... Israel while we've been sleeping!

Not only is a lost tribe of Jews in the process of returning from India (claiming to be descendants of Joseph); now we have Noahide proselytes from around the world claiming allegiance to the Seven Laws of Noah [see below].
B'nai Noach, literally "Children of Noah," known as Noahides, are non-Jews who take upon themselves the Torah's obligations for non-Jews - consisting of seven laws passed on from Noah following the flood, as documented in Genesis.
We also discover the reinstitution of the Sanhedrin and the High Council ...
A council of non-Jewish observers of the Seven Laws of Noah has been selected and will be ordained by the reestablished Sanhedrin in Jerusalem this January. ...

The court of 71 rabbis, known as the Sanhedrin, which was reestablished last October in Tiberius following the reinstitution of rabbinic semikha, decided, after numerous requests from the Noahide community, to assist the movement in forming a leadership council.
One goal of the new organization, according to a spokesman for the B'nai Noach, literally "Children of Noah," is a little chilling. They want to ...
... transform the Noahide movement from a religious phenomenon - a curiosity many have not heard of - into a powerful international movement that can successfully compete with, and with G-d's help bring about the fall of, any religious movement but the pure authentic faith that was given to humanity through Noach, the father of us all.
This is as interesting as those seeking to breed red heifers for Yom Kippur.

The Seven Laws of Noah are:
  1. Shefichat damim - Do not murder.
  2. Gezel - Do not steal or kidnap.
  3. Avodah zarah - Do not worship false gods/idols.
  4. Gilui arayot - Do not be sexually immoral (engage in incest, sodomy, bestiality, castration and adultery)
  5. Birkat Hashem - Do not utter G-d's name in vain, curse G-d or pursue the occult.
  6. Dinim - Set up righteous and honest courts and apply fair justice in judging offenders and uphold the principles of the last five.
  7. Ever Min HaChai - Do not eat a part of a live animal.
As Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit would say, "Indeed!" And indeed again! The Sanhedrin may be contacted at "dbtc ATT actco DOTT com".
