There are three different definitions of Palestine: a country (the recognized Palestinian Authority or the unrecognized Arab dream to replace Israel), a British Mandate (from 1922-1948), or a region. They are all generally in the same place although specific borders may differ.

In all three, Palestine is located in the Middle East, specifically the Southwest Levant.

Palestine for the geographic region between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River and various adjoining lands. Different geographic definitions of Palestine have been used over the millennia, and these definitions themselves are politically contentious. In recent times, the broadest definition of Palestine has been that adopted by the British Mandate of Palestine, which includes present-day Jordan, Israel and the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The narrowest definition used in contemporary politics embraces only the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Other English names for this region include: Canaan, Land of Israel, and Holy Land.
