As-Salaam Alaikum and hi to all!

You must have heard about the movie these Hollywood guys have made on the Iraq war titled "Valley of Elah."   Would anyone know the religious or historical connotation of this title?  I was wondering about it ..

Walaikum Salaam dear cat. 

I wouldn't have too many details, but as far as I know it has a biblical connotation.  Elah is said to be the son of a person called Baasha who was a Jewish king during the year 800 plus BC.  Elah succeeded his father and also became king.  Then, the valley of Elah is supposed to be the valley where the Israelites were encamped when David killed Goliath.  It is situated somewhere in today's Palestine.

The word "Elah" is also said to be the Aramaic term for God, same as "Allah."  However, according to various historical evidences, the Aramaic term for God was "Allah" not "Elah."  More information in the post Origin of the term 'Allah'

Hummm, I think it's most cheeky and manipulative of Hollywood to use this title when this was the most insignificant of all civilizations in that 'Cradle of Civilization.'  If the movie is about the Iraq war, the first thing that comes to one's mind concerning it is "Disaster."  This would sound a lot more apt.
