BASQUE / HEBREW
language form that originated in the North African area of our most ancient
civilizations has been studied by Nyland (2001). He found that many words used to describe
names of places and things in Hebrew seem to be closely related to the
ancient language, which is being called Saharan. It appears that the Basque language is a
close relative to the original Saharan.
Following is a discussion of this relationship:
It has been suggested by many Basque scholars, such as
Abbé Dominique Lahetjuzan, Abade Erroa and Abbé Diharce de Bidassouet, that
the words and names of the Hebrew language, and those used in the Bible, were
related to Basque. Nyland
(2001) found that the linguists who developed Hebrew, used the first letters
words starting with VCV in their manipulations (see VCV
Formula) However, they also used words starting with CV, especially in
the first syllable of the new word. Hebrew is a consonantal language, just
like Old Egyptian and Arabic, which means that all vowels were removed from
the word. To begin his research, Nyland (2001) chose the central
pillar of Judaism, The
Talmud, for examples because this document had been passed on
to posterity with extreme care:
tala - mudapen
look out - alteration
"Look out for alteration" or "Pass on
This definition makes sense because the Talmud is the summary
of the Oral Law of the Jews and the only way to preserve an oral law
throughout the ages is to make sure that it is passed in unaltered condition.
It has the important advantage that the vowels were preserved in the
memorizing process. The Talmud has two main components: the Mishnah, a book of law (halakhah),
and the Gemarah,
which is the commentary on the Mishnah. The Torah is the Pentateuch or law
contained in the Old Testament.
Gemara (to expand the
ageri - eman - aratz

humbleness - to wake up - congregation
"In humbleness waking up the congregation"
otoitzegin - orain - Ahalguzti
to pray to - always - Almighty
"Always pray to the Almighty"
The vowel-interlocking of the VCV syllables is clearly
maintained in many of these words, proving that this linguistic trick was
already in common use around 600 B.C.
A large number of names and words are associated with
these books, a small sampling follows in no particular order, with their

Nyland (2001) concluded that most
every Hebrew word or name appears to have a built-in hidden sentence in
Basque, usually having a bearing on the original meaning. Many words have
been distorted over time and can no longer be decoded with confidence, but
the majority can be translated, just as was done in the examples above. There
is no doubt that the Hebrew language was constructed by skilled linguists
applying formulaic manipulation to the Saharan/Basque vocabulary, which must
have been the language of the Hebrews as they came from Egypt ca 1,100 bce..
It is written in Genesis 11:7 "Let us confuse their language so they can
no longer understand one another's speech", this was taken as a biblical
command and Hebrew was the product of this "confusion". Genesis
11:9 then tells us that this linguistic work was done in Babylon. Lahetjuzan
and the other early Basque scholars were right after all; Hebrew is most probably manipulated
