    The word "Palestine" conjurs up images of an ancient biblical place dating back to the earliest civilizations in history. In fact, Palestine is an English word that is a fairly recent invention created by Europeans after collapse of the 400 year old Ottoman Empire in World War I when Great Britain took possession of the land from the Ottoman Turks who surrendered it.

    Thus, it comes as no surprise that Palestine is never mentioned in the Hebrew Bible, Christian Bible nor even the Quran. Palestine appears on no ancient historical documents nor any archaeological artifacts.

    Cambridge University's book division explains further...

    Cambridge University Press---
    The Brits invented "Palestine" based on the Romans, also Europeans, who after occupying Israel and Judaea, the actual historical homeland of the Jewish People, changed the name to the Latin "Palaestina" in retribution for the Jewish uprisings against their Roman oppressors. Palaestina was based on the Philistines who were ancient enemies of the Jews. The Philistines originated from Greece, known as the Sea Peoples referring to the Mediterranean Sea. The same Romans infamous for feeding Christians to the lions.

    Thus, funny enough, today's so-called Palestinians, who, after all, are really Arabs, base their identity on an English and Latin word [Palestine, Palaestina] that describes a Greek people [Philistines] There is absolutely nothing "Palestiniain" about Palestine nor Palestinians!

    Israel is mentioned over 2000 times in the Bible.

    The British fashioned themselves inheritors of the Roman Empire and paid tribute to them by renaming Israel, too, "Palestine" to denote the land of Israel under their British Mandate that ended in 1948. After termination of the British Mandate and Israeli statehood in '48, Palestine ceased to exist replaced by the rightful name of Israel that dates back over 3000 years.

    Eminent Middle East historian and scholar Bernard Lewis sums it up...
    Guy Milliere, Eminent Professor of History and Political Science, Sorbonne, Paris, puts the final point on the matter...

    Since Palestine is a European invention, if the Pallies get a terrorist state, it should definitely become a member of the EU. The Eurotrash deserve nothing less. :clap2:

    Can you produce an archaeological record of an ancient Palestine dating back 3000 years, stupid twat? No, I didn't think so.:lol:
    Your maps are merely based on the British invention of "Palestine" and the Roman invention of "Palaestina" You don't read too well, dummy.

    Intresting subject, the nationalist population of Ireland will fly the flag of Palestine in the north of Ireland and the unionist/loyalist population flag the flag of Israel in response, the flag of N.I does include the Star of David which does indeed kick things off. Palestine and Israel have indeed existed for thousands of years and their symbols were /are used by the Roman empire, the nazis, the British and the Irish.
    This might make intresting reading... http://jahtruth.net/uflag.htm
