1. Rabbi Avichail Lecture on Web
From: Ruchamah
 Re: "Brit-Am Now"-1058
#4. Question on Rabbi Avichail etc.

Hey Yair, shalom brother,
 
I have been listening to some of the studies on Machon Meir website, and this morning I discovered that they had just added a video of a lecture by Rabbi Avichail. Thought you might be interested.   (top of page)

Franz Kobler
"The Vision Was There.
A History of the British Movement for the Restoration of the Jews to Palestine"
PART FIVE
CO-OPERATION WITH THE ZIONIST MOVEMENT
I. THEODOR HERZL AND HIS PROPHET
http://www.britam.org/vision/koblerpart5.html#Theodor

II. AT THE ARCHIMEDIAN POINT
http://www.britam.org/vision/koblerpart5.html#Archimedian
Extracts:
<<In a visit to Cardiff he met Colonel (then Lieutenant) Albert E. Goldsmid, Hechler's Jewish counter-part and the living embodiment of Daniel Deronda. The son of baptised Jews, on becoming aware of his origin he had embraced Judaism, studied Hebrew and participated in the foundation of the Hovevei Zion in England. He showed Herzl their flag with the emblems of the Twelve Tribes -a visible symbol of the tradition preserved from Manasseh ben Israel's days -and assured him not only that he himself would fight with Herzl for the liberation of Israel, but also that "devout Christians will help the Jews to return to Palestine". When Herzl recorded these words in his diary, he unconsciously sealed his allegiance with, the British Movement.

<<Now Theodor Herzl had come to London with another prophecy which was like the logical conclusion of Menasseh's prediction  -"England the great, England the free, England with her eyes fixed on the seven seas, will understand us. From this place the Zionist movement will take a higher and higher flight, of this we may be sure". A tone of respect, of recognition and admiration permeated all newspaper comments on the aims of Congress. "Palestine for the Jews" became the slogan of the day. The principles of the Restoration Movement were no longer tenets of sectarians. They had become a public opinion.

   <<Herzl's negotiations with the British Government at the beginning of the century were the very prelude of the great political drama which was to unfold during World War I and close with the issue of the Balfour Declaration. Tragically, it was not given to Herzl to take part in it. He died less than a year after receiving Lord Lansdowne's historic assurance, but he had lived long enough to see that England had indeed proved to be the Archimedian point of the Zionist movement.

Hello Yair,
 
Thank you so much for all that you do.  Your dedication to the 12-tribes has been an asset and a blessing.

I am not quite sure if they have the same understanding.
 
Thanks so Much,
Gayle

Answer:
I looked at the Video. It is interesting that People of African descent
have teamed up with Hispanicized Natives  to claim that they are Israelites.
Not only do they claim that they are Israelites but they claim they are the only Israelites.
These people are apparently anti-Jewish and anti-Anglo.
They are wrong and they are dangerous but there are many groups like this.
Apparently they are a mirror image of the White so called "Christian Identity"
Groups. Their terminology and doctrines appear to be the same
only their identifications differ.
 Anti-Semitic "Christian Identity" (off-shoots of British Israel in its
present anti-Semitic form) are partly responsible for the rise of these groups.

ANY group that claims to be Israelite but is against the Jews is false and is to be kept away from.
There is nothing much to be done in such cases however apart from those who
aware of Brit-Am and believe in Brit-Am conclusions to intensify their own Bible studies
and to support Brit-Am.
God bless you

4. Thomas Gray: US "going into hard times"
From: Thomas Gray <todagray@gmail.com>
Subject: Re: "Brit-Am Now"-1058

After reading the Jerusalem News posts about what President Bush told the government of Israel, the U.S. is going into hard times.  I already know that there has been an economic downturn following Annapolis, but the demands that Bush placed on Israel guarantee that it will not get better but worse.  Based on the trends I observed in my "History Lesson", which I believe show how the blessing and cursing of Israel works in actual practice, those in the U.S. need to be on the alert for extremely hard times ahead, if the two-state fiasco is pushed further.  I would urge U.S. citizens to make sure you do not vote for any presidential candidate who even thinks a two-state partition of Israel could be a good idea.

5. Answers to Questions from a Convert to "Reform" Judaism
Note in answers to the questions below we have deleted some of the personal observations by the writer since we do not
want to start up yet another inter-faith dialogue.

From: Daoine Sidhe Academy <brandydancer05@yahoo.com>

Subject: Questions For email list
I have some questions and commentary concerning the following from the FAQ page.
http://www.britam.org/Questions/QuesChristianity.html
 (1. The Lost Ten Tribes at this stage have the temporary status of Gentiles.

Do I understand correctly, based on the wording, that the tribes are eventually expected to return to Jewish status? or simply to Israel as pious Gentiles?

(2. Christianity may be seen as a tool of Divine Providence to bring the Lost Ten Tribes back to an ultimate reconciliation with Judah.

First, as in question 1, what does "reconciliation" mean?

Second, I wanted to express my personal story that indicates this is just so. I spent the better part of my youth engaged in what I can only describe as a "calling" to discover the pre-christian roots of my Irish spiritual heritage. In the process I became hostile toward christianity. In my maturity, I was again "called", rather grudgingly, to christianity and I became a leader of a liberal christian church.

It was later that I realized that my youthful search for my lost spiritual heritage was related to Israel and Judaism and I have since come full circle. Today, I am a Jew and an Israelite of Irish/Dan descent.

I believe that it was indeed divine providence that I was called to Judaism via christianity, but only in that christianity was a beacon.

(3. Christians in non-Israelite nations are often antagonistic towards Judah. On the other hand Israelites from the Lost Ten Tribes are often led by Christianity to believe in the Bible, to feel an awareness of Hebraic belonging, and a closeness to Judah and the State of Israel.

Does anyone else feel threatened by christian/messianic political interest in Israel?

I speak from experience that christians can be coldly hostile toward one another based on slightly differing theologies. I shutter to think what the evangelists who are coming into power in the US have in store for Jewish interests.

Answers:
(1. The Lost Ten Tribes will return and be reconciled with Judah and there will no longer be any difference between them (Ezekiel 37). Some Jewish sources indicate that the Lost Ten Tribes will convert to Judaism.
This will be in the Messianic Era or close to it. At all events it is not pertinent at present and not something that Brit-Am is concerned with.
(2. "Reconciliation" ultimately is what is described in Exekiel 37
http://www.britam.org/Ezekiel36to40.html#37
[Ezekiel 37:22] AND I WILL MAKE THEM ONE NATION IN THE LAND UPON THE MOUNTAINS OF ISRAEL; AND ONE KING SHALL BE KING TO THEM ALL: AND THEY SHALL BE NO MORE TWO NATIONS, NEITHER SHALL THEY BE DIVIDED INTO TWO KINGDOMS ANY MORE AT ALL.
"Reconciliation" for the time being as we see it involves RECOGNITION by Judah as to who the Ten Tribes are and by "Joseph" as to their own identity, their brotherhood with Judah, their responsibility towards Judah and themselves.
(3. On the whole Christian Evangelical support for Israel has been a blessing but it has also exacted a price.
One example of this price is the recent establishment of a kind of Christian "Disneyland" in the Galilee which is already being used here and there for missionizing purposes.
