6. THE HOUSE OF DAVID AND THE LOST TRIBES
1. Query from New Guinea
Dear Yair Davidy,
I have been following discussions, publications, and
articles related to the Lost Ten Tribes in the last
What makes me really interested to get to know about
the Lost Ten Tribes because in New Guinea island,
there are about 1,000 tribes having their individual
native language. Is it only a coincidence to have
1,000 tibes lvining in the second largest island in
the world after Greenland? Some tribes have their
legends, folklores, myths that are similar to the
story of the people of Israel. Taking for example,
from my tribe, Biak people, we have a legend about the
return of our cultural hero who has left, and will
return to reign over all the world. We believe that
there will be unity of all humankind, and there will
be no more sorrows and death.
Do you have any reference to the presence of the Lost
Ten Tribes in the South Pacific islands, especially in
New Guinea island?
Once there was a foreigner by the name of Yoshua
Christopher told my friend when they met by
coincidence in the train from Surabaya to Jakarta in
1997 that we the Papuan people are Ephramites.
We, in the West New Guinea, are still under
Indonesian occupation, whereas the people in the East
New Guinea are now becoming independent country Papua
We have our national symbol is the Morning Star.
Well ... that is all for now and look forward to
having your comments.
2. John Birch Society Behind Conspiracy Theories in Israel
Leading conspiracy conspirer Barry Chamish recently admitted that he supports
and is inspired by the John Birch Society.
He was speaking on
The Tamar Yonah Show (Israel National Radio/Arutz Sheva):
and his confession is recorded at:
The JBS produces some interesting and wholesome publications but it has an
agenda that is against
American-British culture and in my opinion detrimental to the Jewish one.
American-British and Jewish culture is in effect Biblical.
The JBS are more in line with an EU type orientation.
This holds nowadays for almost all Conspiracy theorists including British
Israel in the UK who sold their souls
a while ago and are hereby called upon to repent, change their ways, and
Recently an American Democrat made a speech claiming that the USA invaded
Iraq mainly to defend Israel.
This is not true but it does reflect a higher truth.
The ultimate good of Britain, the USA, and Israel are one.
The strength and welfare of Israel is to the advantage of Britain and the USA.
Even if Brit-Am beliefs were incorrect this would hold from an empirical
point of view.
Brit-Am beliefs however are correct and ultimately will receive recognition.
The good of Brit-Am is the good of Britain, the USA, and Israel.
Help Britain, the USA, and Israel by supporting Brit-Am.
Those who are aware of Brit-Am at present are not very many. Many have
other commitments and most do not
realize who important it is that Brit-Am be supported.
This awareness has been given to you at this stage for a reason.
If you do not support Brit-Am then Brit-Am may suffer.
3. Letter from Holland
Dear mister Yair Davidiy,
Some time ago I did read about your web-site. I did read and saw some of
your books about Israel before but I was astonished about the quantity of
your texts. From birth of I was grown up by your vision but it is good to
see that I'm not the only one on this planet who knows about it. Not that
I'm so full of wisdom but my father thought me about it. I know that what
you and I do know about Israel sounds strange for a lot of people but it is
good to know that we're not the only one. It is striking that I know about
the twelve tribes of Israel from different sources.
I suppose that you can't read the Dutch language but I want to name you the
title of a book about the migrations of the ten tribes till now. It is
named 'De migraties van de tien stammen', and it is written by my father.
He studied from about the mid-fifties of the last century to suppose to
this opinion. At the end he concluded that it must be right.
I'll end my short message by blessing you and the yours and wish you wisdom
to 'complete' your study!

4. Question on Tea Tephi
>Dear Mr. Davidiy,
>I've been studying the lost tribes for about a year now, and of all the
>books I've read (including a few of yours), Steve Collins' "Lost Empires
>of Israel" is the first one to suggest that the majority of the house of
>Israel to the west of the Jordan was not taken captive. He gives the
>explanations that many fled to Carthage and other Phoenician colonies, and
>that most of the rest just went north to Armenia. I remember reading in
>"The Tribes" that one of the prominent tribes in Scythia was Issachar, but
>he suggests that most were elsewhere. What are your thoughts concerning
>the Phoenician role in all this, and also, what are your thoughts on the
>claim that much of Zarah line of Judah ended up being the royal line in
>the isles, particularly at the time of the suggested arrival of Tea Tephi?
Stephen Collins gives his sources and we give ours. Overall our conclusions
Speaking for ourselves I consider the conclusions that Brit-Am reached to
with the Bible and with historical sources. There is always room for
revision and modification.
Concerning Tea Tephi and the Zarah line of Judah etc going to Ireland etc
this is all
a British Israelite construction based on not so-explicit Irish traditions
of a late date.
This does not mean it is wrong but it should require more proofs than those
available. It has become an article of faith rather than a piece of evidence.
The very nature of these studies lead to all kinds of hypothetical
and we also have indulged in them.
Nevertheless, our conclusions as presented in our publications, have been
based on facts
that are verifiable. There is a tendency amongst some people to let
take precedence over Biblical and historical sources.

6.THE HOUSE OF DAVID AND THE LOST TRIBES
(adapted from "Ephraim", ch. Six)
After exhorting the exiled Israelites to leave a traceable
path of "dolmens", Jeremiah (chapter 31) continues and describes how Judah
(i.e. the Jews) will also be re established. A New Covenant will be made
between God and the Houses of Israel and Judah. This Covenant will entail a
change of nature and will be set in the heart so that the will of God will
be instinctively known and performed:
Jeremiah ch.33;14 "..THE DAYS COME.THAT I WILL PERFORM THAT
GOOD THING WHICH I HAVE PROMISED UNTO THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL AND TO THE HOUSE
33;15 "IN THOSE DAYS.. WILL I CAUSE THE BRANCH OF
RIGHTEOUSNESS TO GROW UP INTO DAVID; AND HE SHALL EXECUTE JUDGEMENT AND
RIGHTEOUSNESS IN THE LAND.
33;17 "...DAVID SHALL NEVER WANT A MAN TO SIT UPON THE THRONE
DAVID had numerous sons. Solomon the son of David had 300
wives and 700 concubines and children were borne to him. Most of the kings
of the House of David had several children each of whom also would have
raised a family of his own. It follows that numerous offspring on the male
side must have belonged to the House of David. Descent through the male is
what Scripture, strictly speaking, requires in order for the descendants to
call themselves by the House of their (male) ancestor even though, in
Jewish Law, anyone borne of a Jewish mother is considered Jewish. The House
of David reigned in Judah and quite a few families amongst the present day
Jews trace themselves back to David. [e.g. Descendants of Rashi (1040
1105), Abarbanel (1435-1508), the family of Dayan in Spain and Syria as
well as the Maharal (1512-1609) and many others] Apart from descendants of
David who are to be found amongst the modern Jews there are others.
Numerous people from the Tribe of Judah were also exiled together with the
Lost Ten Tribes. The Sons of David had once been appointed as
administrators over all Israel (2-Samuel 8;18). Later members of the House
of David had intermarried with leaders of the Northern Kingdom and passed
over to live in those areas. In this and other ways descendants of David
must have penetrated the ranks of the exiled Israelites. An Aramaic
inscription mentions a "House of David" somehow in connection with Dan in
the Galilee. Before the exile of Northern Israel, there was a Judaean
entity known as Yadi in southeast Turkey which was attached to Judah in the
south, "he recovered Damascus, and Hamath, which belonged to Judah, for
Israel" (2-Kings 14:28). The rulers of Yadi had Hebrew names like Gabbar,
Bamah, Hayya, Saul, (Olmstead p.184) and maybe represented a minor branch
of the House of David. Yadi disappeared together with the northern Ten
Tribed Kingdom of Israel. Part of the Lost Ten Tribes became known as the
Sakae or Scythians. The Sacae-Scythians once had an independent kingdom
named "Sakastan" in eastern Iran. The ruling dynasty of Sakastan believed
itself descended from King Solomon the son of David. In Iberia (Georgia in
the Caucasus in southern Russia), which also belonged to the Scythians
there was too, a dynasty (related to the Arsacid Kings of Parthia) that
traced itself back to David. The ruling houses of the Sakae Scythians in
Sakastan and Scythia appear to have been interrelated and had familial
connections with the monarchs of the Guti (Goths) and Parthians and they
with each other. It follows that these too at least in part may well also
have been descended from David. From these monarchic and aristocratic lines
came the early kings of Scandinavia, of the Franks, and of the Anglo Saxons.
Enthusiasts in the past have adduced all kinds of genealogical
permutations in order to prove that the reigning house of Britain is
descended from an eastern princess named Tea Tephi (presumed daughter of
Zedekiah, king of Judah of the House of David) who married an Irish king,
whose descendants moved to Scotland and from there they eventually
inherited the English Throne. It may not be necessary to go back so far in
such an involved way to make the same point, and anyway the male line is
what counts. Another fount of the Davidic line may have penetrated West
European nobility via France! There was once a semi-autonomous Principality
in Narbonne (southern France) described by Arthur J. Zuckerman (A Jewish
Princedom in Feudal France, 768-900, New York, 1972). It was ruled by a
Jewish Prince of the House of David whose offspring intermarried with the
aristocracy and Royal Line of France and these with that of Normandy,
Scotland, and England. Amongst the Welsh, Scottish, English, and other
groups in Europe there were families who believed they descended from King
David of Judah.
It therefore follows, that (theoretically at least)
present-day descendants of David may be extremely numerous. Compare this
possibility with the following verse:
Jeremiah 33:22: <<AS THE HOST OF HEAVEN CANNOT BE NUMBERED,
NEITHER THE SAND OF THE SEA MEASURED: SO WILL I MULTIPLY THE SEED OF DAVID
MY SERVANT, AND THE LEVITES THAT MINISTER UNTO ME.....
David was promised that the Rulership over Israel (or at least
part of it) would come from him:
JEREMIAH 33:25: <<...IF MY COVENANT BE NOT WITH DAY AND NIGHT,
IF I HAVE NOT APPOINTED THE ORDINANCES OF HEAVEN AND EARTH;
33:26: <<THEN WILL I CAST AWAY THE SEED OF JACOB,
AND DAVID MY SERVANT, SO THAT I WILL NOT TAKE OF HIS SEED TO BE RULERS OVER
THE SEED OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB: FOR I WILL CAUSE THEIR CAPTIVITY TO
RETURN, AND HAVE MERCY ON THEM.
Literally speaking, the promises to David and to the Levites
do not necessarily mean that they will always have rulers and ministers
over the Houses of Israel. Rather, the Biblical promises may be understood
to state that descendants of David and Levi will always be available to
fulfill their ancestral functions whenever the Promised Messianic Order
shall be instituted or whenever the Children of Israel are worthy.
Even so, it may be that many of the Rulers over the exiled
Israelites and those who ministered to them in Britain, America, and
elsewhere are (and were) descended from the Houses of David and Levi.
One authority (Ramchal) says that in the Last days the Lost Tribes will be
led by the Messiah son of David BUT most sources say that they will headed
by a descendant of Ephraim whereas the Messiah son of David will first
appear amongst Judah. The two halves of Israel will re-unite as prophesied
by Ezekiel 37 and the other Prophets. No-one really knows how these events
will come about and we can only wait and see. In the meantime we should all
do the best we can, for ourselves and for Brit-Am.
The Book of Obadiah contains prophesies against Edom. Edom is
identified as Germany and ancient Rome and sometimes as Europe in general.
Obadiah says that in the Last Days:
The House of Joseph shall destroy the House of Esau (1:18).
The Talmud (Baba Batra 123; b) says that only Joseph is capable of
defeating Esau. The British and North Americans have proven themselves
capable of defeated the combined forces of Germany, Italy, and other
European nations along with Japan. These countries did have descendants of
Esau amongst their ruling classes and general population.
[Obadiah 1:20] AND THE CAPTIVITY OF THIS HOST OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL
SHALL POSSESS THAT OF THE CANAANITES, EVEN UNTO ZAREPHATH; AND THE
CAPTIVITY OF JERUSALEM, WHICH IS IN SEPHARAD, SHALL POSSESS THE CITIES OF
According to the Commentators, in the above verse "Canaanites"
means Germany, Zarephath means France and Britain, Sepharad means Spain.
The verse should be rendered from the Hebrew original and in accordance
with the Major Commentators as the following:
[Obadiah 1:20] AND THIS FIRST EXILE OF THE TEN TRIBES OF ISRAEL [Rashi] WHO
DWELL FROM GERMANY [=CANAANITES, Iben Ezra], EVEN UNTO FRANCE [=ZAREPHATH,
Rashi, Iben Ezra, Radak, Abarbanel, Daat Sofrim] AND ENGLAND [= ZAREPHATH,
Abarbanel] (or the Far Northern Extremities in general, Nachmanides) AND
THE CAPTIVITY OF THE JEWS OF JERUSALEM IN SPAIN [=SEPHARAD, Targum
Yehonatan] SHALL POSSESS THE CITIES OF THE SOUTH.
Taking the Classical Commentators as a whole we see that the
Lost Ten Tribes were considered to be in the west, especially in France and
Britain. According to the Geneva Bible of Calvin on Obadiah 1:20:
"By the Canaanites, the Jews mean the Dutchmen, and by Zarephath, France,
and by Sepharad, Spain."
At all events "Zarephath" meant France (Rashi) and the north
or France and Britain (Abarbanel) together. The verse was understood as
saying that the Lost Ten tribes were in "Zarephath" (Rashi, Nachmanides).
