    Israel's greatest mistake was to make peace offferings to the Palestinian squatters, build a security fence & concede land to them so they can remain in Israel. No Arab country, who know the Palestinians best, ever treated them like Israel does. When will Israel ever learn from Jordan how to establish a lasting peace from the Palestinians?

    For some people, accepting documented history is too painful. Perhaps that is why they prefer an attempt to re-write it in their own minds. I once knew a lady who said "there was no Israel until 1948." I was so astonished with her belief that I could only reply ---yes, that is when they became the Israelites.

    That would be a coin minted by the British ca. 1937 under the British Mandate. The British are from Europe. Not exactly ancient and virtually worthless, dunce. :badgrin: :clap2:

    Go sit in the dunce corner.

    Try 1927, it says so right next to the name Palestine, (in Arabic the P is pronounced like B)
    I would recommend collecting current Israeli coins, as the day will come when people deny that israel ever existed

    Palestine is an English and Latin word, dunce. There is no letter p in Arabic so palesteeenians, who are Arabs, can't even write their own invented identity in their own native Arabic language :badgrin:

    Stay in the dunce corner.
