The Genealogy of Cushi

Jehudi, whose descendants were referred to as "jews" 276 times in the Holy Bible, was a descendant of Cushi:

Jeremiah 36:14 Therefore all the princes sent Jehudi the son of Nethaniah, the son of Shelemiah, the son of Cushi, unto Baruch, saying, Take in thy hand the roll wherein thou hast read in the ears of the people, and come. So Baruch the son of Neriah took the roll in his hand, and came unto them.

There are only two "Cushi"s mentioned throughout the entire Holy Bible.  One was the people of Cushi, who were descendants of Cush, a son of Ham (a son of Noah), and the other was a descendant of Jacob.  If jews are descendants of Ham, then they are not Semites, Hebrews, children of Abraham, nor Israelites.  If they were to be descendants of Jacob, then they would be all of the above, but they would represent only a small percentage of all, Israelites because this Cushi was born at least 18 generations after Jacob:

Zep 1:1 The word of Jehovah which came unto Zephaniah the son of Cushi, the son of Gedaliah, the son of Amariah, the son of Hezekiah, in the days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah.

2Kings 21:18 And Manasseh slept with his fathers, and was buried in the garden of his own house, in the garden of Uzza: and Amon his son reigned in his stead.

Easton:  Amon--The son of Manasseh, and fourteenth king of Judah. He restored idolatry, and set up the images which his father had cast down. Zephaniah (2Ch_1:4; 2Ch_3:4, 2Ch_3:11) refers to the moral depravity prevailing in this king's reign.

It was the twelve sons and grandsons of Abraham who were the patriarchs of the Twelve Tribes of Israel.  If their offspring and their descendants had two surviving children per family, after 18 generations there would have been 3,125,728 Israelites, only one of whom would have been Jehudi.  So if Jehudi had been a descendant of Jacob, and if it was his descendants who are referred to as "jews" in the Holy Bible, then jews would have been only 0.00000032% of all Israelites.

1st generation = 24

2nd generation = 48

10th generation = 12,288

14th generation = 196,608

18th generation = 3,145,728

How does this compare to recent population growth rates?  At one extreme, even with war, pestilence, disease, famine, and AIDS, the population of the Continent of Africa more than doubled in the last half a century.  If the population of Israelites grew at a similar rate, then rather than being only 3,145,728 Israelites within 18 generations, there could have been more than 20 million, in which case "jews" would have been only 0.00000005% of all Israelites.

At the other extreme, if the Israelite population grew at a rate similar to the US population in the last half century with all it's 30 million abortions and the birth control pill (minus immigration), then there could have been only 150,000 Israelites by that time, in which case jews would have been 0.0000067% of the Israelite population.  The census that Moses took of the Israelites during the Exodus shows in Numbers that there were 1,723,857 Israelites, of which a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 11 would have been jews.

With such a small representation amongst the Israelites, why would this one obscure, rarely mentioned  Israelite have the distinction of having had all of his descendants named "jews"?  What would be the point?  Not even key Israelite patriarchs are mentioned that often: Abraham himself is mentioned only 232 times, Benjamin only 140 times, and Peter only 149 times:

Benjamin = 140

Peter = 149

Abraham = 232

jews = 276

Jacob = 352

Moses = 789

Israel = 2,289

There is not a clue in the entire Holy Bible about Jehudi's descendants being Israelites, nor about why they would have been given such a distinction.

But if Jehudi was a descendant of Ham, and if his descendants were the Edomites and Canaanites and Hittites with whom the Israelites were prohibited from inter-marrying, and with whom they warred over the centuries, then it's understandable why his descendants would have been mentioned almost as often as Jacob.

Thus the Jehudi's mentioned in the Holy Bible are not Israelites, and they never intermarried with Israelites. They were interlopers on Israelite territory then just as they are today. Their only role throughout history has been to kill Christians and Muslims, just as they're doing today in Palestine, just as they did when tens of millions of Christians died in WWII.  The entire purpose of the holocaust hoax was to distract our attention from the fact that the worldwide population of jews increased 5% at a time that the population of White Christian Israelites in Europe was decimated by 12%.
