    Jordan is Palestine and Palestine is Jordan "The truth is that Jordan is Palestine and Palestine is Jordan," said King Hussein of Jordan, in 1981. "Palestine and Jordan are one..." said King Abdullah in 1948. According to Arab-American columnist Joseph Farah, "Palestine has never existed - before or since - as an autonomous entity. It was ruled alternately by Rome, by Islamic and Christian crusaders, by the Ottoman Empire, and briefly by the British after World War I. The British agreed to restore at least part of the land to the Jewish people as their homeland. There was no language known as Palestinian. There was no distinct Palestinian culture. There has never been a Palestine governed by the Palestinians. Palestinians are Arabs, indistinguishable from Jordanians (another recent invention), Syrians, Lebanese, Iraqis, etc."
