Neither does Mesopotamia from whence the Hebrews originally came. The Romans did not change the name to Palestine; it was Palestine as recorded by the Egyptians long before the Romans arrived. Pales was actually a Canaanite God from which no doubt, Palestine came. There never was a State of Israel and even Israeli historians and archeologists admit that. There is no evidence beyond the religios writings and that is not evidence. At best there were some tribal kingdoms established by Hebrews alongside other tribal kingdoms established by non-Hebrews. But, even if there had been a State of Israel it would not matter... well, it would not have been a state because the nation state did not exist, but a kingdom called Israel that was then and you don't get dibs on what happened two thousand years ago. More to the point religions don't have homelands; are not a people, nation, state or anything which might confer rights. So while there was a Persian kingdom, large and very grand and while there was an Israelite kingdom, small and tribal, they are both ended.
