The opening scripture reading tells of the history of the portion of land in Palestine known as “Samaria.” It was the homeland of the tribes of Ephraim and Western Manasseh of the kingdom of Israel [northern kingdom]. But after the tribes of the Kingdom of Israel and most of the tribes of the Kingdom of Judah was captured and put into captivity by the Assyrians; it was repopulated by the five tribes of Babylonians and Lebanon/Syrians.
You will notice that I added Lebanon/Syrians. That is because when I read my March edition of the Virginia Christian Israelite, written by L. E. Ernst, I was taken by surprise. How encouraging is it that two different writers are writing about similar issues at the same time? Let me quote from this article:
“…Today’s Jews may be accurately grouped under two categories: The Ashkenazim and the Sephardim. The former grouping comprises some 90% of all modern Jews. Ashkenaz was the grandson of Japheth. Japheth was a brother of Shem. This means that 90% of all Jews are not descended from Shem, hence they are not ‘Semitic.’”
Let’s review: Noah had three sons; (1) Ham, (2) Shem and (3) Japheth. All those descended from Ham are known as Hamites; all those descended from Shem are called Shemites; and all those descended from Japheth are called Japhethites. Over 90 % of all Jews today are descended from Japheth; less than 10% are descended from Shem: so how can anyone who is against the Canaanite/Jews honestly be called an “anti-Semite?”
I was born in 1970, and still remember that old breed of American men: the guys who grew up during the Great Depression and fought in WWII and Korea. They were as tough as nails and had a moral character made of granite. I can still remember the quiet and stoic strength of this, and perhaps the last, generation of “real” American men. They commanded fear and respect from us young boys merely by their presence; it alone told us they would tolerate no nonsense. This was also a time in America when some children were still respectful and teachable. Most of all I recall how these men — who had struggled early on through dire poverty without asking for a hand out from the government and who faced mortar shells and machine gun fire on the battlefield — disdained talking.
They were men of action and to them talk was too easy. Anyone can talk: it is the great equalizer with such human scum. Talk requires no cost, no demonstration, and no accountability, which is why it attracts the worst types: hustlers, cowards, sissies, and ne’er-do' wells. These great men I knew as a child held themselves in too high regard to be equalized with such human scum. They didn’t talk so much because they “did:” They proved themselves with hard work and physical courage. But when they did speak you can bet everyone shut up and listened, because they knew it was important. Our true American men have been replaced by ever chirping parakeet males who will be our downfall. Our manly values and institutions have been supplanted by those of the chirper.
