Additional Notes by Eric (TubalCain)
Continued from: France and Israel
Reuben may be mentioned in Celtic mythical histories as Ruiben or Rumen [the name spelling has variants in different ancient manuscripts], an associate linguist of Fenius Farsa, an ancestral figure of the Gaels - I try to link this with the Remi or Remon tribe of ancient France who were associated closely with the Kingship of France through the Cathedral of Rheims named for their city. Likewise, the ancient Kingdom of Burgundy in eastern France - from Vikings of the island of Bornholm in Denmark-may be Asherites, brothers of Gad. The Burgunds and Gothones (Swedes) were members of the Vandal tribal confederacy, which, I contend , are the Vanir folk who came from the "Vanaheim" [Vana home] of the Vana or Tana Fork [Tana-is,with Greek suffix "-is",the Don River Flood at the northeastern Black Sea, a favourite haunt of Scythians, Cimmerians, Franks and Gaels] and had links to eastern Tyrkia [Turkey?]. Another Swedish group were the Asa or Aesir considered to be godlike. The Voluspa of old Icelandic literature mentions Asa people on the plain of Ida-apparently a reference to the Troy land of northwestern Turkey,and mentions the "Tursa virgins", possibly a reference to the Trojans [Hittite:Tarosa], cf. the Thursha sea people who haunted the coasts of bronze age Israel and their possible connection to Troy. France has a revolutionary character from its history,not only within, but as an exporter of revolutionary ideas on a global scale - such nations as Russia, China, Cambodia, Vietnam, Cuba, etc. have been under the control of Communism. In the Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx said "Workers of all nations:UNITE!". Marx and Engels said that the Paris Commune 1871 was the first example of "dictatorship by the Proletariat". Karl Marx,who was of a German -Jewish family from Trier, even wrote a book "The Paris Commune", and from Commune we have "Communist". Marx and Engels were under the influence of the French political insurrections. Atrocities have been commited by many Communist regimes globally- Romania, Hungary, Ukraine, etc. Political terms like "Right Wing", "Coup d'Etat" and "detente" have French origins. Henry Kissinger negotiated the end of the Vietnam War in Paris.In the Bible, the tribes of Levi and Reuben staged an insurrection against Moses, led by Korah, a Levite and Dathan, Abiram and On who were Reubenites - could this have been a foreshadowing of future events involving Reuben? Not long ago, Xi JinPing,now leader for life in the Peoples Republic of China, praised the friendship of Engels and Marx.The Internationale, a communist anthem, was written by members of the Paris Commune of 1871.At the present time it is regularly played by communist regimes around the globe.For example, it was played 3 years ago in China to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Karl Marx. The lyrics say "ni dieu" [not god]. Atheism was also a strong element of the great revolution of 1789 with the French clergy being suppressed.
