As prophesied in ancient Hebrew scrolls the 12 tribes of Israel would be in foreign lands and would be called and known by many proverbs and bywords other than what they are an Israelite. Moses in the book of Deuteronomy 28:37 said we would "become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the LORD shall lead thee".
The song writer and prophet Asaph in the book of Psalms chapter 83 prophesied that the enemies of YHWH and HIS people have "taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance". (Psalms 83:3-4)
Similarly the Israelites that were scattered into the Turkey region formally known as Asia-Minor, were known and referred to by their natural hair style along with their current geographical location. As seen in this Random House Dictionary from 1980 under the definition for "Hebrew" you see that the Israelites were known as the Afro-Asiatics. These same people from the house of Judah were referred to in the book of Revelations as John wrote to the seven Israelite assemblies that were in Asia. cf. (Rev. 1:4)
