So what if they were descended from some guy named Israel? Most of us descended from someone with a name. My family descended from a guy named Augustine. I'm not sure what your point is unless you are trying to infer that for some reason, Jewish people are a special tribe of some sort and therefore are set apart from the rest of their cousins and deserve some special dispensations. Is that what you are espousing cause that's nuts. No one knows where the Jews came from. We know they were never in Egypt, we know there was no great exodus of some sort, most of their tribal lore is bs, especially the bible part, there was no Moses, no Abraham, no Leah, no Adam and no Eve. That should make my position clear.
