The Jew(s), the Yahudi, and the Israelites
Updated Nov. 4, 2022
Definition - Jew – Modern - any individual who is a member of the Jewish People and is united to them by the religion called Judaism.
The Question of who is a Jew has arisen with particular urgency today, especially in the Modern State of Israel. This is because of intense pressure from the Movements of Reform and Conservative Jewry, who feel that they have been excluded or more precisely, that Conversions performed by their Rabbis have not been recognized by Israeli authorities. Another major factor is the immigration of hundreds of thousands of individuals from the former Soviet Union, many of whom claim that they are Jews and who were in fact persecuted in their home land because of that identification, but who may not, according to the Halachic definition, be a Jew.”
“According to a strict Halachic definition, the answer to the question of who is Jewish is clear. A Jew is someone who either … is a child of a Jewish mother or is a Convert to Judaism who, after a period of serious and verified study of the Principles of the Faith and the Laws of Judaism, has done the following: Accepted upon him or herself the Yolk of the Kingdom of Heaven and the Yolk of God's Commandments, Immersed himself or herself in a Ritual Pool of Water known as a Mikveh, symbolizing Rebirth, if a male, has undergone the Process of Brit Milah.”
Note: the forgoing quotes were taken from the “Jewish101” web-site. Translation….to be a Jew you need to be a member of the Jewish religion, i.e. to believe in… Judaism, and if a male be circumcised . . . . . but not much more.
Typical modern use of the word "Jew(s)"- A word that is incorrectly used in many English Bibles, as a simile to translate the Hebrew word Yahudi. The word Jew(s) has now also become a synonym to translate or replace the word “Israel or Israelites.” Both of these uses are false and deceptive word associations. The English word “Jew” has no association or relationship to the descendants of the original 12 Biblical tribes of Israel nor does the word Jews relate to the descendants of one of the 12 Biblical tribes named “Yahudah.” The word “Israel” however, is a Biblical word that correctly does refer to the collective 12 tribes that stem from the ancient Biblical Israelites. The Biblical word “Yahudi” does refer to a descendant of “one” the 12 tribes of Israel that was named after one of Jacob’s son called Yahudah.
The word "Jew" is an adopted word. It is not found in the Hebrew Bible or in the writings known as the Greek New Testament. The word Jew originated early in the 15th century because the letter "J" did not exist until introduced as a vowel difference by printers of early English Bible translations. A Note: The word list in this document along with their associate English definitions have been "transliterated" from words used in the Hebrew Bible and/or from the Aramaic, or the Greek writings of the New Testament as noted. In other words, the Hebrew, Aramaic, or Greek words have been placed into English letters using a transliterated form so when the word is pronounced in the English language, the resulting sound will closely approximate the sound of the original Hebrew, Aramaic or Greek words.
In some English Bibles, the word Jews (the plural form) is used to replace the Aramaic word “Yahudim” (plural) which would be the people, or a “Yahudi, Yahudy” (singular) a native or person dwelling on a portion of Palestinian land that was once known as the Kingdom of Yahud, or Yahudah. However, unlike the word Jew or Jews, the word Yahudim (plural) would also include the people of any diverse racial group who were living in the region of the Southern Kingdom of Yahud/Yahudah. Even the occupying Romans dwelling there during the First Century could be Yahudim. This is like using the word “American” to refer to any of the many diverse peoples that are living in the country called America.
Note: Note how the word “Jew” or “Jews” is often incorrectly translated or substituted for the correctly transliterated and like-sounding words from the Hebrew Bible as shown in “bold” type below.
Yahud, (Aramaic) = a word corresponding to the Ancient Southern Kingdom and land area or “Kingdom of Yahud." This land area was named after Yahudah, one of the 12 sons of Ya'aqob (Jacob) Israel, “Yahud” also a singular form of the name Yahudah - is incorrectly translated as Jew, Judea, or Judah in many English Bibles.
Yahudain, Yahudean, Yahudym, or Yahudim, (Aramaic) all are like-sounding words in English, = a plural word defining the inhabitants (of anyone) living in the Ancient Southern Kingdom of Yahud - (incorrectly translated as Jews, or Judeans, in many English Bibles).
Yahudah, (Hebrew) = means Yah be praised in Hebrew, the compound name of the fourth son of Ya'aqob/Israel – also a word corresponding to the Ancient Southern Kingdom and land area or “Kingdom of Yahudah.” (Incorrectly translated as Judah, Jew or Jews in many English Bibles).
Yahudi or Yahudy, (Hebrew) like-sounding words, = the singular (or according to usage the plural) form of Yahudah, the descendant(s) of, or pertaining to Yahudah - (incorrectly translated as Jew, Jews, Jewish, or Judeans in many English Bibles).
Iouda, or Ioudas, (Greek) = Transliteration of the Hebrew word Yahudah, or his descendants, from Hebrew into Greek, into English, living in the Ancient Southern Kingdom of Yahudah - (incorrectly translated as Judah, Judas, Jude, Jew or Jews in many English Bibles).
Ioudaios or Iudaios, (Greek) from Iouda = Transliterates the Hebrew word Yahudim or Yahudah. Context of this Greek word determines form and meaning - (also incorrectly translated as Jew, Jews, Jewish, Judea in many English Bibles).
Ioudaismos, (Greek) = Transliterates the Hebrew word into Greek specifically as a reference to the religious system of the Yahudi - (incorrectly translated as Judaism, or Jewism in many English Bibles).
Juda, (English) = a word that comes from the Greek transliterated word Iudaios; (Iudaios is the name of a Greek pagan deity).
What happened to the actual Israelites that captured the original “Promised Land?”
The Hebrew name “Israel” means to strive, to overcome, and to rule with Al (or El). Al is a short form of the word Alueim (or Elohim) and has the Hebrew meaning of Mighty-One(s). The name Isra-el was given to Jacob as his name when he strove and overcame with Al, (Gen. 32:28). Israel became the name of the Unified Nation that originated from Jacob’s 12 sons under Moses. However, after the division of the Kingdom of Israel in about 975 BC, the name Israel came to refer only to the Northern Kingdom of Israel while the Southern Kingdom was known as the Kingdom of Yahudah, (after the name of the dominant tribe). The term Israel in the Bible, in context, can refer to the 12 tribes as a collective whole, or to the Northern Kingdom of Israel (the 10 ½ tribes).
Summary History of Israel and Yahudah
The 12 tribes of Israel descended from the patriarch Jacob, who was renamed Israel by Yahweh. The tribes of Jacob/Israel became a united “Monotheistic National Identity” under the leadership of Moses and Joshua, with a Covenant and set of civil laws, rules, regulations and ordinances that would govern both their religious and civil obligations before their Almighty Sovereign Creator Power named Yahweh. Note: It is believed that the Pentateuch (first 5 books of the Bible) was written by Moses in the early pictographic Hebrew language. But as time went on, things did not go very well for the Israelites. The Bible says “In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes” (Judges 21:25).
From the death of Joshua and his generation of Israelites in time, a new generation arose “They abandoned Yahweh, the Mighty-One of their fathers, who brought them out of the land of Mitsrayim, and followed other gods, of the gods of the peoples who were around them, and bowed themselves down to them; and they provoked Yahweh to anger. . . . . And even during the time when judges (Judges 2:4-7) were appointed to rule Israel, and when these attempted to keep Israel on a righteous path, it was to no avail. Eventually Israel became disobedient and because if it, the people of Israel endured tumultuous times of war and captivity from their neighbors, they even had periods of redemption by Yahweh under righteous judges. But eventually Yahweh had enough, He decided to prove Israel, and to teach them that war was not a good enterprise, and sin was not acceptable to Him. He allowed the same nations that Joshua drove out of the land to “prove” the new generation. The age of war, capture, and repentance, was the “order of the times” for the judges of Israel.
Eventually the people desired to have a King rule them just like the pagan nations around them. In time Yahweh allowed this, and Saul became king ruling over all the 12 tribes. After Saul, Yahweh chose David, a member of the tribe of Yahudah, to be king following Saul.
The division between Israel and Yahudah
After the tribe of Yahudah made David their king, the Northern tribes of Israel decided to follow Saul’s son Ishbosheth instead. This led to war between the tribe of Yahudah and the rest of Israel. “Now there was a long war between the house of Saul [Israel] and the house of David [Yahudah]. But David grew stronger and stronger, and the house of Saul grew weaker and weaker” (2 Samuel 3:1). King David however worked to unite all 12 tribes of Israel, and after seven years and six months he was welcomed as king over “all Israel and Yahudah” (2 Samuel 5:5).
After David, his son Solomon reigned over Israel and Yahudah. Although Solomon began with good intentions, he eventually also disobeyed Yahweh and by doing so he started the beginning for the future division of his own Kingdom.
“Thus says the Yahweh, Might-One of Israel: ‘Behold, I will tear the Kingdom out of the hand of Solomon and will give ten tribes to you (but he shall have one tribe for the sake of My servant David, and for the sake of Jerusalem, the city which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, because they have forsaken Me, and worshiped Ashtoreth the goddess of the Sidonians, Chemosh the god of the Moabites, and Milcom the god of the people of Ammon, and have not walked in My ways to do what is right in My eyes and keep My statutes and My judgments, as did his father David” (1 Kings 11:31-33). Yahweh chose one of Solomon’s servants (Jeroboam) to lead Israel after Solomon.
Solomon died around 930 BC., and soon thereafter the Northern 10 ½ tribes sent a delegation to Rehoboam his son, to ask for relief from the heavy burden of taxes they had been carrying.
But Rehoboam took bad advice and threatened to raise their taxes instead. This led to the split that Yahweh had predicted. So why did Israel and Yahudah split? The argument was over taxation, but Yahweh’s prophecy makes clear the real problem was sin.
The kings Jeroboam and Rehoboam
After the split, Rehoboam became king of the Southern Kingdom of Yahudah. The Kingdom of Yahudah was comprised of the tribes of Yahudah and Benjamin and about 1/2 of the tribe of Levi, (the tribe that served the temple).
Jeroboam, the former servant of King Solomon, became king of the Northern Kingdom of Israel as God had promised. The Kingdom of Israel was comprised of the remaining 10-1/2 tribes, (1 Kings 11 and 12).
Even though all the tribes were descendants of Jacob, also called Israel, (Genesis 32:28; 35:10) and were known as Israelites under the single nation with this name, these peoples were now separated into two Kingdoms, and had become of very mixed character through intermarrying with the neighboring people, (Judges 3:5-7). For many years wars and rivalries existed between Israel and Yahudah, (2 Kings 16:5-6).
What happened to ancient Biblical Israel and Yahudah?
Eventually, because of disobedience, Yahweh allowed the Northern Kingdom of Israel to be taken into captivity by the Assyrians, 722-21 in the eighth century BC. The Assyrians took these Israelites captive in successive deportations and re-settled them in the cities of the Medes, (2 Kings 15:29; 18:9-12). Since that time, the Israelite people are known in history as the lost tribes of Israel. The Yahudi historian Josephus said, “The entire body of the people of Israel remained in that country of the Medes; wherefore there are but two tribes [Judah and Benjamin] in Asia and Europe subject to the Romans, while the ten tribes are beyond Euphrates till now, and are an immense multitude, and not to be estimated by numbers” (Antiquities of the Jews, 11.5.2, Complete Works of Flavius Josephus, combined translations of William Whiston, 1867, and the Standard Edition, 1960).
During the time the people of the Northern Kingdom were removed from their original “holy” lands, and dwelling in the land area South of the Caucasian Mountains, they grew to such a large population that they eventually migrated toward the far West and then Northwest, (blocked by the Caucasus Mountains to their North). By their migration from the south of the Caucasus they became known through their travels as Caucasians. These Caucasian people ultimately formed the nations of Western-Northern Europe stretching even to the Northern outposts of Britain. They were then and are now still known as the “lost” tribes of Israel. Because they lost their religious leaders over many years, the people of the lost tribes of Israel developed into pagan. This changed however, when the Roman Empire gained control of most of Western Europe and Britain. In about 313 AD, Constantine, the then Roman Emperor forced the people in his Empire (under the threat of death) to accept his Constantine Roman Christian religion. In the fifth Century AD, Rome was defeated by waves of Germanic invaders.
Less than 150 years after the Northern Tribes were taken captive (during the sixth century BC), Yahweh allowed the people of the Southern Tribes (which had also continued to sin) to fall to the Babylonian Empire, and many Yahudim were taken as captives to Babylon. After 70 years, they were given their freedom and allowed to return and rebuild the city of Jerusalem and the temple. Less than 48 thousand ever returned. Although there had been significant miscegenation among the people of the Southern Tribes and among the people of the Northern Tribes with other people groups over their years, under the Judges, and during their respective captivities, some distinct Israelite groups may have remained in the land when the Romans conquered Yahudah in 63 BC. This would have occurred prior to the movement of religious Jews (a non-Israelite group) from Eastern Europe in 1944 under the League of Nations mandate dividing Palestine between religious Jews and the Palestinian people. It is very possible some of the people now known as Palestinians are remnants of the ancient Israelites that remained on the ancient land, that the imposter Jews are now stealing from them causing today’s continuous wars between them.
The Two Modern divisions of Jewish Groups:
Modern Jews divide themselves into two primary groups. One group refers to themselves as "Ashkenazi Jews" and the other group as "Sephardim Jews" (or Sephardic Jews). There is a great deal of difference between these groups. The two groups are not one united people, but are divided socially, politically, and religiously.
1. Jew – Ashkenazi (m) – this designation refers to most of today’s American, Franco-German, East German, Polish, most Russian, and some Central European Jews. Ashkenazi Jews are now found all over the globe, about half of which are living in the Jewish State called Israel and about half in the USA, and around the globe. “Zionist Jews” would also place themselves into the Ashkenazi Jew category.
Approximately 90 percent of the 14 million or so Jews living on the globe today call themselves Ashkenazi Jews. The word Ashkenaz, Ashkenazi, or Ashkenazim (plural) is not a generic Hebrew word for Germany, and it is not a place in Germany. Many modern day Jews (even in ignorance) have identified themselves with, or are often synonymous with the “Ashkenazi label.” However, the truth is that most of the self-called Ashkenazi Jews have no racial or blood-line identity with the lineage of a Biblical Semite (which is what Jews would like a non-Jew to believe). A true racial Ashkenazi would in fact be a descendant of Japheth, one of the three sons of Noah. Such a person should likely be called a "Japhethite Jew" but not an “Ashkenazi Jew” (that is, if that person had in fact adopted Judaism as his/her religion). The Hebrew Bible states in Gen. 10:3 and in I Chron. 1: 6 that Ashkenaz was one of the sons of Gomer and that Gomer was a son of Japheth, who was a son of Noah. Ashkenaz was also a brother of Togarmah and a nephew of Magog who the Khazars an eighth Century Turkish tribe, (according to King Joseph a King of the Khazars claimed as being their ancestor).
The term Anti-Semitism - and the Ashkenazi Jew(s)
The term Anti-Semite is a phrase coined by Jews as a "catch-all" term invented by them to be used as a racial term to benefit Jews (anti-discrimination laws). Jews want “Anti-Semitism” used as a racist term so they can claim it as a racial slur when applied against Jews. The problem, however is, that Jews are NOT a Race. They are a self-segregated people group due to their religion of Judaism. This is no different as Christians by Christianity, or Muslims by Islam. 95% of all modern Jews are not descendants from Noah's son Shem, so the term is miss-applied and cannot be a “Race related” term because Noah had 3 sons. Therefore, if used as a racial term, it can only refer to someone descending from Noah’s son Shem (if that is even provable). It can, however, refer to those of Abraham’s descent, which could include many European “Caucasian” people because most are very likely of Semitic-Israelite descent even if they do not know it. Semites (descendents of Noah’s son Shem) could also include many Arabs and many Western European Caucasians who descend from Noah’s son Shem through Biblical Abraham. All three sons of Noah (and Noah himself) have the same blood line as Shem, so that line would also include descendants of brothers Ham and Japheth.
Some have said the Ashkenazi Jew came from a Khazar/Turkish tribal people and are probably proselytes of Mid-eastern Europeans having rejected Islam by their adopting Judaism beginning about 750 AD. However, their religion would still not make them descendants from either Noah’s son Shem or of Japheth, but converts to an “Ashkenazi-Talmudic” system of Judaism. The coined phrase “anti-Semitism” cannot be a derogative statement used against the Ashkenazi Jew who is not from Shem. It could however be used against Arabs and several other people groups that (according to the Bible) do descend from Noah’s son Shem.
2. Jew, Sephardim – originally these were called Spanish Jews, but now also scattered over the globe. After the Northern Kingdom of Israel was conquered by the Assyrian King Shalmaneser V, in 745-722 BC, for their sinning against Yahweh, the ancient Israelites from the Northern Kingdom were exiled into ancient Assyria, (2 Kings 17:5-7). The Assyrian King imported people groups from his country Assyria to replace the exiled Israelites in order for him to maintain and control the land captured from the exiled Israelites. The Sepharvaim of Assyria is one of these people groups, along with some Cuthahites, and Arrahites, (2 Kings 17:24). These people inter mingled with each other along with Edomite people who had migrated Northward from Idumea (field of Edom) into the area of the original Northern Kingdom of Israel after the Israelites were exiled. The Sephardim Yahudim (now called Sephardim Jews) are the mongrel people whose descent comes from a mixture of these Assyrian people probably also mixed with some of the escaped Israelites, they are also strongly mixed with Edomite blood. The original land area also became of mixed character from this diversity of these people, (2 Kings 17:24-41). During the time of the Messiah Yahshua (aka Jesus), the Sephardim/Canaan people were looked down upon, considered a lower “grade” of Yahudim (person living in Yahudah) and were collectively known as the Samaritans, (Matt. 10:5).
The Sephardim Jews were also mixed with the Assyrian people who descended from the Canaanites (the people who colonized Carthage). Following the sack by Rome, they adopted the Sepharvaim or Sephardim name, invented their own form of Judaism and constitute about 5 percent of the people that call themselves Jews. The Sephardim Jews speak Latino, a mixture of Spanish and Hebrew. The Sephardim Jews migrated into Spain from the ancient land area of Yahud and Samaria before, during, and after the destruction of the City of Jerusalem by the Romans in 70 AD.
Today devout Sephardim Jews still associate themselves by using their ancient Sephardim name. Although Sephardim Jews originally settled in Spain, Portugal, the Eastern Mediterranean, Italy, the Balkans, Salonica and Macedonia, they eventually emigrated into France, England, and into Western Europe. Unlike the Ashkenazi Jews who have no historical roots, a national claim, or a blood-line tie whatsoever to any part of Palestine or to what was the Southern Kingdom of Yahud, a true descendant of the Sepharviam Jews (Yahudim) would have originated from Northern Palestine. Most were living in Samaria which was in the land area from which the Northern Kingdom of Israel was exiled 721 BC under the conquest of King Shalmaneser V, of the ancient Kingdom of Assyria
Because the Sephardim/Sepharviam Jews are not of pure Israelite blood they are not direct descendents from the tribe of Yahudah or of the 12 tribes of Israel. They were called Yahudim as inhabitants or persons living in the land area of Palestine originally occupied by the ancient Northern Kingdom of Israel. The Sephardim Jews like the Ashkenazi Jews are not a Semitic people. The word Sephardim is not a Biblical Hebrew word for Spain, but the name has become associated with Spain, because many Sephardim people organized as a distinctive religious group while in Spain. The remaining Jews (about 5 percent) who call themselves Jews, have an unknown history, most are likely proselytes to the religion of Judaism.
Yiddish, the language invented and used by many religious Jews
Modern Jews that practice Judaism speak Yiddish, which is an amalgamated language that originated in the German Rhineland about the end of the tenth century (about the same time as the beginning of the Jewish religion of Judaism). Most of the “Hebrew” spoken in the Modern Jewish State called Israel is actually Yiddish; Yiddish is not Paleo (ancient) Biblical Hebrew. Yiddish as spoken by many of today’s Jews was influenced by the addition of French, Latin, Slavonic, Romance and (increasingly) the English language, but in essence it is mostly German colored by some Hebrew words and written with Modern Hebrew (Aramaic) square characters (read and written from right to left). In other words, Yiddish is a German sub-language that was formed from the host languages of the many countries where Jews have lived (and have been expelled from) over the years. Yiddish likely developed because Jews often lived (or were required to live) segregated lives (in Ghettos) apart from the people of their host Countries.
Judaism - the Modern Religion of most Jews
Present day Modern Judaism was formally developed into its basic cultic (ritualistic) structure about 1,000 years ago, (according to Jewish history) when a man by the name of Rabbenu Gershon a Khazar of Mainz Germany, published a ban on bigamy for religious Jews. Rabbenu Gershon is also thought to be the origin of the title “Rabbi” that has been adopted by many Jewish leaders that follow his teachings of Judaism.
Gershon was also thought to be deeply involved in Jewish history and the recorded beginnings of the organized Jewish Ashkenazi sect and with Franco-German halachic creativity (loose interpretations) of the Hebrew Bible. Gershon thereby established the beginning of what is now the modern (ritualistic) religion of Judaism, it is developed by ignoring many of the original Biblical precepts found in the Hebrew Bible, but in their stead, replacing them with man-made traditions, customs, and ideology.
Modern Judaism is greatly influenced by the Babylonian Talmud, an ancient pagan ritualistic system of various extreme (and misdirected) opinions, interpretations, codes, rules, and numerous fabricated non-Biblical regulations, along with the Kabala which is basically a collection of mysticism formulated from a mixture of many previous primitive pagan customs and cultures that date back thousands of years. Judaism as a religion today has significantly perverted the Hebrew Bible and is not at all similar to the precepts outlined for ancient true Israelites as found in the Hebrew Bible. In Judaism, the writings in the Talmud and the Kabala supersede the writings of the Hebrew Bible. In other words, for the Jew, the opinions of their Sages, the written Talmud, and the opinions found in the Kabala are more important and authoritative then what is written in the Hebrew Bible. In Judaism, customs and culture have become superior to the Bible. The Country formed in 1948 by Jews, known as Israel today or the “Israeli” people who are calling themselves the “Jewish State” have little in common with the ancient Israelites of the Hebrew Bible except for the territory that the Modern State called Israel is occupying. Israel as a Biblical identifiable people group remains dispersed among all the nations of the globe and is still “lost.”
When the modern nation of Israel was founded in 1948, it was established as a haven for Jews. It is the only nation in the world today that is predominantly formed by migration from people not related to the ancient tribes of Israel, still supported in ignorance by many Christians who do not know their Bible. Many Jews have moved there, but over half of the Jewish people still live in other countries around the world. Some have mistakenly assumed that because its Jewish founders chose the name Israel, this nation is now home for all of the descendants of ancient Israel. We must realize that the Bible speaks of Abraham’s descendants as being an extremely large number of people—“as the sand of the sea” (Gen. 32:12). With the modern nation of Israel’s population approaching 9 million, compared to the earth’s current population of approximately 7.7 billion, the belief that the modern nation of Israel represents all of Abraham’s descendants doesn’t adequately respect nor do justice to the promise God made to this patriarch. Furthermore, Abraham’s descendant Ephraim was prophesied to “become a multitude of nations” and his brother, Manasseh, a “great” nation, (Gen. 48:19). The modern nation of Israel has not and cannot fulfill these biblical prophecies.
After the exile of the Northern Tribes of Israel north into Assyria and during the Diaspora of 721 BC, and after the migration of Israel north into Europe from Assyria, the Bible refers to these Israelites as the “lost tribes.” The dispersed Israel has become such a huge population that it cannot be numbered, and will never again physically fit in the ancient "promised Land." This is all a fulfillment of Yahweh’s promise to Abraham, (Gen. 14:1-3).
The Palestinians people still living in the area and controlled by the Jews are a mixture of Arab; some from the original Palestinian people; some descending from the ancient Philistines, and some are quite likely descendants of the residual of the actual Hebrew tribes of the ancient Biblical Israelites. In a unique historical twist the name "Palestine" has become the familiar name for all the land that was at one time known as the "Holy Land." The word Palestine is a derivative from the word Philistia that formed from the word Philistine(s); these were in fact, the original inhabitants of the land area, even before the conquest by the ancient Israelites of the Hebrew Bible.
What on earth is a Judeo - Christian?
Present day true Israelites are an independent historical Adamic people group. Many of these “lost” Israelites are currently of the Christian belief, and may be comprised of all the true 12 tribes of Ancient Biblical Israel. The descendants of these Israelites are now completely scattered throughout the globe, and will always be living among the nations of the globe. The Jutes, Danes, Saxons, Angles, Vikings, Celts, and Norman's are the people that originally comprised ancient Israel of the Assyrian and the Roman Diaspora. We believe the Central and Western Free European Nations were established and formed from these Adamic Caucasian Israelite people descending from the original tribes of the 745-721 BC Diaspora.
The term "Judeo - Christian" is a complete misnomer. It is a very misleading term that should only be loosely associated with the common belief in “One Almighty Sovereign Creator Being” called monotheism (the belief in one God). However, even when using this understanding, Judaism and Christianity have nothing in common. Christians believe that their one God is composed of three persons existing in the “one being” the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The Trinitarian belief is not really monotheism, although Christians like to believe that their trinity is still somehow monotheistic. Judaism does not believe that God is a Trinity, so it cannot be Judeo-Christian. The belief in one Supreme Creator Being “true monotheism” is shared by other religions including Israelism, and Islam. Judaism remains strongly anti-Christian due in part to the Christian belief in a Trinity. The addition by Christians of the Greek New Testament writings believed to be the inspired word of God, and the belief that the prophet Jesus was God incarnate, also falls the claim of “Judeo-Christian”. Judaism adds the writings of the Talmud and the Kabala as foundational documents of their belief. However, additions to the Hebrew Bible are forbidden for those that use only the Hebrew Bible as their foundational Documents, (Deut. 4:2).
Jews are wise not to promote their anti-Christian belief because the Jewish State receives approximately three hundred million dollars of US aid annually and is in debt to America by over 100 billion dollars. It is very likely that some of this money has been used to develop their arrogant Socialistic Apartheid State. Also, by using US government aid Jews have been able build a huge Middle Eastern war machine, and have a stock-pile of weapons of mass destruction (nuclear). Since 1947 AD, Jews have stolen land from the aboriginal Palestinian-Arab/Israelite people; and, they have destroyed their olive groves; their economy and their homes, and they have influenced gullible ignorant Americans as well as the US Congress to support all of this deliberate destruction. All of this comes under the false claim of “the need for Jewish security.” Yet, Jews in the Jewish State are by their continued actions inviting terrorism on themselves from the many desperate people living in Jewish occupied territory. Those living in occupied territory are prisoners without hope toward regaining their ancestral homelands and have nothing to lose by their resistance. The Jewish State has violated every UN mandate for a Jewish/Palestinian homeland since 1948 AD. To this day Jews continue to oppress and destroy their Palestinian-Arab/Israelite neighbors.
The one-sided support by the US Government for the Jewish State has developed and promoted hatred against the United States Government by oppressed people throughout the Middle-East and the globe. The America that was at one time in history the most envied and generous nation of the globe has become by some the most hated of bully nation-builders.
What does all this say about the Christian leaders of America’s Churches or about the Jewish paid-for-and- controlled members of the US Congress? Until the Jewish State begins to abide by the many UN mandates that it has ignored; withdraws from stolen Palestinian lands; agrees to a sovereign Palestinian State equal in land area to a Jewish State; begins to show consideration, compassion, and kindness to their neighbors (a clear Biblical mandate found in the 10 Commandments), and until America begins to treat the oppressed Palestinian-Arab/Israelite people on an equal footing with the Jews in their rouge State called Israel, America will certainly continue to be a target by those who view it as a primary source for oppression and misery.
The high poverty level in Palestine today contributes to the great sense of despair for the Palestinian people that has since the mid-1980’s hastened the rise of global extremist groups. The Jews are simply reaping what they have sown on their neighbors for over 70 years by actions that have been completely void of even the most basic of righteous Biblical principles, all supported by America and America’s ignorant Christians. Jews have proven themselves not to be friends of the American people.
According to Jewish sources (from the Jewish Central Bureau of Statistics), the total world population of Jews today is about 14 Million. However, the people of Ancient Israel, those from the original Biblical Israelite Diasporas, now number in the hundreds of millions and they are now an innumerable population all a fulfillment of the promise to Abraham, (Gen. 14:1-3). This historical fact is recorded by the Yahudi Historian Josephus in his "Antiquities of the Yahudim" Book XI, Chap. V, 2. Where he states the following: "wherefore there are but two tribes in Asia and Europe subject to the Romans, while the ten tribes are beyond Euphrates till now, and are an immense multitude, and not to be estimated by numbers." This is hardly a statement which can be said of today's fourteen million Jews well over 2,000 years after Josephus wrote this in his record book! If the descendants of Biblical Israel's immense multitude could not be estimated by numbers over 2,000 years ago by Josephus, one can only imagine just how vast the population of Biblical Israel is throughout the globe today.
A final Note: The information in this document is provided to promote truth and to counter the false and deceptive Jewish global propaganda effort to obtain domination and Global control. As has been shown, the truth shows that Jews are basically impostors to the Biblical Israelites and are simply a religious group. Jews use gullible “Christians” and Western Governments of countries like Great Britain, Western Europe and the United States and Canada to do their dirty work using their Military, their Arms, and their wealth in their attempt to achieve this global domination and control. Jews have been at this domination attempt since before WWI and have infiltrated the entire political arms of many Governments by rewarding corrupt and ignorant politicians amiable toward their global cause. They have done this by using generous donations for the re-election of pro-Jew politicians orchestrated by Jewish financed committees like AIPAC - The American Israel Public Affairs Committee, and AJC - the American Jewish Committee. Jews now own and control major News media’s and run the world’s largest Banks. Because of their arrogant attitude, and because the Jewish State has become maligned far from what are known to be basic moral Biblical principles, the word “Jew(s)” has become a word reflecting an undesirable people group or person. The US Government contributes to this by giving this corrupt, apartheid, anti-Christian and soon to be isolated and walled-in State billions of dollars borrowed from creditors like communist China, all borrowed money that America’s youth are going to be burdened for many years to pay back.
About the Karaite “Jews” and “Karaite Judaism”
There are a number of “Jews” who call themselves Karaites. They believe that they preserve the original religion Israelism of the Hebrew Bible, and reject later innovations such as the Rabbinic Oral Law, and the Talmudim. They also believe that every individual is required to take responsibility for interpreting the Tanach (the Hebrew Bible). They are a religious group, who may or may not be blood Israelites, but they are Israelites by keeping Yahweh’s Covenant, rejecting the traditions and additions of men. They are not in the category of the Ashkenazi or Sephardim Jews. They call themselves Jews, but are actually (in our opinion) “True Israelites” because they keep Yahweh’s Covenant, and follow the principles in the Hebrew Bible. The Karaite Jews are in a “Jewish” category all by themselves, because they also keep the ordinances, and many customs we believe not to be necessary anymore.
Karaite Judaism or Karaism practice what they believe to be the faith of the Hebrew Bible. The word "Karaism" comes from the Hebrew Karaim meaning "Followers of the Bible." The Karaites also believe that the Hebrew Bible contains the master plan of the Creator of all as revealed to the Ancient Nation of Israel through Moses and the Prophets in order to serve as a "Light unto the Nations." From its very inception “True” Israel's role has been to teach mankind of the divine will, which endows those who live by it eternal life, as it is written: "it is a tree of life to those who keep it." (Proverbs 3:18).
What then is a “True” Biblical Israelite?
A “True Israelite” is one that keeps Yahweh’s Covenant/Contract, the 10 Commandments, (see Deut. 5:2-22). This belief is also called Israelism or Yahwism and to some degree Karaim. If a “stranger” (an Israelite of an unknown tribe) keeps the “Covenant/Contract” they become a True Israelite and a member of Yahweh’s house-hold by doing so. The Hebrew Bible teaches that becoming a True Israelite holding the key to life has everything to do with living righteously; becoming faithful to the principles found in the Hebrew Bible, from the Almighty Sovereign named Yahweh to the prophets, (see also Matt. 19:16-17). It would also stand that the act has nothing at all to do with tribal identity, a known blood line, or living on a particular piece of land, (Isaiah 56: 6-7). The two large religions, Christianity and Islam, recognize some of the truth in the Hebrew Bible, but they compromise the purity of the divine message by adding their own Books to Yahweh’s complete and revealing Word. The Christians add the Greek New Testament as foundational, the Muslim add the Qur’an. The form of Judaism commonly practiced today is not “True” Israelism, but Talmudism. Talmudists corrupt the true message of the Hebrew Bible by adding the teachings of the Rabbis found in the "Talmud." The fact, there is not a single reference to the Talmud in the entire Hebrew Bible. The authentic Israelism (Yahwistic) religion is based upon that which is taught by the Creator Himself through the prophets of the Hebrew Scriptures without addition or subtraction, since it is written: "You shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall you diminish anything from it, that you may keep the commandments of Yahweh your Might-One" (Deuteronomy 4:2).
In this current era of the Dispersed Israel, prophecy has ceased while the Almighty "hides His face" for the sins of Israel. With no living prophets, the only path to knowledge of the divine is through the Hebrew Bible which “contains the complete and perfect instruction” of the divine will revealed through the ancient prophets of Israel. By living in accordance with the divine instruction, men can be redeemed from sin, as it is written: "When the evildoer turns away from all his sins that he has done and shall keep all My statutes and do justice and righteousness, he shall surely live, he shall not die. All his iniquities that he has done shall no longer be remembered" (Ezekiel 18:21-22). Yahweh bestowed us with His perfect instruction out of his immense love and mercy for mankind, as it is written: "Do I indeed desire the death of the evildoer, says Yahweh, do I not desire for him to return from his ways so that he may live?" (Ezekiel 18:23).
The Jews living in the State called Israel have demonstrated the exact opposite by their ongoing actions of terror, theft and oppression against the Palestinian people (their neighbors), some are very likely to be the rightful native owners of the Lands called Palestine, and who actually may also be blood descendents of the ancient Israelites, even if they lack knowledge of that probability.
Most Jews, however, have never been descendants of the Biblical Israelites and did not come to Palestine until the early 1900’s. This makes them illegal immigrants to the land and foreigners that are simply stealing Palestinian land by masquerading as the descendants of the ancient Biblical tribes of the “Covenant/Contracted” True Israel.

 Yahweh, Yah - the Sovereign name of the Almighty Creator of all: (Hebrew) = YHWH, YH, Yahweh, Yah (short form) the transliterated compound name which means “He-is, or He Exists in Hebrew.” The name YHWH is the personal proper name of the Almighty Sovereign Power being (the true Creator) as revealed in the Hebrew Bible, NOT the word God, (Exodus 3:14-15). It is “YHWH” (written in English characters) or “Yahweh” as a transliterated name when read in English Sovereign name Bibles.
 The original land (Kingdom) of Israel was divided into two Kingdoms about 975 BC, composed of the Northern Kingdom called Israel, and the Southern Kingdom called Yahud.
 We say 10-1/2 tribes, because early in the division of the Kingdoms, a portion of the tribe of Levi remained with the Northern Kingdom. Later those of Levi joined with the other members of the tribe in the Southern Kingdom.
