Ashkenazi Jews are Khazars, a tribe from southern Russia or not as the case may be. If they are not Semites their claim to Palestine, the Stolen Land which they call Israel is greatly weakened. The case for Jewish Semites is a poor one in the first place. King Abdullah of Jordan explained that in a very civilized manner in King Abdullah I on Zionism.
Arthur Koestler, who was an Ashkenazi Jew on his own account, says that the Ashkenazi Jews are Khazars who converted to Judaism, rather than Semites. Benjamin H. Freedman, a Jew who converted tells us the same in THE TRUTH ABOUT KHAZARS. The Wikipedia chooses to claim that they are not. Their critique is underneath and verbatim. The Wikipedia is an operation with an agenda. They want it to be thought of as unbiased. It often is until it gets to Zionists and their goings on. Then it becomes a propaganda weapon.
Jews Share Ancestors And DNA [ 10 June 2010 ]
A new study, the largest of its kind ever conducted, reveals that the Jewish people shares clear genomic significance. Apparently, the genetic similarity between a Jewish Italian and a Jewish Pole is larger than the similarity between Jewish Pole and a Christian Pole, for instance...........
Some 237 Jews of representing the three major Diaspora communities, including Ashkenazi Jews from throughout Europe, Sephardim, and Mizrahim from Syria, Iran, and Iraq, participated in the study............ The study found that Ashkenazim share genetic density that could suggest that most of them are ancestors of a small number of original mothers. The researchers noted that the level of relatedness among Ashkenazi Jews is similar to the level of relatedness between fifth-degree cousins.......... Genetic analysis from the study showed that two major groups of Jews, Middle Eastern Jews and European Jews, diverged nearly 2500 years ago.
Jews are basically one tribe. That is the message. It is not religious.
THE TRUTH ABOUT KHAZARS (the so-called Jews)
The Khazars were not "Semites". They were an Asiatic Mongoloid nation. They are classified by modern anthropologists as Turco-Finns racially. From time immemorial the homeland of the Khazars was in the heart of Asia. They were a very warlike nation. The Khazars were driven out of Asia finally by the nations in Asia with whom they were continually at war. The Khazars invaded eastern Europe to escape further defeats in Asia. The very warlike Khazars did not find it difficult to subdue and conquer the 25 peaceful agricultural nations occupying approximately 1,000,000 square miles in eastern Europe. In a comparatively short period the Khazars established the largest and most powerful kingdom in Europe, and probably the wealthiest also.
This is a quotation from Benjamin Freedman, a Jew who converted to Christianity. He clearly knows more about Jews than the average man and he spent a lot of time warning people about the dangers they pose.
QUOTE from the Wikipedia Ashkenazi
Alleged Khazar ancestry of Ashkenazim
The novelist [ He was much more than a mere novelist - follow their link for more and better details - Editor ] Arthur Koestler alleged in a book (in The Thirteenth Tribe), that modern Ashkenazi Jews are of Khazarian ancestry rather than Jewish. According to Bernard Lewis:
This theory... is supported by no evidence whatsoever. It has long since been abandoned by all serious scholars in the field, including those in Arab countries, where the Khazar theory is little used except in occasional political polemics.
DNA studies demonstrate that Ashkenazi Y-Chromosome Jews originated in Middle Eastern populations [ which are NOT necessarily Semite - Editor ], as has the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) of at least 40% of the current Ashkenazi population. So although Khazars might have been absorbed into the Jewish population it is unlikely that they formed a large percentage of the ancestors of modern Ashkenazim.
Another criticism that has been levelled against Koestler's work is that he largely appropriated his history from such sources as D.M. Dunlop, sometimes without proper attribution. [ This point is known as a non sequitur - Latin for it does not follow - historians DO say the same things about the same matters - Editor ] Moreover, it has been pointed out that his more speculative second half (discussing his theories about Ashkenazi descent) is largely unsupported; to the extent that Koestler referred to place-names and documentary evidence his analysis has been described as a mixture of flawed etymologies and misinterpreted primary sources.
Other critics of the Khazar-Ashkenazi theory have stated that the prime motive for even the small degree of acceptance of these ideas is because they have become political and anti-Zionist in nature. The Khazar theory has been adopted by many anti-Zionists, especially in the Arab world; such proponents of the theory argue that if Ashkenazi Jews are primarily Khazar in origin, then they would be outside the scope of God's promise of Canaan to Israelites as recorded in the Bible. This ignores, of course, the fact that the Biblical promise explicitly includes converts, and the fact that over half of Israeli Jews are not Ashkenazi. (see Demographics of Israel, Jewish exodus from Arab lands) Some have countered that such charges of a political motive are not relevant to the core of the argument; in any event, Koestler himself was emphatically pro-Zionist based upon secular considerations.
The Khazar claim has also served as a catalyst for state anti-Semitism in the Soviet Union and a justification for conquest by Russian nationalists. 
The Wikipedia's story has an interest. It claims that the Ashkenazi to Khazar link is made because it is politically convenient. It is true that people tend to use the facts that help their case. It also explains why the Wikipedia is pushing the opposite position. The Wikipedia likes to be thought of as an honest source. It does not like you to know that it was set up by Jews, is owned by a Jew and controlled by a Jew to serve Zionist purposes.
Semitic Language Area
In linguistics and ethnology , Semitic (from the Biblical "Shem") was first used to refer to a language family of largely Middle Eastern origin, now called the Semitic languages. This family includes the ancient and modern forms of Akkadian, Amharic, Arabic, Aramaic, Ge'ez, Hebrew, Maltese, Phoenician, Tigre and Tigrinya among others. Semitic speaking People (orange color) But that doesn't stop the Jews for the ownership of the words "Semite" and "anti-Semitic".
