This has been soundly debunked by SCIENCE. Genetics shows clearly that the vast majority of Ashkenazi Jews trace their lineage back to the Levant. The Khazar theory simply doesn’t have any truth to it.
2. Jews killed Jesus/Jesus wasn’t Jewish
Actually Jesus was executed and tortured by the Romans, who were in power in Judeah at the time. The Christian new testament is very clear on that; there is a line where Pontius Pilate “washes his hands” of the decision but if you read the history, you know that nothing happened in Roman territory without the Roman governors consent. Roman territories were not semi autonomous, in fact they were very oppressive. Jesus was born in Bethlehem, raised in Nazareth and was a religious Jew who felt that the temple was sacred (hence the whole flipping tables thing). He was mentioned as “king of the Jews several times in the Christian new testament. His mother was Jewish which according to Halacha makes him Jewish. People claiming he was anything else, have to do serious mental gymnastics to do so.
3. Jews are imperialist conquering colonisers who stole other people’s land.
Firstly, the country of Israel consists of less than 1% of the Middle Eastern land mass, so if the Jws are imperialist, they are really bad at it. Secondly, they have the deepest roots to the land in question tracing back 4,000 years. Genetically they have ties to the Canaanites as well as linguistically. Thirdly, documentation shows very clearly that the majority of the land in question was purchased from Ottoman effendi land owners. Generally speaking, Arabs in the Levant were tenant farmers who didn’t own the land they lived on (this was normal as in Europe, very rarely did peasants own the land they lived on, and everything was owned by the royal class.)
4. Jews control the banks and media
Jews do have a disproportionate number of people in finance and media, and that does trace back to when Jews were not allowed to own land or work in trades. Jewish people also place a huge emphasis on education which leads to the ability to work in those fields as well as science and medicine, hence the incredibly number of major scientific advances and medical advances that come from Jewish scientists and doctors. To say they control those fields is inaccurate; they do however contribute massively in all of those fields. FYI, the largest banking consortiums in the world are not Jewish, and the largest media mogul in the world? Again not Jewish, so clearly there is no monopoly.
5. Jews all support Trump/ Jews all hate Trump.
Anyone who spends any time among Jews knows that getting Jews to agree on anything is like herding Cats. There are literally no issues on which you could say ALL Jews agree. There are a few (very few) things that you could say MOST Jews agree on, but politics would not be one of them. There is a joke that in Israel, there are 6 million Prime Ministers, each with their own political party. And that’s not far off the truth. So using politics to demonize all Jews is foolish.
Here’s the thing: I could have made this the 10 or 15 or 20, or even 100 dumbest things you will read about Jews on the internet. I left out: the lizard alien theory, Jews have horns, Jews drink the blood of gentiles garbage, only dark skinned Jews are Jewish stuff – I could go on, but I thought I would just give you a taste of the absolutely idiotic stuff I read about Jews on a regular basis on Facebook.
Merry Christmas, (a Jewish guy’s birthday).
