Arab or Oreb

Eliyah the Tishabite and the Arabs who fed him

עֹרֵב ʻôrêb, Arab(A>E>I>O>U>W) = raven.

​1 Kings 17:6

And the ravens (Arabs)  brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the brook.

The flesh being 🍖 meat: In the Ketubim is written that the raven is not kosher to eat. Eating from the mouth of a raven? One must come to the conclusion that antisemitic scribes may have altered the words because of hatred towards the Arabs which exists even today in our own culture. 

The antisemitic  song  Ahab the Arab by Ray Stevens 

The absolute false lyrics have promted the white supremacist pride against the Arabs and all of the Semitic cultures.

King Ahab was king of Israel

1 Kings 20:2

And he sent messengers to ➡Ahab king of Israel ⬅into the city, and said unto him, Thus saith Benhadad,

1 Kings 20:13

And, behold, there came a prophet unto ▶Ahab king of Israel◀, saying, Thus saith the LORD, Hast thou seen all this great multitude? behold, I will deliver it into thine hand this day; and thou shalt know that I am the LORD.

⬛   Even today the devout Arabs eat only 2 times a day morning and evening according to their teachings.

​1 Kings 17:6

And the ravens (Arabs)  brought him Bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the brook.

  1. Yes, until I watched Ray Stevens video recently and listened to the lyrics I also caught his racist comedy of saying “chitlins” and “bones in the nose” that substantiates his ignorance of Ahab, despite his wickedness was annointed King of Israel, was a Semitic Arab, and reigned over Israel, and even rode a camel as well as other ethnocentric oppositions that Hellenistic Judaism and Christianity has distorted the worldview of innocent believers

  2. Thanks, I would have never identified that raven with Arab. I had always thought of the first bird released from Noah’s ark.

    With Ray Stevens song: In fairness it was released in 1962. That is the same year the epic historical drama Lawrence of Arabia was released. That movie won many awards and was a huge success.I suspect the song is poking fun at that movie rather than being an anti-Semitic commentary.


    1. No, we disagree, speaking as the Rebbetzen of an Iranian Rabbi, and being a black Hebrew Arabian woman who grew up in the fundamentalist Bible Belt, I having grown up hearing racist townsfolk singing that song can believe that it’s release in the sixties would back the opposition of blacks and minorities in the south during the civil rights movement and why the KKK and Nazi movement identified as Greco Roman sympathizers against any Semitic people’s. Many American Christians aren’t aware the blacks in America are both Semitic and Israelites.
