You heard if from Helen the Whore and it will be repeated by antisemites later in their thread. Very ignorant antisemites like PF Tinmore will say there were no Israeli nation in ancient times. That they Romans didn't hit the country and displace the people. Other less ignorant, but fully ignorant antisemites will say they Jews were either killed or exciled from Israel after the 2nd great Jewish revolt. Nothing could be further from the truth. Even in the 1800s the Jews were the majority in Jerusalem (Esp East Jerusalem), Tel Aviv was founded in the 1800s and Jewish communities were all over Israel. During the 1800s Israel was sparsely populated. The so called Palestinians of today mostly migrated to the area when the Jews were coming back to their home land during the 1800s and mostly during the British White Paper days. These are facts that only ignorant antisemites will overlook!
