Yes, Palestine was a country. When Israel was created in 1948, the land was occupied by the British and before that the Turkish Empire. When the UN created Israel after the Holocaust they wanted to split the land in half. Half as Palestine and half as Israel. Arabs did not like the idea. As the British retreated from Israel all the neighboring Arab countries tried to take over Israel. A war ensued and as the Jewish people pushed back their Arab neighbors they declared the land Israel. Palestinians today who live in the West Bank were Jordanian before the war, but never went back to live Jordan, because they want to stay in their home country. The West Bank and Gaza both are Palestinian and are still in Israel, but are run by their own Palestinian governments. Palestinians are determined to get THEIR land back.

___________________________________________________________ Palestine has been semi-autonomous (the Palestinian Authority) since renouncing war on Israel in the 1990's. As stated above, the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza now govern themselves, but they are not an independent country. They are still technically part of Israel. A study of history will show that this land has had many rulers before the Israelis, the Brits, and the Turks. But as the Arabs say"our land will be back".

Is Israel in Palestine?

Yes and No. Palestine has two different definitions and Israel has two definitions. Palestine 1: All of the lands of the former British Mandate of Palestine. Palestine 2: All of the lands not under Israeli control in 1950 that serve as the basis for any current two-state proposal for the State of Palestine. Israel 1: All of the lands under Israeli control in 1950. Israel 2: All of the lands under Israeli control, both military and civil as of 2012. Now for the spatial relationships. Israel 1 is entirely within the borders of Palestine 1, but smaller (78%) Israel 1 (78%) + Palestine 2 (22%) = Palestine 1 Israel 2 and Palestine 2 overlap in much of the West Bank Territories. Israel 2 and Israel 1 overlap in all of Israel 1's territories. Israel 2 does not control the Gaza Strip territories which are part of Palestine 1 and Palestine 2. Israel 2 also controls some Syrian territory not in either Palestine.

Who has more land Palestine or Israel?

It depends on your terms. If you are referring to the West Bank and the Gaza Strip cumulatively as Palestine and the 1949 borders of the State of Israel as Israel, then Israel is 3x larger than Palestine. If you are referring to the British Mandate of Palestine, then the State of Israel according to 1949 borders is smaller than Palestine. If you are comparing the current areas under Israeli control to the area of Mandatory Palestine, they are roughly equal. (The gain in the Golan Heights is more-or-less offset by the loss of the Gaza Strip and the West Bank Zone A regions.)
