Theory states that foreign archaeologists, particularly from the Czech Republic, are secretly aiding the Jewish State by undertaking "espionage and counterfeiting of Egyptian history."
Israel is secretly infiltrating foreign archaeological teams in Egypt in a plot to falsify Egyptian history by showing that the Jews built the pyramids, an Egyptian researcher claimed this week.
Amir Gamal of the “Non-Stop Robberies” movement told Egypt’s Elaph newspaper that Israel is attempting to prove Jewish influences on Egypt’s Pharaonic Era by altering Egyptian history in favor of the Jews. According to Gamal, foreign archaeologists, particularly from the Czech Republic, are secretly aiding the Jewish State by undertaking “espionage and counterfeiting of Egyptian history."
Gamal told Elaph that Israel does not send its own Jewish archaeological teams to Egypt, because that would expose its covert plot. Instead, Israel sends missions to Egypt "under the guise of other nationalities," while making sure that the leaders of the foreign archaeological missions are Jewish.
According to Gamal, in addition to claiming that the Jews constructed the pyramids, Israel is also plotting to prove that the Egyptian King Sheshonq I, the founder of the 22nd Dynasty in the middle of the 10th century BCE, was the Biblical King Shishak. Biblical accounts say that Shishak invaded Judah during King Rehoboam’s reign, and took treasures from the the First Temple in Jerusalem. Gamal claims that Israel is seeking to claim that gold and jewelry found at an ancient burial site at Tanis in Egypt are part of Solomon’s treasures.
Gamal claims that among those aiding Israel is a Czech Egyptologist, Miroslav Barta of Charles University in Prague, whose archaeological mission is really a secret Israeli spy network. As evidence for his claims, Gamal told Elaph that Barta met with then Israeli President Shimon Peres in 2003.
Barta is trying to “establish that the Jews had a direct role in the construction of Egyptian civilization,” Gamal said.
This is not the first time that the alleged role of the Jews in ancient Egyptian history has caused controversy in Egypt. Earlier this year, Egyptian journalist Ahmad al-Gamal called on Cairo to sue Israel for the costs of the ten deadly plagues visited on the Egyptians during the time of Moses.
