I've never seen so much BS in my life.
Those who cannot debate, defame; cannot refute, ridicule. The plain truth about the Israelite origins, the Hebrew roots, of the Anglo-Saxon-Celtic peoples is overwhelming, recognized by a growing number of Jews and British Israelites and Gentiles (as prophesied). Brit Am Israel is a Torah-observant, Jerusalem based organization, that helps restore the identification of the Israelite tribes. However, there is nothing new under the sun: Joseph's brethren were blind to his identity and he stood right before them!
Since you go to a Reform "temple" in a self-imposed exile, failing to follow Judaism to the Jewish homeland of Israel - I'm not surprised this BIBLICAL TRUTH floors you. You undoubtedly still assume Judaism is nothing about race, in complete contradiction to the facts on the ground. Regardless if you remain in denial, these things remain true: The Bible is an ethnocentric book with its focus on the family of Jacob; there are Twelve Tribes of Israel, the Lost Ten Tribes are ethnic peoples, Joseph isn't Jewish, it's the Promised Land of ISRAEL (named after an ethnic, tribal, patriarch) with biblical border definitions (which is why even secular Jews were wise enough to reject Uganda), and Israel and Judah are to ultimately become, collectively speaking, One Nation Under God, a truly United Kingdom.
Certainly NONE of the prophecies about becoming a GREAT NATION and a COMMONWEALTH OF NATIONS, world powers, breadbaskets of the world, have been fulfilled in little Judah.
Your faithless kind must be who columnist Shmuel Schnitzer lamented as the new Jewish people who are "preparing to deny our [Jewish] rights, both the divine promise and in terms of REFERRING TO THE LAND BY THE NAME OF ITS PEOPLE, "The Land of Israel' -- a land which belongs to the Children of Israel, from then and to eternity...".
Years ago Mr. Schnitzer questioned, in the Israeli newspaper Maariv, “[W]hat kind of Jewish people will this be with no attachment to its land, without all the places of the book of Joshua, the wonderful vistas there, without the intensity of the prophetic vision, without the heritage of our fighters who spilt their blood for the country which was promised them and their descendants?” (Sept. 14, 1994).
