1. D.H. Lawrence and American National Character
Preliminary Note by Yair Davidiy:
I became acquainted with D.H. Lawrence (1885-1930) due to having to read one of his books as part of my English Literature Studies in High School.
I do not like him. Not only because I have a naturally "prudish" streak but also because of his style of writing, his contempt for women,  and what he was.
D.H. wrote "Lady Chatterley's Lover". This is a pseudo-pornographic work that was published when pornography was not widely available and was effectively censored.
"Lady Chatterley's Lover" was considered in its time to have some literary value. As such the book was used by "progressives" to break the power of censorship and to put us in the mess we are in at present.
The now-acknowledge homosexual tendencies of Lawrence appear to have been conventionally down-played at the time when homosexuality was still less than fashionable.
D.H. also had fascist tendencies and may have been pro-Nazi.

Nevertheless he was a writer with some artistic talent and powers of perception.
If we have to live with the cesspool he helped create we may be excused for considering other works of his that may have redeeming features.
Writers and artists that gain public recognition in some ways reflect the Soul of the People.
They give expression to the Age they live in and/or to the communities they emerge from.
The following extracts are from his analysis of the American Character which in our opinion dove-tails with the Brit-Am description of Manasseh as applied to the American reality.

It should also be pointed out  that Lawrence was English (though his name is Welsh) and pro-German.
His perspective is therefore that of England and Old Europe. His analysis of the American Character is negative and wrong but a few of his insights may be worth noting.

 
D.H. Lawrence on the essential American soul
The essential American soul is hard, isolate, stoic, and a killer. It has never yet melted.

     --D.H. Lawrence in Studies in Classic American Literature, ch 5

Chapter 1 - The Spirit of the Place
Selected Extracts:
The old American art-speech contains an alien quality, which belongs to the American continent and to nowhere else.

Let us look at this American artist first. How did he ever get to America, to start with? Why isn't he a European still, like his father before him?

He didn't come in search of freedom of worship. England had more freedom of worship in the year 1700 than America had. Won by Englishmen who wanted freedom, and so stopped at home and fought for it. And got it. Freedom of worship? Read the history of New England during the first century of its existence.

Freedom anyhow? The land of the free! This the land of the free! Why, if I say anything that displeases them, the free mob will
Iynch me, and that's my freedom. Free ? Why, I have never been in any country where the individual has such an abject fear of his fellow countrymen. Because, as I say, they are free to Iynch the moment he shows he is not one of them.

Those Pilgrim Fathers and their successors never came here for freedom of worship. What did they set up when they got here? Freedom, would you call it?

They didn't come for freedom.

They came largely to get away - that most simple of motives. To get away. Away from what? In the long run, away from themselves. Away from everything. That's why most people have come to America, and still do come. To get away from everything they are and have been.

'Henceforth be
masterless.'

Which is all very well, but it isn't freedom. Rather the reverse. A hopeless sort of constraint. It is never freedom till you find something you really positively want to be. And people in America have always been shouting about the things they are not. Unless, of course, they are millionaires, made or in the making.

And after all there is a positive side to the movement. All that vast flood of human life that has flowed over the Atlantic in ships from Europe to America has not flowed over simply on a tide of revulsion from Europe and from the confinements of the European ways of life. This revulsion was, and still is, I believe, the prime motive in emigration. But there was some cause, even for the revulsion.

It seems as if at times man had a frenzy for getting away from any control of any sort. In Europe the old Christianity was the real master. The Church and the true aristocracy bore the responsibility for the working out of the Christian ideals: a little irregularly, maybe, but responsible nevertheless.

Mastery, kingship, fatherhood had their power destroyed at the time of the Renaissance.

And it was precisely at this moment that the great drift over the Atlantic started. What were men drifting away from? The old authority of Europe? Were they breaking the bonds of authority, and escaping to a new more absolute unrestrained- ness ? Maybe. But there was more to it.

But there sits the old master, over in Europe. Like a parent. Somewhere deep in every American heart lies a rebellion against the old parenthood of Europe. Yet no American feels he has completely escaped its mastery. Hence the slow,
smouldering patience of American opposition. The slow, smouldering corrosive obedience to the old master Europe, the unwilling subject, the unremitting opposition.

Whatever else you are, be
masterless.

What did the Pilgrim Fathers come for, then, when they came so gruesomely over the black sea? Oh, it was in a black spirit. A black revulsion from Europe, from the old authority of Europe, from kings and bishops and popes. And more. When you look into it, more. They were black, masterful men, they wanted something else. No kings, no bishops maybe. Even no God Almighty. But also, no more of this new 'humanity' which followed the Renaissance. None of this new liberty which was to be so pretty in Europe. Something grimmer, by no means free-and-easy.

America has never been easy, and is not easy today. Americans have always been at a certain tension. Their liberty is a thing of sheer will, sheer tension: a liberty of THOU
SHALT NOT. And it has been so from the first. The land of THOU SHALT NOT. Only the first commandment is: THOU SHALT NOT PRESUME TO BE A MASTER. Hence democracy.

'We are the
masterless.' That is what the American Eagle shrieks. It's a Hen-Eagle.

Every continent has its own great spirit of place.

Perhaps at the Renaissance, when kingship and fatherhood fell, Europe drifted into a very dangerous half-truth: of liberty and equality. Perhaps the men who went to America felt this, and so repudiated the old world together. Went one better than Europe. Liberty in America has meant so far the breaking away from all dominion.

Henceforth be mastered.

2. The Book of Hosea and Scotland?
From: forresterg
Re:   The Book of Hosea

                The Book of Hosea  Is speaking to  "The Scott- Irish " people, the blessing promised in chapter 14 was realised when Scotland left Baal [ Spanish /Phonecian /Egyptian ] Catholicism and embrace the ref ormation.  Prior to this they were tormented by crop failure and famine and war with the English. They sometimes sought refuge in Germany /Assyria to their detriment Hosea 11. Relief came to this" Branch of the Hebrew " family when they migrated to America as Presbyterians.All their sins in their native Scotland is highlighted in the book of Hosea.           Best Regards      George

3. Dave Browning:  "The Children of Joseph"
Re "Brit-Am Now"-1078
http://www.britam.org/now/1078Now.html#78Question
#4. Question from Someone of  Irish Jewish-Identifying Descent
Extracts:
Dear Yair,

I wanted to offer some comments on this subject:

S wrote:

...So, your writings have fascinated me, and I would like to think I am of the children of Joseph- but my confidence is lacking. If you can suggest a course to take to investigate, I would greatly appreciate hearing it.
*
Thank you for your writings, and for listening, and for your best advice.
Sincerely,
S*

If another novice may be of help to you Sir, perhaps it is me. When I first learned of this idea, as you, I was quite intrigued. Suddenly a lot of things began to make sense, amazingly these odd, Ancient riddles, they say are nothing but primitive superstition, began to take shape. Not shape in the spiritual sense, but the carnal one; on the earth we live on Now.

Not only can we say the spiritual implications of Scripture have created a moral atmosphere which maintains and nurtures civilization itself, which without this spirit; civilization would be a scarce critter indeed, but we can demonstrate how these texts of thousands of years have a very real significance in the tangible, carnal world of today.

Suddenly, when we see that 10/12ths of this Israel of the Bible are still loose somewhere on this world today, and that the modern landscape... Western Europe, The United States, Briton, Australia, South Africa, Canada... an Ireland *smile* all do have a place in Scripture...

From the flesh to the spirit is a deadly leap to the logical thinker, however the Almighty has shown us the flesh, how these ancient riddles... are real, in the tangible, carnal facts. Now the scientist, or critical thinker has tangible evidence that reveal another dimension to Hashem's truth as testified to in the Hebrew Scriptures. The details of this are becoming ever clearer, as we speak.

Over the years I have learned that while some Lost Tribes proponents definitely have gotten some of the details wrong, the general idea is still, once one sees it, overwhelmingly awesome. It is so blindingly simple... once its seen.

I noticed your question is about the Irish, and I too have Irish blood...

How much Israelie blood is in me? I do not know, but I do know my ancestors got around. I suspect very strongly so did these rebellious sons of Israel, who got lost in the shuffle of many a bloody, torching session. The point being anyone of European descent probably has some of these lost, rebellious genes coursing through their veins. Certainly more than you knew was there before you saw this revelation.

We do not know with any certainty how many (individual people) of the Northern Tribes were carried away to the land of the Medes. We know from Assyrian records it was at least ~25 thousand, but there is strong logic to suspect that number is more in the hundreds of thousands range. However, taking only 25,000, one can distribute an infinite amount of genetic information, given the right circumstances and area of distribution.

This point being, since the Northern Tribes never returned to their allotments in Israel, it is only common sense to recognize they went somewhere, and there really is no other place on this earth except northern Europe for them to go, nor to look for them. Once you start looking at it, you see it, it isn't the magic many Christians have come to rely upon, it is just common sense.

So really, how much pure Israelie blood you have in you isn't important, you are likely to have some but thats not the real significance in this. The significance is, to any logical, rational mind, that the promises of Hashem are kept, beyond our wildest dreams. BUT they are KEPT, and in that you can see an intelligence that spans several thousand years in operation, for real, in the flesh as well as Spirit, on earth and in Heaven.

Anyway Bro, I hope this helps.

P.S. I have always considered the Celts to be of Japheth origins, as well as the Greeks and Romans. Reading articles here on Brit Am and elsewhere I have been led to the possibility that some of the Northern Tribes could easily have been confused with, or merged with the older Celtic lines as their migrations into northern Europe proceeded. I need to study it more.

love,
Davey

4. Brit-Am Does More than Anyone Else!
Further to our dispute with Dell Griffin.
http://www.britam.org/dell.html
Dell Griffin said:
"IT HAS ALSO IRKED ME THAT YOU ARE SUCH A DO-NOTHING...WITH NO COMPASSION OR FEELING FOR THE JOES LIVING IN POVERTY AND OPPRESSION AROUND THIS GLOBE WAITING FOR SOMEONE IN AUTHORITY TO BRING THEM HOME."
If Brit-Am thought the Lost Ten Tribes were in Third-World Countries "LIVING IN POVERTY AND OPPRESSION", we might reach out to them but this is fortunately, on the whole, not the case.
Apart from that, we lack a mandate to bring the Lost Tribes "home".
Our task is to tell them of their origins and to tell others including Judah.
If anything we are perhaps forerunners of Elijah
http://britam.org/malachi.html
[Malachi 4:6] AND HE SHALL TURN THE HEART OF THE FATHERS TO THE CHILDREN, AND THE HEART OF THE CHILDREN TO THEIR FATHERS, LEST I COME AND SMITE THE EARTH WITH A CURSE.
Brit-Am works at making Lost Israelites aware of who their forefathers were.
This is quite a lot.
It is a beginning and it is not easy.
We work at making this knowledge known and acceptable to as many people as possible.
Our activities include Biblical Studies, ongoing researches, publication of the relevant research of others,daily communications with those who are interested and open forums where all (or most) relevant issues may be clarified, along with almost any activity we have the means for and that may be conducive to spreading this knowledge.
Our message  does reach thousands of people both on a one-time or short-term basis as well as those who participate with us in intensified comprehensive studies extended over a period of time.
We do all this all this with virtually no staff and on a very limited budget that sometimes places severe constraints on our ability to function.
That is more than "nothing" in our opinion.

5. Question on the term "Caucasian"
Sheri  wrote:
 

I'm an American... Did you know that on all our Gov't. forms, especially as I was growing up, there was and still is on some forms, the race option of  "Caucasian" ?  Is that because some of the ten lost tribes ancestors had not lost their understanding that their ancestors hailed from the Caucasus Mountains at some point in their past?
 
thanks
sheri




Reply:
There is an interesting article on the racial term "Caucasian" in Wikipedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caucasian_race
The term "Caucasian" is now generally applied to white people in general.
It was once supposed by German scholars that the white race had originated in the Caucasian Mountains.
This supposition has since been discredited but the term remains.
We in Brit-Am were always reserved about use of the term since it was associated with the old mistaken belief that all white people descend from Japheth son of Noah.
A portion of the Lost Ten Tribes at one stage were indeed in the Caucasus Mountain area where they aligned with descendants of Japheth and others living in the region.
