Is that any way to show gratitude?

'According to the Hebrew Bible, there were three deportations of Jews to Babylon: the exile of King Jeconiah, his court and many others in Nebuchadnezzar's eighth year; Jeconiah's successor Zedekiah and the rest of the people in Nebuchadnezzar's eighteenth year; and a later deportation in Nebuchadnezzar's twenty-third year. These are attributed to 597 BCE, 587 BCE, and 582 BCE, respectively.

The forced exile ended in 538 BCE after the fall of Babylon to the Persian king Cyrus the Great, who gave the Jews permission to return to Yehud province and to rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem.[3]'

So why is it the avowed ambition for everyone else in that dysfunctional retarded region to wipe the state of Israel off the map eradicating them in the process.

Come on I'd like to hear an answer to the conundrum YOU started here.

Well, I'm convinced! After all, if a poster links to Wikipedia, the "people's encyclopedia", then nothing else need be said.

What the hell does the modern state of iran have to do with its regional incarnation from over 2000 years ago? Should we all bail out greece due to the debt we owe them for classical thought?

Also your accusation that "the jews" want to bomb iran borders on hate speech and shouldn't be tolerated.

Ummm - if you think that the modern state of Iran bears any similarity to the ancient Persian Empire - you have lots of study ahead of you.

The better question would be, "Why the hell does the old Persian empire want to launch missiles at modern Israel?"

Hm, true. Let's go bomb England, Germany, Japan, etc. Since we were once at war with all of them.

The locale is the same - but in that regard, what does the current state of Israel have in common with the ancient states of Israel and Judah?
