Geez, as a good little lib, I figured you'd be pining for the Israelis to be getting reparations from the Egyptians et al, after all their ancestors did enslave themI thought this was cool point. Of course, reparations would be extremely difficult to prove and not because of the distance in time from then to now: there is virtually nothing outside the Bible that indicates that the Jews were ever slaves in Egypt, no matter what Pat Robertson or Charlton Heston may suggest.The reality is that there is no evidence whatsoever that the Jews were ever enslaved in Egypt. Yes, there's the story contained within the bible itself, but that's not a remotely historically admissible source. I'm talking about real proof; archeological evidence, state records and primary sources. Of these, nothing exists.http://www.haaretz.com/jewish-world/the-jewish-thinker/were-...I do think it was a clever idea, though.Pete
