Unbelievable Photo of Palestine Before 1917 Appeared in The New York Tribune Journal

A rare picture of the map of Palestine in the New York Tribune journal on June 17, 1917 in which appear the Greater Syria, the Levant and Palestine, at that time there were not some known states, including Saudi Arabia, which established the name of the al-Saud family and many others from United Arab Emirates and the Arab states which appeared post-colonial but it was, as is evident in the new Arab state map and historical Syria and Palestine.

In 1917, New York Tribune contributor Isaac Don Levine heralded the birth of a new nation. Its name was Palestine, but it was very much the nation of Israel that would come to be some three decades later, albeit with more audacious borders extending well into South Lebanon. It's no news for our readers that Israel used to be labelled Palestine on the world map, but the way Levine wrote about it is what catches our attention her.
