In re: [Biblical Paths] Review: Philip Davies, ‘When Memory Meets the Past: Archaeology and Amnesia’


In response to Steven Smuts article entitled Review: Philip Davies, ‘When Memory Meets the Past: Archaeology and Amnesia’, I wrote:

I have been looking at 9/11 and the associated mythology because I am interested in the collision of Arab-Islamic and Jewish-Zionist transnational politics.

While no one can question a chronicle the describes how the plane struck the WTC on 9/11 (I even watched the second plane strike on CNN as it happened), most of the historiography that attempts to detail what al-Qa`ida is and how it carried out the attack is questionable factually and driven by extremely tendentious politics.

See Collision: Jewish-Zionist, Arab-Islamic Transnational Politics.

Biblical minimalists may be much too conservative in their assumption that the process of fabricating an imaginary Biblical Israel required centuries.
