1. New Article
'Reclaiming Anti-Semitism' Refuted

http://www.britam.org/reclaiming.html
Yair Davidiy on behalf of Brit-Am counters an attempt to hijack the struggle against anti-Semitism to the anti-Jewish pro-Arab Quisling Cause.



2. Georgia and Gog and Magog
Mark A. Robinson wrote:
 

Yair, I read a 2003 article from the http://www.ChristianMediaResearch.com (an organization with which I am unfamiliar) that stated:
 
"After the Soviet Union restructured in the Gorbachev-Reagan era, the Russian pronunciation of the capital of Georgia ?  Tiflis ?  was dropped, and the nation took back its ancestral name of Tblisi. In the Georgian dialect, the ethnic suffix isi means 'the land of.' Furthermore, in that same ancient dialect, which is unique among linguistic groups, the consonants T and B are specifically separated by a gutteral U sound. The actual verbalization of Tblisi is 'Tuh-ooh-ball-ee-see.' In short, the name literally translates as 'the land of Tubal.' This is the capital of the modern republic of Georgia."
 
The article went on to say: "We have also previously identified  'Gog' with the former Soviet republic of Georgia (read GeOrGia).... even as the provincial name of the military base historically associated with that city is Mtzkheta ? the Meschech found in [Ezekial 38 & 39]."
 
This sounds very reasonable to me, but I am no lingusitic expert. Can you comment on this? Mark A. Robinson




Brit-Am Reply:
I am also not familiar with the organization behind the URL and a very quick glance did not tell me much.
Anyway these kinds of interpretation are well-known and in part probably well-reliable.
Tblisi could well be named after Tabal and in Assyrian times there was a people known as Tibareni or Tabal (the "l" and '"r" could interchange) in the region.
There was also a people known as Mechek ("Moshki") there and the name Mtzkheta is an ancient one and probably does derive from the MOshki or Meshek.
Concerning the identification of Georgia with "Gog" a major province of Georgia was known as Gogarene.
See the Maps below:
First two maps prepared for Brit-Am by Estelle Schutte:

Despite these possibilities we incline to look for Gog elsewhere.
See our notes:
Gog and Magog
http://www.britam.org/Questions/QuesGog.html
At all events the possibilities are interesting and worth keeping in mind as we follow world events.
