IM NIN'ALU's BOOK of ORIGINS
Rabbi Shalom Shabazi
A tribute to the memory of Ofra Haza,
the most beautiful voice of all times,
the brightest shining star of Israel,
who on 17 Adar I 5760 passed through the gates of Heaven.
This site regards to the origin of the peoples beginning with the ancient cultures and civilizations, and of the People of Israel and her uniqueness among the nations - "Goyim" -, taking account of the most ancient genealogies and the peoples that trace back their origins to them, as well as their appearance and disappearance in history.
Many of the facts exposed in this site are based on biblical sources, supported by archaeological proofs. The science may not duly consider them but I would like to point out that, whenever scientific research has been done with the purpose of denying what the Bible says, they have always confirmed the biblical truth.
The author of this site upholds:
The legitimate right of all Jews to live in their homeland, Eretz Yisrael, and to possess the whole territory, as it is shown in the map
The exclusive right of the People of Israel to possess the whole city of Yerushalayim.
In Bereshyit (Genesis), chapter 10, we find the list of Noach's offspring, from whom all peoples come. It is evident that there are not all names included in such list, as it is not an exhaustive analysis on ethnic origins of all peoples, but only those that were related in any way to Israelites - that is why we have a detailed information about Semitic peoples and few about Yaphetic ones. What is interesting to notice is that such list is arranged in a way that we can classify all peoples in a way that is very evident in this times of "globalization":
1. peoples of the North (Yaphetic)
2. peoples of the South (Hamitic)
3. Semitic peoples, in the middle
Such classification goes beyond the traditional thought that Yephet referred to Indo-Europeans and Ham to Africans, as it would not be thoroughly correct.
This research intends also to outline the evolution of Semitic peoples since their reduced original land to their expansion and subsequent "Semitization" of surrounding peoples that originally belonged to the Southern (Hamitic) stock.
