The past is a foreign country - that never existed

Resolved Question

Before the creation of Israel, was Palestine a recognized country?

Best Answer - Chosen by Voters

"No, there has never been a country called Palestine."

Here are some postcards from this never-never land:

The Palestine Archaeological Museum, a.k.a the Rockefeller Museum, opened in 1938 near the Old City of Jerusalem. Photographed on the week of Israel's 60th anniversary.

A poster to promote Tourism to Palestine, 1936. Designed by Franz Krausz, Jewish immigrant from Europe to Tel Aviv, for an advertising campaign aimed mainly at American Jews. Reclaimed in the 1990s by the Palestinian Authority.
