The ancient Phoenician (Günhan) city of Qadesh:



Kadesh (Qadesh-on-the-Orontes, also known as Qadesh, Qanta. Kinza, or Kidsa; Hittite: Kadeš) was an ancient city of the Levant, located on or near the headwaters or ford of the Orontes River. It is surmised by Kenneth Kitchen to be the ruins at Tell Nebi Mend,[1] about 24 kilometers (15 mi) southwest of Homs near al-Qusayr and adjacent to the modern-day village of Tell al-Nabi Mando, in what is now western Syria. The text of the inscriptions at the Battle of Kadesh locates the ancient settlement as being near Tunip in the land of the Amurru. Since Tunip is now also believed to have been located on the Orontes (at Tell ‘Acharneh near Tell Salhab in Syria), this is in accord with Kitchen's identification.

Its name comes from the Semitic root Q-D-Š, meaning "holy".”  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kadesh


Polat Kaya:  The map below shows the ancient land of Canaan, that is, of Gunhans.  All place names shown on this map have been Semitized and thus, distorted and disguised. The names of the city of Kadesh (given as Qadesh-on-the-Orontes”, also as Qadesh, Qanta, Kinza, or Kidsa; Hittite: Kadeš) are important since they carry important information related to the presence of the Turkish language in ancient Middle East. The reference tells us that the ancient Canaan city of QADESH was actually a city with a name that meant “holy”.  The names KADESH, QADESH, KADEŠ and KIDSA are very much the altered forms of the Turkish saying of “KUT IŞI” meaning “holy light” – which, in one meaning, refers to the “light of the sun”, that is, “the sunlight” - that not only lights up our world on earth but also creates the livable environment for the living beings on earth. Unquestinably, without the sun and the sunlight, there would be no life, as we know of.  Similarly, the name QANTA is very much an altered form of the Turkish word “KÜN’TÜ” (GÜN’DÜ) meaning “it is Sun (city)”. The word QANTA is also the altered form of the Turkish saying “KENT O” meaning “it is a city”. Therefore, with such meanings in Turkish, the ancient Canaan city of QANTA becomes a “Holy Sun City” and in present day Turkish “Ulu Gün Kent.  


Additionally, the name KINZA is also an altered form of the Turkish name GÜN IŞI” (KÜN IŞI, KİN IŞI) meaning “sunlight”. With such Turkish meanings embedded in these Kadesh city names, it is no wonder that the city has been called by the name “KUT IŞI” and “KUD’US” in Turkish. Furthermore, at the time of Phoenicians, the ancient world was a Sun worshipping Turanian world. The Turkish language of GÜNHANS was a world-wide spoken language of the Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples, contrary to perpetrated Semitic and Aryan disinformation about them.


Under the name THE AMORITES, I discussed the identity of the Amurru people in Part-I of this writing where I explained their Turkish identity.


Thus, the Günhan city of QADESH was one of the oldest holy cities of the Turanian Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples in the ancient land of Canaan. The name CANAAN is the altered and Semitized form of the Turkish saying “GÜNHAN EVİ” meaning “home of Sun-Lords. It must be for this reason that, when the Günhan Lords - (i.e., the Canaanites or the Phoenicians), went into the Iberian penninsula, they also founded a new holy city which is presently called CADIZ in Spanish.


When we study the names shown on the map below, it can be said with confidence that most of the names are altered forms of Turkish names.





Figure 8  Map of Syria in the second millennium BC, showing the location of Kadesh (Qadesh).





The name KADESH is said to have its root from the Semitic root Q-D-Š, meaning "holy".  Here it is important to have a clear understanding of the term “Semitic root”.


The term “Semitic root” is defined as “The roots of verbs and most nouns in the Semitic languages are characterized as a sequence of consonants or "radicals" (hence the term consonantal root). Such abstract consonantal roots are used in the formation of actual words by adding the vowels and non-root consonants (or "transfixes") which go with a particular morphological category around the root consonants, in an appropriate way, generally following specific patterns. It is a peculiarity of Semitic linguistics that a large majority of these consonantal roots are triliterals (although there are a number of quadriliterals, and in some languages also biliterals).”  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semitic_root


Polat Kaya:  This is the “linguistic” system that the Semites used to concoct the so called “Semitic” languages from the ancient Turanian Turkish language. The consonants alone do not constitute a word. One has to have the vowels to make up a proper meaningful word with a definite meaning – and without being abstract or vague.  With this kind of abstract system, they were able to generate all kinds of mythologic tall tales that not even they themselves can make sense of from their writings.  It is a perfect stealing and hiding system.  Thus, they have stolen not only the ancient Turanian language of Turkish, but with it, they also stole the civilization of Turanian Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples.  Thus, they intentionally confused, not only the ancient Turanian world history, but also stole everything which that ancient civilization created.  It is no wonder that they have said:  “This is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah has said:  ‘. . . HERE I AM CREATING NEW HEAVENS AND A NEW EARTH; AND THE FORMER THINGS WILL NOT BE CALLED TO MIND, NEITHER WILL THEY COME UP INTO THE HEARTH.’” Isaiah 65:13, 17.   In other words, not only have they usurped everything from the ancient Turanian world civilization, but also, by using such an abstract language system, they covered up what they did, and made sure that what actually happened would not be remembered. 


With such a writing system, the ancient Turanian term KADESH, being from the so-called “Semitic root” Q-D-Š meaning "holy", can have the following Turkish sayings by filling in vowels in between the consonants: 

a)  QUD ÜS  (KUT ÜS) meaning “Holy place”.

b)  QUD SU (KUT SU) meaning “Holy water”.

c)  QUD IŞU (KUT IŞU) meaning “Holy Light”.

d)  QUD US (KUT US) meaning “Holy wisdom, holy knowledge”.

e)  QUD ISI (KUT ISI) meaning “Holy fire”.

f)  QUD OS (KUT OĞUZ) meaning “Holy Oğuz”.


So, we see that the ancient Canaan lands were HOLY because of the presence of the ancient Turanian religious system and the religious values that they attributed to their sky, sun, moon, earth, water and air and the knowledge that nature had provided for them and that they were grateful for. 

Historıcally, the Canaan (Günhan) city of Qadesh was the battle field of the “Battle of Kadesh” recorded to have taken place in the 13th century B. C. between the armies of Ramses II and the Hittites.  Kadesh is said to have been destroyed by the invading Sea Peoples in around 1178 B. C..  Thus, the Canaanite city of Kadesh was a very old “Holy city” of Turanian Günhans.


The River ORONTES:

As seen in the map of Canaan above, the river ORONTES originates from the central Canaan mountains, flows northward and meets the Mediterranean Sea. We have the following information about it from a Wikipedia link:

“The Orontes (/əˈrɒntiz/; Ὀρόντης) or Asi (Arabic: العاصي, ‘Āṣī; Turkish: Asi) is a river of Lebanon, Syria and Turkey.

It was anciently the chief river of the Levant, also called Draco, Typhon and Axius. The last was a native form, from whose revival, or continuous employment in native speech, has preceded the modern name ‘Āṣī ("rebel"), because the river flows from the south to the north unlike the rest of the rivers in the region.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orontes_River


Polat Kaya: The name ORONTES also seems to be an altered name made up from a Turkish saying. This we can find when the name ORONTES is deciphered as “TONRE-SO”, it reveals its source as the Turkish saying “TANRI SU” meaning “God water or God’s water” which makes the river ORONTES a holy water in the culture of the ancient Turanian Canaanities, thus a “KUT SU” in Turkish.  Additionally, since the ancient Canaanites, that is, the Günhans, were Turanian Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples, the name Orontes also has the name TURAN in it. This we can see when the name ORONTES is deciphered as “TOREN-SO”, where it reveals its name as also being the Turkish saying “TURAN SU” meaning “The water of Tursor “the Turanian water”.  From all this, we find that this river also had been named in Turkish by the ancient Turanian Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples.  All of this, surely, indicates that the so-called Canaanites were Turanian Günhans contrary to misleading and intentionally confused information regarding the toponyms of the ancient Turanian landmarks. 


Additionally, we are told that the River Orontes was also called by the names Draco, Typhon and Axius. The name DRACO also reveals and verifies the fact that the river was named by ancient Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples whose military symbol in Asia and Europe was DRACO which was the “Wolf Head” (Boz Kurt) war symbol of the ancient Turanian Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples all over the Turanian lands.  The name DRACO was also the carrier of not only the name “CORD-A” (KURT O) meaning “it is wolf”, but it also carried the name “TORC-A” (TURK O) meaning “it is Turk” (https://www.facebook.com/groups/polat.kaya/permalink/838869472792638/).  This again verifies that all ancient Canaan lands were the lands of the ancient Turanian Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples rather that Semitic speaking Semites.


Curiously, the name DRACO also embeds the name “ACDOR (AGADUR, AGATUR) meaning “the Lord TUR” which describes the ancestral God-Father of Turanians. Clearly, this is the name they gave to the Phoenician city “AGADIR” in the Iberian Penninsula, that is, the present city of “CADIZ”. 

The Orontes River, that is, the TANRI SU also had the ancient name AXIUS.   If the X is replaced with KS, then AXIUS is seen to be an altered form of the Turkish saying “AKSI-SU” which has the meanings of: “rebel water” and “reverse flowing water” in Turkish.  This is probably why the present name of this river is “ASİ SU” meaning “the rebel water!”

After having identified the original Turanian identity of this ancient river flowing in ancient Canaan lands, we must also note that along the southern sections of the River Orontes, that is, the TANRI SU” (TURAN SU), there is the city of Qadesh (Kadesh) that I noted and explained above. From the given information, Qadesh was also known as “Qadesh-on-the-Orontes”, that is to say “Tanri-Su Üzerinde Kut’ışı Gün Kenti” in Turkish.  

I explained above the possible meanings of the name QADESH - one of which was “KUT SU” in Turkish.  The name QANTA is very much the altered form of the Turkish word “GÜNTÜ” meaning “it is sun”. The name KINZA is very much the altered form of the Turkish word “GÜN SU” meaning “sun water”, and the name KIDSA is very much the altered form of the Turkish word “KUT SU” meaning “holy water”.  We have again proven that all of these so-called “Semitic” toponyms were actually Turkish names originally which were then usurped (altered, rearranged and confused so that they don’t look Turkish any more but rather look “Semitic”).

Just south of the city of QADESH is an area called GALILEE which is also a distorted form of a Turkish saying.  We must note that in this particular area, there are a number of lakes – large and small.  Because of this multitude of lakes, the area would be called GÖL İLİ meaning “land of lakes”.  Thus, the name GALILEE is a distortion of Turkish saying GÖL İLİ.  This is more proof that the ancient Canaan lands were Turkish lands.
