How Septuagint highjacked the Geography of Egypt?

"And there you have it: The “translation” of what is clearly a proper noun, Mtzrim, a name that was not very well-known at the time, to Aigypto, a very well-known name that was recognized by every child and adult in the East and the West of the globe. This is the land of Egypt as it is pronounced in English and al-Qibt as it is known - or should be referred to - in Arabic. Here is the English translation of that same passage:

And he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran (Pharan), and his mother took for him a wife from the land of Egypt. (Genesis – 21:21).

And so it was the famous land of Egypt and its great civilization, that were hijacked by a pack of Ptolemic Jewish priests, who wrote a book with their own hands and called it “the Holy Bible”. No sooner had the name Mtzrim been replaced with Aegypto, that the entire culture of the Nile Country became a heritage owned by the Children of Israel, and a theater for the events surrounding Mūsa (P) and Far‘awn.

Try to visualize the fame and renown that was gifted to the Ptolemaic Dynasty when their land was imagined, by the whole world, as the theater of the “Holy” events surrounding the Children of Israel! It was all perpetrated for the mutual benefit of the Greeks and the Jewish priests whom they commissioned to translate the original text.

As for the name Mtzrim / Msrim, which appears in the original Aramaic text, does not necessarily correspond with the Arabic term Misr which appears in the Qur’ān. This is because the Qur’ān is a radically Arabic document, and is independent in its usage of terms from the previous scriptures. It is enough to understand that the term Mtzrim / Msrim designates the tribal identity of a clan that lived in the same region or territory as the ancient Israelite."

Thank you for the information you have provided. One needs to thoroughly look over it.
