Medina is Jewish, history records many Jews by that name (For example: Solomon de Medina was a wealthy Jew who went with William III to England as an army contractor). As well as historical records (Inquisition Records, Beavis Marks Records Of Sephardic Jews, Etc.) show Medina to be Jewish. If the Arabs are basing themselves on their Medina City, well let me say that Medina City was originally a Jewish Colony found by Jews, and then later the Arabs came and took the city from us (The Jews).

no way! look at the dead sea scrolls-- hebrew, not arabic--I ahve never seen a tanach in arabic ...and hebrew has been continuously used in prayer since BCE. "wrong information", indeed! alive and well for the past 2000+ years, thank-you-- with a sojourn of the vernacular Aramaic. check (and how about, *name) your sources. b'shalom, lia
Interesting Spanish surname. I think it's a common one. This particular surname is also, to my knowledge, a Jewish and an Arabic first name.

Like all Semitic words there is a relationship. As 1941 "Hebrew" was dead language, even after further resaerch, it is to be taken notice, that the Tanakh was written in arabic, and many word of the ancient language were pronounced following tha arabic phonetic. It is that centuries later the Jehudy ashkenaz developed yidish and wrote it using the defunt hebrew alphabeth. It's time to stop difunding the wrong information, after all: Adonai ehad!
