News and Commentary on Arab Women, Palestine, Cultural Politics, and Everything in Between
Silly post. At that time "Palestine" was still considered a Jewish entity - before Arabs took it as their own after 1920's.In fact, this map is from the 1700's, as the book "Palaestina ex monumentis veteribus illustrata" by Adriaan Reland. The book shows that before the influx of European Jews and Arabs from Syria and Egypt Jews were, by far, the majority of the Palestinian population. This wasn't an attack on Israel, support for an Arab state or anything like that.
not as silly as your comment.
