The Jews are Not a Race!

By Dr. Alfred Lilienthal

Today, to trace anyone's descent to ancient Palestine would be a genealogical impossibility
The Jewish racial myth flows from the fact that the words Hebrew, Israelite, Jew, Judaism, and the Jewish people have been used synonymously to suggest a historic continuity. But this is a misuse
The descriptive name Judaism was never heard by the Hebrews or Israelites; it appears only with Christianity
Perhaps the most significant mass conversion to the Judaic faith occurred in Europe, in the 8th century A.D., and that story of the Khazars (Turko-Finnish people) is quite pertinent to the establishment of the modern State of Israel
The influence of the Khazars extended into what is now Hungary and Roumania
Jews who had been banished from Constantinople by the Byzantine ruler, Leo III, found a home amongst these heretofore pagan Khazars and, in competition with Mohammedan and Christian missionaries, won them over to the Judaic faith
Hasdai-Joseph letters
Under the rule of Obadiah, Judaism gained further strength in Khazaria
Khazar traders brought not only silks and carpets of Persia and the Near East but also their Judaic faith to the banks of the Vistula and the Volga
Many Khazars remarried in the Crimea and in Hungary
That the Khazars are the lineal ancestors of Eastern European Jewry is a historical fact
For all that anthropologists know, Hitler's ancestry might go back to one of the ten Lost Tribes of Israel; while Weizmann may be a descendant of the Khazars
