The Irish people are "not" white people? How so?

Written by Joseph T Farkasdi

I know this is going to be difficult for you to hear (or it may be meaningless to you), but I ask that you hear me out. Regardless what you may have been taught, Celtic people are no more a part ofrepparttar white people community than Jews are. In fact, their history as a people is strikingly similar to Jewish history - to includerepparttar 132209 modern inter-societal problems existing today in both nations. It's been awhile since I've studied Celtic history, so dates wise I'll attempt to be somewhere inrepparttar 132210 general ball park. But, here is a little ofrepparttar 132211 history. The Celtic languages (Irish, Scottish) are offshoots of African tribal languages. And, before settling in Europe,repparttar 132212 Celtic people lived inrepparttar 132213 Middle East (@ 6 BCE). The Celts were a powerful group of warrior tribes that conquered lands as they moved west toward, first,repparttar 132214 Greek empire and then, eventually, Europe. Somewhere aroundrepparttar 132215 end ofrepparttar 132216 4th century BCE,repparttar 132217 Celts invadedrepparttar 132218 Greek empire and originatedrepparttar 132219 country now known as Turkey.

Inrepparttar 132220 Greco-Roman Christian biblerepparttar 132221 Celts of Turkey were referred to asrepparttar 132222 Galatians, whorepparttar 132223 first Christian missionaries (seven centuries later) tried to Christianize very unsuccessfully. The word Galatian inrepparttar 132224 Christian bible is a very close approximation of whatrepparttar 132225 Celts of Turkey called themselves. Having still yetrepparttar 132226 nomadic nature, descendants ofrepparttar 132227 Turkish Celts moved on from Turkey and eventually settled in Europe, finally settling in Ireland (@ 350 BCE). It would not be untilrepparttar 132228 fall of Rome and Greece around 5 CE (approximately 900 year later), thatrepparttar 132229 Irish Celts would take an interest in Christian literature. And, ifrepparttar 132230 Irish people had not taken this literary interest, then Christianity would have become an extinct religion. For an understanding of this time period, 9 centuries afterrepparttar 132231 Celtic people had laid claim torepparttar 132232 European lands, this isrepparttar 132233 era whererepparttar 132234 Anglo-Saxon Germanic tribes (self-declared "white" people) were invadingrepparttar 132235 European continent (and were declaring white supremacy even as far back as this - if you didn't get conquered and slaughtered by them, then you were expected to become absorbed intorepparttar 132236 "white" culture and give up your ethnic identity - hence,repparttar 132237 eventual creation ofrepparttar 132238 term "WASP - white anglo saxon protestant").

Atrepparttar end of each dayrepparttar 132207 tools were collected fromrepparttar 132208 work party. On one occasion a Japanese guard shouted that a shovel was missing and demanded to know which man had taken it. He began to rant and rave, working himself up into a paranoid fury and ordered whoever was guilty to step forward. No one moved. “All die! All die!” he shouted, cocking and aiming his rifle atrepparttar 132209 prisoners. At that moment one man stepped forward andrepparttar 132210 guard clubbed him to death with his rifle while he stood silently at attention. When they returned torepparttar 132211 camp,repparttar 132212 tools were counted again and no shovel was missing.

Is this story fictitious? No, it isn’t. As a matter of factrepparttar 132213 paragraph above is taken word for word from Ernest Gordon’s book entitled, Miracle onrepparttar 132214 River Kwai. Gordon witnessed this event as a POW working onrepparttar 132215 Burma Railway during World War II.

Does this story stir you in any way? It does me. No, it’s notrepparttar 132216 eloquent writing orrepparttar 132217 cadence in rhythm that moves me. It’s notrepparttar 132218 punctuation orrepparttar 132219 strong verbs chosen byrepparttar 132220 author. But, nevertheless, it moves me to awe. I’m in awe overrepparttar 132221 nameless man who stepped up to bear for allrepparttar 132222 false blame. His uncommon valor captivates my senses momentarily.
