I love Munich said...

Cosimo .. what the hell is wrong with you?? To set the record straight - I do not support ANY kind of terrorism, nevermind where I am living!
Let's just turn the whole thing around ... if YOUR home is ransacked and you defend what is yours and fight to get it back - are YOU then a terrorist? Or do you have the right to get back what was stolen?
WHO'S the criminal .. the one who attacks - or the attacked??? Give an HONEST answer ... and then we can keep on talking!

BTW .. your last sentence makes my shiver from fear!!

Adham ... why don't you get in touch? I sent you a proposal of how to possibly give the children a better feeling - you never reesponded! PLEASE DO!!

Adham I'd love to read it if you posted about the sort of work you're doing at school with other youth.
I'm sure that it's a daily "job" to do the simplest of things with any presence of mind while any activity can be threatened at any time, but your networking with others surely would be something of hope which I'd like to hear of.

I have no advice to offer as Karin does, here in the comfort of north american security I cannot possibly imagine how it must be for you to live in the prison of Occupied Palestine, but it would be very useful and interesting to hear how you choose a peaceful path throughout your day to day encounters with the difficulties imposed.

I wish you peace and prosperity - and peace of mind.

Salam Adham
I hope you are doing well my friend.
Say hi to all the others, miss you all much

A different veiwpoint:
Myths of the Middle East
© 2000
by Joseph Farah
Joseph Farah, an Arab-American journalist, is the editor and chief executive officer of, a leading independent news site. See more articles by Joseph Farah
I've been quiet since Israel erupted in fighting spurred by disputes over the Temple Mount.
Until now, I haven't even bothered to say, "See, I told you so." But I can't resist any longer. I feel compelled to remind you of the column I wrote just a couple weeks before the latest uprising. Yeah, folks, I predicted it. That's OK. Hold your applause.

After all, I wish I had been wrong. More than 80 people have been killed since the current fighting in and around Jerusalem began. And for what?

If you believe what you read in most news sources, Palestinians want a homeland and Muslims want control over sites they consider holy. Simple, right?

Well, as an Arab-American journalist who has spent some time in the Middle East dodging more than my share of rocks and mortar shells, I've got to tell you that these are just phony excuses for the rioting, trouble-making and land-grabbing.

Isn't it interesting that prior to the 1967 Arab-Israeli war, there was no serious movement for a Palestinian homeland?

"Well, Farah," you might say, "that was before the Israelis seized the West Bank and Old Jerusalem."

That's true. In the Six-Day War, Israel captured Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem. But they didn't capture these territories from Yasser Arafat. They captured them from Jordan's King Hussein. I can't help but wonder why all these Palestinians suddenly discovered their national identity after Israel won the war.

The truth is that Palestine is no more real than Never-Never Land. The first time the name was used was in 70 A.D. when the Romans committed genocide against the Jews, smashed the Temple and declared the land of Israel would be no more. From then on, the Romans promised, it would be known as Palestine. The name was derived from the Philistines, a Goliathian people conquered by the Jews centuries earlier. It was a way for the Romans to add insult to injury. They also tried to change the name of Jerusalem to Aelia Capitolina, but that had even less staying power.

Palestine has never existed -- before or since -- as an autonomous entity. It was ruled alternately by Rome, by Islamic and Christian crusaders, by the Ottoman Empire and, briefly, by the British after World War I. The British agreed to restore at least part of the land to the Jewish people as their homeland.

There is no language known as Palestinian. There is no distinct Palestinian culture. There has never been a land known as Palestine governed by Palestinians. Palestinians are Arabs, indistinguishable from Jordanians (another recent invention), Syrians, Lebanese, Iraqis, etc. Keep in mind that the Arabs control 99.9 percent of the Middle East lands. Israel represents one-tenth of 1 percent of the landmass.

But that's too much for the Arabs. They want it all. And that is ultimately what the fighting in Israel is about today. Greed. Pride. Envy. Covetousness. No matter how many land concessions the Israelis make, it will never be enough.

What about Islam's holy sites? There are none in Jerusalem.

Shocked? You should be. I don't expect you will ever hear this brutal truth from anyone else in the international media. It's just not politically correct.

I know what you're going to say: "Farah, the Al Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem represent Islam's third most holy sites."

Not true. In fact, the Koran says nothing about Jerusalem. It mentions Mecca hundreds of times. It mentions Medina countless times. It never mentions Jerusalem. With good reason. There is no historical evidence to suggest Mohammed ever visited Jerusalem.

So how did Jerusalem become the third holiest site of Islam? Muslims today cite a vague passage in the Koran, the seventeenth Sura, entitled "The Night Journey." It relates that in a dream or a vision Mohammed was carried by night "from the sacred temple to the temple that is most remote, whose precinct we have blessed, that we might show him our signs. ..." In the seventh century, some Muslims identified the two temples mentioned in this verse as being in Mecca and Jerusalem. And that's as close as Islam's connection with Jerusalem gets -- myth, fantasy, wishful thinking. Meanwhile, Jews can trace their roots in Jerusalem back to the days of Abraham.

The latest round of violence in Israel erupted when Likud Party leader Ariel Sharon tried to visit the Temple Mount, the foundation of the Temple built by Solomon. It is the holiest site for Jews. Sharon and his entourage were met with stones and threats. I know what it's like. I've been there. Can you imagine what it is like for Jews to be threatened, stoned and physically kept out of the holiest site in Judaism?

So what's the solution to the Middle East mayhem? Well, frankly, I don't think there is a man-made solution to the violence. But, if there is one, it needs to begin with truth. Pretending will only lead to more chaos. Treating a 5,000-year-old birthright backed by overwhelming historical and archaeological evidence equally with illegitimate claims, wishes and wants gives diplomacy and peacekeeping a bad name.

TIME PERIOD: Introduction

"For about two thousand years the name Palestine has been used internationally for the lands on both sides of the Jordan River... The name Palestine will here be refer to the area from southern Syria (the Beqa Valley) to Egypt and the Sinai, and from the Mediterranean to the Arabian desert.

The Greek historian Herodotus called Cisjordan [the land west of the Jordan River] the Palestinian Syria or sometimes only Palaestina. Thus, there is a tradition from at least the fifth century B.C. for the use of this name...

Another well-known name for Palestine, which is the most common one in the Bible, is Canaan. The earliest known reference to this name, read as 'Canaanites', is in a letter from [the kingdom of] Mari (on the Euphrates) [see 700 mile radius map] to Iasmah-Adad from the eighteenth century B.C... The letter does not give any information about the territory of these Canaanites... In many Egyptian texts Canaan refers to southern Syria and Palestine...

The Sinai peninsula is not part of Palestine, but because of its geographical location between Egypt proper and Palestine it has a place in a history of Palestine."

Gosta W. Ahlstrom, The History of Ancient Palestine, p. 56-66, Sheffield Academic Press, 1993

Israeli / Palestinian CLOSE


Our Israeli / Palestinian map history identifies the various peoples and powers that inhabited and controlled the land of Palestine and the surrounding area during the last 5,000 years. For a more detailed text only history of the region, click here.


Many of the map demarcations are approximate, and are based upon texts and maps from scholars in the fields of Near Eastern archaeology, history and languages.

Note: There is no single definitive history of the region. Scholars differ regarding the interpretation of the data, therefore, we have tried to incorporate the work of more than one scholar for any given time period.

Time Periods:

Our map history is divided into time periods based upon a "significant change" in the controlling power(s) of the region.

Each time period contains its own map that can be enlarged for more clarity and detail.

For perspective, each map includes an overlay of the disputed territories which include the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and the Golan Heights.

Disputed Territories:

The West Bank and the Gaza Strip are territories which were delineated at the end of the first Arab/Israeli war in 1949. The Gaza Strip's borders were the armistice lines drawn between Israel and Egypt, and the West Bank's borders were the armistice lines drawn between Israel and Jordan.

Both of these territories as well as the Golan Heights came to be controlled by Israel as a result of the 1967 war. They have been disputed territories ever since. Egypt renounced its claim to the Gaza Strip as a result of the 1979 Egyptian/Israeli peace treaty, and Jordan renounced its claim to the West Bank in 1988 "in deference to the will of the PLO." The present day de facto borders are different than the 1949 armistice lines, and are the result of stalled negotiations between the PLO and Israel which began with the Oslo Accords in 1993.

We have included the borders of the West Bank, Gaza Strip and Golan Heights on our maps because they are and have been an integral reference point throughout the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.

Never rely on one place, anonymous, for your information....
