    Just saw Jeopardy, where they referenced Israeli currency--shekels. It's the same currency they had 2000 years ago. And Hebrew is the same language they spoke in that land 2000 years ago. They also celebrate the same national holidays that Jesus observed 2000 years ago (like Passover and Hanukkah). Can the so-called Palestinians make the same claim? No, which is why they try to destroy every archeological artifact on the Temple Mount.

    Shekels were reinvented when Israel was recreated. Both are modern.

    There's no such people as the "Palestinians." They came from Jordan and other countries.

    Perfect example of how to disenfranchise a people. Claim they don’t exist even if they have been there thousands of years.

    The land and people were referred to as Palestine and Palestinian when it was part of the Ottoman empire in the 1800s. As far as I know there were no Jews there yet.

    Are you THAT utterly ignorant? Sheesh.

    Nobody that retarded should be allowed to post.

    Jewish people have lived there for 3500 years. Where the heck do you think the name "Jerusalem" came from, dunce?

    Actually there is a written account of how great an expanse of land the Jews originally owned. You probably have a copy of the book it was written in somewhere in your house, maybe in a closet or a bookshelf. If you don't, you could probably find it in a public library or something.

    Unfortunately, that book doesn't have any pictures in it, because they didn't have cameras back then. So I'll post this one...

    Which is older Judaism or Islam ? And if Jews weren't there before the 1800's. Please Explain why Muslims had to Destroy the Temple that was already on the Temple Mount. Before they could Build their Mosque? Just wondering? You are an idiot !just want to point that out. Not the Temple part, The You're and Idiot part.
