Canaanites are known to be the earliest population that inhabited Palestine who lived in the land around 3rd millennium BC. The 2nd millennium saw the area taken over by Pharaonic Egypt and their rule was weakened by new invaders, who included the Hebrews from the Semitic tribes of Mesopotamia and a group of Aegean people from Indo-European stock, the Philistines. The country was given the name of “Philistine” because of their Philistine inhabitants. The Israelites were an alliance of Hebrew tribes, who although defeated the Canaanites, found defeating Philistines much difficult. The philistine population took over the southern coast of Palestine and established an independent state there, controlling Jerusalem, the Canaanite own, and defeated Israelites in 1050 BC.



Construction and Destruction of the First and Second Temple
One feature which gave Israelite tribe recognition was their unity which enabled Prophet Dawood to work for an independent state for his people, which he did, making Jerusalem the capital of this state. A place of worship was built by Prophet Dawood’s son, Prophet Suleyman and this magnificent structure was named The First Temple. This temple was destroyed by the pagan Assyrians as it housed the Ark of Covenant.
After Jews were allowed to return to Jerusalem, they built another temple deciding the site of The First Temple for this purpose. The Second Temple which was further expanded by King Herod but was turned to rubble and the city along with it, when Romans reached Jerusalem in 70 CE.
Muslim Rule in Palestine

In 324 CE, Constantine of Byzantine marched into the city, rebuilt it and opened it for Christian pilgrimage; however, they were harsh on the populace. Their discrimination was not only limited to Jews who were banned from entering into Jerusalem but they were equally unjust to those Christians who would not act upon the same teachings as they did. The situation was completely different with Muslims who were known to have compassion and mercy as victors. Therefore, when Muslims entered the region, the people of Palestine gave up the city without much struggle and there was no bloodshed or massacres. Instead, people were given the freedom to leave the city with all their goods if they wished or stay with compete religious freedom and security.
Peace and prosperity in the region was introduced by Muslim Conquerors who put an end to oppression and tyranny which prevailed in the land for centuries. Palestine flourished to the extent that it became a learning center and produced a large number of scholars. Muslims ruled over Palestine for 1300 years, with the exception of a period where Crusaders took over it and named it Filastin. The Crusader occupation brought injustices and massacres whose targets were Muslims, Jews and Christians equally. Palestine was liberated from the Crusader clutches by Salahuddin Ayyubi, who worked once again to bring peace and justice to the land and to implement Islamic law.
Israel and Palestine Today

The First World War brought the fall of the Ottoman Empire, following which the French and British victors divided the Arab region. It was also the start of British occupation in Palestine. While this was going on, the population of Jews in Palestine started increasing through immigration with the help of non-Muslim countries.
In 1917, Britain issued the Balfour Declaration which stated Palestine as a homeland to Jews and after the defeat of Ottoman Empire, it encouraged Jewish immigration from European countries to Palestine. The population of Jews in Palestine kept increasing so that by 1947, total Jews in the area had become 650,000. They began establishing organizations to train the Jews in arms and terrorist activities. They prepared to the extent that Jews had thousands of trained and armed people at their disposal at the time Division of Palestine was announced.

Sorry to say it but the Jewish nation were the invaders. America needs to realize that the Jews are not wholly right on this subject. The time for supporting Israel so we can be on the god of Abrahams good side needs to come to an end.

It was the land of Cannon and before the original Jews migrated there in about 1800 BC the Canaanites were there.

Between 3000 and 1100 BC Canaanite civilization covered what some call today "israel", Palestine, Syria, Lebanon, and Jordon.  Those who remained in the hills of Jerusalem after the Romans expelled the Jews in the 2nd century AD were farmers, orchard, and vineyard caretakers.

They consisted of old Cannonite tribes, Greeks, Persians, Samaritans, and Arabs. But the original were the Canaanites. Many were Pagan while some were Christian converts.

More Arabs came in the 7th century AD bringing Islam with them. They intermarried with the original Canaanites and the whole population became so Arabtised that it is impossible to tell where the Canaanites left off and the Arabs begin.

By the end of the 7th Century Palestine became predominately Arab and almost immediately adopted it's name Falasteen. In 1516 Falasteen (Palestine) became a providence of the Ottoman Empire but it made the country no less Arab.

The Zionist base there territorial ownership on the Kingdoms of David and Solomon which only  ruled about 73 years before collapsing. Even if you consider the entire time of Jewish kingdoms from Davids conquest of Canaan in 1000 BC to the destruction of Judah in 586 BC it only amounts to the total of 414 years of Jewish rule

The beginning of Zionist colonization/immigration to Palestine started around 1882. The Zionist World organization was founded in 1896-97 in which lead to more migrating from Europe but up until the establishing of israel becoming a "nation" in May 1948 there had been nothing but a huge Arab majority. Which consisted of Palestinian Christian, Muslims, and Jews, whom are all part of the REAL Semite race along with those of Syria, and parts of Iraq.

Because it is documented history. Even the bible speaks on the land of Canaan.

You're right. I'm not sorry. I'm not sorry because the United States has no business in this affair. Another thing we are wasting money on

2013 - Palestinian equals terrorists

Time to be on the Jewish side because they are the civilized society.

(but you personally can support whatever terrorists that you want, a freedom that you wouldn't have in a Palestinian nation).

Sorry to say it but there are also Jewish terrorist organizations. the Gush Emunim Underground (sometimes called the Jewish Terror Organization), was formed in 1979 by prominent members of Gush Emunim, a group of religious zealots who had used squatter tactics to carry on a campaign to settle the West Bank after the October 1973 War. That is at least one I can fin but there are many more.

So yes Billie decide which terrorists you support.
