Finally you might be interested in Mathis’s latest post “Jewish Pirates” by his guest “Long John Silverman”.
It links the Phonecians/Jews directly to the peg-legs and parrot-on-shoulder brigands, via Sephardi.
According to him
=Sea Peoples (14C BC)
And all from mainstream sources too.
The Wikipedia page on piracy gives you a lot of clues, if you know what to look for. One of the biggest clues are these two sentences, conspicuously stuck right next to each other:
The earliest documented instances of piracy are the exploits of the Sea Peoples who threatened the ships sailing in the Aegean and Mediterranean waters in the 14th century BC. In classical antiquity, the Phoenicians, Illyrians and Tyrrhenians were known as pirates.
Wikipedia is all but admitting what our historians do gymnastics to avoid admitting: Sea Peoples = Phoenicians. Just as we suspected. We can ignore “Illyrians” and “Tyrrhenians,” which are just poorly devised synonyms for Phoenicians. Wiki tells us Tyrrhenian is simply what the Greeks called a non-Greek person, but then it states that Lydia was “the original home of the Tyrrhenians,” which belies the fact that they were known by the Greeks as a specific people from a specific place, not just any old non-Greek person. Wiki then cleverly tells us “Spard” or “Sard” was a name “closely connected” to the name Tyrrhenian, since the Tyrrhenian city of Lydia was called Sardis by the Greeks. (By the way, coins were first invented in Lydia – so they were some of the earliest banksters). But that itself is misleading, since the Lydians also called themselvesŚfard. Nowhere is the obvious suggested – that Spard/Śfard looks a lot like Sephardi, as in
Sephardi Jews. These refer to Jews from the Iberian Peninsula (Spain and Portugal), the word coming from Sepharad, a place mentioned in the book of Obadiah whose location is lost to history. But Wiki then tells us:
It is speculated that Sepharad could have been Sardis, whose native Lydian name is Sfard.
So they do admit the connection, just on a different page. It is amazing how much Wiki actually admits once you string together a few Wiki pages. We also learn that the Egyptians referred to Lydia/Sardis as “Srdn” in their inscriptions. That puts us in mind of Sardinia, an island in the Tyrrhenian Sea, as well as Sidon in Lebanon, one of the chief cities of the Phoenicians. Tracing these variations, you can plainly see the westward expansion of the Phoenician thalassocracy from Sidon to Sardinia to Sardis to the Sephardic people of Iberia (the word “Iberia” itself is a variant of “Hebrew”). As the Phoenicians sailed westward, they took their favorite place names with them. Remember they did the same thing with Beirut (Britain) and Tyre (Tyrrhenian), other Phoenician cities in Lebanon.
As for Illyrians, this other “ill-defined” coastal people, one of their first great rulers as noted in their mythology was Cadmus, a Phoenician prince. So the Illyrians were also Phoenicians.
Pulling this all together, we can complete the syllogism:
Pirates = Sea Peoples = Tyrrhenians/Illyrians/Phoenicians/Sephardim = Jews
What’s telling is that the word “Jewish” does not appear anywhere on Wikipedia’s page on piracy. However, since we’ve established that the ancient pirates were crypto-Jewish, let’s spring forward to the Golden Age of Piracy – from whence we get our modern stereotype of the peg- legged, swashbuckling variety – to see if there is any connection. If you Google “Jewish Pirates”, you’ll come across a book called Jewish Pirates of the Caribbean by Edward Kritzler, published in 2009. Here’s a snippet from the book overview on Amazon:
The word crypto-Jew means crypto-leader. Mathis. The two are synonymous.
