By definition, British Israelism is a doctrine based on the hypothesis that people of Western European and Northern European descent, particularly those in Great Britain, are the direct lineal descendants of the Ten Lost Tribes of the ancient Israelites.  

To put it bluntly, it is the doctrine AND teachings of the following:

1. The modern day geographical Israel as a whole is actually The Tribe of Judah [AKA The Jews].

2. Members of The Tribe Of Levi [AKA The Levites] are identifiable via different variations of the surname/last name "Levi"  

3. USA & UK are the modern day Tribes of Joseph, USA being Manasseh & UK being Ephraim.

4. The rest of the lost 9 Tribes Of Israel are modern day Western European countries.

Now if you're convince that these teachings are both false and total bullshit, then you are not alone. To believe in British Israelism, you would also have to deal with the contradiction concerning the Gentile [European] nations. Remember, Jacob/Israel is of the bloodline of Shem, not Japheth. And the Gentile nations are of the bloodline of Japheth.  

But all of that aside, what is your take on British Israelism?

There is some evidence of some truth in some of the claims....

But 95% is bullshit.....

If I find them too obnoxious, I break them.

I have a close friend that believes British Israelism and that America is prophetic Manessah.  I don't know...I can see some of the train of thought and I did some research quite a few years ago.  This included the theory that the Irish legend of Ollamh Fodhla, was actually Jeremiah who fled Israel with the daughters of King Hezekiah at the time of the Babylonian exile.  However there is no concrete historical evidence to prove this.  

I also found another theory about Ollamh Fodhla that you can read about here

British Israelism is an intriguing theory to ponder but that's about as far as it goes for me right now...a theory.

Then shall the king say to those on his right hand, Come ye, the blessed of my Father, inherit the reign that hath been prepared for you from the foundation of the world;

And the king answering, shall say to them, Verily I say to you, Inasmuch as ye did to one of these my brethren -- the least -- to me ye did

Complete and utter BS that one would have to ignore biblical evidence as well as historical evidence to come to that conclusion.

Will the young Prince of Cambridge be circumcised? This royal tradition dates back to King George I, who imported the custom from his native Hanover.

Queen Victoria, convinced that the British royal family was descended from King David, had all her male offspring circumcised. The tradition continued through Edward VII, the Duke of Windsor and Prince Charles, who was circumcised by Jacob Snowman GP at Buckingham Palace in 1948. His brothers Andrew and Edward also underwent the same procedure.

According to Anthony Holden’s biography of Prince Charles, Snowman was summoned to the palace five days after the christening. The rabbi was the official mohel — a man qualified to carry out circumcisions — of the London Jewish community and he was chosen rather than the royal physician to perform the ritual.

Princess Diana was said to be opposed to the idea, and most royal observers believe she broke with 150 years of royal tradition by not having her sons circumcised at birth.

I remember reading an obscure Jstor article once that argued along the lines that German common law (which later became anglo-saxon law, and then what we have now) was based on Jewish law, can't for the life of me find a link though.


I'll post it if I ever find it.
