Not to put to fine a point on it but...................

Pilot found no fault with Jesus and was willing to turn him loose. He
gave the Israelis the choice of Jesus or a murderer. The Israelis
chose a murderer to go free. The Romans carried out the wishes of the
Israelis.


Your 'fine point' is way off point. There was no Israel (or Israelis)
in that time period. The earlier Kingdom of Israel was long gone and a
persistent nation by that name did not reappear until the 20th century.
The Jewish Nation was Judea, and during Jesus' lifetime it was the Roman
Province of Judea.

Yes, I know it says 'Israel' in your modern PC-edited English-language
version of the Gospels and such, but your book is (gasp!) wrong.
