Mr. Steve Feldman and I published two articles that mirror the sentiments in this piece [particularly the quote "In national terms, Israel is much older, first sovereign in 1020 BCE"].
We would welcome support for the specific idea of creating an annual holiday to celebrate the "establishment" of the ancient state of Israel [on the 10th of Nisan], which Mr. Feldman dubbed "Yom Knisa," short for "Yom Knisa la'aretz" or "The Day of the Entering Into the Land." [Joshua 3:14-17]
