Ancient Stone Wall Discovered in Palestinian East Jerusalem Canaanite Jebusites of Jebus Who First Built Constructed Original City of David Settlement Hill Fort Jerusalem Post Israel Antiquites Authority Ronny Reich University of Haifa Announce Reveal Massive Canaanite Bronze Age Fortification Ancient Wall Led to Stream East Jerusalem Who Owns Holy Land Rightful Heirs Original Owner Tribes Land of Israel Canaan Jebusite not Palestinian Liberation Organization of Bronze Age Jerusalem Political Geography before Moses Exodus Joshua Hebrew Invasion from Plague Drought Devastation Egypt

Here’s some really big news from Jerusalem, an eighty foot section of twenty-five-foot-high canaanite stone walls has been uncovered in east Jerusalem, in a palestinian neighborhood, just outside the old City of David, built seven hundred years before king David’s time by the Jebusites of Canaan.  The massive parallel walls protected a narrow passageway down to Gihon Spring, from the ancient hill fort there (under modern buildings on a nearby hill?) named Jebus, who was a son of Canaan, a son of Ham, son of Noah, known to the canaanites as Uranus (meaning Ur years).

So if anybody in the world could lay rightful claim to Jerusalem, other than the long enduring Hebrews, it would be the Jebusites, certainly not the Palestinians, named after the arch rival Philistines, who never controlled canaanite Jebus (known also as Ur u’ salim), nor thereafter israeli Jerusalem, but who were confined to the Gaza region until they disappeared from the pages of history within a few centuries after the time of David.  The Jebusites ceased to be a recognizable people group after King David took the city of Jebus from them, about four hundred years after the Hebrews led by Joshua had moved into the region circa 1400 B.C., when the climate was changing drastically, and vanished canaanite port cities such as Yarmuta, old Sidon, and Atlit and Akko (among others) succumbed to the sea, the ruins of which are now submerged there off the Levant since the end of the Ice Age.

The newly discovered canaanite wall in east Jerusalem is from circa 1700 B.C., when it rained much more, so I dare say the Gihon stream to which the protective wall led has long since greatly reduced its flow, certainly by David’s time at 1000  B.C., I will have to look more into it, because many canaanite ruins are also found in the Negev Desert, to the south, which flowed with artesian streams watering lush pastures when those cannanite city-states thrived there in what now is a desert wasteland (except for the Israeli’s ingeneous hydrological engineering for farming).

Unless the progeny of the Jebusites (or the Canaanites in general) can identifiy themselves, it’s obvious that Jerusalem belongs to the Jews, as the Bible says, but who is a Canaanite?  They traveled by sea extensively, having helped found Atlantis and the two submerged cities, Menouthis (Menestheo/Menes) and Heraklion (cushite Nimrod), now submerged on the shallow seafloor off Alexandria, so their history is rich, but much of it now lost beneath the sea, their ancient sea navigating embodied in the dimensions of the Great Pyramid of Giza, which was surveyed by nautical mile mapping numbers, from the chaldean sexagesimal system, so I hope you peruse it, article #2 at
