    Very interesting read and relevant to many of the Antisemetic slurs thrown at me over the years as the son of an Ashkenazi Jew from the Ukraine .

      I hope it has given you a good retort to those antisemites. Thanks for letting me know my article has personal value for you.

    What exactly have you proven? All the criticism that comes from the so called anti-semites is about you. However, in order for them to actually be anti-semites, you would have to be able to prove that you are a semite. You would have to be able to trace your lineage back to Shem. Can you do that? That is what I would like to see. Otherwise, you’re article is just as biased as any other critic. Sorry, I was hoping to find something, but found nothing here, just name calling, without facts to support the claims.

      I have no idea what you are on about. This article presents the idea that the Khazarian Jews are not converts but Jews that moved northward from Persia, first having been active on the Silk Road. Jews from Persia were also originally from the Levant. Nothing more nothing less.

    Okay, I’d like to convert and move to Israel too. Was Scotch-Irish, but got starved out or something. I’ve always felt like a non-practicing Jewish agnostic at heart though. Plus I had a huge crush on Sarah Silverman 20 years ago. Is that cool? Will you embrace me too? I need a homeland bro.

      The point of my article is that the Jews who are currently labelled Khazari are not converts of that old story but Jews who moved up from the Levant in the east and into Europe from there — as opposed to the Jews who moved from the Levant via the west and into Europe from the Mediterranean.

      And, if you want to convert, the procedure is well documented. Just convince a rabbi that you are a Jewish soul borne of a non-Jewish mother and then do all the work to become a Jew and you will, after immersion in a Mikve, then be a Jew. And, once a Jew by proper conversion, you will be no different from those who are borne of Jewish mothers.

    […] states that, while Ashkenazi Jews originate in the Levant, we have a large proportion of ancient Khazari genetic materials in our DNA. It is impossible at the current stage of technological know-how to know how true that may be. […]
