    Near Baalbek, in the Bekaa Valley, there is a curios and mysterious stone, named by the locals “Hajar el Hibla” - The Stone of the Pregnant Woman - one of the largest existing monoliths, a rectangular block of 1650 tons, still inside the quarry. It carries many legends behind it. Perhaps the name of the monolith comes from a pregnant woman who tricked the people of Baalbek by saying that she could move the giant stone if they only fed her until the childbirth. Perhaps instead the monolith was placed there by the Annunaki (the Nefilim), the ancient astronauts who came from Nibiru, thanks to their advanced technologies. I like to think that the Giants, ancient inhabitants of those lands, with their stature out of the ordinary and with their strength have erected this imposing site. In the Bible, in the Book Numbers, Moses, while wandering in the desert with the Jews, sent spies to those lands for a possible invasion. But the spies reported, We can’t attack those people; they are stronger than we are.” And they spread among the Israelites a bad report about the land they had explored. They said, “The land we explored devours those living in it. All the people we saw there are of great size. We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim). We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them.” We will never know!😌🧿🌴🗿

    One of the biggest stones of its kind dates back to the Phoenician Era. These photos I added date back to 2011. Now new exploration unraveled the complete stone quarry.
