Answers to Quora Questions by Yair Davidiy

The question was:
Why are there claims of Scythians, Frisians, Angles, and Saxons being Jewish? The source writes that they came upon “Northern Barbarians” and linguists concluding that they imposed their language on them. Who were the Northern Barbarians and Goths?
The quoted source,
DUTCH-FRISIAN LEGENDARY SOURCES CONFIRM THE ISRAELITE ORIGINS OF THE FRISIANS, ANGLES, AND SAXONS
was in fact first published by Yair Davidiy on the web-site of Brit-Am.
The article was mainly extracted from the book "The Tribes" also by Yair Davidiy.
In short there existed Frisian Legends first recorded in the 1600s that traced the Frisians and Angles (and Anglo-Saxons) to ancient Israelites. Certain details from these accounts were found to correspond with archaeological findings, and with the legends of others (such as those concerning the Khazars) who may have been of similar origin. This understanding is also consistent with KNOWN historical sources as distinct from conventional supposition.
As for the question,
Who were the Northern Barbarians and Goths?
We understand they were a mixture of peoples of different origins and included Israelites among them.
The name Goth was sometimes rendered as "Gad." In Biblical Hebrew the name "Gad" could have been rendered in some cases as "Goth". [The "O" sound is a Holem pronounced as "o" in Yemenite and Askenazic Hebrew, The "th" sound is that a "d" that is not stressed.] Gad was a Tribe of Israel.
