Truth the mainstream media doesn't tell you about
In 740 A.D. in a land locked between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea, known as
Khazaria, a land which today is predominantly occupied by Georgia, but also reaches into
Russia, Poland, Lithuania, Hungary, and Romania, the modern Jewish race is born. A modern
Jewish race that incidentally is not Jewish.
How can this be, you ask? Well at that time, the Khazarian people felt a vulnerable people as
they had Muslims one side of them and Christians the other side of them, and thus constantly
feared attack from either side. Furthermore, the Khazarian people were of neither faith and
instead practiced idol worship, which made them ripe for invasion by a people who wished to
convert them to an established faith.
The Khazarian King,
King Bulan, decided in order to protect themselves against attack,
This is as far as I got before I found falacy in this theory, fallacy that delivered a deadly blow to the very foundation.
The motive we are given for these "Khazarian" people to embark on their evil manipulation of the world is "fear of attacks from Christians and/or Muslims" and the need to "protect themselves" (poor lil guys) from these dangerous warmongers at both borders.
I'll not go on an hour long Theological lecture (really not even needed) and simply point out the obvious. The Christian religion is based soley on Jesus Christ. A Man who claimed to be the only true God and left strict, clear commands that His followers live in peace with ALL men. Commands that we love the unbeliever, commands to gently live among them and FUTHERMORE, when we were attacked or treated poorly by unbelievers of our faith, to respond only with longsuffering and kindness. Turning the other cheek, you may remember..
So, to claim that fear of the Christian population or its ability or history to cause sufferage upon them is both ilogical and intellectually dishonest. But, alas, whats new?
I'll not comment on rather the supposed poor poor persecuted and boxed in "Khazarians" faced any such persecution from the Muslim population, but will say I HIGHLY suspect it equally mere bullsnit.
Thus, IMO, this is more of their created propaganda, though likely to have some truth mixed in randomly, in an attempt to give it a degree of credibilty.
This video, sharing the title, looks interesting..any thoughts?

Can't swear to this, but I believe the prime motive in the Khazars choosing Judaism was to set themselves up as a "buffer" between the mutually antagonistic Christian and Muslim groups. If they had chosen either of these latter two religions, they would have found themselves being attacked by the other religion. Jews were in the minority and weren't considered a threat by the larger monotheistic faiths, as both Christians and Muslims traded with the Jews. So in this sense, I believe King Bulan made the only sensible choice in choosing Judaism for Khazaria's state religion. Not that I agree with the results that turned out later.
