Arthur Koestler: The Thirteenth Tribe (1976)
Until the publication of Arthur Koestler’s bestseller titled ‘The Thirteenth Tribe’, Jews were commonly regarded as Semites. There was no questioning of the Zionist claim that modern Jews were the descendants of the Roman Days’ inhabitants of Judea and Samaria who got dispersed all over the world after a failed resurrection against the Romans in 70AD.
This misconception was reflected in the use of the term ‘anti-Semitism’, which implied that the recipient of the ill feelings it referred to were Semites by race.
Koestler provided proof that 90% of modern Jews, the Yiddish speaking Ashkenazi, have no Middle-Eastern roots whatsoever, but are in fact the descendants of Mongolian-Turk Khazars who entered Europe as part of Attila’s horde.
Koestler didn’t go into the juice details how those Turkish speaking Khazars ended up speaking Yiddish, a medieval Germanic dialect, interlaced with Turkish and Hebrew words. The explanation is simple. Attila’s troops couldn’t bring their women along for obvious reasons and ‘sourced’ them locally when settling down.
The unfortunate fruits of those rape-marriages learned their languages predominantly from their Germanic mothers, but picked up some Turkish words from their Khazar fathers too. The Hebrew words and alphabet came in later, when the Khazars converted to Judaism.
When Koestler, the author of dozens of books, wrote ‘The Thirteenth Tribe’, he didn’t anticipate the strong hostile response of his fellow Jews. He had not considered the implications for the Zionist claims on Palestinian land. If there is no genetic link between the Middle East and the great majority of modern Jews, why would the Palestinians should have to roll over for them?!
