Steven M. Collins’ Pretzel Factory #7
With this seventh paper, we continue our critical review of Steven M. Collins’ twisted view/s, that the “JEWS ARE JUDAH” in his position paper on Internet web site http://www.israelite.info/Christian_Authors/ Jews-are-Judahreasons.htm. Steven M. Collins’ mailing address is: P.O. Box 88735, Sioux Falls, SD 57109-1005. Collins is the author of a book entitled The Lost Tribes of Israel ... Found, which I would give only a mediocre rating. By the way, if you haven’t read my paper #’s 1 through 6 as yet, you may not entirely comprehend this one.
In my brochures entitled Steven M. Collins’ Pretzel Factory #’s 1 through 6, I completely invalidated all “four” of his alleged reasons he presumes “THE JEWS ARE JUDAH.” Time after time after time, Collins manages to create faulty premises to the detriment of his final conclusions, which are also flawed. He swears unequivocally that he gets his evil concepts from Yahweh’s, or as he states it, “God’s Word.” But as I demonstrated in my first six flyers, his deleterious concepts can only be from the pits of Hell! It is blasphemous to suggest otherwise! I have now debunked all of his hatched-up “four” reasons, and I will continue addressing some of the remainder of his vile, obnoxious, nauseating refuse, which he evidently doesn’t seem to think stinks.
In my flyer #6, I countered Collins on his assertion that the Book of Esther proved Yahweh’s approval of non-Israel “assimilation.” I showed how the prophet Daniel knew the difference between a Canaanite pretending to be of the Tribe of Judah and a true Judahite at Susanna 56-57! To show you how appalling Collins’ mentality is, I shall now continue to quote from his deranged diatribe:
“While it is beyond the scope of this report to examine these events in detail, the Parthians, Jews, mingled Semites, and the Parthian royalty fled in great numbers toward Europe and the Black Sea region through the Caucasus Mountains of Armenia.  These masses of refugees became known as ‘Caucasians,’ and later became the Anglo-Saxons, Goths, Germans, etc. who poured into Europe from the east and destroyed the Roman empire. It is worth noting, however, that while Greco-Roman historians recognized the battle of Nisibis as one of the major engagements in the history of the Roman empire, modern historical accounts ignore this pivotal event. History texts are full of information about Gentile empires, but omit or downplay the history of the Israelite empires (Phoenicia, Carthage, Parthia, and Scythia) even though the Israelite empires frequently defeated the Gentile empires of Assyria, Persia, Greece, and Rome in wars.”
“Impact of Parthia’s Fall on Parthian Jews:
“When Parthia fell and its Semitic people fled toward eastern Europe, many Jews would have migrated with them. Remember that the population of Asian Jews was very large, and far greater than the population of Judean Jews (who had descended from the contingent of Asian Jews who had returned to Jerusalem under Ezra and Nehemiah). While the Jews of Judea were oppressed under Rome, the Parthian Jews enjoyed great freedom and autonomy.  When the Sassanian Persians overthrew the Parthians and began a ‘jihad’ against all things Semitic, the Jews would had [sic.] every motivation to flee along with the Parthian (i.e. Israelite) tribes who had been their protectors. Where did these numerous Asian Jews go? Those who maintain that modern Jews are not the tribe of Judah ignore the fact that there was a major Jewish population present with the Parthian-Israelite tribes who migrated toward eastern Europe via the area of the Black Sea. The Asian (i.e. ‘Parthian’) Jews did not migrate to the moon, nor did they disappear into a black hole. Since these Parthian Jews were members of the tribe of Judah, we should expect them to reappear in considerable numbers in eastern Europe and the Black Sea region along with the rest of the migrating Semites. That is exactly what happened.”
“The Encyclopaedia Britannica records that in Persian tradition the Arsacids (Parthia’s rulers) were called the Ashkanians.  The Britannica further notes that this name was based on the term ‘Ashak.’  The word ‘Ashak’ is based on the Hebrew name ‘Isaac’ as was a city in the Parthian homeland named ‘Asaak.’  Genesis 21:12 prophesied that the Israelites would be known by the name of Isaac, and this came true as the Parthians and Scythians were identified by such names as Sacae, Asaak, Ashak, and Sacan (or Saxon). When the Israelites and Jews were expelled from Parthia by the Sassanian Persians, it is noteworthy that the Persian name for the Parthians remained on the Parthian Jews who migrated toward Europe. The Parthian name ‘Ashkan-ian’ is easily seen in the term Ashken-azi Jew! The very term ‘Ashkenazi’ proclaims a Parthian (or Israelite) origin, and the term ‘Ashkenazi Jew’ could just as easily be rendered as ‘Parthian Jew’.”
“A Brief History of the Khazars:
“Some who deny that Ashkenazi Jews are descended from the tribe of Judah assert that the term ‘Ashkenazi Jew’ is based on a branch of the Japhethic race mentioned in Genesis 10:3. However, some who make that connection also assert the Ashkenazi Jews are ‘Edomite/Khazars.’ You can’t have it both ways! We have already seen that the Edomites have no racial connection to Japheth; they are Semites and fellow-Hebrews with the Israelites. Therefore, the only historical origin for the term ‘Ashkenazi’ that makes any sense is that it indicates a ‘Parthian’ origin for the Ashkenazi Jews.”
In this last paragraph Collins’ true character begins to show what kind of a person he really is! He thinks he has just made what he believes is an impregnable point that no one can fracture when he says, “You can’t have it both ways!” He’s like a bantam-rooster with his feathers all fluffed out, strutting defiantly, daring anyone to cross his path. His cockiness is so manifest that the smell of it rises off of the printed page.
As I said before, both the Sephardic and Ashkenazi have one thing in common; Hittite blood flowing in their veins! I have a little booklet entitled A Gallery of Jewish Types, Portrait Drawings By Lionel Reiss, Explanatory Text By Lothrop Stoddard. Stoddard is more of an anthropologist than a Bible student, so I will take some excerpts from this 20 page pamphlet using ellipsis to delete ambiguous Biblical interpretations:
“... Even more striking is the parallel between the ancient Hittites and a large proportion of the modern Ashkenazim. One cannot look at a Hittite sculpture without being struck by the ‘Jewishness’ of the faces there depicted. The famous ‘Jewish nose’, with its peculiarly hooked nostril, is found to be not exclusively Jewish, but to have been shared by the ancient Hittites, and also by modern peoples of the West Asiatic Highlands. Armenians Caucasians [i.e. Turks, Georgians, Azerbaijanis] and Anatolians to-day look so much like this type of Jew that it is practically impossible to distinguish them by their physical appearance ... .
“... Even to-day Hamitic types appear among the Jews, especially among the Sephardim. For example: Benjamin Disraeli, the noted English statesman, had markedly Hamitic features. ... A Negroid strain undoubtedly exists in Jewry; to it the frizzy or woolly hair, thick lips, and prognathous jaws appearing in many Jewish individuals are probably due .... .
“... The evolution of eastern Jewry is at once more obscure and more complicated. Their prosperity was gravely compromised by the Mohammedan conquest and conversion of Mesopotamia and Persia in the seventh century A.D. Harried and persecuted by Moslem zealots, the Jews grew restless and sought an avenue of escape. They presently found it to the northward in the plains of southern Russia, where opportunities beckoned them, perhaps more favorable than ever before in their history. Southern Russia was then occupied by the people known as the Khazars. Precisely what the Khazars were racially is a much disputed point. Probably they were predominantly of broad-headed Turkish stock from Central Asia, together with a strong strain of flat-faced, short-statured Mongoloids from still farther eastward. They certainly built up a flourishing state which derived its prosperity from its command of the overland trading-routes between the Near and Middle East, the Khazars being a mercantile, town-dwelling folk. From the first they had been in contact with the numerous Jews of the Caucasus, and the two peoples had got along well together. Soon the Jews of Khazaria became so numerous and influential that they made a cultural and spiritual conquest of their hosts. The Khazars became converted to Judaism and established what amounted to a Jewish state. This acted like a magnet to the whole of eastern Jewry, and one of those vast mass-migrations which have occurred several times in Jewish history took place. In the eighth century A.D., Mesopotamia, Persia, and the Armenian-Caucasian area still contained the bulk of the world’s Jewish population. By the end of the tenth century these lands were almost emptied of Jews. Lured to Khazaria as to the ‘Promised Land’, Jewry pushed northward from Asia into southeastern Europe, – swarming in by the hundred thousand, by sea, by river, and by mountain-trail.
“And during those two centuries was forged the Ashkenazic stock of to-day. This migration involved sweeping racial changes. In the first place, Jewry’s slow progress through the Armenian and Caucasian highlands implied a. further admixture and strengthening of the Armenoid at the expense of the Semitic racial element. Then, once in Khazaria, extensive intermarriage with the converted Khazars resulted in a further influx of Turkish and Mongoloid blood. The result was a population prevailingly round-headed and thick-set, but with two outstanding facial types: the full-faced, hook-nosed Armenoid; and the flat-faced, squat- or pug-nosed Mongoloid, respectively. The Semitic[?] type must have almost entirely disappeared. The consequences of this racial transformation were as unprecedented as they were far-reaching. Hitherto the basic elements in Jewry’s ethnic make-up had been either Semitic or Armenoid, waxing or waning in relative importance from age to age, it is true, yet still always preponderant, no other racial element having been sufficiently important to shake their joint significance. Now, for the first time, radically new ethnic elements, from Central and Eastern Asia, were injected into the Jewish blood, and injected in such volume as powerfully and permanently to alter the nature of the great mass of the Jewish people. The profound differences, not merely in physical appearance, but also in mentality and temperament, which exist between Ashkenazim and Sephardim are thus clearly explained. They are obviously due to almost complete differences in racial make-up. The Sephardim have for the past thousand years been breeding away from the old Armenoid toward the long-headed Semitic and Mediterranean racial types. The Ashkenazim, on the contrary, have not only been breeding away from the Semitic toward the Armenoid type, but have also taken up a great amount of Central Asian and Mongoloid blood which was unknown to ancient Jewry and which has never flowed in Sephardim’s veins.
“Great as is the present difference between Ashkenazim and Sephardim, however, it is not quite as great as the divergence eight hundred or nine hundred years ago, owing to certain minor modifications which have since taken place. The evolution of the modern Ashkenazim was not quite complete. By the eleventh century, the Khazar Empire, grown rich and unwarlike, collapsed before the assaults of its enemies, and the Jewish masses, again fallen on evil times, drifted slowly westward in search of better opportunities. Seeping across southern Russia, they began to appear in Poland. This movement was soon accelerated by the action of the Polish Kings. Intent on building up a strong state, the Polish monarchs welcomed the Jews in order to build up a middle class devoted to industry and trade. Immediately Poland became what Khazaria had once been, – a magnet for Jewish mass-migration. And these Jewish immigrants, though mainly from the east, came, in lesser numbers, from the west as well. Western Europe had by that time become the scene of bitter anti-Jewish persecutions, so that, there also, many Jews heeded the welcome summons of the Polish Crown. Here, then, on Polish soil, the long-sundered branches of Jewry met once more. The immigrants from Western Europe were, of course, Sephardim, and though too few in numbers materially to affect the Ashkenazic physical type, they did impose their superior culture and a debased form of their Germanic speech, which, mixed with Hebrew, Slavic, and other linguistic elements, constitutes the present jargon known as Yiddish, employed by the Polish Jews to this day. The slight infusion of Sephardic blood gained during the Middle Ages, together with considerable Slavic blood picked during their migrations through Russia and Poland complete the racial evolution of the modern Ashkenazic stock in its present Polish home.
“Such, in brief, is the surprisingly complex pedigree of Judah [sic. rather Jews]. It effectively disposes of the fiction that the modern Jew is the true scion of the ancient Hebrew. The proportion of genuine Hebrew blood to-day should be very small even among the Sephardim, while among the Ashkenazim it must be infinitesimal.”
Other Biblical portions from this little booklet are wanting, but they are a lot more truthful than what Collins is advocating. The Concise Bible Commentary by W. K. Lowther Clarke has some insight on the Hittite connection with the Jews on pages 24-25:
“HITTITES. – A people which by 1600 [B.C.] formed a powerful State centred in eastern Asia Minor. Representations on the monuments show them to have been of a strongly ‘Armenoid’ type; the Jew of today resembles the ancient Hittites ... Khatti, as the Hittite kingdom was called, penetrated as far as Babylon c. 1550; also into N. Syria. In 1370 it conquered Mitanni, the N. Mesopotamian kingdom, and for a long period faced the Egyptian empire in central and southern Syria. In the 14th and 13th centuries Khatti probably profited by the weakness of Egypt and pushed into Palestine. About 1200 the Hittite empire collapsed before the attacks of invaders from the north, though Hittite States seem to have continued in the Carchemish district. Hittites occur regularly among the lists of nations to be driven out from Palestine. ... Also we may suppose that pockets of genuine Hittites created by the great expansion of their empire remained where they were when it collapsed and were eventually absorbed into the population of Syria and Palestine. Cp. Ezek. 16:3, ‘thy mother was an Hittite’ (of Jerusalem). It is permissible to hold that the sturdy Anatolian stock from Asia Minor contributed to the formation of the tenacious Jewish race.” [emphasis mine]
Howard B. Rand’s Special Alert - No. 21, Aug. - Sept., 1981, with his Abrahamic chart, said the following:
“PROPHECY is a closed book if the true identity of the race of the Book is not acknowledged. If it is assumed that the Jews are all of Israel in the world today, and that they are ‘God’s Chosen People,’ this erroneous concept places an insurmountable stumbling block in the way of ‘rightly dividing the word of truth,’ (II Tim. 2: 15). ....
“It displays the fact that through the intermingling of racial strains, certain of his descendants forfeited their inheritance of the blessings in the everlasting Abrahamic Covenant. Esau, the son of Jacob, despised his birthright (Gen. 25: 34) and married Hittite wives (Gen. 26: 34-35). He became the father of the Edomites. This process of selecting and rejecting those of the Abrahamic line has continued from the time of Esau to the present day, based upon their actions.
“Unlawful Seizure: Modern Jewry, with its ancestral inheritance from Edomites, Hittites, Amalekites and Khazars, is, like Esau, not entitled to be the recipients of Abrahamic blessings. Time and coming events will disclose this to be true ...”
I would again remind you of the statement Collins said concerning the name Ashkenazi having nothing to do with the “Ashkenaz” at Genesis 10:3:
“Some who deny that Ashkenazi Jews are descended from the tribe of Judah assert that the term ‘Ashkenazi Jew’ is based on a branch of the Japhethic race mentioned in Genesis 10:3. However, some who make that connection also assert the Ashkenazi Jews are ‘Edomite/Khazars.’ You can’t have it both ways!”
In the 900’s A.D., Hisdai ibn Shaprut of Spain learned of the existence of a Jewish kingdom somewhere in a distant land beyond the Black Sea, whereupon he sent a letter to the king of the Khazars which I will not quote here. Then the king of Khazaria replied in part: “From Joseph the king son of Isaac the king, to Hisdai son of Isaac son of Ezra. I wish to inform you that your beautifully phrased letter was given us by Isaac son of Eliezer, a Jew of the land of Germany, who has carried it through Germany, Hungary, and Russia to Khazaria. Know that we are descended from Japhet, through his son Togarmah, the father of all the Turks. The land in which I now live was formerly occupied by the Bulgarians. Our ancestors, the Khazars, came and fought with them ... They left while the Khazars pursued them as far as the Danube River. ...” (Wanderings, Chaim Potok’s History of the Jews, page 263.)
It appears that Collins is not playing with a full deck of cards! This is interesting, as this makes the Ashkenazi Jews part of Gog and Magog who are to, (and already are) attacking America (Ezekiel 38-39). By Collins claiming the Ashkenazi Jews are “God’s chosen people”, he has joined the enemy, making himself a traitor, unless he is really one of them!
