    The jewish state, or "Judah", formed only a small part around Jerusalem. The bigger part, comprising 11 of the 12 tribes, was Israel and never accepted Jerusalem as its capital. The land was promised and given to Abraham, not to Judah - who was only one of 12 tribes. And Judah married "outside the family" so his children (Jews) never completely were Abrahmic, unlike the rest of the Israelites. And hence their claim to anything was always considered doubtful, at best. That Israelites started callin themselevs as Jews, was an abberation after the Assyrian invasion. It is time this got corrected.
