How about: Aristotle, Socrates, Plato or Πλάτων, Σωκρατης, Αριστοτέλης ! They came from the ܡܥܪܒܐ (Syro-Aramaic Ma'raba or West/Sunset/Europe) No?

Jesus, David, Job and Solomon came from the ܡܕܢܚܐ or Madnaha (Syro-Aramaic word for East of the Mediterranean sea or the Levant) Remember both Christianity and Judaism came from the East and not the West!

For Arabic speaking readers: Compare Aramaic Ma'raba to Arabic المغرب or al-Maghrib or Sunset and الغرب or al-Gharb or the West (Europe)

The amazing Aramaic language!
