    Mesopotamia is what is now called Iraq, parts of Syria. It is the land of the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers.

    Israel. is on the Mediterranean coast and North and west of Ancient Mesopotamia.

    Close but no cigar.

    Our lustrous Jewish friends are of a race of nomads, wandering around the globe just like their blood relatives the Romani tribes.

    They never had a formal "country" with specific laws, borders, schools, government, sports, construction monuments, currency et cetera, et cetera.

    Their Aramaic based language was a monetary script and it was never meant to be spoken. Modern Hebrew is a made-up tongue and has absolutely nothing to do with the "old" Hebrew.

    Of course they will never agree to this because they cannot process the truth the way we, the people of the West can.

    These lovely people are always ready to throw insults to all the scholars of truth. It s amusing to watch them construct artificial stories about the land of Palestine which was just a stop in their journey around the area.

    Thank you for sharing


    P.S. Please do not use simpleton comments my fellow members, thank you.

    No. Whatever the borders of "Israel" at various times in the past, that area is some hundreds of miles from what was known as Mesopotamia.

    Mesopotamia is approximately in the region of modern Iraq (a country established in the early 1920s.

    Modern Israel (established 1948) is indeed approximately in the region of the area called Israel or The Holy Land in ancient times.

    There is a map on the Wikipedia page that shows the extent of the area of Mesopotamia. It does not include ancient Israel.

    No it's not in Mesopotamia. There is no Mesopotamia, it's now Iraq. But even back when there was a Mesopotamia, Israel was not there. Israel evolved out of what was both Judea and Canaan. And they were where Lebanon, Syria, and of course Israel are located now.

    No, they are not the same location.

    Mesopotamia was the area that is most of Iraq, Kuwait, the eastern parts of Syria, Southeastern Turkey, and regions along the Turkish–Syrian and Iran–Iraq borders.

    Israel is Israel.

    No, though the Mesopotamians conquered Israel plenty of times.

    Israel, in its greater sense Biblically, would include much of Mesopotamia, which is the area around the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. Greater Israel would stretch from the Mediterranean to Mesopotamia. But present-day Israel is along the Mediterranean, not in Mesopotamia.

    By the way, Jewish people still need to believe in Jesus in order to avoid hell, just like everybody.


    Nobody can be good enough to avoid hell. The truth is that death leads to immediate heaven or hell, depending only on whether the person believed in Jesus for eternal life, or not.


    The truth is that Jesus loves you and wants to bless your life freely :) Most of all, Jesus wants you with Him forever, and not in hell. The truth is that every belief except one will lead to eternal torment in the lake of fire for every person. Because nothing pays for our sins except the death and blood of Jesus, the sacrifice of Jesus that is already accomplished by Him . Jesus loves you! The truth is that Jesus is God, and Jesus died on the cross to pay for all of our sins in full, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead. Nothing else pays for our sins, not works, not deeds, not religions. So the only way to heaven and to avoid hell, is by believing in Jesus for eternal life (John 6:47), without adding any of your own works (Romans 4:5). Believe in Jesus to take you to heaven, and you will be in heaven, no matter what, guaranteed. That easy, thanks to Jesus! Tell Jesus that you thank Him that you will be with Him in heaven when you die, because you believe in Jesus! It is too late to be saved, after death
