Jews are Indigenous to the Land of Israel

None of these archaeological relics would have existed if there weren’t an ancient Jewish kingdom within the Land of Israel.

  1. Allen Hertz says:

    Not only are Jews indigenous to the Land of Israel (Eretz Israel), but the Jewish People has aboriginal rights to its ancestral homeland in the same way that the North American Indian bands have aboriginal rights to their tribal lands and the Greek People to Greece. I only offer Rachel Avraham a slight criticism. Namely, she does not seem sensitive to the importance of the particular name that a People gives itself. I doubt whether we can properly speak about the existence of the Jewish People with respect to an earlier time, when the "Jewish" People had yet to specifically self-identify as "Yehudim." This probably means that we can meaningfully speak about a self-identified "Jewish" People with an ethnogenesis some time around the 6th century BCE. Prior to that time, we would have to be referring to the immediate ancestors of the Jewish People. Please go to http://www.allenzhertz.com for an October 2011 posting entitled "Jewish Aboriginal Rights to Israel." This is a juridical and historical essay which examines the Jewish People's rights to Eretz Israel in the light of the political and legal doctrines of aboriginal rights and the self-determination of Peoples. There, the essay is also available in the French, Italian and Chinese languages. Because the Jewish People's claim to Eretz Israel is so strong, there is everything to be gained in being conceptually clear and juridically consistent.

    So the Khazars are indigenous of Israel? Ha!!!

  3. Charlie Hall says:

    While the material here is true, the definition of a Jew is not genetic.

  4. Bella Boc says:

    Palestine has the same definition as California. There is NO such nationality 'Californian'. Of course, 'Palestinian' it's not a nation. Arabs or Jews that live on that territory are Palestinians. The part of territory of Palestine belongs to the STATE OF ISRAEL. Arabs who are citizens of Israel called Israeli. Other Arabs, who called themselves 'Paestinians', have a great opportunity to build their own country. It is outrages, how many billions have been thrown away to help ''poor'' Palestinian Arabs to build their own country. USA, former SSR, Europe, and many other countries tried to help… The truth is: THE STILLBORN CHILD CAN NOT LIVE. Why? Because they don't have their own Real National Idea~~they DON'T HAVE OWN HISTORICAL HERITAGE, only Hatred and Jealousy. Israeli Government has to be firm and give PA any land. Enough is enough. JERUSALEM IS ISRAELI CAPITAL!!!
