My grandfather was a professor, my father a professor, a brother-in-law 
recently retired from being a professor, along with other acquaintances and 
friends, I should know about the politics in academia. You are asking for 
one professor to commit professional suicide, for what? Once he’s drummed 
out of academia, he can safely be ignored and/or ridiculed. That’s a pretty 
big price, and how many professors are willing to do that? And if you agree 
with the academic politically correct beliefs, things can go well.

You, sir, have a better chance with academia than I or the people at 
http://www.specialtyinterests.net/ (they make some pretty good points, but I 
don’t agree with them on everything they say) because you swallow hook, line 
and sinker the academic view of history. I cannot. And for linguistic 
reasons I cannot agree with your theories either. Those professors who know 
Hebrew will look at your linguistic arguments, and disregard your statements 
on that basis, I don’t know about the history professors.

A lighter note:
Apparently, according to your reference http://www.specialtyinterests.net/
the French Revolution belong to *Ancient* History.
