TUTSI JEWS CLAIM ORIGINAL JEWS DESCEND FROM KUSH.
(THE LION OF JUDAH IS REALLY THE LION OF KUSH)
Professor Yochanan(Jean)Bwejeri is a Tutsi Jew and the President of the Havila Institute whose headquarters are in Brussels, Belgium. He is a member of the Bene Zagwe clan of Tutsis . The Tutsis are a tribe that can be primarily found living in Rwanda and Burundi. It is well known that the Tutsis have a tradition of origins in Ethiopia. During the Rwandan Genocide the Hutu would threaten the Tutsis by stating that they were going to drive them back to Ethiopia where they came from.
TUTSIS CLAIM TO BE THE TRIBE OF JUDAH WHILE ACKNOWLEDGING DIRECT DECENT FROM KUSH AND HAM
Professor Bwejeri traces the origins of the Tutsis to Ancient Ethiopia during a time when it was known as Kush. He emphasizes the fact that the Tutsis are of the Tribe of Judah. In this regard he claims that their ancestral emblems were the Drums of Solomon, The Lion of Judah and the Scepter. In what appears to be a contradiction he then claims that the Tutsi Jews descend from Kush the Son of Ham.
" The original name of the Tutsi patriarch was Himai, a descendant of Ham, one of Noah’s sons. The word Tutsi is built from the root of Kushi. Kush or Cush is the land situated south of Egypt along the banks of the Nile. The Cushites and the Hebrews have many biblical contacts. One of the most interesting is that the Cushites encouraged King Hezekiah of Judah to resist the Assyrians. (II Kings 19:9.14). "
(To this day the royal clan of the Tutsis is known as the Hima. The President of Uganda Yoweri Musevini is a member of the Hima-Clan.)
Although this genealogical account of descent from Kush the Son of Ham appears to contradict the Biblical account which claims that the Tribe of Judah descended from the Semitic Nation of Israel it actually confirms the true history as it pertains to the Original Jews. The True or Original Jews were a Nation of Ethiopians that descended from a man named Judadas who was a son of Ramah and a grandson of Kush who in turn was the son of Ham. Judadas was also the brother of Sheba and thus by tradition the Kings of Judah would marry a Queen or daughter from Sheba.
JOSEPHUS ON JUDADAS
Flavius Josephus of the Antiquities of the Jews — Book I
(How every nation was denominated from their first inhabitants.)
Verse 22 Section 2
....and he had two sons, the one of whom, Judadas, settled the Judadeans; a nation of the western Ethiopians, and left them his name: as did Sabas, to the Sabeans.
THE HISTORIES OF TACITUS
In addition to understanding that the Juda or Judadean Nation were Ethiopians or Kushites the historian Tacitus reveals the fact that most Jews living in Judea were Ethiopians who relocated from Ethiopia because of fear and hatred that was prominent during the reign of the Ethiopian King Cepheus.
The Histories by Tacitus
"Many assure us that the Jews are descended from those Ethiopians who were driven by fear and hatred to emigrate from their home country when Cepheus was king."
Therefore from the sources mentioned above it can be concluded that the original Jews were descended from the Hamite Judadas and the Western Ethiopian Nation of Judadea.
Since Professor Bwejeri knows that the Original Jews were Kushites he therefore rejects the ancestral claim that binds the ancestry of Judah with Mesopotamia. He theorizes that the Jews made up their Mesopotamian roots in order to gain the favor of the Babylonians. This also appears to be a contradiction as the Professor proudly claims that the Kushites were Hebrews. Hebrew means to Crossover and refers to the Semitic and Hamitic Peoples who Crossed the Euphrates and moved Westward towards the Land of Canaan. In regards to their Western Migration they were known as Amurru (West) and later Moors. To this day there is still an Ethiopian Tribe known as the Amurru. As Kushites the Tutsi Jews would have originally crossed over from Sumeria which was the location of the Asiatic Kushite Kingdom of Nimrod. In the African Kushite Kingdom the Tutsi Jews would ultimately become known as the Zagwe, a dynasty that ruled Ethiopia from 900 to 1270. Obviously the Tutsi Jews maintained the Hebrew identity of the Kushites who crossed the Euphrates from Sumeria but did not have the Semitic Mesopotamian identity of Abraham which Professor Bwejeri believes was falsified in the Biblical account.
The truth of the matter is that the Kushite Jews who are the Original Tribe of Judah were not descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. That biblical account was forged in order to create a sense of unity between the Nation of Judah(Judea) and the Nation of Israel. Under the reign of David and Solomon the Ethiopian Nation of Judah briefly came to rule over the Israelites:
The Kushite descended Tribe of Judah was accepted by God into the House of Israel and therefore being known as Beta Israel they are counted like all other tribes of Israel who are descend from Jacob and of whom were known as Bene-Israel . Bene-Israel refers to the descendants of Jacob, while Beta Israel is the more inclusive Nation.
“Are you not like the Cushites to me, O people of Israel?” declares the LORD.
However after the reign of Solomon they once again became two separate nations being the Northern Kingdom of Israel and the Southern Kingdom of Judah.
