The 1939 Flag of Palestine Recognized It As A ‘Jewish Entity’

The 1939 flag of Palestine clearly shows that it was recognized as a Jewish entity even then, and that the name “Palestine” historically referred to a region (so named by the Romans after they expelled the Jews in 134 AD, using the name of the Philistines, the Israelites’ Biblical enemies), not to a people.

There was no Palestinian nationality before the 1960s, when it was invented in order to reposition what was then universally known as the Arab/Israeli conflict. Up to the invention of “Palestinians,” the Israelis were the tiny, besieged people amidst a huge number of hostile Arabs; after that invention, the “Palestinians” themselves became the tiny, besieged people against the big, bad Israelis. PLO executive committee member Zahir Muhsein said this in 1977:

The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct “Palestinian people” to oppose Zionism.

For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.

The Israelis were mistaken ever to play along with this charade.

1939 Palestinian Flag. What does it look like? Surprised?

Factual Israel, November 14, 2014:

This a Larousse French dictionary from 1939. In the appendix it lists all the then current flags of the world in alphabetical order. You’ll notice that for Germany at that time the flag was the Nazi one replete with Swastikas’ which proves that this was pre-1945 ( before 1945)!

Now, alphabetically, look for the Palestinian Flag. YES , there is one. What does it look like? Surprised? Oh, but you thought (Mandate Jewish) Palestine was an Islamic Arab-,Turkish-, Circassian Sovereign State that the bad Jews took over , right?


From 1920-1948 a ( class ‘A’ Mandate) State of Palestine existed as per international law but it was, as all of its major institutions, Jewish. Until the 1960s, name “Palestine” resonated as something Jewish to European ears; the Muslims rejecting the name saying it didn’t belong. The 4,000 year old Jewish homeland or “Land of Israel” or the “Holy Land” were all synonymous!!

The British as legal Mandatory over the Mandate managed or mismanaged the state partially with Jewish Auxiliary until Jews regained official sovereignty in 1948, by declaring independence.

The U.N. did not recreate Israel as some people claim.

    The word Palestine and Philistine are unrelated. The Greek word palestatsis means ‘wrestler’ from the Jews’ origin story: Jakob wrestled with the Angel who declared ‘your name shall be Israel.’ (Gen 32:28). Israel is three words: Is Ra El – he wrestled with God. The Greeks did not transliterate, they translated. Palestinian (rhymes with Corinthian, showing it’s Greek origin) means Jewish. The Jerusalem Post was called The Palestinian Post. 1964 was the first time an Arab used the term Palestinian was due to Soviet KGB operation. Arafat and Abbas were KGB operators. We know because of the thousands of documents secreted out of Moscow when the USSR collapsed in 1990. The documents are housed at the university in Cambridge, UK. Col. Richard Kemp (UK) analyzed them and detailed the chronology here:
