Anecdotes of Arab Belief in Conspiracy Theories:
Israel still looks good, warts and all
by Greg Sheridan
But for the purposes of this analysis, a meeting Indyk describes in 1998
between Clinton and Crown Prince Abdullah of Saudi Arabia is most instructive.
This was at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Indyk writes:
Abdullah leaned across the table and explained to Clinton in a hushed voice that
he had information that Monica Lewinsky was Jewish and part of a Mossad plot to
bring the president down because of his efforts to help the Palestinians. He
told the president that he intended to share this intelligence with senators he
would meet after lunch in an effort to help forestall his impeachment.
This anecdote echoes one of a generation earlier told in Henry Kissinger's
memoir, in which Kissinger holds a formal meeting with a Saudi ruler who tells
him the world is beset by a global communist conspiracy, which is a mere part of
the broader global Jewish conspiracy.
The Indyk and Kissinger anecdotes, each astonishing in its way, confirm the
pervasiveness of Arab anti-Semitism and that it is not wholly a construct of
Arab regimes for internal political purposes but is to some extent genuinely
believed in Arab societies.
The above two examples are actually relatively mild compared to the Conspiracy
Fantasies regularly promoted by Arab Media.
2. Question on the
Greeks, Sparta, and the Tribe of Simeon
From: Nathan Proud <email@example.com>
Subject: Simeon in the wilderness
I'm pretty certain you've read Steve Collins' books. I'm currently writing
about possible Israelite movements before and during the Exodus and I'd like to
get your opinion. I know you focus mainly on the Assyrian exile itself, but
what is your opinion concerning Simeon in the wilderness? Their population
drops by 63% between the first and second census, so Steve contends they left
the camp and went to Greece and founded Sparta. He references one of the
Apocryphal books that shows the Spartans/Lacedaemonians as being related to
Judah and the high priest confirming that.
Considering the Achaeans, a.k.a. Danaoi of Danaus, brother of Aegyptus, arrived
there while Israel was under Hyksos rule and/or shortly before the Exodus, it
seems to make sense that many Simeonites fled there to join their brothers in
Greece after their dispute with Moses.
It seems to make further sense to say that the Dorians who arrived around 1200
BC were another wave of Danites. One source called the Dorian invasion the
"return of the sons of Heracles"
Historians get baffled by the ancient invasions and why there is little
difference between the peoples involved. It makes sense to me to consider they
were all Israelites.
Do you have an opinion on this?
This matter is dealt with in part in our book
"Lost Israelite Identity. The
Hebrew Ancestry of Celtic Races"
This work at present is out of print but we may be publishing an updated
version soon online. Stay tuned.
As for the Tribe of Simeon and Sparta.
This is one of the points in which we disagree with Steven Collins.
In principle, there are sources suggesting that Israelites settled overseas
before the Assyrian Exile. We however prefer to avoid
these considerations wherever other explanations are possible.
Walter Baucum however has written on this subject:
"Bronze Age Atlantis.The International Nautical Empire of the Sea Peoples"
The Sages said that the diminution in the numbers of Simeon was due to their
involvement in the Zimri affair.
Zimri the son of Salu from the Tribe of Simeon publicly copulated with a
Midianite princess (Numbers 25:6, 14).
As a result there was a plague in which 24,000 of the Children of Israel
This decline was attributed at least in part to the plague occasioned by the
action of Zimri.
Other explanations may be possible.
Simeon and Levi: Similar but still Different.
We also think that Asia Minor (present-day Turkey) and Greece were conquered by
Danites and other Israelites at one stage though the actual numbers of Hebrews
who remained in the area was small.
By Yaakov Deutsch
##The tribe itself
suffers from a drastic decline in numbers: from the first census in the desert,
in which the tribe numbered 59,300 (Numbers 1:23), the tribe shrinks to a
population of only 22,200 (Numbers 26:14) at the time of the second census, a
decline of more than 37,000!##
The Spartans claimed to be related to the Jews due to a common descent from
The Romans also suggested a similar relationship.
This is found in the Book of Maccabeens and in the history of Josephus.
In our opinion a leading element amongst the early Spartans and Romans came from
Esau (i.e. from
Edom) brother of Jacob and therefore descended from Abraham.

3. Question on the Transport of
Israelite Exiles overseas in
Philistine and Phoenician Ships
I have a question from your article titled "The Lost TEn Tribes in Prophecy"
Part 2, it was posted on nobsnews.org previously.
In it you wrote"
"The Lord GOD hath sworn by his holiness, that, lo, the days shall come upon
you, that he will take you away with hooks, and your posterity with
fishhooks." (Amos 4:2)
That is how it is translated in the King James BUT The word translated as
"HOOKS" in Hebrew is "Tzinot" meaning fleets of ships or "great ships" and the
word translated as FISHHOOKS in Hebrew is "Sirot-dugah" meaning
Now, I looked up hooks and fishing hooks in Strong's Concordance and in Brown
Driver Briggs, and it only says: hooks, barbs, meaning dubious, shield
buckler, fishing hook, cauldron, etc.
Can you point me to some type of resource that would show the literal Hebrew
meaning of "Tzinot" and "Sirot-dugah" that would show that it means "fleets of
ships, or great ships" and "fishing boats"?
Thanks very much for your time Yair, and great work
This analysis was first propounded in our work
our book "Lost Israelite Identity. The Hebrew Ancestry of Celtic Races"
This work at present is out of print but we may be publishing an updated
version soon online.
The translation we proposed was valid. Nevetheless new information suggests a
[Amos 4:2] THE LORD GOD HATH SWORN BY HIS HOLINESS, THAT, LO, THE DAYS SHALL
COME UPON YOU, THAT HE WILL TAKE YOU AWAY WITH HOOKS [Hebrew "tsinot" i.e. Large Ships], AND YOUR
POSTERITY WITH FISHHOOKS [Hebrew "sirot-dugah" i.e. Fishing Boats or Boats shaped liked a fish and named "Fish-Boats"].
We understood this verse to be complementary to other verses and sources showing
that part of the Ten Tribes were destined to be exiled
in Phoenician and Philistine (Minoan) vessels in the service of Assyria over the
sea to Spain and the West. New findings have since confirmed this conclusion.
Rabbinical scholars (Abarbanel, Metsudat Tsion) explained that tsinot means a
type of ship.
The word "Tsi" means a large ship. [In Modern Hebrew it means "fleet of ships"].
"Tsinot" in my private opinion is a plural of "Tsi". I base this opinion on an
analysis of the passage.
Elsewhere in the Bible the plural of "tsi" is "tsiyim" (Numbers 24:24 Daniel
"tsiyim" however is masculine.
As an inanimate object "tsi" could be rendered as either masculine or feminine (Iben
In Amos 4:2 for euphonic and contextual reasons it has to be feminine.
Normally the feminine form might be rendered as "tsiot" but the option of
inserting an "n" sound (again for euphonic reasons) also exists.
And so we have "tsinot".
Unfortunately this explanation so far only relies on my own opinion but
(assuming we are correct)
God willing confirmatory evidence will become available.
As for "sirot-dugah" this is translated as "fish-hooks" in the KJV where "dugah"
means "fish" and "sirot"
is said to mean "hooks" i.e. literally "hooks-[for]-fish". Some Rabbinical
commentaries would agree with this.
Nevertheless, Targum Yehonatan, Rashi, Radak, and others agree that it means
In the Mishah "dugit" means a type of fishing-boat.
In Cyprus in Roman times a certain type of very large ship was known as a fish
because of its shape [Phoenician ships were also shaped to resemble a fish].
Cyprus had once been under Israelite control and for much of its history was
largely Phoenician in
The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia

Daniel 11:30, tsiyim Kittim, "ships of Kittim.'

Mediterranean ship types

The first picture shows Cretan ships with the image of a fish on their prow.
The ships of Crete were those of Minoas. We will show that the Philistines used
these ships and that the terms Crete,
Minoa, Philistia are interchangeable.
Amos condemns the Phoenicians (i.e. Trye Amos 1:9) and the Philistines (i.e.
Gaza Amos 1:6, Ashekelon, Ashdod, Ekron, THE PHILISTINES Amos 1:8) for turning Israelite Exile over to Edom.
The Phoenicians and Philistines used their ships to transfer Israelite Exiles
4. Question Concerning Beowulf and
I have been working on an engineering degree. I am currently
taking care of the prerequisites. I have been in a debate over the origins of
the poem, Beowulf. I cannot find very much info on the Brit Am site concerning
this Topic, and I am somewhat skeptical of the conventional explanations. I
have a certain feeling that this work, Beowulf is a very important work and
has a level of significance to the lost ten tribes due to the apparent fact
that it predates christianity and comes from a region that has been identified
What is the opinion of Brit Am concerning this work? if any, Thank you, Robert
Somewhere amongst my papers I have the photocopy of a Ph.D. thesis drawing
between the thought-processes in Beowulf and Jewish religious thought.
Going from memory I did not find it particularly convincing.
We did however intend to write an article on this subject and one day may get
around to it.
The examples given seemed to be too general to draw specific conclusions.
The struggle between good and evil, the evil impulse inside of us reflected by
an external enemy, etc, for all I know have a universal application and may be found in several
Beowulf dates from ca. the 600s CE or later.
Based on memory:
##In the poem, Beowulf, a hero of the Geats, battles three antagonists:
Grendel, who has been attacking the mead hall in Denmark called Heorot and its
inhabitants; Grendel's mother; and an unnamed dragon. The last battle takes
place later in life, after returning to Geatland (modern southern Sweden), where
Beowulf has become king. In the final battle, Beowulf is fatally wounded. After
his death he is buried in a barrow in Geatland by his retainers.##
It is the earliest Anglo-Saxon poem known to us but nevertheless is quite
sophisticated and suggests
a body of Literature that must have preceded it.
Beowulf is a great poem both for its content matter and its style.
The style in my opinion shows a definite tendency to imitate Homer or later
Greek and Roman writers
who wrote in the style of Homer. There are also details in the story that show
with Classical Writings.
The author of Beowulf also refers to "Old Testament" themes (such as Cain son of
Adam and Eve and the first
murderer) and was influenced by the Book of Daniel and possibly also by other
He ignores the "New Testament" and no Christian influence is evident.
[That does not mean that the author was not a devout Christian but it is
The vocabulary of Beowulf is a northern Anglian dialect related to Anglo-Sxon
but different from it.
Many of the words are similar to Hebrew but the same may be said of Anglo-Saxon
tongues in general.
A study of Beowulf from a Brit-Am Ten Tribes perspective is probably not going
to add much that is substantive
to our overall understanding but it could help to reinforce a general
This also could tie in with our study of the Khazars.
The Khazars were of Hebrew origins and part of the Ten Tribes.
They eventually became Jewish but before doing so there was an intermediate
phase in which Jewish influence
The Khazars were concentrated in southern Russia but offshoots were also to be
in Scandinavia and in the early Anglo-Saxon ambit.
The Khazars were related to the Anglo-Saxons.
The influences felt by the Khazars must also have extended to other peoples as
perhaps this is reflected by Beowulf?
5. Local Newspaper mentions "Bronze Age

Bronze Age Atlantis.
"Bronze Age Atlantis
Commercial empire, not romantic Eden, Gooding author writes

Baucum's book rethinks what he calls a sensationalized and romanticized
version of Plato's Atlantis. "The real riddle is not where the realm of
Atlantis lay," he wrote in a statement promoting the work, "nor when its island
capital sank beneath the sea, but rather that almost no writer has found, or
even looked for, the key that the text of the tale itself repeatedly offers: the
story as told by Egyptian priests to Solon, who brought it back to Greece, was
derived from original records contained in ancient Egyptian temple inscriptions
and papyrus texts."
Baucum writes about Atlantis as a vast oceanic maritime trading empire based
on metals, and he supplements the account with extensive footnotes, glossary,
bibliography, index, maps and illustrations. He aims to give readers a better
understanding of the Bronze Age, the people who controlled it, their island
capital and the reasons for its collapse in 1200 B.C.--not thousands of years

Note: This work also deals with Israelite settlement in the West
and Hebrew contacts with European areas before the Exile from Assyria.
Even if one disagrees with this the evidence is of value and acceptable
concerning an Israelite Presence in the said areas. We just move the dates back.
