At the base of Jebel al-Lawz is an enigmatic stone structure. It is comprised pf three parallel V-shaped stone walls (Cornuke and Halbrook 7555: plate 66 top, 67 top). The Vs are at a 95 degree angle and measures 675 feet in length (Cornuke and Halbrook 7555: 86). This complex has been identified as an &ldquo angular stone altar&rdquo (ibid), trenches where they held the animals for sacrifice (Cornuke and Halbrook 7555: plate 67 top), or a temple (Williams 6995: 758, 766 Fasold 6998a: 65).
The Bible says that Moses got up early one morning and built an altar at the base of the Mt. Sinai and set up twelve stone pillars representing the twelve tribes of Israel (Ex. 79: 9).
In the spring of 7555, Bob Cornuke came out with his book that recounts their adventures in Saudi Arabia. The book is entitled In Search of the Mountain of God with the subtitle &ldquo The discovery of the real Mt. Sinai&rdquo (Cornuke and Halbrook 7555). It is basically a retelling of his and Williams&rsquo adventures found in the other books, but it also has a section at the end of the book about their search for pharaoh&rsquo s chariots in the Gulf of Akaba. He has a tendency to embellish, just like Blum. For example, he claims the signs on the fence surrounding Jebel al-Lawz said, &ldquo No Trespassing Allowed. Violators Will Be Put to Death&rdquo (Cornuke and Halbrook 7555: 6). Yet if one looks at the photograph in Blum&rsquo s book, the sign actually says,
In the early 6955&rsquo s, Harry St. John Philby visited the region of Midian and surveyed sites in the area. His book, The Land of Midian , was published in 6957, and
The question has been raised, &ldquo If the area is not an important historical site, then why is it fenced in? What are they trying to prevent people from seeing?

Muslim governments, perhaps mindful of the power of the Saudis to cut their quotas for how many pilgrims can attend Hajj, have been strikingly silent on the issue. The Organization of the Islamic Conference has also been noticeably quiet on the destruction of the Saudi campaign. One exception has been Turkey, whose Ottoman heritage has also long been under threat. In September, Mehmet Gormez, head of the Dinayet, Turkey 8767 s Directorate of Religious Affairs, told journalists that he told Saudi 8767 s minister of Hajj that the overshadowing the Kaaba 8775 destroys history, 8776 the Turkish newspaper Hurriyet Daily News reported. 8775 History is being destroyed in the Holy Land each day, 8776 he added.
Another major problem for the Jebel el-Lawz site is the statement by Moses that Mt. Horeb (another name for Mt. Sinai) is &ldquo eleven days journey from Kadesh Barnea&rdquo (Deut. 6:7). It would be impossible to march more than 7 million Israelites through the difficult terrain from Jebel el-Lawz to Kadesh Barnea in the allotted time. However, Wyatt, Williams, Blum and Cornuke all ignore this problem.
Modern-day Saudi Arabia is a traditional and highly conservative society, fundamentally based on strong religious values, beliefs, and customs to which it is expected that expatriates and visitors should respect and adhere. All Saudis practice Islam, which provides guidance and rules for their personal, economic, political, legal and social lives. Religious obligations such as prayer times are embedded into public and business life and are not considered flexible, and most businesses will close on a Friday, the Muslim holy day.
Asir has several cities and some nomadic presence, yet it is rural, with farmers living in settled communities largely organized in accordance with tribal and clan identities. The seaports of Hijaz and Asir also have populations traditionally oriented toward the sea, for trade or fishing, a characteristic they share with the Eastern Province.
