Understanding biblical historiography and Crypto-Jewish historiograpies requires applying the ancient toolkit of the Great Tradition of the Art of Writing, meaning that both biblical historiographies and historigraphies of Crypto-Jewish denominations must be interpreted rather than being regarded as either literalisms or mere myths.

1. Sumer and Israel

The first form of Judaism emerged in ancient Sumer in southern Mesopotamia where hereditary priests served as simultaneously communal hereditary religious leaders and local rulers. The Hebrew Bible is an example of ancient esoteric literature which means that its historiographies need to be understood through the esoteric toolkit that was generally used for the purpose of authoring and editing ancient political literature.

The Hebrew Bible describes four historical exoduses near or across deserts:

  1. First Exodus from Sumer to Canaan
  2. Second Exodus from Canaan to Egypt
  3. Third Exodus from Egypt to Canaan
  4. Fourth Exodus from Israel to Assyria

The first three desert exoduses are all documented in the Torah (the Pentateuch) and are celebrated in the form of the three original pilgrimage festivals which entailed walking by foot from across the land of Israel to the Temple in Jerusalem (Hebrew Aliyah ba’Regel) in thus commemorating the journeys of the three Exoduses of the Torah. The three pilgrimage festivals all exoterically commemorate the narrative of the Exodus from Egypt, a historiography which by textual synthesis integrates events from the different Biblical exoduses into one foundational national narrative of the sacred nation of Israel.

The journey of the legendary Abraham and his sacerdotal caste from Sumer to Canaan is in biblical chronology placed close to the time of the collapse of Sumerian civilization that was marked by the Elamite conquest of Sumer in 1940 BCE. This caused previously ruling Sumerian hereditary priests (Sumerian En) to flee the country for Canaan, which is what the Exodus of Abraham historically refers to. Biblical Abraham’s origin in Ur is a reference to the Third Dynasty of Ur (Ur III Empire), the last Sumerian state that is also known as the Neo-Sumerian Empire which existed in 2055-1940 BCE and importantly this is also a reference to the royal Sumerian ancestry of the En hereditary priests who later became known as Levites (Hebrew Levi’im). The chronology of the Hebrew calendar commences in the context of Sumerian civilization. The earliest attested Sumerian writing is documented from the 31st century BCE (i.e. before the year 3000 BCE) and the Hebrew calendar is counted from the year 3760 BCE.

The Sumerian origins of Judaism have since been kept religiously secret due to sexual religious rituals in Sumerian religion that came to be regarded as scandalous in the Middle East. Yet Judaism itself even today, four thousand years after the fall of Sumerian civilization essentially remains an evolved form of Sumerian religion. It has long been well-known that most of the stories in the Torah are of Mesopotamian origin although it has been incorrectly assumed that this influence is from the period of Jewish captivity in Babylonia in 597-539 BCE. Rather than a Babylonian influence on Judaism, Sumerian religion is the very origin of Judaism itself as Judaism represents the post-Sumerian survival and evolition of the ancient civilization and religion of Sumer which existed for thousands of years in ancient southern Mesopotamia.

2. Israel and Egypt

The City of Avaris
The city of Avaris.

Canaanite statehood inside Egypt began in the Egyptian city of Avaris in the 18th century BCE and lasted until 1550 BCE when the Hyksos Canaanite reign over Egypt came to an end. The Hebrew Bible recounts the basic historical timeline of Canaanites immigrating to Egypt, joining government, later losing their status in becoming a stigmatized and oppressed minority and at some point Canaanite-Egyptians deciding to return to the Canaan of their ancestors. These four phases of events are notably all attested in other historical sources as well.

Henotheism became prominent in Egypt in the form of Atenism which was made the state religion by Pharaoh Akhenaten in 1348/1346 BCE. Akhenaten was a transman (transgender man), a physiological female dressed as and living his life as the male ruler of Egypt. Akhenaten was originally known as Amenhotep IV but changed his name to Akhenaten which in Egyptian means “effective for the sun disk” but whose esoteric Canaanite/Hebrew meaning is achi natan, meaning “my brother gave” referring to Akhenaten’s brother being the biological father of the children of Akhenaten as incest among royals was common in ancient Egypt. The mummy of Akhenaten has been confused with that of his wife as the bludgeoned scull of the chromosomally female Akhenaten shows that he was either murdered or executed. The originally mobile Israelite Ark of the Covenant (Hebrew Aron haBrit) was designed as a relatively small burial box and probably contained a royal Egyptian mummy, possibly a mummified dead daughter or son of Akhenaten who passed away while still a child and whose mummy could thus fit into the relatively small Ark of the Covenant.

Atenism worshiped the Sumerian sun god Utu. However, Atenism was the state religion of Egypt for merely some 20 years after which there was a severe political reaction against Atenism in prompting the Canaanite-Egyptian Atenist (i.e. Crypto-Sumerian) sacerdotal caste to escape Egypt for Canaan.  The Canaanite-Egyptian Levite political refugees settled in urbanizing contexts of the land of Canaan and brought with them their evolved Crypto-Sumerian Egyptian religion which was subsequently increasingly religiously integrated with pre-existing polytheistic religion in Canaan. Henotheism, the doctrine that there could be multiple deities, but that only one deity may be legitimately worshiped, therefore also came to increasingly typify the Israelite religion that is extensively described in the Hebrew Bible.

The Canaanite deities of Asherah and El were fused into Ashera-El who in turn morphed into Israel in eventually becoming the bi-gendered, yet strictly singular God of Israel. The development from polytheism to henotheism meant that some of the previous deities were morphed into the singular deity but also that the existence of other divine personalities were recognized in the form of angels. Henotheism and angels thus supplanted pre-existing polytheistic deities.

Samuel anoints David.

Beginning with Israelite kings David (who lived 1040–970 BCE) and his son and successor Solomon; Israelite religion in Israel underwent major transformations. Both David and Solomon were highly polygamous as Solomon is described in the Hebrew Bible as having been married to 700 wives and 300 concubines. The many patrilineal descendants of David and Solomon became known as Kohanim (Hebrew Kohen meaning priest from Sumerian Kah-An meaning Mouth of God). Solomon built the First Temple in Jerusalem which became staffed  by Kohanim with the Sumerian-Egyptian Levites reduced to serving in functionally subordinated roles.

The Kingdom of Israel appropriated the Egyptian history of the Levites and transformed the Levite historical experience as an ethnically Canaanite-Egyptian former elite turned political refugees – into Israelite exceptionalism. The Israelite state embellished Levite history into a series of improbable exoteric events that were elevated into an exoteric meta-narrative of Israelites generally. The Kohanim however came to marginalize the special societal position of the Levites themselves. An exoteric genealogy was created whereby the Kohanim were said to be patrilineal descendants of Aaron, brother of Moses (Moshe).

The intellectual leadership in the relatively small Kingdom of Israel seems to have lived in great fear of its neighbor Egypt, the regional superpower of the time as can be psychologically inferred from the biblical text. The Egyptian Merneptah Stele contains an inscription describing an Egyptian 13th century genocidal Egyptian military campaign in the Land of Israel.

The Canaan has been plundered into every sort of woe
Ashkelon has been overcome
Gezer has been captured
Yano’am is made non-existent
Israel is laid waste and his seed is not

Merneptah Stele
Merneptah Stele

This no doubt well-founded fear should have been sufficient reason to publically suppress the Sumerian-Atenist orgins of Canaanite Judaism and especially so considering the way that Atenism was thoroughly discredited in Egypt itself, including by erasing the state records of Atenist rule in Egypt.  An openly Atenist state in Canaan would seemingly have realistically risked severely antagonizing Israel’s powerful western Egyptian neighbor. The Hebrew Bible is a particularly heavily edited state literary archive and it seems clear that parts of the Israelite state records were erased as well, including likely references to the transgender Akhenaten as well as to gynocentric aspects of the explicitly pro-sexual Sumerian religion.

The Hebrew Bible describes a period of 400 years of slavery in Egypt which is approximately the length of the historical period spanning from Canaanite immigration to Egypt in the 18th century BCE to the rise and fall of Atenism in the 14th century BCE. There is no reason why travelling from Egypt to Israel should take forty years, rather forty days would have been quite sufficient in ancient times. There is no archaeological evidence of a forty-year long Canaanite sojourn in the Sinai Desert or a Canaanite invasion of Canaan from Egypt for the simple reason that these are exoteric embellishments to the original Levite historical experience spanning three biblical exoduses.

3. Assyria, Media and Persia

Kingdoms of Judah and Israel.
Kingdoms of Judah and Israel.

The united monarchy of Israel was partitioned into two kingdoms in 930 BCE; the southern Kingdom of Judah (Hebrew Mamlekhet Yehudah) and the northern Kingdom of Israel (Hebrew Mamlekhet Israel). The northern kingdom was attacked by the Neo-Assyrian Empire in 732 BCE and its Israelite population was in subsequent decades deported in several waves to areas in and near present-day Kurdistan.

After the deported Jews settled in what is now Kurdistan, they resorted to religious secrecy so as to protect themselves and their form of Israelite religion from the domination of their Assyrians rulers. Following upon the Assyrian deportations, Israelites generally became known as Jews (Hebrew Yehudim meaning Judeans) rather than as Israelites (Hebrew Bnei Israel meaning Children of Israel) as Jews is not merely a designation for those descended from the southern Kingdom of Judah, from the Tribe of Judah (Hebrew Shevet Yehuda) or from the Yehuda tribal area in ancient Israel but rather describes the sacred nation of Israel generally, Jews as well as Crypto-Jews, the rabbinically Jewish people as well as Para-Jewish peoples.

With the fall of the Neo-Assyrian Empire in 627-605 BCE and the rise of the Median Empire which existed in the period of 678-549 BCE; the deported Jewish population gained prominence as Median Judaism became the leading religion in the Median Empire in becoming part of the ethnic religion of the Medes. The Median state with its capital Ecbatana was founded in the part of the region to which Israelites were deported by Assyrian king Sargon II in the years 716-715 BCE.

However, the Levite priestly tribe remained distinctive and also preserved within itself the Kohanim priestly caste which thus became the priestly caste of the Medes generally. Both Levites and Kohanim in Media are historically known in Latin as Magi (singular Magus), a term which is derived from the Hebrew Maggid, meaning preacher. Maggid Levites thus became one of the six tribes of the Medes and this is still strictly esoterically commemorated in Rabbinic Judaism with the six dishes on the Passover Seder plate. While originally the term “Magi” referred both to the Levite tribe and to the Kohanim caste within that tribe, when later ancient sources refer to “the Magi”, they probably only meant the Kohanim of Priestly Judaism.

Lag baOmer and Newroz are celebrated with bonfires.

A fire festival known as Lag baOmer in Rabbinic Judaism and Newroz in Median Judaism was instituted to esoterically commemorate the Median conversion to Judaism and the establishment of the Median Empire. The festival of Purim is known as Khal Gagane (Hebrew Chagiganu, i.e. we celebrated) among the Crypto-Jewish Alevis and is a biblical narrative deliberately designed to place the drama of Cyrus, his mother Queen Madane och his wicked grandfather king Astyages of Media in a different historiographical context.

In 550 BCE, Cyrus transformed the Median Empire into the Persian Empire which initially made no religious difference as the Maggid Kohanim served both Medes and Persians.  With the expansion of the Median Empire in becoming the Persian Empire, the land of Israel thus once more came under Jewish rule and the Jews living in Babylonian captivity could return to Judea and rebuild the temple in Jersualem. Cyrus is for these reasons referred to in the Book of Isaiah as a messiah/mashiach (Hebrew YHWH limshicho).

So said the Lord, your Redeemer, and the One Who formed you from the womb, “I am the Lord Who makes everything, Who stretched forth the heavens alone, Who spread out the earth from My power. Who frustrates the signs of imposters, and diviners He makes mad; He turns the wise backwards, and makes their knowledge foolish. He fulfills the word of His servant, and the counsel of His messenger He completes; Who says of Jerusalem, “It shall be settled,” and of the cities of Judah, “They shall be built, and its ruins I will erect.” Who says to the deep, “Be dry, and I will dry up your rivers.” Who says of Cyrus, “He is My shepherd, and all My desire he shall fulfill,” and to say of Jerusalem, “It shall be built, and the Temple shall be founded.” So said the Lord to His anointed one, to Cyrus, whose right hand I held, to flatten nations before him, and the loins of kings I will loosen, to open portals before him, and gates shall not be closed. I will go before you, and I will straighten out crooked paths; I will break portals of copper and cut off bars of iron. And I will give you treasures of darkness, and riches hidden in secret places, in order that you know that I am the Lord Who calls [you] by your name-the Holy One of Israel. For the sake of My servant Jacob, and Israel My chosen one, and I called to you by your name; I surnamed you, yet you have not known Me. I am the Lord, and there is no other; besides Me there is no God: I will strengthen you although you have not known Me. In order that they know from the shining of the sun and from the west that there is no one besides Me; I am the Lord and there is no other. Who forms light and creates darkness, Who makes peace and creates evil; I am the Lord, Who makes all these.

The new religion of Zoroastrianism was much later established as state dominant religion. Priestly Judaism adapted creatively to this new reality by integrating into Zoroastrianism as the Median Maggid hereditary priests successfully transformed themselves into the hereditary priesthood of Zoroastrianism as well. The religious tradition of esoteric secrecy was continued with Priestly Judaism becoming symbiotic with the dominant Zoroastrianism and therefore surviving in spite of Zoroastrian religious imperialism. Zoroaster himself, the founder of Zoroastrianism, was a Maggid Kohen as Zoroastrianism was very much shaped and influenced by ancient Priestly Judaism, including by the Jewish belief in Human angels. However, the female side of God in Judaism (Asherah/Ruach/Shekhinah) became increasingly demonized and so was re-conceptualized into the destructive spirit of Angra Mainyu, later known as Ahriman.

4. Hellenism

The Maggids are known to have been present in many parts of the ancient world as were likewise overt Jews of Antiquity. Little is known about the relationship between open Jews and Crypto-Jews in the ancient world, yet there are numerous references to anonymous sages in the Talmud as those very anonymous authorities most likely were Maggid Kohanim of Priestly Judaism. The seeming mobility and apparent geographic diffusion of the Maggids allowed the Maggid Kohanim to win over large numbers of Humans and doing so by themselves as priests integrating into the pre-existing religions of those regions as the Maggids travelled wide and afar even geographically far beyond what morphed into the Hellenistic civilization of Antiquity. Peoples as diverse as the Igbo of Nigeria, the Japanese and the Pashtun of Afghanistan and Pakistan were converted by the Maggid as some of these migrating Maggid Kohanim settled among the many peoples that were thus integrated into Maggid Judaism while apparently respecting their pre-existing religions. Rather than spreading in Africa and Asia by means of individual conversions, Priestly Judaism was inserted into the cultural frames of pre-existing ethnic religions in therefore giving rise to a great many different syncretistic forms of Maggid Judaism worldwide. This of course followed the pattern of the Levites in Canaan and the Maggids in Media.

It was quite common to have more than one religion in Hellenistic civilization of Antiquity (as is still very common in China) and this was true for ancient Jews as well. Median Judaism meaning Priestly Judaism prospered in the religious milieu of Hellenistic Antiquity where symbiosis with dominant societal patterns of organized religion allowed Priestly Judaism to attract more and more converts by complementing rather than competing with the dominant religion of the time. Parts of Priestly Judaism morphed into open Hellenistic Judaism but also prospered in the form of Hellenistic Sacred Mysteries (“mystery cults”) and later Gnosticism.

Proto-Christianity originally emerged in the Roman Province of Judea (Latin Provincia Iudaea) as a Jewish sect within Pharisaic Judaism as led by a later world-famous Pharisaic rabbi but was subsequently disseminated by Paul (originally Shaul of Tarsus) in the Aegean cultural context of Hellenistic Judaism.  The name of “Jesus” is known from the entirely Greek-language text of the New Testament and since this was written directly in Greek, it has remained unclear whether the name of “Jesus” in Hebrew was “Jeshua” or “Joshua” since these two names are spelled identically in Greek. The explanation for this and for the reported sighting post-execution was apparently the existence of a pair of identical twins with one being executed by the Romans and the other surviving and likely so mostly in hiding from Roman persecution. It is common for twins to be given similar names and so the twins were apparently named Jeshuah and Joshuah. As infanticide of irregular infants used to be widespread in human cultures around the world (including in ancient Greece) were the fact of them being two persons rather than one apparently hidden so as to protect them from social intolerance and even execution.

Priestly Judaism and Christianity in Anatolia are both forms of Hellenistic Judaism and Priestly Judaism evolved into a symbiotic relationship with Christianity as earlier already with Zoroastrianism. Priestly Judaism continued to attract more converts and spread throughout the Zoroastrian, Hellenistic and Christian eras by simply being symbiotic with the dominant form of religion at the time yet remaining distinctive by means of esotericism specifically and through religious secrecy generally.

5. Islamic Era

8th century CE Arabian conquerors had a political need to build an official imperial religion to justify its imperialist pretensions and colonial activities and so became strongly influenced by Rabbinic Judaism and adopted much of rabbinic law, Halakha and recodified it as Sharia, colonial Arabian religious law. Sharia is a simple translation of the Hebrew word Halakha into Arabic as both words obviously not coincidentally mean path. The advantage for Arabian colonialists in selectively adopting and adapting elements of Rabbinic Judaism for their own imperialist purposes was clearly the prior existence of a detailed legal code that was simultaneously both judicial and religious.

Priestly Judaism and its Crypto-Jewish adherents often suffered terribly under Islamic rule although as for rabbinic Jews the nature of those regimes largely depended on the attitudes of individual rulers and their associated religious leaderships.

A new type of religious symbiosis evolved under Islamic rule as rather than having more than one religion at the same time as under Zoroastrianism, Hellenism and Christianity; Priestly Judaism rather adapted and precariously survived as Crypto-Jewish denominations with often Muslim-style exoteric surface meant to protect the real esoteric Sumerian-Atenist-Israelite religious content of Priestly Judaism. Priestly Judaism in the Middle East shrunk geographically under Islamic rule due to religious persecution and religious imperialism but Crypto-Jewish communities of descendants of former adherents can still be identified by the strong cultural influence of Priestly Judaism upon particular folk cultures during the long history of Priestly Judaism prior to involuntary Islamization. The Crypto-Jewish adherents of Priestly Judaism became known as Ghulat, an Arabic adjective that means extremists, indicating how Priestly Judaism deliberately culturally positioned itself on the very religious margins of the religious civilization of Islamdom and thus precariously surviving to some degree.

The publically known surviving branches of Priestly Judaism outside of Islam in the Middle East are Alawites, Alevi-Bektashi, Druze, Samaritans, Yarsanis (including Kakayis and Shabaks) and Yezidis. The Crypto-Jewish adherents of Priestly Judaism are even today divided between Levites (priestly caste) and non-Levites (non-priestly caste). Alevis and Mandaeans are composed of hereditary priests only although Bektashism allows both Alevis and Bektashis to serve as priests. While among Alevis only Alevi Dedes, literally Alevi Davidians (Hebrew singular haLevi Davidi ) meaning Kohanim of the Levite tribe – can serve as priests, among the Mandaeans there are in contrast no Kohanim whomsoever. Rather, the Mandaeans who traditionally live in regions east of the Tigris river are the Jews beyond the Sambation river as referred to in rabbinic literature where they are described as all being descendants of Moses, meaning in effect Levites without any Kohanim. According to the biblical narrative, exoteric brothers Aaron and Moses were Levites and Aaron was the first kohen from whom all Kohanim supposedly are claimed to be descended from. Atenist sun symbols and Atenist sun worship are still very common in Priestly Judaism as even the famous Star of David (Hebrew Magen David meaning the Shield of David) is itself an Atenist sun symbol.

The history of Priestly Judaism under the reign of Islamdom is largely one of intervals between humiliating submission under Islamic religious imperialism and terrible persecutions on the part of both Muslim religious imperialist rulers and Muslim religious extremists against the Crypto-Jewish adherents of Priestly Judaism. Some adherents of Open Judaism and Priestly Judaism survived as heterodox dissenters within Islam and became known as Shiatu Ali, meaning exoterically in Arabic followers of Ali. However in terms of Crypto-Jewish etymology this comes from the Hebrew Yah Eli, literally meaning Yah is my God. Zaydis and Ismailis still constitute Crypto-Judaism and their adherents remain Crypto-Jewish. Zaydis are now mostly found in northwestern Yemen and southwestern Saudi Arabia and are the Crypto-Jewish descendants of the Jewish population of the Kingdom of Himyar (110 BCE–520 CE) whose population in great part converted to Open Judaism. Twelver Shia however largely morphed into religious imperialism as beginning in the Safavid period.

Alevi-Bektashi were once more widespread in Iran as Sufism (Arabic al sufiyya from Greek sophia for wisdom) originated among Alevi-Bektashi in Iran. Although the Safavid Empire was created with the crucial participation of Alevi-Bektashi soldiers (known in Turkish as Kizilbash meaning redheads), the Persian state eventually almost entirely put an end to the longstanding open presence of Alevi-Bektashi Judaism in Iran. The similarities between Alevi-Bektashi and Sufism are due to Sufism originating in Alevi-Bektashi Judaism in northeastern Iran in medieval times and certainly not vice versa as is often falsely presumed. Both Sufism and Freemasonry are gentile brotherhoods of Crypto-Judaism as based on hierarchic esoteric initiation, although there are many millions of Muslim Crypto-Jews in Islamdom who are also Sufis just as there are similarly some individual rabbinic Jews who are Freemasons.

The Romani people migrated out of South Asia and later arrived in Europe after apparently living in regions between India and Europe where they adopted one or more forms of Maggid Judaism. The existence even today of Romani Alevis in Anatolia whose ancestors obviously converted to Alevism is evidence of this as are the many Para-Jewish customs in Romani culture.

Hephthalite Empire
Hephthalite Empire

The Hephthalite Empire 408–670 CE (a.k.a. the Naphthalites) practiced a form of Maggid Judaism and included the Para-Jewish country of Pashtunistan within its borders. At some point however, Maggid Judaism in Central Asia turned into religious imperialism with the emergence of the great Turkic and Mongolian empires.

Most gentile Christians in the Fertile Crescent were historically Islamized while almost only endogamous Jewish Christians remained Christian and today constitute the modern Aramean people, a Para-Jewish people with particularly fractured ethnic identities, including the Assyrian Jews, a majority of whom today identify as Aramaic-speaking Christian Assyrians. Christian communities descended from Jews of Open Judaism must have been far more ready to contribute to the paying of the Islamic Jizya poll tax for poor families in their communities so as to prevent their involuntary conversion into Islam than were other Christians mutually among themselves inside their respective communities.

Churches of the Aramean people have traditionally maintained either Aramaic or Greek as their liturgical language. Yet, it is precisely due to being a Para-Jewish people that their origins and ancestry have remained unknown and disputed as this information has long been withheld from the people by clerical elites of the various Aramean churches although there is archival and other historical documentation available.

Most of the population in what is now Israel and Judea and Samaria (“West Bank of Jordan”) was most clearly already Jewish by the time of the New Testament. Extensive genetic studies have shown that most Palestinians and Jordanians belong to clans of endogamous Jewish ancestry and many such endogamous clans are still culturally and thus ethnically Crypto-Jewish. This type of Jewish ancestry among ethnically and linguistically similar Sunni Muslims is present in Syria as well. There is now a large-scale, yet quiet Jewish revival underway among Palestinian endogamous clans, mainly in Judea and Samaria but also inside Israel proper.

The Islamization of the broader Middle East is overwhelmingly associated with change of language. The North Arabian Semitic language of Dariyya largely supplanted Tamazight (“Berber”) and the other major North Arabian Semitic language of Amiyya largely supplanted Aramaic, Egyptian, South Arabian languages and Nubian languages. Arabic is long since a dead language whose usage is similar to that of Latin in medieval France and medieval Italy and was never the predominant natively spoken language outside of Arabia.

What became the Turkish-speaking parts of what are now Turkey did natively speak Greek in the West and Armenian in the East before historically enforced Islamization. In Kurdistan, enforced Islamization is historically associated with shift of language away from Zazaki (Dmili-Gorani) and Armenian towards Kurdish (Kurmanji-Sorani). Much of North Azerbaijan spoke Armenian prior to Islamization while much of South Azerbaijan spoke Talysh-Tati (Azari) prior to Islamization.

There was once a dialect continuum spanning a continuous territorial region of Kurdish, Zazaki (Dmili-Gorani), Talysh-Tati (Azari), Mazandarani-Gilaki, Semnani languages, the Central Iranian languages and the historical literary language of Parthian spoken in what is now northeastern Iran. This historical dialect continuum was in ancient times known as Media. The Balochi language is also related to this group of languages, although having become geographically isolated from the other languages in this group. Islamization in what is now Iran thus caused the spread of Azerbaijani Oghuz and Persian at the expense of Median/Parthian.

6. Levites

In addition to the Kohanim, the Hebrew Bible exoterically refers to three genealogical categories of Levites, namely the Gershonites, the Kohathites, and the Merarites. As the Levites are religiously descended from the priestly rulers (Sumerian EN) of Sumer this exoteric trisection refers to the fate of the Sumerian ruling elite subsequent to the fall of Sumerian civilization in 1940 BCE.

The most well-known group are 1) those who escaped Sumer for Canaan and whose descendants became religiously prominent in Egypt and later founded Israelite religion. 2) The descendants of the EN who remained in Sumer still exist and are known as Mandaeans and practice Mandaeism which is a very ancient Sumerian form of Crypto-Judaism.  3) The EN who escaped Sumer in other geographic directions developed Indo-Iranian religion and civilization thanks to profound Sumerian erudition and advanced Sumerian technological and scientific skills possessed by the EN.

Ottoman sayyid symbolically places his right hand on his heart. The right hand symbolizes Benjamin (which means “son of my right hand” in Hebrew) and the heart symbolizes Jerusalem as the heart of the sacred nation of Israel. Benjamin was historically the tribal area surrounding Jerusalem and therefore this Jewish/Crypto-Jewish gesture refers to the among Rabbinic Jews famous biblical verse “If I forget you, O Jerusalem, may my right hand forget [its skill].” Psalms 137:5
A vast geographic belt of EN priestly castes still exists as spanning from the South Balkans to South Asia and includes Alevis (as well as Levites of other denominations of Priestly Judaism), Sayyids in Muslim countries and Hindu Brahmins of South Asia. This shared Sumerian historical origin therefore explains the many similarities between South Asian and West Asian religions.

The Israelite population of the Northern Kingdom of Israel as deported by Assyria was therefore not exiled to a religiously alien environment. It was not strange at all that the Israelite religion that developed into Median Judaism as led by the Maggid Kohanim became the preeminent religion in the Median Empire and later the predominant religion in the Persian Empire in the shape of the historical stage of Median Judaism known as Zoroastrianism – considering that the deported Israelite Levites were basically unified with their fellow EN of Media. The significant religious change in Media was however brought about by the deported Israelite Kohanim who as in Judah and Israel subordinated the Levites, including also the Median EN. The plural form of the English word Levite (Hebrew singular levi, plural levi’im) is probably derived from the Sumerian LU*EN, meaning “local ruler”, also known as EN. The singular Hebrew form is thus derived from the plural form and not vice versa. El is the generic term for deity in Semitic languages such as Hebrew and is apparently derived from the Sumerian An, the name of the supreme deity in the Sumerian pantheon.

Levites as a priestly caste are of Sumerian origin and therefore pre-Israelite, yet the Levites are and remain the first and original Jews, a sacerdotal caste that still exists today in vast numbers, including the Brahmins (“Abrahamis”) of India, Sayyids, Alevis, rabbinically Jewish Levites, Mandaeans and others. Levites therefore existed long prior to the establishment of ancient Israel and have the most ancient Jewish ancestry of all. The Crypto-Jewish and entirely Levite Mandaeans therefore represent not only the most original Levites but are also the most original Jews in having existed long before the establishment of ancient Israel. In fact, genetic studies on the Y-chromosome haplogroups (genetic patrilineage) of Brahmins are consistent with their Mesopotamian historical origins. Levites among Rabbinic Jews have however acquired a different genetic footprint largely due to their long history as hereditary priests in Egypt. The fact that conversion into Alevism until this day remains fully possible illustrates that tribal initiation into the Levite ‘tribe’ has happened innumerable times throughout history, including in Median Judaism as well.

7. Sacerdotal Nation

Judaism is an indigenous tribal religion but is far from limited to Rabbinic Judaism as is often presumed. The united monarchy of the Kingdom of Israel was split into two states in 930 BCE and the religious jurisdiction of Israel was therefore also split in two, namely the Southern Jurisdiction of Judah and the Northern Jurisdiction of Israel.

The Northern Jurisdiction of Israel has however already long since split into a large number of highly distinctive jurisdictions. Samaritanism, Druzism, Bektashism (of Alevi-Bektashi Judaism) and to some extent Alawism are four independent denominations of the Northern Jurisdiction that managed to survive to some extent inside the land of Israel itself. Alawism, Alevi-Bektashi, Druzism, Samaritanism, Yarsanism and Yezidism constitute the Priestly Judaism of Median Judaism in the Middle East as they have always been religiously led by their own Kohanim, the Israelite hereditary royal priests descended from David and Solomon.

Yet the first split in religious legal tradition occurred when the ruling EN hereditary priests of Sumer (from whom Levites are descended) fled the country with the collapse of the last Sumerian state in 1940 BCE, namely from the Neo-Sumerian Empire which was ruled by the Ur III dynasty. This led to a split into three main jurisdictions; 1) the Canaanite-Egyptian and later Israelite EN, 2) the Mandaean EN who remained in Sumer and 3) the Iranic EN. The EN were originally the sacerdotal ruling caste in Sumer which by extension later became the sacerdotal nation of the ancient indigenous people and land of Israel.

The EN considered land as divinely given and the notion of Canaan as the sacred land appeared already in Sumerian religion and was there known as the geographically unspecified Aratta yet became known as Airyanəm Vaējah (literally the Ejaculation [river, seed, bloodline] of the Urians) among the Iranic EN. Airyanəm although exoterically appearing as an Old Iranian grammatical inflection is a theomorphic Sumerian composite name of Ur-Ea-Inanna with Ur being the capital of the Neo-Sumerian Empire, Ea being another name for the Sumerian male deity Enki (known as Yah in the Israelite Judaism as used in a number of theomorphic Israelite names, including Yehuda) and Inanna being the most important female deity in the Sumerian pantheon, which in Hebrew/Canaanite became known as the Elohim, the angelic ‘family’ of the one supreme deity.

The Semitic term for “land” (in Hebrew Eretz, Aretz) is phonetically similar and clearly associated with the name Aratta in Sumerian. The Hebrew grammatical form Artza (meaning “to the land” in Hebrew) is either derived from the Sumerian Aratta or else formed the basis of the Sumerian word as the Land of Israel is known as Eretz Israel in Hebrew. The ancient human-constructed platform in central Jerusalem long known as simply Zion but for centuries already now known as the Temple Mount was originally a Sumerian ziggurat. The Hebrew word Tsion is derived from the theomorphic D-Ea-An meaning the letter Dingir for deity, Ea/Yah (Enki) and An the supreme Sumerian deity. The fact that the Zion ziggurat in Jerusalem is considered the abode of the Shekhinah (the divine presence, the female aspect of the God of Israel) indicates that the ziggurat may also have served as a grave monument, most likely for a high priestess recognized as a divine avatar.

The Aliyah (physical and spiritual ascent in Judaism) probably originally referred to the arduous trek required for Sumerians ascending from the Jordan Valley depression north of the Dead Sea to the mountainous Zion ziggurat. Jerusalem lies 754 meter above the ocean level and the Dead Sea is currently situated 429 meters below the ocean level although the Dead Sea has been shrinking in recent decades. The rapid ascent required (Hebrew Aliyah ba’regel meaning “Ascent by foot”) for this trek was however still extremely significant even in Sumerian times. The name Jerusalem (Hebrew Yerushalayim) is itself a theomorphic composite of Yah-Ur-w-Salim, meaning Ea-Ur AND Salim referring to Ea/Yah (Enki), Ur the capital of the Neo-Sumerian Empire and the Canaanite deity Shalim.

Part of the Iranic EN jurisdiction merged with the Northern Jurisdiction of Israel with the appearance of the Median Empire in the 7th century BCE as an eventual historical outcome of the Assyrian deportations of the Israelite population of the Northern Kingdom of Israel to Media during the course of the 8th century BCE. EN generally have always had sacerdotal hereditary status as a priestly hereditary caste, yet this sacerdotal status was extended into the founding of one sacerdotal nation in ancient Israel which was then extended to Media and was later brought by the Maggid (“Magi”) Kohanim to what became the Para-Jewish peoples of Africa and Asia such as the Igbo and the Japanese practicing ancient “syncretistic” forms of Median Crypto-Judaism known as Odinani (Sumerian D*Inanna)and Shintoism respectively. Shinto not coincidentally simply means path, just like the Hebrew word halakhah for rabbinically Jewish law.

8. House of David

Rabbinic Jews are divided into three types of patrilineage; (1) Kohanim, (2) Levites and (3) Israelites and this division is found inside Priestly Judaism as well. Genetic studies have confirmed that the majority of Kohanim among rabbinic Jews are indeed descended from a common male ancestor – who in the Hebrew Bible is named as Aaron the high priest, brother of Moses. However, if as historians believe Moses and Aaron are exoteric literary characters and not really historical personalities then this raises the question from whom Kohanim are actually descended?

Alevi Dedes (i.e. Alevi Davidians meaning Alevi Kohanim) are religiously connected with King David in multiple ways as the expected mashiach (messiah) in Rabbinic Judaism is traditionally expected to be a patrilineal descendant of King David. This helps explain the consistent and utmost emphasis on retaining the patrilineage of Kohanim in both Rabbinic Judaism and Priestly Judaism in accordance with universal royal convention as Kohanim are royal patrilineal descendants of the polygamous King David, constituting the House of David with Levites being the aristocracy (descended from the En local rulers in ancient Sumer) and everyone else known as “Israelites” namely ordinary Jews.

The Tel Dan Stele from the 8th or 9th century BCE which mentions the House of David.

This also helps explain why Alevis literally treat Alevi Dedes as kings. Otherwise, how would it logically actually be possible to verify that the mashiach (messiah) is truly a confirmed patrilineal descendant of King David if supposedly there are no genealogical records in this regard? Furthermore as already pointed out, King David’s son and successor King Solomon is described in the biblical account as having had 700 royal wives and 300 concubines which obviously provided quite significant demographic basis for the continued proliferation of the world’s oldest and largest, still existing royal family.

The historical fact that a number of very important historical rabbis exoterically claimed Davidic descent only means that they were fully aware of the Davidic ancestry of the Kohanim and deliberately kept it secret in order to protect the Kohanim from being singled out for persecution by religious imperialism. By saying so, they essentially proclaimed that they as eminent poskim (rabbinic decisors) of their respective Jewish generations of course knew the historical truth on this matter and that it would be publically revealed at the appropriate time in the future as the Davidic Mashiach (Hebrew Mashiach ben David) in Rabbinic Judaism is expected to be a king of Israel (Hebrew Melekh HaMashiach or in idiomatic English his Majesty the Messiah) in the genealogical capacity of being a direct patrilineal descendant of King David.

This is particularly important knowledge from the perspective of Halakha (Rabbinic law) as the expected Mashiach of Judaism should therefore be someone of kohanite patrilineal ancestry. The Kohanim (the House of David) are hence the world’s oldest (3000 years old) royal family with a very significant demographic presence.

9. Gender and Sexuality

Although in origin, content and essence still being a form of Sumerian religion, Judaism was founded by the transgender Pharaoh Akhenaten. Different forms of Judaism assign different exoteric founders such as the exoteric Moses in Open Judaism. Denominations of Priestly Judaism in the Middle East each assign different medieval exoteric founders. These are however precisely mere exoteric founders disguising the Atenist founding of Judaism and before that its origin as gynocentric Sumerian religion itself.

Why then have these Sumero-Egyptian historical origins been so rather well hidden? The general answer is that ritual sex at Sumerian temples was considered scandalous and the more specific answer is that sex between prominent females was considered even more scandalous. After all, Akhenaten who is known to have had five wives was an anatomic female who had sexual relations with other anatomic females. This practice of prominent females having sex with each other was apparently seen as so terribly shameful that it could not even be written down, but rather it was felt necessary to altogether erase the transgender Akhenaten from the state records of Egypt.

A similar erasure was done in the Israelite state records known as the Hebrew Bible whereby the gynocentric Sumerian religious origins of Judaism were apparently partially erased without however altering the fundamentally Sumerian nature of Judaism. This erasure in Israelite state records may likely have commenced after the 13th century BCE Egyptian genocide against ancient Israel. The Israelites apparently felt that that their Sumerian and Atenist religious origins placed them in real physical danger and so they felt compelled to protect themselves by historiographical denial from a recurrence of the Egyptian genocide against the Israelites.

The Israelite historiography thus both retained and disguised the ancient history of the religion of Judaism. The dating of the four exoduses has however remained unchanged in the biblical account while otherwise esotericaly obfuscating the real origins and religious history of Judaism.

Sumerian religion was polytheistic with the male Utu (deity of the sun) and the female Inanna (deity of sexuality and war) becoming the two most important deities in southern Mesopotamia. The historical origin of ritual gender segregation in Judaism probably lies in female priests and male priests in part having had different and separate religious ceremonies in different temples in Sumerian religion as ritual sex in temples was an important component in Sumerian religion. However, the practice of women having religious ritual sex with each other was something so scandalous and apparently threatening that this knowledge had to be suppressed altogether. Women having sex with each other was notably however not proscribed by Jewish religious law prior to the Shulchan Aruch (published by rabbi Yosef Karo in 1563 CE) and it is not even considered as constituting marital infidelity under Jewish law for a heterosexually married woman to have sex with another woman.

After the collapse of Sumerian civilization in 1940 BCE, the leading families of Sumer who were both rulers and priests and known as EN, fled Sumer for Canaan and later became established in Egypt where they lived for four centuries. The transgender Pharaoh Akhenaten was the one who effectively founded what is now known as Judaism. Akhenaten was considered to have been an incarnation of the Sumerian goddess Inanna and Akhenaten therefore instituted that only the sun god (meaning Sumerian Utu) should be the subject of worship. Thus Akhenaten was the body of God and the sun was her powerful soul and this achieved the unity of God into one body and one soul. Hence the religious pantheon was transformed into one henotheist transgendered deity with assisting angels. God in the conception of Esoteric Judaism is transgendered with a soul of one gender and a body of another gender. Yet, Priestly Judaism has openly retained the concept of divine/angelic avatars being carried in Human wombs and walking on Earth.

The fact that Judaism has remained secretive about its Sumerian origins also meant that Inanna was suppressed in favor of the seemingly ‘almighty’ Utu, i.e. the sun. The God of Israel became masculinized yet retained the cognitive profile of the Sumerian goddess Inanna in remaining the deity of both love and war. The masculinization that resulted from the semiotic merger of Inanna and Utu was apparently done so as to hide the great unspeakable secret that Akhenaten was anatomically female yet had sex with others who were likewise anatomically female.

In order to survive in a world dominated by Christian religious imperialism and later Muslim religious imperialism Rabbinic Judaism had to become even more secretive about its own teachings and its very seemingly scandalous origins in Sumer and Egypt. Most other forms of Judaism for similar reasons even completely hid the fact that they were Jewish.

King Solomon loved many foreign women and the daughter of Pharaoh; Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites. Of the nations about which the Lord had said to the Children of Israel, “You shall not go (mingle) among them and they shall not come among you, for certainly they will sway your heart after their deities.” To these did Solomon cleave to love [them]. And he had seven hundred royal wives and three hundred concubines, and his wives turned away his heart. And it was at the time of Solomon’s old age, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods, and his heart was not whole with the Lord, His God, like the heart of David his father. And Solomon went after Ashtoreth, the goddess of the Zidonians and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites. And Solomon did what was displeasing to the Lord, and he was not completely devoted to the Lord as was David his father. Then did Solomon build a high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab on the mountain that is before Jerusalem and for Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon. And so he did for all of his alien wives who offered incense and slaughtered sacrifices to their deities.

I Kings 11:1-8

The many wives (700) and concubines (300) of King Solomon are described in the Hebrew Bible as priestesses religiously leading King Solomon astray by introducing Animal Sacrifice. They were clearly not sex slaves confined to a closed harem as they were mobile in maintaining their own religious institutions. However, the number of spouses of Solomon was such that in order to not live in sexual abstinence the females must have needed to have sex among themselves and may therefore have practiced same-sex religious Sumerian ritual sex at Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem long before the Kohanim later became established as the priestly caste firmly in control of religious rituals of the First Temple. The biblical text makes very clear that these were not mere wives but priestesses as well.

Similarly the famous companionship between David and Jonathan indicates an early existence of formalized same-sex companionships which for some also no doubt had an intimate sexual aspect as sexual homoeroticism exists in all Human cultures. This is still in existence and is known as Chavruta in Rabbinic Judaism and Müsahiplik in Alevi-Bektashi Judaism.

Thus while Israelite Judaism abolished heterosexual sex temples (often derogatively misnamed as so called temple prostitution) in Canaan, it had institutions and rituals not only for companionships between one male and one or several females but also for intimate relations among females and companionships between two males. This has survived in Priestly Judaism in the form of ritual sex between unmarried females (including between unmarried Priestesses of Inanna among the Yezidis) as well as in the form of additional matrimony between two alredy married couples, including both “wife-swapping” and same-sex sexual relations. However, the outrageously libelous accusations that Alevis, Bektashis and Dönmeh practice heterosexual group sex in dark rooms are clearly really completely unfounded as any such acts would clearly be ground for religious excommunication indeed and would if widely practices have led to disastrous proliferation of sexually transmitted diseases (STD). Leading Sabbateans including among the Dönmeh do however still practice incestuos marriage as did Pharaoh Akhenaten.

As Sumerian culture, religion and civilization spread across the ancient world, Inanna was given other names such as Isis in Egypt and Asherah in Canaan. While in Egypt, the Levites were most probably priests of Isis, the focus on the male soul of Akhenaten (i.e. Sumerian Utu) meant that Inanna as the female aspect of God was demoted into an senior angel in Judaism and much later demonized into a devil in Zoroastrianism, Christianity and Islam.

Inanna depicted with two triangles, one on her head and another in her genital area. Two interlaid triangles together constitute what came to be known as the Shield/Star of David.
Inanna depicted with two triangles, one on her head and another in her genital area. Two interlaid triangles together constitute what came to be known as the Shield/Star of David.

Thus HaSatan in Rabbinic Judaism is a senior angel and an agent provocateur acting entirely on orders from God and so HaSatan is not considered evil or a devil in Rabbinic Judaism but is rather giving Humans freedom of choice and freedom of action by purposely offering bad advice. This mimics the psychology of how most males restrain their desires for having sexual relations with many different females and so HaSatan of Rabbinic Judaism is neither evil nor a devil but is rather the inherently always ambivalent Inanna. This certainly very much makes sense as the Sumerian Inanna was indeed the goddess of sexuality and war and so sexual temptation remained the task of Inanna under the new title of HaSatan which importantly in Hebrew is a title (“obstructor”) and not a name.

The name “Inanna” therefore obviously remains the secret religious name of the deity of Israel in simply being the original name of this deity. The tetragrammon YHWH is simply the tribal name Yehudah YHWDH (Judah in English) minus the Hebrew letter dalet (Sumerian dingir denoting deity) symbolizing the shepherd-king David as Dumuzid, the shepherd who married Inanna in Sumerian mythology. The Crypto-Jewish Yezidis, similarly refer to God as Khuda and the name Yezidi itself means Yehudi (Jew in Hebrew) although apparently what was originally the same word was given different meanings and subsequently diverged phonetically during 27 centuries since the Assyrian deportations of the people of the northern Kingdom of Israel. YHWDH is itself a Hebrew abbreviation, namely YHWD”H meaning Yah hu David Hamelekh, i.e. literally Yah, he is King David.

Hu is depicted to the right.

Deeper yet in etymology Yah and Hu denote the Egyptian gods of Sia and Hu, meaning that Sia (god of perception and writing) and Hu (god of creation) were unified in the person of King David as Dumuzid. Yah/Sia is however originally derived from Sumerian Ea, an alternative name for the Sumerian deity Enki. God is also referred to as Hu and as Huda in the Crypto-Jewish Alevism. In Rabbinic Judaism, reference to God is often written as ´h, namely the Hebrew letter he with a diacritic sign in exoterically signifying the Hebrew word hashem (i.e. the name, meaning the name of  God) yet this was originally apparently a reference to Heh, the Egyptian god of infinity.

Regions of the tribes of ancient Israel as per the biblical narrative.

Some or most of the names of the ancient tribes of Israel, such Yehudah (Judah) were likely adopted only after most of the peoples of Canaan accepted the Levites as as their religious leaders and thus also accepted the Sumero-Egyptian religion of the Levites which therefore merged with Canaanite religion. The retroactive renaming of regions and/pre-Israelite ethnic formations as Israelite tribes may have been done by the Levites in inventing a genealogical narrative for the purpose of achieving or maintaining tribal reconciliation in the land. The Hebrew Bible describes King David as being descended from Ruth the Moabite and this certainly gives us a clue as to the ethnic origins of the so called tribe of Judah considering that Judah and Moab lived on different sides of the Dead Sea and were thus geographically near to each other.

Religions usually view deities as anthropomorphic in a psychological sense and most religions in ancient times also usually regarded deities as essentially being persons with at least partly Human bodies yet endowed with extensive natural religious powers. There is a very famous rabbinically Jewish song originally from the Talmud which describes King David as living and existing which would be a somewhat peculiar description of a long since dead man unless of course that very person was actually literally considered divine. This sentence is sung five times and apparently so as hasten the return of a reborn David to his former position and crucially so in the shape of one of his direct descendants descendants of Kohanite patrilineage:

The marriage between Inanna and Dumuzid.
The marriage between Inanna and Dumuzid.

“David, king of Israel; lives, lives and exists!” (Hebrew: David Melekh Israel; Chai, Chai, Vekayam!)

While Isis was often portrayed with a sun disc on her head, the other solar deity was Ra (the equivalent of the Sumerian Utu) also known as Amun-Ra and later becoming identical to Horus, the son of Isis. However ra in Hebrew literally means evil and as the cult of Ra was suppressed under Atenism, this may likely have formed the early stages of what developed into fullblown demonization in Zoroastrianism, Christianity and Islam.

In Yezidi narrative, Melek Taus (Hebrew Melekh David, i.e. King David) who is prejudicially confused by Muslims and  Christians with the “devil” of Islam and Christianity is described as having spent time in the Underword, yet returned from there as did the goddess Inanna in Sumerian mythology. The name Shaitan in Yezidism is thus not the name of a powerful demon, but rather a divine designation for the goddess Inanna (equivalent to the female aspect of the God of Israel) and so is it prohibited to pronounce just as it prohibited to pronounce the tetragramman YHWH in Rabbinic Judaism. In fact, both Yezidis and Rabbinic Jews have been falsely accused of being devil worshipers when it is rather the goddess Inanna who has been carefully hidden.

It is clear that the various conceptions of a devil in Zoroastrianism (Angra Mainyu who developed into Ahriman), Christianity (Satan) and Islam (Iblis) are the result of comprehensive misogynistic demonization of Inanna on the part of religious imperialism. The fear of a devil was no doubt very useful for religious imperialism in enforcing religious and political submission among conquered peoples.

10. Modernity

During the era of European colonialism, European imperialists discovered numerous Para-Jewish peoples in Africa and Asia that are still even today to varying degrees practicing Maggid Judaism. In the racialized thinking of European colonialism of the time these Para-Jewish peoples were they expected by the Western “explorers” to be in significant part genetic descendants of “the lost tribes of Israel” when in fact these are rather peoples whose ancestors were converted to Maggid Judaism by Maggid hereditary priests travelling the world for trade in ancient times.

Some Para-Jewish peoples in Asia and Africa were converted to Christianity by Western missionaries during the period of European colonialism although different Para-Jewish peoples to varying degrees still practice Maggid Judaism. Many openly admitted to their being religiously descended from the Northern Jurisdiction of Israel.

Most Crypto-Jewish peoples in Islamdom did in contrast remain highly secretive about their being Jewish and this includes the various Middle Eastern denominations of Priestly Judaism. This white spot which is Islamdom on the world map of documented Para-Jewish peoples certainly helps explain why historians failed to connect the dots with regard to the very Para-Jewish peoples that Euro-Christian imperialists encountered in Asia and Africa.

The Jewish Wilderness (Dasht-e Yahudi)
The Jewish Wilderness (Dasht-e Yahudi)

Euro-Christian colonialists who attempted to “identify” so called lost tribes in Asia and Africa actually encountered real-world practitioners of Maggid Judaism and so they made comparisions with the Hebrew Bible and Rabbinic Judaism only. Yet, these Para-Jewish peoples were originally converted by hereditary priests of Priestly Judaism and certainly not by rabbis of Rabbinic Judaism and so each of these Para-Jewish peoples will need to be carefully anthropologically compared with the various denominations and cultures of Priestly Judaism as well as of course with each other. Also, understanding the history of Priestly Judaism specifically and Maggid Judaism generally in an integrated way will help shed much light on biblical narratives so as to identify the original geographic and historical contexts of those very narratives.

Did the Maggids also reach the Americas?
Tefillin (phylacteries) in pre-Columbian Mexico

In fact, the reason why Euro-Christian “explorers” found presumed “lost tribes” everywhere is that the Median Kohanite Maggids (known historically in Latin as the “Magis”) who travelled in trade worldwide syncretistically converted virtually the entire humanity to Median Judaism. This is why there are e.g. indigenous Hawaiian kohanim (Hawaiian kahuna) and this is why tefillin (phylacteries) existed in pre-Columbian Mexico. In fact, social anthropology has neglected to systematically make comparative studies in hereditary priesthood (including hereditary priestly castes) around the world. Kohanim in Shinto Judaism (“Shintoism” a form of Median Judaism) are known as kannushi and hereditary priesthood is even known to have existed in pre-Christian Scandinavian culture which until today retains Inanna celebration (Swedish Lucia) and the celebration of Median Newroz (“Walpurgis Night”). The spread of Median Judaism worldwide is also one important reason why ethnic religions worldwide are so similar in so many respects, including belief in a supreme deity.

Bektashism speaks about the Messiah of the Generation and Rabbinic Judaism openly states that there is a person in every generation capable of becoming the Messiah although the expected Messiah is supposed to have David patrilineage. Rabbinic Judaism was thus devised among the various forms of Judaism of the ancient world to become the home for safely hiding continuing, yet increasingly genetically/cognitively advanced reincarnations of Inanna of Davidic patrilineage.

Portrait of Sabbatai Zevi with a characteristically Bektashi moustache by a non-Jewish European artist.

Rabbi Sabbatai Zevi (1626-1676), a Sephardic rabbi of Romaniote (Judeo-Greek) ancestry broke the sacred lineage by openly exposing himself as the already recognized Messiah of the Generation, the sacerdotal nominal King of Israel. Sabbatai Zevi thus exposed some of the Sumerian secrets of Judaism much like Niccolò Machiavelli exposed some of the secrets of the Great Tradition of the Art of Writing.

Sabbatai Zevi however never converted to Islam but rather merely joined the Crypto-Jewish Bektashi order of Alevi-Bektashi Judaism whose Jewishness he was already familiar with as he was raised as the nominal King of Israel from birth and therefore educated in the Sumerian secrets of Judaism. Sabbatai Zevi was therefore not a false messiah but rather a failed messiah. Sabbateans engage in eugenic practices of human breeding for increasingly powerful divinity, including by means of incestuous marriage as did already Pharaoh Akhenaten.

The political failure of Sabbatai Zevi caused the Sabbatean movement centered on the messianic status of Sabbatai Zevi to go underground. Hassidism (Hebrew Chassidut) thus emerged as the major Crypto-Sabbatean movement in Europe as led by Hassidic rebbes, patrilineal descendants of Sabbatai Zevi and therefore ultimately descended from King David and before that from Pharaoh Akhenaten and Sumerian kings. While most Hassidic Jews perished in the Holocaust did Hassidic rebbes and the small European yeshiva elite succeed in escaping Europe for North America and the land of Israel. Hassidic rebbe families marry among themselves for the purposes of religious breeding but also due to royal endogamy traditionally being a royal convention indeed.

Mustafa Barzani (1903-1979) head of the Kohanite Dönmeh Barzani clan and therefore also head of the princely House of Adiabene.

In the 20th century, the Dönmeh Sabbateans entered politics in the person of Mustafa Kemal “Atatürk” (1881-1938) as well as the Derin Devlet (Turkish “Deep State”), a Dönmeh-led Turkish military intelligence agency which he created and which has exercised ultimate control over the Turkish armed forces and the Republic of Turkey ever since. In parallel did members of the ethnically Crypto-Jewish Alawite denomination gain control over the Republic of Syria (yet without knowing that they were Jewish) and the Zionist movement reestablished the long awaited renewed indigenous Jewish state in the western land of Israel. The Dönmeh Barzani clan (which is the surviving princely branch of the Jewish Royal House of Adiabene) with Israeli help and with consent from the Derin Devlet also managed to establish the nucleus of a Kurdish state in Iraqi Kurdistan; the first attempt collapsed although the second attempt succeeded.

albania_confessional_map_with_regions_circa_1900-1
Geographical distribution of religious denominations in Albania in the early 20th century.

The Dönmeh Jewish community in the Middle East and the Balkans numbers about one million although most are not of rabbinically Jewish origin but are rather mostly Alevis and Bektashis who became adherents of Sabbatai Zevi. There are especially many Dönmeh among ethnically Albanian Bektashis as Bektashis despite enforced Ottoman Islamization still make up a large proportion of ethnic Albanians. The core Dönmeh of rabbinically Jewish (mostly Sephardic) genetic origin in Turkey have since the 20th century married with and assimilated into the wider Alevi-Bektashi Dönmeh community. The wider Sabbatean community worldwide has however continued to be led by a succession of patrilineal descendants of Sabbatai Zevi who until the 20th centurey lead a carefully hidden life within European Crypto-Sabbatean Hassidism while maintaining the nominal title King of Israel which was transferred from grandfather to grandson.

Coat of Arms of Israel

Many Zionist leaders came from Sabbatean families within Hassidism and like Sabbateans in Turkey, many become secularizers. Even the Messiah of the Generation (who grew up Sabbatean Haredi and whose mother was a girl from the Dönmeh Barzani clan) turned completely secular and later became instrumental in the founding of the State of Israel and the first Free Kurdistan, building the Israeli intelligence community and the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) until his demise and subsequent religiously recognized reincarnation. Israel was thus established as a secret “constitutional” monarchy actually named the “Kingdom of Israel”. Israel, Turkey and Free Kurdistan were thus all established as “Dönmeh” states.

The chain of generations of eugenic breeding for divinity therefore is seen as an eschatological process culminating in the birth of the most powerful incarnation of Inanna ever as a result of millennia of eugenic royal messianic breeding for divinity. Every Messiah of the Generation was considered as capable of genetically designing not only his/her next reincarnation but indeed genetically designing other deities as well as subsequent to their respective conceptions. Ancient Sumerian religious eugenics is also the reason why Jewish genetic groups (Ashkenazi Jews, Sephardi Jews, Mizrahi Jews and others) and some Crypto-Jewish genetic groups (Mandaeans, various Aramean genetic groups, the Dönmeh, Brahmins, Jains, Parsis and Kerala Christians) have developed higher average IQs than historically surrounding genetic groups.

theodor_herzl
Theodor Herzl (1860-1904) founded the liberal-democratic Zionist movement.

Humans are divided into three biological categories; 1) deities, 2) angels and 3) ordinary humans. Deities and angels are considered as having in part extraterrestrial, i.e. “divine” genetic origin although an ordinary human can become an angel or a deity by means of ibur, the genetic upgrade of the soul. Inanna or “God” is the most powerful of all deities and leads the angelic hierarchy of deities and angels. Rabbinic Judaism however has always been about protecting the divine Davidic lineage and successive reincarnations of Inanna by means of religious eugenics until the most powerful ever reincarnation of Inanna is able to bring peace and redemption.

Zionism succeeded in terms of implementing most of its stated vision, yet failed in ignoring Palestinians and other Crypto-Jewish peoples, something which long made Israel relatively isolated in the region. 20th century Zionism also failed in ignoring other aspects of the messianic process such as the return to plant-based diets. The next stage in the trajectory of Zionism therefore includes phasing out religious imperialism by means of returning humanity to the Sumerian pro-sexual, gynocentric origins of both Open Judaism and the various denominations worldwide of Median Judaism.
