2. All Letters (unless expressly
requested otherwise) on Brit-Am Matters May be published!!!
NOTE: All letters to Brit-Am are liable to be posted on one or other of
our regular features UNLESS a specific request is attached saying otherwise!!!
In principle Brit-Am is a public forum providing a public informational service.
In the same way that if one writes to the editor of a newspaper it is to be
expected that the editor may publish the letter (according to his discretion) in
the paper, so too with us.
In one way or other the Brit-Am message daily reaches thousands of interested
people. Many of them have questions they would like to ask but do not do so.
They also have opinions of their own and sometimes unvoiced criticisms of
We assume that every question, opinion, or criticism, or item of information,
etc, we receive may be of interest to others in addition to the person sending
We may or may not publish any communication received by us unless expressly
We do not to publish. Our reasons for not publishing do not necessarily reflect
our opinion of the communication received.
The reason for not publishing may be arbitrary or prosaic: Perhaps we have
already received too many letters on the subject?
Perhaps the letter will arouse other questions we do not want to deal with at
present? Perhaps others may be offended?
Perhaps we are simply not up to our usual dynamic super-alert state of
We should not be expected to explain to anyone our decisions on these matters.
certain pastor (who was also then a personal friend) once sent us a letter
containing points on religious matters.
We did not post it.
He wrote to us.
We evaded an answer.
He rang up a mutual friend in Israel.
The friend rang Yair.
said the letter contained controversial religious comment beyond our sphere of
The friend received another call from the Pastor and rang
The friend said, Delete the controversial sections.
We did and posted an expurgated version.
The pastor accused us of dishonesty and misrepresentation and hinted that
henceforth potential support for Brit-Am (that it had been indicated we might
receive) was about to suffer, and indeed the previously hoped-for support never
materialized from that direction.
in Central Europe?
Peace again Yair,
And thanks for the material.
I feel the need to talk about my own opinions, including the gut feelings for
which I have little proof but nevertheless, it comes from legends and small bits
In my understanding, Europe as far as males go is 40% Japhetic, 5 % Chamitic and
55% Semitic. I think all three lines are pretty evenly distributed, with
Japhetites being mostly Gomer Magog and Meshek in the North and Javan Tiras and
Tubal in the South. Madai mostly remained in Asia.
As for Shem, for the sake of simplicity let's say I think his descendants are 5%
Asshur (mostly among Germans and Russians - there's this thing about "tsar"
coming from Assyrian "Sar"), 5% Elam (mostly among Slavs), 5% Lud, Aram and
various Arfaxad (probably everywhere) 5% Peleg and Eber (mostly the Balkans, the
Danube valley and Iberia and maybe Italy, all places of Pelasgian fame), 5% Esau
and other Abraham and Lot (probably everywhere) and 30% Israel and Judah (mostly
in the West). But I wonder if the prediction about Issachar doesn't apply to the
whole of Central Europe, since we've been all pretty lazy and stubborn asses in
good land and all the time under two empires tearing us apart.
4. Henry Rhea: "Special Knowledge" and
the Chosen People
Re Brit-Am Now no. 1430
#2. Reactions to Edgar M Leonard Sr.
#(a) Damon Casale: *Everyone wants to be the chosen people.*
Right on to Damon Casale: "Everyone wants to be the chosen people."
You have hit it right on the head! That goes hand in hand with my
response some months back about "special knowledge" seeming to
"elevate" its holders above the rest, that being what appeared to be
the attraction to all the conspiracy nuts to the Brit Am message,
thus bringing them to your attention in greater proportion than are
actually among us here in America. And likewise, among people so
attracted to the Worldwide Church of God of which I was once a part
and Herbert Armstrong's message of Israelite descent.
The Bible says that Israel is the Chosen People. Both Judah and Joseph are
That is what the Bible says.
Being Chosen involves obligations beyond those expected of the not-chosen.
Whether or not people are attracted to the idea of the Chosen People for reasons
of their own is besides the point.
If one does not believe in the Bible or disagree with how we interpret it then
that is another problem.
As for Conspiracy Theory Freaks we will deal with this at more length elsewhere.
Suffice to say that adherents to these disreputable notions are unfortunately
quite numerous amongst conservative and fundamentalist circles in general.
Brit-Am is no exception. If anything, we are less infected than other groups and
have more or less succeeded in cauterizing ourselves against this menace.
The Worldwide Church of God historically provided a service in helping to spread
consciousness of the Lost Ten Tribes.
They and their offshoots have their own forums for discussion but those of them
who come to us are more than welcome.
5. Proverbs 18 (New King James Version)
1 A man who isolates himself seeks his own desire;
He rages against all wise judgment.
2 A fool has no delight in understanding,
But in expressing his own heart.
3 When the wicked comes, contempt comes also;
And with dishonor comes reproach.
4 The words of a man's mouth are deep waters;
The wellspring of wisdom is a flowing brook.
5 It is not good to show partiality to the wicked,
Or to overthrow the righteous in judgment.
6 A fool's lips enter into contention,
And his mouth calls for blows.
7 A fool's mouth is his destruction,
And his lips are the snare of his soul.
8 The words of a talebearer are like tasty trifles,[a]
And they go down into the inmost body.
9 He who is slothful in his work
Is a brother to him who is a great destroyer.
10 The name of the LORD is a strong tower;
The righteous run to it and are safe.
11 The rich man's wealth is his strong city,
And like a high wall in his own esteem.
12 Before destruction the heart of a man is haughty,
And before honor is humility.
13 He who answers a matter before he hears it,
It is folly and shame to him.
14 The spirit of a man will sustain him in sickness,
But who can bear a broken spirit?
15 The heart of the prudent acquires knowledge,
And the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.
16 A man's gift makes room for him,
And brings him before great men.
17 The first one to plead his cause seems right,
Until his neighbor comes and examines him.
18 Casting lots causes contentions to cease,
And keeps the mighty apart.
19 A brother offended is harder to win than a strong city,
And contentions are like the bars of a castle.
20 A man's stomach shall be satisfied from the fruit of his mouth;
From the produce of his lips he shall be filled.
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
And those who love it will eat its fruit.
22 He who finds a wife finds a good thing,
And obtains favor from the LORD.
23 The poor man uses entreaties,
But the rich answers roughly.
24 A man who has friends must himself be friendly,[b]
But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
