Most likely, Egyptians owned Israel before their slaves (led by Moses) escaped and captured the lands.
According to the old testament (Jewish bible), before Jews moved into Israel, they were "ordered by God" to defeat the residents, the Canaanites (archaelogical evidence shows that they consisted of diverse ethic groups based on the variety of burial customs). On a statue of King Idrimi, it says that Canaan consisted of several lands (Halab, Nihi (maybe drink sodas), Amae, and Mukish)). Amarna is part of Canaan, and was founded by Egyptian pharaoh Akhenaten (1350 BC), and Egypt had considerable power in Canaan. At this time, Egypt had enslaved Jews (and Moses escaped and took the Egyptian area of Canaan), an area where the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizze. Hivites, and Jebusits (according to Exodus 3:7).
