Unfortunately for the people of the world everything is going according to the New World Order Plan. But what is this New World Order Plan? In a nutshell the Plan is this. The Dark Agenda of the secret planners of the New World Order is to reduce the world’s population to a “sustainable” level “in perpetual balance with nature” by a ruthless Population Control Agenda via Population and Reproduction Control. A Mass Culling of the People via Planned Parenthood, toxic adulteration of water and food supplies, release of weaponised man-made viruses, man-made pandemics, mass vaccination campaigns and a planned Third World War. Then, the Dark Agenda will impose upon the drastically reduced world population a global feudal-fascist state with a World Government, World Religion, World Army, World Central Bank, World Currency and a micro-chipped population. In short, to kill 90% of the world’s population and to control all aspects of the human condition and thus rule everyone, everywhere from the cradle to the grave.
“The name Sephardim, designating the Spanish and Portuguese Jews comes from the biblical book, Obadiah, verse 20, ‘…the exiles of Jerusalem who are in the Sepharad shall possess the cities of Negeb’ … The name Ashkenazim, designating the German Jews comes from Genesis 10:2, ‘The sons of Gomer, Ashkenaz, Riphath and Togarmah’…” Ludwig Albrecht, In Die Geschichte des Volkes Israel (The History of the People of Israel) 1926
A thousand years before the establishment of the Zionist State of Israel, there also existed a nominally Jewish kingdom on the eastern fringes of Europe. This was the Kingdom of the Khazars astride the Don and Volga rivers. The kingdom of Khazaria was ruled over by two monarchs and inhabited by a mixed population that included people who professed to be descendants of Judah: to be “the Jews” of the Bible.
The Khazars were a Turkic people who originated in Central Asia and it is believed that reddish hair was predominant among them before the Mongol conquests that altered their gene pool. The Khazars originally nomads who believed in Tengri shamanism and spoke a Turkic language. The earliest history of the Khazars in southern Russia before the middle of the 6th century is obscure. However, from about 550 to 630, the Khazars were part of the Western Turkish Empire, ruled by the Celestial Blue Turks (Kök Turks). The Khazars gained their independence following civil wars in the middle of the 7th century that broke up the Western Turkish Empire. As is the case with every inchoative nation arising from old empires, the Khazars adopted the familiar practices of their former masters, the Kök khaganate, such as following the same guidelines as the Kök Turks regarding the succession of kings. The Khazars eventually absorbed Judaism, Islam and Christianity, learned Hebrew and Slavic, and became settled in cities and towns throughout the north Caucasus and Ukraine. Khazaria flourished for approximately 800 years from the 5th to the 13th century when it foundered and collapsed. The dual-monarchy system of Khazaria was a Turkic imperial structure under which the khagan ’emperor’ was the supreme king and the bek ‘king’ was the civilian army leader. The khagans originally came from the Turkic Asena ruling family that had provided khagans for other Central Asian nations in the early medieval period.
Khazaria extended from the Black Sea to the Caspian and from the Caucasus to the Volga and its military power played a major role in principal wars in the Caucasus region. In the early 7th century, the Khazars aided the Byzantine emperor Heraclius (reigned 610-41) in his campaign against Persian State and in the 7th and 8th centuries, they defended the south-eastern frontier of Europe from invasion by the Arabs. Although victory passed repeatedly from Arab to Khazar, Arab counterattacks finally compelled the Khazars to permanently withdraw north of the Caucasus. These hostilities are the so-called Arab-Khazar Wars, which effectively stopped Islamic incursions into eastern Christendom. Khazaria therefore acting as a buffer state between the Islamic world and the Christian world and prevented Islam from significantly spreading north of the Caucasus Mountains. But, there was a problem: by the mid-8th century its own power was becoming encroached by two major world powers: the Eastern Roman Empire centred at Byzantium and the triumphant followers of Muhammad.
The Khazar Empire, representing a significant third force, was courted by the other two powers that both pressured it to adopt their respective religion. It appeared that Khazaria could only maintain its political and ideological independence by rejecting both Christianity and Islam, for either choice would have automatically subordinated it to the authority of the Roman Emperor or the Caliph of Baghdad. Not wishing to be dominated by either of the two, the khagan did a canny thing: he embraced the Jewish faith in AD 740 and ordered his subjects to do the same. Furthermore, by resisting the blandishments of both Byzantium and the Caliphate and deciding to convert to Judaism, the third monotheistic religion, Khazaria retained its neutrality between Christianity and Islam.
Moreover, by adopting Judaism it was not only a symbol of political independence for Khazaria, but that it also held the balance of power between Muslim Caliphate and the Christian Byzantine Empire. The political influence of Khazaria was reflected in its close relations with the Byzantine emperors: Justinian II (704) and Constantine V (732) who each had a Khazar wife. Although the circumstances of the conversion are obscure and the depth of acceptance of Judaism difficult to assess the fact is undisputed the khagan and the greater part of the ruling class became Hebraic. One account tells us that this conversion was a result of migration of refugee Jews fleeing the Mazdaq rebellion in Persia, the persecutions of Byzantine emperors Leo III and Romanus I Lecapenus, and for a variety of other reasons, from modern-day Uzbekistan, Armenia, Hungary, Syria, Turkey, Iraq. Since merchants from every nation found protection and good faith in the Khazar cities, so too did the Jew. The Jews, expelled from numerous places sought a home in Khazaria, developed the Khazar trade, and contended with Mahommedans and Christians for the theological allegiance of the pagan people. And so these refugee Jews apparently offered their religion to the Khazar whom found it better than their own and accepted it.
Khazaria reached its zenith of power in the interval between the decline of the Mohammedan Empire and the rise of Russia. In 861, when the Khazars sent to Constantinople for a Christian teacher Cyril was selected and was accompanied by his brother, Methodius. These brothers came from Greek nobility whose family was connected with the senate of Thessalonica, and whose mother, Maria, may have been Slavic. Although Cyril and Methodius converted many of the people their overall mission was a failure because by that time the Khazars had already adopted a basic level of Judaism (Pharisiasm) that had become rooted in their hearts. However, their success elsewhere in the region, converting many of the Slavs to Christianity, earned them the title “Apostles of the Slavs.” In 861, after holding a debate between representatives of the Jewish, Christian (Cyril and Methodius) and Muslim faiths, Khagan Bulan chose to adopted Judaism. Judaism thus became the official state religion of the Khazars and under the leadership of khagans Bulan and Obadiah, the orthodox rabbinical form of the Jewish religion spread among the hitherto pagan Khazars. Obadiah later established synagogues and Jewish schools in Khazaria thereby fostering knowledge of the Mishnah, Talmud, and Torah, which thus became important to Khazars. The proselytism of Khazaria accelerated until the Khazar kingdom began to be described as the “Kingdom of the Jews” by contemporary chroniclers.
Succeeding Khazar rulers took Jewish names, and during the late 9th Century the Khazar kingdom became a safe haven for dispossessed Jews from other lands. By the 10th century, the Khazars wrote using Hebrew-Aramaic letters and all extant important Khazar documents from that period are in Hebrew. Russian archaeologists have established that at least in the Don river valley Jewish communities were well established in the kingdom. A Ukrainian professor, Omeljan Pritsak, estimated that there were as many as 30,000 Jews in Khazaria by the 10th century.
By the 10th century, faced with the growing might of the Pechenegs to their north and west and of the Russians around Kiev, Khazaria suffered a decline. Then in 965, the Rus Prince Svyatoslav, the ruler of Kiev, launched a campaign against the Khazars that crushed their power. In 1016 joint expedition of Russians and Byzantines removed what little political influence remained within Khazaria while the last trace of the kingdom of Khazaria was finally extinguished in 1239 by the Mongol invasion of Balu Khan. Although the Khazars continued to be mentioned in historical documents as late as the 12th century they appeared to have walked off the stage of history. Furthermore, despite the relative sophistication of Khazar civilisation and the wealth of information about the Khazars preserved in Byzantine and Arab sources, not a single line of the Khazar language has survived. Following the collapse of their empire, the Khazar people slipped into anonymity some of them migrated west and north into Russia, Hungary, Romania and Poland.
Although the Khazar people my have disappeared from the historical record their brief presence in it, and apparent disappearance from it, has caused a storm of controversy in recent years. The contention centres on the question of whether the Khazars were proper Jews religiously and whether they were proper Jews racially. Moreover, whether they are the antecedents of Eastern European Jewryoften called the Ashkenazim. The Ashkenazim themselves obviously think so. According to the Jewish Encyclopedia the majority of pagan Khazaria suddenly converted to the Jewish religion in 620, or more probably in 740, following their khagan of and his grandees. King Joseph in a letter sent about 960 to one Shaprut gives the following account of the conversion:
“Some centuries ago King Bulan reigned over the Khazars. To him God appeared in a dream and promised him might and glory. Encouraged by this dream, Bulan went by the road of Darlan to the country of Ardebil, where he gained great victories [over the Arabs]. The Byzantine emperor and the caliph of the Ishmaelites sent to him envoys with presents, and sages to convert him to their respective religions. Bulan invited also wise men of Israel, and proceeded to examine them all. As each of the champions believed his religion to be the best, Bulan separately questioned the Mohammedans and the Christians as to which of the other two religions they considered the better. When both gave preference to that of the Jews, that king perceived that it must be the true religion. He therefore adopted it.”
On the thorny subject of the conversion of Khazaria and the depth of the acceptance of Judaism by the overall population the Jewish Encyclopedia states the following on the subject using an alternate spelling of Khazars:
“Chazars: A people of Turkish origin whose life and history are interwoven with the very beginnings of the history of the Jews of Russia … It was probably about that time that the chaghan [khagan] of the Chazars and his grandees, together with a large number of his heathen people, embraced the Jewish religion… the conversion took place in 620; according to others, in 740 … [the] account of the conversion was considered to be of a legendary nature. Arkady, however … proved from Arabic and Slovenian sources that the religious disputation at the Chazarian court is a historical fact. Even the name of [Isaac] Sangari has been found in a liturgy of Constantine the Philosopher [Cyrill]. It was one of the successors of Bulan, named Obadiah, who regenerated the kingdom and strengthened the Jewish religion. He invited Jewish scholars to settle in his dominions, and founded synagogues and schools…. From the work “Kitab al-Buldan,” written about the ninth it appears as if all the Chazars were Jews and that they had been converted to Judaism only a short time before that book was written”
In The New Standard Jewish Encyclopedia: under the heading “Khazars” we find:
“Khazars: A Turkish … tribe which settled in the lower Volga region … In the 8th cent., a powerful Judaizing movement manifested itself among the K. [Khazars]. Ultimately, about 786-809, their king Bulan and 4,000 of his nobles accepted Judaism, the prince Obadiah being active in securing their Judaization. “
And under the heading “Proselytes,” The New Standard Jewish Encyclopedia states the following:
“Proselytes: … in the 8th-9th cents. there was a widespread conversion movement among the Khazars, led by the king and embracing other classes, and in W. Europe too, numerous persons continued to enter Judaism …”
Similarly, The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia, under the heading “Khazars,” begins its synonymous narrative by repeating essentially the same information:
“Khazars, a medieval people, probably related to the Volga Bulgars, whose ruling class adopted Judaism during the 8th cent.”
Bernard Lazare (1865-1903) was a journalist who gained fame as the first defender of Captain Dreyfus, the French army officer of Jewish descent who was falsely imprisoned for treason in 1894, and thus the first Drefusyard. Moreover, he was perhaps the first French Jewish intellectual to commit fully to Zionism as a political solution to the “Jewish Problem.” In his book, Antisemitism: Its History and Causessummarises the Khazarian conversion to Judaism:
“About 620 they [the Jews] converted there a whole tribe, the Khazars, whose territory was in the neighbourhood of Astrakhan. Legend seized upon this fact, which greatly stirred up the Jews of the West, but … [in spite] of this; there can be no doubt about it. Isidore Of Seville a contemporary of the event, mentions it, and afterwards Chasdai Ibn-Shaprut, minister of the Khalif Abd-er-Rahman, corresponded with Joseph, the last Khagan of the Khazars, whose kingdom was destroyed by Svyatoslav, prince of Kieff … The [Judaized] Khazars exercised a great influence over the neighbouring Slav tribes, the Polyane, Syeveryane and Vyatichi, and made numerous proselytes among them.”
People under Khazar dominion included the Bulgars, Burtas, Ghuzz, Magyars, the Gothic and Greek colonies of the Crimea, and the Slavonic tribes in the north-western woodland. Khazaria was therefore a melting pot of racial types that were not of the bloodline of Judah and therefore not true Jews mentioned so frequently in the Bible. And there lies the rub: the special status of the Jew in Scripture as “God’s chosen people” is compromised if it can be found that the modern Jew can not prove the blood in his veins flowed, so to speak, in the veins of Abraham and King David. The plea that they are the Covenant People of the Bible and are deserving of special treatment falls flat on its face if the Ashkenazim are not the progeny of “Jewish Khazaria,” but also that, if indeed they are, that Khazaria was predominantly Gentile and not properly Jewish at all. Recent research has dispelled much of the mystery of Khazaria but has also opened up a can of worms for the proper understanding of the “Jewish Problem” as Theodor Herzl the supposed creator of Zionism described it.
The book that started the modern debate was The Thirteenth Tribeby Arthur Koestler(1905-83) published in 1976. Koestler was a Jewish Hungarian émigré who adopted British citizenship and was an honest man who realised not only the absurdity of Communism but also its inherent Evil and his misguided youthful enthusiasm for it. Unlike many of his contemporaries, the clever liberals and intellectuals like Sartre and Brecht, who waxed lyrical about the joys of Stalinism while “Uncle Joe” himself plotted the murder of millions. Moreover, since 1948, since the creation of Zionist Israel in Palestine, the question “who is a Jew” has been the subject of endless debate. At the heart of the debate is the perennial refrain that “the Jews” -the Modern Tribe of Jews– are the Chosen People and God Himself gifted the land of Palestine to them, “the seed of Abraham,” the Tribe of Judah and “the Jews” of the Bible (Gen. 17; Lev. 26:42). For, in the Old Testament, in the Book of Genesis, we find that Abram described as the only true believer residing in the great Chaldean city of Ur. Following the death of his wife, Abram was instructed by God to move away from Mesopotamia and into Canaan, which he obeyed. He lived as a nomad and everywhere he camped he built an altar and worshipped God.
Famine forced him to move into Egypt, but God told him to return to Canaan, for that was the land He had promised to give to the new nation to be founded by Abram under God’s protection. In recognition of his faith and to commemorate His gift of national greatness, God changed Abram’s name to Abraham, “father of nations.” Abraham had remarried, to Sarah, and both had grown old, and yet still they did not have children. Then Sarah give birth to a son Isaac, and it was through him, this Isaac, that God would deliver the promise of national greatness and divine favour. Whilst Isaac was still a boy, God tested Abraham’s faith by instructing him to take Isaac to a distant mountain and sacrifice him there. Abraham obeyed, and with a heavy heart bound is beloved son to an altar, he then raised the knife ready to strike, when God’s angel intervened stopping the mortal blow. A ram, caught in a nearby bush, was sacrificed instead. God then repeated his promises to Abraham, namely, national greatness for his descendants. God had thus concluded a covenant with Abraham and had thus entered into a special relationship with Abraham and his descendants; and as a sign of this covenant he enjoined on them the rite of circumcision.
The great prophet of Yahweh, Moses, renewed the covenant gifted upon Abraham and his progeny on Mount Sinai when, before the giving of the Law, he and his people, the Israelites, pledged to keepYahweh’s Covenant. (Exod. 19: 8). To signify the mystical union of Israel and its God, Moses, after the giving of the Law, “took [half of] the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said, Behold the blood of the covenant, which the Lord hath made with you concerning all these words” and half upon the altar of the Lord (Exod. 24: 6-8). This is the Abrahamic Covenant that not only determined the religious character of the descendants of Abraham as the Chosen People of Yahweh but is also the Divine mandate that justifies in perpetuity the Israelite claim to Canaan.
However, it is the Modern Tribe of Jews that has come forward as claimant of this ancient promise. And certain Christian and most Jewish authorities uphold this claim. Moreover, to these Zionists, both Christian and Jewish, and Christian Zionists there is no doubt on the matter other than getting the land and keeping it by whatever means necessary.
This is the rationale behind the connivance with Nazidom in the assault on European Jewry, the terrorism against the British Mandate authority and indigenous Arab population, and the ruthless destruction of enemies both external and internal. It is also the rationale behind the British-Israelite movement initiated in the 1860s from within Freemasonry to establish a Jewish-Masonic State in the Turkish province of Palestine. The creation of a One World Government is an imperative in Dark Freemasonry that the outer brethren, who are deliberately kept in ignorance by their masters, are just as unaware as the majority of the world’s population who are not Freemasons. For, the ultimate goal in Dark Freemasonry is not the establishment of the Zionist State of Israel but the establishment of the Freemasonic World Empire with its One World Religion centred in the rebuilt third Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem.
“As the navel is set in the centre of the human body, so is the land of Israel the navel of the world … situated in the centre of the world, and Jerusalem in the centre of the land of Israel, and the sanctuary in the centre of Jerusalem, and the holy place in the centre of the sanctuary, and the ark in the centre of the holy place, and the foundation stone before the holy place, because from it the world was founded.” Midrash Tanchuma, Qedoshim.
The Khazar question therefore falls into the category of debate that lies at the very heart of the Ancient Agenda for World Government that is the Great Conspiracy against God brought to Earth. A question that involves the nature of Creation, the nature of humanity’s function in Creation, the nature of the Incarnation of Christ, the nature of the Jewish role in the historical process and the nature of Jews themselves. It is also perforce concerned with the Great Conspiracy against God. For, out of Khazaria arose the families whose bloodlines go back far into antiquity and who are today the powerful banking dynasties that are an integral part of the Evil conspiracy against God. This is fundamental to understanding of the “Jewish Problem” and how it has been perverted by an Evil Cabal of Black Adepts, that has worked to bring the Kingdom of Evil to fruition on Earth since at least 4000 BC.
Reader, understand this: the wicked and Evil people who seek to destroy Western Civilisation founded upon the Christ Impulse released during the Mystery at Golgotha understand the human heart well. They know how to nurture hatred and foment fear and terror in the affairs of men and how easy men are corrupted by their innate evil natures. These Dark Masters have studied well how to corrupt and ensnare people into their web of Evil. They understand all too well the venality of the human condition and have developed subtle strategies to exploit it. Thus, one of these stratagems is the corruption of the Jewish race by perverting the concept of the “Chosen People,” which has repeatedly led them into great terrors. Thus, the unique role of the Jew in the historical process has been co-opted by these Dark Adepts, the Brotherhood of Darkness. These have used Black Magic throughout time and across continents to corrupt and ensnare not only the leaders of the Jews, but also leaders of other nations in their Evil web of intrigue. These Dark Adepts are disciples of Satan and Lucifer, the Dark Gods, who have ceaselessly acted to destroy the Christ Impulse since its inception.
They have moved against God and have used whatever and whoever to advance their Great Conspiracy. And they have therefore also used the uniqueness of Jewry to do this. For, they are the headmen of the Great Conspiracy and are the human agents of Ahriman and Lucifer, who are the Dark Gods and who are the true Overlords of Chaos.
Thus, although the vast majority of Khazars were not bloodline Jews and therefore not of Judah’s House, that they merely adopted Judaism and became “Jews” does not exclude them from being considered Jewish. For the especial status of Judahites mentioned repeatedly in the Old Testament regarding the purity of their blood has been relinquished because the specific eugenic task of safeguarding the “pure Jew” has been accomplished. The racial purity of Judah was paramount in antiquity to insulate the Jew from the Luciferian consciousness raging across the land concretised in the Gnostic mystery religions. The Divine Powers had decreed that the Seed of Abraham, but especially the tribe of Judah, would be the human vehicle for the delivery of the Christ Impulse into the physical realm. Thus an immaculate human soul and perfect human body was required to receive the Incarnation of Christ, the Sun God, into flesh and blood. A body and soul untainted with Luciferian Consciousness was required, and thus the generations leading up to the birth of this perfect human, the best of humanity, had perforce to be protected from the corrupting influences of Lucifer. This is the reason for the Old Testament prophets fulminating against their backsliding kinsmen and the real meaning behind the concept of “God’s Chosen People.” It is also the reason for the destruction of antediluvian races, in the “Flood,” that had become too corrupted by the Luciferian consciousness to be redeemed.
In his carefully researched book, Arthur Koestler provoked a storm because in it he refutes the idea of a Jewish race per se. Furthermore, he states that most Jews of the contemporary world cannot trace their ancestry to the patriarch Judah because they are not of Semitic origin and did not come from Judaea. Koestler concluded that the majority of Jews in the world were in reality bogus and had become Jews through conversion, on the orders of their king:
“The evidence presented in the previous chapters adds up to a strong case in favour of those modern historians – whether Austrian, Israeli or Polish – who, independently from each other, have argued that the bulk of modern Jewry is not of Palestinian, but of Caucasian origin. The mainstream of Jewish migrations did not flow from the Mediterranean across France and Germany to the east and then back again. The stream moved in a consistently westerly direction, from the Caucasus through the Ukraine into Poland and thence into Central Europe. When that unprecedented mass settlement in Poland came into being, there were simply not enough Jews around in the west to account for it, while in the east a whole nation was on the move to new frontiers”
While Jews of different origin also contributed to the existing Jewish world community, Koestler a Hungarian Jew asserts that:
” … the main bulk originated from the Khazar country [located] between two major world powers: the Eastern Roman Empire in Byzantium and the triumphant followers of Muhammad.”
Since the collapse of the Roman Empire, the Near East was polarised between these two great power representing Christianity and Islam, the Khazar Empire, represented a third independent force that:
“Could only maintain its independence by accepting neither Christianity nor Islam – for either choice would have automatically subordinated it to the authority of the Roman Emperor or the Caliph of Baghdad.”
Not wishing to be dominated by either of the two theocratic powers, the khagan “embraced the Jewish faith” in AD 740 and ordered his subjects to do the same. Judaism thus, asserts Koestler, became the state religion of the Khazars, not out of devotion or love, but purely political reasons.In the 16th century Jews, according to the Jewish Encyclopedia, in an article “Statistics,” Jews numbered about one million:
“This seems to indicate … that during the Middle Ages the majority of those who professed the Judaic faith [Pharisaism/Judaism/Talmudism]were[non-Semitic]Khazars.”
Koestler quotes scholars who documented that:
“The majority of those who professed the Judaic faith were Khazars …. genetically they [today’s Jews] are more closely related to the Hun, Uigur and Magyar tribes than to the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Should this turn out to be the case, then the term “anti-Semitism” would become void of meaning…. The Khazars and their King are all Jews [not genetically, but rather by conversion to Judaism]… Some are of the opinion that Gog and Magog are the Khazars [Ezek. 38:1-9] … Joseph [one of the Khagans]then proceeds to provide a genealogy of his people. Though a fierce Jewish nationalist, proud of wielding the “Sceptre of Judah,” he cannot, and does not, claim for them Semitic descent; he traces their ancestry not to Shem, but to Noah’s third son, Japheth; or more precisely to Japheth’s grandson, Togarma, the ancestor of all Turkish tribes
Koestler concludes his book with the damning conclusion that is at the heart of the debate:
“In this last chapter I have tried to show that the evidence from Anthropology concurs with history in refuting the popular belief in a Jewish race descended from a biblical tribe [the tribe of Judah] … the lingering influence of Judaism’s racial and historical message [that today’s Jews are descended from Israel], though based on illusion, acts as a powerful emotional break by appealing to tribal loyalty… Abraham Poliak, a professor of history at Tel Aviv University and no doubt an Israeli patriot, made a major contribution to our knowledge of Jewry’s [true non-Semitic]Khazar ancestry, undermining the legend of the Chosen Race.”
Koestler then makes a rather startling observation, that:
“The story of the Khazar Empire, as it slowly emerges from the past, begins to look like the most cruel hoax which history has ever perpetrated.”
Bernard Joseph Brown, another Jew, in his book From Pharaoh to Hitler, ‘What Is A Jew?” agreed with Koestler that since the Jews of today are not properHebrews, they have noclaim to Palestine:
“Being consciously Jewish is the lowest kind of chauvinism for it is the only chauvinism that is based on false premises.”
Koestler also points out that contemporary Jewry can be split into two main branches: Sephardim and Ashkenazim. The former branch of Jewry are the descendants of the Jews who had lived in Spain until their expulsion, along with the Muslims, at the end of the 15th century, and who later settled along the Mediterranean littoral, and who spoke a Spanish-Hebrew dialect, Ladino. In the 1960s, Koestler informs us, the Sephardim numbered about 500,000. The latter branch of Jewry is the Ashkenazim, who at the same period were about 11 million. Koestler quotes, A.N. Poliak, a Tel Aviv University professor of medieval Jewish history, as his source for this assumption that the descendants of Khazar Jews were:
“… those who stayed where they were [in Khazaria] those who emigrated to the United States and to other countries, and those who went to Israel, constitute now the large majority of world Jewry.”
Under the heading “Ashkenazi, Ashkenazim,” The New Standard Jewish Encyclopedia. provides population statistics for the Ashkenazim:
“[These] … constituted before 1933 some nine-tenths of the Jewish people (about 15,000,000 out of 16,500,000) [by 1968 it is believed by some Jewish authorities to be closer to 100%]”
Wilmot Robertson in his book The Dispossessed Majority confirms this statistic:
“The [non-Israelite]Jews in Slavic lands, the Ashkenazim, are to be distinguished from the Sephardim, the purer-blooded Mediterranean Jews … The Zionist pioneers of Palestine were mostly Ashkenazim … The “un-Jewish”[non-Israelite]temperament and character of these Zionists were accented by their “un-Jewish” [non-Israelite]appearance.”
Jack Bernstein, an Ashkenazi Jew, in his book The Life of an American Jew in Racist Marxist Israel has this to say on the matter:
“The powerful Zionist propaganda machine has led the American people to believe that a Jew is a Jew – one race of people and that they are “God’s Chosen People.” I will deal with the “God’s Chosen People” lie later. First, it is important for you to understand that Jews are NOT [author’s emphasis]one race of people… There are two distinct groups of Jews in the world and they come from two different areas of the world – the Sephardic Jews from the Middle East and North Africa and the Ashkenazi Jews come from Eastern Europe … The Sephardic is the oldest group and it is they, if any, who are the Jews described in the Bible because they lived in the area described in the Bible. They are blood relatives to the Arabs – the only difference between them is religion … The Ashkenazi Jews, who now comprise 90% of the Jews in the world, had a rather strange beginning. According to historians, many of them Jewish, the Ashkenazi Jews came into existence about 1200 years ago.”
The Jewish author, James Yaffe his book The American Jews, wrote of the Ashkenazim in America. Observe that Yaffe obviously considers the Sephardic Jew nearly extinct in North America:
It has been estimated that 95 percent of the Jews in America today are descended from these East European immigrants. What the American Jew is now, his style of living and thinking, comes to him from the shtetl[a small town or village formerly found in Eastern Europe], tempered in the furnace of the lower East Side[of New York City] … the early Sephardic settlers, for example, left practically no descendants who are still Jewish … They disappeared not because they intermarried but because they refused to intermarry … without sufficient choice among their own, they remained unmarried and died out…. choosing extinction rather than assimilation.”
Thus, the non-Sephardic majority of contemporary Jewry has arrogated not only numerical supremacy but also ideological and theocratic ascendancy to a degree that “in common parlance, Jew is practically synonymous with Ashkenazi Jew.” Yet, these are upstarts who according to Koestler are not real Jews at all. For, after the destruction of their empire in the 11th century, the Jewish Khazars migrated west into Eastern Europe, but mainly Russia and Poland, where the greatest concentrations of Eastern Jews, the Ashkenazim, were found by Hitler and his hoards.
Koestler’s main thesis, that the bulk of Eastern Jewry, and hence of world Jewry is of Khazar-Turkish, rather than Semitic, origin, has caused great excitement but for very different reasons. Even the English conspiracy theorist H. G. Wells (1866-1946) in his Outline of History, reached the same conclusion:
“… the Idumeans (Edomites) were … made Jews … and a Turkish people [Khazars]were mainly Jews in South Russia … The main part of Jewry never was in Judea and had never come out of Judea …. It is highly probable that the bulk of the Jew’s ancestors ‘never’ lived in Palestine ‘at all,’ which witnesses the power of historical assertion over fact.”
The Jewish Encyclopedia (1905) agrees with Wells:
“John Hyrcanus conquered the whole of Edom and undertook the forced conversion of its inhabitants to Judaism[Joseph. Ant. XIII, 9, 1]. Thenceforth the Edomites became a section of the Jewish people.”
The Encyclopedia Judaica (1971) concurs:
“Thus, at this juncture of time the Edomites ‘were incorporated with the Jewish nation, and their country was called by the Greeks and Romans ‘Idumea’.”
Under the heading, “Khazar,” The New Encyclopaedia Britannica corroborates the Khazar-Jew connection:
“Khazar, But the most striking characteristic of the Khazars was the apparent adoption of Judaism by the khagan and the greater part of the ruling class in about 740[A.D.].The circumstances of the conversion remain obscure, the depth of their adoption of Judaism difficult to assess; the fact itself, however, is undisputed and unparalleled in the history of central Eurasia. A few scholars have even asserted that the Judaized Khazars were the remote[genetic]ancestors of many of the Jews of eastern Europe and Russia.”
The New Westminster Dictionary of the Bible (ed. Henry S. Gehman, 1970) states that:
“… ibn Shaprut, who was foreign minister to Abd-al-Rahman, Sultan of Cordova, in his letter to King Joseph of the Chazars [about 960 A.D.] … speaks of the tradition according to which the Chazars once dwelt near the Seir Mountains. The Seir mountains were the home of the Edomites for nearly a millennium [The Edomites arrived in Edom or Seir at the end of the 14th and beginning of the 13th century B.C. Encyclopedia Judaica, Vol. 6, p. 372] Thus we have it from Jewish sources that the Khazars originally ‘dwell near the Seir Mountains’ so are racially of Edomite stock. But how and when did Edomites get to Khazaria? There is evidence that in the 6th century B.C., some of the Edomites fled their homeland of Seir and migrated north, ‘After the fall of Jerusalem, in 586 B.C., the Edomites began to press northward [Ezekiel 36:5].”
The story of the Khazars came to the attention of a Jewish diplomat and physician named Hasdai ibn Shaprut, foreign minister to Abd-al-Rahman, Sultan of Cordova, who learned from Byzantine messengers that Khazaria was ruled by a king named Yosef and that they are a powerful military and commercial centre. Shaprut was inspired to learn more about this Jewish kingdom, Khazaria, ruled by a king named Yosef and wrote a letter that still exists. A translation by Rabbi N. Daniel Korobkin is found in an edition of The Kuzari (1998), Shaprut wrote that he
“… was filled with power, my hands became strong, and my hope gained courage … We live in the Diaspora and there is no power in our hands. They say to us every day, ‘Every nation has a kingdom, but you have no memory of such in all the land.’ But when we heard about our master the King, the might of his monarchy, and his mighty army, we were amazed. We lifted our heads, our spirits returned, our hands were strengthened and my master’s kingdom was our response in defence. Were it that this news would gain added strength, for through it we will be elevated further.”
The consensus among academics and Zionists is that European Jewish ancestry originates substantially from ancient Judaea with a smattering of other bloodlines, but especially those of Khazars. Moreover, that the Khazars and the Jews mixed with each other but not on the scale suggested by some. This is, of course, a most sensitive point upon which to differ since it involves a God ordained “Chosen Land” and a “Chosen People.” The religious aspects notwithstanding, the rise of Zionism has meant that the question “who is a Jew?” takes on political connotations that involve very weighty considerations indeed. Zionism, although thoroughly atheistic in nature, arrogates the ancient dogma of a Chosen Land and a Chosen People and uses it together with the “Holocaust” and “anti-Semitic” shibboleths to condone its many outrages. Therefore, since 1948, the Zionists have succeeded in carving out a Jewish state from the land of the Palestinians, cleansing that land of its indigenous people using a breathtaking variety of tactics, including terrorism and mass murder, and still continue to press for a greater Zion while the world remains largely silent on the matter. Thus, the question of “who is a Jew” is of paramount importance.
