Possibly They AreThe Amorites
by: Mayang

I don't believe the teachings of Charles Darwin. I think the Malaysians are the Amorites Canaanites traveled to Iraq and transferred living in Iraq, and their descendants possibly traveled to Pakistan, to Bangladesh, to Malaysia, and transferred living in Malaysia.

I think they traveled by land because they are "Land People". And the houses of pioneers in Malaysia are Male Supremacy Architecture, so the pioneers there possibly descendants of Amorites, the Land People and of Male Supremacy belief/cult.

The History of the Amorites
by: Anonymous

Egyptian king Amenemhet III 1685-1640 B.C. had trade with Amorite/Babylon king Ammi-ditanna 1683-1647 B.C.

Egyptian king Amenemhet III also traded with Byblos and the Minoans on the island of Crete.

Khyan also had trade with Babylon, Byblos and with the Minoans on the island of Crete.

Maybe the Hyksos/Canaanite/Amorite king Khyan was actually a Canaanite chieftain who served under Amenemhet III.

It was Amenemhet III's father Senusret III who had invaded and annexed Canaan. The massive immigration of Amorites into Canaan occurred during Senusret III's reign.

It was Amorite/Hyksos Apepi I who fought Ahmose father and brother and Apepi II who fought Ahmose and was driven out of Egypt.

The mystery surrounding the end of the 12th dynasty may have been solved.

Amorite Power - 400 years
by: Lujack Skylark

1710-1684 B.C. Amorite king Abi-Eshuh is attacked by Elamite king Kuter-Nahunte, who attacks Babylon for the destruction Amorite king Hammurabi had brought against Larsa's king Rim-Sin's government. Amorite priests warn of impending danger, since Kuter steals the Amorite fertility goddess Nanaja.

Genesis 41:57 - Global famine is 1704-1697 B.C.

1683-1647 B.C. Amorite king Ammi-ditana reigns over Babylon. Merchants charge farmers 33% payment on loans in the form of cash crops, or 20% payment in silver. Many farmers go broke and sold themselves into slavery. Pharaoh Amenemhet III (1685-1640 B.C.) completes Bahr Yousef (Joseph's canal) using Semitic slaves from Babylon; and Linear A language on the island of Crete is Semitic in origin.

1646-1626 B.C. Amorite king Ammi-saduqa passes a law requiring all merchants to forgive all debts the Babylonian citizens owe. Any merchant who ignored his order was executed. This ends the slave trade to Crete and Egypt. Ammi-saduqa worshiped the moon, stars and planet Venus.

Egyptian king Ahmose (1628-1603 B.C.) worshiped the moon god Iah.
Amenhotep I (1603-1582 B.C.) charted the stars in an attempt to develop a new calender.

1625-1595 B.C. Amorite king Samsu-ditana reigns peacefully at Babylon. Hittite king Mursilas army then sacks Babylon in 1595 B.C. Amorite control over Babylon ends.

1595-1495 B.C. The Amorites are powerful in Syria and northern Canaan (Lebanon).

1582-1495 B.C. Thutmose I-III. Both Thutmose I and Thutmose III war against the Amorites in Syria. Thutmose III goes to war 17 times in Asia.

Thutmose III is the pharaoh of the Exodus. He dies in 1495 B.C. not 1434 B.C. Amenhotep II, Thutmose IV, Amenhotep III and Akenaton all collect tribute from the Amorites, showing us the 400 years of Amorite power has been broken.
