Palestine, Biblical Name – Canaan: Who are the Palestinians ? (1)…..
With the passing of President Yasser Arafat and his history, here is a look in the Bible as to who and what Palestine is. This leads to the question about the current day “Palestinians”, as to whether or not they are actually the original Palestine (Canaanites) natives – or are they really Philistines. Obvious deceptions that can entangle in terrorist events and there actual validity by premise and declarations and causes.
Was the PLO a ‘sham’ – a lying deception? Is this the great deceit as part of the great Anti-Christ War with God and his nations ? Have the Muslim peoples of Faith been rifled by these “radical extremist terrorists” who have all taught lies about the true existence and destiny of the Muslim peoples of Faith – attempting the false appearances and affront as in solidarity of the Faith itself to conclude the destruction of Israel permanently ?
The Holy Bible has been examined and compared and declared, in the least, as an accurate record of History in being compared with World History – showing much in the way of genealogies and ascendants and descendents as a true public record for world populaces. This can be acceptable by non-Christians of different faiths as a History tool, and of course as the way to hear about and believe in God himself – which was the real reason it exists. But this is reserved to each person in the World, to hear or research Religion and decide for themselves what they believe is true – and it is the responsibility of all Teachers in Religion to prove Religion as to belief in God or other and its truth.
Here, the first post of this series of “Palestine, Biblical Name – Canaan: Who are the Palestinians ?” is a brief history of Palestine in a common Encyclopedia record…… (popular Britannica Encyclopedias, online):
The greatest reality is that Palestine is a given name for Canaan – which is the Land given by God to the Hebrews as their Nation (Israel, the land that floweth with milk and honey..) before all Nations for all time. The Canaanites were destroyed by the Hebrews as led by God’s commandment to subdue the land and secure the nation, and build the Temple of God there at Jerusalem – the House Of God for all the World, the Jew first – being the heirs, priests and prophets, and family of God. This brings history right to the forefront with the United Nations in 1948 declaring the right of the State Of Israel, and the subsequent rising to power of Yasser Arafat who promoted the destruction of Jews like Adolph Hitler of Germany – but rescinded this in the 1990’s by denouncing ‘terrorism’ against Jews (Hebrews).
Region, at the eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea.
Biblical Name – Canaan.
It extends east to the Jordan River, north to the border between Israel and Lebanon, west to the Mediterranean, and south to the Negev desert, reaching the Gulf of Aqaba. The political status and geographic area designated by the term have changed considerably over the course of three millennia. The eastern boundary has been particularly fluid, often understood as lying east of the Jordan and extending at times to the edge of the Arabian Desert. A land of sharp contrasts, Palestine includes the Dead Sea, the lowest natural point of elevation on Earth, and mountain peaks higher than 2,000 ft (610 m) above sea level. In the 20th century it has been the object of conflicting claims by Jewish and Arab national movements. The region is sacred to Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Settled since early prehistoric times, mainly by Semitic groups, it was occupied in biblical times by the kingdoms of Israel, Judah, and Judaea. It was subsequently held by virtually every power of the Middle East, including the Assyrians, Persians, Romans, Byzantines, Crusaders, and Ottomans. It was governed by Britain under a UN mandate from the end of World War I (1914-18) until 1948, when the State of Israel was proclaimed. Armies from Egypt, Transjordan, Syria, and Iraq attacked the next day. They were defeated by the Israeli army. See Israel, Jordan, West Bank, and Gaza Strip for the later history of the region.
