As many are astonished concerning you thus: "an outline from a man!" ... "his features mirror the sons of Adam!" Thus he shall startle many nations. Concerning him, kings (rulers) shall shut their mouths because that which was not told to them they shall see and that they had not heard they shall meditate to themselves.
(Literal translation of Isaiah 52:14-15)

ATTN: Chieftains, elders, tribal councils RE: Call to rally around the Birthright
O'siyo and Aho,
For the past six moons, the Central Band of Cherokee has been contacting chieftains, elders and tribal councils to sound an alarm about the proposed Palestinian state usurping the Birthright of Jacob (the head and crown in the outline above). Alternatively, with the backing of the 13-members of the Equahiyi-Wasi (the Abraham-Moses project), the Central Band has researched and embraced the biblical "Zechariah Plan." This conditional plan outlined in Zechariah 9 and explained at www.torah-voice.org, would give the Palestinians much more fertile and suitable land in a contiguous state than would be afforded in the non-contiguous plan proposed by the U.S. State Department. But it is conditioned upon the end of violence and terror, Palestinian recognition of the State of Israel's right to exist and the end of Palestinian ultra-Nationalism in Judea-Samaria.
The Central Band of Cherokee under the leadership of its principal chief, Joe "Sitting Owl" White, decided to be involved in this Israeli-Palestinian dispute after 10 years of research into the historical, archaeological, cultural, linguistic and genetic links between primarily Cherokee (but other Native American populations as well) and "Abraham and Moses" revealed mitochondrial DNA locating ancient Cherokee grandmothers in the very Birthright territories under dispute.
From this and other evidence published in the March-April 2010 edition of Ancient American magazine, the chief concluded, "If we were part of ancient Israel, then we should return to the everlasting commands of Torah binding upon all of Israel throughout their generations." He also commissioned one of the Equahiyi-Wasi, who had prepared the Zechariah Plan 10 years earlier to disseminate the basics of this plan among a sampling of Nations. To date, some 50 Nations have been contacted including all 38 Nations in Oklahoma.
By the authority of that commission as the ambassador-at-large and director of the Foreign Ministry for the Central Band, I am asking for the help of all who believe in the future reconciliation, restoration and reunion of the House of Joseph with the House of Judah and in the sovereignty of the Birthright.
A series of most pivotal meetings will be occurring first in Washington between Israeli and Palestinian leaders beginning on Sept. 2. Be sure your U.S. Senators and congressmen, radio talk show hosts, newspaper editors, ministers and any Internet groups and "opinion leaders" are aware that the final status plan being promoted by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the U.S. State Department usurps the all-important Birthright, the head and crown region in the outline of Judea-Samaria. This is THE blackest road America could walk as already is being evidenced as an honest-to-God biblical curse begins to spread. "I will bless those who bless you (the seed of Abraham through Jacob), but those who curse you, will cause themselves to be cursed." (Genesis 12:3).
Restricting infrastructure development in the Birthright of Jacob as a condition to guarantee a Palestinian state in the aftermath of the 1991 Persian Gulf War set this curse in motion and involved the U.S. in its choice over honoring the Birthright -- Iraq. The White House was warned by an Apache grandmother in 2007 shortly after the end of 400 years of the failed experiment called Manifest Destiny -- failed because how can it be called a success if its success relied on 500 broken treaties? With the restoration of Native spiritual sovereignty at the Native commemoration of the 400th anniversary of Jamestown, it is necessary for Native elders and spiritual leaders to warn against the curses American leaders ignorantly bring on Turtle Island. Accordingly, Secretary of State Clinton has been warned about this concern in recent weeks. No greater curse may befall a nation than for tampering with the Birthright of Jacob.
Please read and consider the arguments proposed in the Zechariah Plan and how it can save millions of Palestinian lives from the sure death about which the prophet Obadiah warned, which is a certainty under the State Department's plan usurping the Birthright. A diplomatic pouch of letters from interested chieftains, elders and council chairs is being prepared to send via courier directly to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
NOW IS THE TIME FOR ALL GOOD JOES AND JEWS -- INCLUDING AND ESPECIALLY NATIVE AMERICAN JOES AND JEWS -- TO COME TO THE AID OF THE BIRTHRIGHT.
One of the Twin Fires is advising that this concern is for the generation of Natives to follow, presuming this 7th generation must first witness the judgments prophesied and the complete restoration of Native spiritual sovereignty in the aftermath of these judgments. The other fire has yet to speak. But if the Native population has links to the Josephite tribe of M'nashe (Mannasah) "separated from his brothers" prior to the exile of the Northern tribes in 722 BCE as many believe, its destiny is intertwined with Ephraim, the descendants of the settlers through Cimmerian root stocks that have populated virtually the entire world via European colonization.
The final status of this proposed Palestinian state is perhaps the most important spiritual issue that has confronted the House of Joseph -- as a national entity -- since the sin of Jereboam. The infamous northern king who set up altars to worship Baal at Dan and Bethel just to discourage worship at the Temple in Jerusalem, which would have served to unify the divided Hebrew nation, sinned so grievously against the LAND, that every successive generation of northern kings was judged by and fell short by his transgression: "Yet he persisted in the sin of his father, Jereboam."
We must be certain that we rid ourselves of any attitudes that prejudice the work of Creator reconciling the houses of Joseph and Judah and that especially includes our attitudes toward the land in Israel and most specifically, the Birthright and the Temple in Jerusalem.
