Inside Iran’s Expansionist Mindset

Twelver Shia theology prohibits offensive war but Khomeinists believe it allows terrorism which it peculiarly construes as defensive, so-called “resistance”. Khomeinist Iran has so far engaged in regional expansionism through proxies, i.e. Shiite militias. Iran also maintains a close relationship with the Sunni Muslim Brotherhood everywhere but in Syria, which is also expressed in Iran’sContinue reading “Inside Iran’s Expansionist Mindset”

The Apostasy of Sabbatai Zevi

Rabbi Sabbatai Zevi, the Sabbatean messiah, was forced to convert to Islam by the Ottoman Grand Vizier under threat of gruesome death. What is less known is that Sabbatai Zevi subsequently became Bektashi, in hence voiding his apostasy as the Bektashi order is one of nine denominations of core Median Judaism. This of course wasContinue reading “The Apostasy of Sabbatai Zevi”

How Should Median Judaism be Announced?

I discovered core Median Jewry c. 2002 and began publishing the evidence in 2014. I have made no effort to go public with my findings other than writing online and few others than governments and intelligence agencies are aware of my writings, especially since I have few readers among the general public in Israel. TheContinue reading “How Should Median Judaism be Announced?”

Khomeinism and Iranian Foreign Policy

Ayatollah Khomeini introduced a governing principle according to which Iranian national interests take precedence over sharia. This may seem surprising for an Islamist theocratic regime but can be observed in Iranian foreign policy for various parts of the world. Iran is completely silent on China’s Han colonization of Xinjiang and totalitarian policies of coerced assimilationContinue reading “Khomeinism and Iranian Foreign Policy”

A Revolution in Knowledge

“They shall neither harm nor destroy on all My holy mount, for the land shall be full of knowledge of the Lord as water covers the sea bed.” Isaiah 11:9 The historical rediscovery of Median Judaism and the common Sumerian origin of Judaism and Mandaeism will revolutionize the understanding of Judaism and Jewish history. BiblicalContinue reading “A Revolution in Knowledge”

The Danger of Messianism

The Jewish nation has a long history of failed messianisms, with usually profoundly tragic consequences for the Jews. The two-state illusion is different from the previous messianist movements in that the false messiah is not a person but an enemy government. The Palestinian Authority is not only Anti-Zionism incarnate but it is the most Anti-SemiticContinue reading “The Danger of Messianism”

Erdogan and the Derin Devlet

The Sabbatean-controlled Derin Devlet deep state domestic intelligence apparatus in Turkey has roots in the Young Turks regime, some of whose members were Sabbateans. The Young Turks originated in the then Ottoman city of Thessaloniki (now in Greece) which was also the center of the Sabbatean subdenomination of the Bektashi order, one of nine denominationsContinue reading “Erdogan and the Derin Devlet”

By Word of Mouth

Since the historical rediscovery of core Median Judaism less than a decade ago, the message that these denominations are Jewish has spread rapidly like a wildfire in the Middle East. Members of denominations of core Median Judaism (Alawites, Alevis, Alians, Bektashis, Druze, Khaksaris, Shabaks, Yarsanis and Yezidis) are increasingly aware of being Jewish and increasinglyContinue reading “By Word of Mouth”

Understanding the Sabbateans

While the Derin Devlet deep state domestic intelligence apparatus in Turkey is controlled by members of the Sabbatean subdenomination of Bektashism (one of nine denominations of core Median Judaism) is there no question that the Derin Devlet also effectively controls the Sabbatean community. No researchers obviously have access to the Sabbatean community other than ifContinue reading “Understanding the Sabbateans”

The Schism in Orthodox Judaism

There is an increasing schism in Orthodox Judaism and a trend by Haredi (Ultra-Orthodox) rabbis not to recognize conversions performed by many Modern Orthodox rabbis. This is already full-blown in Israel where Haredi rabbis refuse to recognize conversions performed by the Chief Rabbinate. Confusingly, the Israeli Chief Rabbinate nowadays has increasingly been dominated by HarediContinue reading “The Schism in Orthodox Judaism”

All Jews are Indigenous

Anti-Zionists claim that converts to Judaism are not genuine Jews. Contrary to all genetic science do Anti-Zionists claim that Ashkenazi Jews are all descended from “European” converts to Judaism. Genetic science in contrast has determined that Ashkenazi Jews are descended from a mixture of Levantines and Italians although Middle Eastern origin predominates genetically. Who wereContinue reading “All Jews are Indigenous”

Assad is a Traitor

Bashar al-Assad and his coterie of Alawite turncoats are now all well aware that Alawism is a form of Crypto-Judaism and that they themselves are in fact Jewish by religion, ethnicity and nationality. Yet they insist on being aligned with the Khomeinist forces of totalitarian religious imperialism against their own indigenous nation and people. SinceContinue reading “Assad is a Traitor”

What are the Secrets of Sabbateanism?

Why is Sabbateanism secretive? It is no secret that Sabbateans outwardly behave like secular Muslim Turks but within their own community practice a form of Kabbalistic Judaism. What is less known however is that the Sabbateans are members of the Bektashi order, one of eight denominations of core Median Judaism and practice Bektashism along withContinue reading “What are the Secrets of Sabbateanism?”

Why Israel Keeps Quiet on Median Jewry

The Israel government keeps absolutely silent on the question of core Median Jewry and core Median Judaism and some may wonder why? Most Median Jews in the Middle East would not be negatively affected by an official Israeli recognition of core Median Jewry as Jewish. However, the situation of those Median Jews who live asContinue reading “Why Israel Keeps Quiet on Median Jewry”

Sabbateans are Bektashis not Muslims

It is often claimed that the 100 000 Sabbateans of Turkey are a Jewish-Muslim hybrid community, yet nothing could be further from the truth as the Sabbateans practice both Bektashism (a denomination of core Median Judaism of the Northern Jurisdiction of Israel) and a form of Judaism of the Southern Jurisdiction of Judah. As suchContinue reading “Sabbateans are Bektashis not Muslims”

Sabbatai Zevi’s Feigned Apostasy

Rabbi Sabbatai Zevi (1626-1676) was the almost universally recognized Mashiach (messiah) of the Jewish people when the Grand Vizier in the name of the Ottoman Sultan confronted him and threatened him with death unless he agreed to convert to Islam. As a token acceptance of Islam did Zevi take a turban on his head. ItContinue reading “Sabbatai Zevi’s Feigned Apostasy”

Ghulat Beliefs are Peripheral in Median Judaism

Ghulat is Arabic for “extremists” and entails conferring divine or angelic status on Muhammad and his family, particularly on Ali. These exoteric “beliefs” are not Islamic by any standards and certainly do not confer or imply membership in the Islamic religion. Rather, this is precisely the point, as the purpose of being Ghulat is toContinue reading “Ghulat Beliefs are Peripheral in Median Judaism”

What Khamenei Really Thinks of Assad

Traditionally were the Alawites or the Nusayris as they were called until the 1920s known as “Ghulat” or so-called “extremist Shias”, meaning not Shias at all who pretended to believe that Ali was a divine incarnation, hardly an Islamic belief. This was part of the Pseudo-Islamic veneer of core Median Judaism to protect Median JewsContinue reading “What Khamenei Really Thinks of Assad”

Is Judaism Authentic Without Knowledge of Esoteric Judaism?

Knowledge of Esoteric Judaism is shared by small initiated elites in Haredi Orthodox Judaism, Sabbateanism, Mandaeism, denominations of core Median Judaism and possibly Shinto (whose practitioners are not halakhically Jewish because the Japanese are also Buddhists yet practice Median Judaism). Of course Esoteric Judaism (essentially neo-Sumerianism) is very different from Rabbinic Judaism, which is merelyContinue reading “Is Judaism Authentic Without Knowledge of Esoteric Judaism?”

The Zoroastrians are Jewish

Zoroastrianism is a form of Median Judaism. It is not part of core Median Judaism but as other forms of “secondary” Median Judaism is Zoroastrianism derived from core Median Judaism. Zoroastrianism has Kohanim but no Levites. Like other forms of Median Judaism beyond core Median Judaism is it highly syncretic. While it could be arguedContinue reading “The Zoroastrians are Jewish”

The Syrian Regime is on the Wrong Side of History

The “Alawite” Syrian regime has since many decades a policy of trying to Islamize the Alawite people which practices Alawism, one of seven denominations of core Median Judaism. The ethnically Alawite regime leaders are turncoats, thoroughly secular “Islamizers” who are enemies of their own people. In fact, Alawites are just as brutally oppressed as everyoneContinue reading “The Syrian Regime is on the Wrong Side of History”

How will Core Median Jewry React to Renunciation?

Clerical renunciation of syncretic (primarily pseudo-Islamic) aspects of denominations of core Median Judaism is an important aspect of the process of recognition, reunification and Aliyah (immigration to Israel). How then will ordinary core Median Jews (Alawites, Alevis, Alians, Bektashis, Druze, Yarsanis and Yezidis) react to religious renunciation by their respective clerical hierarchies? Core Median JewryContinue reading “How will Core Median Jewry React to Renunciation?”

Ghulat are not Islam

Ghulat (Arabic meaning ‘extremists’) is a term which today applies to most denominations of core Median Judaism. “Ghulat” refers to “Shia extremism” but Ghulat beliefs are neither Shia nor Muslim. How is it “Muslim” for example to believe that Ali (the cousin and son-in-law of Muhammad) is God or that God consist of a “Trinity”Continue reading “Ghulat are not Islam”

Will the Alawites Welcome Israeli Liberation?

Alawites have suffered attempted enforced Islamization since early Islamic conquest in the 7th century CE. The famous medieval Jihadist theologian Ibn Taymiyyah (1263-1328) claimed that the Alawites are “more infidel than the Jews and the Christians”. Alawites suffered terribly during the Ottoman period in French colonial rule coming as liberation for the Alawites. Alawite menContinue reading “Will the Alawites Welcome Israeli Liberation?”

The Desperate Plight of the Yarsanis

Yarsanism is one of the seven denominations of core Median Judaism. There are approximately 2 to 3 million Yarsanis and most live in Iranian Kurdistan with a significant community living in Iraqi Kurdistan. The Kurdish Yarsanis live in the southernmost part of Kurdistan. Most Yarsanis are Kurds although there are also small communities of Arab,Continue reading “The Desperate Plight of the Yarsanis”

Why Sabbatai Zevi was Excommunicated

Rabbi Sabbatai Zevi (1626-1676) was born in Smyrna in the Ottoman Empire and was a Sephardic rabbi of Romaniote (Judeo-Greek) origin who became almost universally recognized as the Mashiach (messiah) but was confronted by the sultan who demanded that he accept Islam or face death. As a token acceptance of Islam did Zevi in desperationContinue reading “Why Sabbatai Zevi was Excommunicated”

Will Median Jewry Want to Emigrate to Israel?

Jewish consciousness is spreading among adherents of core Median Judaism. All seven denominations (Alawism, Alevism, Alianism, Bektashism, Druzism, Yarsanism and Yezidism) are highly secretive with only small numbers of top clerics in each denomination having been initiated into the secrets of Esoteric Judaism. Yet as the message that Median Jews are indeed Jewish increasingly spreadsContinue reading “Will Median Jewry Want to Emigrate to Israel?”

The Ancient Bisection of Judaism

In 930 BCE was the United Monarchy of Israel divided into two separate kingdoms; the Northern Kingdom of Israel and the Southern Kingdom of Judah. This was the beginning of the division of Judaism – or Canaanite Atenism as it might be more appropriately described – into two realms of religious authority, the Northern JurisdictionContinue reading “The Ancient Bisection of Judaism”

Ending the Islamization of the Alawite People

While Syria’s former dictator Hafez al-Assad (1930-2000) was ethnically Alawite as is his son and successor as dictator Bashar al-Assad (b. 1965) have they both pursued Islamization policies which are basically anti-Alawite. Alawite pupils are forced to endure Islamic religious instruction in state schools and the regime built mosques in Alawite villages throughout the AlawiteContinue reading “Ending the Islamization of the Alawite People”

Is Ismailism Crypto-Judaism?

Early Sunni religious authorities widely refer to Shi’ism as founded by Jews and even today in Saudi Arabia is Shi’ism consensually considered to be Crypto-Jewish by Wahhabi religious authorities and in the educational system of Saudi Arabia. There are three surviving branches of Shi’ism, one of which, the Yemeni Zaydism is historically and in theContinue reading “Is Ismailism Crypto-Judaism?”

What about Genetics?

The rediscovery of Median Judaism and Median Jewry is a watershed event in Jewish history. However, members of denominations of core Median Judaism are primarily descended from ancient converts to Median Judaism and not from Israelites although they surely have some Israelite ancestry as well. But does genetics matter and does it still count asContinue reading “What about Genetics?”

The Process of Renunciation

A process of renunciation of syncretism with religious imperialism (and in particular syncretism with Islam) will be required as part of the process of official Israeli recognition of denominations of core Median Judaism and preparation for Aliyah (immigration to Israel) and in the case of the Druze and the Alawites the process of Israeli annexation.Continue reading “The Process of Renunciation”

Will there be a Jewish Fraternal War?

There are only two Jewish governments in the world, the one in Israel and the one in Syria. One is a liberal democracy and one is a totalitarian dictatorship. Will there be a war between the two or will the latter agree to peacefully dissolve?  As the Iranian nuclear weapons program rapidly advances far beyondContinue reading “Will there be a Jewish Fraternal War?”

Are Zoroastrians Jewish?

Zoroastrianism emerged from Median Judaism and is documented from the 5th century BCE as Zoroastrianism turned into religious imperialism. Zoroastrians have a Kohanite priestly caste but for some reason no Levite priestly tribe. This raises the question as to whether the Zoroastrians are Jewish? Is it a form of Median Judaism? Do they have secretContinue reading “Are Zoroastrians Jewish?”

Jewish Survival

One criterion as to whether a form of Judaism is genuine is whether it stands a chance of survival. While usually not explicitly spelled out is Jewish long-term survival the overriding criterion in halakhic decision making in contemporary Orthodox Judaism. The main reason non-Orthodox Judaism is condemned by Orthodox rabbis is primarily because it tendsContinue reading “Jewish Survival”

The Process of Recognition and Renunciation

While official Israeli government recognition of denominations of core Median Judaism as bona fide Judaism is important – so is core Median Jewish renunciation of syncretic elements as imported from religious imperialism and in particular in this era of religious imperialism from Islam. In fact should renunciation be prepared in advance with top religious leadersContinue reading “The Process of Recognition and Renunciation”

The Alawite People do not Control Syria

The Syrian regime is famously dominated by ethnic Alawites – Alawism being a denomination of Median Judaism – yet the Alawite people are, despite popular conception, not in control of Syria.  The Alawite people were ruthlessly suppressed and persecuted during Ottoman rule but became prominent in the military during the French period during which theyContinue reading “The Alawite People do not Control Syria”

Diversity of Median Judaism

All Jewish peoples have their own distinctive form of Judaism and it would not be intellectually honest to claim that Median Judaism is a single religion. There has been so much divergence, developments and geographic separation since the Assyrian deportations 27 centuries ago. Median Judaism is truly a world religion or rather a series ofContinue reading “Diversity of Median Judaism”

Median Jews are not Muslims

Islam is a religion with four branches, Sunni, Shia, Ibadi (in Oman) and Mutazili. There are four surviving schools (Arabic: madhhab) within Sunni Islamic jurisprudence (Arabic: fiqh). These are Hanafi, Hanbali, Maliki and Shafi’i. In addition are there the heterodox Sunni Ahmadiyya who believe that the expected Mahdi (messiah) has already arrived. Ahmadiyya are neverthelessContinue reading “Median Jews are not Muslims”
