There is no place on earth that is named Palestine.


Putting aside that the place and people Philistines and Philistia are mentioned more than 250 times in the Hebrew Bible, it is also mentioned continuously in other sources for thepast 14,000 years.

Of course there is a place called Palestine. There is also Kurdistan, Tibet, the Basque country, Quebec, etc. I disagree with the politically correct term occupied Palestine. But that doesn't mean Israel shouldn't give back the West Bank in return for a Peace Treaty guaranteeing the cessation of attacks on Israel.

Strong's Concordance translates Philistine (H6428) 288 times and Palestina, Philistia, Philistine, Palestine a total of eight times (H6429).

And where did the Philistines come from? What is their history? Why do they have a greater claim to the land than the nation of Israel?

So where are modern day Judea and Samaria? Those places are referenced in the Bible as well? Why aren't the residents of those regions referred to as Judeans and Samaritans instead of Palestinians? The terms are more accurate.

Your entire argument is based on some arbitrary lines drawn on a map as of a specific date. The specific date is the only thing that separates your map from all others. You recognize changes in those arbitrary lines at other locations after your specific date in history. That is what makes your prejudice so obvious. You have argued for different rules applying to one country than you have allowed other countries.
