A short history of Natural Syria

(Current Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, Jordan and part of Iraq)

Natural Syria – Part 5

The Canaanites:

Who does not know the Story of the Alphabets, the greatest achievement in the History of Mankind? We owe it to the Canaanites. The Canaanites who inhabited the Shores of the Amoro Sea (The Mediterranean) extending from the Northern West Shores of Syria to the Southern Shores of what is Known in Modern History to be Palestine 3000 BC.

Their Presence by the Sea Side had oriented their development towards the Exploration of the Sea. Great People, who had left an incredible impact on the advancement of social Life throughout History.
The Canaanites who were named as the Phoenicians (mainly the City-States) of Tyre, Sidon, Beirut, Byblos…) by the Greeks were able to extend the Natural Life cycle of Natural Syria to Cyprus, dominating the Seas of the Amoro, and beyond.
Professional Traders with a superb Creative Mind, well talented with innovative Ideas such as ship Design and construction, documented communication, Art, Mythology and many more which we shall see in following posts.
The Canaanites established prominent City-Kingdoms that had a great impact on the Greek and Roman Empires, such as TyreByblosUgaritBeyrout (The present capital of the State of Lebanon), The Great Sun City (Baalbek) which started as a Canaanite shrine and developed later into a Big City Kingdom imposing itself on all Conquerors like Romans and Arabs and others.
Their Sea travels had planted the seeds of Civilization in more than one Continent, Africa (North and South), Europe (Named after a Canaanite Princess), and their archaeological traces lead to America which is believed that the Inca and Maya Civilization was born out of the Canaanite’s Ritual Womb.

The Arameians:

The Aramites were known to have appeared on the Scene of History as Nomads, Wondering in South central and western Syria between 1600 – 1500 BC. They maintained a low profile until the Amorite Empire Weakened around 1500 BC, where they started taking over Authority by playing the Natural Role of a new born Civilization.

Developing what they captured from existing ones embedding their Character in the new established production.
Their Major role and most effective one was the Aramite Language which became the Mother Tongue of almost every Language we use today. Their Language dominated Syria for a long time until the appearance of Jesus Christ, who communicated with people using Aramite.
It is also notable that the Arabic language, and likewise Hebrew and Latin were derived and developed from the Aramite Language.

The Amonites:

To the East of the Jordan River, The AmoniteMo’abAdoum and Median City Kingdoms’ Traces were found in addition to many others.

The Most Prominent city of their findings that survived different Natural and Political Changes is their Capital Rubbah – (Amman– The Capital of the Jordanian Kingdom today).
Extending back to 6000 BC, The Amonites built Stone Shrines and Monuments that still stand witness to their early Mythology, in the mountainous surroundings of Present Amman.

The Nabatians:

8000 BC, North of the Hejaz Region, (Arabia Desert), an Ethnic Group started their journey in the course of history as Nomads. Maintaining survival until 600 BC when they migrated towards North East of Sinai and east of the Jordan River. They were the Nabatians (ANBAT).

Their innovative and peaceful character can be observed through the Great cities they left as witness to such Nature. Their cities such as Athru’ – Jarash – Karak – Shobak – Eillat – Mada’en and others were scattered on a vast area extending from the South West to the South East of Natural Syria.
The Nabatians’ Capital was (Sala’) which was later called by the Greeks PETRA, meaning the Rock, and who doesn’t know the wonderfully carved city in the Rocky Mountains south Central of Syria.
Their Political state expanded to Reach the Bequaa’ Valley known as the Syrian Cavity due to the extension of fertile Planes between the Western and Eastern Mountain Series of Mount Lebanon.
The Nabatians, an additional Ethnic thread in the Syrian Nation Fabric.

At this point, a general and brief introduction to the Syrian Ethnic elements would have been delivered so far leading to a further phase in this series,

The Syrian Civilization Achievements.
