Hebrew is one of the earliest Afroasiatic languages. It has been argued that the Hebrews were a offshoot of the Canaanites, even akin to them. It is nearly undesputable that the Canaanites were Africanoid people in both language and appearance. The geographical location of the time determines the Canaanites and Hamitic peoples to be Africanoid. With the early Hebrews originating from such a group and being so closely intertwined with these Africanoid peoples would it be too far fetched to say that the early Hebrews were presumably a African tribe and or Africanoid in language and appearance?

Taking in mind the geographic location, the peoples in that area at that time and that Hebrew is one of the early Afroasiatic languages.

  • @Comintern, indeed, Im more looking at the question from a linguistic and geographic perspective, I felt that it could be deduced better that way. – eliyah Oct 1 '14 at 0:06
