Russian archaeologists said Wednesday they had found the long-lost capital of the Khazar kingdom in southern Russia, a breakthrough for research on the ancient Jewish state.
"This is a hugely important discovery," expedition organiser Dmitry Vasilyev told AFP by telephone from Astrakhan State University after returning from excavations near the village of Samosdelka, just north of the Caspian Sea.
"We can now shed light on one of the most intriguing mysteries of that period -- how the Khazars actually lived. We know very little about the Khazars -- about their traditions, their funerary rites, their culture," he said.
The city was the capital of the Khazars, a semi-nomadic Turkic peoples who adopted Judaism as a state religion, from between the 8th and the 10th centuries, when it was captured and sacked by the rulers of ancient Russia.
At its height, the Khazar state and its tributaries controlled much of what is now southern Russia, western Kazakhstan, eastern Ukraine, Azerbaijan and large parts of Russia's North Caucasus region.
The capital is referred to as Itil in Arab chronicles but Vasilyev said the word may actually have been used to refer to the Volga River on which the city was founded or to the surrounding river delta region.
Itil was said to be a multi-ethnic place with houses of worship and judges for Christians, Jews, Muslims and pagans. Its remains have until now never been identified and were said to have been washed away by the Caspian Sea.
Archaeologists have been excavating in the area if Samosdelka for the past nine years but have only now collected enough material evidence to back their thesis, including the remains of an ancient brick fortress, he added.
"Within the fortress, we have found huts similar to yurts, which are characteristics of Khazar cities.... The fortress had a triangular shape and was made with bricks. It's another argument that this was no ordinary city."
Around 10 university archaeologists and some 50 students took part in excavations in the region this summer, which are partly financed by the Jewish University in Moscow and the Russian Jewish Congress. _________________ 'Come and see the violence inherent in the system.

Still haven't see the BBC documentary about this

Zionists, Go Home!

Zionists, carry the star of David, that had never been David's, and go home. Leave the palestinians be, and the few Jews who lived peacefully with their Arabs brothers; Christians and Muslims. Thanks to documented history and archeology, your ugly mask has been removed, the veil torn, and the façade behind which you're hiding has become transparant.

The Jews of Khazaria recounts the eventful history of the Turkic kingdom of Khazaria, which was located in eastern Europe and flourished as an independent state from about 650 to 1016. As a major world power, Khazaria enjoyed diplomatic and trade relations with many peoples and nations (including the Byzantines, Alans, Magyars, and Slavs) and changed the course of medieval history in many ways. Did you know that if not for the Khazars, much of eastern Europe would have been overrun by the Arabs and become Islamic? In the same way as Charles Martel and his Franks stopped the advance of Muslims at the Battle of Poitiers in the West, the Khazars blunted the northward advance of the Arabs that was surging across the Caucasus in the 8th century.
The Khazar people belonged to a grouping of Turks who wrote in a runic script that originated in Mongolia. The royalty of the Khazar kingdom was descended from the Ashina Turkic dynasty. In the ninth century, the Khazarian royalty and nobility as well as a significant portion of the Khazarian Turkic population embraced the Jewish religion. After their conversion, the Khazars were ruled by a succession of Jewish kings and began to adopt the hallmarks of Jewish civilization, including the Torah and Talmud, the Hebrew script, and the observance of Jewish holidays. A portion of the empire's population adopted Christianity and Islam.
I have an old book, a KJV Bible and at the back it has maps and clearly printed is the area mentioned as Ashkenaz.
I took it to the Leamington Spa peace festival to show some people protesting on behalf of the Palestinians, a few of them were Ashkenazi and told me. Because as I was telling them about it one said your talking to two Ashkanazi now. So one said to the other, Oh look, this is our old home land. He went on to say about ( can't remember; Shlomo Sand I think ) about it all being a hoax about the Jewish race and Palestine being their old home land.
Kahzar is a little deceptive because it implies their all Turkish and other Asian people, when most don't look that much different to the average European.

It's also wrong because many Romans and Judah look like typical Europeans too (as can be seen from the Roman statues,) and hides the real identity of the people Israel. Mostly northern Europe and since then colonised elsewhere now. (It looks like a hoax also because the so called Royal family (who are Judah) who have intermarried with the Askenazi banksters are pale skinned and like nothing more than hiding peoples true identities to divide and conquer. The second video is wrong on that too because many pale skinned people were in Egypt too, a palace for King Zedekiah's daughter was built (ruins are still there) which is when the Babylonians (Romans) destroyed Judah took them as slaves and then destroyed Egypt. c.588 B.C.
"The palace, although now in ruins at Tel Defneh, is still known today as "Quasr Bint el Jehudi" which means "Palace of the Daughter of Judah", just as she prophesied in her book that it would be."
Don't forget the two fold meaning of Israel.
The word Israel means "Champion of God" and anyone who champions the Cause of God (the Cause of Good/Go[o]d) in the world is automatically an Israelite and grafted-in (Romans 11; Malachi 4) even if they are not racially a child of Jacob's.
Did you know that if not for the Khazars, much of eastern Europe would have been overrun by the Arabs and become Islamic?
Also forgets the fact that the Muslims intermarried with the Meccans (Catholics) who wrote the Hadith and eventually colonised all the way to Spain and Portugal.
Mohammed (peace be upon him) married Khadija, who was a Roman Catholic, when he was 25 and she was 40. Her cousin was called Waraquah and was also a Roman Catholic Meccan.
The most famous of Mohammed's four daughters was Fatima, after whom the Moslem conquerors named the place in Portugal.
"Israeli Professor Shlomo Sand talks to George Galloway about the Invention of Jewish People -"
And if you look at the history of all the above, its all about usurious trading and Land grabs (even within the nations, let alone nation to nation.) And we've missed the last chance of a real Jubilee, because the people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
Shlomo Sand has a new book out: (although he's not geopolitically aware, it seems)
"The Invention of the Land of Israel - book launch with Shlomo Sand | Frontline Club Talks"
Following the acclaimed and controversial The Invention of the Jewish People, Sand's pioneering new work The Invention of the Land of Israel deconstructs the age-old legends surrounding the Holy Land and the prejudices that continue to suffocate it.
The Invention of the Land of Israel dissects the concept of "historical right" and tracks the creation of the modern concept of the "Land of Israel" by nineteenth-century Evangelical Protestants and Jewish Zionists. This invention, he argues, not only facilitated the colonization of the Middle East and the establishment of the State of Israel; it is also threatening the existence of the Jewish state today.
