There were two Brit-Am Now 172's, so I have renumbered the latest ones [on
the website] to reflect the correction, so the 176 is actually 177 - the
next 'Now' should be # 178.

Dear Yair: Shalom uv'rakha
Mr. Reaume exemplifies much of the problem between Jews and Christians over
the past two thousand years culminating in the Holocaust; the need of
Christianity to have the Jewish people accept Jesus as their Messiah.
However, he does not seem to have an understanding of Jewish-Christian
history. In the 15th-16th century Spain, 200,000 Jews converted to
Christianity, either through methods of being missionized or by the force of
the Church. This created a sizable "Jews for Jesus" movement in Spain. Rather
than just accept them and draw them into their religion, the Church created
the Office of the Inquisition to make sure that the New Christians were
practicing legitimate Christianity and some mixture of Jewish and Christian
practices. Meanwhile, the political government reacted by passing laws that
persecuted New Christians (anyone who had any Jewish "blood" for three
generations) by not allowing them to own property, hire Christians, charge
interest on loans, and be in certain businesses or learn at Old Christian
institutes of Higher Learning. I suggest he read "CONSTANTINE'S SWORD," by
James Carroll (an ex-Catholic Priest, but still a believing Christian. He
chronicles the history of Christian anti-Semitism that brought about the
Holocaust. We should all be aware of this sad history.
Your wise statement "The Rabbis on the whole would prefer that non-Jews find
their own way to salvation," is based upon the Biblical Prophet's teachings
that there is only ONE God and all who treat each other with respect and live
the 7 Laws of Noah are worshippers of that one God fully. See Deuteronomy 4:
19; Amos 9: 7; Micah 4: 5.

3. Reading the Tanach with Brit-am message in mind

Subject: Reading the Tanach with Brit-am message in mind

When you read the Tanach with the message of Brit-am in mind the prophesy
that opens up before your eye's is astonishing and can be quite
overwhelming. I have been a member to Brit-am for more than a year now and
thanks to Yair's research I have become quite knowledgable in the Bible and
history because they perfectly correspond with each other. Once you gain a
certain amount of knowledge through Brit-am's information, the entire
Tanach opens up to you and things in the Tanach that you didn't understand
before when reading the Tanach become plan as day and you see the
revelation of the Tanach come full circle with complete understanding when
reading the Tanach with Brit-am's message in the back of your mind. It is
absolutly amazing and is a total confirmation of the existence of God.

that every American, and the world,read this article.

A Reluctant Empire by Darris McNeely
[Extracts Only]

When Benjamin Franklin left the building in which he and other founding
fathers framed the U.S. Constitution, someone asked what kind of government
the country now had. "A republic, if we can keep it," was his reply. The
nation has indeed kept intact a republican form of government, but without
intent or desire, it has in recent years grown to become an empire rivaling
the great empires of history, such as the British and Roman.

Historians, columnists and leaders from across the political spectrum have
been speaking clearly about this dramatic change in geopolitics. On June 29,
2002, The Economist published a survey, which led with the statement,
"America again leads the world in all dimensions of power--military,
economic, cultural, scientific--by a margin out of all proportion to its
population" ("Present at the Creation," p. 3).

Foreign Affairs in its July/August 2002 issue laid out the extent of
American dominance in the standard measurements of power:

"In the military arena, the United States is poised to spend more on defense
in 2003 than the next 15-20 biggest spenders combined. The United States has
overwhelming nuclear superiority, the world's dominant air force, the only
truly blue-water navy, and unique capability to project power around the

"No state in the modern history of international politics has come close to
the military predominance these numbers suggest. America's economic
dominance--relative to either the next several richest powers or the rest of
the world combined--surpasses that of any great power in modern
history...The U.S. economy is currently twice as large as its closest rival,
Japan" ("American Primacy in Perspective," pp. 21-23).

America also leads the world technologically. Its expenditures in research
and development of all technology sectors are close to equaling the next
seven richest countries combined (ibid.).

America has bases or rights at 200 places in 40 countries around the world.
It maintains 12 carrier task forces and the most sophisticated missile
technology in the world. No other nation comes near to matching this kind of

It is significant that America leads in all these areas at the same time and
in such a powerful manner. It is reminiscent of another great commercial and
military power, Great Britain in the 19th century. The Foreign Affairs
article goes so far as to say, "The United States has no rival in any
critical dimension of power. There has never been a system of sovereign
states that contained one state with this degree of dominance" (p. 23).

The cover of the summer 2002 issue of The Wilson Quarterly raised the
question, "An American Empire?" No less than five essays sought to answer
the question. One--titled "What Kind of Empire?"--adds that America
"commands a predominant share of the world's intellectual talent, through an
array of outstanding graduate schools and institutes of advanced learning
and research. Further, the United States has established a unique cultural
predominance...through the seductive power of its entertainments and
fashions, from movies to blue jeans to gangsta rap. Never before has there
been anything quite like this American domination of the world" (pp. 37-38).

Conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer succinctly summarized the length,
breadth and depth of the American empire:

"The fact is no country has been dominant culturally, economically,
technologically and militarily in the history of the world since the Roman
Empire. We maintain the stability of international commerce, the freedom of
the seas, the flow of oil, regional balances of power (in the Pacific Rim,
South Asia, the Middle East) and, ultimately, we provide protection against
potentially rising hostile superpowers" (ibid., p. 43).

"He shall become a people..."

In the history of nations there has not been any single state to match
America's current commanding world role. This is the dramatic fulfillment of
the prophecy made to Manasseh, the eldest son of the patriarch Joseph.

Genesis 48 contains the story of Joseph bringing his two sons to his father,
Jacob, also known as Israel. Israel in his old age had been reunited with
his favorite son and sought to pass to his grandchildren the divine
blessing, which God passed to him from his grandfather, Abraham, through his
father, Isaac.

"Joseph brought them from beside his knees, and he bowed down with his face
to the earth. And Joseph took them both, Ephraim with his right hand, and
Manasseh with his left hand toward Israel's right hand, and brought them
near him.

"Then Israel stretched out his right hand and laid it on Ephraim's head, who
was the younger, and his left hand on Manasseh's head, guiding his hands
knowingly, for Manasseh was the firstborn. And he blessed Joseph, and said:
'God, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked, the God who has fed
me all my life long to this day, the Angel who has redeemed me from all
evil, bless the lads; let my name be named upon them, and the name of my
fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst
of the earth'" (Genesis 48:14-16).

Joseph sought to intervene when he saw that Israel's right hand was upon the
younger son, Ephraim.

Manasseh, being the eldest, should have received the dominant blessing. But
God was guiding Israel despite the appearance of error. God had distinct
roles for the descendants of these sons. Notice verse 19, "But his father
refused and said, 'I know, my son, I know. He [Manasseh] also shall become a
people, and he also shall be great; but truly his younger brother [Ephraim]
shall be greater than he, and his descendants shall become a multitude of

Manasseh was to become a great people while his brother Ephraim was to
become a greater multitude of nations. Their modern descendants, America and
Great Britain, have been the recipients of this promise of physical blessing
given by God through the fathers.

America in the past century has been a blessing for so many nations in the
world. Its value for human life, freedom and opportunity led to decisive
involvement in the great crises of recent years. It was American entry into
two global conflicts, World Wars I and II, that turned back the wave of
totalitarian anarchy, which threatened the world. In the aftermath of World
War II, Marshall Plan dollars were instrumental in rebuilding the prostrate
nations of Europe.

In an end-time prophecy about Joseph's descendants, Genesis 49:22 states,
"Joseph is a fruitful bough, a fruitful bough by a well; his branches run
over the wall." American aid in the form of money and food continue to go to
regions of the world where poverty and starvation are endemic. It has
literally fed those who hate all that the nation stands for.

Recently deceased American historian Stephen Ambrose often pointed out that
the sounds of American GIs entering cities like Paris, Lyon or Berlin meant
liberation instead of oppression. America's role as world superpower came
not by a conscious plan for world domination. That is against the most basic
American experience and values. America came into existence with
anti-imperial ideas and continually resisted imperialist ambitions. Rather,
it grew into the role by a combination of factors, not the least of which is
God's blessing and design, over many decades.

In an increasingly dangerous and anarchic world, its role is critical for
peace and stability. A world without the United States would be a far
different and potentially more hostile world than the one we see now. The
scramble created by nations trying to get to the top of the heap could
result in a chaotic world order.

A recent analysis by Stratfor raised this point. "The United States is
taking control of countries throughout the world, bringing benefits and
making threats. But the United States has no theory of empire. How can a
democratic republic and an empire coincide? The issue is not whether this
should happen. It is happening. The real issue, apart from how this plays
out, is what effect it will have on the United States as a whole. A global
empire whose center is unsure of its identity, its purposes and its moral
justification is an empire with a center that might not hold"

The key to understanding America's position as world superpower is that its
wealth and resources come directly from the hand of God. This key determines
the future of the nation. America is rich and powerful because of God's
blessing. It will continue as long as God upholds the agreement made long
ago to forgotten ancestors.
