Several new theories have popped up saying that Filipinos are descendant of the lost tribes of Israel. Talktohand.gif


Like this news article in the Bohol chronicle.

Proem


After the death of King Solomon, Ophir was abandoned and soon forgotten. After the passage of hundreds of years nobody would know where or what is Ophir. The other word associated with Ophir is the word "Tarshish." Nobody also knew what it meant. In old translations of the Bible it was supposed also to be a place. However, in new translations of the Bible, it is used to refer to the fleet that went to Ophir.

What happened to the Hebrew or Jewish settlements that were established to process the gold before they were shipped back to King Solomon? Nobody also knew. However, we knew that because of their religious beliefs the Hebrews tend to survive as a separate enclave wherever they settled.

What the Spaniards Believed

In Spain there is a book called Coleccion General de Documentos Relativos a las Islas Filipinas. It is found in the Archivos de Indias de Sevilla. It was reprinted in 1920 in Barcelona, Spain by the Compania General de Tabaccos de Filipinas. Its Tomo III (1519-1522), pages 112-138, contains Document No. 98 describing how to locate the land of Ophir.

This same volume also contains the official documents regarding the voyage of Ferdinand Magellan. It also contains the logbook of Francisco Albo, the chief pilot of the ship Victoria. This logbook is also one of the main references regarding the voyage of Ferdinand Magellan.

Since this book contains important documents, we can discern that the Spaniards did not really believe that Ophir was in India. In fact the Cabot expedition that left Spain on April 3, 1526 had a secret mission, "to search for a route to Tarsis, OPHIR, Oriental Cathay (China), and Japan."

The Travel Guide

Document No. 98 describes how to locate the land of Ophir. The travel guide started from the Cape of Good Hope in Africa to India, to Burma, to Sumatra, to Moluccas, to Borneo, to Sulu, to China, then finally Ophir.

Ophir was "…in front of China towards the sea, of many islands where the Moluccans, Chinese, and Lequios met to trade…"

This group of islands could not be Japan because the Moluccans did not get there. It could not be Taiwan because it is not "of many islands." Only the present day Philippines could satisfy the description.

Jewish Settlements
Along the route described by Document No. 98 are locations of old Jewish settlements.

It would not be surprising for that was the procedure used by King Solomon's fleet.

Settlements were established at selected places to trade and process the gold and silver. The ships will collect the gold and silver and bring it to King Solomon. To the credit of the Hebrew people, their settlement remained true to the Jewish faith even for thousands of years. Settlements were found in India, Burma, Sumatra, and Vietnam (Annam and Cochin China).


Who Were the Lequios?

Spanish records mention of a mysterious people known as Lequios. Modern historians variously identified them as Okinawans, Koreans, or Vietnamese. They were favorite targets of Spanish ships during the time of General Miguel Lopez de Legazpi because the ships of the Lequios were always laden with gold and silver.

According to Documents 98, the Lequios were big, bearded, and white men. They were only interested in gold and silver when trading at Ophir. Okinawans, Koreans, and Vietnamese people are not big nor are they white. Their beards are just small goatees and could not satisfy the word "bearded". Therefore they were not the Lequios. So who could the Lequios be but the remnants of Hebrews and Phoenicians who have made some enclaves along the Southeast Asian shores?

The Hebrew word "LEQOT" or "LIQQET" means to gather, to glean. It resembles closely the word Lequios. It will fit the men of King Solomon's fleet who gathered gold and silver. (Note: The Hebrew alphabet has no small letters.)

Where Was Ophir?

There is no doubt that the group of islands in front of China towards the sea is the present day Philippines. The question is where was Ophir located in the Philippines?

Ancient Chinese records say that the ancient trading places in the Philippines were Ma-yi and Pulilu. Dr. Otley Beyer identified Ma-yi as Mindoro. Dr. Jose Rizal, Blumentrit, Robertson, and Stangl say that it was Luzon in part or in whole.

Dr. Jose Rizal identified "Pulilu" as Bo-ol or Bohol. Nobody disputed Dr. Jose Rizal. So there are only three possible places in the Philippines that could be identified as Ophir, they are Luzon, Mindoro, and Bohol.

To be continued...

A STRONG CASE FOR PROVING THAT FILIPINOS ARE THE DESCENDANTS OF THE LOST TRIBES OF ISRAEL...

We all know that circumcision is prevalent in the Philippines...
But actually circumcision which is documented to be a uniquely Abrahamic (Meaning Jewish-Christian-Muslim) tradition.

Actually predates the arrival of Christianity to the Philippine Islands.

The Spaniards thought it to be due to the Islamic influence.

In Antonio de Morga's seventeenth century History of the Philippine Islands (Historia de las islas Filipinas) he speculates that it is due to Islamic influence

But if indeed circumcision in the Philippines was introduced via Islam we should have Arabic words to describe the process of circumcision. Yet classical Philippine circumcisional terms have no Arabic antecedence...

This means circumcision in here even predates the arrival of Islam, Buddhism or Hinduism to the archipelago...

Why the hell were we doing Hebrew rituals way before others did?
The only logical answer is that...

We are the lost tribes of Israel.

They may be part of the lost tribe but clearly not all of the lost tribes. We could be the outermost branch of the lost tribes or something.

LOLOL this is to clarify that I don't believe in this non-sense. Talktohand.gif

But it's juust soo funny the lengths people go to to stick to their delusions though I do concede that this theory is plausible and im entertaining it by posting this topic.

Japan Shinto Culture and Kenya Lemba Tribe is confirmed to be one of the 12 lost tribes of Israel because of cultural and geneology similarities but the Philippines is not yet that convincing unless more research will be done.

I think the Philippines as Israel's lost tribe carry a lot more wait compared to the assertion that the Japanese are.

The only way to confirm this is through DNA test. The Chinese jews of Kaifeng are confirmed descendants of Persian jews through DNA test. I doubt filipinos have any jewish dna.

Keep it real. You guys are nothing but a bunch of short, flat nosed, monkey faced, caucasian wannabes. Huge inferority complex. The least respected Asian race.

I guess Filipinos are related to everyone except Malaysians and Indonesians.
