Pete, if you know so much, you must also know that the old Palestina was equivalent to "Philistia," and that both Greek and Roman historians, long after Herodotus, knew the area as "Judaea." And that the name "Palaestina" was in fact re-introduced by Hadrian, although there was no longer a corresponding Philistine nation. The Philistines were mostly illiterate pagan proto-Greek sea-peoples. Not Arabs. When they mixed with the Canaanites, the Phoenicians were produced. No Arabs ever called themselves "Palestinian" under the Ummayads, or Abbasids. And with a two thousand-plus year hiatus in the existence of an identity, it can't be the same identity, even if the name is reintroduced and applied to a new group. In any event, what's going on now should be dealt with according to current realities, not ancient pedigrees. And that goes for both sides.
