Whatever Happened to the Moabites, Edomites, Ammonites? Is It Not Written Who Take Possession there?

Reader comment on item: About Those Billboards in Israel ...
in response to reader comment: 2022 6-8 "The Hashemite Kingdom of Palestine" - Ali Shihabi (Middle East Specialist on Saudi Arabia)

In the continuing attempts to make Jordan the 'Palestinian' successor interest to s false narrative of 'rights of return\,' premised upon a Western intersection of correcting history in finding a place for the Jewish populations nobody wanted in their own backyards, the underlying anti-Semitic antipathies were just too full of rancor in allowing that to happen; and even spite of the vast historical evidence of Jerusalem being Israel's in full promise of ancient documentation, somehow the hatred wins and the modern naming conventions continue to rob Israel of her heritage. It's going to cost the the antagonists; the sooner they realize the truth that 'Palestine' never had a true place in the Middle East, the quicker Dr. Pipes' suggestion of Israeli victory is realized. Even the Hashemite label was a modern 20th labeling convention in order to get Arab cooperation after the Ottoman Empire passed from its own legacy.
