    Jews were known as Palestinians during the British Mandate prior to Israeli statehood. So, who are your Palestinians? :lol:

    So, your Palestinians are merely garden variety Arabs, after all, originating from Arabia like all other Arabs. Check.

    Say, for instance, they drew an east/west line from Jordan to the Med, running through Bethlehem (arbitrary choice for the purposes of the question). The totality of the land in the north is now Israel. The south, Palestine.

    Would this be, in effect, no different than the 1948 creation of Israel?
    An arbitrary division of land, by a collection of self appointed decision makers, the results of which are imposed on the folks who actually live on the land.

    My grandparents are from England, Germany, and Scotland.

    Does that mean I am not American?

    The Bible mentions Israel 2000 times---Was the Bible written in 1948?

    Nope, but the modern, secular, political state of Israel was.
    But you knew that.
