Those Jews became an entity there many years before , later on they 
were forced out.

A Holy-Land centered tradition persisted in Diaspora thought and 
writing. This tradition may be called "proto-nationalist" because 
there was no nationalism in the modern sense in those times. It was 
not only religious or confined to hoping for messianic redemption, 
but consisted of longing for the land of Israel. It is preserved in 
the poetry of Yehuda Halevi, a Spanish Jewish physician, poet and 
philosopher, who himself immigrated to "the Holy Land" and died 
there in 1141.
