1. Keeping the Law: Why the Sudden Ruckus?
Recently Brit-Am remarked that in our opinion "Ephraimites" are not obligated by the Law.
We meant that whatever their obligations may be they are not the same (at the moment)
as those of Judah.
Previously good followers were scandalized. We received a good number of well-written longish missives
(about half in protest) as a consequence. Some of the protests were quite virulent in tone.
For examples, See:
Joseph and the Law.
Do Ephraimites have to Keep the Law of Moses in our time as distinct from the End Times?

A look at what we have written in the past however shows that this subject has come up before.
We have given more or less the same answer several times
and for years these answers have been available for all on our web-site,
#1. Are the Lost Ten Tribes Obligated by the Mosaic Law Today?
there you will find SEVEN answers to this question, all in the same vein.

#5. Nachmanides: The Connection Between Law and Land

In other words we were not springing anything new on our readers but rather repeating something we
have said before and may even have been justified in assuming that it was well-known and taken for

ON THE OTHER HAND, Brit-Am at the moment is weakened. We are in financial straits. Our recent appeals
were responded to and this helped to a degree but the problem has not entirely disappeared.
Also our viewership is down though we have managed to restore it somewhat.
We have taken a few knocks but are still on our feet and still potent.
Even so, some of the missives we received hinted at removal of support or suggestions that our
recent troubles emanated from our attitude, etc.
The same phenomenon was repeated some time ago in similar circumstances in connection to our stand against Anti-Israelite
and anti-Jewish Conspiracy Theories.
The criticisms against us may therefore themselves reflect a less than honest reaction
and not necessarily come from pureness of heart.

2. The Assyrian and Israelite Origin of the Northern Europeans and Americans
Dr. Muhammad Shamsaddin Megalommatis
This is a long article is written by a Greek Cypriot Professor who converted to Islam and moved to the side of the Turks.
The article is a synthesis of "Identity" mainly Brit-Am type principles but contains some insights worth noting.
Warning: Article also uses Biblical Criticism; identifies Assyria with Israel and the Assyrians with the Muscovites of Russia; and may have a questionable agenda.


The tragic scattering of the "Chosen People" had long been predicted. In Deuteronomy God states: "I said, I would scatter them into corners, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men" (32:26). Isaiah adds that "with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people" (28:11) and that all other nations on earth will call them by a new name (62:2). Amos emphasizes: "For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations," (9:9) yet noting that this is not a final scattering: it is not certain that I will also crush the children of Jacob"; "not the least grain [will] fall upon the earth." Also, it is evident that in certain cases it involves a migration to a precise locale: "Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as beforetime," (2 Samuel 7:10). In other words, they would go to almost uninhabited areas where there were no Arameans, Babylonians, Phoenicians, Urartuans, Neohittites, Egyptians, Arabs, Persians, Phrygians or Lydians around them, as there had been up to the 7th century B.C. (see 1 Chronicles 17:7).

? The Direction of Flight ?

The Bible does mention the direction taken by the "Chosen People" to the north and north-west, and their arrival in the British Isles. Psalm 89:25 mentions the dominion of the descendants of David upon the sea! ... the phrase "I will set his hand also in the sea" signifies that the sceptre, the power, the very throne of David would be established in a country dominating the seas. Hosea is specific: "Ephraim herds the wind, and pursues the east wind all day long" (12:1), where the east wind (the sirocco) comes from north-east Assyria and blows to the north-west. Why does Isaiah (41:1) call on the "islands" to hear the message of the Lord? Why does Jeremiah (31:10) declare to the "isles afar off" that it will be the same God who scattered Israel, that "will gather him, and keep him"?

Dan would act in the same manner during their migration into north-east Assyria and later during their flight. In this way we can explain the fact that the whole region, extending from the Caucuses to the coasts and the islands of north-west Europe, passing through the plains of Russia and the Black Sea shores, is characterized by an incredible number of place names having the same root: the word Dan or one of its forms (Don, Den, Dn, etc). Consider: Dniepr, Dniestr, Don, Danube (or Donau), Daninn, Danaster, Dandari, Danez, Dan, Udon, Eridon, Denmark. But the progress of this expansion was not direct and without detours: first it was the western extremity of Europe and the British Isles which were flooded with immigrants: Dunkirk (the theatre of the wfamous battle during World War 2) in Flemish-Dutch means "church of Dan," and it is quite probable that this has to do with the change of an old Celtic temple, which kept the name of Dan, into a Christian church. In Great Britain we can cite Edinburgh, London, Dundee, Dunraven, and Aberdeen. In Ireland, where they arrived first (according to archaeological data and later traditions which preserve history) before moving on to Great Britain, we find: Danslaugh, Dansower, Dundalk, Dundrum, Donegal Bay, Donegal city, Dungloe, Dingle, Dunsmor, etc. Irish traditions even tell us that this island was first occupied by a certain Tuatha de Danaan ("tribe of Dan") who came from the east. This certainly does not indicate that this tribe was the only one to settle in Ireland, but that it is the only one whose name has remained to this day.

 Gilead and Reuben were two tribes who intermingled greatly. This is mentioned not just in Deuteronomy (3:12: "And this land, [which] we possessed at that time, from Aroer, which [is] by the river Arnon, and half mount Gilead, and the cities thereof, gave I unto the Reubenites and to the Gadites."); further, we have evidence which bears clear witness to the fact that these tribes were located to the east of the Jordan and the Dead Sea, where the Gaulonite and Jaoulan (Arabic) place names remind us (from Late Antiquity to the modern era) of their presence. Philemon, a contemporary of Aristotle, tells us that the Cimbrians (one part of them) called the Dead Sea "Mori Maroussa," as far as Cape Roub a. "Mori Maroussa" can mean Dead Sea in their native language!

However, since the accession of David and Solomon to the throne, there has been a continuous line of kings uninterrupted to our day, each crowned on the same throne; and so it will continue until the End of the Age. Solomon ( Hebrew Shlomo) "sat on the throne of the LORD as king instead of David his father" (1 Chronicles 29:23). The Queen of Sheba, sent by God, told Solomon that "because your God loved Israel and would establish them for ever, he has made you king over them" (9:8). This throne could be no other than the stone blessed by Jacob. To use the plain meaning of terms would surely make it absurd, and to ignore the Bible, to imagine Solomon sitting on a self-proclaimed "divine" or else "imaginary" throne. Such an interpretation would betray an attempt at a gnostic or Christian interpretation, which, if applied to a biblical text, would be criticized by modern scientists as devoid of all foundation. Most notably, Solomon did not sit upon the non-material (but very real) throne of the Lord.

Apart from that, there is a multitude of Biblical references to the throne which attest to these facts. It was not just any unimportant throne, and God through Nathan emphasized it, addressing David (speaking of Solomon): "I will establish the throne of his kingdom for ever" (2 Samuel 7:12?13), and later, "your house and your kingdom shall be made sure for ever before me; your throne shall be established for ever." (v.16) Evidently, the interest of Adonai assures us of the exceptional origin of the stone throne of Solomon; further, this demonstrates the possibility of its preservation among the lost and scattered Israelites, and its use as a throne by the heirs of David (and not as just any object). God, according to Psalm 89, stresses to David that "I will establish your descendants for ever, and build your throne for all generations." (v.4) Later in the same Psalm he repeats: "I will establish his line for ever and his throne as the days of the heavens." (v.30) Further on again, we read: "His line shall endure for ever, his throne as long as the sun before me. Like the moon it shall be established for ever; it shall stand firm while the skies endure." (vv. 36?37) We probably don?t need to harp on the fact of the preservation of the throne, since biblical references abound; it would also be absurd to expect the Messiah to sit on a non-existent throne, one that had not been preserved until his return and which is identical to the one destined for him and about which Isaiah informs us in his prophecies, where we see that this throne is that of David ("Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David, and over his kingdom?" Isaiah 9:6).

[Note: We received the following letter. The author is not a native-speaker of English and the meaning of part of what was written is not certain.
Nevertheless, there could be information of importance in this message. We have attempted to tidy up parts of it and left the rest more or less as it was.
Below is a portion of the letter and we may post more it out later]

<<Interestingly  some Jews served in Roman Forces, an example  is Flavius Josephus, who got a Roman name. Those Jews made maps i viewed, while many cannot believe their existence.
 Hebrew scripts and the old dictionaries from Jews attribute meanings in Hebrew  to Assyrian, Roman and German names and their dialects.
In maps of about 1 BC you can find Saxons with Angles and Frysians with Franks south of Danmark
respectively in Holland; according Jewish-German  officers or noblemen were serving as Franks which originally was  German semi-mixed tribal group including Jews, Romans, and Celts. Initially they were trade and elite cavalry and woodcut and guards men (each skill needed specialization even for Romans). The Saxons (Sax= a bow-formated gladiatorlike sword) originally were Southeast-Sweden folk once from Denmark, who as German tribe (old jew  info from that times!) also semi-mixed with Etruskians (gladiators?), Romans, Celts, other folks during their travels. Holland was invaded being then empty land. Due to a series wars between   Franks, Saxons, and Thuringians who were then were in  Thuringia and Sachsen-Anhalt region (West of ex GDR), the tribal chiefs formed a provisional court and decided that the Franks were to  move out to Terra-Belgica, the present Benelux (Belgium-Holland-Luxemburg region)...
