The only independent country that has ever existed in Israel has been Israel in the ancient times. It was a "territory" occupied by many empires all which gave it different names, never calling it as part of the occupying country, always referring to it as territory of the Empire. The first time sin…ce the Romans that it was called Palestine was at the Paris Peace Conference after WW1 when France and England were dividing up the conquered Ottoman Empire. Then all of what is now Jordan as well as Israel Gaza and the West Bank was named Palestine. Shortly after that England partitioned Palestine to create Jordan giving almost 80% of Palestine to Arabs.

A: Mentioned only in Acts of the Apostles, Saul is the name of the apostle Paul before his conversion and his first missionary journey. Tarsus is also given in Acts as the home town of Saul. In his own epistles, Paul never mentions having been called Saul, or having come from the city of Tarsus. I…n spite of this, it is certainly possible that he had been called Saul and that he was from Tarsus. However, we can never be certain whether the author of Acts of the Apostles, writing several decades after the death of Paul, was mistaken in those attributions. Some of the key passages regarding Saul in Acts of the Apostles have parallels to a Saulus whom Josephus mentions in Antiquities of the Jews , a book with which the author of Acts is known to have been familiar. Josephus even talked of a riot in Jerusalem, led by Saulus after the stoning of James. Although this Saulus could have inspired the author of Acts , he could not really have been the same person as Paul. (MORE)

What country to the south of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia refuses to acknowledge either that name or the formal name Republic of Macedonia?
Greece refuses to acknowledge the former province of Yugoslaviawhich calls itself the Republic of Macedonia. Greece has ahistorical province named Macedonia. Macedonia Name Dispute Background The issue is simple andstraightforward: Greece HistoricalMacedonia , was an ancient Greek king…dom on the northern Greek peninsula Modern Macedonia, is a Greekprovince corresponding almost entirely to the ancient Greekkingdom on the northern Greek peninsula There is an unbroken record of people identifying as Macedonians with a Greek ethnic linguistic and cultural identity, continuouslyinhabiting the land of historical Macedonia from the present toancient times. Historical Macedonia , on thenorthern Greek peninsula was liberated from foreign Ottomanoccupation in 1912. Regarding The Former YugoslavRepublic and why it has been given the designation (FYROM): The Republic ofFormer Yugoslavia north of historical Macedonia, is a newly foundedSlavic state with a mixed ethnic population, on what was once thekingdoms of ancient Paeonia and Dardania, and isunrelated to the historical Macedonia on the northern Greekpeninsula. The largest ethnicgroup in the Former Yugoslav Republic consist of Slavic and Turkictribes of the Bulgarians, (People of the first Slavic and Bulgariantribes) that began to slowly migrate into the area in the 6thcentury CE. The Former Yugoslav Republic north of the historical Macedonia, wants toself-identify as simply "Macedonia", a name given to it in 1946by the communist regime of the Socialist Federal Republic ofYugoslavia before its dissolution. This name represents noethnic or political reality for the new Slavic Republic, andwas given the name as part of an expansionist agenda towrest historical Macedonia from northern Greece and forge for thecommunist Yugoslavia, a strategic pathway to the sea. FYRO"M"'s violation of the name"Macedonia" The use of simply " Macedonia "to describe the newly founded Slavic state is in violation of Article 2 of the UNESCO Declaration on Cultural Diversity that states that in the interest of harmonious interaction, onenation (The Former Yugoslav Republic) in exercising its right toself-determination, cannot diminish the equal right of anothernation (Greece) to identify simply by its millennia old historicalidentity (Macedonia) which is historically, ethnically, culturally,geographically different to the new Slavic nation. The interim accord was signed under the auspices of theUnited Nations, with Greece compromising and agreeing to thetemporary use of "Macedonia" with the qualifier "Former YugoslavRepublic by the new Slavic Republic, and the Republic of FormerYugoslavia agreeing to the name "Former Yugoslav Republic OfMacedonia" (FYROM) while it chooses a permanent name for itselfthat does not violate Greece's equal right to identify by itshistorical identity and that does not imply a territorialexpansionist agenda on Greece's historical northern province. However, instead of honoring its agreements, the former YugoslavRepublic stalls on deciding on a name for itself, continues toviolate the interim accord and Article 2 of the UNESCO Declarationon Cultural Diversity by identifying itself only as "Macedonia",relentlessly creates a flood of propaganda, misappropriatesHellenic state symbols, and demonizes and distorts the history andhistorical perception of Greece. The government of FYROM and itsDiaspora continue to provoke Greece and meddle in Greece's domesticaffairs. The Former Yugoslav Republic constantly makes territorialprovocations on Greece's historical northern province and continueson unimpeded with its expansionist agenda to change people'sperceptions and validate a lie. The claim perpetuated as justification for the use of thehistorical Greek name "Macedonia" and at the heart of theexpansionist plan is that Macedonia was a region that was"divided". FACT: There is no such thing as a Macedonian Greater Region and in particular one that was divided. This is propaganda spreadacross many platforms by the Former Yugoslav Republic whose aim isto distort historical reality and create a false narrative for allthose readers not familiar with Balkan history. The illusion is that before the Balkan wars (1912-13) asovereign state entity with the name Macedonia existed, inhabitedby an alleged "Macedonian" ethnicity, that was attacked, defeatedand consequently partitioned by the allied Greeks, Serbs andBulgarians. The reality is, that the three areas which comprise thisimaginary unity, that is, modern FYROM (Vardar), the historicalprovince of Macedonia in Greece (Aegean) and a region in Bulgaria(Pirin) never constituted an ethnologically, historically,culturally and linguistically united territory. Even the nameMacedonia itself was not applied to the whole area even when underforeign occupation (especially the greater part of todayÂ´s FYROMthat lies north of the Prilep-Strumica line). In fact, one cannotfind any original map before WWII with the term Macedonia in thearea of present-day FYROM. Quote: The Department has notedwith considerable apprehension increasing propaganda rumors andsemi-official statements in favor of an autonomous Macedoniaemanating from Bulgaria, but also from Yugoslav partisan and othersources with the implication that Greek territory would be includedin the projected State. This Government considers talk of"Macedonian Nation", "Macedonian Fatherland", or "MacedonianNational Consciousness" to be unjustified demagoguery representing no ethnic or political reality , andsees in its present revival a possible cloak for aggressive intentions against Greece . U.S. State Dep. Foreign Relations Vol. VII, Circular Airgram[868.014] Edward R. Stettinius Quote: For (**Fyr)Macedonia to berecognized as an independent state, it would be necessary to changeits name [...] It is historically proven that the YugoslavianDemocracy of Macedonia was created by Stalin, Tito and Dimitrov,aiming at the stealthy removal of a large part ofNorthern Greece . This Democracy was used during theperiod 1944-1949 in order to destabilise Greece. Thomas Niles, US Ambassador, statement on the 23rd June 1992 tothe SubCommittee of US Congress, Eleutherotypia newspaper, June 24,1992 . ALL countries including the USA, use the OFFICIAL name, Former Yugoslav Republic in all international organizations, formaldealings and events while it waits for the FYROM government tohonor its agreement. Not because "Greece throws a tantrum" butbecause there is a violation of international convention. The'tantrum' is thrown by the Former Yugoslav Republic who will notdeal with any country bilaterally without forcing the use of thename of its expansionist agenda with the plan to make it stick. ALL governments of all countries are very aware of the issueand all (except perhaps the possibility of Turkey) have agreed toaccept the new name once the Former Yugoslav Republic honors itsagreement to stop violating Article 2 of the UNESCO Declaration onCultural Diversity.

The answer Is Majan. Ã Â½eljko Heimer had wrote, "Oman used a pure red flag until 1970" , not explaining thatthere was no 'Oman' at that time. The name of the state with thered flag was 'Muscat and Oman'. Muscat had ruled Eastern Arabia,not Oman. Oman was the interior part, ruled by an Imam, …who neverruled in Muscat. When they both cooperated the name was changed to'Muscat and Oman', and after the defeat of the Imam, Sultan Qabooschanged the state's name to simply 'Oman'.
