An additional piece of informtion: The Jews lived almost continuously in Israel for thousands of years. The only time they did not live in Israel was when the Crusaders conquered the Holy land and slaughtered all the Jews there. However, the Crusaders also slaughtered all the Moslems in the Holy Land at the same time. When Sulieman defeated the Crusaders he immediately recruited 5000 Jewish volunteers from Egpypt to defend the Walls of Jerusalem. So your statement is still correct.
