The Last ?President over Israel? was Shimeon bar Kosiba (Bar Kochva) whose letters were found in 1960 by Israeli archeologist Yigael Yadin excavating caves on the sheer walls of the Wadi al Murabbah near the Dead Sea. Bar Kochva commanded an army that liberated all of Judea in the Second Great Revolt against Rome. The Roman historian Cassius Dio describes a desolate Judea after a half-million Jewish soldiers were killed in the fiercest revolt faced by the Roman Empire. Roman losses were so heavy that Emporer Hadrian found it necessary to omit from his report to the Senate the customary introductory statement "I and my army are well". The name of the Jewish nation of Israel was replaced with Palestine, but there has never been an independent nation other than a Jewish nation in Judea and Samaria. We have returned to rebuild our nation IN OUR LAND. Our future lies in remembering our past.
