Okay, fine, roll your eyes, Ken. But others may be interested in the article.
Ken's just upset because he's one of the Illuminati and doesn't want to be found out.
That's why I have a Foreign Affairs mug sitting on my desk at work.
Funny. I always figured you for a Trilateral Commission man.
Or maybe a Bilderberger, given your ties to international oil interests.
I used to be a Merovingian; but I got better.
Interesting article, but I don't think its writers did much research.
First, the angel clearly told Daniel that the prince who was to come(the AC) would be from the people who would destroy jerusalem. Now, in Danny's day, J was in ruins from the Babylonian invasion, so this HAD to refer to a future destruction. J has been destroyed only once since then, by the ROMANS. Thus, the AC will be from the Romans....but that doesn't necessarily mean the ITALIANS. There were Romans on every shore of the Mediterranean and beyond.
Next, the Philistines came from a place called Caphtor, which was most likely Cyprus, although some authorities believe it was Crete. At any rate, it's known there were mass migrations after the worldwide devastation that included the plagues of Egypt. This included the Amelekites who brushed by Israel as they headed toward Egypt while Israel was headed in the opposite direction. It also included the Philistines leaving Caphtor for "Palestine".
It's known the Philistines were excellent ironsmiths and that they and Israel were alternately trading partners and bitter enemies. They submitted first to Assyria and then Babylon, so they were left in their own land. Thus they submitted to every empire in succession that ruled the area.
During Hadrian's dispersion of the Jews, they remained loyal to Rome, and were rewarded by being given the Jews' land by Rome. The names 'Palestine, Palestinian' are Latinized forms of 'Philistia, Philistine'. The Jews know this, & that's why so many of them hate the Pals & are dead-set against allowing to have any land within the boundaries set forth in Scripture.
I could bore everyone, including myself, in pointing out more errors in their article, but from the examples above, I hope we all 'get the picture'.
However, the ten tribes of Israel are SOMEWHERE. They may not be together; they may be entirely-separate nations or principalities today. But Scripture says they are here, and that God's gonna restore'em, so I keep watching.
