Georgia: Israel’s Home Sweet Home

By Hesham Tillawi, PhD

The Israeli Georgian Connection is more than a thousand years old. Most of the Jewish residents of Israel are of the same stock as of the Jews of Georgia. Non should be shocked to discover the depth of Israel’s involvement in the Georgian/Russian conflict. Once examined, the historical blood relation between Israeli Jews and Georgian Jews, it all becomes clear. Let us take a look first at the current relationship after which we will prove the historical connection between them a little later.



Georgian Minister Temur Yakobashvili said Saturday August 9, 2008 one day after Georgia attacked South Ossetia–“The Israelis should be proud of themselves for the Israeli training and education received by the Georgian soldiers…”

The Jerusalem Post on August 12, 2008 reported: “Georgian Prime Minister Vladimer (Lado) Gurgenidze(Jewish) made a special call to Israel Tuesday morning to receive a blessing from one of the Haredi community’s most important rabbis and spiritual leaders, Rabbi Aharon Leib Steinman.” The Prime Minister of Georgia, principally a nation of Orthodox Christians called Rabbi Steinman saying ‘I’ve heard he is a holy man. I want him to pray for us and our state.’

In addition to the many government officials in Georgia who are ‘Jewish‘ in one way or another is one man in particular, Davit Kezerashvili who holds the position of Defense Minister and who just so happens also to hold Israeli citizenship. Interestingly, his last name happens to be ‘Kezerashvili’ which translates in the Georgian language to ‘child-of-the-Kezer(khazar)’.

Besides the aforementioned men, over a 1000 Israeli military trainers are in Georgia as well as many retired Israeli Generals who have made Georgia home. Lasha Zhvania, Georgia’s former Ambassador to Israel who won election to Georgia’s parliament back on May 21 on the promise to increase Israeli tourism and investments in his country. His mother is Jewish, and in 1988, she brought him to Israel to meet his grandfather, aunts, and other relatives. After that, he returned to Israel every year to get together with relatives dispersed in Kiryat Bialik, Haifa, Nahariya and Netanya. Tens of thousands of Israelis made Georgia their favorite tourists destination. It is clear that the relationship between Georgia and Israel is more than just a political or diplomatic relationship, it seems they also have a Jewish connection and maybe Jewish blood that dates back over 1400 years ago.

Author Arthur Koestler, a Jew himself wrote ‘The evidence adds up to a strong case in favor of those modern historians — whether Austrian, Israeli or Polish — who, independently from each other, have argued that the bulk of modern Jewry is not of Palestinian, but of Caucasian origin. The mainstream of Jewish migrations did not flow from the Mediterranean across France and Germany to the east and then back again. The stream moved in a consistently westerly direction, from the Caucasus through the Ukraine into Poland and thence into Central Europe. When that unprecedented mass-settlement in Poland came into being, there were simply not enough Jews around in the west to account for it; while in the east a whole nation was on the move to new frontiers.” The Caucasus is where the Georgians dwelled and still do. Lets follow this a little deeper to see if we can make a connection between the Jews of Georgia who found themselves on top of Georgia’s political hierarchy with the help of our own CIA and the Jews of Israel who came to Palestine after WWI and II which makes the bulk of Israeli Jews.

Abraham Poliak, an Israeli professor of Medieval Jewish History asked ‘How far we can go in regarding this [Khazar] Jewry as the nucleus of the large Jewish settlement in Eastern Europe? The descendants of this settlement constitute now the large majority of world Jewry.” Austrian historian Kutschera wrote that ‘Eastern European Jews are entirely of Khazarian origin. Even Western Europe Jews who spoke Yiddish or a derivative off such as the Jews of France and Germany had to have came from the Khazar Jews due to the fact that there are no trace of Yiddish in any Western European language.

For those unfamiliar with the term ‘Khazar,’ it was a person from the Khazar Kingdom which occupied the land between the Caspian Sea and the Black Sea. Until the 9th century the Khazars were the masters of the land, very rich due to its vast resources, strategic location and its unrealistic taxation (extortion) systems of surrounding kingdoms. The Khazars adopted the Jewish religion after being pressured to adopt a monotheistic religion similar to the Christians in the West or the Muslims in the East, but decided to adopt Judaism in order to remain independent of the other two religions of the time. The Khazar Kingdom enjoyed strength and prosperity which allowed it to increase its size to include the regions north of the Black Sea and the adjoining steppe and forest regions of the Dnieper. The Khazars controlled the southern half of Eastern Europe for a century and a half, and presented a mighty bulwark, blocking the Ural-Caspian gateway from Asia into Europe. During this whole period, they held back the onslaught of the nomadic tribes from the East.

“The collapse of the Hun Empire after Attila’s death left a power-vacuum in Eastern Europe, through which once more, wave after wave of nomadic hordes swept from east to west, prominent among them the Uigurs and Avars. The Khazars during most of this period seemed to be happily occupied with raiding the rich trans-Caucasian regions of Georgia and Armenia, and collecting precious plunder. During the second half of the sixth century they became the dominant force among the tribes north of the Caucasus”

In 965 AD Russ prince Svyatoslav of Kiev, undertook many military campaigns which led to the breaking up of the Khazar Empire. The Khazar state may have survived until the middle of the 12th century where from 965 AD until its destruction went through many periods of war, peace, and alliances with the Arabs, the Russ, the Persians and the Byzantines separately or in conjunction. Many of its subjects adopted either Islam or Christianity and those who decided to keep their faith migrated to Eastern Europe, Russia or migrated to the south as we are told by Persian poet, Khakani (circa 1106-90) who spent most of his life as a civil servant in the Caucasus and had first hand knowledge of the Caucasian tribes. Khakani told us of ‘Devent Khazars’ where Darband being the defile or ‘turnstile’ between the Caucasus and the Black Sea through which the Khazars used to raid Georgia in the old days. Therefore, it is a fact of history that many Khazar Jews went through this passageway to take refuge in Georgia.

It took 800 years for the Khazar Jews to meet again, after going through Russia, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, and Palestine before they joined forces, again, with their brethren in Georgia against their old arch enemy, the Russ. What took place on August 8, 2008 in South Ossetia proves two points: first, that the Khazar Jews never forgot the war of 965 AD and their defeat by the Russians and (2) today’s “Jews” in “Israel” have no historical claim to the land of Palestine.

Once again we see Zionism, manifesting itself in the illegal state of “Israel” dragging the World into yet another new conflict between a nuclear armed Russia and a nuclear armed US.

  1. Proud Goy Says:

    Well spoken Hesham Tillawi. Accurate historically and you know it because when a zionist ashkenazi “jew” (khazar) reads the truth he begins to call a person names. Like the idiot poster above.

  2. Ramsey Says:

    Good article.

  3. Vlad Says:

    That is a very funny comment that says it all–(the one from ggg) when Zionist propaganda does not work, the Zionists resort to infantile name caling. Juxtapose the scholarly research provided by the author of this article with the comment from ggg.

  4. John Says:


    Great article and so true. I would like to add two points to provide further references and details in support of the author.

    1. The majority of the present-day “Jews” are indeed descendents of the caucasian Khazars (such as the Ashkenazi and the Turko-European khazars) that converted to Judaism.

    An excellent article on called “An invention called the Jewish
    people” by a Jewish historian shows this clearly and is available at:

    For extensive research on khazars (caucasians) who converted to Judaism, see:

    Also see the book “THE THIRTEENTH TRIBE”, by Arthur Koestler (Random House).

    No serious anthropologist believes in a separate race called “Jews”.

    Regarding the author’s statement that the Jewish people have no claim to the land of Palestine, here is more proof.

    2. Moses and Exodus Myths. The Torah (Old Testament) is filled with myths such as a man called Moses, the myth of Exodus and the persecution of Jews by an Egyptian king who allegedly enslaved them. The techniques of higher criticism showed that the Old Testament was weaved together out of four source documents and was produced much later than claimed.

    Furthermore, archaelogical and historical evidence has repeatedly proven the stories of Moses, Exodus, Abraham, Joshua, King David, etc. to be basically myths and the Old Testament to be great literature, not history.

    For eg., according to Prof. Ze’ev Herzog who teaches in the Department of Archaeology and Ancient Near Eastern Studies at Tel Aviv University, in an article entitled “Deconstructing the Walls of Jericho”:

    “This is what archaeologists have learned from their excavations in the Land of Israel: the
    Israelites were never in Egypt, did not wander in the desert, did not conquer the land in a
    military campaign and did not pass it on to the 12 tribes of Israel. Perhaps even harder to
    swallow is the fact that the united monarchy of David and Solomon, which is described
    by the Bible as a regional power, was at most a small tribal kingdom. And it will come as
    an unpleasant shock to many that the God of Israel, Jehovah, had a female consort and
    that the early Israelite religion adopted monotheism only in the waning period of the
    monarchy and not at Mount Sinai. Most of those who are engaged in scientific work in
    the interlocking spheres of the Bible, archaeology and the history of the Jewish people -and who once went into the field looking for proof to corroborate the Bible story – now
    agree that the historic events relating to the stages of the Jewish people’s emergence are
    radically different from what that story tells.” (in an article in the Jewish magazine
    Haaretz, as republished on

    Another excellent book by British writers Gandy and Freke proves that Moses and
    Exodus are pure myths and Moses never really existed and the Exodus never happened.

    See: The Laughing Jesus: Religious Lies and Gnostic Wisdom, by Timothy Freke
    and Peter Gandy.

    The fact is there was no Abraham, Moses, nor any King David, no enslavement in
    Egypt, and no Exodus. All these stories are myths copied from prevalent Zorastrian and
    Egyptian myths (such as Sargon myth) prevalent around that time in the Middle East and
    projected back in time. Even as far back as 1927, Historian G F Moore concluded: “Many
    scholars are convinced that this whole system of ideas was appropriated by the Jews from
    the Zoroastrians.”

  5. Thanks you Mr. Tillawi for your excellent journalism. It is very nice to have your reporting and research, I have learned a great deal. Please keep up the good work.

    The attack by Georgia on South Ossetia is a bit suspicious. I don’t see how Georgia could have possibly thought they would get away with it, and it looked to be a looting expedition with ethnic cleansing added in. Do you think this might be “instantiating” something in discouse, as a “performance”, so as to secure something that has already been done, say Iraq or maybe Bosnia, or to do some other invasion or terrorism?

  6. Beau Leclerque Says:

    If I was informed correctly, “Ashkenaz” means “German” in Hebrew language, and “Ashkenazim” is the plural. So you could say that it means “German people”. But as both Jews and pseudo-Jews have genetically nothing to do with Germany, I wonder why they would call themselves that way. To be able to lay another false claim, like in Palestine?

  7. petr vojta Says:

    No wonder that coward night attack had all the marks of cruel,unhuman attacks Israel has been using against Palestiniene and other states.
    I am sick and tired hiring all these never ending crimes of Nazi zionist regime occupaing not only arab lands but world media and US goverment.
    I am not ashame to say , when bombs shoud be faling down I hope it will be on NAZI Israel.Israel is CANCER of the Middle East and treat to world peace.
    Destroy Israel and save the whole humanity.

  8. Persian Says:

    Another interesting factoid is that South Ossetia has a large contingency of Iranic people that have lived there and that converted to Christianity after migrating to south Ossetia from Iran (modern-day Persia) and Azerbaijan centuries ago.

    Although not a primary source of authority, Wikipedia is a good starting point for examining the demographic makeup of South and North Ossetia:

    This never-before mentioned factoid begs the question, of the 1500 or so Ossetian civilians murdered by the invading Georgians, how many victims were of Iranic stock? How many were Moslems? Was there an attempt to ethnically cleanse the region of Iranic people?

    Additionally, was this incursion by U.S. backed Georgia a test-run for an attack on Iran, or perhaps a test-run to see what Russian response capabilities are? After all, the corridor between Russia and Iran is through Georgia.

    In the event of a U.S./Israeli attack upon the sovereignty of Iran, the largest threat to the U.S. and Israel would come from Russia and/or China. This whole invasion exercise by Georgia upon South Ossetia could have been to test Russian response time, methods, tactics, and to identify weaponry the Russians would conceivably use in any military confrontation with the U.S. and/or Israel in response to an invasion upon Iran, while at the same time neutralizing potential opposition from the Ossetia region of Georgia whose citizenry might align with their genetically-related brethren in Iran. There are approximately 700,000 South Ossetians of Iranic origin.

    There is much more to this story than is being told and the U.S. propaganda machine is working non-stop to mold the minds of the U.S. population that what Georgia did was righteous and what Russia did in response was heavy-handed.

    One can only wonder what the response would be if the California National Guard decided that California should be autonomous and tried to secede from the Union. In the process, the rebels attack a Federal military installation, kill Federal troops and civilians, and basically terrorize the civilian population.

    Let’s add that foreign entities assisted the rebellion (we’ll use current U.S. foes to compare apples to apples), let’s say Venezuelan and Cuban military advisers to help to train the California National Guard for its attack.

    I wonder what would be our benevolent government’s response to such a declaration of war. And, when the Federal troops fought back, would Russia quickly condemn the act, and through its control of the media begin to spin the story as the Bush Administration has? I doubt it.

    This Administration is out of control, out of touch with reality, and hypocritical beyond words.

  9. eileen kuch Says:

    This is a very eye-opening article; and I commend you, Dr. Tillawi, for your historical research for this story, as well as its historical content in connection with the present crisis in Georgia. The connection between “Israeli Jews” and “Georgian Jews” you point out, is the whole motivation for Georgia’s aggression against S. Ossetia – an 800-year-old revenge for the Russians’ historic defeat of the Khazars. Thank you for telling the truth; the Jewish-owned US media certainly won’t.

  10. george in Toronto Says:

    Mel Gibson is black listed cause he said-Jews started all wars.Stupid Americans do not believe him-What is worse-Israel can not do wrong,even exposed as criminals,such as USS Liberty Killings and the 911 miniture nuke attacks.

    Origin of the Word Jew
    Parts 1 through 3

    The Etymology of the Word “Jew”

    The best known 18th century editions of the New Testament in English are the Rheims (Douai) Edition and the King James Authorized Edition. The Rheims (Douai) translation of the New Testament into English was first printed in 1582 but the word “Jew” did not appear in it.

    The King James Authorized translation of the New Testament into English was begun in 1604 and first published in 1611. The word “Jew” did not appear in it either. The word “Jew” appeared in both these well known editions in their 18th century revised versions for the first times.

    Countless copies of the revised 18th century editions of the Rheims (Douai) and the King James translations of the New Testament into English were distributed to the clergy and the laity throughout the English speaking world. They did not know the history of the origin of the English word “Jew” nor did they care. They accepted the English word “Jew” as the only and as the accepted form of the Latin “Iudaeus” and the Greek “Ioudaios.” How could they be expected to have known otherwise? The answer is they could not and they did not. It was a new English word to them.

    There is not a person in the whole English-speaking world today who regards a “Jew” as a “Judean” in the literal sense of the Word. That was the correct and only meaning of the word in the 18th century . . . (Facts Are Facts, by Benjamin H. Freedman, p. 15-21).

    I received a degree in Theology in 1978, from St.Louis University. Not one word of the above was ever mentioned in any of my classes. These facts can change our understanding of the Bible!

  13. Hi Hesham! It’s a very good article with lots of facts. By the way: last time we met was in Tunis I believe.

    Anyhow, here’s some more info which is rather underreported:

    Information concerning the – according to an Israeli source – Israeli investments in Georgia.

    Quote: ”Israel Has $1 Billion Invested in Georgia

    ( The Israeli-Georgia connection is estimated to be worth $1 billion, according to a former Georgian ambassador to Israel. The Jewish state and private investors have provided military assistance and advisors to Georgia, where pipelines pump oil destined for Israel.

    A new pipeline is being built to bypass Russian territory.
    The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that Israeli companies in Georgia have begun evacuating their staff and that Israeli tourists are leaving for home.” – [end item]

    Source: ‘Arutz Sheva’ – Israel National News – TinyUrl.:

    After more than four decades abroad I’m now trying to get the country I was born in, The Netherlands, a bit cleaner, but it’s a tsunami of lies here too. The mad multi- and double nationality money (the Euro) making mafia runs the joint here too, like the rest of their European Union.

    That may change however, because for 25 up to 30% the European countries are already using Russia’s gas and oil, which they need. It’s a weapon, like food. The European people, not the Khazar and collaborating mafia, like Putin now more than the Evil Empire. – Url.:

    Anyhow: the pro war propaganda media day and night have some kind of barrage about attacking Iran too, but in the meantime Israel keeps buying Iranian oil via the ‘spot market’ for oil in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Because then it’s ‘bought in Holland’…

    Quote: “The report by EnergiaNews editor Moshe Shalev states that the Iranian oil reaches various European ports, mainly in Rotterdam. It is bought by Israelis and the necessary European bill of lading and insurance papers are supplied. Then it is transported to Haifa in Israel. The importer is the Eilat-Ashkelon Pipeline Co (EAPC), which keeps its oil sources secret.”

    There’s more about those ‘secrets’ at – Url.:

    Thought people might like to know.

    A lot of good work you do!

    Keep going!

  14. Balder Says:

    The article is good, but I don’t really understand what you are saying here:

    “Even Western Europe Jews who spoke Yiddish or a derivative off such as the Jews of France and Germany had to have came from the Khazar Jews due to the fact that there are no traces of Yiddish in any Western European language.”

    As far as I know Jiddish is essentially a German dialect containing a number of Hebrew expression and words.

    And yes there are many traces of Yiddish in Western European languages; eg. in Dutch, but they have probably appeared there later on.

  15. Richard Says:

    Just a brief extra comment on “Yiddish as a High German dialect” I have not the time to reference now but could be followed up in the literature. In the High Middle Ages High German was the commercial ‘lingua franca’ of the central European trading area from the Baltic to the Alps – Hanse etc. Yiddish has an essentially Slavic/Turkic grammar with a ‘pidgeon’ German lexis (vocabulary). It is incomprehensible to Germans. eg Yiddish ‘yarmulka’ is Turkic.

  16. luka Says:

    Well, well….
    I’m Georgian and I have just read this article and was very much surprised about what was said above.

    Georgians and Jews do really have good relationship. First of all, it is becouse that for cnturies Georgia has been a home for Jews.

    Mr. Tillawi, so you say that what happened a year ago, was that, Khazar Jews tried to pay revange to Russians becouse of that war they lost nearly 1000 years ago?

    This is very interesting becouse, so much it has been said about Georgia-Russia war, but I have never heard this version of the motives that triggered the war.

    But there are lots of Jews in Russian government (I don’t know exactly who, but it must be so) and if all the Jews are working together and if for zionism settling down the situation in middle east and creating stable Israel is the priority, why should they waste money, time and risk the future becouse of revange?

    I think it was US fault what happened! They needed to know in what condition is the Russian army, and they made a fine experiment. But what’s worse, even this may be the part of zionism plan!

    and one more question:
    If I got it correctly, “Khazar Jews” are those who we call “Georgian Jews” today?

  17. luka Says:

    And one more thing: as I know and as it truely is, that jews came to Georgia not only after Khazar war, but much more early, 2600 years ago, when King of Babylon Nebuchadnezzar conquered Judah and Jerusalem. After that Jews spread widely in Europe and by that time they come to Georgia.

    Jews run all white countries. Whether one is looking at Russia, Georgia or Hungary to the East. Or to the West- France, the UK, Italy. Australia and New Zealand are too. Go to the US (the Jewnited States of America) or my Canada and we will see the same thing.

    Its because of the white Christians man’s weakness (lack of street smarts, lack of academics smarts, guilt complex from the holohoax and the Biblical call to support ‘God’s chosen people) that Jews are allowed to run without impunity.

    You won’t see this in the Islamic world (too aware of Jews). Same with Blacks in Africa and the Caribbean. Latin America doesn’t like Jews because of their history of colonization. Asians (Chinese,Japanese and Koreans are too smart and aware of Jews).

    But the white man, he is the pathetic slave of the Jew and he doesn’t even know it. Sorry ass race!!!
