Paulk, Exodus 15:27 "And they came to Elim, where twelve wells of water, and threescore and ten palm trees,: and they credit there by the water." The twelve wells at Elim, in SA, are still there. So are many palm trees.
Sounds like Oyun Musa - but that is in Egypt. Want to say why your site is the correct one, given that names are uncertain evidence - as you admit.
Paulk, Exodus 19:18 "And Mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the Lord descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly."
The top of Mount Sinai (Jabal al Lawz) is black. No other mountain in the area are.
When the rocks are turned over, the undersides are brown.
Can you say the same about your place in the Egyptian Peninsula?

The dark colour of the rocks at Jabal Maqla- which is the mountain you refer to - is due to a layer of darker rock (hornfels, rather than the paler granite beneath). It’s not the result of any event in the last few thousand years. Odd that your “decades” of research hadn’t found that out.
If you have “overwhelming evidence” why are you wasting time with stuff like this?
Paulk, Exodus 24:4 "And Moses...rose up early in the morning, an builded an altar under the hill, and twelve pillars, according to the twelve tribes of Israel." There is such an altar at Jabal al Lawz. There is also evidence where twelve pillars were erected. A few of the pillars still stand. Does the sight in the Peninsula have such an altar and pillars?
Doing a little reasearch myself, these identifications are extremely dubious. Again, far from the “overwhelming evidence” you claimed.
What next? Are you going to say that since Paul said Mt Sinai was in Arabia he meant Saudi Arabia? That’s one of the standard lines from the Wyatt camp. It’s also pretty stupid for reasons that should be obvious.
Paulk, at Mount Sinai (Jabal al Lawz) we have the cave of Elijah; altar of Moses; wells; golden calf altar; an old stream that ran down: blackened top; 3000 graves cemetary; lakebed; petroglyphs of bulls; and, Moses' speaking platform located a little ways up the mountain.
The name for Moses in SA is Mousa and/or Mustafa.
Many places in that area was named after Mousa.
Jabal Mousa. Valley of Mousa. Well if Mousa. Land of Mousa. ETC.
the Saudi government has a fence around the area. It is kept under guard, with signs in both Arabic and English warning against entrance.
The Jihad and the Saudi's have no doubt that this was the mountain of Moses (Mousa, Mustafa).
They say they want to preserve and protect such a high religious site. They want to preserve it.
Their reasons for guarding the site might be true. However, They might want to keep the fact that the Israelites sojourned so long in their land a secret.
Now I want to hear all your evidence of St. Catherine Monastery being on the so-called Mt. Sinai in the Peninsula.
