If you are so sure that "Palestine", the country was founded many centuries or generations and registered throughout recorded history, I hope you are able to answer the following questions: When was it founded and by whom? What were its borders? What was its capital? What were its major cities? What was the basis of its economy? What was its form of government? Can you cite at least one Palestinian leader before Arafat? Was Palestine recognized by a country whose existence, at that time leaves no room for interpretation? What was the language spoken in the country "Palestine"? What religion which prevailed in the country "Palestine"? What was the name of its currency? Pick a date in the past and answer what was the rate of change of the Palestinian currency against the dollar, yen, franc, etc..? Since there is no such country today, explain why it cease to exist? If you are weeping for the fate of this so-called " Palestine", answer: At what time this country was proud and independent? If the people that you, by deception called as "Palestine" was more than just a collection of people out of Arab countries and if they had had a definite ethnic identity that assures the right of self-determination, why they did not try to be a country independent Arab before the devastating defeat in the Six Day War? I hope you do not confuse Palestinians with Philistines. Change etymology for history will not work.
