While the European Union decides on Turkey's acceptance in the EU, Palestine actually is better qualified to be part of the European Union. You see, it was the European Romans from Italy who first renamed Judah, the historic land of the Jews, "Palaestina" in retribution for the Jewish uprisings against Roman oppression. The Romans coined the word "Palaestina" based on the Philistines, ancient enemies of the Jews who originated from Europe, in Greece. More recently, the European British called the British Mandate Palestine that, after all, was historic Israel, Palestine was borrowed from their European Roman brethren from Italy based on the Greek Philistines. Thus, given its historic European roots, a persuasive case is made for Palestine's acceptance into the European Union. Palestinians are really British Italian Greeks in origin.
