Ancient and modern Egyptian history rewritten

The 12th Egyptian dynasty ends and we are left in the dark about how it ended. The Execration Texts were written towards the end of the 12th dynasty. Some Egyptians were angry about the foreigners living in Egypt. They placed curses on bowls with Canaanite names on them. They smashed the bowls against their walls and floors in protest. They also painted pictures of Canaanite/Hyksos on the bottom of their shoes as acting like they were stomping out their enemy.

There are very few scarabs of Egyptian and Hyksos kings of dynasties 13-17. Seems more like the names given for these dynasties were governors not kings. This might explain why after the 12th dynasty it takes until the end of the 17th dynasty before Thebes goes to war against the Canaanites. This might explain why there was no 13-17 dynasties according to the Abydos Egyptian kings list.

Seqenenre Tao and Kamose could have rebeled against queen Sobekneferu and the Canaanites might have been on her side or there was a war strictly Hyksos against Egyptians. Kamose mentioned traitors were to be dealt with. The 3 years from Seqenenre Tao's death to Kamose death and queen Sobekneferu's 3 year reign might indeed be the key in solving how the 12th dynasty ended and the 18th dynasty began. This might also explain why Sobekneferu's pyramid has never been found. If this was an Egyptian civil war-the winners would have destroyed her pyramid. The winner was Ahmose whose father was Seqenenre Tao and brother was Kamose.

The Hippo waking up Apepi I from a 500 mile roar starting the Hyksos Egyptian conflict is simply not the truth. Ahmose battle against the Hyksos does not mention much either.

Modern Egyptians have gotten rid of Mubarak. Egypt was at peace with Mubarak. Now the Arab governments throughout the Middle-East want Israel to return to 1947 borders. The rioting in the streets of Arab nations for justice does not change the Arab hatred towards Israel. The Arabs want to change the history books by changing Israel's borders.

We can see how ancient scribes can alter history; we can witness the rewriting of history in the time we now live. The world listens to the Arab nations because the Arabs have oil and the Saudis are rewriting history.

The world will listen to Israel when Israel strikes oil; Israel has already found the natural gas, yet the Arabs will want that too. Another war is on the horizon with Hamas and Hezbullah loading their guns. Israel is blessed by God having the technology to defeat its enemies. The next war will bring about permanent borders where the Arabs live in Jordan and the Jews live in Israel. The next victory will have many people in the world looking at Israel's history.
