Deuteronomy Chapter 26
2 That thou shalt take of the first of all the fruit of the earth, which thou shalt bring of thy land that the LORD thy God giveth thee, and shalt put it in a basket, and shalt go unto the place which the LORD thy God shall choose to place his name there.
3 And thou shalt go unto the priest that shall be in those days, and say unto him, I profess this day unto the LORD thy God, that I am come unto the country which the LORD sware unto our fathers for to give us.
5 And thou shalt speak and say before the LORD thy God, A Syrian ready to perish was my father, and he went down into Egypt, and sojourned there with a few, and became there a nation, great, mighty, and populous:
12 When thou hast made an end of tithing all the tithes of thine increase the third year, which is the year of tithing, and hast given it unto the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, that they may eat within thy gates, and be filled;
13 Then thou shalt say before the LORD thy God, I have brought away the hallowed things out of mine house, and also have given them unto the Levite, and unto the stranger, to the fatherless, and to the widow, according to all thy commandments which thou hast commanded me: I have not transgressed thy commandments, neither have I forgotten them:
14 I have not eaten thereof in my mourning, neither have I taken away ought thereof for any unclean use, nor given ought thereof for the dead: but I have hearkened to the voice of the LORD my God, and have done according to all that thou hast commanded me.

Israel does not belong to Syria. The Jewish PEOPLE are Syrians. They may have come from a Hebrew Abraham,and Abraham's wife was not from Syria,she was a Chaldean from Babylon, but Issac's wife Rebecca was Syrian. That makes Jacob half Syrian,and all of Jacob's boys came from four Syrian women.-Gen.29-31. Rachael was Syrian. God gave the land to Abraham a Chaldean not Syria.

It is written, "And thou shalt speak and say before the LORD thy God, A SYRIAN ready to perish was my FATHER, and he went down into EGYPT, and sojourned there with a few, and became there a NATION, great, mighty, and populous" (Deuteronomy 26:5). On the other hand it is also written, "And God said unto him, Thy name is JACOB: thy name shall not be called any more Jacob, but ISRAEL shall be thy name: and he called his name Israel. And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a NATION and a company of NATIONS shall be of thee, and KINGS shall come out of thy loins" (Genesis 35:10-11). Those are the writings about SYRIAN becoming a NATION and ISRAEL becoming NATION AND A COMPANY OF NATIONS where KINGS came out.
