1. Orjan Svensson:  The Swedes are and were a Sea-Faring People

Finbland though
>>some Swedes may have participated in Viking expeditions.


I don't know why you write that some Swedes "may have participated in Viking expeditions".
There exist in Sweden lots of rune stones from the Viking period which mention people who died or had been (travelling mainly by boat) in Serkland (probably somewhere south or east of the Caspian Sea or northern Africa) see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serkland_Runestones, England see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/England_Runestones and Greece see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greece_Runestones.
These runestones are written in a language similar to modern Swedish, i.e. not in Semitic language like the OLDEST rune stones, that I write about in my book "Scandinavian Secrets".
So there exist lots of evidence that testifies that Swedes did in fact participate in lots of Viking expeditions.

You write also that Sweden has not been known as a sea faring nation. That could be correct to a degree when compared to some other nations. But today there are more boats per capita in Sweden than in almost every other country. There are today in Sweden a boat park estimated at 1.3 million 'pleasureboats', see http://www.ibinews.com/ibinews/key_mkt_facts/index.htm.
In Sweden there is one boat for every 7 people. In Denmark they have only one boat per 15 people, in the UK only one boat per 107 people and in Germany only one boat per 108 people.

Brit-Am Reply: Thank you for correcting us on this point.
The Viking burial ship found at Sutton Hoo in English  is considered by some
to perhaps have come from Sweden.
cf.
"The armour at Sutton Hoo appears to be Swedish, or at least it is made in the Swedish style."

2. The USA and Joseph vis a vis Judah Reflected in the Speech of President Bush
On May 15, 2008 President George Bush of the USA addressed the Knesset in Israel.
The full test of the speech may be seen at:

#2. Speech of President Bush to the Knesset
Office of the White House Press Secretary
May 15, 2008
The period in which President Bush held office so far on the whole has been good for Israel. This is despite the so-called "Disengagement" which hurt us very much and which was due at least partly to American pressure. President Bush and Condoleeza Rice have also given the impression that they are trying to force Israel to make concessions it should not have to and that might endanger the State of Israel altogether.
Whatever the case, president Bush came to Israel as a representative of the American People.
He made an impressive speech containing elements that justify the beliefs of Brit-Am and reflect the Roloe of Joseph as the USA (i.e. Joseph) sees it and which are worth noticing.
Those who wish to see the speech in full make go to the URL above.
Below are a few highlights we consider worth emphasizing:

Extracts:
Shalom. Laura and I are thrilled to be back in Israel. We have been deeply moved by the celebrations of the past two days. And this afternoon, I am honored to stand before one of the world's great democratic assemblies and convey the wishes of the American people with these words: Yom Ha'atzmaut Sameach.

Sixty years ago in Tel Aviv, David Ben-Gurion proclaimed Israel's independence, founded on the "natural right of the Jewish people to be masters of their own fate." What followed was more than the establishment of a new country. It was the redemption of an ancient promise given to Abraham and Moses and David -- a homeland for the chosen people
Eretz Yisrael.

Eleven minutes later, on the orders of President Harry Truman, the United States was proud to be the first nation to recognize Israel's independence. And on this landmark anniversary, America is proud to be Israel's closest ally and best friend in the world.

The alliance between our governments is unbreakable, yet the source of our friendship runs deeper than any treaty. It is grounded in the shared spirit of our people, the bonds of the Book, the ties of the soul. When William Bradford stepped off the Mayflower in 1620, he quoted the words of Jeremiah: "Come let us declare in Zion the word of God." The founders of my country saw a new promised land and bestowed upon their towns names like Bethlehem and New Canaan. And in time, many Americans became passionate advocates for a Jewish state.

....When Americans look at Israel, we see a pioneer spirit that worked an agricultural miracle and now leads a high-tech revolution. We see world-class universities and a global leader in business and innovation and the arts. We see a resource more valuable than oil or gold: the talent and determination of a free people who refuse to let any obstacle stand in the way of their destiny.

....Israeli soldiers swear an oath: "
Masada shall never fall again." Citizens of Israel: Masada shall never fall again, and America will be at your side...

They [
muslim extemists] accept no God before themselves. And they reserve a special hatred for the most ardent defenders of liberty, including Americans and Israelis.

And that is why the founding charter of
Hamas calls for the "elimination" of Israel. And that is why the followers of Hezbollah chant "Death to Israel, Death to America!" That is why Osama bin Laden teaches that "the killing of Jews and Americans is one of the biggest duties." And that is why the President of Iran dreams of returning the Middle East to the Middle Ages and calls for Israel to be wiped off the map.

...Jews and Americans have seen the consequences of disregarding the words of leaders who espouse hatred. And that is a mistake the world must not repeat in the 21st century...

Some people suggest if the United States would just break ties with Israel, all our problems in the Middle East would go away. This is a tired argument that buys into the propaganda of the enemies of peace, and America utterly rejects it. Israel's population may be just over 7 million. But when you confront terror and evil, you are 307 million strong, because the United States of America stands with you. (Applause.)

Sixty years ago, on the eve of Israel's independence, the last British soldiers departing Jerusalem stopped at a building in the Jewish quarter of the Old City. An officer knocked on the door and met a senior rabbi. The officer presented him with a short iron bar -- the key to the Zion Gate --  and said it was the first time in 18 centuries that a key to the gates of Jerusalem had belonged to a Jew. His hands trembling, the rabbi offered a prayer of thanksgiving to God, "Who had granted us life and permitted us to reach this day." Then he turned to the officer, and uttered the words Jews had awaited for so long: "I accept this key in the name of my people."
Over the past six decades, the Jewish people have established a state that would make that humble rabbi proud. You have raised a modern society in the Promised Land, a light unto the nations that preserves the legacy of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob. And you have built a mighty democracy that will endure forever and can always count on the United States of America to be at your side. God bless.




3. Secular Evidence: Physical Similarities

Proofs in Simplified Outline
Peoples of Israelite Descent will most likely have similar physical characteristics to those of their ancestors.

Physical Similarities
Proofs in Expanded Format

Physical Types are determined by a combination of environment and hereditary. There are indications that in some cases the physical appearance of certain peoples changed. The early North Amerindians may have looked more like "white" men than they did later. The same applies for certain peoples in Central Asia. Nevertheless, all other things being equal the researcher after a "lost" people should logically seek to find them amongst one or other of the nations that more or less look like they once did.
We cannot be sure what the Ancient Hebrews looked like but some evidence does exist. Archaeological findings from the Land of Israel and depictions of what appear to be Ancient Israelites by surrounding nations as well as a few Biblical Passages and related sources allow us to make tentative conclusions concerning their appearance. They contained elements of both dark and fair peoples. Their hair coloring could sometimes be blond, or red, or brown, or black. In some areas one or other of the different types predominated over others. On the whole they were a European type people approximating in their physical appearance to something between the present-day Jews and the inhabitants of the British Isles.
