1. Personal Contributions
The message in <<"Brit-Am Now"-194: Important>> asking for contributions
was directed to everybody. Nobody should take it as overduly personal.
If somebody has difficulties then we would rather they not contribute
especially not at the expense of their family needs. Let each one be guided
by his own
inner voice. No-one has to send us explanations. We are pleased that you
are here.
We need your readership more than anything else since that is the purpose
of the task before us.
On the other hand, there is also a concept of tithing and people who tithe
receive what they gave
back (often several times over) through Divine Providence.
God bless you

Someone may want to confirm my map reading abilities. It so happens that
Palestine, TX is the same latitude as Jerusalem. The people who established
the town probably wasn't aware of this; on the other hand...?


3. Enemy of Brit-Am Partially Exposed
A person with the e-mail address
A <odeleeli@f...>
who signs himself by the name "Levi" has dedicated himself to attacking
Brit-Am and spends quite a lot of time on the internet doing what he can to
harm us.
From what we gather he lives in Italy. He is a minister for a Messianic group
called "Chosen People Ministries". This ministry seems to concentrate on
Gypsies and on Jews in eastern Europe especially the Ukraine.
The person concerned has in the past (as suggested in one of his posts)
been involved in missionizing Gypsies throughout Europe and also in Israel.
He travels in eastern Europe and sometimes makes trips to the USA. He knows
Spanish, Italian, and several
other languages, probably German and Hungarian as well, and may have
had academic training though he often makes mistakes. He says that English
is not his mother tongue.
He once described himself as relatively light-skinned though of Indian
origin. He said once that he came from India.
Another time he claimed to be a Yemenite Jew.
We suspect he may a have changed his "identity" several times over.
He posted a web site about Ofra Haza who was a popular Israeli singer of
Yemenite origin. He himself is too nasty to be a Yemenite Jew or even to be
a Jew at all, but we still do not know.
Not so long ago there was a person from the region of Cuba who was very
similar in attitude and characteristics.
to "Levi" and he too had several identities.
He claims he is Jewish and signs himself as "Levi". This is very very
doubtful but you never know.
I do not think he really likes Jews very much.
He does not hesitate to quote from Nazi web-sites.
He hates Anglo-Saxons and considers them to be the source of most evil. His
group believes that Britain and the USA are the main forces of Gog and
Magog who will be lead by the "anti-Christ".
He thinks the Lost Ten Tribes do not exist or if they exist they are
amongst the Gypsies, Kurds and Indians of India.
He dedicates a lot of time and energy to attacking Brit-Am and we suspect
may be working on behalf of a third party.
Maybe his group (centered in the USA) has commissioned him to attack Brit-Am.
He uses dirty language and dirty methods and lying sources.
He has the ability to browbeat and mislead uninformed people and therefore
is dangerous.
His group runs a million-dollar operation and are favorable toward
organizations seeking the Lost Ten Tribes in Asia and Africa.
We have now discovered his identity.
It is AVRAHAM REVELLO or else this is ANOTHER pseudonym he uses.
REVELLO is not a Jewish name. It is a Spanish name though also found in
Italy and France.
In Latin the word "revello" means "to violate, pluck away." It is quite

Over the years Brit-Am has had quite a few opponents. Maybe 40 of them were
serious. About 3 out of the
40 seemed to be decent people. All the others were not.
Judging by those who oppose us we must be doing something right.
Maybe we do not realize our own importance. Somebody is dedicating
resources and energy against us
so we must be making an impression somewhere.

4. Nazi lies against Brit-Am
A Nazi scum-bag web-site
run by a cowardly faggot named Martin Lindstedt
had the following message:

<<However, some of it may be natural racial and religious enmity as what
happened several years ago in my contact with a certain Jew who wished to
preach reconciliation between Christian Israelite and Khazar Jew. Upon
bringing up the inconsistency of Christian Israelites obeying the Christian
Old and New Testaments and Khazar Jews obeying their Talmud, the exchange
between us both got decidedly hostile, with this Khazar Jew calling me
an "Amelekite" although a posting or two earlier I had been a "brother
Manassehite." While it is recognized that this particular Jew could certainly
understand quite a bit concerning Christian Israelite doxology, and, if any
Jew could, reconcile it with Khazar Jew Talmudism, this particular Jew found
it literally impossible. (5) However, I found it
(5) This particular Khazar Jew is named Yair Davidy, who, according to
various CI sources, is a former member of the WorldWide Church of God, and
the offspring of a Gentile father and Khazar Jew mother. Yair Davidy is
trying to peddle his beliefs to the ancient British Israelite section of the
Covenant doxology of the Christian Israelite belief, and finding few takers.
Especially with the Dual-Seedliners.>>

Yair Davidiy Responds:
Please note I am not a former member of WWCG. It is not
my style to call people "brother Manassehite" nor "Amelekite" .
The Khazars were formidable warriors. They ruled well and introduced civilized
concepts to barbarian peoples. They were highly cultured for their age and
If I had any Khazar ancestry I would be proud of it but I think I probably
do not.
I know who my parents were and am pleased with what I am.

5. Celts and Picts and Agathyrsi

Adapted from "Lost Israelite Identity. The Hebraic Ancestry of Celtic
Races" [First part of Section Three]

Celtic legends concerning their origin conform to archaeological findings,
linguistics, and general history and show the western Celts to have been
Israelites possessing a mixed Canaanite-Hebraic culture. Both before and
after the Christian era some of the Insular Celts kept parts of the Mosaic
Law. The dietary prohibitions were adhered to until fairly recently in
Scotland and at one stage probably throughout much of the western Celtic

The Celts of Britain were related to the Jews according to
Classical pagan mythology that identified the Jews with the People of
Kronos (Saturn) who were also equated with the Celts of Britain and the
Galatae of Gaul. Thus, it was implied that the western Celts and the Jews
were of one origin.

The religious practices of the Celtic Druids reveal an
admixture of Middle Eastern and Hebraic tradition and since the Lost Ten
Tribes were exiled due to idolatry the Druids were running true to form.

Many names of peoples and places in Celtic Britain and
Gaul are Israelite and parallel those found in Scripture. A certain pagan
Celtic "Hyperborean" religious cult anciently practised in the British
Isles is that which the Prophet Isaiah (ch.66) condemned the Israelites in
exile for adhering to.

Historically, the Lost Ten Tribes were taken en-masse to
areas from which emerged the Cimmerians and Scythians and from them came
settlers of western Europe. The very names of the Cimmerians and Scythians
may be derived from appellations of Israelites: The Assyrians called the
northern Israelites "Bet-Humri" (i.e. in Assyrian, "The House of Omri") or
just "Humri" which was pronounced by the Assyrians similarly to "Gumri"
which was the name given to the Cimmerians. The King of the Cimmerians was
referred to as the "King of the Amurru" which could also mean "King of the
Israelites". The Cimmerians (who were known as "Gumri" and "Gamir") are
also identified with "Gomer" -the name of an ethnic group descended from
Japheth son of Noah (Genesis 10). "Gomer" was also the name of a symbolic
woman whose children according to the Prophet Hosea represented the exiled
dispossessed lost northern Tribes of Israel who intermixed with others and
lost their identity (Hosea ch.1). Places identified by archaeological finds
or by Talmudic tradition as those of "Gomer" son of Japhet are too those
identified by these same sources as those to which the Lost Ten Tribes were
exiled. The historical indications are that the Lost Ten Tribes in exile
(i.e. the children of "Gomer") joined or confederated with other peoples
(of whom the Cimmerians were one) who were regarded as descended from
"Gomer" son of Japhet. The Scythians emerged from the Cimmerian ranks. Both
Cimmerians and Scythians as well as the related "Guti" or Goths possessed
demonstrable Israelite characteristics such as Tribal and Clan arrangements
named and ordered in the same way as they had been amongst the Israelites
prior to exile. Even if they were not all necessarily of Hebrew origin at
least there is enough evidence that the Israelites had amalgamated with
them and this is consistent with the Biblical usage of the name "Gomer" in
the Book of Hosea.

The Scythians separated out from the Cimmerians and were
called by the Assyrians "Iskuza" or "Saka" and these terms may be
considered synonymous with the Hebrew name "Isaac" by which name the
northern Ten Tribes are called in the Bible (Amos 7: 9 7:16). In at least
one of the regions to which the Israelites had been deported appellations
applied to the Scythians were those also applicable to "Isaac" or to Israel
in general.

Many authorities on early European and Celtic civilisations (e.g.
N.Chadwick, S.Piggot, T.G.E. Powell) agree that Celtic civilisation in its
correct historical sense was initiated by the Cimmerians or their kin who
came from the east. The Cimmerians were at least partly Hebraic, as has
been shown.

That the Scythians (who were related to the Cimmerians)
came westward later and gave rise to the Angles, Saxons, Franks, and other
Barbarian nations is nowadays less readily admitted. Nevertheless, such a
movement was once generally acknowledged and there still are those who
trace the migrating peoples back to Scythia and others who (without
themselves expressly drawing the obvious conclusion) point to evidence
indicating the said direction. New research indicates that at least some of
their Scythian peoples regarded Joseph as their ancestral deity.

In addition, many more proofs (from Scriptural,
Talmudical, Historical, Archaeological, and other sources) are now being
made available linking Cimmerians, Scythians, and Goths with the Lost Ten
Tribes of Israel and with each other and tracing their migratory paths from
the east to western Europe whence they populated North America,
Australasia, and South Africa. Some of these newly-discussed sources of
evidence are quite conclusive in their own right.

On the initial historical level according to our own
researches it has been noted that there was both a land and a maritime exile:

1. On land the Assyrians took the exiled Israelites northwards
and from them (or from combinations of others with them) emerged the
Cimmerians, Scythians, Goths, and Nephtalites. From the Cimmerians and
Scythians came the Celts. From the Scythians, Goths, and company came the
Angles, Saxons, Frisians, Franks, Swiss, and Scandinavians and related
peoples as well as the Khazars.

2. By Sea the Assyrians used Phoenician proxies to transport
exiled Hebrews by ship and re-settle many of the Israelites in the west
especially (at first) in Spain. From Spain the Israelites were to receive
Celtic culture, re-unite with other "Celtic" Israelites coming overland and
thence migrate to the British Isles and to Gaul. It is shown that these
movements are demonstrable from archaeology and other disciplines.

The following facts prove the connection between the early
inhabitants of Britain and the ancient Middle East and also link them to
the Cimmerians:

The Cimmerians had established Halstatt civilisation
on the Continent somewhere in the period 700-600 b.c.e. After (and maybe
well after) ca.700 b.c.e. Bronze Age Britain was introduced to the more
intensive usage of iron. A spread of massive hill forts in southern Britain
went along with larger political units and the dominion of a military
aristocracy. The more extensive employment of iron, hill forts, and
military rule on the continent are associated with Cimmerian Celtic
civilisation. The hypothesis that Britain was invaded by successive waves
of related conquerors of Israelite-origin and often Cimmerian-
affiliation accords well with those facts known to us.

The Orphic Argonaut (v.1120, ed.Abel) describes the
passage of the Argos fom the Euxine to the Western Ocean and places the
Cimmerians far away in the north, on the way to the Iernian (i.e. to the
British) Islands. This source is dated to the 500s b.c.e. and is believed
to be based on an older tradition. Homer mentioned a city of the Cimmerians
in Britain.

At least 151 small rings, with coppercores, and once used
as money have been uncovered in Scotland. Similar finds have been found in
England and Ireland. They date from around 700 b.c.e. (or after) and the
only known parallels outside of the British Isles were found in Egypt.

In southern Scotland "vitrified" forts were quite numerous
and were actually stone enclosures which had been reinfoced by timber. When
the timber was set alight part of the stone due to the heat was turned into
a type of glass. These forts go back to the 500s or 400s b.c.e. This type
of fort originated in the Near East and Aegean, in early Crete, Troy, and


The AGATHYRSI came to Scotland from Scythia at an unknown
(but possibly late) date. The Agathyrsi in Roman times were considered to
have crossed the sea to become forefathers of THE PICTS though what
proportion they actually composed of the people known to history as
PICTS is uncertain. The Agathyrsi at various stages had been reported of
in different places:

*As being in the Pontus (i.e. in northeast Turkey) on the Black Sea shore
just west of the Caucasus Mountains;

*In the north on the Baltic Sea shore according to Ptolemy:

*and, under the name of Akatziri, in the north, to the south of Estonia
near the Baltic Seashore.

*Herodotus reported the Agathyrsi in Thrace and later Irish-Scottish
tradition (referring to the Picts as Cruithnigh) said that,

"the Cruithnigh came from Thrace. They were the children of Gleoin Mac
Ercol, that is, of Gelonus, son of Hercules, and were called Agathyrsi".
They were said, in several accounts, to have sailed first to Ireland, then
to Scotland.

The Gothic historian Jordanus said that the Akatziri (i.e.
Agathyrsi) were a most brave nation.

The Agathyrsi (Akatziri) were to form the nucleus of the
Khazar people. The Khazars converted to Judaism and at one stage became a
world power. Their centre was in southern Russia, i.e. in Scythia.
Ethnically the Khazars were related to the Anglo-Saxons and Scandinavians.
Saksin the Khazar capital was known as "The Saxon City". The Agathyrsi have
been linked to the Goths. Caucasian "Subarian traditions maintain that the
Agathyrsians originated in Assur" i.e. there exists a tradition that the
Agathyrsians came from Assyria and this is consistent with their having
been Israelites who were exiled to Assyria and re-settled by the Assyrians
on the fringes of their Empire. Herodotus relates the notion that the
Agathyrsians, Scythians, and Gelonians were brothers sons of Hercules and a
serpent woman.

Classical German sources linked the Agathyrsi with the Guths (Goths) and
with early Germanic Tribes.

The Picts who came from Scythia and were descended from the Agathyrsi are
often confused (in Encyclopediac articles, etc.) with indigenous peoples in
Scotland with whom they may have amalgamated and to whom the name "Pict"
may have been also applied at some stage or other. The Picts are
archaeologically distinguished by their way of drawing animals and by
certain symbols they employed: The Picts artistic style confirms their
eastern origins and concerning this style it has been remarked that:

"The animals which include fish, birds, bulls, boars, and deer are
executed with vigour and economy in a style common to the northern
barbarians from Scotland to the borders of China".

In other words, the Picts used the Scythian art style.
This style continued to be employed by the "barbarians" (such as Angles,
Saxons, and Franks) who emerged from Scythia as well as by the Picts who
had migrated from the same regions. The fundamental elements of this style
and its means of execution may be traced back to the area of ancient
Israel. According to D.A. MacKenzie the Picts were never very numerous and
formed a military elite that ultimately came to dominate all of Scotland.
The name "PICTI" is first found in Eumenius ca.296 c.e. but Sidonius
Apollinaris assigned them an earlier time around that of Julius Caesar. The
Picts (says Whatmore) included the Caledones of northern Scotland and their
capital was Camelon. They also had settlements in northern Hibernia
(Ireland). Some early Scottish and Irish accounts say that the Picts came
from Scythia, went to Ireland, married women of the Milesian Hiberi, and
from Ireland came to Scotland. In Ireland, we find that the term Cruithne
was also used by the Irish to describe a group of aboriginal people found
in Ireland prior to the arrival of the Sons of Mile. In other words before
the coming of the Gael. These Cruithne occupied a large part of Ulster, so
much so that they were at one time the predominant power there. They also
held territory in Munster, Meath and Leinster. It is also in Munster that
the ogham inscription stones, similar to the Pictish ogham inscriptions of
Scotland are to be found.

The Picts claimed descent in common with the Scots from
the Albani or Gentes Scitiae (People of Scythia), and this is consistent
with descent from the Agathyrsi. Their founder was said to have been
Cruidne (Cruithne) son of Cinge or Kinne. Bede also said that the Picts
came from Scythia.

An early Latin version of Virgil placed "Pictes Gelones" in northern
Scythia and the Gelones together with the Royal Scythians had been
considered (says Herodotus) brother nations to the Agathyrsi. The Picts
used a type of horse harness known from the Don River region in southern
Scythia. In the Pict area of Scotland there was a river named the Don and
another called the Gadie. These names (i.e. "Don" and "Gadie") are
traceable to Scythia and to the Goths and to the Israelite Tribes of Dan
and Gad. The Pict symbols included a mirror and comb and the sun appearing
overhead of a sailing ship. Similar symbols have been reported from
Scandinavia and are known from studies of ancient Egypt. The Picts also
used an elephant symbol and a serpent-like figure. Examples of Pictish art
are found on more than a hundred monuments scattered all over the north of
Scotland though especially concentrated in the Classical Pict area of the
northeast. It is the accepted authoritative opinion that Pictish art
reveals similarities to that of ancient Assyria and Persia!

Both most of what is now known as Assyrian art as well as
much of the Persian was actually directly produced by Israelite and
Phoenician craftsmen and is a development of the "Syrian" area. This was
the same style later to be found on Pict monuments and was independently
paralleled in Ireland.

"Although most of the `Oriental themes' are found also in Ireland, the
art of Pictavia is never Irish art"

This signifies that the Celtic Irish independently
developed their own style from the same original sources and therefore the
implications (derived from Art concerning the Pict origins) are also
applicable to them.

Concerning the Picts, Moubrey remarks,

"This blending of native and foreign styles on the same monument shows that
we are not dealing here with pure imitation of foreign models".

According to Chadwick,

"...The affinities with Sassanian [i.e. Persian] and Assyrian art are
evident in the Assyrian type of lion and lion hunt, the monkeys and
gryphon, and the generous use of vegetation ...".

Concerning the Pict Artistic use of vegetation, it is
further said that there may be found, "examples of it on Assyrian and
Persian bas reliefs".

A portion of the Agathyrsi had been in Thrace and some aspects of the
Scottish Pict decorative art are highly similar to those known from
Byzantium in the east: Byzantium adjoined Thrace. The Agathyrsi in
Transylvannia (Thrace) were renowned as metal forgers and for the
excellence of their steel swords.

In Scotland the Picts and Scotts forced the Romans to
build two long constantly patrolled walls stretching from sea to sea and
also to keep 10 per cent of all the Empire's soldiers permanently in
preparation in Britain largely against possible Pictish incursions. This
implies that the Picts could be formidable opponents. The Picts were allies
of the Angles and Saxons in the invasion of Britain. The Picts may have
even been considered a kindred race to the Saxons. Ammianus Marcellinus
referring to the Picts of Scotland spoke of the "Pictos Saxonasque" (i.e.
Saxon Picts) and (in the opinion of John Jamieson) he,

"seems to have viewed these as only different names given to contiguous and
kindred nations".
i.e. Ammianus may have considered the Picts and Saxons to have been one people.

Lukman quoted from an edition of Geoffrey of Monmouth in
which Picts were found together with Ambrones in Scandinavia. The Ambrones
in the distant past had accompanied the Cimbrians (who settled in
Scandinavia) in their march on and attempted attacking of Rome.

Donald A. MacKenzie (1935) made an interesting study of
the Picts. He said that they were (or included) an elite of pirates who
took their wives from Ireland (according to Bede) and had a kind of
matriarchal society similar to that which had prevailed in ancient Egypt.
Mackenzie calls the Picts "a seafaring and agricultural people" whose
distribution in Scotland coincides with that of "Brochs" which are
"circular stone built strongholds". Others would probably be reserved
concerning the equation of Broch-builders with the Picts. Buildings similar
to the Brochsare also found in SARDINIA, and are known there as "nuraghi".

Galfred of Monmouth linked the Picts with the Ambrones and Huns and seemed
to place some of them on the shores of Dutch Frisia!

Structures similar to those of the brochsand nuraghi are also found in
Ireland, in Arabia, in Sinai, and in the general Israel area.. The brochs
of Scotland are large beehive-like structures built of rocks. They served
as small fortress-farm dwellings for an incoming minority who imposed
themselves on the surroundings. The basic concept underlying these
structures is to be found in the Watchmens towersof ancient Israel. Much of
the soil of the Land of Israel (Palestinein the Classical sense) is rocky
though fertile. Rocks have to be periodically removed from the surface
since for geo-physical-climatic reasons they keep working themselves up
from the subsoil. These rocks are used for walls and housing and for
watchmens towers. In the Bible it reports that the children of Israel
did secretly those things that were not right .....from the tower of the
watchmen to the fenced city(2-Kings 17;9) and again He smote the
Philistines....and the borders thereof from the tower of the watchmen to
the fenced city(2-Kings 18;8). The tower of the watchmen (in Hebrew :
Migdal Notsrim) apparently referred to round beehive-like stone structures
built in the fields and serving as operational locii for the guards of
produce and as store-houses and/or places of rest and lodging for
agricultural workers. These structures are still sometimes in use today and
remains of them from ancient times are to be seen throughout the former
Israelite area. Some of these buildings actually seem to have been quite
large with thick walls and several stories high and may have served also
for defensive purposes as a kind of small fortress. The design of some of
them appears similar to that of the brochsin Scotland. The remains of whole
villages of houses (with attached courtyards) of the Beehive type have been
found in the Israeli Negev and elsewhere in the Middle East and dated to
the Middle Bronze Age and later..

The Agathyrsi proper who came from Scythia derived from
the Clan of "Jeezer" son of Gilead son of Menasseh (Numbers 26;30). The
name transliterated as "Jeezer" in Hebrew was probably pronounceable as
"Ay-(g)a-zar" and the Agathyrsi were also known as "Acatzari", Khazari, and
Gazari. Those of the Agathyrsi (Acatzari) who remained in Scythia
eventually formed the nucleus of the Khazar nation and a tradition exists
(related by Eldad HaDani in ca.800 c.e. and by the Cochin Scroll) that the
Khazars came from the Tribes of Simeon and Menasseh.

Amongst the pre-christian Picts and Scottish existed a taboo on pig meat
and on other unclean animals prohibited by the Mosaic code. Later in
Christian times the idea existed that "Jews" or a "Type of Jew" had settled
in Scotland. Similarly the Khazars before their conversion had had some
kind of notion that they were of Israelite descent and had had some
exposure to Mosaic lore. The "Jeezer" (i.e. "Ay-g-azar" of Gilead) origin
of the Picts is consistent with the neighbouring Caledonians (with whom the
Picts united) being also descended from Gilead and the very name Caledonian
is derived from Gilead. Elements (such as those of Gilead) connected with
Menasseh dominated Scotland and the west of Britain and from these areas
later came an overwhelming proportion of the early British settlers of
North America in its formative period..
