Actually I know the history very well. The same arabs who lived there well over three thousand years ago are still living there. They lived there when the romans were there, they still lived there.
It was the british who used the old name palestine back in the 19th century when jews and arabs were living there. Both revolted against the british at the time.
And you are wrong that it was the name of the jewish homeland. The jews fought the palestinians, remember david and goliath, the latter fought for the palestinians?
The word Palestine derives from Philistia, the name given by Greek writers to the land of the Philistines, who in the 12th century bce occupied a small pocket of land on the southern coast, between modern Tel Aviv–Yafo and Gaza.
The palestinians of today were forced off their land back in 1948. They were not recruited by anyone. And until then the british came in the 19th century, they lived in peace with the native jews who never left the region. In fact many jews fled europe during the centuries of christian oppression to the ME where they could live peacefully.
It was the stealing of the land that turned the muslims against the jews. The Israelis are not the innocents you think they are.
Read some real history and learn please.
