Google "Internet giant Google has changed the tagline on the homepage of its Palestinian edition from 'Palestinian Territories' to 'Palestine'. The change, introduced on 1 May, means now displays 'Palestine' in Arabic and English under Google's logo. Using the word Palestine is controversial for some. Israeli policy is that the borders of a Palestinian state are yet to be agreed." Good but daring move.

Some of your claims are a little strange...

2. ... During this entire time, Jews always lived in Israel even though they were prosecuted by both the Christian crusades and the Muslim hordes.

Other people also lived on that land (Canaanites, hint, hint...).

4. Israel defended the land of Israel against the Assyrians, The Babylonians, the Hellenist empire, the Egyptians, the Romans,

You mean... lost the land to all of them...?

the British

You mean make them go away by terrorist methods even though they would have gone and given you the land anyway, and even though they had been there to protect you?

and the Arabs.

This one last part is correct.

As for 5, I don't know -- it would be so nice if at least the cyberspace was something that we all (all nations, all people) could share together. It comes very close to that now, I just hope it won't change in the future.
