Odd quote to start off an article with. ( My opinion. )
But if you don't believe or don't read the Bible, then perhaps the statement is logical. (???) When the Jews multiplied in Egypt they weren't a problem then, until the Pharoah who did not know of and/or did not choose to remember Joseph, decided that the Israelites were a "problem". Other than the facts that they were having a lot of babies and lived in the Land of Goshen. That was their home. They weren't trying to spread themselves out because there wasn't enough room. They were settled and weren't exactly messing with anybody! They weren't trying to overthrow the ruler and set up a new government or anything.
So what is written in the Exodus, is that like - the product of a great imagination?
Let's say the Exodus from Egypt account is a fictional. You know if you watch the "wandering Jews" or the " diaspora " (hope that term is used properly), wherever they move to, they usually just settle down and live quietly, do business, observe their religious customs, practices and traditions. Whether there are millions or just a "minority", they don't create the impression they came to take over! Seems like the only land they are ever willing to fight over is Palestine.
The rest of the earth? Jews be like - Whatever!
It's just an observation. Please correct me if you see flaws.
