    World power and victorious Rome renamed the Land of Israel iwith satanic spite 1900 years ago to Syria Philistinia due to the Jews tenacious defense of their land against the legions at that time. Through history this term got shortened and falsely translated to "Palestine" in English and the more recent nomadic Arabs living there eventually referred to themselves as "Palestinians". An accurate translation of the original Roman decree towards the land would be "Philistine" and those non-Jews claiming some period of residence there but coveting the whole hisorical land in their fairy-tale fatwas supporting imperial Islam would then face a dilemna as they certainly couldn't and wouldn't call themselves "Philistines", not having a strand of DNA evidence to verify this ancient connection. Islam has already more than enough large conquered lands to forcibly call home and the Jews have only one small one, but as Israel's track record over the last 64 years have borne out, good things do indeed come in small packages!
