Did Israel Take Over Palestine?

The Land of Israel has been referred to by many different names throughout its history- Canaan, Judah, Judea, Israel and Palestine.

Though modern day Israel was established in a land known as Palestine, named by the Romans who took control in the Second Century CE, its inhabitants have been historically Jewish since biblical times. No matter where Jewish people live across the world, the land of Israel continues to be their homeland.
