King David did exist there is plenty of NON BIBLICAL sources confirming that. What he would say if he could see what this country has become today he would say what have they done with my empire. The kingdom of Judea not only was made up of all the land the British held during the mandate but also all of modern day Jordan and parts of modern day Syria and Lebanon. I think he would be proud of what the IDF is today because David was also the warrior king. He would also be proud of the haredi because they are the most God fearing and David kept every rule in the book.
