whites in the Middle East
• The racial makeup of the original inhabitants of the Middle East—from Turkey to the present-day Iran, including the areas known today as Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, and Egypt—, was by the year 4000 BC predominantly original white-Mediterranean, with Alpine and Proto-Nordic subgroups scattered among them.
• In the prologue [of his famous laws, now on display at the Louvre in France] Hammurabi announces that he has come “to rule the black-haired people”.
• Although Semitic himself, the Chaldean king, Nebuchadnezzar (who became king in 604 B.C.), achieved fame for carrying off several thousand Jews into captivity in Babylon. The Chaldeans in turn were attacked by the originally Indo-European Assyrians in the north, and the city of Babylon was eventually sacked by the Assyrians around the year 700 B.C.
• The Philistines established what was by all accounts a harsh rule over the Semites, which led to the subjugated Jewish tribes developing a fanatical hatred of them.
• The leaders of Persia called themselves Aryans… The word Assyrian is a corruption of the word Aryan.
