According to 2 Kings 17 in the Old Testament/Tanakh, the Israelites of the Northern Kingdom were exiled by the Assyrians to the cities of Media. Ancient Media occupied the same geographic region as present-day Kurdistan, and the Medes were a Kurdish tribe (or rather a Northwestern Iranic tribe. The ethnonym Kurd didn't exist then. Kurdish is a Northwestern Iranic language).
A lot of Westerners have tried to discover the lost tribes of Israel, and the search for the lost tribes of Israel led to the creation of the infamous theory of British Israelism, which is outright nonsense. No evidence of Israelite tribes moving to the British Isles exists.
The lost tribes of Israel were largely assimilated into the native Iranic population, but some Northern Israelites kept the Jewish faith. The Kurdish Jews claim descent from the Northern Israelites. The apocryphal book of Tobit describes the life of exiled Northern Israelites, who kept the Jewish faith.
The Kurds aren't the sole non-Jewish descendants of the lost tribes of Israel. The Pashtuns are descendants of the lost tribes of Israel too. The Pashtuns being descendants of the lost tribes of Israel is hardly surprising, because the Median Empire encompassed Kurdistan, Iran, Afghanistan and Turkey east of Kizilirmak River, which flows to the east of Ankara, but close to Ankara.
The ancient ties between the Kurds and the Jews still exists. Most Kurds currently support the State of Israel, and the State of Israel supports Kurdish independence from Iraq. The KRG has granted Kurdish Jews living in Israel a right of return to Kurdistan, while no Arab country has granted the Jews a right of return.
Israel must never relinquish sovereignty over the Temple Mount and the Old City of Jerusalem!

BIJI KURDISTAN!
AM YISRAEL CHAI!

According to the Declaration of Arbroath the Scots are descended from one of the lost tribes of Israel. Support for Israel used to be strong in Scotland but that has switched to the Palestinians due mainly to Israel's treatment of Palestinians and unfair taxation on Christian property.

The Scots being descended from one of the lost tribes of Israel is extremely unlikely. No evidence exists of exiled Israelites moving to the British Isles. According to the Old Testament, the lost tribes of Israel were exiled to present-day Kurdistan, and there is no reason to assume, that they have moved from present-day Kurdistan to the British Isles.
Saladin, who was a Kurd, allowed the Jews to return to Jerusalem, when he liberated Jerusalem from the Crusaders, who massacred the Jews of Jerusalem, when they conquered Jerusalem.

Christians ought to support the State of Israel rather than the Palestinians, because the Old Covenant remains valid after the resurrection of Jesus Christ alongside the New Covenant. In addition, the State of Israel grants full freedom of religion to Christians and other religious minorities. The Palestinians demanding East Jerusalem is unreasonable, because the Temple Mount is the holiest place in Judaism, while it ranks below Mecca and Medina in Islam, and Jerusalem is the holiest city in Judaism. The Old City of Jerusalem is part of East Jerusalem.
I prefer a one-state solution with Israeli Jews and Palestinians having equal rights, but that's unlikely to work, because anti-Semitism and Islamism are widespread among Palestinians. The best realistic option is the State of Israel unilaterally removing the Jewish settlements from most of the West Bank, as envisaged by Ariel Sharon. Israel ought to keep East Jerusalem and the large Jewish settlement blocks adjacent to Israel proper. The rest of the West Bank ought to remain occupied by the Israel Defense Forces, but under the rule of the Palestinian Authority in civil matters.

Christians ought to support right. But in the Israel-Palestine conflict that is usually, but not exclusively, the Israelis, who are unfairly and often outrageously maligned in the West. For example, Israel generally teaches the Palestinians well. Your ideas about what should happen in the Holy Land are actually reasonable. A two-state solution should be the ultimate aim, but with Hamas ruling in Gaza and the terrorist friendly PLO in charge in the West Bank, that's unlikely to come about.

Certainly Palestinians deserve better than Fatah and Hamas, and the fact that Arab states are losing interest in the cause and more concerned with the Iranian regime which itself is a main backer of the terrorist groups in question.

Whilst I too am a Christian who supports the State of Israel, I certainly do not support your Dual Covenant Theology. My opinions on the State of Israel come from observing the practical realities of the situation, regardless of my supersessionist understanding of the covenants.
