The Devil of the Qur'an is named لَسَ  "Iblīs."  Iblis was a "jinn," a spirit being, who went bad.  JINN is like GENIE, which is from  גאון GA’OAN ( GENIus).    The name Iblis infers a causer of “despair,"  but this B-L holdover from pre-Islamic paganism recalls בלע  BaL[A]h, destruction   (II Samuel 17:16).

Iblis is probably not merely another Lucifer, a Satanic fallen angel.  But is appears that Iblis and Satan may have a common ancestor.  Shiva is the Destroyer-god of Hindu.  Several religions break from monotheism by having a Destroyer, an Evil deity who defies the Good deity.  Faiths of Dualism have deities of Good and Evil, because it requires subtle, nuanced thinking to see all things, even perceived “evil,” as coming from one God.  Most simple “believers” believe in a Creator who is a benign puppet-master.  So, anything “evil” must be the work of a rival Deity of Evil.  Once there is demonization  of God, it is easy for some Muslims to demonize dogs and Jews.

No slight is intended by lumping Jews and dogs in the same phrase. The Hebrew Bible is pro-canine, and  כלב  KeLeBH (canine) echos Caleb, the loyal scout of Moses.  Only ישראל  YiSRaEL (Israel the people) remained loyal to a true monotheism which is ישר  YaShaR (straight) to God.

Of course there are many other strong reasons why two terrorists from East Jerusalem carried out a bloody massacre in a “synagogue of Satan” on 11/18/14, and why today’s Philistinians (    פלשתים PaLiSHTeeyM  means invaders), yesterdays Crusaders, today’s boycotts, EU appeasers, etc. hate Israel, the  Hebrew Bible, its Author and practitioners.  But a theological element is now added to the discussion. ...

In Genesis 18:27 Abraham apologizes to the Eternal for bargaining with Him, calling himself mere עפר    [A]hPHahR (ו  V’) אפר  AyPHeR, “dust and ashes.” 

 The sub-root of these similar words is the פ-ר    Pey-Resh of   פרור  PaROOR (crumb, fragment)  and פור PWR, to crush or PuLVerize into  PoWder.

OK, you get it how both DUST and ASHES are tiny particles,  and how, once again, Edenics shows that Biblical Hebrew is the engineered Music of  Meaning.   But  w h y  is  עפר    [A]hPHahR (dust) spelled with an Ayin, and  אפר  AyPHeR  (ashes) spelled with an Aleph?

The אפ Aleph-Phey sub-root means nostrils, nose (Genesis 2:7);  while the  ע-פ Ayin-Phey  sub-root means to fly (Genesis 1:20 – see the “AVIATE” entry in the E-Word).   Ashes are burnt particles that mostly impact our sense of smell, while dust is flying particles.

God is in the details.

SUMER        SHiN[A]hR       Shin-Noon-Ayin-Resh

(T)SEM-UKH______שנער_____[SH-N-R à SMR]

ROOTS:   SUMER is an ancient city-state near the later Babylon.  SUMERIAN is their long-dead but important language, because it is, somehow, NOT Semitic.  As the language was recently excavated and documented, there was a group of Great-White-Hope historical linguists that, in vain, tried to claim Sumerian as an Indo-European language that could compete with antiquty with the Semitic tongues of the Near East. 

  שנער  SHiN[A]hR, Shinar (Genesis 11:2) is the site of the “Tower of Babel”, referencing the nearby location of Babylon.  Names of places should be a separate reference book, but Sumer/Shinar (only a nasal shift away) deserves the exception.  

Could Sumerian, then, be the Edenic language, since the other like-speaking groups banded tother and emigrated to new homelands for their new (proto) languages?  No, see the example below.  The tyrant-king Nimrod also suddenly spoke a neuro-liguistic spinoff of everyone’s original Edenic, but he and his group of Sumerian speakers got to stay put in Sumer. 

According to tradition (Deuteronomy 32:8, Genesis 46:27, Numbers 33:9) there were seventy instant varieties of the language of Eden (which devolved into our 6000 “languages” of today.)

The 13 Indo-European language families, the 8 African and 3 Native American ones (Joseph Greenberg), added to other regions and isolates, does make the 70 figure possible.  Sumerian is classified as an isolate language, despite some similar vocabulary with Akkadian (dead, Afro-Asiatic … the Politically Correct, Bible-hating replacement of the term Hamito-Semitic.)   For how Shem and Ever taught Ivrit, Pre-Hebrew or Edenic to a Chaldean named Abram and for a more detailed treatment of the Shinar/Sumer scenario, see the chapter in  “The Origin of Speeches” (Amazon or LightcatherBooks).

BRANCHES: Example #1:  Sumerian alam,   dream <  Edenic  חלום [K]HaLOAM (dream)  [DORM entry]

  And why is alam the later corruption of Edenic,  rather the earlier, more correct version

  of the Hebrew חלום  [K]HaLOAM?   Because alam is meaningless.   חלון [K]HaLOAN is a

 window, and a dream is the window of the subconscious.  A window is aחלל   [K]HaLaL, space (related to  חר  [K]HoaR, hole)  in a wall.   Dropping the Edenic  ח  Het/[K]HeT loses the Edenic sense of the word.  See “HOLLOW.”

Example #2:  bad  open  <  S-B   S-D  פתח PaTa[K]H, to open [PATIO]

No languages have a B-D root of “opening,” so Sumerian appears to have descended from the alien giants popular among Sumer fans.  But bad is a bilabial-shift (S-B)  and  dental shift  (S-D) of a wide global family of P-T “opening”  words documented in the “PATIO” entry of the E-Word Digital Dictionary.

There are dozens more such examples in our Sumerian list.

SUKKOT, the festival of Love Shacks, has got you COVERED

Whats up with rejoicing in a temporary booth, instead of your permanent home, your comfort zone? That permanent home, our life in This World, is an illusion. We are often in denial, but we are only truly happy if we can rejoice in our 7 temporary days (our 70 years on Earth), knowing that we are under the Eternal's protective roof.

SHACK    $OOKaH     Sin-Vav-Kahf-Hey
ROOTS: The dictionaries are not sure where SHACK (crude cabin, shanty) came from, but they offer "said to be a contraction of Mexican jacal, from Aztec xacalli (wooden hut)."
 שך SoaKH (which may be read SHoaKH) is a booth, pavilion or "tabernacle" in Lamentations 2:6. SoaKH is a booth (Psalms 27:5), and the more common סכה   SOOKaH is a booth or tabernacle. Leviticus 23:42 charges Israelites to "live in booths" for seven days on the Festival of Booths or Tabernacles.   סך $oaKH is a hut or tent (Psalms 27:5). Edenic has KS and SK CASINGS and SACKS – see “SACK” and “ENCASE.” Reversing Samekh-Khaf/$-KH,  כסה KHa$aH means covering and concealing.

BRANCHES:     סך $oaKH can also mean a (concealing) thicket. סכך  $aKHAKH is to screen or cover.  It was spelled with a  ש Shin in Exodus 33.22.  Theש-כ   Sin-Khaf  is a temporary shelter from the elements, likeסוכה   $OOKaH and SHACK.  See "ENSCONCE" and "SCENE" for extensions of these SK cover-shelter-housing terms; see "HOUSE" for KS reversals of same. 

At “HOUSE” those related words, like  ח-ס Het-Samekh words of protection and refuge, are also fricatives with (softer) gutturals.  Reversing the S-K of our Edenic etymons produces Spanish casa (house). Italian casa (house) gave English the CASINO.   

 It occurred to  Kenneth H. Ryesky that KIOSK  (a small commercial booth) may be from the same K-S, S-K construction as theסכה   SUKKAH (holiday tabernacle or booth). Webster's has Turkish kösk coming from Persian kushk (portico) -- which is a protective porch. 
The thatching of a hut, entangling or covering of סכך $iKHaKH became 
sākak (to weave together, screen, cover) in Arabic. This gave rise to Arabic sakka (to close up, coin, mint), which gave English SEQUIN.

TUM(ULT)   TeHOAM    Tahf-Hey-Vav-Mem
T’HOME___________תהום___________[ TM]
ROOTS:  TUMULT is initially from Latin  tumultus (commotion).  The American Heritage Dictionary (AHD) has no  Indo-European (IE) “root,” so it is likely from a Semitic TM root meaning something like “chaos.”

תהום TeHOAM is rendered “abyss, deep sea, primeval ocean” by E.D. Klein. In it’s TUMULTUOUS context in Genesis 1:2 , the  תהום TeHOAM is  certainly part of the Timat “unformed and void” that is to become orderly with the commands of a Creator.

In Babylonian and other ancient Semitic creation myth the goddess behind creation is TIÂMAT,
the monstrous personification of the sea (as in the definition of  תהום TeHOAM above).
Hebrew  תהום TeHOAM is an established  cognate of Akkadian tamtu and Ugaritic thmt, and  Sumerian TIÂMAT legend  goes back to Ebla. 

Designed TM antonyms of this unformed chaos before the Creation of time are תם  TahM (finished) and תם   ToaM (complete, perfect).  See “TIME.”

BRANCHES: If   תהום TeHOAM is related to מהומה MeHOOMaH (tumult, noisy confusion – Deuteronomy 7:23), then there is an HM element of HUMMING to consider.

 HUM is dismissed as echoic, but הום  HOOM (confounding confusion — also Deuteronomy 7:23) suggests more than HUM as “low, wordless droning.”  

HUMMINGBIRDS make no noise. They, and busy marketplaces, HUM with activity. Arabic hāma means “frantic.”  Arabic tihāmah means “depth, abyss, sea.” 

The roiling, chaotic, unformed, even monstrous primeval sea or  תהום TeHOAM must have been humming with tumult.

Yiddish  tumlen, to make a racket, is the given source of TUMMLER (entertainment director who incites guests). German Tumult means a riot and (a noisy) uproar; German tummel is about hurrying and romping, but not with an emphasis on noise.
