Important Update Notice on 24 July 2018: I have updated my Abyssinian Hypothesis after discovering the that single-hump camel (The dromedary) was unknown in Arabia, Aram, Assyria, and Kemet before 950 BC, while in abundance in the land of Punt.
This led to make the following major changes:
1- The proposed origin of Israelite from being Arabic-speaking Arab Yemenis to Ge’ez-speaking African Puntite;
2- Rename the Abyssinian Hypothesis to the Ge’ez Puntite Hypothesis;
3- The Turkic Mongolian colonizers and rulers of Neo-Babylonia invited elders from the House of Israel to Babylonia in around 580 BC in what is called the Babylonian Exile to help the create Judaism and colonize Aramaic land in 530 BC;
4- The Hebrew Language and the Hebrew Israelite are products of admixture between Ge’ez Israelite, Turkic Mongolian Persians, and colonized Aramaic. They existed only after 530 C; and
5- The Lost Sheep of the House of Israel are those Israelite who left the land of Punt and decided to collaborate with Turkic Mongolians to invent Judaism and colonize Aramaic lands; and turned into Hebrew Israelite.
For more details on the Ge’ez Puntite Hypothesis read the following three articles:
1- How Persians Cooked a Cult and Called it Judaism Part 1
2- The Turkic Mongolian-African Israelite Joint-ventures
3- Jesus Pointing to “The Lost Sheep of the house of Israel” and “the Gentiles”

The word “Arab” most probable originated in Mesopotamia to describe nomads, West, and/or wandering people. No archeological, linguistic, or any logical evidences were found to prove that Abraham was really born and lived in Mesopotamia.
It is more likely that Abraham and his two sons Ishmael and Isaac were all Arabs and they lived in Yemen. Therefore, the sons of Jacob (Israel), son of Issac, who are the Israelites are Arabs too.
The Ishmaelites, the Israelites, and the Idomite are all branches of Arabs, not just the Ishmaelites only.
Hager’s original name was “Hagr” (means home/country in Ge’ez). She was from Abyssinia, most probably a dark free woman.
Her marriage to Abraham was arranged by an Abyssinian king and could be his daughter. The Abyssinian king admired the faith and character of Abraham and asked him to marry an Abyssinian woman so as to have children and relate to him.
Notice at that time there were no camels or horses (they were not yet brought or domesticated). Single hump camels were brought by Ethiopians from East Africa later.
People in Arabia and Levant only used donkeys if they could afford it, and their movements were very limited and avoid desert. They could not travel too far in short time as the Biblical tales say. Therefore, Abraham entering Egypt on a camel is clearly a false tale.
The geography of the Hebrew Bible describes Yemen, Asir region, Abyssinia, and Western Arabia only. There are no resemblance or evidences of Abraham and Israelite in Mesopotamia or Egypt at all.
