The lack of fulfilment of the biblical promises is underscored by an excellent quote from Joseph Klausner:
But what was the actual fact? Slavery to foreign governments, wars, tumults and torrents of blood. Instead of all nations being subject to Judah, Judah was subject to the nations. Instead of the “riches of the Gentiles,” godless Rome exacted taxes and tribute … Instead of the Gentiles “bowing down with their faces to the ground” and “licking the dust of their feet,” comes a petty Roman official with unlimited power of Judea. Instead of Messiah the son of David, comes Herod the Edomite (Jesus of Nazareth [trans. Herbert Danby; London: Allen & Unwin, 1969], 169-170)
