1. Welsh into Hebrew
We just received a copy of the book,
"Comparing Welsh Hebrew" by Karel Jongeling (Netherlands, 2000).
We posted a review of this work in the past that we had downloaded from the
We now have copy of the book itself. It is an academic study of past
attempts to find
connections between Welsh and Hebrew.  The author attempts to remain
impartial and not come to conclusions but one gets the impression that he
too feels a connection existed.
Shmuel James who is a qualified linguist and occasionally works for Brit-Am
is going through the book now and I will go through it later and write up a
detailed review for our magazine, Brit-Am Truth.
The book is very technical but appears to point to the following conclusions:
All Celtic languages (the British isles, France, maybe parts of Germany)
were preceded by an "Afro-Asiatic" substratum
similar to Egyptian. In the British Isles there was a direct Hebrew element
which is especially apparent in Welsh.
In addition the overriding layer of the language was Eastern Indo-European
similar to tongues that once existed
in Iran, Turkey, and Russia. This layer was probably imposed by conquest of
an elite minority.
These findings correspond with the historical scenario of the Western celts
as described by Brit-Am in our

2.  "Mark R. Ensign" :Health Hints
Shalom, Yair.
Re your personal Health Hints -
1.  The water drinking that you recommended as a good start, but it is
insufficient.  At least eight eight-ounce glasses of water should be drunk
every day along with some salt.  Please see the web site of an outstanding
doctor who has researched this essential factor in our health, water at
http://www.watercure.com His book, Your Body's Many Cries for Water, is an
outstanding resource.

2.  As the doctor above has demonstrated, one of the primary causes of
depression is dehydration.  Thus the tip of the water drinking the above is
essential to relieving of depression.

3.  Hydrogen peroxide is one of the finest antiseptics.  It is great for
use on cuts and bruises.  And it is very cheap.

4.  I've saved the best for last.  .... using hydrogen peroxide to prevent
colds and flu.  I speak from numerous experiences and testimonies of others
I've shared with....

3. Ms. Jan: The Power of Speech
Shalom Mr. Davidiy;
On the subject of color:  Interestingly, I heard from a Rabbi in NY on
radio that this is a season of " slander" or character assassination so we
must all be very careful to guard our speech; to refrain from this is good;
and in addition to it refraining is to give great encouraging and affirming
words to everyone we meet; I will bless those who bless Israel; remember
not all Israel is revealed; so bless everyone in case you mistakenly curse
and Israelite !

He stated that to slander someone in public was to "whiten their face";
this would imply the blood drained from their face, and we know the life is
in the blood; to slander is form of murder or indeed character
assassination .  So for those who are of "white race" perhaps somewhere in
our Israelite linage we were colored until someone slandered us
publicly.  Just a thought...who knows???  I've not yet looked back into the
time Solomon until the Kingdoms's split and exile began.  Perhaps someone
else has and could elaborate.

By the way I just happened upon Rabbi Yakov Spivak's radio broadcast; what
a blessing to have the Torah broadcast through the air waves; I tell you is
sure cure for the "slander" going on here in the U.S. Politics.  Also is
the best thing Jews can do right now is to speak G-d's word through the air
waves; I hope more Jews do so; fulfilling mission to be light to the
gentiles.  All kinds of people listen on the radio; one is not limited to
being a Jew to hear.  And in the end days ten gentiles will grasp the
tzitzit of the Jews, and ask can we walk with you as we see G-d is with you.

Amen; G-d is with you, be not dismayed, praise is also a good cure for
depression.  Open those Psalms if you are too weak to find the words; and
recite the praise ful psalms into the air, speak them loudly, and with
great meaning; it will nourish your soul; and the air around you!

Be Brave, Be Strong
Shabbat is Coming!
Ms. Jan

4. Marcus  on Wales
Dear Yair ,

Re : Peculiarity .

        Thanks for the last newsletter . Lots of useful tips and
information . That is very interesting what you say about peculiarity ,
which precise scripture says that . I had always understood peculiarity to
refer to not cutting your sideburns and other typical Jewish customs .
        I seriously think you need to go to North Wales (and Anglesy) and
I'll tell you why . The people and the culture are really unique , and they
have an oral tradition . Their society, strictly speaking , is not supposed
to be class structured , but structured around learning and knowledge . The
best example of this is the Eisteddford festival where poetry memorization
and recital , and all aspects of the arts are celebrated . The laurel goes
to the best reciter . You know that the Welsh language is a real conundrum
for scholars , and I've told you that they now know that they trace back to
Persia . Significantly , their traditional dress is a very middle eastern
looking outfit . To put it bluntly , they are either of Arabic or Jewish
extraction , they can be no other . I think if you nailed this issue , the
whole intellectual community might start hanging on your coat-tails .

Yours sincerely

5. British Ice Age Approaching?

Global warming will plunge Britain into new ice age 'within decades'

By Geoffrey Lean, Environment Editor

25 January 2004

Britain is likely to be plunged into an ice age within our lifetime by
global warming, new research suggests.

A study, which is being taken seriously by top government scientists, has
uncovered a change "of remarkable amplitude" in the circulation of the
waters of the North Atlantic.

Similar events in pre-history are known to have caused sudden "flips" of
the climate, bringing ice ages to northern Europe within a few decades. The
development - described as "the largest and most dramatic oceanic change
ever measured in the era of modern instruments", by the US Woods Hole
Oceanographic Institute, which led the research - threatens to turn off the
Gulf Stream, which keeps Europe's weather mild.

If that happens, Britain and northern Europe are expected to switch
abruptly to the climate of Labrador - which is on the same latitude -
bringing a nightmare scenario where farmland turns to tundra and winter
temperatures drop below -20C. The much-heralded cold snap predicted for the
coming week would seem balmy by comparison.

Scientists have long expected that global warming could, paradoxically,
cause a devastating cooling in Europe by disrupting the Gulf Stream, which
brings as much heat to Britain in winter as the sun does: the US National
Academy of Sciences has even described such abrupt, dramatic changes as
"likely". But until now it has been thought that this would be at least a
century away.

The new research, by scientists at the Centre for Environment, Fisheries
and Acquaculture Science at Lowestoft and Canada's Bedford Institute of
Oceanography, as well as Woods Hole, indicates that this may already be
beginning to happen.

Dr Ruth Curry, the study's lead scientist, says: "This has the potential to
change the circulation of the ocean significantly in our lifetime. Northern
Europe will likely experience a significant cooling."

Robert Gagosian, the director of Woods Hole, considered one of the world's
leading oceanographic institutes, said: "We may be approaching a threshold
that would shut down [the Gulf Stream] and cause abrupt climate changes.

"Even as the earth as a whole continues to warm gradually, large regions
may experience a precipitous and disruptive shift into colder climates."
The scientists, who studied the composition of the waters of the Atlantic
from Greenland to Tierra del Fuego, found that they have become "very much"
saltier in the tropics and subtropics and "very much" fresher towards the
poles over the past 50 years.

This is alarming because the Gulf Stream is driven by cold, very salty
water sinking in the North Atlantic. This pulls warm surface waters
northwards, forming the current.

The change is described as the "fingerprint" of global warming. As the
world heats up, more water evaporates from the tropics and falls as rain in
temperate and polar regions, making the warm waters saltier and the cold
ones fresher. Melting polar ice adds more fresh water.

Ominously, the trend has accelerated since 1990, during which time the 10
hottest years on record have occurred. Many studies have shown that similar
changes in the waters of the North Atlantic in geological time have often
plunged Europe into an ice age, sometimes bringing the change in as little
as a decade.


  6. Meetings in Jerusalem
a. We met with Norman Willis in Jerusalem several times
and agreed to put the past behind us. The meetings went well.
He is putting together a list of Christians who wish to live in Israel from
an Ephraimite perspective
and who agree not to engage in missionary activity. He was advised to put
the list together by a Rabbi who wishes to remain anonymous. If we had have
been asked at the beginning we may have advised against such a project but
since it has gone ahead we encourage him to keep going since it may have
positive results. At all events it is not connected with Brit-Am and there
is no chance of our identities being blurred. He supports Brit-Am as far as
"Brit-Am Identity" beliefs are concerned
and that is what counts from our point of view.

b. We met with Wendy Sutherland who organizes tours of the Holy Land from
an Ephraimite perspective
and we think this is positive. Any tour of Israel is a good thing and these
tours are even better since they
emphasize Judah and Samaria that in effect are historically the
most  Biblical- parts of Israel

c. We met with former supporters of Brit-Am who want to do their own thing
and set up a center.
We were reserved since the project they advocate sounds impractical and
even if successful
sounds like a tremendous misallocation of resources. Brit-Am is constantly
struggling to keep going and to do things
and even small amounts can be very effective.
The people concerned are all known as  Christian activists.
We are putting out a book in Hebrew. In preparing the book additional
information became known to us.
Brit-Am beliefs are valid not only from the Biblical and secular aspects
but also from the Jewish one.
We do not need a blurring of our uniqueness at this stage. At the same time
it is a free country, people can do
what they like and you never know. Sometimes the most improbable ideas are
the successful ones.
Just do not involve us.
Sometimes you meet potential contributors who are against helping you meet
the rent but they
may buy  buy a thousand ice creams with a positive "Brit-Am friendly" logo
on it and distribute them freely. In such a case, does one refuse the ice
cream? Maybe this is what is needed?
During the meeting Rabbi Feld suggested that his organization might be able
to assist
them in administrative matters in the same way as it assists other
individuals and groups. He made the suggestion
on behalf of the Maccabee Institute and not Brit-Am.
After the meeting the initiator of the group sent out a letter implying
that they had reached some sort of agreement
with  Brit-Am but no such thing had taken place and is unlikely to do so.
The people concerned are working neither with us nor against us.
There may be some co-operation at a later date or there may not.

7. The Main Point
We do not know what the future holds but at the moment we consider the most
urgent task to be the spreading
of Brit-Am knowledge. All other activities should be secondary to this. We
will endeavor to bring this knowledge
to the attention of anybody who is potentially interested including public
figures who have an interest or should have an interest
in this area. We represent both Joseph and Judah and will direct our
attentions to both.
God bless you
Yair Davidiy
