Perhaps a look at history might prevent egregious and ignorant errors in NY Times reporting based on mendacious propaganda and counting on no one knowing the facts, such as the ridiculous set of maps the NY Times posted recently – unless the Gray Lady doesn’t care:

-Before Israel, there was a British mandate, not a Palestinian state .

-Before the British Mandate, there was the Ottoman Empire, not a Palestinian state.

-Before the Ottoman Empire, there was the Islamic state of the Mamluks of Egypt, not a Palestinian state.

-Before the Islamic state of the Mamluks of Egypt, there was the Ayubid Empire, not a Palestinian state.

-Godfrey IV of Boulogne, known as Godfrey de Bouillon, conqueror of Jerusalem in 1099

-Before the Ayubid Empire, there was the Frankish and Christian Kingdom of Jerusalem, not a Palestinian state.

-Before the Kingdom of Jerusalem, there was the Umayyad and Fatimid empires, not a Palestinian state.

-Before the Umayyad and Fatimid empires, there was the Byzantine empire, not a Palestinian state.

-Before the Byzantine Empire, there were the Sassanids, not a Palestinian state.

-Before the Sassanid Empire, there was the Byzantine Empire, not a Palestinian state.

-Before the Byzantine Empire, there was the Roman Empire, not a Palestinian state.

-Before the Roman Empire, there was the Hasmonean state, not a Palestinian state.

-Before the Hasmonean state, there was the Seleucid, not a Palestinian state.

-Before the Seleucid empire, there was the empire of Alexander the Great, not a Palestinian state.

-Before the empire of Alexander the Great, there was the Persian empire, not a Palestinian state.

-Before the Persian Empire, there was the Babylonian Empire, not a Palestinian state.

-Before the Kingdoms of Israel and Judah, there was the Kingdom of Israel, not a Palestinian state.

-Before the kingdom of Israel, there was the theocracy of the twelve tribes of Israel, not a Palestinian state.

The last three spanned over a thousand years

-Before the theocracy of the twelve tribes of Israel, there was an agglomeration of independent Canaanite city-kingdoms, not a Palestinian state.

Actually, in this piece of land there has been everything, EXCEPT A PALESTINIAN STATE.
