First of all, I am an Irishman and neither Christian nor Muslim but I follow the tradition that was handed down to me by my ancestors. My ancestors knew of Moses in the time that the Jews sojourned in Aretz Mitzraim for they were in that same place at that same time. Indeed our legends tell of Moses curing one of their number of a snake bight and promising him that in the land which he would inherit there would be no snakes. From that day to this there are no snakes native to Ireland.

As well, there were those of my own who were there when Moses ascended the Holy Moubntain to recieve the "Great Law" and they bore witness to that miracle. So long before the comming of Yeshua "THAT" which was and is "TRUTH we knew of these things to be written in the blood of our veins and the very marrow of our bones. SO, we have no need of books to inform our minds nor do we take what men have written as truth beyond questioning. For in truth we have seen that men of great ambition and lust for power have sought to pervert the "HOLY WORD" to serve their own ends and we will have none of these doings. We reject the words of the apostate Shauul benTarshish whom you call St Paul and likewise all of those who came after him in the manner of the Romans and Greeks. Nor do we hold with that council of fools called Nicea or the Roman Constantine and those who came after him.

From our youth we learn as boy and girl to travel the way of the soul and in our meditations we do pierce the veil of time and tavel back to the beginnings of worlds and the birth of that first man upon the earth and we have followed him through out all of his sojourning upon the land. We have witnessed the rise and fall of great nations, the glory and folly of men and those whos ambition far in exceeded their wit and we have born witness to their folly and liklewise their glory. Mine are an ancient folk and we have a long memory, an unbroken line from the earliest of times so each one of us grows to be an archive of the history of man in the world. We know what men have written and what actually happened in those times and we are set to give the lie to the braggart and the boaster and all those who would seek to pervert the record of history to serve their own ends.

Of Shauul the apostate whom you call the apostle we have little regard for we see him as a braggart and a fool for the witness he was false in that he claimed that Yeshua was the end of the Great law. Yeshua was and is the living embodiment of the law and such was born witness in the deeds of his living in the world. The great gift that Yeshua bestowed was indeed his humanity and he came amongst not as a god but as a man, a very human and humane man. The fantastic stories of his birth and growing up in the world as told by the Romans and Greeks are but fantastical fabrications of the imagination haveing nothing to do with the truth. We know of his growing up and of his learning in the halls of the wise of his time, of those who were his teachers, The GREAT Gamaliel and of Hillel the wise and of his learning the arts of argument in the Law from a very early age. Yeshua was a good student and an avid learner and from the beginning he excelled in the way. Indeed it was remarked amongst all who knew him that he was a genious or unprecedented talent. Even at the age of twelve years he could argue the finer points of the Law before the elders to the amazement of all present. Yeshua himself would tell you that salvation was not in him but it was and is in the "GREAT LAW" which became his life and his living in the world. But you know it not preferring the babbling of the Greeks and Romans. Dream on with your fantastical imaginings to your own delight but do not burden me with your tales.
