Truth the mainstream media doesn't tell you about
I can sort of answer that. There never has been a nation called Israel. It was basically, according to the true records of the Torah (Not The Talmud) the land between the River Jordan and the Mediterranean Sea a land grant given in a covenant between God and Abraham and originally was occupied by the Canaanites. It only became popularly referred to as Israel, because after 400 years of living in Goshen, the children of Israel/Jacob returned to it. Mind that most of those who returned were of the group following the priests who had rebelled against Moses at the base of the mountain where God handed down His Law to Moses. That group is the Sanhedrin, and did NOT follow the original intent of Yahweh. They literally used military force to take the land. They later became known as The Pharisees. They wrote their own version of the law and it is The Talmud and is at the least a license to the followers of the Sanhedrin to practice paganism, and worshiping of Baal, Dagon, etc, and is as perverted in it's writings as porno films are in our time. It was only officially known as a nation under the name of Palestine.
I will check with an acquaintance of mine who is a Non Zionist Torah practicing Hebrew descendent of the line of Israel to validate what I have written.
There is a lot more to this all , but I tire quickly when I type a lot. Most of this information can be researched using many of my posts as a starting point.
ANSWER There is no place on the map with the legitimate name called Israel except by the Ashkenazi Jews who descended from Esau, i.e. The Rothschilds who were given the deed to Palestine via the Balfour Declaration.
WoW! @ Wally:
Not many people know the info contained in your last sentence / answer.
Balfour , Ashkenazi , etc.
As the bible says , Israel; is a tribe.....not a place.
Damn thats why I love it here, one gets the truth and not hype. What Israel claims as "its'"land was taken by force or given to them thru BULLSHIT idiots
