" Egypt museum changes ‘Israel’ title of a 120-year-old pharaonic artifact " (Al Arabiya English, 15.08.2017)
Quote:
Egypt announced on Monday that they were cancelling the title of “Israel” from a 120-year-old pharaonic artifact and renaming it to “Merneptah’s Victory” instead. ...

... “We had to change the title after the news Following stirred controversy. A committee was formed from the museum where it was confirmed that there was a mistake in the naming of the plaque in question. Last week, the name was changed to Merenptah's victory,” Abdel Razek said.

“The name of Israel engraved on the plate of his Merenptah's victories meant the children of Israel or a tribe that was resident in Canaan or Ashkelon in Palestine,” the museum director clarified. ...

As if they had no other problems ... Rolling Eyes

Greetings, Lutz.
