I think I need some fire baked bricks so I can get the bike in the garage. The cement ramp didn't last very long.
Noted by whom ?
More Occidentals of ancient & medieval Europe that have re-written & re-invented a history that is not really theirs to begin with: the history of the Middle Eastern people ?
For one, the Philistines were NOT an Aegean people. Their very appellation indicates this. And hypothetically, if they were, this would have made them closely related to the ancient Greeks...
The Ashkenazis/Khazars that have "founded" the modern day State of Israel, which nearly all Ashkenazis and practically the entire world mispronounce as I-Z-R-I-E-L, happens to be the appellation of the Archangel of Death--Izrail [Aramaic/Arabic] or Azrael [Hebrew].
Israil [properly pronounced I-SSS-R-A-EE-L] was the titular name or laqab of Grand Sheikh Yaqub Israil of Madyan[Midian], NW Arabia.
Let's face it, the "Israelis" are wannabe Middle Easterners, and that is all they have ever been. Just like the cliche of the imposters or pretenders to the throne who loathe the rightful heirs and unlawfully banish them, unjustly imprison them, or horribly mistreat them.
But the historical facts are that our Ashkenazi brethren have nothing at all to be in denial of since they really are the descendants of the mythogenic Trojans of Troy. The survivors of the siege and utter destruction of Troy, Anatolia, DID NOT head for Italy but headed East to the Ukraine. There is historical evidence to support this. The very appellation Ascanius or Ashkenaz happened to be the names of three separate legendary Trojans. The Trojans evolved into the Scythians or Skuza/Ashkuzain/Ashkenaz, who in turn evolved into the Khazars. Just like the North Sumerians evolved into the Akkadians, who then evolved into the Assyro-Babylonians or Assyrians, who in turn evolved into the Chaldeans or Neo-Babylonians. The one specialty that was the mark of the Trojans was that they were exceptional goldsmiths & silversmiths. This distinct craft was passed down to when they evolved into Scythians/Ashkenazis and later Khazars.
Another key link between the Trojans and the Scythians was that they were excellent archers and arrowsmiths. The appellation of Scythia is a corruption of Skuza = Archer. The legendary Paris, son of King Priam, was a superb archer, as were the three legendary Trojans named Ascanius[Ashkenaz]: two of whom were Ascanius, son of King Priam & brother of Paris and Ascanius, son of Aeneas. Lake Iznik in modern day Turkey was formerly Lake Ascania [Askenazi in medieval Turkic, not modern Turkish], as it was named in honor of either Ascanius, son of Priam or Ascanius, son of Aeneas.
Consequently, the ancient Roman claim that their founding fathers Romolo and Remo were the direct descendants of Trojan prince Aeneas is a colossal fallacy. The Roman claim of being direct descendants of the Trojans was false. However, it was not surprising because the Trojans of Anatolia[Turkey] once fully dominated the entire Aegean Sea and were the envy of the comparatively backward Greek states. The Trojans were pure Anatolians just as the Romans were pure Italians. The Hatti or Hittites were also pure Anatolians just as the Etrurians or Etruscans were also pure Italians.
And yes, the Trojans and their direct descendants have a history of being expelled from their homelands: first from Troy, Anatolia[Turkey] by the Greeks; then from Scythia/Khazaria[Ukraine] by the Kievan Rus & the Mongols.
Also, in the Greek language Old Testament book of the Septuagint, the Hebrew language Ashkenaz, son of Gomer, son of Japheth, son of Noah, is written as Ascanias [spelled Ascanius in Latin]. Just as Elijah [pronounced Eli-yah] is written as Elias; Zachariah is written as Zacharias; Moshe is written as Moses; etc. ...
The idea that the Messiah Isa/Jesus, like the prophets Ibrahim/Abraham, Ishaq/Isaac, Yaqub/Jacob, Musa/Moses, etc., actually wore a "towel" over his head is the Western world's WORST NIGHTMARE...
Oh BTW, you missed another lively special guest appearance by our old buddy Mohalamine...
