by Timothy Chilman email: timothychilman@yahoo.com As the 19th century commenced, Britain was embroiled in a war with France where the very survival of the nation was at stake.

What Exodus?

What Exodus?

Was the story of the Exodus a load of bullshit?

The story is that many Jews – Israelites – moved to...
