Instigators of Calumnies against the Land of Israel from Naphtali and Asher! (29 May, 2013, Sivan 20, 5773)
Duration ca. 18 minutes
Ireland and Norway are amongst the leading Western Nations in their condemnations of Israel and Zionism. This is a disgrace to them. They are Israelite countries many of whose inhabitants descend from the Ten Tribes. The Hebrew Tribes of Asher and Naphtali were important amongst the peoples of Ireland and Norway. The Two major instigators of the wicked spies who caused calamity to the Hebrews when they came out of Egypt were from the Tribes of Asher and Naphtali. Are Ireland and Norway continuing a negative pattern set by their forefathers?
In the Book of Numbers chapter 13 it tells how Moses choose 12 representatives (one from each tribe) to enter the land, traverse it, and return with a report. They did so. Ten of the Spies brought back a negative impression being fearful of the powerful inhabitants of the Land. God was angry with them. HE decreed that all that generation would have to wander for 40 years in the wilderness and would not merit to enter the land. Their children would do so. Two of the spies, Joshua (Yehoshua) from the Tribe of Ephraim and Caleb from the Tribe of Judah, had given a favorable account.
Ten of the spies had given a negative one.
Indications are that two of the spies, from the Tribes of Asher and Naphtali, had been the instigators of negativity. Their demoralizing attitude had affected the others.
This resulted in disaster for the whole of Israel.
These events are paralleled today where we find the nations of Ireland and Norway repeating the negative attitude initiated by the spies from Asher and Naphtali. Descendants of these two Tribes are to be found amongst the populations of Ireland and Norway.

The Names "Yeshuron" and "Asher"
The Tribe of Asher in Ireland.
In Hebrew nearly every word root may have positive or negative connotations. So too, with names. The potential to do good or bad is present in all of us, all the time. The Sages (Sotah 34;b Midrash Tanchuma) gave explanations of the Names of the Spies who brought an evil report of the Land.
The impression is that the names of the spies of the Tribes of Asher and Naphtali are given special emphasis.
13 from the tribe of Asher, Sethur the son of Michael;
We understand this name in its positive sense to mean something like, 'Discretion son of Who is Like God'?
The Sages (Rabbi Yitschak) explained this name in a negative sense:
# Sethur who contradicted (Hebrew, seter) the works of God; Michael who made himself weak and compliant (Hebrew, mach).#
14 from the tribe of Naphtali, Nahbi the son of Vophsi;
We understand this name in its positive sense to mean something like, Hidden One son of Reconciliation
The Sages (Rabbi Yochanan) explained this name in a negative sense:
# Nachbi who hid [Hebrew, hechbi] the words of God; Vophsi who walked over [trod down] [Hebrew, phisa] the will of God. #
Fishel Mael ("Shivtei Yisroel") enlarges on this subject.
The Tribes of both Asher and Naphtali, each in its won way, have the characteristics of keeping secrets and then announcing the truth at the right moments.
In this case they revealed what were considered negative points concerning the Land of Israel. This caused the rest of Israel to rebel against God and to be punished.
Fishel Mael opines that the spies from these two Tribes were the primary instigators. They initiated a critical attitude leading to the demoralization of the other spies.
Only Caleb from the Tribe of Judah and Joshua from the Tribe of Ephraim held out and spoke well about the Land of Israel and of the ability of the Israelites to conquer it.
The Tribes of Naphtali and Asher belonged to the northern Triumvirate headed by the Tribe of Dan.
We find the Tribe of Naphtali to be prominent in Norway and also present in Ireland.
The Tribe of Asher is found in Britain and Scandinavia as well as in Ireland.
Ireland and Norway are both today viciously and unnecessarily critical of the State of Israel.
Ireland in WW2 was neutral. Many Irishmen served as volunteers in the British forces but the attitude of Ireland was somewhat shameful. They did not help save any Jews.
Norway in WW2 was conquered by Germany. The Norwegian Resistance gave a good account of themselves. Norway however also contained pro-Nazi elements. The pro-Nazi head of the Norwegian Government was named Quisling and this name is now synonymous with treasonable co-operation with the enemy. Jews in Norway were turned over to the Germans to be killed. Jewish property that was confiscated by the Nazis or pro-Nazis under Quisling in many cases was never restored nor was compensation made for it.
Today, Norway is one of the leading European countries supporting the Palestinians and is antagonistic to the State o f Israel.
#2. Norway Challenged for the Funding of Pensions for Arab Murderers of Jewish Children
Norway gives money to the Palestinians and the PA (Palestinian Authority) uses this and other money to pay its terrorists. The Norwegian Government must have been aware of this since they have officials whose task it is to trace how the money is spent. The Norwegian Foreign Ministry in the letter quoted below appears to acknowledge its awareness of this matter and even to justify it! It follows that indirectly Norway funds terror against Jews!

#1. The Most Anti-Jewish Countries in Europe: Lithuania, Greece and Hungary, and Ireland,
Ireland is generally acknowledged to be the most actively anti- Israel country in Western Europe.
Norway and Ireland today are repeating the sin their Tribal representatives amongst the 12 spies committed.
