Review of Arthur Koestler's Book The Thirteenth Tribe by Grace Halsell
The Jews of Khazaria by Kevin Alan Brook A Resource for Turkic and Jewish History in Russia and Ukraine



The Thirteenth Tribe is a book that attempts to explain the origins of Eastern Europe's Jewish population,largely decimated by the Nazi onslaught during the Second World War. Koestler shows through extensive research, how a trading empire was set up by a tribe we know as the Khazars between the expanding power blocs of Christianity and Islam; how the people were converted to Judaism by their king as a way of standing apart from both, and how the people and their wealth were dispersed through the countries of Eastern Europe after the collapse of the Khazar Empire.

It is a controversial history; because it challenges both the assumptions of Nazi philosophy and Zionism that the European Jews were racially different from the populations of the countries in which they later settled.

Koestler, as a Hungarian Jew himself, was particularly interested in the major part the Khazars played in the founding of the Hungarian nation; a fact which later led to the tragedy of 1944, when the Nazis "exterminated over half-a -million Hungarian Jews", who were virtually indistinguishable from their Christian neighbours.


ARTHUR KOESTLER was born in 1905 in Budapest. Though he studied science and psychology in Vienna, at the age of twenty he became a foreign correspondent and worked for various European newspapers in the Middle East, Paris, Berlin, Russia and Spain. During the Spanish Civil War, which he covered from the Republican side, he was captured and imprisoned for several months by the Nationalists, but was exchanged after international protest. In 1939-40 he was interned in a French detention camp. After his release, due to British government intervention, he joined the French Foreign Legion, subsequently escaped to England, and joined the British Army.

Like many other intellectuals in the thirties, Koestler saw in the Soviet experiment the only hope and alternative to fascism. He became a member of the Communist Party in 1931, but left it in disillusionment during the Moscow purges in 1938. His earlier books were mainly concerned with these experiences, either in autobiographical form or in essays or political novels. Among the latter, Darkness At Noon has been translated into thirty-three languages.

After World War 11, Mr. Koestler became a British citizen, and all his books since 1940 have been written in English, He now lives in London. but he frequently lectures at American universities, and was a Fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford in 1964-65,

In 1968 Mr. Koestler received the Sonning Prize at the University of Copenhagen for his contributions to European culture. He is also a Commander of the Order of the British Empire, as well as one of the ten Companions of Literature, elected by the Royal Society of Literature. His works are now being republished in a collected edition of twenty volumes.

He died in 1981, in a 'suicide pact' with his wife - a tragedy that has aroused some suspicion since, in conspiracy circles. (THEY WERE SUICIDED!)

First published in Britain in 1976, this classic book by Arthur Koestler in now largely unavailable.

Extensive review of the book


 Khazaria—The Myth of Anti-Semitism Exposed at Last!!

Here is the dictionary definition of MYTH:

Etymology: New Latin mýthus, from Late Latin mýthos, from Greek muthos.
A fiction or half-truth, especially one that forms part of an ideology. An unfounded or false notion. A person or thing having only an imaginary or unverifiable existence. Idle fancy, fable, fiction.
Here is the dictionary definition of ANTI-SEMITISM:
1. Hostility toward or prejudice against Jews or Judaism.
2. Discrimination against Jews.
In this Biblical, historical and factual exposé, we will give the reason for the existance of Old Khazaria . . . and New Khazaria!!
The most cruel hoax in history!!

"The most cruel hoax which history has ever perpetrated" are the words used to describe this "Jewish" hoax or myth by a Khazar author named Arthur Koestler:
This was written before the full extent of the holocaust was known, but that does not alter the fact that the large majority of surviving Jews in the world is of Eastern European - and thus perhaps mainly of Khazar - origin. If so, this would mean that their ancestors came not from the Jordan but from the Volga, not from Canaan but from the Caucasus, once believed to be the cradle of the Aryan race; and that genetically they are more closely related to the Hun, Uigur and Magyar tribes than to the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Should this turn out to be the case, then the term "anti-Semitism" would become void of meaning, based on a misapprehension shared by both the killers and their victims. The story of the Khazar Empire, as it slowly emerges from the past, begins to look like the most cruel hoax which history has ever perpetrated. (Arthur Koestler, The Thirteenth Tribe, p. 17).

Old Khazaria.
Old Khazaria existed from about 500 A.D. to about 1000 A.D.
Old Khazaria adopted the religion of Talmudic Judaism about 740 A.D.
Khazaria was reborn on May 14, 1948.

New Khazaria.

Of course the eminent author Mr. Koestler blames HISTORY for perpetuating this hoax or lie, but JESUS said that Satan the devil is the father of lies:
When he (Satan) speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. (John 8:44).
The reason for the existence of Old Khazaria

In one of the greatest of the great prophecies of the Bible, JEHOVAH gives the entire history of the human race in advance from about 500 B.C., to the end of time.
JEHOVAH presented this history in advance in the form of a terrifying statue or image that appeared to King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon in a nightmare . . . which the king promptly forgot when he awoke. 
None of his astrologers or "wise men" could be of any help to him in interpreting the dream because they were all charlatans and fakes.
Daniel the Jewish prophet, who was a captive in Babylon, came to the rescue and told the king his forgotten dream . . . and its interpretation:
Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory. And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold.
And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.
And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.
(Daniel 2:37-40).
Notice that the 4 empires follow one another in SUCCESSION and there is no gap or break between them.
4 world empires of Daniel chapter 2.

The king of Babylon had a dream in which he saw all of world history from his day to the end of time.
Daniel the prophet interpreted the dream as a colossal statue composed of 4 different metals, representing 4 successive world empires.
The legs of iron represented the divided Roman Empire.
The stone or Rock that destroys the image represents Christ at His Second Coming.

The 4 metals correspond to the 4 empires which the king saw in his dream. The stone or Rock symbolizes Christ, who will destroy all earthly empires at His Second Coming:
Even before the time of Constantine, there were several Roman Emperors who lived in several cities besides Rome. The division started in earnest with Constantine.

Constantine was a GIANT or COLOSSUS who conquered the entire Roman Empire.
His iron legions trod down the entire Empire from Britain to Persia.
In 324, he decided to build a new capital in the East at Byzantium, and leave Old Rome to the Papal dynasty.

After he became sole master of the Roman Empire, Constantine began building a new capital at a Greek city called Byzantium. 

Today the city is called Istanbul.
Today the city is called Istanbul.
Constantinople—the New Rome—soon became a rival to Old Rome in splendor and riches.
Eastern Emperors often ruled Rome from this new upstart city.
Constantinople became the new capital of the Roman Empire.
Constantinople became the new capital of the Roman Empire.
Naturally, Old Rome was not about to give pride of place to this new upstart so the rivalry and competition began almost immediately.
Beginning about 400 A.D., and lasting until 1453, Old Rome sent one conqueror after another to destroy Constantinople. These 10 would-be conquerors of Constantinople by no means exhaust the list:
Huns Persians Arabs Magyars Pechenegs
Khazars  Mongols Normans Franks Turks
All of these 10 nations or tribe served many false gods or idols, but they were united in their determination to destroy the Eastern Roman Empire.
Only one of them adopted a false religion named "Judaism" and that tribe was called Khazars....The Khazars were actually a branch of the dreaded Huns who invaded from the Far East around 430 A.D.

The Eastern Emperors were master of the Roman art of divide and conquer....They often played one enemy against another, and Emperor Heraclius (610-641,) bought the Khazar king off with an offer of marriage into the royal family:
This decision did not, however, mean that the Emperor intended to leave Constantinople and its defenders to look after themselves. On the contrary, Patriarch Sergius and the Patrician Bonus, to whom he jointly entrusted the city's defence, found themselves deluged with orders, instructions, advice and messages of encouragement. These last were posted publicly in the streets and had an immediate effect, firing the whole population with determination and enthusiasm for the struggle ahead. Heraclius himself meanwhile turned his attention to one of the principal Hunnish tribes of the Caucasus, the Khazars, intercepting them as they returned from a raiding expedition in Azerbaijan and dazzling their Khagan, Ziebil, by the splendour of his court, which he maintained even when on campaign, and by the richness of his presents. In the course of one of their several conversations, he showed the Khagan a picture of his daughter Epiphania and promised him her hand in marriage. Ziebil, enchanted by the picture and flattered beyond measure both by the treatment he was receiving and by the prospect of himself' joining the imperial family, offered Heraclius 40,000 of his best men in return. (Fortunately for Epiphania, he was dead by the end of the year; the poor girl was thus spared the grim fate to which her father had unhesitatingly consigned her. (Norwich, Byzantium: The Early Centuries, p. 294).
Until the year 760 A.D., the Khazars were idolaters and shamans, who worshipped many false gods. In that year, KIng Bulan, decided to adopt the religion of Talmudic Judaism. His so-called "conversion" accompanied by dreams and visions almost mirrored that of the false prophet named Mohammed.

King Bulan was the first Khazar to adopt "Judaism"
King Bulan was the first of his pagan tribe to adopt the religion of "Judaism." At that time, everybody had to be the same religion as their king, so every member of his shamanistic tribe was now a JEW:
Joseph's narrative starts with a eulogy of his ancestor, King Bulan, a great conqueror and a wise man who "drove out the sorcerers and idolators from his land". Subsequently an angel appeared to King Bulan in his dreams, exhorting him to worship the only true God, and promising that in exchange He would "bless and multiply Bulan's offspring, and deliver his enemies into his hands, and make his kingdom last to the end of the world". This, of course, is inspired by the story of the Covenant in Genesis; and it implies that the Khazars too claimed the status of a Chosen Race, who made their own Covenant with the Lord, even though they were not descended from Abraham's seed. (Koestler, The Thirteenth Tribe, p. 66).
Even the so-called rabbis from Baghdad who converted the king were not real Jews but Samaritans who supplanted the real Jews after the final destruction of Jerusalem by the Roman in 135 A.D. 
The Russians forced the Khazars to abandon Khazaria
These pagan Khazars would not join the Orthodox and cease fighting vainly against Constantinople, so the emerging Russian Orthodox state put an end to Old Khazaria.
Constantinople had an aggressive missionary spirit and the conversion of Russia was the most far-sighted event in their 1000 year turbulent history.
Russia at that time was a small principality centered around the city of Kiev in present day Ukraine.
Saint Vladimir (958-1015).
Saint Vladimir (958-1015).
Saint Vladimir is known as the "baptizer" of Russia because his conversion led to the conversion of that GREAT nation to Orthodox Christianity.
Henceforth Khazaria was caught in a vise between Russia and Constantinople.

After Russia's conversion to Orthodoxy, the clergy rallied that GREAT nation to throw off the Khazar and Mongol yokes.
A crushing blow was dealt to the Khazar Empire by Svyatoslav, Grand Duke of Kiev (ruled 962-972), the son of Prince Igor and Igor's wife Olga. His life was one of war and conquest. The Rus'ian Primary Chronicle recorded that, as part of his childhood upbringing, Svyatoslav was tutored by Asmund and instructed in military tactics by the voievoda (military commander) Svynel'd. Medieval accounts described him as a "valiant" and "strong" leader who "undertook many campaigns". (Brook, The Jews of Khazaria, p.193).
The Khazars were forced out of their base in the Caucasus and most of them migrated to Eastern Europe. That alone counts for the presence of "Jews" in Eastern Europe and Germany.
It's now easy to see why the vengeful Khazars a.k.a. "Jews" were behind the Russian Revolution and Communism. 
A 12th century Khazar state in the Mideast!
Incredible as it may seems, the Khazars tried to establish a "Jewish" state in the Mideast in order to prepare for the Messiah:
Another bit of semi-legendary, semi-historical folklore connected with the Khazars survived into modern times, and so fascinated Benjamin Disraeli that he used it as material for a historical romance: The Wondrous Tale of Alroy. In the twelfth century there arose in Khazaria a Messianic movement, a rudimentary attempt at a Jewish crusade, aimed at the conquest of Palestine by force of arms. The initiator of the movement was a Khazar Jew, one Solomon ben Duji (or Ruhi or Roy), aided by his son Menahem and a Palestinian scribe. They wrote letters to all the Jews, near and far, in all the lands around them.... They said that the time had come in which God would gather Israel, His people from all lands to Jerusalem, the holy city, and that Solomon Ben Duji was Elijah, and his son the Messiah. (Koestler, The Thirteenth Tribe, p. 136).

The hexagram or Star of David came from Khazaria
Believe it or not, the hexagram also came from Khazaria:
But the cult did not stop there. According to one theory, the six-pointed "shield of David" which adorns the modern Israeli flag, started to become a national symbol with David al-Roy's crusade. "Ever since," writes Baron, "it has been suggested, the six-cornered 'shield of David', theretofore mainly a decorative motif or a magical emblem, began its career toward becoming the chief national-religious symbol of Judaism. Long used interchangeably with the pentagram or the 'seal of Solomon', it was attributed to David in mystic and ethical German writings from the thirteenth century on, and appeared on the Jewish flag in Prague in 1527." (Koestler, The Thirteenth Tribe, p. 137).

A six pointed star is called a HEXAGRAM and is used for putting HEXES or curses on people.
It too has its origin in Old Khazaria.

The real reason for the creation of New Khazaria
In one of the greatest of the great prophecies of the Bible, St. Paul said that the man of sin or Antichrist must be revealed FIRST before the end of the world would come:
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition . . . so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. (II Thess 2:3). 
ALL of the Reformers applied that prophecy to the PAPAL DYNASTY. Saint Martin Luther said:
Oh Christ, my Lord, look down upon us and bring upon us the day of judgment, and destroy the brood of Satan at Rome. There sits the Man, of whom the Apostle Paul wrote that he would oppose and exalt himself above all that is called God — the Man of Sin, the son of perdition . . . What is the Temple of God? Is it stones and wood? Did not Paul say, The Temple of God is holy, which Temple ye are? To sit — what is it but to reign, to teach and to judge. Who from the beginning of the church has dared to call himself master of the whole church but the Pope alone. None of the saints, none of the heretics ever uttered so horrible a word of pride. (Luther's Works, Vol. 2. p. 281).
This prophetic teaching (historicist) was playing havoc with the Latin church. Millions were escaping and obeying the Lord's command to "come out of her" (Rev. 18:4). 

Jesuit general Ignatius LIEola (Loyola) commissioned one of his Jesuits named Francisco Ribera (1537-1591) to write an opposing view. He wrote a 500 page commentary on the Book of Revelation. The main premise of his commentary was that:
1. Antichrist was one man . . . not a dynasty.  
2. He would be an atheist or infidel.
3. He would not be revealed until 7 years before the end of time.
4. He would sit in a rebuilt temple in Jerusalem and make a covenant with the Jews.
5. He would call himself God etc., etc.
6. The Christians were hindering his appearance but they would be "caught up" or raptured to Heaven before his appearance— the "Left Behind" madness!!
This became the official Latin position on Antichrist. This new idea (futurism) very conveniently shifted the focus from the Papacy to some fanciful individual way off in the distant future. John Nelson Darby became its main proponent in the English speaking world.
The Khazars very conveniently played a major role in fulfilling this "prophecy". They claimed to be "Jews," and a few fanatics actually wanted to conquer Palestine by force and make it a homeland for the Khazars a.k.a. "Jews."
There was one problem however. The Turks occupied Palestine and they were not about to give up that land to Khazars. World War I saw the defeat of the Turks and the opening of Palestine for Khazar immigration.
General Allenby (1861-1936).
General Allenby (1861-1936).
The stage was set for the rebirth of Khazaria on December 11, 1917, when British general Allenby conquered Palestine from the Turks.
Most Khazars had no interest in Palestine so it took another world war to get them to emigrate there.

With the British conquest of Palestine, the door was now open for Khazar emigration. 

Unfortunately for the Jesuits, most Khazars, even though they called themselves "Jews," had no interest in leaving Europe and moving to Palestine. It took World War II and a 6 million hoax to get them to finally settle there. 
Millions of people perished in World War II. The nation that suffered the most was Russia, with the loss of 20 million people. Serbs lost millions in concentration camps but you never hear anything about their suffering.

The 6 million hoax
It was the 6 million hoax that led to the rebirth of Khazaria in 1948. Without the sympathy this hoax garnered from the world community, that state would never have been established on land claimed by the Arabs.

We are not denying that Khazars suffered from the Nazi regime . . . just like many other nationalities....It is a favorite tactic of Old Rome to "persecute" her own in order to induce guilt, or sympathy for the victim....We see this over and over in history. The most famous example is that of Jesuit Galileo whose "persecution" by Dominicans made his moving earth myth a "scientific" fact.

The rebirth of Khazaria would never have been possible without the help of Fuehrer Adolf Hitler.
Hitler did have some Khazars thrown into concentration camps, but this small number was multiplied to 6 million, and thus won them worldwide sympathy.
Oddly enough, the Khazar population worldwide was about the same after the war as before!!

Khazaria was reborn on May 14, 1948.
Khazaria was reborn on May 14, 1948.
It is a proven statistical fact that the number of Khazars worldwide was about the same after the war as before. Here is a quote from a scientist and mathematician named Arthur R. Butz:
To summarize what has been said with respect to Jewish population statistics: the problem of compiling such statistics is formidable even without political interference or pressure. Moreover, in the demographic argument for a five or six million drop in world Jewish population, the sources and authorities for the figures used are Communist and Jewish and thus, by the nature of the problem we are examining, must be considered essentially useless. In addition, the post-war figures for the United States are demonstrably too low by a significant amount. (Butz, The Hoax of the 20th Century).

George Galloway - Again, What right did Britain have to grant you (Jews) somebody else's country?


Bravo Mr Galloway, but the Six Million Jewish Holocaust is a HOAX and I can prove it!
  But, in this context it does not matter whether six or twelve million Jews lost their lives during the Allied war against Germany!
So, BRAVO again Mr Galloway!
