Phil, you are wrong. There is NOTHING in ancient history that makes Israel a legitimate nation. There was nothing in ancient history that made Israel today. Israel had not existed for over 2,000 years when the current nation was created. It was Jews from Europe who made 'Israel' by moving to Palestine and building the essentials of a nation. They built farms, and then they built industries. They defended those farms and industries and when civil war broke out in Palestine during late 1947. It was those Jews, not ancient history, who fought to hold on to what they had, and secure the necessary lines of communications between those areas. It was the Israelis who declared Independence and named their nation. It was the Israelis who built a nation out of various peoples of the Jewish religion during the 1950s and 1960s. It was Israelis who achieved the final victory which made Israel an irrevocable fact in the Yom Kippur War. Phil, Israelis made Israel, not ancient history.
