It’s called Palestine not ‘Israel’

Palestine, Wednesday, June 3, 2020.( The inside Palestine)- Recently, an article was published on National Geographic website mentioning the name ‘Israel’ instead of Palestine. This has angered Palestinian activists and led them to condemn this ignorant act, as recognizing the State of ‘Israel’ means complicity in its brutal crimes against humanity.

Until 1948, Palestine typically referred to the geographic region located between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River. Arab people who call this territory home are known as Palestinians.

It is estimated that between 700,000 and 900,000 Palestinians were forced out of their homes to create a Jewish homeland.

Until this day, ‘Israel’ seizes large areas of Palestinian land, so the activists believe that no one has the right to call Palestine as “Israel” because it was established on stolen Palestinian lands.
