    It's not a given that the "river of Egypt" is the Nile : it might be a drained out river or another valley bordering Egypt.
    Which is a thing most conspirators about Jews conveniently forget.

    It could have been clearer, like "the River of X, in the land of Egypt".

    Traditionally rabbinical sources have seen the River of Egypt as being the Nile, but the Wadi el-Arish is likely what the writers of Genesis meant.

    Two cantons have the same name. "Paloc"

    Wiki sez that the Palóc are a sub-group of Hungarians, apparently distinct from your common or garden variety Magyar, but still Hungarian speakers. The map also has multiple Romanian cantons.

    There are 4 Romanian Cantons, but all of them are different, since there's a Hungarian, Transylvanian, Bihor, and Sibiu Romanian cantons, whereas the Paloc cantons dont have any labels differentiating them

    Aaeauurgh Bunjevci became a nationality only after 1945, when the Titoists basically started forcing them on gunpoint to write themselves in as Croats or Bunjevci in the census

    And that Croatia-Slavonia won't be able to stay like that - until WW2 like half of it was Serbs too

    A quick mock-up of the greatest possible Israel in accordance with the land promised in Genesis 15:18-21

    - The entire Nile to the source is claimed
    - The Euphrates is claimed
    - Arabia, The Levant and Syria are claimed as the lands of the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, Perizzites, Rephaites, Amorites, Canaanites, Girgashites and Jebusites fall in this area.
    - Most of Turkey is claimed as the land of the Hittites was there.

    On that day the Lord made a covenant with Abram and said, “To your descendants I give this land, from the River of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates— the land of the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, Hittites, Perizzites, Rephaites, Amorites, Canaanites, Girgashites and Jebusites.” - Genesis 15:18-21

    "Right, so you guys can own the Nile, you get a nice big chunk of Egypt, but don't actually like, go there. Or else." -God

    Reconciling the two, it would seem the Wadi El-Arish would be the logical river border then. In which case it is just most of Turkey and all of Arabia promised.

    There are some parts of Jackson's Empire Lost series set in occupied London too.
