Star of David found engraved on ancient Egyptian temple causes ‘bustle’ in Egypt

911[1]

The Roman Ptolemaic Temple, which dates back to the 3rd century B.C, is located in the Elephantine Island in Aswan.

(Head of the Egyptian Antiquities branch in the Antiquities Ministry Dr. Mahmoud) Afifi accused the delegation of German archaeologists that has been working on the site’s reconstruction of engraving the Stars of David into the Shrine’s stone.

Afifi ordered the archaeologists to immediately remove the stone with the Star of David’s engraving from the temple, threatening to take all legal measures against them if they would ever repeat such a move.

An Egyptian news site, Suezbalady, went even further, claiming that the two Star of David engravings that were found were drawn by a Jewish member of the German delegation, who wanted to vandalize Egyptian culture and provoke Egyptians.

      Swastikas wouldn’t have been a problem.

        The Hindus invented Ancient Egypt?

    I’m feeling microaggressed already.

    “Roman Temple, which dates back to the 3rd century B.C.”
    ? The Romans didn’t make Egypt a province of their empire until 30 BC when they deposed Cleopatra.

    Obviously Elephantine Island is part of Israel.

      Plenty of archaeological evidence that Jews were there at least since the 6th C. BCE and most likely before.

        I’m calling for Israel to return to it’s 6th century BC borders.

          We were there in ’67. They were booking bar mitzvot at the Cairo Hilton (joke).

    • Get the EU, the UN, the US and the RF to give us back our land!

        I couldn’t believe how the Egyptian antiquities director lost it. Even their educated people are looney tunes.

    Do they know or care how ridiculous their hysterical hatred of Joos makes them look to the civilized world?

      Having an issue with a Muslim Stalker continually yelling death threats to me and my family on Facebook. You are under the mistaken idea that these sand monkey’s have the ability to think rationally. Step away from that mind frame and it all becomes logical.

  • It is a well known and long-documented historical fact that there was a large Jewish colony in Elephantine, and they even built a Temple there (contrary to Jewish law).

    Obviously, this Antiquities minister is an ignoramus. Indeed, all Muslims are ignoramuses because they are incapable of assessing and accepting objective facts, and can only deal with the imaginary “facts” their nutty religion considers permissible.

      Forget Wikip. (I know it’s quick and easy, but wrong too often for my liking). Check out this:

        It now appears that Jews from this colony drifted southward up the Blue Nile into Ethiopia, where they formed the community now in Israel that practiced a form of pre-Talmudic Judaism.

          Do you mean the Falashim? The tiny bit I know about them (which admittedly is next to zero) is that they were pre-Exodus which was circa 1500-1200 BCE (historians differ).

      • Of course, I was just giving a quick ref. I personally get my history from history books! Much more enjoyable than Internet.

    Idle curiosity: What is the translation of Scientific Method into IslamSpeak?

    Whatever it is it must fit here.

    “An Egyptian news site, Suezbalady, went even further, claiming that the two Star of David engravings that were found were drawn by a Jewish member of the German delegation, who wanted to vandalize Egyptian culture”

    muslims have been vandalizing Egypt and its culture for almost 1400 years.

      surely not! <:o)

    • Look what they’ve been doing to Syrian and Iraqi antiquities. They’re barbarians.
