In the past 3000 years there were only 276 years of no wars amongst nations.

ההיסטוריונים רושמים כי במשך שלושת אלפי שנה האחרונות של ההיסטוריה, לפי כותבי קורות הימים העתיקים, היו רק מאתים שבעים ושש שנים בלי שום מעשי איבה ומלחמה בין האומות זו לזו

  • It would have been nice if the article you linked would have cited a source for that claim other than "the historians," but oh, well.
