Prior to the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, the last great fight for the Jewish homeland took place in the early second century C.E., led by Simon Bar Kochba against the Roman legions of Emperor Hadrian. The revolt was famously supported by Rabbi Akiva, and initial Jewish victories actually established the last independent Jewish regions in ancient Israel. After three years of fighting, the Romans vanquished the Jews in 135 C.E., beginning the 2,000-year exile.
