In your opinion, historically, would the Jewish Diaspora have survived millenia if they were clustered into 2 countries instead of having the strategic advantage of being spread out over many places?

In your opinion, historically, would the Jewish Diaspora have survived millenia if they were clustered into 2 countries instead of dispersed over a very large area of the known (at that time) world?

Decentralization has been a significant strategic advantage to the historical Jewish Diaspora community as well as modern Israel itself.

Post-WW2, and increasingly so, the Jewish Diaspora has been focused into 2 major countries (USA and Israel). This centralized strategy of ‘most eggs into few baskets’ is relatively new to the Jewish community as whole.

What do you think would have been the outcome for the Jewish community if this 2-country centralization had happened earlier in history? How would this have impacted the Jewish Diaspora? Would it have survived without this strategic advantage?
