Skip to comments.Bible site where ‘God met Moses’ to be BULLDOZED for 'super city' by Saudi Arabia

Bible scholars have claimed there is evidence that suggests the peak Jabal al-Lawz in the Middle Eastern kingdom is actually Mount Sinai.
The site is a 8,460 foot peak known as the "mountain of almonds", located in north east Saudi Arabia near the border with Jordan.
Moses leads the Israelites to the mountain which is enveloped by fire, smoke and thunder, according to the Book of Exodus in the Bible.
The prophet then ascends Mount Sinai where he convenes with God to receive the Ten Commandments.
Experts from the Doubting Thomas Research Foundation have backed the location of Sinai, and also pointed out the fact it lies right in the footprint of proposed Saudi mega city Neom.
Neom is a project proposed by Riyadh that would cover 10,200 square miles - 33 times the size of New York - and would end up covering the suspected Holy site from the Bible.
Security analyst Ryan Mauro and the Doubting Thomas Research Foundation released a documentary with detailing their evidence of Sinai in Saudi Arabia.
It is claimed there is proof of the Israelites encampment at the foot of the mountain, which also has a blackened peak as if it was set on fire.
Historians and Biblical scholars remained divided on the location of the real Sinai in the Middle East.
However, the researchers and explorers fear its location could never be found if the Neom project bulldozes the area.
In the documentary titled Finding The Mountain of Moses: The Real Mount Sinai in Saudia Arabia, they lay out their case for Sinai and highlight the risk posed by Neom.
Mauro said: The Saudis are constructing a super city that is planned to be 33 times the size of New York.

33 times the size of New York.
Have they lost their minds?
They would do this on purpose?
And the cost of bulldozing a mountain? Ridiculous.
Well if want to build a city that no one will live in (Unless ordered to!) that has no accompanying industry to support it its their money , their business.
Worked well for China! -— Ha!
That should really help their current balance of payments problem!
Hell yes they would, but even talk about removing the mosque where they worship their devil god on the temple mount and the entire western world would swoon with the vapors.
“33 times the size of New York”
They don’t even remotely have the population for that.
Must be a substantial water source nearby.
Mt. Sinai (Chorev in the Torah) is in...SINAI! Not Arabia, you camel jockeying dimwits.
NYC is relatively small in square miles, but vertically occupied to the nth degree.
Oh, yeah...Red Sea, desalinated.
author seems geographically challenged.
That’s debatable. There was a documentary about the site in SA and a comparison with what has been commercially sold as Mt Sinai on the peninsula. It was pretty convincing that the SA site was probably it. Look up the ‘Mountain of Fire’ documentary.
I’m sure the new city will contain lots of courtyards where supposedly adulterous women can be stoned to death. /sarc
The place is unrelated to the Biblical Mt. Sinai.
Three thousand years of Christian, Jewish and other local traditions were somehow wrong? Really?
Debunked years ago:
Moses met God before Sinai. Sinai is where he got the 10 commandments. That was a second date. The first date is where he was told to get the Jews out of Egypt.
That way every single muslem on the planet would have a safe and secure place to live and not be offended by any infidels.
With the History Channel as a sponsor, a Mt. Sinai theme park at Jebel al Lawz could still pack in a crowd. Naturally it would be important to mark off areas of "archaeological" significance (and there would still be plenty of archaeologists eager to prove this is the actual site of the burning bush).
