For those apostate/false "christians" who want to claim Cyrus as their savior (small "s"): while he did allow the jews to return to their homeland and build a temple (basically he signed a peace accord and recognized them as people of Israel. Yes, the same) what they dont talk about is historically: "It should therefore not surprise us that Cyrus offers sacrifice to the Babylonian gods Marduk and Nabu. This was his way of placating the gods of the lands that he conquered". He didnt release them because he was Jewish or even believed in The one God, he respected all religions, but personally worshiped Marduk, as he was the head god of Babylon, which he conquered and became King of. Babylon, was also surrounded by a huge wall. The only difference I can see between Trump and Cyrus is it seems Cyrus had respect, and showed it, for the people of the lands he ruled. From this Nation being modern day Babylon, giving Jews more Israel (although against what the international law and the original boundaries they agreed to) worshipping a different god, to the wall. Also, his name Cyrus, is actually Kuros. It means "Sun", which some attribute to the god of the sun, Apollo, which we find represented in ancient floor Mosaics found in ancient Synagogues.

Here is a great short article from the Biblical Archaeology Society In which the author raises a simple question: what the neck is a Greek Sun God doing In Jewish Synagogues?
