1. Basic Optional designs for Cover of new book
Pre-publication offer.

http://www.britam.org/cover.html
http://www.britam.org/cover3.html
There are two options but in the end we may use neither of them.
A decision should be reached within a day or so.
In the pictures you may see the primary elements for the new cover.
The pictures will be changed a little and the arrangement of the lettering altered.
The color scheme will be almost the same.
The basic concept and impression we wish to create should be more or less as you see it now.
Your reaction, criticisms, etc are welcome.
Your feedback is almost all we have to go on.
Do not be offended if we do not follow whatever advice you may give but rest assured that it will be appreciated, considered, and perhaps put into effect at a later date.

A very important and interesting work.



2. Book Links Irish to Arabs and North Africans
This has probably been posted before but when we wanted to refer to it we could not find it so have decided to post it again.
Bob Quinn, "The Atlantean Irish. Ireland's Oriental and Maritime Heritage",
Dublin, is an expansion of Bob Quinn, "Atlantaean: Ireland's North African & Maritime Heritage", London/NY, 1986.
Quote from page 14:
The ideas in Atlantean were originally greeted with good humor?
'Are you the fellow that says we're all Arabs? Commented a judge in Kinvara, Co. Galway, before dismissing a minor charge against me. He added, glancing wearily around the miscreants in his court:
'I'm sure you have found plenty of confirmation for your theory today.'

#3. In Praise of Judah

Dear yair,
For the message group if you deem it suitable, and if my errors, if i make any, are not too stark.
Regarding the email "In Praise of Judah", I am glad that, relatively speaking, Britain has not been as anti-semitic as it might have been, or compared with other nations, especially since the 1700s. Our role in the facilitation of the establishment of the Jewish State is evident and clear, hardly something we would have supported, one would have thought, if we had been overtly anti-semitic. I am perhaps more ignorant than I should be about how we broke our promises after WWI, but I shall try to look into this issue. Perhaps for understandable reasons, however, we did not particularly appreciate being targeted, I imagine, by Jewish forces during the period of our jurisdiction, and this might have cooled our enthusiasms. But I am no expert.

I would like to point out, however, what seems to me to be a mistake in your quoting of the Tanakh/Old testament regarding this line:

    The second is that God promised that in the
Jews "shall all families of the earth be blessed."
As I had thought this was a reference to the children of Abraham (or Abram as he was then) (Gen 12 1-3), not just to the Jews. 

I realise two things in relation to this. First, that not all of Abraham's children in Scripture have the same status. For example the blessing to the children of Ishmael are less than those to Isaac, just as those to Esau are less than those to Jacob's 12 sons.

 But this is what the verse says. Even if we consider only the children of Israel to be a blessing to the families of the earth, we should remember, shouldnt we(?), that Judah was just one of 12 children of Jacob and that the 'Jews' are drawn predominantly from Judah, Benjamin and some Levi. Second, that Judah does have a special staus in relation to that of his other brothers in accordance with the blessings of Genesis 49.But then, on the other hand, so does Joseph.

As far as Im concerned, triumphalism of particular children of Israel over the others is not something that I would think particularly useful or helpful at this juncture in history.

God bless
Jonathan




Brit-Am Reply:
The note you refer to was written by Hal Lindsay not by us.
If we post out the letters or mini-articles, or articles of others it does not mean we agree with everything we say.
It does mean that we consider what they have to say of potential interest and value and worth reading.
Your letter brought up the following points:
a. What did Britain do wrong in regard to the Jews?
b. The problem of one group being more "chosen" than others.
Answers:
a. Concerning the British and the Jews to put it succinctly:
The British began to be too pro-Arab at the expense of Judah and this at a time
when Judah was more vulnerable than it had been previously.
If you have read our work "The Tribes" you will already have gained
an overall view of what the problems between the two were.
See also our recent article on
Zionism from a Brit-Am Perspective
http://www.britam.org/Zionism.html

b. Genesis 12:1-3 was indeed the blessing to Abraham and is applicable to all the Tribes of Israel.
Each Tribe has its own task and each group its own destiny.
The blessings they each received are in accordance to their destiny and part of what they need to fulfill it.
For example, someone who is destined to be great musician may be born with exceptional musical talent and brought up in an environment encouraging the development of that talent.
Unjust?
I think not.
Just Divine Providence.
The following article traces the blessings from the forefathers through their sons to the Tribes and to Judah and Joseph.
Queries about Joseph
#3. Question: The Line of Sucession: How Did Joseph Receive the Blessings?
http://britam.org/Questions/QuesJoseph.html#Receive
Joseph in a sense is more blessed than others.
See:
Judah was also destined to fulfill his own task and was blessed in accordance.
Judah and the Question of the Ten Tribes of Israel
http://www.britam.org/judah.html

 [Isaiah 61:9] AND THEIR SEED SHALL BE KNOWN AMONG THE GENTILES, AND THEIR OFFSPRING AMONG THE PEOPLE: ALL THAT SEE THEM SHALL ACKNOWLEDGE THEM, THAT THEY ARE THE SEED WHICH THE LORD HATH BLESSED.
There were times in history when the above prophecy was partially fulfilled both concerning Judah and "Joseph" and the other tribes.
From the context this verse applies to both "Joseph" and Judah but the emphasis of the verses that follow could be understood to indicate that Judah is especially intended.
