The "Black Israelites"!!

The term of "Black Israelites" has been in the US news media in the last few days. Who are they? As many things throughout the world, answers are generally found at the Source - Egypt!
Here is an excerpt from Chapter 4 : Moses and Akhenaton from my book : The Ancient Egyptian Roots of Christianity.
[According to the Bible, the biblical Moses escaped to Sinai after he killed an Egyptian]

According to the Talmud, when Moses was 18, he fled Egypt after killing an Egyptian. He then became a soldier and fought on the side of the King of Ethiopia. After the King won, Moses became very popular. As a result, when the king died, Moses was appointed as their new king.

The Talmud tells us that (like Akhenaton) the legitimacy of Moses as King stirred up the society. As a result, the Talmud account says, that even though the people loved and wanted him, Moses resigned voluntarily, and departed from their land. The people of Ethiopia bestowed great honors upon him.

There are many similarities between The Talmud story of Moses and the Akhenaton story at Amarna:

1. Moses was elevated to the post of king for some time before going to Sinai. Akhenaton likewise.

2. The Talmud reference to Ethiopia, which is described as being a city, was mistaken for the Amarna location. It is also possible that Ethiopia was mistaken for utopia.

The account of the reign of Moses in the Talmud indicates that he resigned his post, but did not die at that time. The logical conclusion is that he died and was buried outside Egypt proper—in the Egyptian outpost at Moab—as shown next.
