What is uncomforable for Jews about Christian history? So, we don't believe that Christ was anything more than a mortal Jewish guy. And interesting and bright guy with lots of good ideas. That some people view his a the son of God is their prerogative and Jews, while they don't share this belief, aren't uncomfortable with it at all. As to "chosen people", remember the idea behind that is that Jews have special responsibilities. It has nothing to do with being better than anyone. Of course, most Jews don't even believe in the special responsibility thing. Sam, I do think that it does demonstrate than not all Jews could be of Khazarian heritage but we knew that anyway. What I find interesting in the story is that Hebrew appeared to be the language of these people. It suggests, but its far from certain, that these German Jews were either part of the diaspora or descendants of diaspora Jews. So, the Arab claim, is that all Europeans were strangers to Israel and today they assert that these Jews should return to Europe. There is a significant basis for believing that European Jews, at least substantial number of them, did have roots in Judea and Samaiah, well before - hundreds and even thousands of years - before Islam saw the light of day.
