Phoenicians in Britain and Ireland
Here is some more stuff from memory [please check if you wish and have time,my memory may be slightly off]: Votadini has the Latin suffix -ini so the root word would be Votad. Venicones has a Latin suffix "-ones" so the root word would be Venic.If V-> F then Venic becomes Fenic which sounds like Feine or Phoenician "Phoinix" or "Phoenic" or "Foenic" [P->F in Irish Gaelic and silent h]. This may be the Phuni clan of Issachar,but Phoenicians from "Tsiar" and "Scadon" [Tyre and Sidon] in the east did visit Ireland for the purposes of trade. Fenius Farzaidh in Irish myth was linked to Phoenix [Phenius?],brother of Cadmus in Greek myth since they were both linguists. Cadmus was at Thebes in Greece which was founded by Ogyges. The old Irish histories refer to the Irians of Ulster as Ogeages;the land of Iair, Iahir, Jair or Yair [east Manasseh] was [originally] ruled by the giant Og or Gog [Ayin rendered as a "G" or "A": Aog or Gog]. The Irish myths speak of Tir na n'Og [Land of the Og, but Og is translated sometimes as "youth"].
Gog and Magog
The giants Gog and Magog are also in Welsh myth. Og or Gog of Bashan was a giant!
Ireland and Rochchild
Baron de Rothschild also founded the British Relief Association which helped the Irish and Highland Scots. He financed the purchase of the Suez Canal to the tune of 4m pounds;this helped the growth of the British Empire during the Victorian Period.He helped financially during the Crimean War. John Russell, a relative of the famous British philosopher Bertrand Russell, was one of his allies in the British government.
Ireland, Jews, and the Famine.
People are a strange mix. It is truly horrible what the Irish government did during the Holocaust. The Roman Catholic Church may have propagated anti-semitism amongst the Irish. It is rarely known that Baron Lionel de Rothschild contributed more financial aid to the Irish during the 19th century potato famine than anyone else;also, Queen Victoria made significant contributions. At the same time, I have never heard of any large scale persecutions of Jews occurring in Ireland. It happened in France,England and Belgium during the Middle or Dark Ages. More recently, it has happened in Germany ,Russia and Eastern European countries.
The West and the Phoenicians
Why the Hebrews were Exiled.
Isaiah 43:5 "and gather you from the west [Ma'arab]". Gesenius says that Ma'aarab is used only of the Phoenician merchandise from the west,indicating the distant west from Israel.Ma'arab is connected to arab which means "sun setting" or "wilderness".
The British hold Gibraltar and have a base on Cyprus.The US ,in the past, controlled the Panama canal.The British controlled Hong Kong until 1997. Bruce Lee had some Jewish ancestry through a Dutch merchant who settled in Hong Kong.
Simeon and Troy?
Near the city of Troy there was a river Simoeis.
Cimmerians came from Mannae.
The Ph.D. thesis by Stuart Carruthers Brown at the University of Toronto (1980) "Kinship to Kingship:Archaeological and Historical Studies in the Neo-Assyrian Zagros" is available on the Archive. It contains lots of information on Media and the Cimmerians for the period around 721 BCE and before. SC Brown believed that the Cimmerians probably came out of Uishdish in the midst of Mannae. This is similar to the 1988 doctoral dissertation of Anne-Gade Kristensen. SC Brown was the student of T. Cuyler Young and was affiliated with Louis Levine.
3 AND YE SHALL GO OUT AT THE BREACHES, EVERY COW AT THAT WHICH IS BEFORE HER; AND YE SHALL CAST THEM INTO THE PALACE, SAITH THE LORD.
The expression YE SHALL CAST THEM INTO THE PALACE should be translated from the Hebrew to say, THEY SHALL BE SENT BEYOND THE MOUNTAIN OF MANNAE. This is confirmed by the Aramaic Translation of Yehonatan (ca. 100 CE).
Scandinavian Myth Compared to that of Iran.
Compare Njordr and Freyja in Scandinavian myth with Norta and Frya in Iranian myth.
Joseph as a World Power!
Bronze Ages Spearhead in Irelands, England, Crete, and Mycenean Greece.
Socketed bronze spearheads were found in the shaft-graves in Mycenae. See "Homer and Mycenae" p.130 Martin P. Nilsson.These spearheads were cast in complex molds with a plug to form the socket.In the Iliad,Hector,the hero of Troy,has a similar spearhead with a slit and a ring to hold it together. Such socketed bronze spearheads have been found in Ireland and possibly England along the River Thames.They were in use during the bronze age in Mycenae and Crete during the Middle Minoan period.Later,after the collapse of the bronze age,the technology to make them was lost when the dark ages preceeding the period of Classical Greece arrived.
Earliest Egyptain Mention of Israel.
The princes are prostrate, saying ;'Peace!' Not one raises his head among the Nine Bows. Desolation is for Tjehenu; Hatti is pacified; Plundered is Pa-Canaan with every evil; Carried off is Ashkelon; Seized upon is Gezer; Yanoam is made non-existent; Israel is laid waste, its seed is no more; Kharru has become a widow because of Egypt. All lands together are pacified. Everyone who was restless has been bound. Israel Stele or Merneptah Stele-Gezer [city of Ephraim] and Yanoam[probably a city of Ephraim] is mentioned. The Achaeans attacked Egypt so they could be Ephraim. Date: 1213-1203 bce. Merneptah's Regnal dates
Achaeans, Aeolians, and Israel
Connection between the Achaeans and Aeolians of bronze age Greece? Martin P. Nilsson p.177 "Homer and Mycenae" says that the Aeolians were a "northern branch" of the Achaeans. Aeolus or Eolus is cited as a relative of Ir or Er who was the ancestor of the Irians of bronze age Ulster. From the Irians the Irish derive their national name. There was an Er of Judah and an Ir of Benjamin.Wikipedia says that some scholars have questioned whether the Achaeans were actually Greek. The Achaeans took part in a sea raid on Egypt at the time when Pharoah Merneptah [who was Pharoah just before the Trojan War] mentioned that he had subdued Israel [this is the Mernptah stele or the Israel Stele]. Merneptah mentions Yanoam [Ephraim?] and Gezer [city of Ephraim] in this conflict.
Habakuk (KJV) 3:
1 A PRAYER OF HABAKKUK THE PROPHET UPON SHIGIONOTH.
2 O LORD, I HAVE HEARD THY SPEECH, AND WAS AFRAID: O LORD, REVIVE THY WORK IN THE MIDST OF THE YEARS, IN THE MIDST OF THE YEARS MAKE KNOWN; IN WRATH REMEMBER MERCY.
3 GOD CAME FROM TEMAN, AND THE HOLY ONE FROM MOUNT PARAN. SELAH. HIS GLORY COVERED THE HEAVENS, AND THE EARTH WAS FULL OF HIS PRAISE.
4 AND HIS BRIGHTNESS WAS AS THE LIGHT; HE HAD HORNS COMING OUT OF HIS HAND: AND THERE WAS THE HIDING OF HIS POWER.
5 BEFORE HIM WENT THE PESTILENCE, AND BURNING COALS WENT FORTH AT HIS FEET.
6 HE STOOD, AND MEASURED THE EARTH: HE BEHELD, AND DROVE ASUNDER THE NATIONS; AND THE EVERLASTING MOUNTAINS WERE SCATTERED, THE PERPETUAL HILLS DID BOW: HIS WAYS ARE EVERLASTING.
7 I SAW THE TENTS OF CUSHAN IN AFFLICTION: AND THE CURTAINS OF THE LAND OF MIDIAN DID TREMBLE.
8 WAS THE LORD DISPLEASED AGAINST THE RIVERS? WAS THINE ANGER AGAINST THE RIVERS? WAS THY WRATH AGAINST THE SEA, THAT THOU DIDST RIDE UPON THINE HORSES AND THY CHARIOTS OF SALVATION?
9 THY BOW WAS MADE QUITE NAKED, ACCORDING TO THE OATHS OF THE TRIBES, EVEN THY WORD. SELAH. THOU DIDST CLEAVE THE EARTH WITH RIVERS.
10 THE MOUNTAINS SAW THEE, AND THEY TREMBLED: THE OVERFLOWING OF THE WATER PASSED BY: THE DEEP UTTERED HIS VOICE, AND LIFTED UP HIS HANDS ON HIGH.
11 THE SUN AND MOON STOOD STILL IN THEIR HABITATION: AT THE LIGHT OF THINE ARROWS THEY WENT, AND AT THE SHINING OF THY GLITTERING SPEAR.
12 THOU DIDST MARCH THROUGH THE LAND IN INDIGNATION, THOU DIDST THRESH THE HEATHEN IN ANGER.
13 THOU WENTEST FORTH FOR THE SALVATION OF THY PEOPLE, EVEN FOR SALVATION WITH THINE ANOINTED; THOU WOUNDEDST THE HEAD OUT OF THE HOUSE OF THE WICKED, BY DISCOVERING THE FOUNDATION UNTO THE NECK. SELAH.
14 THOU DIDST STRIKE THROUGH WITH HIS STAVES THE HEAD OF HIS VILLAGES: THEY CAME OUT AS A WHIRLWIND TO SCATTER ME: THEIR REJOICING WAS AS TO DEVOUR THE POOR SECRETLY.
15 THOU DIDST WALK THROUGH THE SEA WITH THINE HORSES, THROUGH THE HEAP OF GREAT WATERS.
16 WHEN I HEARD, MY BELLY TREMBLED; MY LIPS QUIVERED AT THE VOICE: ROTTENNESS ENTERED INTO MY BONES, AND I TREMBLED IN MYSELF, THAT I MIGHT REST IN THE DAY OF TROUBLE: WHEN HE COMETH UP UNTO THE PEOPLE, HE WILL INVADE THEM WITH HIS TROOPS.
17 ALTHOUGH THE FIG TREE SHALL NOT BLOSSOM, NEITHER SHALL FRUIT BE IN THE VINES; THE LABOUR OF THE OLIVE SHALL FAIL, AND THE FIELDS SHALL YIELD NO MEAT; THE FLOCK SHALL BE CUT OFF FROM THE FOLD, AND THERE SHALL BE NO HERD IN THE STALLS:
18 YET I WILL REJOICE IN THE LORD, I WILL JOY IN THE GOD OF MY SALVATION.
19 THE LORD GOD IS MY STRENGTH, AND HE WILL MAKE MY FEET LIKE HINDS' FEET, AND HE WILL MAKE ME TO WALK UPON MINE HIGH PLACES. TO THE CHIEF SINGER ON MY STRINGED INSTRUMENTS.
Saxons and Medes
The Bible says the lost tribes were settled in the cities of the Medes 2 Kings 18:11. Sometimes translated among the "Mountains of the Medes". Arrian,an ancient chronicler of Alexander the Great, expressly stated "with Medes were ranged Sacesinians" who lived near Hyrcania on the Caspian Sea. In the 1600s and earlier there were British historians,who knew nothing about British-Israelism, who surmised that the Saxons descended from these Sacesinians.
Danes and Dacians
Borough of Dacorum in England means "of the Danes" in Latin. It is associated with Hemel Hempstead in the UK. The Domesday Book lists this as Tring and Danais. It was part of the old Danelaw. The mark of the tribe of Dan .
[Bede includes the Dacians together iwth others in his list of tparticipants in the Anglo-Saxon invasions.
