/ Khazars and their crimes in the Slavic lands of Poland
I submit that there are two reasons at play here:
1) Defined religions that did not present a threat were tolerated. By definition, pagans/barbarians would not qualify as a religion. Certainly pagans/barbarians who could not be controlled would constitute a threat to an empire seeking resources and serfs. The Romans were very tolerable of religions as long as they did not present a threat. Once they were seen as a threat to Roman order, they were destroyed. Rome destroyed Israel when they were seen as a threat. Rome put down the Picts/Druids when they got in the way. In the 1500's Spain put down the indians of South American using the moral justification of spreading the gospel
. Islam fought the Christians when they were seen as a threat. The crossmen
from the West destroyed pagan/barbarians at every opportunity with the moral justification of spreading Christianity. The Brits quelled any religious sect that interfered with their control of India. The Brits sold opium to the Chinese to dope them into submission. (Remember Hitler's statement that religion was the opium of the people
.) Should we expect that the Khazars would do any less to fuel their empire? I submit that it is naive to think otherwise. BBC documentaries are concluding that should an alien race come to the Earth that the alien race would be aggressive and see Man as a threat to their designs. I submit that it is illogical to conclude that the Khazars would tolerate any pagan/barbarian sect that presented a threat to them. Yes, they would accept sects that gave up their land and accepted serfdom. Do you think for a minute that the Slavs would be more docile/less proud than the Jews of Israel? Non sequitur. I submit that the Brit encyclopedia is saying that pagan/barbarian sects were tolerated as long as they toed the line
. Once they got out of line, they were labeled terrorists
and were destroyed.
2) The winners fight for the moral high ground to justify what they do. Hitler did this. I believe that he said that Poland attached Germany and that the Germans were therefore justified in invading Poland. I'll let you decide who else has done this. The winners write the history books. Rome destroyed all records of Carthage.
Thanks for replying to me in a human manner

Weren't the Khazars converted to Judaism? If so are they considered to be in the blood line
