You know, who you are. But for the faithful, there is proof and evidence.

Hi Peewee, I've been meaning to comment on this for days... but you know how I hate obtaining information by watching videos, rather than reading, - so, I finally watched the video.

I've had the Larry Williams book "The Mountain of Moses, The Discovery of Mount Sinai" (1990) for twenty five years. Your video doesn't mention it, but one of the modern difficulties in accessing this site is that the Saudi government has installed anti-aircraft missile sites in this region because it is the highest peak in the entire NW Saudi Arabian region... turning it into a heavily fenced in and guarded military site, a military base that doesn’t allow access to the very top.

It is a mountain located in northwest Saudi Arabia, near the Jordanian border, above the Gulf of Aqaba at 2,580 metres (8,460 feet) above sea level. Jebel Al-Lawz is visible from many places but there is only one road that leads to the top.

The book is about the unsanctioned trip to Saudi Arabia of Larry Williams, a commodity trader and part time treasure hunter, and Robert Cornuke, a former police officer and SWAT team member), and their search at the area the Saudi desert Bedouins have for centuries called "Jebel al-Lawz."

Jebel Al-Lawz is in the ancient land of Madyan (the Biblical Midian) where the Prophet Moses lived for ten years with his father-in-law the Prophet Shu'ayb and where he brought his people that fled Egypt. Some consider Jebel Al-Lawz to be the real Mount Sinai where Moses had a mythical experience with God, as mentioned in the Qur'an.

Midian is a geographical place mentioned in the Hebrew Bible and Qur'an. William G. Dever states that biblical Midian was in the "northwest Arabian Peninsula, on the east shore of the Gulf of Aqaba on the Red Sea", an area which he notes was "never extensively settled until the 8th–7th century B.C."

According to the Book of Genesis, the Midianites were the descendants of Midian, who was a son of Abraham and his wife Keturah: "Abraham took a wife, and her name was Keturah. And she bare him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah."

Various classical and historical sources place Midian east of the Gulf of Aqaba, in what is now the northwest part of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. These sources include: 1st century A.D. - Jewish historian Josephus; 2nd century A.D. - Greek geographer Ptolemy; 3rd century A.D. - church historian Origin; 4th century A.D. - theologian St. Jerome; and Medieval Arab historians/geographers.

That is all I've got on it at the moment.
