Those nasty Canaanites!

As the physical removal of adherents to another religion was not usually possible, their religion was dealt with through caricatures and ridicule and neutralized as a temptation in order to turn it into a dark foil for one’s own religion. The First Testament is interspersed with severe and subjective derision of non-Jewish or non-Israelite religions.— Othmar Keel in Divine Doppelgängers: YHWH’s Ancient Look-Alikes, p. 36
