Israel is Jacob’s Name While Palestine is Philistine so Which Label for Promised Land is Reasoned While Other is Not?


The name given to Abraham’s grandson Jacob by Elohim after their struggle was Israel, meaning fighter, the fighting people of Israel who subdued the Canaanites and the Philistines to secure possession of the Promised Land, these days fighting the Palestinians whose ancestry by the name given to them by the Greeks under Alexander the Great and then the Romans is Philistines, no right to the Promised Land.
