Glenn: Why do I care about the Middle East?

Why does Glenn care so much about the Middle East? Quite honestly, a lot of it has to do with the scriptures. Faith and family are the foundation of who Glenn is and why he does what he does. But it’s not just Glenn – The Bible has been around for thousands of years and heavily influenced America and the Founders. Glenn explained why the Middle East and Israel are so important during a candid and powerful monologue to open tonight’s Glenn Beck Program.

Part 2:

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

As you’ll see in the next couple of weeks, I’m going to have some pretty frank conversations with you because my life is changing and needs to change some more. And I don’t think we’re all that different from one another.

What makes me different than most hosts on television is I’ll take you through the things that I’m going through because I don’t think we’re different. And I think they’re important. And tonight is a good example of the change in approach that I want to take on the program. I’m going to tell you why I care about things, not from a political standpoint, but why I care. And if you have a different reason, fine. But we have to be able to explain to people why things matter.

Before 9/11, I was a slug. I didn’t care about the Middle East. I didn’t know. I figured if it all went into a sinkhole…they want to blow themselves up all the time, whatever, I’m cool with that. I’m over here, they’re over there, whatever they want to do. But after 9/11, I admitted that doesn’t work, and there’s a lot that I don’t understand.

But I remember a listener called in and said what is happening to us? And I said I don’t know, but I vow to find out. And I will tell you, ever since that day, I’ve not stopped learning. I made a promise just as you did on that day, never again, and I’d figure it out. I’ve never stopped trying to understand the world around me, why the things are the way they are. That’s what led me to the idea of Progressivism and how bad it really was. And most importantly, not just why things are, but why I should care.

There are so many things that happen today, and you can’t care about all of them. So what is it that you have a gun to your head, what is it that matters to you? To me, what matters is my family and my God. That’s it. I like history because it teaches me what’s coming next, but the only thing that matters is my soul and my family.

So when it comes to the Middle East, I have something else I can look at, and you may disagree with it, but it’s important – if you disagree with the Bible that’s fine, whatever, but you have to understand the role it played in history, and why this matters. We are connected to Israel. We are wound in so deeply to Israel, and most people don’t even know it. The Bible and our own history shows us how, and I’m going to show you just a couple of things tonight.

And this is a history that I’m teaching to my own family because too many people no longer care about our history, no longer care about the history of, you know, God. They don’t care, and they’re trying to change our history to fit an agenda, and that’s what happened yesterday with Oprah Winfrey and now tonight with the Middle East.

Let me give you a little bit of history here, and excuse me, because I’m not the guy to go to on this, but in a real quick nutshell, biblical times, this is Israel. And Israel was split into two kingdoms, the northern kingdom and the southern kingdom. The southern kingdom was Judah. That had Jerusalem, root Jew, right? The ten tribes were up here in the north. That’s the Lost Tribes of Israel.

Judah remained, and they were cut off from Jerusalem. They started worshiping false idols. They became spiritually bankrupt, and God says in Jeremiah, he’s like, you know, you’re becoming the whore of the earth. What are you doing? And you’re passing it around to all of the other nations of the earth. Stop it. And he tells Judah you tell them to stop it, and you two get along. And they don’t, and they’re warned – you’re going to be taken by the Assyrians, and you’re going to be taken into captivity. Well, that’s exactly what happened.

Judah remained, but the tribes in the north, they were taken, and they went throughout the Assyrian Empire. The Kingdom of Judah was not scattered. This is where the term Jew comes from, Judah. Assyria at the time was the most feared nation on earth. Their name was synonymous with atrocity. They skinned prisoners alive. They cut off body parts. They pulled out tongues and eyes. They put piles of skulls on display so everyone knew, don’t screw with us.

Here’s what I find very fascinating on who they were. When they were finally defeated, they had all of these, this tribe of Israel as captives. But when they were finally defeated, the Assyrians and the Israelites, they fled, and they went north. And they fled out of captivity through the Caucasus Mountains. The Caucasus Mountains are where you hear the word Caucasian, the Caucasus Mountains.

What’s interesting is the Assyrians who were very good, meticulous record keepers, and who were just brutal, they settled in Italy and in the Germany area and the Russian area where Fascism comes from. But the Israelites, the lost ten tribes, they went north, and they started to scatter the other direction, and they went to the coastlines, generally in the area where our pilgrims came from.

Judah kept the Torah alive. Those who were taken captive by the Assyrians, Caucasians over the mountains, and they started to populate the western part of Europe. All of Western civilization is based on the laws of Israel. And our entire history is directly tied to this moment. Our pilgrims thought that they were completing the journey out of captivity from Moses.

The Statue of Liberty reflects this. On her base, she’s got a broken chain. She’s carrying the tablets. She has the rays of light. That’s God’s light. She’s a symbol really of Moses, and she is depicting his descent from Mount Sinai with the Ten Commandments, what keeps us solid, the Ten Commandments, the law of God.

Okay, that’s just one, but I contend these symbols are everywhere. And you can believe ’em or not. It doesn’t really matter to me. I’m talking about me, why I care. Let me show you this. If you’re anywhere around the president, Air Force One, or you’re sitting here in the office, you’ll see this flag. And we see this flag sitting behind the president a lot, but nobody really ever looks at this flag, and what this flag really means.

What’s on this flag? And I’m just going to show you a couple things. There’s more, and we’re going to get into it later. We know about the olive branch for peace and the arrows for war. There’s much more to tell about this. There’s 13 olives and 13 leaves, the 50 stars around the shield, from many one, but what’s this? And what does this have to do – why would I be telling you this when we’re talking about Israel?

Well, when Joseph from the Bible, when Joseph is with his brothers, he tells his brothers that he had a dream, and he said I had a dream where the sun, the moon, and the stars all bow down to me. You mean like the sun, the moon, and the stars? That’s what this is, the sun, the moon, and the stars. Nobody talks like that. Nobody says the sun, the moon, and the stars unless it’s biblical, so is the concept of unity biblical – out of many, one, one God.

There’s strong symbolism with the number 13 being represented everywhere, 13 arrows, 13 stripes, 13 stars, 13 olives, 13, 13, 13. Yeah, I know, well that’s the 13 colonies. That’s what everyone will tell you, and that is one answer, but there is another one that many people believe. Thirteen, what else is 13? Twelve disciples surrounding Jesus, but more importantly, I think, the 12 tribes of Israel.

Well, there’s only 12 tribes, Glenn. What do you do with 13? Hmm, except the tribe of Joseph split into Manasseh and Ephraim, and those were in northern Israel. That’s the northern Kingdom of Israel. That’s the 13 tribes. Okay, hogwash. That’s all garbage. Okay, you say that’s not what any of these symbols mean on this flag. Okay, that’s reasonable, okay.

Let me take you to not the Presidential Seal; let me take you to the Great Seal of the United States. It’s the same eagle, right? Except where you have the sun, the moon, and the stars, what replaces it? Well, it’s this thing here. I don’t even know what that thing is. You don’t know what that is? I know, that’s pretty hard. It’s 13 stars again but strangely 13 stars in the shape of the Star of David. Wow, why is that in the shape of Star of David?

Well a couple of reasons – one, Haym Solomon. He was the guy who helped us. We are bound; we owe the people of Israel – Haym Solomon, that’s why it’s in that triangle. Now, what’s this surrounding it? I don’t know. Well, when Moses led his people out of Egypt, what did they follow during the day? Oh, cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. That’s what this means.

By the way, you can find the image on the back of your one dollar bill, and if you really think that’s a stretch, if you really think okay, Glenn, that’s crazy, well, you’re right. That one was done in, I don’t even know when. In the late 1800s is when they finalized this, and then I think it was, I don’t know, Wilson or one of them that finally said okay, we’re really going to use this one all the time.

So let’s go back to the original seal, the one that Thomas Jefferson and Ben Franklin and John Adams recommended. It wasn’t this. It was instead that one. Tell me that one, Moses leading the Israelites across the Red Sea by a pillar of fire. Hello? Look at the clouds around the fire in the center in exactly the same position as the eagle. Listen to me, the slogan that they wanted to have was opposition to tyranny is obedience to God, opposition to tyranny, to pharaohs, is obedience to God.

They felt Moses was the figurehead of America. So why am I telling you all of this? Man, I have been called an anti-Semite by everybody under the sun for the last six years. As soon as I started caring, the Muslim extremists started calling and writing, and we had to have security because Glenn Beck has gotta stop saying these things and stop saying that Muslim extremists are violent, or I will cut off his head myself. That was my favorite quote the FBI gave me from one extremist.

No, you’re not violent – you’ll cut my head off to prove that you’re not violent? Nobody wants to be a pariah. I didn’t care a few years ago, but after 9/11, I promised I would find out what was going on. So what is it? We are a nation that is based on Judeo-Christian values and the Bible, period. You might not buy into the olives and the branches and everything else. It’s fact. It’s fact. But there’s no way to deny that the majority of our laws come directly from the Scriptures, right directly from Deuteronomy.

And the Bible comes from Judah, not the northern tribe, the southern, Judah. They were supposed to preserve it, and they did. The people of Jerusalem, we owe our existence in many ways. We owe our laws to them. Do you really think that we – I am a religious guy. Others who are not will think this is hogwash, but I don’t care anymore. I haven’t for some time. I’m stating who I am.

We owe the people of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, we owe our support and our allegiance, not blind allegiance, and I’m not talking about putting troops down on the ground. We have to be on not only their side but God’s side. When Thomas Paine wrote about his disbelief in God, Franklin felt compelled to write him, giving him a scathing critique. It was like father and son.

Here’s part of it. He said, he wrote to his adopted son, if you will, Thomas Paine, “I would advise you, therefore, not to attempt unchaining the tiger, but to burn this piece before it is seen by any other person; whereby you will save yourself a great deal of mortification by the enemies it may raise against you, and perhaps a good deal of regret and repentance. If men are so wicked with religion, what would they be without it?”

Samuel Adams wrote the same thing. He wrote, “When I heard you had turned her mind to a defence of infidelity, I felt myself much astonished, and more grieved, that you had attempted a measure so injurious to the feelings, and so repugnant to the true interest of so great a part of the citizens of the United States.”

Here’s what he’s saying, how dare you? You have actually grown up, and you have benefited from a society that has Judeo-Christian values. You don’t have to go to church. You don’t have to like church. You don’t even have to like God. But to condemn God and try to say to the rest of society that’s nonsense, how dare you? The only reason why we exist is because of God.

I feel like I have to shake the shoulders of some of my friends and look ’em in the eye and say without the Torah, without the people of Judah, you have no law. Ours doesn’t exist. Our country doesn’t exist. Nothing exists. You get rid of the Torah, you get rid of the Bible, nothing works anymore. Then what are our laws based on? Opinion, man’s opinion. Oh, well that’s good.

This is why I care about Israel and what we’re going to do tonight. If Israel goes, if the Bible goes, you need an entirely new way to govern, because ours is nonsense then. And that’s exactly what all the powerful on the earth would like. I want you to take a second and look at what they want to replace our government and our system with. They’ll tell you right now well, we’ll just kind of wing it. Oh really?

When they really get down to it, they’re all saying that the State Capitalism, as they call it, Communist China, State Capitalism, the model of China, that’s what the future is going to be. May I remind you, may I beg you, that system has people throwing themselves off of buildings. That system is evil. And we have gone dead inside, and we don’t even know it anymore. I don’t want to live that way.

The other model that is currently out there and being talked about is sharia law. Oh, well that’s crazy. Is it? Not for a billion people on earth based on the Qur’an. I don’t want that either. The other model will be something that nobody really has articulated yet. Don’t be silly. We’re not going to do either of those. Well, give it to me, because I’ve never sold a house, even a crappy house, with absolutely no idea where my family is going to live. Have you? Because I haven’t. Until you can show me the address of where we’re headed, I’m not moving. What are we doing?

Sorry, one thing I don’t want to do is get my blood pumping. I want you to sit down with your kids, and I want you to teach them. I want you to teach them American history like we told you last night. Thank you, Oprah Winfrey, sincerely. Thank you for reminding us about Emmett Till so we could remind America who he really was. And then I want you to teach your kids biblical history, because it is our history, and it matters as I will show you tonight.

    You don’t have to assume since it IS correct.  We’ve had a VERY special relationship with France for a very long time.  We fought in the trenches on the Western Front alongside them in World War 1 and landed on Normandy in World War 2 on behalf of them and did what the Vichy resistance couldn’t achieve.

    Actually Vichy wasn’t resistance, it was a collaborating government.  The objective of Normandy was not to liberate France, but to start a second front against Germany in addition to the Russian Front.  Are you going to claim Russia and US had a special relationship just because they fought in a war against a common enemy?

    “Jerusalem; root – ‘Jew’ ” – didn’t take long to get to the first HUGE lie there, Glenn. Takes 2 minutes to look up the etymology of the name. You should also look into ‘salem’ – root – Shalem – a bronze-age god.  The rest of this potted, join-the-dots, ‘history’ is just as crazy. Inferring that the tribes of Israel and Assyria were responsible for populating vast areas is such a massive lie. These areas had been populated for millennia before this! This really is batshit crazy and utterly wrong.  Statue of Liberty = Moses? Utter, utter, utter crap! The statue is a representation of the Roman Goddess Libertas. Of course there’s a broken chain – it’s about US independence after all. “That’s just one…   …you can believe them or not, it doesn’t matter to me…” If you choose to believe this shit, then you’re welcome to; but don’t go kidding yourself that you’re believing something factual because Glenn told it to you. You’re believing lies and bullshit. Presidental Seal Biblical? Nonsense. 13 being 12 tribes plus 1? It’s the original 13 colonies – no wonder it keeps on cropping up. Honestly – he says he likes history – but then goes on to warp it to the point where it’s devoid of facts. That’s not history.

    This is where I disagree with Glenn. What Glenn and others need to get straight is Israel is not a holy religion because it’s just another country which is run by a bunch of kleptocratic collectivists. Does anybody really think God is governing Israel? In truth I would sooner believe that  Mephistopheles is in charge.
     
    Can you handle the truth? I hope so because here it is: The dimwitted Christians can be just as dimwitted as any of the other theocratic zealots blinded by their own interpretations of a “Holy” book. .

    Glenn needs to take a class on the History of Western Civilization (basic undergraduate course). There he would get an accurate idea of from where, what and who monotheism stemmed from as well as Judaism. If I were worth millions, I would spend my life in college learning all that I could. I wouldn’t succumb to the ideas of BS historians like David Barton.

    I am not saying Beck is correct in his assertions, but college courses do not always teach the true history either. They are more or less taught from the view point of the instructor, which in my experience has always had a leftist view point.

    It is not fact.  They’re called the ten lost tribes for a reason, nobody knows what happened to them.  The Assyrians only describe the deportation of portions of a few of the tribes.  These meticulous record keepers have no records of any deportations for half the tribes they supposedly moved. 
    Even then there is siginificant speculation as to where they ended up, ranging from Japan, to the Chinese Jews or the Persian Jews and even the Pashtuns in the mountains of Afghanistan.  What Glenn is proposing here is a Mormon belief and hardly backed up by any evidence.  It is also astoundingly racist to suggest that because of our genetics and our supposed ancestors our forms of government were predetermined, especially given the extensive Jewish and Christian tradition in Eastern Europe.  Certainly we cannot credit the judeo-christian tradition with the creation of democracy as both traditions have extensive monarchical histories.  Rome and Greece had representative governments of various success and length far sooner than the Jewish people.

    But event if his history is right…we didn’t do all of that for France b/c they helped us in the revolution.  We entered both wars as a result of being attacked, the second much more severe than the first but in WWI the Germans had no qualms with sinking American Merchant Marine ships.

     I couldn’t agree more.  Zionism itself has nothing to do with religion.  Its a 19th nationalist movement that considers Judaism to be a race/nationality with the goal of gaining a Jewish homeland (they almost went to Uganda) and creating the “New Jew” (creepily similar to the supreme race the Nazis wanted).  The early ones were all socialists with a fair number of atheists in the group too.

    I can’t believe the comments I’m reading here… Glenn states over and over that this is his belief and you can take it or leave it. He is just giving us his reasons why he feels we are tied to Judean belief. We all have our on beliefs (religious or not) so do we assume they are all crap…. For him his religious beliefs have helped shape Glenn into the good and caring person that he is today and what he is working for is a great cause.. In the foxhole are you going to pick apart your buddy because of his beliefs or are you going to work together to fight for your common belief in the freedom America stands for. Whatever motivates Glenn to do what he is doing is just fine with me. All he is trying to do is help us to wake up to what is happening to America before everything we love about country is gone.

  • Lex Rex

    OK, I might as well post a comment.  Glenn’s heart is in the right place.  But I am beginning to think America should leave other countries alone.  Don’t help them and don’t hurt them.  Anything that happens outside of our borders is none of our business.  Bring our troops home from everywhere.  Will many countries go to war if we don’t continue PaxAmericana?  Yes, so what?  Let them die and decrease the surplus population (I know, Scrooge said that).  Shall we do business with other countries?  Yes, of course.  And business men and women can handle that, the government doesn’t have to be involved, except in extraordinary cases, like fixing tariffs.  Business men can handle the Somali pirates.  Five pirates in a 30-foot motor boat.  Hey, I can handle the Somali pirates myself, we don’t need the Navy doing that.  What if other countries cheat our business men?  So what, that is free market capitalism, right?  You win some you lose some.

          About Israel:  Are they really God’s people today?  Didn’t they reject Him in the desert with Moses?  Didn’t they reject Him as their King, and they wanted a human king like Saul?  Didn’t Israel reject the prophets God sent?  Didn’t Israel reject Jesus the Christ, the Messiah, God with us?  Haven’t they been rejecting him for 2000 years?  Maybe God is mad with them.  Hey, I don’t want anything bad to happen to the Jews.  The Holocaust was horrible.  But if they want to live in a bad neighborhood, surrounded by enemies, I don’t think it is our job to get involved.  I would be for bringing all Israelis to the USA, and sending all American Muslims to Palestine, if that would solve the problem.

         I guess life has made me pessimisstic.  My love has grown cold.  My favorite book is Ecclesiastes.  Really, I love it!

    I was going to ignore this, but I decided that I can’t allow a lie to go unanswered.  The root of the Hebrew name “Jerusalem” is the Hebrew word “yerusha,” which means inheritance.  As to the rest, I really don’t care what you think.

    Original sources are helpful to find when quoting Founders:

    John Adams’ statement in context: “Twenty times in the course of my late reading have I been on the point of breaking out, “This would be the best of all possible worlds, if there were no religion in it!!!” But in this exclamation I would have been as fanatical as Bryant or Cleverly. Without religion this world would be something not fit to be mentioned in polite company, I mean Hell.”        

    Jefferson’s quote?  see http://www.monticello.org/site/jefferson/superstition-christianity-quotation
    Status: We have not found this quotation in any of Jefferson’s known writings.
    Comments: The second part of the listed variation (“Millions of innocent men…”), is legitimate and comes from Jefferson’s Notes on the State of Virginia, Query XVII. Here is the quotation with the material that actually precedes it in Notes:”Difference of opinion is advantageous in religion. The several sects perform the office of a Censor morum over each other. Is uniformity attainable? Millions of innocent men, women and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined, imprisoned: yet we have not advanced one inch towards uniformity. What has been the effect of coercion? To make one half the world fools, and the other half hypocrites. To support roguery and error all over the earth.”[2]Jefferson was not excoriating religion, but coercion.

    Turns out that in what you quoted, Thomas Paine was referring to NATIONAL churches… which the Founders were very much against, not against churches or religion in general.  When Thomas Paine later claimed there was no watchful and guiding Providence, though there still be a “general” Providence, many of the Founders, including Benjamin Franklin, Samuel Adams, and Benjamin Rush called him out on it. John Adams wrote in response, “The Christian religion is, above all the religions that ever prevailed or existed in ancient or modern times, the religion of wisdom, virtue, equity and humanity, let the Blackguard [scoundrel, rogue] Paine say what he will.”

    Want some evidence that they felt connection to the Jews?   “I really wish the Jews again in Judea, an independent nation…for your Jehovah is our Jehovah, and your God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is our God.- John Adams

     Well said, Sam Fisher.  Those anti-Israel, anti-God, anti-Mormon, anti-Christian, anti- truth people who are trying to come across as intelligent and in-the-know, show just the opposite.  “Mormons”, the nick-name for the Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-day Saints, is Christian.  I wrote it separately to emphasize  vyduxawonuxe’s  prejudice against the Latter-day Saints (aka: Mormons) in particular.  The Jews are where they were intended to return to and suppose to be.

    I feel sorry for you – it is really sad when someone has to use such foul words to express himself because he hasn’t a clue how to do that in a civil way. I have a question for you.  Do you believe in Heaven and Hell? Well I definitely do, God created them both as He created everything.  So let’s assume you say no, no Heaven, no Hell and certainly no God.  What happens after death? Well, if I am right – I will spend eternity in Heaven with God and all like minded believers and the nay-sayers (you) will spend eternity with Satan and his ilk. (Look it up)  If you are right then we will all spend eternity the same way – nothingness forever.
    Seems to me that if you are right (and you’re not) I have nothing to lose, but if I am right, the only thing you have to lose is your soul in Hell for eternity. Maybe you should give it some thought before sentence yourself to eternal damnation.

    Glenn, thank you for speaking of a Biblical truth which is rarely taught in the church, and therefore the body of Christ does not know its origins.  Glenn is speaking of a critical Biblical truth that most Christians are ignorant of, the difference between the House of Israel (Ephraim, Samaria, Joseph, Northern Kingdom, Isaac) and the House of Judah (Southern Kingdom, house of David).  It will help unlock scripture, especially prophesy, because we must understand how Yahweh distinguishes between the houses.  For example, Ezekiel was a prophet to the Northern Kingdom, 150+ years after it was dispersed.  Who was he talking to?  And where were they?   Matthew 10:6, Jesus said, “But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”  James 1:1 “James, a servant of God and the of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.”  So much more could be said.  A great book that walks you through the scriptural understanding is “Judah’s scepter and Joseph’s birthright,” by J.H. Allen, copyright in 1917.

    I see the middle east as simply an extension of what has been happening in that region since the dawn of agriculture. One after another rapacious, violent, greedy group, tribe, culture, or civilization seizes the resources and enslaves the people of another region. Over time add to that situation the effects of religion, wars, empires, colonialism and economics and the result is today’s toxic mix of potentially thuggish violence and indiscriminate mayhem which could embroil the world. The American concept of “government of the people, for the people, by the people” is a shining star for places like the middle east, but can also be an empty mantra used by politicians to continue the “old ways” with different devices. This applies to the fortunate Americans as well as the hapless societies of the middle east.

    From the Church of Latter-Day Saints Website: “About one hundred years after the capture of the Northern Kingdom, the Southern Kingdom was conquered. The capital city of Jerusalem was destroyed in 586 b.c., and the remaining two tribes of Israel were taken captive. Later, some of the members of these tribes returned and rebuilt Jerusalem. Just before Jerusalem was destroyed, Lehi and his family left the city and settled in the Americas. The Lamanites are descendants of Lehi’s people.”
    “The Israelites are to be gathered spiritually first and then physically. They are gathered spiritually when they join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This spiritual gathering began during the time of the Prophet Joseph Smith and continues today all over the world.”
    “The tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh will be gathered to the land of America…”

    It comes from the Book of Mormon: “The Book of Mormon is a volume of holy scripture comparable to the Bible. It is a record of God’s dealings with ancient inhabitants of the Americas and contains the fulness of the everlasting gospel. The book was written by many ancient prophets by the spirit of prophecy and revelation. Their words, written on gold plates, were quoted and abridged by a prophet-historian named Mormon. The record gives an account of two great civilizations. One came from Jerusalem in 600 B.C. and afterward separated into two nations, known as the Nephites and the Lamanites. The other came much earlier when the Lord confounded the tongues at the Tower of Babel. This group is known as the Jaredites. After thousands of years, all were destroyed except the Lamanites, and they are among the ancestors of the American Indians.”

    As a Jew from Israel I send my appreciation to Glen for his support !Just a small comment about the origin of the word “Jew”… as Glen correctly stated, it derives from the word Yehuda (Judah) which was the tribe that was in the majority after the exile of the 10 “lost Tribes”.  However, not 100 % of the 10 Tribes were lost, and some individuals still remained after the exile.   “Jew” was a term that came even at that time, to refer to all the Hebrews that remained , even from other tribes like in the book of Esther 1:5 where Mordecai is referred to as Mordecai the Jew from the tribe of Benjamen.  Likewise, all the Hebrews in the book of Esther are referred to as Jews despite their Tribal affinity.
    It seems highly unlikely that (as Glen theorized) the Pilgrims were from these lost tribes, as those who, even until today, are really from those lost tribes, preserved some traditions.  For example it would seems that the tribe of Muslims in Afghanistan known as the Taliban are from among the exiles due to the fact that they have an oral tradition as well as rituals that date back to the first Temple period.  Likewise the Ethiopian Jews who have since returned to Israel and have been ruled by some of Israels leading Rabbi’s like Ovadia Yosef to be from among the exiled Jews of the first Temple period.  There are the Bene Menashe tribe from India etc….
    The Pilgrims on the other hand, and America’s founding fathers, while having a reverence for the “old Testament” did not actually possess a tradition that they were from these tribes nor, as far as I know, did they claim to be.  ​  It is a well known fact that the founding Fathers of America saw themselves in the perspective of modern day “Jews” who were inheriting the land of Canaan ie: America.  They even considered making Hebrew the national language.
    However, this does not, in any way, make Americans members of the lost Tribes, as I have had non-Jews on this very site try to tell me in the past.I couldn’t agree with Glen more, however, that with out the Torah the world would revert to chaos.  Therefor, I encourage all our Gentile friends who truly care about Israel and the future of the world, to help those Jews who have not returned to their roots in the Torah to do so without trying to convert us to Christianity.The modern state of Israel is waging a war against Torah Jews and we need people who recognize the value of Torah and the Jewish people to speak up and encourage us and our secular government to appreciate who we are and the role Gd wants for us.

    Sorry I was just trying to provide sufficient evidence.  Concise: no one knows what happened to the lost tribes.  Historians and archaeologists have hundreds of different theories.  Its a bit like the Roanoke Colony.

    A view based on liberalism would be the exact same as yours. Support for Israel is universal across the political spectrum. Why is it such a badge of honor to support Israel? They’ve completed distorted the history on this subject, and even ignoring that they are doing horrible things in the present. They indiscriminately deny water to Palestinians-including women and children. The most recent bombing campaign of the Gaza Strip began at like 10am or something like that, when all the school children would be out in the streets and exposed. In Israel it is impossible to own land. All land is government owned and leased to civilians. This is a big way of denying non-Jews land when their lease comes up. Israel has uprooted entire towns of non-Jews due to “archaeological discoveries”. How can any person who respects freedom and human rights support a country that promotes these policies? A country who had a policy of breaking children’s arms for throwing rocks at armored tanks?

    Almost every word here is factually and historically wrong. The Statue of Liberty is not carrying the 10 commandments. Assyrians never went to Europe, never became fascists. Fascism doesn’t come from Russia—Mr. Beck perhaps has it confused with communism, which is and was radically opposed to fascism. The Jews did not become Caucasians by walking through the Caucaus [sic] mountains, only to then become Englishmen because they settled “near coastlines.” None of this happened outside of Mr. Beck’s imagination, and surely both he and all of his viewers know this. America is a wonderful place, but WE DO NOT HAVE A MONOPOLY ON GOD, ON GOD’S PLAN, OR ON GOD’S LOVE. The idea that God has a favorite country is completely contrary to the idea of infinite, all-loving God.

    My book about the Abrahamic Birthright prophecies being fulfilled in the United States was published in April of 2002. the original manuscript was copyrighted in 1999 and it predicted that Revelations 18 — the destruction of Great Babylon City — was to soon take place on Manhattan Island focusing on the World Trade Center. A copy has been in the Library of Congress since then. When Jacob blessed Joseph’s sons he foretold that the younger son — Ephraim — would become a great “company of nations.” (Gen 48:19) He described this great “union of states” later in his “last days” predictions of what was to happen to Joseph’s progeny in the following chapter, as did Moses in Deuteronomy Chapter 33. The phrase that Jacob used, translated most often as “multitude of nations” means literally “fullness of the Gentiles”. Paul uses this exact phrase when he admonishes the Gentile believers in Rome for lifting themselves above the non-believing Jews. He tells them of a “mystery” (this is one of the names written on the head of Babylon the Great) — thatthe Jews would be “hardened in part until the time of the fullness of the Gentiles.” Romans 11:25

    That times has come.

    This is actually not refuted by any archaeological, anthropological or biological science. Modern Jewish groups are genetically identified by the “Kohanim marker” which traces the Levite priestly class that had no tribal homeland but occupied the towns of all the tribes of Israel. The problem with using this marker to identify members of the Northern Kingdom is that the Bible records that the Levites left the North and went to the Southern Kingdom of Judah before the Assyrian Captivity. There is now no way by DNA to rule in or rule out anyone of mixed European origin as descendants of the Lost Tribes.
