David Rohl on the Hebrews

There are many other Semites in Egypt (which we call for argument’s sake – Hebrews). Everybody thinks Hebrews were Israelites, Israelites were Hebrews but not all Hebrews were Israelites. The word Hebrew is equivalent to the word gypsy. Israelites are specifically descended from Jacob. You find the term Hebrew used in the Bible as a pejorative, the enemies of Israel. The actual Israelites don’t call themselves Hebrews.
