HISTORY OF THE KHAZAR PEOPLES OF EURASIA = NOW CALL THEMSELVES ZIONISTS
DR. PRESTON JAMES EXPLAINS WHY ZIONIST HAVE NO RIGHT TO PALESTINE BUT THE PALESTINIANS DO.
The Editors of Encyclopædia Britannica begins, “Khazar, member of a confederation of Turkic-speaking tribes that in the late 6th century CE established a major commercial empire covering the southeastern section of modern European Russia. Although the origin of the term Khazar and the early history of the Khazar people are obscure, it is fairly certain that the Khazars were originally located in the northern Caucasus region and were part of the western Turkic empire (in Turkistan). The Khazars were in contact with the Persians in the mid-6th century CE, and they aided the Byzantine emperor Heraclius (reigned 610–641) in his campaign against the Persians.”
The Khazars = Crimean Tatars = Of Turk origins who migrated out of Asia & East including The Huns and The Mongolians with NO LINKS to Semites surrounding the wide area around and including Palestine = A semi- nomadic Turkic people from Central Asia = Name ‘Khazar’ tied to a Turkic verb meaning “wandering” = In 7th century founded an independent Khaganate (a political entity ruled by a Khan or Khaganin) in the Northern Caucasus along the Caspian Sea = At their height of power, they controlled much of what is today southern Russia, western Kazakhstan, eastern Ukraine, large portions of the Caucasus (including Dagestan, Azerbaijan, and Georgia), and the Crimea. = The Khazars never inhabited the land surrounding and including where Palestine is today.
The Khazars = Important allies of the Byzantine Empire against the Sassanid empire, and were a major regional power at their height. They fought a series of successful wars against the Arab Caliphates, probably preventing an Arab invasion of Eastern Europe. By the end of the tenth century, their power was broken by the Kievan Rus (a loose federation of East Slavic tribes in Europe), and the Khazars largely disappeared from history via migration and integration.
THE KHAZARS = Over time Judaism became the state religion and many converted to Judaism from paganism with many gods focused on penal worship.
THE KHAZARS = Scholars in the former Jewish run USSR considered the Khazars to be an indigenous people of the North Caucasus and connected with an Uyghur (Turkic ethnic group living in Eastern and Central Asia) or Tiele confederation (a confederation of nine Turkic peoples living to the north of China and in Central Asia) called He’san in Chinese sources from the 7th-century.
THE KHAZARS = Language of Hunnish & Turkish origin (Oghur or Oğuric) similar to that spoken by the early Bulgars. It is likely that the Khazar nation was made up of tribes from various ethnic backgrounds, as steppe nations traditionally absorbed those they conquered. Priscus relates that one of the nations in the Hunnish confederacy was called Akatziroi (note a similarity between Akatziroi and “Ak-Khazar” and were early proto-Khazars) and their king was named Karadach or Karidachus. The Akatziri or Akatzirs was a tribe that lived north of the Black Sea, west of Crimea. May have also been related to those in year 500 who came from Transoxiana, a portion of Central Asia corresponding approximately with modern-day Uzbekistan.
THE KHAZARS = Tribal structure was possibly divided between Ak-Khazars (“White Khazars” with relish hair) and Kara-Khazars (“Black Khazars” were almost deep dark like they came from India) and a conglomerate of Asian and common Turkic peoples including the Huns. Many Turkic nations had a similar division between a “white” ruling warrior caste and other classes. Their trade & influence may have extended to the Pacific Ocean on the East and Eastern Europe on the West, as some tribes like Huns and Mongolians were strongly nomadic.
THE KHAZARS = Likely originated from the gigantic Gokturk empire western half overthrown in 552 CE = Split into a number of tribal confederations, among whom were the Bulgars. By 670, the Khazars had broken from the Bulgar confederation, causing various tribal groups to migrate and form Volga Bulgaria, and the Bulgarian khanate on the Danube River. Khazars first significant appearance in history is their aid to the campaign of the Byzantine emperor Heraclius against the Sassanid Persians. The Khazar ruler Ziebel (Khagan of the West Turks) aided the Byzantines in overrunning Georgia. In 7th and 8th centuries the Khazar fought a series of wars against the second of the four major Arab caliphates established after the death of Muhammad — First war was 650 and defeated an Arab force in a Khazarian territory. Further conflicts erupted in the decades that followed, with Arab attacks and Khazar raids into Kurdistan and Iran.
THE KHAZARS = Some think they ruled over Crimea in late 600s and put down a mid 700s rebellion by Crimean Goths but the Crimea was part of the Byzantine Empire. The Khazars were allied with the Byzantine Empire during at least part of the 700s. The Byzantine emperor Leo III married his son Constantine to the Khazar princess Tzitzak (daughter of the Khagan Bihar) as part of the alliance between the two empires.
THE KHAZARS = Second Khazar-Arab war broke out again with the Caliphate in the 710s, with raids back and forth across the Caucasus but few decisive battles covering Iran and Mosul and included Khazar beheading of enemies. Arab armies poured across the Caucasus and eventually (in 737) defeated a Khazar army and possibly forcing the Khagan to convert to Islam. The Arab armies eventually withdrew and Khazar independence was re-asserted and it is then possible the Khazar rulers adopted Judaism around 740 to re-assert independence. Arabs reported in 739 that the ruler of the Khazars was a woman who appears to have directed military operations against them. For some time after these wars, the Khazars were forced to withdraw behind the Caucasus and instead extended their territories from the Caspian Sea or “Khazar Sea” to the steppe region north of Black Sea in the west to Dnieper River (of Ukraine). In 758, the military governor of Armenia took a royal Khazar bride to make peace but the girl died inexplicably, possibly in childbirth but her attendants who returned home were convinced that some Arab faction had poisoned her. Her father was enraged and ordered a Khazar general to invade northwestern Iran and plunder it for months. Thereafter relations between the Khazars and Arabs became increasingly cordial.
THE KHAZARS Religion = Originally was Turkic shamanism (belief in an unseen world of gods) = Focused on the sky god Tengri, but were heavily influenced by Confucian ideas (transcendent ideals of traditional Chinese society) and the Mandate of Heaven and the Japanese CONCEPT OF A CHOSEN PEOPLE! So the Khazarian Kaghan (KING) chose to be the sky-god. Any kaghan who failed had clearly lost the god’s favor and was typically ritually executed. Perhaps this caused the Kaghan to choose Judaism over far too frequent execution. The primitive Khazar also worshipped a number of other deities including the fertility goddess Umay, Kuara, a thunder-god, Erlik, the god of death, and a phallic god much like the worship of Satan.
THE KHAZARS Conversion to Judaism = Likely to save the King’s life they chose conversion and since Jewish communities had settled around the Greek cities of the Black Sea coast including Crimean cities with some said to have had a Jewish majority as early as the 670s — They chose what was known and handy, Judaism. Jews had been driven out of the Byzantine Empire and since they were traveling merchants they regularly had traded in Khazar territory and developed significant economic and political influence. So the Kaghan choice was relatively easy and saved his life from beheading. The formal conversion of larger groups to Judaism took place in last decades of the 8th century or the early 9th century. Most scholars believe that only the upper classes converted to Judaism but burial practices seemed to have changed in mid 800s to follow Judaism rules and grave goods disappeared. Perhaps by 950 Judaism became more widespread. The Khazar empire was among growing populations of Muslims to the east and Christians to the west and both recognized Judaism with some respect. Khazars were called “bastards” by Karaite Jews in writings so the Khazars avoided adopting Karaite Jewish beliefs.
NOTE: Karaite Judaism or Karaism is a Jewish religious movement characterized by the recognition of the Tanakh alone as its supreme authority in Halakha. Karaites maintain that all of the divine commandments handed down to Moses by God were recorded in the written Torah without additional Oral Law or explanation as those written by Rabbis in the Talmud (completely invalid to these Jews).
NOTE: Mainstream Rabbinic Judaism = Considers the Oral Torah of the Talmud and many add-ons by rabbis to be authoritative laws of jews. Contains suggestions of incest and advocated the murder of non-jews especially Christians.
THE KHAZARS CONVERTS = Held in high regard among the Jews of the Orient + The Khazars are claimed to be “The LORD’s chosen ally will carry out his purpose against Babylon; his arm will be against the Babylonians.” Isaiah 48:14 in the Destruction of the Arabs in Babylon. Some say the Khazar rulers viewed themselves as the protectors of international Jewry who retaliate against Muslim or Christian interests in Khazaria. Around 920 the Khazar ruler received information that Muslims had destroyed a synagogue in the land of Babung, in Iran; he gave orders that the minaret of the mosque in his capital should be broken off, and the muezzin executed. He further declared that he would have destroyed all the mosques in the country had he not been afraid that the Muslims would, in turn, destroy all the synagogues in their lands. = Shows extreme vindictiveness against other religions! But then some researchers claim the Khazar rulers showed religious toleration over the nations short 300-year existence?
THE KHAZARS Government of Kingship = Divided between the khagan (King has many wives and was a figurehead like Queen Elizabeth) and the Bek or Khagan Bek who was responsible for administration and military affairs. The Khagan’s palace was on an island in the Volga River and he had 25 wives, each the daughter of a client ruler. Perhaps by 950-960, the Khazars had merged the two positions into a single ruler. Settlements were governed by administrative officials appointed by the Bek for a town.
THE KHAZARS Army = Led by the Khagan Bek and commanded by subordinate officers known as tarkhans. A famous tarkhan led an invasion of Armenia in 758 and included regiments of Muslim auxiliaries who were quite influential and were exempt from campaigning against their fellow Muslims. + The Bek could call upon tribal levies in times of danger and be often joined by auxiliaries from subject nations.
THE KHAZARS Judiciary = Court consisted of two Jews, two Christians, two Muslims, and a “heathen” (Turkic shaman or a pagan priest) = Jewish researchers claim they had three Jewish judges and the others had one at most if any.
THE KHAZARS Economy & Trade = Occupied a prime trade nexus between Europe & Central Asia to China. The route of Jewish Radhanites medieval traders ran through Khazaria and may have been instrumental in the Khazars’ conversion to Judaism. No Khazar paid taxes to the central government and all Revenue came from a 10% levy on goods transiting through the region. The Khazars may have exported honey, furs, wool, millet and other cereals, fish, and slaves, but some assert that the Khazars produced almost no material goods themselves, living solely off of trade, but may have produced some pottery and glass.
THE KHAZARS Coinage = Minted silver coins, perhaps copies of Arab Caliphate dirhems Coins that were in widespread use due to their reliable silver content. Merchants from China and Scandinavia accepted them regardless of their inability to read the Arab writing, so issuing imitation dirhems ensured acceptance of Khazar coinage in foreign lands. A Viking treasure found in 1999 had many silver coins and a few dated 837/8 had Arabic script saying, “Moses is the Prophet of God” (instead of “Muhammad is the Prophet of God”) — likely forged since they did not convert to Judaism until 50 years later, but perhaps King Bulan made a special commemorative coin celebrating his conversion to Judaism. All such scenarios seem a big stretch.
THE KHAZARS Influence = Heartland was on the lower Volga and the Caspian coast and from 600 supposedly controlled most of the Crimea. By 800 Khazar holdings included most of the Pontic steppe as far west as the Dneiper and as far east as the Aral Sea (some Turkic history atlases show the Khazar sphere of influence extending well east of the Aral). Towns of the Khazars were along the Caspian coast and Volga delta and Khazar settlements existed on the Dnieper River including what may now be the city of Kiev. (SOROS & ROTHSCHILDS wanted UKRAINE FOR SOME REASON) and with Jewish Traders traveling to China they had influence with the drug and silk trade.
THE KHAZARS Decline and Fall = 10th century the empire began to decline due to the attacks of both Vikings from Kievan Rus and various Turkic tribes and from internal rebellions by any tribes. The rebel tribes may have joined with the Magyars (“Hungarian”) possibly against the imposition of Judaism. And after some years of constant battles, the Khazars lost control over the steppes north of the Black Sea. They were soon diplomatically isolation and under constant military threats from Svyatoslav (called destroyer of the Khazar Khaganate) and those he led inhabiting present-day Ukraine around 950. Also, the alliance with the Byzantines began to collapse in the early 900s, with conversion to Judaism and Byzantine and Khazar forces may have clashed in the Crimea around 940s. The Byzantines during that time-shifted their alliances to the with the Persians and Russians of more recent times. The Khazars found themselves fighting on multiple fronts as nomadic incursions were exacerbated by uprisings by former clients and invasions from former allies who became strong enemies. The Khazars actions against the Norse and Rus factions blocking trade routes along the Volga and that sparked a war. Supposedly in the early 960s, Khazar ruler Joseph supposedly wrote about the deterioration in relations with the Rus: “I have to wage war with them, for if I would give them any chance at all they would lay waste the whole land of the Muslims as far as Baghdad.” The Rus warlords Oleg of Novgorod and Sviatoslav I of Kiev launched several wars against the Khazar khaganate, often with Byzantine help. Sviatoslav succeeded in destroying Khazar imperial power in the 960s and the Khazar fortresses of Sarkel and Tamatarkha fell to the Rus in 965 as did the capital city of Atil in 967 or 969. A visitor to Atil wrote soon after the sacking of the city: “The Rus attacked, and no grape or raisin remained, not a leaf on a branch.” THE KHAZAR EMPIRE WAS GONE AND REMAINING KHAZARS FLED WEST into Europe.
THE KHAZARS = Khazar Mercenaries had spread into (its homelands) around modern Turkey doing deeds for the Caliphate and other Islamic states and the Khazar community mingled with the Jews of the suburb of modern-day Beyoğlu, Turkey. A map of the flow of Khazars shows most flowed into Western Europe as far as Spain. Khazar rabbinical students descended from the Khazars, were found in 12th century Spain and Khazar converts were found in France, Germany, England and Eastern Europe.
THE KHAZARS = Ashkenazim is built on Khazars and DNA proves it. DNA now proves modern Ashkenazi Converts are of Khazarian ancestry rather than Jewish Semites. DNA studies demonstrate that Ashkenazi say 90% to 97% are of NON-SEMITE origins and have strong links to a mix of Asians including Huns and Mongolians and Slavs. Koestler who first noted the “Khazars are the Ashkenazis” was himself emphatically pro-Zionist. Zionists should switch to Anti-Khazar instead of Anti-Semite to be more accurate in their oppression and suppression of FREE SPEECH!
