DC: ""There was NEVER a soverign country called Israel either intil 1949." 17: "-- ???" You sound puzzled. Are you *really* going to claim that the modern state of Israel is the successor state to the biblical kingdom of Israel? Really? I guess that means Il Duce was quite correct to adopt the pomp and pagentry of the Roman Empire for his fascist state, and thereby claim that made it the successor to ancient Rome. Really, 17, apart from the fact that BOTH were stocked chock-full of Jews and BOTH were called "Israel" then what, exactly, were the shared characterists of the two "Israels"?
