Yair, Shalom and greetings to you. I want to thank you for the fabulous article
on the unicorn/ra-eim. What a fantastic read it was. The information provided
seems pretty conclusive that there was indeed a one horned animal that the Torah
speaks of in Devarim 33:17. The ancients it would seem, were usually quite
literal when they depicted animals of the day that were around them.
What I found most interesting was the Black Obelisk picture of both King Jehu
and a unicornish type animal being brought in tribute. I can't imagine the
Assyrians being fanciful depicting the gifts being brought to them in obeisance
to King Shalmaneser. Hollywood was not even invented at this time! The
depictions of the obelisk also prove that a Hebrew King named Jehu actually
existed, much to the challenges by atheists and others of their ilk who deny the
veracity of the Torah/Tanach.
I would appreciate more articles like this. I absolutely devour information from
archaeology, Rabbinic writings, Medieval banners and even hostile witnesses to
the existence of Israel, both ancient and today. As we draw closer to the coming
of Mashiach and the Acharit Yamim [End of Days], we shall see the truth come out
about HaShem's plan for the Tribes of Israel. That which is ridiculed and
violently opposed shall indeed become self evident.
Shalom, Bill Rasmussen
2. Do Jewish Leftwing Types Harass

Could the "harassing" of Ephraim by Judah mean things like the efforts of George

The relevant verse is,
13 Also the envy of Ephraim shall depart,
And the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off;
Ephraim shall not envy Judah,
And Judah shall not harass Ephraim.

This verse speaks of "Ephraim" (the Ten Tribes) and "Judah" (the Jews) as
remaining separate entities sometimes antagonistic to each other right up to the
If 80% of American colonists came from Scotland, then why are so many
places in New England named after places in East Anglia and not
Scotland? For example, Norfolk, VA is obviously from Norfolk Co. in
England. I have seen several names in New England that reflect place
names from East Anglia but few that reflect Scottish names. Perhaps most
Scottish people who first settled New England were actually prisoners
and place names were applied by a minority of British who were not
prisoners. This does not seem to be likely because the kings of England,
during the first settlements of America, were Scottish (Stuarts).
The relevant passage says,
We found a predominance of Manasseh entities that in the past were to be found
in Scotland. More than 80% of the founding settlers of the USA came from
Scotland and related areas in the North and West of Britain.
We did not intend Scotland alone. We also included the north and west of
Our sources was Calvin Kephart, "Races of Mankind, their Origin and Migration",
New York, 1960.
Kephart relied on early statistical evidence.
In our book, "Joseph. The Israelite Destiny of America"
we quote from David Hackett Fischer (see item #5. below) and Linda Merl (an
Irish Genealogist of some note) concerning the British Isles and
Stan Nadel about Germany.
Not only did the early migrants to America come from specific areas BUT also
they usually belonged to definable social groups who in a Tribal sense appear to
have been distinct from the rest of the population.
It may be as you say that people from Anglia were important at the very
beginning but in the first century what relative proportion did they constitute?
Within English Anglia itself are there any sociological distinctions pertaining
Perhaps here too they may also be identified as belonging to Manasseh?
4. Additions to Unicorn article.
Re Unicorns Did Exist!!
A few corrections and additions have been made to the article.
This implies that King James wished to associate his kingdom with Israel in the
James-i (1567-1625) of England had previously been James-vi of Scotland.
James-i (1567-1625) of England was also known as James-vi of Scotland.
Before becoming the King of England and Scotland together he had ruled over
Scotland. He did indeed bring the unicorn symbol from Scotland to England and is
said to have referred to himself as king of Israel.
The Unicorn Represents Joseph:
HIS GLORY IS LIKE THE FIRSTLING OF HIS BULL, AND HIS HORNS ARE LIKE THE HORNS OF
UNICORNS: WITH THEM HE SHALL PUSH THE PEOPLES TOGETHER TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH:
AND THEY ARE THE TEN THOUSANDS OF EPHRAIM, AND THEY ARE THE THOUSANDS OF
MANASSEH [Deuteronomy 33:17].
In the above verse it says:
HIS HORNS ARE LIKE THE HORNS OF UNICORNS: WITH THEM HE SHALL PUSH THE PEOPLES
The Hebrew says in literal transliteration,
# The Horns of a Unicorn [Raem] are his horns, with them peoples will he but
together as one...#
The Hebrew could be read also as saying,
# The Horns of a Unicorn [Raem] are his horns, with them as one, peoples will he
Notice the possible combination, "his horns, with them, as one".
This could hint that the two horns have become one which may have been a known
phenomenon amongst some species of Raem.
This is only a suggestion. It may sound far-fetched but it is consistent with
the Hebrew and fits in with the rest of the evidence.
Perhaps it was a type of auroch, i.e. a gigantic wild bull (now extinct) with
only one horn?
Alternately it may have been a species that usually had two horns but in some of
its sub-species the two horns would grow together to become one?

Albion's Seed: Four British Folkways in America by David Hackett Fischer.
I was wondering if you had ever heard of (or even read) Albion's
Seed: Four British Folkways in America by David Hackett Fischer? I
don't remember that there was anything relating to the Ten Tribes but
it is an interesting history of how early USA was settled by peoples
from England and Scotland. I heard about it listening to a sermon
online. The gentleman mentioned that Herman Hoeh had recommended it to
him. I found it to be very interesting and recommend it if you have

Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
