When was there a land called Palestine? There was the British Mandate for Palestine that existed from 1922 until 1948. The sovereign nations of Jordan and Israel exist there now. Prior to that, the area was ruled by the Ottoman Empire for over 600 years. There has NEVER been a sovereign nation in the area called Palestine.

Anyone who speaks of "returning" the areas to Palestinians is mis-speaking.
