Ancient History

A curious article at HNN. I suppose this is just one of many ways to misuse history, but the gratuitous swipes at Arafat are enjoyable.
There is no indication that Arafat actually knew the term “Canaan” had been archaeologically verified but apparently in this instance, unlike with the Solomonic Temple, Arafat was willing to accept the biblical account as accurate.
