The Greeks Then Romans Named Israel Palestine Although Philistines Had Been Vanquished Centuries Previously


After kings David then Solomon establishment dominance in the Promised Land, the influence of the Philistines (who had brought Mycenaean culture from the Adriatic at the ending of the Ice Age) waned, by circa 700 b. c. the Philistines having been absorbed into the Israelite tribes or killed as had been for the Canaanites in the days of Joshua then the Judges, so to call that promised land Palestine (Philistine) is ludicrous, scheming to delegitimize Israel’s right to the land which had been promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob almost two thousand years before the Greeks then the Romans decided to “play God.”
