To the Origins of Europeans and Jews
According to some scientists (please click red words for references), large parts of the so-called “European” or “Caucasian” civilisations, including the Indo-European languages, originally come from the area between the Caucasus and the Volga (Caspian and Pontic steppe). Ashkenazi Jewry, deriving from the ancient Khazars can also be traced back to that same area. I embarked on an overland trip from the Caspian Sea and the Caucasus to Central Europe, following in the footstep of our ancestors, to learn more about our history, on a road trip from East to West <— :
This itinerary corresponds almost exactly with European Route 50 6.000 km long from Machackala at the Caspian Sea to Brest at the Atlantic – as I found out on my way.
The Völkerwanderung is usually described as a migration period of Germanic peoples from East to West, pushed forward by climatic changes and / or enemies from the Asian steppes like the Huns. In another Völkerwanderung view, this migration is rather seen as invasions of joint Turko-Gothic forces. In a more delicate interpretation, the invading steppe forces were manipulating with an “invisible Hand” to subdue sheeplike resident peoples into “nation building” (nat = snake = symbol of rebirth).
F: Invasion by “Barbarians”.

Jewish Author Arthur Koestler’s famous book “The Thirteenth Tribe” describes how the Turkish Khazars from the Caspian Steppe adopted Judaism in 740BC and later migrated westward to build large Jewish communities in Eastern Europe and smaller ones in Western Europe. Another Jewish author Shlomo Sand confirms Koestler’s position in his book “The Invention of the Jewish People”. It all started in the city of Samandar …
The first major city of the Khazars was located in ancient Samandar (Turkish: Salamander, Newt, Basilisik), at the bottom of the Caucasus in the Caspian depression, then famous for it’s vineyards, nowadays called Kizlyar (Turkish: “secret place”, “red place”. (May also be Qirmizi Qasaba = Red Slaughterhouse.) Compare Azeri: Khizi. Italian: Gissin. German: Kissing, Gysi, Kieselstein, Kies = money) in Dagestan, mainly inhabitated by the modern Avars. Coincidentally, this is the most easterly point the Germans reached in WW 2 (with rail sabotage commandos).
F: Kizlyar – former Khazar city of Samandar (Salamander, today: secret red place)
Atilla is from Atil = Volga
The next important Khazar city Atil was located on an island in the Volga Delta. Atil, also spelled Itil or Aetil was the hometown and final retreat of Atilla’s – the legendary Hun’s – troops who fought westward until the Battle at the Catalaunian Fields (Verdun !). His supposed burial place still is a secret. Atil is the Turkic name for the Volga. The Volga steppes are home to the horse (At), dog (It, HUNd) and early horseback civilisations. Atilla is also found as Etzel in ancient Germany’s Nibelungenlied, describing invisible powers attained through Alberic’s cap (similar to the ring of Solomon or Gyges), or in today’s Israel as a colloquial name for the Irgun.
F: A Volga island (ancient Atil?) in today’s Astrakhan seen from Al-Pash Hotel
Atil may have founded the At(i)lantis myth. A major flooding took place in the Caspian depression towards the Black Sea, both freshwater lakes until the Bosphorus breakthrough, thereby fueling one myth that is present in tales such as the Gilgamesh Epos, the Hindu Mana, the Quran or the biblical Noah’s Ark.

Rha = Volga in Scythian
Atilla’s Huns were predominantly Caucasian and not of Mongoloid features (otherwise there would be plenty of Mongoloid people in Europe) and their ancestors can be traced back to the Scythes, famous for their gold … and their warfare. They may have had some input from the Xionists, differentiated into White Xions and Black or Red Xions (but hunnic) by the Indians and Persians, probably in a line with the Ju Ju (wiggling worms), Yuezhi, Kidari, Kii (-> Khiva, Kiev), Kozarigs, Khazars, and later Avars. The first commander ever to defeat such nomadic steppe armies was Alexander the Great at the Battle of Jaxartes in Central Asia. People of the West were Celtoi, of the East Scythoi. The Scythes common weapon and tool was the scythe, also known as the harvesting instrument of the grim-reaper. The Scythian name for the Volga was Rha, similar to Rhine, Rhone, Rinnsal, raunen.
F: The grim-reaper with his scythe. S: Wikipedia
From Scythians to Khazars
Scythian certainly is a predecessor to the later Turkish / Magyar / Khazar tribes who continously attacked Western Europe in between the Huns and the Ottomans, in particular at the Battle of the Lechfeld in Southern Germany’s Bavaria, when the captured Hungarian / Kabarian / Khazarian warlord Lehel killed the German leader with his horn and claimed: ‘ “You will walk before me and serve me in the other world” as it is a common belief [ ASPD ] within the Scythians, that whoever they killed in their lives will serve them in the other world. ‘ (Quote: Wikipedia). Note below picture with a Khazar in pointed Jewish hat assisting Lehel during his attack. A first hint that early Turks, Magyars and Khazars (often collectively called Tatars from Tat = Snake or Tartaros = Hell or Saracens) were within one and the same group conquering Central Europe from the Eastern steppes against all defensive efforts. Coinicidentally, after Irgun/Etzel, Israel’s second terror group is called Lehel / Lehi, with a monument in Petah Tikva. Compare with Spock’s vulcanic greeting of the Kohanim. According to extremely old excavated Tablets of Hungarian city Tartaria, Magyars are connected to ancient Sumer / Nimrod.
F: Khazar King Lehel killing Duke of Bavaria, co-creating Germany’s Holy Roman Empire (and Munich suburb “Lehel”). S: Wikipedia
From Khazars to Khavars
Part of the Khazars, like Lehel, were named Khavars (Kabars) who were said to have great strength (Semitic: Kabir = Great) from eating Kaviar of the Caspian sturgeon (a stemcell nourishment). There is a link from the Khavars via the Kabiroi and the Habiru (Hittite = looter, outlaw) to Turkic Evren/Ebren (Universe/Dragon) and Hebrew – and to a secret society worshipping the Phrygian mother goddess from Mount Kabeiros. Who maybe played a larger role in nation (from nat=snake) building of Russia, Ukraine, Magyar, Polish, German (Arab Spain and Norman English) lands, than one expects from mainstream history. A link back is from Abraham via Avar to Khabar. Coincidentally Khabarovsk is situated near the Jewish Autonomous Republic, created by Stalin, in an area known as Manchu … where maybe the Cumans came from?
Early Jewish tribes: Khazar = Caspian Sea. Khavar = Khabur River. Khalyziones = Aral Sea. (?)

Within the Scythian territory, there seems to have been an independent tribe called Melanchlaeni (“black coats”) right between the Volga and the Don – the later Khazar center.

The Khazarian Way
The Khazars desribed themselves as descendants of Togarmah through Noah’s son Japheth (meaning a Turkic nomadic people, as opposed to being descendants of Noah’s Sem-itic or Ham-itic sons). Hasar was son of Dzenghis Khan, brother of Jochi. There were Black (“Kara”) Khazars and White (“Ak”) Khazars. Al-Khazar also means fortress in Arab. Hisar is fortress in Turk, a Kale is a castle. Obviously Chateau and Kastell are direct linguistic neighbours, all going back to Khazar. Compare with the Norman’s later White Tower of London, the Juliusturm and many Hexenturm in medieval Germany.
The Khazars became known for three aspects:
1) for their adoption of Judaism
2) as long-distance traders, the Rhadanites
3) for their taxation of travellers using the Khazarian Way, an overland portage for ships between the Volga and Don rivers.
F: The Khazarian Way (center), boats carried on a portage from Don to Volga (against a tax). S: Arthur Koestler
The Rhadanites = Dan tribe from Rha ?
Ancient Hebrew is equal to semitic Phoenician and got extinct more than 2.000 years ago, whereas modern Hebrew, aka Ivrit, is an artificial 20. Century Indo-European language. In any case, the Hebrew alphabet has been in continued use by the Khazars, as well as in the (extinct) Western German-Yiddish (probably rather derived from Gothic, compare coincidence of Gothic script & Gothic architecture in Central Europe and Goetia = Horror), Eastern Slavic-Yiddish (incl. Canaanic) and in modern Israeli Ivrit. Compare also the link from Gothic to Turkish runes (damgas).
There is a theory that the Dan tribe is responsible for naming the rivers Danube, Dniestr, Dniepr, Donets and Don. This indicates a seafaring, maybe Phoenician / Venetian origin of the long-distance-trading Rha-dan-ites, such as the Denyen and corresponds with the Celtic origin legend of the Tuatha de Danaan.
The Rhadanites trade in slaves and salt (monopoly) started before Roman times, as the word salary (Latin: Salarium), derived from the money-like salt explains.
Please compare Abraham Firkovich’s view on the Karaite (Black) Turkish Jews with Mountain Jews and the so-called “Red Jews behind Gog and Magog (Caucasus) at the Sambation River (Sambat = Kiev)” for example on Walsperger’s World Map.
F left: Seal of the Tribe of Dan (Remphan = Moloch = Saturn = Black Cube = Black Sun?)
F right: Detail on Walsperger’s Map (1449)
Dan = Children of the Phoenicians ?
The Dan, Denyen and Phoenicians (and others) have at times been “accused of pagan practices” like the tophet or moloch where children were burnt as ritual sacrifice to Tanit or captured / consumed as “blood toll”. See also the apocryphical prophet Daniel and the Revelation of John (e.g. in the Bamberg Apocalypse or at the Kindlifresser Brunnen in Bern). This unappetising subject is often labelled as “black propaganda of victors” but finds itself not only in the Bible but also in surprisingly many modern instances:
F 1: Coat of arms of Sanok (Chinese roots; near Premyszl)
F 2: Pruzhany (near Brest)
F 3: “Biscione” of Milan, Lombardy, Bellinzona, Alfa-Romeo, Sforza family
F 4: Bamberg Apocalypse (around 1000): “And behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns upon his heads, and his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman to give birth, so that, when it was born, devour her child “(Rev. 12:3 b-4).
What Children tales from the Caucasus (don’t) tell us
The Rhadanites dominated the Europe-bound trade westwards, in particular the trade of slaves (hence the name Slavic), in a profession sometimes called “steppe harvesting” of Saqaliba, Eunuchs, Ghilman, Janissary, Mamluk … But also legends like the Pied Piper of Hamelin or the Children Crusade are likely about child abductions for slavery (devsirme = blood toll) or worse. Boys were often castrated en-route in Verdun and then sold, just like the girls, to the Califates of Cordoba or Cairo. Other clients were Ottoman Istanbul and China.
Many fairy tales are originally from the Caucasus (Circassia, Koh Kav) and their folklore dances today still show fairies dancing. There is however a more sinister meaning hidden behind children tales, lullabies and games. I learnt about the not-so-childish connection from the Caucasus to Central Europe when a friendly but crazy borderguard sang a song to us called “Cemberli, Cemberli” which translates to the English “Ring o Ring (of Roses)” or the German “Ringelringelreihen” or the Italian “Giro Giro Tondo”, always with presumed occult meanings of child slavery, sacrifice or plague. We will later see how the “carousel” relates to the Turkish word for the Ufa River (Karaidzel) and horse taming / swhirling on a rope.
F: Vainakh borderguard sings children song
Khazars from Sarkel = Saqsin = Sarai = Tsaritsyn = Stalingrad = Volgograd
The Khazar capital was in the area of modern-day Volgograd, first in Sarkel (now submerged in the Volga-Don-Canal), meaning Sari Kale = “yellow fortress” in old Chuvash Turkish, maybe identical with Saqsin, later in Sarai (or Sarai-Batu), the largest city in medieval times, during Saracen (Saryshin=blond) = Cuman = Kipchak/Pollovcks = Golden Horde = Ulus of Juchi = “Jochi Khasar” (Flag: Yoke) and always one of the most important stops on the Silk Road and Volga trade route. The Volga-Don area remains one of the most important military strategic locations in the world, as testified by the biggest ever Battle of Stalingrad in World War II.
(Coincidence with the other end of this road trip, Verdun ?)
F: Volga from Stalingrad’s War Memorial on Mamayev Hill
From Khazars to Saracens
The Saracens are usually located in the Palestinian, Arab and Maghrebinian realm, however the etymology of the name is disputed. The best theory is that the Saracens come from a pre-Islamic Tsaritsyn (= Stalingrad), probably initially Sarai-Cin, and were the target of early Byzantine encounters, the Vikings’ Serkland and maybe later Northern European crusades such as the Teutonic Orders. One wonders if the crusaders were really targeting the holy land of Jerusalem?! Or rather the Ismaili Saracen Assassins joined by Hooligans (Hassan Sabah via Hulagu to Aga Khan)?
History made Saracen universal for Muslim “infidels” such as Saladin, but distinct from Juda.
From Khazars to Scandinavians
Thor Heyerdahl considered the ancestry of Scandinavian rulers and Nordish gods like Odin (adin = 1 in Russian) to derive from the Aesir who migrated from the Don-Caucasus area (and who likely gave name to “Asia”). Felice Vinci in his book “The Baltic Origins of Homer’s Epic Tales” suggests that Odyssee’s Achaeans / Danaans migrated exactly the other way from a Nordic Ithaca and Troy to the Caspian and Caucasus. I would think it possible that the Khazar’s met the migrants and myths of the Goths in the Caspian / Crimea. Tt may also have been Phoenicians who sailed to the North and then back to the Orient.
There may be dispute about many of these theories, but it can’t be denied that a striking number of roads lead not to Rome, but to Rha … to the Volga !
F: Troyan Horse at Truva, Turkey. S: Wikipedia. Troy of Odysseus’ / Ulysses’ Danaans may be in Scandinavia. Troyan Horse may be an allegory for a stratagem of an invisible group hidden within steppe warriors on horseback.
Goths and Khazars
Goths were an early host for Khazars’ (predecessors). Not only is there the linguistic link between Gothic and Yiddish, the comparable expression in architecture, clothing and black colour (Kara-Khazars, Melanchlaeni), but also the shared migration mythology. Confirmed by Jordanes book Getica and in the Legend of Theoderic the Great aka Dietrich von Bern (here: Bern = Verona = Bernstein).
The Gothic settlement area after the migration from Scandinavia is known as the Kingdom of Oi (Wielbark and Chernyakov cultures, also called “Gothic Scythia”) with a King Gizur in their capital city A(var)rheimar at the Dnieper (Kiev), which corresponds with later Hun, Khazar and Yiddish areas:
F: Goth Kingdom of Oi. “Orange: Chernyakhov culture, red: Wielbark Culture, dark pink: Gotland, green: Götaland, dark blue: Roman Empire.” S: Wikipedia
The name “deutsch” derives from theodisk, defined in Wulfila’s earliest bible in Gothic language as the general masses who were not Jewish. The Golem: the goy (cattle) is made of lehm (mud), a useful idiot like the general masses (theodisk, tysk, tedesco, teuto, teuton, tuatha, (i)diot, douch, deutsch), dumb and numb (nemec, niemcy, arab: ajan) like the Germans (germs) or general public (all men = Allemand, Alman, Alemannen).
There is an elaborate fries at the Walhalla explaining migration of the (Gothic) Germans from the Caucasus. German formed a Sprachbund with Slavic and Turk ! Initially in runes !
Vikings and Khazars
The Viking traders travelled eastwards, all the way to Central Asia and Iran – by ship through the Caspian Sea! They “first penetrated to the Muslim areas adjacent to the Caspian Sea as traders rather than warriors. By the early 9th century, the Norsemen settled in northwestern Russia … From there, they began trading with the Byzantine Empire along the Dnieper trade route and with the Muslim lands around the Caspian Sea along the Volga trade route. In the late 9th century … the Rus’ [were] buying goods from the Khazars … on the lower Volga and selling them on the markets of Caspian towns; these merchants brought furs, honey, and slaves. Small groups … even went on camels as far as Baghdad …; their European slaves interpreted for them.” Source: Wikipedia

On these maps, the CAUCASUS IS CENTER OF THE WORLD, whereas mainstream geography conditions us that the world ends at the Caucasus. On maps of Alexander the Great’s times, or Ancient Rome, or the Holy Roman Empire, or the Cold War, it seems that East of Germany there is a “terra incognita”.
From Khazars to …
The Genoese, in the 13th to 15th century, still called their colonies in the Crimea by the name Gazaria. Medieval practices around the Witches Sabbath were described in the Errores Gazariorum. Until today, some important geographic names carry the Khazar heritage, such as “Hazar Deniz” meaning the Caspian Sea in Turkish, or “Azerbaijan”. According to some interpretations, the Khazars gave birth to many other words, like: Gas, Hazard, Hasardeur, Hate, Ketzer, Hetze, Hexer, Katzengold, Cathars, Corsair, Cursor, Ghazi, Hatz, Razzia, Guggenmusik / Chatzemusig, Gazette, and even the nocturnal moth Chazaria Incarnata or Briseis (Berghexe in German).

From Khazars to Caesarian
Sarkel, Sarikale, Sarai later changed name to become Tsaritsyn, Stalingrad and Volgograd. Stalin chose this city to carry his name, as it relates directly to the mythical roots of the Tsars. An honorific title more commonly known in Roman language as Caesar (pronounced kaesar) or in German Kaiser. This etymology can be traced back to the “Khazars” if one doesn’t follow the official dictum that Khazar derives from Turkic “gezmek = wander” but rather from Turkic “kesmek = cut” which becomes clear in the word Caesarian section where Caesar Augustus himself was thought to be cut from his mother’s womb, or in a name like Mario Kassar (Hollwood producer “Rambo/First Blood”) or Davit Keserashvili (Georgian minister, “son of the Khazar” – compare Josip Dzhugashvili STALIN, “son of the Jew”)).
The cutting may have been the opening (and re-sewing) of sturgeon from the Volga for the harvesting of Kaviar. Another explanation would be the cutting of foetuses from mothers’ wombs, for war cruelty or for “satanic” rituals or as stemcell nourishment, and probably the reason for Western European’s fears of Atilla the Hun, depicted as the Scourge of God or Flagellum Dei. And potentially “superior” physiological development?
The Caesar / Khazar connection goes back to the origin myth of Caesar’s family, the Gens Iulia via Ascania (Ashkenazi), to Albania – which was then located in the Caucasus. Caesar won an important battle in his civil war by help of Hasmonean Jewish ruler John Hyrcanus (Hyrcania being at the Caspian Sea). Virgil, in the Aeneid, had the abandoned Dido accuse Aeneas: “You had neither a goddess for a parent, nor was Dardanus the author of your race, faithless one, but the horrible Caucasus produced you from hard crags, and Hyrcanian tigers nursed you.” Some see an occult connection between the Gens Iulia’s Roman origin myth of Romulus and Remus being fed by a wolf, the later defamatory Judensau, and the male sow (German: Eber) / Celtic: Ebero = yew tree, Eibe / Eburones / Habiru.

From Khazars to Mol(o)ch
Moloch is the all-consuming fireplace (holokausteon), sometimes in the shape of a golden bull or an owl, that children were ritually sacrificed in (by early Hebrews, Babylonians, Phoenicians, Punics, Carthaginians, to Tanit / Tunis / Tophet, Saturn / Satan, Cronus, Baal, Hammon, etc.).
There stands in their midst a bronze statue of Kronos, its hands extended over a bronze brazier, the flames of which engulf the child. When the flames fall upon the body, the limbs contract and the open mouth seems almost to be laughing until the contracted body slips quietly into the brazier. Thus it is that the ‘grin’ is known as ‘sardonic laughter,’ since they die laughing. (trans. Paul G. Mosca)
The salamander is also mentioned in the Talmud (Hagiga 27a) as a creature that is a product of fire, and it relates that anyone who is smeared with its blood will be immune to harm from fire. Rashi (1040–1105), the primary commentator on the Talmud, describes the salamander as one which is produced by burning a fire in the same place for seven years. Saint Augustine in the City of God used the example of salamanders to argue for the possibility of humans being punished by being burned in eternal flame in Purgatory. Of all the traits ascribed to salamanders, the ones relating to fire have stood out most prominently. This connection probably originates from a behavior common to many species of salamander: hibernating in and under rotting logs. When wood was brought indoors and put on the fire, the creatures “mysteriously” appeared from the flames. The 16th-century Italian artist Benvenuto Cellini (1500–1571) famously recalled witnessing just such an appearance as a child in his autobiography. According to some writers, the milky substance that a salamander exudes when frightened and which makes its skin moist gave rise to the idea that the salamander could withstand any heat and even put out fires.
From Khazars to Crime(a)
Interestingly, the Crimea (another history making hot spot like Stalingrad and Verdun) owes its name to Turkish “kirim = butchery, massacre” … later to be found in “crime” and “criminal”.
Standing in front of Chufut Kale (Jew Castle) in Crimea, I started to understand the long etymological chain from Shifta (Kisuaheli/Arab: bandit) to Schuft (German: gangster) to Schufut (Dutch: owl) to Chufut Kale (Krim Tatar: Jew Castle) to Cift (Turkish: double) to Juif (French: Jew) to Ju-Ju (Old Chinese: Avar / War people, “wriggling worms”) to Shuv (Hebrew: “once again” or “return!”, an allusion to the main principle of Zionism, undoubtedly related to German: schaffen = create, and schuften = work like a slave). Shuv = the kabbalistic “Union of Opposites”!
From Khazars to Big Heads (“Grosskopferte”)
Atilla’s Huns underwent cranial deformation to become dolicocephalic (long-headed), just as the Burgundians (Attila’s allies in the Nibelungenlied), Croesus (inventor of coin money in Lydia), Midas (with donkey-ears in Phrygia, therefore the Phrygian Cap) and Akhenaton (founder of monotheism in Ancient Egypt, probably under the Yuksos’ (“foreigners”, Denyen ?) reign, but power lost by his son Tutanhkamun, born as Tutankhaton, possibly stimulating the story of Moses’ exodus from Egypt’s capital Avaris.
F: Coin “Atila Flagelum Dei”. S: Wikipedia
From Khazars via Avars to Dragon Kings
Why the Khazars apparently came after the Caesars can only be explained with non-mainstream theories like Illig’s or Fomenko’s new chronologies. A similar time question arises from the Avars, who gave name to the earlier (?) Latin avaritia = greed, but also as Avraham (Avar home) to Avrupa/Evrupa/Europe !!! And the Auerochs (Gaur, Kaffernbüffel), Bauer and Bavarians. They also carried swastikas. (Compare Latin: Habemus, or Bavarian: “Haber-er”, or Turkish: Haber = News, or in Russian Avar: = Obri (Obrigkeit)).
Another hint comes from the history of the Roman Empire which never managed to expand further east than Dacia, where Emperor Trajan fought the Dacian Dragon (and whereby the Romanian Dacia is almost certainly related to the former Bactrian Daxia) … aka as the Tatzelwurm, the Draco, the serpent (see Dan-logo or Tat(ar) name ), the snake, the lizards, the sauromats, the Salamander, Naga/Nazi/Natter/Nakh, the Basilisk, or personified in the Transsylvanian bloodsucker Dracula and the struggle of St. Michael and St. George against the Dragon or the Furth’er Drachenstich … but only with limited success. In essence, “the dragon” seems to have been the Tatar / Saracen / Turkish / Magyar / Avar / Khazar hordes from the steppes of the East.
In medieval Verdun, the center for eunuch production through slave castration, aphrodisiacal coated sweets were made (out of … you guess), and the invention is up to today called dragées, even if now ALMONDS are coated, not testicles.
Tatar in Russia is equivalent to Tafelspitz in Swabia, not raw meat. Maize is called Kukuruz / Türgge / Turk Flour in Tartar-conquered Europe. Note the higher occurence of hun spots (Cain?) among Jews and near Verdun.
Danu is the water goddess Tiamat the snake-like chaos monster that through the huns / xiongnu finds itself as chinese dumplings in Hun Dun, better known as wonton, pieces of order in udon, a soup of chaos.

From Khazars to Dracula
Was there always a strong opponent in the East that historians don’t tell us much about ? Maybe the Getty (of the Goths, compare with German: Geiz) who derive from the Melanchlaeni ? It is a little-known fact that Trajan did indeed make it into mid-Ukraine, just up to the city of Sataniv (Ukrainian version!). The Romans built two bridges (1, 2) over the Danube, trying to “conquer” the Dacian Dragon, both more than a kilometer in length !!! The Roman bridges over the Danube to Dacia were a good investment because Trajan brought home lots of Dacian Gold from the Carpathian mountains … but – hypothetically – was the Troyan horse … rather Trajan’s horse? There are indeed different views on Troy. See also Danaer Present and Homer’s Danaans who some attribute outside Greece.
The link between the early Scythian Agathyrsi via the Hunnic Akatziroi to Ak-Khazar / Khazars / Katz is also a good explanation for chronology and etymology. Acatari is the Transylvanian birthplace of Vlad Dracula (who had the right to mint coins), called hexagon castle by the Romans, now Sighișoara, where the Szeklers live for centuries.

The Turks before Vienna? The elephant is in the room!
The Ottoman Turks before Vienna (1683) are common knowledge in the West.
But who talks about the Magyars / Kabars / Avars attacking Germany in the early medieveal period until the Battle of the Lechfeld near Munich. Or the Turks attacking Ukraine and Poland (incl. Habsburg Austria) almost on a yearly basis, for example against the Castle of Kamienets-Podolsk and looting in principal slaves: “From 1434 until its annexation by the Russian Empire in 1793, the castle played a major role in the defense against the oncoming Cossack, Ottoman and Tatar invasions; through the 15th-17th centuries, the castle was attacked by Tatar hordes a total of 51 times.”
According to Chess Champion and historian Garelik Weinstein, aka Gary Kasparov, those repeated, almost annual Turkish raids developed a character of taxation. Compare with the poisonous red fruits of the yew tree, Latin: taxus, German: Eibe which also served as the best material for the composite bow *.
Who talks about the Serpent’s Wall through Ukraine (borderland) to defend against the hordes of the steppe which still cuts 1.000km through the country ? In addition to Trajan’s Wall ? In order to defend against the Slavic Dragon, or Wawel Dragon, or Chuvash Dragon … or Smok?
Revealing symbolism at Munich’s Marienplatz (a Holy Roman Imperial City that rose just after the Magyar Attacks – with its main gate to the East) with a profane putto boy fighting the four satanic forces (Psalm 91:13):
The dragon stands for fear (“turk”, “tartaros”, slavery, blood toll, Draconian, Trick, Trug, Druck, Truc, Drague, Torc, Torque, “torkeln”.)
On top of garlic.
The snake stands for divided rule (double speak, lie, compare Turkish: yilan = snake, yalan = lie).
On top of onion.
The basilisk stands for for indirect rule (invisibility, “host”, shapeshifting).
On top of basil.
The lion stands for submission (order, tax, levy, lion’s share).
On top of leek ?
(Those Krauts come from Greuths, Greutungen, Goths / Central Asia.)
A Chinese Wall in history books
Against which dragon was the Great Wall of China built? Or the so-called “Red Snake” , the Great Wall of Gorgan in Iran? Or the heavily fortified castles in Bohemia and Slovakia? Or the Hungarian Walls in Southern Germany?
Their enemy was the same giant steppe warrior that faced Ukraine’s serpents wall and Rome’s Trajan’s Wall. Nevertheless, this warrior hides deep within – or rather outside – mainstream history books. It is the Dragon = Asian: Druk = Turk. Medieval Hungary was referred to as “Western Tourkia” and Khazaria as “Eastern Tourkia“. Tourkia seems connected to torque (Drehmoment, twist power, compare to Ring o Roses, Cemberli, Ringelreihen, Giro Tondo) and the circular Scythian slave torc and therefore German “torkeln”. Yugo = Yoke explains Yugo-Slavians as Yoke-Slaves. This druk turk is comprising several different people, but initially all Turanic, meaning wandering the steppes in large groups on horseback … and on Bactrian camels (compare Trumpeldor?) … and probably looking like a dragon … or like beads on a chain (compare to Bohemian Druk Chain). If you need a translator, look for a Dragoman.

From Khazars to Magi(c), Magi(ars) and The Three Kings
Is there a link to the Magi, “initially associated with tricksters and conjurers … whose pejorative meaning survives in the words ‘magic’ and ‘magician'”, better known in the bible as the three kings who come from the east? Could these three kings be an allegory for the Khazars (Kaspar), Magyars (Melchior) and Bolgars (Balthasar) who invaded Central Europe, in between very similar raids by the Huns, Goths and the “Mongol” Hordes? In another description, all three are referred to as Avars.

From Khazars to Szlachta
Whereas Atilla’s troops moved back to the Volga-Don-Caucasus area (Atil), most of the Khazars moved westwards with the majority staying in the Kingdom of Poland, more precisely within the Kindom of Galicia-Volhynia, then the Kingdom of Poland and Grand Duchy of Lithuania, or the later Pale of Settlement, aka Intermarium. Part of them converted to other religions like catholicism. The nobility in Poland is traditionally called Szlachta, relating to the German word butcher and adds weight to the proposed Khazar etymology of “cutting”. The Szlachta started an age of Golden Freedoms (aka “Jewish Paradise”), however their Slav subordinates accused them of Sarmatism. A famous American of Szlachta heritage is Zbigniew Brzezinski whose coat of arms includes a triskelion made of horns ! See also the Polish creation legend around Abraham Prochownik.

Another relic of the Phoenicians trade in (murex) purple dyed clothing? There is also Polish Cochineal that was used (as far away as) in Persian Rugs. Or of a people reborn (tsion / renaissance) like a Phoenix from the ashes, every 500 years? The eagle on many flags is in fact a phoenix.
From Khazars to Pale of Settlement
Most of the Jewry migrated from Khazaria. In the absence of another lebensraum or final world to come (Olam Haba), the so-called Pale of Settlement developed with its typical shtetl culture. In the absence of work, a discussion culture formed by the name of pilpul (“Pillepalle”) referring to pepper sharp rhetoric analysis, close to hairsplitting. There were more sophisticated professions (money lenders [reich, cassirer, wexler], luxury merchants ( braun, bern, finkel-stein = lapidus, rubin, saban = soap], chemists [apotheker, greenspan, weinstein, waxman, dreyfuss], artists [singer, spielmann, lustiger], crafters [eisenmann, kessler], furnishers [spiegel, lampe, kerzner], medics [heilmann, steinschneider], surgeons [buber, wallach], long-distance traders [salz-, hellmann, garelik, pfeffer], wholesellers [süsskind, zucker, korn], tax farmers [levy, loeb], tax collectors [portmann, podesta, kas(t)ner], court jews [segal, bauer, kommissar, hoffmann, mayer]) who made it outside the Pale of Settlement. Also typical Yiddish terms like jubel, spion, smuggle, shmoo, schmuck (jewellery), schick(se), mauscheln, schumeln, mogeln, schnorren, baldowern, Gauner (from Gaon), Ganove, *, or customs like phallus worship (rosh pinah = Eckstein / capstone = cock-head), the pointed hat (1, 2), kahal taxation, ghetto segregation, gemach credit, aleinu (elected race), talion law, kol nidre oaths, Pulsa DiNura or Nasi leaders (Nasha = Hebrew: deceive) under the exilarch (Rash Galut, Judenkaiser).

On my way west I passed through Kiev (formerly Sambat) and Chernihiv (next to Chernobyl), both at the surprisingly far Eastern borders of the medieval Magdeburg Law which spread exactly along the lines of Rhadanite trade routes, and then through the interesting Podolian towns and former shtetl of Brody, Rohatyn, Halych (which relates to the Halizones tribe from Khwarezmia) and Sataniv, where a famous medieval fortress synagogue sits magically on top of a hill. The locals told me of black magic sessions held here every year.
F: Sataniv, Synagogue, Cemetery (tombs facing west), inside
The city of Burshtyn (=Brenn-, Bernstein, Amber) indicates the importance of that region for the trade of this precious and magic stone from the Baltic Sea towards the South. Tutankhamun wore an amber talisman on his deathbed. Amber’s electromagnetic qualities also gave it the initial (Greek) name of elektron, the elected, the chosen – although negatively charged. Burshtyn’s coat of arms is a Triskelion, like the three hares, the Hephaistos myth in the Illiad’s Sicily, the Isle of Man, or the town of Füssen (formerly “Foetes”) in Germany (compare: “Dreifuss“).
F: Burshtyn with Triskelion
At the Ukraine-Poland border, I passed through the spooky town of Przemysl, a Catholic and former Jewish hub on the Rhadanite trade route, where the locals warned me of the “black mafia”. And past Kolbuszowa with an interesting coat of arms. Had I known about nearby Nisko before, I would have visited it.
F: Przemysl. S: Wikipedia.
I also visited Oswieczim in the heavily populated and industrialised triangle Silesia / Moravia / Galicia.

From 007 via Karlsbad to the Caucasus
Via Prague, I side-stepped to Karlsbad to see Grand Hotel Pupp which features prominently in the English spy movie James Bond “Casino Royale”. I never read anywhere that “Bond” means covenant (Bund, Union, (Y)Ehud) with “James = Jacob = Israel”. In a future post, I will refer to Dr. Dee, an occultist and kabbalist, co-founder of early MI6, and the 007 signature. The role of The Crown (representing the City of London, not the Queen) and its tax specialised Agents deserve special attention reg. British Israelism. The real James Bond was Sidney Reilly (b. Shlomo Rosenblum), working along Basil Zakharov and Alexander Parvus (b. Israel Lazarovich Helphand). In “The World is not Enough”, Elektra King describes the Caucasus mountains to James Bond as “This is where it all began!”. The fictional Elektra King (as in Amber & Khazar) is based on the Ephrussi family who controlled the grain production in Ukraine and later the Caspian oil fields. “M”, explains her close link with Elektra King’s father, with whom she went to Oxford & Cambridge. There are many cryptic meanings in 007 films, such as Universal Exports, the all-knowing Eye of Providence, or the “Displaced Persons Office” in “Thunderball” leading to a secret meeting room of “SPECTRE” (the institute, above governments and other secret services in subversion, extortion and taxation). With Lenin’s cat on the lap. Or Felix Leiter (Jacob’s ladder) who serves as a happy host on the “Highway to Heaven”, being head of the American CIA, working closely with MI6, “from son to father” so to speak in “Licence to Kill”.

The Hare with Amber Eyes – A Hidden Inheritance
The book The Hare with Amber Eyes by Edmund de Waal, son of the Ephrussi family refers to the highly symbolic figure of the hare in their early Ukrainian family tradition. The enigmatic motif of the Three Hares can be found all along the northern Silk Road into Central Europe, including several tombstones in the Ukrainian village of Sataniv, up to the Phoenician tin islands (ancient Tintagel = modern Cornwall, from where the Phoenicians transported tin by sea). The three hares in the symbol hide their ears, one behind the other. It could hide the identity of the Hase / Hotz / Katz. According to some Hare traditions, the animal has a meaning for (re)birth, as a trickster or a hidden hexe (German: witch, from Hexagram, German “verhexen”).
F: Three Hares, on tombstones in Sataniv.
Regensburg, Laupheim, Lechfeld & Türkenfeld
My travels then took me to Regensburg, the important medieval trade town, via Pullach & Föhrenwald where the most important Displaced Persons Camp and post-war’s German secret service BND were located, and further to Laupheim, where my mother and sister were born (and a Mr. Laemmle who created Hollywood).
Interestingly, this is exactly the area where through the Battle of the Lechfeld the Holy Roman Empire (“of the German Nation”) was founded, with the cities Türkenfeld and Türkheim close by, roads like Türkenstrasse, and communities like Günzburg (Ginsburg, Gainsbourg), Kissing and Waal.
In a twisted coincidence of historic turn points – like Verdun, Crimea and Stalingrad – the Lechfeld is also where Hitler was incarcerated and wrote “Mein Kampf”, and later “Nazis” (SataN reversed) were killed after their war tribunals (both at Festung Landsberg), Hess started his secret solo-flight to Scotland, and Israeli athletes of the 1972 Olympics were killed in a failed rescue attempt (Fürstenfeldbruck Military Airport).

Basel, Frankfurt and ShUM-cities
Onwards via Buttenheim (Levy Strauss), Buttenwiesen (Blenheim Battle->Marlborough->Churchill) and Buttenhausen (Matthias Erzberger of the Dolchstoss legend, income tax, and Rothschild schoolmate), Hotzenwald and Gugel (spy over Rhine) to Basel (Basilisk, Basilea = Kings) where I stayed at Hotel Les Trois Rois, host to to the First Zionist Congress organised by Theodor Herzl and David Wolffsohn – and seat of BIS. Then northward along the Rhine past Guggenheim, Unter- and Ober-Türkheim and the ShUM-cities (= garlic-cities) Speyer (Shapiro), Worms and Mainz, via Oppenheim (with its 40km smuggler labyrinth and later fame as Judenkaiser, or reg. Buttenberg/Mountbatten/Windsor, Jud Süss, secret service, De Beers, atomic bomb) to Frankfurt where a famous red shield revolutionised world history (but previously taken from Prague, where it hides the golem).

Gentlemen of the Road
The original stimulus to undertake this trip came from Michael Chabon’s book “Gentlemen of the Road” telling the tale of two Rhadanites in ancient Khazaria. Coincidentally, I stumbled upon the book when I googled the name of my own travelblog “Gentleman Adventurer”. Bing! Yahoo!
