Excellent story. Thanks. I'll have to do a little more research into this area. The Ottoman Turk empire (ruling class) used to breed with Whites so the royals and the aristocracy were lighter skinned. Another interesting bit of info is the Ottoman empire had a military group made up of whites who were captured in infancy and raised in seclusion and trained to be fierce warriors. Poor guys didn't know they were trained to kill their own families when sent into war against them and they were fighting on behalf of those people who murdered members of their families. I can't remember what these warriors were called.

Yeah the Turks seem central to this. I had heard that slave army story but I forgot it, something like the first born son was the property of the warlord. That was the ottomans? Man they were all about slavery. Brutal.

About the other point, I realized after how nicely that lines up with the Jewish story that they were slaves in Egypt. Because really they look useless as slaves but if all the women were slaves, it makes sense to get added to the story.

Really interesting stuff. Hope to hear more.
