Much of the War in Iraq and in the Sinai before that was to erase archeological evidence and the Habiru are very much the Hebrew there G-ds were unnamed and added into treaties throughout the region that they must be respected even without a name. They functioned very much like the do today and in Diaspora as mercenaries, artisans, merchants of slaves, weapons and jewels and gold, political advisors and pirates. They always inserted themselves into communities as seperate but equal people and often gained total power through the process. Of course just like today they were only interested in their own wealth and power as a seperate people and cared not for the people they ruled over when they gained power, which led to those people eventually rebelling against their heavy handed and self serving rule. The pattern hasn't changed in thousands of years Michael. The Habiru are the Hebrew and many scholars do in fact accept it even though Zionist Scholars argue against it.
Erasing the Habiru legacy is a key task of Zionist Archeologists why do you think the first thing that fell in Baghdad was the Museum, why do you think Syria is a closed society, why do you think Egypt is paid billions of dollars each year.
And yes as I have said even the Zionist must abide by Rome's wishes.
Sorry Michael it's a bit part the Zionists and Habiru play I keep telling you it's not all about them! I know you want them to be the center of Universe but that's Rome not Jerusalem.
Most of history has been distorted, obscured and rewritten for reasons and purposes of control and propogating these religious control cult fictions on the masses.
I tell you what if I am wrong get your G-d to stop by my house and inform me to the contrary please let him know he will have a lot of explaining to do for the state the planet is in, and that I will have some very harsh words for him. Oh and remind him I have a temper!
Good strategic maneuver. Getting more outrageous while upping the self-effacing facade to reposition yourself as 'lovable fool' as opposed to 'vicious distorter.'
If I'm not careful I'll end up coming off as your straight man.
If you do actually have any interest in Middle East ancient history other than to scoop up factoids to spin your bizarro mundo webs, it's an interesting time to check out new developments.
Much of what has been passing for history of the region is now known to be the straining of devout Christian attempting to reconcile the decidedly non-historical biblical folklore with archeological finds.
Turns out there never was a King Solomon and those patriarch going back to Abraham. No 12 tribes, Egyptian Exodus, Moses, and most of the other revered fairy tale figures. All a reassembled myth cycle cobbled together circa 200 BC comprised of reconditioned parts legendry from diverse sources. A bit like your potted world histories.
Read a book called "The Mythic Past" by Copenhagen based scholar, Thomas L. Thompson. Truly eye-opening stuff that shatters a lot of long-held dogmas, filling in a newer understanding of the interweaving shared culture of ancient Hebrews, Assyrians, Babylonians, Hittites, et al.
