1. Kobler Continued - More Available, Extracts.
Franz Kobler
"The Vision Was There.
A History of the British Movement for the Restoration of the Jews to Palestine"
PART ONE
 THE BEGINNINGS OF THE MOVEMENT
http://www.britam.org/vision/koblerpart1.html
================================================
 I. PIONEERS AND MARTYRS
http://www.britam.org/vision/koblerpart1.html#PIONEERS
================================================

II. MESSIAHS AND PROPHETS IN THE GREAT REBELLION
http://www.britam.org/vision/koblerpart1.html#MESSIAHS
Extract:
Although Begley's attribution of Jerusalem Regained to the author of Paradise Regained has proved erroneous, Nova Solyma shares with Milton's writings the blending of English Hebraism with the humanistic spirit. Gott's synthesis was evident also in his presentation of the Restoration idea. He was the first Englishman to liberate it from the narrow bonds of the theological tract and to clothe it in a literary, indeed, an artistic form. This notable transmutation was effected by yet another synthesis: the combination of the English predilection for Utopias with the English yearning for the Restoration of the Jews. Nova Solyma is not a "Nowhere" like Thomas More's Utopia, nor a "Somewhere" like Bacon's Nova Atlantis -it is, beyond doubt, Zion itself. It is Israel -gathered and restored- that lives there in a model commonwealth conceived in the spirit of Puritan Christianity and Miltonian humanism. In the twilight of the fateful year 1648, while in Eastern Europe the Jewish masses were set in motion by an outbreak of the most cruel persecution, there shone for a moment -though unnoticed by the Jews, and scarcely observed by the Gentiles- the mirage of a revived Land of Israel.

III.
MENASSEH BEN ISRAEL'S ANSWER: RESTORATION THROUGH READMISSION
http://www.britam.org/vision/koblerpart1.html#MENASSEH
Extract:
Through personal contact with frequent visitors from England and by an extensive correspondence with the Puritans,
Menasseh ben Israel, had acquired a thorough knowledge of the British Restoration Movement. He knew that some of his Puritan friends shared with him his interest in the fate of the Ten Tribes of the Israelite Kingdom. With the rising expectations of the approaching Millennium this question had assumed a more and more topical character. For, since the return to the Holy Land had been promised to the whole people of Israel (and not to Judah and Benjamin alone), the Restoration, as many believed, could not take place unless the Lost Tribes participated in it.
================================================

IV. "ANNUS MIRABILIS" AND SABBATAI ZEVI
http://www.britam.org/vision/koblerpart1.html#ANNUS
Extract:
One leaflet after another dealing with the Messianic event appeared and was sold out immediately. The most fascinating of them was A New Letter from Aberdeen, sent to a Person of Quality, published by R.R. and dated 26th October, 1665. The correspondent is anxious to acquaint the addressee with "the proceedings of the Israelites, in this juncture of time, wherein scarce anything else, is either talked of, or looked after, in comparison of them".  The major item of news which he conveys to London is about a ship which had called at Aberdeen, bound for Amsterdam, with Jews on board bearing written reports about the victorious encounters of the Jews with the Turks. The writer even states that the sails the ship, made of white branched satin, bore in red characters the inscription THESE ARE OF THE TEN TRIBES OF ISRAEL.

#1. Brit-Am Commentary to the Book of Hosea
http://britam.org/hosea1.html
 

Hello Yair!
    Greetings and God bless you this New Year! I have a confusion about Gomer (of Hosea). If Abraham is a Shemite, descended from Shem, and Gomer a Japhethite (descended from Japheth), how can we associate Gomer with Israel? I am confused. Did the Israelites descend from Shem or from Japheth? Please help me here! Thanks and many blessings to you and your work, Randy Thompson

Brit-Am Reply:
You are referring to our Commentary to Hosea chapter one where Hosea takes a woman named Gomer and begats three chiodren.
The children are given names denoting the fate of the northern Israelites in Exile
and their eventual reconciliation. This theme is repeated and returned to elsewhere in the Book of Hosea.
We identified Gomer with Nations descended from Gomer with whom the Exiled Israelites became attached.
They did not however intermix entirely with them but rather absorbed cultural aspects and shared in their migratory movements.
The Israelites descended from Shem and remained on the whole descendants of Shem but they absorbed cultural traits from Gomer of Japhet and interacted
with them.
