“Hey Average Joe, did you see this map?
“Look where Israel ought to be it says Palestine. And it says it was called Palestine 4000 years ago! It’s as if the Jews never lived there. Can that be right?”
replied Average Joe,
“It must be right. After all it is in the Ancient Egypt section of the British Museum!”
Once again Britain shows her antisemitic sentiment.
I had the opportunity to visit the British Museum in May. Loved the Egypt exhibit. We had spent four days in Egypt in 2009. Sadly the last safe year for tourists. Egypt is an extraordinary country with thousands of years of history-glorious history. We saw the Pyramids and the Sphinx and rode on camels! Think about the ingenuity of the people who built these monuments, only with manpower, no machines. We visited The Temple of Karnac and the Valley of the Kings in Luxor. We went into the crypts. Filled with marvelous murals that speak to religious beliefs. We walked through the Egyptian Museum-in Egypt!
And then the Egypt Exhibit in the British Museum.
And the map jumped out at me. “Palestine”?
How could that be?
So I wrote to the museum to express my concern ...
