This is the clearest I have ever heard you state your position on this. It
is very good!!! I believe in the end that we will all be repenting. Truth
is fragmented. Noone has it 100%. Even in everything that I believe is
true, I believe that surely I am wrong on some things - just don't know
which ones. So I walk in what I understand to be truth today, but trying to
be humble, knowing that repentance will be a part of everyone's journey,
Jew and Christian alike.

Re Mr DSouza's article. ps is he Jewish? Science,
democracy, and capitalism, are not people, persons,
they are tools derived from the Torah but they are not
the heart of the Torah. The heart of the Torah is
The subjected people were usually considered being
inferior, and they were usually no more than tools,
I have ample proof for this from what I know and
heard. Also Yehudah often had this attitude as Jews
too got involved in 'overseas business' although maybe
some were a bit better.
In Holland there were eg the Molukkans, who were taken
to Holland by the government, and were promised that
they could return later. The Molukkans were very
pro-Dutch and for the Dutch Royal house. 'Well' these
people were a bit like little children, and the Dutch
were much more evolved, had more power. They just
didn't tell the truth and the Molukkans could not go
back at all. I do not know the full content of the
story but this much is true. So the Molukkans who even
fought for the Dutch in a war in their area, (are the
Molukkans part of a tribe?) were taken to Holland and
then kept here, a one way ticked whereas they were
told that there would be a return ticket for them.
Even slaves in Israel had a better treatment, there
were laws for them. If they wanted to stay after a
while, because they had grown attached to their
masters, o.k. That is out of love. This love must have
been initiated by their 'masters', why else would
these slaves have wanted to stay if the law released
them and redeemed them after a period of time? And
there were as I read the posted article, many laws
that prevented the keeper of a slave from exploiting
The fact that there were other empires and other
rulers before the Western colonialization, and that
these other empires were worse, does not mean that the
Western colonalization and its way of handling things
has to be considered as the best alternative. Since
the Torah is is the best alternative. And it can not
be used or misinterpreted.
To deny what has all taken place, would
be handy but
it is obvious, that it is not according to truth.
Africans were taken and treated as slaves, they were
forced from their homes to places they had never been.
It is an unnatural situation. It is exiled tribes
taking 'poor Cham' to their places of exile, but apart
from that, it is simply unjust to say the least and a
crime. They were driven out of their homes after
having been approved like cattle, approved for
usefulness; rowed their own boats so to speak to the
USA, etc. and many died from exhaustion. Is that not
The tribes were slaves in Mitsrayim
and were later
removed from the Land after they had lived there and
after they could have followed the Torah in the Land.
Except from Yehudah, all the other tribes, kept
together in groups, finally settled somewhere, and I
believe, accepted and maybe had to accept, attitudes
and beliefs and identities that were veiling who they
really were. Is it not so that even if this is the
case, the responsibility to act justly, still exists.
But is it difficult to treat an inexperienced
in India or Africa or Indonesia, as more than as a
tool? That seem a responsibility for 'rulers', but
most rulers which are not Isrealites cannot handle
this responsibility. Israelites can, because they have
been given it by G-d.
A slave works for the benefit of his master, but it is
better to work close to the goodness of G-d.
Since I live in Amsterdam, and have travelled a bit
too, I know a little bit about other cultures and
understand too, how one can come to think that there
are good alternatives and lesser alternatives. Most
non-Israelite dictatorships weren't that merciful. And
so there is no mercy or democracy in most non-Israelite
countries. But there are valuable people in and from
these countries who are not supposed to be slaves to
harness, either. Love thinks these things.
The historical lack of wise rule by the Israelite
colonists, cannot be denied. It is past times, things
can't be reversed, but it is in the interest of a
nation not to deny its faults.
Shalom to you all,

I have very happy memories of your book "Lost Israelite Identity," as when I
was in Jerusalem in September 1997 I visited the bookshop in the Jewish
Quarter in the Old City where to my astonishment and surprise I saw your
book. I simply had to take it of the shelf and when I saw the subtitle on
the front cover I was even more amazed and I immediately decided to purchase
it. I believe it may well have been the last copy in the shop, but your book
lit a fire within me that has become a veritable blaze. (please reserve me
Tribes of Israel can possibly return to Zion they must first of all be
informed of who they really are. They must be told about their extra
ordinary origins. They must be informed of their Israelite heritage and
their Israelite roots. It is only when their true Israelite identity is
revealed to them that we can begin to direct them back to Zion. I believe
that going back to Zion means two things. FIRST - it means going back to
"the Ancient Paths" of Torah observance.
SECOND - it means a physical return of the Ten Tribes (the House of Israel)
to Zion in Eretz Israel.
To accomplish the 'First' literally tens of thousands of Torah teachers will
be required all around the world where the ten tribes are located. These
teachers first of all need to be trained, as all of them need to speak the
same thing. It is a work of huge proportions - according to the Bible we are
priviledged to be involved in the greatest prophetic and miraculous work of
God for all time.
BELIEVE IT OR NOT - BUT WE HAVE THE AWESOME PRIVILEGE TO BE INVOLVED IN THE
PRELIMINARY PREPARATIONS FOR THE SECOND EXODUS!!!! This is the work you and
I, as well as all the others associated with Brit Am are involved in.
Moses, when referring to the EXODUS FROM EGYPT CALLED IT THE GREATEST THING
THAT EVER HAPPENED SINCE CREATION - DEUT 4: 32-34
"FOR ASK NOW CONCERNING THE DAYS THAT ARE PAST, WHICH WERE BEFORE YOU, SINCE
THE DAY THAT GOD CREATED MAN ON THE EARTH, AND ASK FROM ONE END OF HEAVEN TO
THE OTHER, WHETHER ANY GREAT THING LIKE THIS HAS HAPPENED, OR ANYTHING LIKE
IT HAS BEEN HEARD? DID ANY PEOPLE EVER HEAR THE VOICE OF GOD SPEAKING OUT OF
THE MIDST OF THE FIRE, AS YOU HAVE HEARD, AND LIVE? OR DID GOD EVER TRY TO
GO AND TAKE FOR HIMSELF A NATION FROM THE MIDST OF ANOTHER NATION, BY
TRIALS, BY SIGNS, BY WONDERS, BY WAR, BY A MIGHTY HAND AND AN OUTSTRETCHED
ARM, AND BY GREAT TERRORS, ACCORDING TO ALL THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD DID FOR
YOU IN EGYPT BEFORE YOUR EYES?"
Yes, it is quite true to say that there has never been anything to surpass
the miraculous Exodus of the children of Israel (some three million people)
from their bondage and captivity in Egypt. YET THE BIBLE SPEAKS OF A SECOND
EXODUS SO GREAT AND OF SUCH MONUMENTAL PROPORTIONS THAT IT WILL COMPLETELY
ECLIPSE THE FIRST EXODUS. Just let us see what the prophet Jeremiah
prophesies about this yet future event that is to occur in the time of the
Jeremiah 16: 14
"THEREFORE BEHOLD, THE DAYS ARE COMING, SAYS THE LORD, THAT IT SHALL NO MORE
BE SAID, THE LORD LIVES WHO BROUGHT UP THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL FROM THE LAND
OF EGYPT, BUT, THE LORD LIVES WHO BROUGHT UP THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL FROM THE
LAND OF THE NORTH AND FROM ALL THE LANDS WHERE HE HAS DRIVEN THEM. FOR I
WILL BRING THEM BACK INTO THEIR LAND WHICH I GAVE TO THEIR FATHERS."
This 'Second Exodus' is about the return of the Ten Tribed House of Israel
returning to Zion to be finally reunited with the House of Judah into the
UNITED KINGDOM OF GREATER ISRAEL. It is over this Kingdom that the Messiah
of Israel will reign, and it is through this Kingdom that the whole earth
will be blessed.
For us to be involved in this Divine Plan is a privilege beyond compare -
there really is no greater privilege than to be called as 'a Watchman on
"FOR THERE SHALL BE A DAY WHEN THE WATCHMAN WILL CRY ON MOUNT EPHRAIM,
'ARISE, AND LET US GO UP TO ZION, TO THE LORD OUR GOD.'" Jeremiah 31: 6
Even today God is calling and commissioning His end time Watchmen and women.
Can you hear His Divine call?
