1. Tommy: "I will gather all nations against Israel." 
Re: Brit-Am Now no. 1173
Re: How Others See US
Yair,

"Sometimes it is our enemies who realize the truth before we do"  (?)  "an inner striving for this that they (Americans and Brits) themselves are not conscious of but outsiders feel?"

This phenomenon may be applied in reverse concerning Israel as the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy. The Others seek to invalidate it by claiming that Zionism arose and is sustained by religious types who consciously make it happen.  Yet they have their own "inner striving that they themselves are not conscious of."  Anti-Zionism is a totally irrational position for a truly objective observer to take. I have argued it many times and am amazed at how seemingly intelligent people don't see the irrationality of their position. Yet as these Irish intellectuals say; they and their ilk around the world all take this stance.  They have an inner striving that validates the Biblical prophecy that "I will gather all nations against Israel."  They unwittingly validate Biblical prophecy through their anti-Zionism ... while simultaneously rejecting the prophetic nature of Israel.

BRIT-AM Inline Blessings, etc - an Observation and Suggestion
From George HELON, ben Akhar ben ZEBULON: Australia
Shalom Yair -

I am writing to you once again with regard to BRIT-AM's ongoing Appeal for operational funding and I'd like to suggest that BRIT-AM's online statement [B'resheet (Genesis) 12:2-3] included at the foot of each BRIT-AM Now Bulletin be amended or revised completely, for in B'Midbar (Numbers) 22:12 it is written: "You are not to curse the people, because they are blessed."

Quoting a passage containing the word "curse" is akin to a preacher who is being ignored and says to his retreating audience "I will pray for you"; it smacks of, and is suggestive of a threat and religious fanaticsm.

D'varim (Deuteronomy) 28:1, "Adonai your God will raise you high above all the nations on earth" and "will order a blessing to be with you ... and in everything you undertake" (28:8).

How about:
BRIT-AM DEPENDS ON YOUR ONGOING SUPPORT AND OFFERINGS IN ORDER TO CONTINUE ITS WORK. HELP BRIT-AM TODAY, FOR THE LORD GOD "WILL MAKE OF YOU A GREAT NATION ... BLESS YOU, ... MAKE YOUR NAME GREAT (GEN 12:2)" AND A BLESSING WILL BE WITH YOU "IN EVERYTHING YOU UNDERTAKE (DEUT 28:8)."

Best regards,
George HELON, ben Akhar ben ZEBULON

================================================

Brit-Am Comment:
Originally we intended to insert only the first portion of the blessing
"AND I WILL BLESS THEM THAT BLESS THEE"
then we wanted to include the last portion of it:
"AND IN  THEE SHALL ALL FAMILIES OF THE EARTH BE BLESSED"

We were reluctant to unnecessarily delete portions of a verse and so included it all: 
AND I WILL MAKE OF THEE A GREAT NATION, AND I WILL BLESS THEE, AND MAKE THY NAME GREAT; AND THOU SHALT BE A BLESSING:

  AND I WILL BLESS THEM THAT BLESS THEE, AND CURSE HIM THAT CURSETH THEE: AND IN  THEE SHALL ALL FAMILIES OF THE EARTH BE BLESSED [Genesis
12:2-3].

You do however have a point and perhaps we should have only used the first portion or quoted only part of the whole, i.e.
AND I WILL MAKE OF THEE A GREAT NATION, AND I WILL BLESS THEE, AND MAKE THY NAME GREAT; AND THOU SHALT BE A BLESSING:

  AND I WILL BLESS THEM THAT BLESS THEE....
AND IN THEE SHALL ALL FAMILIES OF THE EARTH BE BLESSED [Genesis 12:2-3].

What particular verse we include is not especially important.
We definitely DO NOT intend to offend, threaten, or frighten anyone.
That is the last thing we need.
We ourselves are not at such a level that we can even think of going around and speaking to others in a way that even remotely may be construed as negative.
We do however sincerely believe that they who help us will be blessed because of it.
At the moment very few seem to want to receive such a blessing.



3. Brian Patmore: Biblical Names and Bagdad in Tasmania!
 From: Brian Patmore <manco_yupanqui@bigpond.com>
Re: Brit-Am Now no. 1173

Shalom Yair,
Good to see that balance is being sought in viewpoints.
With it we all grow.
Nice to see that people notice the place names of biblical significance in the countries of the Josephite group of nations.
People should note that the tribes would take the word of Hashem to the world and hold it dear to their hearts, at least it was so in past generations.

In Tasmania we have many including Jerusalem, Jericho and wait for it .....Bagdad !!! Funny stories regarding the municipal web-site receiving abuse from many people during the time of the Gulf Wars 1 & 2, and the poor people at the municipal chambers had to explain that this Badgad was in Tasmania !!

But this naming of places after biblical places should be expected and is a good healthy sign of the tribes, even if they are unaware of who they are, and could be said to vindicate Our Father in Heaven's Word and that of his holy prophets !!

It must be in the hearts of the people, even if many of them do not realize it as such and its significance.

All the best and may you all grow in the faith and love of Hashem !!

Mr. Davidiy,

Its been a while since I have written, and I apologize for that.  I wanted to thank you on behalf of my family for letting us come see you in November.  You were very gracious to let us come to you house.  My father who turns 72 this July is now on fire for your books and as much information about the 10 tribes.  For 5 years I've been talking to him about our Hebraic roots and he would nod, smile and then change the subject.  All of that changed when we spent two weeks in Israel, and especially after he met with you.

This got me thinking about setting up a seminar in the United States, in particular Florida.  I've recently been communicating with Cam Rea and he is all for the idea.  I also took the liberty to speak to your son, and I apologize ahead of time for not mentioning this to you earlier.

However, here is the framework of Cam's and my idea.  we set up a ... seminar in a location that can hold 150 + people.  Either in the greater Miami area or in Orlando...

The topics and times we could work out later, but I know this could work out and give great exposure.  You know how people are, seeing is believing.  It took my Mom and Dad coming to Israel and meeting you before that barrier came down.  If this is successful, we could use this model in other sites in the US and maybe in Europe.

  Hope I haven't taken to much liberty but I always wondered how did Victorian England get the idea into the mainstream?  This maybe a way, and then portions of the seminar can be placed on youtube, and even in the newspaper here in the US.  That is my idea in a nutshell  and look forward to hearing your opinion.

Brit-Am Comment:
Our aim at present is to make the trip within three months or so though things could change to make it earlier or to delay it. We hope to raise some money and settle up a few things in Israel before making the Trip.
At the moment prospects look a little bleak but this could change at any moment. Contrary to earlier intentions we will probably engage in as many lectures, talks, and meetings as possible right from the start.

6. Why People Do Not Support Brit-Am?
Before continuing let us make an important qualification to the heading:
People do support Brit-Am!
In fact they support it quite well when considered over a reasonable period.
We function.
On the whole we have been enabled to function reasonably well.
We maintain an office near the center of Jerusalem with office equipment we purchased.
We have published books and magazines and have more in preparation.
We have a good web-site we are frequently adding to and improving and which may well have been viewed by a million or more visitors since it was set up.
We have been doing this for some time.
We seem to have been going from one crisis to another but looking back we kept going forward.
There are also cycles to our enterprise with frequent ups and downs but usually along an incline that is mostly upward.

Nevertheless, lately due to Brit-Am needs and less-than-usual income we sent out a number of  Appeals which so far have met only with one or two modest replies though everything is very much appreciated and even a relatively little can make the world of difference.

We received a letter from a minister who asked to remain anonymous.
Taking this letter together with other points that have come up the following reasons may help explain why Brit-Am receives less support (at least, to our mind) than it should: 
================================================
================================================
(1. There is so much other information available for free that people feel that the information of Brit-Am should be as well or at least paid for by magazine subscriptions and book sales.
================================================
Brit-Am Comment:
Fair enough. It is free.
Most people do not pay anything and are not expected to.
We in effect rely on a very small number of contributors some of whom disappear and may (or may not) eventually be replaced by others and some of whom give relatively
little and not so often though everything is appreciated and of great value.
The aggregate value of small but regular donations in effect is very important.
================================================
================================================
(2. Our material is enjoyed by many who while sympathetic and interested do not
necessarily entirely agree with us. 
People prefer to support what they more completely identify with.
================================================
================================================
(3.  Aspects of our message touch on ancient history, ancestry, etc which though worth knowing do not really touch on the every day issues of the average person or help them meet the challenges of day-to-day existence.
================================================
Brit-Am Comment:
We disagree but if such is the impression created there may be little we can really do about it.
================================================
================================================
(4. People like reading the material but beyond that may be reserved.
Most veteran Americans have mixed ancestry to some degree or other.
Even those who do not may have a spouse who is or in-laws who are.
Brit-Am may give over an "exclusionist" message concentrating too much on one entity or alternately appearing too "Jewish".
================================================
================================================
(5. Many of those interested are committed "Christians" which may add an additional depth to their reservations about supporting an organization like "Brit-Am".


7. The Khazars and the Hebrew Name

The Khazars, Scotts, and Picts, and the Hebrew Name
The word "Hebrew" in Hebrew is "Ivri" or "ibri" from the root "aver, aber" connoting "other side. This is where the English words "over" and "other" come from.
"Hebrew" connotes someone who moves around, from one place to another, i.e. "a Wanderer".
The Ancient "Celts" of Britain, Irleand, and Western Europe called themselves Iberi meaning "Hebrew".
See:
Brit-Am Biblical Proofs: Biblical Names
The Name Hebrew


The Khazars were part of the Ten Lost Tribes.
The name "Khazar" is conventionally considered to derive from a root meaning "wander".
The same applies for the name "Scot" as in Scottish and Scotland.
This is the meaning of "Khazar", "Scot", and maybe "Alban" or "Albanach"

Quotation:
##The word "Khazar" is a Turkish word derived from the root of kaz with the meaning of gez (wander). The term of khazar means gezer (wanderer) and it coincides with the meaning of a nomad who freely wanders around without any connection to one place in the Anatolian Turkish. Probably, this word must have taken its final shape through an etymological transformation in the forms of gezer, gazar, kazar and hazar. The word of Khazar is used as el-Hazar in Arabian language, Huzari, Kozar in Hebrew language, Gazari, Chazari in Latin language, Hazari in Georgian language, Huszar in Hungarian language and Ko-sa, ka-sat in Chinese language.##
The name Khazar is therefore understood to connote "wanderer".
This is also the meaning of "Hebrew"
and one of the given meanings of "Scot" as in "Scotland".
cf.
Scott Surname Origin
http://www.searchforancestors.com/
surnames/origin/s/scott.php

A native of Scotland. Nennius uses both Scyth and Scotti indifferently. Strabo considers Scyth and Nomades synonymous terms. The original word in Ossian is Scuta, which literally signifies 'restless wanderer,' hence the propriety of the name Scuite or Scot.

Bleeker & CO., 1857.
Scotland
http://ruthandpete.com/scotland.html
The name "Scot" comes from an old Celtic word meaning wanderer or vagrant.
Scottish Myths
 By Robert Craig Maclagan (1882)

Scoti means "wanderers"
Says that "Albanach" (Picts) also connotes "wandering".

The Picts dwelt mainly in the Northeast of Scotland.
Traditionally they descended from the Agathyrsi and came from Scythia.
Agathyrsi was one of the earlier names of the Khazars.
The Picts either came from the Agathyrsi (Khazars) or an important element amongs them did.
