The Myth of Khazarian Jews?

This Blog Post is based on a summary of several articles and videos that show research showing the Kazarian Jew Theory is not true and was based on some fraudulent or biased and conflicting source documents.  Also, links to what some Modern Day Prophets are saying about Israel and Netanyahu.


I. Are Ashkenazi Jews Descended from Khazars?

https://jewishstudies.washington.edu/video/are-jews-descended-from-khazars/

Shaul Stampfer, a historian at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, recently published his research about the Khazar conversion in the journal Jewish Social Studies. In a new article at Haaretz, you can read why Stampfer claims that Ashkenazi Jews did not descend from the Khazars.

Or, watch the video from Stampfer’s October 2012 lecture at the University of Washington’s Stroum Center for Jewish Studies:

 

  • Introduction and Background of the Topic
    • Speaker's background: A graduate student with expertise in topics like education, family structure, and demography in Eastern Europe.
    • Invitation to a conference: Prompted to explore the background of Eastern European Jews, focusing on the theory that they descended from the Khazars who converted to Judaism in the Middle Ages.
  • Overview of the Khazar Tribe and Conversion Theory
    • Brief history of the Khazars: A powerful tribe in Southern Ukraine and Dagistan during the 8th and 9th centuries.
    • Role in history: Stopping the spread of Islam towards the west and north, influencing the conversion of early Slavs to Christianity.
  • Implications of the Khazar Conversion Theory
    • Connection to contemporary debates: The theory suggests that East European Jews, particularly Ashkenazi Jews, are descendants of Khazars, challenging the idea of a historical connection to Palestine.
    • Influential books on the topic: Mention of works by authors like Arthur Koestler and Shlomo Sand, who explored the Khazar conversion theory.
  • Genetic and Linguistic Evidence Against Khazar Ancestry
    • Genetic studies of Ashkenazi Jews: Examination of Ashkenazi genetic markers reveals no connection to Turkish populations or Central Asian genes.
    • Analysis of Yiddish language: Lack of Turkic or Khazar-related elements in the Yiddish language, pointing towards a different linguistic origin.
    • DNA evidence refuting Khazar ancestry: Recent genetic research disproving the Khazar hypothesis through the analysis of mitochondrial and Y-chromosomal DNA in Ashkenazi Jewish populations.  One example includes: https://www.oneforisrael.org/bibl
  • Refuting the Khazar Conversion Theory
    • Critique of the theory: Asserting that the claim of East European Jews descending from Khazars is baseless and a result of political agendas.
    • Lack of evidence in Yiddish language and culture: Absence of Khazar influences in Yiddish vocabulary or cultural elements challenges the theory's validity.
  • Exploration of Historical Evidence and Academic Response
    • Scholarly response to the theory: Mention of Moshe Gil's article disputing the Khazar conversion narrative and the lack of academic engagement.
    • Personal decision to delve into the topic: Motivated by the need to scrutinize and verify historical claims surrounding the Khazar conversion.
  • Critical Analysis and Conclusion
    • Examination of primary sources: Interpreting letters and narratives about the Khazar conversion, questioning their authenticity and historical accuracy.
    • Argument from silences: Highlighting the absence of references in Jewish, Byzantine, Christian missionary, Georgian, Armenian, and Persian sources as a counterpoint to the Khazar conversion theory.

Conclusion: Asserting that the Khazar conversion theory lacks substantial evidence and suggesting that it is likely a myth rather than a historical reality.

 

II Jews Are Not Descended From Khazars, Hebrew University Historian Says


https://www.haaretz.com/jewish/2014-06-26/ty-article/khazar-myth-busted/0000017f-db86-df62-a9ff-dfd788d80000?lts=1707343722850

The claim that today’s Ashkenazi Jews are descended from Khazars who converted in the Middle Ages is a myth, according to new research by a Hebrew University historian.

  1. The article debunks the "Khazar myth," which suggests that Ashkenazi Jews are descendants of the Khazar people, rather than from ancient Israel.

    • It provides historical evidence to counter the theory that the Khazars converted to Judaism and formed the basis of the Ashkenazi Jewish population.
  2. The author highlights recent genetic studies that support the theory of Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry from the Middle East.

    • These studies analyze DNA samples from Jewish populations and show genetic similarities to other Jewish groups and Middle Eastern populations.
  3. The article discusses how the Khazar theory gained popularity in the 20th century, fueled by anti-Semitic sentiments and the desire to undermine Jewish claims to the land of Israel.

    • It emphasizes the importance of critically examining historical narratives and avoiding the perpetuation of unfounded theories.
  4. The article concludes by emphasizing the need for accurate historical understanding and respectful dialogue when discussing Jewish ancestry and identity.

    • It encourages readers to approach this topic with an open mind and to rely on reputable sources for information.

III. Links to Modern-Day Prophets about Israel and Netanyahu

Kim Clement, Amanda Grace, Julie Green and Mark Taylor's written prophecies before 2019 all paint modern Israel as precious to God and he will protect it and Netanyahu as his chosen instrument (similar to Trump):

Conclusion

Clearly, based on logic and evidence from analysis of DNA, linguistics, history, and archeology show that the Kazarian jew theory is a myth. 

The bottom line is the theory was based on a first-hand source that was highly likely fraudulently written in perfect Hebrew in Europe and not by a King or scribes in Kazarian territories.  The other two second and third-hand sources are conflicting and have anachronisms that don't hold up to basic logic or history and archeology.  Linguistics also shows it to be a false theory not to mention massive negative evidence as outlined by the video by professor and historian, Shaul Stampfer.

The theory was motivated by politics and a lack of investigation to the sourcing. 

What puts the real nail in the coffin for most Christians, is that numerous modern-day prophets all speak of modern Israel as Biblical Israel and God will protect it.  The prophetic words also speak of Netanyahu as God's chosen instrument to fight God's enemies, similar to how God talks about Trump through the prophets.

This is not to say that those reporting on this theory did not have plenty of sources.  The real issue is that the original sources are extremely flawed and absolutley inaccurate.
