My Dear Maria,


YOU)  to put them in the right perspective, not regard them as ‘CREDIBLE 
SOURCES', especially not those, which clearly are nothing more than 
emotionally loaded prejudice".


" The sources I presented are far from being a legend or MYTH. All 
chronicles ARE REFERRING to the Hungarians(and implicitly FINNS) as a 
people who came from Siberia.Even if we ignore  what the chronicles tell 
us,we still have the LANGUAGE (which is a non European language and it 
has a lot in common with other Turkic or Asian languages). We also have 
the name of the TRIBE (HUN- GAR), given by the neighboring states. This 
name also indicates a relation to MONGOLS, HUNS,TATARS, TURKS. We also 
have the name MAGYAR, which also indicates the same roots.We also know 
that the HUNGARIANS used to leave in TENTS as late as 12th. 
Century(recorded).Also remember that non of the Europeans used TENTS, 
Romans (Greek & Latin), Germanics(Gots,Vikings, Lombards, etc.), Celts, 
Tracians, Slavs.
You are suggesting to" put these sources in the RIGHT perspective"?.
I know that the right perspective for a HUNGARIAN is to ignore totally 
what the Chronicles tell us. This approach was possible in Germany during 
WW2, when German archeologists found 2000 years old pottery ornamented 
with the German Swastikas.(Or Nazi swastikas how the Germans like to call 

       In the past noble titles( baron, count, duke, etc.) were sold to 
those rich people who had the money but did not have a name.Nations try 
to do the same, Germany for example  became Holy Roman Empire(Although 
they were NOT Holy, NOT Roman, and certainly NOT an Empire).Russians 
elevated MOSCOW to a higher level (THIRD ROME).Every body likes Rome.

Mexico eh? Maybe so, maybe no... Hmm.. I haven't heard about the 
folk-emboridery and the like of Meso-America and Mexico but you do have a 
point since the sacred eagle of the Aztecs does remind one of the Turul. 
As to folk-patterns, are you saying that some of the Mexican folk-art 
patterns look like tulips, flowers and heart shapes? (Sorry I only know 
those Magyar folk patterns - They're probably Sumerian-based!) I know 
that the Legend of the Stag is supposed to have a similar-sounding 
version in Mayan Mythology (check out Fred Hamori's page 
HTTP://EXO.COM/~FREDH/STAG.HTM - I think that's the site, if not, rifle 
through his mythology page HTTP://EXO.COM/~FREDH/MYTHS.HTM for the Great 
Stag story) and there are a few Magyar-Meso-American lexical similarities 
(ex. Aztec TEPEC = hill, Magyar DOMB). Well, I think blah, blah,

Dear Friends,

    When criticizing the "Mongol-Hungarian-Asian debate", I was not really 
interested in who was right and who was wrong; I did not attempt either to 
go into semantics. All I was trying to do was to 
express my discontent with the DISCOURSE used in the debate, which was I 
believe full of prejudice. But, anyway.
   For a change, I have an other question:
        What do you guys think, why is that most of these debates going 
on this list get really nasty after a while? I mean, they call each 
other liar, racist, fraud, etc. I have an idea: from now on why don't we 
try to have a nice, pleasant, intellectual  conversation; how about 
criticizing each 
other's IDEAS, instead of calling the person names.(O.K. before anybody 
tells me "I didn't do it",  and lists all his/her ever mailed mail, why 
don't we just try.)

addressed the issue in such manner, don't take the blame. Common!
Kovacs Gyorgy wrote you might have some interesting answers to what I 
wrote about. Do you think that the debate was conducted in a manner that 
did not allege prejudice? ( Not you but the debate as a whole.)
Common man, talk to me; after what you have been writing lately I 
expected a much more interesting answer from you.
   Why don't you read my other message called:

Hungarian Studies Online

                     Mission Statement

Hungarian Studies Online (HSO) is an independent digest of preprint
articles and other relevant material in English or Hungarian Language on the
internet. The main thrust of HSO is exploring the nature, the extent and qualit
of the democratic changes in East Central Europe, with the special focus on
Hungary and Hungarians.

It is our intention to provide a forum for free exchange of ideas dedicated to
democratic changes pertaining to every ethnic community in East Central
Europe, including the 3.5 million ethnic Hungarians living outside the present
day borders of Hungary. 

HSO aims to alleviate the political and financial constraints on the free flow
of ideas imposed by selective interests of the present political establishment
in Hungary and elsewhere. 

To submit an article to HSO, please send an IBM or compatible file, or a
good quality printed copy for scanning to Hungarian Studies Online, 113
Waniska Ave, Toronto, ON., Canada, M8Y 1R5. E-Mail to Peter Kaslik

Anyone interested in publishing one of the articles from tis Site in a printed
publication, should contact HCO at the above E-Mail Address.

Thanks, Peter!

This really is quite an interesting notion.

The thought occurs to me that there could be some analogy with the Falashes
(sp?) - the Black Jews of Ethiopia - who were largely evacuated to Israel
and settled in Israel just in the last few years. Do you think these people
would be interested in returning to Hungary? 

It would certainly be interesting to discover if these people are on the

Peter, I was not denying your sincerity in reporting about this couple, but
I have *never* heard anywhere any speculation that the Magyars *originated*
in Egypt, and, if you remember, that was the start of this thread. It really
didn't have anything to do with the idea that "kidnapped" Hungarians might
have retained their identity while having been resettled in Egypt for
several centuries. Therefore, I made what might be considered a reasonable
guess that the confusion - for such it is, I am sure -  might have arisen in
regard to Hungarian origins, because of the fact that Gypsies were
traditionally thought to have come from Egypt, and, of course, Gypsies have
been identified with Hungary - especially by virtue of their mastery of
Hungarian music - for a long time. That is all. I was not suggesting that
there is any closer genetic relationship than that, because until I hear a
contrary theory, I accept the current notion that Gypsies, or Roma,
originated in India (Dravidians, perhaps?) from where they wandered
gradually into Western and Eastern Europe, whereas the Magyars were more or
less Asiatic in origin, I think. (Of course as someone noted not too long
ago here, if you go back far enough, it seems we *all* originated in Africa!)

Clear as mud?

I'm sorry, but I'm a bit confused by your blatant fingerpointing at slav 
brutality. The above posting mentions Rwanda, Japan, etc. All countries 
and nations can be pointed at  for brutality of some kind. My question to 
you is this: What nationality and background do you come from? You seem 
to bleed with hatred and pain.
I am quite astounded that you fail to mention the brutality of the 
magyars themselves during WWI. Let's not forget their policy of forceful 
magyarization of all the peoples that they conquered. This included the 
Slavs, the Romanians, and the Slovaks. This magyarization included the 
forced use of the magyar language in all facets of life and education. 
The Magyars and not innocent peoples themselves,
