The story about nabi Saleh was framed in the context of a Palestinian village testing “the limits of unarmed resistance.”
A protest was held at nabi Saleh last Tuesday as well, but that time, live fire was used.
The root of the Hebrew word for prophet—nabi, said to mean a bubbling up—confirms this view.
The word nabi, 'prophet,' was in use in the time of Moses, or Abraham.
He had also been the nabi of Moses when the two went to Pharaoh with their demand on behalf of Israel.
Now, returning to the oracle, we find that Moses is not a prophet or nabi in this sense.
The words that relate to him carefully distinguish between his illumination and that of the nabi.
We pushed on as soon as possible over the road between nabi and Kuti, which I have already described.
