Why do Celts and Jews look so much alike?
In order to fulfill the "restoration" promise of Hosea 1:10,11 the offspring of both the children of Judah and the children of Israel would have to come from a common ethnic group (Israelite) and display many common characteristics. This despite continual intermarrying (and marrying outside the Israelite stream) for over 3,500 years beginning at least as early as Joseph marrying the non-Israelite Egyptian woman Asenath and producing Ephraim and Manasseh.
In reality, it is generally difficult to distinguish between Northern and Southern Kingdom Israelites, even 3,000 years after they split, and countless marriages outside the tribes. The people on the following short list of Jews, both self-identified and named at such public sites as www.jewhoo.com, look very much like ordinary non-Jewish Celts from anywhere else in the world.
Joseph Lieberman, Paul Newman, Ted Koppel, Harrison Ford, Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., Kirk Douglas, Kevin Costner, Stephen Breyer, Yitzhak Rabin, Michael Landon, Lorne Greene, Mike Wallace, Benjamin Netanyahu, William Shatner, Douglas Fairbanks, Cary Grant, Leonard Bernstein, Paul Simon, Ariel Sharon, David Frost, Morley Safer, Ari Fleischer,
Jack Benny, Alan King, Casper Weinberger, Carl Reiner, George Burns, Red Buttons, Sam Levinson, Bernard Goldberg, Robert Downey Jr., Dustin Hoffman, Michael Douglas, Peter Sellers, Tony Curtis, Edward G.

Barry Goldwater, Robert Rubin, William Roth, Howard Metzenbaum, Hyman Rickover, Robert Reich, Russ Feinberg, Stanley Mosk, Arthur Burns, Milton Friedman, Irving Kristol, Victor Borge, William Kristol, Warren Rudman, etc, etc, etc...
The Celts and Jews are genetic cousins who look much more like each other than like anyone else on earth. Both are offspring of Jacob/Israel, and are Hebrews, Semites, and Israelites.
