Jose Pardo Hidalgo and Jewish origins of Iberia

Jose Pardo Hidalgo, of Murcia, Spain writes to me by email:

Dear Sirs, Do you know if Iberia is coming of Ibrya=Hebrew,the Hebrew land of Spain and Portugal.Ivry is a Jewish surnames, Ivrya,may pe "Ladino", for femenine.. where Iberos semitic people, Assyrian tablets say even Celts were a tribe Lost of Israel, red.haired and blue eyes,losing his identity, not lost, only identity, Judah, benjamin, dan, etc... which is your opinion?.Thanks and peace,lover and friendships,Thank you.

I write back that this does not fit with the pattern of settlement of Iberia in pre-Roman times, before the Jewish diaspora, and I include a few links, such as:The Iberian language dates back to 7th century B.C., although it may have not been called that back then. Also, the Celtiberians are well known in history, in Rome's wars with Carthage, and that the etymology of Iberian probably originating from the Ebro river.His response was:

I know Ebro river is Hebrew, Hebreo=Hebro=ebro, Gualduivir river, Seville,arab name, means "River of the ivris=Riverof the Hebrews". Jews and Arabs wereas brother many centuries. Inquisition destroyed everything. However,Iber,Ebermeans =Abraham,as per dictionary of Jewish surnames, of Families, Prof.Guggenheimer, verygood book.Many Jews adopted Arab surnames,latin, Berber,New Christians, etcand also Hebrew as Barcelona=Bar-sheloneu=Our coast, Mahari, arab, Jews surname, "Coty of adobe houses". Murcia was built by Arabs as city,but Jew were here with Roman, Soria means Soraya, arab, Sephardic surname, Murcia is not mursiye, it is Morsaya=God, the goldsmith or Myhrr,s goldsmith , of Mor, Jewish surname,also master,also Myhrr.It is complicated.very interesting.Thank you very much.Best regards,peace,love and friendship,brotherhood.Dr.Jose Pardo Hidalgo,Ph.D.

So, I did some more searching, and Google turned up a few links, such as this post by Jose:

Here is another post about Pardo genealogy on Yahoo Groups.There is no question that some Jews inhabited the Iberian penninsula prior to their explusion in 1492. It is well documented that the early Catholic rulers of Iberia had to deal with Jews, as evidenced by the Visigothic Code, and its harsh stance on them. It was much more draconian and biased against them from say, the Roman Justinian Code. However, jumping to the conclusion that they are the original of the Iberians is tenuous at best. A more plausible scenario is that they came to Spain after the diaspora caused by the Roman general Titus' destruction of the temple in 70 C.E.



ravings of one of the internauts

This man, José whatever is name is, talks out of his arse. There is NO International University of Cambridge.
He speaks English awefully; in fact he is quite inarticulate. It is doubtful whether one doesn't have to write good English before researching for a Ph.D.? it seems no when one reads José P.H.
He seems to be oblivious to the fact that the University of Cambridge doesn't distribute such high qualifications like sweeties. I doubt if this man knows waht a Ph.D. is and entails?
Pardo is a famous name and his family are appauled at him and his behaviour.
The man has grave personal problems specially regarding feminine relationships and is not to be trusted in anyway.
This seems evident from the above text; i.e. he calls upon the "males"; is obsessed with bodybuilding, and arrogantly announces his superiority over others.
The lay-out of his mail simply is inconsistent with his academic claims.
He appears conceited and arrogant. It is clear that he is seeking recognition to make up for his loneliness and many flaws in his pesonal life.
Also i doubt whether he really has contacted a laboratory. In any case money goes a long way anywhere.
You will understand why his acquaintances, penpales and relations don't want to hear from him ever again.
Oh and IBERIA comes form the IBERIAN tribes who lived in the peninsula 8th centuries before Christ; archeological proof has been found by experts on the matter.
Pseudo'history which pretends that Celts came form the middle east have long been disproved although Berbers could have come from Northern India.
You could also argue that Soria comes from Suriya the Indian solar divinity.
It takes more to history thant just taking wild guesses.
Sorry but you are talking a lot of rubbish here and it must be said.
To finish may i remind the above that humility goes a long way in the quest for truth.
