Jews even re-created Hebrew...

Reader comment on item: "Nationalism for 'Palestine' is an Islamist strategy to destroy Jewish Israel"

Dr Pipes claims "Palestine" only came to Muslims at the turn of the century. If that is even true. And it isn't.

But Jewish Israeli identity - is no older.

Jews even struggled to find a language... and had to re-create modern Hebrew.

Daniel Pipes replies:

Funny notion that the Jewish identity is less than a century old, as is the Palestinian one. That will convince a lot of people. Just like the idea that Jews lack a historic connection to the Temple Mount.
