The Future King Is Coming

When I first saw this report in the Jerusalem Post, I thought it was about the Jewish messiah:

But it's about the future king of England.

Then I noticed that Israeli newspapers seem to say very little about the coming of their messiah. In fact, that term (messiah) appears to be associated mainly with the beliefs and expectations of Christians.

So, if (as some say) Israel is to be a nation for Jews, what about the Jewish messiah? Does that concept still mean anything to them, or has it been tossed out along with the other parts of the Bible/Torah they don't like (e.g., the observation of jubilee)?
