This week Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is on a four-day tour of East Africa, becoming the first prime minister to visit sub-Saharan Africa in almost 30 years. He visited Uganda, Kenya and Rwanda. He will also visit Ethiopia.
“Israel is coming back to Africa,” Netanyahu announced. “Africa is coming back to Israel.”
The goals of the trip are ostensibly to bolster diplomatic ties and secure business prospects in a region that has perhaps been overlooked by Israel in recent years.
Netanyahu also wanted to be in Uganda to mark the 40th anniversary of the dramatic Entebbe raid that rescued a planeload of hijacked Israelis. His brother, Yoni, died in the raid. During a welcoming ceremony, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni raised eyebrows by referring to Israel as “Palestine.”
In Rwanda, he highlighted the history of genocide that Israel shares with the nation where more than 800,000 people were murdered in an ethnic bloodletting two decades ago. Netanyahu also said that increased settlement in parts of the West Bank and Jerusalem were not barriers to peace negotiations.
Amidst all of this, one topic has not been discussed — the thousands of African Jews who already call East Africa home.
Many East Africans already feel deeply connected to Israel and the Jewish world — with or without a prime minster’s visit. In each country, there are small African Jewish or Israelite groups.
The Beta Israel is the region’s best-known Jewish community. It is a distinct religious group — centuries old — with its own customs, liturgy and form of non-rabbinic Judaism. Most of the Beta Israel left Ethiopia for Israel (where assimilation has been fraught with ongoing controversy — mass protests staged by Ethiopian Israelis as recently as last week). The Ethiopian Jewish population in Israel numbers more than 100,000. Still, there are thousands of other Ethiopians still in East Africa who practice Judaism.
‘Left Behind’: ‘Falashmura’ pray in Gondar, Ethiopia.
One group is known as the “Falashmura;” these are people who were forced to convert to Christianity, but still practice a form of Judaism. Their immigration to Israel was approved in November, but the process has not started. The Times of Israel recently dubbed them the “ones left behind.”
The Abayudaya are a small community of more than 2,000 who live in the mountainous area near the Kenyan border.
A century ago a tribal leader and anti-colonial military leader came to identify as a Jew, shrugging off what he saw as the colonial imposition of Christianity. He instructed his people to begin practicing Judaism as they understood it from reading the Bible. Decades later, the community connected with the American organization Kulanu and most of them underwent halachic conversions in the 2000s.
Rabbi Gershom Sizomu, leader of the Abayudaya, is now also a member of the Ugandan parliament.
Their current spiritual leader, Rabbi Gershom Sizomu was ordained in a Conservative rabbinical academy in California. He also recently won a parliament seat in Uganda, becoming the first Jewish MP. The Jewish Agency also has recognized this community as part of the worldwide Conservative movement.
The Abayudaya have also become well known for their music (one album was nominated for a Grammy) and distinctive, and popular, handcrafted yarmulkes.
Kenya is home to a much younger Jewish group, known as the Kasuku. There are no more than 100. A few decades ago, a small community here began incrementally moving towards Jewish practice. Some had taken up Messianic Judaism, mixing Jewish and Christian belief and ritual, and began learning more about normative Judaism as practiced elsewhere. They forged ties with the neighboring Abayudaya of Uganda and studied with their Jewish African neighbors, who had already received backing from American Jewish groups.
In 2006, the Abayudayan spiritual leader helped most the Kasuku convert to Judaism. “We started to understand there’s a difference between Messianic Judaism and Judaism,” one community leader told the Times of Israel in 2015, “and some of us chose to turn to Judaism.”
“Rwandans feel a deep camaraderie with Jews. The connection dates back centuries,” a New York Times writer once observed, “and some Rwandans consider the Tutsis one of the lost tribes of Israel.”
The Jewish or Israelite identification among some Rwandans may be more amorphous than neighboring countries. Some of the Tutsi, or Watusi, ethnic group claim ancient connections to the biblical Israelites. This looser and symbolic connection to Israel is one that is, perhaps, centuries old. The Tutsis also faced their own horrific genocide at the hands of the Hutu, the ethnic majority—which has added another layer of significance to the connection some feel to the Jewish people. It is unclear how many Tutsi hold such beliefs and whether those beliefs have shaped into any religious practice.
Return: A publication by Yochanan Bwejeri, who advocates for the “return” of the Tutsi people to Judaism.
“The Tutsi Jewishness was obstructed by [Christianity],” writes Yochanan Bwejeri, one Tutsi researcher dedicated to bolstering the connection of the Tutsi people to Judaism. “Today, Tutsis in increasing numbers are seeking t’shuvah, return,” Bwejeri wrote in an undated post on the Kulanu website. “Like the Western Jews, they envision ge’ulah, redemption.”

When Lucifer was originally created, Ezekiel 28:13-15 reveals that he was not only beautiful in appearance, but had a particular gift for music as “tabrets” and “pipes” are mentioned in connection with his creation. This account metaphorically refers to Lucifer as “the king of Tyre,” but no human king of Tyre was ever “perfect,” “in Eden” or served as an “anointed covering cherub.” When Lucifer fell into sin and rebellion, as Isaiah 14:12-19 records, Lucifer became Satan and used his talents to pervert and warp all that was good and beautiful in the creation. He has also used his musical talents to induce mankind to sin via music that promotes rebellion, lust, violence, etc. As this world “goes downhill” during the latter days in which we live, various forms of “music” have developed which promote sinful activities and attitudes.
According to Steve M. Collins the modern tribes of Israel are the USA, Canada, Scandinavia and many mainland European nations, Australia, New Zealand, the Jewish State of Israel and portions of many other nations. Pockets of Israelites are also located all along the migration routes out of Asia into modern Europe.
Israelite descendents have also been found in China (Naphtali) along the Levites discovered in Ancient India and modern South Africa. The Indian pyramids here in West Tennessee (Pinson Mounds) originally had white sand on the outside, mimicing the pyramids at Gyza built by Israelites. Almost every place in the world has been colonized by the Phoenicians/Israelites at some point. Not just Europe.

En 1966 The Melodians registraron su mayor éxito, con "Rivers of Babylon". Esta canción se convirtió en un himno del movimiento rastafari (Es un movimiento espiritual que mezcla creencias de varias religiones y que tiene su origen en Jamaica, Se basa en la interpretación del Antiguo Testamento ligada con creencias africanas y conciencia afro-caribeña acerca de la emancipación negra). Bob Marley era jamaicano, pacifista, apolítico y propulsor de la fe rastafari, por lo que es lógico pensar que como creyente rastafari y músico consagrado ligado al reggae decidiese versionar esta canción. De esta manera podemos afirmar que Mesopotamia y la Babilonia histórica junto a sus ríos tiene relación con la Jamaica rastafari,y por tanto con Bob Marley, ya que los rastas se dicen descendientes de las tribus perdidas de Israel y esperan que su redención se produzca con el éxodo que los sacará de Babilonia (el mundo blanco opresor) y los conducirá de vuelta a África.

That's how some people see the Jews: greedy & prone to conspire. The truth is far from that though. They have given the world the Bible, which is the most influencial book to lead mankind to good. Their persecution through out history has made them develop a survival spirit & that's why they have thrived in so many fields. Are there Jews conspiring against mankind then? Yes, but there are also gentiles conspiring against humankind. The worst regimes in history regarding human rights, nazi & comnunists, were deeply anti Jewish. As time passes by the anti Jewish sentiment has been evolving. After the destruction of the Temple by the Romans they were persecuted by the Christians for killing (alegedly) Jesus Christ. Although the Jews pressured the Romans to kill Him, they were a tiny minority of the Jewish population dwelling in the Holy Land, more so if it's added the Jewish population dwelling in the diaspora back then. In the 19th century & even more so in the 20th the new form of Jewish persecution was racial, saying nonsense like "the Jews are inferior" or the like. Nowadays there are two more forms of attacking the Jews. One is saying that they are not real Jews, but the offspring of Turkish converts to Judaism. The other form of anti Jewish persecution is zionism & the State of Israel. Genetics doesn't agree with the lie that Jews are mostly descended from Turkish converts to Judaism, the so called Khazars. According to genetics the great majority of Jews descend from ancient Israelites & are related to middle eastern peoples. Even if the Khazars were Turkish converts to Judaism, the great majority of Jews, including the Ashkenazis, don't have Khazar ancestry. Zionism is just another nationalism, like French nationalism, or Chinese nationalism. If the Jews or even the Jewish zionists dominated the mass media or the world organizations, they would have made, for example, a Disney blockbuster about Jews or about the nation of Israel. They haven't. The Jungle Book is in India, Mulan in China, The. Anvil & the Sword in England... Not even a single character in blockbusters is Jewish, let alone the main character. Israel is not even mentioned. The Jews lost Jordan from the original plan for a Jewish State & it seems like that they will also lose the West Bank (Judea & Samaria) & Gaza. The Palestinian refugees are another topic of contention against the Jewish State. The mass flight of Palestinians after the rebirth of the Jewish State was provoked by the war started by the alliance of the Palestinians & the Arab nations. At the same the combination of Arab nations & citizens attacked (without provokation whatsoever) their own Jewish citizens, causing a million Jewish refugees. The combination of lands belonging to these Arab Jews was far larger than the actual Israel.

A remarkable Jat blog (http://jatistan.blogspot.com) endorses British Israelism in one issue. After all, peoples like the Massagetae or the Scythians are considered to be Israelites with another name. Contrary to the Jews that came back maintaining religion & identity, these Israelites lost their Hebrew identity in their Medo-Persian captivity, including their name. The largest group that stayed in Medo-Persia begot the Kurds. From there a group traveled to Caucasia to finish their journey in norther Europe & western Europe, smaller groups stayed in Caucasia though. Another group moved from Medo - Persia to Central Asia & eventually moved to India & beyond. The descendence of lost Israel in India Pakistan & Afghanistan is known as Pashtun, Kalash, Rajput, Jatt... The Lost Israelite descendence that moved further east is known as Qiang, Chinkuki, Karen, Hmong-Miao, Naga...
