The Lost Israelites were the First Buddhists – Part Four
In this Six Part Series, on Buddhism and the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel what we will learn is that the origins of the First Primitive Buddhists have a firm archeological footprint as we explored in Part One in the archeological digs by UNESCO and the National Geographic into the primitive Shrine at the Maya Devi Temple, the birthplace of Prince Siddharta.
Then we learned in Part Two that a Prince of the Lost Shakya (Sons of Isaac) Israelites called Prince Siddharta Gautama gave up his royal throne and after his “enlightenment” became the Supreme Buddha. His legendary existence 2,500 years ago has made him a “messiah” for the Lost Ten Tribes who are part of the Buddhism today.
We then moved backwards in time, to an era near to or before the birth of Prince Siddharta and learned in Part Three that there was the original Buddha, who was a Kohan (Levite Priest) a descendant of Aaron the High Priest, who traveled to the land of the Lost Israelites to bring a message of redemption and restoration to the Lost House of Ten Israel to someday be reunified back into brotherhood with the Jewish people.
Now in Part Four, we will continue the journey trying to comprehend what happened during the exile of the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel, that made these legendary peoples “G-d’s Battle Axe”. As history will attest, it was they who over the centuries would become the only undefeated peoples first against the invincible military might of Alexander the Great and later Rome, and still today, as the Pashtun Tribes of Bani-Israel in Afghanistan today defying Great Britain in the 19th century and then Russia and later the United States and NATO in the 21st century.
The Continent of India over the centuries has been the homeland of Buddhism, the Brahmans of Hinduism and finally the Muslim peoples from the Middle East in Islam. Within them all are hidden the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel. This is a historical, sociological, spiritual and a prophetic fact of history. Yet “how lost” are the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel is our quest?
We have to make one conclusion, even though the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel appeared lost, the G-d of Israel knew who they were, where they had been and where they were going. Truly, He was watching over His own. Within them, the Lost Ten Tribes will soon become part of the spiritual vortex that will guide their people home as a beacon of hope in that future day to their tribal homelands in the land Shomron (Samaria) where their forefathers once lived upon the “mountains of Israel.”
The Exile of the Northern Tribe of Israel
In the last half of the 8th century BCE, the Northern Kingdom of Israel was taken captive in five waves of invasions by the Assyrians as they were sent into exile for their apostasy against G-d. To the lands of the Medes they were taken and there they began their wanderings across the face of the earth. They were known as the Saki, Sacae, or the Sakya translated as the “house of Isaac” It was the Prophet Amos, who stated that he was not a prophet but a cattle herder and an examiner of sycamore, yet it was he who then taken behind a rock and given a “thus saith the L-rd” that was to be given as a personal message to Amaziah the king of Israel:
Amos 7:16 - “And now, here the word of HaShem! You say, ‘Do not prophesy concerning Israel nor preach about the house of Isaac.’ Therefore, thus said HaShem, ‘Your wife will be promiscuous in the city and your sons and daughters will fall by the sword, and your land will be divided up by lot; you will die on contaminated soil, and Israel will surely be exiled from its land.”
In a series of invasions, the Assyrian kings in a piece-meal manner, dismembered the Northern Kingdom of Israel. The first and second invasions were by Pul, called King Tiglath-Pileser where two thirds of the population of the Northern Kingdom of Israel were first taken into captivity. Then came the third invasion, in 721 BCE by King Shalmaneser when officially the capital of Samaria capitulated and was destroyed after a three year siege. The Northern Kingdom of Israel after that date officially no longer existed.
II Kings 17:5-6; also II Kings 18:9-11 – “Then the king of Assyria came up throughout all the land, and went up to Samaria, and besieged it three years. In the ninth year of Hoshea, the king of Assyria took Samaria, and carried Israel away into Assyria, and placed them in Halah and in Habor (by) the river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes."
The last or the remnant of the Northern Tribes of Israel were sent into exile, when the forces of the Assyrian Emperor Sennacheribtoppled the last of the resistance of the Northern Israelites and then headed to Jerusalem. There Sennacherib laid siege to the city of Jerusalem in the days of King Hezekiah and the Prophet Isaiah, holing them up behind the walls of Jerusalem like a canary in a cage.
Yet, the G-d of Israel had a surprise for the imperial ruler of Assyria in the year of 702 BCE for a massive bolide of millions of volts of an electromagnetic energy flue shot down from the heavens and vaporized 185,000 Assyrian soldiers as they slept amongst their metal helmets, shields, spears, and metal coats of armor laying across the hillside. The metal literally became an “electrical ground” that attracted the vortex of energy and destroyed the entire Assyrian camp. Sennacherib was seriously burned and escaped back to Assyria, only to be assassinated by his own sons, Adrammelech and Sharezer, who then fled and his third son, Esar-Haddon, reigned in his place.
II Kings 19:35 – “And it came to pass on a certain night that the angel of the Lord went out, and killed in the camp of the Assyrians one hundred and eighty five thousand, and when people arose early in the morning, there were the corpses – all dead.”
Truly there were a lot of the Northern Israelites who also had escaped to the city of Jerusalem for protection and reunited back with their Jewish cousins that were assimilated back into Jewish culture and society. To this day, this remnant of the Israelites has been a symbolism to the Jews that they represent all the 12 tribes of Israel. Yet the exile and later in the future the reclamation mission to redeem the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel appeared by the prophets of Israel and Judah to be separate redemption from the restoration of the Jewish people back to their homeland in Roman Judea after the Great Holocaust.
Then there was a fifth invasion by Assyria by King Esar-Haddonthat most biblical scholars do not mention, for only a cryptic mention of it is recorded in the Second Book of Kings and a brief notice in the Second Book of Chronicles. All the former citizens of the Northern Kingdom of Israel were now gone; deported into exile, or fled and migrated on their own, or had assimilated into the Jewish population in Jerusalem and the Southern Kingdom of Judah.
And so in the year of 676 BCE, the Assyrian King Esar-Haddon, the son of King Sennacherib arrived forty-five years after the fall and destruction of the capital city of Samaria. The land was now desolate and the Assyrian troops headed to Jerusalem on another mission, not to lay siege or destroy Jerusalem, but to take captive, capture and punish the most “evil” king that ever sat on the throne of Kings David and Solomon in Jerusalem; King Manasseh.
Instead of deporting the Kingdom of Judah, Esar-Haddon bound up the wicked King Manasseh and took him in chains to Babylon. Esar-Haddon punished and reprimanded Manasseh for being such a cruel and heartless king to his people that Manasseh later repented and reformed his ways. He later returned to rule and serve the G-d of his people.
II Chronicles 33:11-13 – Therefore the Lord brought upon them the captains of the army of the king of Assyria, who took Manasseh with hooks, bound him with bronze fetters, and carried him off to Babylon. Now when he was in affliction, he implored the L-rd his G-d, and humbled himself greatly before the G-d of his fathers, and prayed to Him; and He received his entreaty, heard his supplication, and brought him back to Jerusalem into his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the Lord was G-d.”
And so it happened. The Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel had now been taken captive and dispersed into the lands of “Halah, and Habor, and Harah (Aria, Ariana, Arachosia, and Harat) and beyond to the River Gozan (also called Gauzanitis or the Cyrus River) as recorded in 1 Chronicles 5:26 and also taken to the “cities of the Medes” as recorded in 2 Kings 17:6. As we shall see, they were called by Amos as the “house of Isaac” for it was as chosen by the divine will of HaShem, the G-d of Israel when He spoke these words to Abraham:
Genesis 21:12 - “Be not distressed over the youth (Ishmael) or your slave woman (Hagar); Whatever Sarah tells you, heed her voice, since through Isaac will your offspring be considered yours.”
The Sons of Isaac were known as the Sacae, the Sakai, the Sakya and the Pasargadae, the Massagetai, all of which were the Lost Ten Tribers of the House of Israel
Modern scholarship with archeological and anthropological specialization into the nomadic tribes that roamed the Eurasian lands between modern Russia and China are conclusively agreeing with the Jewish and European Lost Israelite research over the last two centuries. The recent article titled, “The Saka and Scythian Central Asian and Siberian Steppes: 700 BCE – 300 BCE”, we read in Alternate History the following:
Alternate History – “According to some written sources, in the middle of the 1st millennium B.C. the nomads were actively involved in the political and military expansion of the Achaemenid Empire. Later, the nomads founded powerful political states including Kangyui. It would appear that under the blows of the ethnically diverse nomads, the Greco-Bactrian Kingdom fell.
These same nomads formed the socio-political nucleus of first Parthia and then the Kushan Empire. Based on research archaeologists believe that the earliest communities of people to appear in the Eurasian steppes at the beginning of the 1st millennium B.C. subsisted mainly on cattle breeding. They mastered horseback riding and were thus able to move quickly through vast territories, resulting in a growing interaction between the populations of different and sometimes quite distant areas.
Advanced achievements in the economy and in production of material wealth spread in a chain-like manner through the steppes. These achievements also brought mutual spiritual enrichment to the participants. From a historical point of view, the transition to mobile life marked a point in time when the nomads entered into the political events which were taking place among Middle Eastern countries.
Echoes of these happenings have reached us through Herodotus' stories about Scythian campaigns to countries in Asia Minor and from stories about the Scythian conquest of Media prior to their return to their ancestral motherland, the steppes north of the Black Sea. Unfortunately, researchers have no detailed written histories of the nomads who inhabited the Asian steppes east of the Caspian Sea.
Based on specific finds archaeologists believe that the Asian cattle breeders apparently knew the material and spiritual culture of the Near Eastern peoples even earlier than their western counterparts. The Avesta is the earliest written source to note the existence of Central Asian nomadic tribes. Yasht XVII, 55-56 describes “tura with fast horses” who were enemies of the sedentary Iranians, and also describes the Danava-Turas (Yasht XIII, 37-38).
According to V.I. Abayev (1956, pp. 43-45), the "Danava-Turas" (tribe of Dan) were Saka who inhabited the banks of the Jaxartes (Syr Darya River). Comparison between the “Aryans” and the “Tura” can be made only with reference to their way of life and partly their religion.
According to B.A. Litvinsky (1972, p. 156), the name Turais was used in connection with the work of Zarathushtrai. It is possible some Tura tribes maintained close contacts with sedentary-agrarian populations of Central Asia not later than the first half of the 6th century B.C. During this same time period Saka was another name used to denote the steppe nomads.
The Saka are mentioned specifically in the list of peoples conquered by the Achaemenid Persian kings, Darius and Xerxes. The earliest written sources to register the name Saka are found on the Bisutun (6th century B.C.) and the Persepolis reliefs (5th century B.C).
Subsequently, the Saka are more frequently mentioned in ancient texts. For example, Herodotus believed that Cyrus did not conquer the Saka (Herodotus 1,153-154). Rather the Saka later submitted to the Persians (Herodotus VII, 92) and became part of the XVth Achaemenid satrapy (Herodotus III, 93, 3). They served with the Persian Navy (Herodotus VII, 96, 1; 184, 2) that fought at (Battle of) Marathon (490 BCE) (Herodotus VI, 113,1) and (Battle of) Plataea (479 BCE) (Herodotus IX 31,4-5; 71, 1), and Mardonius' Army (with the Persian Wars with Greece in the 5th century that included the Battle of Thermopylae(480 BCE) and after the Persian defeat at the Battle of Salamis(Herodotus VIII, 113,2). They were also neighbors of the Bactrians (Herodotus I, 153, 4; IX, 113, 2) (Dovatur, et al., 1982).”
This information is explosive for it appears that the Lost Israelite Saka and Scythians were a major part of the ebb and flow of Greek nation-states contesting against Persian Empire. Not only that as BibleSearchers Reflections has identified numerous times in its articles and blogs that Cyrus the Great was a Pasargadae Israelite and his military general, General Gobryas a Guti chieftain of the Tribe of Gad toppled the most powerful and impregnable city in the ancient world, Babylon, and liberated their cousins, the Jewish people in their 70th year of exile in the land of Babylon. This evidence appears to becoming so overwhelming in ancient and modern scholarship that in reality, the Persian Achaemenid Empire was truly the Lost Israelite Persian Empire so much that they were one in the same that Herodotus was impelled to make this admission:
Herodotus – “The Medes (Lost Israelites) had exactly the same equipment as the Persians; and indeed the dress common to both is not so much Persian as Median.” (7.62) “These Medes were called anciently by all people Arians; but when Media, the Colchian, came to them from Athens, they changed their name. Such is the account which they themselves give.” (“The Medes” History of Herodotus, 7.7)
This really is no different than today as the major battle lines are being drawn up between the Lost Israelites of America and the European Union now in opposition against Russia, China, and probably Persia-Iran in our present geo-political landscape while the central focus again will be; will the Lost 10 Israelites once again rise up again and rescue the rising anti-Semitic fever that is rapidly spreading across the former homeland of the Ashkenazi Jews whose central religious and spiritual stronghold was in Ukraine.
And so it came to be that these exiles, known as the Sacae, Sakai in Persia and throughout Eurasia and later in India as the Sakhs or the Sakyan, the Northern Ten Tribes were sent according to Strabo, to the east of the Caspian Sea. The Beni-Israel (sons of Israel) then later migrated over to Hindustan (Northern India below the Himalayas, and then onwards to Burmah (Burma) and later Siam (Thailand). Upwards in eastern central Asia there is a lake called ISSYK Kul (Isaac’s Lake). This can even more clearly understood for in Hebrew are there are no vowels so IKKYK gives us “Isaac”.
It was the Sacae who laid siege to the land of Bactriana after Alexander the Great’s forces left the area and ruled over the region from Aral Lake to the mouth of the Indus River. From there the Lost Israelites migrated into central India and there fell under the dominion of the Parthians, who were also Lost Israelites, and later became a part of the Persian Second Sassanid Empire that was ruled by the Lost Israelite Sacae.
BibleSearchers Reflections fills in part of this history in its article on the Pashtun Tribes in Afghanistan title, “The Durrani Pashtun Afghan Bani-Israel Empire and its Legacy – the Islamic Messiah, the Mahdi and the anti-Messiah, the Dajjal”
Mount Falaksair reaching 20,528 feet into Heaven as seen from the Kalam Valley controlled by the Pashtun Bani-Israelites near Swat, Pakistan near to the Pashtun Fortress of Aornus that was Alexander the Great last Military Siege
BibleSearchers Reflections – “History would suggest that here was a land that imperial powers should avoid. Before the American Coalition’s invasion of Iraq in the year of 2003, the American military became quickly immersed in punishing aerial strikes against the Al Qaeda warriors fighting and protecting Osama bin Laden. Those without a sense of history did not remember that it was in the region of Afghanistan that the invincible Macedonian military of Alexander the Great was met one tribe of people who refused to ally themselves with him.
The Persian Shah Darius Nothus was a prisoner of his former Bactrian Satrap called Bessus. Bessus stabbed the “Great King” and usurped the title for himself as the Artaxerses V, the successor of the dying Shah Darius.
Found by Alexander’s scouts, Darius was almost dead as he lay on a baggage train pulled by an ox. Greeted by Alexander, Darius pronounced his enemy as his successor and was thankful that he did not have to die alone. Seeing himself now as the true successor of the Persian Achaemenid throne of Cyrus the Great, Alexander spent the next three years pursuing the “usurper” from Bactria as he traveled through Media, Parthia, Aria (West Afghanistan), Drangiana and Arachosia (South and Central Afghanistan and Alexandria Eschate (“The Furthest”) in modern Tajikistan.
With a little review of history we remind ourselves that here was the land of the ancient deported Israelites. We also notice that throughout all of these regions were the tribal lands where the Lost Tribes of the House of Israel settled for a while and then packed up their belongings and began to wander again.
The Massagetae (“Great Wanderers”) tribal regions were known to be the homeland of the Tribe of Manasseh who with their Queen Tomyris defeated and killed Cyrus the Great on the Jaxartes River east of the Oxus when he came to subdue and to conquer them. The Parthians were ruled by the Ar-Sakes, known as the “ruling Saks” of the “Children of Isaac”. To the east and north of the Himalayan Mountains, was the land of the Sakae, who were named after their ancestral forefather, the Patriarch Isaac.
We have already learned that that the founder of the Achaemenid throne, Cyrus the Great was of the Tribe of Gad (Pasargadae Tribe), the same tribe of which his military commander, Gobryas the Guti was also a tribal ruler. Cyrus and Gobryas may have been close relatives.”
This history is once against collaborated with modern historians of the tribal nomads of Eurasia who lived also along the Indus Valley, in the article titled in the Alternative History blog, “The Saka and Scythian Central Asian and Siberian Steppes: 700 BCE – 300 BCE”, we read again:
Alternative History – “The history of the Saka and their combat with the Medes has been preserved by Diodorus (II, 34,1; II, 43,6). Ctesias also reported the Saka wars against Cyrus and further commented that the Saka women fought together with the Saka men. Xenophon (circa 445-335/354 B.C.) confirmed that Cyrus conquered the Saka (I, 1, 4).
Diodorus presented Efor's version: the Saka belonged to the Scythian tribe, were shepherds, lived in grain-producing Asia, and were nomads by origin. According to Efor (405-330 B.C), the name Saka denoted Scythians who came to reside in Asia.
Arrian (90/ 95 B.C to 175 CE.) (Ill, 8, 3; VII, 10, 5) and Quintus Curtius Rufus (1st century B.C) (V, 9, 5; VII, 4, 6; VIII, 4, 20) offered relevant information stating that nomadic Saka tribes were among those who offered resistance to Alexander the Great when he tried to penetrate the Central Asia steppes.
The same events are also mentioned by Pompeii Trogus (1st century B.C to 1st century CE.). Strabo (64/63 B.C to 23/24 CE.) commented more than once that the Saka were among the nomads living east of the Caspian Sea (VIII, 2). According to this historian, the Saka took part in the conquest of Bactria (VIII, 2; VIII, 4), seized the best lands in Armenia and, upon reaching Cappadocia and the Black Sea region, collided with, and were defeated by the Persians (VIII, 4).
Strabo also recounts that Cyrus was defeated in battle by the Saka and that the Saka later ambushed the Persian army killing nearly all the troops. Fl. Josephus (37-100 CE.) mentions the Saka in the context of armed nomads attacking Parthia (XX, 4, 2). Polyaenus (2nd century CE.) describes Saka military operations against Darius (XII, 12). Claudius Ptolemeus (2nd century CE.) places the Saka on the banks of the Jaxartes, west of Sogdiana (IV, 12). In his opinion, the Saka had no cities, but rather lived in forests and in caves.
Elian (late 2nd to 1st half of the 3rd century CE.) reported some early Saka customs. Ammianus Marcellinus (circa 330-400 CE.) mentions the Saka as neighbors of the Sogdi and referred to the nomads as savage people without cities inhabiting uncultivated lands which were fit only for cattle breeding (XXIII, 60).
Herodotus (VI, I, 64, 2) wrote that "the Persians refer to all the Scythians as Saka." Pliny (VI, 17) also knew this but made the distinction that the Saka were "Scythian tribes" who "lived on the other side of the Jaxartes." The authors of antiquity, each in his turn, used the name "Scythian" to mean all of the nomads in both the western and eastern Eurasian steppes.
In modern scientific literature, the term Saka designates the Iranian-speaking cattle breeding tribes who inhabited the steppe regions of Central Asia and Eastern Turkestan2 in the 1st millennium B.C. The Massagetae, frequently mentioned by ancient authors, are treated as a Saka tribe who populated the western areas of Central Asia.3 The Saka have left us no script and historians are obliged to use fragmentary passages.
Moreover, information about the Saka in the works of the ancient authors is not too reliable. This fragmentary and poorly constructed information sheds no light on the formative stages of the Sakatype communities. Also, some data are mythological in nature. Therefore, we must rely on archaeology and paleoanthropology to supply objective scientific data to solve the general problems of the early nomadic history of Central Asia.”
Such is the dearth of secular scholar who fail to penetrate the biblical texts and identify what would be obvious to an 8th grade elementary student, the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel were spread all over the Central Asian Steppes and over the centuries lost even contact of who they were and which of their Hebrew tribal brothers they were warring against.
As Alexander the Great sought to pacify the Pashtun Bani-Israel tribes in Afghanistan and Pakistan, before turning to the Indian subcontinent, he invited all the chieftains of the satrapy of Gandhara in the region of Pakistan, Jammu, Kashmir, and Eastern Afghanistan to submit to his authority. Of these chieftains, the hill clans of the Pashtun Tribes of Bani-Israel refused. They were the Aspasioi, the Assakenoi clans of the Kamboijas who were known in ancient Indian literature as the equestrian or “horse tribes” called the Ashvayanas and the Ashvakayanas.
Alexander was specifically furious with these tribes for refusing his imperial request. They also were strategically near his supply lines that traversed over the Hindu Kush region into India, so the Pashtun Bani-Israelite tribes became a strategic military threat to Alexander the Great. Taking personal charge of his forces, Alexander invaded the Pashtun tribal regions with furious intent.
The Aspasioi tribes lived along the Kunar River and the Alishang Valley in northeastern Afghanistan and the Peshawar Valley where the Pashtun Bani-Israelite Tribes live today. They were called the Aśvakas or Aśvakayanas and in the Sanskrit classical literature the Assacenii/Assacani were known as the “breeder of horses” that were specially used as war horses. These were the same as the Sacae-Scythian Israelite warriors to the west and north of the Caucasus Mountain and the Black Sea.
George Moore in his book titled, “The Lost Tribes” wrote that the Sakhs and the Yavanas (Greeks) were part of the army under the command of Alexander the Great, who himself was possibly an Argive Danite (Tribe of Dan). It was they who went on and help Alexander the Great in his Sakyan conquest of the Panjab region of India that in itself then gives us the links and the clues between the Sakai and the two great Parthian dynasties that were called the Ar-sakid and the Sassanids, the later that became part of the Parthians rulers of the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel. So Bible Searchers Reflections pondered upon that theme in 2006 in the subtitled article, “The Kings of Media and Persia” and the Second Persian Sassanid Empire” with these words:
BibleSearchers Reflections – “It is only natural to puzzle with the question, who are the “kings of Media and Persia?” What are their relationships with the time of the end? While we looked backward into the dim and mystic past of mankind, we seek to find that luminous trail of the ancestors of the seventy nations and tongues and peoples that the Jewish sages state that the G-d of the Creation planted to surround His chosen people.
We first look at the location of the ancient lands of the Medes and the Persians and in unison come to the conclusion that this is the present land of the Nation of Iran. How are the “Medes and the Persians” in the vision of Daniel 8 to be merged into a global force contending for world domination at the final conclusion of the age?
The history of the Persian Empire, according to Classical historians begins about 5000 BCE with what is called the Jiroft Kingdom. With the arrival of the “Aryāna” whom we call today the Aryans, these Proto-Indo-Iranians were recognized as a “noble” race as attested in the Sanskrit and the Persian languages. The linguists of today recognize the Indo-Aryans as the Indic subgroup of the Indo-Iranian branch. It is believed that the Aryans began what was known as the Median Dynasty. As the ancient historian Herodotus (484 – ca. 425 BCE) wrote:
Herodotus - "The Medes had exactly the same equipment as the Persians; and indeed the dress common to both is not so much Persian as Median." (7.62) "These Medes were called anciently by all people Arians; but when Media, the Colchian, came to them from Athens, they changed their name. Such is the account which they themselves give." (“The Medes” History of Herodotus, 7.7)
Through the centuries the Persian culture moved from the Achaemenid Dynasty that built the First Persian Empire. During this short lived empire of about fifty years, according to the Jewish sages, the fate of the Jewish people became entwined with the Persian court when the Jewish Queen Esther married Cyrus (i.e. Darius the Mede, Xerses, Artaxerses or Ahasuerus). It would be their son the half-Jewish Persian emperor, Darius I, who would send his people home in the final decree to the Land of Israel. Is this hard to believe?
May we reconsider the fact that the only people who lived in that empire and brought with them their culture and their history intact from that era to our modern age were the Jewish people? If so, we might want to reconsider that the history of the human race history written by the Catholic monks in the Middle Ages might not be the most historically accurate.
For Christian prophetic scholars who believe firmly that the Orthodox Roman Christian Church did “change times and laws” may also want to consider that it was not only the Seventh-day Sabbath that was changed to Sunday worship but the Spring and Fall Festivals of the Lord were also changed plus also the calendar of the history of mankind.
The conquest of Alexander the Great of the First Persian Empire was soon succeeded by the Parthian Empire and then the Sassanid dynasty of the Persians. The Second Persian Empire of the Sassanids gave way and was conquered by the Islamic conquest. Later a massive invasion entered Persia by the Great Khan Ögedei Khan of the Greater Mongolian Empireand nearly destroyed the Khwarezmid Empire of Persiain 1223.
Later the Caliph of Baghdad was starved to death while the population in Baghdad was virtually massacred by Hulagu Khan of the Il-Khanate in Persiain 1258. Later the conquest by Tamerlane came after the 1370s and finally the rise of Iran’s first Shi’a Islamic state under the Safavid dynasty from 1501 to 1760 moves our history into the final era of this age.”
With these thoughts in consideration, we can now perceive the connection with the two great Parthian dynasties called the Ar-sakid (sakid-Isaac) and the Persian Sassanids, the latter were the successors of the Israelite King Cyrus Achaemenid Empire each of which defeated the armies of Imperial Rome in various battles in which Rome soon kept them at an arm’s length. So what again is the connection; all of them were the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel and all of them will be participants in the great redemption of the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel soon in our future as the G-d of Israel brings together the House of Israel and the House of Judah together in one brotherhood, called Klal Yisrael (All Israel) united as the “Greater Israel” in the prophetic “Era of the Messiah” in the “World to Come.”
The Khazarian Rule of the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel in Ukraine and Crimea
Then we consider the great mystery of the Khazars or the Kosi of the Dark Ages that was called the Tatar dynasty of the Khozars who left their homeland on the central and northern regions of the Black and the Caspian Seas and became tribal lords in Central India from the 6th to the 10th century CE. They served as a proxy buffer between the Byzantium Christian Empire and the Umayyad Islamic Empire.
When this alliance was ended about 900 CE, the Byzantium rulers began to encourage the Alans in the north to attack Khazaria and diminish his power over Crimea and the Caucasus region. At the same time the motivation of the Byzantium rulers was to Christianize the growing Rus’ power which was accomplished with the rise of the Kievan Rus King Sviatoslav I of Kiev who went down and conquered Atil, the capital and destroyed the Khazarian State.
Here in this same region, the American President Barak Obama and the Russian President Vladimir Putin are peering at each other, “eye-to-eye” as a strategic world conflict, as reported by the Prophet Daniel in the future great war between the “Ram and the He-Goat”, appeared ready to erupt in our soon future. Again we are pitting the Lost Ten Tribes in Europe and America against the strategic alliance of Islamic Iran with Russia and China.
Two centuries earlier in the 8th century CE, the Khazar royalty and a large segment of the aristocracy chose to convert to Judaism, while a large segment of the population in that nation continued to worship a mosaic montage of paganism, Tengrist Judaism, Byzantium Christianity and the Muslim faith.
Out of this strange event, when the G-d of Israel becomes involved in the affairs of the nations of the world, modern theorists, along with Karaite Jewish scholars today claim that modern Ashkenazi Jewry in Eastern Europe emerged from a hypothetical Khazarian Jewish diaspora. In other words, they are claiming that the Ashkenazi Jews are “fake Jews.” Of course this has fomented a “Pandora’s Box” of virulent attitudes of anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism against the Modern day Nation of Israel.
The Khazarian Jewish diaspora history as being the foundational ancestors of the modern Ashkenazi Jews today was recently refuted substantially on October, 2013 when the genetic scholarly study by seventeen scholars of genetic DNA published in Nature Communications an astounding discovery that a large percentage of the Ashkenazi Jewry in Central and Eastern Europe have a common maternal ancestry, that came not from Jewish mothers from the Near East in the Province of Judea as assumed and previously supposed.
Instead, according to the scholarly analysis, after the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple of King Herod in Jerusalem in 70 CE, the females and children were killed in a massive genocide and the large male population was deported from the Land of Israel and transported back to Italy and the surrounding European regions as slaves.
There they married European women principally of Italian and European stock. The children of these Jewish fathers with European mothers became the principle female founders and female ancestress of the Ashkenazi Jewish community in Europe today.
Destination Yisrael went on to analyze this data, and came to the overwhelming conclusion that the European Women who married the Jewish male slaves that were taken from Jerusalem after the destruction of King Herod’s Temple were actually the Israelite Matriarchs now living in Northern Gaul, known as the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel.
Modern Ashkenazi Jew’s ancestral Matriarchs were not Jews”
The growing evidence is that the Kingdom of Khazaria was located right in the region of modern Ukraine and the Crimean area. This become such a hot spot in April, 2014 when it was contested by Vladimir Putin of Russia by taking control of the Crimean region against the European and American bid to swing Ukraine into the western European and American political and military control. Yet what it highlights even more is the fact is that ancient Khazaria was the center of the Lost Israelite Scythian world in which they controlled with a military power that no other peoples could contest.
The Davidian Dynasty in Georgia, the “Israel of the Caucasus”
Strange as it may seem, very little has been written and documented by the ruling elite of Georgia that is called today the “Israel of the Caucasus.” At the turn of the first millennium CE, this entire region was under the rule of a Prince of King David whose name was King David Agmashenebeli(1089-1125 CE). Later upon his death, King David’s granddaughter, the Davidian Empress, the Princess of David, Queen Tamar became the imperial ruler of the Greater Georgian Empire. They both shared in the imperial quest of creating a United Georgian Dynasty that came down from the Davidian lineage of the Bagrationi family that started with the rule of Bagrat III, the King of Abkhazis and the Kartvelians (975-1008 CE).
This Georgian Kingdom prospered in the 11th to the 13th century under the rule of King David IV (1089-1125) and his great granddaughter Tamar (1184-1213) and is celebrated even today as the “Golden Age” of Georgia. It was an august era of imperial rule, military exploits and a remarkable expansion of their Jewish culture during the era when the city of Jerusalem was attacked and the Muslims and Jews alike were slaughtered in a massive genocide by the Roman Christian Catholic Crusaders between the 11th and the 13th century CE.
Even more strange is that the region where the modern State of Georgia ruled between the Black and the Caspian Seas is also the same region that we have discussed throughout this series as the homeland of the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel from the 6th century to the 1st century BCE. One again it the same region that is now inflaming the world with Russia again poised to take possession of Crimea and destroy the Nation of Ukraine. And we doubt that the G-d is actively involved in the affairs of the nations today?
With all the political rhetoric between about who actually controlled the regions surrounding the Black and the Caspian Sea, it does not take much historical sleuthing to discover that the linkage between this region by the rule of the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel is astounding yet largely ignored by modern historical scholars of the region. It was the ancient Sakai or the Sakya who survived the invasions of the Turkish descendants of Genghis Khan and continued to rule, not as Lost Israelites, but instead invited the Jewish rabbanim to the land of the Khazars and convert the royal and the aristocratic families in to Judaism.
Yet to the south through Georgia and down below the Caspian Sea the Hebrew sector of the Lost Ten Tribes has as one of their original domiciles their tribal homelands where the Nation of Afghanistan today is located. It was Dr. Moore who wrote:
Dr. Moore – “Their sovereigns had, as early as the tenth century, been from time immemorial Hebrews.” But apart from this historical link, there is abundant evidence as to the Israelite origins of the Afghan Pathans. They resemble the Hebrew family. The Afghan Pathans have always called themselves Beni Israel, still all the while expressing contempt for the Jews.
Among their tribal names are those of Yussuf-szye (tribe of Joseph) and Izak-szye (tribe of Isaac). Moreover, Hebrew names of places and persons are very numerous. These names existed before the Afghans were Mohammedans. They call themselves Pathan not Afghan.
Their language known as Pushtu, is said to contain more Hebrew roots than any other language. The name Cabul (applied to the capital, the river, and the nation of the Afghans) was anciently spelled Cabura, the phonetic equivalent of Habor. Near Cabura, Ptolemy places a nation called Aristophyli or “the Noble” dated 100 B.C. Inscriptions at Girnar and Delhi have the names Dan, Sak and Goth upon them. On the wall of a rock temple in Kanari, about 20 miles from Bombay, a Hebrew inscription with Pali characters, occur the names Saka, Dan and Gotha in connection with the devastation wrought upon them by Cyrus.
The Aspasioi (Aśvakas or Assacani) tribal warriors fought fiercely against the Macedonian-Persian forces under Alexander the Great and as one historian wrote: “They were brave people and it was hard work for Alexander to take their strongholds, of which Massaga and Aornus need special mention.”
The Massagatae Tribe that killed Cyrus the Great were the same Israelite tribe at the Citadel Fortress of Aornus at Massaga that were Slaughtered later by Alexander the Great
In this battle Alexander was wounded in the shoulder by a dart but in the end the Aspasioi Pashtun Bani-Israel tribe lost the war and about 40,000 were sent into slavery. The Assakenoi in the regions of the Swat and Buner Valleys fought also with valor against Alexander’s force of 30,000 cavalry, 38,000 infantry and 30 elephants. The Bani-Israel military strongly set up a fierce resistance in the cities of Ora, Bazira, and Massaga.
It was at the siege of the Fort of Massaga that after many days of bloody fighting the fort fell, but only after Alexander was seriously wounded in his ankle. During the battle the Chieftain of Massage was killed and the command of the army was taken over by his mother, Cleophis, who fought with her forces in defense of the Bani-Israel motherland. This battle also brought all the women fighting side by side with their husbands and sons. The resistance was so severe that according to Quintus Curtius Rufus:
Quintus Curtius Rufus – “Not only did Alexander slaughter the entire population of Massaga, but also did he reduce its buildings to rubbles."
Afterwards the Pashtun populations were slaughtered at the Assakenoi stronghold at Ora. The Bani-Israel population was then in flight up into the mountain to their impregnable fortress at Aornos with the Macedonian forces in close pursuit. Aornos was located in the Swat region of Pakistan. This region became the last great siege of Alexander the Great and the last stand of the Pashtun Bani-Israel tribes. This battle was recorded by Alexander’s biographer Robin Lane Fox, as “the climax to Alexander’s career as the greatest besieger in history”. It was Victor Hanson who on writing of this war commented:
Victor Hanson – “After promising the surrounded Assacenis their lives upon capitulation, he executed all their soldiers who had surrendered. Their strongholds at Ora and Aornus were also similarly stormed. Garrisons were probably all slaughtered.” (Hanson, Victor (2002). Carnage and Culture: Landmark Battles in the Rise to Western Power. pp. 86. Cited by Wikipedia, “Alexander the Great”)
The siege took place in the midst of winter in the years of 327-326 BCE. Located in the mountain region of Pir-Sar at Swat, Alexander was also fighting a legacy and a legend for it was his own legendary ancestor, Heracles, identified by the Indians as their god, Lord Krishna, who was unable to take the fortress at Pir-Sar which the Greeks called Aornus, to the north of Attock in the Punjab region of India.
The region was highly defensible for it rose 1700 meters upon a mountain spur. There it rose above the narrow gorges in a bend of the River Aornus that was a tributary for the Upper Indus River. Upon its summit was a flat plain with springs supplying fresh water. There was a large region with enough field space to grow crops for sustenance. No military commander ever hoped to starve the population to submission.
For four days the fighting was intense but again this strategic fortress fell and the entire population was massacred. It was the account written by Ptolemy and Alexander’s secretary, Eumenes, who gave us a description of the final battle. As written:
Wikipedia – “Ptolemy and Alexander's secretary Eumenes, whose account provided material for all later ones, reconnoitered and reinforced a neighboring spur to the west with a stockade and ditch. His signal fire to Alexander also alerted the defenders of Pir-Sar, and it took two days of skirmishing in the narrow ravines for Alexander to regroup. At the vulnerable north side leading to the fort, Alexander and his catapults were stopped by a deep ravine. To bring the siege engines within reach, an earthwork mound was constructed to bridge the ravine with carpentry, brush and earth.
The first day's work brought the siege mound sixty yards closer, but as the sides of the ravine fell away steeply below, progress rapidly slowed; nevertheless, at the end of the third day, a low hill connected to the nearest tip of Pir-Sar was within reach and was taken, after Alexander in the vanguard and his first force were repelled by boulders rolled down from above. Three days of drumbeats marked the defenders' celebration of the initial repulse, followed by a surprise retreat.
Alexander hauled himself up the last rock face on a rope. He cleared the summit, slaying some fugitives (Fox), inflated by Arrian to a massacre, and erected altars to Athena Nike, Athena of Victory, traces of which were identified by Stein. (Fox, Robert Lane. “Alexander the Great”. Penguin, 1973, pg. 343) cited in Wikipedia “Anorus”)
From a strategic standpoint, the capture of the mountain citadel of Aornus made no military sense. The fact that he accomplished such a feat that the gods could not accomplish sent a clear message to India, the Indian subcontinent was “facing the avatar of a god more powerful than Krishna”. The esteemed Livia historical website in an article written by Jona Lendering titled, “Alexander the Great” admits that:
Jona Lendering – “Alexander's campaign through this area was in fact little short of genocide. When he was lightly wounded during the siege of a hill fortress and it was taken, all defenders were massacred. In another valley, the terrorized population fled after destroying their own villages. A sad story is told about Alexander's men who, during a cold night, burned the small wooden boxes they found in the neighborhood of a town they were besieging. Too late they discovered that these boxes were coffins; the population was shocked about this sacrilege. When the capital of the Assacenes, a town called Massaga (near modern Chakdarra), surrendered, Alexander demanded that the mercenaries that had defended the town join his own army, but after they had placed themselves at Alexander's mercy, he ordered their extermination.”
Let us review quickly the multitude of names that grew out of the great hordes of the Lost Israelites. According to Frederick Haberman:
Frederick Haberman – “It appears, that Cyrus himself was defeated and killed by the Saki in 529 BCE (352 BCE according to the Jewish calendar). Herodotus and Diodorus tell us that King Cyrus the Great was killed by the Massa-getai, under their Queen Tomyris on the Jaxartes River. Another prominent name attached itself to lost Israel, that of Getai, which is the Median form of Guti or Catti, and likewise means “wanderers,” or “adventurers.”
And so indeed, for the G-d of Israel sent His people wandering over Eastern and Western Asia for centuries and later into Europe. Massagetai, means, according to Professor George Rawlinson, (Canon of Canterbury and Camden Professor of Ancient History) “Great Wanderers,” and it was they who defeated Cyrus the Great when he attempted to invade their territory on the Jaxartes River east of the Oxus.” (Frederick Haberman, “Tracing our Ancestors”, pg. 125)
The Massa-getai tribal people that killed Cyrus the Great were also the same tribal peoples that were later slaughtered by Alexander the Great Then we have the Persian general under Cyrus the Great, General Gobryas the Guti as Gobryas the leader of the Israelites, that were known as the ‘Wanderers” or the “Adventurers” whose peoples were allied also with the Massagetai which some scholars have identified with the Tribe of Manasseh of the House of Joseph. Later these same Israelite tribes would morph again as the “Scythians of the North” the famed horsemen of the Northlands whom we remember let great hordes of golden ornament, warrior armaments, hairpieces, and also armor clad for their own horse that were made out of gold. As written by Wikipedia in the final history of Alexander the Great we read:
Wikipedia – “In the winter of 327/326 BC, Alexander personally led a campaign against these clans; the Aspasioi of Kunarvalleys, the Guraeans of the Guraeus valley, and the Assakenoi of the Swat and Buner valleys. A fierce contest ensued with the Aspasioi in which Alexander was wounded in the shoulder by a dart, but eventually the Aspasioi lost. Alexander then faced the Assakenoi, who fought in the strongholds of Massaga, Ora and Aornos. The fort of Massaga was reduced only after days of bloody fighting, in which Alexander was wounded seriously in the ankle...Alexander was now free to pursue his journey into Punjab, and his reputation for invincibility seemed to be established in India.”
After the massacre of the Lost Israelite tribes defended the Fortress of Aornos, Alexander the Great crossed over the Indus River. There he met King Porus who ruled the Punjab region of India in the epic battle called the Battle of the Hydaspes in the year of 326 BCE. With Porus’ defeat, Alexander made him an ally and appointed him as a satrap to rule in his behalf. There on the Ganges River to the east were the Nanda Empire of Magadha and further the Gangaridai Empire in Bangladesh, but the mutiny of the exhausted Macedonians in Alexander’s army stalled any further advances into the Indian Continent.
So back to Susa in 324 BCE, there at the Persian southern palace built on a hilltop fortress, was also the residence where the Prophet Daniel once resided when the G-d of Israel opened up the veils of heaven and gave Daniel a vision over 2,300 years into the future when the final act of the Vision of the “Ram and the He-Goat” would be fulfilled in the Final Drama of the Ages far into the future. In this mini-rehersal of that day in the future, Alexander the Great headed for Babylon for a respite from war; this time he would meet his final end.
On June 10 or 11 in the year of 323 BCE, Alexander the Great died in the Palace of King Nebuchadnezzar II at the age of 32 in Babylon. Like King Belshazzar celebrating Babylon’s 70 years of keeping the Jewish people in exile in Babylon, so Alexander was celebrating his exploits with his favorite Admiral Nearchus drinking with Medius of Larissa. No doubt, he was celebrating his victory against the Lost Israelites that vaulted him to the spheres of the gods of the Greeks.
Yet of the numerous assassination conspiratorial plots suggested, it appears that the favorite of the plots was guided by Alexander’s Macedonian general, Antipater, who Antipater early supported both Philip II of Macedon and Alexander the Great and was made Viceroy over all of Alexander’s military forces that traversed the then known world to India. But now Antipater may have purposefully plotted to poison Alexander for Antipater had been recently removed of his military command as the Macedonian Viceroy and he may have been fearing his fate, so Antipater’s son, Iollas, who was Alexander’s private wine-pourer may have been
So there during the celebration, Alexander was struck with agony after downing a large bowl of unmixed wine in honor of Heracles, his hero. For eleven days, he became progressively weaker and died in a state of extreme agony after which Antipater became the regent of all of Alexander’s Empire in the year of 320 BCE.
Long has been the list of what poison could have been used to assassinate Alexander the Great. One of the modern favorites over all the more ancient poisons used over the ages could have been the spiking of Alexander the Great’s wine with Veratrum Album, known to the ancient Greeks for producing prolonged agony in the victim approaching death. In 2003, an article published by a scientist with the New Zealand National Poison Center proposed the white hellebore, called Veratrum album in the medical journal called Clinical Toxicology as the fateful poison that ended the life of Alexander the Great.
Even then, the legends of the ancients came forth as part of the theorists that the natural poisoned water from the mythical River Styx was the source of the poison. This river today has been identified as the Stream called Mavroneri (Black Water) located in the Aroania Mountains near Nonacris in Arcadia, near Sólos. For in these waters over the ages grew a poison produced by bacteria in the waters of the River Styx that contained Calicheamicin.
Today, this poison was rediscovered from the bacterium Micromonospora echinospora when out of this bacteria discovered in the 1980’s from the chalky soil called the “calchi pits” in Kerrville, Texas a compound that was extremely toxic to all human cells. Out of it was created “calicheamicin y1 that created to treat non-solid tumor cancer Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) one of the most fatal of the leukemia family of cancers and known today as the most potent antitumor agent developed by modern medicine.
Pausanias insinuates according to a myth that Alexander was poisoned by the waters from the River Styga (Styx) so that he could make a sacred vowel to the ancient Greek gods and so he had asked for water to be fetched from Styga in order that he also could make a sacred vowel to make a sacred vow, as the ancient Greek gods. It was Hercules, who is reported to have escaped through the underground River Styga, assisted by Athena, while he was seeking to find Kerverus in Hades.
When a Greek god sought to be bound by an oath, it was Zeus who sent Iris to collect water from Styga in a hydria, so that it could be transported to Olympus and be a “witness” to an oath or a pledge. For what reason? For it was believed that the “black waters” of the River Styx had magical properties and thereby was used to seal the testimony for sacred vows and oaths.
When a god wished to become bound by oath, it was Zeus who would send Iris to collect water from Styga in a hydria, in order to transfer it to Olympus to become a “witness” to these vows and pledges.
According to the mythical tales of the Greeks that created the legend of the immortality of Achilles at the battle and siege of the Citadel of Troy, it was Achilles who lost his life with the arrow from the bow of the Israelite Trojan prince Paris. This was because it was Achilles’ mother, Thetis, who baptized her son in the sacred lake of Styga, yet Achilles heel was left vulnerable as the left heel was where his mother held him.
Thetis, though earlier sought to immortalize her other six children with water, fire and ambrosia that this became an event that unfortunately led to their deaths. Though popularized over the millenniums for million to repeat the ancient tales of yore, the tale of Achilles’ immortality was written about by one sole writer, the 1st century Latin author, Statius.
Today, the underworld river called Styx is called the River Styga. It was named after Styga, the child of Erebus and Nyx, and as quoted by Apollodorus, he argues that Styga not Demetra was the mother of Persephone. So in the palace of King Nebuchadnezzar in the year of 332 BCE, the last request of Alexander the Great, before his fatal illness, was that he could have some of the waters of the River Styx (Styga) so he also could make a vow to the gods, like his hero, Hercules. The legacy of that myth was that Alexander could then plunge into the waters of the underground River Styga as he also sought to reach the underworld region of Hades.
Was this an interesting way of weaving the tapestry of these ancient Greek legends, that would later identify that Alexander the Great was also a Lost Israelite? As we identified earlier in this article, “Alexander the Great…was possibly an Argive Danite” that is from the Israelite Tribe of Dan. According to the Scottish antiquarian, E. Raymond Capt, in his book titled, “Jacob’s Pillar”, concerning the two sons of the Patriarch Judah; Zarah and Pharez, the latter who was the tribal ancestor of the Jews, we read:
E. Raymond Capt – “There is very little in the Scriptures that applies specifically to Zarah, the Prince of Judah. His immediate posterity is given as follows.”
I Chronicles 2:6 – “And the sons of Zarah: Zimri, and Ethan, and Herman, and Calcol, and Dara: five of them in all”
Two of his descendants are given as authors of certain of the Psalms. And Solomon is described as having wisdom greater “than Ethan, the Ezrahite and Herman, and Calcol, and Darda. (I Kings 4:31)
However, there is a bountiful supply of data in historical records, generally overlooked by Bible scholars, which shed light on the fulfillment of Jeremiah’s commission. It seems certain that the family of Zarah aspired to the scepter of Judah but failed to attain their ambitions. After a time, Zarah’s entire household seems to have migrated out of Palestine. Where the Scriptures allow the record of Zarah’s line to lapse (we believe purposely), we find secular history provides the necessary clues. When properly fitted together, these enable us to blend the whole into one continuous recital down to the present day.
An examination of some of the historical clues reveals that Darda, “the Egyptian”, (son of Zarah) was “Dardanus”, the Egyptian founder of Troy: “Hecataeus, therefore, tells us that the Egyptians, formerly, being troubled by calamities, in order that the divine wrath might be averted, expelled all the aliens gathered together in Egypt. Of these, some, under their leaders Danus and Cadmus, migrated to Greece.” (Fragmenta Historicorum by Muller; vol, pg 385) – copies from the works of Hecataeus of Abdera, a fourth century B.C. Greek historian).
The “calamities” referred to were obviously the plagues which G-d brought down on the Egyptians, and the “aliens” were the Israelites, some of whom migrated to Greece with Danus and Cadmus, while others, under the leadership of Moses, made their exodus to the Wilderness of Sinai.
Diodorus gives us another version of the same story: “Now the Egyptians say that also after these events a great number of colonies were spread from Egypt all over the inhabited world…They say also that those who set forth with Danaus, likewise from Egypt, settled what is practically the oldest city of Greece, Argos, and that the nations of the Colchi in Pontus and that of the Jews (remnant of Judah), which lies between Arabia and Syria, were founded as colonies by certain emigrants from their country; and this is the reason why it is a long-established institution among these peoples to circumcise their male children the custom having been brought from Egypt. Even the Athenians, they say, are from Sais in Egypt,’ (Diodorus of Sicily, by G.H. Oldfather, 1933, vol. 1, bks 1-11, 1-34 pg. 91.
The descendants of Darda ruled ancient Troy from some hundreds of years, until the city was destroyed in the famous “siege of Troy”. Aeneas, the last of the royal blood (Zarah-Judah), collected the remnants of his nation and traveled with them to Italy. There he married the daughter of Latinus, king of the Latins and subsequently founded the great Roman Empire.
Aeneas’s son (or grandson) Brutus, with a large party of the Trojans, migrated to Malta, and there was advised to re-establish his people in “the Great White Island” (an early name for Britain due to its chalk cliffs). This advice is recorded in an archaic Greek form on the Temple of Diana in Caer Troia (New Troy). An historic stone still stands in the town of Totnes, on the shores of Torbay, commemorating his coming (circa 1103 B.C.) Brutus then made contact with his kindred blood in Britain and built for himself a new capital city to which he gave the name “Caer Troia”, or New Troy. The Romans later called it “Londinium”, now known as London.”
Stranger than fiction, the story of the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel, were becoming so numerous that they did not even know their legitimate brothers of the House of Jacob. So, we have the Lost Israelite, Alexander the Great, the Argive (Argead) Danite from the House of Dan, was fighting his own tribal brothers above the Black Sea that included the Sakya (sons of Isaac), the Massagetai (house of Manasseh) and the Pasargadae (house of Gad) yet, they broke the spirit of the Macedonian warriors that they revolted in India and forced, Alexander the Great, one of the greatest generals in history to retreat.
Yet below the Black Sea, the Argive son of the Aegeans hundreds of years earlier, the descendants of Zarah, the son of Judah who were living near the Strait of Dardanelles, one of history’s most famous citadel wars, the Aegean ten-year siege against the Citadel of Troy gave history its most famous Israelite warrior, Alexander the Great. Is there any doubt that the G-d of Israel knew the future when He spoke through the pen of Jeremiah the Prophet:
Jeremiah 51:20-21 – “You are My battle-ax and weapons of war: for with you I will break the nation in pieces; with you I will destroy kingdoms; with you I will break in pieces the horse and its rider; with you I will break in pieces the chariot and its rider.”
And we doubt that the G-d of Israel is capable of controlling the affairs of the nations today, until the great day of redemption is upon us; called the “Era of the Messiah?”
The Lost Ten Tribed Israelites were the First Primitive Buddhists
The G-d of Israel proclaimed that there are only two groups of people who will be restored back into covenant with Him, the Jews of the House of Israel and the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel. Both families, the Jews and the Israelites were scattered across the face of the earth and would become HaShem emissaries incognito sent to elevate the 70 nations of the world, so that even Righteous Gentiles could become part of the covenant. Even the children of Ishmael still rooted in Islam, the children of the Lost Ten Tribes who today are now Buddhist, or the Lost Ten Tribes who today call themselves Christians will be assimilated into the Jewish culture. This will be because deep in their hearts they are known by the Divine to be “safe to save” and willing to live in peace with their brothers; all descendants of the Patriarchs Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Only the G-d of Israel knows who they are.
We are quickly being polarizing a world in which there will be only two choices; we are either for the Hebrew Israelites; both now part of the Jews of the house of Judah and the Lost Israelites of the House of Israel or we will be against them. This comes to one sobering conclusion, if you are a descendant of the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel, whether Muslim, Buddhist or Christian, and you still despise your brothers, the Jews, you may be left outside, not redeemed to participate in the coming “Era of the Messiah” even though you think you want to be a part of them.
So today, the G-d of Israel is whistling for you to come back home to the brotherhood of Klal Yisra’el (All Israel).
