1. Prefers LessÂ Politics!
Re: Brit-Am Now no. 2308. Ten Tribes Studies
No disrespect intended to you personally, but could you please tone-down the politics and hostile commentaries included your posts and return to the fundamental goals, mission, and aims of Brit-Am: Research, Recognition and Reconciliation of the Ten Tribes. You might even find more persons willing to donate to the cause. Politics should be left to other forums.
I assume you are referring to our recent articles on the Palestinian issue and the increased emphasis on our JN postings.
This is an exceptional state of affairs on our part. It may soon change if and when the situation quietens a little.
Nevertheless, indications are that many of our subscribers actually prefer the present policy.
You said that if we cut down the political contents maybe more people would contribute to our cause?
Despite our sometimes almost desperate need for financing we have not usually, in the past,Â allowed such considerations to influence our choice of content.
Anyway who are you kidding?
You have been on our list for a good number of years. I do not remember you ever donating anything no matter how political or not political our postings were at the time.
Fair enough. Most people are like that. Some lack money, some do not feel sufficiently impressed with what we do, and others simply will not give.
As for the politics I live inÂ Israel.
The other day, the busÂ (no.291) to my hometown and which IÂ occasionallyÂ travel on was attacked by an Arab driving a bulldozer. Just before that he had ran over a Jewish father of five and killed him.
# It was apparently an Arab tractor driver from the same site who ran him over and killed him, and also injured several others when he upended a No. 291 bus waiting to pick up passengers headed for Beitar Ilit. #
After running over his first victim the terrorist then attacked the bus which fortunately was not full at the time though six persons (bystanders?) were lightly injured.
'Terrorist' Driving Bulldozer Kills 1 in Israel Bus Attack
By Brian Ries 3 days ago
An attacker rammed the front end of a massive construction bulldozer into an Israeli bus on Monday, overturning the vehicle before he was shot and killed by a police officer, authorities said.
See video clip of the bulldozer driver ramming the bus and then being shot by police:
The point is that at the moment there is a war going on. I have a family member who when needed serves in Gaza.
Apart from that not only in Gaza but everywhere in Israel things are happening.
It involves me.
They are shooting rockets in my direction.
They are liable to murder my family if they ever (God forbid) get the chance.
How involved does one have to be in order to express interest in a subject?
Like it or not whatever affects my august personage has repercussions concerning Brit-Am in general.
Not only that, but many of our audience are quite interested in these matters.
Those who are not can easily ignore what they wish to.
I assume they do that anyway.
2. AÂ self-proclaimed Irishman (possibly anÂ Â impostor)Â attacks Brit-Am and the Jewish People.

(b) Nearly every Irish I know would die blessing Israel in their voices and deeds.
Complete bollocks. The Irish hate you guys as much as they hate the British. But then you hate the British too, given the bombing of the King David hotel is a holiday for you. You are a despicable people. True Nazis or should I say Ashkenazi. You are murderers of the first order. Do not think the Irish admire any one of you revolting specimens. "It is useless to speak of an ocean to a frog that lives in a well". Israel is a deep and dark well, full of psychopathic murdering frogs and they don't see what they do as evil in fact what your people do on a daily basis is the very epitome of evil by every definition. You disgust me.
This is the Internet. For all we know you might not be Irish despite the name you use.
Sean Casey sounds like a pseudonym.
Your name looked familiar so we looked you up in our archives.
In the past you have shown your disbelief in Israelite descent and have displayed a rabid anti-Jewish tendency.
You posed some of your drivel on

To which we replied:
My Dear Mr Sean,
We thinks you are in dire need of making true repentance and expressing genuine contrition for your perverse pattern of cognition and abuse of the pensive faculty.
You may or may not have suffered fromÂ feelings of deprivation in your infancy. If such was the case you have our heartiest commiserations.
We do NOT however feel ourselves responsible for your plight.
We doubt that we have the means to rectify the aberrations of your psyche.
You should therefore seek your own salvation.
We are however somewhat intrigued as to what drives wayward souls in the pits of darkness like yourself to become so obsessed with the Jewish People and everything about them?
We also found saying more of the same at:

#3. Letter from an Enemy of Humanity and Brit-Am Reply
You revealed yourself as pro-Nazi and a denier of the Holocaust.
You said you "had enormous respect" for Arthur Koestler who wrote a book incorrectly tracing the Ashkenazi Jews to the Khazars and later killed himself.
At least there are some Jews you respect.Â Dead ones!
As usual you got your facts wrong.
# But then you hate the British too, given the bombing of the King David hotel is a holiday for you. #
This is false on both counts.
(1) Very few Jews in Israel are anti-British.
(2) King David Hotel bombing
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The King David Hotel bombing was an attack carried out on Monday July 22, 1946 by the militant right-wing Zionist underground organization, the Irgun, on the British administrative headquarters for Palestine, which was housed in the southern wing of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem. 91 people of various nationalities were killed and 46 were injured....
By nationality, there were 41 Arabs, 28 British citizens, 17 Palestinian Jews, 2 Armenians, 1 Russian, 1 Greek and 1 Egyptian. 46 people were injured. Some of the deaths and injuries occurred in the road outside the hotel and in adjacent buildings. No identifiable traces were found of thirteen of those killed. Among the dead were Yulius Jacobs, an Irgun sympathizer, and Edward Sperling, a Zionist writer and government official.
It had not been intended that the bombing have such murderous effect. The British had been warned before the explosion went off. The warnings however were inadequate and the British chose to ignore them.
The bombing was carried out as a response to the anti-Jewish polices of elements in the British Administration that then ruled over the British Mandate of Palestine.Â This was in the shadow of the Holocaust and the information that had begun to filer through concerning the fate of European Jewry.
The bombing was the work of the Irgun, a minority group. It did not have the backing of the major Jewish organizations of the time. Most Jews in Palestine were strongly opposed to the action and condemned it.
It has never ever received any official approbation from the authorities in Israel. On the contrary.
You claim that the Irish hate Jews.
Statistically about 20% of the Irish hold anti-Jewish sentiments. My own experience is that even amongstÂ this 20% there are many who would resent being classified as anti-Jewish.
Nevertheless there is much anti-Jewishness amongst the Irish.
It receives its expression in Ireland through anti-Israel propaganda, demonstrations against Israel, and identification with the Palestinians.
Its source is a mystery.
There were hardly any Jews in Ireland.
The Catholic Church could be partly responsible but it does not explain it all.
Whereas in Poland at one stage one out of ten of the inhabitants were Jewish, in Ireland it was about one out of every ten thousand!!
The Irish themselves have traditions that foreign negative low grade elements came to live amongst them.Â Perhaps this is the answer?
As for haters of Jews in general.
They very seldom believe in the Bible as literal truth.
An above average proportion of them are bad people, sometimes very bad, in their private lifes.
3. Proverbs 20:4-7 In Praise ofÂ Faith and Innocence
Â Proverbs 20:4-7 In Praise of Â Faith and InnocenceÂ
4 The lazy person does not plough in season;
Â Â harvest comes, and there is nothing to be found.
This is a fault we all have to some degree.
We tend to put off what should be done and occupy ourselves with other matters that may also be important but are probably less pressing.
So too, metaphorically we should take heed as to what is really important in life and do what we can about it now.
5 The purposes in the human mind are like deep water,
Â Â but the intelligent will draw them out.
Â The word translated above as "the intelligent" is "ish tevunah" literally connoting a man of understanding.
This is a difficult sentence. Let us translate it a little more literally and see what we have.
Deep waters is advice in the heart of a man; a man of understanding will draw it out.
Often times we have problems. The answers may be somewhere within ourselves or the surroundings.
It may take a little soul-searching or hunting around but the answer is often there. It may reveal itself bit by bit or all at once.
6 Many proclaim themselves loyal,
Â Â but who can find one worthy of trust?
The above is one possibility of understanding the Hebrew.
An alternative is provided by the Gra (Eliyahu of Vilna):
Many people will be drawn to a man who does good but a man who can be trusted who can find?
7 The righteous walk in integrity
Â Â happy are the children who follow them!
ALTERNATELY,Â from the Hebrew:
The righteous goes about in his innocence, happy are his sons who follow after him.
The word translated as his innocence is "TUMO" from the root "tam".
This connotes innocence, integrity, wholeness.
It also indicates a lack of sophistication, without guile.
We all met a few people like this in our school days or in other places. They are rare but they exist.
They sometimes tended to be too good to be true, over-trusting and believing and easily taken in but never seeming sullied because of it.
We may have looked at them with a curious mixture of contempt, pity, and envy.
In the long run they were usually the ones who succeeded in living good, happy lives, and leaving all the others far behind.
