A NEW NAME FOR ISRAEL

Reader comment on item: Obama to Palestinians: Accept the Jewish State

Submitted by JACQUES HADIDA (United States), Mar 28, 2013 at 12:42

I may have 2 sugestions to change the name of the state of ISRAEL to be

a)THE JEWISH STATE OF ISRAEL

b)PALESTINE

As long as I remember as a kid, before the advent of ISRAEL, we always called that land PALESTINE. Regardless as to who lived there, and we know there were Jews, Moslems and Christians.

Imagine today's Palestinians feeling that we are stealing their name to call our state PALESTINE, when in reality this is what it was called all along. THINK ABOUT IT

I know deep inside I make sense but who will listen
