JUST IN: What you need to Know about Igbo Jews From Israelites (must Read)




JEWS AND IGBOS, WHO DESCENDED FROM EACH OTHER
The question of "Igbo Jews" has gained currency in social media and this is what ushered in this piece of work to clarify different schools of thought on the epic truth pertaining to these two smartest, most clever and blessed creatures of this earth.

NOTE: The Igbos in this context refers to both the people of South-south (sic) and the Southeast. Some said that South-south (sic) are cousins to the Southeast. But the truth remains that they two share the same rich cultural heritage just like they do with Israel. To buttress the sameness of South-south (sic) and Southeast, during the 1966 pogroms where Igbos were hunted and killed by the Islamic northerners, Odumegwu Ojukwu in 2000 recalls, "There was no real distinction between the Igbo and the South-south (sic). The first public execution on Carter Bridge in Lagos during the 1966 massacre was Major Ekandem (from Cross River state). I want to see a brilliant northerner who can make a clear distinction between an Igbo man and an Ibibio man."

History has it that the Igbos kept on migrating until the river- Ezu and Omambala Rivers, stopped them. When they reach to this part of the world, they met the Bijango people otherwise known as "the people of the forest." The Bijango people are today found only in Guinea.

IGBOS ARE DESCENDANTS OF THE JEWS

From the view of this school of thought, their argument contends that the Igbo Jews were among the sons of Jacob (Yaakov) who sojourned to Egypt because of the famine that hit the Middle East. Igbos being the wisest of them all, foresaw the maltreatment from the Egypt, and so, they left on time before the "Exodus." After several migration, they found themselves in this part of Africa. 

History reveals that the Igbos are the descendants of Gad the seventh son of Jacob (Yaakov). According to Igbo history, Eri is their ancestor. Eri is the fifth son of Gad. Eri gave birth to Agulu as his first son. He took after his father Eri by answering Agulueri. His descendants are found today in Anambra. Anambra people are the first son of Igbo land. Igbos always say “Mgbe Eri” to refer to the olden days.

JEWS ARE THE DESCENDANTS OF THE IGBOS


Yes, some scholars claim that Igbo civilization is older than that of the Israelites. Just as their name “Igbo” implies- Ancient people, some are of the opinion that Igbos have been in existence for more than 5000 years before the first woman gave birth to a Greek person. Acholonu (2009) traces, for example, the unknown and lost history of the people of lgbo extraction all the way to 500, 000 - 1, 000, 000 B.C. Another is French paleontologists working in the Chad Basin, he dated Igbo earliest known ancestors to 7 million B.C. To buttress this scholars' claim of Igbo civilization being older than that of the Israelites, we bring the burning issue of the Ancient Igbo Pyramids also known as Nsude Pyramids. These pyramids built by the Igbos were built at the same time when the first or second Egyptian Pyramids were built by the Nubians. It had same features with the Egyptian pyramids. 

COMMENTS FROM SCHOLARS
1. Noah Kartz: Noah Kartz is an Israeli ambassador to Nigeria. He after studying the Igbo tribe, came up with a conclusion by saying, “I am sure, the Igbos are the descendant of the Jews.’’
2. Olauda Equiano (sic) - the correct name is Ikwuano not Equiano. Ikwuano is in Umuahia in Abia state. The great Igbo historian and once a Britsh slave who founded the capital of Sierra Leon by name Freetown confessed that the tribe (Igbo) he came from are the descendants of Israel.
3. Daniel Lis, a foremost researcher on Jewish Identification from the University of Basel, Switzerland affirms that "there is a clear continuity of Jewish Identity among the Igbos. It is not just something that happened yesterday."

SAMENESS OF CULTURE AMONG THE IGBO JEWS AND THE JEWS OF ISRAEL


Right from old, I mean from inception, the two have the following practices in common; 
1. Circumcision eight days after the birth of a male child
2. Separation of men and women during menstruation
3. Observation of Kosher- prohibition on the consumption of certain animals.
4. Rosh Hashanah- a two days celebration which begins on the first day of every year.
5. Carrying their dead ones home
6. Mourning the dead for seven days
7. Attaching of God's name in their names etc.
8. They were ruled by elders and priest 
Apart from the fact that the star of David and other bronze medals encrypted with Hebrew codes were discovered in many parts of the Igbo land, apart from the truth that the Igbos greet with the name of YAH (the name of the God of the Israelites) in their gatherings, scholars around the globe have also argued that Aramaic and Igbo languages are the same if not for some little changes 
Example is 
Talithakum- Aramaic
Nta lite kuo ume- Igbo 
In Igbo language, Nta lite kuo ume means "little child wake up and start breathing" which is the same in Aramaic 
2. Genesis
Jee na isi isi- Igbo
Meaning in Igbo as "go to the very first," the same meaning with Genesis.
3. Deuteronomy
Detere nu umu- Igbo
Meaning in Igbos as "written down for the children," the same meaning with Deuteronomy because it serves as a book of laws for the children of God.
4. Sabbath
Asaa bu taa- Igbo
Meaning in Igbo as "today is seventh," the same meaning with Sabbath.
5. Cherubim 
Chere ubim- Igbo
Meaning in Igbo as "guard my home," same meaning of Cherubim
6. Bethel
Be el- Igbo
Meaning in Igbo as "House of God," the same meaning of Bethel. Remember El is God. 
7. Ada
Ada- meaning the first daughter in both languages

CONCLUSION

Evidences are bound- evidences that proves Igbo relationship with Jews or Jews relationship with Igbos. Whichever way you wish to put it, one thing is clear, whether the Igbos descended from the Jews or the Jews descended from the Igbos, they are one. Just as the Israelites are the greatest in science and other things, so also are the Igbos the greatest in science around the world.

EXAMPLE
1. At the time when 20th century rocket science was only a few decades old, Igbos manufactured rockets. C. C. Onoh when quoting Soviet Union Government Official (TELL Magazine) said, "...a country that is not yet two (2) months old that can manufacture Ogbunigwe (Monster Bombs) and rockets must be feared..." That was what the Russians said. They never wanted such a country to rise in Africa that's why they helped to eliminate her at infancy.
2. In 1960s, they refined fuel by themselves in just few months of independence and used it to power their rockets.
3. They built armored cars and tanks during the 1960s in just few months of independence
4. They modified aircraft from trainer to fighters
5. Philip Emeagwali, the father of the internet is of Igbo origin. He founded the fastest computer in the world.
6. Gittens Ikenga is also of Igbo origin. He is the scientist that laid the foundation for construction of modern day aircrafts. He produced an aircraft called Ikenga 530Z Autogiro
WITH ALL THESE, I HOPE THAT PEOPLE SHOULD STOP CRITICIZING MAZI NNAMDI KANU. IF WE ARE TO GO BY OUR TRADITION, IGBOS PRACTICE JUDAISM. WHEN THE EUROPEANS MET THE NORTHERNERS, THE NORTHERNERS TOLD THEM THAT THESE IS A SET OF PEOPLE LIVING ACROSS THE RIVER, THEY ARE THE LOST TRIBE OF JEWS.
