Overview

The Thirteenth Tribe is a ground breaking work of great importance, if only because it has shaped the way that people think about The Jews.
It is based on the theory that European Jews, Ashkenazi Jews from Europe, are not descendants of Abraham but rather are the remnants of a tribe, the Khazars, that converted to Judaism in the Eighth Century.
We know little about the Khazars, but we do know for certain that they existed and that they were Jewish. The Jews, Russians, Georgians and Armenians all wrote about the Khazars, but the Khazars left no literature, no books. This was perhaps because the Khazars existed during the Dark Ages, a period from which few books survive today.
Koestler's thesis is that while the Khazars as a unified tribe may have disappeared, their descendants survived, only that they were no longer known as the Khazars. Instead, these people are now Eastern European Jews and they continue to live in the same places where the Khazars lived such as in Kiev and Odessa.
The view of Arthur Koestler who himself was Jewish is that none of the mass movements of the Jewish people happened at all. Rather, the Jews stayed in exactly the same place where they have been all along because the Eastern European Jews are the Khazars. They are the same people. Just their name has been changed.
Which is more logical: The Traditional Jewish view or Arthur Koestler's theory?

This is a well worth read. When The Thirteenth Tribe came out at about the early 1970's; there were many questions from the World Jewish Community which represent about 25 Million. The Author; Arthur Koestler states that the majority of Jews today are converts from a Turkic Tribe called the Khazars of Central Asia. Apparently, there are just about 4 million Jews who are descendants from the original Tribes of Israel.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, although it took me quite a whiles to locate it.His views on the israeli nation of today not actually being Israelites according to the bible was very interesting to me because I have come to that conclusion myself.The fact that he committed suicide, or was murdered depending on who you talk to, shows me how sensitive this information is to the powers that be.In reading the bible you find that the true ancient hebrew israelites are people of color and still exist today. We call these people blacks, hispanics, and indians.I used this book to further my notion that this is not really a secret but a well known fact.I strongly urge people who are intersted in some thought provoking historical facts to pick up this book and question everything you know about the chosen people of god ( The HEBREW ISRAELITES)are people of color, and still exist today.

People, especially christians, need to read this book and stop buying into the myth that modern day "jews" are "God's chosen people". Rev 2:9

Very informative and valuable book. In due time, we will all witness the true Jews, the true 12 tribes of Yisrael, this book correlates with scripture and has me waiting impatiently for the world to see us. The truth is being reveled. Highly recommended book!

Most of the information in the book was correct, however there were also some major errors as well. For example the book refers to the Amorites as blond haired people, which is ridiculous because Genesis 10:15-16 tells us that they were descendants of Ham and therefore had to be a black race of people, this is also confirmed with the tablets discovered in Ebla, Syria in 1975, which were more than 4500 years old. The book even tried to call other descendants of Ham as mongoloid. I find it quite amusing that the ethnicity of Ham's descendants are always called into question, particularly when they have done great things; such as the Ethiopians and Egyptians, but no one ever questions the ethnicity of the descendants from Japeth. Racism takes on many forms, particularly when it is used to keep the accomplishments of black people out of the history books, but this will never work, because as Luke 12:2 states: 'For there is nothing covered that shall not be revealed; neither hid that shall not be known'.
