    As far as I know there is evidence recorded on Titus's Arch of Jews being lead out of Jerusalem as captives,. How many, I can't say. If anyone wants to look up Aelinia Capitolina, and how it came to be, well . . . . I read that was what the Romans called the Temple Mount after they destroyed the Temple. Then too,what of the Roman accounts of the Wars with the Jews. Then again, it is true that the Jews of the Gallilee remained, to compile the Mishnah, and the Jerusalem Talmud. If the accounts of the Church Fathers are relialble, the majority of the population was Jewish until the Byzatines expelled the Jews after they collaboratled with the Parthians in 617 CE. It is possible that some Jews converted to Christianity in order to remain, but most of them moved East to Persia to become the descendants of the Sephardic Jews, as we know them, following the Arab armies across North Africa to Spain. The Jews that were brought off to the Roman Empire from the Jerusalem carried with them traditions from the Land of Israel, so that in fact, the Ashkenzim, carried the customs of the Land of Israel, and . .. Sephardim developed their traditions in the Mediteranean Basin. Then again after 1492 things got mixed up so by now . . . it' hard to tell. In any case, in spite of what the BBC wants us to know--the Jews are offically back in their Homeland.
