David Duke Downplays Jewish-Khazar Connection

The Khazar-Jewish connection
is too important to be dismissed.

Common sense tells us that five million Jews could not appear in Poland/ Russia
after the decline of the Khazarian empire in the Tenth Century unless they were Khazars.

by Henry Makow Ph.D.

We owe David Duke a debt of gratitude for continuing to sound the alarm about Jewish Supremacism. But lately Duke has made statements that undermine our cause. Recently, I chided him for calling The Protocols of Zion a "work of imagination" like George Orwell's 1984. The protocols are genuine.

This was the second of two missteps. In April, Duke wrote a long article,"Rethinking the Khazar Theory" that rejects the widely held view that the Jews descend from the Khazars.  He cites numerous genetic studies that link modern Jews to the Hebrews; compares their appearance; and reminds us of the continuity of Jewish warlike and predatory behavior.

This article had Duke's supporters scratching their heads because it seems to support Zionist claims to Palestine. Not so, says Duke.

"No matter what the case, there is no moral justification for the Jewish terrorist creation of Israel.  It is a crime against humanity to drive hundreds of thousands of men, women and children from their land and homes, terrorize them and murder thousands, just because of a claim that one's distant ancestors supposedly lived there millennia ago. It this "logic" is carried through to its conclusion, then it would be "justified" to drive from their homes 99.9 percent of the people alive on planet Earth--because there is hardly a region on earth that has not been subjected to invasions or migrations throughout history."

duke-on-video.pngSo why does the Khazar theory bother him? He believes that somehow the Khazar theory was constructed by "Communist Jews" to cover up the fact that Jews are a race. Duke writes:

How convenient it is to suggest that Jews are not a race, not a related people that gives them a unity and strength in conflict with other peoples.
One cannot explain the power of Zionism unless one understands Jewish tribalism. Jewish tribalism (racism) and favoritism and preference for fellow Jews combined with discrimination against non-Jews ultimately enables them to take over almost any institution. Without Jewish racism, Zionism could not flourish, for that is what gives the Jewish extremists its enormous economic, media and political influence.

"This is a Jewish Supremacist tactic: They disguise Jewish racism through religious dogma, rather than admitting ethnic nationalism.
Their psychology in saying the Jews are not a race goes like this: "How can the Jews be racists if they are not a race?"

This begs the question, why can't  Khazars be a race? Why can't Jews descend from Khazars (Turkish Mongols) and follow a racist agenda? If they bought the "Jewish" franchise by converting to Judaism, they regarded themselves as "God's Chosen People."  The Jews are a self-created, reality-creating people. They are the "Jewish" race of Khazars. ( While Jews exhibit many racial characteristics, I still believe that Jews are primarily defined by Cabalist Judaism, which is a satanic cult. Jews are as much a victim of Cabalist Judaism as non-Jews.)


Duke is mistaken to downplay the Khazar theory. The New World Order is a recrudescence of Khazar imperialism. The Bolshevik Revolution was payback for the defeat of the Khazars by the Russians in the Tenth Century. For every genealogical study that says Jews descend from Hebrews, there is another that says they are Khazars. Common sense tells us that five million Jews could not appear in Poland/ Russia after the defeat of the Khazarian empire in the Tenth Century unless they were Khazars.

Jews have long acknowledged that 95% of today's Jews descend from Khazars. The Jewish Encyclopedia for 1925 writes that the "Khazars are a people of Turkish origin whose life and history are interwoven with the very beginning of the Jews of Russia."

Abraham Poliak, Professor of Medieval Jewish History at Tel Aviv University writes, the descendents of Khazars "constitute now the large majority of world Jewry."  (Khazaria-The History of a Jewish Kingdom in Europe, 1951)

According to to the American Peoples's Encyclopedia (1964), "In the year 740 AD, the Khazars were officially converted to Judaism. A century later they were cursed by the incoming Slavic-speaking people and were scattered over central Europe where they were known as Jews." (15, p. 292)
The Encyclopedia Americana (1985) states: "The Khazars are believed to be the ancestors of of most Russian and Eastern European Jews."

These Khazar Jews were known as Ashkenazi and they make up over 90% of the Jewish population, not just 60% as David Duke says in his article.

Valdas Anelauskas writes: "The Khazars' and their modern day descendents claim to being Jews is strictly religious." 

He says these Jews flourished in Poland, Lithuania and Ukraine throughout the medieval and modern periods. They administered feudal oppression for the aristocracy and thus earned the enmity of the peasants. They monopolized the alcohol, timber, textile, fur and luxury trades, and competed with their hosts for political control.  Jews were distinguished by their black coats and side-locks, and "their nervous gestures, continually emphasizing the spoken word, and their characteristic feverish haste."  The Yiddish language was adapted from constant contact with German traders.  (Russia and Zionism, Lecture Two.)

The tendency to "continually emphasize the spoken word" struck a chord with me, a Khazar Jew. Jews are very verbal. Law comes naturally because the spoken word is a contract. But this tendency has severe limitations. Language is only a part of communication and lends itself to deception. In terms of true understanding, words are superficial.


David Duke's motivation for arguing that Jews do not descend from the Khazars is gratuitous. The Jews are as much a race as Khazars as they would be as Biblical Hebrews.
His dismissal of the Khazar connection is hasty, irresponsible and makes no sense.

The Jewish New World Order is a recrudescence of Khazar imperialism. As Anelasukas writes, Jews view Russia as "the force which caused the ancient so-called empire of the Jews, the Khazar empire to collapse. Having once dominated much of what is present-day Russia, the Khazar Jews still want to reestablish that domination-- and for a millennium they have been continually trying to do just that."

First Comment from Polish Blogger ZZ:

You are correct on the question. Duke is a thorough researcher and really brave man. We all owe him our deepest respect for his courage, straighforwardness and humble simplicity of his standpoint. He is a real, neat and gentle person, real deal gentile.

As you can guess I can pretty well "read" the mind of the Khazar, having many friends between them. In fact, polish political, scientific and juridical systems are simply so thoroughly infiltrated, that Jerusalem is a natural second home or standard refuge, after abrupt career ending.

LloydBlankfeinBigSmile.jpgYou are correct in your observations, regarding Khazar. They are in fact central to modern Judaism, giving off such satanic spawn as Lubavitschers, Sabbateans and Frankists. They all come from Khazaria! Is it a coincidence? No way. Khazars created modern Judaism and Zionism specifically.

Take a look at Lloyd Blankfein, for example. I do not need more than a look to go into winning wager with you over his ancestry. They come from Poland. Wanna bet? Take famous Rob All Jon Corzine. I guess his familial name is Korzen, from Poland. Or current FED president Janet Yellen. Guess what, she is from Poland and the original name was... Jelen [Hirsch in yiddish]. It is in the face and in the name, if you can read the signs. It is obvious to me. So I do not need Dr. Duke to tell me Khazars are not a race. They obviously are. I know it for a fact of life. He can disagree with the facts and ignore them, although they won't ignore him and come back at him - and with a vengeance in this case.

What a fine and needed article. I like Henry's assessment that Duke's position is "puzzling." It flies directly in the face of evidence Texe Marrs presented recently in his book, "DNA Science and Jewish Bloodline." How can that not be

Historian Alfred Lilienthal, who first raised my attentions about the evils of Zionism had this to say, supporting findings of Arthur Koestler's "The
Thirteenth Tribe":

"The Khazar's adoption of Judaism (740 AD) and that they are the lineal ancestors of Eastern European Jewry is historical fact"

"Western European Jews came from Eastern Europe, most of them also are not Semitic Jews. Thus maintains Koestler (The Thirteenth Tribe 1976) the veins of 45 percent of Israelis, (save only the Arab and Sephardic,) plus a big
majority of the Jews around the world, are utterly vacant of corpuscular links
to the tribe of Moses and Solomon. This nullifies Zionism's strongest claim to Palestine..."
"...a most ingenious paradox: In anthropological fact, may Christians have much more Hebrew- Israelite blood in their veins than most of their Jewish neighbors." --What Price Israel? and The Zionist Connection

Joe said (June 19, 2014):

In essence, the true Jews are those who have faith and follow their true Messiah (Jesus Christ) and the remainder of Judaites who did not follow Christ were decimated in the Romans conquered Jerusalem in 70 AD. The Kazars are the remainders of the Asiatic and Mongolian tribes who adopted Judaism (which is not a Godly religion) but is a contrived, so-called "Holy" tradition, inculcated by the Talmud, created by Pharisaical Rabbinics who believe God works for them, and are the demonic forces behind the Rothschilds, whose sole purpose for creating Zionism was truly not for religious purposes but for mega finance and power through their creation of the New World Order!

Bonnie said (June 18, 2014):

There is one other explanation as to why these studies keep saying that the Khazars are Jews just as often as not... a fellow by the name of E. Raymond Capt wrote a book entitled Missing Links Discovered in Assyrian Tablets that claims the Assyrians changed the name of the Israelites (Northern Kingdom) to Scythians in order to change their very identity. These folks were transplanted to the region of the Caucus mountains - the very same region that would later become known as Khazaria. Therefore, the Khazars would be literal descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (but not necessarily descendants of the tribe of Judah.)

Bondservant of Yeshua the Messiah

CF said (June 18, 2014):

In Judaism, God is so beyond human understanding, that He is considered «unknowable.» Only the prophets and great sages of history, chosen by God, could have any real relation/communication with the Creator. Therefore, the only focus left, for «Non-Prophet» Jews, was/is one centered on God's laws.

Through centuries of interpretations and re-interpretations, laws were defined and redefined, until debating/arguing all the various details became a way of life. This left Judaism with a narrowed focus on the material world.

Most were are closed off to the mystical side. This, in turn, left a growing thirst for what was missing; the mystic, the transcendental. Ultimately, that growing spiritual need dovetailed with long preserved, ancient mystical/magic systems (Egyptian and Babylonian).

From the beginning, Hebrew tribes were an eclectic lot. Even today, certain ultra-orthodox Jews STILL perform a ritual which can only be described as Sun worship. Let's face it, historically, we see only the tip of the iceberg; further complicated by post-modern science, which is a changeable as the fashion industry.

The Zoharic/Talmudic movement «blossomed» in the region originally known as the Khazar Kingdom. Trade routes, coming from what was Babylon - connecting to that Kingdom, may have something to do with that.

Are Khazar Jews a race? Sure; one that - for millennia - screwed around (literally) with their German and Slavic neighbors. Are Eastern Mediterranean Jews a race? Sure; descendants of early Hebrew tribes who eventually were either forced to convert to other faiths (often practising Judaism in secret), or to hit the road.

Conclusion? Jewish history is more complicated than most. It is unlikely we will ever know «the whole story.» Aside from getting DNA results from every person on the planet, what CAN we really, truly know?

Words can inspire, or incite, but words are just the beginning. It is only by a person's/group's actions (and their results) that reasonable determinations can be made. «Judge the tree by its fruit.»

Linda said (June 18, 2014):

Again, you have established valuable facts of matter and won valuable points in a discussion where the stakes are growing every day.

The Great Synagogue of Mulheim in Amsterdam moved The Crown (of Jewry) to the British Isles after Cromwell's revolution (which they financed). They set up the tribal gods of the Ashkhenaz in The City (within London).

Today these statues are displayed in the Guildhall of The City.

The sq mi of The City (within London) was to be the new headquarters from which they would command the British imperialism of their new conquered and forged united kingdom.

The British monarch beginning with the 'restoration' under Charles II (transitional) was only ever senior management and figurehead. From the 'Glorious Revolution' would follow the War of the Three Kingdoms when the elders of the Great Synagogue of Mulheim deployed their agent Wiliam of Orange to settle Cromwell's debt over three nations (collateral on their loans). The Bank of England was set up to monetize that debt and in the War of the Three Kingdoms it was thrown down over Ireland, Scotland and Britain. With the Battle of Culloden in 1746, it was over Ireland was completely defeated, the Commons were closed and the British peasantry was exiled to the industrial slums, the Highlands were cleared - that is ethnically cleansed with burning, plunder and the transport of surviving clans to the great penal colonies of the Empire.

In his work, The Nameless War, Capt Archibald Maule Ramsay agrees with you that Hitler was an agent of The Crown which is the the crown of Jewry hq'd on the sq mi of The City in London since the time of the Glorious Revolution.

For the nations like Canada, Australia and the US (composed of peoples with diverse ethnic and cultural legacies) the only hope is to get the facts straight and to focus on Judeo-Masonry as the engine of world empire. The ideals of project America, for example, depends upon the idea that diverse populations can live together under a geopolitical order of representative government. It also depends upon separating the respective populations from agendas of a very select and elite bloodline group which cloaks itself in an ethnic population and instrumentalizes secret societies, religious institutions (like the Catholic Church) and subverted nations.

'Jewish exceptionalism and dominance of all Western social institutions', 'British imperialism', 'Catholic liberalism', 'American militarism and terrorist wars' - are all driven by this elite group - the Elders of Zion. Even their banking cartel is an instrument (a hell of an instrument) - but still just a tool.

Tony B said (June 17, 2014):

I have been fighting this "Jews are a race" almost from first learning of the protocols over fifty years ago. Because, unfortunately, most of those aware of the "Jewish question" believe this nonsense.

It was Elizabeth Dilling - or possibly Lyril Van Hyning - who, many years ago, published a paper proving that there are Jews of all races. Included were photographs of Asiatic Jews, African Jews, blond, blue-eyed Jews, etc. plus photos of synagogues all over the world used by local Jews of all races, to the obvious conclusion that Judaism is not racial. I, myself, was invited by a Jewish friend (who always introduced me to others as an antisemite) to "come over to the winning side" by which he obviously meant to become a Jew. He didn't expect me to change my race.

Pequita de Shismareff and Lady Queenborough, in their "Occult Theocrasy," open their chapter on Judaism with the following sentence:

"Judaism has been described by Moses Mendelssohn, a learned Jew, in this way: - 'Judaism is not a religion but a Law religionized.'"

Thus, say such as Duke illogically, Judaism must be racial because it's not a religion. They completely miss the "law religionized idea."

Just a bit further on in the chapter the researchers write:

"Judaism would be best described as a rite or compendium of rites . . ."

Obviously much closer to a religion than to race.

Of course these rites are listed and described in the Babylonian Talmud, known by many as the devil's book, from which comes, among other nefarious concepts, the deadly philosophy of "exceptionalism" now prevalent in the highest places in American government and "fundamentalist" churchianity as well as in Israel, where one would expect it.

Of course, masonry was created to establish many of those rites among the goyim.

Apparently the compendium of rites disease is now very catching. You, Henry, usually describe this expanding disease as the Illuminati. Or satanism. Who would honestly believe that satanism is racial?



Basically I was reacting to Duke's nutty notion that Jews can't be a race if descended from Khazars. Still believe Judaism is a satanic cult but there is obviously a strong racial element.
Israel has race laws.


Chuck said (June 17, 2014):

FYI Duke is a govt agent recruited after faltering in his political career in Louisiana. He is the second recent and similar 'anti-semite' to attack and attempt to undermine the Khazar claims. The other is Kevin MacDonald.

Thanks Chuck

I don't think Duke and MacDonald are government agents. I do not question the integrity of people I happen to disagree with, unless it is Jeff Rense.


Kristine said (June 17, 2014):

Hi Henry, you said: “In terms of true understanding, words are superficial.”

I think you are wrong. As you said a sentence before that, “the spoken word IS a contract”, which is meaningful. Words become “superficial” when we do not follow up speech with congruent actions.

The whole thing about Jews and their “law” is that there is only ONE law and that is Godś Law. The Jew knows this and has set up his law to reside astride Godś Law and truth. Jewish law has only to do with what they consider “legal”, which may be interpreted in a myriad of different ways. And here we have the dichotomy again – truth/lie, black/white, etc. etc.

The word Bar means Baal and courtrooms are his temple.

The Jew has created legalese for his slaves and not himself. Under Satan's rule the Jew can do whatever he wants and is not under the law.
