1. The Origins of Non-Israelite Peoples
I have a bad nature. I dislike advertising the works of others whilst still struggling to sell my own.
Nevertheless, truth be told, if you want to know about the non-Israelite peoples of the world you should go
first to the work of Craig White,
"In Search of ... the Origin of Nations"
This book gives good information and overall introduction as to almost every people on earth.
In some cases on a few minor points we may disagree with Craig but even in those cases as a starting point
we find his work to be indispensable.
He also happens to be a friend and ally of ours but even if he was not we would still value his work.

2. Brit-Am Call of the Wild
Brit-Am in many ways is as pro-Jewish as they come as well as being almost equally fanatically pro-British and pro-American and pro-other nations (such as Norway and Denmark) that we perceive to contain substantial numbers of Israelite descendants. These positions are not so difficult to hold, neither are they contradictory. The good of the one entity nearly always entails the good of the others. The problem is that the parties concerned do not always see it that way. The Lost Ten Tribes today are mainly technically "Gentiles" and consider themselves as such. Many of them have a "Gentile-orientated" mentality. This seems to require them to join the other Gentiles (the real ones) and gang up on Judah.  Even though these "Lost Tribes of Israel" nations contain many pro-Jewish elements, as well as nearly all the real friends the Jews have, their governments and much of their societies have been taking increasingly anti-Jewish positions. This is against the Message of the Bible. It is not what the Almighty wants from the Israelite Peoples.  Now the so-called Quartet (The USA, Russia, the EU, and the UN) want to get the Jews out of the West Bank, meaning out of Judea and Samaria, and meanwhile to stop having babies. They are backing the Arabs who openly declare that they want all the Jews to stop living altogether? not only in the "West Bank", but everywhere else.

There is a lot that can be done to combat these negative tendencies and better people than us are trying to do it.
We can however still do something.
We can increase awareness of Israelite ancestry amongst the Ten Lost Tribes.  We can also let more of Judah be aware as to where the Lost Tribes really are.  This message when presented in a Brit-Am format has the possibility to empower those  who already are looking for a reason to act on behalf of the Israelite Nations and of Judah. It may also awaken others to also do so. In at least a few cases this very message has also proven its ability to cause erstwhile adversaries to think again, repent, and correct their attitude and actions.
Getting this message out may therefore work towards alleviating the situation.
How can we get this message out more?
Even with a limited budget we could increase our presence on the web, put out more magazines, booklets and books, make tours overseas, and work in several other directions. In this day and age all this may be done with a relatively modest outlay. What not so long ago may have cost a small fortune to carry out today may be done "on the cheap" and done well.
Even so just to begin still costs something.
Even to continue our present modest scale of operations also entails meeting operational expenses.
Recently we made an appeal partly in order to enable us to make a tour to the USA. It was originally intended to make the first journey more or less a private "pilot trip". Now, if the trip becomes possible, we intend to make it a tour giving talks where possible and where we are invited to do so. The tour will still be a short one but others may well follow in its tracks. First however it has to take place. We need to keep functioning. The response to our recent appeal was a positive one and has helped us to some degree. It was not however sufficient enough to take us "over the hill" and seems to have since died out.
We therefore urge you all to do what you can to help Brit-Am and to let us know that what help is on the way.
Every little bit helps. The funds needed are relatively modest but they are still needed.
Please do what you can.
May the blessing of the Almighty God of Israel descend on all of us and upon all our peoples.

3. The Oral Law is Needed Just to Read Scripture!!
In the original text of the Torah according to Nachmanides there was no punctuation and no breaks between words. It was all written in one straight line....All the divisions we have of Scripture, which letters form which words, sentences, etc, etc, are all ultimately based on the Oral Tradition.  Every now and again "Purists" (who often do not know Hebrew or know it only partially) come along and say we have to get back to the written text and throw out all the oral traditions. The Problem however is that without the Oral Tradition we would not even know what the Written text said. It would all be nothing more than a jumble of incoherent letters.

4. Finland and Brit-Am Identity: Notes by  Ope Tuslapsi with a few Brit-Am Remarks

(1) Preliminary Information collated by Brit-Am:
The Finnish nations is divided into several sub-sections.
In the east are the Karelians (Carelians)
Concerning the Karelians see:
Finnish Physical Anthropology
"According to the 1930's popular theory, Roschier said that the forefathers of the Carelians had arrived to the Lake Ladoga and Onega region around 500 A.D and populated the Carelia and Savolax regions by 700 A.D"

Bjarmaland (Perm)
Bjarmaland is mentioned e.g. by Norse sagas, where the Finnic Bjarmians (also known as Bjarms) lived and "ruled". In at least some historical Norse writings - such as e.g. in those by Ottar from H?logaland - the Bjarmians were referred to as Kvens, i.e. the Finns - and their descendants - of northern Scandinavia, northern Finland and northwestern Russia.

In this view - supported to by some other historical writings, and the Scandinavian folklore - such as that found in the Finnish national epic, the Kalevala - the Bjarmians were the most eastern of the Finnic people referred to as Kvens, and thus Bjarmaland formed the most eastern edge of the area known as Kvenland.

In today's terms, the historic Bjarmians - their descendants - are called East Karelians.

It has been suggested that the Vepses [Karelians], who remain not far from the hypothetical area are the descendants of the Biarmians, are the only remaining descendants of the Biarmians

(ii) Brit-Am Preamble to article by Ope Tuslapsi:
The short article below by Ope Tuslapsi are based on short notes.
Due to language difficulties it may be a little hard to follow but looks like interesting and potentially
important information.
The author seems to say that the Finnic Bjarmians (also known as Kvens and Veps) of Karelia in East Finland , and the Yams (scattered throughout Scandinavia may have been part of the Visigoths,  have some Viking  connection and represent part of the Tribe of Simeon.
On the whole however the author (like Brit-Am) in general identifies Finland with Issachar whom he suggest had once been identified with the Phoenicians.

(iii) Jaami's sons of Simeon ?
by  Ope Tuslapsi
From: Ope Tuslapsi <>
Suddenly I had a thought that would Yams be tribe of (Jams/Jaami's/Jaama's/Jaeaemie's/Haemi's/Haeme/Hame) the Jamin's, son of Simeon?
As in biblical codes of Finland It does reveal Simeon crossing Finland.
Finland in Biblical Codes

"At a sequence of 245. Begins at Genesis 50:23 where the verse speaks of Joseph being present at the birth of Machir son of Menasseh. Ends at Exodus 2:3.
FINLAND (vertical alignment, lime-green on brown) touches JOSEPH at the top (white on red) then on the next line are listed REUBEN, SIMEON, LEVI, ISSACHAR, and ZEBULON."
I think that the town of Jaama or Kingisepp (in history Yamburg) meaning Jams Castle..
Jam's bodytype is more rough and musclular farmer type (than thin and poetic) and Jams are quiet with few words (like yes, no and nothing else), speaking truth, not easy get to know. They are a bit slow thinking and they stay in opinion they have. They are very loyal when they have an established relationship.
And I have also been thinking If Yoms-vikings were actually Yams.. Because Yams were spread all over Scandinavia and the Baltic Sea area leaving hints to place names like Yamburg, Yamsburg (Nenets)/Yammal, Jaama, Jaemsae, Jaemtland etc.
Viking was perhaps just a common name for all seafarers in Northern Europe. .
See where the Finns and Perms/Bjarms reach.
But also It may be that Yoms and Yams are not the same. Yams though have western European genes Y-haplogroup I1 that is found mostly in Scandinavia and in present Lebanon.
I still believe that most of the Finns belong to the Issachar but Yams have been a total mystery until now. The first documents speaking of Yams are Russian from 1000's.
"1000-luvun jalkipuolisko Ns. Nestorin kronikka mainitsee luetellessaan pohjoisen Euroopan kansoja Suomesta vain jaamit (jam), joihin he siis tassa vaiheessa viela laskevat ilmeisesti mukaan myos varsinaissuomalaiset ja karjalaiset."
Translated to English:
11 century. Nestor's Chronicle mentions as listing Northern European tribes only Jam's from Finland, in which they seem to consider Finns and Carelians at that time.
Here's What I think.
Yams are Simeon.
That is explained up above.
Carelians are mixture of Simeon, Issachar and Japhet's.
It seems that Carelians are descendants of Yams, Veps (Bjarms, Visigoths), Meryans (in the region Moscow -> Mesech ?) , Saami's and some other Ugric populations.
Finns are Issachar.
Finns I would keep totally different tribe as Tacitus mentions the Fenni. Finni/Finnones/Finns are mentioned in many historical documents and they seem to lead to some group of Foinicians (as mentioned earlier Baal text found from Nothern Sweden) because It is said to be Finica/Fenicia (too close not to be the same). Some texts show that Phuni means Phoenicia and Phuni was a son of Issachar.
"Another son of Issachar was PHUVAH (Genesis 46;13) whose children were known as Phuni or PUNI (Numbers 26;23,24). "PUNI" was a name given to the Phoenicians amongst whom Israelite Tribes such as Zebulon and Asher were at some stages an important component."
There are few other Finnic tribes also, but these Yams, Finns and Carelians are the three largest in history records concerning the area of present Finland.
Brit-Am said:
<<Finland is identified as belonging mainly to the Tribes of Gad, Simeon, and especially Issachar. For many years, Finland was ruled by Sweden (Gad) and many Swedes remained in Finland.  One of the symbols of Gad was a lion, while the Tribe of Simeon could be represented by a sword (in popular Jewish Art) presumably due to the "instruments of cruelty" (Gen.49;5: Clei Hamas = "tools of violence") they were likened unto and their use (together with Levi) of the sword in massacring the inhabitants of Canaanite Schechem. Both the Sword (Simeon) and the Lion (Gad) are prominent on the Finnish Coat of Arms.
So.. Simeon (Yams) and Issachar (Finns) identified in Finland.
Where is Gad (Bjarms(Veps ?) ?
Bjarms are better known as Veps and have a very similar language to that of Finland. The Veps (or visi/ves in historical texts) were a very powerful nation once. It did trade all the way to Arabic world. Some say that they were Goths, Visigoth. There are many old place names showing that. The Finnish language holds many Gothic words that no longer exist in any other language, such as Kuningas (protogothic Kuningaz meaning King). There was f.e. Holmg rd and such places in Bjarmland. There is a mention of letter between Bolgar and Veps from 900.
There is signs of Goths in Finland, so maybe they were Bjarms/Veps.

5. Brief Extracts from Wikipedia Article on Finland

Finland, officially the Republic of Finland[2] (Finnish: Suomi; Swedish: Finland...has borders with Sweden to the west, Russia to the east, and Norway to the north, while Estonia lies to its south across the Gulf of Finland. The capital city is Helsinki.

Around 5.3 million people reside in Finland, and the majority are concentrated in the south.[1] It is the eighth largest country in Europe in terms of area and the most sparsely populated country in the European Union. Most Finns are native in Finnish, which is related to Estonian ...The largest minority language, Swedish, is spoken natively by 5.5 percent,[3] and Finnish speakers total a similar share of Sweden's population. Finland is a democratic, parliamentary republic with a central government and local governments in 415 municipalities. Greater Helsinki (including Helsinki, Espoo, and Vantaa) totals a million residents and a third of GDP. Other cities include Tampere, Turku, and Oulu.

Finland was historically part of Sweden and from 1809 an autonomous Grand Duchy within the Russian Empire. Finland's declaration of independence in 1917 from Russia was followed by a civil war, wars against the Soviet Union...

Finland has been economically quite free throughout its history and the largest trade flows have historically been with the United Kingdom and Germany. Finland reached the world's top income levels in the 1970s...Finland has had excellent results in many international comparisons of national performance such as high-technology manufacturing, gross domestic product growth, and civil liberties.[4] Finland joined the European Union in 1995 and participates in institutions such as the Eurozone, though Finland is still a rare non-NATO EU country.

Sweden established its official rule of Finland in the 13th century. Swedish became the dominant language of the nobility, administration and education; Finnish was chiefly a language for the peasantry, clergy and local courts in predominantly Finnish-speaking areas. The Bishop of Turku was the most socially pre-eminent person in Finland before the Reformation.

During the Reformation, the Finns gradually converted to Lutheranism...wars between Sweden and Russia led to the occupation of Finland twice by Russian forces, known to the Finns as the Greater Wrath (1714-1721) and the Lesser Wrath (1742?1743). By this time Finland was the predominant term for the whole area from the Gulf of Bothnia to the Russian border.

On March 29, 1809, after being conquered by the armies of Alexander I of Russia in the Finnish War, Finland became an autonomous Grand Duchy in the Russian Empire until the end of 1917. ...From the 1860s onwards, a strong Finnish nationalist movement, known as the Fennoman movement, grew. Milestones included the publication of what would become Finland's national epic, the Kalevala, in 1835, and the Finnish language achieving equal legal status with Swedish in 1892.

Finnish famine of 1866-1868 killed 15 percent of the population...The GDP per capita was still a half of United States and a third of Great Britain.[6]

On December 6, 1917, shortly after the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, Finland declared its independence, which was approved by Bolshevist Russia.
Months after in 1918, the violent wing of the Social Democratic Party started a coup, which led a brief but bitter civil war that affected domestic politics for many decades afterwards. The civil war was fought between "the Whites", who were supported by Imperial Germany, and "the Reds", supported by Bolshevist Russia. Eventually, the Whites overcame the Reds. The deep social and political enmity between the Reds and Whites remained. The civil war and activist expeditions (see Heimosodat) to the Soviet Union strained Eastern relations.
Finland 1920-1940

After a brief flirtation with monarchy, Finland became a presidential republic, with Kaarlo Juho St0lberg elected as its first president in 1919.

During World War II, Finland fought the Soviet Union twice: in the Winter War of 1939-40 after the Soviet Union had attacked Finland and in the Continuation War of 1941-44, following Operation Barbarossa, in which Nazi Germany invaded the Soviet Union. Following German losses on the Eastern Front and the subsequent Soviet advance, Finland was forced to make peace with the Soviet Union. This was followed by the Lapland War of 1944-45, when Finland forced the Germans out of northern Finland.

6. The Sixth Sense, Inspiration, and Brit-Am
Personally I am convinced that we all have a sixth sense. This expresses itself in telepathy, instinct, intuition, and a vast numbers of "coincidences" that occur to us daily and that we usually do not notice. This sixth sense is similar to other senses in so far that unconsciously or consciously we direct it in certain directions and interpret it through out intellect. People who are intelligent and sensitive and spiritually inclined are often more aware of this faculty and sometimes even have developed it far beyond its average level.
What has all this to with "Brit-Am"?
Nothing much. It is of interest in its own right. Apart from that we correspond with others and interact with them. Many of those we correspond with we relate to us and to similar findings through their "instincts". They consider this "inspiration" and in a sense that is what it is.
The Gift of Prophecy according to Maimonides is a God-given heightened level of sixth-sense consciousness.
Maimonides implies that theoretically anybody could achieve this ability but the Almighty prevents them from doing so and only allows those who are worthy to enter its gates. When someone says they "feel" something or it has been "revealed" to them we do not disregard them since such phenomenon do occur.
Nevertheless, Brit-Am cannot relate to findings based upon this ability or allow postings in which its presence is an overriding factor.

7. Critic of Brit-Am Looks Forward to Our Possible trip to the USA
Marc (also known as Hark) wrote:

Yair--looking forward to your possible trip to USA--I would love to find out if our scholars here agree with your philosophy about the gentile/Jewish connection-- that most of the non-Jews of Europe are of Israelite origin. Can't wait to hear if I am the only skeptic.

Brit-Am Reply:
It is dishonest to attribute to your opponents beliefs they do not hold.
Or to exaggerate such beliefs in order to present them in a negative light before others not familiar with the subject.
We never said that,
"most of the non-Jews of Europe are of Israelite origin"
Our studies indicate that descendants of the Lost Ten Tribes were to be found concentrated
in the Scanindinavian nations, Holland, Belgium, France, Switzerland, and the British Isles
including Ireland. There were also significant numbers once in Germany and other parts of Europe
who mostly moved to North America before 1914. Even concerning the countries mentioned above we would not say
that in every case Israelites form or formed a majority of the population only that they had a significant influence
and their numbers must have been substantial.
The same applies to the USA and other nations.
It would be more correct to say that "descendants of Lost Ten Tribes are concentrated amongst the populations
of certain West European nations".
Historically they have influenced and even determined the national character of those nations.
Biblical Prophecy and History indicate that they must be exceedingly numerous
though we usually avoid specific numbers or percentages.
We emphasize WHERE the Lost Ten Tribes as identifiable entities concentrated in specific areas are to be found today.
The EMPHASIS is on who and where they are today!

Brit-Am is the "still small voice" that contains the truth.
