Who Are the Jews?


For this subject I will be quoting in part from a monthly publication called American Renaissance, vol. 19, No. 5, dated May 2008. This publication then does a critical review of Jon Entine’s, Abraham’s Children: Race, Identity, and the DNA of the Chosen People, Grand Central Publishing, reviewed by Thomas Jackson. I will include my own criticism, both pro and con, in brackets and bold and underlined type. I do not consider Thomas Jackson’s critical review to be perfect, but he does bring to light the DNA of the people falsely claiming to be Israelites – but do lie, Rev. 2:9 and 3:9:

... I know the blasphemy of them which say they are [of Judah] , and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.” ...

Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are [of Judah], and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy [kings of true Judah’s], feet and to know that I have loved thee.” Now to Thomas Jackson’s critical review:

Using DNA to find out.

Shelves of books have been written about Jewish [sic Edomite-jewish] history and identity, but many ancient accounts have been impossible to verify independently. Now, advances in DNA analysis have added much greater precision to our understanding of Jewish origins, and can be used to test many of the oral traditions Jews have passed on for millennia. Jon Entine’s Abraham’s Children is a good Summary of recent work in this field, and covers several other areas of genetic research, most notably Jewish diseases and Jewish intelligence.

Mr. Entine is the author of the 2000 book Taboo:Why Black Athletes Dominate Sports and Why We’re Afraid to Talk About It (see review in American Renaissance, Feb. 2000), in which he investigated the physical – and by implication genetic – reasons why blacks dominate many sports. He therefore understands race and racial differences. He also knows the penalties for writing about the biological distinctiveness of Jews or any other group, but plunges in bravely all the same. Abraham’s Children is not without flaws, but any massmarket book that takes group differences seriously is important.

Children of Israel? [or are they?]

Most Jews [sic Edomite-jews] fall into two groups, Ashkenazi (European) or Sephardic (Middle Eastern). Are they the descendants of the Biblical Children of Israel? Because of where they lived and how they looked, Sephardic Jews always had a plausible link to the people who wrote the Old Testament, but there have been doubts about the origins of Ashkenazim. Of the non-Biblical theories about their origins, the best known is that they are descended from the Khazars, a Central Asian people said to have converted to Judaism in approximately the 8th century.

DNA evidence of two kinds has been brought to bear on this question. DNA from the Y chromosome can be used to trace the male ancestry of a population, and mitochondrial DNA can be used to trace female ancestry. This approach works because both these kinds of DNA are passed from generation to generation without recombination, unlike all other DNA, which is mixed and recombined during reproduction. Of the 23 pairs of chromosomes, the pair found only in males, composed of a Y from the father and an X from the mother, does not recombine. This means the Y is passed from father to son without any changes other than those that appear through chance mutation. Because mutations occur on the Y at a predictable rate, by comparing the accumulated differences on their Ys it is possible to estimate how long ago two men had a common ancestor.

This method has been used to calculate how far back we must go to find a common ancestor of all men [sic except Adam-men]; living today, and the figure seems to be around 180,000 years. Of all the people on the planet, Bushmen appear to be most similar to that distant ancestor. Mutations have been constantly building up on the Y, and men of the same race or ethnic groups have similar sets of mutations.

What does the Y chromosome tell us about Jews [sic Edomite-jews]? Mr. Entine reports that some of the early research in this area focused on the Cohanim or Jewish priestly class [sic who’s priestly class???]. According to the Bible, Moses’ older brother Aaron became the first high priest, and only his male descendants could aspire to this role. After the Romans sacked the Second [sic Third] Temple in 70 AD the Cohanim lost their job, but Jews have [falsely] handed down the oral tradition of priestly status ever since, and about 3 percent of Jewish men claim to be Cohanim [sic showing that a few men or women of Judah did mix their DNA with nonwhite alien Canaanite-Edomite-jews].

Geneticists have found a marker on the Y that is so closely associated with claims to be Cohanim that they call it the Cohen Modal Haplotype. The best estimates of mutation rates suggest the marker originated about the time Aaron would have lived [sic Aaron not an Edomite!]. Most Jewish men show evidence of several different male lineages, meaning that they are not descended from the same man, but the majority of Cohanim appear to trace their paternity to the same root [sic again showing that a few men or women of Judah did mix their DNA with nonwhite aliens].

In one test of Cohanim claimants, no fewer than 98.5 percent had the Cohen Modal Haplotype. Wherever this marker came from, it is a sure sign of common descent, and if it really does mean descent from Aaron’s time [sic whose time?], it supports two extraordinary conclusions: that the oral tradition has been very durable and accurate, and that many generations of mothers were faithful to their husbands [sic again showing that a few men or women of Aaron did mix their DNA with nonwhite aliens].

Both Ashkenazim and Sephardim have the Cohen Modal Haplotype, as well as other markers that trace back to the Middle East, and this strongly supports the view that both groups originated in the area of Biblical Israel. The haplotype is not exclusive to Jews, however. A few Kurds, Armenians, Hungarians, and Italians – all of whom have had long association with Jews – carry the same marker, which suggests that some Cohanim either abandoned Judaism and assimilated, or had affairs with gentiles [sic nonwhite alien].

The other kind of DNA most useful for tracing ancestry is mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). Mitochondria are energyproducing organelles outside the nucleus but within the cell, and contain their own primitive DNA. They are passed on only by the mother. Sperm cells contain mitochondria but it is only the nucleus of the sperm that fertilizes the egg. The cytoplasm of the fertilized egg therefore contains mtDNA only from the mother, which, like the Y chromosome, is passed on to succeeding generations unchanged except for mutations.

Again like the Y chromosome, mutations accumulate at more or less predictable rates, so differences in mtDNA show how distantly related people are, and how far back one must go to find a common mother. The best estimates are that the most recent common mother of all the world’s inhabitants lived about 145,000 years ago [sic except for Adam-men & women]. It should be noted that there was never a time when there was just one man or one woman [sic What? no Adam and Eve?]. If an ancient man had no sons, that was the end of his line of Y DNA, and if an ancient woman had no daughters, her mtDNA ended with her sons. In either case, descendants could have gone on to contribute DNA to many succeeding generations, but not Y or mitochondrial DNA.

The story of Jewish mtDNA is quite different from that of Y DNA; there are no distinctively Jewish lineages. Instead, the female ancestors of today’s Jews appear to have been primarily the women among whom Diaspora Jews lived: Europeans for Ashkenazim and Middle Easterners for Sephardim.

This is not to say Jews have not been endogamous. However, once the Jews dispersed from Palestine, many men appear to have taken gentile [sic non-Edomite-jewish] wives who adopted their husbands’ religion. This means the founding mothers of many of today’s Jewish communities were not Jews by present Israeli standards, which require proof of a Jewish mother. Once they established communities in their new homelands, however, Jews appear to have been remarkably endogamous. By the time the descent-from-a-Jewish-mother rule was adopted, it had no doubt been long forgotten that distant ancestresses were gentiles [sic other nonwhite alien].

Early Origins

Mr. Entine points out that no record other than the Bible reports a sizable Israelite presence in Egypt or the Exodus. History and archeology suggest the Jews were local Canaanites who later wrote a fanciful account of their origins. At some early stage in their history, however, they acquired two distinctive characteristics: a belief in monotheism and a fanatical sense of chosenness. From Deuteronomy on, there is fierce condemnation of intermarriage with outsiders, and some of the prophets even called for death for anyone who married out.

A civil war around 930 BC divided the Israelite kingdoms into Israel in the north and Judah in the south. In 720 BC the Assyrians conquered the north, and the ten tribes of that kingdom – the ‘lost tribes’ – left the historical record. The Assyrians conquered the southern kingdom of Judah in the early 6th century BC and were in turn conquered by the Persians in 539 BC. [This is simplified to the point of error.]It is from the time that Judah was a Persian province that its inhabitants came to be known as Jews.

Palestine came under Roman rule from 63 BC to 313 AD, but was a troublesome province. Emperor Hadrian, who put down a revolt from 132 to 135 AD, decided that Israel [sic Edomite-jews] ‘should be destroyed and the Jewish [sic Edomite-jewish] people annihilated because they were the only people on earth who refused to associate with the rest of humanity.’ He tried to obliterate Judaism, which he considered the root of the problem, and many of the Jews he drove out of Palestine gathered in Rome and on the Iberian Peninsula, which became the main centers of Jewish population. The Sephardic/Ashkenazi split appears to date from this period; Iberian Jews later became the Sephardim, and Italian Jews the Ashkenazim.

When the Muslims invaded the Iberian Peninsula in 711, the forebears of the Sephardic Jews welcomed them as liberators and thrived under Muslim rule. Ferdinand and Isabella, who completed the reconquest of the peninsula in 1492, expelled the Jews [sic Edomite-jews] that same year, and that group of refugees, along with Jews [sic Edomite-jews] later expelled from Portugal, are known as Sephardic or Spanish Jews. Most of them fled to North Africa and the Middle East, though a handful went to the New World. Genetic testing suggests that Sephardim, especially Iraqi, Moroccan, and Tunisian Jews are probably most like the Israelites of Biblical times. [sic who at what time?]

The forebears of the Ashkenazim appear to have been Jews living in Italy, who went north after the chaos that followed the fall of the Roman Empire. The Rhineland region, which the Jews called Ashkenaz, became the spiritual center of the migration and gave the group its name. Jews lived separately from and in some antagonism with the populations among whom they lived, and were expelled from Britain in 1270, France in 1306, and later even from the Rhineland.

Mr. Entine writes that Jews suffered greatly during the Black Death of 1348 to 1351, which wiped out a third of Europe’s population. Jews were blamed for the plague and many were massacred. A remnant fled into Lithuania, Poland, and Moravia, but by the early 16th century, there may have been only a few tens of thousands of European Jews. This drastic fall in numbers shrank the gene pool, and centuries of subsequent endogamy have, for better or worse, made Ashkenazi Jews an extremely inbred population.

It is the progeny of this group that account for an estimated 10 million of today’s 13 million Jews, and are the vast majority of the Jews of Europe and the United States. Mr. Entine notes that Dutch Jews show the greatest gentile [sic here meaning non-Edomite] admixture on the paternal line, and are probably least related to the Biblical Hebrews.”

The reader has just received a lot opinion from modern science concerning genetics, mitochondrial DNA, X and Y chromosomes, the Cohanim Haplotype, renamed by the Edomite-jews as the “Cohen Modal Haplotype”, but there is a fly in the ointment! Let’s review the text where this is stated:

What does the Y chromosome tell us about Jews? Mr. Entine reports that some of the early research in this area focused on the Cohanim or Jewish priestly class. According to the Bible, Moses’ older brother Aaron became the first high priest, and only his male descendants could aspire to this role ... Geneticists have found a marker on the Y that is so closely associated with claims to be Cohanim that they call it the Cohen Modal Haplotype. The best estimates of mutation rates suggest the marker originated about the time Aaron would have lived ....”

Frankly, this is one of the most stupid, dimwitted, harebrained, concocted pieces of tommyrot I ever heard of! Just where or when has any archeologist, or any other searching expedition found the burial place of Aaron or one of his sons to exhume one of their bodies to obtain a sample of their DNA to discover their Haplotype? There isn’t any, and they didn’t! It is more likely that the Edomite-jews took several samples of DNA from their own Edomite-jewish rabbis, and found the Haplotype of Cain, who murdered Abel, instead of finding the Haplotype of Aaron or one of his sons! There is absolutely no way that any Edomite-jew could be genetically related to the Aaronic priesthood! This is a satanic lie right out of the pits of hell! To better comprehend Haplotype/-Haplotypes I will cite the following from the website:


Haplotype / Haplotypes

A haplotype is a group of genes within an organism that was inherited together from a single parent. The word ‘haplotype’ is derived from the word ‘haploid,’ which describes cells with only one set of chromosomes, and from the word ‘genotype,’ which refers to the genetic makeup of an organism. A haplotype can describe a pair of genes inherited together from one parent on one chromosome, or it can describe all of the genes on a chromosome that were inherited together from a single parent. This group of genes was inherited together because of genetic linkage, or the phenomenon by which genes that are close to each other on the same chromosome are often inherited together. In addition, the term ‘haplotype’ can also refer to the inheritance of a cluster of single nucleotide polymorphisms (i.e., SNPs), which are variations at single positions in the DNA sequence among individuals.

By examining haplotypes, scientists can identify patterns of genetic variation that are associated with health and disease states. For instance, if a haplotype is associated with a certain disease, then scientists can examine stretches of DNA near the SNP cluster to try to identify the gene or genes responsible for causing the disease.”

Other website sources make the claim that over vast spans of time the haplotypes have become mutated and have formed the various races. I don’t believe that either, for Genesis chapter 1 teaches “... after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so ...” Kind after kind doesn’t reproduce mutants of any sort! When it is NOT kind after kind, that is what produces mutants! Mutants are what the Bible term as mamzers, (i.e., mongrels / bastards).

What’s all of this bull-crap, “... about the time Aaron would have lived ...” There is absolutely no way the geneticists of today can establish an accurate time period in the past by mutations of the haplotypes! Take Yahshua Christ for instance. Are we to believe there were mutations on Yahshua’s haplotypes when Scripture clearly indicates that He was without any blemish? Inasmuch as Yahshua Christ was without blemish, so are His Ekklesia for, Ephesians 5:30 states: “For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.” This verse speaks of racial purity, not mutations!

Claims about mitochondrial DNA, that variations are only mutations which happened many times over tens of thousands of years, are purely speculative and even controversial in scientific circles, yet they are packaged and presented to the masses for political purposes, to make us believe that we all came from the same genetic cesspool.

I would point out to the reader that an understanding of genetics is of paramount importance, but there are those who twist it like a pretzel to fit their own agenda. Besides knowing about chromosomes and DNA, one should research: genotype, haplotype, genome, allele, SNPs, behavior genetics (sociobiology), and the numerous related subjects. Let’s now go to John 8:31-47 to see how Yahshua Christ dealt with the Edomite-jews:

31 Then said Yahshua to those Judaean [citizens who gave the impression they] believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. 33 They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free? 34 Yahshua answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. 35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. 36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. 37 I know that ye are Abraham’s seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you. 38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father. 39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Yahshua saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham. 40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of Yahweh: this did not Abraham. 41 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of [racially-mixed] fornication; we have one Father, even Yahweh. 42 Yahshua said unto them, If Yahweh were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from Yahweh; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. 43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. 44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning [i.e., Cain], and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. 46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? 47 He that is of Yahweh heareth Yahweh’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of Yahweh.” And at Hebrews 12:5-8 we read:

5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto sons, My son, despise not thou the chastening of Yahweh, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: 6 For whom Yahweh loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. 7 If ye endure chastening, Yahweh dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? 8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all [pure-racial Israelites] are partakers, then are ye bastards [born of race-mixed fornication], and not sons.”

That’s exactly what the Edomite-jews are; they are racially-mixed “bastards” and have more in common genetically with Esau and his Hittite wives than with Yahshua Christ, or the racially pure tribe of Judah!
