Another brave Christian, Geert Wilders, whose PVV party finished 3rd in the Holland elections and is part of the ruling right-wing government, has suggested to ending the Middle East conflict by renaming Jordan to Palestine.
Mr. Wilders’ comments aren’t even that controversial. Unfortunately, most people don’t know (be…cause the press doesn’t tell them) that before 1923 Jordan and Palestine were one entity – named the “British Mandate of Palestine”. The Brits split “Palestine” then into two parts – Palestine (24%) and Transjordan (76%). How the smaller entity took the name of the previous entity is beyond us.
