Where are the posts to which you refer where I am supposed to be recreating history? Firstly, you should reread Mark Twain's work (if the man wanted to call himself that, let him, and yes, I took English literature over fifty years ago and know the story of "mark two" in the level of the Mississippi and besides, how many people say that Eric Arthur Blair wrote "1984" and that Amandine Aurore Lucile Dudevant nee Dupin wrote "Valentine" and what is "Hunh?" supposed to signify, that a troglodyte helped write the post?). Aside from the nonsequiturs, please explain what rewriting history has to do with my mentioning Vladimir "Zeev" Jabotinsky's work as proof that the word "Palestinian" and "Palestine" exists in print before the 1960's. No one has broached that subject in reply to my posts. No one has explained why Mark, I mean, Samuel Langhorne (you omitted his middle name--shame, shame, naughty is your name!)Clemens mentions in "Innocents Abroad" the fertility of Nablus (I mean, Shechem, stronghold of Samaritans, who were anathemized by Jews, but you know the history of the schism, the Babylonian captivity, the settling of Israel with Babylonians and Assyrians--there goes the pedigree!), the dark soil, the trees. It is not all black and white. And yet you accuse my post of talking about Palestinian culture, etc., none of which you can prove. Go back to my post, show where I wrote about Palestinian culture and history. That is for another post. To resume: the word exists, there are maps from 1930's textbooks which have Palestine, not Israel, clearly indicated, we have an old world globe with Palestine, not Israel on it, my sister's godmother left from the refugee camps in Europe where we living at the time for Palestine in 1949, we have the photographs which she signed and dated, there are photos with her and natives, coffee, costumes, pottery, donkeys and all. I have grown up (since 1943) hearing the name Palestine and no one can change that, not even Jonathan.
