Israel will continue to do as is but the question is what the Muslim countries are doing to stop it and the answer is nothing and therein lies the entire problem.

This article is filled with biases and historical inaccuracies. Amazing that this can be passed off as news.

The Israelis are not changing the names, they are giving them the original names that they had before the Islamic conquest 1380 years ago. Take for example 'Nablus'. It's name is a corruption of the Roman word 'Neopolis', meaning "new city", which the Romans changed from 'Shechem'.

This linguistic corruption occurred because the Arabs couldn't pronounce a 'p' sound. Similarly, the name Palestine is of Roman origins, itself a corruption of a Hebrew word (Hebrew has a p sound). Arabs started to refer to themselves as Palestinian after 1967, and most of them still pronounce it 'Balastine' (when they try to speak English), or 'Filistin' (when they speak Arabic).

Some of the names given to things are incorrect . But the spirit of the renaming remains true. Regardless of what their names were 2000 years ago, they were undoubtedly Hebrew names.

I hope your editor has the testicular fortitude to print this.
