Visigoth rulers.

9. Poll of Americans  42% Israel was  given to the Jewish people by God

Poll of Americans  42% Israel was given to the Jewish people by God
August 24, 2006

Israel and Biblical Prophecy

A substantial minority of the public views the state of Israel through a
religious lens. Indeed, a plurality of the public (42%) believes that Israel
was given to the Jewish people by God. Similarly, more than one-in-three
Americans (35%) say that Israel is part of the fulfillment of biblical
prophecy about the second coming of Jesus. These numbers are largely
unchanged since 2003.

In the South, a solid majority (56%) believes that Israel was given to the
Jewish people by God, and nearly half (45%) say that Israel fulfills
biblical prophecy about the second coming of Jesus. In other regions of the
country, there is much less support for these points of view.

Among religious groups, white evangelical Protestants stand out for their
widespread belief that Israel was given by God to the Jews (69%), and that
Israel is the fulfillment of biblical prophecy (59%). Majorities of black
Protestants also share these points of view. White mainline Protestants and
Catholics, by contrast, are much less likely to see a religious dimension to
the establishment of the state of Israel.

Not surprisingly, beliefs about the Bible are closely related to views about
the state of Israel. Large majorities of those who view the Bible as the
literal word of God say that Israel was given by God to the Jews and that
Israel is the fulfillment of prophecy (70% and 62%, respectively). These
figures are much lower among those who do not believe the Bible is the
actual word of God.

Religious Views Shape Mideast Sympathies

The July survey also shows that many more Americans say they sympathize more
with Israel (44%) than the Palestinians (9%). A subsequent Pew survey,
conducted Aug. 9-13, found even broader support for Israel; 52% said they
sympathized more with Israel, compared with 11% who sympathized more with
the Palestinians. (See "American Attitudes Hold Steady in Face of Foreign
Crises," Aug. 17).

An analysis of the July survey finds that support for Israel is even
stronger among those who see religious implications in the
state of Israel. Indeed, a large majority (63%) of those who believe Israel
was given by God to the Jewish people say they sympathize more with Israel,
as do a majority (60%) of those who see Israel as the fulfillment of
biblical prophecy. By contrast, among those who do not share these beliefs
far fewer say they sympathize more with Israel than the Palestinians.
