You seem to be mite confused about things British, especially in the development of our language.
e.g. the terms Hurrah / Huzzah – these are not Hebrew but are are very similar to battle shouts recorded in German, Danish, Swedish i.e. Nordic – thought to have been introduced into England during the Thirty Years' War (1618 - 1648) . Hurra & Huzzah were known to be battle cries of Prussian soldiers during the War of Liberation (1812-13). Hooray is also seen as hurray (1780); hurroo (1824); hoorah (1798).
The Benei Yisro’el /aka Hapiru (‘land thief-nomad’) had a number of battle cries, none of which sounded like Hurrah/Horray or Huzzah. They would sometimes shout terms like Emmanu-El Emmanu-El !! (lit. ‘EL is on OUR side !’ – a title later applied to the Meshiaq.
I hate to ask but…Did… you… go… to… college?
