1. Biblical Proofs no. 27: BULL-CALF AEGEL

             The isles should be aware that God will gather in the
scattered ones of Israel (Jeremiah 31:10). Rachel (the mother of Joseph)
will no longer have to weep over the exile of her children for they will
return (31:15-16). Ephraim (Jeremiah 31:18) is called a bullockor young bull:


  In Hebrew Bullock is aegel. Historically this very name "Aegel" was a
diminutive (favorite nickname) for the ethnic term "Angle". The Angles gave
England (i.e. Angle-land) its name. Together with the Saxons, Jutes,
Vandals, and others the Angles conquered from the Celts the land that was
later named England.  The Angles were also called Aegels. The appellations
Angle and Aegel were employed interchangeably. The Hebrew word for young
bull is "Aegel".  Rashi (Rabbi Shlomo Yistchaki 1040-1105 CE) was the
foremost Medieval Jewish Commentator. In commentating on this verse
(Jeremiah 31;18) Rashi states that the Hebrew word Aegel (Young Bull) was a
name applied to Ephraim. This was another name applied to the English. The
English now nickname themselves "John Bull".  Since the early 1800s the
figure of John Bull  has been used to portray Britain in political
cartoons. John Bull  parallels Uncle Sam who represents the USA.

The English (Angles) were also known as Aegels. The names Aegel and Angle
appear to have been interchangeable. In Hebrew they could be two
alternative ways of pronouncing the same word.  For example, in old
Ashkenazic (European) Hebrew the ayin could have a  an  sound instead of
the usual a, thus Yankel was a nickname for someone called Yakov, with the
Ya- in Yacov being pronounced as  Yan. Similarly Aegel and Angel could
originally have both been different forms of the Hebrew Aegel.

England (Angle-land) was named after the Angles. Angleis another form for
Aegel and aegel  was a nick-name for Ephraim. Aegel means young bull.

This is an important point: The verse (Jeremiah 31:18) is strongly
indicating that the English (Angles) are to be identified with Ephraim.

Concerning Joseph, Moses commented:

      Ephraim shall return.

2. Hebrew Celtic Namesakes no.2


                  Numerous ethnic names amongst the western Celts,
especially in Britain and particularly of Pictish groups in Scotland relate
to the Province of  "Karnayim" in  Gilead of  Menasseh, east of the Jordan e.g.
Cernunnos (of Britain), Careni, Corinion, Crinan, Cerones, Carnonaco,
Cornwealas (of Britain), Cornavi (of Wales), Creone, Carnone, Cerini,
Cornabi, Conall Cernach, Cruithen (all probably Pictish groups of
Scotland), Carnutes (of Gaul), Coriondi (of Ireland), Corannied (Vandals of
Britain), Careotae and Carbone (Agathyrsi-Picts and Khazars of Sarmatia)
all derive their name from "Karnayim" of Gilead in Menasseh.

Some details of some of  the above names follow:

                 Cernunnos  (the horned god) was the god in Britain of the
Brigantes. Many Tribes in Britain  had names based on the root CRN meaning
Horn in both Hebrew and ancient British:

                 The Picts were called Quritenoi or Quriten or Cruithen or
included a people of that name. The Carnutes  (north of the Loire in Gaul)
were connected with the Druids whose centre was in Britain:

                 "Each year on a fixed date they hold an assembly on
consecrated ground in the territory of the Carnutes, whose land is supposed
to be in the very centre of the whole country of Gaul. Those who have
disputes to settle come from all over Gaul to this assembly and accept the
verdicts and rulings given to them by the Druids" (Julius Caesar, B.G. vi;2).

                  In the southwest of Britain were the Cornwealas of
CORNWALL. Ptolemy recalls the Cornavii on the west coast apparently in
north Wales. North of the Caledonni in north Scotland Ptolemy mentions the
CREONE, CARNONE, CERINI, and CORNABI. The inhabitants of the Orkneys and
Hebrides islands off the coast of Scotland were considered descendants of
Conall Cernach a fact said to prove their linkage with the Cruthin (Picts)
who claimed the same ancestor. Ptolemy places the CORIONDI in Ireland. In
Irish Mythology Cuiren was ancestor of a people named Cuirennrige. The
Welsh Triads report of the CORANNIED who were assumedly a group composed of
Varini-Vandals associated with Angles and Scandinavian groups who
collaborated with the Anglo-Saxons in the invasion of Britain. This group
eventually congregated in Bernicia (ca. Northumberland) and included Celtic
elements which they had absorbed on the Continent in Poland. In Britain
they intermerged relatively freely and quickly with the Celtic peoples whom
they conquered. Other "Keren" ethnically associated names in Britain
included the Careni, Corinion (Cirencester), Crinan, Cerones, and
Carnonacao. Ptolemy placed the Careotae and Carbone in north European
Sarmatia neighbouring the AGATHYRSI who migrated to Scotland and became the
Picts. All of these appellations contain the root -KRN- meaning (as in
Cernunnos, the Celtic-British horned god) HORN from the Hebrew KRN (Keren)
or QRN. The Prophet Amos inveighed against the northern kingdom of Israel
prior to its exile: "Ye which rejoice in a thing of naught [Hebrew:
"LO-DEBAR"], which say, Have we not taken to us horns [Hebrew: Karn-ayim]
by our own strength?" (Amos 6;13). This verse uses a play on words, "a
thing of nought" (Lo Debar) being similar to LADABAR a city in the
territory of Gad and Horns (Karn-ayim) being the same as the name as
another city in Bashan of Gilead. These were apparently strategic areas and
had been regained by king Jeroboam-ii of Israel from the enemy and it was
hoped that with their help security could be achieved. Karnayim appears to
have become the centre and namesake of an important province. In part of
the Israelite land of Gilead east of the Jordan, the Assyrians after
exiling the Israelites formed a Province named QERNINI (or Kernini) and
this name was derived from the previous Israelite "Karnayim". In Greek
Tradition, "KRONOS" had apparently been equated with the Canaanite god
"Baal" whose worship many of the Israelites adopted and who was frequently
depicted as a two-horned deity. In Classical Mythology, the god KRONOS (cf.
KRN") was identified both with the deity and ancestor of ancient Israel and
with the ancient ruler and god of Britain.
In their own way some of the pagan Roman savants appear to have recognized
a kinship between the so-called
"Celts" of Britain and ancient  Israel.

3. Census Data: German Origins?
(INFORMATION brought to our attention by Betty Matteson Rhodes) census bureau web site
Shows the ancestry of the majority of people in the USA as coming from:
Germany. Here are the percentages as of 1990:

German (23%)
Irish (16%)
English (13%)
Afro-American (10%)
Italian (6%)
American (5%)
Mexican (5%)
French (4%)
Polish (4%)
American Indian (4%)
Dutch (3%)
Scotch-Irish (2%)
Scottish (2%)
Swedish (2%)
Norwegian (2%)

See our work "Joseph" wherein we explained how those Germans who migrated
to the USA on the whole belonged to distinct ethnic, cultural, social, and
other groupings that had never really been part of mainstream
Germany. They were descendants of Manasseh and Ephraim who had largely kept
themselves distinct from non-Israelites and moved out when the time came.
