Once upon a time pre-State of Israel, there was Palestine

1904 poster of Tiberias Palestine

Funny how things change. The Israeli right is so adamant about the Palestinians not living in a country called Palestine, while at the same time denying that the country ever existed. Yet, guess what the country was called Palestine, way back when? Yep, you got it. Here is a facsimile of a 1929 poster designed by Zev Raban, artist and one of the founders of the Bezalel Art Academy in Jerusalem. (BTW, it was a gift from my good friend Dr. Annamaria Orla-Bukowska), from the Jewish quarter in Krakow. I love the style. The scene is Tiberias next to the Sea of Galilee.
