Overview of Part 2
We have seen how the Askenazim traced their descent from the Khazars, and the Khazars in turn were the descendants of Gog and Magog.
From the Islamic perspective, Gog and Magog had already existed before the arrival of Dhul-Qarnayn at the mountain barriers of the Caucasus. When Dhul-Qarnayn met the people living there, they were beseeching him to protect them from the treachery and chicanery of Gog and Magog. This presupposes the existence of Gog and Magog before the arrival of Dhul-Qanayn on the scene. Let me reproduce again the relevant Quranic verse:
“[And he marched on] till, when he reached [a pass] between the two mountain-barriers, he found beside them a people who could scarcely understand a word [of his language]. They said: ‘O Dhul-Qarnayn, indeed Gog and Magog are spoiling this land. May we, then, pay unto thee a tribute on the understanding that thou wilt erect a barrier between us and them?’” [Quran, Alkafh (18): 92-94]
We can derive several conclusions from the above verse. These are:
- Gog and Magog were already in existence before Dhul-Qarnayn’s arrival at the Caucasus.
- The tribe beseeching help from Dhul-Qarnayn was not Gog and Magog. Instead they were the indigenous people there.
- After Dhul-Qarnayn had built an Iron Wall there, they lived peacefully for quite a long time, free from the mischiefs of Gog and Magog.
- In the early 7th Century of the Christian Era (CE), Gog and Magog appeared in this quarantined area in the form of the Kazaria Kingdom.
- This implies that the descendants of the indigenous tribe that had met Dhul-Qarnayn centuries Before the Christian Era (BCE) had been vanquished by the Khazars by the 7th Century CE.
At this point, a question arises: Who was the progenitor of Gog and Magog? The answer is Gog and Magog traced their descent from Yafith (Japheth), one of the sons of Prophet Noah (alaihi salam).
The great Muslim scholar, Ibn Kathir [born 1300 (701H), died 1373 (774H)], when discussing the origins of Yajuj wa Ma’juj – the people who traditionally inhabited the area between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea, which was where the Khazar Kingdom was originally situated – in his historical work, Al-Bidayah wa’l-Nihayah (The Beginning and the End), specifically states that “Gog and Magog are two groups of Turks, descended from Yafith (Japheth), the father of the Turks, one of the sons of Prophet Noah (a.s.).”
Some historians also believe that in addition to being the father (ancestor) of the Turks, Japheth is also the father of the Europeans. Some opine that the Scythians (a minor rival of the Greeks) who lived near the area in ancient times before even the time of Dhul-Qarnayn and who were descended from Japheth, were Gog and Magog.
By the time of Dhul-Qarnayn’s journey to the Caucasus, Gog and Magog was a conglomerate of nomadic tribes living near the Caucasus and known for being ruthlessly brutal, exclusively belligerent and skillfully talented at flattery, chicanery and treachery. Once Dhul-Qarnayn’s Iron Wall had been built, the playing and killing fields of Gog and Magog were very much restricted to the northern areas outside the one quarantined by the Wall; hence the ‘honorific’ title given to Khazaria as the Kingdom of the North.
Wave after wave of Gog and Magog…
And that’s why in all my post on the Askenazim, it has to be remembered that the waves of Gog and Magog I’m referring to are the ones after the Dhul-Qarnayn’s era especially in relation to the Islamic eschatology of the coming of Gog and Magog during the period preceding the End of History and the End of Time.
To recap, the first wave of Gog and Magog post Dhul-Qarnayn took the form of the Khazars whose appearance in the early 7th century CE (at about the same time of Muhammad’s prophethood) was prophesized by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in an authentic Hadith narrated by Zainab bint Jahsh (r.a): “… once the Prophet (pbuh) awoke from such a sleep that his face was red and he said: ‘There is none worthy of worship except Allah. Woe to the Arabs, from the great evil that is approaching them. Today a gap as big as this has opened up in the wall of Yajuj and Majuj …’ and the Prophet (pbuh) indicated the size of the hole by forming a ring with his index finger and thumb.” (Bukhari).
This first wave of Gog and Magog ended in the 9th century CE when the Kazars had to flee to Eastern Europe particularly Hungary, Poland and southern Russia from the onslaught of the Rus – an Asiatic tribe from Kiev – who destroyed and burnt to the ground the Kazaria Kingdom.
The second wave began in Europe when the remnants of the Khazars that were in Europe reinvented and transformed themselves into Askenazic Jews. This wave reached its zenith in the 18th century when an Askenazim – Rothschild – managed to monopolize the wealth of the world by means of flattery, chicanery and treachery via a cabal of his sons and descendants spread out throughout Europe.
The financial strength of the Rothschild combined with the political muscle of Zionism which was formed by other fellow Askenazi Jews in the 19th century were so formidable that it led to the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948 which in substance and essence is very different from the biblical ancient state of Israel.
The second wave of Gog and Magog ended with the establishment of the modern state of Israel in 1948. This is prophesized in the Quran when it made its second and last reference to Gog and Magog:
“And there is a ban on (the people of) a town which We destroyed (and the inhabitants were expelled) that they (the people of the town) shall not return (to reclaim the town) until Gog and Magog are released and they (eventually) descend from every height or spread in every direction.” [Quran, Al Anbiya (21): 95-96]
The above verse is very cryptic when it was first revealed in the time of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). This is so because the verse is in the nature of a prophecy (i.e. a future occurrence in 1948 in comparison to the 7th century when it was revealed).
The above verse clearly hints at a third return of the Jews in Jerusalem and must be read with the verse below in order to understand the third coming of the Jews in Jerusalem:
“And We gave warning to Banu Israil through revelation, that twice would they corrupt the (Holy) Land and be elated with mighty arrogance (and twice would they be punished)! When the first of the warnings came to pass, We sent you Our servants capable of terrible warfare. They entered the very inmost parts of your homes, and it was a warning fulfilled. And after a time We allowed you to prevail against them once again, and aided you with wealth and offspring, and made you more numerous. If you preserve in doing good you will but be doing good to yourselves; and if you do evil it will be done to yourselves. And so when the prediction of the second (period of iniquity) came true, (We raised new enemies against you and allowed them) to disgrace you utterly, and to enter the Temple as (their forerunners) had entered it once before, and to destroy with utter destruction all that they had conquered.” [Quran, Banu Israil (17): 4-7].
Even after the 1948 event had been fulfilled in the form the creation of the state of Israel, none of the Muslim scholars has ever interpreted the verse in this way until a contemporary Islamic scholar, Imran Hosein, in his book, Jerusalem in the Qur’an, published in 2002, interpreted it to mean that after the second expulsion of the Jews from Jerusalem in the 1st century CE (60 CE) in which the Temple there was destroyed a second time – this time by the Roman – the Jews will have a third opportunity to once again return to Jerusalem, but only with the assistance of Gog and Magog i.e. their release and eventual descent from every height or spread in every direction had facilitated this return.
Unlike their first two returns to the Holy Lands, their third return as elaborated by Benjamin Freedman (see Part 2 of this post) was preceded by their chicaneries and treacheries that had caused so much misery to the world in the spread of Communism since 1905, the continuation of World War I in 1916 and igniting World War II, just so that they can own a piece of real estate in the Holy Lands by expelling the Palestinians from their lands.
We are now living in the third wave of Gog and Magog in which their treachery and chicanery that were instrumental in their return to the Holy Land will deepen their mighty arrogance as manifested in the way they had brutalized and continue to brutalise the weakest segment of Palestinian society and subjugate the world into an elegance of silence on these atrocities.
Only Allah knows when this brutality of the Askenazic Zionists will end, as surely it will end, just like their first two returns had ended in their expulsion from the Holy Lands. My guess is this third wave of Gog and Magog will see the Askenazic Jews in Israel stooping so low and will stop at nothing in committing the worst kind of excesses and atrocities in Palestine until the whole world is brought to its feet by recognizing Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel (currently it is Tel Aviv). Up to this point, they had failed to make Jerusalem their capital. When their objective in making Jerusalem as their undivided capital is achieved, the stage is set for the fourth wave of Gog and Magog, which will see the Dajjal (Anti-Christ) entering the picture and playing a central role as the sole leader of Gog and Magog. I will touch on this at some other time based on some authentic Ahadith on Akhir Zaman.
p.s In Part Two, I have used a Jewish source (Benjamin Freedman) to highlight the havoc wreaked by Gog and Magog in Europe. The article below gives a good overview of this havoc from a Christian source. Read on…
By Biblicism Institute
The chosen Hebrews were the ones God had the Old Covenant with (not converted Jews). They’re all dead.
“The LORD was very angry with Israel, and removed them out of his sight… And the LORD rejected all the seed of Israel, and afflicted them, and delivered them into the hand of spoilers, until he had cast them out of his sight.” (2 Kings 17:18,20)
Today, the Ashkenazim constitute the majority of those who are known as Jews.
Since they are not Hebrews, it is very important to understand what the bible and history have to say about them while bearing in mind that:
- Abraham was a descendant of Shem – hence the term Semite or Shemite.
- His scion Jacob and his twelve sons were the true biblical Hebraic Israelite nation with whom God had the Old Covenant (not with converted Jews)
- The true Israelite nation no longer exists and their land inheritance expired with them.
This is what the Bible has to say about the Ashkenazim in Genesis 10:
“Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood. The sons of Japheth: Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras. And the sons of Gomer: ASHKENAZ, and Riphath, and Togarmah. And the sons of Javan: Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim. By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.” (Emphasis Added)
Today’s Ashkenazi Jews, or descendants of Ashkenaz, are some of the GENTILES the bible speaks of. Why then do Ashkenazim call Christians and other non-Jews Gentiles while pinning on themselves the term Chosen People? Is it ignorance or deception? It’s definitely not ignorance. And if to those outside it looks like deception, to them it’s pure re-branding. The ultimate Chutzpah!
Consider the terrible irony!
Ashkenazic Jews (along with their Sephardic coreligionists) are themselves the Gentiles that many rabbis warn their congregations not to marry. To further the re-branding, they also call themselves Semites or Shemites when they’re JAPHETITES, which means they’re not Hebrews either. This re-branding is much like the way most of them – if not the majority of them – keep changing their last names every time they settle in a new country. The reason is simple and quite pragmatic. It’s a survival mechanism.
The Askenazim are a resilient roaming Turkic people. They have a knack for reinventing themselves. They first surfaced in world annals as the notoriously barbaric Scythians or Sakadeans depending on regional phonetic.
“Here there is no Gentile or Judahite, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all.” (Colossians 3: 11)
The word Scythian or Sakadean comes from the word Saka – with its Iranian verbal root Sak meaning to roam.
The Scythians settled in Central Eurasia which they conquered with their Gentile brother Togarmath and various other cousins expanding across a vast track of land that encompassed but was not limited to parts of present-day Turkey and Iran. Their Gentile brother Riphath along with their uncle Javan’s descendants settled in Greece.
Later on, they reinvented themselves and settled a land they would call Khazaria – from the word Qasar with its Turkic verbal root Qaz meaning to roam – following the break-up of the western Turkish Steppe Empire. Then, the country converted en masse to Judaism/ Pharisaism sometime between 740 and 920 AD just so they could remain independent of the two competing empires of that time: Christianity and Islam.
“Judaism was the most actively proselytizing religion…The most significant mass conversion occurred in the 8th century, in the massive Khazar kingdom between the Black and Caspian seas,” explained Jewish historian Shlomo Sand.
Then, Sviatoslav I of Kiev destroyed Khazaria around 1048 and absorbed it into Kievan Rus’, a territory that would later become part of the Russian Empire.
In Imperial Russia, the Ashkenazim were kept under tight control and enclosed in the Pale of Settlement. Something the Ashkenazim never forgave Russia.
Biding their time, they nurtured their hatred and plotted their revenge along with a new reinvention. They became the power behind the heinous Bolsheviks who took over the Russian government in the 1910s and killed 66 million Christians including 200,000 members of the Christian clergy, and destroyed 40,000 churches according to famed Christian Russian writer Alexander Solzhenitsyn.
The great majority of the Bolsheviks were Russian Askenazi Jews such as Vladimir Lenin, Leon Trosky, Lev Kamenev, Gregory Zinoviev, Yakov Sverdlov, and Grigory Sokolnikov. They were financed by Ashkenazi bankers from New York and London such as Rothschild Bank and Jacob Schiff of Kuhn and Loeb & Co. who themselves championed the destructive ideology of the Ashkenazi Karl Marx and found it profitable to invest in Communism’s disastrous conquest of Russia while making a few bucks in the process by plundering the country via well placed agents who would later be known as “oligarchs“.
“You must understand, the leading Bolsheviks who took over Russia were not Russians. They hated Russians. They hated Christians. Driven by ethnic hatred they tortured and slaughtered millions of Russians without a shred of human remorse. It cannot be overstated. Bolshevism committed the greatest human slaughter of all time. The fact that most of the world is ignorant and uncaring about this enormous crime is proof that the global media is in the hands of the perpetrators.”
– Alexandr Solzhenitsyn
Russia’s entire Soviet Empire collapsed in 1991. Thus the Ashkenazim succeeded in bringing Russia to its knees.
Revenge Round 1. Done.
Today, Russia is under fire for the conflict in Ukraine. A conflict that was started by the Ashkenazi Victoria Nuland in the US State Department with her neo-con Ashkenazi husband Robert Kagan working in the background via powerful organizations such as Project for a New American Century, the Brookings Institution, and Council on Foreign Relations. The Ashkenazi George Soros also contributed financially to the Ukrainian Maidan “Revolution”.
Their sole purpose is to destroy Russia once again by starting a fire in its underbelly, Ukraine. A fire they’re planning to spread into Russia proper via military and economic warfare. Why? Because Russia has had the gall to rise from its still warm Ashkenazi-induced ashes. And because Russia has had the temerity to arrest their well placed thieving agents known as “oligarchs” with some fleeing the country. And because Russia has had the audacity to impede the American war on Syria which was orchestrated by AIPAC for the benefit of Israel.
Revenge Round 2. In progress.
After the destruction of Khazaria, the Ashkenazim scattered East and West throughout Europe and reinvented themselves as Errant Jews or Wandering Jews – meaning Roaming (Khazarian/Sakadean or Scythian) Jews. That label had nothing to do with a longing for Palestine but a longing for Khazaria or perhaps a longing for a new land, any new land. Here’s an excerpt from Wikipedia:
In 1903 Theodore Herzl presented the British Uganda Program at the Sixth Zionist Congress in Basel.
In the late 1930s, the British Zionist League considered a number of other places where a Jewish homeland could be established. The Kimberley region in Australia was considered until the Curtin government (in office: 1941–1945) rejected the possibility.
With the support of the then Premier of Tasmania, Robert Cosgrove (in office from 1939), Critchley Parker proposed a Jewish settlement at Port Davey, in south west Tasmania. Parker surveyed the area, but his death in 1942 put an end to the idea.
The Jewish Autonomous Oblast set up in the Russian Far East in 1934, represented a Soviet approach to providing a Jewish homeland.
In the wake of World War 2, a great number reluctantly assimilated themselves throughout the Americas. However, the great majority migrated to Palestine where they created many terrorist groups such as the Irgun, the Stern gang and Haganah. They terrorized the Palestinian population, killed thousands upon thousands and forced hundreds of thousands out of their homes and into neighboring Arab countries. Consequently, they stole Palestine and renamed it Israel in order to reinvent themselves as Hebrews and hoodwink gullible Christians in the West.
In their adoptive countries outside of Israel, including the US and Europe, the Ashkenazim have become financial and influential powerhouses, not because they’re Jews – at heart the majority of them are really not religious at all and couldn’t care less – but because they’re a shrewd people. They have learned much from their roaming throughout history and they assimilate themselves fast and hard. They’re the ultimate Nomads.
Now could it be that, after two successive ideological failures in the forms of Communism and the current slow-motion destruction of Zionism in Israel, somewhere deep inside the minds of die-hard Ashkenazi leaders lies a plan for a new reinvention? Will that reinvention be the re-conquest of their Khazar Khaganate, a land that is now situated deep inside Russia and encompasses Ukraine and Crimea? Is that why Putin suddenly reattached Crimea to Russia? Will they be okay with just Ukraine?
Revenge Round 3? Jamais deux sans trois.
It seems that people today have forgotten that Ancient Israel, specifically the tribe of Judah, unlike Modern Israel and much like Biblical Israel’s offspring, the Christian Church, was a proselytizing nation which wanted people all over the world to know and pray to the true God of the Universe, even though at one point the conversion process had become totally corrupted because of the pharisaic teachings. Let’s hear Jesus:
“Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.” Matthew 23:15
When these folks converted they didn’t miraculously become Judahites and Hebrews. How could anyone? The Ashkenazim of Khazaria like all the others who converted to the religion of the ancient Judahites only professed to adhere to the various rules of the faith. They maintained their own cultures and identities. Today they are known as Talmudic Jews and Torah Jews. See The Word Jew is NOT in the Bible.
The story of the Ashkenazi Khazars is detailed in the book The Thirteenth Tribe, a historical account by Jewish author Arthur Koestler. Enjoy the book by clicking on this link: The 13th Tribe.
