Egyptian Commentator Demands Jews Return Gold They 'Stole' 3500 Years Ago

Evil Jew slaves stole all of Egypt's gold and glory!!eleventy!!

Not for the first time, an Egyptian commentator (this time a political scientist) has demanded that the Jews compensate Egypt for the gold they took on their way to freedom from slavery.

According to tradition the slaves - who had not been paid for their back-breaking labor for the generations they were enslaved - were handed riches by their former masters who were terrified that the infamous ten plagues would continue should the Jews stay.

It is worth noting that today's Egyptians are mostly the descendants of Arab conquerers - not the ancient Egyptians of Biblical times.

This is not the first time Egyptians have demanded reparations from Israel.

2 Oh hell, I mailed them a certified check years ago when they first tried this scam. Wonder if they ever cashed it. Was made out for current rate USD of $1.53.

3 Unlike most Muslims, Jews take an interpretive view of the Hebrew Bible. In other words, the meaning of what is in the text is meant to instruct, not to document history.

This is one reason why even religious Jews have very little patience for Creationists.

The reason Jews were have said to have taken money with them is because they were slaves and they were seeking freedom. They needed a head start upon which to build --something a slave master owes the former slave.

4 Israel already did, long ago. Considering how often Israel and Judah were tributary states of Egypt - when not under the heel of Assyria or Babylon - they most likely repaid it twenty times over. And that's not including the gold and silver Necho II took back to Egypt with him in 608 BC after he returned through Israel after a joint Egyptian/Assyrian army defeated the fledgling Neo-Babylonian Empire.

5 As I recall my Bible, the 'stolen' goods were given freely by the Egyptians.

6 I am an ultimate Infidel, an atheist. I have to comment on the line about
Egyptians being descendants of Arab conquerors. Just as American blacks like
to claim to be descendants of the pyramid builders, it is equally false to claim
that the Arabs (who came much later,)were in any way related to ancient Egypt.

So, here is my question: If the so-called Palestinians are made up of generic
Arabs, how can they claim to be descendants from
a long dead, pre-Islamic, non Arab
culture, like the Philistines?
I am sure a few of them may have assimilated into Jewish society, but most of them
no doubt dragged their sorry asses back to Crete after the Jews stomped their butts.

Even the Wikipedia entry confuses the two!
