Was Ancient “Israel” really some place else, or, more likely, “Never Was…”

We just saw a fun video that says Moses crossed the Middle of the Red Sea and that biblical Mt. Sinai was hundreds of miles away from Palestine, meaning Judea and Samaria.

I will put this as short as possible, including the Sputnik article that went with the silly video and a longer piece from two VT regulars with actual qualifications, one an actual Egyptian archaeologist (and MD/pediatrician).

History can’t find a “State of Israel” or “Kingdom of Israel,” they can’t really find any evidence whatsoever that “Israelites” were ever in Egypt as well.

The area Israel claims today at no time was ever home to a Jewish kingdom of any kind, it was all made up.  It was either Egyptian or Babylonian or Assyrian.

Moreover, it has long been accepted that Moses is a myth as well, something that will hit a number of religions and that the Pentateuch, meaning the five books of Moses are utterly fake as well.

Carrying this further, do note that Matthew, Mark and John were never apostles, that the fake apostle Paul never met Jesus and that Christianity has a history that comes from the East, not from Judea, but Iran.

The real history of Christianity and other religions we won’t mention, is quite different than given, so much different that the centuries of wars driven by a fake Moses or a quite disturbed and equally fake Noah and Abraham….

All of it was made up.

What is worse, when we look at real archeology, which can take the roots of just the Western civilizations alone back well over 10,000 years, we find scholarship skewed to fit into biblical crap.


For a century, the universities under the hammer of the Vatican and Rothschilds, have choked off any real scholarship.  If you want 10,000 year old artifacts from Europe, the Vinca’s in Serbia or want to see “Bronze” or “Iron Age” fakery, all of of it thousands of years older than purported, you can just go on Ebay.

Tel Halaf, Syrian-Turkish border, 6000BC – Jim Dean

We can have Jim Dean put some photos up some of his 4500BC Tel Halaf idols (Syria/Turkey border), or some of his new Vinca stuff from Bulgaria and Serbia, 6-7000 years old. And if you have time maybe he can dig out his stone tools, one of them an Oldowan, going back a million years.

I studied archaeology and spent some years , on the ground, in Africa, the Middle East/South Asia and Europe, noting how history had been fictionalized.

The “Celtic” civilizations that can be traced along Europe’s Western exterior, from the Irish shore to Brittany, Spain, Portugal, Malta, and down into Africa, is many thousands of years older than given, making Robert E. Howard, of Conan the Barbarian fame, a better historian than one might have guessed.

A simple run across the now Kurdish held regions of Syria, Turkey, Iraq and Iran yield evidence of hundreds of settlements thousands of years before “pre-history” while digs in Turkey, rapidly being purposefully misconstrued carbon date to up to 15,000 BC.

Western Sahara, stone tool blades just lying on the ground, 10K to 120K BC, far as the eye can see – Jim Dean

The sad and insane part of it is the attempt to fake a Middle Eastern “homeland” for the millions of Eastern Europeans that are hereditary members of the Jewish faith.

The entire history of the region, when Christianity entered Russia and the Baltic, how those groups interacted with Mongol and other “invaders,” and how Europe as we know it, particularly the languages of Hungary and Finland as evidence, is fake.

So, what we have done is, in order to fit into the mold of the Vatican and the “no-Semitic blood whatsoever” European Jews, who of course look just like the rest of us because that is exactly what they are, we have erased history, quashed scholarship, destroyed any chance of properly investigating our own civilizations and heritage, all to fit into a post-war scenario that requires some questioning as well.

Controlling the media, mass censorship of now two centuries of research, an endless series of fake wars and then religion…

“My first Vinca fertility idol, 16cm, 4500 BC” – Jim Dean

Sputnik/Moscow: The biblical Mount Sinai is traditionally placed in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, but some researchers say it could be located over a hundred miles eastwards on the Arabian Peninsula across the Gulf of Aqaba.

Ryan Mauro, the national security analyst at the non-profit anti-extremist Clarion Project, and the Doubting Thomas Research Foundation have released the results of a two-year joint search for the holy site in a documentary titled “Finding the Mountain of Moses: The Real Mount Sinai in Saudi Arabia”.

According to the new investigation, the actual place where Moses received the Ten Commandments is in Saudi Arabia, and the Kingdom is well aware of this fact.

The documentary claims, based on several Christian, Jewish, and Islamic sources, that the biblical Mount Sinai is actually located in northwest Saudi Arabia. Ryan Mauro alleges that the Saudi government has been trying to conceal its location from the rest of the world using “fences, police, and a threat of force”.

He has interviewed locals and reached out to a person connected with jihadists to back up his claims.

“When I was in the jihad world, we all knew the Mount Sinai was in Saudi Arabia,” said an unidentified man, who hid his face and used a voice-changing filter. “The people on the outside, even most Muslims, had no idea that it was there. Because we, fighters, didn’t want anyone to know about it.”

“We all knew that the Saudi government hid it and protected it with security, and we all agreed with it. We believe that if a site — even a holy site — is visited by people and used for idolatry, it should be destroyed. But our hiding it, according to the Islamic law, is what saved it so you can see it today and appreciate it.”

Mauro claims key evidence is in jeopardy due to a $500 billion futuristic mega-city project, which is to be built in the coming years. “The Saudis are construction a super city that is planned to be 33 times the size of New York. If all of us don’t take action, Saudi construction in the area may destroy key evidence and prevent excavation for the foreseeable future.”

He has launched a website to try and convince Saudi Arabia to preserve the site.

 

The analyst believes that Jabal Maqla, one of the tallest mountains in the Arabian Peninsula and a peak on the mountain range of Jabal al-Lawz, is the actual place where Moses received the Ten Commandments.

He invokes Moses’ account from the book of Exodus and cites the blackened top of the mountain, which could have been burnt by the Lord descended on Mount Sinai in fire, as per the Book of Exodus. However, he admits, these could simply be natural volcanic rocks.

He also alleges to have found Elam, the oasis where Moses and the Israelites found water after crossing the Red Sea en route to Mount Sinai, and what could have been several other pieces of evidence, like a rock split by Moses or the remains of an ancient altar where the Israelites worshipped a golden calf while Moses was on top of the mountain.

“Think of how many things line up with the biblical story right here at this mountain,” Mauro concludes, defying a popular theory that the biblical Mount Sinai is located in the Sinai Peninsula.

Egypt Knew No Pharaohs Nor Israelites?

“Bad history makes sweeping generalizations for which there is not adequate evidence and ignores awkward facts that do not fit.”[1]

christopherHistorian Christopher Behan McCullagh argues in his seminal study Justifying Historical Descriptions that there are at least seven tests historians use to determine the best explanation through which to view historical facts and inferences. Here are his arguments:

“The theory is that one is rationally justified in believing a statement to be true if the following conditions obtain:

“1) The statement, together with other statements already held to be true, must imply yet other statements describing present, observable data. (We will henceforth call the first statement ‘the hypothesis,’ and statements describing observable data, observation statements.’)

“2)The hypothesis must be of greater explanatory scope than any other incompatible hypothesis about the same subject; that is, it must imply a greater variety of observation statements.

“3)The hypothesis must be of greater explanatory power than any other incompatible hypothesis about the same subject; that is, it must make the observation statements it implies more probable than any other.

“4) They hypothesis must be more plausible than any other incompatible hypothesis about the same subject; that is, it must be implied to some degree by a greater variety of accepted truths than any other, and be implied more strongly than any other; and its probable negation must be implied by fewer beliefs, and implied less strongly than any other.

“5) The hypothesis must be less ad hoc than any other incompatible hypothesis about the same subject; that is, it must include fewer new suppositions about the past which are not already implied to some extent by existing beliefs.

“6) It must be disconfirmed by fewer accepted beliefs than any other incompatible hypothesis about the same subject; that is, when conjoined with accepted truths it must imply fewer observation statements and other statements which are believed to be false.

“7) It must exceed other incompatible hypotheses about the same subject by so much, in characteristics 2 to 6, that there is little chance of an incompatible hypothesis, after further investigation, soon exceeding it in these respects.”[2]

Peter Lipton of Cambridge constructs similar arguments in his work Inference to the Best Explanation. He argues that

“We infer what would, if true, be the best explanation of our evidence. On this view, explanatory considerations are our guide to inference.”[3]

Over the past ten years or so, I have tried to stay away from unscholarly books—most specifically books that do not abide by historical principles, rigorous testing, explanatory scope, intellectual honesty, and inference to the best explanation.

In fact, people continue to send me books to review, and on a number of occasions I have declined for the very fact that many of those books or essays do not following logical principles and do not take the search for truth seriously.

When I first started reading Ashraf Ezzat’s Egypt Knew No Pharaohs Nor Israelites, I was very interested in seeing the evidence, footnotes, citations, historical documentations, logical and rigorous inferences, and bibliography precisely because the title of the book itself is a claim of knowledge and requires extraordinary evidence. Moreover, the title itself places a huge burden of proof on Ezzat.

I was really eager to examine the full force of Ezzat’s argument and logic. Frankly, I was really disappointed. Let us just cut to the chase and start with some examples.


Ezzat has a chapter entitled “Ancient Egypt Knew No Slavery.” Hopefully the name of that particular chapter will be edited in the second edition of the book, for the statement itself is historically indefensible.[4] We have a plethora of historical evidence indicating that ancient Egypt, like all ancient civilizations, did know slavery.[5] One historian in particular writes,

“A papyrus dating to the late Middle Kingdom…indicates that individuals permanently assigned to government work as punishment could be transferred to private hands through unknown means, and, in the status essentially of ‘slave,’ be inherited and sold like any property as indicated by texts such as ‘I have acquired three slaves…in addition to those that my father granted me.’

“Slaves could be drawn from debtors (including those who sold themselves into slavery to satisfy debts), but most commonly from criminals and, in the New Kingdoms, prisoners of war. Children of slaves were born into servitude, but they could be freed.

“A text regarding inheritance from Deir el Medina indicates that a male slave was considered to be worth twice the value of a female. Slaves were generally associated with the land that they worked. Yet, there is evidence that the unfree could be compensated for their labor.”[6]

Other historians write,

“Slavery was recognized by law in the Late Period and is well illustrated by surviving contracts of sale. Legally the slave owned nothing at all. He was a living chattel who could be bought and sold at will.

“Many slaves would have been foreigners who owned their position to such factors as war, foreign trade, or both, but it was undoubtedly possible for Egyptians themselves to sink to this level—indeed, at Elephantine during the Persian period we find Egyptians even functioning as slaves of Jewish mercenaries.”[7]

As previously suggested, no civilization in the ancient world lacked slavery,[8] and that includes ancient Greece and Rome.[9] Yet Ezzat, without an iota of serious scholarly sources, irresponsibly declares,

“And if we make a quick research about slavery in the ancient Near East we will discover that slavery, where bound humans were regarded as economic property/merchandise liable to transaction, ownership and inheritance, was a common culture in Assyria, Babylon and Syria but most notably all-pervasive in the Arab peninsula.

“As for ancient Egypt, this will surely come as an amazing surprise; slavery was not at all a common tradition. Throughout most of its time span as a united kingdom, slavery was not practiced in ancient Egypt as a legitimate trade. I mean this culture of trading bound humans as profitable goods on public markets was definitely not an Egyptian accepted culture.

“I’m not going to refer to prisoners of war and their slave-like status in captivity in ancient Egypt for our Joseph was certainly not one. Neither will I be talking much about those misinterpreted religious text found carved on Egyptian temple walls in which the priests define themselves as slaves of the supreme god.”

Ezzat provides one link for all these assertions—hardly a serious scholarly source for extraordinary claims such as this.  I will not attempt to respond to this particular link at all. But it was at that point in the book that I realize that Egypt Knew No Pharaohs Nor Israelites was not going to be scholarly and rigorous book as I hope it would be.

What is even more astonishing is that Ezzat asserts that it was slavery, brought on by foreigners, which largely destroyed Egyptian civilization! “Interestingly,” he says, “in a strange way this new culture of slavery heralded the fall of the Egyptian empire.”

The evidence? It was nowhere to be found. You’ve got to take Ezzat’s words.

These are not isolated cases. The book, which purports to be historical, is littered with statements like that. I was quite uncomfortable reading the book largely because of this particular issue.

A book which purports to be historical and which seeks to deconstruct previously known accounts must at least provide enough historical evidence or rigorous methods which can be verified and studied by any serious researcher and expert.

In fact, numerous historians and scholars of various stripes have already addressed many of the issues raised in Egypt Knew No Pharaohs Nor Israelites. The works of those scholars are simply an embarrassment of riches.[10]


There are also too many bold assertions in the book with little evidence or no historical backup. For example, we read that “neither Abraham nor Joseph ever set foot in Egypt or even dreamed about it.” The statement itself is a claim of knowledge, and the historical evidence for this assertion was again weighed and found wanting.

To build his case, Ezzat brings in Herodotus. He rightly admits that Herodotus’ account “is tinged with a brush of exaggerations and misconceptions,” but since Herodotus never discusses Israel in Egypt, therefore his account “is extremely helpful and gives us a documented and rare insight into the land of the Pyramids at the remote point in time.”

In other words, anything that seems to support Ezzat’s thesis will be brought to the fore, though some of those things are without serious analysis.

The fact is that scholars of various stripes have examined Herodotus’ accounts and have come to the conclusion that he was in some instances ignorant of the history of Egypt and had to rely on hearsay.[11] Ezzat admits, “according to the purpose of our research this hearsay documentation is what we really want.”

Sure. Ezzat wants hearsay—and he got it.


We are also told that “Egypt never witnessed any of the stories of the Jewish patriarchs and that the land of the Nile valley knew neither Pharaohs nor any Israelites. Egypt was never the land of the Israelites Exodus nor is Palestine their Promised Land.” According to Ezzat, “if Egypt knew no Pharaohs then it goes without saying that Egypt never knew Moses either.” That again is a claim of knowledge, for which no serious historical evidence was presented.

Moreover, this argument suffers very badly. As French Egyptologist Nicolas Grimal argued, if the Hebrews were actually in Egypt, the lack of evidence for this event should not be “surprising, given that the Egyptians had no reason to attach any importance to the Hebrews.”[12]


What particularly shocks me as I sift through many of the bold assertions in the book is that Ezzat on several occasions dismisses the work of archeologists and experts with one or two sentences with little or no historical research. Sometimes he does not even address the so-called flaws in the work that those people produce. It was really stunning to observe how he quickly dismisses the work of archeologist William F. Albright. Here is how Ezzat dismisses him,

“The Biblical school of archeology headed by the American William F. Albright began misinterpreting many of the places in Palestine and thereby confusing them with Biblical ones. The result was a series of concocted discoveries that instead of verifying the historicity of the Bible added all the more ambiguity.

“By the mid of the 20th century the Albright school of Biblical archeology was condemned as biased and unreliable by a modern trend of scientific and objective Archeology.”

That is all. No interaction with Albright’s work, which is quite massive,[13] no serious argument, and no serious documentation. Ezzat’s conclusion is already built into his presupposition and therefore there is no way that Albright’s massive study is plausible.

In philosophy, this is called question-begging or circular argument. In fact, if you click Albright’s name in Ezzat’s book, you are confronted with one of the most scholarly sources on the face of the planet: Wikipedia! Ezzat makes the same cardinal mistake in his recent article.

This is certainly embarrassing for a book that purports to be historical—and it is even more hysterical when people who obviously know very little of ancient history begin to quote Egypt Knew No Pharaohs Nor Israelites as truth. Those people seem to have been looking for something—anything—that will support their preconceived notion, and the book seems to have been a sigh of relief for them.

Let us be clear here: we are not denying that Wikipedia can be used as a source of information, but from a scholarly perspective, it was Ezzat’s job to interact with the actual work that Albright has produced before he dismisses him. He decided to take the easy route because this quick move presumably will help his case. That certainly should give one the impression that the book should not be taken seriously.

What is quite obvious throughout the book is that scholars who do not support Ezzat’s thesis will be dismissed or ignored without sober thought. But scholars who support his enterprise will be mentioned over and over. But the interesting point is that Ezzat quotes Egyptologist Donald B. Redford approvingly throughout his book, but he could never tell his readers that Redford also believes that ancient Egypt had slaves,[14] a point which Ezzat denies.


This is not the first time that Ezzat has tried to dismiss other people’s work with a few sentences and without historical or rational rigor. In a private correspondence, one individual particularly asked Ezzat what he thought about Colin Humphreys’ The Miracles of Exodus: A Scientist’s Discovery of the Extraordinary Natural Causes of the Biblical Stories. Ezzat responded:

“I’ve read the book The Miracles of Exodus by Colin Humphreys. The man is trying his best to scientifically corroborate the Ten Plagues and the Exodus. Humphreys set out his scientific expedition from Mount Sinai and the Red Sea.

“In his 300-page book he makes good use of all his scholarly skills and tricks, only he overlooked the fact that the Hebrew Bible never mentioned the Red sea or Mount Sinai in the first place (hilarious).

“Our poor Humphreys has been duped (like millions around the world) by the distorted Greek translation of the Hebrew book. Humphreys, like James Cameron in his funny documentary ‘The Exodus Decoded’, is building his mesmerizing thesis on a false premise. Falsification is what Humphreys, Cameron, and hordes of Biblically deluded figures are actually embracing and chivalrously defending.”

Is this how the scholarly world works? Can anyone disprove any scholarly study by saying that a scholar has been “duped” without seriously pointing out the central flaws of the author?

Furthermore, isn’t there an implicit circular argument here as well? I mean, is it not possible to disprove Ezzat’s book by saying that he has been misled without providing serious argument? How could he not see that his argument here is intellectually vacuous?


There are also emotional assertions in the book which seem to suggest that the author is grasping at straws. Consider this:

“There is something mysterious about Ancient Egypt. Something doesn’t seem right; how could the land that witnessed the first dawn of human conscience and righteousness be hit with God’s wrath as said in the Bible? This simply defies common sense to begin with.”

Let us grant that argument for a moment. Isn’t it possible that this principle could also be applied to the Hebrews as well? Didn’t thousands upon thousands of them get “hit with God’s wrath” when they stayed away from the moral law and invented their own codes in the desert and elsewhere? Didn’t the book of Numbers (Numbers 25) say that more than twenty-thousand Hebrews died in just a few days because they got involved with sexual debauchery? Didn’t they go to Babylon numerous times because of their perpetual rebellion?

Through the “Biblical narrative,” Ezzat tells us, “we see nothing in Egypt except absolute tyranny and enslavement of god’s chosen people.” He continues to say that “According to the Bible, ancient Egypt is the land of idolatry, tyranny and slavery.” Is that all we see in the “Biblical narrative”?

If that were the case, why did the writers of this “Biblical narrative” even reveal that Joseph and his brothers went to Egypt in order to have a better livelihood? Why did they account that Joseph and his brothers had a friendly relationship with the Egyptians for years? Why did Joseph have to marry an Egyptian?

Why did the genealogy of Christ include foreigners such as Canaanite and Moabite and Hittite women? In other words, why did the Old Testament have to praise people like Rahab, Ruth, Tamar, Bathsheba, among others? Why did King Solomon have to marry Pharaoh’s daughter? Why was Job, who was not even a Hebrew, part of the canon?

Furthermore, no one was exempt from God’s punishment or chastisement. If Ezzat’s argument is to be taken seriously here, why didn’t he tell his readers that there was tyranny among the Hebrews as well? In fact, the Israelites went to captivity for their constant rebellion and tyranny against their fellow men and for worshiping idols. Listen to this:

“Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the Lord, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward” (Isaiah 1:4).

Hosea also declares,

“Rejoice not, O Israel, for joy, as other people: for thou hast gone a whoring from thy God…Ye have plowed wickedness, ye have reaped iniquity; ye have eaten the fruit of lies…O Israel, return unto the Lord thy God; for thou hast fallen by thine iniquity” (Hosea 9:1, 10:13, 14:1).

The book of Micah declares that “the house of Jacob, and the princes of the house of Israel” not only “abhor judgment, and pervert all equity,” but “build up Zion with blood, and Jerusalem with iniquity” (Micah 3:9-10). For their wickedness, they were all punished again and again.

“And the Lord God of their fathers sent to them by his messengers, rising up betimes, and sending; because he had compassion on his people, and on his dwelling place: But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the Lord arose against his people, till there was no remedy.

“Therefore he brought upon them the king of the Chaldees, who slew their young men with the sword in the house of their sanctuary, and had no compassion upon young man or maiden, old man, or him that stooped for age: he gave them all into his hand.

“And all the vessels of the house of God, great and small, and the treasures of the house of the Lord, and the treasures of the king, and of his princes; all [these] he brought to Babylon.

“And they burnt the house of God, and brake down the wall of Jerusalem, and burnt all the palaces thereof with fire, and destroyed all the goodly vessels thereof.

“And them that had escaped from the sword carried he away to Babylon; where they were servants to him and his sons until the reign of the kingdom of Persia” (2 Chronicles 36:15-20).

Ezzat does not even attempt to address or raise these issues because he probably didn’t think about them before he wrote the book. They obviously weaken his arguments.


“In the Biblical story of Egypt,” Ezzat tells us, “we are faced with a narrative that is not only remote from Egyptologists but absolutely contrary to the moral Egypt and its Maat’s code of conduct the scholars of history and archeology have long discovered.”

Would all Egyptologists make that claim, or is Ezzat making a proposition which he hopes will support his thesis?

Second, having a moral code does not necessitate the idea that kings and nations are going to live according to the moral code. The United States for example has The Constitution and other legal documents, but the government hardly follows what is written in those documents.


Ezzat builds a false dichotomy in the book which certainly deserves some attention:

“Either the Egyptologists’ narrative is mistaken or the Biblical one is falsified. There is not a third option. At least if we want to be logical about it. Some argued that a third option actually exists.

“The way they see it, ancient Egypt was a great civilization throughout most of its time span, except for the period during which this infamous Pharaoh rose to power. But if that argument holds any water, how come everybody, including Egyptologists, is referring to all the kings of Egypt as Pharaohs?

“If that argument is valid, the whole of ancient Egypt would have converted to Judaism instantly after the God of the Israelites had revealed his might by destroying the land and its king (so-called Pharaoh).”

Once again, by “Egyptologists,” Ezzat means people who agree with his thesis. He knows for example a large body of scholars who do not support his premises. In fact, “Prior to the nineteenth century only a few scholars questioned the historicity of the patriarchal narratives of Genesis and stories of the sojourn-exodus and Joshua’s conquest of the land of Canaan.”[15]

Will Durant noted,

“The story of the ‘bondage’ in Egypt, of the use of the Jews as slaves in great construction enterprises, their rebellion and escape—or emigration—to Asia, has many internal signs of essential truth, mingled, of course, with supernatural interpolations customary in all the historical writing of the ancient East.”[16]

More importantly, is the statement that Egypt would have converted to Judaism if the Exodus story was true a sound argument? Is Ezzat familiar with the New Testament, where it is stated throughout that the Jewish people saw Christ’s evidence as the Messiah but rejected him anyway? Is he familiar with the widespread persecutions of Christians throughout the first century by the Pharisees, who ended up exerting a powerful influence on Rome?

If Ezzat’s argument is genuine, then the Jewish people should have accepted Christ as the Messiah by now. But that is not the case. In fact, they as a subversive group began to persecute Christians from the first century and all the way to our modern time, though things got complicated over the centuries. In A.D. 70, the Jewish Temple was destroyed and Josephus himself described the event as the judgment of God upon the Jews. Did they convert as a group?

No. Instead, they began to cook up evidence, forge lies and fabrications, accused Christians on trumped-up charges, assassinate Christians and perceived enemies, put curses and maledictions on Christians,[17] and allied with emperors in order to terrorize Christian communities.[18] Even Josephus agreed that Nero was trying to please the Jewish community and “showed favour to his [Jewish] wife Poppaea” when he started to liquidate Christians.

Historian Herbert B. Workman added:

“The Jews, working probably through Poppaea, the famous mistress and wife of Nero, whose superstitious nature led her to dally with Judaism, or through Alitururs, a favourite Jewish mime, took the opportunity of the great fire and the need for a scapegoat to save themselves and at the same time to wreak vengeance on the Christians.”[19]

“Poppaea’s influence was at the full when on June 9, 62, she obtained an order for the slaughter of Octavia, Nero’s [first] wife.”[20]

Nero’s persecution, says Workman, “stamped itself for ever upon the memory of the Church by reason of its fiendish cruelties as well as its distinguished victims.”[21]

Because they caused so much trouble throughout the empire, the Romans began to despise the Jews.

“Suetonius shows that the Jews were expelled from Rome under Claudius around A.D. 50 for causing riots in confrontations with Christians. The Jews were disliked by the Romans and frequently stirred up trouble in Rome causing them to be expelled from Rome on other occasions.”[22]

So, Ezzat is wrong again when he argues that “Egypt would have converted to Judaism instantly after the God of the Israelites had revealed his might by destroying the land and its king (so-called Pharaoh).” He is operating under the assumption that people will change their views once they see the evidence, but this hypothesis is not entirely true.

On the contrary, we have good evidence which suggests that evidence alone does not necessarily lead people to change their minds. Sometimes ideology is more powerful than evidence.

If anyone would like to challenge that claim, perhaps he should be familiar with the work of people like Aldous Huxley, Richard Lewontin, Victor J. Stenger, and even Paul Davies. Lewontin, a Harvard geneticist, put the issue quite bluntly when he stated in the New York Times Book Reviews more than a decade ago:

“We take the side of science [Darwinian evolution] in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs, in spite of its failure to fulfill many of its extravagant promises of health and life, in spite of the tolerance of the scientific community for unsubstantiated just-so stories, because we have a prior commitment, a commitment to materialism.

“It is not that the methods and institutions of science somehow compel us to accept a material explanation of the phenomenal world, but, on the contrary, that we are forced by our a priori adherence to material causes to create an apparatus of investigation and a set of concepts that produce material explanations, no matter how counterintuitive, no matter how mystifying to the uninitiated. Moreover, that materialism is an absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door.”[23]

In a similar tone, Huxley declared,

“For myself, as for no doubt most of my contemporaries, the essence of meaninglessness was essentially an instrument of liberation…We objected to morality because it interferes with our sexual freedom.”[24]

What kind of evidence will convince people like these? Is there enough information in this world that will help them change their ideological weltanschauung?

The answer is no.


What we are seeing here is that both Ezzat and the genetic theorists seem to misrepresent the stories of the Old Testament. They do not seem to understand that that Zionism and other subversive movements which the Dreadful Few had forged over the centuries cannot be exegetically drawn from the Old Testament but from the Talmud.

On the contrary, the Old Testament is filled with “unpleasant” things to say about rebellious Israel. The children of Israel, we are told over and over, have “a rebellious heart” (Jeremiah 5:23) and are “wise to do evil” (4:22). The children of Israel “committed adultery, and assembled themselves by troops in the harlots’ houses. They were as fed horses in the morning: every one neighed after his neighbour’s wife” (5:7-8). And then this:

“Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that this place shall no more be called Tophet, nor The valley of the son of Hinnom, but The valley of slaughter. And I will make void the counsel of Judah and Jerusalem in this place; and I will cause them to fall by the sword before their enemies, and by the hands of them that seek their lives: and their carcasses will I give to be meat for the fowls of the heaven, and for the beasts of the earth. And I will make this city desolate, and an hissing; every one that passeth thereby shall be astonished and hiss because of all the plagues thereof.

And I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons and the flesh of their daughters, and they shall eat every one the flesh of his friend in the siege and straitness, wherewith their enemies, and they that seek their lives, shall straiten them. And shalt say unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Even so will I break this people and this city, as one breaketh a potter’s vessel, that cannot be made whole again: and they shall bury them in Tophet, till there be no place to bury. Thus will I do unto this place, saith the LORD, and to the inhabitants thereof…” (19:6-9, 11-12).


Like Ezzat—who asserts in several parts of his book that if one happens to take the Exodus story as genuine then he or she is part of the “historically uneducated masses” or the “hordes of gullible and uneducated masses”—the Pharisees and later the rabbis deliberately failed to see that the stories in the Old Testament were universal in scope; that is, the stories discuss unimaginable death, human suffering, injustice, anger, immorality, and ultimately spiritual redemption, which to us got their fulfillment at the foot of the cross.

The Pharisees thought that the Old Testament was about them and their “greatness,” and when they came to Jesus, they hubristically declared that “We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to anyone…”

The Pharisees and rabbis, through the Talmud, ended up distorting the Old Testament and ended up keeping the Jewish people morally and spiritually captive. It is no surprise that they falsely claim that the Old Testament justifies their immoral activity in the Middle East. They are spiritually and intellectually blind, so they used the Old Testament to support their Talmudic carnage and perversion.

This is one reason why the book of Revelation in the first century denounces them as the synagogue of Satan—people who say they are Jews but in reality are liars. And since they also trapped evangelical Christians into the same Talmudic culture, evangelical Christians, since 1948, have defended the genocidal activity of the Israeli regime.

Take for example Looney Tunes such as John Hagee. In order to make the Zionist case, Hagee had to deny that Christ never came to be the Messiah:

Shame on these people.


I have recently listen to the moving testimony of a rabbi’s son who actually became a Christian. He said,

“I had a big hatred for Arabs. I used my position in the army when I was stationed in Lebanon to exorcise that hatred.”

But after he became a Christian, everything changed. “I learned how to love all people and my brothers, the Arabs,” he said.

He had huge perks but lost them all shortly after his radical shift. His grandfather and all his family instantly deserted him. Before his grandfather passed away, he offered him about a million dollars if he decided to come back.

“Soon after, my grandfather’s lawyer contacted me and invited me to his office. Because I was the oldest son of my immediate family, my grandfather left me the part of the inheritance that would have gone to my father who had died some years before. 

“I walked into the office, which was also in our Orthodox town of Bnei-Brak, and he said, ‘Your grandfather left you four million shekels (which was then about one million dollars) and he left you land and a part of the house on condition that you sign right here that you don’t believe in Yeshua.

“I said, ‘I won’t do it.’ The lawyer looked at me and said, ‘Nobody’s here, just sign the paper, take the four million and do what you want.’

“I turned to the lawyer and said, ‘God is here.’

“He said, ‘If you don’t sign this paper, that money will be transferred to your family.’ I answered, ‘If that’s God’s will, so be it, but tell them Yeshua gave them the money!’ And I left.

“But the money that I gave up was not half as painful as having lost my grandfather. My own father had passed away when I was 16. I am praying for the salvation of Israel, and very specifically for the rest of my family.”

What would people like Hagee say to a person like that? Here is a son of a rabbi praying for the salvation of Israel, and here is John Hagee praying for the destruction of the Goyim, namely, Iran!

More importantly, what would the people who say that Jewish behavior is genetic say to such a man? One part of me would love to ask him, “So, tell me my brother. I’ve read that you folks have bad genes which make you all behave in a certain way. How did you get rid of them? I would very much like to know.” But the other part of me is saying that I should never insult a human being with such a dumb and morally repugnant statement.


Ezzat and the people he cites approvingly in his book do not seem to understand that the fundamental issue is theological (or Talmudic). The reason the Zionist regime is slaughtering the Palestinians is because they have learned this method from the Talmud, which is a perversion of the Old Testament.

Ezzat is right on target when he criticizes Zionism. But the major premises in his book cannot be taken seriously because they are full of holes.

  1. We all need to read:
    ” The Portable Atheist: Essential Readings For The Non Believer” by Christopher Hitchens
    and discuss it.
    “Knowledge is essential to a strong Democracy”
    Thomas Jefferson

  2. Can we just tend to understand what the verses is teaching & advising us rather than where it happened or what year it happened. In the end, it all happened in our planet earth.
    If something is provided to human by the creator, it should be analyzed using pure reasoning and logic to understand the intended content. Some may, and some may not choose not to follow. Distorting facts without evidence is dishonest for christians, jews and muslims. Talmud was generated by human and cant be trusted. All hadith books of traditional muslims were generated by human over 230 years after Mohammad and cant be trusted. The number of bibles are so high that are obviously distorted by human. No need to get into traditional Judaism that Jesus was sent to correct them as they were so unsound and unrealistic.

  3. C’mon John, he wasn’t a fraud. He was a talented Sci-fi writer who once said, “The quickest way to make a million dollars is to invent a religion.” He was noted to have said this to a friend while boarding a plane. He wrote Dianetics in less than 60 days.

    • Not really. His efforts at Science fiction failed miserably. He sure as hell was no Asimov, Heinlein or Clarke.
      Diantetics was another fraud that millions bought into. Well, maybe not millions but enough to keep him going. Besides Diantetics was nothing more than cocktail talk.

  4. Religion does not (neccessarily) deny evolutionism, while evolutionism denies religion. The principle is no more vivid than in modern Israel, where Zionism tries to interfere with postures of Judaic religion to try to evolutionize it into something that it is not, a war-gathering supermen IDF state of Jews, while Judaism strongly adheres to peaceful principles, thus reaching much further into world than IDF. IDF cannot spoil every aspect of Judaism, although it very much tries, just as US army tries with Christianity. Very much happening as well with (Western) Christianity, religion becomes perceived as something for the weak and stupid, uninformed, uneducated and poor at best; laws and freedoms are written modified for Christian ethics, while in essence empty. Christianity still reaches far more than NATO militarism, while NATO pretend to go along with Christian and Judaic principles, again trying to ubermensch religion. We forget that Christianity with all its flaws and deep division fights helped develop quite a few modern characteristics of our world. Yet, in all its miserability, the religion(s) has unique viewpoint on the world.

    • Precisely, and Phoenicia had boats and written languages. And always we search for the smaller correlates, like the sacredness of cedar to North America , and calendrical knowledge. But, this takes us to a whole new level of the conversation which this environment is not conducive to.

  5. Lol. The level of BS in this piece is quite excessive. Go study the life and character of Imam Ali (as) and if you are lucky, you will begin to be guided in the right direction. Yes, the City of Knowledge is the prophet (pbuh) but you can only enter the city through it’s gate, Imam Ali.

    • @David Odell, no clue what you’re talking about. Pls clarify. Brahma as the creator according to Hinduism? And where did “God say, your name shall no longer be Brahma but Abraham”?? So God said to God that he will henceforth be a prophet and no longer God??

    • He said what? All this talk about my God, your God is more like a d*** waving contest. My God’s d*** is bigger than your God’s d***.
      What!? Bomb ’em.!
      And this is where all the trouble in the world starts.

  6. Ryan Mauro may have a point, but not the one he wants to make. Since the available evidence leads us to conclude that most of the Torah was borrowed (to put it nicely) or plagiarized (to put it not so nicely) by its authors, events similar to those Mauro described (other than magical parting of the sea that could have simply been the difference between high and low tides when the sea level was lower, and YHWH speaking to Moses – ingestion of natural hallucinogens?) may actually have happened at those locations, with the legends/folklore transferred to Egypt and the Levant.

    Was HWV 54 chosen as Mr. Handel (as he was naturalized without the umlaut in 1727) was a heretical Christian who refusal to consider the Torah/Old Testament canonical due to its portraying a vindictive, arbitrary, and violent God?

  7. http://www.culturewars.com/2018/Gardinerreview.htm A different look at the roots of Islam. It is pretty much common knowledge that the tribes that originally controlled Medina were of Jewish roots and also that these Jewish tribes sometimes fought among themselves. Search engine jewish roots of islam Also similar to the Red Symphony there was another incident when an Illuminus operative was captured and to show his connections he started listing off people throughout history that the Darkpath claimed as their own and Abu Bakr was on his list… right now I can not locate the source of this.

    • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_non-Arab_Sahabah
      Abdullah ibn Salam – Was a rabbi before his conversion to Islam. He was the first Muslim that was explicitly promised Jannah (paradise) by Muhammad, while he was still alive. He is credited as the man who participated in most battles during the Prophet’s time. He was an expert in reading Hebrew bible, his mother tongue, and he was assigned by the Prophet to document Quran.

    • http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/10545-medina This is not to say the Jewish influence did not have unintended consequences. Point to remember those who say they are jews and are not…. the Darkpath owes no true allegiance to any “religion” infiltrates and uses all religions, atheism also…only to a hidden hand in the course of history that supports an evil conquest of the entire world.

    • Your tirade of ignorance is obvious.

      Once again, for the novice such as you. Islam started in Mecca. No jews, no Jewish influence. Just Arabs. Muhammad never went to Medina prior to going to Medina, neither did he meet Jews from Madina. ->
      “http://www.culturewars.com/2018/Gardinerreview.htm A different look at the roots of Islam.

Search engine jewish roots of islam”.

      Illuminati Jews copied and corrupted the knowledge from Muhammad’s companions, forming their illuminati group of Jews. Abu Bakr and Ali, were the knowledge of the Sufis. That is why Abu Bakr is listed since he is of the Sufis, and they stole from his knowledge, corrupting it. Were it not for Islam in Spain the Jews would not understand the sciences, nor would the Christian or secular west. ->
      – > “Also similar to the Red Symphony there was another incident when an Illuminus operative was captured and to show his connections he started listing off people throughout history that the Darkpath claimed as their own and Abu Bakr was on his list… right now I can not locate the source of this.”

      Your Wikipedia corroboration is false – > “https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_non-Arab_Sahabah
      Abdullah ibn Salam – Was a rabbi before his conversion to Islam. He was the first Muslim that was explicitly promised Jannah (paradise) by Muhammad, while he was still alive. He is credited as the man who participated in most battles during the Prophet’s time. He was an expert in reading Hebrew bible, his mother tongue, and he was assigned by the Prophet to document Quran.”

      The first promised explicitly mentioned to go to Paradise are – > Narrated Abdur Rahman bin Awf:
      that the Messenger of Allah said: “Abu Bakr is in Paradise, ‘Umar is in Paradise, ‘Uthman is in Paradise, ‘Ali is in Paradise, Talhah is in Paradise, Az-Zubayr is in Paradise, ‘Abdur Rahman bin Awf is in Paradise, Sa’d bin Abi Waqqas is in Paradise, Sa’id ibn Zayd is in Paradise, and Abu ‘Ubaidah bin Al-Jarrah is in Paradise.”

      Muhammad pointed to Abdullah ibn Salam but did not name him.

      By this logic, Christianity and its Bible were the perfect Illuminati mind control trap. Being reviewed and rewritten every few years – > “http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/10545-medina This is not to say the Jewish influence did not have unintended consequences.

  8. Enjoyed the article & audacious sacredotal topic. Any objective researcher can look at Gobekli Tepe 11,500 BCE of the Epipaleolithic period or Neolithic Çatalhöyük (both in Turkey) which existed from approximately 7500 BC to 5700 BC to see what was going on w/ human civilizations & Monad/Totemic et al worship. MAGI origin of word MAGI-ck, (Jinn, Genni, Genie) were Astronomers & created the Zodiac which is the Astrotheology cosmogony that most in Theology or Occult won’t talk about. History is vague & obtuse in many areas. Tharacians, Miceneans, Chaldeans, Hittites, Orphians, Phoenicians, Phrygians, Lydians, etc. are all pretty limited in scope of information. Try to get real data on Ptolemy l Soter & Serapis Christus & watch em run…The Pharisee & Sadducees screwed the pooch for good this time. They got caught big time & most who really study ancient history know they ‘winged it’ as in made a lot of stuff up & deliberately left a lot out. All roads lead to Babylon & Rome.

    “It is not a matter of what is true that counts, but a matter of what is perceived to be true.” War Criminal Henry Kissinger

    The pseudo-tribe of self-anoited pious AshkeNAZI claiming the Armrest’s of the Planet & humanity when they are the Hegelian dialectic frauds & criminals to begin with. Talk about a mindbender.

    History is the version of past events that people in ‘POWER’ have decided to agree upon. Ignorant & naive humans generationally accept the version of reality with which they are presented via perception management/social economic interception/social engineering.

  9. There have been no written records found in Egypt to ever support Israelis were kept in bondage . And yet the ancient Egyptians were up to date on keeping records , just as the Germans were during WW II , no such records from the Germans about the fantasy of the 6 million . Consider the boy king Tut whose very own DNA would say his granddaddy was Irish ….More and more as Egyptian mummies are found with red and blond hair , the color red hair is the rarest of human hair color , its also been proven 1/2 of European men have DNA identifiable with the boy King ! But less than 1% of modern day Egyptians carry the Tut gene .

  10. Made up crapola is still made up crapola. No matter how old it is. What will the future think of L Ron Hubbard in a thousand years. Who the bleep knows. But, if someone or a group encapsilates his B.S. as the real deal… All hail Scientology.
    Ah crap, now I get a Rattler in my mail box. Oh well.

  11. “History would be a wonderful thing, if only it were true.” Tolstoy
    Another Russian Writer, Velikovsky, who wrote Worlds In Collision and many others, explains why he wrote them. He was trying to synchronize the biblical stories of the old testament with stories from the collective memory of peoples around the world in regards to cataclysmic events. In Ages in Chaos, he dedicates the book to his father, who he says dedicated his life and fortunes to allowing every Jew to live and die in the land of his ancestors. An Egyptian historian I saw on Youtube, stated that no one had ever found evidence of any kind, that proved that Hebrews had ever set foot in Egypt. Perhaps these stories were borrowed from others, like the Hyksos, who once invaded Egypt and headed in the direction of Syria when the Egyptians expelled them. They were a mixed race group.

  12. “First Person: Did the Kingdoms of Saul, David and Solomon Actually Exist?”
    from the September/October 2017 Biblical Archaeology Review
    Hershel Shanks • 01/18/2019

  13. Isn’t it alleged that the Warburg’s cut a quid pro quo with the British government, bringing the US into WWI in exchange for the Balfour Declaration? Now, if the Warburg’s and others were originally Sephardic Jews, moving from such places as Venice and Spain, as Herr Duff has pointed out in previous exposes, what’s their connection to Ashkenazis, and from where did Sephardic Jews originally emanate?

    • These citations may offer some definitive answers to your question regarding origins of Sephardic Jews – Turkic Ashkenazim etc.
      There are a number of specious problems. IMO, Judaism is a religion not a race. So now all of the sudden there is an agenda to create or try to construct a template of DNA Haplo group origins & establish a race. Geneticist Eran Elhaik claims the DNA of Yiddish speakers could have originated from four ancient villages in northwest Turkey. Which is of course a completely different story than the conventional Biblical account. Oh the wicked web we weave when we practice to deceive. Arthur Koestler already nailed it but was murdered (err ‘suicided’ w/ his wife in 83′) for telling the truth in his book ‘The 13Th Tribe’. People have short memories you’ll notice & don’t read too much. I frankly find it hillarious to continue any meaningful dialogue with scribes or SME when we already know the fraud has been perpetrated though the ages should viviate all of it imo.

      Regarding ‘Ashina’ & ‘Ashide’ Tribes
      There are some amazing coincidences & indications that Hebrew language letter ‘SHIN’ (also spelled ‘Sin’ which coincidentally translates to ‘Moon’ in certain Death Ritual Cults & also ‘Sheen’ or ‘Shining Ones’) Shin is the twenty-first letter of the Semitic abjads, including Phoenician Shin, Hebrew Shin ש‬, Aramaic Shin, Syriac Shin ܫ, and Arabic Shin ش‬. Its sound value is a voiceless sibilant, or. The Phoenician letter gave rise to the Greek Sigma, and the letter Sha in the Glagolitic and Cyrillic scripts. We know that a whole lot of fraud & convoluted re-visionist’s history has already transpired & there seems no sincere efforts to correct the fraud is earnestly being done & only gets worst.

  14. The crux of this issue for Christians, is that if the proof comes out , both halves of the book crumble. So, they stick together, along with their other brother Darryl.
    Pretty tough to know where in history one is, if one does not know what day it is. Current location is essential for plotting a course.

    Hope there will be more collaborations!

  16. In investigations like this, which should be considered a cold case involving stolen text 2000 years ago, we have to consider new evidence if it comes to light.
    Now that multiple sets of the 36 decans have been compared, and each culturally specific entries identified, there can be no valuable discussion about the Old or New testament without them. Likewise for the 20 days and even the trecenas. They are prolifically, expertly , and with cultural specificity laid out throughout the books.

    • Where we do find complete sets of the 36 decans, and the 20 days, are China, Guatemala, North America, South America, Japan, India, Egypt, and curiously the old testament and new testament.
      In that specific correlations with the I-Ching are visible and verbatim in nature, it must be included in the conversation.
      Numbers being not only the most obvious with 36 chapters, is also the most telling as the insertions and modifications by later authors who did not study or know the decans is overwhelmingly obvious.
      The book was stolen and syncretized with older existing stories to form a new religion , which was then used for global conquest.

    • Even further than that, my study, prior to publishing, was to see if the Vatican used those calendars for the scheduling of ceremonies, and other maneuvers. Indeed they do, and with abundance. It is also clear that they are not fully informed nor are they working in concert with any spiritual authority whatsoever. They are like children, fumbling with knowledge beyond their capacity or skill set. It is like watching a couple young teens trying to figure out how to drive a freshly stolen car. As for Judaism they make no mention of any of it either. This will not always be possible as pretty soon, it will all come out.

    • Kimcoo, the correlated index is here http://www.artstrology.com/artstrologicalindex.htm simply follow the index and compare the descriptors. Some of the source links may be dead, but just search for meanings and descriptors of the cycles listed. The Genesis template is published there also, but the best way to dive in, is to study the images and compare to artists or scientists born during the times, after that the biblical text becomes obvious. I usually recommend comparing I-Ching # 5 to chapter 18 Genesis for introduction, I use the Legge translation on sacredtextarchive. When searching the twenty days, be sure to remember Batz is the first day.

  17. I agree that the way the old testament was written was finagled to suit the purposes of the authors, but that it is still based on some core events that really happened. If you come to Christianity after having looked at the darkside you will see the Truths in the Bible. Even as corrupted as Christianity is, if everyone did live by the 10 Commandments the world would be a good place. Christianity did establish some kind of a core of basic decency. Christianity was corrupted by the Catholic Church. Christianity was infiltrated by dark forces after being “adopted” by Constantine. I also think that Synagogue of Satan type intervention actually created Islam. Who was Abu Bakr Mohammed’s father-in-law really?… what religion was Mohammed’s first wife really? or if Islam started out as something good it was corrupted He said, “O my son, do not relate your vision to your brothers or they will contrive against you a plan. Indeed Satan, to man, is a manifest enemy” How was the Koran put together that is dodgy also. Religion does become a political/financial tool in crowd control.

    • I guess this boils down to a long long discussion of the nature of evil and why does evil exsist? Is it just a biological happenstance of nature? or is there a Spiritual construct of good vs evil.

    • In the beginning statement, you state this. – > “I agree that the way the old testament was written was finagled to suit the purposes of the authors, but that it is still based on some core events that really happened. If you come to Christianity after having looked at the darkside you will see the Truths in the Bible.”

      Then at the middle, you decide to say this – > “I also think that Synagogue of Satan type intervention actually created Islam.”

      Then at the end you say this- > “How was the Koran put together that is dodgy also.”

      Do you even know what basic logic is? Basic logic would state that your statement from the beginning is called sleight of hand knowing full well the bible was authored by many people many years AFTER the Christ. Which would have made it open for interpolation. Which would, if you had any intellectual honesty understood was not the same thing that occurred with the recording of the Quran.

      “How was the Koran put together that is dodgy also. ” <- This statement right here stated the way you did, means you do not know basic history much less how things work on the subjects your trying to speak on.

      The Muslims themselves from the beginning until now would memorize and repeat the Quran. With many having memorized the whole Quran and would repeat these chapters throughout their prayer. Does that happen in Christianity? Does that happen in Judaism? Or in any other religion? No. It doesn't.

      No one else prays 5 times per day every day repeating the same book within their prayers. So the Muslims would recite the Quran while Muhammad was alive (and even today) would know if any error would be interpolated within the Quran itself from the corroborating written texts, they themselves would write down. The only thing that was standardized under Uthman was dialect and grammatical marks that would allow novices to understand the Arabic language and make the correct pronunciation when necessary.

      "I also think that Synagogue of Satan type intervention actually created Islam." <- There is no evidence of Christians or Jews meeting Muhammad to concoct another religion where he would for over two decades receive revelations.

      Any such concoction would be obvious to anyone who was with him much less all the thousands of people he met and interacted with, on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis, friend or foe.

      Nor was there some outside attempt from Christians or Jews to orchestrate some unknown person to create a religion to then overrun their own religion (which essentially happened to both), all the while having no control of said religion or its texts, and to top it off there are no people at that time in historical record even amongst his enemies with their numerous statements that would corroborate your insane theory.

      Logically any sane balanced mind would understand Muhammad was not subordinate to Christians nor Jews since their leadership did not embrace him, nor did they change their religion to his, nor did he change his to theirs, nor did they find some way to incorporate his religion to theirs, nor did they pay him allegiance, nor did he pay them allegiance.

      Please don't post ignorant unsubstantiated postulations that just end you showing your ignorance on the subject matter.

    • The study of the Koran and it’s creation by Mohamed is nonsense. As is Christianity and the Hebrew religions. None of it holds up. Complete B.S. However, If you want to embrace an idealogy; then, go for it, more power to you. Just don’t kill everyone that doesn’t see things your way.

    • BTW its QURAN not koran. Learn what your typing or don’t respond on subjects you have zero clue on.

      Fixed. Harry Haller’s statement on The study of the Koran and it’s creation by Mohamed is nonsense.

      Please learn basic reading comprehension and basic responses when responding to previous statements without interjecting unrelated raving incoherence that has nothing to do with what you’re replying to.

      BTW Your bogus conflation that anyone that is Muslim must be killing people is indicative of projectionism, since the last anyone with one sane brain cell looked, it’s the Christian West, or the so-called tolerant west, or the secular west, or the Judeo Christian West that has been monstrously killing people in the middle east by dropping bombs over their heads like their cheap cattle with their lives not worth anything.

      YEAH THOSE SAME MUSLIMS, are being killed by people in the west. Bogus people very much like you that claim Muslims kill when its bogus people such as yourself from the west project that Muslims kill and then champion those same Muslims being killing.

      Making themselves the monstrous killers. So please save everyone your ignorance and point in that direction.

    • “BTW its QURAN not koran.” – Ultimation

      Are not both just transliterations, with the correct spelling being “القرآن”? After all, said book loses it religious authority when translated into other languages (as Kevin Barrett tells us).

  18. The same B.S. about the “Wailing Wall” which in truth is part of an old Roman fort, or that Jews were made slaves to build the Pyramids….more Jewish lies .
    Jews are the ultimate liars. The advent of Christianity comes out of past millennia of Assyrian and earlier religious beliefs, including the Christ figure.
    There was no Israel.

    • All the Israeli “archaeologist” have been desperately searching for any artifact that proves there was an ancient Israel,King Solomon, David ….
      anything that correlates History with the Jew Talmud, so far nothing.
      Don’t you think if there was a guy named “Moses”, adopted by Ramses,
      there would be some kind of history, some hieroglyphics? The Egyptians were anal about recording history, even the grain harvest were recorded,
      but the bible story of Moses….nada! Which proves the Jew Bible is nothing but fairy tales, it’s certainly not a viable land deed.
