    There are more writings older than the 19th century about the people know as "Palestinians" than you ever imagined, and which, obviously, you have never read. During time of Biblical references to Canaan, the land was also know as "Palestine." Herodotus in 5th century B.C referred to the land as Syria and Palestine. Inscription of Egyptian temple Habu (Ramses III) refers to bound Palestinians. Assyrian emperor Sargon II referred to land as Pilist, linguistic equivalent of Palestine. Thutmos II 1492-1479 B.C campaigned in Palestinian. In 7th century, Byzantine docs referred to Palestine. When the Israelites crossed the river Jordan into Canaan, the land was inhabited, among others, by three semite nations: Amorites, Hittites and Jebusites. The Jebusites had already built Jerusalem and inhabited it for 100 years after the Israelites arrived. In the academic world, many notable scholars and historians are convinced the Jebusites are the forbears of Palestinians.
