Do you really think that posting yet another person's ignorant website
will support you claim?
Don't you realize that this guy contradicts half the stuff posted by
the last ignorant person you cited?

He claims that they were Israelite seafarers (despite there being no
evidence that such existed). He does NOT claim that the Celts were
Indo-European (i.e. Caucasian)

The last version, that it was the Milesians, DID have them come from
north of the Black Sea, by land, and mentions Eber as one of two
brothers who were a descendant of someone who knew Moses. This is
difficult to reconcile with the Biblical Eber, who was Moses'
ancestor, to say the least.

Hilarious. Galatia was founded by two groups of Gaul mercenaries
hired from northern Greece in 278 BC. There was no "colony of
Israel", which was long gone - that was apart of the remnants of
Alexander the Great's Greek empire. The Gauls had already been in
Europe a long while, having sacked Rome in 390 BC.

The land of the Danes

Nonsense. The Jutes were a Germanic tribe that had no written history
before 500 AD, but probably come from the Old Norse word Iotar. The
Danes were a Scandinavian tribe. Dane comes from the Old Norse word
"dene" meaning "lowland".

Long before even King David.

Doesn't sound like the worship of the God of Israel to me.
[large quantity of irrelevant and often erroneous history deleted.
The guy obviously collected information and misinformation from other
websites and tried to make sense of it, without much knowing anything
to start with. He is hardly a historical reference himself.]
