WHO ARE THE PALESTINIANS?
The land of Isreal became known as Palestine after it's destruction in 70 A.D. In 135 A.D. Hadrian, a Roman Emperor wanted to remove all Jewish identify from the land and so he "picked" the name Palestine, a derivative of the name Philistine. Islam conquered the middle east in the 7th century and tried to change the name to Falstin. It didn't work, the name Palestine stuck even through invasions by the Ottoman Turks and the British. Around 1900 much of the land that is currently Isreal was a wasteland. The trees had come down, and erosion was huge problem. There was hardly anyone there at the time, certainly no civilized dwellings. Around 1850 the Jews began returning home from oppression by Russia and other Eastern European nations. They bought land from Muslim Ottoman Turks and suprisingly were successful in revitalizing the land. Because the Jews were so sucessful, this is still known as an agricultural miracle. Migrant workers began to flood in from surrounding areas. Many of the people who call themselves "Palestinians" today are direct decendents of those Migrant Workers. Palestinians are made up of Arabs, Jordanians, Syrians, Egyptians, and Lebanese Arabs.

LETS LOOK A LITTLE CLOSER AT THE PALASTINIAN FLAG
"The four colors of the Palestinian flag are black, white, red and green. These colors are also identified on the four horses of the apocalypse in Revelation 6:1-8. The Greek word for "pale" in Revelation 6:8 is chloros, translated as "green" in the Bible."
"While in Israel I noticed there were fluorescent green lights placed around the upper part of all the mosques. At night, the green glow can be seen miles away. I assumed these glowing green lights were simply to draw attention to the mosque as the centerpiece of the community.
I later learned that the color green was considered to be the color of the prophet Mohamed, because it was the color of the earth. This same color, green, is found on many flags in Islamic nations, including the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), Turkey and other nations."

"The verses following the pale horse speak about a large number of martyrs who are in heaven crying out for vengeance upon those who murdered them on earth. Later, in Revelations 20:4, it is revealed that they were murdered by beheading, which is common practice among the more strict Muslims."
