Arabia
 

Origin: Unknown. Semitic tribes migrate from Arabia (c. 2500 BC) and squat throughout Mesopotamia.

  • Locals call the Semite squatters Hebrew (from habiru: “they who murder with webs”).

  • Hebrews migrate to Egypt (circa 14th c. BC) but are evicted by the Egyptians (biblical Exodus).

  • Hebrews ousted from Egypt invade Canaan but are halted south of Sidon and pushed back to later Judea.

  • Hebrews are deported form all of Canaan to Babylon, Mesopotamia (biblical Babylonian Exile).

  • Many Babylonian Hebrews (by now, known as Jews) return to Southern Canaan (Judea) (537 BC).
