The invented history of Zionism

PBS is running an interesting biography of the great violinist Jascha Heifetz. They report that in 1926 he embarked on a world tour that took him to the Netherlands, Germany, Hungary, Austria, Monaco, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Egypt, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Latvia, & Palestine.

Palestine? Golly, isn’t that curious. And here Zionists say Palestinians are an “invented people.” Who was he performing for in Palestine since Israel didn’t exist until 1948? Did they call the people who lived there Palestinians? Or was it like Israel where the people are Germans, Russians, Americans, & every other nationality under the sun?
