Palestinians Named for Philistines by Alexander the Great Who May Have Heard Story of David & Goliath But Changed It


Apparently Alexander the Great circa 340 b. c. when he conquered in the Levant heard the story of the Israelite shepherd boy (later king) David and Goliath of the Philistines, a tribe which disappeared from history about three hundred years before Alexander the Great arrived, yet he named Israel Palestine, for the Philistines, obviously having been privy to and willing to bastardize the history of the region in order to try to humiliate Israel, that story still playing out today.
