"In the past," ... tell me why?


In the past ...
Why did not the Jews "real state" throughout the ages?
Why did not enter the Jews against "Muslims or Christians" in the real battles?
Why do Jews still "homeless" to the now "almost"?

I'm not talking about now ...!!!
Everyone knows that America helped Israel...!
I'm talking about the past and recent past.

Part of the problem seems to have been just the result of accidents of history. The Roman Empire prevented Jews from establishing their own state; then when the Roman Empire converted to Christianity, then same thing happened. Then the Islamic powers did the same thing. My guess is that Jews, for religious reasons, would not have wanted a state anywhere other than in the general area that now constitutes Israel.  My understanding also is that many Orthodox Jews did not believe that a Jewish state should be established.  Chaim Potok's novel The Chosen deals with this issue in very interesting ways. Some conservative Jews were (and still are) opposed to Zionism.

The Jews have also been, as a group, singled out over and over again.  The way I understand your question it seems a little anti-Semitic, but I will give you the benefit of the doubt.  One of the reason the Jewish population has been so spread out is because it has so often been a target.

Since the second century, and for some, long before, Jews have been a diasporic people, which means that they have been scattered around the Middle East and the western world. In practice, this meant that they were minorities almost everywhere, which precluded their forming a state.

Are you asking why no state/county was all-Jewish the way some states were all Christian or all Muslim?  I suppose that would be because the Jews lacked political and military power.  You can only make a state of your own if you are able to force people to allow you control over a given area.

If I understand your question correctly, you are asking why the Jews as a group were so different from other nations in their habits and practices. One of the the interesting aspects about Jews is that they have not been linked with a nation specifically since the creation of Israel after WWII. This has meant that their identity has been very different and very much focused on their status as a wandering people who have suffered immense persecution throughout the years.

I think that all this because of the "anger of God on the Jews."
is this true??!!
