First sorry to the thread author but this need's answering, You have heard about the russian step jewish origin theory, Well it does have merit and
if you read the history of that particular empire you will find that though it was later expunged from history it was in it's short time a glorious
one and only ended when it's erstwhile allies betrayed it but then anti semitism can also be referenced as anti jewish religion.
Have you ever heard of the beni cohen gene or the lemba people of south and west africa, Turn's out this ancient jewish gene from the priest cast of
the israelite tribes is quite common among the men of the lemba whom alway's claimed to be jewish by ancestry, the same for the black etheopian jew's
and of course it is found quite prevalent though of course not 100 percent in the western jew's and in many of the Muslims of arabie whose ancestor's
were jewish as well.
Did not god say "I shall scatter your seed into every nation and bless every family of man until all the world are your descendant's", so is that
anti semitism or anti God, ask yourself.
The Etheopian orthodox christian's were jewish once by faith and indeed on lake Tana there are ancient jewish ritual idol's in the grounds of the
Etheopian orthodox monastery, the ethiopean Jew's whom were essentially the same people though stuck to there original hebrew faith, for hundred's of
years until quite recently the Lemba whom are now predominantly christian also did so, Many jew's were scattered around the world and for hundred's of
years though there culture was seperate you would find them travelling often along with the gypsy caravans and gene's also passed between these
Now Khazaria the Jewish empire you allude to in your own blinkered way was not only home to convert's but also jew's persecuted elsewhere would have
flocked to this comparitively safe haven and grown in numbers, indeed this is probably the origin of the very tall hacidic jew's whom are most likely
or mixed jewish and Step tribesman ancestry, though the russians traditionally hate them they are essentially different tribes of the same people with
the cossack tribes being there cousins, www.historytoday.com...
, it is also of note that the
rabbi's whom converted them were mainly from persia and so not only from the west but also from the east you can imagine that for the jewish community
this would have been a shining light of hope and somewhere for a displaced people to call home until it was conquered and eradicated from history in a
forgotten holocaust that was the grand forerunner of all pogroms, en.wikipedia.org...
People are people at the end of the day and someone will have to answer for all the spilt blood.
In Isreal there is persecution of there own minority's such as the christian's and others as well as the palestinian's, almost as though they were
persecuted so long they turned into the very thing they hated which is sad.
