If the word for the island of Britain came from “Baratanac” (Land of Tin), because of the tin mines of Cornwall, why were there so many other places called Brit … Bretti, Berytus, Bruttium, Britonia, Brittany, Bretagne, Brittia, Britanni etc.?
According to Brit-Am then, the descendants of Joseph’s birthright is found in “Isaac shall thy seed be called”.
“What?”, you say.
At the battle of Carchemish, the ten tribes escape through the “Gate of Israel” (Dariel Pass) to the Caucasus, and a race is ‘born’. The House of Isaaca (Sacae, or Sakai, in pre-vowel form) were taken captive to the River Gozan and to the cities of the Medes.
[The Medes are referred to as the Khumri (Ghimri) on the Black Obelisk of Shalmaneser and in the Babylonian text of Behistun Rock. The Scythians were known to the Persians as Sacae and to ancient writers as Aramii (Aramean), which was Israel’s ancestry].
Through Albinus, Strabo, Ptolemy, et al, we follow the Sacae in Asia as the progenitors to the Saxons (read: “sons of Sakai”), a righteous race according to Strabo, who possessed the Crimea before moving gradually westward into Scandinavia, Germany, and France, before being imported to assist the Britons against the Picts and Scots.
[Ed: Perhaps the term “Briton” was a retroactive application?]
Berith (brith) is Hebrew for covenant, ish for man, ain for land, and annia for ships, so that:
- Brit-ish = “Covenant Man”
- Brit-ain = “Land of the Covenant”
- Brit-annia = “Ships of the Covenant”
This so-called British-Israelism is quick to be refuted by others.
Meanwhile, in the History of the Baptists by J. Davis (Pittsburgh, 1835: pp. 1), we read:
The Welsh, properly called Cumry, the inhabitants of the Principality of Wales, are generally believed to be the descendants of Gomer, the eldest son of Japheth, who was the eldest son of Noah. The general opinion is that they landed on the Isle of Britain from France, about three hundred years after the flood.
About eleven hundred years before the Christian era, Brutus and his men emigrated from Troy in Asia, and were cordially received by the Welsh. They soon became one people and spake the same language, which was the Gomeraeg, or Welsh; hence the Welsh people are sometimes called the Ancient Britons.
About four hundred years before Messiah, other emigrants came from Spain, and were permitted by Gwrgan, the Welsh king, to settle in Ireland, among the Ancient Britons, who were in that country already. They, also, soon became one people, but have not retained either the Welsh or the Spanish language; for the Irish language, to this day, is a mixture of both.
