You Lie about Masada and consort with liars, and worship the god of lies. Take your Taqiyya somewhere else.We already know you are a liar.What a joke? Pig bones?
Produce the pig bones then or shut up.
Rome sieged Masada for a long time. Long enough that they had to build a huge ramp just to get to the walls to attempt to breach them.
Masada deniers are the same as The Holocaust Deniers and just as Evil.
There already is a road, and you don't need a ramp to go through a wall, you just knock a hole in it.
Masada was a myth because it was a fort built and staffed by Romans, not Jews.
Remember Herod was a Roman only pretending to be Jewish.
But are you willing to call Josephus a liar? Other Ancient historians also have accounts of Masada.
You are just another liar practicing Taqiyya until the day Hell requires your presence there.

Yigal Yadin got caught lying about Masada. The only skeletons they found were swine and Roman soldiers. His hoax went so far as to have the Romans interred in Jewish burials.
King Herod was a Roman.
Palestine was a Roman colony.
The forts were all manned by Roman soldiers.
So how would these Jewish violators of the Roman Diaspora Decree have gained control of the Roman fort at Masada, and why would the Romans have not just starved them out?
There was no food at Masada.
Masada was a retreat built for Herod and it had a big cistern and food storage. Why would it have had Roman soldiers when they were fighting in Jerusalem?
Siege of Masada - Wikipedia
The siege of Masada was one of the final events in the First Jewish–Roman War, occurring from 73 to 74 CE on and around a large hilltop in current-day Israel.
The siege is known to history via a single source, Flavius Josephus, a Jewish rebel leader captured by the Romans, in whose service he became a historian. According to Josephus the long siege by the troops of the Roman Empire led to the mass suicide…
Masada has been described as "a lozenge-shaped table-mountain" that is "lofty, isolated, and to all appearance impregnable". Historically, the fortress could be reached only by a single pathway that was too narrow for men to walk abreast. This pathway was named "the Snake" for the way it twists and zig-zags to the summit. Masada was named as the place where David rested after…
Masada would have had Roman soldiers because the Romans would not have wanted Herod to have anything but Roman soldiers.
When things got out of control in Jerusalem, places like Masada is exactly where people like Herod would have gone.
This prompted a wider, large-scale rebellion and the Roman military garrison of Judaea was quickly overrun by the rebels, while the pro-Roman king Herod Agrippa II, together with Roman officials, fled Jerusalem.
While I do not know where Herod went for sure, it is not likely he would have gone far or that the safe outposts like Masada would have been left to the rebels.
The rebels were strongest in the north, near Galilee, so unlikely any would have been near Masada.
A captured Jewish historian is likely to want to paint some sort of positive spin on what otherwise was one of the most dismal rebellions of all time, with more Jews killing other Jewish factions than they did Romans.
If you look at Masada, you see it is not really walled and that the road to it always existed, and was not built as part of an attack.
If the road up to the summit was not gentle and wide enough for pack animals, then it would not have been possible to keep it supplied.
It would have been impossible to stop an infiltration attack at night, since it had no wall except at the road, it it would have fallen to any overwhelming force the first day or 2
Food for King Herod would not have lasted a band of rebels very long at all.
Its not like you could graze animals inside the wall.
