    There never was a land correctly called "Palestine" in all of world history. There was a Land of Israel though that the Roman Empire renamed to "Syria Philistinia" to spite the tenacious Jewish defense of their land by invoking one of their ancient enemies, the Philistines, that settled in the Gaza area from across the Mediterranean three thousand years ago. However, there was a land incorrectly called "Palestine" in more recent history as "Syria Philistinia" got shortened and mistranslated to that name instead of "Philistine". Anybody with a grade school education can follow that, what's your excuse? What was your mythical, ancient "Palestine" currency called, shekels? What was your "Palestine" king named, David? What was the capital city there called, Jerusalem or Al Quds?
