Back in January, a $1000 first-round clue on *Jeopardy!*, falling under the
category "Judea,"
asked<http://mondoweiss.net/2012/01/was-the-palestine-question-on-jeopardy-last-night-for-real.html>,
"Galilee, Samaria & Judea in the south were the 3 traditional divisions of
this ancient area with a still-current name." The correct
question<http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=3806>was "What
is Palestine?"

None of the three contestants even buzzed in to respond. (Incidentally,
this was a question a number <http://www.forward.com/articles/147699/> of
GOP presidential candidates had been
answering<http://www.aljazeera.com/news/americas/2011/12/201112108493783540.html>
incorrectly<http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opinion/2011/12/2011122495928144388.html>
themselves<http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/fact-checker/post/rick-santorums-claim-that-no-palestinian-lives-on-the-west-bank/2012/01/04/gIQAcxsIbP_blog.html?hpid=z2>at
