Ibn Ezra and the Great Secret of Genesis 12:6

והכנעני אז בארץ” – יתכן שארץ כנען תפשה כנען מיד אחר. ואם איננו כן יש לו סוד. והמשכיל ידום:

The Canaanites were then in the land” – likely that the Land of Canaan was grabbed by Canaan from the hands of another. But if this is not so, it has a secret, and the one who comprehends it will fall silent.
