Palestine is an ancient country as much as the history of mankind can tell. Its East Mediterranean situation engendered this land’s first touch with the old great civilizations of Egypt and the Mesopotamia. Palestine lies at the routes linking three continents. This unique position as a geographical bridge between Asia, Africa and Europe rendered it to be opened land to the cultural and religious winds of Egypt, Syria and Mesopotamia.
It is worthwhile to mention in this regard that Palestine location at a vintage point between these three Arab countries has determined its Arab identity from ancient times. If history itself is a coincidence, then one can make the right conclusion for the past and the future of Palestine as an Arab land. As a matter of fact the heart of the Arab world since Egypt, Iraq and Syria are the cornerstone of the Arab world.
This happy historic coincidence, a self-speaking fact by itself, is of paramount significance to all interested people in bringing genuine peace to the land of peace.
Furthermore, one can dare to say that this coincidence should be capable to large extent of telling the rest of the story of Palestine from time immemorial up to the present. It sheds enough light at history and how it had been shaped. With hindsight, it does not need a lot of effort to realize that Palestine’s present predicament is a case of struggle between the land’s owners and foreign invaders.
