Skip to comments.Egyptian Political Scientist: Jews Must Return the Gold They Stole from Egypt during the Exodus
Posted on 08/31/2014 12:34:12 PM PDT by DeoVindiceSicSemperTyrannis
In a July 8, 2014 interview with Egypt's Channel 1, Egyptian political scientist Ammar Ali Hassan said that the Jews had stolen Egypt's gold and treasures when they left ancient Egypt. The character of Shakespeare's Shylock is "a replica of the Jew who lived in Egypt a merchant and a loan shark," he said, adding: "We demand that they return the treasures they stole from us."
Following are excerpts:
Ammar Ali Hassan: The Jews wanted [Egypt] to pay them compensation to the tune of dozens of billions of dollars, although our economy is very hard off. More importantly, they wanted to establish their false claim to historical rights over Egyptian lands.
We know for a fact that Moses was in this land. Most of the Jews who left Egypt to wander in the Sinai Desert were the Jews who defied Moses and rejected his preachings. When they left, they stole Egypt's gold and treasures.
Many of the studies on Jewish financial conduct in the history of Egypt, as well as in the history of humanity as a whole... Take, for example, the character of Shylock in "The Merchant of Venice," by Shakespeare. This character is a replica of the Jew who lived in Egypt a merchant and a loan shark, who deposits his profits abroad, instead of investing them in the country. This is why the Jews have plundered this country all the time beginning with the theft of Egypt's gold in the days of Moses and culminating in what they did to our economy prior to the 1952 revolution.
[Muslim Brotherhood official] Essam Al-Aryan [offered the Jews compensation], but I say the opposite: We demand that they return the treasures they stole from us, including the interest they denied the Egyptian economy for many decades.
These folks are nuts!
How about he pay the Jews for all the BS Muslims put them through even though Jews were there for 1000s of year before Mohammed was even a gleam in his dog fathers eye?
where in the he|| do they find these people?
This is worthy of “South Park”.
Twas not gold, but bronze polished like the sun. The metal was reclaimed from the shsckles and chains broken to flee the Pharos’s land
It also, does not cover the cost of the slaughtering of all the males by Pharoah. I believe the Egyptians owe much more.
Egyptians must compensate the Hebrews for below minimum wage work expended on the pyramids.
About the same level of proof, relevancy, and documentation.
The Jews didn’t steal that gold. It was given to them by the Egyptians.
It obviously doesn’t occur to these brainiacs that
the gold would have been of little use in the desert...
Nothing new under the Sun. Here’s an account from a couple of millennia ago...
The Egyptians brought a lawsuit against the Jews before Alexander of Macedon. They said: “Is it not written, And the Lord had disposed the Egyptians favorably toward the people, and they let them have their request; thus they stripped the Egyptians? Return to us the gold and silver you took!”
Thereupon Geviha b. Pesisa said to the Sages, “Give me permission to go and argue against them before Alexander of Macedon. If they defeat me, you will say, ‘You have merely defeated a common man.’ If I defeat them, you will say, ‘The Torah of Moses has defeated you.’”
So the Sages gave permission, and he went and argued against them. He asked them, “Whence do you derive your proof?” They said, “From the Torah.” He said to them, “Then I will bring proof from nothing other than the Torah, for it was written, The sojourning of the Israelites, who dwelled in Egypt, was 430 years. Pay us the wages for the work of 600,000 whom you enslaved for 430 years.
Alexander of Macedon said to [the Egyptians], Answer them!
“Give us three days’ time.”
They sought an answer but did not find one. Immediately they abandoned their planted fields, and their planted vineyards planted. And that was the sabbatical year.
“And the people of Israel did as Moses had instructed; they asked the Egyptians for clothing and articles of silver and gold. The Lord caused the Egyptians to look favorably on the Israelites, and they gave the Israelites whatever they asked for. So they stripped the Egyptians of their wealth!”
—Exodus 12:35-36, NLT
Sounds like Idiot Egyptian Clown needs to take it up with God or the early Egyptians. Also, who the hell demands recompense from an event that took place about 3500 years ago?
Sooooo, the golden calf wasn’t golden maybe?
40 years in the desert? All that loot?
Sounds like a Wayne Newton gig.
They should ask the IRS to investigate
Talk about holding a grudge.
Makes about as much sense as black reparations.
Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson....oh wait.....
The moon god manufactures them as needed.The fact that they sound like escapees from a sheltered workshop shows what an inept god he is.
I thought they were Hebrews.
Get real, this gold (if any was left) was long gone, stolen by the Assyrians, Babylonians, his Egyptian ancestors as well as the Greeks, Romans and Muslim Empires, and possibly Crusaders..
The Jews should send this guy a bill for 300 years of slave labor.
-—Egyptians must compensate the Hebrews for below minimum wage work expended on the pyramids.——
The Hebrews of the Old Testament did not build the pyramids...
...and they did not work for wages...
They were slaves...
Besides that I agree with your post....!
Reparations, ain’t ya never heard of reparations?
mosses wasn’t much of a navigator was he?
In principle, no different at all from American blacks demanding reparations for slavery.
I agree with this...if the Egyptians can provide an inventory of their lost property. And if the ARE can prove continuity with the pharaonic regime.
What I’m trying to say is...good luck with that.
My understanding of the Hebrew's Old Testament records is that the Egyptians were encouraging a hasty departure by paying the Hebrews to leave and leave quickly.
I also understand the Egyptians later reconsidered their decision but it did not work well for them.
Exactly. They gotta ask IS for it now. Would love to see how that would turn out....
Fine. Then pay the Jews for all the years they were slaves. THEY were owed the gold for slavery and God made sure they were paid.
What a ding-dong.
America has some free black citizens seeking reparations for less than 80 years of slavery some of their black ancestors suffered under in the 16 States who sanctioned slavery.
Hard to be a good navigator in the vast wasteland of a desert. Everything looks the same.
But, that was not the point of the story in the Bible.
The premise was that the 'tribes' were 'lost' because they kept walking in a circle around the same mountain.
They were 'stiff-necked'. This meant they didn't turn their head to notice that the same mountain was over the same shoulder all the time. The point was that they were STUBBORN and refused to listen. They didn't even want to listen to Moses. They blamed HIM for their own stubborn ignorance.
These folks are nuts!
Makes about as much sense as black reparations.
I am all in favor of getting reparations from those that sold them.
“Moses, Moses, everyone talks about Moses, he lead us around in the desert for forty years and took us to the one place in the Middle East that doesn’t have oil.” - Golda Meir
Stiff necked? Bent on going one direction aimlessly?
Sounds like NASCAR.
Perhaps they should sue some descendants of the Prophet (PTUI) for all the losses incurred RE their antiquities that fellow Arabs either looted or destroyed over the years ...
“We know for a fact that ...”
LOL! Sure you do, moron.
I’d probably focus first on the artifacts stolen during colonization before going back over 2000 years!
Worth repeating for those who do not know the story. The Egyptians WANTED the Jews to go.
When Pharoah changed his mind and sent his army after the Jews, the army was destroyed in the Red(some say Reed) Sea.
Truth be told, The Egyptians probably still owe the Jews for the innumerable hours of slave labor expended to build their empire for them.
So, the Islamic nutjob just needs to sit down and shut up.
The Nazis got what was left.
When the Jews left Egypt someone stole my ancestors blanket. Should be worth $90-100 now. Where do I sign up for reparations?
well they may have a point there....the Jews were not slaves after all, they were a bunch of migrants who attacked and overpowered one of the most powerful groups on Earth. Instead of just peacefully parting the Red Sea and escaping captivity, they snuck into the Egyptian treasury and made off with tons of gold....they then hauled these golden tons on the backs of 7 miraculous donkeys to Israel where it exists today in a Jewish bank vault.....seems logical to me !!!
I've always wondered how an English transliteration had anything to do with what was written. "Red' and "reed" sound similar, in English. I don't believe the Old Testament was originally recorded in that language.
“Gimme all your Jewgold!”
No, how about the Egyptians pay reparations for the hundreds of years they kept the Jews as slaves?
The Israelites DID NOT STEAL it .. the Egyptians THREW THE GOLD AT THE ISRAELITES, in hopes the curses that had come upon their land would be abated.
