And what do you think the Greeks called it when they ruled it? They called it Palestine. The Romans just copied this word from the Greeks - like they copied nearly everything from the Greeks.
Who cares what the Greeks called it?

The resident Jews who lived there decided what it was called.(y)

So you now admit that it wasn't the Romans who first called Palestine Palestine. And the name does come from the local residents.

The term "Peleset" (transliterated from hieroglyphs as P-r-s-t) is found in five inscriptions referring to a neighboring people or land starting from circa 1150 BC during the Twentieth Dynasty of Egypt. The first known mention is at the temple at Medinet Habu which refers to the Peleset among those who fought with Egypt in Ramesses III's reign,[2][3] and the last known is 300 years later on Padiiset's Statue. The Assyrians called the same region "Palashtu/Palastu" or "Pilistu," beginning with Adad-nirari III in the Nimrud Slab in c. 800 BC through to an Esarhaddon treaty more than a century later.[4][5] Neither the Egyptian nor the Assyrian sources provided clear regional boundaries for the term.[6]

One hate-filled Roman Emperor changed the name from Judea to the Roman Province of 'Palestina'.

The first to do so.

Hard to understand?

Some other obscure references don't mean diddley squat!!! :ROFLMAO:

That awkward moment when you realize so called "Palestinian" Arabs only came to the Holy Land - AFTER Jews developed the land.(y)

The Jews might have made those ridiculous claims to the gullible Kennedy brothers, but that's no indication that there was ever any truth to them. Here's another Kennedy quote.

That's a Zionist myth which is debunked by the fact that the Greeks referred to Palestine as Palestine for centuries before the Romans did. And the Egyptians referred to it as Palestine for centuries before that again.
