No. They lost the war. Their "choice" was siding with Germany and Austria in the first place.

It was part of the Ottoman Empire. Same as (what is now) Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Syria, etc.

Subjects of the Ottoman Empire. There were Jews, Muslims, Christians, Copts, Marrionites, Druze, and people of other religious persuasions.

Yes so the statement that they "didn't have any trouble with it" is a bit simplistic

Yes plus many more, it was a big empire. But didn't the Romans have a fair chunk of it earlier on. What did they call the bit in question.

Yes, a couple of thousand years worth of settlers.

What does it matter, the Romans were not around for WWI.

More than that actually. Probably something like 150,000 years. Changed hands more often than a dollar bill. Sometimes in the same year.

It doesn't matter. But the Brits, whilst they used it, did not make up the name Palestine and you know it.

Yeah, I herad they were all nomads.
Your obfuscation throughout this thread makes it hard to take you seriously.

The same one the Germans had. You don't seem to grasp the concept of "lost a war".

Parts of what is now Israel were spread among the Vilayet of Beirut, the Vilayet of Syria, and the Mutassariffiyet of Jerusalem.

Turks.

I think i do. Your words were "the Turks didn' thave any trouble with it" I think you erred.

What was it referred to at the time of WW1. I know when i asked my Grandfather where he fought he said "bloody Palestine" son "you don't want to go there" He was talking literally.

Not Ottomans? Or Palestinians?

You see the Turks Whining to get it back? How many "Palestinians" have the Turks taken in?

Right. Just like I said. That's what the BRITS called it. Note that they never Whined about getting it back.

No, Turks.

Well, by your reconing, all of them. There was no "Palestinians" only Turks.

Nope. Turkey is not now and never has been shooting rockets into Israel, and until the recent incident they had fairly close ties to Israel.

The Vilayet of Beirut, the Vilayet of Syria, and the Mutassariffiyet of Jerusalem.

Whoever he worked for might have called it Palestine or the Queen of the May, the Turks, who owned it, didn't call it that.

It was all Turkey and had been for half a millennium.

The Jews are welcome to it--they couldn't possibly run it any worse that the current bunch.

Point is, it was not 'foreign' to the people living there. They were, you might say, Liberated from Turkey.

Interesting that 5 out of 6 ships voluntarily submitted to inspection but the 6th did not.
In any event, the convoy and their supporters got exactly the result they wanted, didn't they?
