SOME FAMOUS BELIEVERS IN ISRAEL IDENTITY TRUTH:
According to Yair Davidy in "Brit-Am Now"-256 June 15, 2003:
Some famous Believers in Israelite ancestry include:
Rashi: Rabbi Shlomoh Yitschaki: Foremost and most revered Rabbinical Commentator
Sir Isaac Newton
Orde Wingate: soldier, tactician, contributed to foundation of Israeli
Defence Forces and to victory of allies over Italians and Japanese in WWII

Rabbi Menasseh ben Israel.
In addition many others made statements referring to the British peoples as
"Israel" or placing the British peoples in the role of Israel but it is
uncertain whether they intended this term to apply in the physical sense or only
the spiritual one: e.g. King Richard I, Queen Elizabeth I, Oliver Cromwell,
IMPORTANT QUOTES FROM POLITICAL AND OTHER LEADERS
President George Bush, jnr:
"our nation is chosen by God and commissioned by history to be a model to
the world" (statement during the 2000 election campaign)
President Ronald Reagan:

On another occasion he declared:
(Regarding the Exodus) "We may be sure that all these things happened just
as they are set out according to Holy Writ; we may believe that they
happened to people not so very different from ourselves."
"Vast numbers of people (America and Britain) on both sides of the Atlantic

18, 1940, Churchill said to England,
What General Weygand called the
Battle of France is over. The Battle of Britain is about to begin. Upon this battle
depends the survival of civilization. Upon it depends our own British life and our empire.
The whole fury and might of the enemy will soon be turned upon us. Hitler knows he will
have to break us in this island or lose the war. Let us therefore give ourselves to our
duty and so bear ourselves that if the
British commonwealth and empire last one thousand years, men will say: This was their
This indicates that he probably wished
for a 1,000 year British Empire (a beautiful vision
in opposition to Hitler's wished for a 1,000 year Reich nightmare).
Churchill on the Bible:
"We reject with scorn all
these learned and laboured myths that Moses was but a legendary figure. We
believe that the most scientific view, the most up to date and rationalistic
conception, will find its fullest satisfaction in taking the Bible literally. We
may be sure that all these things happened as they are set out in Holy Writ. In
the words of a forgotten work of Mr. Gladstone, we rest with assurance upon
‘the impregnable rock of Holy Scripture...'
Let the men of science and of learning expand their knowledge and probe with
their researches every detail of the records which have been preserved to us
from these dim ages. All they do is to fortify the grand simplicity and
essential accuracy of the recorded truths which have lighted so far the
pilgrimage of man”.
British Prime Minister Stanley
"The history of mankind is not a
purposeless history. It is a manifestation of the divine purpose"
From a Proclamation issued March
30th, 1863, for a national day of fasting and prayer, Lincoln wrote:
"We have been recipients
of the choicest bounties of Heaven. We have been preserved, these many years, in peace and
prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth, and power as no other nation has ever grown;
but we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserves us in
peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in
the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior
wisdom and virtue of our own."
When Patrick Buchanan appeared at the 1992 Republican National Convention in
Houston, he warned America of the change that would occur with the election
of the Democrats to office. The change he described was a radical change,
and as he put it, "not the kind of change we can abide in a nation that
we still call God's country."  At a later
point in his speech, he stated "There is a religious war going on in this
country for the soul of America. It is a cultural war as critical to the
kind of nation we shall be as the cold war itself, for this war is for the
soul of America."
Drake composed and
said this short but powerful prayer on 19 April 1587 before he attacked and
destroyed, in the harbour of Cadiz, a great part of the Spanish Catholic fleet,
destined for the invasion of England. Margaret Thatcher
read it during the financial crisis of October 1989 and General Montgomery used
it during WW2.

Have Observed about the Bible
U.S. President Harry S. Truman:
"I do not think that anyone can study the history of this great nation
of ours without becoming convinced that divine providence has played a part
in it. I have the feeling that God has created us and brought us to our
present position of power and strength for some great purpose."
Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher:
(Speaking of the U.S. and Britain) "..It is really like being members of
the same family."
Newsweek Magazine: Woodward and Gates:
"Now historians are discovering that the Bible, perhaps even more than
the Constitution, is our founding document: ...Only one other nation has
ever looked to the Bible to find a warrant for is very existence: Israel,...
"In 1776 Benjamin Franklin proposed to the Continental Congress that the
great seal of the United States bear the image of Moses leading the
Israelites across the Red Sea. Jefferson ...wanted the new nation
represented by an Israel led through the wilderness by the Biblical pillar
of cloud and fire."
Conrad Cherry – God’s New Israel: Religious
Interpretations of American Destiny:
(The Puritans) "...believed that ...they had been singled out by God to
be an example for the nations..."
President of Yale University Ezra Stiles:
"This American Joseph ...has already risen to an acknowledged
sovereignty among the republics and kingdoms of the world... we (the
Americans) are the object which the Holy Ghost had in view four thousand
years ago when He inspired the venerable Patriarch (Jacob) with the vision
respecting his posterity..."
