What was the Palestine alphabet?
Palestinians write in Arabic or (less commonly) Hebrew and do this according to the same guidelines practiced elsewhere in the Arab World and Israel respectively. Therefore they use those alphabets. They have no alphabet of their own.

The confusion as concerns "Palestine" is that it refers to two separate things. Definition 1 The British Mandate of Palestine covered all areas between Egypt, Jordan, Leb…anon, and Syria. It was a relatively small territory that was also bounded by the Mediterranean Sea in the northwest and has access to the Gulf of Aqabah in the south. Definition 2 The current country of Palestine, which is ruled by the Palestinian Authority, is de jure (this means by law) a small grouping of city-states in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. De facto (this means in reality) the Palestinian Authority, the internationally recognized leadership of Palestine, has lost control of the Gaza Strip to Hamas as of the Summer of 2006. Most Palestinians want a united country (that is to say that Gaza and the West Bank would become one nation, even though they are bifurcated) and many are willing to settle with Israel to create reasonable borders. On the same note, many Israelis feel the same way. The issue in both camps is that extremists routinely advocate the all-or-nothing solution and use maps of the British Mandate of Palestine to represent their side's ideal outcome. Additional Discussion This use of the Mandate-Map by extremist Palestinian organizations and by many in the Arab World has led to much confusion concerning the actual territories under Palestinian control and the territories which are being negotiated between Israel and Palestine for a future solution. There are those who would prefer to not believe that there is a current recognized Palestinian government. However, almost every major international forum recognizes the Palestinian Authority as the governing authority with whom Israel must negotiate a Palestinian future. Israel has also recognized the role of the Palestinian Authority by way of the Oslo Accords in 1993.
There are three different definitions of Palestine: a country (therecognized Palestinian Authority or the unrecognized Arab dream toreplace Israel), a British Mandate (from 19…22-1948), or a region.They are all generally in the same place although specific bordersmay differ. In all three, Palestine is located in the Middle East, specificallythe Southwest Levant. Palestine for the geographic region between the Mediterranean Seaand the Jordan River and various adjoining lands. Differentgeographic definitions of Palestine have been used over themillennia, and these definitions themselves are politicallycontentious. In recent times, the broadest definition of Palestinehas been that adopted by the British Mandate of Palestine, whichincludes present-day Jordan, Israel and the Palestinian territoriesof the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The narrowest definition used incontemporary politics embraces only the Palestinian territories ofthe West Bank and Gaza Strip. Other English names for this regioninclude: Canaan, Land of Israel, and Holy Land. [Please also see the Related Link dealing with Palestine'shistory.]
The alphabet is a series of letters that is used to form words. The term comes from the Greek letters alpha and beta . The "Latin" or "Roman" alphabet, as used in the US an…d UK, contains 26 letters which have upper and lower cases but no regular diacritics. There are several other alphabets used by other world languages. Letters (upper case, capitals): A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y, Z. Letters (lower case) a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z

The name "Palestine" is the cognate of an ancient word meaning "Philistines". The earliest known mention of the word was by Ancient Egyptian scribes, used to describe invad…ers from the Palestinian area during the reign of Pharaoh Ramesses III in the 12 th century BCE (BC).
A is the first letter in an alphabet. I'm pretty sure A is not the whole thing. WELL NO DUH SHERLOCK. A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z . There.
The alphabet exists solely to provide symbols to sounds to spell out words. It is also used as means of communication within others who use the same language as you do. THANKS…! i
No. A is for Alpha, B is for bet(a).
It's a much more complex and involved question than you might realize. It is easy to take the alphabet for granted, but the very idea of using abstract symbols (not pictograph…s, exactly) to represent (flexibly) spoken sounds took thousands of years to mature to its present state. See link for first steps.
Because it is a letter
The Phoenicians invented the alphabet in the 1900's B.C.E.
We have an alphabet because it enables us to communicate with each other through writing. Think about how many things in the world have letters on them!
No. The English alphabet is as follows: a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z When people sing the alphabet, we say "x y AND z" to let the person (to whom we a…re singing) know that the alphabet is over at "z".
If you are talking about a singular noun, the proper word is alphabet. For example, "I know the English alphabet." However, if you are talking about the plural noun, the wo…rd to use is alphabets. For example, "The alphabets of Spanish and German are somewhat different from that of English."
The alphabet is called the alphabet because the first two letters of the Latin/Roman 'alphabet', from which the English system of letter forms is derived, are called alpha a…nd beta . Sometimes we say that children 'have to learn their ABC', which means they have all the letters of the alphabet. But adults, instead of calling the system the 'ABC', they call it by a word made from the Latin names for the first two letters, alpha & beta , becoming the one word 'alphabet'. The English word 'alphabet' has been used for hundreds of years, and is very similar to the corresponding Greek and Latin words from which it comes. There are other 'alphabets.' For example ' FuÃ¾ark ', pronounced 'Futhark', is one of the ancient ones. It is called ' FuÃ¾ark ' because the letters f,u,th,a,r,k are the first 6 letters of that particular system!
