The information I wrote in this book was based on more than thirty five years of constant learning and research. My sources were newspapers in the Middle East and Southeast Asia plus unclassified military documents.
Domestically, I reviewed World Books, National Geographic stories, History Channel documentaries, World Almanacs and any publication I could find and read about the places I had been, the people I had met.
Speaking of History Channel documentaries. About December 2006, I rented a DVD from Blockbuster. The title, this made for the History Channel documentary, was "Exodus Decoded."
Allegedly, four years of research were expended on the documentary. The producer was Mr. James Cameron.
For those of us that have sought the truth regarding the Bibical tales of God's direct intervention to make the Hebrews (individuals of Judaism) God's Chosen People and granting Canaan (Palestine) to the Hebrews; the film debunks the Bible version of the Exodus. (If in fact there was one.)
The director and producer went to great lengths to show events like the Nile turning red, the Egyptian first born dying, boils, plus the other plagues brought against Pharaoh were in fact acts of nature. (The planet evolving.) For example, the plagues identified became a reality, exactly like what written in Exodus, in the African country of Cameroon. The viewer of the films sees visual proof of what nature can, did do, and continues to do. One should not be amazed as volcano eruptions, earthquakes, shift of the earths plates, and other natural acts that affect our planet occur each day.
Yes, of course, individuals like Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, James Dobson and the multitude of ministers will declare the events/discoveries were the will of God. Truth from ministers could eleminiate or decrease the milllions of dollars they receive annually preaching lies to Americans. Too many in the Bible Belt adore individuals of wealth and fabricators of the truth. Look who resides in the White House.
For those citizens of the Red States and religious zealots, I would like to address the "Treaty of Peace and Friendship between the United States and the Bey and Subjects of Tripoli of Barbary." The Senate ratified and President John Adams signed the treaty for the United States on June 7, 1797.
The following is the complete text of Article 11 of said treaty. "As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility of Mussulmen; and, as the said States never entered into any war, or act of hostility against an Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties, that no pretext arising from religious opinions, shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries."
We have a great nation but unless a national referendum is placed on a national ballot soon, we will disappear as a viable nation.
The referendum needed would ask the American people:
(1) Is the United States of America responsible for the economic and physical security of the Socialist Country of Israel?
(2) Will the American people allow the U.S. Government to continue classifications of individuals, whose religion is Judaism, as Jews?
Normally, I suppose one would close by stating "God Bless America" but I could never believe in a God or government that allows genocide.
