Apparently, Benjamin Netanyahu gave an interview and was asked about Israel's occupation of Arab lands.

His response was "It's our land". The reporter (CNN or the like) was stunned - read below "It's our land..." It's important information since we don't get fair and accurate reporting from the media and facts tend to get lost in the jumble of daily events.

1. Nationhood and Jerusalem. Israel became a nation in 1312 BCE, Two thousand years before the rise of Islam.

2. For over 3,300 years, Jerusalem has been the Jewish capital Jerusalem has never been the capital of any Arab or Muslim entity. Even when the Jordanians occupied Jerusalem, they never sought to make it their capital, and Arab leaders did not come to visit.

3. Since the Jewish conquest in 1272 BCE, the Jews have had dominion over the land for one thousand years with a continuous presence in the land for the past 3,300 years.

Would you like more historical facts?

I don't think your getting it. There is a huge difference between the history of a name and the history of a people. What today's so-called Palestinians are doing is a creating a false identity. They claim they have lived on this land since the before the Jews. They claim they are a separate group of people with their own culture, customs, and history. None of that is true.


Studies in genetics show that some Jews and some Palestinians are descended from the peoples who lived there over 2000yrs ago.The only thing that claims the land is exclusively for the Jews (Hebrews) is a book!

If you wanna believe that all Palestinians are of Arab descent then you have to take into account that those people have lived on that land since the 7th century AD! But I guess to you 1500yrs means nothing at all.


Please read my post, above.

Data and archaeological evidence I've seen indicates the Canaanites were in the region since about 3000BC, and whose lands corresponds to present-day Lebanon and coastal parts of Israel and Syria. That puts them about 300 years BEHIND the Jewish presence; not before.
