    Tony how about the writings of Josephus Flavius talks all about Israel or Judea as it was known then being Jewish. Judea was a province of the Roman Empire when Herod was on the throne. Then you have the New Testament and not forgetting of course Jesus and his followers were all Jews who were born and grew up in Judea ( not Palestine ) There you go not a single mention of the Torah or any other Jewish sources and you have evidence of Jews being there 2000 years ago. If though you feel you need more evidence then why not look at archeological evidence like the Dead Sea Scrolls or things like coinage found there which were minted under the various Jewish kings. There was no Palestine until after the Bar Kochba revolts when the Romans renamed Judea Philistina which is a name that stuck for 2000 years until it was finally done away with in 1948. Then in 1964 an Egyptian engineer by the name of Yasser Arafat decided to start calling the arabs Palestinians for political purposes.
