Militant Islam has existed since the 7th century! Where have you been?! The First Lebanon War was a reaction to it, not the cause of it. Further, "East Jerusalem" is NOT "Palestine", and never was. Jerusalem only had been divided for 19 years of its history (1948-1967), and that was a political fabrication of the U.N. Partition Plan of 1947. Finally, there was never an independent state of "Palestine" nor an Arab ethnic group of the same name. That, too, is a fabrication of the British during their Mandate period. The term "Palestine" was coined by the Romans in the 2nd century C.E., and included Jordan and Israel. Jordan has an overwhelming "Palestinian" majority, including Queen Rania. So if anyone would like the location of "Palestine", it's on the East Bank, not in "East Jerusalem"!
