Jesus might have been born in Bethlehem but he was raised in Galilee and lived there.
If born in New Orleans but lived in Texas he be a Texan.
Jews only claim ownership of Jesus as far as the jewish Christians are concerned. But for themselves Jesus has no Davidic lineage and so is one reason they never called him messiah, not to mention calling him an imposter and sourcerer.
Not quite an accurate analogy; whether born in New Orleans, Texas, Milwaukee or French Lick, KY..that person would be an American.
Israel & Judah were separate entities at the time.
Of course most Jewish rabbis claim Jesus was not fully descended from David...it is in their interest to do so... for obvious reasons.
Here is a rundown of the Israeli 2019 election...the Sanhedrin are not even mentioned;
