"There has been (is) no state which tried to learn and practice the Israeli model of "ruling by the WORD of the LORD,": let me finish this excerpt by adding, and has been successful in continuing to do so. EXACTLY!

Neither did any post Christian society which tried to model a 'Christian' (ie. Puritans practiced a limited form of Christianity) only set of guidelines successfully maintain their status. I will explain this later, but will express a more compelling circumstance of another of your contentions.

Now, whether or not there are 'pure Jews' left in the world is something I will not conjecture about, for I will resort to letting Almighty God determine who is Hebrew and who is not. The Hebrew Holy Bible maintains that a remnant remain to Him for His purposes, and I will trust Him on that.

'Palestinian' Muslims and Christians are not Biblically entitle to call themselves 'Chosen people of God' in the same way that Almighty God refers to the descendents of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. It is just plain not there.

I would differ that the Soviet Union had good relations with Israel, for if it were so, then there would not be a person of Hebrew heritage left desiring 'aliyah' in the former Soviet Empire. In any event, I do not remember the Soviets selling Mig 25's to Israel, but to Syria and others instead. I already mentioned the Pahlavi's.

As for the other empires, determine in truth which exist in their original form today and answer your own question.
