Flying in the face of widespread left wing extremism!

Great moments in history. 600 BC.

Posted by Exile on July 27, 2006


Tyre. Lebanon.
The first evacuation.

Because Tyre was such a beautiful and wealthy city, it was desired by other empires. The history of the city has a dark side that was plagued by war throughout its history. The first of these battles started when Nebuchadnezzar, the King of Babylon tried to conquer the city. He tried for thirteen years but Tyre stood up to his attempts. It is unknown if the mainland city was conquered with the residents taking refuge on the island or not.

Evidence shows some of the residents were evacuated by ship to early western democracies.
