Israelis or Jews?

    by Reb Gutman Locks   

 

Two angry viewers wrote;

     "Get out of Isreal. How dare you say that the most high gave that land to the jews. He gave it to Isreal not to you Jews. You are surely not from the line of Ham. Blacks are the true Isreal."

(I censored out the many lines of violent hate speech)

 

Gutman's reply: (Not that I think anything I could write would ever change their hatred… this reply is for others to see how wrong these people are.)

     Why invent things to fit your desires? The facts have been written for thousands of years. Accept the facts and move on.

     Avraham, his wife Sarah, and their son Isaac were called Hebrews from the word Ivrit.[i] As for Avraham's other children; Ishmael was the son of Hagar. Hagar was an Egyptian maidservant of Sarah, so Ishmael was also an Egyptian servant of Sarah. Avraham's other children whom he fathered with Keturah, the wife he took after Sarah passed away, were sent away from Isaac to the land of the East[ii] so they would not come to claim the land that Hashem promised to Avraham and Isaac and their descendants forever.

     Isaac had two sons; Yaacov and Esau. Hashem gave the hill country of Mt. Seir, Edom to Esau[iii] and to Yaacov He gave the Land of Canaan which is the Land of Israel.[iv]

     Yaacov had 12 sons and each son became the leader of one of the 12 tribes of Israel. Many years later when the children of Israel were exiled from our Land and many of the tribes were lost, all of the children of Israel became known by the name of the tribe of Yehuda. This is where the name Jew comes from. The first recorded record of an Israeli being called a Jew is found in the Bible in the book of Esther; Mordecai the Yehudi.[v] This book was written in about the year 450 BCE. So this is a record of Israelis being called Jews from at least 2,500 years ago. The promise to give this Land to Avraham was given some 3,600 years ago and the Torah records this promise some 3,300 years ago.

     This is clear proof that Israelis and Jews are two names of the same people. As for the attempt to discredit today's Ashkenazi Jews see this short video.

Are AshkenaziJews Really Jews?

     As I said above, there is nothing that will change the minds of people who come from a place of hatred. They will always invent another false charge trying to gain support for their hatred. The facts are clear. Today's Jews are the descendants of Avraham, Isaac, and Yaacov, and it is to us that Hashem has promised and has given this wonderful Land.

     Soon, the Redemption will come and all of these people who have been filled with hatred of Jews will deny that they ever hated us, and will try to gain the reward of those righteous people who have always supported Israel.

I actually wrote an email today to a non-jewish friend about a similar topic to this.
He was asking me about how the popular American rapper Kendrick Lamar claims to be an "Israelite"
This is the email I wrote:

There are loads of competing types of "Black Hebrew Israelite".
Some are Christian.
Some claim to be Jewish.
Some in Israel too, who are the vegan ones.
Some others dress like Melle Mel and stand outside Maceys in New York shouting their doctrine.
There are lots of youtube clups, including one where they meet Ethiopian Jews and tell them "You are not Jewish, we are the real Jews"
It's bizarre.
It is called "Replacement Theology."

The only way those Hebrew Israelites are Jewish is if they are of Igbo descent, as quite a few Igbos have Jewish heritage.
