“How come the Egyptians, who eye-witnessed the vengeful wrath of the Exodus god, never glorified YHWH nor converted to Judaism soon after?”
… by Dr. Ashraf Ezzat
Once again I will talk about the Israelite stories. … Why? Because those stories are still alive and being told over and over again. Those stories have the same effect they had thousands of years ago when they were first told.
Their seemingly perpetual impact is not because they surpass the Shakespearean genius but because the Israelites claimed their stories were written down with a pen immersed with divine revelation- their own divine god of course.
Those stories, without the divine dye splashed all over it, are but a bunch of myths copycatted from other ancient Near Eastern culture and mythology.
The original myth, before it had been hijacked by the Israelites like the Sumerian deluge (Noah’s flood) made sense in its native cultural context. After the Hebrew hijack not only did the story stop to make sense, but it also made a lot of damage.
The evolution of the ancient Near Eastern mythology has been broken, snatched out of its context and manipulated to serve and benefit a tribe of nomadic Hebrews.
Someone will always claim the Hebrews never copycatted neighboring mythology, not on purpose that is. And that was just a normal give-and-take between neighboring cultures.
I would agree to the hypothesis if only I was told what on earth that the Babylonians or the Egyptians have taken from the Hebrews (assuming they had a cultural product aside from that book of appropriated tales and nomadic laws)
Read my article “Hebrew Bible: plagiarized mythology and defaced monotheism”
On the other hand the magnificent mythology and theology of the Egyptians and the Babylonians have been blasphemized /demonized by the scribes of those apocalyptic-minded nomads. (Unlike the Egyptian or the Mesopotamian civilizations, the Hebrews left no works of art, architecture, or cosmology)
Many are regrettably unconscious of the fact that as we keep on retelling the Israelite stories we are simply celebrating and reviving an intolerant tribal dogma saturated with male chauvinism and racism and devoid of any depth or creativity.
It seems we, generation after generation, have taken those Hebrew stories for granted, or we generation after generation have escaped the evolution of human logic and critical thinking.
The Israelite stories are received with preconceived blind belief in their truth and sacredness. Newer generations around the globe are being indoctrinated with them, and as they grow up so do the stories of the Israelites.
The Israelite stories are so dangerous because they were not meant to be accepted like folklore tales but rather embraced as beliefs and deeds of divine wonder and intervention.
The Israelite stories were meant to grip your mind and shape your spiritual conscience (provided that you had one of those prehistoric minds and imagination- unfortunately there’s still a lot of those around – evolution runaways I guess!)
The Hebrew Bible with its stories is the kick starter for Christianity and Islam.
By embracing that Hebrew Bible the Roman empire was able to control east and west and due to the same stories the new world imperialism has unleashed Zionism and helped it devour most of the Arab land of Palestine and a great chunk of world’s economy.
Radical and militant Islamist groups currently engaged in violence and terrorism worldwide is soaked to the skin by Israelite culture and mindset.
That old book of stories is dirty politics in disguise.
The Hebrew book of tales is so perplexing for modern scholars. For historians it is full of anachronisms and discrepancies. For archeologists it is mostly refuted for lack of any archeological finds that could verify the validity of its tales.
For anthropologists it is talking about an ethnic group that left no trace of its culture or human activity to prove they existed as described in the stories, except the stories themselves.
The Exodus, the Israelites’ most pivotal tale, is archeologically and historically not only invalidated but absolutely nonexistent.
Modern archeologists, including those of Biblical Archeology and Israelis, have unearthed every possible bit of land, from Egypt in the west up to Sinai, Palestine, Jordan, Israel, and Syria in the northern east trying to find an evidence of this so called Hebrew Exodus.
Over a period of almost 80 years of extensive digging, under the collaboration of so many western archeology departments and institutions, and with access to the latest technology in excavation, Archeologists found absolutely nothing.
Not a single shred of archaeological evidence, not even a piece of pottery was found to validate this weird tale of Exodus.

That leaves us with a two-option conclusion; either the Israelites were aliens from outer space who exited Egypt in their spaceship or this whole epic of enslavement, and Exodus never happened. Even aliens should have left some trace in Egypt where they supposedly dwelled for long 420 years.
To be honest, there is still one more possibility for this tale of Exodus. If it really happened, it must have happened somewhere else. The exodus could have happened, but not in Egypt.
Scholars, and according to the Hebrew Bible, have put the exodus somewhere between 1500 -1400 BCE a time known as the new kingdom in ancient Egyptology and specifically the eighteenth dynasty.
The New Kingdom is one of the best documented eras in the whole history of ancient Egypt. Scholars of history and archeology are inundated with meticulous records from that era that cover the official chronicles of the new Egyptian kingdom in times of both war and peace.
Apart from the royal records, we have a variety of inscriptions and papyri that reflect the daily life of Egyptians in that period in time; agriculture, trade, buildings and craftsmanship, art and religion … all the way up to funerals and burial ceremonies.
We have records of almost everything that took place in the new kingdom; we are even left with papyri depicting the sexual life of ancient Egyptians, and papyri showing the journey of the human soul into the afterlife after death.
But when it comes to the Israelites; their god and their stories of enslavement and exodus, I could safely claim – with great pleasure that is- that we don’t even have a slight shadow of them. (Merneptah Stele is not a proof of the presence of 600 000 Israelite slave in Egypt)
Scholars and experts of history and archeology have been examining this tale of exodus for decades. Baffled by its inaccuracies and discrepancies most of the experts have finally reached a solid conclusion: that the exodus is only a myth that has nothing to do with down to earth-history.
Ashraf Ezzat’s discovery
Being an independent researcher in Egyptology, I myself have contributed to the long line of researches and finds that have scientifically examined the tale of the exodus and helped to separate the myth from the truth in that Israelite story.
Mine is a find that, if widely propagated, could blow the story of the exodus right out of its roots. My humble research did not focus on Moses, but on Pharaoh.
Pharaoh is a widely used designation that allegedly refers to the ruthless king of Egypt who ruled during the story of Moses. Its origin is of course the Hebrew Bible. And as the story of Moses grew popular and bigger over the centuries so did the title “Pharaoh”
The widespread popularity of the term has led the public everywhere to refer to the kings of Egypt as pharaohs – even now in the academic realm Pharaonic Egypt is synonymous with ancient Egypt (what a mess)
Anyway, and after years of research, I found out that ancient Egypt had no Pharaohs and knew no Pharaohs and above all the pharaoh of Moses.
Read my most read online article “Ancient Egypt knew no Pharaohs nor any Israelites”
Not once throughout the most enduring civilization in the ancient world had we stumbled upon a wall carving or papyri showing the word “Pharaoh” that directly or generically refer to the king of ancient Egypt.
Ancient Egypt was ruled by kings and queens of thirty dynasties over a timespan that stretched for almost 3000 years as the first Egyptian monarch was crowned over Egypt in 2925 BCE.
According to the ancient Egyptian royal titulary, the king of Egypt had five names “hours name, Golden name, two lands name, birth name and throne name”
The king’s name was officially documented on royal palaces’ walls and temples by his throne title carved inside a cartouche.
According to the Hebrew oral tradition king Ramses II was referred to as the Pharaoh of Exodus.
Ironically the Hebrew scribes learned about this great king of the nineteenth dynasty by his Greek name “Ramses” and nobody told them that the throne name for this great king was “Usermaatre-setpenre”
If you research the word “Pharaoh” on the internet you will find many online encyclopedias conceding to the fact that pharaoh has never been the official Egyptian royal title.
But nevertheless and due to the Zionist control over the mainstream media and the internet, especially the big venues and data outlets such as Encyclopedia Britannica you would probably find them cunningly adding that Pharaoh or “per aa” – Great house or royal palace in hieroglyphic- started to be a generic name for the king of Egypt during the late new kingdom.
They also add that the designation “Pharaoh” was detected in one of the Amarna letters, archeological find relating to 18th dynasty, and that trend culminated in dynasty 22nd.
That of course is nothing but a Zionist crap that began to propagate on the web to counterbalance the catastrophic effect of modern archeology debunking the myth of the Exodus.
I’ve personally exposed that Zionist fraud by examining all the original text of what is known as the Amarna letters, King Akhenaten’s (18th dynasty) royal correspondence with heads of the Egyptian protectorates in ancient Canaan and with the monarchs of Mitanni and Babylon at the time.
Not once the title “Pharaoh” had been detected during directly addressing king Akhenaten in those famous and highly important letters and when it was enforced in the translation it had to strictly refer to the King’s royal palace not the monarch in person.
For example, in the Babylonian king’s letter he addressed Akhenaten (Amenhotep) by his throne name “from Kadashman Enlil of Babylon to Nefer khepru re – throne name of Amenhotep of Egypt” … whereas in a similar letter king of Mitanni went “To Amenhotep, King of Egypt, my brother whom I love and who loves me. Thus speaks Tushratta, King of Mitanni who loves you”
But when Akhenaten was sent a letter from a minor governor like that of Gezer in Canaan, he would say “To the king, my lord, my god, my sun, the sun in the sky. Thus says Yapahu, the amelu of Gazru. I am the king’s servant and the dust of your two feet.
So the foreign kings addressed king Akhenaten as a brother to them while minor governors as the king’s servants … only the Israelites and their god called the king of Egypt as the royal palace of Egypt “Per a” … for that what any foreigner’s wildest dream was .. to take a quick peek at the king’s royal palace .. but definitely not to address him in person.
The story of Exodus was a story by foreigners who knew nothing about the traditions in ancient Egypt and who thought they could get away with their concocted tale. For ancient Egypt had already been history by the time the story was written down.
Most probably the story started spreading during the Greek invasion of Egypt, aka the Ptolemaic dynasty (323–30 BC).
Now, let’s move to my second big find concerning this story of alleged exodus from Egypt.
Why Egypt never converted to Judaism
But before we do that, let’s pinpoint the target behind this Exodus story. Why was it concocted by the Hebrew scribes in the first place? What were those deceitful scribes up to?
Unlike what Hollywood is cleverly trying to portray; the exodus was not about setting the Hebrew slaves free from the ruthless Egyptian bondage (by the way, and to expose the Israelite fraud even more; slavery was not a common practice in ancient Egypt and it was introduced into the land of the Nile in the Greco-Roman period – hundreds of years after the alleged timing of the exodus)
The exodus was not about handing down a moral code of Ten Commandments (the Egyptian moral code surpassingly consisted of 42 commandments including what was blatantly missing in the Moses’s code – Thou shalt not lie.
The Exodus was about demonstrating that the Hebrew’s tribal god was mightier than the Egyptians’ supreme god and his pantheon of deities.
The ten plagues is one of the bloodiest and most monstrous displays of a divine rage over an earthly kingdom. It was obvious that the vengeful Hebrew tribal god was so outraged and bloodthirsty he practically went on a wild rampage and wreaked havoc all over Egypt.
Nothing and no one was spared YHWH’s wrath and devastation except the Israelites.
The Nile turned into blood, the crops and farmers were raided with frogs, lice and flies and a stormy wind swept across the land before all Egypt was shrouded in total darkness and loud wailing worse than there has ever been or ever will be again.
YHWH has finally proven himself as the mightiest god. The Hebrew god has devastated the land of the Nile, ruined its temples, desecrated its pantheon of deities and undoubtedly overpowered the supreme god of the Egyptians.
Now the valid and inevitable question is (how come the Egyptians, who eyewitnessed the vengeful wrath of YHWH, never glorified the Hebrews’ god nor converted to Judaism soon after?)
Throughout the long route of history, people needed and waited for tangible miracles to help them believe in a supreme and almighty god.
Here is YHWH, the tribal god of the Hebrews revealing his power to the Egyptians in miraculous plagues and exodus and yet he was not worshiped or even recognized amongst the people of ancient Egypt. And ironically when it was time for Egypt to convert, around 4th century AD, most Egyptians converted to Christianity.
What does that tell us? … There is no maybe in the answer to this question. There is no denying it. The truth is staring us in the face.
The Egyptians never witnessed the Israelites’ exodus nor suffered the plagues of their tribal god. Just as ancient Egypt never knew any Pharaohs.
I don’t think we need any more archeological evidence when the story itself with all its tribal shallowness and discrepancies is contradicting and discrediting itself.
Ladies and gents of the 21st century, you – and your ancestors- have been lied to and played for fools for long 21 centuries. Do you still need another 21 centuries to wake up out of your gullibility and find an Exodus out of the Israelites’ enduring deception?
Nevertheless, the exodus hoax will live on … as long as we keep indoctrinating our children with those Israelite fake stories.
