Actually you need to check your history. Israel did exist as a state long before... and just while we're using wikipedia now as a reliable source
here you go. en.wikipedia.org...
Here is the quote from wikipedia regarding ancient Israel:
Further information: History of ancient Israel and Judah and History of Palestine
The notion of the "Land of Israel", known in Hebrew as Eretz Yisrael (or Eretz Yisroel), has been important and sacred to the Jewish people since
Biblical times. According to the Torah, God promised the land to the three Patriarchs of the Jewish people. On the basis of scripture, the
period of the three Patriarchs has been placed somewhere in the early 2nd millennium BCE, and the first Kingdom of Israel was established around
the 11th century BCE. Subsequent Israelite kingdoms and states ruled intermittently over the next four hundred years, and are known from various
The northern Kingdom of Israel, as well as Philistine city states fell in 722 BCE, though the southern Kingdom of Judah and several Phoenician city
states continued their existence as the region came under Assyrian rule. With the emergence of Babylonians, Judah was eventually conquered as well.
All four of the 'extra-bibical' sources cited are of recent origin (latest being 1985). Granted these are probably secondary or teriatary sources, the
Bible cannot be a sole source of authenticity. On this matter.
I don't know much more about the post Egyptian era of the Kingdom of Israel/Philstine. Not that interested. Whatever the case is the Jewish people
don't have a good claim on the land. And even less of a claim on the land that has been stolen from the Palestinians since the UN Mandate.
It's informative to look at just how much the 'Borders' have changed since the state of Israel has come into being. Here is a link to the changes
between 1946 and 2008. Tell be this is not a war of aggression.
