Benjamin Netanyahu… We Are Like Family… He Knows His American History


I smiled today when I heard Benjamin Netanyahu address Congress and say that Americans were like “family.” As a genealogist who writes about the Crypto-Jewish ancestry of America, I heard his statement different than most Americans probably did. Americans who descend from European Colonials often have ancestors with names like Levi, Jacob, Rebecca, Sarah and… Benjamin. Old Testament Biblical names beckon us to look deeper into those family trees and coats of arms. You may be surprised to find out that long before your ancestors were Christian, they were Jewish. Netanyahu knows his American history… well.  Suellen Ocean is the author of Secret GenealogyA How-to for Tracing Ancient Jewish Ancestry, Secret Genealogy IIUncovering the Jewish Roots of Our Christian Ancestors and Secret Genealogy III From Jewish Anglo-Saxon Tribes to New France Acadians.
