Australian Troops in World War 1 were led by a Jew, John Monash, who also commanded British, Canadians, and Americans. The name Monash means Manasseh, his soldiers were from Ephraim and Manasseh. He was from Judah. He helped defeat Germany-Edom. This was a fore-shadowing of future events that have yet to take place.
The First World War involved many peoples and its results in many ways gave rise to the modern world. The War was reaching its end after Australian and British troops under General John Monash won the Battle of Amiens. This was followed by General Monash directing British, Canadian, Australian, and American troops in winning a series of victories in 1918 which was known collectively as the Battle of the Hindenburg Line. The name Monash means Manasseh. Monash was Jewish. He was leading troops from Ephraim and Manasseh. They were fighting against the forces of Edom. All this has significance and may be seen as a preliminary run-through of future events as depicted by Prophecy.
World War I (WWI, 1914-1918), called the World War or the Great War was fought between the Allies and the Germanic-Turkish Powers. The Allies included Britain and her Empire and Dominions, as well as France, Serbia, and at first Russia. After the Russian Revolution in 1917 the Bolsheviks who were headed by Lenin, a paid agent of Germany, capitulated to Germany and pulled Russia out of the war. Italy at first had technically been on the side of Germany but later entered the war on the Allied side. The USA in 1917 also joined the Allies. On the other side were the German Empire (the Second Reich), the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Rumania, Bulgaria, and the Turkish Ottoman Empire that then ruled over most of the Middle East. More than 70 million military personnel, including 60 million Europeans, were mobilized . More than 9 million combatants were killed. At the beginning the Germans had conquered Belgium, Luxembourg, and part of France. They were stopped at a line outside of Paris. In the west the Germans incapacitated 230,000 more French and British troops than it lost itself. The War had been fought back and forth. By 1917 German defenses were good, better than those of the Allies, but progress was at a standstill. The German Navy had been run off the seas by the British. Its initially successful U-boat submarine attacks had failed. The British imposed a successful blockade on Europe. Germany was on the verge of starvation. In fact if it were not for the Allied victory in 1918 and the aid then given, millions of Germans may have died of hunger. Serbian and French troops had opened a second front (1916-1918) in the southeast. They defeated the Austro-Hungarians, Rumanians, and Bulgarians who were all fighting on the side of Germany. Austro-Hungary was secretly seeking to make a separate peace. British forces had conquered Sinai, Palestine, and Syria from the Turks. Australian Troops had played an important role in defeating the Turks and liberating the Holy Land. In hindsight it may be said that Germany had already lost the war. The problem was they did not think so at the time. In 1917 the Germans and Austrians (i.e. the Central Powers) scored a victory over the Italians, and there were mutinies amongst the French forces. The Central Germanic Powers signed an armistice on very favorable terms to themselves with Russia. This was intended to give them control of the Ukraine and its grain production and thus alleviate the effects of the British Blockade. It also released forces from the east to fight in the west. The USA had entered the war on the side of the Allies but its power had not yet come into effect. The Germans under General Erich Ludendorff attempted to strike a decisive blow before the expected arrival of U.S. forces in significant numbers. They attacked British forces near Amiens in North France. Using new tactics the Germans achieved an unprecedented advance of 60 kilometres (37 miles). Elsewhere, Paris was threatened. Many Germans thought victory was near. The German advance however was held back by Australian forces, led by General John Monash, who had been rushed down to stop them. This was followed by the Battle of Hamel which was followed up by the Battle of Amiens:
#At the Battle of Hamel on 4 July 1918, Monash, with the support of the British 4th Army commander Sir Henry Rawlinson commanded the 4th Australian Division, supported by the British 5th Tank Brigade, along with a detachment of US troops, to win a small but operationally significant victory for the Allies.
Monash, Sir John (1865-1931) by Geoffrey Serle
The battle of Hamel of 4 July, 'all over in ninety-three minutes, the perfection of teamwork', Monash wrote proved his point. The Americans participated, and Monash had to withstand, by extraordinary force of personality, a last-minute attempt by General Pershing to withdraw them. Military historians have acclaimed it as 'the first modern battle', 'the perfect battle'. 'A war-winning combination had been found: a corps commander of genius, the Australian infantry, the Tank Corps, the Royal Artillery and the RAF'.
On 8 August 1918, the Battle of Amiens was launched.
Returned soldiers including many senior officers, and Australian patriots in general, broadly assumed that Monash inspired the great offensive of 8 August and thus 'won the war'. He himself was never quite sure. He and his army commander, General Rawlinson, were thinking along similar lines, but it is almost certain that Rawlinson anticipated Monash and allowed him to believe he was the instigator. At all events, in conjunction with the Canadians, the break-out on 8 August, 'the black day of the German army', was a classic set-piece. [Serle, ibid].
Ludendorff used the term "the black day of the German army" for the battle of Amiens due to the large numbers of German troops who surrendered. Their morale was broken.
At Amiens Monash applied new tactics of his own using a combination of tanks and infantry and concentrating on silencing the heavy German guns before anything else. The Battle of Amiens is generally considered the beginning of the downfall of Germany. The German General Staff seem to have regarded it as the sign of the end.
On 12 August 1918 Monash was knighted as a Knight Commander of the Order of the Bath on the battlefield by King George V, who happened to be in France at the time. This was the first time a British monarch had honored a commander in such a way in 200 years.
There was something of poetic justice in this act by King George V. Before the battle of Hamel (which preceded Amiens), criticism of Monash had led the Prime Minister of Australia, Billy Hughes, to decide to remove Monash from his post. He travelled to the front to deliver the news to Monash in person. On the way however he met soldiers who had served under Monash who spoke well of him. This improved impression was confirmed when Hughes met Monash in person. [Incidentally, Billy Hughes was a believer in British Israel and considered the British and American peoples to be from the Ten Tribes]. Consequently Monash remained in charge and led his troops to victory. The enemies of Monash had plotted to depose him. The highest authority in the country of Australia had gone to the front with the intention of taking Monash down. He changed his mind. The only person in the world at that time in Australian eyes with more prestige than their Prime Minister was the British Monarch who was also their king. It was this person, the king himself, who now went to Monash and gave him the highest possible award. In the place where Monash was expected to be disgraced he received unprecedented honor.
The Australians then achieved a series of victories against the Germans at Chignes, Mont St Quentin, Peronne and Hargicourt. Monash had 208,000 men under his command, including 50,000 Americans. Out of the Battle of Ameins there developed a general Allied breakthrough of the German front. This whole campaign is known as the Battle of the Hindenburg Line. The Canadians played a crucial role in pushing the Germans back and defeating them. Allied attacks in general in this final campaign against the Germans were planned by John Monash. The Germans were unable to stop this offensive.
On 5 October, Prinz Max von Baden, on behalf of the German Government, asked for an immediate armistice on land, water and in the air. We see from the above that the role of Monash and his Australians had been of some importance.
Wikipedia tells us:
# By the end of the war Monash had acquired an outstanding reputation for intellect, personal magnetism, management and ingenuity. He also won the respect and loyalty of his troops: his motto was "Feed your troops on victory". Monash was regarded with great respect by the British - a British captain on the staff of William Heneker's 8th Division described Monash as "a great bullock of a man ... though his manners were pleasant and his behaviour far from rough, I have seen few men who gave me such a sensation of force ... a fit leader for the wild men he commanded". Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery later wrote: "I would name Sir John Monash as the best general on the western front in Europe #.
The contribution of Australia (as well as that of Canada) was very important in World War 1. Australia suffered from more casualties in the field than the USA. Australian troops under Monash (and others) may have made the finally determinative influence on the entire event.
Our friend, David Steiner, pointed out that the name Monash is in effect a form of the name Manasseh. The father of Monash had the surname Monasch (in German pronounced like the English Monash) which means Manasseh and the maiden name of his mother was Manasse which is also a form of Manasseh.
The parents of Monash had migrated to Australia from Prussia which later formed the heart of the German Empire. The original home of the parents of Monash had been close to where the German general Erich Ludendorff was born. Ludenforff together with Hindenburg became the leader of the German armed forces. Monash commanded the Australians. If the parents of Monash would have remained in Prussian Germany then Monash, being Jewish, would hardly have been allowed to become an officer let alone something more than that.
Many of the Germans are related to Esau who is also known as Edom. Descendants of Edom had come to be dominant amongst German and Roman elites (Megilla 6). Joseph is destined to be the major adversary of Edom (Obadiah 1:18, Baba Batra 123;b). The proven ability and propensity of the English-speaking nations to defeat the German Powers of Europe provides us with additional indications confirming the identity of the British and their offshoots in North America, Australia, etc, with Joseph. It should be remembered that the Germans include inhabitants of Germany and Austria as well as many of those of Hungary and of other areas in Europe. One of the characteristics of Joseph is his ability to defeat Esau/Edom.
18 The house of Jacob shall be a fire,
And the house of Joseph a flame;
But the house of Esau shall be stubble;
They shall kindle them and devour them,
And no survivor shall remain of the house of Esau,
For the LORD has spoken.
It is true that Monash himself was Jewish and therefore from Judah - unless he was descended from those of Joseph who at some stage had attached themselves to Judah. The Australians are (or were) mainly an offshoot of the British Isles (with more than 20% from southern Ireland) and we identify them with Ephraim. We identify the USA with Manasseh. Monash (whose name means Manasseh) therefore commanded troops from both Ephraim and Manasseh i.e. of Joseph in general.
Did Monash whose name means "Manasseh" and himself being Jewish yet heading the forces of Ephraim represent a future re-union of Judah with Joseph?
In Biblical Studies, names have significance. Perhaps there is something in the above observations of importance?
The First and Second World Wars in some ways are considered one great conflict. Concerning WW1, Monash in effect shares some of the credit for the final defeat of the German forces which incidentally included those of the Austro-Hungarian and Turkish Empires. The Turkish Empire was as much Islamic-Arabic as Turkish. We thus had Ishmael under the Turks and Esau under the German-Prussians and Austro-Hungarians aligned against Joseph meaning Britain and her offshoots and the USA. Reuben in France and Benjamin in Belgium were also of importance. The involvement of Britain at the beginning of WW1 was at least partly due to the defense of Belgium. Britain entered the war when the Germans invaded Belgium and refused to evacuate it. Here too, we have Joseph defending his brother Benjamin since many of the Belgians descend from Benjamin. World War 2 was similar. Turkey remained neutral in World War 2 but it was pro-German. In WW2 Italy at first joined the Germans. So did Japan part of whose elite are also of Edomite descent. Austria, Hungary, Bulgaria, and Rumania were again on the German side.
The Arabs in World War 2 were pro-German. The Mufti, head of the Palestinian Arabs, raised SS regiments amongst the Bosnian Muslims. All this foreshadows the final showdown, or the period just before it, when Ishmael and Edom combine against Israel and Judah. Nowadays, Europe and the Islamic World are drawing together. There are those who see a future union of the two known as Eurabia. Researcher Bat Ye'or in "Eurabia. The Euro-Arab Axis", 2005, 2010) has described this process in detail. Germany dominates the EU. The EU works towards the destruction of Israel.
In February 2013, News Commentator, Steven Shamrak, reported that the EU had become the largest single donor to the PA, contributing about $720 million per annum. Europe also channels an ocean of money to anti-Israel NGOs inside Israel. The EU finances war and delegitimising efforts against Israel. The EU sponsors Arab anti-Semitism.... The European Union just announced a contribution of EUR 14 million for a program in Gaza . Most of this aid goes through UNRWA. Many terrorists work for the UN agency, such as Issa al Batran, who was in charge of rocket production for Hamas and was also employed as a teacher in UN schools. Food storage facilities in UNRWA's areas, funded by the European Union, have become munitions depots. UNRWA's employees transported weapons and terrorists using the agency ambulances. Japan was also a significant contributor to the Palestinian adversaries of Israel.
Does all this foreshadow something of Biblical Significance? Are the forces of Darkness again drawing together against the Hebrew Peoples?
We should be aware of our Israelite Ancestry and spread this knowledge. This is what our peoples need at present.
Our organization, Brit-Am/Hebrew Nations is working in this direction. We need help to continue to function.
