A Compilation by Janet Mosner (extracts)

And there was a certain man of Zorah, of the family of the Danites, whose name was Manoah; and his wife was barren, and bare not…And the woman bare a son, and called his name Samson: and the child grew, and the LORD blessed him.  (Judges 13:2, 24)

Samson, a Nazarite of the tribe of Dan, judged Israel during the period of Philistine domination. The Merovingians, who plan to rule the world from their future throne at Jerusalem, claim to come from the tribe of Judah through Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene.  However, the weight of evidence indicates that they descended from the tribe of Dan.  Although Scripture states that Samson was “of the family of the Danites” [Judges 13:2], Yair Davidy of Brit-Am Israel claims that his lineage includes the Messianic tribe of Judah: “Samson the superman hero came from the Tribe of Dan but his mother was from Judah. Samson, in some respects, was considered a forerunner of the Messiah who will come from Judah but his mother, according to the Midrash will be of the Tribe of Dan.”    [Brit-Am Israel newsletter, 2/9/99]

The Arcadian roots of the Merovingians, Spartans and Celts seem to be connected to the tribe of Dan because of their use of Dan-related place-names, personal names and peculiarities, i.e., Baal/goddess worship and architectural skills. The Tribe of Dan inherited the pre-flood paganism [Baal worship] of the Canaanites [descendants of Ham and his son, Canaan] who occupied the northern area of Palestine at Mt. Hermon/Sion. Located at the 33rd degree, the ancient tribe of Dan influenced the basis of modern Freemasonry. The symbols of the tribe of Dan are used by the Merovingian Jews, the Jewish House of Stewart and the Jewish authors of the Protocols of Sion [Representatives of Sion of the 33rd degree].

  • “Irenaeus (‘Heresies’ Vol. 302), Hippolytus (‘De Christo et Antichristo’, pp. 14,15), and other Church fathers have a tradition which cannot but be of Jewish origin, that the Antichrist comes from the tribe of Dan, and base it upon Jer. VIII.16: ‘The snorting of his (the enemies) his horses was heard from Dan’… Irenaeus remarks that Dan is, in view of this tradition, not in the Apocalypse (Rev.vii.5-7) among the 144,000 saved ones of the twelve tribes. Nor is the omission of Dan in I Chron. iv. et seq. unintentional… Dan became the very type of evildoing. He was placed in the north (Num.ii.25), this being the region of darkness and evil (Jer. i.14) because of his idolatry which wrapped the world in darkness (Num.ii.).”  [Singer, The Jewish Encyclopedia, (“Dan”), p. 423]
  • “And Jeremiah does not merely point out his [Antichrist] sudden coming, but he even indicates the tribe from which he shall come where he says ‘We shall hear the voice of his swift horses from Dan; the whole earth shall be moved by the voice of the neighing of his galloping horses: he shall also come and devour the earth, and the fullness thereof, the city also, and they that dwell therein.’ This, too, is the reason that this tribe is not reckoned in the Apocalypse along with those which are saved.” [Irenaeus, “Against Heresies,” Book V, Chap. 30]
  • “There are different answers to the question whether the Antichrist will be a Jew or a heathen. That he will be a Jew, and apparently of the tribe of Dan, Irenaeus based on Jer. 8:16 and the absence of that tribe in Rev. 7:5-8. Hippolytus grounded it upon Deut. 33:22; Gen. 49:16, 17, and the consideration that as the opposite to Christ he must descend from Israel. Ambrose refers to John 5:43; Prof. Schlatter to II Thess. 2:4; that he sets himself in the temple of God, not of idols.”                     [Erich Sauer, The Triumph of the Crucified, p. 119]
  • And now I have sent a cunning man, endued with understanding, of Huram my father’s, The son of a woman of the daughters of Dan, and his father was a man of Tyre, skilful to work in gold, and in silver, in brass, in iron, in stone, and in timber, in purple, in blue, and in fine linen, and in crimson; also to grave any manner of graving, and to find out every device which shall be put to him, with thy cunning men, and with the cunning men of my lord David thy father.                                                             (II Chronicles 2:13, 14)
  • “But neither Athelstan and his son, nor the Comacine Masons, serve to account for one of the most salient aspects of later Freemasonry — the fact that it contains a major skein of Judaic tradition filtered through Islam. The corpus of legends central to Freemasonry — including, of course, the building of Solomon’s Temple — derives ultimately from Old Testament material, both canonical and apocryphal, as well as from Judaic and Islamic commentaries upon it. It is worth looking at the most important of these legends — the murder of Hiram Abiff — in some detail. The Hiram story is rooted in the context of the Old Testament. It figures in two books, I Kings and II Chronicles.”                  [Baigent, The Temple & The Lodge, p. 124]
  • “Merovingian geographical place-names and personal names were sometimes Jewish. In the 6th Century a brother of King Clothair was named Samson while Miron “Le Levite” was a count. ‘Sion’ and ‘Le Levite’ were Merovingian towns in France. Scholars have even traced Merovingian ‘Salic Law’ back to Judaic law.” [Bradley, p. 179]
  • “The Merovingian’s…tradition of long hair and the name Samson among the Royal House would indicate the descent from Samson and thus the Tribe of Dan.”

[Bloomer, Athol. “Athol Says English Aristocracy From King David,” Yair Davidy, Brit-Am Israel, POB 595, Jerusalem, Israel 91004]

  • “The Merovingian kings…were called the long-haired Monarchs because they placed great value on their long hair and believed that it gave them strength. One wonders whether Samson was a Merovingian ancestor!”  [Van Buren, Elizabeth. THE SIGN OF THE DOVE, Suffolk: Neville Spearman, Ltd., 1983. p. 30]
  • “In Greek myth…[is] the legend of King Belaus, one Danaus, who arrives in Greece with his daughters, by ship. His daughters are said to have introduced the cult of the mother goddess, which became the established cult of the Arcadians. According to Robert Graves the Danaus myth records the arrival in the Peleponnesus of ‘colonists from Palestine.’ Graves states that King Belus is in fact Baal, or Bel — or perhaps Belial from the Old Testament.”

[Baigent, Holy Blood, p. 275]

  • “At that particular time Arcadia was ruled by Spartans… The Spartans placed a special magical significance on their long hair …associated with their great strength. There appears to have been a relationship between the Spartans and the Jews. In the Apocryphal we read: ‘It has been found in writing concerning the Spartans and the Jews that they are brethren and are of the family of Abraham.’  (Maccabees I 12:21)” [Van Buren, op.cit. p. 45]
  • “Dan was the last of the tribes to receive his portion, which was the smallest of the twelve. It had…a line of seacoast which seems to have led the tribes to engage in fishing in commerce…”
  • Using the Greenwich Zero Meridian, the northern territory of Dan lies at 35.5 degrees longitude. However, if the Paris Zero Meridian is used, having a 2.5 difference from Greenwich, Dan is found to lie at the 33rd degree longitude and latitude… “And they called the name of the city Dan, after the name of Dan their father, who was born unto Israel: howbeit the name of the city was Laish at the first.” (Judges 18:29)  It was first a Canaanite sanctuary for the worship of Baal; perhaps Baal-Hermon (Judg.3:3; I Chron. 5:23].  It was called by the Greeks Paneas because of its cavern…dedicated to the worship of the god Pan.” [Unger, op. cit. p. 191]

[Unger, Merrill F. THE NEW UNGER’S BIBLE DICTIONARY, R.K. Harrison, Ed., Chicago, Moody Press, 1988, 1957. p. 273]

  • “The place had been named Panias, for it served as the favorite seat of Pan, a Greek fertility god.”

[Pfeiffer, Charles F. BAKER’S BIBLE ATLAS, Revised Edition, Grand Rapids MI, Baker Book House, 1997, 1961. p. 197]

  • “…the Jordan river that weaves like a snake along the eastern border of the land of Israel is named after the ancient tribe of Dan. Jordan means ‘the going down of the Dan.'”

  • And the children of Dan set up the graven image: and Jonathan, the son of Gershom, the son of Manasseh, he and his sons were priests to the tribe of Dan until the day of the captivity of the land. And they set them up Micah’s graven image, which he made. (Judges 18:18, 30-31)
  • … a stone image of Asherah has survived…found in ruins of Dan, where the golden calf was worshipped in what is now northern Israel, [which] dates from the eighth century B.C.E. The Goddess strongly resembles her neighboring deities Anet, Astarte, Ashtaroth.”

[Johnson, Buffie. LADY OF THE BEASTS: THE GODDESS AND HER SACRED ANIMALS Rochester, VT: Inner Traditions, 1994. p. 315]

  • Whereupon the king (Jeroboam) took counsel, and made two calves of gold, and said unto them, It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem: behold thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. And he set the one in Bethel, and the other put he in Dan… And this thing became a sin: for the people went to worship before the one, even unto Dan. And he made an house of high places, and made priests of the lowest of the people, which were not of the sons of Levi.                                           (I Kings 12:25-32)
  • “To Dan was given the symbol of Scorpio, which, in the ancient Egyptian zodiac was a snake.”

[J.R. Church, Guardians of the Grail, p. 117]

  • “And perhaps there is significance in the fact that the Eighth House of astrology rules the mysteries of sex, death and rebirth — and the occult.”

[Picknett, Lynn & Clive Prince, THE TEMPLAR REVELATION: SECRET GUARDIANS OF THE TRUE IDENTITY OF CHRIST, Simon and Schuster, 1997. p. 204]

  • “We ought also…to mention the…Druses — so-called worshipers of the devil, established in the mountains [of Dan] where numbers of Judeo-Christians took refuge in the first centuries of our era. The image of a serpent appears, sculptured upon the portals of their sanctuaries; and their doctrine contained a good deal of Gnosticism.”

[Doresse, Jean. THE SECRET BOOKS OF THE EGYPTIAN GNOSTICS,

NY: MFJ Books, 1986 (1958). p. 316]

  • “There was a very great ‘Jewish’ component among the Sicambrian Franks/Merovingians and, because they practiced polygamy (another Merovingian peculiarity) they left a great number of offspring. These aristocratic Merovingian children married into almost all of the noble families of Europe during the 5th, 6th, and 7th Centuries. This has prompted more than one historian to suggest that the foundation of European nobility is Jewish!”

[Bradley, Michael. HOLY GRAIL ACROSS THE ATLANTIC, Willowdale, 1988. p. 180]

  • “The work of…Jews smuggled as ‘Fifth Column’ into the bosom of the Church of Christ was made easier through the hypocritical conversion to Christianity or that of their forefathers. In addition, they laid aside their Jewish surnames and took on very Christian names, which were embellished with the surnames of their godfathers. Thus they were successful in mixing with the Christian society and taking possession of the names of the leading families of France, Italy, England, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Poland and the other lands of Christian Europe. With this system, they were successful in penetrating into the bosom of Christianity itself, in order to destroy it from within and to destroy the core of the religious, political and economic institutions.”  [Pinay, Maurice, THE PLOT AGAINST THE CHURCH, St. Anthony Press, 1967. p. 237]

 

On The Tribe of Dan

721 B.C. – Tribe of Dan began migration from Israel to Sparta to Troy to Europe where they would become the Merovingian nobility. Having been pushed out of their territory west of Jerusalem, they went north into Lebanon [to Mt. Hermon, named derived from Hermes].  The story is found in Judges 18.  According to the chapter, the tribe of Dan established an idolatrous religion — the worship of the sun and moon. The summation of their move is given in the book of Judges:

  • ‘And they called the name of the city Dan, after the name of Dan, their father, who was born unto Israel; howbeit, the name of the city was Laish at the first.  ‘And the children of Dan set up the graven image; and Jonathan, the son of Gershom, the son of Manasseh, he and his sons were priests to the tribe of Dan until the day of the captivity of the land’.     (Judges 29-30)  

According to the story, the tribe of Dan moved into Lebanon, where they lived for at least the next 600 years. In the year 721 B.C., the Assyrians took the northern ten tribes captive… The Spartans lived in Laconia, near Arcadia, in the southern Greek peninsula called Peloponnesus. Over the centuries some of the group migrated northeast across the Aegean Sea to build the ancient city of Troy. There came a time when Paris, the Trojan prince, fell in love with Helen, wife of the Spartan king, kidnapped her and removed her to the city of Troy. By the way, Paris was the one after whom the capital of France was named. There is also a city in France named Troyes, after the ancient Trojan capital — for the Merovingian French royalty claimed descent from the Trojans… Over the centuries some of the Spartans migrated into southern France, and some of the surviving Trojans moved north and west into Germany, Belgium and northern France, following the Danube River, and eventually settled in the region that became known as Austrasia in the province of Lorraine. The lineage of the Merovingian kings, therefore, may have been rooted in the Trojans.”

  • The Cimri are said to be a Judaic tribe whose remnants settled in England and Jutland by Antenor 1, 483-443 BC, King of Cimmerian Scythia on the Black Sea. By legend the King (Euxim) of the Cimmerians was descended from the Royal line of TROY.  It is from this line that the Merovingian dynasty of France has its source. Marcomir 460-396 BC; Antenor II (Sicambri Kings) 442-384 BC, first King of the Sicambri (his wife was Cambri, ie Cimmerian) 384 BC TO 63 BC (Sicambri kings; parallels timeline of Scythians arriving in Scotland) Note: modern town of KIMRI on Volga River, Russia. Kimri means ‘red’.        (citation lost)
  • Rothschild really means “Ruth’s Child” signifying this dynasty’s false claim to the lineage of David and entitlement to redeem the land of Israel. The Guild of Masons, who built Chartres and other French cathedrals, were called the ‘Children of Solomon’.  Hiram Abiff, the architect of King Solomon’s Temple, was a Hermetic alchemist–described as ‘an artificer in metals’.  His ancient forerunner was Tubal-cain (Genesis 4:22), the son of Lamech, and the teacher of all who followed.  In Freemasonry, Hiram Abiff is identified as the ‘Son of the Widow’ — and in Grail lore, the constant epithet of Perceval is precisely the same. The original ‘widow’ of the Grail bloodline was Ruth the Moabite (heroine of the book of Ruth), who married Boaz to become the great-grandmother of David. Her descendants were called Sons of the Widow.”                (Gardner, op. cit. p 247)
