You are free to choose sides. Many people are choosing the side of the "PALESTINIANS", a name that did not even exist before the 1960s in reference to Arabs living in Israel.
The actual etymology of the word goes back to1875. People using the word today think that it means the opposite of the original meaning of the word.
In early use it referenced "Jews who settled or advocated settling in that place".
"Of all the people on earth, the Lord your God has chosen you (Jews) to be his own CHOSEN treasure" (Dt. 7:3).
"You will be blessed above all the nations of the earth" (Dt. 7:14).
Isn't it amazing that the name did not exist . . . but supposedly the Arabs have been there longer than the Jews have been there?
Personally . . . I choose to believe what God has said in the Bible!
"My name will remain n Jerusalem forever" ( 2Kings 21:4)!
"My name will be honored FOREVER in this Temple and in Jerusalem . . . the city I have CHOSEN from all the tribes of Israel (2 Kings 21:7).
We could write pages and pages about this subject, but it is historically accurate that more than 3,000 years ago David (a Jew) purchased what today is the Temple Mount from Araunah.
1 Chronicles 21:18-30 (for serious students).
Yes, this piece of ground was purchased by a Jew and it has never been sold!
