    Learn something. There was never in history any state called Palestine governed by Palestinians. Tell us when did it ever belong to Palestinians? Answer Never. It was never a Pal land to begin with, so your question is invalid.The Palestinians never governed or controlled any land before 1993. To make it simple, please tell me one Palestinian President before 1948? Keep thinking. The Palestinians want a capital, which they never had, in a country that never existed. The Palestinians have nothing to do with the name Palestine. The name Palestine is named after the Philistines, not the Palestinians or any Arab group. The name Palestine was applied by the Romans against the Jews to destroy the name Israel. It was certainly not directed or bestowed to the Arabs in this area. The Philistines were from Crete and came to Israel 3000 years ago and were not Arabs or Muslims. Delilah and Goliath were Philistines. (Philistines died out.) Philistine is the name the Romans renamed Israel as a chagrin against the Jews. Yassir Arafat was not a Philistine, but an ARAB born in Egypt. Philistine originates from the Hebrew verb Palash, which means to invade. So the Arabs who started to call themselves Palestinians in the late 60's are invaders and they want to create an Invadia state.

Which foods make you fat? The answer is in your gut
