Palestineball is a countryball occupying an area in the Middle East disputed hotly by many, that wants to be fully free and independent from Israelcube. He is currently made up of West Bankball and Gaza Stripball.
Palestine is supposedly named after the Philistineballs, who used to inhabit Gaza Stripball and Tel Avivcube which where NOT Arabballs. They were mostly traders and are well known amongst Palestineball supporters for what they inhabited, on the other hand Israelcube and others claim they are Arabs. Etymology is hard to track down precisely as no Philistineball, or any modern Semiticball state existed then, except for Kingdom of Israelcube. To compare the ancient Kingdom of Israelcube to the modern Israelcube would thus be dubious at best as it would be to compare the ancient Philistineballs to the modern Palestineball, at least modern Israelcube has the same religion Kingdom of Israelcube had which is not the case for Philistineballs and Palestineball.
The name 'Judea' was used to refer to the area ruled by SPQRball, and the name 'Palestine' was later adopted by Mamlukball and Ottoman Empireball. The term was most recently used by UKball when he referenced the name of a mandate in the Balfour Declaration of 1917.
Palestine before the British mandate (- 1917)
The region known today as Palestine was initially populated with Semitic tribes migrating around the Middle Eastern region.
Jewish tribes that did settle in the region eventually formed into a Kingdom, but were bitterly splintered into 12 tribes, that meant they were eventually conquered by foreigners like the Phoenicianballs, Ancient Greekballa, and SPQRball in turn. The first use of the name 'Palestine' to refer to the land was by a Greekball historian who wrote of a "district of Syria, called Palaistinê" in The Histories in the 5th century BC.  In contrast, the term 'Israel' was vague in its description, and even today some Zionists claim it stretches across Egypt and Mesopotamia while other Zionists consider such views as aberrations, although Kingdom of Israelball existed roughly from 930 BC until 720 BC in 'Palestine' who was referred to as 'Judea' at that time.
Around the fall of SPQRball from power, the region changed hands from Byzantinumball to various Caliphateballs, and then finally into the hands of Ottomanball in the 15th century AD. By this time, most of those who considered themselves 'Jewcubes' or 'Israelites' had migrated westwards to Europe; by now there were clear divisons between different groups of Jewcubes; some Jewcubes settled in the Pale, an area of Russian Empireball between the 16th and 19th centuries. Jewcubes were persecuted by Englandball in the Middle Ages, Spainball's Inquisition in the 15th century, the Russian Empireball's pogroms in the 19th century, German Empireball's Kulturkampf in the 1870s and 1880s, and Franceball's Dreyfuss affair of 1895.
This persecution led to the creation of a Zionist movement for the first time in 1896 for an artificial Jewcube nation state. At the time, German Empireball's Kulturkampf was busy eradicating Jewish culture in his Reich, and Franceball exhibited anti-semitism in the 1895 Dreyfuss affair. Despite what some Jewcubes claim (that Palestine is the homeland of the Jewish people), Zionism initially did not embrace this idea, and seeked a homeland in other places, like British East Africaball (Ugandaball's future clay), or South Africaball that were uninhabited.
In 1914, on the eve of the Great War, an Ottomanball census conducted in the region listed about 95% of local inhabitants as Arabs (a broad umbrella term used to describe peoples from Egypt to Kuwait, a thousand miles in distance, with many sub-groups), with only 59,000 listed as Jewcubes. The region was fought over between UKball's forces in Egypt and Ottoman Empireball who wanted to take the Suez Canal.
British Palestine (1917/20-1948)
UKball defeated Ottomanball in World War I and in the Treaty of Sevres after the war in 1920 made the Mandante of Palestinecube. The war saw British promises to the Arabballs who had risen up against Ottomanball in the Arab Revolt of 1916-18, revoked as UKball and Franceball divided up the Middle East in the Sykes-Picot agreement in 1917. The Balfour Declaration of 1917 was also ignored by UKball after the war at the Paris Peace Conference in 1919. The Mandate status of Palestinecube was, according to the League of Nationsball; '(of territory) be assigned to (another power) until self governance is possible'.
During the 1920s, Zionism began to focus on the creation of an artificial Jewcube state in Palestine, due to the Balfour Declaration (which was made with no regard to existing demographics, but was thankfully shot down in 1919). Jewcubes began to migrate to Mandate of Palestineball's clay in large numbers during the 1930s, when the rise of Nazism and Fascism in Europe. These Jewcube refugees were welcomed by many Palestinian Christians and Muslims alike, despite growing fears by the Arabball population that Jewcube migrant refugees would soon overwhelm the native Arabball population. It was to these Arabballs almost exactly what Europeaballs fear of the migrant crisis today, but almost the exact opposite. Many Jewcubes that supported Zionism invoked Biblical fables about Semite peoples (as aforementioned, it is not possible to distinguish an Ashkenazi race of Jewcubes in Biblical times with sovereign ties to a homeland they abandoned for centuries) to support their claims to a state in Palestine.
This sparked the Arab Revolt of 1936-39 against UKball's rule in Palestine, seen as what allowed this migrant crisis. The Revolt was crushed in 1939 before the outbreak of WWII in Europe, but during the war, in Palestine Jewcube migrants staged uprisings against British authorities due to land disputes solved in favour of the local Palestinianballs, particularly in 1940 and 1944, where a Jewcube insurgency called the Yishuv committed acts of violence.
Meanwhile in Axis-occupied Europe, the rise of Naziball in Europe saw many Jewcubes rounded up and put in ghettos and concentration/work camps. An initial plan was to send them to Madagascarball's future clay (then Vichy Franceball's colony), but after 1941, as large amounts of Jewcubes still living in the Pale (now Ukrainian SSRball's clay) were flooding the camps, the Final Solution to exterminate the Jewcubes in Europe began in Naziball's General Government in Polandball's clay.
As the war turned against the Axis, the Jewcubes were killed off deliberately and also by typhus and dysentery and hunger in the camps from 1943 to the camps' liberation by USAball and Sovietball towards the end of the war. The revelation of what Naziball had been doing, caused UKball to turn the issue of Palestineball's clay over to UNball to avoid international criticism over his mandate. UNball, who created a partition plan for an artificial Jewish state in 1947 due to regret over the terrible things that had happened to Jewcubes in the camps.
Many Jewcubes who had migrated to Palestine in the 1930s had legally bought privately owned lands; however the UNball's artificial creation of the Jewcube state in half of Palestineball's clay (remember, without any political precedent as Jewcubes previously had 2 states in Palestine yet Palestineball never had a state as they were part of Ottomanball). So when the Mandate was terminated in 1948, Arabballs attacked the new 'state' of Israelcube starting the Arab-Israeli War of 1948, this was wholly illegitimate by any standards of morality.
Occupation and Conflict (1948- present)
The 1947 Partition was not neccessary in the eyes of most Arab countryballs; so Palestineball refused it and a day later Israelcubewas attacked by Iraqball, Syriaball, Egyptball and Jordanball with the support of the Arab Leagueball. Israelcube won and annexed most clay in Palestine except for Gazaball that was under the control of Egyptball and West Bankball that was under the control of Jordanball. This was the beginning of the Israelcube occupation of not only the land given to him by the 1947 partition plan, but also most of the other 50% of clay left for Palestineball. Many Palestineballs were now forced to leave their homes for their allies' clay. Some Jewcubes claim this is what makes Palestineball illegitemate; that they started the violence, so they should just go to Jordanball's clay, as they're ethnically similar anyway, but this is like saying Japanese occupied Koreaball (1910-1945) means that Koreanballs should go to Chinaball's clay, since they're both Asian balls, except all Asianballs have different language, culture, costums where as Palestineball and Jordanballs don't. Moreover, Koreanballs never indentified themselves as Japananeseballs, not even during 1910-1945, where as Palestineball indentified themselves as Jordanballs before the nationalist movements of 1960. The 1948 partition plan spoke of an Arab-Israeli partition not of a Palestinian-Israeli partition as none would indentify themselves as enthincally Palestinian back then. Arabballs do not deserve one state based on an umbrella term; would they not have united into a large United Arab Republicball style state then? Only the most extremist jihadis want that kind of caliphate. And even Germanyball got a state back after WWII; violence does not remove a state's right to exist.
In 1966 due to struggles over their homeland Palestinianballs, who during the nationalist movements in Middle East identified themselves as Jordanballs- see 'Palestineballs forced to leave their homes for their allies' clay because of Israelball's occupation'. The next year in 1967, Six-Day War occurs, in which Iraqball, Syriaball, Jordanball, Lebanonball and Egyptball try to conquer Israelcube but lost in six days due to lack of coordination and poor planning. Israelcube now took over Golan Heightsball from Syriaball, West Bankball from Jordanball, Gazaball and Sinai Peninsulaball from Egyptball, occupying even more clay populated by Arabballs that it had no valid claim to except for the claim that they won a war, a defensive war, causing international outrage in the ranks of Palestineball supporters, mostly Arabballs. Palestineball was supposedly created around now; this is not true; the PLO was created, not the Palestineballs or a concept of a Palestinian state.
In 1970, Palestineballs rose up in Jordanball (Black September in Jordan) to try gain control of a country where they had had representation in since 1949 after fleeing Israelcube's occupation of their land, and also in Lebanonball (Palestinian insurgency in Southern Lebanonball). Both were also morally wrong, but after that the Arabballs began taking Palestineball's calls for them to liberate Palestinian clay more seriously now. So in 1973, the Yom Kippur War occurs, in which Arabballs attack Israelcube. This time, israelcube was suprised by the attack, and fought valiantly, but was forced by international outrage and also Sovietball's threat to intervene on the Arabballs side if USAball didn't rein in Israelcube, who wanted to occupy even more territories after the war. Peace talks supervised by USAball were conducted in 1978 at Camp David, and peace was made with Egyptball in 1979 by Israelcube for the return of the Sinai and a part of Egyptball's army detained by Israelcube there, in return Egyptball gave Israelcube the right to freely use the Suez Canal. In 1982 Lebanonball gave up the fight against Israelcube, and Jordanball followed in 1994. These giving ups by their allies saw some desperate Palestinianballs resort to terrorist means of reclaiming their clay, forming groups like HAMAS in the Gaza Strip and West Bank, which also cannot be morally justified.
Today the conflict rages on, with a compromise for Israelcube to evacuate the Gaza Strip in 2005 and make up for some settled territories with an equal amount of land from his clay rejected by hardline Palestineballs who wish to see the whole of Palestine restored to them. There are Jewcubes who reject the idea of a Jewish State as well as Palestinians who reject the idea of a Palestinian state; like the Neturei Karta who claim that Israelcube goes against the teachings in the Torah. Conversely there are also those who wish to see a Jewcube state extend "from the Nile to the Euphrates", again citing Biblical tales as 'proof'. The conflict currently consists of Israelcube firing missiles into Palestineball refugee camps, building settlements in their allocated sections of the West Bank, and HAMAS terrorists claiming to represent all the Palestineballs firing back.
