    "... There was this one Roman who by essence of being the speaker of the House Of Rome, the mighty Republican Empire of ancient times, declared our land as far as the eye can see to be called, 'Syria Philistinia', or simply 'Palestine' for those of you who have a hard time with Latin, little one." Question from the five year old child listening in bed, "But Baba, 'Philistinia' should translate to "Philistine', not 'Palestine', right? But you say we're called 'Palestinians" and wouldn't the Roman mean we are actually Philistines?" "Yes, yes son, you're right, well actually no, that's wrong, ... you know that Roman was a soldier in his day job and received a blow to the head so he meant what I'm er, trying to say to you. Anyhow, the story of our ancient ancestors being great sea-faring people is actually another story for another night. Now tesbahey ala khear little one, and enjoy your sweet dreams of the conquest of the Zionists." ... "But Baba, isn't Zion a mountain in Jerusalem? I heard ..." "HALAS, I said goodnight already!"
