Is it coincidence that the alleged Hyksos city is named Avaris. And did the namers intend to capture the nature of the city's inhabitants with the term. The Jews in their current land grab have now begun to link their Exodus to that of the Hyksos, one supposes, in an effort to legitimize some future claim to Egyptian territory; Josephus must be rolling over in his grave, however, this turn of events should be a revelation to some non-Semite protectionists of Semitic views, if they are able to see the shared word/language root of both Avaris and Avarice.
The more things change the more they remain the same. Was Jacob the prodigal son? Did nature or his lifestyle (non-sedentary, indolent) produce the deleterious effects of the Canaanite drought? Was Jakov's clan Canaanite or Canaanite parasite? Was it compassion or paternal affinity that resulted in Egyptian kindness? How was this kindness repaid? Is it nature or nurture that produces human Avarice? How many times must humanity repeat the same error before we learn? Who are the primary architects of this Global financial collapse? Who is the No.1 supporter of the State of Israel?
Here are some other words which share the same rootage: Avatar, Avestan, Average, (Median) Averse. Also keep in mind that Ahmose came from the South to "avenge" his brothers in the North who were overrun by the Hyksos (Egyptian parasites). Happy Easter!
