 Jewish cuisine - Enpsychlopedia
The roots of Jewish cooking, however, are in the Middle East, where the Jews came from, and it was heavily influenced by the cuisine of Ancient Egypt and the Byzantine Empire.
Jewish cooks are debarred from using butter in pastries, which are to be eaten in conjunction with meats, and from using milk or cream under the same circumstances.
Smoked salmon is another Jewish delicacy, and this, together with pickled herrings, pickled (yellow) cucumbers, and olives, is often to be seen on Jewish tables as appetizing adjuncts to fried fish. /wiki/Jewish_cuisine

As to the issue of establishing a sovereign Jewish national state, an issue that is distinct from immigration: After the two Jewish-Roman wars and before modern Zionism, with the exceptions of the revolts of A.D. 352 and 555, there were no significant attempts by Jews to establish a sovereign Jewish state in Palestine or elsewhere.
Perhaps a Jewish state in part of Palestine proportionate in size to the percent of population that was Jewish might have been equi-table then.
During the late Roman and Byzantine periods peace prevailed, agriculture was intensively developed and extended to southern areas and a considerable urban development occurred. /America/ch2.html

Jewish presence in their ancient homeland was disrupted in the 2nd century CE as a result of the Bar Kochba Revolt, which induced the Roman Empire to scatter the Jewish people to the four winds and repopulate the region with others.
A Jewish presence was established here early on, and by the time of the Romans was a semi-autonomous community with it's own laws and governing body.
Although the region was never entirely devoid of Jewish residents, for the most part Jews migrated in every direction, ending up in all parts of the Roman and Parthian Empires, and eventually populating centers everywhere in Europe and Asia. /Diaspora.html

Wars between the Jews and Romans: the subjugation of Judaea (63 BCE)

Jewish history is, and always had been, a contentious area of study.

 [ref001] Evaluating Historical Claims [ref002] [ref003]_The_Skeptical_Review_: 1995: Numbe
The Jewish historian Josephus, for example, claimed that during the feast of unleaven bread just before the Jewish-Roman wars, a light so bright shined around the temple altar at the ninth hour of the night that it gave the appearance of "bright day time" for the space of half an hour (_Wars_of_the_Jews_ 6:5.3).
The Roman historian Suetonius, for example, recorded as a fact that while Roman magistrates publicly argued about where to take the body of Julius Caesar to be cremated, two "divine forms" came down with torches and set fire to the bier on which Caesar's body was lying in state (_The_Twelve_Caesars_, Penguin, 1979, p.
He went on to report that a few days after the feast, just before sunset "chariots and troops of soldiers in their armor were seen running about among the clouds and surrounding the city" (_Ibid._). /sr/3claim95.htm

In 66 C.E., Pharisee elements in Jewish brigades in the Galilee engaged Roman centurions in battle sparking a conflict that lasted seven years, the destruction of Jerusalem and the second Temple, again on the 9th of Av in the 70 C.E., and wide enslavement and expulsion of the Jewish population.
By the year 73 C.E., when the last vestiges of Jewish resistance had been vanquished, the Romans had fought their longest and most ruinous war to date.
These two groups constantly debated their subsurvience to Roman rule and what they perceived as an illegitimate dynasty under the Herdion kings. /projects/mandala/TED/hpages/jeruselum/roman.htm   (368 words)

 Josephus (Flavius) Jewish War Summary
Josephus foresaw that God would have taken further divine punishment on the sacrilegious behavior of the Jewish ruffians had the Romans delayed their attacks.
After the war, which lasted from 66 to 73, he retired to Roman exile as a Roman citizen during the reigns of Vespasian (emperor 69-79), his son Titus (79-81), Domitian (81-96), and possibly Nerva (96-98) and Trajan (98-117).
Overall Impression: This is a detailed description of the events leading up to and during the Jewish War of 66-73 CE, not as great as the histories of Herodotus or Thucydides and somewhat self-serving, but nevertheless a fascinating account of this tragic time in Jewish history. /pages/otherbooks/fv_jewishwar.html   (3501 words)

 Wars between the Jews and Romans
This may have been a Jewish success, but it was clear that the Romans would return with a larger army, and many people left Jerusalem, leaving it in the hands of the radicals.
The obvious reason why this incident led to war, was the religious tension between the Jewish populace and the Roman government.
The Romans had paused their attacks for some time, there was a civil war, and at the other end of the empire, the Batavians had revolted, and a new emperor, Julius Sabinus, had been proclaimed in Gaul. /ja-jn/jewish_wars/jwar03.html   (1748 words)

 Flavius Josephus
In the war between the Jews and the Romans of 66-70, the Jewish general Joseph son of Matthias defended Galilee against the Roman legions.
It is no coincidence that the Jewish War ends with a speech of the leader of the rebels at Masada, the Sicarian Eleaser, who more or less admits that all violence was a result of nationalistic agitation and also admits that God is angry.
One of the author's aims is to show that the Jewish culture is older than any other then existing culture; the same idea can be found in the writings of Philo of Alexandria, a Jewish philosopher who lived in the first half of the first century CE. /jo-jz/josephus/josephus.htm   (3152 words)

Most of Herodian buildings and fortifications were erected apparently between 37 and 31 B.C.E. Roman garrison was probably stationed here from 6 to 66 C.E., when, at the outbreak of the Jewish War, Menahem, son of Judah the Galilean, captured Masada at the head of a band of Zealots.
After Menahem was murdered in Jerusalem by Jewish rivals, his nephew Eleazar ben Yair escaped to Masada where he became its "tyrant" until its fall in 73 C.E. During there years Masada served as a place of refuge for all who were in danger of capture.
Masada was Herod's royal citadel and later the last outpost of Zealots during the Jewish Revolt. /g-masada.html   (2782 words)

Raymond F. Surburg writes: "In evaluating the historical worthiness of The Jewish War, it must not be forgotten that the Memoirs are written from a Roman point of view.
The first to be composed was The Jewish War—an account of the war of the Jews against the Romans.
It is the most extensive work on Jewish history in the Greek language with which we are acquainted, and has on that account so retained the lasting favour of Jewish, heathen and Christian readers, as to have been preserved entire in numerous manuscripts. /josephus.html   (824 words)

Nor are they ashamed to overlook the length of the war, the multitude of the Roman forces who so greatly suffered in it, or the might of the commanders, whose great labors about Jerusalem will be deemed inglorious, if what they achieved be reckoned but a small matter.
Moreover, what the Romans did to the remains of the wall; and how they demolished the strong holds that were in the country; and how Titus went over the whole country, and settled its affairs; together with his return into Italy, and his triumph.
For they have a mind to demonstrate the greatness of the Romans, while they still diminish and lessen the actions of the Jews, as not discerning how it cannot be that those must appear to be great who have only conquered those that were little. /j/josephus/works/war-pref.htm   (1049 words)
