Elder Of Ziyon - Israel News: Latest hilarious "proof" of Palestine

Guess what on the caption was cropped out of this map that supposedly proves that Palestine was a state?

The New Judea!

The map wasn't describing an existing state - it was describing and anticipating a new Jewish state! 

(If it was describing "historic Palestine" as defined now by Palestinian Arabs, then where is the Negev?)

The ancient, as well as potentially modern, Jewish state was commonly referred to as "Palestine" in English-language media for hundreds of years before 1948. Here's just one of many maps of "Palestine" from the 1800s that shows its divisions into the sections for the twelve tribes of Israel:

The idea of an Arab state of Palestine is less than 100 years old. The Israel-haters pretend that the Palestine referred to for hundreds of years previously, that was universally associated almost exclusively with Jews, is identical to the "Palestine" that they claim exists now. I recently showed how they do this by claiming a link to the Jewish Palestine soccer club of 1934.

You can read the entire 1917 article here or click on the thumbnail to the right. It was written months before the Balfour Declaration and was advocating a new Jewish state in the area that was then called Palestine.

Here's the last paragraph of the article that idiotic Israel-haters are using as "proof" that an Arab Palestinian state existed in June 1917:
