"Laban & Rebekah are Brother & Sister."
The Laban was another name for Tothmosis III? Rebekah was his sister/wife?
So Tothmosis III had some foreign blood in him - better to lay claim to foreign dominions. No wonder Hatshepsut could hold him off for so long - but she would have been 'foreign' as well, to some degree!
