They have rarely held land of their own. If they were less insular, spiteful and hostile they would have long since blended with and been absorbed by a host population.

It’s precicely their malevolent cunning that has kept them alive but separate for millennia. People who can coexist end up merging together naturally, Americans of European descent have blended genes from many European peoples.

Jews have remained of seperate identity because they always hold others with contempt and jealousy; no matter how thoroughly they spread woe and usurp control they never manage to build anything lasting beyond a dusty wall in the Middle East.

Actually the Wailing wall is what's left of Fort Antonious, a Roman fort. The temple was destroyed in 70 AD.

And below ground there are remains of an even older megalithic temple that predates the Jews.

When Jesus said, not a single stone of this place will remain standing, he wasn't lying.
