Proofs and Observations by Eric (TubalCain)
The Etruscans of Italy. Lydia of Ancient Turkey, and the Philistines.
Lycians , known as Lukka, are often mentioned amongst the Sea Peoples with the Israelites and Philistines. They might be the Caslukhim who were ancestors of the people of Caphtor and the Philistines. Lukka or Lyka may be obtained by dropping the "Cas" part of Caslukhim [lukhim] . [In Greek legend] Perseus, son of Danae, rescued Andromeda, daughter of Cassiopeia at Joppa (Jaffa in the area of Dan on the southwest coast of Israel) . The "Cas" appears in Cassiopeia. There was a town of Kas or Kash in Lycia.The identification of Caphtor is uncertain. It may be the Island of Crete. Caphtor and Casluchet are mentioned in the Kom Ombo inscription of Egypt. The Lycians were known as Termilae,a name similar to the Etruscan [Italy ] "Turms", an Etruscan diety. Herodotus said the Etruscans came from Lydia. "Ludim" is mentioned as relative of Caslukhim, where "Lud" was the Assyrian name for Lydia. The Lycian alphabet is very similar to the Lydian alphabet, both of which are similar to the Etruscan alphabet. The Lycians were supposed to have been led to their country [Teke Peninsula in south west Asia Minor, Turkey] from the Island of Crete [Caphtor?]. The country of the Lydians impinged upon that of the Lycians. Etruscan architecture is similar to the tomb of Alyattes. King of Lydia [sometimes the name Alyatt is equated with Goliath] in south west Asia Minor. The Carians also were next door neighbours of the Lycians. There were Kari [Carians] among the Philistine guards of King David. "Crethi" [people of Crete?] are mentioned in connection with the Philistines.. Beth Car in the Bible may mean "House of Car", where Car was the ancestor of the Carians. Lehabim [Lybians] are mentioned as relatives of the Caslukhim. The "Nine Bows" that attacked Bronze Age Egypt involved "Lukka" [Lycians] and Labu [Lybians], Philistines and Israelite Tribes.
Places Named after Samaria in Scythia
An ancient town of Saca at 94 1/6, 39 1/2 coordinates is located next to a town Samaranne civitas[city] at 94 1/3, 40 1/2 coordinates in the geography of Ptolemy (6.9.2) in the region of Hyrcania at the southern coasts of the Caspian Sea. Samaranne civitas[city from civitas] is also known as "Samariane" , a town of Hyrcania in Strabo (xi. p.508). The Greeks had an "-e" suffix,so "Samariane" may originally have been "Samarian". The Assyrian Kings referred to the Kings of the House of Israel as "Samarians",after the capitol "Samaria" of the House of Israel. An example of the "-e" suffix: Saka in Persian,becomes Sacae [Saka-e] in Herodotus. An Assyrian record says" I received the tribute of Jehoash (Joash) the Samarian." from the Stele of Adad-Nirari III 2 Kings 13:10-13
Saka and Saxons
From line 75 of the Behistun Inscription, Darius the Great,Ruler of the Persian Empire recorded: "Those Saka were faithless [original word:"arika"] and Ahura Mazda [my comment: the chief god of the ancient Iranians] was NOT worshipped by them. I worshipped Ahura Mazda; by the grace of Ahura Mazda I did unto them according to my will"-Darius the Great ca. 520 bce [sounds like a nice guy...] [The House of Israel was faithless to HaShem;the Saka were faithless to Ahura Mazda...] This is a possible indicator that the Saka were not originally Iranians,who were all worshippers of Ahura Mazda at this time,but were outsiders [deportees?] to the region,with different religious beliefs. The Saxons have long been connected to the Saka. The supreme god was "Ahura Mazda" in ancient Iran,but,according to Darius, the Saka did not worship this god. They lived in a province of the ancient Persian Empire called "Saka-pa". The Book of Esther says that the ancient Persian Empire was divided into provinces Esther 1:1;the Saka/Kimiri had their own province.

Amos mentioned Sakkuth and Kaiwan. The ancient Saxons followed Krodo and Satar ,apparently Saturn. Adam Zertal mentioned the Sardan sea people at Megiddo and they were at Beth Shean and near Dor.
Disagreement with France
Tiff between France and US , Australia about failed sub deal. France is promoting EU home defense, with less reliance on US protection, and has recalled ambassadors from both countries. British Inventor Sir Clive Sinclair passed away.
Predicted Population of Israelite Nations
Prediction of population size of combined Israelite nations. To the 12 tribes Moses said they would be a 1000 times or 1000 fold greater in population. Deuteronomy 1:11. Many scriptures in the Book of Numbers suggest the Israelite population was about 600,000 or greater at that time. 600,000x 1000=600,000,000. If you sum the total populations of all Israelite countries today the total figure is about 661,000,000.
Groves of Worship in Ancient Western Nations
Hebrews in Britain: Pagan Testimony-1
Deut 16:21 Thou shalt not plant for thyself any tree near the altar of thy God. There was a sacred tree at Gamla ["Old"] Uppsala in Sweden where the Vikings had their pagan temple. A huge evergreen tree stood by the Temple of Uppsala.
Tacitus mentioned the veneration of the Anglii for the goddess Nerthus who had a sacred grove. The Landnamabok of Iceland says "He made his home at Lund [Old Norse 'grove'],and held the grove sacred" There was a "Frolund" [grove of Fro,Frey or Freyr],dedicated to the diety Frey in Denmark. Also, Ullundu [Ull-lund] in Sweden, grove of Ull or Ullr.
