The Eagle is the symbol of the so-called "Tribe of Manasseh," named after a son of Joseph, the pharaoh's dream-analyst, and man with the "coat of many colors" (zodiac). In reality Joseph was Yuya, the wealthiest man in the world during the time of the Pharaoh Tuthmosis IV. Yuya held the highest office, and was probably connected to the Hyksos Kings of Egypt. He was one of 12 "Brothers," that is a cryptic reference to his priestly (masonic) rank. He was second in command after the pharaoh of his time. In Egyptian and Hindi the word Akha (Akhe-naton) means "Eye." The hierogram for the word Akhem or Akha was an eagle. The eye and the eagle are therefore closely related and have long been symbols for royalty, especially Egyptian royalty. The name Akhenaton means the Eye of Aton. Manasseh is, therefore, a cover term and idea for the Atonists, and their conquest of America.
Although he [Yuya] never reigned as a pharaoh he was the unseen authority behind the thrones of Amenhotep III and Akhenaton. Lately identified as the prototype for the biblical Joseph, he was the richest man in the world after the pharaoh who promoted him. He possessed many illustrious titles. Pharaoh Amenhotep III awarded him the title "Father of a God," a title later passed to his son Aye. Since his daughter Tiye was the mother of Akhenaton, Yuya was the grandfather of the man who would become the most notorious pharaoh in Egypt's long history. His son Aye, the uncle of Akhenaton, would also go on to be a major player in the story of the Atonists. Yuya and his wife Tuya were among the major educators and caretakers of the young Akhenaton. They were Israelites descended from the Hyksos people and were probably of elite rank within that allegedly foreign race. This is probably the reason why Yuya bore the illustrious title "Father to a Pharaoh." It is believed that one of his wives, Asenath, was the daughter of the chief priest of the sun at Heliopolis. Yuya cleverly arranged matters so that his daughter Tiye married Pharaoh Amenhotep III, the son of Tuthmosis IV, who had first honored him. Yuya (Joseph) was descended from Yakobaam/Jacoba/Jacob, an earlier Hyksos pharaoh. In the bible we are toldthat Jacob’s name was changed to Israel, hence the Hyksos people can be known as “Israelites.”If Yuya was indeed the same man as the biblical Joseph it is interesting to note that he served as the chief "tax collector" in charge of the seizure and acquisition of many private estates. The seven years of famine also helped Joseph prosper since, as the bible states, the rich of many lands came to Egypt to purchase grain. More importantly, for our investigations, the bible reveals that Joseph's initial benefactor, Potiphar, was a sun priest of the city of On, or Heliopolis. In Hebrew the name Potiphar means "powerful pharaoh" and in Coptic it means "belonging to the sun." In his fine books author, Ahmed Osman, writes about the effect Yuya's mummified visage had upon him. He relates how his discovery of the connection between Yuya and the biblical Joseph led him to his masterly revisionist readings of the bible and Egyptian history.
Tuya’s mummy had been found with that of her husband Yuya in their small joint tomb (KV. 46) in the Valley of the Kings. Their son-in-law Amenhotep III had honored them with a grand burial, filled the tomb with fabulous gold coffins and death masks, a gilded chariot, inlaid furniture, well-stuffed cushions, a jewel casket and wig box, perfume jars and sandals…Yuya in particular is regarded as the best-preserved Egyptian mummy…Both he and his wife also have bright yellow hair, originally taken as evidence for their supposed foreign origins, equally, perhaps, it may have been the effect of embalming fluids on their otherwise white hair, or evidence of a pale henna rinse
Like this writer, the researcher Ralph Ellis does not buy into the migration of Abraham and Sarah story. He believes that Abraham and Sarah did not come from Sumeria into Egypt in the manner commonly described. Ellis, like the great revisionist Comyns Beaumont before him, believes that Abraham (from Ab'ram meaning "of Ra the Father") was the first pharaoh of the Hyksos dynasty. Abraham may have gone with his sister and wife Sarah towards Thebes (in southern Egypt) after a famine broke out in his own Northern kingdom. According to Ellis it was during this journey that the Theban king fell in love with Sarai and took her for his wife. The Southern pharaoh in question was none other than Tuthmosis III. And so, it was he, and not Abraham, who was the true father of the so-called Twelve Tribes of Israel. They were in fact the Twelve Tribes of Aton. Since the Hyksos were rulers in the North (Lower Egypt, Delta region), they would have had dominion over the pyramids and over Heliopolis, the capital of solar worship. Hence, Akhenaton's zeal for just that kind of worship and iconography. Ellis suggests that prior to the reign of Akhenaton, the Levite Yuya (the biblical Joseph) acted as an agent for the expelled Hyksos and returned to ingratiate himself with the pharaoh Amenhotep I. Ellis believes that he was successful and became a powerful presence behind the thrones of Tuthmosis III, Tuthmosis IV, Amenhotep III,and Akhenaton. Yuya and his family were the richest personalities in the entire world at that time, after the pharaoh himself.
Queen Tiye was a remarkable woman. The young Amenhotep married her at the beginning of his reign. She was not of royal blood, not a foreign princess, but the daughter of a civil-servant and provincial priest, Yuya. She was not like other queens before her, completely overshadowed by their royal husbands. In the past there had been a woman on the throne of Egypt - Hatshepsut, about a hundred years earlier - but none of the royal wives ever had such prominence as Tiye
Yuya (Yusuf) was the principle minister for the eighteenth dynasty Pharaoh Tuthmoses IV (c.1413-1405 BC) and for his son Amenhotep III…His tomb was discovered in 1905, along with that of his wife Tuya (the Asenath), and the mummies of Yuya and Tuya are among the very best preserved in the Cairo Museum…Clearly, this couple were of tremendous importance in their day; this becomes obvious from Yuya’s funerary papyrus, which refers to him as ‘The Holy Father of the Lord of the Two Lands’…as does his royal funerary statuette
Yuya's (Joseph's) power was enhanced and solidified after his daughter Tiye was betrothed and wedded to the young Pharaoh Amenhotep III (1382-1344 BC). This fortuitous marriage sealed the Israelite/Levite (Hyksos) line with the native Egyptian one. There is little doubt in our mind that if Amenhotep was not himself of Hyksos descent, his second wife Tiye most certainly was.
Before we explore what the term "Israelite" truly referred to let us just emphasize the great power that Yuya and his family enjoyed. Being made viceroy and vizier by the pharaoh gave him complete power over the entire country. It is likely that he and his wife were descendants of the Hyksos kings of previous dynasties, and of the Levites resident in Avaris at the time.
Tuthmosis IV died relatively young (before 30) and left a very young Amenhotep III (also of mixed blood) in the hands of the priests. Amenhotep III (the prototype for the biblical king Solomon) could only have been between 2 and 12 years of age when he was made pharaoh of Egypt. Because of his young age others stepped in to take control of Egypt from behind the throne. The two most likely candidates were his step-parents - the Israelites - Yuya and Tuya. Scholars recognize their Israelite origins and investigators such as Moustafa Gadalla, Ahmed Osman, and Ralph Ellis, are convinced (as we are) that Yuya was the biblical patriarch Joseph, the previous pharaoh's (Tuthmosis IV) "dream-analyst" and man with the "coat of many colors." Ellis states that this Joseph (Yuya) had been elevated to high command and was not only the second most powerful Egyptian after pharaoh, he was the world's wealthiest human being.
