    "It was us Jews who built the Pyramids." I assume, Joshua, that you mean the pyramids of Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure, built during the 4th Dynasty, c. 2550BC. Firstly, Jews could not have built the Pyramids since there were no Jews c. 2550BC. There might have been Hebrews, but the earliest record of their presence in Canaan is c. 1800BC. You should know that "Jew" refers to Judaean, dweller in the country south of Israel and member of the tribe of Judah, son of Jacob-Israel, who was certainly not around in 2550BC. Secondly, there is no proof that there were ever Israelite "slaves" in Egypt who eventually escaped after Moses zapped the land with all sorts of plagues and wiped out all the first-born of the Egyptians (nasty stuff). The careful record keepers of Egypt would have written this down (yes, they wrote about defeat as well, the rule of the Hyksos over Egypt is documented). So before you claim architectural achievements in Egypt, read some history, please.
