Order and Placement of the Twelve Tribes of Moses.
According to Numbers, While in the Wilderness, the tribes of Moses were camped in a specified order around the Tabernacle. The camping order divided the twelve
tribes into four groups of three, with the camping alignment having some parallelism to the familiar order of Jacob and his wives. The last grouping of three was
dominated by the Tribe or Dan. When they marched it was in a specific order with the Tribe of Judah going first and the Tribe of Dan bringing up the rear.
Moses Battles the Amaleks
Moses said unto Joshua: 'Choose us out men, and go out and fight with Amalek. Tomorrow I will stand on the
top of the hill with the "Rod of God" in my hand.' Joshua did as ordered and fought Amalek with Moses, Aaron and Hur positioned at the top
of the hill. When Moses held up the rod, Israel prevailed; and when he let it down, Amalek prevailed. When it came to be too difficult for Moses to keep his arm up
with the rod, they put a stone under him and Aaron and Hur held up his hands...and his hands were steady until the setting sun. And Joshua discomfited Amalek and
his people with the edge of the sword. And the LORD said unto Moses: 'Write this for a memorial in the book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will
utterly blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.' And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Adonai-nissi
And he said: the LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.'
So Joshua said to the children of Israel, "Come here, and hear the words of the Lord your God." "By this you
shall know that the living God is among you, and that He will without fail DRIVE OUT from before you the
CANAANITES and the Hittites and the Hivites and the Perizzites and the Girgashites and the Amorites
and the Jebusites...(New King James Version) Joshua 3:9
It is recorded that "Joshua took all the land: the mountain country, all the South, all the land of Goshen, the lowland, and the Jordan plain -- the mountains of Israel
and its lowlands, from Mount Halak and the ascent to Seir, even as far as Baal Gad in the Valley of Lebanon below Mount Hermon... So Joshua took the
whole land, according to all that the Lord had said to Moses; and Joshua gave it as an inheritance to Israel.
Joshua 11, verses 16-17 and 23
When the Lord your God brings you to the land that you are about to enter and possess, and He DISLODGES many nations before you -- the Hittites, Girgashites,
Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites, seven nations much larger than you -- and the Lord your God delivers them to you and you defeat them,
you must doom them to destruction: grant them no terms and give them no quarter...this is what you shall do
to them: you shall tear down their altars, smash their pillars, cut down their SACRED POSTS, and consign
their images to the fire....You shall destroy all the peoples that the Lord your God delivers to you, showing
them no pity....The Lord your God will DISLODGE these peoples before you little by little; you will not be able
to put an end to them at once, else the wild beasts would multiply to your hurt. The Lord your God will deliver
them up to you, throwing them into utter panic until they are wiped out. He will deliver their kings into your
hand, and you shall obliterate their name from under the heavens...(Deuteronomy 7:1-2, 5, 16, 22-24, Tanakh).
When Joshua and the Israelites crossed the Jordan River just north of the Dead Sea, they camped a while at Gilgal, then moved to take Jericho and Ai. Afterward,
they returned to Gilgal (Joshua 1-8). After making peace with Gibeon, Joshua led the Israelites through the Valley of Aijalon and defeated the five Amorite kings
(Joshua 9-10). From Makkedah, Joshua launched a SOUTHERN campaign against Lachish, Hebron, Debir and Gaza.
CANAANITES FLEE TO AFRICA
Those of the inhabitants who were not put to the sword by the Israelites, FLED TO AFRICA and sought
refuge there. Samuel Purchas, in his book Relations of the World and the Religions Observed in All Ages, records this flight: "Procopius...affirms, that all
the seacoast, in those times, from Sidon to Egypt, was called PHOENICIA : and that when Joshua invaded them, the survivors left the country and
fled into EGYPT(AFRICA) . (1613. Book I, chapter XVIII, p. 85).
After a victorious campaign, Joshua and the Israelites returned to Gilgal for a period of time before launching any more campaigns against the Canaanites. The
Canaanites who had fled the country, however, pushed further into Africa: "...there [in Egypt] multiplying, [the Canaanites] pierced further into Africa;
where they POSSESSED ALL THAT TRACT, UNTO THE PILLARS OF HERCULES, speaking half Phoenician"
Close to the Pillars of Hercules, on the African side, the vanquished Canaanite refugees built two cities: "They BUILT THE CITY OF TINGE AND TANGER IN NUMIDIA,
where were two pillars of white stone, placed near to a great fountain, in which, in the Phoenician tongue, was engraven: WE ARE CANAANITES, WHOM
JOSHUA THE THIEF CHASED AWAY"
In The Complete Works of Josephus, translated by William Whiston, is a footnote on page 110 that corroborates Puechas' record --
Moses Chorenensis sets down the FAMOUS INSCRIPTION AT TANGIER [TANGER] concerning the old CANAANITES driven out of Palestine by Joshua thus: "We
are those exiles that were governors of the Canaanites, but have been driven away by Joshua the robber,
and are come to inhabit here."
CANAANITE FLEE TO EUROPE
This wave of Canaanite refugees from Joshua's southern thrust expanded rapidly and made their way into the Iberian Peninsula and France -- settling thickly in the
Aude, Herault and the lower Rhone. Here, with their "tastefully decorated" pottery, they survived into Roman times, especially the Tolosati, who lent their name to the
city of Tolosa (French: Toulouse); and the Tolossae, who lived in what is now Provence. "That the tribes of this region were not Celtic [Israelite] (as is often supposed)
is revealed by the fact that the Celtic Gauls ( who always called themselves the Com-broges, or 'fellow-countrymen' (whence CYMRU "Welsh")) referred to one of
the local tribes as ALLO-BROGES or 'other-countrymen,' i.e. 'non-Celts'" (The Berber Project, p. 7).
In the Iberian Peninsula these Canaanites (known in archaeological parlance as the "Beaker Folk") became Famous for their fortified burial
mounds These mounds were built not only in Africa but throughout the first Canaanite (Berber) expansion
known as Megalithism .(Ref: Iberian Prehistory, by Maria Cruz Castro. Oxford: Blackwell, 1995. P. 106f).
Not only were they known for their earthen mounds but for their "beakers". Their beakers were drinking vessels -- pottery versions of what had long been woven in
North Africa out of esparto grass They were used for "something like mead, flavoured with herbs such as meadowsweet or wild fruits" Because the classic Beaker
design was bell-shaped, archeologists referred to them as the "Bell-Beaker People."
The Canaanites were traders and wherever they went they were welcomed as friends. They established complex trading networks, and the diverse
regions of Western Europe and North Africa were united as never before (Cunliffe, p. 256). Ivory and ostrich egg shells were highly prized luxuries,
and the only source was North Africa, where eager Berber traders did a booming business. Of more importance was their lucrative Copper Trade.
CANAANITES IN SCANDINAVIA
In the 1775 Historie af Danmark by Suhm, the arrival of the Canaanites in Scandinavia is recorded: "Messenius...says that Canaanites, which
were driven out by Joshua, came to Scondia which they called SCANDINAVIA. This is supposed to have
happened 844 Years after the Flood.
Gathelus and Scota
By the time Gathelus and his followers reached Germany in the decades immediately following the Exodus, they found the Canaanites (Pict-Folk) already living there).
In Germany, Gathelus, Scota and their followers met up with the Pict-Folk who had come to this country from Thrace). The Picts knew them on account of the fame
and glory of the sea expedition of Gathelus and when Gathelus and his people were in Thracia. Gathelus, Scota and their followers swore a treaty and friendship with
the Canaanite Picts. Expressing a desire by the Picts for more land, Gathelus promised to help and provide military alliance to contend for another territory and fair
heritage. It was agreed upon that they would unite against their enemies as brethern until Gathelus and his people were able to end their sea journey and return
home to their native land.
Heremon, King of Ireland from 1433-1418 B.C. and the son of Gathelus, remembered the promise his father Gathelus made to the Canaanites when he passed
through Germany with his people many years earlier. Bede, the English historian and theologian (673-735), recalls how Heremon kept his father's charge: "That after
the Britons, coming over from Armorica, as it was reported, being at the south, had made themselves masters of the greatest part of the island, it happened that the
Nation of the Picts, coming into the ocean from Scythia [Scandinavia], arrived first in Ireland, whence, by the advice of the Irish [Heremon and his people], they
sailed to Britain and began to inhabit the Northern Parts (Scotland) thereof, for the Britons were possessed of the southern" (Historia Ecclesiastica Gentis
ROYAL LINE DESCENDS ACCORDING TO THE FEMALE SUCCESSION
Heremon gave the Canaanite chiefs wives of his own people: "The three Pict Chiefs were given Irish Wives to take to Alba with them, on condition that henceforth
their Royal Line should descend according to the Female Succession which was the Law among the Alban Picts. (The Story of the Irish Race, p. 12). The
wives Heremon gave the Canaanite Picts were widows of his brothers who perished in the invasion of Ireland.
The Egyptian Connection to the Israelies and Canaanites
Princess Scotia was a daughter of Akhenaten (Solomon) and half sister to Tutankhamen. She died in battle and the grave yet today is marked by a slab that has
never been excavated. Scotia's descendents went on to become the High kings of Ireland at TARA in County Meath and then continued on to Scotland which means
'Land of Scotia'.
King Dan I (ODIN) commenced his reign in Scandinavia in the year 1040 B.C. and his family line was known to have stretched back to Troy.
(O-DIN is a title indicative of Kingship or Shepherd lineage. (Also known as WO-DEN, WO-TAN and DAN) ODIN comes from the Hebrew ADONAI which means
"LORD". The families descended from ODIN derive from the ancient Trojan Kings.)
Ancient classical and extra-Biblical sources indicate that the TROJAN KINGS were of the ROYAL LINE OF JUDAH and that they were closely related to other ROYAL
FAMILIES IN IONA, GREECE AND CRETE. The early British king-line is traditionally DESCENDED THROUGH THE TROJAN KINGS, and the kings of Ireland are stated
to have sprung from the MILESIAN ROYAL FAMILY in IONA into which 'Pharaoh's daughter' married." . Priam Herman L. Hoeh traced Odin's linege back to Jacob,
which confims he was of the kingship line.
"Accepting these sources, the royal families of the NORTHERN NATIONS OF EUROPE -- Irish-Scottish, Early British, Frankish, Norwegian -- are all of the SCEPTRE
TRIBE OF JUDAH and the many intermarriages of these royal lines would thus all be within the one great royal family of which so much is prophesied in Scripture.
(Queen Elizabeth II has stated that she is WODEN-BORN") (Dec. 1981. Christian Israel Foundation, Walsall, England. P. 117

|Open cult places were bibilically built on "high places" - ("...On
every high hill and under every spreading tree" -I Kings
14:23). On the ridge's summit a CIRCLE OF LARGE STONES
was laid, some 20m in diameter; the empty center of the circle
was perhaps reserved for a sacred tree. Usually on the
circle's eastern side, a large stone (standing stone) was
placed. Statuettes of bulls are sometimes found in these
sacred places, The bull is the symbol of Baal and are found
throughout the Canaanite culture.
It was one of the 4 treasures of the Tuatha de Dannan along
with the Gae Bolg, the Sword of Nuada and the Dagda's
Cauldron. It's unknown whether the Stone of Scone here or
The Liath Fail on the Hill of Tara in Co.Meath Ireland is the
true "Stone of Destiny". Peter Kennedy.

|BURIAL SITE PROTECTION LAW OF 1985
"Thanks to the introduction of new state and Federal laws,
Wisconsin's remaining mounds have now been protected.
According to the Burial Site Protection Law of 1985, Wisconsin
progressively defined all Native American mounds as human burial
places. The law protects them from disturbance and destruction, as it
does for all cemeteries and family plots.
