The great irony of Egyptian antiques history and how the Jews fled north and under Moses, wander in the Sinai desert for forty years. As they moved north they found dry but arable land and this surely, after the desert, and the swords of Egypt, was the land of milk and honey. Their promised land.
Which now many others dispute, and many European descendants of Moses seem as fully arrogant as they create homes and walls around lands occupied by others since they were sent away as troublesome terrorists by Rome whose moral arrogance had insisted on the death of Jesus, and who now look down on all other faiths as lesser in the eyes of God than them. Such arrogance comes before many a fall, and somehow such victims from Hitler place in ghettos others who once lived where they live, and they bomb them.
And these are people, excuse me, from inside or outside that ghetto in Warsaw that fought to the death. Yet if we look at a map of that area that Moses left, and wandered for forty year before he embedded in the minds and souls of several millions, what if he had applied that famous Jewish brainpower and headed west?
With the power of Jewry today, if you notice, Moses and his followers would have been far better to dig by hand if necessary, a channel of the Nile to split before it wasted fresh water into the sea. Since Alexander has created mighty greater Athens at Alexandria, if you did wisely negotiate with the present pharoah of Egypt,and divide the Nile at that point, and dig that channel that sends more than half the Nile south west, and into the vast Quattaro Depression in west Egypt, the largest area of an under sea desert or area in the world.
With the genius of modern science, engineering, political wisdom, Moses reborn should arrange to give that mess of the first try back to the locals, and get busy over here. Science says it would take a century to fill this vast area into a lake as from eden. Raw sandy land with nary a settler could be wide fields of year long produce with their half of the Nile, providing a century of hydro, until their promised land, revised, using brains and a map than blind theology, would be a wise step forward for each faith that hangs to it's own personal arrogance that all others are some version of an infidel.
Grow up, you people, moral arrogance from both. There are abundant opportunities, to then have yourself safely inside the new Europe that will sweep. This could cause riots in Cairo. But you might ask any of the ten million in town- have they ever been over there? Why would any sane person ever visit that God forsaken land? I am glad you asked such a provocative question.
And a century from now when that fresh water lake fills up, some civilization could again build a lush garden on either side of that final portion of the west Nile to reach the sea. It is good to have dreams and ideals, that no sane blind follower of any faith could imagine.
Look at a map. The elevation, the route, the time line, all are as if a gift from God, that Moses, sand in his eyes, missed. He was not God. And this tortured history was really no; written in stone. Guilt from Hitler placed the victims in a place that was no longer of them. After the war, what they needed, I thought as a lad, was a less conflicted place land for their promised milk and honey. Give them empty sandy desert that is west, not north, they will grow figs, produce milk, and honey. Out of sand and fresh water. It is right there, people migrate, a huge potential land of milk of honey with no people there.
Now I will go disconnect my phone until harmony and wisdom arrives. I fear God shakes his head at all parties in the middle east. Forty years would be fortunate.
