Why is there absolutely no verifiable historical or archaeological evidence whatsoever of the Israelites ever being anywhere near Egypt?

Israelites, not Israelis. :)

If they were there, it certainly wasn't as slaves. Egypt used a labor tax during the flood season, not slaves. The laborers were respected and well treated.

Praetorianus Fair enough.

This so-called damnatio memoriae didn't work. They tried it with Akhenaten because of his monotheism but there's plenty left.

A nomadic desert tribe doesn't leave many artifacts, but historical? I haven't read up on it but the Egyptians were thoroughly recording much lesser events than the escape of thousands of slaves. Makes me think if there should be no records why.

I've been to a worker's village. It's quite fancy, complete with mini pyramid tombs.

Egyptians were known to erase anything they did not like, even their Pharaohs that fell into disapproval.

True, it was just a thought. It is not an opinion.

What about the burning bush & golden calf rock formations on the Sinai peninsula, which is part of Egypt. (Personally seen both)

Let me get my map, I thought they were right next door.

I have heard of a different area they were in during the same time they were supposed to be in Egypt and there are records of that, I haven't gotten to looking into it though.
