 Is Mt. Sinai in Saudi Arabia, by Gordon Franz
His candidate for Mt. Sinai was Jebel al-Lawz because it was the highest peak in the entire NW Saudi Arabian region (Noorbergen 1982: 157-174).
Jebel el-Lawz is the highest of the mountain in Midian ­ 8,465 feet ­ higher than any mountain in the Sinai Peninsula; but biblical Mt. Sinai need not be the highest mountain.
In the case of Jebel al-Lawz they might be concerned about sheep and goats knocking down the walls of the "v-shaped altar".

 Where is Mt. Sinai?
For over a thousand years, pilgrims have traveled to St. Catherine's Monastery at the foot of Jebel Musa, a 7,500-foot mountain on the Sinai Peninsula, and hiked to the top of the peak where they believe God revealed Himself to Moses.
The tradition associating Jebel Musa with the biblical Mt. Sinai only goes back to the fourth century, a considerable distance to be sure, but still 600 to 800 years later than when the Sinai tradition first emerged.
The open space at the base of the mountain, unlike Jebel Musa, could have supported the encampment of thousands of Israelites.

 Mount Sinai Featured on PAX Television
New information seems to indicate that the real Mount Sinai is in Saudi Arabia, and interestingly enough, the Saudi Arabian Government has erected a chain link fence and closed down all geological and archaeological excavations on this mountain in the ancient land of Midian.
The traditional site called Jebel Musa, and located near Saint Catherine's Monastery, fails all of the historical, geographical and archaeological tests.
William Fry: Unknown to most people, the Jebel Musa site was selected solely on the opinion of one man, or perhaps we should say one man's mother.

He saw that there was desert area around Jebel el Lawz, between Al-Bad and the highest peak in this mountain range—and that there were valleys in the mountain range which Moses could have led his flocks through, taking him to the "backside of the desert".
The Saudis were all convinced as to the authenticity of Jebel el Lawz—it was the true holy mountain of God.
Any hopes of closer inspection of Jebel el Lawz now rested in the hope that the Saudis wouldn't hold a grudge—as soon as he could financially afford it, Ron planned to notify them that he wanted to do the excavation.

 Thoughts on Jebel al-Lawz and the Location of Mt. Sinai   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
The straight-line distance from Jebel al-Lawz to Kadesh Barnea is approximately 150 miles.
The distance from Jebel Musa to Kadesh Barnea is about 160 map miles, again much too far for the Israelites to trek in 11 days.
Utilizing the travel time of the Israelites as an estimate of the distance traveled, the location of Mt. Sinai should be sought in the northern area of the Sinai Peninsula, roughly 60 miles from Kadesh Barnea.

Part of the Greek monastery of St. Catherine there dates back to 330 A.D., indicating how old the tradition is. But to get to Jebel Musa, Moses would have had to lead his people through the Egyptian copper and turquoise mines in the area.
In that case, Mount Sinai should be that unimpressive mound known as Jebel Hillel, 30 miles south of El Arish, and rising a mere 2,000 ft. from the alluvial plain.
To get to Jebel Hillel, he points out, the Israelites would have had to cross a marshland sometimes known as the Sea of Reeds, which might well have been that Red Sea whose waters parted to let the Children of Israel through.

 Associates for Biblical Research: Biblical Archaeology
I would agree with the proponents of the Jebel al-Lawz hypothesis that Jebel Musa, the traditional Mt. Sinai, or any other site in the southern Sinai Peninsula, could not be the real Mt. Sinai.
Alois Musil (1926: 263,264, 269, 296-298) and H. Philby (1957: 222-224) identify Mt. Sinai / Horeb with Jebel al-Manifa, near Wadi al-Hrob, 20 kilometers north of ‘Ajnuna (1926: 269, 297).
The second false assumption is that Mt. Sinai is located in the Land of Midian, which is identified as part of the Saudi Arabian peninsula (Williams 1990:68-74).
