1. Herb Frizzell: Reunification in Process
From: Herb Frizzell
Subject: Re: "Brit-Am Now"-416

Kinid of looks like part of the joining of Joseph and Judah has already
taken place since there are 6 million Jews in the U.S. (give or take a few)
and there are slightly less in the State of Israel and other countries have
relatively lesser Jews compared to the above.

So about 82% of the world's Jews (approximately 13 million) are either in
the U.S. or the State of Israel (which is financially and politically and
morally support by the U.S. 10 tribes.

Looks like part of the reunification has already taken place - they just
live in different parts of the promised land.  Looks like Joseph (and
almost half of Judah) are in theri "appointed places".

item 3. Has Reunification Already Happened (in part)?
>Dear Yair, many believe that Judah and Joseph were re-united when Scotland
>and England became "The United Kingdom"  what do you think ?

There may have been elements from Judah amongst the Scottish
and we have discussed this possibility in our works.
NEVERTHELESS, we do not think Judah was the dominant element amongst the
Scottish but rather Manasseh, Asher, and others.
In addition, JUDAH in the Biblical sense is represented by the Jews who
keep the Jewish religion.
In the last days the other brothers will acknowledge Judah as we have written
and as the Bible declares.
Even if (and it is by no means certain) a numerical majority of descendants
of Judah were to be found
today amongst the Lost Ten Tribes "Judah" in Biblical terminology would
still refer to that portion of Judah
that keeps the Jewish religion. It is not enough to possess part of the
"blood-line", the unique Tribal Distinction
must also be exercised as required by Scripture.

Dear Yair,
         Regarding the unification of Judah and Ephraim and its "false
start" you mentioned, let me encourage you again to keep looking for ways
to accomplish this....
I would just encourage you to
keep the door open to dialogue and cooperation, as God opens up the way
and signals the right time.
         Keep up the good work, and may God open up His way for you.
         In faith for the "fulfillment of every vision,"

4. Betty Rhodes: Reunification in the USA?
  Fw: "Brit-Am Now"-416

I believe reunification has already taken place of Judah and Joseph. Look at
the USA, we have more prominent Jews in high places than any other country
in the world [outside of Israel]. Alan Greenspan controls our entire economy
here - which ultimately effects all nations- Greenspan is a Jew. Kerry, who
is running for President as I write this is married to a Jewish lady;
Lieberman, who ran for VP last term - a Jew; many in the entertainment
business [not including singers and actors]; many in our government as
senators and congressmen are Jews. The Jews in this country walk and work
alongside Joseph neck to neck with nearly no problem what so ever. There may
be a handful of skinheads here who don't like it but 98% of the people have
no problem with Judah in this country. ...
I think the world has progressed much beyond the point of reunification and
we are now heading for the final phase of things.

5. Question on Celtic Hebrews
>Dear Mr. Davidiy:
>I am interested in some of your research concerning the etymological

>Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.

Steven Collins traces Israelite Tribes to the Phoenicians and Carthaginians
The Carthaginians were Phoenician Colonists.
We have a different appreciation of who they were.
The Phoenicians were a mixture of Canaanites and other peoples.
Some Israelite Tribes may have been considered "Phoenicians" in the eyes of
others since they also sailed in ships, spoke the same language, worshipped the
same (pagan) gods and even intermarried with each other.
Nevertheless, we relate to Phoenicians and Israelites as separate entities.
The Phoenicians (and Philistines) were instrumental in transporting a
portion of the Israelites in ships to the west. The Phoenicians  were acting on behalf of
the Assyrians and were kind of "jailers" of the Israelites.
They took Israelites to Spain and probably also to Britain and Gaul. At all
events those in Spain (and Portugal) later moved to Britain and Gaul.
The Israelites were known as "Hebrews". Hebrew in the West was rendered as
"Iberi" or "Hiberi".
The Iberian Peninsula (Spain and Portugal together) was named after
Israelite colonists and the term "Iberian" was applied (by Greeks) later to
non-Israelites who lived in areas that the original Israelite "Iberians"
had been in shortly beforehand.
The real Iberians were those who had passed over into Gaul, Britain, and
The term "Hibernian" for Irishman is also derived from "Hiberi" meaning Hebrew.
The word "Hebrew" ("Ivri", "Ibri") in Hebrew means "someone from the other
or alternately "wanderer". The term "Scot" (Scottish) was interchangeable
(in Gaelic) with "Iberi" and this term also means "Wanderer".

Adapted from "Lost Israelite Identity"
The word "HEBREW" (originally used almost exclusively for Israelites) comes
from the root "Aber or "Iber". The appellation "IBERI" was later given to
natives of North Africa who entered Spain as a result of Carthaginian
policy20. 20. CAH 7 Cambride Ancient History p.782,
ALBERT DIETRICH,  "Phonizische Ortsnamen In Spanien" Leipzig,   1936, p.6.
HENRI HUBERT,  "The Greatness And Decline Of The Celts". London 1934, p.77.
  The name "Iberi" incorrectly applied to the North African newcomers
apparently by Greeks who transposed an already existing ethnic definition
of another people known to them by that name in the Spanish area..
                 The term "Iberi" means "HEBREW". This name or variations
of it (e.g. Ebero) in Spain derived originally from the people driven out
by the Carthaginians and North Africans. The original "Iberi" (or Hiberi)
had from Spain passed into Gaul and the British Isles and the root "Eber"
(or "Iber" or "Heber") is frequently found in the "Celtic" nomenclature of
those areas. The overwhelming majority of places bearing the name IBER and
its cognates are Celtic21( 21. FREDERIC DE ROUGEMONT,  "L'Age de Bronze, ou
Les Semites en Occident", Paris, 1866,   p.102) and  everywhere the name is
found was due to Celtic presence at some time or other .

                 Amongst Celtic names of importance was that of "EBER"
(meaning Hebrew) examples of which are found spread throughout the Celtic
world. The Celtic settlers of Britain referred to themselves as "Hiberi" or
"Iberi" .
                 EBER: In the country of the Parissi was the city of York
called Eboracum by the British, Ireland was called Hibernia, and there were
the Hebrides Islands and numerous places in Gaul and other Celtic areas
whose names contained the root " eber" meaning Hebrew.
In addition,
                 "...there were twenty or more places in Wales, the names
of which begin with another form of the name Eber Aber such as Aberystwyth
and Aberdare. In Scotland we find Aberdeen, Aberfoyle, Aberdour, Aberargie,
Abruthven  and several others"28. BENNET, W.H. "Symbols of Our Celto-Saxon
Heritage",  London, 1976, p.114.

                  Celtic Mythology and toponomy is replete with Hebraic
names many of which were recorded long before the christian era when the
Celts were still pagans and therefore cannot be ascribed to extraneous
                 The Iberi (Hiberi) had once been in Spain and due to them
the North African natives who invaded Spain after them and drove them out
were in turn called Iberi (Iberians) by the Greeks and Romans.
                 An additional proof for ascribing the original application
of the name HEBER to the Celts is the fact that Celtic peoples such as the
Gaelics of Britain and Ireland called themselves Iberi and their dominant
presence in Britain is marked on the maps of Ptolemy. These people had been
in Spain at the time when the name Heber or Iber was first applied to
regions and rivers there and they had been driven out to Gaul and the
British Isles where numerous additional place and ethnic names received the
appellation HEBER and its cognates. This name is considered typically
Celtic and an indication of Celtic presence29. de Rougemont (ibid) p.102,
Hubert (ibid) p.288.
Its later application to the Spaniards is a misnomer.
                 Names containing the root "HEBER" meaning Hebrew are found
throughout the Celtic sphere of influence especially in its western section
of Gaul and Britain:
                  Examples30 of place names containing this root in places
somehow or other regarded as those of a sometime Celtic presence are
multitudinous and include Yboracum the original name of York, Hibernia the
name of Ireland, the Hebrides, and numerous others*[2].
[2] *Ybora: mouth of Halys River in Anatolia, place of a  Galatian colony.
Hebros River: in Thrace, scene of Celtic presence.
Iberia: in the Caucasus, north of Assyria, legendary area of exiled
Israelite Ten Tribes re settlement, cultural connections with the proto-Celts.
Ibernia: name for Spain derived from the original Iberians who accepted
Celtic culture and migrated to the west and north.
Hibernia: name for Ireland.
Iberni in southwest Ireland.
Ibnerni Ocean east of Ireland.
Hebrides: islands off the northwest coast of Scotland, a Celtic
region.  Menasseh ben Israel spoke of an early Hebrew inscription having
been discovered on the Hebrides.
Eboracum: A Celtic name for the city of York in north England. York gave
its name to the North American city of New York where there are reportedly
more people of Jewish extraction (mainly from the tribe of Judah) than in
the modern State of Israel!
Eburodunum: also known as Embrun in the French Alps of ancient Gaul.
Evorolocum: in Auvergne, Gaul.
Eborobritum: Beira, Gaul, note the combination of Brit (Briton) with EBER!.
Eborovices: Evreux, in Gaul
Eborobriga: Yonne, in Gaul.
Eboromagus: (in the region of Aude, in Gaul) also known as "Hebromagus" and
close to Narbonne in southern France an historically significant centre in
many ways.
Eborodunum: Yverdon, in Switzerland, once dominated by the Celtic Tribe of
Eboresheim, Eporestal, Eburingen: all Celtic place names in Germany. The
Galatian Celts were once based in west central Germany but were driven out.
Note the Semitic interchange of "p" for "b" as in Eporestal.
Eburones: a Celtic people who once dwelt between the Main and Rhine rivers.

                 The denomination "HEBREW" as applicable to ISRAELITE in
distinction to foreigners is found in the Book of Jonah: Jonah the prophet
had been commanded by God to go and call upon the inhabitants of the
Assyrian capital city Nineveh to repent. Jonah did not want to help the
Assyrians so he attempted to flee the Holy Land which place is most
conducive to Prophecy, whereas outside of the Land the Divine Presence
makes Itself less palpable. He went to the port of Jaffo on the coast and
took a ship headed for Tarshish. A supernatural storm arose and after
casting lots the sailors realized that their ship was endangered due to
Jonah's presence. The men of the ship asked Jonah:

                 "Whence comest thou? what is thy country and of what
people art thou" (Jonah 1:8).
  Jonah answered:
  "Hebrew" in the Bible is synonymous with Israelite.
