Israelites contribution to Greek society. As you proved in "Lost Israelite
Identity" the Tribe of Dan was a major contributor to Greek society and
was in fact Greece's rulers for a time. Lets just face it, we are the best.
Hey, Yair that would be a good book for you to write. "How the Israelites
Taught the Greeks Everything They Know" You could stir up huge controversy
and maybe have dynamite sales of your book. Controversy sells! This would
be a great book and you are the man to write it. Really if we look at Greek
society today it is nothing special. What does Greece actually contribute
to the world today! The lights went out in Greece a long time ago. You
should write about why this is so.
2. Explanation to Joshua
[Joshua 11:6] AND THE LORD SAID UNTO JOSHUA, BE NOT
AFRAID BECAUSE OF THEM:
FOR TO MORROW ABOUT THIS TIME WILL I DELIVER THEM UP
ALL SLAIN BEFORE
ISRAEL: THOU SHALT HOUGH THEIR HORSES, AND BURN THEIR
CHARIOTS WITH FIRE.
<<THOU SHALT HOUGH THEIR HORSES>>: This
expression occurs several times in
Scripture. I understand it to mean
cutting off the hooves but I may be
mistaken. Also, I do not understand the
logic behind it.
David Ben-Ariel explained:
I grew up on our
family farm for the first 11 years of my life, blessed to
be in beautiful
Risingsun, Ohio, and I understand houghing their horses is
like severing their tendons near their hooves so they're
rendered USELESS as
war horses. It's permanently "flattening their tires."
3. The Mission
Hello, Yair. Thank you for your issue 285. I was
intrigued by some of the
replies you published and particularly one which
made reference to your
You talk a lot about the Diaspora.
Can you tell me what your mission
is? Thank you.
BRIT-AM Works for the Recognition of the Present Day
the Lost Ten Tribes and for the Re-Union of Joseph with
Brit-Am works for the recognition by both the Lost
Ten Tribes ("Joseph" or
"israel") and the Jews ("Judah")
as to who the
Lost Ten Tribes today are: i.e.
That most of the Lost Ten Tribes today are to
be found amongst citizens
of the following nations: Britain, Ireland, the
USA, Canada, Australia,
New Zealand, South Africa (until recently),
Switzerland, France, Belgium,
Luxembourg, Netherlands (Holland), Denmark,
Norway, Iceland, Sweden,
Finland. All together there are 17 nations but five
of these (Britain,
Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa) could be
considered as one
entity whereas Luxembourg and Iceland could be considered
too small to
count on an international scale and should perhaps be subsumed
neighboring entities. That leaves us with 11 entities and with the
Israel we therefore have 12 parallel to the 12 tribes of Israel. We
say that everyone in the said nations is of Israelite descent. We
admit that descendants of Lost Israelites are to be found all over the
world especially in Europe, as we explained in The Tribes and our other
works. We do however say that in the named nations are to be found a
substantial percentage of Israelites (possibly a majority in some cases)
and also that Israelite characteristics were strongly apparent in the
formation of the national character and in the developmental history. These
countries may therefore be considered as Israelite.
We also believe
that ultimately the two entities of Judah and Joseph will
unite and that the
knowledge of Identity
is a prerequisite and integral part of
Many individuals amongst both Judah and Joseph have experienced
in this direction and Brit-Am
gives direction and formulation
to such instinctive feelings.
Others worked in this direction
(identifying the Lost Ten Tribes in the
west) before us and still do so
parallel to us.
We however have had something of our own to add and provide a
forum for many who otherwise
may not find one as suitable as we
are or at least strive to be.
Our emphasis at present is on proof and on
making this proof known:
For some people the matter is already proven beyond
any shadow of doubt and
is entirely obvious and any more talk on the subject
may seem superfluous.
This is not enough however. We need to provide
evidence that to an
unprejudiced mind is sufficient. The evidence we
provide pertains to
several different disciplines that supplement and
interconnect with each
other. Consequently we do not necessary need the
evidence to be
overwhelming in any one area but rather it should always be
sufficient to indicate the high probability in each field.
fields of evidence that Brit-Am works with include:
a. Scripture: This is
the most important source of proof and the one where
the evidence is most
Others supplied a lot of this evidence before us but we have
added a few
points of our own. Also since the proofs are true ones we are
b. Jewish Rabbinical Sources: These are
important for believing Jews as
well as those who have a genuine
In this field the said sources confirm our understanding of
we say that certain verses apply to the Lost Ten Tribes and
sources also affirm this. In addition Rabbinical sources provide
independent traditions that
are proofs in their own right.
History: This includes all related disciplines such as linguistics,
Mythology, archaeology, etc. In this field our explanations revived
previously outdated theories sand provided new and better justifications
for them. Our continued research is daily strengthening the case we have
made concerning Lost Ten Tribes Brit-Am Identity along historical lines.
Some Academic scholars have been saying in their own way similar things to
what we have said.
d. Genetics and DNA. This is our weakest point.
DNA studies when properly
understood are in line (on the whole)
Brit-Am says but more work needs to be done in this area.
Events and Personal Experiences: These when understood in
the light of
proof Brit-Am explanations.
We still need to advertise
more, publish and distribute a work in Hebrew,
and function with greater
All of this requires identification with Brit-Am, funding, and

6. Anti-Semitism in Joseph?
In a message dated
8/30/2003 3:29:46 PM Eastern Standard Time,
<<Everywhere you find these two tribes (Judah and Joseph)
other and antagonistic to each other, etc. May we infer from
even the future Anointed Captain of War who will arise from Joseph
Annoited Messiah who will arise from Judah will (Heaven forbid) be

<<EPHRAIM:>> represents all the Ten
this is a reapeating theme in your works
explain in more depth what is the qualitative difference between
enmity and classical antisemitism of say, Edom?
Answer: This is the type of question that to do it justice would
tremendous amount of research and even then
would be subject to numerous exceptions and qualifications.
First of all,
anyone can be antisemitic including Jews and Israeli
A few years ago I read of a case in Poland where the headmaster of
requested that the parents of two
brothers pay him a visit. Their
sons had been beating up and harassing
Jewish students. The parents then
that the time had come to reveal to their children that they too were
Jewish. They had kept it secret even from their own offspring. At that time
in Poland such knowledge could have become an impediment.
this type of case
We say that relatively speaking descendants of Israel will
tend to be less
anti-semitic than others
and instinctively more
pro-Jewish. We still hold by this and believe that
it is an indication that
proves itself over and over again.
Even so, we also know that Judah and
Joseph have always had a certain
antagonism and jealousy towards each
other. How can you make a distinction
between fraternal friction and inborn
I would say the difference is that of murderous hatred and
Antisemitism in its virulent form is murderous hatred. Those who
sickness imply that the Jews have no right to exist physically or
spiritually on the same level as normal people.
Prejudice is when you say
that you would prefer that a certain type of
person not dwell in your
neighborhood, not learn in your schools, etc, but
you have no objection to
them learning in their own schools and dwelling in
their own neighborhoods
under conditions equal to or even better than your
own. Prejudice is natural
and is not necessarily harmful. We are all
prejudiced in some way or
Prejudice and hatred often overlap each other and it is not always
to distinguish between the two.
The plight of
the Palestinians is a real one. After 1948 about 500,000 Jewish
from Arab lands came to Israel whereas about 400, 000 (or at least
700,000) Palestinians fled to Arab lands.
The Arab nations refused
to allow the Palestinian refugees to be
assimilated in their cultures
since they wished to maintain their separate presence as
Israel in terms of propaganda value and as possible cannon fodder. Most of
Palestinian refugees are now in Jordan, or Gaza, or in areas of Judah
Samaria on the West Bank of Israel. The present hostilities caused by
the Oslo War
have hurt their opportunities to work, and to function
normally as they
should do. This is the path they chose and still cleave to
families suffer because of it.
International concern for the
Palestinians is sometimes genuine. There are
good people who wish to
the Palestinians from their oppressive circumstances and have been
into thinking that Israel is the culprit.
There are however other
causes in the world today that are much worse and
concerning which these
people appear to be unconcerned. An example is the people of
who for decades have been systematically decimated,
vigorously tormented. These people are black Christians or
pagans and those
persecuting them are Arab-speaking slightly-lighter
skinned Moslems who
consider themselves Arabs and the blacks their natural
born slaves. No-one
says anything. As far as the UN is concerned the case
almost does not exist
but the case of Israel is what it mainly concerns
itself about. Out of all
the world's problems you would thing that there is
nothing more important
and nothing worth more dedication than condemning and
attempting to harm
the State of Israel.
Apart from the Sudan, there are
numerous other examples. The non-Israelite
nations of this world are all
heathens and think like heathens.
My impression is that the
pro-Palestinians do not really care what
happens to the Palestinians, nor do
the Arabs care, nor necessarily do many
of the Palestinians themselves care.
Nor do most peoples of the world
They would like to see the
end of Israel as an independent entity. They
would prefer to see as many of
the Jews killed as possible. They would
perhaps prefer that not too many
Palestinians or Arabs get killed or suffer
in the process but if it takes a
lot of them down, so be it (in their
implicit or explicit opinion). They
all have the suicide bomber mentality
though naturally they mostly want the
suicide bomber to be the son of their
neighbors and not themselves.
some cases suicide bombers are unfortunate misfits or wayward daughters
are made to feel socially ostracized
and already walking dead. Female
candidates are sexually abused by their
operators and made to feel that in
Islamic society there is no way back.
The only real solution is
Human transfers are possible.
Millions of Christian
French-speaking Algerians who were born and raised in
Algeria had to move to
France when Algeria received independence.
A large number (more than a
million?) of Bulgarian Moslems who identified
as Turks were expelled by the
Bulgarians to Turkey.
Numerous transfers of populations have taken place in
recent history. Some
were accompanied by bloodshed and some were relatively
can be accomplished in humane ways and the Palestinians
must be transferred.
People who really care about preventing bloodshed should
be in favor of
moving all the Palestinian Arab inhabitants in the Land of
