1. The Hittites in Israel [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 4 No 1 (Jul 1981) Home¦ Issue Contents The Hittites in Israel Martin Sieff The Book of Kings contains the following account of the end of the seige of Samaria by the Syrian army during the troubled reign of Jehoram, son of Ahab, king of Israel: For the Lord had made the host of the Syrians to hear a noise of chariots, and a noise of horses, even the noise of a great host: and they said one to another, "Lo, the king of Israel hath hired against us the kings of the Hittites, and the kings of the Egyptians, to come upon us." Wherefore they arose and fled in the twilight, and left their tents, and their horses, and their asses, even the camp as it was, and fled for their life (2 Kings 7:6-7). Velikovsky comments, in the light of his Revised Chronology: "We know that the fear of the Syrians at the walls of Samaria was not groundless. The king of ...

... , and abrupt changes in the position and direction of the earth ? s axis, and the changes in the times of the equinoxes and solstices all were registered on clay tablets, numbering in the tens of thousands. Despite this cultural progress at home, the Assyrians carried on wars of unusual brutality, and often wantonness. In the double shadow of the brutality and wantonness spread by excesses of nature and the Assyrian weapons, the peoples on the land bridge between present Iraq the home of Assyria and Babylonia and Egypt, namely the Syrians, Phoenicians, Israelites and Judeans, acted each in line with their cultural instincts. The Syrians emulated the Assyrians, the Phoenicians heroically defended their maritime cities, but then retreated to build new colonies overseas; yet in parts of the Lebanon of today the proclivity for trade still survives, attesting to the persistence of a national character. To the south, in Israel and Judah, the said double shadow gave birth to a unique brand of prophets, actually a blend of religious reformers and social revolutionaries, who vigorously opposed the ...
3. A Critique of "Ramses II and His Time" [SIS C&C Review $]
... ), ergo the Chaldaeans were the real bearers of the culture usually dubbed "Hittite". However, no Greek or Roman author said that Chaldaeans lived in Commogene. The Chalybes (sometimes spelt Chaldaei) were tribesmen who lived in the hills of Armenia, and they were not the same as the Chaldaei who were the priests and people of Babylonia in classical terminology, despite the similarity in name. The inhabitants of Cappadocia, the area of the old Hittite centres, were called "Syrii", "Leucosyrii" (White Syrians) or simply Cappadocians by the Greeks and Romans. The usage of the term "Syria" by Herodotus and other Greeks [36 is perfectly analogous to the Assyrian term "Hatti", which applied to Syria proper, the Taurus area and the Cappadocian plateau. Velikovsky agrees with most scholars that Pteria in Cappadocia was the Greek name for Boghazk÷y- in his description of its sack by Croesus, Herodotus described the inhabitants as Syrians [37, not Chaldaeans. That, briefly, is the answer to the question: under ...

... erected triumphant stelae on the Mediterranean in Lebanon, he boasted. He was allied with princes of upper Syria, notably Carchemish and Qatna, and with Hammurabi of Babylon.[30 It is known that Hadarezer was ruler of the kings beyond the river (2 Samuel 10:16, 19), i.e. the Euphrates, as later records from Assyria also confirm.[43 This description resembles that of Shamsi-Adad. Hanun, son of Nahash, the king of Ammon, humiliated the envoys of David and hired Hadadezer and his Syrians of Beth-Rehob and Zobah, along with soldiers of the kings of Maachah (variant, King Maachah) and Ish-Tob.[32 David defeated Hadarezer and "the Syrians feared to help the children of Ammon any more." It must have been shortly after this that Shamshi-Adad died and the situation in Mesopotamia deteriorated and the kingdom of Zobah lost its supremacy. "And when all the kings that were servants to Hadarezer saw that they were smitten before Israel, they made peace with Israel, and served them." Samsi-Addu ( ...

... armies against Asa of Judah but was defeated (II Chron. 14:9-13). On the revised model he would have been Amenhotep II, who suffered a reverse in Palestine; on the conventional scheme there is no mention of any campaigning in Palestine during the reign of Osorkon I. Later, in the days of Elijah and Elisha, there are hints of a lingering Egyptian presence in Palestine, such as the Egyptian name of Amon, governor of Samaria (II Chron. 18:25), the fear of the Syrians besieging that city that "the kings of Egypt" were liable to descend on them (II Kings 7:6), and the participation of Egyptian troops in a battle as far north as Karkar in 853 BC. Was this the time of the Libyan rulers Osorkon II and Takeloth II, who did not rule or campaign in Palestine, or that of Amenhotep III and Akhnaton, when Egypt was struggling to maintain control of its northern empire? (See I. Velikovsky: "The Sulman Temple in Jerusalem"; ...
6. Ramessides, Medes and Persians by Emmet J. Sweeney (Reviewed) [SIS C&C Review $]
... Cimmerians, Gutians (= Quti, Scythians?), Hatti( Hittites, 'Imperial' and 'Neo'), Hellenists, Hurrians (= Urartians?), Iranians, Kassites, Libyans (= Ptolemies?), Luwians (who include Phrygians and Lycians), Lydians (= Scythians and/or Hittites?), Medes, Mitannians (= Medes?), Persians, Sardans, Sargonids, Scythians (including the Umman-Manda), Semites, Sumerians(' Early', 'Early Dynastic' and 'Neo'), Syrians and Urartians (= a sub-division of Hittites?). Unfortunately, the possibilities of confusions or overlaps between these groups appear to be almost endless, permitting creation of a wide range of alternative scenarios, of which Heinsohn' s is but one. Sweeney goes on to produce an impressively researched account of events in Assyria, Palestine and Egypt during the era of the l8th-20th Egyptian dynasties but there is unfortunately a potential catch in his arguments: he principally seeks to date individuals some 200yrs later than most SIS members would currently accept ...
7. The Throne of David [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... most of whom do not know how to read or write, or even, for the most part, to tell their right hand from their left. Yet he is a British-made king with a British supplied treasury and a British-made army. He is the chief of all the marionettes manipulated by Great Britain in the Middle East. The British tried to pull Transjordan, as another of their yes men, into the United Nations, but the membership was refused.*** King Abdullah dreams of a Greater Syria, but the Syrians do not want him as king. He dreams a dream of returning to Mecca, but Ibn Saud is still there. The first step toward these two achievements is the throne of Jerusalem, and he dreams of this throne. Launching his war against the Jews of Palestine, he has offered to accept them as his citizens, promising to ? protect ? them. Lawrence of Arabia in his book ? The Seven Pillars of Wisdom,? gives a picture of Abdullah with his ? fits of arbitrariness,? exercising a ? ...
8. When the House of Akhnaton Died Out [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... this glorious dynasty. In Oedipus and Akhnaton I undertook the task of reviving the pageant of this era and of illuminating the personal fate of its heroes. I showed also how the tragic fate of the house of Akhnaton gave rise to a legendary cycle that reached to the shores of Greece, took hold of the imagination of generations of poets, and survived in its legendary form till our own days. (1) Paintings on a wooden chest found in the tomb of Tutankhamen show the young king in war against the Ethiopians and Syrians. It appears that in the fraternal war his elder brother Smenkhkare, deprived of his throne, called to his assistance foreign troops; in this war both young princes died. Smenkhkare was buried clandestinely by his sister-spouse, who also placed a song of love, cut into gold foil, at the feet of the dead. His burial was violated by the emissaries of Ay, brother of Queen Tiy, mother of Akhnaton. Ay, assuming the royal power, officiated at the splendid funeral of his protege Tutankhamen. Having reached ...

... participants, because Herodotus speaks only of Typhon's place of burial, not of a battle.THE TEXTS: I Velikovsky (Worlds in Collision, pp. 78-81): [The quoted sentence in Worlds in Collision follows almost three pages of a description of the battle between Zeus and Typhon, quoted from Apollodorus: 'Zeus pelted Typhon at a distance with thunderbolts... 'The Egyptian shore of the Red Sea was called Typhonia (Fn: Strabo, vii, 3, 8). Strabo narrates also that the Arimi (Syrians) were terrified witnesses of the battle of Zeus with Typhon...

[Restituted in full, the passage quoted by Gaposchkin reads as follows: One of the places of the heavenly combat between elementary forces of nature- as narrated by Apollodorus and Strabo- was on the way from Egypt to Syria.
