I dont believe your timeline of names and inhabitants of the region really served any purpose. I never disputed any of the things you say......all I was doing was stating to Jackie that the name "Palaistina" was in place for almost 6 centuries prior to when she said it was. I believe your statement even supports mine. I happen to also believe, as you do, that we need to deal with this whole situation in terms of modern day facts on the ground, instead of as an ancient land dispute. When the leaders of the PA and Israel move out of the dark ages and into our way of thinking then and only then will we see a real and lasting solution.
