Dovid Harpo, the top Israeli religious (and secular) singer who gave a
short concert at the Brit-Am meeting, says he enjoyed the meeting: He

God Bless.

Brit-Am is not a religion. We quote Biblical verses in order to prove a
point or to comment on something.
Where the translation we use differs from our understanding of the Hebrew
text we say so.
 From this perspective it does not matter much what translation we use.
The KJB is still popular, many people are familiar with it and quite a few
other translations are in effect guided by it.
I personally like it.
In some cases the translators had insights or knowledge worth noting.
What concerns us is the correct translation of verses concerning Brit-Am
and for this purpose we can use any version to work from  so we may as well
use the version
with the widest acceptance.

Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall



             The Exile of the northern tribes to different parts of the
Assyrian Empire was in stages. Before the exile of Samaria (2-Kings 17;6)
meaning Menasseh, Ephraim, and Zebulon, the Tribes to the north (Dan,
Asher, Issachar, and Naphtali) had been taken away by the Assyrian monarch
who carried them captive to Assyria (2-Kings 15; 29). Likewise, the tribes
east of the Jordan (Reuben, Gad, and half Menasseh) had been carried unto
Halah, and Habor, and Hara, and to the river Gozan(1-Chronicles 5;26).

             The place of exile nominated as Assyriarefers to the province
by that name which encompassed most of Mesopotamia and extended into the
Zagros Mountains in the east, while in the west it reached unto the shores
of the Black Sea. Halah, Habor, the River Gozan, and many of the cities of
the Medes were within the confines of Assyria or close to its fringes. Hara
was much further to the east in the region straddling the borders of
present day Iran and Afghanistan.

After the eastern Tribes and the northern ones had all been exiled, there
remained only a rump state centred around the city of Samaria in the south
and these too were to be exiled.

               And the king of Assyria did carry away Israel, unto Assyria,
and put them in Halah, and in Habor by the river of Gozan, and in the
cities of the Medes.

              Because they obeyed not the voice of The LORD their God, but
transgressed his covenant, and all that Moses the servant of The LORD
commanded, and would not hear them, nor do them (2-Kings 18;11- 12).

(1). Movement by Sea
             Most of the Israelites were exiled to the north. A portion
however were transported overseas in Phoenician and Philistine ships
working for the Assyrians. The transported Hebrews were taken to Spain,
Gaul, and Britain. Proof for the transportation of Israelites by Sea is
obtainable from the Hebrew Bible, Biblical commentaries, traditions,
legends, archaeology, and historical writings. Unequivocal archaeological
evidence is available from Spain and Portugal. Those taken to Spain moved
northward into Gaul or crossed over to Britain and Ireland.

(2).  Movement by Land Northward
Ca.740-720 BCE: The Assyrians moved masses of Northern Israelites (and
other Syrians and Phoenicians) to Northern Mesopotamia and to Hara in
eastern Iran where they became identified with Cimmerians, Scyths, and Goths.

(3).  Cimmerians to Europe and Galatian-Gaul
    ¨         Ca. 640 BCE: The first waves of Cimmerians via the Anatolian
Bosporos (Turkey) were driven into the European Balkans whence they made
their way west to Gaul and Britain becoming identified as Celts and
Galatians. The Galatians were identifiable in Europe with both part of the
Celts and Belgae and with early groups in Germany.

(4). First Scythian Movements to Europe
             Ca. 550 BCE: The movement of Scythians from the Middle East to
north of the Caucasus began in earnest with the penetration of Scythia.
Offshoots from this movement reached into Western Europe and Gaul but the
only significant presence established at this early stage was the one
within the area of Poland whence Scandinavia and the West were to be reached.

(5).  Royal Scythians Move Westward
             The  Israelite-Scythians had progressed from being subjects of
the Assyrians, to being their allies, then taking control of the Assyrian
Empire and finally destroying Assyria as described in the Biblical Book of
Micah, chapter five. Climate changes in Scythia caused "Sarmatian" groups
to push the Royal Scyths westward in the period 300-100 BCE. They
re-settled at first in the area of Bulgaria, then after renewed pressure
continued north, ultimately to reach Scandinavia.

(6).  Barbarian Scythians
The rest of the Israelite Scythians were driven westward by climate changes
and by wars with peoples such as the Sarmatians and the Huns. A constant
stream of these peoples was moving westward in a movement that culminated
with the Hun invasion of Europe in the 400s CE.

(7).  The Danites and Nephtalites Move to Scandinavia
             In the very far east of Scythia in what is now eastern Siberia
and western China a good portion of the Naphtalite horde had remained. In
the 450-500 CE period the Naphtalites began to move west eventually
entering Scandinavia in the 500's and 600's CE. The Naphtalite horde
included the Danes who re-settled Denmark possibly via Sweden. The
Naphtalites themselves settled mainly in Norway. Sweden was populated by
Goths and by Suiones descendants of Shuni (pronounceable as Su-oni) son of
Gad (Genesis 46;16).

(8).  The Viking Invasions
             The continued migrations to Scandinavia resulted in
over-population, the pushing outwards of coastal populations, and
subsequent overseas colonization. The Scandinavians overseas were known as
the Vikings.

(9).  The Normans
             The Vikings settled in England, Ireland, Normandy (France),
and elsewhere. In Normandy the Vikings accepted French Culture and were
called Normans. From Normandy they invaded England in 1066.

(10).  The Picts and Khazars
                 Some groups of Sacae-related Israelites including bands of
Goths and Naphtali remained in the Caucasus region and adjoining areas of
Scythia. These were eventually to amalgamate with the Agathyrsi and form
the KHAZAR nation which converted to Judaism. Some of their descendants are
to be found today amongst the modern Jews. The real core of the Khazar
nation federation was centered on the Akatziri or "Agathyrsy" as the Greeks
called them. At some time between 50 BCE-300 CE (more likely closer to the
latter date) the Agathyrsi sent a contingent across the sea to Scotland
where it became identified with the PICTS (Servius on Aenid 4.v.146).

(11) From Germany to North America
             The Roman historian Tacitus reported the tradition that the
Germans were descended from Mannus, i.e. from Manasseh of Israel! The
Germans who Tacitus spoke of in large part moved westward to Britain,
France, Holland, and Belgium. Others remained, especially in the west, but
were numerically overwhelmed by newcomers from the east. Nevertheless, many
people of Israelite descent remained in Germany, especially in the west,
until around the 1800s when there was a massive migration to the USA. The
migrants from Germany to America were different physically, sociologically,
and ideologically from those who stayed behind.  They were on the whole,
less anti-Semitic or not anti-Semitic at all; more liberally and
independently minded, often of non-conventional, more literally-minded,
fundamental religious persuasion and of a different physical type. In
Germany they had belonged to groups and social classes that never actually
really belonged to the mainstream of historical German society. Similarly,
in Britain, the migrants to America either came mostly from the west and
north or they belonged to socially distinct elements that had formed a
separate grouping alongside the feudal stratifications that had previously
existed. In the case of Germany were have descendants of Israelites
separating themselves from their non-Israelite neighbors and moving out:
Often one village would remain and all inhabitants of the community next
door emigrate to America. In Britain we have descendants of the tribe of
Manasseh separating themselves from their Ephraimite brothers.

(12). The rest of Europe
What applies to Britain and Germany has been studied and documented but the
same phenomenon appears to have taken place throughout Europe and the world
wherever people of Hebrew origin were to be found.

5. You are unique!
You can read through the Bible, book by book.  You can let yourself perhaps
be guided by our studies on the Prophets,
by our Biblical proofs, by our summaries of the Prophets as contained in
"Origin".  You can see for yourself, decide for yourself. You will probably
see other things some of which may even strengthen the points we have made.
The end result is your own. The encounter between yourself and the Almighty
as HE reveals Himself in the Bible
is between you and HE.

7. Meeting about Brit-Am
Brit-Am supporter Binah Sujanani  had a private meeting at which we were
invited to speak about Brit-Am principles.
The meeting was held at the Ticho House restaurant in Jerusalem. It was
originally intended to keep the meeting at a low profile.
Other people however heard about the meeting and asked
to attend and most were able to do so but some had to be turned back due to
lack of space.
Altogether about 25 people attended mostly visitors and volunteers in
Israel from Scotland, the USA, Britain,
etc. who are personally known to Binah.
Yair Davidiy gave a Biblical and historical overview of Brit-Am beliefs and
Rabbi Feld also spoke on the perspective of Rabbinical Judaism regarding
Brit-Am and answered questions.
Binah spoke about the non-Jewish perspective and appreciation of Brit-Am.
Ephraim Frank spoke of the importance of reunion and mutual rapport between
Judah and Joseph.
The meeting was very successful and Binah hopes to host more such meetings.

The aims of Brit-Am  are to encourage:
1. The spread of Identity Awareness.
2. Increased Identity research and clarification.
3. Association of members together for the sake of  mutual-empowerment,
learning and fellowship.
