An excellent post of yours! Only thing I have a problem with is that you say:
'..."Judah" and the "House of Judah" refer to the Palestinian population where Judaism has its roots...'
You make it sound as if Judaism sprang to life quite innocently from the very grass-roots of "the Palestinian population". You cannot really mean that, can you?
Must not the roots of "Judaism" after all be found among the ruling elite of the Assyrian/Babylonian/Canaanite/Egyptian/Hellene/Etc world? Among the very builders of civilization as we know it? Among the brains behind it all, the writers of both history and the future to come? The spellbinders?
