British Israelism

Cameron was part of the British-Israelite Movement believing the Anglo-Saxon peoples of the world and their descendents originated with the Biblical tribes of Israel. He was closely associated with the Anglo-Saxon Federation and served on their executive committee.[1] Cameron interpreted the Bible as a racial book and was the first to claim "The Jews are not God’s chosen people."[2] This began the transition of the doctrine of British Israelism into Christian Identity.

Cameron was also a large donator to fundamentalist minister Gerald Winrod.
