I'll grant you that the Eurocentric designation of the Holy 
Land is Palestine, while the Jewish one is Israel, or Eretz 
Israel. The latter designation is also used by the only 
group to continuously occupy the land for the past 2,500 
years, the Samaritans. 

This discussion reminds me of the resentment Latin Americans 
feel toward gringos who call themselves Americans and refer 
to their land as America.
