Why are you making that ridiculous assertion? C'mon, get
real. That's like saying the word "son" never appears in Latin
Church records. Of course it doesn't. "Son" is English and Latin
Church records are in Latin.
The Talmud was written in Aramaic, and "Exilarch" is not an Aramaic
word. The Aramaic term for "Exilarch" is "Reish Galusa". Do you
dispute this? Do you dispute that "reish galusa" appears hundreds of
times in the Talmud?
