Know Your History: Judea (NY Times Nov 23, 1917)

series where I use history to debunk common misconceptions about the Middle East conflict.

The term “West Bank” to describe the biblical area known as Judea and Samaria, really only came in to use after the Six Day War of 1967 (see this previous post of mine). This New York Times article from November 23, 1917 is just one example of how back in the day, the area was referred to in this way.

Not “West Bank” or even any Arabic name.

Note: I cannot provide a link to the full article since it is only available to those who have purchased a NY Times subscription. But I have provided a screenshot below. As usual, click on the screenshots to enlarge.
