HAMONGOG ARAB BURIAL SITE
How was Gog pronounced
A key to the mystery of what or who is Gog, might be to know the way that this name was pronounced at the days of Ezekiel, in ancient Hebrew.Gog is written in Hebrew with 3 letters. First is Gimmel with Dagesh, second Holam Male, and third Gimmel with no Dagesh. The Babylonian Jews have the longest tradition of the way of reading the Bible in the synagogues. When they read Gog, it is pronounced Gogh, which sounds in English like Gorr (gh like Arabic for Baghdad).
We can also try another way to see how it was pronounced. On the 7th century the Islamic religion arose in Arabia. In their book they used many Jewish phrases. They probably pronounced it in the way that Jews used to pronounce it back then. Gog is called in the book of Islam: Joj.So we have JOJ and we have GORR. Someone combined the two possible ways, and created the name GEORGE.
But this is a big change from Gog.Another interesting thing is that the name of Gog does appear one more time in the Bible, but in a rare place. In 1 Chronicles (5,1):Sons of Joel: Shmayah his son, Gog his son, Shim'i his son.
COULD THIS STORY BELOW BECOME FULFILLMENT OF THE PROPHECY THAT SAYS THE NAME OF THE PLACE WERE THE FIVE-SIXTH OF THE RUSSIAN-ARAB ARMIES WILL BE BURIED WILL BE NAMED HAMONGOG.
11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamongog.
12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land.
13 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD.
14 And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search.
15 And the passengers that pass through the land, when any seeth a man’s bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamongog.
16 And also the name of the city shall be Hamonah. Thus shall they cleanse the land.
17 And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.
18 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.
19 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.
20 Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD.
21 And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.
22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day and forward.
IF THIS PROPHECY IS COMING TO PASS THE NAME OF THE SETTLEMENTS WILL END UP BEING NAMED HAMONGOG, THE ARABS WILL BE NAMING THEIR OWN DEATHWISH BURIAL PLACE. IF HAMAS DOES NAME IT HAMONGOG WE KNOW THAT THE MARCH TO ISRAEL CAN NOT BE TO FAR BEHIND.
THE 2 PLACES THE ARABS WANT TO RENAME ALREADY HAVE A SLIGHT RING TO HAMONGOG, Kfar Yam - Tripoli (a city in north Lebanon), Morag - Baghdad
Mar. 2, 2007 4:39 - Hamas may rename settlement sites
By KHALED ABU TOAMEH
The Hamas-led Palestinian Authority government is planning to rename the sites of former Jewish settlements in the Gaza Strip after famous Islamic battles and some former Arab cities inside Israel, as well as Arab capitals. The move, which comes on the eve of the formation of a joint Hamas-Fatah coalition, has drawn criticism from Fatah representatives, who say the outgoing government does not have the authority to make such an important decision. A document obtained by The Jerusalem Post shows that Hamas leaders have made plans to rename at least 20 settlements that were evacuated in August 2005. The document, drafted by Palestinian Authority Agriculture Minister Muhammed al-Agha of Hamas, will soon be brought to the Palestinian Legislative Council for approval.
For Morag - read Baghdad, for Elei Sinai - read Acre
Agha said the decision to rename the former settlements reflects our love for the liberated land. He said the names he and his staff chose mostly express Arab dignity and pride. He added that the decision was also an expression of gratitude to all Palestinians who sacrificed their lives to drive Israel out of the Gaza Strip. Fatah officials in the Gaza Strip, however, said they were opposed to Hamas's initiative, pointing out that the Islamic movement did not have the right to make such a decision without consulting with other Palestinian factions. The decision is unacceptable, a senior Fatah operative in the Gaza Strip told the Post. The Hamas government is trying to create new facts on the ground as if they are alone out there. Who gave them the right to take such a crucial decision and how come they didn't consult with anyone else?
Earlier this week, the Ministry of Agriculture fired hundreds of Palestinian guards who were working at the sites of the former settlements. Fatah spokesmen claimed the move was politically motivated and that Hamas was seeking to replace the dismissed workers with Hamas men.

The Hamas settlement-renaming document lists 20 former Jewish settlements and Israeli-controlled areas in the Gaza Strip and suggests they be renamed immediately.
Following are some of the proposed changes:
• Erez - Qana (the south Lebanese village where more than 100 people were killed by Israeli missiles during Operation Grapes of Wrath more than a decade ago)
• Dugit - Badr (a place in Saudi Arabia where a key battle took place between Prophet Muhammad and his rivals. The battle was seen as a turning point in Muhammad's struggle against the Meccan Quraish tribe. The battle has been passed down in Islamic history as a decisive victory attributable to divine intervention or the genius of Muhammad.)
• Netzer Hazani - Hittin (the place where the battle took place in 1187 between the Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem and the forces of the Ayyubid dynasty under the renowned Muslim warrior Saladin. The battle enabled the Muslims to regain control of Jerusalem from the Christians.)
• Neveh Dekalim - Al-Karamah (a village in the lower Jordan Valley that was the site of a battle between the IDF and Fatah. The Arabs describe it as the first Arab victory over Israel after the Six Day War in 1967.)
• Kfar Yam - Tripoli (a city in north Lebanon)
• Morag - Baghdad
• Kfar Darom - Castel
• Bnei Atzmon - Safed
• Nisanit - Nahawand (The Battle of Nahawand (Niharvand) gave the Arabs a final victory over the Persians and ended the Sassanian dynasty that ruled Persia for four centuries.)
• Slav - Damascus
• Elei Sinai - Acre
