Many have seen or have been shouted at by the Black Israelites on the streets of New York & other urban areas in the West & have probably been turned off to some of their hate filled rhetoric without finding out why they state claim as the original Jews/Israelites. Many do not know that Israel rebuilt a Jewish nation in numbers by welcoming thousands of Ethiopian Jews back to their claim of the Jewish Promised land in Israel/ Palestine.

A World Renown Book that many critical thinkers of world religion,ancestry & heritage must read.
The Thirteenth Tribe (1976) is a book by Arthur Koestler. It advances the controversial thesis that the modern Jewish population originating from North / East Europe and Russia including their descendants, or Ashkenazim, are not descended from the historical Israelites of antiquity, but from Khazars, a people originating and populating the Caucasus region (historical Khazaria) who converted to Judaism in the 8th century and later voluntarily migrating or were forced to move westwards into current Eastern Europe (Russia, Hungary, Ukraine, Poland, Belarus, Lithuania, Germany and other places outside the Caucasus region) before and during the 12th and 13th century when the Khazar Empire was collapsing.
