History of Israel - David and Solomon - LexiLine Journal 298

In an August 13, 2004 Forward Newspaper Online article at http://www.forward.com/articles/5132/ by David Hazony entitled "Digging Up the Bible", the head of the Tel Aviv University school of archaeology, Israel Finkelstein, is quoted as saying that King David and King Solomon were not kings at all but only poor hill-country chieftains and that the fabled Jerusalem was a poor village. With historical academic incompetents like this in their midst, Israel needs no enemies.

As can be read in the pages of Lexiline,

King David was Sethos I of Egypt and King Solomon was Ramses II.

What Finkelstein is quoted as saying is pure nonsense - a theory based on nothing.
