    The Jews would revolt against Rome, with Jerusalem being sacked in 70 CE.

    By this point Israelite/Jews had been living on this land – as Israelites – for over 1,500 years.
    (With their Canaanitic ancestors present likely for thousands of years before that.)

    Only after the defeat of the Bar Kochva Revolt was the region renamed “Palestine” – by the foreign European colonial power.
