    The article was confusing at the end. There were too many places to destroy to erase history. The article implies that we are dealing with a huge, extensive culture that has has had a major documented historical presence and that should have recorded in all major historical texts before the creation of the State of Israel. Where is Palestinian history documented - it must have been a consipiracy on the part of the West to obliterate it before Israel. Where exactly is Palestine? Why isn't Jordan called Palestine. It was before the 1948 war. The term Palestine never used except by the Romans and then not again until the British came. Did Palestine actually exist? Was Palestine just an extension of Arab culture. Shouldn't Jordan be full of Palestinian ruins and history of the alleged great civilization? But then with the finaly return of a unified Arab/Jewish Palestine/Israel State - the Jews will not, definetly, ever have existed.
