Skip to comments.Are the Taliban Descended From One of Ten Lost Tribes of Israel?

Every Friday night observant Jews bless their sons by saying, "may you be like Manasseh and Ephraim," the two sons of the biblical Joseph, who were the first Jews, born outside of the Holy Land. The blessing expresses the hope that, just like Joseph's sons, today's Jewish sons will hold fast to their religion despite the fact they live in the diaspora.
Manasseh and Ephraim are two of the famous lost ten tribes, who were carted away into exile more than 2,500 years ago. Descendants of the tribe of Manasseh have been found living in India, and many of them are moving to Israel.
As far as Ephraim, many people believe that their descendants are now fighting against the United States in Afghanistan,and are now called the Taliban.

...What a SCREaM!!! JUST LOVE THAT CONCLUSION!
L O L!!!!!
Stephen Pressfield included a meeting with these displaced and cut off Israelites in his book, The Afghan Campaign. A novel of Alexanders campaign in Bactria on his way to India, from the viewpoint of a Macedonian hoplite.Along the wy they meet a tribe that they recognize as related to Israelites who practice the Passover sader in their own way.
Going way out a limb here and say.....No.
Plain stupid nonsense!
And Al Qaeda were the descendants of Goliath’s homeboys who went against David. It must be a slow day at the J Post that they have to come up with this crap...
Everybody traveled the Silk Road and left behind more than their fair share of DNA. If the ancient Hebrew tribes taken captive by the Assyrians could be genetically identified there's no doubt you'd find some descendants in Afganistan, Iran and Pakistan.
I doubt the Taliban are restricted to a single tribe of any given nation. They're pretty much an equal opportunity terroristic bunch. BTW, they were founded for the purpose of bringing to a halt the civil war that ensued after the Russian withdrawal.
They are proof that the accursed muhammed (may he burn in hell between Farmer John hams) boffed camels and goats when he wasn’t doing children.
Would observant Jews then stop wishing their children grow up to be like Ephraim? After all, his descendants appear not to be very nice people—and are not at all Jewish save by race.
More likely descended from the devil.
Donchu fellers no nuttin?
Them Chinese are those tenth Isrel tribe! Ya see all them Chinee eat-em-ups in them Jewboy neighborhoods? Thems all sekret cooomunication centers.... I gotta tell ya!
Ya see, them Jewboys in the Forbidd’n city back in major Chinatown Beijing sends them sekret orders to all them Jews in Nu York... (carefully hidden in fortune cookies), then them Jews — carefully disguised in long black coats, beards and black beanies— send their instructions up to the CFR!!!
It’s TRUE!!! I read it on the Internet!!!
both sides would equally be seeking a divorce from the issue.
what a hoot though, if its genetically proven!
Either that or the Eskimos! (They’re left out in the cold.)
There are and have been a whack of Jewish descendants that have roots in India....
I am slightly ripped... please do not get me started on Eskimo jokes.
(But FReepmail me any good ones.)
Wouldn’t be that surprising, though the Scythian theory is a bit more interesting imho.
Gosh. I thought the Lost Tribes were American Indians. Or the British.
Almost every culture claims relation to the lost tribes in some way. Maybe the Tibetians haven’t, but that’s about it.
