It’s time to dive back into the murky depths of real Jewish history.

Before we begin, let me explain how I got to the information I’m going to share with you in this post.

After I put up the posts about the Megelah Amukot’s suspected ‘xtian-Jewish’ tendencies, and the post about the SHACH being an increasingly likely candidate for the alter ego of the false messiah Shabtai Tzvi, I decided I had to look a bit further back along the family trees, to figure out what was really going on.

I bought myself some more massive sheets of cartridge paper…. some more pens….and I got to work trying to figure out who are these people’s ancestors?

====

Very quickly, I understood that the job was going to be easier than I’d first imagined, because THEY ALL JUST MARRIED THEMSELVES.

Over and over again, down at least the last 1,000 years and probably well before that, too.

So, as I drew up the family trees, I kept coming back to the same names, the same people as the ‘progenitors’ of so many of our famous rabbis and leaders. We’ll talk about specifics a little later on.

Then, I started to notice a few more things, like nearly all these ‘progenitors’ seemed to have strange links to ‘Jewish Christians’ – they either converted to xtianity themselves, or married xtians, or had parents who notably converted out. And then sometimes converted back in to Judaism. And then just as often converted ‘out’ again….

And many of these ‘Jewish Christians’ also overlapped with the old Jewish banking families and court Jews.

====

We’ll get to some names and details shortly, but I first want you to grasp the simple idea that ‘Jewish Christians’ and Court Jews, and rich Jewish bankers, and NEARLY ALL OUR MOST FAMOUS RABBIS – they all issue from exactly the same families.

====

At the same time, I also noticed another weird, disturbing trend in these ‘progenitor’ families.

According to halacha, it’s permitted for a niece to marry her uncle, and that happened a ton in these families.

But, even before ‘Shabtai Tzvi / SHACH’ showed up and started actively promoting inverse morality amongst his followers, I came across examples of:

Aunts marrying their nephews in these families down the generations – which is an halachically forbidden relationship.

====

Snippet from HERE:

The prohibition for a man to marry his aunt (and hence a woman to marry her nephew) is De’oraita (Vayikra 18;12-14 has all variations of aunt) while there is no verse in the Torah prohibiting a niece.

Why were they doing that?

I don’t have an answer. Yet. It could be, this was a ‘Karaite / Sadducee’ habit of thumbing their nose at the Torah’s rules. Or, it could be something else.

But one thing I can tell you for sure: It was happening a lot in these families.

====

So now, let’s dive in with some details.

Let’s begin with the illustrious ‘Treves’ family, whose descendants include people like the Maharsha, Shmuel Eideles; the REMA Moses Isserles, the TAZ, David Halevi Segal, the Megaleh Amukot, Natan Nata Shapiro – and of course, the SHACH and his wife, Yenta.

The story begins when I started trying to track down the ancestors of the ‘Megaleh Amukot’, Natan Nata Shapiro, to see if there was anything in his background that could suggest why he might have developed ‘Jewish Christian’ tendencies.

At that stage, I went back to the ‘first Shapira of Speyer’, someone called R’ Samuel Zalman Shapira of Speyer.

(The surname Shapiro / Shapira / Spiro / Spira derives from the town of “Speyer”.)

I sat down to do his basic family tree.

====

Very quickly on one piece of cartridge paper, I had a veritable ‘who’s who’ of the Jewish world.

There was Josel of Rosheim – ‘King of the Jews’, court banker and person suspected of ritual murders.

There was the ‘De Bonne’ family, AKA Stadthagens, AKA known-Sabbatean-Frankists-with-Jewish-Christian connections, GOLDSCHMIDTS.

There was Shabtai Tzvi / SHACH and his wife Yenta, the great, great granddaughter of the REMA.

And of course, the Megaleh Amukot and his problematic, incest-and-pedophilia-promoting descendant Jonathan Eybshutz.

====

And if that wasn’t enough, I also tripped over the first ‘Bacharach’ who started calling himself ‘Rothschild’.

He was Isaac Rothschild, who married one Keile Oppenheim.

His father, ‘Elchanan Bacharach z. Roten Schild’ was a first cousin of none other than the SHACH / Shabtai Tzvi.

(The Shach’s father, Meir HaCohen Katz Ashkenazi, had a sister Esther, who married ‘Isaac Elchanan Bacharach’. Esther and Isaac’s son is ‘Elchanan Bacharach z. Roten Schild, progenitor of the the known Sabbatean-Frankist Rothschilds.)

====

A long time ago, I was looking up stuff about ‘Shabtai Tzvi’ and the Rothschilds on Clifford Shack’s site HERE.

He had a picture gallery where he was saying that so many of the early Rothschilds seemed to bear a striking resemblance to false messiah Shabtai Tzvi.

Here’s a couple of screenshots:

Once you understand that Shabtai Tzvi = SHACH, and that the SHACH was the first cousin of Elchanan Bacharach Roten Schild, a lot more of those pieces start to fall into place.

====

So anyway, that first family tree really showed me that nearly all these people are mamash close family.

But I was still fishing for some more explicit ‘Jewish-Christian’, or ‘Jewish-Templars’, or ‘Jewish-Cathars’ link ups.

So I decided to go back even further.

R’ Samuel Zalman Shapira of Speyer was married to someone called Julia Minna Vergentlin TREVES.

So, I started doing the TREVES family tree – and that’s when I realised just how incestuous all this really is.

So many people are related to one couple in particular, called ‘ELIEZER and JUTTA TREVES’.

====

Here’s a photo of that particular bit of the family tree:

====

I know you can’t see much, but I want you to understand that the ‘findings’ I type up her are based on the information these trees help me put together.

First, let’s cover off some of the ‘aunts marrying nephews’ stuff – the obviously forbidden relationships, according to the Torah.

In this tree alone, we see that:

  • Aharon Luria (‘the first Luria’) marries his aunt, Miriam Spira.

His grand-daughter is Dreizel Miriam Zeisel Luria – the REMA‘s maternal grandfather – who marries one Eliezer Lipman SHRENTZELS.

(We’ll get to the Jewish-Christian Shrentzels in a minute.)

Aharon Luria’s great-grandson is none other than R’ Shlomo Luria, the MAHARSHAL.

==

When there were ‘rumours’ that so many of the leading rabbis of the middle ages were actually products of illegitimate relationships – including the Maharal of Prague and his brother! – the MAHARSHAL put out a statement saying that people should stop spreading these ‘nadler’ calmunies.

Screenshot from HERE:

As usual, we are seeing with hindsight that there was way more to the illegitimacy / nadler ‘rumours’ than official history is letting on.

==

Further back in the tree, we find this:

  • R’ Moshe Gershon Altshuler (Ebereles) married his aunt, Chana TREVES.

R’ Moshe Gershon  Altshuler (Ebereles)’s great-grandson is that same Eliezer Lipmann SHRENTZEL we saw above, the grandfather of the REMA.

Now, the REMA has ‘illegitimacy’ streaming down two sides of his family tree.

And the same ‘aunt-nephew’ pattern also continued going forward, in the REMA’s extended family.

====

You remember from HERE, we figured out that that REMA’s second wife Golda actually came from the ‘Karaite’ family of R’ Shalom Shachna (HaKohen) Kahana (Kohen Tzedek) of Lublin.

Golda’s brother, R’ Israel Shachna (aka R’ Israel Charif from Lublin) had a daughter, Rivka, who married one ‘Naftali Tzvi Hirsch Shor, ABD Brisk and Lublin’.

His daughter, Reisel Schor, marries her nephew, Israel Meisels.

Israel Meisels is the son of Reisel’s brother, Avraham Chaim Shor.

Israel Meisels’ brother is Simcha Bunim Meisels, the ABD of Krakow, who marries…. Dreizel, the daughter of the REMA.

It’s a small world.

====

Ok, now let’s a take closer look at some of the ‘Christian-Jewish’ stuff going on in the REMA’s family tree.

So very many of the ‘leading lights’ in the Ashkenazi Rabbinic world apparently descend from the SHRENTZEL family, that we’ve mentioned above.

Where did this ‘SHRENTZEL’ family come from?

That was the question.

====

Let me introduce you to:

Emerich Szerencsés (also known as Fortunatus; died August 1526) was deputy treasurer of the Kingdom of Hungary and a Jewish convert to Christianity.

Here’s a bit more from the Hungarian Cyclowiki page HERE:

Here’s another brief snippet, from Wikipedia (which is written like hagiography):

He was baptised by Ladislaus Szalkai, Archbishop of Grau, and took the baptismal name Emerich after his sponsor Emerich Perényi, Palatine of Hungary. His wife and his sons Abraham and Ephraim remained practising Jews.

After his conversion he was appointed deputy treasurer, using his position to send coded letters warning Hungarian Jews on imminent persecution, to secure the revocation of the expulsion of the Jews from Prague and to save a Jewish man and woman who had been condemned to death by fire.

====

That’s all the ‘good news’.

In reality, ‘Emerich Szerencses’ (Solomon Gluck SHRENTZEL’) was caught embezzling huge amounts of money, and his actions subsequently led to the Jewish Ghetto in Ofen being sacked by furious Hungarians.

This comes from the Jewish Encyclopaedia, HERE:

The nobility of the realm, headed by Stephan Verböczi, accused Szerencsés of being the cause of the financial embarrassment of the country; and some of the members of the Diet of 1525 even demanded that he be burned at the stake.

Szerencsés, indeed, had been grossly negligent in his official duties, and, in common with many of the most respected noblemen of the time, had made free use of the state’s money.

He was therefore imprisoned by King Louis II., whose favorite he had been, but was released shortly afterward. On the adjournment of the Diet servants of the nobles, reenforced by the rabble, attacked and plundered his home, and he escaped the rage of the populace only by flight.

At the same time the mob stormed the ghetto, and seized all the valuables belonging to the Jews.

====

Back on Cyclowiki, we’re told that he deliberately debased the coins in Hungary by 50%, and was actually burnt at the stake for his crimes.

(Is this a good time to remind us all that the Karaite-Khazars were also in charge of the royal mints, wherever they seemed to go?)

====

What happened to the Jewish-Christian ‘SHRENTZEL’ family?

His descendants adopted the name of Sachs.

Of course, we don’t know if that also included his two non-Jewish sons from his Christian girlfriend. (You’ll recall that most Karaites hold that Jewish descent is decided patrilineally, via the man…)

But before that happened, they also intermarried with a whole bunch of other dodgy Court Jews whose family members had ‘become Christian’ so they could carry on whispering in the ear of royalty, including the descendants of:

R’ Akiva HaKohen Katz  of Uban – (AKA John Ernuszt) – ancestor of Shabtai Tzvi / SHACH, amongst many other ‘big rabbis’.

R’ Moshe Fiszel (also accused of extortion in collecting tax from the Jewish community in 1499). Remember, one of his sons converted out and became ‘Stefan Fiszel Powidzk H. Korab‘, while another son Ephraim / Franczek Fiszel, had a son Moshe, who was burnt at the stake over accusations of ritual murder.

Ephraim / Franczek Fiszel was apparently married to Valentina LURIA – daughter of the MAHARSHAL, Shlomo Luria, who wrote that whole thing telling everyone to stop ‘spreading lies’ about the rabbis’ impeccable yichus.

It’s a small world.

====

A few more ‘forbidden relationships’, in this post, and then we’ll wrap it up for now.

I don’t want your brains to explode!

Back on that ‘ELIEZER and JUTTA TREVES’ family tree, we see this:

  • Daughter CHAVA TREVES marries YITZHAK SCHRENTZEL – and their descendants include the REMA, a bunch of ‘Ephraim Fischels’, a bunch of SHORs, and Yenta, wife of Shabtai Tzvi / SHACH. And CHAIM of VOLOZHIN.

==

  • Daughter CHANA YONA marries R’ ZVI HELMAN – and their grandson is the MAHARSHA, R Shmuel Eliezer HaLevi Eideles. In turn, the MAHARSHA‘s grandson is the MEGALEH AMUKOT, Natan Nata Shapiro, and his great-grandson is JONATHAN EYBSHUTZ.

==

  • Un-named daughter marries R’ SHLOMO ZALMAN HALEVI (STEINBERGER), and their grandson is the TAZ, David Halevi Segal. The TAZ’s grandchildren include R’ ELIEZER LIPPMAN HEILPRIN, who marries MARGOLA SHOR – the probable mother of false messiah JACOB FRANK. And R’ Eliezer’s brother, ‘R’ JOEL HEILPRIN BAAL SHEM OF ZAMOSCH‘ – aka, Avraham Shmuel Chaim Falk, the ‘bad Baal Shem’ of London, Jacob Frank’s father-in-law, and founder of the satanic ‘Order of the Golden Dawn.’ (More TAZ descendants include the wife of the Alter Rebbe of Chabad….)

==

  • Son R’ NAFTALI HIRSCH TREVES has two daughters. One marries R’ SHMUEL ISH-ZVI ASHKENAZI BAK, and they have a son, R’ CHAIM ISH ZVI (of Kremenitz) – who again marries his aunt, Naftali Hirsh’s other daughter. Their son is SHMUEL SHMELKE ZAK, whose son Aharon marries the SHACH’s daughter, Tova. Their descendants include CHAIM of VOLOZHIN.

==

  • Meanwhile, another son of R’ SHMUEL ISH-ZVI ASHKENAZI BAK is R’ YAAKOV KOPPEL ASHKENAZI, who marries SAREL MEISELS – the REMA’s grand-daughter, via Simcha Bunim Meisels, mentioned above. (Simcha’s brother Israel Meisels marries his aunt, Reisel Shor….)

====

What can we learn from this?

A lot.

Not least, that those families who became ‘notable Sabbateans’, and then later on, devolved even further down into ‘notable Frankists’, appear to descend from a bunch of ‘Jewish-Christians’ with the anti-Torah (possibly Sadducee/Karaite) habit of marrying nephews to aunts.

And their descendants are still controlling nearly all the bits of the the secular and religious Jewish world today.

And personally, I don’t think that’s a CO-IN-CID-ENCE.

TBC

====

UPDATE:

I went back to check more of the SHACH / Shabtai Tzvi’s descendants, as I remembered seeing some ‘nephews marrying aunts’ stuff there, too.

Bingo!

THIS is a screenshot for a discussion around Menachem Meinish Chayot / Chajes of Vilna, who apparently also married his own aunt.

====

His great grandson and namesake married the SHACH’s daughter, ‘Esther HaTzaddika’.

====

Apparently, so many of our ‘biggest rabbis’ didn’t care a hoot, that they were marrying into families of mamzers.

This is mind-boggling.

And it suggests that the thesis that the Jewish Community got ‘hijacked’ by fake Jews (Sadducee-Karaite-Christian-Ekesaite-Khazars???) long before Shabtai Tzvi / SHACH came along is increasingly looking like a credible idea.

TBC

====

Here are more of the ‘Real Jewish History’ posts, to give you more background:

Did ‘HaKohen Al-Khazaris’ really take over the Jewish community?

That is the question (based on more of the information we uncovered in THIS post.)

There’s a lot that needs to be birured before we can really even try to answer that properly, so I decided to start trying to pin down more of the ‘fake Jews’ who have been leading our communities for the last at least 500 years (at least….).

The person I decided to start with was Natan Neta Spiro, the ancestor of known Sabbatean, Jonathan Eybshutz.

(If it’s news to you that Jonathan Eybshutz was indeed a Sabbatean – and one who practised incest and wrote books promoting it in the Jewish community – read THIS.)

====

Natan Neta Spiro (1585-1633) was known as the ‘Megaleh Amukot’ after his work of that name.

He’s been on my radar for a while as an interesting person, and one who seemed to have some very funny ideas, to say the least, that predated the false messiah Shabtai Tzvi by at least 30 years.

This snippet comes from YIVO, HERE:

During the eighteenth century, Spira’s name was linked to a putative Sabbatian sect, involving Jews and Lutherans, that was connected to Yonatan Eybeschütz.

Although the sect was established in the 1720s, its writings claimed Spira to be its founder, and maintained that he had received a divine revelation calling upon him to adopt the Christian faith.

Eybeschütz was, in fact, descended from Spira, and indeed was proud of this lineage. But the historical anachronism that ties the lives of the two men has not been sufficiently clarified. Indeed, Spira died 32 years before the birth of the Sabbatian movement.

The problematic connection is not entirely baseless, however, as scholars have claimed that Spira drew a great deal from Christianity and even revived various elements of the Jewish–Christian tradition that are found in midrashic literature. 

====

That YIVO entry continues:

A historical error may be the source of the mystery: it seems that Natan ben Shelomoh Spira of Kraków was confused with Natan ben Re’uven Shapira ha-Yerushalmi (d. 1667), who left Kraków for Jerusalem and was a kabbalist.

The latter raised money in Amsterdam for the Jews of Jerusalem and made contact there with Dutch and English Christians with millenarian views, who regarded him as the rabbi who would bring Jews to acknowledge the truth of Christianity.

Although Spira died before the rise of the Sabbatian movement and its subsequent Jewish and Christian incarnations, the fact that Jewish, Jewish-Sabbatian, and Jewish-Christian sources all link him to messianism and to Christianity arouses interest, and points to the complexity of the connection between the Jewish and Christian worlds in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

====

So, I was trying to find out more about this ‘Sabbatean sect’ in the 1720s that was linked to both Lutherans and Jonathan Eybshutz, and of course, that’s proving quite challenging.

And it may also be some deliberate disinformation, because if Jonathan Eybshutz was linked to any xtian group, that would appear to have been the Jesuits.

As a young man in Prague, Eybshutz worked closely with the Jesuits, in particular, leader of the Prague ‘Inquisition’ Francis Haselbauer, to put out a heavily – and unusually – censored version of the Talmud in Prague, where all the passages deemed to be ‘heretical’ to xtianity and its founder was censored.

But where this censorship was particularly unusual, is that Eybshutz ‘rewrote’ the offending passages in such a smooth way, secretly substituting his own heretical ideas and opinions for those originally found in the Talmud, that it was almost impossible for a reader to understand which was ‘Jesuit-sponsored propaganda’ – and what was the original text.

====

The following snippet comes from this article:

Jonathan Eybshutz: censorer of the Talmud printed in Prague, 1728

According to William Popper (Censorship of Hebrew Books pg. 112, citing other sources) the permanent inquisition commission in Prague consisted of three Jesuits, including Haselbauer, not Dominicans.

Popper further writes (pg. 116) that Haselbauer enforced searches of Jewish homes for uncensored Jewish books, which would be confiscated.

Because of the unusually harsh situation, Prague’s Chief Rabbi David Oppenheim did not bring his amazing and famous library to Prague with him when he assumed office in 1702. Instead it remained in the custody of his father-in-law Leffmann Behrends in Hanover….

Under these conditions Rabbi Jonathan Eybeschutz, then a young rabbi in Prague with the title Darshan, obtained permission from Haselbauer to print a heavily censored Talmud.

====

Take a look at that post.

It brings the title page, and goes through three specific ‘changes’ that Eybshutz made to just one daf!

If you go HERE, you’ll find an essay by Frankist historian Pawel Maciejko called:

The Rabbi and the Jesuit: On Rabbi Jonathan Eibeschütz and Father Franciscus Haselbauer Editing the Talmud

Here’s a pertinent snippet:

[D]uring his early years, the most important controversy concerning Eibeschütz was not the dispute surrounding his suspected Sabbateanism and the heterodox writings attributed to him but rather the outrage engendered by his friendly relations with the local Catholic clergy and his alleged involvement in the publication of heavily censored editions of the Pentateuch, the Talmud, and the prayer book.

In the eyes of many contemporaries, the damage caused by the appearance of these latter publications vastly overshadowed any harm stemming from the heretical views expressed in Eibeschütz’s kabbalistic works and amulets.

====

At least some of what people were so upset about is that Eybshutz was deliberately distorting the Talmud to ‘promote’ his own view of a universal ‘one world’ religion that had a lot of similarity with large parts of xtian theology.

Moshe Hagiz was so upset by what Eybshutz was doing to the text of the Talmud, he formulated a request to have the Prague Edition burnt… Not something any rabbi would suggest in that era of mass Jewish ‘book burnings’, without some very weighty deliberation.

One more snippet, but please go and read the whole thing, to get more of a feel for just how ‘anti-Jewish’ some of Eybshutz’s amendments and additions to the Talmud were:

Eibeschütz believed that there was no final, fixed, and canonized text of the Talmud;…

Eibeschütz put himself in the shoes of the ancient sages and saw himself not as expurgating but rather as creating the text of the Talmud.

====

Remember, Sadducee-Karaites and xtians both shared a hatred of the Talmud, the Oral Law.

And that’s still going strong today, as the following screenshot shows:

====

Am I saying Eybshutz was a Karaite?

No – but he was a Sabbatean, that’s much for sure.

And the Sabbatean-Frankists certainly carried on and amplified the ‘anti Torah Jews and Torah’ attitude of the Sadduccee-Karaites, and the other ancient Jewish-xtian-gnostic groups that are all hidden in the mist, still.

====

So, I decided to try and pin-down Eybshutz’s links to the xtians a bit more, and to also start taking a closer look at his illustrious forbears, to see if I could figure out more of these links.

In the process of doing that, I came across this article on the xtian ‘Israel Today’ website:

Four Rabbis Find Yeshua (Jesus) – Israel Today

Snippet:

The first event that we know about happened in a small town in southern Poland, Pinczow (near Krakow), around the year 1680. Four well-known rabbis – Rabbi Krokeffer and Rabbi Sender, both from what is now the Czech Republic, and Rabbi Chaija Chajon from Turkey met with the Chief Rabbi of Pinczow, interestingly called by his people “Rabbi Megalleh Amukkoth” (the one who discovers deep mysteries).

This whole article is about how the xtians basically used a bunch of corrupt ‘rabbis’, starting in the 17th century, to launch what you can basically call the ‘Jews for Jesus’ idea.

You can read all about it HERE.

(Warning: puke bag mandatory.)

====

I’ve covered a lot of what you’ll learn there previously, but before we get back to the Megaleh Amukot’s xtian leanings, I just wanted to point out a few more things about all the ‘Jews for Jesus’ missionary activity currently going on in Israel.

Go HERE to read about the CMJ – going since 1809, and one of the earliest ‘xtian zionist’ organisations of modern times.

Go HERE to read about the ‘Messianic Jewish’ community currently hanging out in Talpiot’s Industrial area, snippet:

The current premise of the congregation is in the Talpiot industrial area. They own the fifth floor of a large building on Yad Charutzim 4. 

Go HERE to read about their ‘brand new’ congregation in Mevasseret Zion.

And go HERE to read the blog of Tuvia Pollack, a ‘4th generation’ Jewish believer in Yoshki who lives in Jerusalem.

And of course, all this is just the tip of the iceberg of all the ‘Jews for Jesus’ stuff still going on in the State of Israel.

====

They like to pretend there are no missionaries here, that it’s all ‘illegal’ for missionaries to live here, and to preach here and to convert Jews here – but of course, they are lying.

Two of my three neighbors in Jerusalem are families of xtian missionaries. One of them even moved here at the height of the Corona lockdowns, when the State of Israel wasn’t letting real Jews into the country….

Again, all these are clues as to who is really controlling the State of Israel.

====

Back to that weird snippet from the ‘4 rabbis find Yoshki’ article, above.

The first event that we know about happened in a small town in southern Poland, Pinczow (near Krakow), around the year 1680. Four well-known rabbis – Rabbi Krokeffer and Rabbi Sender, both from what is now the Czech Republic, and Rabbi Chaija Chajon from Turkey met with the Chief Rabbi of Pinczow, interestingly called by his people “Rabbi Megalleh Amukkoth”.

====

The first thing to notice is that the timing is totally wrong for the Megaleh Amukot, who died in 1633 – some 50 years before this meeting of ‘Jews for Yoshki’ is meant to have happened.

So I was about to discard this as a credible source…. until I remembered I’d seen something similar in THIS piece by reputable orthodox Jewish historian, Sid Leiman:

RABBI JONATHAN EIBESCHUETZ AND THE ALLEGED JEWISH-CHRISTIAN SECT IN EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY AMSTERDAM

This screenshot is from page 6, go check it out for yourself:

====

This statement appears there word-for-word.

Here’s a snippet of the deeper story behind all this:

In 1772, a Jew from Amsterdam named Simon approached Pastor Burgmann of the Lutheran Church in London, seeking, as it were, spiritual asylum. He was knowledgeable in matters Christian and claimed that he had been baptized in Amsterdam by a secret society of Jewish Christians who were outwardly Jewish but secretly Christian.

Simon arranged for Burgmann to enter into correspondence with that secret society. The possibility that an entire group of Jews had converted to Christianity in one fell swoop intrigued Burgmann.

Ultimately, Burgmann referred the matter to the Moravian Brethren, an evangelical and pietistic Protestant community with an office in London.

====

Readers with sharp memories will remember that we already make the link between the ‘Bad Baal Shem’ of London, (and Jacob Frank’s first father-in-law, Dr Falk, and the Moravian Brethren, or Brotherhood, in THIS post.

Here’s a pertinent snippet:

Falk – and others – fused together the already warped Sabbatean theosophy with high-level Freemasonry rites.

One of the people Falk was in close contact with at this time was Count Nicolai Zinzendorf, who was another of these ‘two-faced’ people.

In one world, he was an upstanding xtian missionary, church leader, and xtian ‘zionist’, who had a big eye on getting Jews to convert….

Then in the other world, he was the leader of an occult group called the Moravian Brotherhood, who wanted to totally uproot society and get rid of all class structures. Zinzendorf’s Brotherhood had branches in Holland and in London, as well as in Moravia.

Moravia was the stamping ground of the Sabbatean Jonathan Eybshutz, and later became a stronghold of the Frankists who retained their Sabbatean-Frankist beliefs, whilst remaining the Jewish community. As we will discover, that was no coincidence.

==

In the 1750s, Zinzendorf developed a new, secret doctrine for ‘initiates’ to the top secret ‘German Pilgrim Section’ of his Brotherhood, which basically copied the worst antinomian Sabbatian practises of breaking every sexual taboo mandated by the Torah.

====

You see, how every new piece of information we dig up only serves to confirm the theory?

That’s usually a pretty good sign you are travelling in the right direction, if all the new pieces ‘fit’ the puzzle – and provide solutions for more of the mysteries.

Anyway, back to the first-hand account of how these more recent ‘Jews for Jesus’ apparently got started in the basement of the Megaleh Amukot’s basement, on the day of Tisha B’av.

Snippet:

Then R. Megalle Amukkoth stood up, took the 3 men by the hand and said unto them: “Strengthen yourselves ye men of
Israel, let us not this day mourn, but rejoice for the Lord hath spoken unto us and will redeem us.”

All these 4 men felt a certain joy and called directly upon the name of the Saviour and went in that moment into the cellar where R. Megalle Amukkoth had his מקוה .

There were always 3 witnesses as one of them plunged himself into the water, till after this manner they were baptized….

Here the Church of Christ took its beginning in Israel, without one of these men having ever seen the New Testament.

====

I’m just going to quote more snippets of this firsthand account of what appears to have been going on in this Jewish-Xtian community centred around the Megaleh Amukot, because the information is astounding:

The baptized were diligent in baptizing and converting their relations and friends, and to receive them into the community of Christ, so that 100 were baptized... They kept to the ceremonial law. Every day more were baptized on their belief of the chief articles of the Christian faith, and hereby it remained a long time.

Particularly in Prague, where so many ראשי ישיבות and many בחורים were, the Holy Ghost wrought powerfully and an uncommon blessing was spread abroad.

====

Yea, even in Prague and Moravia this pestilence [of these ‘true believers’ being persecuted by the Jewish community] got an ascendency.

They were persecuted, but the Brethren also suffered by it, because they were remarked as having a particular walk and fellowship together, therefore the Jews believed that they were also Sabsazebitem [Sabbateans].

====

This next snippet is mind-blowing:

It is still to be observed that Rabbi Chayim Ashkenaas, grandfather of our Baruch and Simon, and who was then a youth and afterwards Chief Rabbi of Kreutz in Hungary, and Rabbi Meir Eisenstadt, a friend of the former who was afterwards Chief Rabbi of Eisenstadt, where both of them were afterwards great blessing.

These youths were rescued from the Sabsazebitem and converted to the word of life, and afterwards brought many souls in Hungary to the true faith.

====

Meir Eisenstadt – the Meir Panim – was a known Sabbatean, whose brother was Sabbatean false prophet Mordechai Mokiach.

The Meir Panim was also one of the main teachers of Jonathan Eybshutz.

Back to the text.

====

R. Megalle Amukkoth in Pintschoff had much blessing in his labor, but did not live long.

At his death (as is known to all the Jews), he said that a child should be born in his family whose name would be יהונתן .
He would bring much salvation to Israel…

But there was a grandson of R. Megalle Amukkoth whose name was Rabbi Nathan. He was in Prague at the ישיבה .His wife was with child in Pintschoff…. But it came to pass that this Rabbi Nathan was converted in Prague, and as soon as he heard of the death of his grandfather and his prophecy, he returned home.

But it came to pass that when he came to Dresden in an inn where was at the same time a real servant of our Saviour, a preacher whose name was Mr. Meysinger.

Rabbi Nathan opened to him the whole secret, persuaded him to go with him to Pintschoff, and in case his wife should be delivered of a son, that he would after the circumcision baptize him. This was resolved.

They went to Pintschoff. A son was born, was circumcised, and baptized by the above preacher and called יהונתן .

====

This baptised son of R’Natan, the grandson of the Megaleh Amukot, is none other than Jonathan Eybshutz.

Back to the text:

By the endeavours of his Brethren and other circumstances, he [R’ Natan] was called to be Chief Rabbi in Eybeschuetz in Moravia. He accepted the call, sent his family before him, but he died on the road in Poland.

The mother and the boy were very poor in Eybeschuetz. But as the boy was very forward in his understanding, the mother resolved to bring him to Prague to study the Talmud. And to the astonishment of the Jews, he was so very forward that he was able to deliver a very acute דרשה to the Jews in the public synagogue when he was in his 10th year.

All the Jews with one voice said: This is the boy of whom R. Megalle Amukkoth prophesied.

The Jesuits sought to entrap him, but a divine providence watched over him.

At length the Brethren began to converse with him, to lay before him the word of God. The Holy Ghost was active. The Brethren prayed earnestly to our Saviour for him, and they at last found him in his 14th year in such a disposition that they could make it known to him that he was baptized.

====

[B]efore we treat the present state of the Church of Israel, we must tell how Rabbi Jonathan was appointed and inducted as a teacher and preacher in Israel.

You will easily conceive why Rabbi Jonathan was called to be Chief Rabbi of Hamburg, viz. because his labour was much blessed there to many souls, who were converted and who believed that he would have much more blessing in his old age, but in vain.

Satan, who guided the pen of Rabbi Emden, did much mischief therewith.

====

After reams and reams of more stuff about how Eybshutz learnt the Lutheran creed, and started baptizing people all over the place – God forbid!!! – we get to this strange segment:

Our Brethren look upon the Society [to convert Jews] established in London as a work of Grace… 

(They then mention the edict of the King of Prussia by which all the Jews who are not worth 1000 Dollars each should
leave his new acquired territory in Poland.

In this part of Poland are 39 Jewish Congregations out of which near 2000 poor Jews will be expelled….Therefore, it is the best time to pay attention to them.)

Our thought was that this godly Society should turn particularly to the Jews in new Prussia, make an address to them.
We believe that it would be with little trouble that we could send 100 or 200 families to the new colonies in America. Propose it to the Society…. 

These Jews have still some months respite. They believe that they shall by means of the Jews here and at London by
means of the Prince of Orange and the King of England to effect something.

The Jew congregation in Berlin have wrote about it to a certain Jew called Frank in London.

The Jews have collected 100,000 gulden to this end. 

====

This sounds like a clear reference to Jacob Frank, son-in-law of the Bad Baal Shem of London, who is known to have had links with the Moravian Brotherhood.

Wow, so much new information to try and assimilate here.

There’s a lot more to dig into, but I will stop here for now, and try to pick this up again in the next post, with God’s help.

You might also like this article:

 

Remember the discussion of the non-Jew who wanted to convert just so he could get to wear the clothes of the Kohen HaGadol?

I always found that idea a little far-fetched, if I’m honest.

What, you are going to turn your whole life around, keep Shabbat, keep kosher, get circumcised, etc, just for the chance to wear a fancy turban and a tunic with pomegranate adornments on its hem?!

Really?

But not for the first time, I’m understanding that nothing our Sages taught was stam.

====

In this post, we’re going back to that ‘Jewish king’ of the Khazars, Sabriel / Bulan, to uncover a few more mysteries.

(Click to read Part 1 and Part 2 of this series of posts, tracing the links between Khazars, Karaites – and Kristians.)

Just to recap, there are at least two versions of the story of how Khazar came to have a ‘Jewish’ king.

The more mainstream story, as brought down in the Kuzari (which was written 400 years after the event is meant to have occurred….) is that the Khazarian King ‘Bulan’ wants to stop being a pagan, for unspecified reasons, so brings a Jew, a xtian, and a muslim to ‘dispute’ with him, so he can pick which religion he wants.

The Jewish rabbi – identified as Isaac Sangari – persuades the King, and hey presto, he converts to Judaism along with his subject.

Isaac Sangari is buried in the Karaite cemetery in the Crimea.

==

Then, there’s a second story, that seems to me to be more factually correct, based on the letter found in the Cairo Geniza by Solomon Shechter.

That letter, between a Karaite Jew and a Sephardi, basically says that a bunch of Persian and Armenian Jews fled to Khazaria to escape ‘persecution’ from the authorities.

As at that time, the Muslim authorities basically gave the Jewish community leader called the Exilarch the political power to rule over his own Jewish community; and also as the Karaites themselves explain that the ‘Exilarch’ was usually a senior ‘Rabbiner’ Jew – i.e. a Jew who actually believed in the Talmud and the Oral Law, and that they were being ‘persecuted’ for not following it by the Exilarchs –

We can deduce that most if not all of the ‘Jews’ who were fleeing to Khazaria at this time were heretics, of one stripe or another, including a lot of Karaites, but also including a lot of Jewish-Gnostics, and followers of the (demonic, half-Jewish, formerly xtian-gnostic-Jewish) Prophet Mani.

==

According to this second, repressed story, one of these Jewish heretics, ‘Sabriel-Bulan’, joined the Khazar nobility, then somehow rose up the ranks to become King of Khazar.

And then his Jewish wife, Serach, convinced him to ‘come out of the closet’ as a Jew, at that point, and to make public teshuva.

Of course, if his country was already filled with a bunch of closet Jewish heretics running away from Rabbinic rules in Persia and Armenia, that would explain how overnight, ‘Khazaria’ apparently acquired a sizeable Jewish population.

And it would also explain how the Karaites were such a strong segment of the Jewish community in Khazar, which otherwise doesn’t make so much sense.

====

Now, let’s see what supporting evidence we can find for both, or either, of these stories – and what else we can learn about was really going on in and around Khazaria, at that time.

==

EXHIBIT 1: THE GENI FAMILY TREE FOR KING SABRIEL-BULAN

You can find that HERE, screenshot below:

====

This family tree shows that the uncle of ‘Bulan-Sabriel’s father was none other than the Eastern Roman Emperor, Justinian II.

Justinian II was one of the cruellest Caesars of what we know as ‘the Byzantines’.

Before we get to him, let’s take a step back and try to understand who these ‘Byzantines’ really were.

====

By the 6th century, the Roman Empire was so huge, it broke in half.

There was the Western Roman Empire, with its capital in Rome, and its popes in the Vatican – which effectively ended in 476 CE, with the sack of Rome.

And then there was the Eastern Roman Empire, with its capital city in Constantinople (now modern-day Istanbul)  – which continued on for around another 1000 years, in various forms.

Snippet from HERE:

According to most Western history books, the Roman Empire ended in AD 476, when the last emperor, Romulus Augustulus, was deposed.

Here is where Orthodox Christians will object — the Roman Empire did not fall in 476; only the weak western half did.

In the East, the Empire lasted for almost another thousand years, until the Ottoman Turks captured Constantinople in 1453.

Most modern historians call this the “Byzantine Empire,” but that’s a misnomer used to hide the fact that the empire based in Constantinople was, in fact, the Roman Empire.

====

That Eastern Roman Empire is known historically as ‘Byzantium’. It set up its own ‘pope’, had its own ecumenical councils, and the Emperors of the Eastern Roman Empire aggressively ‘missionized’ their version of xtianity in the territories it controlled.

Those territories include much of what became Russia and the Eastern European countries.

And that version of xtianity became known as Greek / Russian Orthodoxy.

====

Now, if you go HERE, you’ll find a really good description of what a blood-thirsty, back-stabbing, plain evil ruler the Emperor Justinian II really was.

(Google translate from the Russian.)

Even as a kid, his servants were scared of him, and he had a reputation for torturing animals in barbaric ways.

As an adult, his sadistic personality really came into its own, and he kept his subjects and his neighbors in a state of abject terror with his cruelty and oppression.

Not surprisingly, there was an uprising – and in that uprising, Justinian II’s nose was slit (or cut off, depending on the version) – because there was a rule that someone with a physical deformity couldn’t be the Emperor.

Long story short, Justinian got round this by having a second prosthetic nose made out of pure gold, and staged a temporary come back with the help of the Slavs of Bulgaria.

But then, he turned on the Slavs of Bulgaria, too, and a second coup occurred that saw Justinian and his only heir, a son, murdered in the streets.

====

Here’s two key points to remember about this psychotic mass-murdering Emperor, who was the defacto ‘leader’ of what we now call the Greek / Russian Orthodox xtian church:

  1. The Greek Orthodox church made this insane mass murderer a ‘Saint’.

(Screenshot from HERE:)

====

2. He made a big name for himself in the church by especially persecuting the followers of the half-Jewish, xtian- gnostic-demon-worshiping ‘Prophet Mani’.

====

3. He was married to a woman called ‘Theodoria of Khazaria’.

She was a princess of Khazar, and Theodoria’s brother was called Busir, the Khagan, or King of Khazar.

Busir’s children were Barjik Al-Khazari, and Princess Glaven, who married King Constantin II of AbKhazia – what we know as modern-day Georgia.

====

Barjik’s son is our man, ‘Bulan-Sabriel’, the guy who is meant to have either converted to Judaism, or just come out of the closet as a pre-existing Jew.

If you check back in the Khazar family tree, it seems the Khazar kings descend from:

Mengsen of the Turks (not Jewish…)

and

Chinese Emperor Wen of Western Wei (not Jewish…)

Unless we can find some more Jewish roots for the Al-Khazari family, at this stage it looks to me that it’s more likely that ‘Bulan-Sabriel’ did convert, at least, in some fake, external way, and wasn’t a closet Jewish heretic.

Assuming, of course, that what’s described in the Kuzari is accurate.

And at this point, given how the main ‘Jewish’ protagonist in that story appears to be a Talmud-hating Karaite…. that’s starting to feel like quite a bit assumption to make.

====

There’s another important detail here that provides another suggestion for how both versions of the story might at least contain some kernel of truth.

King ‘Bulan-Sabriel’ was apparently married to a Jewish woman named Serach Al-Yehudi.

I’ve seen over and over again when researching real Jewish history, that the power-hungry ‘Erev Rav’ heretics in our midst always seem to ‘infiltrate’ non-Jewish royal families by marrying their beautiful daughters to the powerful rulers.

If you pay attention to the women, that’s where the real history comes into view.

====

Let’s sum up, before we move forward:

  1. There were two parts to the Roman Empire.
  2. The Western part – which is connected to ‘Roman Catholicisim’ – fell in 476 C.E.
  3. The Eastern part – which is connected to Greek / Russian Orthodoxy – only came to an end in 1453, when the Turkish Muslims captured Constantinople.
  4. The Byzantines‘ is just another name for this Eastern part of the Roman Empire.
  5. There were a number of ‘Jewish’ refugees in ‘religiously tolerant’ Khazar in the 8th century, but they seem to have been people who were ‘escaping persecution’
  6. Many of these people appear to have been ‘escaping persecution’ in Persia and Armenia by the authentically Jewish Exilarchs, who believed in the Oral Law, and were trying to enforce the Torah’s rules – i.e., the refugees in Khazaria were Jewish heretics.
  7. These ‘Jewish heretics’ included all these ‘Erev Rav’ types of Jews, like Jewish-karaites, and ‘Jewish-xtians’, and probably also some ‘Jewish-demon-worshipers’.
  8. At the same time, the (Greek Orthodox) xtian Roman Emperor Justinian II, who was a sadistic tyrant, was persecuting the followers of the Prophet Mani, called ‘Manicheans’, many of whom also fled to Khazar.
  9. Mani himself was (at most…) half-Jewish. His mother was an Armenian, and his father was part of a Jewish-xtian sect called the Elcesaites.
  10. Manicheanism continued to be a very big religion in places like China.
  11. The Khazar royal family partially descended from the Chinese Emperor Wen of Western Wei, and partially from ‘Turkic’ tribes.
  12. Justinian II married a Khazar princess he renamed ‘Theodora‘.
  13. Theodora’s brother was the grandpa of ‘Sabriel-Bulan’, the guy who is meant to have converted to Judaism after discussions with a suspected Karaite, Isaac Sangari.
  14. Sabriel-Bulan doesn’t descend from Jews himself.
  15. But, ‘Sabriel-Bulan’ was apparently married to a Jewish woman, Serach Al-Yehudi.

====

At this stage, we could jump off into a million directions with this post.

Many ‘conspiracy theorists’ are saying ‘the Khazarian mafia’ is behind so much of what is going wrong in our world, and that 95% of Ashkenazi Jews are ‘Khazarian’ – i.e. blaming the Jews, and especially ‘the Rothschilds’ for everything.

The reasoning behind this idea seems go like this:

  1. The pagan, demon-worshipping Khazar King Bulan-Sabriel ‘converted to Judaism’, together with most of his kingdom in or around 740 CE.
  2. He was ‘forced’ to convert by neighboring rulers, who were sick of his evil, child-eating, pagan-worshipping, demonic ways.
  3. So, the conversion was always ‘fake’, and the ‘Khazar Jews’ secretly continued on as devil-worshipping pagans – with a really good trade network.
  4. The Khazar kingdom got into wars with what become ‘orthodox xtian’ Russia over the next 2-3 centuries, and was finally defeated and dissolved in the 10th (others claim 13th) century.
  5. Those demonic-worshipping, fake-Jewish ‘Khazars’ then blended back into the Jewish community, to become ‘Ashkenazi Jews’.
  6. The Rothschilds – amongst others – descend from these evil ‘Khazar’ fake-Jews.

====

How much of this has a factual basis?

That’s really what we are trying to figure out here.

If you go HERE, you’ll find a very interesting discussion with historian Shaul Stampfner – that originally appeared in Ukrainian – discussing whether these  demonic, pagan Khazars were really ‘Jewish’ at all.

It’s entitled:

Jewish Nomads, or was the Khazar Khanite a Jewish State?

Snippet:

[A]rchaeology does not offer any proof of the conversion theory.

There are no grafitti. Some people connect the candelabras that were found during digs with Judaism, but these were not explicitly Jewish candelabra, simply a symbol of light. Burial rites did not change. Some rituals are generally banned in Judaism. But there are exceptions.

There is a coin that was made by the Khazars with the Arabic text “Moses, messenger of God”—Moses, not Mohammed.

And this proves the involvement of Jews in the production of coins in Khazaria. Jews were often specialists in this.

This may be proof of an anti-Muslim and pro-Jewish policy. But there is a saying: “One swallow does not a summer make.” It’s the same thing with coins. If the khanate had been Jewish and made coins, then there would have been more such inscriptions. But we have only one.

It is easier to state that there was a Jew who was engaged in minting coins in Khazaria.

Therefore, we still do not have proof. And when there is no proof, it is easier to say that this never happened.

====

It’s possible that Shaul Stampfer – a professor of Eastern European Jewish history is just ‘covering up’.

But what really struck me was this line:

It is easier to state that there was a Jew who was engaged in minting coins in Khazaria.

Because that fits the ‘pattern’ that I’ve come across again and again and again in my research of Sabbatean-Frankists, of Erev Rav ‘court Jews’ who are engaged in minting coins, international trade – and trying to oppress and subvert the authentic, Torah-true Jewish community from within.

And even today, we see exactly the same thing going on in Ukraine, where all these dodgy, apparently ‘Jewish’ oligarchs are busy acting as middle men for the forces of evil, acting as brokers and contact points for all the dodgy international deals being done to steal Ukraine’s natural resources and use it as a bioweapons testing lab for the US and NATO.

But that doesn’t mean ‘Ukraine is a Jewish state’ – Zelensky, Kolomoisky and Pinchuk notwithstanding.

====

So now, where did this theory of all Ashkenazi Jews being descendants of converted Khazarians come from?

Writer Arthur Koestler called one of his books ‘The Thirteenth Tribe‘, and that’s where he put forward this infamous theory that Ashkenazi Jews descend from converted Khazarians.

Snippet from Wikipedia:

Koestler advances the thesis that Ashkenazi Jews are not descended from the historical Israelites of antiquity, but from Khazars, a Turkic people originating in and populating an empire north of and between the Black Sea and Caspian Sea.

Koestler’s hypothesis is that the Khazars – who converted to Judaism in the 8th century – migrated westwards into current Eastern Europe (primarily Ukraine, Poland, Belarus, Lithuania, Hungary and Germany) in the 12th and 13th centuries when the Khazar Empire was collapsing.

====

Apparently, Koestler believed he would eradicate anti-semitism, if he showed Ashkenazi Jews were actually from the same gene pool as the rest of Eastern Europe, just practising Judaism.

Clearly, he was totally wrong about that, and all this claim did is give anti-semites another stick to beat the real Jews with.

And that was probably the whole point.

====

If you go HERE, you’ll find the family tree for Arthur Koestler on geni.

Screenshot:

====

Hey, would you look at that!

He descends from the Jeiteles family – one of the main ‘Frankist Royalty’ families, connected to the Bondis, Taussigs, Rosenbergs, Brandeis’, Goldschmidts, Mayers, Schiffs and Picks.

Always the same names, always the same people.

====

But now, let’s go back to ‘Bulan-Sabriel’s’ family tree, as I’ve saved the best for last.

(From HERE):

====

What instantly took my eye is how these Khazarian kings –  sons with partial Jewish blood, from their mother Serakh al-Yehudi – started calling themselves ‘HaKohen al-Khazari’.

Say what?!?

All of a sudden, I remembered that long list of Karaite ‘Kahanas’, including the father-in-law of none other than the REMA himself, R‘ Shalom Hakohen Shachna (Shor) of Lublin.

====

According to the ‘Karaite History’ of Allan E. Goldenthal, ‘Kahana’, or ‘Kohen Tzedek’ was historically a Karaite surname.

He himself is ‘Avrom Aryeh-Zuk Kahana’ – Zak, ‘zera kodesh’.

I can’t begin to tell you how many strange things and interesting people are connected to the Zak family tree.

It’s also at the very the heart of all the families connected to Shabtai Zvi, Jacob Frank – and Vilna.

====

Here’s a few relevant snippets – but go and read the posts yourself, because there is way more info there than I can cover here.

From HERE:

In this series of articles, it will also show you how easy it was for family members to transition from Karaite Judaism to Rabbinic Judaism and back again, because even though there was a marked schism, the divide was never so huge that one could not make a leap across the chasm when necessary. 

==

The next set of quote are from HERE (‘The Shalom Shakhna Controversy’):

As for family titles, these would never change. Once a HaCohen Katz, always a HaCohen Katz.

The family titles were cherished, practically held sacred, as the title is passed down from generation to generation as a badge of pride and honour…. ‘HaCohen Katz’ is such a title. It is more than simply a surname. It identified a dynasty and the rabbinical families respected these dynastic titles enough that no one ever tried to purloin or adopt such a title from another family if they were not entitled to it. It would be considered sacrilege to do so….

A member of the HaCohen Katz family suddenly calling himself Kahana, just wouldn’t happen, yet here are the biographers, the genealogists wanting you to believe this is exactly what did happen.

Heralding from the Schorr family, the last name [HaKohen Katz] could be an indication along with Charif or Sharif of the priestly function of preparing and presenting the burnt offering in the Temple.

As a high priestly family, the denotation of their purpose was not unusual, in the same way that other priestly families were denoted for their musical and singing abilities or their capacity to serve in the Temple as scribes.

====

Shalom Shakhna Schorr [REMA’s f-i-l] had been so strict in his interpretation of the law, basing his rulings on religious precepts, that even in Rome they had been paying close attention, adopting many of the same rulings made by this Rabbi from Lublin.

====

[R’ Shalom Hakohen Shakhna Shor] owed his public standing to the most part based on the connections he and his family maintained with the government authorities, including the court of King Sigismund I.

In 1541, Shakhna was officially appointed chief rabbi of Poland by the king as a reward for his collaboration. In this capacity, he mediated between the authorities and the Jewish community, and his appointment was meant to ensure the collection of taxes by any means, even by the power of excommunication that he wielded.

But he also wielded the authority to impose the death penalty, which was far more reason for anyone to pay their taxes than the threat of excommunication. The acceptance of his role meant following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather, both of whom were the tax collectors for the Polish monarchy, ensuring that they shook the pockets of the Jewish community for every kopec owed, for which they were richly rewarded.

His father Yosef also operated a money lending business from which they wielded a tremendous amount of power over the Jewish community due to the personal indebtedness of certain families.

====

 In a description of one of the more severe punishments meted out by its singular judge and jury, being Shalom Shakhna, “a wicked man of evil deeds,” who’s crime appears to be that he was reporting secretly to the Polish government about the Jewish community and its leader, was to have his eyes plucked from his skull and his tongue torn out.

====

OK, what’s going on here?

And how does it connect to Karaites, Sabbatean-Frankists and the ‘Khazarian mafia’?

This is how these dots seem to be connecting up to me, but of course, go do your own research and come to your own (considered, fact-based) conclusions.

  • It seems more and more obvious that at least one branch of the Sadducees (who remember, took over most of the ruling and priestly functions in the Hasmonean Kingdom of Israel, operating at the time of the Second Temple) morphed into what we know as ‘Karaites’.

Remember, ‘Sadducee’ comes from the Hebrew name ‘Tzadukim’.

Snippet from HERE:

The Zadokite priesthood held office over the Temple of Jerusalem since the time of Solomon, although lost during the Babylonian Captivity and reestablished during the Persian Empire, and it is said to have passed to Onias I around the time of Alexander the Great. Antiquites of the Jews says that Onias I received Alexander the Great in Jerusalem…

  • These Sadducee-Karaites dipped in and out of ‘authentic Judaism’ as it suited them.
  • These Sadducee-Karaites (and other Jewish heretics) were very heavily represented in the Kingdom of Khazar.
  • King ‘Bulan-Sabriel”s Jewish wife Serach was very probably a Sadducee-Karaite.
  • Sadducee-Karaite’s don’t stick to halacha – they chop and change things to suit themselves, and their current circumstances.
  • Bulan-Sabriel’s ‘Sadducee-Karaite-Jewish’ sons decide they are going to call themselves ‘HaKohen Al-Kuzari’ – i.e. start identifying themselves as high priests. When you remember that The Zadokite [Sadducee] priesthood held office over the Temple of Jerusalem since the time of Solomon – this starts to make way more sense.
  • The regular Jewish community (‘Rabbinates’) tended to shun the Karaite community, and avoid intermarrying with them, not least because their genealogy, including practising patrilineal descent, makes them ‘genealogically unfit’.

====

Now, let’s drill down to specifics.

In another post about the Karaites of Crimea, Goldenthal says this:

Even in the Sefer Khazarim, which tells the story of Rabbi Isaac of Sangar, the rabbi makes certain that he pays homage to the Priests and Levites, as if they were still performing their services, as if not wishing to offend the King.

The reality may have been that the Priestly functions may have been performed exactly as had been done in the days of the first Temple.

====

This screenshot comes from Allen Goldenthal’s ‘Karaite History’, HERE.

====

Circled at the top is R’ Akiva HaKohen Katz of Salonica.

He’s the ancestor of (Sadducee-Karaite) R’ Shalom HaKohen Shakna Shor, the chief rabbi of Lublin with close connections to the Polish Monarchy, and the REMA’s father-in-law. And also, of R’ Shabtai Ashkenazi Hakohen Katz – the SHACH, who is my candidate for the true identity of false messiah Shabtai Tzvi.

In my old blog, I did a long post about how ‘R’ Akiva HaKohen Katz of Salonica”s family tree was a huge, deliberate mess, and also, about his strange links to ‘Eli HaKohen’, vis:

Speculative Evidence: R’ Akiva HaCohen Katz of Salonika

As it turns out there is a tantalizing factoid in the literature which the current yDNA findings may eventually corroborate. R’ Akiva HaCohen Katz of Salonika (ca. 1360-1400), according to legend and several rabbinical genealogies, is reported to have been a direct descendant Eli the High Priest, a Biblical personage during the time of the Judges and Samuel.

Eli is described in the Bible as a direct patriline descendant of Aharon the Priest via his son Ithamar (the same Ithamar claimed as a Priestly ancestor by the Samaritans).

====

Long story short….I am now coming to the conclusion that there is a direct link between these (Sadducee-Karaite) ‘Hakohen Katzs’ that lead directly to Shabtai Tzvi and the Frankist families, and the (Sadducee-Karaite) fake ‘HaKohen Al-Kuzaris’ of the Khazar empire.

I have a lot more avenues to explore, and a lot more things to try to pin down, to really make that stand up in real time.

But that’s now the conclusion I’m coming to.

====

To put this another way – it’s not so much that the ‘Jewish Rothschilds’ infiltrated into all these Royal Families etc to take them over, but rather, that these ‘fake Jewish’, anti-Torah, anti-‘rabbinic’ Erev Rav Sadducee-Karaites have been trying to take over the real Jewish community from within – for at least the last 2,500 years.

I’m truly starting to think that all the ‘false messiah’ problems we’ve had as a people – starting with the Sadducee-Yoshki himself – come back to these people.

They pull the same trick each time, wheedling up to the non-Jewish royalty to gain power and office within the Jewish community itself, and then abusing that power to enrich themselves and to try and pull the real Jews away from the Torah.

====

Just take a look at the SHOR family – always the SHOR family!

The Sadducee-Karaite R’ Shalom Hakohen Shakna Shor of Lublin – the REMA-s F-I-L- has a great-grandson called Ephraim Zalman SHOR – author of Tevuot SHOR, and brother of Avraham Haim SHOR, ancestor of the Alter Rebbe of Chabad.

Ephraim Zalman’s son is Elisha Shor Wolowski.

He’s the head of the secret Sabbateans who ends up converting out to Catholicism, along with Jacob Frank, together with most of his children. And his daughter, Chaya, is one of the most promiscuous ‘female prophets’ of the Sabbatean-Frankist movement.

Now, go back and read this post, from a few months’ ago:

====

OK, let’s stop there.

Another monster post, with lots more things to try to pin down, not least this split between the Eastern and Western parts of the Roman Empire.

And how the heretic Jews in our community (who really perhaps aren’t even halachic Jews…) are trying to ‘take sides’ in that battle between the chiefs of Esav…

But a lot more pieces are starting to slot into place, finally.

PS: Also go back and read this post, with lots more SHOR connections to the NWO:

Always the same names, always the same people.

UPDATE:

I’m really just adding things here to keep all the information together, going forward.

On this Georgian history website, HERE, I found the following snippets:

In 737, Mervan ibn Muhammad, a famous Arab commander and later caliph, after capturing most of Transcaucasia, moved to Khazaria from two sides: through the Chora (Derbent Gate) and Daryal. He inflicted a crushing defeat on the Khazars, forcing the khagan to temporarily practice Islam

==

[T]he formation of the personality of Leon II was greatly influenced by his Khazar mother, who, unlike her sister Chichak (Irina), most likely professed either the traditional pagan or innovative Jewish religion, which King Obadiah made the state religion of Khazaria in the early 9th century…

…also think about the symbolism of the oldest tier of the 10th century palace in Lykhny, on the northern facade of which there is a cross inscribed in the six-pointed star of David.

==

Some representatives of the Turkic — speaking Jewish nationalities-Karaites and Krymchaks, as well as Iranian-speaking mountain Jews-consider themselves descendants of the Khazars.

==

The question is: what – or who – does that ‘Star of David’ really represent?

Because at this stage, we know it was something that the externally-Jewish, Sabbatean demon-worshipping ‘Baal Shems’ introduced widely to the Jewish community. But only over the last 2-300 years.

====

I also found THIS – about some apparently non-Jewish Turkic ‘Keraites’ in the same region, who may or may not also be part of the mix, here:

The Keraites were one of the five dominant Mongol or Turkic tribal confederations (khanates) in the Altai-Sayan region during the 12th century. They had converted to the Church of the East (Nestorianism) in the early 11th century…

Rashid al-Din, the official historian of the Mongol court in Persia, in his Jami al-Tawarikh states that the Keraites were Christians.

William of Rubruck, who encountered many Nestorians during his stay at Mongke Khan’s court and at Karakorum in 1254–1255, notes that Nestorianism in Mongolia was tainted by shamanism and Manicheism and very confused in terms of liturgy, not following the usual norms of Christian churches elsewhere in the world.

==

We need to take a closer look at ‘Manicheism’, probably.

Maybe, after I actually do a bit of cleaning of Pesach.

The more I look into the history of ‘the Khazars’ the more weird stuff I’m discovering.

***UPDATES***

Just to recap, as part of the ‘conspiracy’ to blame the real Jews for everything that is currently going wrong in the world, and all the New World Order / Great Reset / satanic evil stuff, I’m hearing more and more stuff about ‘the Ashkenazi Jews all descend from the Khazars, and so don’t have ‘Abrahamic DNA”.

And in turn, that links up with another standard conspiracy that ‘the Rothschilds are Khazarian mafia, and they own everything and are responsible for everything.’

As to whether the Rothschilds are really descendants of the ‘Khazars’, it’s still far too early to say.

Personally, I’m still in the middle of trying to figure out who these ‘Khazars’ actually were, historically – and there appears to be a lot of secrets wrapped up with that.

What I can already tell you for sure, tho, is that the Rothschilds are really just ‘obviously Jewish’ bag men for the real evil powers behind the throne, who are actually connected to ‘satanic gnostic xtianity’ – if not rooted in pagan religions that are far older, like the worship of Moloch.

And I can also tell you that the Rothschilds are related by blood to some of our ‘biggest rabbis’ and ‘Jewish leaders’ in both the secular and supposedly frum world.

So if the Rothschilds really are fake-Jewish Khazars…. they have a lot of company.

====

After I wrote the last post, on the hidden links between the Khazar empire and the Karaites, a couple of interesting things happened.

  1. My plumber came to fix a leaking tap, and out of nowhere started telling me about this ‘Karaite friend’ of his, who has apparently been trying to proselytise him, and bring him to ‘Karaite meetings in the Old City’.

I literally couldn’t believe my ears, because Karaite propaganda is still pretending that there are 4 1/2 of these people left, and they aren’t interested in spreading their ‘faith’ to anyone else.

Yeah right!!

I went looking, and here is a video from about 10 years ago of the ‘Karaite Synagogue’ in the Old City, said to be the oldest synagogue in Jerusalem:

====

And then I found a website called ‘Karaite-Korner.org‘, which has a lot more explanation of who the Karaites say they are, what they apparently stand for – and why that’s ‘against’ authentic orthodox Judaism, which holds by the primacy of the Oral Law and the Talmud.

Here’s their intro snippet:

Karaism is the original form of Judaism as prescribed by God in the Torah.

Karaite Judaism rejects later additions to the Tanach (Jewish Bible) such as the Rabbinic Oral Law and places the ultimate responsibility of interpreting the Bible on each individual. Karaism does not reject Biblical interpretation but rather holds every interpretation up to the same objective scrutiny regardless of its source.

====

HERE is where you can read the Karaite ‘Declaration of Faith’.

And HERE is where you can read a whole list of FAQs about the Karaites – as written by a modern Karaite ‘Chacham’, Nechemia Gordon.

Here’s a few that really caught my eye:

Who is a Jew? Matrilineal or Patrilineal?

Most Karaites believe in patrilineal descent, meaning that if your father is Jewish than you are Jewish.

This is based primarily on the fact that all descent in the Bible goes according to the male line. Some Karaites believe that both parents must be Jewish. However, anyone who 1) is circumcised [males only], 2) accepts the God of Israel [YHWH] as their own God, and 3) accepts the People of Israel as their own people is a full-fledged Jew [Israelite], see Exodus 12,43-49 and Ruth 1,16.

==

Do Karaites eat milk and meat together?

Yes. While there is a Biblical prohibition not to boil a young goat or sheep in its mother’s milk, there is no such prohibition against eating milk and meat together.

==

Are Karaites and Sadducees the same thing?

We know very little about the beliefs of the Sadducees. We do know however that like the Karaites they believed only in the authority of the Tanach and rejected the Oral Law.

==

What is the role of women in Karaism?

Women have equal status to men in Karaism.

When the Torah commanded that the entire nation come to hear the Torah read in a public reading on Sukkot every seventh year, it explicitly mentioned that both men and women were required to come and learn the Torah. Women have an equal obligation to keep the commandments and study the Tanach. There are some laws that apply specifically to men (such as circumcision) just as there are some laws that apply specifically to women (such as laws regarding menstruation). 

Women have equal standing and participation in prayer services and as spiritual leaders. In the 10th century, the leader of the prominent and powerful Karaite community of Spain was a woman whom the Karaites referred to as “The Teacher” [al-Mualema].

====

I highly recommend you go read the rest of the FAQs, HERE.

Because what struck me instantly was that these Karaites still hate ‘the rabbis’ and ‘their Talmud’ with a passion; and that Karaite beliefs overlap a lot with Sadduccees, xtians – and perhaps more relevant for our times, ‘Reform Judaism’.

Reform is also really big on patrilineal descent, and on women having an ‘equal role’ in prayer services.

At this stage, I’m increasingly of the view that is not an accident.

====

If you go HERE, you’ll find a page entitled ‘History of Karaism’.

Here’s a few snippets that caught my eye, but please do go and read it yourself, it’s not so long:

Like the Karaites who were to follow them, the Sadducees and the Boethusians continued the tradition originated by Moses (Dt 4,2) of keeping the Torah’s commandments with no addition. 

Ed. note: This appears to confirm some sort of link between the original, heretical Sadducees and Boethusians, and their ‘spiritual descendants’, the Karaites.

[I] n the 8th century a last glimmer of hope appeared in the form of a shrewd leader named Anan ben David.

Anan organized various non-Talmudic groups and lobbied the Caliphate to establish a second Exilarchate for those who refused to live according to the Talmud’s man-made laws. The Muslims granted Anan and his followers the religious freedom to practice Judaism in the way of their ancestors.

Anan himself was not a Karaite… Anan’s followers became known as Ananites and this group continued to exist down until the 10th century.

On the other hand, those Jews who continued to practice the Tanach-based religion of their ancestors became known as Bnei Mikra (“Followers of Scripture”) which was also abbreviated as Karaim (“Scripturalists”), in English “Karaites”.

====

Pay attention to the timing of all this.

The 8th century is exactly when the Khazar king, Sabriel-Bulan, is meant to have decided to become a Jew.

And we know that the Khazar empire was historically full of Jewish Karaites, and also other Jewish ‘refugees’ who had moved there from Persia and Armenia, to ‘escape persecution’.

What we can learn out from this, is that there is a strong possibility that the ‘Jews’ who were trying to get out of Persia and Armenia by moving to Khazar were those who were ‘anti’ the Rabbis, and ‘anti’ the Rabbinic traditions – i.e. a bunch of heretics, at the very least.

And that’s even without mixing in the Jewish-xtian-gnostic groups, the followers of ‘Mani’, and a bunch of others who were literally still worshipping demons….

====

Also pay attention to this whole Karaite idea of Jewish descent being passed on via the man – in total contradiction of halacha.

Personally, this is starting to answer a lot of the questions I’ve been having, over the last two years, about how so many of our supposedly ‘big rabbis’ and their families could continue to claim to be Jews, when the men were obviously marrying out.

This has enormous implications for the whole idea of ‘who is really a Jew’, today.

Also remember that passage from Yevamot 16a (quoted in the last post) about the KARTUYITES / KARAITES being ‘genealogically unfit’ for regular Jews to marry?

Rami bar Yechezkel was referring only to the KARTUYITES, who were ineligible as converts [possibly because they were suspected of being mamzerim…

Again, we are starting to see the contours of something much deeper starting to come into focus.

If Sadducee-Karaites hold that Jewish descent is via the father not the mother… well. You can already see what a mess can develop in a very short amount of time.

====

One last thing, on that topic.

If you go HERE, you’ll find a Jpost article about the Karaites, and how 25,000 currently live in Israel, and how the State of Israel apparently considers them all to be Jewish.

How is that possible, when they practise ‘patrilineal descent’?

Here’s a snippet:

There’s a lot of confusion because of the Karaites in Eastern Europe.

They became ‘cultural Karaites’ and rejected Judaism – and say that they’re not Jews,” explains [Chacham Nechemia] Gordon. The great majority of Karaites come from Egypt, however, and Gordon asserts that “within Judaism, we accept the Karaite approach as opposed to the Orthodox or Conservative or Reform approach. But I must emphasize that we’re first and foremost Jews,” he repeats.

Rabbi David Chayim Chelouche, the chief rabbi of Netanya, agrees. “A Karaite is a Jew,” says Chelouche, who has written a great deal about the Karaites. “We accept them as Jews and every one of them who wishes to come back [to mainstream Judaism] we accept back. (There was once a question about whether Karaites needed to undergo a token circumcision in order to switch to rabbinic Judaism, but the rabbinate agrees today that it is not necessary.)

====

Man, what a mess.

The area those ‘Karaites of Eastern Europe’ were in is, of course, modern day Ukraine (aka ‘Khazaria).

If you go HERE, you’ll find Gordon’s discussion of the role of Karaites in the Holocaust, where he states the following:

Alongside the Karaite Jews there is a second group who use the name “Karaite” or in their own language “Karaylar” (Zajaczkowski, page 11).

These Karaylar-Karaites are an ethnic group originating in Eastern Europe although their exact origins are a topic of much debate. It seems they are in part descendants of Karaite Jews, who left Karaite Judaism in the late 19th or early 20th Century. According to the Karaylar-Karaites themselves, they are descended from Tataric-Turkic tribes and they readily back this up with linguistic and anthropological evidence….

One characteristic of Karaylar-Karaites is that they profess belief in Jesus and Mohammed as prophets.

====

Gordon states that these ‘Karaylar-Karaites’ were living in Crimea / Khazaria.

Again, please go and read the whole discussion about who these ‘Karaites’ living in Eastern Europe before WW2 really were, and what they were really doing.

Because while Nechemia Gordon is making a big deal out of the fact that these so-called ‘Karaylar-Karaites’ can’t really be Jewish, because they believed in Yoshki, we already know from all our Sabbatean-Frankist research that there were a great many closet Frankists and Sabbatean even in the mainstream Jewish communities in these areas that believed in Yoshki, and Shabtai Tzvi, and probably a bunch more false prophets that aren’t even on our radar.

And some of those Crimean ‘Karaites’ even fought with the Wehrmecht and Waffen-SS!

Snippet:

From a letter dated 27 September 1944, from Gerhard Klopfer, Staatssekretär in the Party Chancery, to SS Standartenführer Dr. Karl Brandt, we learn that an estimated 500-600 Crimean Karaites were serving in the Wehrmacht, Waffen-SS, and Tatar Legion! These Karaites most probably served with the 5,000-20,000 Crimean Tatars who served in the six German-officered Tatar battalions.

====

Heretical ‘Jews’ and Nazis on the same side, fighting in Ukraine?

Where have I heard that before?

Lots to unpick here – and for sure, it’s not all going to come clear in this post. So let’s leave the Karaites alone for a bit, and return to the Khazars again.

====

You know what, let’s do the new Khazar information as a separate post, just to stop your brains from exploding.

We’ll rejoin this subject in part 3.

====

UPDATE:

I took a look at Karaite Hakham Nechemia Gordon’s up-to-date blog HERE.

He does a regular show with a xtian named Keith Johnson, called ‘Hebrew Gospel Pearls’.

Many of those episodes are restricted to subscribers, but this one, below, from March 9th, provides quite a lot of grist for the mill that ‘Jesus’ was actually a Karaite forerunner…

And that he was quoted as saying he didn’t want to do away with the ‘Torah’, per se – i.e. the written Torah – but the oral Torah.

This lead to a split in the early church between ‘James brother of Yoshki’, who wanted new xtians to continue keeping all the Torah’s commandments, and to effectively live as Torah Jews who believed that Yoshki was Moshiach, and Paul, who taught the Torah’s written commandments no longer applied.

Again, recall the verse above, from the Gemara:

Remember that passage from Yevamot 16a (quoted in the last post) about the KARTUYITES / KARAITES being ‘genealogically unfit’ for regular Jews to marry?

Rami bar Yechezkel was referring only to the KARTUYITES, who were ineligible as converts [possibly because they were suspected of being mamzerim…

====

All this potentially sheds a lot of light on who is still fighting today against what they call ‘Rabbinic Judaism’ – i.e. Torah-true Judaism that includes obedience to the Oral Torah.

And it also sheds a lot of light on how this faction of what we would call ‘Sadducees’ / heretical Tzadukim morphed into:

  • Early Jewish xtians 1 (who believed Yoshki was Moshiach, and still kept the written Torah but were ‘anti’ the Oral Torah – i.e. Sadducees.)
  • Early Jewish xtians 2 (who still kept the written Torah, were ‘anti’ the Oral Torah, but also believed Yoshki was somehow a human incarnation of God Himself, chas v’shalom).
  • Early non-Jewish xtians 1 (who believed Yoshki was divine, and still kept the written Torah but were ‘anti’ the Rabbinic Oral Torah.)
  • Early non-Jewish xtians 2 (who believed Yoshki was divine, and DIDN’T keep even the writtenTorah.)
  • Sadducees who didn’t believe that Yoshki was divine, or Moshiach (at least, after he died) – but agreed with his anti-Rabbinic Oral Torah stance – and this last group seem to have morphed into the Karaites.

And we still didn’t add into the mix the outright devil-worshipping gnostic-xtian and gnostic-xtian-formerly-Jewish sects yet, there were also on the scene.

But we will, with God’s help.

====

You don’t have to listen yourself to Gordon’s podcast, but if you want to here is the episode:

====

UPDATE 2:

A reader from the Netherlands sent me this:

 I use a lot of the Talmud of Rabbi Steinsaltz Koren Talmud. Here the following comment is placed by him:

Karduyim – קרַדְוּיּיִם : This apparently refers to the inhabitants of areas of northern Iraq, near the source of the Tigris River, the region known primarily as Kurdistan today. It is probable that the Kartuyim are from the same region, albeit from a different area.

Kartuyim are unfit –פסְּיִליֵ קרַתְּויּיֵ : Some commentaries maintain that this quote was habitually cited as an example of those who are rendered unfit on account of their lineage. Others say that Kartuyim is a kind of unclean fowl, and this name was applied to those who came from places that can be described in terms of this kind (Rivan).

====

Again, I’m just putting more of these ‘breadcrumbs’ together, at this stage, and exploring some interesting connections and possibilities.

There are still a lot of gaps that need filling, before anyone can say with any degree of certainty, what is really going on here. But one thing is clear: the history you and I got taught is full of lies and deliberate disinformation.

That’s one thing I’m totally sure about.

====

TBC

You might also like this article:

‘The Khazar Empire’ is slowly creeping into the online  discussions about what is really going on in Ukraine right now.

But as usual, a lot of deliberate disinformation is being jumbled up with some real facts, as the ‘anti-Jewish’ modern secret societies, rooted in the Swiss Knights Templars and the Jesuits, continue to use the real Jews, and the authentic Torah, as their scapegoat for their own brand of satanic / gnostic evil.

If that paragraph already blew you away, the good news is that I’m going to keep this post very simple, and just stick to the subject of identifying the real origins of the Talmud-hating Karaites, and their links to the Khazars.

BH, once more of these subjects are properly birur-ed, it will get way easier to slot them into the bigger picture of ‘real Jewish history’, without getting overwhelmed or lost in too much information. 

Ready?

Let’s begin.

====

EXHIBIT 1: The official history of the Khazar Empire

A few weeks’ ago, a reader sent me the link to a very interesting post on the Mayim Achronim blog, entitled:

The Surprising Story of Russia, Ukraine, and the Jews

It sets out the whole official history of how these ethnically Turkish Khazars – ‘converted’ en masse to Judaism, in the 8th century. Here’s a snippet:

At the turn of the 8th century, a new power arose in the lands between the Black and Caspian Seas.

This power was the Turkic people known as the Khazars. Around 740 CE, King Bulan of the Khazars made a fateful decision to convert to Judaism. Many in his royal family converted with him. The Khazar kingdom continued to spread far and wide, and its coins (bearing the inscription “Moses is the [True] Prophet of God”) have been uncovered by archaeologists as far as England to the west and China to the east….

====

The kingdom of the Khazars was located exactly where Ukraine is today, and the Khazar capital ‘Sambat’ is known today as Kiev.

When some Slavic people settled a new city in Novgorod, the Khazars repeatedly raided it. So in 862 the Slavs called in Rurik, the king of Scandinavia, to come and protect the city. Rurik and his son Oleg (who came to be known as the ‘Rus’) were good military strategists, and by 882, they had even conquered the Khazar capital of Sambat – aka Kiev.

Here’s another snippet of the ‘official history’ of Khazaria, as set out on the Mayim Acharonim blog:

The Rurik Dynasty continued to wage war with the Khazars to the south for decades.

The famed “Schechter Letter”, one of the greatest historical finds for understanding Khazaria, describes the battles fought against the Rus by Khazarian kings and generals with names like Benjamin, Aaron II, and even Pesach! By the end of the 10th century, Khazaria had all but disappeared.

Some have posited that its many Jews fled north and west, giving rise to the Ashkenazi Jewish community (for why this is incorrect, read here).

====

That link leads to another post on the Mayim Achronim website called:

[EXHIBIT 2]:

The Origins of Ashkenazi Jews

There’s a lot to unpack in that article, and I think I will have to come back to it again in a ‘Part II’. But for now, here are the takeaway points:

Historians credit the Khazars with checking the rapid Arab conquest, and preventing a Muslim takeover of Europe from the East. It is said that around 740 CE, King Bulan grew tired of his people’s backwards pagan beliefs and converted to Judaism…

Then came a huge discovery from the Cairo Geniza.

Now known as the Schechter Letter (as it was discovered by Solomon Schechter, 1847-1915), the text is a correspondence between a Khazari Jew and a Sephardi Jew, most likely Hasdai ibn Shaprut (c. 915-970 CE).

The letter includes a brief history of Khazaria, and states that Khazaria’s Jews originally came from Persia and Armenia, from which they had fled persecution.

One of their descendants, named Sabriel, eventually rose to Khazarian nobility, and finally became king. His wife, Serach, convinced him to go public with their Jewish heritage, and they did, inspiring others in the kingdom to convert to their new king’s religion.

The Schechter Letter confirms that the majority of the Jews in Khazaria were not actually Turkic converts but migrants from Persia and Armenia. Shortly after the letter was written, the Khazari Kingdom fell apart in 969 CE.

====

Let’s sum up as we go along, to make this easier to follow.

  • In the 8th century, the kingdom of Khazaria was located in what is modern Ukraine.
  • It was a rich, powerful kingdom with a very wide trading network stretching from Great Britain to China – where Khazarian coins have been found.
  • It’s rumored that in 740 CE, the Khazarian King ‘Bulan’ decided to convert to Judaism, along with much of his nobility. Ethnically, these Khazarians were said to be Turkish.
  • Solomon Shecter found a letter in the Cairo Geniza dating from the 10th century that set out a different explanation for how ‘Khazaria’ became Jewish.
  • That letter stated that Jews from Persia and Armenia escaped to Khazaria, and over time, one of the community named Sabriel became the king of Khazaria.
  • King Sabriel’s wife Serach than convinced him to ‘go public’ with his Jewish faith.
  • The Kingdom of Khazar ended in 969 CE.

====

Why does the history of long-gone ‘Khazar’ really matter?

There’s a long answer to that, and a short answer that we’ll stick to, for the purposes of this particular post.

As the ‘official narrative’ about what is going on in the world, I’m seeing more and more sites and comments saying the following sort of things:

  • The (fake ‘Jewish’) Rothschilds are behind everything (partially true).
  • The State of Israel is 100% owned by the Rothschilds (partially true).
  • The State of Israel is behind everything (not true – but the State of Israel is being used as a convenient scapegoat by the real culprits, i.e. Swiss Templars and Jesuits).
  • The Rothschilds descend from these converted ‘Jewish Khazars‘ (deliberate disinformation – read on.)
  • Ashkenazi Jews are all descended from converted Khazarians, and therefore not ‘ethnically Jewish‘, nor do they have a ‘DNA link’ to the land of Israel. (Sounds like it could be true, but actually is totally false – read on.)
  • The Khazarian nobility were actually worshipping Moloch, practising all sorts of evil black magic, and probably built their massive trade empire at least in part thanks to their practise of kidnapping their Slavic neighbors, and selling them as white slaves. (Amazingly – this is probably true. There is nothing new under the sun.)

====

And now, there is a new calumny being spun against real Jews, off the back of this admixture of truth and lies about what was really going on in Khazar a thousand years ago.

To get a feel for what I’m talking about, take a look at this (speed it up to 1.5 or even 1.75):

DNA Under Siege: Bioweapons Developed in Ukraine Specifically Target Abrahamic Bloodline

It’s the Stew Peters show interviewing ‘Dr Aryiana Love’, who I have been suspicious of for a while, as part of the ‘controlled opposition’ designed to keep blaming Israel and Jews, for the sins of the satanic-gnostic ‘xtians’ who are really behind all this.

Let’s keep piecing all this together.

====

EXHIBIT 3: SABIANS AND THEIR CONNECTIONS TO THE KNIGHTS TEMPLAR IN ERETZ ISRAEL

There is evidence that the first Templars in the Middle East – a very small, elite group of nine wealthy knights – went to the Sabians in Harran before they did anything else, to try to learn more of their ‘occult’ ancient Egyptian knowledge, on the direct orders of Bernard of Clairveaux.

Snippet from Wikipedia:

The Sabians were identified by early writers with the ancient Jewish Christian group the Elcesaites, and with gnostic groups such as the Hermeticists and the Manichaens… [T]hey appear to have gravitated around the original pro-Jewish Hanputa of the Elcesaites, from which the prophet Mani seceded. These Hanip Sabians are later identified as the pro-Torah Sampsaeans.

====

(Stay with me, here, I will connect all this back to the Khazarians – and to the Karaites – shortly.)

EXHIBIT 4: JEWISH-CHRISTIAN GROUPS WITH A SATANIC BENT, LOCATED IN PERSIA

Let’s unpack that Wikipedia snippet, above, to understand a bit more who we are dealing with.

THE ELCESAITES

were an early Jewish-Christian group who stayed much closer to Torah Judaism, and therefore Torah morality, but who still had heretical writings and rejected the role of Judaism’s prophets.

(They are very possibly connected to the Karaites. More on this shortly.)

==

MANICHAEISM

The ‘prophet’ Mani grew up with his Jewish-Christian ‘Elcesaite’ parents in the part of Persia that is now known as Iran, before forming a breakaway group.

PAY ATTENTION, THAT THIS IS EXACTLY THE SAME AREA WHERE THE ‘JEWISH KHAZAR KING’ SABRIEL, AND THE OTHER ‘JEWISH REFUGEES’ ARE MEANT TO HAVE COME FROM.

Mani’s new religion, Manichaeism, took off like a rocket, and for a few centuries before Islam, it was the biggest rival religion to Roman Catholicism in the world.

====

This Jewish-xtian prophet Mani taught a creed that sounds almost exactly the same as what became satanic Sabbateanism (based on satanic xtian-gnosticism.)

Snippet from Wikipedia:

Manichaeism taught an elaborate dualistic cosmology describing the struggle between a good, spiritual world of light, and an evil, material world of darkness.

Through an ongoing process that takes place in human history, light is gradually removed from the world of matter and returned to the world of light, whence it came. Its beliefs were based on local Mesopotamian religious movements and Gnosticism.

====

Manicheism taught that ‘Mani’ was the final prophet after:

  • The Persian idol worshiper Zoroaster;
  • The Far-Eastern idol worshiper (if he even existed….) Gautama Buddha, and finally,
  • The formerly Jewish heretic who went to Egypt to learn black magic, before starting his own ‘anti-Talmudic’ religion, Jesus. 

====

Another snippet from Wikipedia:

Manichaeism was quickly successful and spread far through the Aramaic-speaking regions.

It thrived between the third and seventh centuries, and at its height was one of the most widespread religions in the world. Manichaean churches and scriptures existed as far east as China and as far west as the Roman Empire.

It was briefly the main rival to Christianity before the spread of Islam in the competition to replace classical paganism.

====

It seems at least possible that the real ‘religion’ of the rulers of Khazar, who had Jewish roots, was actually the same devil-worshipping religion of the Sabians, that had a ‘Jewish-gnostic-xtian’ fig life covering it’s darker side.

Remember, the coins of the Khazar empire were found in the same places where these ‘Manichean churches and scriptures’ were located – places like China and the British Isles.

And the Khazarian rulers came from Persia – exactly the same place where the Jewish-xtian Elcesaites were located, and then later the followers of the Jewish-xtian Prophet Mani – who basically taught a doctrine of ‘redemption through sin’, i.e. removing all the spiritual light from the world to hasten ‘the end’.

That doctrine then showed up again a few centuries later, as the key plank of Shabtai Tzvi, and then the Frankists.

And as we know, the Rothschilds were Frankists, whatever else they were.

And as we know, the Knights Templars were also very interested in the occult knowledge of the Sabians.

There’s more.

====

EXHIBIT 5: HISTORY OF THE KARAITE JEWS

The last two weeks, I’ve been reading a book that was published in 1870 by a xtian scholar named William Harris Rule, called ‘History of the Karaite Jews’.

It’s pretty dry… but I learned some very interesting things. I will sum up the main points as bullets, to make this post easier to read, but I may well expand on some of this information in future posts.

That book states that:

  • The Karaite Jews came into being in the time of Shimon Ben Shetach.
  • They were ‘students of Shammai’, under someone called ‘Ben Tabbai’ – who was meant to an opponent of Shimon Ben Shetach.
  • These Karaites totally rejected the Talmud (I’ll quote from their own writings below.)
  • Torah Jews frequently claimed that the Karaites descended from the Sadducees (Tzadukim) heretics.
  • They had close connections with the kingdom of the Khazars.
  • William Harris Rule frequently comments on the fact that there is a huge amount of overlap between the beliefs of the Karaites, and xtian beliefs.

====

Here’s a snippet from some of the early Karaite writings against the Talmud, promulgated during the reign of the Roman Emperor Justinian, in 529 CE (pg 78, History of the Jews):

“[W]e utterly prohibit, as it neither agrees with the Holy Scripture, nor was it handed down by the Prophets from above, but is the invention of men who speak from the earth only, and have not one thing that is divine in them. Therefore, let them read only the words that are sacred, opening the sacred books themselves, and not concealing what is said in them, nor bringing in vain words that were written elsewhere” – written in Babylonian manuscripts – “contrived for the purpose of setting aside the plainer words which they contain.”

====

Just like the xtians, the Karaites / Sadducees / Elcesaites-Manichean Jewish-Gnostic xtians / devil-worshipping Sabians all hate the Gemara with a vengeance.

Pay attention to this. It comes up a lot.

====

On page 79, Rule says this:

“[T]he name of Karaite does not yet occur in history, but first comes to view about the middle of the eighth century, in connection with the Chozars, a rude but powerful nation north of the Caucasus, among whom the Karaite Jews must have been for a long time well known.”

This is where I really started to sit up.

Those ‘Chozars’ and the Khazars we’ve been discussing here, and Rule is telling us that the Jews that were located in that region were actually ‘Karaite Jews’.

Compare and contrast this with what we learned from the ‘Shechter Letter’ from the Cairo Geniza, that introduced us to the Jews from Persia and Armenia who escaped to Khazaria, at exactly this time, where one of their number, Sabriel, became the king of Khazaria.

====

Rule then quotes a Russian historian called Karamsin, who describes how these ‘Chozars’ “have possessions on the Sea of Azof…”

This is the same ‘Azof’ that the neo-Nazi, Jewish-oligarch funded ‘Azov Battalion’ is named for.

Rule continues to quote Karamsin (pg 80) saying:

“Their government was mild and under it persons of every religion enjoyed perfect freedom. Their chief settlement lay north-west of the Caspian Sea, which was called the Sea of Chozar.”

This is the Donbass region at the heart of the current war between Ukraine and Russia. 

According to Rule, the Khazars were finally kicked out of the region in 945 CE, by King Sviatoslaf, “and their name, otherwise almost forgotten, was preserved in the archives of the Muscovite.”

The war in Ukraine has some very deep, very hidden, historical roots.

====

In the meantime, CO-INC-IDEN-TALLY, the main stronghold of the Karaites at this time is in the Crimea – i.e the exact same area.

It’s the city of ‘Djufut Kale’ in Crimea, where the Karaite gravestones go back at least as early as the 6th century, and possibly even back to 330 CE – the exact same time that the Jewish-gnostic-xtian-Persian Elecaites and Manicheans were starting to spread out in the region.

You can see the Wikipedia page for that city HERE – and let me quote more of the deliberate historical disinformation you’ll find under the title ‘Legends’ there:

Another legend, fostered by the Karaites to show the antiquity of their sect, says that Karaites were brought there from Persia at the time of the first Exile.

The early settlers of the city exercised great influence upon their neighbors, the Khazars.

The ḥakam Abraham Firkovich, who was very skilful in falsifying epitaphs and manuscripts, pretended to have unearthed at the cemetery of Chufut-Kale tombstones dating from the year 6 of the common era, and to have discovered the tomb of Sangari, which is still shown by the Karaites.

According to Harkavy, however, no epitaph earlier than 1203 can be seen at the cemetery of Chufut-Kale, called “Vale of Jehoshaphat”; and the tombs do not belong to Karaites, but to the old Rabbinite settlers called Krymchaks.

====

(The Krymchaks are also interesting… but let’s stay focussed. I’ll probably come back to the Krymchaks another time.)

====

I’ll bring two more bits of information, then I’ll sum it up and call it a day.

EXHIBIT 6: ‘KARAITES’ IN THE GEMARA

While I was in the middle of reading Rule’s book, above, one of my readers sent me an email about finding the reference ‘Bchor Satan’ in the Gemara.

If you remember, ‘Bchor Satan‘ was the name of R Marvin Antelmann’s book exposing how the (not-so) secret Sabbatean was excommunicated for advocating adultery, incest, pedophilia, and fathering a child with his own daughter, amongst other things.

(Honestly, a lot of other things…. You can read more about that HERE, HERE and HERE.)

My correspondent had just come across that phrase in the Gemara, in Tractate Yevamot 16a, and told me to go look it up.

I did.

And that’s where I found a reference to a group of people called the ‘Karduyites’ or alternatively, ‘KARTUYITES’.

====

Here’s the snippet, but please go read the whole thing yourself, for more context:

The third ruling of Chaggai the prophet is discussed: And we may accept converts from the Karduyites and the Tarmodites.

The Gemara questions this ruling:

Is this indeed so? But Rami Bar Yehezkel has taught the following Baraisa: We may not accept converts from the Karduyites.

The Gemara answers:

Rav Ashi said: The word KARTUYITES (and not Karduyites) is what was stated by Rami bar Yechezkel.

Support for this is stated:

This accords with that which people say, ‘Kartuyites are genealogically unfit’.

====

Artscroll Notes 15 and 19 explain what’s going on here.

Note 15 states:

The Karduyites and Tarmodites were heathen peoples, but they were alleged to include descendants from Jewish women who had married gentile men.

The child of a union between a Jewish woman and a gentile man is Jewish; there is a question, however, whether he is a regular Jew or a mamzer. According to the view that he is amamzer, the Karduyites and Tarmodites should be suspected of being mamzerim.

If so, they could not be accepted as converts [for although mamzerim are Jewish, it is unwise to accept them as ‘converts’, lest they marry regular Jews and cause a proliferation of mamzerim in the main community (see Rashi’s commentary to 17a on the words beginning ‘yoma teva’.]

==

Note 19 states:

Rami bar Yechezkel was referring only to the KARTUYITES, who were ineligible as converts [possibly because they were suspected of being mamzerim, (see Note 15.)

Note 20 states:

The word passulim (‘unfit’) for marriage denotes mamzerim and similarly disqualified persons, as opposed to gentiles, who upon conversion are able to marry regular Jews.

====

The similarity between the word KARTUYITES and KARAITES is very striking.

And I think it’s another hint to who these ‘Karaites’ really were, and just why the hated the  ‘Rabbinates’ and their ‘Talmud’ so much – that said explicitly that regular Jews shouldn’t marry them, as they were ‘genealogically unfit’ for marriage, because they were suspected of being mamzers.

It’s probably a good place to add here that Yoshki himself would thus be considered to be a mamzer, given that the Talmud states his father was a gentile Roman soldier, and his mother Miriam (aka ‘the Virgin Mary’) was a prostitute….

And of course, this is one of the passages that the Jesuits and xtians – together with Jonathan Eybshutz, in Prague – historically tried to censure out of the Talmud.

So many ends start to tie themselves up, when the real information comes into view.

EXHIBIT 7: THE KARAITE LINKS TO JACOB FRANK, AND THE SHOR FAMILY

In all the research I was doing about Jacob Frank, and the weird links between so many of our ‘leaders’ and the Karaite rabbis and communities, that had strongholds throughout Podolia (know modern Ukraine), there were a few towns that kept coming up as strong ‘Karaite Jewish’ communities.

They include:

  • Brody;
  • Lutzk;
  • Lublin;
  • Troki – very close to Vilna

This is a snippet from a post from the old site, where I tripped over the real family tree of false messiah of Jacob Frank, when I was trying to track down more info about Rabbi Shalom Shachne Shor, the Karaite father-in-law of the REMA and chief rabbi of Lublin.

I tripped over THIS genealogy site, from Holland, while I was trying to track down more info about Shalom Shachne Shor.

It’s the family tree for one ‘Jacob Lob Benjamin Frankel’ (d 1791).

I am 99.9% sure he is the real Jacob Frank. Finally.

His father is Judah Leib Frankel (tick…), his mother is an ‘unnamed’ daughter of R’ Yaakov Shor, who descends from the Shor family via Shalom Shachne Shor (and is probably a ‘secret’ Karaite. He’s the ABD of Lutzk, which you’ll recall from above is a known Karaite stronghold, as is Brody). These links have been totally scrubbed on geni, and the mythical ‘BABAD’ family have been introduced instead:

His grandfather’s brother was the infamous Elisha Shor (Wolowsky), the ‘leader’ of the secret Sabbatians in the Jewish community.

On his maternal grandmother’s side, Jacob Frank(el) descends from the Isserles clan, and is 6 generations away from the REMA.

There is a lot more to unpick here, to be sure.

But this post is plenty long enough already.

OK, let’s sum up the main points:

  • In the 8th century, the kingdom of Khazaria was located in what is modern Ukraine.
  • It was a rich, powerful kingdom with a very wide trading network stretching from Great Britain to China – where Khazarian coins have been found.
  • It’s rumored that in 740 CE, the Khazarian King ‘Bulan’ decided to convert to Judaism, along with much of his nobility. Ethnically, these Khazarians were said to be Turkish.
  • Solomon (Shneor Zalman) Shecter found a letter in the Cairo Geniza dating from the 10th century that set out a different explanation for how ‘Khazaria’ became Jewish.
  • That letter stated that Jews from Persia and Armenia escaped to Khazaria, and over time, one of the community named Sabriel became the king of Khazaria.
  • King Sabriel’s wife Serach than convinced him to ‘go public’ with his Jewish faith.
  • The Kingdom of Khazar ended in 969 CE.
  • The Sabians (xtian-gnostic-satanists) were directly connected to the Knights Templar, and gave them ‘occult knowledge’.
  • The Sabians may have been connected to Manicheasm, another Jewish-gnostic-satanist sect from Persia that spread throughout the near and Far East, and also throughout the Roman Empire before the 8th century.
  • It’s at least possible that the ‘mysterious Jews’ who settled in Khazar and became its rulers were practising some form of Jewish-gnostic-satanist ‘Manicheasm’.
  • The ‘Karaites’ also had a strong presence in Crimea and Khazar at this point, and strong connections to the Khazar kingdom.
  • The Karaites also hated the Talmud and ‘rabbinic Jews‘ with a vengeance, and had a belief system that overlapped greatly with christianity.
  • In Yevamot 16a, we find a discussion of the ‘KARTUYITES’ – suspected mamzers who the Sages suggest are unfit to marry into the wider Jewish community. There is strong similarity between the words ‘KARTUYITES’ and ‘KARAITES’.
  • Yoshki sounds very much like a proto-Karaite, with his pronouncements against the ‘corrupt rabbis’ and insistence on the Old Testament to be read without any connection to the oral law.
  • Yoshki himself fits the description of a  ‘Kartuyite’ – i.e. a person with a non-Jewish father who is suspected of being a mamzer.
  • There were many Karaite strongholds in Podolia (Ukraine) and Crimea, including Lublin and Djufut Kale in Crimea.
  • Jacob Frank, the false messiah, descends from the Shor family of Karaites – and both he and the Sabbeteans before him taught a doctrine very similar to that of the Jewish-gnostic-satanic prophet Mani.

UPDATE:

According to the author of the Seder HaDorot, Rabbi Yechiel Halperin, the Kuzari was apparently written by R’ Yitzhak Almangari.

He writes:

“I saw in the Sefer HaEmunos that the episode concerning the Khazar king and the Chacham is authentic, and that the Chacham’s name was R’ Yitzhak Almangari.

The aforementioned king was converted by R’ Almangeri some 400 years ago before Yehuda HaLevi. The previously mentioned Rabbi recorded the entire episode in the Khazar language; R’ Yehudah HaLevi transcribed it into Arabic and then R’ Shmuel ibn Tibbon translated it into Hebrew.”

===

Interestingly, R’ Yitzhak Almangari was buried in the Karaite cemetery in Crimea (see page 83 of The History of the Jews).

Which suggests that the Kuzari was a Karaite!

If it even happened at all, and was not just a ‘cover story’ for this real sect of Manichean Jewish-gnostics from Persia, who had connections with the gnostic-satanist Sabians, and apparently became the rulers of Khazar in the 9th century.

Ad kan!

Again, I’m just putting the info out there, please feel free to help fill in more gaps, if you have additional information and insight.

But what’s clear is that the real story of the roots of the war in the Ukraine – and it’s implications for real Jews and Eretz Yisrael – is still to be told.

So stay tuned.
