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 Palestine appears on no ancient historical documents nor any archaeological artifacts.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---
In Ottoman times, no political entity called Palestine existed. After the collapse of the Ottoman Empire at the end of the First World War, European boundary makers began to take greater interest in defining territorial limits for Palestine. Only since the 1920s has Palestine had formally delimited boundaries, though these have remained subject to repeated change and a source of bitter dispute.
Palestine Boundaries 1833–1947 - Cambridge Archive Editions
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...
The adjective Palestinian is comparatively new. This, I need hardly remind you, is a region of ancient civilization and of deep-rooted and often complex identitites. But, Palestine was not one of them. People might identify themselves for various purposes, by religion, by descent, or by allegiance to a particular state or ruler, or, sometimes, locality. But, when they did it locally it was generally either the city and the immediate district or the larger province, so they would have been Jerusalemites or Jaffaites or Syrians, identifying province of Syria

The constitution or the formation of a political entity called Palestine which eventually gave rise to a nationality called Palestinian were lasting innovations of the British Mandate
Guy Milliere, Eminent Professor of History and Political Science, Sorbonne, Paris, puts the final point on the matter...
No one had heard of a Palestinian people before the mid-1960s. They did not exist. Israel under the British Mandate until Israel' s Independence in 1948 was called Palestine. All Jews who were born there until i948 had the word « Palestine » stamped on their passports. The current Palestinians are those Arabs who, for a variety of reasons, decided to leave the land during the 1947 War of Independence, when five countries – Jordan, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon and Iraq – attacked the 600,000 people in the fledgling state of Israel the day after its birth, hoping to kill it in the crib.

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.

Harvard Semitic Museum: The Houses of Ancient Israel
In archaeological terms The Houses of Ancient Israel: Domestic, Royal, Divine focuses on the Iron Age (1200-586 B.C.E.). Iron I (1200-1000 B.C.E.) represents the premonarchical period. Iron II (1000-586 B.C.E.) was the time of kings. Uniting the tribal coalitions of Israel and Judah in the tenth century B.C.E., David and Solomon ruled over an expanding realm. After Solomon's death (c. 930 B.C.E.) Israel and Judah separated into two kingdoms.

Israel was led at times by strong kings, Omri and Ahab in the ninth century B.C.E. and Jereboam II in the eighth. In the end, however, Israel was no match for expansionist Assyria. Samaria, the Israelite capital, fell to the Assyrians in 722 B.C.E.

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

We've a much better map. It is Sebastian Munster's one, first appeared in Munster's "Geographia" of 1540, and a palisimian palisturd Nablus of today on it is called by its original cool hebrew name Shchem, and hebrew names of towns and places everywhere, and no, no palisimians around! A good map by a decent man, not all that palistanian agitprop drivel, delusions and garbage.

Maps are not archaeological evidence, twat. Anyone can produce a map on a computer. :lol:

You haven't dug up an ancient civilization of Palestine? Keep digging, dumb motherfucker! :lol:

Israel dates back to at least 1200 BCE..

Oops, no people named Myanmarians in history.
Does this mean that the country is up for grabs?
First rule of property law: First in time, First in right.

Jews established sovereignty over Israel dating back 3000 years. Fakestinians are from Arabia and were invented in the mid-20th century.

PBS Nova...
In the banks of the Nile in southern Egypt in 1896, British archaeologisit Flinders Petrie unearthed one of the most important discoveries in biblical archaeology known as the Merneptah Stele. Merneptah's stele announces the entrance on the world stage of a People named Israel.

The Merneptah Stele is powerful evidence that a People called the Israelites are living in Canaan over 3000 years ago

Dr. Donald Redford, Egyptologist and archaeologist: The Merneptah Stele is priceless evidence for the presence of an ethnical group called Israel in Canaan.
