O, Assyrian! The rod of Mine
anger, and the staff in their
hand is Mine indignation.
I will send him against an
hypocritical nation and against
the people of My wrath will I
give him a charge.
. . .it is in his heart to cut off
nations not a few. (Isaiah10:5-7)

Who are the Germans? From which ancestor of Noah do they descend? May their roots be found in the ancient Miidle East? Does the Bible God's precious Word have anything to say with regard to the very talented German peoples and their ancient roots? Or does God ignore major nations in His Word?
We shall certainly see!
Could God's Word contain prophecies denouncing Egypt, Libya or Arabia, but contain nothing about German? This is a nation of about 80 millions jammed into 356,854 km2. It has large cities - Berlin (3.9 millions), Hamburg (1.6 millions), Munich (1.3 millions) and Cologne (0.9 millions). Britain has 57 millions, France 56 millions and Poland 38 millions. Its export drive and power is unsurpassed, dwarfing other European nations - $360 billion compared to France with $170 billion, Britain with $145 billion, Italy with $129 billion and Netherlands with $103 billion.
In 1990 the total domestic product in billions was $1,077, France $762, Britain $755 and Italy $754. In the same year, Germany's total production as a percentage of the European Union was: electricity 29%, crude steel 26%, all exports 30% and cars 35%. It was with great suddeness that Helmut Kohl brought Germany to reunification in 1990. With almost 80 million people, a formidable army and a potent export-driven economy, united Germany will again dominate Europe - an unnerving thought for some of its neighbours. And certainly a challenge to the American sponsored New World Order. Germany has its own plans for a European Order - one which it would like to see Europe dominate the New World Trading Order, rather than the North American plan to integrate the world's cultures and religions into one melting pot. Some are already addressing the problems now appearing between the four or five contenders for ownership of the New World Order. It should also be realised that each of these players are wracked with different views and factions. Currently the various forces in competition to dominate and unite the world are co-operating in areas of mutual interest or similarities. But what will happen when there are severe differences and ideological/religious divergences? What if Europe begins to feel that its very identity is at stake? What will a powerful German-dominated Europe do then?
The headlines have been screaming since German re-unification in 1990 with titles such as "THE NEW SUPERPOWER", "ANYTHING TO FEAR?", "GERMANY RISES AGAIN", "THE FOURTH REICH" and so forth.
No one can overlook their contibutions to science, music and literature. Yet they have patterns of national behaviour which has caused terrible suffering for others over the centuries?
Why are there so many similarities between the Germans and the Assyrians? This book contends with accepted histories that the Assyrians just simply disappeared into thin air and that no trace may be found of them. I simply do not accept such dogma! Why? For God's inspired, sacred and eternal Word predicts that in these Last Days the Assyrians will once more be a power to be reckoned with. Barton-Payne, famous for his superb Encyclopedia of Biblical Prophecy admits that the prophecies concerning Assyria are yet future. Another author, Arthur Bloomfield, who wrote Last Days likewise recognizes that the prophecies relating to Babylon and Assyria are yet future, but does not know who they are today. A.B. Davidson, author of Old Testament Prophecy admits that the prophecy of Micah 5:6 "represented the Assyrian as existing in the time of the Messiah", but unfortunately concludes that the interpretation should be allegorical, not literal!
Given the above, let us explore ancient history and trace the migrations of the Assyrians to their modern locations, employing many quotes so as to inculcate this knowledge into the mind of the reader by being backed up by the historical record. Every attempt will be made to detail the fine grains of the historical record into a solid rock of essential knowledge. Then, let us see what their incredible future holds.

CHART 2: THE ROYAL HOUSE OF AKKAD
MYSTERIOUS ORIGINS OF THE ASSYRIANS
May Assur, son of Shem and grandson of Noah, a giant of Biblical history, be identified with a contemporary, prominent historical character? Let us peer into the pages of history, accepting the dating methods of historians and hypothesize on the most probable personage of that age.
SARGON THE GREAT
The rise of powerful banking and financial centres ... big corporations ... fascisitic totalitarian governments ... super monarchies ... they all had their origins during the life of one of the most extraordinary and influential men of world history - Sargon the Great! He was the first war-lord of the Assyrian records with the name of Sharru(m)-kin, better known to us as Sargon and was regarded by the "Assyrians as the most mighty and famous of all kings".[i] Sargon means "True King" or "the king is legitimate", and is the Akkadian equivalent of the Hebrew word Melchizedek. One of his successors was Shar-kali-sharri, meaning "king of all kings" (cp. Revelation 19:16)[ii].
Who was this controversial figure - the world's first post-flood warlord? Why is he at the centre of understanding soon-coming changes in Germany that will usher in a New Order in Europe contrawise to the American-sponsored New World Order? How is it that he is critically linked to such giants in history as Napoleon ... Julius Caesar ... Hitler ... and others? More importantly, why should you, in our technologically advanced, materialistic world, a stone's throw away from the 21st century, bother about such a seemingly remote figure in the pages of ancient history?
The year is approximately 2260BC. And a small bundle of human flesh, almost obscured in a straw basket, floatas down the great river Euphrates, the very cradle of civilisation. And as it does so, in the early morning hours, one feels certain that the abandoned infant is doomed for a very short entrance on the stage of humanity. The child has barely the strength to cry. Cold, shivering. Desperately in need of nourishment and care. Seemingly at death's door. Now the sun is emerging from the far hills, its golden, caressing arms awakening the earth. The child makes no sound whatsoever. Soon the sunrise is casting streaks of radiant gold glory along the waters of the mighty river and - look! A tiny baby drifts ashore in its small basket. A woman servant of great King Ur-Ilbaba rushes toward the child and snatches it from its waiting tomb and rushes it to the king's palace ... .
That little child became known as Sargon, a son of an official in Kish. As we have seen, we are told in the legends, was found in a basket, floating down the Euphrates, when a woman of the household of Ur-Ilbaba, the king of Kish, rescued him (who Ur-Ilbaba is to be identified with in terms of Genesis X science, is not yet known). In any event, Sargon's wiliness and intellect led him to proceed to become the cupbearer and to usurp the throne.[iii] This and other remarkable events in this man's life has led to at least one historian describing him as a man marked of destiny.[iv] Overall, however, we know little of Sargon:
Even with Sargon. . ., the first and greatest of the line, we know precious little about his origins or the manner in which he reached his throne. By the end of the third millennium men still knew only that he had appeared, as it were, full-grown on the historical scene. Later on, he was given a nomad for a father and a temple votary for a mother, the latter having cast him adrift on the river in a basket of rushes, which bore him to a peasant who adopted him. Here we have a folklore motif known the world over. . .as a means of filling in the obscure origins of great men.[v]
Waddell thinks that his father's name was Bargin-Ibuz-Um or Buru-u-buz, Bai-Gin, Buu or Urudu-gina who was dethroned by Lugalzaggisi.[vi] However, others name his father as La'pu[vii] and much work needs to be done to identify him with the Biblical Shem. Also, Lloyd feels that it was Ku-Baba who adopted him as her own son in place of her own heir (then dead)[viii]. That heir was Ur-Zababa.
Here is an actual extract of a text written of him centuries after his death and which virtually deifies him:
My mother was a changeling [princess in some versions], my father I knew not. My city is Azupiranu [mentioned only here in history and not as yet identified], which is situated on the banks of the Euphrates. My changeling mother conceived me, in secret she bore me.
Note that he apparently did not know his father (=Shem?). That is, Shem probably rejected him from the birthright due to his warlike nature. Hence his name which means "the legitimate one". Could Assur have changed his name to reflect his outrage at being rejected in favour of his (twin?) brother Arphaxad? More on this matter in the following chapter.
Direct evidence of the existence of Sargon of Akkad and his remarkable exploits may be found in the following:
1. The Sumerian King List
2. The Sargon Chronicle
3. Inscriptions on Statues
4. The so-called King of Battle Epic
5. The so-called Legend of Sargon
6. Inscriptions of successors, particularly Naram-Sin
7. Nabonidus, a Babylonian king of the 6th century B.C. made reference to him
From the above sources we may summarise the following findings:
He was born of a cult princess, a "wife of the god" and although he had an inexplicable background, he became cupbearer to Ur-Ilbaba king of Kish. Later he deserted the king and founded the city of Akkad or Agade and ruled for about 55 years (ca. 2230-2174 B.C.) during which time he defeated Lugalzaggisi (who may have overthrown Sargon's father)[ix] and unified Sumer (the south) and Akkad (the North), thus "Sargon is noted as the first empire-builder in the Annals of history".[x] Sargon went on numerous military expeditions which took him to the Mediterranean Sea and the Taurus Mountains. Thus he was a man of war and strong leader, centralising power in himself and his descendents. He was also the first king in history to unite Mesopotamia under a single authority.[xi] Of course, like any history, stories become embellished over time and fact becomes mixed with fiction[xii].
Others describe him as "the first imperialist in history"[xiii], ruling over a "golden age" in the Near East. So great and famous was he that for a thousand years after his reign, his exploits were remembered in the epics[xiv].
His empire included many subdued nations who were crushed under his jack-boot: Sumer, Elam, Syria, Southern Anatolia[xv], and on into Persia and to the shores of the Mediterranean his expeditions were sent. Why was he imbued with such imperialistic zeal? Historian Jacquetta Hawkes gives us his personal assessment:
Sargon and his empire [was] the model for many successors down to recent time. . .[to]. .Napoleon. . .
It is said that Sargon's main motives for the exhausting and bloody business of carving out this first empire were economic, that he was after. . .trade monopolies of all kinds. . .surely the prime motive was. . .psychological, a demonic energy. . .that drove him on. . .to conquer and subdue became irresistible". [emphasis mine][xvi]
Sargon is the first Middle Eastern king we know of who has left monuments of importance and sculptured with battle-scenes.[xvii] He was certainly a man of war. Hall even labels him the Charlemagne of the Middle East[xviii] and whose empire had two halves[xix] like the Western and Eastern divisions of the Roman Empire. Hawkes further explains:
Sargon and his empire appear at once as the model for many successors down to recent times. He and his descendants shared many of the virtues and triumphs, the temptations, difficulties and final failure of Napoleon.[xx]
Waddell concurs, stating that the severity of Sargon's revenge on his foes is more than paralleled by that of the later 'world emperors' Alexander and Caesar, not to mention Napoleon Bonaparte..."[xxi]
Let the famous "Sargon Chronicle" itself expound the above:
Sargon, king of Agade, rose (to power) in the era of Ishtar and had neither rival nor opponent. He spread his terror inspiring glamour over all the countries,. . .he established. . .a central government. . .he marched against the country of Kazalla and turned Kazalla into ruin hills and heaps (of rubble). . .Later on, Subartu rose with its multitudes, but it bowed to his military might. . .[xxii]
Among Sargon's titles were Sakh, Saka, Saki or Sakko[xxiii] and 'The Great Khati'[xxiv] and his patron god was En-lil or Sakhar. The name of Sakh or Sakka means "the established lord or leader". If Sargon is indeed Assur, one wonders whether the name Saka, Scyth or Scythians, ultimately derived from Sakh. (More on this in chapter three.) Of further evidence is that the people of the Ancient Middle East had hair and hoods like those worn later by the Scythians[xxv].
Because Sargon called himself Sakh and "he who rules the Four Quarters", it indicates an assumption on his part of being a divinity as "this title has been reserved for high gods ... The Assyrian emperors took the title 'king of the Universe'."[xxvi] In fact, from the time of Sargon to Hammurabi, the names of the Babylonian kings were often written with the determinative dingir ('god'), used normally for gods and objects intended for worship.[xxvii]
In the inscriptions, Sargon repeatedly invokes the Sun-god along with Sagg or Sakh (En-Lil) and on one occasion the wife of Sagg. His son, Man-ishtushu, likewise worshipped the Sun-god and dedicated a stone-mace to the queen of the Sun-god at the Sun-temple of Sippara.[xxviii] Sagg had a weapon emblem which Sargon appropriated and when claiming victory over Uruk, vanquished his enemies and smote that city "by the battle-mace of Sagaga".[xxix] Another Chronicle states that Sargon won his battles with "the weapon of Lord Sakhar Tar".[xxx] Professor Waddell wrote that he felt that Tar is a rendition of Thor. He continues:
The name of this weapon and its pictorial sign are of significance. Its sign pictures what is regarded as a thunderbolt with an arrow-head; and it appears to be the same weapon which is carried by the Sumerian Hercules, the top of which is sometimes figured as a cross.[xxxi]
In a footnote he adds, that "it has the name of Bal, and is defined as 'spindle' or 'axe'." Was this a swastika? At this moment in time one cannot make a definitive statement giving concurrence to this postulation. The thunderbolt may be a symbol of Satan himself (cp Luke 10:18, Isaiah 14:2) and if Assur was worshipping the Devil, this may be a reason for Shem ex-communicating him from his presence.

THE ASSYRIAN SUCCESSION OF AKKAD
As we shall see later, Sargon, who founded the Akkadian Empire, absorbed the Neo-Sumerian culture and adopted the Sumerian pantheon. The Akkadians spoke a Semitic language which linguists allocate to the eastern branch of Semitic. Under Sargon the language spread, later dividing into Babylonian and Assyrian.[xxxii]
Not only was the speech and writing system of Akkad so widely spread, but so was the Sumero-Akkadian system of commerce, political government, legal custom and jurisprudence. Although political and military control changed hands from city to city and monarch to monarch through the centuries, the basic elements of these systems remained intact.[xxxiii]
Yes, the basic principle of Banking, Big Corporations, overly Centralised Governments, Authoritarianism and aloof-style monarchies, may be traced back to Sargon. Here was the post flood beginnings of predatory, imperialistic and militaristic fascism!
Historian Oppenheim concurs:
Not only did the Sumerian dynasty of Ur (called Ur III) follow Sargon's example, but the Assyrian kings of the next Millennium took him as their prototype and the image on which to model their political aspirations.[xxxiv]
His descendants, the Akkadians, called themselves and their language after the capital of the empire, Akkad.[xxxv] Their royal names and tradition of empire evidently lived on in Assyria.[xxxvi] Unfortunately, archaeologists have been unsuccessful to date in their attempts to locate Akkad or Agade but it is evidently close to Babylon.[xxxvii] Ah! for that discovery to be made for then much more would be revealed about Sargon and the Akkadians.
Let us now see what historians have to say concerning the very close relationship between the Akkadians and Assyrians:
the question arises whether the Akkadians did not have a more solid base of operations in Assyria than they had in Babylonia. In fact, in many respects the impression the Akkadians left in Assyria was deep and permanent. In so far as the language is concerned, Old Assyrian is the only Akkadian dialect which has preserved certain features typical of the Old Akkadian language. . .certain personal names are common to Old Akkadian and Old Assyrian ... The use by the Assyrians of typically Old Akkadian names is of particular significance ... the use of Old Akkadian names in the Old Assyrian period can be taken to indicate that many of the prominent Old Assyrian families proudly traced their ancestors back to Old Akkadians.
The most significant impact, however, which the Akkadians left in Assyria was ideological. Whereas in Babylonia the memory of the Sargonic kings was despised and their actions condemned as offensive to their national god, the Assyrians throughout their history cherished their memory and tried to emulate them.
Whereas in Babylonia they were remembered as foreign conquerors, the later Assyrians thought of them as their very own. Foremost among the ideas which, in the eyes of later generations, were embodied by the kings of Akkad was the creation of a universal empire, comprising what later princes used to call kissat matati, 'the totality of the countries'. Rarely was a Babylonian king interested in 'widening the bounds of his country'; with the exception of some Kassites, who were influenced by Assyrian ideas, they did not use titles such as sar kissati, 'king of the universe', sar kibrat erbettim, 'king of the four regions (of the world)', etc. The Assyrians, on the contrary, were expansion-minded throughout their history. As will be pointed out in greater detail below, the time of the empire builders Sargon and Naram-Sin was for the Assyrians a golden age, for the eventual return of which they hoped at periodic intervals; whenever computations revealed that the time was approaching when a new universal empire would materialize comprising all the lands 'from the Upper Sea where the sun sets to the Lower Sea where the sun rises, a king of Assyria chose the throne name Sargon ... The first Assyrian ruler who adopted both the title sarrum 'king' and the more ambitious and programmatic 'king of the universe' was Shamshi-Adad I, who actually assembled an empire of impressive proportions under his sceptre; the last was Nabonidus, king of Babylon, who tried to emulate his illustrious ancestor, Esarhaddon.
The Assyrian rulers showed their reverence for Sargon and Naram-Sin not only by their conquests. The Babylonians bitterly resented it when a king built his residence in a city other than Babylon; this resentment is traceable from the earliest times down to the end of their empire: in the Chronicle concerning Sargon and Naram-Sin, they blame the founder of the Akkadian dynasty for having built, near Akkad, 'a likeness of Babylon'[xxxviii] [emphasis mine throughout].
Note how the Assyrians claimed succession from Akkad, but not so the Babylonians.
All we can say with absolute certainty is that Sargon and his successors conquered the land that later became known as Assur and had many descendants who dwelt there.[xxxix] We know that both cities of Nineveh and Assur benefited greatly from the Akkadian kings' building activities. At Assur, a dagger blade has been found bearing the name of Abazu, and which was dedicated to Sargon's son, Man-ishtushu. Abazu appears as the thirteenth of seventeen early 'kings' on the Khorsabad list of Assyrian kings. Experts still don't know when to date the list, but it seems to begin some time shortly after Sargon's death.[xl] After the chaos of the fall of the Akkadian Empire, the natural successors were the Assyrians whose kingdom appears about 1900 B.C. with the opening of a new line of kings bearing Akkadian names such as Sargon or Naram-Sin.[xli] Of the Assyrian king list historian Roux remarks:
. . .the great Assyrian king list found at Khorsabad. . .gives a series of seventeen kings of Assur who, if we are to take the list at its face value, would have lived in Early Dynastic times. But here, as in the Sumerian list, dynasties recorded as successive may have been in fact parallel. . .names of several early Assyrian monarchs such as Tudia, Ushpia, Sulili or Kikkia are neither Semitic nor Sumerian, but belong to some other ethnic stratum, possibly Hurrian.[xlii]
We should thus realisxe that from Asshur came the ongest succesion of great conquerors in the history of any nation except Rome[xliii]
Although there is no direct evidence at this time that Sargon was worshipped as Assur, nor is he the first on the king list, we do know that Assur was the principle god of the Assyrians, the Assyrian kings themselves acting as the high priest of Assur.[xliv] We also know that Sargon was highly revered by the Assyrians and virtually thought of as their ancestor, particularly around the area of centre of his worship, the city Assur itself.
Relatively recently, archeologists have discovered that sharing the limelight with Akkad in the early post-flood period, we find a rival power known as Ebla whose king at that time was Ebrum (the Biblical Eber?). A closely aligned city was Mari. It appears that the early descendants of Ebla were descendants of Arphaxad (father of the Aryans), while those in the vicinity of Mari were the early Aramaeans (notice the city of Mari in the north-western Soviet Union is in the area of the Syrenians or Komi, descendants of Aram). Ebla was eventually ravished and burned by Naram-Sin (son of Man-ishtushu and grandson of Sargon) which resulted in harsh and brutal treatment in true Akkadian (and Assyrian) practice. People had to strive daily against disease and wars which resulted in turn in fire, decimation, slavery and deportation.[xlv] The Gutians later wreaked revenge, shattering the Akkadian Empire of Shar-Kali-Sharri, son of Naram-Sin, thus allowing the neo-Sumerian revival to take place. The Gutians were possibly descendants of Gether, son of Aram.
The political chaos which ensued must have been considerable; for the compilers of the king-list content themselves with the rhetorical question, 'Who was king? Who was not king?'[xlvi]
SARGON AND THE RACE QUESTION
To understand how the great Sargon viewed the race question and how he treated other races, we need to turn to the outset of his reign--the genesis of his empire.
All the historians acknowledge that Sargon defeated Lugalzaggisi, son of Ukush in a surprise, blitzkrieg-type attack.[xlvii] Lugalzaggisi was Nimrod, son of Cush. Cush was black and Nimrod himself appears to be of mixed descent (Lugalzaggisi was the first post-flood dictator of Mesopotamia, known as the King of Uruk).
Fortunately for Lugalzaggisi, his life was spared, and he was permitted to return to Umma as a provincial governor. From that time commenced the racial antagonism between the fair Akkadian- speaking north and the swarthy Sumerian-speaking south.[xlviii] By the way, Lugal means great man or great king[xlix] Also, texts from that period have been found which may be translated as "the King is my Fortess", "the King is my God" and "Sargon is my God" which began a perception by the Akkadians that Sargon and his successors were messiahs of some sort[l].
Sargon thence commenced the process of making his people the dominant race in Babylonia.[li] Who were the previously dominant people in Babylonia? According to Orr[lii] evidence suggests that the founders of Babylonia were dark Hamites! In fact, after conquering Lugalzaggisi, his followers and descendants, Sargon said: For forty-five years the kingdom I have ruled, and the black heads [euphemism for the black race] I have governed.[liii]
On another occasion he declared: Ishtar loved me. . .years exercised dominion,. . .years I have commanded the black-headed people. . .and ruled them. . .[liv]
Professor Sayce states: There are 'light enamelled bricks of the Elamite period on which a black race of mankind is portrayed, it may mean that the primitive population of Chaldea was black skinned'.[lv]
The above-mentioned statement is simply self-explanatory: Black peoples were extant in Mesopotamia soon after Noah's flood. Regarding the neo-Sumerians in the south (comprising the earliest Micronesians, Aboriginals, Dravidians and possibly white Hungarians. All this will be explored in a future volume of this ongoing series) and the Akkadians to the north (earliest Assyrians), researchers ask both themselves and their readers "how did these peoples get on?"[lvi] Sometimes we find complete denial of anything except idyllic relations between these racial neighbours, while at the other times "rabid national antagonism" sings out clearly in the historical record.[lvii]
Archeologist Lloyd in the excellent work The Archaeology of Mesopotamia supports this view:
Culturally, the most conspicuous distinction between the two ethnic groups was a linguistic one.
One notices that. . .there is some evidence of discrimination in favour of the Akkadian element among Sargon's supporters. Akkadian governors were installed in the other Sumerian cities and the Sumerian language ceased to be used for administrative purposes.[lviii]
Waddell speculates that these white peoples under Sargon's leadership civilized many of the conquered black peoples of Chaldea.[lix] As Sargon's power and influence waxed great, white Aramaeans moved into the region and seemed to aid in solidifying his reign.[lx] Sargon commenced to build a new seat "and this housed his own warriors and their families, not a mixed multitude from Kish. . .". Notice, Sargon believed in segregation of the races! He would not permit his supporters or descendants to mix with other races! Edwards claims that such a development can have been effected only by a new population conscious of its difference and even of hostility to the old."[lxi]
Sargon's grandson, Naram-sin, continued Sargon's racial policy whereby "he found equally high clerical or civil posts for his numerous progeny."[lxii] Close to the end of Sargon's life, it was the southern cities of Sumer which revolted against his reign, not the northern Akkadians. These dark inhabitants were crushed in the most cruel, hate-filled fighting imagineable[lxiii] after which they were driven out into southern Asia.
The aftermath of the Sargonic collapse after Shar-Kali-Sharri's reign was a greatly reduced Akkad and a resurgent dynasty of Ur, represented in the Neo-Sumerian revival.
The dynasty of Ur represents a very definite Sumerian reaction against the Semites [i.e. followers of Sargon]...Orthodox Babylonian scribes in later times could not forgive him for the insult offered to the shrine of Bel Marduk. . . .[lxiv]
So closed the great Sargonic period which brought so many benefits in technology to Mesopotamia and paradoxically, such cruelty and suffering to other races.
We might succinctly summarise this chapter by listing the basic arguments for identifying Sargon with Assur. These arguments are listed in point form below:
1. Sargon lived at the very time when Assur would have been extant, after Noah's Flood.
2. He had very similar characteristics one would expect Assur, forefather of the Assyrians, to have had. In particular his imperialism, military prowess, organizational skills and government centralism.
3. The Assyrians followed his lead, modelling their own system upon his.
4. Many of the kings of Assyria were named after Sargon or his successors. In fact, the Assyrians made common use of Old Akkadian names.
5. The Assyrian language is the only one which reflects the original Akkadian tongue.
6. Sargon was revered and his time was regarded as a golden-age by the Assyrians.
7. Abazu, possibly an early Assyrian tribal chief, is thought to have paid homage to Sargon's son, Man-ishtushu. Could this have been a practice of a brother bowing to the firstborn?
8. Neither Sargon nor Assur are listed as number one on the Assyrian king lists. Might one then ask whether the 17 early tribal chiefs of Assyria were Sargon's descendants or descendants of another grandson of Noah.
9. Sargon was race conscious and despised other races.
The above summarises the major pointers towards arguing for an Assur/Sargon identity. Perhaps with future archaeological discoveries, further light will be shed to either reinforce this tentative chapter, or reject its hypothesis outright.

THE FEARSOME ASSYRIANS
Who has not heard of the ancient Assyrian World Empire? Of its brilliance, exploits, mercilessness and extremes in cruelty? What were these terrible Assyrians like? Most importantly, what is the link between Sargon and modern nations? We shall see as we progress through the incredible revelation of this book, they have everything to do with todays world events!
OUTLINE OF ASSYRIAN HISTORY
It is appropriate that we take a succinct look at the history of the mighty descendants of Asshur. As all Bible students note, the Assyrians descend from Asshur, or Assur, second son of Shem (Genesis 10:22) and twin brother to Arphaxad. Traditionally, offspring are listed according to age: the firstborn is always listed first. In Genesis 10:22, we find listed five sons of Shem. Elam is clearly the firstborn. If Asshur was a twin brother of Elam, this would surely have been mentioned as with other twins in Scripture. But the antagonisms between Asshur and Arphaxad demonstrate that in all likelihood that they were twins with Asshur's birth possibly preceding Arphaxad's (compare Genesis 25:21-23). Arphaxad and Asshur must have been twins for Scripture states that Arphaxad was begotten "two years after the Flood" (Genesis 11:10). In other words, Elam was begotten in the first year after the Flood and his two brothers begotten a year later. It is impossible for three separate births to have occurred within two years. Not surprisingly, Asshur's name means 'strong' or 'powerful'. Or, as Josephus put it:
Ashur lived at the city Nineve; and named his subjects Assyrians, who became the most fortunate nation, beyond others.[lxiv]
In other words they were a greatly blessed people, second only to the descendants of Arphaxad and Aram. As we shall see later in this book, God, by electing the line of Arphaxad to do His work and to lead the world, has led to Assur's bitter jealousy of Arphaxad and an age-long antagonism which will culminate in a great show-down between their descendants in the years just ahead.
The supreme god of the Assyrians was Asshur[lxiv] who later became known in Europe as Tyr or Tir, derived from Atir or Athur, which is the Indo-Germanic form of the Hebrew Asshur! According to Ragozin,[lxiv] Assur's original name may be spelled Asshur, and the central, original district of Assyria was known as Aturia.[lxiv] Asshur may also be spelled Assyr.[lxiv] The Medes named the land Assura[lxiv] and the Persians Athursa.[lxiv] After Assyria fell, the region of Assyria became known as Arziri[lxiv] and as Athura when it was a satrapy in the Persian Empire. It is possible that this may be the origin of the name Arthur and the Germanic god Thor, who with his hammer, the Swastika, crushed the enemies of his worshippers. It should also be noted that in front of the temple to Assur in the city of Assur was displayed a swastika on a limestone slab.
The Assyrians were peoples of vast accomplishments. They had a love for the establishment and building of new cities[lxiv] (see Garner's Royal Cities of Assyria), and were great road-builders.[lxiv] Their greatest city was, of course, Nineveh, also known as Ninus or later as Hierapolis.[lxiv] We know too that Sargon of Akkad (who may have been Assur himself, as we have seen) defeated Lugalzaggessi (Nimrod), and loved to build new cities. He
set up a pattern of royal behaviour which was to be taken up later by the Middle Assyrian Kings. . .It therefore may not be an accident that Sargon's name was adopted by more than one Assyrian King.[lxiv]
Oppenheim claims that the Assyrian kings loved hunting down animals, especially lions.[lxiv] Indeed as we shall see later in chapter seven and appendix four, the lion became an important symbol of the Assyrian Empire. One of the most prominent symbols of Assyria was the eagle: is this where many of the eagle symbols of Central Europe originate?[lxiv] The prophet Micah himself equates Assyria with "the land of Nimrod" (Micah 5:6). Nimrod founded Babel (Genesis 10:10; 11:1-9), from which Babylonia arose. Under the Assyrians, Babylon often had special privileges and freedoms and was considered holy ground.[lxiv] Assyrian dictator Ashurbanipal himself said:
Since Babylon is the 'bard' of [all] lands, the privilege of kidinnw-status [legal protection] is assured for anybody who enters it, and an allotment to citizen-status is certain for any Babylonian citizen; not even a dog which enters it is killed.[lxiv]
The Assyrians gradually spread out and during the Old Assyrian period (Ca. 1900 B.C. to 1365 B.C.) they found themselves often as dependants of the Babylonians and later of the Mitanni. During this period they excelled as merchants and established a plethora of colonies in Anatolia, particularly at Cappadocia.[lxiv] Assyria emerged in the 14th century B.C. as an independent state comprising the Middle Assyrian period (Ca. 1365-1013 B.C.), fully militarized and immensely powerful. Its power declined after the death of Tukulti-Ninurta (Ca. 1208 B.C.) but was briefly restored upon the ascension of Tiglath-pileser I. With the arrival of the 9th century B.C., and a new period of expansion began, known as the Neo-Assyrian period (Ca. 1013 B.C. to 612 B.C.) with the arisal of a series of very strong kings, in particular the terrible Tiglath-pileser III, Sargon II, Sennacherib and Esharhaddon.[lxiv] They succeeded in uniting most of the Near East from Egypt to the Persian Gulf into one gigantic imperial power bloc. It is interesting to note that hisorians refer to Pax Assyriaca, a period of approximately 70 years of peace, from 700 to 630BC enforced by the Assyrian Empire[lxiv]
THE ASSYRIAN CHARACTER AND ETHNICITY
Historians often label the Assyrians as the "Prussians of the Ancient World"[lxiv]whose function it was "to safeguard the civilized world against [Barbarian] threats"[lxiv] much like the function of Germany during the Middle Ages. We know too that the Assyrians were a very nationalistic people. Writes Oppenheim:
In Assyria there was a strong sense of participating in a common and native way of life which repeatedly proved persistant enough to survive military defeats and foreign domination. Who the carriers were who kept the political and cultural tradition and the Assyrian language alive through the eclipses of political power is extremely difficult to say. The right answer would reveal to us the very fountain head of Assyrian strength and staying power.[lxiv]
We shall see shortly who the carriers of Assyrian culture and civilization were. Unlike other nations, the Assyrians were very submissive to their centralized authority for no trace may be found anywhere of popular reaction to the royalty and its administration.[lxiv] Their military discipline and political organization was quite unique in the Semitic world.[lxiv] Indeed it was unique, for the 'true blue' Assyrian was not an Arabic Semite at all. If this be so, then within which ethnic group may they be classified? In the ancient Middle East, historians, archaeologists and linguists
Cannot define and describe the racial or ethnic groups. The relation between these three categories, linguistic, racial and ethnic, is exceedingly complex in Mesopotamia and still far from being sufficiently investigated. . .racial, ethnic, and linguistic categories only rarely correspond in such complex civilizations.[lxiv]
Thus, for anyone who dogmatically states that the Assyrians were Semites, is dwelling in a pure fantasy world. Another historian, Worrell, in his work A Study of Races in the Ancient Near East states that "we have little evidence of the state of affairs in ancient times."[lxiv] Many different peoples dwelt within the Assyrian Empire for they conquered a variety of ethnic groups: Kassites, Qutians, Lullumeans, Subarians, Kadmukh, Uqumen and Papkhu (Hurrian mountain folk).[lxiv] Not also the following quote from the authoritative Pictorial Biblical Encyclopedia: "The ethnic origins of the Assyrians are still disputed among scholars"[lxiv].
All historians know that the Assyrian army was not of sufficient size to supply forces to guard all other numerous strategic points in their vast but complex empire. As the population was relatively small, they could not provide an army large enough to protect their expanding empire. This led to a loss of manpower and consequent need to fill the ranks. "This was done by recruiting auxiliary forces of foreign origin mainly from conquered countries or vassal states."[lxiv] As a result, the Assyrian army was composed of various nationalities; yet, they were loyal to the King of Assyria.[lxiv]
. . .it is mentioned frequently in royal inscriptions that peoples from outside Assyria were constantly being added to [Assyria].
. . .the massive influx of Semitic-speaking peoples from the south-west, to be continually reinforced until Assyria as an empire existed no more.
They incorporated the troops of conquered or vassal states into the Assyrian army, and Ashurnasir-pal even populated his new capital Calah with people from conquered territories.
. . .Assyrian cities thus became cosmopolitan and polyglot; with the possibility that within them people of actual ancient Assyrian descent were a minority.[lxiv]
We know that not all peoples called "Assyrian" were ethnically descendants of Assur, for Assyria became an empire of many tribes and peoples. Historian Larsen states that "the continual channelling of conquered populations into the palace and the private sectors of the four great cities of Assyria was clearly a deliberate move to meet a labor shortageat the centre of the empoire ... ."[lxiv]
It is my contention that they were not dolicocephalic (long-headed) Arabic Semites. However, it is known that many dolicocephalic Babylonians brought for Assurbanipol[lxiv] as deportees became Assyrian subjects and liable for both civil and military duty.[lxiv] Conversely, there were many Assyrians which indicated clear brachycephalicy[lxiv] (round-headed. See also figure 18 in Albenda).[lxiv] The Alpine element also dominated the peoples of Asia Minor and Sumeria.[lxiv] The portrait of a noble lady of Ashur in Olmstead[lxiv] is clearly meso-or brachycephalic typical of Central Europeans. A similar type is found in the gypsum statue of a noble of Asshur.[lxiv]
Historians certainly do recognize that alongside the Semites in the Middle East also dwelt a brachycephalic type.[lxiv] These 'Alpine' types dwelt in Syria and Mesopotamia.[lxiv] It was also through Northern Assyria that the dividing line ran between Alpines and the Semites.[lxiv] Of course, many Alpine Assyrians also dwelt in the south, but it seems that the bulk of them dwelt in the north next to their racial brethren, the Aramaeans. Of these Aramaeans, Cotterel[lxiv] writes that in the 9th Century B.C.
Ethnically Assyria was undergoing a major change during this period in that the Aramaic element in the population was increasing dramatically. This was brought about, not only by the peaceful infiltration of Aramaeans into the state, but also by the Assyrian practice of transporting gigantic numbers of conquered foreigners, most of whom were Aramaeans, to Assyria to work on the enormous building projects of the day. Over the generations this new element or at least a proportion of it, slowly worked its way up the social and economic scale, so that by the eighth century B.C. there were Aramaeans at a very high level in the civil service and army, and the Aramaic language had virtually replaced Assyrian as the everyday language.
Woolley writes of the Martu (Amuru):
To the north and east of them, in the Zagros hills and across the plain to the Tigris, there lived a very different stock, fair-haired and speaking a 'Caucasian' tongue, a hill-people akin to the Guti . . . they failed to gain a footing in the new delta and remained in what was afterwards, Assyria, the neighbour land of Akkad.[lxiv]
A portrait of Ashurnazirpal, based on the sculptures in the British museum show him with typical European features.[lxiv] The same is true of other Assyrians.[lxiv] Such European-type Assyrians may be regarded as the ruling class, inner elite or core of the empire. They were neither a Semite (Arabic) people nor Aryan,[lxiv] but their culture was related to that of the Indo-Europeans or Aryans.[lxiv]
The Aryan Mitanni ruled Assyria for some time and consequently influenced Assyria both culturally and ethnically.[lxiv] Contenau wrote that nations collectively called Khar-men (Gar-men) meaning "men of war" had "dominated for a long time the land of Assyria. . .[and populated] Mesopotamia, and all the territory of Assyria to the Zagros Mountains."[lxiv] We find, then, several ethnic elements comprising Assyria. However, the description of the original type appears to be Alpine which is of a mesocephalic (mid-range between long and round headed types) or brachycephalic skull type.
This privileged upper class comprising the high administrative officials and citizens of the old privileged cities were protected by the King for he dared not offend them.[lxiv] It is this inner core, shall we estimate twenty percent, who were the direct descendants of Assur, for he was white, not Arabic brown (Semitic). A lengthy quote from Sayce's Races of the Old Testament sums up the physical and mental characteristics of the Assyrians:
[Their] hair was black and artificially curled in the whiskers and beard. The eyes also were black, the skin white [not brown like the Arabic Semites]. . .his favourite occupations were commerce and war. But the Assyrian remained to the last merely a conquering caste. His superiority, physical and mental, to the older population [i.e. the Semites] of the country had made his first invasion of it irresistible, and the iron discipline and political organisation which he subsequently maintained enabled him to preserve his power. He had been called the Roman of the East, and in many respects the comparison is just. Like the Romans he had a genius for organising and administering, for making and obeying laws, and for submitting to the restraints of an inexorable discipline. The armies of Assyria swept all before them, and the conception of a centralised empire was first formed and realised by the Assyrian Kings. [Eventually] the older population became predominant. . .and had continued to exist by the side of them.[lxiv]
Los agrees, stating that "as soon as this class was exhausted their empire was ruined."[lxiv] Haddon[lxiv] also mentions the dramatic Semitisation which occurred in Assyria. See also Roux's comments.[lxiv] No wonder the inscriptions portray the majority of Assyrian citizens as Semitic. However, the ruling class was Alpine White, with mainly dark hair and eyes. With them were many Aryans as we have seen.
The Semite remnants of this once powerful Empire are called Assyrians, Assyroids or Aissores by Anthropologists. Since 70 A.D. they have been Christians. They fled the Mongol invasions to Turkey, settling in the Kurdish country south of Lake Van.[lxiv] Other remnants of the Assyrian Empire appear to be the Ossettes.
THE TERRIBLE ASSYRIAN WAR MACHINE
The nations of the ancient world, like those of today, had special identifying characteristics which historians acknowledge and describe. For example the Carthaginians are known as a merchant power and the Canaanites as a very sneaky, devious and perverted people. So guess what historians universally agree as to the nature of the Assyrian Empire? A great commercial and military power! Their character, writes Cottrell,[lxiv] was that of oppressors and warriors a nation in which the kings of Assyria perfected despotism. The Encyclopedia Brittannica states that the Assyrians were famous for ther cruelty , fighting prowess and builders of monuments.[lxiv]
It should come as no surprise that Assyrian outposts had such names as kar-sharrukin and kar-nineb, the word "kar" meaning "fortress."[lxiv] The ferocious Assyrian army was armed to the hilt with the most glittering and technologically advanced weapons of their day.[lxiv] As a result, throughout all the ancient Middle East, the very thought of the beastly Assyrian war machine sent spine-chilling shivers up their opponents spines! Baikie in his Lands and Peoples of the Bible bluntly states thus of them:
With the possible exception of the Huns, or the wild hordes of Tamerlane, there has probably never existed, in the history of the world, a power so purely and solely destructive, so utterly devoid of the slightest desire to make any real contribution to the welfare of the human race, as Assyria. But the Huns and the hordes of Tamerlane were untaught savages. In the case of Assyria you have a highly organised and civilized people. . .[they have] a tremendous aptitude for organisation and discipline. . .with the ruthless spirit of a Red Indian brave and an absolute delight in witnessing the most ghastly forms of human suffering. . .the outside, a splendid specimen of highly developed humanity the inside a mere ravening tiger.[lxiv]
Their conquered lands lived in a constant state of fear and terror of what Piotrovsky calls the "Assyrian Secret Service."[lxiv] These Gestapo-like agents were cunning and clever, ruthlessly dealing with the faintest of opposition.[lxiv] The Assyrian troops were taught to be deliberately cruel and as savage as possible to the conquered peoples to be horribly barbaric, mercilessly cruel and to enjoy it! Many of the conquered peoples were simply tortured for the pleasure of it! For example, they would destroy faces by applying boiling asphalt or severing lower lips, fingers and ears.[lxiv] They simply destroyed and burned whole towns. They often destroyed through incendarism[lxiv] while hostile rulers were skinned alive or impaled[lxiv] (See Isaiah 36:12). Kalyanaraman writes how the Assyrian cruelty and brutality has never been equaled as they were 'dedicated' to spreading ruin, bloodshed and indiscriminate slaughter wherever they set foot.[lxiv] At any given time the King of Assyria could muster a gigantic army running into literally hundreds of thousands of men. It consisted of tightly organized, well disciplined troops integrating specialist units of many types.[lxiv] This vast army was the core instrument used by the Kings of Assyria in their attempts at world conquest. They attempted to conquer the world! In so doing, they created an empire vaster than any previous to it.[lxiv] From the time of Shalmaneser I onwards, the Assyrian Kings called themselves by the title of 'Shar Kishshati' meaning 'King of the World.'[lxiv] It is from thence that the titles Caesar, Shah, Tsar, Czar and Kaiser probably originate. Although the Assyrians used peoples of various nations to fight with them,[lxiv] "each ethnic group retained its identity for fighting purposes."[lxiv] Oded's masterpiece Mass Deportations and Deportees in the Neo- Assyrian Empire reports that millions of people were deported! The Assyrians did not split the deportee's families and then disperse them throughout the empire. Rather they
Were anxious to preserve the community life of the deportees by resettling them together as homogenous small groups, as far as kinship, religion and culture were concerned.[lxiv]
Note, the Assyrians were race-conscious! They demanded that ethnic diversity be maintained. These cruel and oppressive deportations led to the deportees being transported over distances that historians simply term 'enormous.'[lxiv] An entire, vast civil service was established to run this enterprise and to maintain its operation at a very efficient level.[lxiv] The Kings of Assyria, far from hiding their barbarity, loved to boast of their shocking cruelty during military campaigns,[lxiv] (See also Isaiah 36:4-5) for war was their favorite occupation.[lxiv] For example, Tiglath-Pileser I, the nearest ancient form to Hitler, addressing the gods in about 1100 B.C., said:
Asshur, father of the gods, empowered me to depopulate and to repopulate, to make broad the boundary of the land of Assyria.[lxiv]
On another occasion he proudly boasted of his attack upon the Aramaeans and Hittites:
I slaughtered them, and brought back booty, possessions and goods innumerable. . .I burned, I laid waste and I destroyed. . . .[lxiv]
We know that on at least one occasion he used the swastika as a decoration.[lxiv] This should tell us something of the dark forces of evil inspiring him. One king after his conquest of Babylon, wrote:
I slew one of every two. I built a wall before the great gates of the city. I flayed the chief men of the rebels and I covered the walls with their skins. Some of them, I enclosed alive within the bricks of the walls; some of them were crucified alive with stakes along the wall. I caused a great multitude of them to be flayed in my presence, and I covered the walls with their skins.[lxiv]
Famous Assyrian king, Assurbanipal wrote:
For one month and twenty-five days, I devastated the districts of Elam; sons of kings, sisters of kings, members of Elam's royal family, young and old; prefects, governors, knights, artisans, horses and mules, more numerous than swarms of locusts, I carried them off, as booty, to Assyria. I put an end to their fields, which I left for the asses, the gazelles and all manner of wild beasts, to dwell.
Heads were cut off yet while people were still alive, as were tongues before they were flayed alive and tossed into a red-hot furnace. After sieging cities, the inhabitants were forced to kill their own children and eat their flesh. Enemy soldiers who were not killed, committed suicide or starved to death were treated in the following fashion according to the very words of Ashurbanipal himself:
"I ripped out the tongues of those officers whose mouths had blasphemed against Ashur, my master, and then slaughtered them. Any soldiers who were found still alive were flogged in fromt of the winged bulls built by Sennacherib's tomb, and then tossed their quivering flesh for the jackals, the birds and the fish to eat. In this way I placated the wrath of the gods who had become incensed by their ignominious deeds"[lxiv].
They perfected the Hurrian war chariot, invented siege machines, knew about different tactics such as flank and frontal attacks and practised an aweful burnt-earth policy. Wherever they could, they took slaves. In one inscription in honour to Shalmaneser I we read:
"I besieged the city, occupied it, killed many of its warriors, carried off much booty, built a mountain of heads outaside the city and set fire to fourteen settlements in the area".[lxiv]
They had so great a belief in themselves and the leadership of their god, Asshur, that they acquired a sense of divine mission. They maintained their stability upon the Near East through psychological warfare, by impressing upon surrounding nations "that it was vain to attempt to oppose Assyria."[lxiv] They were such masters of psychological warfare that their foes would often capitulate in horror without offering any resistance.[lxiv] The terrible Assyrian war machine was well known for its extreme cruelty. Such cruelty was part of an evil military strategy cleverly designed at striking fear and panic into the cities and nations under attack, who, when they heard the dreadful fate of those who resisted, surrendered all the more quickly. For it was within the Assyrian army its shock troops that the strength of Assyria lay[lxiv] and who were "characteristically ferocious."[lxiv] One Assyrian king wrote thus of his hated enemies, the Mushki:
I brought about their defeat like a storm demon. I piled up the corpses of their warriors on the battlefield (and) made their blood flow into the hollows and plains of the mountains. I cut off their heads (and) staked them like grain piles around their cities.[lxiv]
Another Assyrian King, Assurnasirapli II ( Ca. 883-859 B.C.) was famous for his mass executions and cruel scourgings.[lxiv] Entire cities were slaughtered, babies' heads smashed against walls and little children taken by their legs and torn in two! A glimpse of this ancient barbarism may be witnessed in such fantasy films as "Conan the Barbarian" and the "Beastmaster". Assurbanipal, previously referred to, ruled through a most efficient governmental system based on highly centralized lines. This made him a totalitarian dictator which no one was able to overthrow, resist or challenge. His centralized system typifies the Assyrian mind and character. Yet a further King, Tiglath-Pileser III (Ca. 744-727 B.C.), initiated a policy of mass deportations of defeated or rebellious peoples. They felt that if you could remove a people from their land, language and gods, you could thoroughly break them of their roots, will and spiritual back bone. A policy that really worked.[lxiv]
Their continuous military achievements inculcated
A sense of superiority. This realization of the national ideal promoted the growth of self-confidence and national pride. The Assyrians were the victors, the overlords, while all the other nations were inferiors.[lxiv]
As time progressed, the Assyrians gained an ever more racist attitude, coming to believe that they were the master-race! This gathered momentum with the impressive gains made by Tiglath-Pileser III (744-727 B.C.) and Sargon II (Ca. 721-705 B.C.).[lxiv] Oded continues:
This deep-rooted feeling of superiority led to a sterner attitude towards deportees, and sharpened the differentiation between Assyrians. . .and non- Assyrians. . .
More and more, their captives were exploited as a source of manpower mainly for forced labour, and as cheap human material.[lxiv]
The description here seems much like the Nazi's methods during World War Two. One technique used upon invaded lands, in an attempt to starve the inhabitants into submission, was to cut down all their fruit trees and destroy their beautiful forests. In fact, the Assyrians would carry trees away and plant them in their own lands![lxiv]
II Kings 19:23 refers to this type of practice. Here Sennacherib states: "I will cut down the tall cedar trees thereof, and the choice fir trees thereof" (See Isaiah 14:8; 37:24; Jeremiah 6:6). As a result, wood for fire, implements and industry were destroyed and an entire economy was shattered thereby! Other Scriptures from God's inspired Word back up the historical accounts of Assyrian primitive savagery:
Behold, thou hast heard what the kings of Assyria have done to all lands, by destroying them utterly; and shalt they be delivered? . . .And Hezekiah prayed. . .Of a truth, Lord, the Kings of Assyria have destroyed the nations and their lands (II Kings 19:11, 15, 17).
The Bible also makes reference to the clever but lying Assyrian war propaganda:
Thus saith the King of Assyria, make an agreement with me by a present, and come out to me, and then eat ye every man of his own vine, and every one of his fig tee, and drink ye everyone the waters of his cistern:
Until I come and take you away to a land like your own land, a land of corn and wine, a land of bread and vineyards, a land of oil olive and of honey, that ye may live, and not die; and hearken not unto Hezekiah, when he persuadeth you saying, The Lord will deliver us (II Kings 18:31-32).
What a pack of lies and propaganda, and so similar to Nazi propaganda of World War II.
THE HORRIBLE ASURAS OF INDIAN LEGEND
In the famous Rig Veda, the hymns of the White Aryans of north-west India, mention is made time and again of the demons called the Asuras, the 'hereditary' foes of their gods. 'Asuras' means big, strong, powerful, noble or victorious.[lxiv] They were originally the 'habitual' enemies of the Aryans and later evolved into demons in the legends while the Devas developed into gods.[lxiv] However, the Iranians took the opposite view: The Ahuras became gods while the Devas became demons.[lxiv] Historians recognize the Assuras as being references to the Assyrians.[lxiv] These legends arose due to Assyrian brutality against various Aryan peoples of the region such as the Hittites, Kassites and Mitanni. Many of these peoples were forced to flee into northwest India and join isolated tribes located there. One researcher relates it thus:
The Assyrians. . .were distinguished by their clubs and maces, and brazen helmets. . .whereby in E. Indian traditions we see them in the Minotaur or Bull-headed Asura.[lxiv]
The Assuras were first regarded as elder brothers of the Aryan Hittites but later as their enemies.[lxiv] The strange relationship between the Assyrians and the Hittites will be dealt with later in this book. Previous to the flight of many Hittites into north- west India, the early scribes and priests of India mention an invasion culminating in the famous battle of Kur-uksetra in Ca. 1650-49 B.C. Who were those responsible for the attack upon the Indian King of Mogadha? The Asuras, also known as the Dasyus and Daityas.[lxiv] These terms also later became a title for demons of darkness and were even applied to many Veddoids (some of whom were formerly Assyrian slaves). The migration of many Mongoloid peoples out of India and into Burma in Ca. 1649 B.C., was a natural consequence of this war.[lxiv] To this day in India, in the Chola-Nagpur Forest, dwells a little-known tribe called the Assurs or Asura.[lxiv] They appear to be a blend of both Mongoloid and Australoid.[lxiv] They are also "hereditary iron-workers"[lxiv] learning this from their Assyrian task-masters. They appear to have been associated with the Assyrians for some time,[lxiv] and may be a part of the black peoples which the master-race minded Assyrians once expelled to India.[lxiv]
The Assyrians, much like the Nazis of World War Two, had a proclivity towards separating and relocation of nations and races. For example, King Taharka, a black leader of Egypt, was driven from the throne by the Assyrians.[lxiv] After centuries of barbarity and sheer misery, the peoples of the Near East, with the help of the Scythians, ganged up on Assyria and defeated her, destroying the capital city, Nineveh, in 612 B.C. (Nahum 2:7). Historians claim that they turned the whole area of Assyria into "an empty land,"[lxiv] sending the inhabitants packing, with the Assyrians disappearing from view.[lxiv] Oppenheim states that the entire Mesopotamian civilization disappeared.[lxiv] What then became of the Assyrians?[lxiv] What little may have remained was destroyed by Hulagu, a grandson of Ghengis Khan, who conquered Baghdad in 1258 A.D. He totally devastated what remained of the ancient lands of Assyria and Babylonia, including the artifacts, cities and irrigation systems.
What happened to the Assyrians was sweet revenge for the nations that suffered under their heel for so long. Fairweather writes that mass-movements of hundreds of thousands of people is not out-of-the-ordinary. These masses are attracted to something or are in flight, something which should not be surprising to us even in this century: note the millions deported by Stalin, the millions on the move in central Europe at the end of World War Two, or the enormous population swaps between India and Pakistan in the late 1940s. He wrote:
"It was a favourite principle of Eastern despotism to remove large numbers of people from their native settlements to some region within the domains of the conquering power ... "[lxiv].
For example, when the Hyksos were expelled from Egypt, at least 200,040 households with their possessions left Egypt and traveled over the desert to Syria! [lxiv] That could have numbered a million people. An even greater figure may be calculated for the Exodus.
What evidence can we thus find for the migrations of the Assyrians? What is their modern location today?

MIGRATIONS INTO CENTRAL EUROPE
Let us now trace the remarkable migrations of the Assyrian hordes. Of racial migrations and their causes, Haddon notes:
It is probable that a migration induced by an attraction is rare as compared with that produced by an expulsion, for as a rule people are loth to leave their fatherland, and it usually requires the double set of circumstances to uproot them.[lxiv]
He further states that the
. . .evidences for migrations are to be sought mainly in the physical characters of peoples, their artifacts, customs, folk-tales and language.[lxiv]
With these principles in mind let us consider what became of those fearsome Assyrians, who were forced to leave their fatherland the Assyrian Reich.
THE SCYTHIANS THE MISSING LINK!
Historians understand that the Scythians poured over the Caucasus, united with the Medes, and destroyed both the Vannic kingdom and the cruel Assyrian Empire.[lxiv] Thus after 612 B.C. the Assyrians began to disappear from view. Perhaps many of the Assyrians were taken into captivity by the Scythians a collection of many tribes, including Mongoloids. Regardless, they evidently were forced to seek a life elsewhere. With the Assyrians were the Elamites in the Sarmatian hordes.[lxiv] The Sarmatians were also known as Surmatai or Syrmatai.[lxiv] Matai would have included Madai, the Medes and Elamites (this is covered in my book True Origins of the Peoples of Eastern Europe); and Syr the Assyrians for Asshur may be rendered Assyr,[lxiv] and we know that Syria is named after Assyria. Of the Sarmatians and Scythian conglomerations, historian Filmer writes:
As the Sarmatian tribes moved into 'Scythia' in South Russia, there was a tendency to confuse them with Scythians, but the Romans introduced the name 'German' for the genuine Scythian (germanus being Latin for genuine) and, except in outlying parts, the name Scythian was dropped in favour of Germans and Sarmatians.[lxiv]
In other words, many of the Scythians became known as Germans. Let us now observe some of the incredible similarities between the Assyrians and the Scythians. First of all, it has been long recognized that the Scythians "developed a strictly military organization."[lxiv] How similar to Assyria! Rostovtzeff explains that the Scythians adopted various Assyrian art forms, especially vases.[lxiv] He labels their art style as "Scytho-Assyrian".[lxiv] He states that the Scythian military standards and sceptres were almost identical to those of the Assyrians[lxiv] as were their costumes, funeral outfits and armour for "their Neo-Assyrian and Ponto-Cappadocian style can be recognized at a glance" and the inlay of their artforms "was invented somewhere in Babylonia or Assyria."[lxiv]
Further, the Scythians wielded Assyrian axes[lxiv] and horse trappings.[lxiv] Of the Scythian sword he notes:
The only parallels, as far as I know, are the swords of the second Assyrian empire. . .and some Chinese swords."[lxiv]
Of course, for the Scythians in the west were composed of tribes such as the Assyrians, while those in the east of Mongoloids. He terms the animal-style of the various tribes of southern Russia as "Assyro-Persian".[lxiv]
...thereby connected with the late Assyrian animal style. It bears marks of Assyrian influence.[lxiv] ... Objects in the form of beasts' heads are common in Scythia. . .[like] the Assyro-Babylonian repertory.[lxiv]
Another researcher states:
In 1947 evidence was discovered at Zinige, about seventy miles south of Lake Urmia, of the close relationship between the Assyrians and Scythians. A royal treasure dating to the end of the seventh century B.C. was unearthed. Among the items uncovered, some were of Assyrian origin, some Scythian and others a mixture of the two cultures. It is believed that at least some of the treasure consisted of wedding presents given on the occasion of the wedding between a Scythian king and an Assyrian princess.[lxiv]
Rice reveals that the figurines of the Scythian gods were similar to those of Elam, Babylonia and Mesopotamia.[lxiv] Their horses' headdresses were "somewhat similar" to that of the Assyrians[lxiv] as was their knotting of their horses' tails, their raised forelocks and clipped manes, arched necks, saddle-clothes and the wide breast bands. All of these "are Assyrian features."[lxiv] Amongst their amulets were Assyrian cylindrical seals,[lxiv] art forms like that of Assyria[lxiv] while many of the swords were Persian in shape and decorated with Assyrian elements.[lxiv] Sulimirksi's observations are in agreement with Rice and Rostovtzeff. He notes that the Scythian armored cavalry was identical with that of ancient Assyria.[lxiv] The Scytho-Sarmatians abundantly used the horse trappings of the Assyrians with their embossed geometrical and animal style decorations[lxiv] and the upper-garments of their troops were almost identical to that of the Assyrians[lxiv] as was their jewelry.[lxiv] I thought it important to summarize the findings of Rostovtzeff, Rice and Sulimirski. Could the vast similarities between the Scythians (after their return to the Russian steppes following their conquest of the Assyrians) and the Assyrians be mere coincidence? Of course not, for the Assyrians became part of those terrible hordes.
Their military prowess and superiority would have led them to eventually have taken over leadership of the Scythian conglomerate. Perhaps some of the Assyrians became known as the Royal Scythians which were found north of the Crimea[lxiv]. Herodotus wrote that the Royal Scythians were
the largest and bravest of the Scythian tribes, which looks upon all the other tribes in the light of slaves.[lxiv]
Some historians even trace the Royal Scythians from the southern shores of the Caspian Sea to the Ukraine[lxiv]. An observation of some of the Scythian tribal names should be able to throw even further light on the Assyrian hordes in the Russian steppes. We have seen reference to the Syrmatae in southern Russia by Pliny.[lxiv] Those Syrmatae at one time dwelt along the Don which was known as the Syr Darya.[lxiv] A related tribe was the Essedones.[lxiv] Other tribes included the Sardi, Siraei,[lxiv] Issedonians, a cruel people,[lxiv] the Assi,[lxiv] also spelled Asi or Iasi and who may be derived from the barbaric Issedonians.[lxiv] Pliny refers to the "Thussegetse and Tyrcae" inhabiting an area along the Don River.[lxiv] He classifies them, along with other tribes such as the Issi, as Scythians.[lxiv] In his Histories[lxiv] Herodotus claims that the Gelones, Agathysians and Scythians were related. The Thyssagetae were in southern Russia[lxiv] and related to them were the Ircae, east of the Urals, who were also Scythians.[lxiv] Another name for them was Agathysi[lxiv] who were definitely Scythians.[lxiv]
Pliny states that a large island in the Dniester was occupied by the Tyragetae[lxiv] and that between the Dnieper and Sea of Azov dwelt "the Geloni, Thyssagetae, Budini, Basilidae and Agathyrsi, the last a dark-haired people."[lxiv] The Agathysi claimed descent from Agathyrsus (or Agathirsus), whose brothers were Gelonus and Scythes,[lxiv] Tuscus, Guths and Peucinger. In the German King Lists Gampar is their father and the sixth generation from Tuitsch who is Shem.[lxiv] This mysterious King List will be further elaborated upon later in this chapter. The Agathyrsians, Gelonians and Scythians also claimed descent from the god Herakles, according to Scythian tradition.[lxiv] Once again, allow the German King Lists to explain: Herakles or Hercules was originally known as Alman (or Allmann or Altman), the 10th generation from Tuitsch and great-great grandson of Gampar.
Is it any wonder then that Subarian traditions maintains that the Agathyrsians originated in Assur?[lxiv] Note the names Thussegetae, Tyrcae, Thyssagetae and Aga-thyrsi prominent names among the Scythian tribes. What does Tyr or Thyr mean? We have seen that Syr or Assyr is another rendition of Assur![lxiv] These Scythian tribes clearly indicate their Assyrian heritage.
Tyr, Thus, Thyr and Thys were various renditions of Thor, god of war and thunder. He was famous for his hammer, the Swastika. I have before me a copy of David Wilson's (ed.) work, The Northern World. On Page 21 a reprint of a portrait of this god may be found, with the swastika prominently portrayed on his belt. His name is Thuner in Old Low German, Donar in Old High German, and his name may be found in "Thursday" in English, "Donnerstag" in German, "Donderdag" in Dutch and "Torsdag" in both Swedish and Danish.[lxiv]
We saw at the outset of Chapter Two that the Persians called Assyria "Athursa"[lxiv] and that after its fall, the land was still known as Athura. No doubt then that these tribes originated in Assyria. Surely, all this cannot be coincidence? Pliny refers to other Scythian tribes:
At the river Carcinites begins the Crimea. . .The population includes 30 tribes. . .the Orgocyni, Characeni, Assyrani, Stactari, Acisalitae and Caliordi, and the Scythotauri. . .and. . .Satauci Scythians.[lxiv]
Note: one of the Scythian tribes was called the Assyrani! YES - THE ASSYRIANS!!!! Could anything be more blatant? Pliny also refers to the Bastiennae German tribe as living north of the Danube as part of the Scythian hordes.[lxiv] Lempriere's famous Classical Dictionary states: "Bastarnae or Basternae, a people of European Sarmatia;"[lxiv] "Peucini, a nation of Germany, called also Basternae."[lxiv] Here we have direct linkage between the Scythians and the Germans. John Baker in his absorbing work Race, shows a photograph of a bust of a warrior of the infamous Bastarnae Scythian tribes which Baker also labels "Germanen" which originally occupied the area between the Black Sea and Carpathian Mountains.[lxiv] His hair-style is similar to that of the ancient Assyrians![lxiv]
The Scythians certainly spread into Central Europe where all scholars claim "they completely disappeared from history."[lxiv] What became of them? Where are the Scythian-Assyrian peoples today? What are their modern identities? Allow Pliny to give us a clue:
The name Scythians has spread in every direction, as far as the Sarmatae and the Germans.[lxiv]
Chamber's Encyclopedia has this to say:
Herodotus assigned to them [the Scythians] the country between the Don and Dniester, but their tombs show that they once held the region on the Kuban River east of the Sea of Azov, and that they penetrated far to the west. A Scythian burial was found. . . just outside of Berlin.[lxiv]
Rostovtzeff in his excellent work, Iranians and Greeks in South Russia, previously referred to, states that the Scythian costumes were very similar to those of the Germans.[lxiv] With regard to the decoration of their tombs:
All these shapes belong to the Oriental repertory: exactly similar plaques have been found in Assyria.[lxiv]
None of this was due to trade or "cultural drift" alone. They were due to the migration of the Assyrians into the southern Russian steppes and thence into Central Europe. We know too that the Scythians reached into Germany, especially Bavaria[lxiv] and that their soothsayers had practices much like that of the Germans of the Middle Ages.[lxiv] The Scythian art-forms are to be found prominently in Austria and in the Rhineland[lxiv] for the "Scytho-Sarmatian influence was particularly marked in Central Europe", claims researcher T. T. Rice.[lxiv] Why so marked in Central Europe? For that is where they settled! Central Europe? Southern Germany, Austria, much of Switzerland and northeastern France! Here may be found the modern descendants of Assur!!!
In terms of ethnic identity or physical anthropology, the western Scythians were white, not yellow-brown as were those in the east.[lxiv] Their racial type, brachycephalic head-form and features are identical to those of the peoples of Central Europe declared the most eminent anthropologist of his day, Carlton Coon.[lxiv] The description that Herodotus gives of them, as well as skeletal remains, clearly reveal them to be neither fair Nordics nor olive, curly haired Mediterranoids, but Central Europeans.[lxiv] Many even had reddish hair and blue eyes[lxiv] while others were blond.[lxiv]
McGovern concurs, his massive researches revealing that the west European Alpines inhabited central Asia originally where the Scythians and Sarmatians arose, adding that they were ethnically related.[lxiv], although often in bitter conflict. Historian Sharon Turner also wrote that certain nations of Europe descend from the Scythians.[lxiv]
A SMALL CENTRAL ASIAN ELEMENT IN GERMANY?
One branch of the Scythians were the Huns. Apparently, "Hun" means "ten", indicating that possibly ten different nations comprised the Huns. Speaking of the Scythians, Tacitus wrote thus of them in his Histories:
Those vast Scythian peoples whom all our ancestors, and even the famous Alexander the Great, had feared and avoided according to the testimony of Pompeius, Trogus and Cornelius. . .I mean the Alans [a Nordic people] and the Huns, and the Goths [Nordic types].[lxiv]
Obviously, then, the Huns were regarded as part of the Scythian hordes.[lxiv] Ammianus Marcellinus mentions that the Huns dealt in "terrific slaughter" and were "the most terrible of warriors" "like unreasoning beasts. . .untamed men."[lxiv] It was they against whom the Chinese built their Great Wall beginning 214 B.C. They conquered a part of China, some intermarrying with the Chinese.
After their expulsion they trekked to the region east of the Caspian Sea and into the Russian steppes. In Roman times they settled in what we call Hungary today. Although a few of the western Huns were Mongoloid, most were clearly white.[lxiv] Amongst their ranks were even Nordic types who had green or blue eyes and red hair[lxiv] which was apparent even among the Scythians.[lxiv] Like the Tochari Scythians[lxiv] the Huns reached China, and like the Scythians were driven out of China, migrating towards Europe.[lxiv] Is it a coincidence that the Scythians in the east were known as the Tehuni[lxiv] (Whilst in northern China, the Chinese adopted their art-style[lxiv] which was clearly Assyrian[lxiv]). As they migrated westward,
In many cases, the Huns took the overrun Germanic tribes along with them, the latter often becoming cavalry warriors and adopting the Hun culture. In other cases, the fleeing Germanic tribes were forced to seek refuge close to the border of the Roman Empire.[lxiv]
Todd in his book The Barbarians explains that although the Germans are not the Huns, nevertheless their history is very much bound up together.[lxiv] With them were the Alans, Gepids, Slavs and Goths.[lxiv] He adds:
Like all nomadic peoples they are extremely difficult to track down by the usual techniques of archaeology.[lxiv]
However, the Huns managed to unite much of Europe into a confederation of states, comprising all Europe south of Scandinavia, but north of the Roman Empire. Apparently, no one yet knows how this happened or what political genius was employed to organize this vast territory. Only a people of great cunning and organizational skills could have managed to pull off a "coup" as gigantic as this one. Yet they gave their allegiance to these Huns, as if this were a means of uniting against Rome. Of this strange phenomenon, Hertz wrote:
The Tauern Range in the Austrian Alps may be connected with a Mount Tabor in Palestine, with Tabriz, Taurus, etc. . .Especially in the Alps, geographical names often seem to point towards Asia, eg, Carinthia, Carniola, Tyrol, Styria, Lech, Tegernsee, Enns, Gastein, Moll, Sill, Rhein, Brixen, Bregenz, and numerous others.[lxiv]
. . .Most of the Teutonic tribes, the Ostrogoths, Gepids, Quads, Marcomanni, Suevi, Thuringians, Ripurian Franks, were. . . forced. . .to. . .go to war for their overlords [the Huns].[lxiv]
Then came the Avars, also an Ural-Altaic tribe, whom historical sources identify with the Huns. Their rule extended over Lower Austria, Styria, Carinthia. . .at times even up to Middle and North Germany, hordes of Avars settled in Upper Franconia where their physical traits are still said to be recognised in the population (Wirth).[lxiv]
When the Huns migrated westward, they set themselves over the Turkic Khazars.[lxiv] Undoubtedly, some intermarriage between the two stocks occurred. When the Khazar empire started coming apart due to Russian attacks, the Magyars decided to move on. There were seven major tribes of Magyar Huns and three tribes of Khazars. They called themselves the "On Ogar" meaning the "Ten Arrows." After settling in modern-day Hungary, many of the western Khazars left the Magyars and migrated westwards, finally "disappearing."
However, where did those semi-Mongoloid elements "disappear" to? Tiny traces of Turkic Mongoloid are still noticeable in parts of southern and eastern Germany to both the traveller and especially anthropologists. These are those with golden skins, jet black hair and little body hair. However, they comprise a tiny fraction of the German population and the vast majority of Germans are not mixed:
In the Germans there is a. . .Eurasiatic element which includes the Slavonic, and genes from the Mongoloid peoples have crept in via Russia.[lxiv]
This may have led to certain Jewish traditions of the Middle Ages which labelled Germany as Gomer and sometimes Togarmah, for the Khazars' own traditions claimed descent from the latter.[lxiv] Many Bible scholars still assume that Germany is Gomer[lxiv] but it is philologically impossible to derive "Germany" from Gomer. It is the purpose of this book to prove these scholars incorrect. How many are willing to change when proven wrong? Precious few, for such knowledge would force them to change their erroneous prophetic utterances. One great man who had both the guts and humility to change was Herbert W. Armstrong. He originally held the view that the Germans descended from Gomer.[lxiv] Yet in the early 1950's, he changed to accept the proven Assyrian origins of the Gemans.
Undoubtedly, however, some of the darker-skinned Bavarians are either a western branch of Gomer or mixed remnants of Huns with Assyrians. In short, one may describe the Germans as a highly civilized, incredibly capable people who also have great physical strength. Unfortunately they, like all peoples, have a darker side to their natures, not revealing their true mentality until war erupts.
THE CELTIC ENIGMA
Most of the peoples of southern Germany and Central Europe are labelled "Celtic" or "Keltic" by historians. Why is this so? "Surely," ome would say, "only the Cornish, Welsh, Scots and Irish are Celts." As we shall see, these are indeed the true, original Celts, racially speaking. However the peoples of Central Europe were also known as Celts. Because the Central Europeans dwelt in the same basic territory where the British Celts once settled, they too became known as Celts, and are comprised of two totally separate sub-racial stocks. As a result, confesses Professor Carleton Coon, confusion has arisen in the minds of researchers.[lxiv] Researcher Raymond McNair concurs:
There is every reason to believe that the original Celts. . .were primarily of "Nordic" racial type. . .This name "Celt" has certainly been applied in later times to some Alpine types.[lxiv]
Those Alpine Kelts" or Gauls were so impressed by the Nordic Kelts that they liked to relate themselves to these Nordics by dyeing their hair to make it look like that of the Nordic Kelts![lxiv] It was the Romans who confused the matter by calling both types Galli" or Kelts. The central European Alpines (Celts) were known to historians as Kelto-Skuthai or Kelto-Scythians.[lxiv] Taylor, for example, speaks of the central Europeans as "Celto-Slavic."[lxiv] In his remarkable work, Origines Celticae, Dr. Guest wrote:
It would appear, then, that as early as the third century B.C. there were certain races called Germani who settled north of the Alps and the upper district drained by the Saone. . .These Germani were undoubtedly Celts.[lxiv]
According to Dr. Guest, the Keltic Kimbri migrated form Pontic Scythia (a region just north of the Black Sea) where the Assyrians were located as we have seen.[lxiv] The famous A Smaller Classical Dictionary, states:
The Germans were a branch of the great Indo-Germanic race, who, along with the Celts, migrated into Europe from the Caucasus and the countries around the Black and Caspian Seas.[lxiv]
It is not surprising, then, when we learn that many of those Celtic tribes trace their origins back to Armenia.[lxiv] The Celtae were also known as Cimmerians or Cimbri (a tribe of Germany),[lxiv] Gimirri, Kymry, Keltoi or Kimmerians. Certain of these may have been a western mutation of Gomer as we have seen, for Gimirri may also be derived from Gomer. The place names of Bohemia and Bologna, for instance, preserve the German Celtic tribal name of the Boii.[lxiv] The Helvetti and other south German tribes in the Alpine regions and along the Danube were also recorded as Celts.[lxiv] The Keltic Marcomanni later became known as the Bavarians.[lxiv] One Celtic tribe was known as the Germara according to Dr. Dinan.[lxiv] Could anything be plainer? The southern German tribes are the direct descendants of the "Celto-Slavs." Dr. Wylie actually connects these Celts with the Scythians.[lxiv] A more modern work, The Barbarians, has this to say of the early Greek writers:
For those writers the northern barbarians were divided into Celts in the north-west and Skyths, Scythians in the north-east.[lxiv]
As we have seen, the Central European Celts were definitely the western push of the Scythians. However, the Romans confused the issue, labelling the Germans as Gauls (Celts). Strabo wrote of this problem:
The Romans assigned to them the name 'Germani', as though they wished to indicate thereby that they were 'genuine' Galatae, for in the language of the Romans 'germani' means 'genuine'.[lxiv]
In a footnote, the editor writes:
So also Julius Caesar, Tacitus, Pliny and the ancient writers in general regarded the Germans as Celts (Gauls). Dr. Richard Braungart has recently published a large work in two volumes in which he ably defends his thesis that the Boii, Vindelici, Rhaeti, Norici, Taurisci, and other tribes. . .were originally not Celts, but Germans, and, in all probability, the ancestors of all Germans.
In conclusion, one can only state that the descendants of the Germans may be found among the Celts the western branch of the Scythians.
HISTORY AND TRADITION ATTEST TO GERMAN ORIGINS
The famous Ripley, like so many historians, thinks that
We know nothing of the German tribes until about 100 B.C. Suddenly they loom up in the world; aggressive foes of the Romans.[lxiv]
All they do seem to know is that the Germans have an eastern origin:
When Tacitus informs us that the first act of a German on rising was ablution, it will be conceded that his habit was not acquired in the cold climate of Germany but must have been of Eastern origin; as were the loose flowing robe, the long and braided hair, tied in a knot at the top of the head.[lxiv] (How similar to the Assyrian hairstyle).[lxiv]
The name Ghar-men, whence the name German may be derived, is also of central Asiatic origin.[lxiv] This may also be rendered "Gar-men", "Khar-people", "Kari" or "Cari."[lxiv] We had seen in the previous section where Smith in his A Smaller Classical Dictionary states that the Germans "migrated into Europe from the Caucasus and the countries around the Black and Caspian Seas."[lxiv] Scylax, writing in about 550 B.C., noted that "the coast of the Black Sea. . . is called Assyria."[lxiv] Diodorus of Sicily, writing in the first century B.C. reveals just why the coasts of the Black Sea were called Assyria:
Many conquered peoples were removed to other homes, and two of these became very great colonies: the one was composed of Assyrians and was removed to the land between Paphlagonia and Pontus. . .[lxiv]
Paphlagonia and Pontus were provinces in Northern Asia Minor bordering on the Black Sea. Centuries later, when the Celto-Scythian-Hun hordes were invading Europe, Jerome wrote this of them:
Savage tribes in countless numbers have over-run all parts of Gaul. The whole country between the Rhine and the ocean, has been laid waste by hordes of Quadi, Vandals, Sarmatians, Alans, Gepids, Herules, Saxons, Burgundians, Allemanni and Alas! for the Commonweal! even Pannonians. For 'Assur also is joined with them'. The once noble city of Moguntiacum has been captured and destroyed.[lxiv]
In the following section he calls them "the barbarians." But, what is so interesting is that he likens these tribes sweeping in from Panonia to the Assyrians! The likeness was too close to ignore. However, unbeknown to Jerome, the Assyrians had colonies in Europe soon after the tower of Babel incident. They and others are called, collectively, the "Battle-Axe" or "Corded People" in archaeology and history works. They came up from southern Russia, finally settling in southern and central Germany (Ca. 2000-1900 B.C.) after the fall of the Akkadian Empire. They are found on both sides of the Caucasus and Black Sea.[lxiv]
In addition, a Franconian, Celtis-Pickel (a translator of Tacitus), stated that the Germans were anciently originally in Scythia (the Russian steppes), by the Black Sea.[lxiv] How did the Germans spread from the Black Sea region into central Europe? One researcher explains that the western Scythians lived in covered wheeled wagons, constructed as houses of wicker-work on chariots.[lxiv] Their clothing included belts, baggy trousers and pointed caps.[lxiv] Gamkrelidze and Ivanov[lxiv] explain that the wheeled wagons
. . .spread from the place of their inception in the Near East to the Volga-Ural region, the region north of the Black Sea, the Balkans, and central Europe.
By the time the Assyrians reached Central Europe, their language had drastically changed. However, the peoples of southern Germany and Switzerland still have traces of ancient Asiatic-Etruscan (Near Eastern) in their tongue.[lxiv] As the Assyrians settled in beautiful Germany, their reputation as warriors spread. Lempriere clearly illustrates this point:
Germania, an extensive country of Europe, at the east of Gaul. Its inhabitants were warlike, fierce, and uncivilized, and proved watchful and indefatigable opposers of the power of Rome. Caesar first entered their country, but he rather checked their fury than conquered them. The ancient Germans were very superstitious, and, in many respects, their religion was the same as that of their neighbours the Gauls; whence some have concluded that these two nations were of the same origin...they built no temples to their gods, but paid great attention to the heroes and warriors which their country had produced.[lxiv]
One of their goddesses, the Queen of Heaven, was Ostern, Ostara or Eastre. In ancient Assyria they called the Queen of Heaven Ishtar. Yes, the names of some of their gods and goddesses were carried with them into Central Europe. Note my previous discussion on Thor. We have also seen how the name Ashur has many forms such as Asura or Ashira.[lxiv] The Indian form and title of the national god of Assyria was Saha, meaning "the mighty", "overcoming" or "victorious" in the Sanskrit. The Gothic Cognate (i.e. a word having the same source or origin) is "sig" or "sigis"; the German is "sieg" which also means "victory" and was written by the mysterious Axe sign.[lxiv] This is the origin of the warlike "sieg und heil" ("victory and salvation") salute used for centuries by the Germans before the Nazis. A further deity of Germany was Thuisto,[lxiv] Tuisto or Tuisco from whom they claimed descent.[lxiv] Who was this god? In 1605 a publication appeared in England with the title of Restitution of Decayed Intelligence in Antiquities. It had this to say of the origin of the name Deutsche:
Tuysco, the most ancient and peculiar god of all the Germans...of this Tuisco, the first and chiefest man of many among the Germans, and after whom they do call themselves Tuytshen, that is dutsches and duytsch people, I have already spoken.[lxiv]
We see then, that Deutsch and Deutschland is directly derived from Tuisto or Tuitsch. One of the Assyrian kings was named Teutamus[lxiv] but whether there is any connection to the name Tuitsch, is not known (see Chart 3: Kings of Nineveh). Remember the reference to the Assyrians by the Indians in the previous chapter? They called them Daityas or Deutsche! As to who this Deutsch or Tuitsch was, we must turn to the German King list as revealed in the Bavarian Chronicle The list extends to some thirty-nine kings.[lxiv] The first twelve will suffice for the purpose of this study.
Chart 6: Early Kings of Germany:
2. Mannus or Ninus
4. Ausstaeb (Istaevon)
7. Gampar - His daughter gave birth to
Tuscus, Schyth, Argatyrsas,
Peucinger and Guths
11. Alman Bavarians - Had many sons:
Norein, father of the Bavarians; Haun
father of the German Huns and lived with
his brothers Schyter and Glan; Helves,
father of the Helvetii in Switzerland;
Mied and Math ancestors of the Mediomatrices
in Alsace; Theur went to foreign lands; Baier
Here we find that Tuitsch is either Shem or Assur! According to some the name Teutes or Deutsch means holiness or God[lxiv] - perhaps they claimed descent from God! The southern Germans claim them as their forefathers, not Gomer. German history also relates how their oldest city, Trier, was founded by a son of Ninus. Bihl in his In Deutschen Landen explains this:
The inhabitants of Trier maintain that their city is the oldest in all Europe. Trier was founded by Trebeta, a son of the famous Assyrian king Ninus. In fact, one finds. . .in Trier the inscription reading 'Trier existed for 1300 years before Rome was built.'[lxiv]
A very old painting depicting the legend of Trebeta and Ninus and which tells the story of an ancient migration of Assyrians to Germany was kept in the conference room of the Burgermeister (mayor) of Trier. The following is from the Museum text:
Trier is such an old city that it was begun to be built in the neighbourhood of Germany 2098 years before Christ in Abraham's time by Trebeta, the brother [or son?] of King Ninus. Trebeta had been driven out of Assyria by Queen Semiramis. After the great Ninus' death, Semiramis became suspicious and hostile toward Trebeta. He then left the kingdom with a great multitude of Assyrians and came to the area of Belgia Galica, not far from the Rhine, a very fertile region. There Trebeta laid the foundations of this city and called it Treverum [Trier] after himself.
This is what is found actually written on the picture itself in 1559:
Semiramis, a queen of the Assyrian Kingdom, the wife of Ninus. All the countries and the great number of subjects she had were not enough for her. The world was simply too small for her. In addition, as the writings tell us, her stepson Trebeta was chased out of the kingdom. He left his father's land and built Trier.
A final Bavarian tradition should be stated here. One of their oldest traditions categorically claims that they came into Central Europe from the Armenian region, by the Black Sea.[lxiv] This is where the Scythians retreated after conquering Assyria, perhaps taking many Assyrians with them. The Black Sea region is where the Assyrani are mentioned by Pliny and the coasts of which was named Assyria, according to Scylax. There we have the ultimate proofs of whom the modern Assyrians are the peoples of southern Germany and other parts of Central Europe.

THE HITTITE EMPIRE
What have the Aryan Hittites to do with the Assyrians? Where are the descendants of the ancient Hittites today and what is their connection with modern Germany? In this chapter, we shall explore their modern identity.
THE ANCIENT HITTITES
Early in Scripture, mention is made of the Hittite tribes dwelling in central Palestine (Genesis 15:19-21 23:3-7, 10, 16-20; 27:46; Numbers 13:29; Deuteronomy 7:1-5; 20:17; Joshua 3:10). According to the mysterious but incredible Table of Nations, these Hittites were brown descendants of Heth, son of Canaan (Genesis 10:15).
Later, the Bible refers to the Hittite Empire, as a major power which arose where many of the descendants of Heth migrated to (I Samuel 26:6; II Samuel 11:2-6; I Kings 10:29; II Kings 7:6). These were white Nordic types who assumed the name 'Hittites' from the original inhabitants.[lxiv] In Wiseman's extremely useful book Peoples of Old Testament Times we find the following important quote:
Every treatise on the Hittites should begin with a warning to the reader about the pitfalls posed by the term 'Hittite', which often seems to connote something quite different to each scholar. It is possible to identify at least four distinct ethnic groups in antiquity to whom the name 'Hittite'. . .has at some time been applied.[lxiv]
Two possible reasons for the Nordics who invaded Asia Minor having been called 'Hittites' may be assumed: 1. They occupied the same territory as the sons of Heth; 2. They were a warrior nation like the original Hittites. In addition to the Nordics and the original Hittites we find that a small Mongoloid tribe known as the Khittites also dwelt in Asia Minor. The Armenians were also known as Hittites and all historians refer to their conquest by the Nordics who set themselves up as a ruling class over the other tribes roundabout. Professor Waddell spells the name of the Nordics as Khatti or Catti.[lxiv] Who were these Nordic Hittites? While scholars generally agree that they migrated down from a region north of the Black Sea (where many descendants of Arphaxad had migrated to), some claim they came down from the Caucasus while others dispute this, stating that they came into Asia Minor from south-east Europe, crossing over the Bosphorus.[lxiv]
No one really knows their original name, yet clues remain which appear to suggest that their original name was Nesites, Nestians, Hestians or Aestians. One of their major cities was Nesa and their language was called Nesian, Nasili or Nesumnili.[lxiv] What historians do know with certainty is that their migration into Asia Minor was followed by a period of few records. Come 1460 B.C., the Hittite Empire arose to become one of the most amazing empires of ancient times. More on that in the following section. From whom sprang the Nordic Hittites? What of their ethno-genesis? Historians do not tell us, but circumstantial evidence points to Asshurim. This will become apparent as we progress through this chapter. Asshurim sometimes spelled Ashuram[lxiv] was a descendant of Abraham:
Then again Abraham took a wife, and her name was Keturah. And she bare him Zimram, and Jokshan, and Medan and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah.
And Jokshan begat Sheba, and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan were Asshurim and Letushim and Leummim. . .
And Abraham gave all that he had unto Isaac.
But unto the sons of the concubines, which Abraham had, Abraham gave gifts, and sent them away from Isaac his son, while he yet lived, eastward, unto the east country (Genesis 25:1-3, 5-6).
They were sent east of Palestine, not south into Saudi Arabia, as many speculate. From there they would have migrated north of the Caucasus with other descendants of Arphaxad, becoming known as the Aryans (White Indo-Europeans). The name Asshurim may be due to the following reasons:
1. Asshurim had married an Assyrian wife.
2. The Asshurim were destined to later associate with the Assyrians because of their similar natures (indeed, Hatti means 'mean of war', as does Car-men or German!)
3. The latter portion of his name may be spelled "huram". "Hur" means white; "ur" means "to shine", "be bright" or "light"; "Aram" or "Uram" means to be "high" or "noble". This also signifies an association with various descendants of Aram. This will be fully explained in a future work in this serties.
According to Professor Waddell, the Hittites were also known as the Ari, meaning 'noble'[lxiv] for they were Aryans. Hur, as we have seen, means to be white - oftentimes with blonde hair. A district in Asia Minor where also the Mitanni settled, was known as the "land of Rashu"[lxiv] meaning 'blonde'. Bear also the names Hestians, Aestians, Hur and Rusi in mind as we shall meet them again later in this chapter.
OVERVIEW OF HITTITE HISTORY
In terms of human biology and physical anthropology, the Hittites were an Aryan or Indo-European type people.[lxiv] While dolicocephalicy was dominant,[lxiv] meso- and brachycephalicy were also prevalent. These latter may have been other descendants of Abraham such as Letushim and also the subservient Armenians. To illustrate this point, their most famous king was Suppiluliumas, which means 'he of the golden hair' who destroyed and absorbed the kingdom of the Mitanni (Ca. 1360 B.C.). The ruling class elite was definitely an Aryan-Nordic people[lxiv] who were race conscious, considering themselves to be superior to the conquered masses. Their art even goes so far as to place emphasis on their head shape differences in comparison to other tribes in Anatolia.[lxiv] Their kings and their gods bore Aryan Vedic names[lxiv] and they worshipped the Aryan god of war and thunder, called Indra by the Aryans of north-west India.
As they began to settle in southern Asia Minor (and eventually northern Syria) they became known as 'White Syrians' (Greek 'leucosyri').[lxiv] Pliny, for instance, writes:
by 'Syrians', however, he [Pylaemenes] means the 'Capadocians', and in fact they are still known today called 'White Syrians'.[lxiv]
Earlier he wrote that
. . .the Eneti first set forth from the country of the White Syrians.[lxiv]
However, those which did not migrate into northwest India or Europe, but remained in Anatolia, mixed with the Semites. Von Luschan writes of them:
I feel sure that the modern admixture of European blood is in no way responsible for the great number of light-coloured people also in the interior of Asia Minor and Syria.[lxiv]
As in ancient Greece a number of individuals seem to have been fair, with blue eyes.[lxiv]
Yes, mixed remnants of Hittites and related tribes may still be witnessed in Asia Minor; of course, their blood constitutes only a small percentage of the mixed peoples of that region.
However, being a tall, fair, dolicocephalic race, they have been closely identified with the Mitanni and Kassites who were within the bounds of their empire for a time and who were of the same racial stock. Bashan identifies them directly to the Baltic, early Greek, Teutonic, Celtic and Germanic peoples.[lxiv]
Their confederates at one time, the Mitanni,[lxiv] ruled Assyria for a period until being overthrown. This may have facilitated Assyrian/Hittite admixture for in some ways they had a close relationship with the Assyrians. In fact the first historians hear of the Hittites, is from the documents of the old Assyrian trading colonies in Cappadocia. These Hittites of whom the Assyrians speak may have been Aryan descendants of Arphaxad ruling over the sons of Heth prior to the invasions of the Nesa en masse. They may have intermarried with the Assyrian commercial colonists in that area.[lxiv] Researchers know too that the Assyrian language largely influenced the Hittite tongue.[lxiv] Even the old Assyrian type of cuneiform writing was, from all the evidence, "taken over by the Hittites for the purpose of economic accounting."[lxiv] They formed a very tightly knit system of government,[lxiv] somewhat similar to that developed by the Assyrians. Interestingly enough, the Romans, who may have realized this, called the Hittite capital city 'Ninus Vetus', meaning 'The Old Nineveh' (Nineveh was the Assyrian capital).[lxiv] So inter-related had the Assyrians and Hittites become, that according to Luckenbill's Ancient Records of Assyria and Babylonia, one Assyrian document states thus of the Hittites: "As Assyrians I counted them."[lxiv]
One of their cities was named Hattusas, after them. Another of their cities was "the city of Kussar"[lxiv] and their earliest kings became known as the "kings of Kussar" or "Kussara", perhaps becoming the origins of, or an origin of, the word "Kaiser"!
During the reign of Mursilis II, Cilicia became a Hittite province (Ca. 1339-1306 B.C.).[lxiv] Later, the Assyrian empire stretched into and absorbed the Hittite colonies and cities of Cilicia. One such city was Germanicopolis, which means "city of the Germans." Lemprieres Classical Dictionary refers to this city:
Germanicopolis, a city of Asia Minor, near the Hellespont. . .[but Pliny], says, that it was in Cilicia.[lxiv]
He also mentions another city, "Germanicia. . .or Germanicea, a city of Comagene, now Adate."[lxiv] Where was Comagene? Lempriere explains:
Comagene, one of the five districts into which Syria was divided. It was near Cilicia, extending towards the east, as far
as the Euphrates.[lxiv]
Lempriere refers to yet another city with "German" as part of its name "Germanopolis, a city of Paphlagonia, now Ginopoli." [lxiv]
Ammianus Marcellinus tells us that Germanicopolis was in Cilicia.[lxiv] In a note the translators state that "Germanicopolis was the principal city of the free Isaurians."[lxiv] To the north of Cilicia, near Cappadocia, lay a region named Cataonia[lxiv] which may be a derivation of Catti (an alternative spelling of Hatti). Like the Assyrians, the Hittites were great iron-mongers. They discovered a practical technique for iron smelting[lxiv] which placed them ahead of all their neighbors in the industrial use of iron in the 14th century B.C. They are also connected by archaeologists to the barrows of the Black Sea and Don which contain iron battle-axes and ornamental vases with cord impressions like those of Thuringia in Germany.[lxiv] The battle-axe/corded culture were possibly early colonists of the Hittites in Germany who had left the fold somewhere around the Caucasus region.
Artifacts of a similar nature found on the northern slopes of the Caucasus are the "counterpart" of those discovered in northern Syria[lxiv] where the Hittites fled when their empire fell apart. Famous historian Gordon Childe states that this type of battle- axe may be traced back from Central Europe to the Nordics of the Caucasus region and from thence to Mesopotamia. These battle-axe Nordics of Europe, he claims, came from the southeast[lxiv] the Caucasus region! The iron cross[lxiv] and the Swastika sun-cross, both Indo-European emblems, featured very prominently in Hittite art and daily life.[lxiv] The double-headed eagle, another Indo- European or Aryan symbol, featured prominently too.[lxiv] The Hittites were famous for their double-headed eagle symbol: it is found in several places including on the back of a sphinx at Alaja Huyuk in Turkey, and among the sculptures of Yazilikaya. Later, the Assyrians incorporated this symbol, using it as a sign of their solar god, Ashur.[lxiv]
After being swamped by the Sea Peoples, the Hittites poured into Northern Syria establishing city-states, where their culture became confused or merged with that of the Aramaeans and the Assyrians. The Assyrians then called this area "the land of Hatti." Carchemish then became their most important centre.[lxiv]
The Assyrians decided to absorb them into their empire; Sargon II finally captured the last neo-Hittite king, Pisiris, and the city of Carchemish (717 B.C. (Isaiah 10:9)).[lxiv] They were thus absorbed into the Assyrian Empire and Carchemish became the headquarters of an Assyrian province.[lxiv] To historians, the Hittite race simply "vanished"[lxiv] though how could they have? If they did not simply "vanish, then what became of them?
After the Assyrians conquered the neo-Hittite city-states of northern Syria, they called themselves "Khatti-sars", meaning "Kaisers of Hatti" (or "Shah", "Czar", "Tsar," rulers over the Hittites"), and northern Syria "the land of Hatti".[lxiv] The Greeks distinguished between the Hittites of Northern Syria and the brown peoples of southern Syria. They called the Hittites "Leucosyri", meaning "white" or "blonde" Syrians, as we have seen. The historian Strabo called them "White Syrians."[lxiv] Gradually, as they became absorbed into the Assyrian Empire, they became regarded as fellow Assyrians, for they had much in common. When the Assyrian Empire fell, the Asshurim Hittites migrated with the Assyrians, but by no means all of them. Where did the rest "disappear" to?
THE HITTITES SPREAD OUT
The Hittites, or a few of them, intermarried with the dark Amorites. Robert Gayre seems to be one of the few people who has recognized that the Amorites were originally a dark people, some who became blonde due to intermarriage.[lxiv] He makes mention of the Christian Arabs in the hills of Galilee who are Nordic in type.[lxiv] Thus the Egyptians, Beddoe informs us, represented the Amorites with red hair.[lxiv] Fishberg throws further light on the subject:
We find in Asia Minor, Syria and Palestine at that time many races the Amorites, who were blondes.[lxiv]
Sayce describes the Amorites as being white, with light colored eyes. For some reason he relates them with the Mitanni.[lxiv] These Amorites probably moved into Persia, where the Persians called them "Germani.[lxiv] Herodotus[lxiv] mentions them along with various Persian tribes: Pasargadae, Maraphians, Maspians, Achaemenidae, Parthialaeans, Derusiaea, Germanians, Daans, Mardians, Dropicans, Sagartians. The region the Germanians dwelt is today called "Kharmania" or "Carmania". Why? Because they are particularly derived from the Hittite "Men of War" "Car-men" or Germans! Field,[lxiv] quotes from one Lawrence, a brother of Colonel T.E. Lawrence:
The Germanians were usually called Carmanians; they lived round Kirman which takes its name from them. Although classical authors describe their manner of life and religion as similar to that of the other Persians, they were commonly considered as a distinct people. It is plain that their culture was more primitive; they indulged in head-hunting. . .and preserved the rite of blood-brothers.
The Carmanians are known today as the Kermans.[lxiv] Not all Hittites fled southwards. Some moved to the shores of the Black Sea. It was these who may have founded the cities of Prusias (modern Cierus or Uskus), Prusias (Cius or Gemlik) and Prusa (Bursa or Brusa. It has been suggested that Prusa may have been founded by a Byzantine king Ca. 300 B.C., but no proof has been presented). From there, many may have settled in Thessaly being called the S'Cotussa.[lxiv] The Cotussa were also known as the Har, Haro (Hur or Her) tribes "from which the word 'hurrah' may have been derived."[lxiv]
The Greeks, both through these contacts with the Hittites, and earlier contacts, received much of their tradition and mythology from them. Their crested war-helmets are an example of this.[lxiv]
Other Hittites, rather than be subject to the Assyrians, migrated to northwestern India where many other Aryans had previously settled. Many of the names of the cities from which they migrated from in Northern Syria bore Sanskrit names. For example, Kizzu Wattana (Kishori Vardhana, "place for breeding horses"), Skinakthu (Shanaktu in Vedic), Tuwana (Tungavana, "mountain forrest"), Huvisana (Suvasana, "good for living") and so forth.[lxiv]
The Hittite provinces also bore various sanskrit -type names: Assura, Arsava, Pitassa, Kishori vardhana, Assi (Ayassi, pertaining to iron).[lxiv] Notice, they named one of their provinces "Assura", after their fore-father, Asshuram! It should come as no surprise then to learn how far their fame had spread, for the word "Assura" (master) in Finno-Ugric is a loan word from the Eastern Iranians![lxiv]
In The Makers of Civilization, Professor Waddell traces the Hittites, or part of them, into northwestern India. It was a migration, not an invasion over the insurmountable Hindu Kush with wives, children, cattle and goods, as many historians believe.[lxiv] Pococke reveals that one of the thirty six royal tribes of Rajasthan was called the Catti or Cathei, who were a war-like people.[lxiv] Of all the peoples of Northwestern India,
The Catti retains most originality; his religion, his manners, and his looks, all are decidedly Scythic. . .His size is considerably larger than common, often exceeding six feet. He is sometimes seen with light hair and blue coloured eyes.[lxiv] [For more information on this tribe refer to Appendix Three.]
Notice, mixed remnants of the Hittites may still be observed in Northwest India! However, where did the Hatti go? I shall discuss that question after the following section on Troy has been considered.
THE MYSTERY OF TROY
Troy was a great and prosperous seaport on the shores of the Aegean, in Asia Minor. Historians know that it had close ties with the Hittites. In fact the Hittite Empire may have been larger than realized, reaching even to the Aegean Sea. If not, then Troy was an Hittite colony, a part of its Empire.[lxiv] Troy fell at the same time as the Hittite Empire, forcing the inhabitants, the Aeneas, an Indo-European people[lxiv], to flee to Italy[lxiv]. The Roman traditions preserved this knowledge[lxiv] telling of how Aeneas and his followers arrived as fugitives in Italy, forming a colony at Alba Longa, intermarrying with the local Indo-European princes and forming the inner core of what later became known as the Roman Empire.[lxiv] Many Roman/Trojans fought for Rome and settled down in their conquered lands in Germany. That is why so many in the Middle Ages claimed that the Germans were originally from the region of Troy, and/or from the Romans who settled inside Germany.[lxiv] How right they were! Writes one historian:
It was anciently believed that the Romans, Franks and others were descended from Aeneas and the Trojans, hence Eneu: 'Europe'.[lxiv]
Researcher Baigent also notes that
The Merovingians. . .claimed descent from ancient Troy which, whether true or not, would serve to explain the occurrence in France of Trojan names like Troyes and Paris. . . .The regime of the early Merovingians thus conformed fairly closely to the model of the old Roman Empire.[lxiv]
Something of the Trojans and the Hittites may have been preserved in the old Nordic Traditions concerning the Ae-sir, a race of gods, descended from Odin. The name Ae-sir is connected with Troy.[lxiv] This particular Odin (for there were several Odins, Wotans and Tyrs) had his chiefs and law codes patterned after that of Troy.[lxiv] Those associated with him were called the "Aesir". Odin's predecessor was Wotan, whom the Hermundarii and Chatti tribes in Germany sacrificed to. Who is this Wodan, Votan or Wotan? Perhaps Dedan father of Asshuram now deified, and confused with other gods.
In Ezekiel 27:19 a mention is made of "Dan" in the service of modern Tyre. The context suggests that it cannot be Dan of the House of Israel. Indeed, the word for "Dan" in that verse is "Vedan" or "Woden".[lxiv]
In conflict with the Aesir, were the Vanir. They were always at war.[lxiv] The Vanir were, or became, gods who were responsible for wealth, fertility and commerce, subordinate to the Aesir. They demanded equality, but were only given it after a war with the Aesir. The Aesir, asserts one researcher were a race of people from between the Black and Caspian Seas.[lxiv]
These mythical occurrences, scholars inform us, may reflect historical events.[lxiv] If indeed this be the case, then it may reflect the rivalries of the Hittites (Aesir) with the Urartian Kingdom (centered around Lake Van). The Hittites eventually settled their differences with the peoples of Van, their leaders intermarrying into each others lines, and the cultures were shared. The Vannics in turn absorbed much of the Hittite way of life, culture, sexual taboos and rules of social etiquette.[lxiv] Indeed, there are similarities between the Vanir and Aesir, noticed by historians[lxiv] as they had began to share their culture. Tacitus mentions how the tribe called the Aestii or Aessii wore figures of boars as emblems of their religion, usually masks or helmets.[lxiv] Historians are surprised how the same helmets were worn by the priests of the Vanir,[lxiv] indicating that the Aestii are derived from the Aesir!
Just how did the Aestii arrive at the Baltic? What route did they take to finally reach there?
THE AESTII PRUSSIANS
The Catti or Cathei (Hittites), as we have seen, ended up in northwestern India. One of their tribes may have been the Casiri whom Pliny refers to as dwelling in or near India.[lxiv]
In Northwest India, tradition alleges, the name Asura came to be labelled on a faction of the Aryans who were driven out of India to the west and north.[lxiv] They were a warrior-caste, who had undertaken a change of religion,[lxiv] following Ahura Mazada (or Athura, Asuras), the rebel god, to the north and northwest.[lxiv]
Kalyanaraman, in his excellent two volume work Aryatarangini. The Saga of the Indo-Aryans, reveals that the Asura rebels were under the leadership of one Yima (who was an Odin?) who settled them in what we call today, Lithuania, on the Baltic![lxiv] Yama or Yim (son of Surya) had a brother Athtar or Assaracus, resembling the name of Asshur, according to Dr. Pilkey.[lxiv]
The Catti are one and the same as the Asura for both were rebels and both were warlike peoples exiled from their Aryan brethren. The next we hear of them is in Scythic Central Asia, known as the Borusi who later named the Volga "Oarus (Rus, if you remember, was a district in Anatolia). Here they met up with other Rusi tribes migrating out of Asia Minor.[lxiv]
The Borusi or Borussians, migrated up to the Baltic. The name changed to Brussi. The German equivalent of the Latin "Borusi" is Presussen from where we derive the name "Prussian."[lxiv] The western section of the Baltic peoples is known as the old (or original) Prussians. The Eastern branch are a different, but related people called the Latvians and Lithuanians.[lxiv] The Old Prussians are also known as East Prussians today. What do the Borusi or Prussians have to do with the Aestii (Asuras)? Everything!
For Tacitus, writing in the first century A.D., makes mention of the Aestii (or Aessii) dwelling on the Baltic coast where the Borusi were.[lxiv] They were two different names for the same people, historians unanimously claim. Gothic writer, Jordanes, places the Aestii to the east of the Vistula in Prussia.[lxiv] They were also known as the Haesti (Hesti or Nestians?) or Aistians or Aesty and were also called the Bororussians or Borussians or Bruzi.[lxiv]
The Aestii or Borussians resembled the north Germans in both appearance and in customs.[lxiv] They were just another branch of the same peoples being placed in that region next to their fellows, through Divine guidance, after being separated when migrating to India.
The Aestii Prussians spread along the coast westwards into northern Poland, naming the Bay of Danzig after themselves. Today a lagoon in that bay is still known as Ais-mares[lxiv] derived from the name Aistii or Aestii. The Daugava River flowing through Latvia, was originally known as the Dan-wina, which, like Danzig, is probably named after the father of Assuram, Dedan.
One of the Aestii tribes was the Sudva, known also as the Dainava Jotva (derived from Dedan-Joktan?). They were the largest and most important Prussian tribe, known also as Jatvingians, Jotvingai or Jatwiagi.[lxiv] A collection of 36,000 (!) folksongs of the Baltic peoples is called the Daines. The regions in Anatolia, near where the Hittites were, were known as Dardania and Dardanum. These plus the similar names on the Baltic may be derived from Dedan, not the Israelitish tribe of Dan, who were never there!
Finally, why have artifacts resembling those of the Assyrians and Hittites been found in Scandinavia: images of Astarte and Assyrian bronze swords?[lxiv] Because Assuram, being associated with Assyria, brought them with them on their journeyings into Europe! Also, I should mention here that it is said that German scholars in the 1930s claimed Hittite origins of the Germans, although I have seen no proof of this at the present time.
Now that we have discovered the true origins of the North Germans, what of the Assyrian and Hittite impact on European history since they put down roots in the heart of Europe? In the following chapter we shall explore the incredible destiny of the German peoples. But we need to keep in mind that it is probably better to say that the Assyro-Hittites settled in modern-day Deutschland as Deutschers as other peoples were sometimes referred to as "Germani" as I will be pointing out in a future book on the 'lost' 12 tribes of Israel. Further, these Assyro-Hittites knew that they were Germans, but the land did not become known as 'Germany' for some time.

THE MODERN ASSYRO-HITTITES
We have unearthed in dramatic fashion, the incredible true origins of both the Northern and Southern German peoples. God, the originator of all true history, and indeed the first Historian, has made history extremely interesting. It is only men who pervert history and make it boring!
Let us now take a brief look at the physical anthropology and human biology of the Germans to add further spice to our knowledge of true central European history.
GERMAN PHYSICAL TYPES
Diversities in tribal origins has led to a rich multi-physical human biological complex within the Central European genetic stream, following the model of a cline.
The major differences exist between north and south. At the northern base of the German central mountains one finds a sudden increase in pigmentation and brachycephalicy.[lxiv] In total, Germany is approximately 60% brachycephalic Alpine types and the rest dolicocephalic. Of the latter, many are mesocephalic.[lxiv] In Germany, far more so than elsewhere in Europe, the Alpines and Nordics have mixed.[lxiv] This may be due to the fact that some intermarriage occurred between the Hittites and Assyrians.[lxiv]
A broad line drawn from Breslau (in the east) through Dresden and Hanover to Cologne dividing the uplands and plains, divides the northern and southern Germans the dolico and brachy-cephalic respectively. There also appears to be some Alpine (brachycephalic) types in East Germany.[lxiv] Blondism and lighter eyes dominate the north, while brunettes dominate the south. Those in the north are only 5% brunette,[lxiv] but blondism in hair and skin decreases north to south but not west to east.[lxiv] They are also taller than those in the south. Ripley writes:
To an American the apparent unwillingness of some of the Germans boldly to own up to the radical ethnic differences which exist between the north and the south of the Empire is incomprehensible.[lxiv]
Again he mentions it:
And in Germany on the northern slopes of the main European watershed, we are confronted with a great nation, whose constituent parts are equally divergent in physical origin. With the shifting of scene, new actors participate, although the plot is ever the same. It is not a question of the Alpine and Mediterranean races, as in Italy. The Alpine element remains, but the Teuton replaces the other. Briefly stated, the situation is this: North-western Germany Hanover, Schleswig-Holstein, Westphalia is distinctly allied to the physical type of the Swedes, Norwegians and Danes. All the remainder of the Empire no, not even excluding Prussia, east of the Elbe is Teutonic in type; until finally in the essentially Alpine broad-headed populations of Baden, Wurtemberg and Bavaria in the south the Teutonic races passes from view. The only difference, then, between Germany and France in respect of race is that the northern country has a little more Teutonic blood in it. As for that portion of the Empire which was two generations ago politically distinct from Prussia, the South German Confederation, it is in no wise racially distinguishable from central France.[lxiv]
The southern Germans speak High German and are looked upon by their northern neighbors as uncouth and "rough 'n' tumble". They are notorious for their arrogance, rough humor, coarse temperament and vigorous pursuit of fleshly pleasures. However, Bavaria is also the home of Germanys artists, poets and musicians. Kuehnelt-Leddihn relates it thus:
In Germany there has always been the North/South tension. The Northerners tend to think of the Southerners as brutal, intemperate and backward, while Southerners regard Northerners as dumb, unartistic, without charm or imagination.[lxiv]
In addition to the above two dominant physical types, we also find a very weak Slavic element amongst the East Germans, far weaker than previously understood.[lxiv] This element is derived mainly from the Wends who penetrated as far as the Elbe River by the sixth century.[lxiv] The Austrians are largely Alpine with cephalic indeces similar to Bohemians and Bavarians,[lxiv] but a Nordic Dolicocephalic element persists in the Northern parts. The former are directly related to the Bavarians being descendants of the Alemanni and Bajuvars, elements of whom settled there. "Austria" is merely the English variation of Osterreich or Eastern Empire. It was also known as Ostmark, the eastern branch of Bavaria, becoming incorporated into the German Empire at the time of Otto I.[lxiv]
In addition to the aforementioned sub-racial types, in the northeastern coastal area of East Germany and along the coast of Poland dwell a few weak Est-Baltique (eastern Baltic) strains.[lxiv] Finally, a Nordic element numbering a mere five or six million occupies North-West Germany and is directly descended, in the main, from Aram. They are the tallest of all German Types.
Millions of "Germans" from Central Europe have migrated to America and tens of thousands to the British colonies. Indeed, some six million have migrated to America and their descendants number over fifty million today! But are they descendants of the Assyrians? Perhaps some are, but the bulk migrated from the extreme western and northwestern parts of Germany. They are not Assyrians but are related to the Anglo-Saxon-Celts.
SOUTH GERMAN TRIBAL NAMES
The tribes that settled Central Europe were mainly of Assyrian stock and were numerous. Below is a list of many of them and where they settled:
The Alemanni: this was one of the major tribes. They settled in southwest Germany (Baden, Bavaria, Wurtenberg), Austria and Alsace (the Spanish still call Germany Alemania and the French Allemagne). The Alemans originate from the Alman district of Assyria (Modern Aleppo in Syria). Hannay writes that the Alemans were "an unsettled people who were once known and dreaded in Central Asia."[lxiv] Central Asia? Sound familiar? Of course! For that is Scythia where dwelt the terrible Scythians, many of whom had blonde hair.[lxiv] This is also the region where pants or trousers came into vogue, being typical clothing of the Scyths and from whom many of the Celts arose who introduced this type of clothing into Western Europe.[lxiv] Ammianus Marcellinus states that two of the tribes of the Alemanni were the Iuthungi and Laeti.
The Boii: later known as Bajuvars or Bavarians, settled in Bavaria. Many settled for a time in North-East Italy after having been driven out by the Marcomanni and Quadi.[lxiv] They had a significant impact on Italian civilization.[lxiv] To this day, tens of thousands of German descent dwell in northeast Italy, having been severed from their Austrian homeland by the annexation of their territory after World War One, by the Italians.
The Quadi: settled Bohemiah and Monrovia in western Czechoslovakia. They fled westwards at the end of World War Two before the Soviet advancement. Many also settled in Austria. Ammianus Marcellinus says that the Quadi had much in common with the Sarmatians (a branch of the Scythians):
The Sarmatians and the Quadi who were in agreement because they were neighbours and had like customs and armour, had united and were raiding Pannonias. . .peoples closely united by the same frontiers and like savagery.[lxiv]
This was written Ca. 358 A.D. His description of Sarmatia corresponds to Homer's Scythia, and to the southern half of modern Russia.[lxiv] Interestingly enough, "Quadi" is a Middle Eastern word "Qua'id" meaning military exercises or manouvers, drill, evolutions of troops.[lxiv] The Mesopotamian region where the Assyrians anciently settled was known as Akkad. The Assyrians from that district were called the Quadi in Latin; but in English it is Akkadians. (See also the Silesian tribe referred to later in this chapter.)
The Helvetti: settled Switzerland, being later joined by the Alemanni. Both of these tribes may be classified as Alpines sub-racially. They comprise about 60% of the population of Switzerland at the present day. The French-speaking Burgundians in western Switzerland are Nordics and comprise 35% of the population. The Italians make up 4% and the Romanisch only 1%.
The Thuringians: settled Thuringia and Bohemia. Assur was known as Athur or Arthur in Assyria. His name is preserved in the Thuringian tribe, who though a Hittite people, lived among the southern Germans.
The Marcomanni: settled Bohemiah and Bavaria. Known to be a particularly savage tribe.[lxiv]
Suabi: also known as Suevi. Settled Schwabia now known as Wurtenburg. More on them later in this chapter.
Eudusii: this tribe has a remarkable similar rendering to the Eudusianoi tribe on the Black Sea.
Regardless of their various names, the Romans collectively called them Germani meaning "Men of war"! Tacitus labelled all of the tribes which settled in Germany as such (see his Germania). Yet many of the tribes and peoples who settled in northwest Germany migrated to other parts of Europe (such as the Langobardi, Guti, Cheruski, Chalusi) or later to the United States, not being Assyrian or Hittite by race. Those who migrated to the United States could not bear the iron discipline, dictatorship nor the militarism of Bismark. However, the peoples of central, southern and eastern Germany were content with Bismark, well pleased to serve under the brilliant Iron Chancellor.
Finally, there appears to be a strange fascination amongst the Germans with the ancient land of Assyria: whether it be their pioneering in archaeological excavations there, the Berlin Baghdad railway project, or the proposition put forward just prior to World War One to establish a large colony of settlers there.[lxiv] The Germans have played an important role in exploring and in archaeological digs in those parts, especially at Asshur itself.[lxiv] Indeed, it was they who first excavated Asshur in 1903-14.[lxiv]
Significantly, the southern German tribes knew that even though their tribal brethren did not have a common name, they had a common origin in Mannus, son of the god Tuisco. As previously explained, Mannus was Assur!
We have now completed our coverage of southern German origins. What of their northern and eastern German (Prussian) brethren?
NORTH GERMAN TRIBAL NAMES
Like their southern German neighbors, a plethora of tribes settled in northern and eastern Germany. Let us examine their names and see if any link may be found between them and the Hittite peoples of Anatolia and their colonies:
The Cisrhenani: settled in west Germany.[lxiv] They may have come from the Cissa district. A river with that name was found anciently in Pontus.[lxiv]
Saxons: settled west Germany, but this name must not be confused with those which settled Britain. This name may have originated with Sakce, a Hittite city in northern Syria, or one of Sargons titles Sakh or Saka (see Chapter One).
Sidones: settled west Germany. When the Hittites moved into northern Syria, they stretched part of the way down the coast and probably occupied the area of Sidon for a time. Recent discoveries indicate that the Hittites set up colonies in Trans- Jordan,[lxiv] so why not colonies a little further down the coast of Syria?
Istiaeones: Pliny refers to this tribe[lxiv] and also to the Issi tribe along or near the Don.[lxiv] They may be descended from the infamous Isaurians who dwelt in southern Asia Minor.[lxiv] Of them Lempriere comments: "Isauria, a country of Asia Minor, near Mount Taurus, whose inhabitants were bold and warlike."[lxiv] In Ca. 354 A.D. Marcellinus wrote thus of them:
For a long time they had been inflaming their warlike spirits by restless outbreaks. . .as even wild animals. . .so they all, swooping like a whirlwind [blitzkrieg!]. . .their natural ferocity was fired by greed, they spared no one, even of those who surrendered, but massacred them all.[lxiv]
Perhaps the Kurds and other lighter-skinned peoples in Asia descend from these Isaurians, though now considerably mixed. Those who moved into Europe centuries before-hand may have been the Istiaeones, for of the 13 tribal names mentioned by Pliny, he mentions them as one of the Franci tribes[lxiv] and thus Germans.
The Thuringians: they are Nordics, not Alpines.[lxiv] Marcellinus wrote that one of the tribes of the Franks or Franci was known as the Atthauri, "a restless people."[lxiv] The Franci shall be dealt with in more detail later. These Atthauri may be traced back to Central Asia according to Professor Hannay who wrote:
The Asii were simply a branch of the people of Asha, and so were the Attasii whom Rawlinson includes amongst the absent Mas-Sagetai.[lxiv]
Further, he wrote:
The. . .Asaei, who dwelt near the mouth of the Don, the Asene near Mount Taurus, mentioned by Pliny[lxiv] and the Asiotes, mentioned by Ptolemy were doubtless straggling bodies of the ancient Asii of Central Asia perhaps connected with the Aspasiace.[lxiv]
I should mention here that a branch of the Scythians was known as the Assi.[lxiv]
The Silesians: settled southwestern Poland.[lxiv] Most, after World War Two, fled into West Germany. The Soviets claim that Solidarity was part of a conspiracy of the Catholic Church and Germany to force Poland out of the Communist bloc. The reason for this, they claim, was to cut East Germany off from Russia, allowing the two Germanies to reunite and also to regain the lost lands of Pomerania, East Prussia and Silesia. These Silesians probably come from the Cilician region of the Hittite Empire. The battle-axes of ancient Silesia is traced back to Troy by Gordon Childe,[lxiv] which were Hittite axes![lxiv] It is interesting that the Egyptians called Cilicia Qedii (refer to the Quadi referred to previously in this chapter).
The Lemovii: settled East Germany.
Germani: a specific tribe,[lxiv] the name of which was passed on to cover all Assyrians and Hittites in Germany. Speaking of the Cartagena region, Pliny wrote of the Oretani tribe surnamed Germani.[lxiv]
The Hurmundurri: these are a dolicocephalic tribe like the Hessians and Thuringians.[lxiv] They were also known as the Hermundurri and may descend from the Hur or Her Cotussa tribe which fled for a time into Greece. "Hur" of course means white or blonde and the name may ultimately derive from Asshurim.
Sicambri and Sallii: known as German Franks. Alexander the Great made war with the Sigambri and Ambri in North-West India as well as the Silei on the Sillis or Jaxartes River.
TRUE ORIGINS OF THE FRANCI
I am surprised to find that Hannay, like myself, connected the city of Prusa or Brusa in Bithynia with the Prussians. He mentions that the name of the city is sometimes spelled Broussa or Boursa.[lxiv] The peoples of Dessau, a very old state in northern Germany claimed their ancestors came from Lake Ascenius in Bithynia.[lxiv] This is the precise area where the two cities of Prusias and Prusa were located! Of Prusa Hannay writes:
But before arriving at Prusa, the caravans had to pass through the celebrated Iron Gates in Mount Teuthras in Teuthrania.[lxiv]
Mount Teuthras may have been named after the god Teuton. In Europe we find that the alternative name of the god Mercury was Teutas or Teutates[lxiv] and a tribe in northern Germany was called Teutoni or Teutones[lxiv] and nearby was the Teucteri tribe.[lxiv] Where did the Teucteri originate? Lempriere's Classical Dictionary mentions that Teucria was a name given to Troy[lxiv] and that Teucri was a name of the Trojans![lxiv]
What has this to do with the Franci? Everything! Marcellinus writes thus of the peoples near the Rhine River:
Some assert that after the destruction of Troy a few of those who fled from the Greeks and were scattered everywhere occupied those regions.[lxiv]
Could anything be plainer? Many of the North Germans came from the Hittite colony of Troy! In addition, the son of Priam, King of Troy was named Paris.[lxiv] The German tribe which settled in North France was the Parisii, after which Paris is named.[lxiv]
One admirable researcher wrote of a kingdom in ancient Anatolia called Phrygia, inhabited by a race called Phryges or "Freemen" by the Greeks:[lxiv]
After the Trojan war the region of Phrygia was utterly devastated by Cimmerians Greek for people of Gomer. The Phrygians gradually migrated into Europe. Because they came from the region ruled by the wild Cimmerian hordes, it was common to speak of the Phrygians also as Cimmerians. The Greek name Phryges was gradually changed to Phraggoi. When the Romans encountered them, they applied the Roman word for Freeman Franci Franks in English. . .Is it only a coincidence that the name of the capital of their new land is Paris the name of the famous Trojan or Phrygian hero Paris, son of Priam?
The Great Kings of Hatti were allied with the Phrygians of Wilusa a name changed in later Greek to Ilion, the plain of Troy
. . .This union maintained itself even after both Hatti and the Phrygians were defeated at the fall of Troy.[lxiv]
The Romans recognised among the Franks, or Phraggoi, two groups: East and West Franks. The one German, the other French. The German tribe called East Frankish was the Chatti or Hessian tribe.[lxiv]
Marcellinus mentioned that the Franci, with the German Saxons, invaded Gaul (Ca. 368 A.D.),[lxiv] but only a minority settled in northern France.[lxiv] And one writer explains that the "character of the Franks was essentially destructive."[lxiv] They established the city of Troyes in northeastern France!
One of their tribes in northeastern France, according to Pliny, were the Leuci.[lxiv] In Asia Minor, in the district of Caria, a town called Leucopolis arose.[lxiv] Remember, the neo-Hittites were called Leucosyrians or White Syrians. Lempriere explains:
Leucosyrii,a people of Asia Minor, called afterwards Cappadocians. . .the same name is given to the inhabitants of Cilicia, where it borders on Cappadocia.[lxiv]
One writer mentions how historian, Von Luschan, sees a connection between the Hittites of Asia Minor and certain west Europeans.[lxiv] Of course! For they were the Hatti (Hessians) which entered Germany! However, he does not solve the problem as to whether the Hittites came from Central Europe, or the Alpine race from Western Asia, though he does incline to the latter view.[lxiv]
Professor Waddell also claims that the Chatti or Hatti were direct descendants of the Hittites![lxiv] With the Chatti were the Hattuari and Catlauni tribes. A town in North-Rhine Westphalia, Hattingen, is named after them (similarly Frankfurt is named after the Franks). In Greco-Roman times the province of Cataonia in Asia Minor preserved the Hittites name.[lxiv]
Strabo claims that the Chatti and Chattuori were German tribes[lxiv] and who were the descendants of the Katiari or Catiari mentioned by Herodotus as dwelling in European Scythia.[lxiv] Not surprisingly, many Hittite art forms may be found to be among the Scythians.[lxiv] Further evidence lies in the fact that there are many philological affinities between the languages of ancient Persia and parts of northern India and Germany[lxiv] and that the language spoken by the Scythians (Assyrians and Hittites) was very similar to Persian (Aryan).[lxiv]
Of 12,000 primitive Persian words, over 4,000 are pure German.[lxiv] Here we have a clear connection between the Hittite Mitanni Mede Persian Aryan languages and German! However, as Taylor writes:
It is a moot point whether the Nordic Prussians learnt German from the Alpine Bavarians or vice versa. They are so racially different that one of the two certainly spoke some entirely different language originally.[lxiv]
The southern Germans would have spoken Assyrian originally, quite different to the Aryan languages such as Hittite originally spoken by the ancestors of the Northern Germans. Sturtevant, author of A Comparative Grammar of the Hittite Language, states that the language of the Hittites and the Germans have a common origin.[lxiv] Speaking of Old High German Williams wrote that:
Historians now say that the Hittites. . .were a fair, blond people speaking a language so much like early German, that many words were identical. The Hittites, like the Germans. . .also knew the secret of working iron.[lxiv]
Gamkrelidze and Ivanov[lxiv] mention the incredible similarity between the historical Anatolian dialects (Hittite) and Balto-Prussian. Trubacev in the esteemed Journal of Indo-European Studies notes the many similarities between and "the correspondence to Baltic names in Asia Minor and in Thracia."[lxiv] He refers to Thracian words which came from Bithyania, one which is actually a name of a city. "A striking example is Thracian Ttpovoa, a city name in Bithynia: Baltic Prus, an ethnic name."
Lehman in his superb work The Hittites, states that the Hittite storm god Tarkhunt was the Hurrian Teship. He rode a bull and carried a thunderbolt with which he struck down his terrified enemies. It is found from Asia Minor in an arch all the way along the Danube and the Rhine to Saxony. Even Emperor Wilhelm II of Germany apparently fervently believed and accepted the Hittite origins of the Germans![lxiv] Another proof of Hittite settlement in Germany is the similarities between their and Frankish feudalism. According to Wiseman:
The feudalism of medieval Europe [is]. . .In essentials the structure of Hittite society, which antedates Frankish feudalism by 2,000 years, [and] is identical.[lxiv]
No wonder, for the Franks were the Hittites! Strangely, like their fascination with Assyria, the Germans are equally fascinated with the Hittites. The Hittite Empire was rediscovered by Hugo Winckler in 1904, a Berlin scholar and fervent pan-German and pan-Babylonianist a theory which believes that all civilizations and cultures originated in Babylon.
The German Orient Society has done a marvellous job in excavating Boghazkoy, the capital of the Hittites which lies ninety miles east of Ankara.
WHAT THEY SAID ABOUT THE PEOPLES
OF NORTH GERMANY
Author Rene Lagrange, concerning the handsome Prussian troops who entered Paris in 1871, wrote:
The spectacle was grand. Their hair was blond and reddish, their moustaches were strong and bold in outline, their complexion was fair and at the same time ruddy, their eyes clear and sky-blue with a fierce gleam, recalling most convincingly the portrait of those men which was painted in ancient times by the pen of Tacitus.[lxiv]
Adolf Bastian, German anthropologist simply declares: Prussia is a country of warriors; so it was and so it will remain.[lxiv]
What did Tacitus write of these North German warriors?:
For the Germans have no taste for peace.[lxiv] ... Wherever they go it is always with their weapons about them.[lxiv]
Regarding the Chatti, he wrote that they had a fierce countenance,[lxiv] and that
Every battle is begun by these men. They are always in the front rank, where they present a startling sight: for even in peace-time they will not soften the ferocity of their expression.[lxiv]
Ridpath wrote: The Chatti were among the most fierce and most invincible[lxiv] of the tribes.
Gerhard Marx, previously quoted, had this to say about them: They would. . .charge the enemy with lightning-like speed, something that we in the 20th century know as Blitzkrieg.[lxiv]
Professor Hannay writes that:
the Prussian ideal is force. . .Shorn of its theatrical pomp and show, its scientific setting, its vaunted organization, its imperial rhetoric and its ridiculously familiar references to a partial Deity, Hohenzollern ambition is Barbarism pure and simple.[lxiv]
To wrap up this section, one final quote by Ernest Renan:
I have always been struck by the. . .diligence of the Germans. It is scarcely surprising that in the art of war, which is after all an inferior though complicated art, they should have attained to superiority.[lxiv]
SHEBA AND DEDAN
Also dwelling in West Germany today are other descendants of Abraham through Keturah. Brother of Dedan (of whom descended Asshurim, father of the Hittites) was Sheba. Sheba stayed with his brethren in their long wanderings into Europe.
Sheba became known as the Schwabians which dwell today in Baden- Wurtemburg. Several European tribes were called Suebi,[lxiv] so one has to be discrete in identifying Sheba. The Suebi were also known as the Suabi[lxiv] an obvious derivation of Sheba.
In ancient Catalonia a river known as the Subi was once extant and may be connected to the name of Sheba. Pliny in his Natural History[lxiv] mentions the Suebi as dwelling amongst the Scythian hordes north of the Danube. They became known as the Sueves living east of the Vistula River in East Prussia and were regarded as a branch of the Quadi.[lxiv] Lempriere also mentions a tribe called the "Subatrii, a people of Germany, over whom Drusus triumphed."[lxiv]
Being Dinaric in type, they are brachycephalic.[lxiv] Their nasal prominence and facial features are similar to those of the peoples of Anatolia.[lxiv] The Schwabians or Suabians are known to be the hardest working, thriftiest, introspected and most self-sufficient people in Germany. Their future destiny will be discussed in the following chapter.
THE RISE OF PRUSSIA
In the thirteenth century, the Knights of the Teutonic Order conquered and Christianized the original or Old Prussians, known as Borussians, Prusse, Prusians, Preussen or Pruisen.[lxiv] After the Teutonic Knights brutally smashed and slaughtered the Prussians, many colonists from north and central Germany moved eastwards, and were not only of the same race as the Prussians, but the same nation.[lxiv]
The Old Prussians were the "holding-forces" left behind as the Germanic tribes hurled themselves upon Rome.[lxiv] They were the same people as those in the West. These eastern Franks (Ripuarian Franks or Hesse) were the successors of the Roman Empire.[lxiv] Harrison in his chilling book The German Peril states that "Prussia was the only European state organised on a military basis, as completely as the Roman republic."[lxiv] According to Taylor:
The noblest destiny of all the barbarian peoples was that reserved for the Franks, who were, indeed, the founders of the Holy Roman Empire, which in a sense replaced the Western Roman Empire. . .The best known tribes were the Batavians in the north and the Chatti (i.e. Hesse) in the south. The former belonged to the Salia or seashore Franks, the latter to the Ripuarian Franks.[lxiv] ... The Holy Roman Empire developed from the conquests of Charlemagne, the Great Emperor of the Franks.[lxiv]
Although few know it, Charlemagne's real name was Karl der Grosse. He used France and the German Rhineland states as his base and his capital was in Aachen, West Germany. What we gauge from this, then, is that the Roman Empire, via the Holy Roman Empire, was continued by the Asshurim Hittites and their Assyrian allies!!! The Bible predicts that another Assyrian Holy Roman Empire (Babylonian -so-called 'Christian' Church kingdom) is to emerge in these last days in the form of a United States of Europe. However, let us return to the thread of my argument.
The colonists into East Germany named their land Prussia after the inhabitants of Prussia a little further to the east and south of the Baltic. This territory, the New Prussia, is known as West Prussia. West Prussia grew until it had absorbed all of what we call East Germany as well as various other German states in the central zones of West Germany. Later, all of Northern Germany was united under Prussia: in 1866 the war against Austria saw the death blow to the German Confederation of 1815. In its place appeared the North German Confederation under Prussian leadership. In 1871, after the war with France, the other south German states joined the Union.
At last! The United Germany which was sought by Frederick Wilhelm II (1806) and that which Frederick Wilhelm III attempted to organize (1850), was accomplished. In charge was the Iron Chancellor Otto von Bismark. Prussia was destined to consistently play the leading role within the Empire (1871-1918), the Republic (1918-1933) and the Third Reich (1933-1945).
Now that we have been able to clearly identify the true origins of the Germans, let us take a look at what will be their destiny.

WHAT IS GERMANY'S DESTINY?
Great British leader, Winston Churchill, as the Germans were invading Russia,[lxiv] said:
I see advancing in hideous onslaught the Nazi war-machine, with its clanking, heel-clicking, dandified Prussian officers, its crafty expert agents, fresh from the caning and tying down of a dozen countries. I see also the dull, drilled, docile, brutish masses of the Hun soldiery plodding on like a swarm of crawling locusts.
The Scythians, too, are described by ancient peoples and historians alike as "locusts", destroying forests and fruit plantations. Let us now explore the mind of these German "Hun", so aptly described by Winston Churchill.
THE GERMAN RACIAL PSYCHE
The German personality and psyche its expression of their centuries of experiences and hereditary gene ancestry is not unlike that of their forebears related in Chapter Two. Velikovsky in his Mankind in Amnesia speaks of the collective unconscious mind: an invisible membrane which unites nations and causes them to act in unison. He wonders whether
A collective mind is a product merely of some process akin to telepathy, or whether it may also link consecutive generations.[lxiv]
One researcher thinks that "this collective unconscious does not develop individually, but is inherited. It consists of pre-existent forms, the archetypes."[lxiv]
... as a species, all humans share some common memories and experiences, and that these jointly owned racial treasures are stored away in the collective unconscious. . .that all of our unconscious life (our dreams, our impulses, our mythologies, our artistic creativity etc) mirrors the world of pure archetypes, drawing its psychic energy from them and diffusing their patterns throughout our personalities and behaviour.[lxiv]
See Paul Colinvaux's The Fate of Nations (1980). Velikovsky also labels inherited unconscious memory as a racial memory an instinct that causes national actions in the wake of various stimuli such as crises. Allow him to explain:
The existence of a racial memory does not mean that an impression absorbed by one generation can be remembered by the following ones, but that impressions, especially traumatic and repetitious impressions, experienced by many of the forebears, may become a permanent though unconscious mneme or mneme complex, providing adequate responses in suitable situations.[lxiv]
Thus a nation's collective mind and character, its actions and thoughts, has been shaped by generations of experience and reactions to various stimuli and kept within the racial memory of nations. Similarly, the forefather of a nation, in this case Assur, gave his nature to his descendants, the modern Germans! No wonder the Germans operate in predictable cycles of peace and war. Their national mood at the present time is likened to that of the 1920's, according to many tourists. In these cycles, they unfortunately exhibit unsavory qualities.[lxiv] The entire book by Baynes Germany Possessed (1941) discusses this phenomenon over 305 pages. Thus, according to Hearnshaw, the tragic story of Germany is one
. . .of a people always warlike, always aggressive, an Esau among nations, a rogue among elephants. . .A constant source of disturbance in the heart of Europe. . .This is all the more lamentable because the German peoples have throughout the ages displayed qualities which in happier circumstances might have rendered great service to humanity. They have shown high courage in danger; amazing endurance in suffering; pathetic submission to leaders; a remarkable capacity for believing what they are taught and for doing what they are told to do. . .All these gifts, however, have been prostituted to selfish and unworthy ends.[lxiv]
Hearnshaw details the war spirit of the German mind: 1. Early tribal wars. 2. Early medieval wars. 3. Later medieval wars. 4. The thirty year war. 5. The wars of Frederick the Great. 6. The Revolutionary and Napoleonic wars. 7. The Danish war. 8. The Austro-Prussian war. 9. The Franco-German war. 10. World War I. 11. World War II.
Why the German capacity for causing of so many wars? As we have seen, obviously all national characteristics are stored in the mind and passed on from generation to generation via the genes and societal experiences, all the way from Assur. And if Assur is indeed Sargon, this makes even more sense.
THE AMAZING RESONANCE THEORY
I would like to speak in terms of the "Resonance Theory" whenever Germany rises up, a peculiar pattern emerges, repeating previous occurrences. For example:
A) Bismarkian Wars:
1) Materialist, "sensible" Germany knowing its limits; yet preparing through physical and economic growth, the power for expansion.
2) Bismarck gains power.
3) German territory liberated (1863 Schleiswig-Holstein).
4) Austria conquered (1866)
5) France beaten (1870-71)
6) Challenges Britain as leader of the world.
7) Expansion to the east. In 1878 Kaiser visits Turkey and Jerusalem. Berlin-Baghdad railway constructed 1870-1914.
B) World War One:
1) Germany "sensible", knowing its limits prior to war.
2) Wilhelm gains increasing power.
3) Combines with Austro-Hungarian Empire to form the ominous Central Powers.
4) France invaded.
5) Expands into the East; in 1915 crushes Serbia, threatens Greece.
6) Sea and air war against Britain; 1914 Zepellins; 1917 U-Boat threat; 1917 The Gotha raids; mustard gas.
7) Russia invaded.
C) World War Two:
1) Gustav Stresseman materialist, "sensible" Germany knowing its limits.
2) Hitler gains power.
3) 1936 Rhineland liberated.
4) 1938 Anschluss Austria absorbed.
5) 1940 Fall of France.
6) 1943 U-Boat threat; 1940-41 blitz against Britain; 1944 V1 attacks; 1944-45 V2 attacks; gas ovens.
7) 1940-41 Hitler takes over the Balkans (expansion to the East). Middle East (North Africa) and Russia invaded.
Could history repeat? Let us consider the following.
D) World War Three:
1) Adenaur, Schmidt, Strauss, Kohl materialist, "sensible" Germany knowing its limits.
2) The Beast gains power, perhaps pushed to the fore by the secret society Prieure de Sion.
3) East Germany confederates with West Germany in the context of a neutral U.S. of Europe. Hundreds of thousands of Germans residing in East Europe and Russia permitted to return home.
4) Austria assumes a prominent position within the U.S. of Europe. She stands in the centre between the Germanic north, Latin south and Slavic east. She stands also between the Protestant north-west, Catholic centre/south and Orthodox south-east.
5) France and East Europe dominated by Germany in the coming National European Socialist Empire. Middle East invaded.
6) German-led U.S. of Europe uses its new, high technology and satellite weapons systems to neutralize American and British defensive systems. Anglo-Saxons subjugated by the German-led European hordes (including Latins, Slavs, Canaanites).
7) Although South-east Europe is to be dominated by Germany in the U.S. of Europe, dissenting nations will simply be invaded. Russia will be invaded.
STRANGE INFLUENCES UPON MANKIND
Why this German capacity for an amazing repetition of cycles of war? Why do all nations have 'dwnsides'? Besides the racial memory, something weird and sinister appears to be working amongst the peoples of the earth. Let us first understand that the entire universe operates in an electromagnetic field. Dewey, author of the remarkable work Cycles states:
If there are electromagnetic waves oscillating throughout our universe. . .such waves may be affecting plants, animals, and human beings. And where do these long waves originate? Let me repeat: They can come only from the sun, the planets, or outer space.[lxiv]
Research proves that humans respond to these electromagnetic forces,[lxiv] some more so than others, depending upon the type of the force, amount of the force, the individual personality and finally the national characteristic (racial memory). Let me add here that these scientific proofs must not, can not, should not, be confused with the perversion of astrology. Astrology is the demonic perversion of rhythmic truth (see for example Gauquelin, The Spheres of Destiny). It is indeed well documented that some people's characters change with the advent of sunspots or a full moon or in the presence of intense ultra-violet concentration.
The influence of the sun on the rhythm of life is obvious to all in the changing seasons, and these are also natural processes which follow cycles relating to sunspot activity and the phases of the moon. . .The rising sun crossing the horizon sends an electrical charge through the earth's magnetic field and has a correspondingly stimulating affect on the rhythm of the human body and thus on the senses. The rising moon has a similar influence and to a far less extent do the planets and perhaps the nearer stars.[lxiv]
What does this all mean? What may we deduce? Dewey sees that economic depressions, social unrest, wars etc. occur in regular cycles. Cycles, of course, are rhythmic repetitions. They are not regular, equal intervals between events. Thus the word "cycle" in reality means "coming around to the place of beginning" a fairly regular time period, not an exact interval.
Speaking of cycles, Dewey has this to say:
We can now theorize that something somewhere acts on the electromagnetic field in which the earth is immersed and that this field affects the chemistry of our bodies to make us alternately optimistic or pessimistic, energetic or slothful, warlike or pacifistic.[lxiv]
Yes, "warlike or pacifistic". For we are now soon to enter into a time of Assyrian-German militarism. One should note also the incredible effects of sunspot activities (see Gribbin and Plagemann's book The Jupiter Effect, Chapter 9). The next sunspot highs will be in 1993, 2002, 2014. How do these forces from outer space affect man even entire nations? Man is a fixed part of the universe, described by Dr. V.M. Inyushin as "bioplasma." Our minds are automatically tuned into and thus affected by all external stimuli. Thus, man cannot but help be affected by these forces. Given this human ability, demons are able to bring to pass the star sign predictions of some people on occassion. So be terribly careful and avoid such practices.
Let us understand that angels were to have rulership over the universe the stars and planets. However, one third followed Lucifer in rebellion and became demons. How have the mighty fallen, for they had a glorious opportunity for them to rule over the solar systems (which consist of planets which revolve around the suns (stars)). Thus they still associate themselves with the stars and planets, but in a perverted way. It would seem that they channel their spirit powers to perhaps coincide with or work with the natural forces God had set in motion in the universe. (See II Kings 21:3-5; 23:4-5; Ephesians 2:2). So why, one might ask, are the cycles of war so prevalent in the human mind? Simply due to this: the demons influence the human mind synchronized with a manipulation of those pertinent physical forces from outer space which would affect a given nations temperament!
THE GERMAN MIND AND CHARACTER
Today, the Germans are enjoying the pacifist phase of their cycle. They show little visible manifestation of violence. However German undercurrents, and thinking and philosophy run deep and is not apparent to sheep-like, naive Anglo-Saxon-Keltic man.
Now listen to what others have observed about the German mind. Sir Winston Churchill, glorious warrior, hero and champion of the British race, before the House of Commons best summarized the German character trait:
The Germans combine in the most deadly manner the qualities of the warrior and the slave. They do not value freedom themselves and the spectacle of it in others is hateful to them. Whenever they become strong, they seek their prey, and they will follow with an iron discipline anyone who will lead it! [lxiv]
Could anything be plainer? Surely one as experienced with the German mind as Churchill should know what he is talking about? Gerhard Marx who researched extensively for his M.A. thesis A Two Thousand Year Analysis of the German Character warns that the:
inherent characteristics of a people do not change over the centuries. They might be modified, periodically restricted, but essentially they remain unchanged. If there was an overriding German character trait that struck the Romans, it was the cruel, aggressive, warlike nature of theirs.[lxiv]
Hamblock in his Germany Rampant[lxiv] concurs; he states that they have a warlike character which "has remained unchanged for centuries." No amount of social engineering will ever change them or any other nation for that matter. For example, as one writer put it, "Germany has contributed more military leaders than any other nation in history."[lxiv] Wolfgang Manzel,[lxiv] a most popular German writer of his time candidly admits the following:
We Germans were in the past the leading people of Europe, we were the most warlike people ever to have existed on earth.[lxiv]
Do you see the red lights flashing? Will you heed the warning? Now is not the time to ignore the lessons of history. Rather, now is the time to be glued to world news watching news trends in the light of Bible prophecy. Let us continue. The Romans even used certain German tribes to fight other German tribes. "For centuries the Roman army had consisted for the most part of foreigners, chiefly Germans."[lxiv]
To the nations they attacked, the Belgians[lxiv], the Gauls[lxiv], Celts[lxiv] and others, historians always record their unbelievable barbarity and how the effect on their opponents was "disastrous" and vicious. They have always been noted for their warlike attributes.[lxiv] Not unlike their forefathers, the Assyrians. The Roman historian, Tacitus, had much to say about the Germans when writing in the latter half of the first century A.D. I will list them:
1) The Germans worshipped the god Tuisto.[lxiv] 2) Their youths sought out other tribes who were at war if their own tribe was stagnating under a protracted peace.[lxiv] 3) They had no taste for peace.[lxiv] 4) They loved indolence but hated peace.[lxiv] 5) They taught Rome the severest lessons.[lxiv] 6) The Germans were the fiercest soldiers in the Roman army.[lxiv] 7) They mercilessly tortured their Roman prisoners.[lxiv] 8) Surpassed all nations in arms and in loyalty.[lxiv] 9) Had a passion for deciding all issues by the sword.[lxiv]
What is true of Germany then, was true under Hitler and will be again soon! Finally, Gooch in his The German Mind and Outlook states:
The German mind may, therefore, be understood as the sum of the habits of thought, modes of feeling, and ways of behaviour commonly found in Germans.[lxiv]
What are these "ways of behavior commonly found in Germans"? I might add, also, in Assyrians too? Surely, dear reader, you must know the answer by now?!
WHAT NOW GERMANY?
Surely the big question of the twentieth century is Germany's destiny. What will this incredibly gifted nation do? What is her future? Listen! Listen to the wise words of Nizer who had his remarkable book The Hidden Enemy: The German Threat to Post-War Peace published in 1941. The following are certain extracts which should make you sit upright very quickly:
Was Nazism a coincidence or the fulfillment of age-old German dreams, philosophically and systematically inculcated into German consciousness for centuries?[lxiv] [as we have seen, this is indeed the case]
. . .Those who appeal to this basest instinct of the German people are instantly assured the most devoted following.[lxiv]
The war lust of the German people is composed not only of a philosophy for conquest, but of a race theory to justify it.[lxiv]
For example, in 1900, the book Grossdeutschland and Mitteleuropa um das Jahr 1950 foresaw the triumphant days falling in 1950: 'All Germans have united.[lxiv]
In German Triumphans (Berlin, 1895) he [the author] writes: 'the United States declining to give way, the German, Italian and French navies mobilize and set sail for America. The American navy is destroyed. On land, the German armies make short work of the American mercenaries. Under the brilliant leadership of the German Leader, the Germans were everywhere victorious. . .The British navy was destroyed. Invaded, the English offered but a half-hearted resistance. The German and Italian soldiers seized London. England and America were defeated[lxiv]
Will the above become reality? Will Germany succeed the third time around? Let God Almighty who knows what the future holds, thunder:
Behold, I am against thee [Israel] and will draw forth my sword out of his sheath [i.e. Assyria-Germany. See Isaiah 10:5], and will cut off from thee the righteous and the wicked (Ezekiel 21:3).
Again God warns us through His holy prophet Ezekiel:
. . .son of man prophesy, and smite thine hands together, and let the sword be doubled the third time, the sword of the slain (verse 14).
Notice, in the Third World War, the punishment will be far worse than anything previous. That, dear reader, is Germany's destiny to ignite World War Three! Not Russia, but Germany! History will repeat itself! Germany will do it again! Listen to the wise words of A.W. Sheppard, author of The Nazis Rise Again:
Hitlerism differs only in scale from its predecessors. Hitlerism is no more than a revised, enlarged, less inhibited and more blatant version of the imperialism of William II, the nationalism of Bismarck, and the banditry of Frederick, called the Great. It is merely Prussianism in excelsis, the unscrupulous greed, lust and aggressiveness of the Teutons which has plagued Europe from time immemorial.[lxiv]
Sheppard's book is dedicated to warning the Anglo-Saxon-Keltic peoples of the yet future German peril. How will Germany do it next time? Could West Germany alone take on the world and the might of Soviet Russia? Or could the Germans of Europe unite to form a greater German union consisting of:
1) West Germany 61 million population. 2) East Germany 16 million. 3) Austria 7.5 million. 4) Switzerland 6 million. 5) Alsace-Lorraine (France) 3 million. 6) Tirol (Italy) tens of thousands.
This gives us roughly 93 million!! However, there are at least 4 million Germans scattered throughout East Europe and Russia and tens of thousands of those are returning each year. Many or most Lux are Germans and the tiny principality of Liechtenstein with a population of roughly 21,000 is also German. Of course, one third of Swiss are not German and inside West Germany dwell about 3 million non-Whites. Tens of thousands of Germans are today scattered around Europe and South America. This gives us a grand total of about 94 million Hitto-Assyrians on planet earth. Even that huge human resource is simply not large enough to challenge the might of Soviet Russia (280 million), China (1.1 billion) or the United States (245 million). How then, might Germany challenge these nations for world supremacy and change the course of history?
PAX GERMANICATHE COMING U.S. OF EUROPE
For centuries groups, men and leaders have worked for and stated that they wanted a European Union. The Holy Roman Empire was one such dream. So was Napoleon's attempts, Wilhelm II's and Hitler's. A separate book will be prepared documenting the history of political and religious thought on European Unity which has been extant for centuries.
The conservatives, industrialists, landlords, aristocrats and royalists all over Europe which initially supported Hitler, thinking they could control him, turned against him after he began to control them! They regarded him as a crude, rough 'n tumble type from non-elite heredity. To them he was anti-establishment, overly racial, neo-pagan (probably even an occultist), a rural romanticist who wanted to turn the clock back, and excessively "green". They found that his racism deeply offended Germany's neighbors and his invasion of them to forge a U.S. of Europe was unacceptable. In contrast, they preferred a U.S. of Europe to be built block by block, and for the Church of Rome to have a permanent place, not a temporary use. Nazism was certainly an aberration in Roman revivals over the centuries (cf. Revelation 17:11).
I highly recommend to the reader Robert Herzstein's fascinating work When Nazi Dreams Come True (1982). Herzstein is also author of The Holy Roman Empire in the Middle Ages: Universal State or German Catastrophe? (1966) and The War that Hitler Won. I cannot even begin to summarize the book, but the author briefly traces European unity thought in such historical institutions such as the Hanseatic league, Holy Roman Empire and Napoleon's attempts. Interestingly, all of these were anti-British and anti-Jewish bankers! Nazi scholars recognized the history of the European idea and attempted to convince conquered nations that they should join Germany in a U.S. of Europe, but definitely dominated by the Germans.[lxiv] For example, Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's Propaganda Minister, stated in 1943 that the "aim of our struggle must be to create a unified Europe. The Germans alone can really organize Europe."[lxiv] The back cover of the book however notes:
Even as the Nazis invaded, their plans were drawn up for the Final Solution, the harnessing of mineral wealth into vast Reich cartels and monopolies, and for the slave labour programme. They dreamed of a 'Common Market', a post-war European Confederation within a common legal and currency system. After the Nazis had surrendered, the planners lived on in the ministries of the Federal Republic, making their theories the cornerstone of policy.
Do you see the incredible significance of that statement? After World War II, some of the Nazis re-occupied top positions in banking, industry, government etc, and put into effect a snow-balling policy which would lead ultimately to a U.S. of Europe. Although most of them have since died, their policies exist and they no doubt have successors who, too, believe in a U.S. of Europe. Many other Nazi criminals went underground and were helped by the Spinne and Odessa to flee to various countries, especially those of South America. It is quite likely that Nazi gold is being used to help finance some of their plans. See Sayer and Botting's excellent book Nazi Gold.
Their philosophy has been thoroughly integrated with those of the pan-European royalists and aristocrats. Hitlerism was a political burden they have easily eschewed. Prince Loewenstein in 1934 had published a marvellous work After Hitler's Fall. In it he advocates a Germany which is Christian and which has its roots more firmly in the Reich concept than the neo-paganism of Hitler's Germany. Here are some exciting and amazing extracts from the pages of that book:
This book deals with the idea and form of the coming Reich. . .For the New Germany for which we are fighting is founded on its mission of universal service. . .the beginning of the Reich. . .dates from the time when the Roman Empire united all the barbarous tribes. . .Hence the foundations are Roman and will remain so till the end of time. . .a unified worldwide Reich. . .those who fail to understand the real history of the Roman symbol are constantly misunderstanding its significance. . .the effects of which will appear anew in the future "The Holy Germano-Roman Empire". . .there is thus a fraternal relationship between the Roman and German state-ideas. . .young Germans enlisted in enormous numbers in the Roman legions. . .Even the Caesarean world empire was strongly influenced by German forces; in Gaul, as well as in the East against Pompey, Germans won the victories for the Roman eagles.[lxiv]
Note the direct link between Germany and Rome! A future book will explore the Hittite foundations of Rome and the true history of the European idea. Prince Loewenstein continues:
If only our voice could be joined with that of the Vatican, which today forms the one point of stability in the general madness. . .not 'Proletarians of all lands unite!' but 'Catholics of all lands unite!' is the challenge that must precede the approaching revolution in the West. This Protestantism was the real forerunner of atheism and is guilty of having forced millions out of the Christian community.[lxiv]
That inner clique wishes to have also a Catholic-dominated Europe. The Babylonian Mystery Religion will be discussed in the forthcoming book previously referred to. Let us continue with the words of Prince Loewenstein:
There is no antithesis between the Reich and what socialism affirms. . .but there is a sharp antithesis between the Reich and the negative side of socialism. . .[what is needed is] collaboration between the idea of the Reich and the ideas of traditional European Socialism.[lxiv]
Here he is clearly advocating the Christian Socialism of Catholic anti-communist zealots. He advocates a type of state feudalism where the coming European Reich will own all property within its bounds, however transforming them into "a 'public loan', which is entrusted to the individual only for his administration in the service of the whole.[lxiv] Here we see the Corporate State, a socialism accepted by both the left and the right. (It should be noted that Hitler, Mussolini and Peron were originally in many ways left-wing socialists, but later adapted tenents of their original beliefs to their ferocious nationalism).
A new, modern variation of Fascism is raising its ugly head. A new Babylonian-Roman-Fascist Empire which is structured on the religion, economy, finance, corporatism, symbolism and waring prowess of ancient Akkad, Babylon, Assyria, Hittite Empire and Roman Empire will arise! Please take warning before it's too late. Let me assure you that it is going to be much more dangerous to the Anglo-Saxon Powers than the Communist system could have ever dreamed of. It will be so prosperous and succesful, it will beguile many Finally, Prince Loewenstein exclaims:
. . .I call to mind the twelve men who wore the Germano-Roman Imperial crown and were my ancestors. . .A German Reich will arise to fulfill the history of all its centuries A German Reich, in whose golden eagles is alive the idea of social, political and spiritual liberty.[lxiv]
He believes that the Roman Eagle will be a major symbol of the coming Reich, together with the cross.[lxiv] I might add also the extended arm salute used by the Spanish Falangists, Italian Fascists, Germans of the Middle Ages and the Romans. Where did such a symbol originate?
THE BABYLONIAN ASSYRIAN HERITAGE
Migene Gonzalez-Wippler explains in The Complete Book of Spells, Ceremonies and Magic that it has a Babylonian origin:
The High Priestess [representing Selene, Isis, Diana, Artemis and Ishtar] moves behind the altar that faces the east quarter of the earth. Her right knee bent slightly, her left leg stretched behind her, she pushes her left arm back against her body and raises her right arm straight in front of her in a gesture similar to the fascist salute. This is the sign of Zelator, one of the degrees conferred on the magician during the first Initiation. The Nazis, who borrowed this sign and that of the swastika from ancient occult rituals, were reputed to be practitioners of black magic. . .The dagger's blade rests, between her palms, tip pointing upward, as she ends the sign of the cross. . .The swastika or truncated cross is one of the symbols representing Isis mourning for Osiris.[lxiv]
As with so many Roman-German symbols, all roads lead back to Babylon, and even the pre-Flood world. The Assyrians, too, practised this salute, raising their arms to indicate their "submission and loyalty to the king, a common theme in Assyrian glyptic art".[lxiv] The Bible reveals that Empires which succeeded the Assyrians actually continued their political heritage. For example, the king of Babylon, Nabopollasar, is actually called the king of Assyria in II Kings 23:29. This was shortly after the fall of Nineveh in 612 B.C. (cf. Jeremiah 50:17-19). Referring to the returned Jewish captives in the days of Zerrubabel we read of the following event in 515 B.C.:
And [they] kept the feast of unleavened bread seven days with joy: for the Lord had made them joyful, and turned the heart of the king of Assyria unto them, to strengthen their hands in the work of the house of God. . .(Ezra 6:22)
As Assyria had fallen a century previous to this, the only conclusion one can draw is that according to the context the reference here is clearly concerning Darius I who stepped into the heritage of the Assyrians after Babylon had fallen in 539 B.C. and their king [Nabonidus] captured some time later.
Writing in Ca. 788-696 B.C. Isaiah equates the Egyptians with the Assyrians (Isaiah 52:4, cf. Jeremiah 2:18). It seems that this passage refers to Exodus Chapter One and has little to do with the later Assyrian captivities which were not done "without a cause". Note also Ezekiel 31:3:
Behold, the Assyrian was a cedar in Lebanon with fair branches, and with a shadowing shroud, and of an high stature; and his top was among the thick boughs.
As the context is Egypt, Bullinger, in his Companion Bible , writes that "Ginsburg thinks this should read te-Ashshur (= a box tree) instead of 'Ashshur (= an Assyrian). There is no article; and Egypt is the subject here, not Assyria."[lxiv] However, God appears to be playing on words here and is hinting at the Assyrian influence in Egypt and vice-versa. Symbolically this passage also refers to Satan (Compare Zechariah 11:1-2, Isaiah 2:13; 10:33-34; Psalms 37:35; 27:6; Isaiah 41:19; 60:13). In Isaiah 7:18 the bee is a symbol of Assyria as it was of Napoleon!
THE MYSTERIOUS PRIEURE DE SION
I have before me a copy of The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail. The authors discuss the background philosophy and history of a little known secret society called the Prieure de Sion. Of course, it is one of many rival elite groups which sometimes fight, sometimes temporarily unite; have a few things in common, a lot in common, or nothing in common. Some are conservative, some liberal, others revolutionary, nationalist or internationalist etc. However there is no such thing as one united, conspiratorial group behind the scenes. Rather, there are a variety of groups which attempt to manipulate events in a very complex, divided world.
The authors attempt to prove that the Prieure de Sion claim to have their ancestry in Christ himself through such lineages as the Merovingian dynasty. Today they claim that at least a dozen families in Europe are direct descendants of the Merovingians including the houses of Habsburg-Lorraine, "present titular dukes of Lorraine and kings of Jerusalem",[lxiv] Plantard, Luxembourg, Montpezat, Montesquieu etc.:
In the late nineteenth century blue-prints were laid for a species of revived Holy League, which would have unified Catholic Europe Austria, France, Italy and Spain under the Hapsburgs. These plans were thwarted by the erratic and aggressive behaviour of both Germany and Russia. . .a revived and 'updated' Holy Roman Empire a kind of theocratic United States of Europe, ruled simultaneously by the Hapsburgs and by a radically reformed Church. This enterprise was thwarted by the First World War.[lxiv]
According to the authors, the plans remain the same: this same group is working on establishing a U.S. of Europe "A modern empire ruled by a dynasty descended from Jesus."[lxiv] They postulate that a future pope may also be a descendant of Jesus. This new Europe would be feudal in type[lxiv] and would challenge both America and Russia as world super-power. By its very nature it would tap into the collective psyche and needs of Europeans and thereby awaken their instant religious impulse.[lxiv] For Europeans desire a true leader, a "species of wise and benign spiritual figure, a 'priest- king.' "[lxiv] In a chilling last paragraph the authors state:
There are many devout Christians who do not hesitate to interpret the Apocalypse as nuclear holocaust. How might the advent of Jesus' lineal descendant be interpreted? To a receptive audience, it might be a kind of second coming.[lxiv]
Could a future European President/Emperor and also a future Pope both claim direct descent from Jesus? Of course, Christ never did marry nor have children. So who is this "Jesus" who they might claim descent from? Could it not be Simon Magus, that infamous founder of false Christianity? In 1986, the authors had published a sequel with the catchy title of The Messianic Legacy. Briefly, they discuss the "conversion" of Constantine, not to Christianity, but "the pagan sun god"[lxiv] and that much of early Christianity held Saturday as the Sabbath until Constantine's edict. Referring to Mithraism the authors concede that "Christianity as we know it, is in many respects actually closer to those pagan systems of belief than it is to its own Judaic origins."[lxiv]
The authors correctly see a linkage between the line of Zadok and the Early Church, known as the Nazareans and Ebionites. They note that just before the fall of Jerusalem, that Church may have fled, not to Pella, but to Sela (Petra).[lxiv] They were basically entrenched in Old Testament laws, such as the Sabbath, dietary laws etc,[lxiv] and that the early Celtic Church was the legitimate heirs of the Nazarenes, observing the Sabbath, Jewish Passover, and various other Old Testament laws.[lxiv]
The authors slam the British-Israel doctrine believed by tens of thousands.[lxiv] They reserve their greatest criticism for the Plain Truth magazine with its supposed anti-U.S. of Europe line.[lxiv] When interviewing the leader of the Prieure de Sion, they were bluntly told that
Everything was in place now. . .All the pieces were aligned on the chessboard in the requisite positions. Nothing could stop 'it' now he declared. . .a Merovingian restoration. . .a United States of Europe. . .a rapproachment had been reached with the Vatican. Rome would co-operate.[lxiv]
In addition, they were told that
. . .the Prieure de Sion seeks a United States of Europe partly as a bulwark against the Soviet imperium. . .a self-contained neutral power bloc capable of holding the balance of power between the Soviet Union and the United States. In this respect, the Prieure's position would appear to be almost identical to that of Pan Europa, the organization for European unity currently directed by Dr. Otto von Habsburg which, like the Kreisau Circle and others, uses as a symbol a Celtic cross.[lxiv]
They plan to eventually occupy the Holy Land and to restore the Temple treasure which they claim to have![lxiv] (Compare Daniel 8:11-14; 11:36; II Thessalonians 2:3-7; Revelation 13:15; Ezekiel 28:9, Matthew 24:15-16; Daniel 12:11).
Catholic prophecy itself claims that God will raise up a European Christian king who will sail to Palestine to restore Christianity there.[lxiv] He would come from European Frankish royal descent[lxiv] but would also have German and Austrian blood.[lxiv] He would be called Charles and help to restore the Church to full authority and "he will be called a 'Roman Emperor'."[lxiv] With him will be the Pope named Peter II or Peter the Roman.[lxiv] He will "recover the Kingdom of Jerusalem. He shall reunite the Eastern and the Western Churches"[lxiv] and he will be a descendant of the Capet family and be of royal blood.[lxiv] It should be remembered that the Capet family and descendants ruled France from 987 A.D. and violently persecuted any dissenters, especially the Waldensians.[lxiv] How precisely this prophecy parallels the claims and yet planned, future actions of the Prieure de Sion. Satan knows the future and reveals it to his prophets.
I have reviewed extensively the literature on the faction-fighting within the 3 or 4 rival groups in America, vying for ultimate control, with the liberal East Coast Elite constantly winning these battles (though they almost lost out 1980-85). Then we have the continental Europeans now beginning to shrug off American liberalism and internationalism after co-operating with Wall Street and London and being subservient to them for over 40 years. Yet in the interim they used the Americans to protect them from the Soviet Union and drained them of resources while they built in Europe a strong industrial base. The Americans have been used and do not seem to see it.[lxiv]
It would take a separate book to detail the Establishment Wars which have occurred, but the next few paragraphs will summarize a fraction of the material available.
Prolific author Dr. Antony C. Sutton and Patrick M. Wood in their Trilaterals Over Washington (Volume I) warns of a falling out between the American liberal/internationalist elite which "has embarked on its fiat money, anti-gold crusade, stifling its Western friends and subsidizing its Marxist enemies."[lxiv] and the Europeans As a result, Germany and France, have set up the European Monetary System (EMS) and European Currency Unit (ECU) which will ultimately be gold-backed and perhaps used as plastic money or "smart" cards with micro-chips recording transactions, personal data etc. Thus, the "ECU places the United States and the European Community in opposite camps and two competitive world reserve assets will ultimately emerge."[lxiv] ECU is a currency which is outside the control of the liberal American-dominated Trilaterals and in severe competition with them.[lxiv] Dr. Sutton predicts that a German-led Europe will win any financial war with America as she has twice the gold reserves of America.[lxiv] He warns that the Germans will no longer tolerate American-CFR-Trilateral arm-twisting.[lxiv] This raises the specter of American-West German bickering resulting in shaky stock exchanges crashing. Who will come out on top in such a financial war? Europe and their forthcoming allies, Japan!? I refer the reader also to Ernest Mandel's work Europe Vs America for further background reading on the problem this from an alternative socialist angle. Also Mary Kaldor's The Disintegrating West. The back cover of the book reads "Are we to see a war within the West in our lifetime? For this is the one appalling possibility that Mary Kaldor suggests in this penetrating study of international relations."
Let us take a quick peek inside the pages of the book and see what Mary Kaldor predicts in her own words:
In its very creation, in other words, a European government will be anti-American. . .for a future European government is likely to be authoritarian and militaristic [and] is likely to be dominated by West Germany. . .[similar to the] government of Bismarck. . .a moderate variant of fascism.[lxiv]
On the following pages she foresaw the increasing divisions between Europe and America which she predicted would inevitably lead to war. She goes on to predict that the Europeans will possess a nuclear force.
The high probability that at least one warhead could reach its destination [the USA] in the event of nuclear attack. . .might encourage the Europeans to believe in the credibility of their deterrent.[lxiv]
Peter Jay writing in The Economist in 1980 predicted a falling-out between Europe and America and their consequent decoupling. He foresees a natural rivalry between America and Europe with the Europeans "taking on" the Americans industrially, in international trade, economically and financially and eventually diplomatically and politically. Under the sub-heading of "The Next European Reich" he foresees a new European nationalism which is emerging. He feels that in another economic depression, European workers will opt for central economic planning that will push European leaders into implementing a great new deal for Europe (i.e. Socialism, European-style).
But they will have achieved the transference of effective power to the centre; and control of foreign and military policies will soon follow. . .The continental tradition in politics is not deeply democratic, tending rather to the extremes of demagoguery and authoritarianism. Even Hitler started by getting himself elected. . .To be sure this will be bad for the United States. . .if in its search for momentum. . .a vehicle for the rebirth of nationalism in Europe on a superpower scale, a fetish which distracts our attention from the inescapable realities of our security and prosperity, then the curse of European history death and destruction for the sake of vain glory will be upon us again [i.e. World War Three with Europe vs. America!].[lxiv]
Someone as high in European elitist circles as Peter Jay should know what he is talking about! Immediately under his final statement warning of a possible war between Europe and America (above), he has a photograph of a war scene from World War One with the statement "Never Again, 1914-1918"! See also his incredible new book Apocalypse 2000.
Will a U.S. of Europe an Assyro-Babylonian-Roman-Holy Germanic-Fascist-Nazi Kingdom arise which will eventually declare war on America? Another group divided between the Americans and British on the one hand and Europeans on the other is the Bilderberger group. Julian Snyder writes this of them:
Seen from a Bilderberg [European wing] point of view, such a development [oil embargoes, etc.] would give the West a scapegoat in the form of Saudi Arabia [or rather Egypt see Daniel 11:40-43], providing an excuse for deflating the world economy, reconfiscating gold, and possibly reoccupying the oil fields.[lxiv]
In a letter to someone Dr. Antony Sutton wrote:
From the facts you present it seems we agree that Europe will become a united socialist federation co-operating with a Soviet Russia. This ultimately must isolate the United States. My guess is that the real challenge will come after the year 2000. It will pose a weakened United States versus the rest of the world. A sad but seemingly inevitable fate.
Let us now take a look into the pages of God's Word and see what the great God of the universe has to say about the coming German and European menace.
The German poet, Heinrich Heine, wrote in the mid eighteenth century
the following chilling message concerning a future German leader:
[he will]...be terrible because he will appear in alliance with the primitive powers of nature, able to evoke the demonic energies of old German Pantheism - doing which there will awake in him that Battle-madness which we find among the ancient Teutonic races who fought neither to kill nor conquer, but for the very love of fighting itself.
...then will come crashing and roaring forth the wild madness fo the old champions, the insane berserker rage, of which Northern poets say and sing ... The old stone gods will rise from long forgotten ruin, and rub the dust of a thousand years from their eyes, and Thor, leaping to life, with his giant hammer, will smash the Gothic cathedrals.
German thunder is indeed German, and not in a hurry, and it comes rolling slowly onward; but it will, and when ye hear the crash as naught crashed before in the whole history of the world, then know that der Deutsche Donner, our German Thunder, has at last hit the mark ... There will be played in Germany a drama compared to which the French Revolution will be only an innocent child.
But once the blood again begins coursing in the veins of the German people, once they again feel their heart beating, no longer will they listen to the pious chatter of the Bavarian hypocrites, or to the mystic murmers of the Swabian imbeciles; their ear will only hear the great voice of one man.
Who is this man?
He is the man whom the German people awaits, the man who will turn to them their lives and their happiness - the happiness and the life they have so longed for in their dreams. How much longer will you wait - you whom our old people have prophesied with burning desire - you for whom youth waits with so much impatience - you who carry the divine sceptre of liberty, and the imperial crown with the cross?"

THE FUTURE OF GERMANY
The Bible reveals that there is soon coming a German-led United States of Europe, a National European Socialist Empire. The modern Assyrians are not going to make the same stupid mistakes as their predecessors. The Fourth Reich will be a military juggernaut a frankenstein monster which will plot out a terrible plan for world domination. Allied with them, but under their domination will be various Latin, Canaanite and Slavic nations. Let us cautiously peer into the pages of God's word, permitting it to teach us concerning the prophecies about the Assyrians in the last days.
ISAIAH CHAPTER TEN
The aforementioned chapter presents an incredible story of end-time events in the history of modern Germany. What occurred to ancient nations such as Assyria are only forerunners of their yet to be completely fulfilled prophecies. Prophecies concerning ancient nations have only been partially fulfilled. Let Isaiah now warn us beginning verse five:
5. O, Assyria! the rod of Mine anger, And the staff in their hand is Mine indignation [see Lamentations 3:1; Nahum 2:1].
6. I will send him against an hypocritical nation [Israel], and against the people of my wrath will I give him charge [see Numbers 24:22].
7. . .it is in his heart [his mind, nature, instincts, or racial memory] to destroy and cut off nations not a few [see Numbers 24:22].
Isaiah chapter ten presents a startling picture of the German capacity to "destroy and cut off" (Compare Revelation 9:11). Let Isaiah, God's great prophet continue:
8. For he saith, Are not my princes altogether Kings?
The Hebrew for princes is "Sar", which appears to be related to the words, Caesar, Tsar or Czar and Kaiser! Notice, they consider their princes to be like kings a clear reference to their master-race theory. Indeed "Sar" can quite easily be translated as "Master"![lxiv] As a result of their superiority complex, God roars:
. . .I will punish the fruit of the stout [proud, arrogant] heart of the King of Assyria [future leader of Germany and U.S. of Europe], and the glory of his high looks.
12-13. For he saith, By the strength of my hand I have done it, and by my wisdom; For I am prudent [R.S.V. "have understanding." Compare Daniel 8:23; 11:21]: And I have removed the bounds of the people [compare Daniel 8:24], And have put down the inhabitants [of Israel] like a valiant man [R.S.V. "bull"].
Such Arrogance! While many nations suffer from an inferiority complex, some have a complex of the opposite extreme superiority. This is not because of a feeling of inferiority in reverse clearly it is due to their pride in their talents, successes and good looks, and have let it go to their heads. In verse fifteen God likens the Assyrians to an axe, saw, rod and staff. These iron implements were used by the Assyrians anciently in their pursuit of world conquest. They were the first to develop a great iron technology for military purposes (chariots, armor, weapons). Is it mere coincidence that Germany is famous for its great iron industry (especially Krupps), its iron cross and Iron Chancellor (Bismark)? Bismark, incidentally, is historically renowned for his statement on "blood and iron" in a speech before the Prussian Chamber on January 28, 1886. What he meant was that by the spillage of blood and the use of weapons of iron, Germany could fulfill her divine mission to lead the world.
Accordingly, God will send the hordes of Asia against Germany (verses 16-17; see also Nahum 1:10) and "the trees of his forest shall be few, that a child may write them" (verse 19). The beautiful Bavarian Black Forest, pride of Germany and national symbol of "blood and soil," will be almost utterly destroyed. Isaiah chapter seven too speaks of the coming German menace (verses 17-19). He says:
20. In the same day shall the Lord shave with a razor that is hired, namely by them beyond the river, by the King of Assyria.
This ties in with Ezekiel's prophecy where God also likens Assyria to a razor:
. . .take thee a barber's razor, and cause it to pass upon thine head and upon thy beard: then take thee balances to weigh, and divide the hair (5:1).
2. Thou shalt burn with fire a third part in the midst of the city, when the days of the siege are fulfilled: And thou shalt take a third part, and smite about it with a knife: and a third part thou shalt scatter in the wind; and I will draw out a sword after them.
Those Israelites will be taken captive to Germany and other places (Isaiah 11:11, 16; Zechariah 10:10; Numbers 24:22). It is due to their backsliding that they would be taken into captivity (Jeremiah 2:18-19, 36-37; Ezekiel 23:9; Jeremiah 50:17-18).
Notice: God would use Assyria to utterly destroy Israel, taking one third of them into captivity. Assyria would be a powerful instrument in God's hand. Isaiah chapter eight elucidates upon this future German invasion:
Now therefore, behold, the Lord bringeth up upon them the waters of the river [compare Revelation 12:15; Daniel 11:40b, 22; Isaiah 28:2] strong and many [compare Joel 2:2; Jeremiah 5:15] even the king of Assyria, and all his glory: And he shall come up over all his channels, and go over all his banks [cf. Daniel 8:16; 12:5-8].
7-8. And he shall pass through Judah; he shall overflow and go over, he shall reach even to the neck.
Here we have clear reference to the future invasion of North Africa and the Holy Land by the German-led U.S. of Europe (Daniel 11:40-43; Ezekiel 4:3; Luke 21:20; Matthew 24:15; Daniel 12:11).
Through his faithful prophet Joel, God warns us of the coming invasion in chapter two of his prophecy:
1-2. The day of the Lord cometh. . .A day of darkness and of gloominess, A day of clouds and of thick darkness. . .A great people and a strong.
Compare that verse with 1:6; Isaiah 8:7-8; 28:2; Jeremiah 5:15. Notice that they are called "strong," for "Asshur" means strong! Here we have a very strong, disciplined people whom God uses to punish the House of Israel.
3. A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: The land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.
From this scripture we can ascertain that those brutal armies will have weapons of fire which leave the area behind them aflame and devastated. These are weapons perhaps, which are being, or are yet to be invented. Like locusts they turn a pleasant land into a wilderness. How like the Assyrians, Scythians, Huns; and the Germans of World War One who cut down the fruit trees in northern France.
4. The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run.
These are not literal horses. Note, the verse says "as. . .horses. . . as horsemen." This links the verse and those symbolic "horsemen" to the First Woe of the Book of Revelation (9:1-11). The First Woe is a prophecy of the soon-to-arise European military juggernaut which arises out of the "abyss" a condition of temporary political and military abeyance (in this case between World Wars One/Two and Three).
5. Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap [war machinery] like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble. . ..
Compare that with Revelation 9:9 and Nahum 2:3-4. In the following verse Joel continues:
6. Before their face the people [enemy nations] shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness [paleness].
Knowing the terrible reputation of those German-led European armies, enemy nations lying in their way will be terrified of their conquest.
7. They shall run like mighty men of war [Kar-men, Gar-men or German means "men of war"!]; And they shall march every one on his ways [how like the East Germans during the amazing spontaneous uprisings against Honecher. As commentator after commentator gasped, they had no leader, yet they marched in order with amazing self-discipline and self-control], and they shall not break their ranks.
Surely we have reference here to German discipline, orderliness and efficiency!
In verse fifteen God calls them His army. Why? Because He sends them to do His will. Compare that verse with Isaiah 10:5, 12-15. Continue verse twenty, first part: But I will remove far off from you [Israel] the Northern Army.
Notice too Daniel 11:40; Jeremiah 46:24; 6:22-23. These are men, not literal locusts, although it could well be dual. "Locusts do not come from the north. The armies of Revelation 9, and Daniel 11 do", claims Bullinger.[lxiv]
Finally in verse twenty five God promises:
And I will restore to you [Israel] the years that the locusts hath eaten. . .My great army which I sent among you.
The book of Nahum which clearly predicted the fall of Nineveh, capital of ancient Assyria, also likened the Assyrians to locusts:
. . .make thyself many as the cankerworm, make thyself many as the locusts. . .Thy crowned are as the locusts, and thy captains as the grasshoppers. . .(3:15, 17; compare Revelation 9:7-9).
What an apt description for as we have seen in earlier chapters, the Assyrians, Huns and Scythians were constantly compared to locusts in history.
STEPS TOWARDS WORLD DOMINATION
In a future book the author will detail the historical roots of the soon-to-arise United States of Europe, but this may be some years away. It would suffice at this time for the reader to review the following scriptures: Revelation 13,17,18; Isaiah 13,14,21,47,48; Jeremiah 50,51; Ezekiel 27,28. Here prophecy names the future European fascistic empire as Babylon and Tyre.
Before our very eyes, we see materializing a terrible form a disgusting specter a Frankenstein Monster a Military Juggernaut. This powerful fascist U.S. of Europe will be the culmination of all of Satan's attempts to thwart God's plan. It will be the tenth horn and seventh head of the Beast (Revelation 17:9-10; 13:1-3; Daniel 7:7) i.e. the final resurrection of the Roman successions and Holy Roman Empire.
It will also possess characteristics more closely Babylonian in quality with incredible material success than the other previous revivals. From a condition of underground planning, its arising will be almost unbelievable (Revelation 17:8; 9:1-2,11). God revealed through Daniel that the resurrection of Babylonianism to full bloom would not be permitted for 2520 years (Daniel 4:15,26; 5:24-31). This was typed by Nebuchadnezzar's seven years of madness (Daniel 4:31-34).
This aspect or branch of Babylonianism would grow again in the end-time, revealing the most potent and successful empire the world has ever seen. Its glory, wealth and power will startle the world (Revelation 13:3-4). It will certainly be formed and operative for several years prior to its declaration of war on its enemies. But when? Not before the 2520 years of withholding its resurrection are up! When do we count the 2520 years from? While the city of Babylon itself fell on October 16, 539 B.C., and the entire nation was completely conquered by 537 B.C., its supreme king, Nabonidus was away campaigning in Arabia at that time and apparently was captured some time later.[lxiv]
Europe will emerge as the new world super-power and the greatest trading bloc with the largest merchant fleet in history. This new Babylon with all its modern technology will fall however, as we shall see. (Its prototype, Babylon, had a defensive wall 300 feet high, 30 feet deep and 85 feet wide, yet it fell.) What is most interesting is that the difference in years between the Crash of '29 and that of '87 was fifty eight years "this factor is twenty nine plus twenty nine and signifies Expectancy of Judgement doubled" writes Rand, author of The Language of Numbers.[lxiv]
The U.S.A. would have become a second-rate power and Russia and her allies would be no match for Europe. Like Assyria of old whose function it was to protect the civilized world from the threats of the Asiatics to the East[lxiv] and Germany during the Middle Ages which considered itself as "God's chosen people"[lxiv] protecting Europe against the golden hordes, so the coming German- dominated U.S. of Europe will find itself in a similar role. It shall stand between East and West; North and South, - and the world will celebrate "peace in our time". The Anglo-Saxon nations in particular will be lulled into a sense of security, thinking that we have "peace in our time" (I Thessalonians 5:13; Jeremiah 6:13-15, 22; Ezekiel 13:2,10-13; Isaiah 28:15-18; Daniel 8:25; 11:24). Britain in particular will make the biggest faux pas of its history. Hosea blasts Ephraim (the English peoples):
When Ephraim saw his sickness. . .and Judah [certain Highlander and Ulster Scots. The author shall dwell on Scottish identity in a future book] saw his wound, then went Ephraim [as leader of the British tribes] to the Assyrian, and sent to King Jareb [future German leader]: yet could he not heal you, nor cure you of your wound (5:13).
It appears from this scripture that Britain will be in such economic, financial, social and moral straits that she shall seek help from German-led Europe. What will Europe do? How shall she respond to Britain's plea? Initially after signing an agreement with Britain (and North America?) it will turn on her (Isaiah 33:1,7-8). The following verse reveals this treacherous double-cross:
For I will be unto Ephraim as a lion, and as a young lion to the House of Judah: I, even I, will tear and go away; I will take away, and none shall rescue him. I will go away and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offense, and seek My face: in their affliction they will seek me early (5:14-15).
Notice God likens the Assyrians to wild, ferocious lions. Other scriptures do likewise: Jeremiah 2:14-15,18; 4:7; 50:17; Ezekiel 38:13; Nahum 2:8-12; Joel 1:6; Zechariah 11:3. See also I Peter 5:8. Other verses on this future "covenant" between the House of Israel and Europe are: Hosea 10:6; 12:1; 14:3; Isaiah 28:1-3,15,18; Daniel 11:22; Ezekiel 16:28. No wonder God slams Israel for having political and military "lovers" she should be depending on her God, not man! (Isaiah 30:1-9; 31:1-3) I suggest the reader look up the following verses on these "lovers" (Gentile allies) of Israel: Jeremiah 2:36-37; 4:30; 22:20-22; 30:14; Lamentations 1:2,19; Ezekiel 18:33-37; 23:5-9,22; Hosea 2:5-13; 8:9.
THE GREATEST DOUBLE-CROSS IN WORLD HISTORY!
It is not in the mind of Germans or Europeans today to double-cross or attack the Anglo-Saxon-Keltic nations. This will not occur until some time after the formation of a National European Socialist Holy Roman Empire (Isaiah 10:7). God through His prophet Hosea roars:
Ephraim also is like a silly dove without heart: they call to Egypt, they go to Assyria (7:11). For they are gone up to Assyria, a wild ass alone by himself: Ephraim hath hired lovers. Yea, though they have hired among the nations, now will I gather them, and they shall sorrow a little for the burden of the king of princes (8:9-10). (Compare Isaiah 10:3).
The last part of verse ten is very interesting. The Hebrew for "sorrow" is "woe" or "writhing" in agony due to enslavement. They are writhing "a little for the burden" of Tribulation. Again, the Hebrew for "a little" means in a little time, speedily or suddenly. Very suddenly Britain will be plunged into the Great Tribulation:
For when they say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; And they shall not escape (I Thessalonians 5:3).
Ephraim and the tribes of Israel (not excluding the USA) will be lulled into a false sense of security, possibly believing that their New World Order of One World Race, One World Religion and One World Capitalist Ecomomic Free Trading System would bring world peace. Instead, the Europeans also believe in a New World Order...but one which is radically defferent to the Anglo-Saxon Powers. Theirs is a Fascist-type of system endearing so-called Christianity to the State, thus reviving the Holy Roman Empire. It is completely different and opposed to the Anglo-Saxon version of a New World Order in such fundamentals as race, religion, finance, economics, social attitudes, personal liberties etc.
Dear reader, maybe some do not believe these astounding prophecies and SCOFF! (II Peters 3:3-4; Jude 18; Jeremiah 20:8). The scoffers and mockers who do not see the signs of the times will be taken unawares. Regardless of scoffing, these "things. . .must shortly [Greek is speedily, suddenly, quickly] come to pass" (Revelation 1:1). Jeremiah, after preaching for some twenty-five years, wondered how long things would drag on for before the prophecies were fulfilled (12:1-7; 17:15-18; 20:7-11). Don't we do the same thing? Take comfort from Ezekiel:
Son of man, what is the proverb that ye have in the land of Israel, saying, The days are prolonged and every vision faileth?. . . Therefore say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; There shall none of My words be prolonged any more, but the word which I have spoken shall be done, saith the Lord God (12:22,28).
In other words there will be no more delay or holding up of world events (Ezekiel 12:25; Revelation 10:6; Daniel 12:9; Luke 18:7; Jeremiah 30:24). Habakkuk says much the same:
. . .the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry (2:3).
God instructs us to wait and be patient through Habakkuk (compare Revelation 3:10):
Shall they not rise up suddenly that shall bite thee, and awake that shall vex thee, and thou shalt be for booties unto them? (2:7).
Other verses concerning the sudden destruction on the earth may be found in: Isaiah 30:13; 33:14; 60:22; Joel 2:9; Luke 17:34-37.
Amos, too, warns of the sudden turn-about in world conditions in the last days:
. . .Lord is his name: That makes destruction to come suddenly to flash upon the strong [original Hebrew], so that the spoiled shall come against the fortress (5:8-9) [See 9:10, where the Hebrew for "prevent" means surprise.].
Finally, Isaiah speaks of this surprising and quick fulfillment of prophecy which will catch the scoffers and mockers unaware, but not God's people:
I have declared the former things from the beginning; and they went forth out of My mouth, and I showed them; I did them suddenly, and they came to pass (48:3).
Notice how many times God warns us of sudden destruction. The Anglo-Saxon-Keltic nations will be enormously surprised when a U.S. of Europe which appeared, initially, to be neutral playing its part between the East and the West, suddenly turns nasty. Anti-American broadcasts, trade wars, sanctions, condemnations of their decadence etc. will flower when Europe sees a weakened North America as a ripened plum, ready for the plucking. God condemns the Anglo-Saxon-Keltic-Nordic nations for making alliances with the continental Europeans (Ezekiel 16:28; 23:5-9,12).
Therefore. . .thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will raise up thy lovers [allies] against thee, from whom thy mind is alienated, and I will bring them against thee on every side (23:22).
In verse 9 he explains that these allies are principally the Assyrians. Note that Israel became alienated or disgusted with them. A falling-out between the North Americans and British on one hand, and the National European Socialists on the other hand will occur, much to the sorrow of the Anglo-Saxon peoples and their descendants around the world. In verse twenty-three Ezekiel continues, naming the "lovers" of Israel:
The Babylonians, and all the Chaldeans [Southern and Central Italians], Pekod, and Shoa, and Koa, and all the Assyrians with them: all of them desirable young men, captains and rulers, great lords and renowned, all of them riding upon horses (Ezekiel 23:23).
The Aramaeans were probably joined with the Assyrians against Israel anciently.[lxiv] The Aramaeans are located in northwest Germany, northeast Austria and pocketed in northern Spain and northern Italy today. Pekod, referred to by Ezekiel may in fact be the Puqudu Aramaean tribe.[lxiv] The Koa may have been the Kutu tribe from Syria[lxiv] or the Qutu (Quadians?), while the Shoa may have been the Sutu or Su[lxiv] who may have become known as the Sugambri tribe. Now notice what prophecy says concerning this shocking double-cross:
And they shall come against thee with chariots, wagons, and wheels, and with an assembly of people, which shall set against thee buckler and shield and helmet round about. . .Thou shalt be filled with drunkenness and sorrow, with the cup of astonishment [it shall take them by surprise suddenly!] and desolation (verses 24,33).
What occurred to Israel, Judah and Jerusalem in the Old Testament are mere types of a far worse calamity yet future. Jeremiah warns:
She weepeth sore in the night, and her tears are on her cheeks: among all her lovers she has none to comfort her: all her friends have dealt treacherously with her, they are become her enemies (Lamentations 1:2,19).
Similarly, Jeremiah complains loudly in his book:
And when thou art spoiled, what wilt thou do? Though thou clothest thyself with crimson. . .in vain shalt thou make thyself fair; thy lovers will despise thee, they will seek thy life (4:30).
Finally, Ezekiel explains who these "lovers" actually are:
Thou has played the whore also with the Assyrians [Germany]. . .Behold I will gather all thy lovers, with whom thou hast taken pleasure, and all them that thou hast loved, with all them that thou hast hated; I will even gather them round about against thee, and will uncover thy nakedness unto them, that they may see all thy nakedness (16:28,37).
Yes, the Anglo-Saxon peoples will be destroyed and enslaved by her "lovers", principally Germany. Do we dare ignore this warning by God? Assyria will attempt once and for all to destroy the direct descendants of his twin brother Arphaxad (through Israel. ie the Anglo-Saxon-Kelts). But why? The age old resentment and envy that God had given the birthright blessing in place of Elam to Arphaxad, and not to himself (Assur) that God chose that line, and not Assur's is still heaped up in the Assyrian heart. Let there be no mistake: the German descendants of Assur are an extremely intelligent and handsome people who resemble the descendants of Arphaxad and Aram physically more so than any other nation. Their sense of order, discipline and cleanliness is superb and world-famous. But so is their warrior-image. God chose Arphaxad because he had less of the military spirit and more leadership abilities. THE ASSYRIANS HAVE NEVER FORGOTTEN THIS and it lurks in their "racial memory" to this day. Consequently they wish to overthrow Arphaxad and lead the world with their militaristic style, rather than in God's way and take the Birthright lands of North America and the British Isles from the Anglo-Saxon-Kelts!
THE GREAT TRIBULATION
Daniel predicted centuries ago that Europe would invade the Middle East (Daniel 11), and especially the "King of the South" (Egypt, Ethiopia, Sudan). However, she would have certain allies in the Middle East:
Keep not thou silence, O God:. . .For lo, Thine enemies make a tumult. . .They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel, may be no more in remembrance. . .They are confederate against thee: The tabernacles of Edom, [modern Turkey and possibly their relatives, the Turkic peoples of Central Asia], and the Ishmaelites [Saudi Arabia]; of Moab [Jordan see Daniel 11:41], and the Hagarenes [Arabs in Saudi Arabia]; Gebal [in Lebanon], and Ammon [Jordan] and Amalek; the Philistines [Berbers?] with the inhabitants of Tyre [southern Italy today]; Assur [Germany] also is joined with them: they have helpen the children of Lot. Selah (Psalms 83:1-8).
Did you notice that German-led Europe in accordance with this prophecy, is in some kind of alliance with the non-North African Arabs? However, the Mizramites (Egypt), the Phutites (translated as "Libyans" the Africans) and Cushites (Ethiopia, Somalia, southern Sudan, and perhaps southern India) are their enemies in this race war and worthy of invasion. Europe will react strongly to the moves towards a New World Order with a New Age Religion and One World Dark Brown Race. She will be tired of the Africanisation of Europe encouraged by certain circles in the USA and Britain. So, this invasion is a "sign" to the Anglo- Saxon-Kelts of an invasion thirty days later (see Ezekiel 4:1-3; Daniel 12:11; Matthew 12:15-21).
The Assyrians will lead the European forces (Isaiah 23:13) as they invade Egypt, and many will die on the battle-field (Ezekiel 32:22). They are said to be part of the end-time "Tyre" in Ezekiel (i.e. Babylon or the coming U.S. of Europe, Ezekiel 27:23). With them are Haran (the Hurrians), Canneh (Babylonians), Sheba (the Swabians) and Chilmad (Babylonians?).[lxiv] Also in the service of Tyre is Dedan (the Prussians) (verse 15). Dedan also includes the descendants of Letushim (Genesis 25:3) the modern-day Lithuanians and Latvians. It should come as no surprise to us if the Baltic States are freed from Soviet domination and become partners of the coming National European Socialist Kingdom a U.S. of Europe. [Authors note: See also my book True Origins of the Peoples of Eastern Europe. for a full explanation on the origins of these people]. Eventually Europe, led by the Dedanite Prussians on this occasion will double-cross their Saudi-Arabian allies and smite them (Isaiah 21:13). Within thirty days of the Middle-Eastern excursion, Europe will turn full fury against the Anglo-Saxon nations. Notice what will happen to them:
Thus saith the Lord; Behold, I am against thee, and will draw forth My sword out of his sheath, and will cut off from thee the righteous and the wicked (Ezekiel 21:3, 9-14).
The Lord God has sworn by His holiness, that, lo, the days shall come upon you, that He will take you [Israel] away with hooks, and your posterity with fishhooks (Amos 4:2).
Did you know that that literally occurred thousands of years ago? It will happen again once more! For in the Assyrian monuments one may see the captives with hooks in their noses (see Ezekiel 29:4; II Chronicles 33:11). Such unbelievable cruelty will become the order of the day yes, in this twentieth century! Yes, we are capable of treating others like dirt! The human mentality has certainly not changed these many centuries. Jeremiah also mentions it:
Our necks are under persecution: we labour, and have no rest. We have given the hand to the Egyptians, and to the Assyrians, to be satisfied with bread. . .They ravished the women in Zion [Israel]. . .Princes are hanged by their hand. . .They took the young men to grind, and the children fell under the wood. . .(Lamentations 5:5-6,11-13; see Jeremiah 2:18-19).
Hosea, speaking of Ephraim (the English) cries out:
They shall not dwell in the Lord's land; but Ephraim shall return to Egypt [as slaves] and they shall eat unclean things in Assyria (9:3).
German-led Europe will have such super space technology ("star wars") that they will easily knock-out North America and the British Isles. They will slyly acquire Western space technology and then use it against Britain and America. Like the Pharisees of old, those with a sly mentality lie in wait seeking whom they may devour (I Peter 5:8; Job 1:7; Mark 3:2; Jeremiah 9:4; 5:26; Micah 7:5-6; Psalm 55:12-14, 21; 69:8-12). Of these pharisees who evilly misinterpret Matthew 10:16, claiming that it means one can lie in wait to poison and devour others, Christ sends a terrible rebuke:
Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell (Matthew 23:33).
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do, he was a murderer [including character assassinations and slander, compare John 16:2; Matthew 10:16-22 referring to spiritual death] from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it (John 8:44).
What an indictment! What a stern rebuke! Today evil pharaseeism is still around, both spiritually and politically. Politically it is about to make a swift come-back in Europe. Jeremiah warns of the space technology of Europe (51:53). It will be used in the most horrible pharisaical fashion possible: Moses predicted that in the yet future Tribulation, Israelites will be "driven unto the outmost parts of heaven" (Deuteronomy 30:4), while Christ said that true Christians will, in the resurrection, be gathered "from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other" (Matthew 24:31). No doubt, like the horrific human experiments performed by Nazi scientists, the scientists of the coming National European Socialist Empire will perform terrible experiments on Israelites and lukewarm Christians (termed Laodiceans in Revelation 3:14-22) experiments which may only be performed under the weightless conditions of space. Unbelievable experiments will to be performed on Anglo-Saxon-Kelts. Note what scientists are telling us:
In addition, weapons of psychic and weather warfare will be unleashed upon the British and Americans[lxiv]. Perhaps anti-gravity flying aircraft (commonly called UFO's) super weapons of destruction will also be employed. I have extensive literature indicating that they are likely to be man-made and originally invented by the Nazis[lxiv] Yes, Europe will come like a "whirlwind" (anti-gravity electric aircraft?) against her enemies (Daniel 11:40; Isaiah 5:28; Jeremiah 4:13; Hebrews 3:14; Jeremiah 23:19).
THE FINAL SHOWDOWN!
A final showdown is coming between Germany and Russia. These age-old foes will tear at each other's throats in the most shocking and bitter hate-filled race war in world history. Germany will have her European and South American allies with her. Russia will have the nations of Asia on her side. Each will be leading other nations into stage three of World War Three (stage one was the invasion of the Middle East by Europe, followed by stage two their conquest of the Anglo-Saxon-Kelts as we have seen).
In the Middle Ages the Germans, led by the weird and sinister Teutonic Knights of darkness invaded Russia. Napoleon, leading various European armies (including German) invaded Russia, and in World War One the Central Powers invaded the Baltic regions and Ukraine, occupying an area as vast as Hitler did in World War Two. Four invasions of Russia have occurred and yet will again! It should come as no surprise that this ingrained love-hate relationship between Russians and Germans has its roots in the ancient Middle East. It is so much a part of their "racial memory" that it is a constituent part of their human nature. For the Assyrians and Mushki were regarded as "natural" enemies throughout their history[lxiv] They were each other's major enemy notes Saggs in his celebrated work The Might that was Assyria[lxiv].
Germany will invade Russia one more time (the First Woe of Revelation 9 pictures this), making such inroads, perhaps up to the Urals, that the Russians would have to call on nuclear weapons and their eastern allies as a final resort. The nations will go mad with bitter hatred for each other. This will be the culmination of race war!
We know that German led Europe will invade Ethiopia (Daniel 11:4,36). The Hebrew here is Cush and implies not only East Africa but India as well! How like the Aryan, Assyrian, Persian and Greek attempts to conquer India. The European/Roman Empire invasions will not be welcomed by the invaded:
But tidings [news] out of the east [China, India, etc.] and out of the north [Russia] shall trouble him [the Beast]: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to take away many (Daniel 11:44).
Memories of the Mongol golden hordes devastating Europe in the Middle Ages and the cruelty of the Russians in their invasion of Germany in World War Two will come flooding back into the memories of Europe. As God says in the book of Psalms: "Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech" (Psalms 120:5). That was a term used in Biblical days like we use the terms Vandals, Huns or Philistines for merciless, cruel peoples and nations. Thus comes the counter-attack (the second Woe of Revelation 9 stage four of World War Three). Notice what John says of this second woe:
Loose the four angels [which may be demons, see II Peter 2:4] which are bound in the great river Euphrates [Iraq]. (See Revelation 7:1; Zechariah 6:1-2; 9:14).
How many are in this army from the east which shall invade Europe and challenge her armies in the Middle east?: Two hundred million! (Revelation 9:15; 16:12). This could only refer to the combined armies of China, India, Russia and southeast Asia. Isaiah refers to them coming against modern Babylon/Europe (Isaiah 21:2-4; 13:12-18). Jeremiah, too, explains:
For out of the north country cometh up a nation against her, which shall make her land desolate. . .an assembly of great nations from the north country [Russia and her allies]: and they shall set themselves in array against her. . .Behold, a people shall come from the north, and a great nation, and many kings shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth [China, Far East]. They shall hold the bow and the lance: they are cruel, and will not show mercy. . .The King of Babylon hath heard the report of them [compare Daniel 11:44] (50:3,9,41-43).
In chapter fifty-one Jeremiah continues:
11. Make bright the arrows [rockets?]; gather the shields [defense systems]: the Lord hath raised up the spirit of the kings of the Medes: for His desire is against Babylon, to destroy it; because it is the vengeance of the Lord, the vengeance of His temple [i.e. the persecuted and martyred of His Church in the Tribulation]. (See Revelation 11:2; 18:20; Jeremiah 50:28; Lamentations 2:7; 4:22).
Notice that the Medes come up against Modern Babylon. Today the peoples who constituted the empire of the Medes may be found in western Russia, specifically the Ukraine and Volhynia. This is proven in my book True Origins of the Peoples of Eastern Europe. In verses twenty-seven and twenty-eight he declares:
Set ye up a standard in the land, blow the trumpet among the nations, prepare the nations against her, call together against her the kingdoms of Ararat [Georgia, Armenia], Minni [Iran?] and Ashchenaz [southeast Asia]. . .Prepare against her the nations with the kings of the Medes, the captains thereof, and all the rulers thereof, and all the land of his dominion.
Notice, it is the rulers of Russia which shall marshal together the eastern hordes to attack and destroy Europe Germany in particular (Zephaniah 2:13; Nahum 3:1-5; Micah 5:5-6; 7:12-13). With them is Kittim (Numbers 24:24; Daniel 11:30). Today Kittim dwells in northeast China! The final conflict will be at the famous Armageddon where the Beast's armies will be in its death throes with the East (Revelation 16:16). Here the powers of Assyrian led Europe and the Russian-led Orient will temporarily form a truce to battle an invader from outer space Jesus Christ. However, he will easily defeat them and slaughter anyone who dares exalt himself to stand in His way.
CHRIST WILL SMASH ASSYRIAN MILITARISM!
Christ will use the East to devastate Germany to such an extent that even the Black Forest will be flattened (Isaiah 10:18). Look what Isaiah says:
As yet shall he [the Assyrian] remain at Nob that day: he shall shake his hand against the mount of the daughter of Zion, the hill of Jerusalem [the True Church]. Behold. . .the Lord of Hosts, shall lop the bough with terror: and the high ones of stature shall be hewn down, and the haughty shall be humbled (10:32-33).
Germany will be broken! God will humble them (and all nations) like never before! Watch out Germany, God says what He means and means what He says! The Assyrian yoke burden on the western world will at last be broken (See Zechariah 10:11; Isaiah 10:24-27). God roars angrily:
. . .I will break the Assyrian in My land [the Holy Land], and upon My mountains tread him under foot (14:25a).
Notice Christ will tread them underfoot, disintegrating their ferocious, war-mentality forever. Turn now to the fast-moving, pulsating chapters thirty and thirty one of Isaiah and see with your own eyes what God Almighty portends for the future of the coming Assyrian Beast leader of Europe. In chapter thirty one verses twenty five to twenty six, Isaiah speaks of the Day of the Lord (see Revelation 16:8) during which God will heal the "stroke" of His people. Here he speaks of the beating of Israel by the Assyrian rod (verse 31; 10:5) and how He will deliver them:
For through the voice of the Lord shall the Assyrian be beaten down, which smote with a rod.
And in every place where the grounded staff shall pass, which the Lord shall lay upon him, it shall be with tabrets and harps: and in bottles of shaking will he fight with it.
For Tophet [the place of burning in the Valley of Hinnom; see Jeremiah 7:31] is ordained of old; yea, for the king it is prepared; He hath made it deep and large: the pile thereof is fire and much wood; the breath of the Lord, like a stream of brimstone, doth kindle it (Isaiah 30:31-33). [see Isaiah 10:16; Revelation 19:15,20; Daniel 7:11]
Notice, the end-time leader of Europe is called "the Assyrian" and "the King". No doubt the future European dictator, a man of royal background, diplomatic persuasion and acceptable to all the nations of Europe (unlike Hitler, the "vile person" of Daniel 11:21. Incidentally, verse 20 refers to the Hohenzellern's which means "raiser of taxes") will probably arise out of Austria, as a German as such would probably be unacceptable to the peoples of Europe. Notice what Isaiah says in chapter thirty one:
Then shall the Assyrian fall with the sword, not of a mighty man; And the sword not of a mean man, shall devour him [compare Revelation 19:15; Isaiah 11:4; Daniel 8:25; 11:45]: but he shall flee from the sword, and his young men shall be discomfited [Hebrew is "tributaries" i.e. paying respect to God with submission, obedience, gifts etc.].
And he shall pass over to his stronghold for fear [original Hebrew has it "and his rock (i.e. the final Pope) shall pass away by reason of his terror"], and his princes shall be afraid of the ensign [see Isaiah 11:10,12; 66:19; Zechariah 9:16. This is Christ at His return], saith the Lord, whose Fire is in Zion, and His furnace in Jerusalem (Isaiah 31:8-9).
However, the Good News is that Germany will repent and learn to serve God! Zechariah prophesies that "the pride [master race arrogance] of Assyria shall be brought down. . .And I will strengthen them [Israel] in the Lord; And they shall walk up and down in His name" (Zechariah 10:11-12). Walking in God's name means to go His way, under His authority (See Micah 4:5; 6:8; Amos 3:3; Genesis 5:22). They will repent of all their shocking sins and crimes against humanity, including the enslavement of Israel (Hosea 11:12).
God will also punish Dedan (the North Germans) according to Jeremiah 49:8; 25:23 and the Swabians (Psalms 72:15; Isaiah 60:6). Their repentant nature shines through, however, in Ezekiel 38:13 where Sheba (the Swabians or perhaps the Sabine Italians), Dedan (the North Germans), Tarshish (western branch is Spain, eastern mutation is Japan. This is explained in my book Modern Descendants of Dodanim and Tarshish) and the "young lions" (symbol of Assyria) will side with the returned Israelites against the remnants of the two hundred million horde from the east. They shall remember their sins and consequent punishment. They will warn Gog and Magog and the other nations of their confederacy not to make the same mistake as they did! (Ezekiel 38 and 39 refers to a war some time after Christ's return).[lxiv] Finally, note what God also has to say of repentant Assyria (Germany) in Isaiah chapter 19:
In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria....In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land: whom the Lord of Hosts shall bless, saying, 'Blessed be Egypt, My people, and Assyria the work of My hands, and Israel Mine Inheritance.' (verses 23-25).
At long last there will be peace on earth and the Anglo-Saxon nations will no longer be troubled by the brethren, the Assyrians. The sooner "That Day" comes the better!
We have seen in the pages of this book the mysterious origins of the Assyrians. Through the misty past we have seen what history records of the ferocious Assyrians and their wanderings into Scythian Russia. Reference was also made to the Hittites and an outline of the modern Assyrians and Hittites was presented to further forge this immensely important truth. Most importantly chapter six dealt with the amazing destiny of the German peoples. The final chapter dealt with Germany in prophecy. The Germans have been a terribly destructive force in European affairs over the centuries. And yet, paradoxically, brilliant inventors and admirable creators of culture, science, music and the arts. How like their ancient Assyrian ancestors:
The Assyrian state is without parallel in history for economic destructiveness, organized rapacity, and calculated frightfulness. The cruelty of the Assyrians is a thing that stands out hideously. . .His greater energy and efficiency he devoted effectively to war. He fought with chariots and horses, with the new iron weapons of the Hittites, and with battering rams of his own invention. . .His chief god was the war-god Asshur. He set the example of world empire, followed in turn by the Persians, Greeks, Romans, French and Prussians.[lxiv]
Oh Assyria! May you be blessed, you handsome, wonderful and talented people. A people which are easy to be admired. However, first, fulfill your destiny play your part in God's plan. Then repent and share in God's great blessings and future He has in store for you. Assyria-Germany, repent! For then God can use your talents mightily during the Millennium. No more will you be an instrument in Satan's hand, but a force for good and a wonderful example of repentance. In the meantime, go your way, fulfill prophecy Oh you Assyrians in the modern world!
God bless Assyria Germany! Amen.

LIST OF RESEARCHERS WHO BELIEVE IN THE ASSYRIAN OR HITTITE ORIGINS OF THE GERMANS
1) Herbert W. Armstrong, author of The U.S. and Britain in Prophecy (five million circulated) also fervently believed in the Assyrian origins of the Germans.[lxiv] It is he who had popularized this belief.
2) In his booklet Nations in Prophecy, Dr. Court attempts to prove that the Assyrians are today's Prussians. Speaking of the Assyrians, Dr. Court writes:[lxiv]
"A German writer, Dr. Swanor, one-time editor of the German paper 'Volkeer-zieher', traced with extraordinary lucidity the origins of various ancient tribes and races including the various Canaanite peoples. According to his simple but profound researches. . .he concludes that Germany is a mixture of Philistines, Assyrians and Romans, the traditional enemies of Israel." [lxiv]
3) While Cox wrote:
"It is thought by many that those of the ruling class of Prussia are directly descended from the Assyrians of old, and this seems highly possible when one remembers that Assyria was the parent of the Babylonian succession of empires, all dominated by military force, referred to in scriptural symbology as the Beast."[lxiv]
4) A.J. Ferris in The Assyrian in Bible Prophecy claims the Assyrians are in Russia today! Rather, they moved through Russia and into Central Europe, a point he does not see. Apparently many Christadelphians also believe that the Assyrians setttled in Russia.
5) Gayer, author of The Heritage of the Anglo-Saxon Race also sees the true origins of the Germans:
"It is startling that the modern Germans are the descendants of migrants who originally came into Europe from Asia about the beginning of the Christian era from that part which framed the ancient empire of Assyria.
In modern Germany we witness the same attitude towards us as the Assyrians of old displayed towards the Israelites."[lxiv]
6) Also Henking[lxiv] mentions that the Assyrians are the Prussians and East Germans.
7) Famous British Israel author of the nineteenth century, Hines, wrote:
"We have long held the Germans to be identical with the Assyrians; and shall be prepared, in due course, if no one in the meantime will take this matter in hand, to come forward ourselves with proofs."[lxiv]
8) Dr. Herman Hoeh, author of Compendium of World History (volume two) dedicates the first two chapters to the Assyrian origin of the Germans. The title of the two chapters are: "Early History of Germany" and "The Ancient Kings of the Germans".
9) Mackendrick[lxiv] wrote:
The hatred of Prussian Germany against God's chosen people, Israel (the Anglo-Saxon-Celts), dates from the time they took Hebrew Israel captive 720 years before Christ, so 'tis fairly well ingrained.
Notice, he recognizes this as an ingrained trait. Some would term this "racial memory" as we saw in chapter six. On page 187 he calls the Prussians "Assyrians" and "Huns". On page 6 he states:
"At that time the Assyrians cut down Israel's vines and fruit trees, a thing forbidden in the Bible. Prussia is modern Assyria, and when the Huns retired to the Hinderburg line in the spring of 1917, they ran true to type. In the Bapaume sector they cut down every vine and fruit tree in every French garden for fifty miles, and many of these trees came out in bloom later as they lay murdered on the ground. . .Germany was out to maim France for life, and their poisoning wells and murdering fruit trees was a small item in the long list of barbarities and willful premeditated destructions."
10) Researcher Dr. Pilkey in his work Origins of Nations declares that many Germans descend from the Assyrians.[lxiv]
11) Famous British-Israelite author, Howard Rand, identifies modern Germany as Assyria.[lxiv]
12) R.N. Stuart, author of the Races of Mankind chart[lxiv] shows Assyria as including Germany, Prussia and Russia. And a chart by another author (unnamed) may be found on page 27 where Prussia is identified as Assur.
13) Historian, Waddell (1929) traces the Hittites from Anatolia to Germany (especially the Chatti tribe), although he does not equate the Assyrians with the Germans.
14) Llwellyn Thomas in God and My Birthright, quotes a Dr Swaner as stating that many Germans descend from the Assyrians.[lxiv]
15) One old British-Israel World Federation book stated: "Prussians, a modern people, in the writer's opinion (expressed before war) of an Assyrian stock"[lxiv]. However, the author offered no proof.
16) Plant wrote that "Ancient Assyria is Germany and Russia is ... Rosh, Mesech and Tubal".[lxiv]
If the reader knows of any other sources, please do not hesitate to advise the author in writing.

THE KHATTIE TRIBE OF NORTHWEST INDIA
The following information on the Khattie (also spelled Catti) tribe of India is extracted from Brown's excellent work The Races of Mankind (Volume Three, pages 315-316) written in the late 1800's:
"This remarkable race of men inhabit the peninsula of Saurashtra or Guzerat, and are midway between barbarism and civilisation. They are, perhaps, the most important tribe in western India, and presenting many traits of originality in manners and religion, they deserve a notice, even in the short space we can devote to the many aboriginal tribes of India. They are supposed to be the Cathaei, who, at the time of Alexander the Great's invasion of India, lived in a nook of the Punjab, and who by their desperate valour impeded the progress of the picked soldiers of Macedonia. Since that time their history can be traced, and everywhere it is distinguished by a stern resistance to the many invaders and conquerors whom they have encountered, and by a valour worthy of a better fate than they have met at the hands of the latest of their masters. The Khattie is essentially a horseman, and in this character devotes his attention to freebooting and black mail, from friend and foe alike. He is cruel, but brave, and a more energetic individual than a typical member of this race does not exist. He is in figure tall and handsome, his frame is athletic and sinewy, but his countenance is harsh and unpre-possessing.
"They seem Scythians of a somewhat recent date, and when they arrived in Guzerat they displaced and reduced to slavery two aboriginal tribes, the Aheers and Babreeas, whom they found in possession. This supplies another proof, among many, that there are aborigines and aborigines in India, in other words that many of the tribes which for the sake of convenience we now call aborigines have under them or intermixed a still deeper stratum of native races. However, if we go into this question there are almost no autothonic races; there are no true aborigines; all so- called 'native races' came from somewhere else. It is believed that they first became resident in Guzerat in the ninth century of our era. Up to 1807 they were thieves and robbers by profession, but these dubious traits of national character have perforce to be displayed in secret. Many of them are horse breeders, but will not intermarry with the Aheers or herdsmen. Taxes they refuse to pay unless forced, and except in the case of the chiefs, who compromise with their honour by allowing taxes to be levied on their lands and herds, no one pays of his own accord. Private feuds, and public wars, thin the tribes, so that at no modern period have the Khatties been numerous. Jealousy of each other and love of independence have allowed them to unite into one strong body of men, who could be formidable to any great power. They are ruled by petty chieftains, who live in little fortresses from which they sally forth and plunder, and retreat into, to escape the wrath of their pursuers.
"They are excellent horsemen, and pride themselves on the superior quality of their animals; when about to engage in a predatory fight they hire mercenaries to assist them, and use firearms which on ordinari occasion they disdain to carry, though greatly fearing their effects. These mercenaries are sometimes very low-caste Hindoos, whose services they repay with the asses captured. Of the horses bred by them they only sell the stallions, retaining the mares for their own use, on account of their value in not betraying them on plundering expeditions by their neighing. Primogeniture is unknown in this tribe. All the children, the daughters excepted, inherit the parents' property alike. Though polygamy is allowed they rarely marry more than one wife. The women are celebrated throughout India for their grace and beauty, and are kindly in their disposition. They have been often known to alleviate the sufferings of prisoners, whom the men were putting to the torture, in order to force them to discover concealed treasure, or to extort ransom. The widow of the eldest brother in Khattie family can please herself as to another union, but the widow of a younger brother, unless she declines to again enter wedlock, becomes the wife of the eldest brother. The property of a female descends with the children to her nearest relatives, even though the father is living.
"The Khatties bear the reputation of being treacherous to each other, but they rarely betray a guest who comes to them in the guise of a supplicant. Accordingly outlaws and desperate men of every description find an asylum amongst them. They worship the sun as their chief divinity, and near Thaun they have a temple with an image erected in honour of this deity. Their priests are, however, limited in their functions to the celebration of marriage and burial rites, and perform no other religious duties. They use no form of prayer, and limit themselves in the supplications to the deity to fixing their eyes on the sun with their hands clasped, and repeating any words which might suggest themselves as suitable to the expressions of desire for the boon sought. In celebrating funeral rites they place food before the lapwings. Omens and all forms of superstition flourish amongst them. The day of prosperity is now over, their fortresses in decay, their villages in ruins and the power and wealth of their chiefs gone." (Emphasis mine throughout).

A SHORT COMMENTARY ON THE BOOK OF NAHUM
In this section all quotes are from the Revised King James Version. Let us turn to chapter 1, verse 1:
The burden against Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite.
Here we have a prophetic "burden" a difficult message taken by Nahum to the Assyrians. Today, God's Church must warn modern Germany of its destiny and impending doom. The book was written ca. 650 B.C., before the fall of Thebes and Nineveh.
Verse 2: God is jealous, and the Lord avenges; the Lord avenges and is furious. The Lord will take vengeance on His adversaries, and He reserves wrath for His enemies:
See Deuteronomy 4:24. Here, God roars forth that He is going to take revenge on Germany for what she is going to yet do to the Anglo-Saxon-Keltic nations.
Verse 3: the Lord is slow to anger and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked. The Lord has His way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of His feet.
See Exodus 34:5-7; Jonah 4:2; Psalms 103:8; 145:8; Nehemiah 9:17; Joel 2:13. Even the extremely patient God of the Universe has His patience run out and His anger kindled. Therefore watch out O Germany! Your days are numbered!
Verse 4: He rebukes the sea and makes it dry, and dries up all the rivers. Bashan and Carmel wither, and the flower of Lebanon wilts.
Verse 5: The mountains quake before him, the hills melt, and the earth heaves at His presence, yes, the world and all who dwell in it.
See Micah 1:3-4. Earthquakes during the "Day of the Lord" the time period when Almighty God begins to intervene in world affairs and punish the nations are referred to here.
Verse 6: Who can stand before His Indignation? And who can endure the fierceness of His anger? His fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by Him.
Compare the above with Psalms 76:7-8.
Verse 7: The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and He knows those who trust in Him.
In the "day of trouble" (Tribulation), God will be our "stronghold". Bullinger[lxiv] in his margin has "stronghold" as "Place of Safety". See Psalms 18:1-2; 27:5; 62:6-8; 71:1-2; 91:1-2; 144:1-2; Proverbs 18:10; Isaiah 25:4; 32:2. God will keep His people in a Place of Safety during the Tribulation period when German-led Europe unleashes its terror upon the world; and during the Day of the Lord when God avenges His people. This total period will last 3 1/2 years (Revelation 12:14-17).
Verse 8: But with an overflowing flood He will make an utter end of its place, and darkness will pursue His enemies.
Compare Jeremiah 51:42, 55; and Psalms 65:7. Using the armies of the East (Russia and the Orient), God will forever silence and humble Germany.
Verse 9: What do you conspire against the Lord? He will make an utter end of it. Affliction will not rise up a second time.
After this punishment, Germany will not rise up like a sinister phoenix from the ashes, as she did after World War Two, no more fascistic militarism ever again no second revival for Germany!
Verse 10: For while tangled like thorns, and while drunken like drunkards, they shall be devoured like stubble fully dried.
Even while Germany will be united with other European nations, yet shall she be defeated. See Isaiah 10:16-17.
Verse 11: From you comes forth one who plots evil against the Lord, a wicked counselor.
Here reference is made to the Beast political/military leader of Europe. The Hebrew implies one that is cunning, deceptive, who plots and contrives, someone who is awfully evil and satanic.
Verse 12: Thus says the Lord: Though they are safe, and likewise many, yet in this manner they will be cut down when he passes through. Though I have afflicted you, I will afflict you no more;
See Isaiah 10:32-34. The Hebrew implies "to be cut down" like dry stubble. See also Isaiah 30:33; 31:8-9; 8:8; Daniel 11:10.
Verse 13: for now I will break off his yoke from you, and burst your bonds apart.
See Isaiah 14:1-4; 10:27; Psalms 107:14.
Verse 14: The Lord has given a command concerning you: Your name shall be perpetuated no longer. Out of the house of your gods I will cut off the carved image and the molded image. I will dig your grave, for you are vile.
See Daniel 11:38-39. God will destroy the images and idols of the Roman Catholic Church. Compare Daniel 11:21. The Assyrian Beast is here regarded as "vile" by God.
Verse 15: Behold, on the mountains the feet of him who brings good tidings, who proclaims peace! O Judah, keep your appointed feasts, perform your vows. For the wicked one shall no more pass through you; he is utterly cut off.
See Isaiah 52:1,7; Joel 3:17. "The wicked" in Hebrew is "Belial", which means "without profit, worthlessness; by extens. destruction, wickedness. . .evil, naughty, ungodly (men), wicked" [lxiv]
Chapter 2, Verse 1: He who scatters has come up before your face. Man the fort! Watch the road! Strengthen your flanks! Fortify your power mightily.
The Beast leader of Germany and Europe will bash or break-down the Israelitish nations with his symbolic battleaxe. See Isaiah 10:5; 14:6; Jeremiah 50:23; Micah 2:13.
Verse 2: For the Lord will restore the excellence of Jacob like the excellence of Israel, for the emptiers have emptied them out and ruined their vine branches.
Assyria would have ruined or marred the House of Israel (the vine). See Hosea 4:7; Micah 5:9-11.
Verse 3: The shields of his mighty men are made red, the valiant men are in scarlet. The chariots come with flaming torches in the day of his preparation, and the spears are brandished.
Verse 4: Their chariots rage in the streets, they jostle one another in the broad roads; they seem like torches, they run like lightning.
Compare Joel 2:4-5. "The chariots shall be. . .torches" i.e. with the flashing of steel the chariots glitter. Verse 4 may refer to cars and/or military vehicles on the autobahns. See Isaiah 2:7; Daniel 11:40; Jeremiah 4:13. They rage as though mad. "Jostle" in the Hebrew means "to push against" or "to run to and fro" as in Isaiah 33:4; Joel 2:9.
Verse 5: He remembers his worthies; they stumble in their walk; they make haste to her walls, and the defense is prepared.
Verse 6: The gates of the rivers are opened, and the palace is dissolved.
Verse 5 implies that we shall soon see a fortress Germany and Europe. See Isaiah 5:27. The gateway into Nineveh was opened to the enemy. So Berlin shall be opened up to the hordes of the east via Poland.
Verse 7: It is decreed: She shall be led away captive, she shall be brought up; and her maidservants shall lead her as with the voice of doves, beating their breasts.
Assyria will eventually be led away captive like she was anciently. "Her maidservants" probably refers to her European allies who will fall with her.
Verse 8: Though Nineveh of old was like a pool of water, now they flee away. "Halt! Halt!" they cry; but no one turns back.
Age-old Germany will be doomed. The Germans will flee from the barbarity of the advancing Russians and Orientals. See Isaiah 13:14; Jeremiah 46:16; 50:16; 51:9, 11-13.
Verse 9: Take spoil of silver! Take spoil of gold! There is no end of treasure, or wealth of every desirable prize.
Verse 10: She is empty, desolate, and waste! The heart melts, and the knees shake; much pain is in every side, and all their faces are drained of color.
The incredible wealth and riches of Germany in the end-time will be stripped from her by the East. See Isaiah 33:1, 4; II Chronicles 36:10; Ezekiel 26:12; Daniel 11:38, 43. Germany will be utterly devastated.
Verse 11: Where is the dwelling of the lions, and the feeding place of the young lions, where the lion walked, the lioness and lion's cub, and no one made them afraid?
The dwelling place of the lions is their den, the headquarters of Assyria. In the Bible, lions are symbolic of Judah, Christ, and his antithesis, Satan (I Peter 5:8) as well as Germany: See Job 4:10-11; Isaiah 5:29; Jeremiah 4:4-7; 6:23; 2:14-15, 18; 49:19; 50:17, 44; Ezekiel 38:13; Hosea 5:13-14; Joel 1:6; Zechariah 11:3. No wonder, for a major Assyrian symbol especially on the wall reliefs, was the lion.[lxiv]
Verse 12: The lion tore in pieces enough for his cubs, killed for his lionesses, filled his caves with prey, and his dens with flesh.
Verse 13: "Behold, I am against you," says the Lord of hosts, "I will burn your chariots in smoke, and the sword shall devour your young lions; I Will cut off your prey from the earth, and the voice of your messengers shall be heard no more.
The Germans will fill their homes with plunder and riches. See Psalms 17:9-13; Jeremiah 51:34. Their "messengers" (Ambassadors) will no more be spreading their propaganda around the world. For "I am against you." See Jeremiah 50:12, 31; 51:25, and 21:13.
Note too how the Assyrians are referred to as lions. A major art motif of Assyria was the lion (see my comments on this in chapters one and seven). Today, there are no lions in the Middle East. They have either been killed or migrated away, like the Assyrians themselves, whom they symbolized. In history, only Assyrian kings are mentioned as hunters of lions "and they liked to be represented in this dangerous exploit"[lxiv]. They were cruel, even to animals. God's Word forbids the needless killing and maiming of animals simply for fun. Hunting for pleasure, to see animals in pain and agony, losing their limbs, mates, parents and lives is wrong. However, if it is strictly controlled and undertaken for food, clothing or population control, it is acceptable. See Proverbs 12:10; Deuteronomy 22:6-7, 10; 25:4; 14:21; Lamentations 3:52; Mark 1:13; Exodus 23:5. Therefore, be kind to dumb animals!
Chapter 3, Verse 1: Woe to the bloody city! It is all full of lies and robbery. Its victim never departs.
Verse 2: The noise of a whip and the noise of rattling wheels, of galloping horses, of clattering chariots!
See Zephaniah 2:13-15. Munich, Berlin, Vienna, etc., will be devastated due to their corruption and cruelty. Compare Verse 2 with Isaiah 9:5.
Verse 3: Horsemen charge with bright sword and glittering spear. There is a multitude of slain, a great number of bodies, countless corpses they stumble over the corpses
The Hebrew here could be better translated as "flame of the sword, and lightning of the spear", modern weapons of destruction.
Verse 4: Because of the multitude of harlotries of the seductive harlot, the mistress of sorceries, who sells nations through her harlotries, and families through her sorceries.
One of the causes of German ferociousness is the evil religion behind her: Satan's Babylonian Mystery Religion, masquerading as true religion. Compare Isaiah 47:9, 12-13; 23:15-17; Revelation 17:1-5; 18:2-3, 9, 23.
Verse 5: "Behold, I am against you," says the Lord of hosts; "I will lift your skirts over your face, I will show the nations your nakedness, and the kingdoms your shame".
Compare Isaiah 47:2-3; Also Jeremiah 13:22, 26; Ezekiel 16:37; 23:29; Micah 1:11; Habakkuk 2:16.
Verse 6: "I will cast abominable filth upon you, make you vile, and make you a spectacle".
Verse 7: "It shall come to pass that all who look upon you will flee from you, and say,'Nineveh is laid waste! Who will bemoan her?' Where shall I seek comforters for you?"
Verse 8: Are you better than No Amon that was situated by the River, that had the waters around her, whose rampart was like the sea, whose wall was like the sea?
Compare Verse 6 with Isaiah 14:16-19; Jeremiah 51:37. With reference to Verse 7, note that Nineveh fell 612 B.C. See Jeremiah 51:41-43; Revelation 18:16-19. And in Verse 8, No Amon (Ancient Thebes in Egypt) fell 663 B.C. See Jeremiah 46:25-26; Ezekiel 30:5, 14-16.
Verse 9: Ethiopia and Egypt were her strength, and it was boundless; Put and Lubim were your helpers.
See Jeremiah 46:9; Daniel 11:43. These nations were allies of No Amon (Thebes) but they fell. So shall they fall to modern Assyria.
Verse 10: Yet she was carried away, she went into captivity; her young children also were dashed to pieces at the head of every street; they cast lots for her honorable men, and all her great men were bound in chains.
See Isaiah 19:1-4; Ezekiel 29:17-20; 32:1-16. Assyria destroyed No (Thebes), the old capital of Egypt. She will do it again!
Verse 11: You also will be drunk; you will be hidden; you also will seek refuge from the enemy.
Verse 12: All your strongholds are fig trees with ripened figs: if they are shaken, they fall into the mouth of the eater.
Verse 13: Surely, your people in midst are women! The gates of your land are wide open for your enemies; fire shall devour the bars of your gates.
The Germans will seek refuge in alcohol etc. in vain when they see the coming storm. See Jeremiah 25:25-27; 51:27; Daniel 11:44. Verse 12 indicates that Germany's defences will crumble. While the following verse indicates that the gateway into Germany (via Poland) will be opened up to the hordes of the East. See 2:6; Micah 5:5-6 ("gateway"); Jeremiah 50:37; 51:30 ("like women").
Verse 14: Draw your water for the siege! Fortify your strongholds! Go into the clay and tread the mortar! Make strong the brick kiln!
Verse 15: There the fire will devour you, the sword will cut you off; it will eat you up like a locust. Make yourself many like the locust! Make yourself many like the swarming locusts!
Verse 14 may refer to Germany's vast manufacturing plants. Cross-reference Verse 15 with Joel 1:4; 2:25; Zepheniah 2:13.
Verse 16: You have multiplied your merchants more than the stars of heaven. The locust plunders and flies away.
Verse 17: Your commanders are like swarming locusts, and your captains like great grasshoppers, which camp in the hedges on a cold day, but when the sun rises they flee away, and the place where they are is not known.
Compare Verse 16 with Ezekiel 27:3; 28:5. While verse 17 clearly cross-references with Revelation 9:7.
Verse 18: Your shepherds slumber, O king of Assyria your nobles rest in the dust. Your people are scattered on the mountains, and no one gathers them.
Verse 19: Your injury has no healing, your wound is severe. All who hear news of you will clap their hands over you, for upon whom has not your wickedness passed continually?
Assyria's war-lords (generals) will "awaken" too late to be able to contain the Oriental menace. See Jeremiah 51:39, 57. No one will be able to prevent modern Assyria's fall (see Jeremiah 30:16; Zephaniah 2:13-15). Amen!
