Is it Hebrew or Yiddish? Is it Yiddish or Jewish?

Many non-Jewish people in the world today never seem to ask the question of what language the so-called Jews are really speaking. Overwhelmingly it is assumed that they are speaking the ancient language of Hebrew. This could not be further from the truth.
The Khazarian (Turkic) people that call themselves Jews actually speak Yiddish. In fact the word Yiddish means Jewish which comes from the word Yid which means Jew. So Yiddish is not to be confused with Hebrew. In fact the Khazarian a.k.a. Jewish/ Yiddish language originated in the Ashkenazi culture that developed around the 10th century.
The language emerged right out of Rhineland Germany and then spread to Central and Eastern Europe and eventually to other countries. It developed by taking different dialects such as German, Slavic, Aramaic, Romance languages and of course Hebrew. In short it is a Germanic language with Hebrew influence.
