an interesting nugget from the Torah that many Christians and Jews do not realize is that Abraham supposedly came from Ur of the Chaldees. Ur was in Babylon which is today Tell el-Mukayyar” near the city of Nasiriyah just south of Baghdad in Iraq. If the Torah were correct the “Israelites” would actually be descendants of the Babylonians or in modern terms Iraqis. The Torah actually misses virtually everything that actually happened and the Israelites are actually Canaanites.
