comment Were the ancient Israelites of a darker skin tone?
As was not so elegantly pointed out, any comments of a personal nature will most likely be deleted when noticed. If anyone has a problem with a poster here, please respond by flagging problematic content, not by posting personal attacks.

comment Were the ancient Israelites of a darker skin tone?
There's a lot of information in some of these comments that I think would have gone well in an answer. Shame the question got closed, so nobody has that opportunity now...

"Hamitic" does actually have a modern meaning. However, that meaning is essentially "speaking a Afroasiatic language that isn't Semitic". Since Egyptian was probably far closer related to Semitic than either is to Cushitic, the term isn't horribly conductive to helpful categorical reasoning.

comment Was there a plan “B” for the D-Day?
@ThomasPornin - In a German-controlled Paris it would be the German occupiers who would have had their supplies cut off. I'd think it more likely that Eisenhower was thinking militarily and wanted to go after the remaining organized German opposition ASAP, while the political leadership saw the political benefits of taking Paris back (particularly as the Russians were standing aside and allowing the Germans to crush the Warsaw Uprising)

comment Why some countries have more than one name?
...which confuses a lot of us English speakers because we call people who live in the Netherlands "Dutch", so logically if we were to call anywhere "Dutch-land" it would be Holland, not Germany.
