Prussia was the name of the kingdom established in 1701 by the Hohenzollern dynasty, the Electors of Brandenburg. As they weren't allowed to establish new kingdom within the Holy Roman Empire they named the new kingdom after a territory outside the Empire, Prussia, and were crowned in its capital, Koenigsberg (now called Kaliningrad).
'Old Prussia' corresponded roughly to what was East Prussia from 1815-1945. Before the area was colonized by Germans, the population spoke a Baltic language - Prussian. The Kingdom of Prussia established in 1701 covered a large area and only a minority of its inhabitants were descended from former speakers of Prussian.
Because of the long-standing assocoation of the Kingdom of Prussia with military aggression, in 1947 the Allies declared Prussia dissolved. Since then Prussia had ceased to exist, though some people are still sentimentally attached to it.

The descendents of Jacob are Israelites, and Jacob is descended from Abraham, so many of Abraham's descendents are Israelites. HOWEVER, Abraham also had Ishmael, and Isaac (Jacob's father) also had Esau, and the descendents of Ishmael and Esau are not Israelites. So, assuming a similar number of descendents, one would assume that only 1/4 of Abraham's descendents were Israelites.
