Oh, that's fun.  Let's see how the nincompoop explains that one!

I'll add in a contribution, first quoting him:

EVERY reference to Ioudaios is to Jews, he says.  Let him enjoy:
  Romans 1:16

                                                     ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

followed by Romans 2:9-10

Yes, all these references are to Ioudaios.  Rather than trust in King
James, I pulled out a Greek Bible.  Note the opposition Jew/Gentile.
No "Israelites" in this story.

The nincompoop also has not explained Galatians.  Note that he
recently claimed that the 12 apostles were Israelites.  He now has to
contend with Paul explicitly saying that some of them were Ioudaios

Galatians 2:
>[9] And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision.

No Israelites in this chapter either.
