for the obvious sake of accuracy reasonably comprehensive documentation is necessary. In this it will be shown that the cry of anti Semitism hurled against those who do. oppose the international actions of ones calling themselves Jews would be much like an. immigrated Scotsman to America deciding to live on an Apache Indian reservation coming. to dominate its politics and economics and then claiming that anyone disagreeing with his. political and social agenda is racist and anti Apache in their beliefs. What under different circumstances could prove to be a dry treatise on Eastern. European Jewish history is if closely examined actually a narrative of events that have laid. a sequential pathway to and beyond the destruction of the New York World Trade Center. on September 11 2001 This historical time line has been fixed in its present course which. by all appearances and in a most unexpected manner is culminating in the fulfillment of. the Biblical prophecies of Armageddon But then it has always been so with prophecy The. most consistent aspect in the nature of prophetic fulfillment is that it is consistently. surprising God has invariably worked to complete His desires prophetically in ways that. have not been understood until revealed in retrospect in the light of their actual. An Historical Perspective, Shortly after the death of Mohammed in AD 632 according to Columbia University. Professor D M Dunlop Arab armies began a campaign northward sweeping through the. wreckage of two empires and carrying all before them till they reached the great mountain. barrier of the Caucasus This barrier once passed Dunlop observes the road lay open to. the lands of eastern Europe 2 Had the Caliphate the armies of the Muslim Caliph. surmounted that immense geological deterrent unchallenged the history of Europe and. indeed the rest of the Judeo Christian world would have been vastly different than it now. It was at the Caucasus however that the Arabs encountered the Khazars initiating a. war that lasted over a century and effectively prevented Europe from becoming Islamic So. powerful socially and militarily were the Khazars that as Kevin Alan Brook relates in his. work The Jews of Khazaria a 10th century emperor of the Byzantines Roman Empire. Constantine Porphyrogenitus sent correspondence to the Khazars marked with a gold seal. worth 3 solidi more than the 2 solidi that always accompanied letters to the Pope of Rome. the Prince of the Rus and the Prince of the Hungarians 3. Rutgers University Professor Peter Golden referred to by Brook as one of the principal. authorities on the Khazars wrote Every schoolchild in the West has been told that if not. for Charles Martel and the battle of Poitiers there might be a mosque where Notre Dame. now stands What few schoolchildren are aware of Golden emphasizes is that if not for. the Khazars Eastern Europe might well have become a province of Islam 4. The Khazarian mounted forces with a soldiery of mainly Turkic and pagan origin could. at times and when accounted for show a disastrous fierceness and cruelty to the enemies. of Khazaria They were also probably the most disciplined as well as tactically and. strategically the most potent martial power at that time and in that region Evidence that. they were supremely calculating in their approach to international matters lay in the fact. that in contrast to their brutality Khazar officials were often consulted as diplomatic. emissaries and mediators by all the political powers surrounding Khazaria The Khazars. and their empire were at that time both highly respected and greatly feared with good. At the peak of their empire it is believed that the Khazars had a permanent standing. army that could have numbered as many as one hundred thousand and controlled or. exacted tribute astonishingly from thirty different nations and tribes inhabiting the vast. territories between the Caucasus the Aral Sea the Ural Mountains and the Ukrainian. steppes 6 7 During their zenith Khazaria completely girded the lands of what are. currently Astrakhan Kalmykia Daghestan Volgograd Rostov Ingushetia Kabardino. Balkarsk North Ossetia and Chechnya At its maximum extent in the ninth century. says Brook Khazaria not only encompassed the northern Caucasus and the Volga delta. but also extended as far west as Kiev Russia 8, Soviet archaeologist M I Artamonov states that for a century and a half the Khazars. were the supreme masters of the southern half of Eastern Europe and presented a virtually. impenetrable bulwark blocking the Ural Caspian gateway from Asia into Europe During. that entire period they held back the onslaught of the nomadic tribes from the East 9. Until recently a great part of the problem with the historical obscurity of ancient Khazaria. lay with the fact that the geographical area of the country was part of the Soviet Union. which insisted on interpreting archaeological data within the framework of Marxist historical. materialism 10 This Iron Curtain version of historical revisionism caused the Soviets to. interpret that data in such a way as to present as fact that which was well fabricated but. This peculiar and obscure race inhabiting that land were described as blue eyed and of. very fair complexion Commonly they had long reddish hair and were reported as very large. of stature and fierce of countenance 11 Other sources have added observations that there. were Black Khazars and White Khazars noting that the latter were light skinned and. handsome while the former were dark skinned This has however been rather. conclusively refuted by scholars who have established that the distinction was not racial but. social The Black or Kara Khazars constituted the lower strata or caste while the White. or Ak Khazars were of the noble or royal classes This type of class distinction was fairly. common in Eastern Europe as evidenced by the more commonly known terms Black. Russian and White Russian denoting not skin color but class 12. In his book An Introduction to the History of the Turkic Peoples Peter Golden claims that. the Chinese T and shu chronicle describes the Khazars generally as tall with red hair. ruddy faced and blue eyed Black hair is considered a bad omen 13. THE KHAZARS OF CONQUEST AND WAR, Of the ferocity and warlike tendencies of the Khazars there is little doubt and much. historical evidence all of it pointing to a race of people so violent in their dealings with their. fellow men that they were feared and abhorred above all peoples in that region of the. The Arab chronicler Ibn Said al Maghribi writes they are to the north of the inhabited. earth towards the 7th clime having over their heads the constellation of the Plough Their. land is cold and wet Accordingly their complexions are white their eyes blue their hair. flowing and predominantly reddish their bodies large and their natures cold Their general. aspect is wild 14, The ninth century monk Druthmar of Aquitaine in his commentary on Matthew 24 14 in. Expositio in Matthaeum Evangelistam stated that the Gazari or Khazars dwelt in the. lands of Gog and Magog 15, Legends and stories abound some of which are true according to the above quoted.
Aquitaine monk that center around Alexander the Great and his attempt to enclose the. Khazars and quarantine them due to their violent and barbaric nature from the rest of the. civilized world This endeavor apparently failed Druthmar claimed and they escaped. Some legends even claim they were cannibals 16, After the kingdom s conversion to Judaism the term Red Jews came into usage out of. the superstition of medieval Germans who equated their red hair and beards and their. violent nature with deceit and dishonesty It is also well documented that they heavily taxed. those passing through their lands for none dared refuse them 17. According to Benjamin H Freedman himself a Jew and an apparent long time associate. and confidant of presidents and statesmen in an address presented in 1961 at the Willard. Hotel in Washington D C the Khazars were so belligerent and hostile that they were. eventually run out of Asia and scattered amongst the nations of Eastern Europe Heinrich. von Neustadt around 1300 wrote of them as the terrifying people of Gog and Magog 18. The territory of the Bulgars themselves legendary for their fierceness in battle was. conquered by the Khazars in AD 642 A portion of them fled westward to the region of the. Danube in the Balkans and formed what is now modern day Bulgaria 19 Even in modern. times Muslim history recalls the Khazar raids and the terror of those inhabiting that land. To this day they call the Caspian Bahr ul Khazar the Khazar Sea 20. It is not difficult to determine some of the motivating factors behind the legendary Khazar. ferocity in war When the bek the Khazar head of the military and second in command. only to the Kagan himself sends out a body of troops they do not in any circumstances. retreat If they are defeated every one who returns to him is killed Sometimes he cuts. every one of them in two and crucifies them and sometimes he hangs them by the neck. from trees 21, Logically it seems that this would not likely happen more than once since reason would. reveal to even the dullest soldier that defeat was not an option Such a practice would also. have provided a strong impetus to the legend of Khazar fierceness since when faced with. the choice of winning in battle or facing a worse death at home the options and the. rational responses to them become painfully distinct. All of these facts mingled with the semi factual legends of Alexander the Great and his. attempts to wall up the Red Jews and isolate them has led to the numerous mythologies of. the coming escape at the end of time of Gog and Magog from the area enclosed by the. Caucasus Mountains This as the legends say in order to fulfill Bible prophecy in the final. destruction of the world Indeed even Islam has such legends in its mythology. In a writing by the Imam Ibn Kathir he asserts that the prophet Mohammed has claimed. Every day Gog and Magog are trying to dig a way out through the barrier the Caucasus. mountains When they begin to see sunlight through it the one who is in charge of them. says Go back you can carry on digging tomorrow and when they come back the barrier. is stronger than it was before This will continue until their time comes and Allah wishes to. send them forth 22, As shall be shown the Muslims to the south of the Khazarian kingdom had good reason. to attach such legends to their ferocious northern neighbors. However no nation can long survive no matter how strong by being exclusively. belligerent and the Khazars were not an exception to this As a vital addition to their. brutality they were possessed of a native calculating wisdom in knowing as the gambler s. creed says when to hold em and when to fold em This prescient political sense became. evident in their diplomatic encounters with the Romans The Roman Emperor Heraclius in. 627 formed a military alliance with the Khazars for the purpose of a final defeat of the. Persians Upon the first meeting of the Khazar king Ziebel with the Roman Emperor the. Khazars displayed in full array their skills at diplomatic flattery skills that would serve. them well and would not disappear with their kingdom He with his nobles dismounted. from their horses says Gibbon and fell prostrate on the ground to adore the purple of. the Caesar So enamored was the Byzantine Emperor with this display of obeisance that it. eventually led to the offer along with many riches of the Caesar s daughter Eudocia in. marriage 23 That union never took place due to the death of Ziebel while Eudocia was. enroute to Khazaria However after the final defeat of Islam s designs on the Northern. Kingdom in AD 730 a marriage between a Khazar princess and the heir to the Byzantine. Roman Empire resulted in an offspring who was to rule Byzantium as Leo the Khazar Thus. the King of the North had skilfully managed to place himself on the throne of the Roman. After the defeat of the Persians a new triangle of power emerged consisting of the. Islamic Caliphate Christian Byzantium and the newly emerged Khazar Kingdom of the. North It fell to the latter to bear the brunt of the Arab attack in its initial stages and to. protect the plains of Eastern Europe from the invaders 25 Because of their unique. geographical location within the cusp created by the Caspian and Black Seas on either. side and the frightful stone barrier of the Caucasus Mountains along their southern border. defending their land was made considerably easier This situation of geography was. according to historians one of the major factors in shaping the history of Eastern Europe. the European continent and ultimately the world, The Khazars had for years been venturing forth southward in their marauding raids on. the Muslim countries south of the Caucasus Now in the early part of the seventh century. Islam came northward through the same Kasbek Pass the Khazars had used and began a. long war with the Northern Kingdom The major attempt of the Muslim armies to take. control of the Transcaucasus came in 622 while Mohammed was still leading Islam They. conquered Persia Syria Mesopotamia Egypt and surrounded the Byzantine heartland. present day Turkey in a deadly semi circle which extended from the Mediterranean to the. Caucasus and the southern shores of the Caspian This began a long series of incursions.
