With the national borders where they are today, What country would jesus have been born in?

I realise Jesus would have been middle eastern, but im not sure what nationality.

Bethlahem is where?
And did its name change or did it turn to ruin?

The Bethlehem of Jesus' day would have been in the Roman ruled province of Judaea.

Before then the area would have been known as The Kingdom of Judah, one of the successor states to the "United Monarchy", often known as the Kingdom of Israel (sometimes referred to as the Southern Kingdom of Israel to distinguish it from the Northern Kingdom of Israel).

And today Bethlehem is under the administration and military control of the Palestinian National Authority.

So as to Jesus's nationality, I suppose you could argue with equal force that he could be considered either an Israeli or a Palestinian, maybe both.

Good point, the Bible describes Jesus as a Nazarene and Nazareth as his childhood home - and Nazareth is, as you said, part of modern day Israel.

Born in the Roman Province of Judea. The City of Bethlehem as the Bible foretold.

(Mic 5:2 [KJV])
But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah,[though] thou be little among the thousands of Judah,[yet] out of thee shall he come forth unto me [that is] to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth [have been] from of old, from everlasting.

(Luke 2:15 [KJV])
And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

(Luke 2:16 [KJV])
And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

He was of the line of King David a Jew.

(Matt 2:1 [KJV])
Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

(Matt 2:2 [KJV])
Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

He was born in what was called, at that time, Palaestina (Philistine).

It was called Judea at the time of Christ Jesus birth. And He was born in Bethlehem. Not Nazareth. It's all in the Bible.

In AD70 Jerusalem was destroyed by the Roman general Titus as he crushed a revolt by the Jewish people, and Rome was moved to rename the Promised Land “Palestina.” The name "Palestine" was officially introduced in the period after 138AD

This may be a dumb question, but was that Titus Shakespeare's "Titus Andronicus"?

WHY IS THERE NO CONTEMPORARY EVIDENCE OF JESUS?

It is important to recognize that in 70 A.D., the Romans invaded and destroyed Jerusalem and most of Israel, slaughtering its inhabitants. Entire cities were literally burned to the ground! We should not be surprised, then, if much evidence of Jesus' existence was destroyed. Many of the eye-witnesses of Jesus would have been killed. These facts likely limited the amount of surviving eyewitness testimony of Jesus.

Considering the fact that Jesus' ministry was largely confined to a relatively unimportant backwater area in a small corner of the Roman Empire, a surprising amount of information about Jesus can be drawn from secular historical sources.

"Jesus and Christianity were made up by the Jews to get back at the Romans and to secure control of Israel for the Jewish people. "

Bingo !!

That's the NWO in a Nutshell, boiled down to it's common denominator...
