The Khazar Myth
Every now and then, the patriot activist stumbles across a very intelligent lie about Israel: the Khazar myth. According to this myth, Jews are mainly descendants of an Asian people, the Khazars, who converted to Judaism in the 8th century AD. The people that work with this lie, try to tell you that there is no bond between most of the Jewish people and their homeland Israel.
When you surf on the Internet across nationalist and patriotic sites, one encounters this myth quite regularly. It helps to influence the beginning activist to stop supporting Israel. This is quite harmful. If you want to read a good article about this issue: there is a short one by professor Steven Plaut to be found here: http://www.
The Khazar myth can be compared to stories about the attacks on 9/11 being instigated by the US Government. If you have ever debated someone who believes Bush is behind the attacks on the Twin Towers, you have some idea about how difficult it is to debate someone who believes in the Khazar myth. Every time you put forth a reasonable argument: such as that DNA test have proven that Ashkenazi Jews are closely related to Sefardic Jews, you are met with absurd counter arguments. Probably they tell you that the people that do the DNA tests are working for the Rothschilds.
The DNA evidence is of course the most important proof that Jews did not mix with the Khazars. According to historians, only about 100 people of the Khazar elite converted to Judaism and they were all killed later on. There are more facts that the enemies of Israel don’t like: for example, after about the expulsion of the Jews from their homeland in the first century AD, it was decided that there would be no more proselytizing. Other facts are that Jews from Europe do not have any Asian customs nor is their language Yiddish influenced by Turkish words. So how could they possibly be of that descent? Why would they have disguised themselves completely to hide that they are Khazars?
So please do not hesitate to say “rubbish” when someone tries to fool you..not even if this is Professor Sand of an Israeli University. Sand is a communist by the way.
