Does anybody know the real history of Israel? Actually Israel was dispersed in 721 BC by the Assyrians and was scattered into all the nations. Judah was kept in tact but later dispersed in 70 AD and regathered in 1948. The world was surprised that the new nation was not named Judea which would have been a more accurate name than Israel. Israel, according to the Biblical prophets is yet to be regathered in the last days before the Messiah of Israel comes.
