Overview

Israel 3000 Years, conducts a thorough study of the continuous presence of Jews in Israel for well over 3000 years. The Jewish Yishuv did this in their own kingdoms of Israel and Judah, and then Judaea, and then under the rule of successive foreign invaders: Roman-Byzantines, briefly Persians, Arabs progres-sively dominated by Turks, European Crusaders, Mongols, Mamlukes and Ottoman Turks, until becoming independent Israel again. Israel 3000 Years corrects misunderstandings and deliberate mis¬representations that the Romans exiled the Jews who remained absent from the land for eighteen years until the Zionist era. On the contrary, the Jews never left, and through their heroic endurance all through the centuries, as British historian Parkes put it wrote the Zionists real title deeds. Israel is not a colonial Zionist entity created in 1948 out of guilt for a Holocaust that may have happened in Europe. That canard s answer is not that the Holocaust happened. Incontrovertibly, the Holocaust happened. Its answer is that Jews have lived as an organized, openly Jewish, homeland-claiming people continuously since Biblical times. It dishonors the memory and meaning of the Yishuv s tenacious continuous homeland-claiming presence for Israel s supporters today to be ignorant of it. In recent decades some experts have cited paucity of 10th century BCE archeological evidence to downgrade King David to mere tribal chieftain and the Hebrew Bible to centuries after King David. Electrifying discoveries in 2008 and 2009 support a substantial Jerusalem-based Israelite polity in David s time and literacy even on the Israelites borders that early. These latest discoveries are included in Israel 3000 Years.

But in a world flooded by
