His name is Pales, and the entire country is named after him, and he was celebrated by both the jews and the cananites (arab grandparents) of the time. And check this out, he was a Bi-sexual Ass-God (Ass meaning Donkey, of course).
Pales was also the name of the "Ass-God" of ancient Cannan, and Babylon where the ass-god was known as Set. Pales was a playful, bisexual deity, having the reproductive organs of both men and women. The references to the god and his/her cult can be found all over the biblical and ancient world– Samson slew the Philistines with the jawbone of an ass. Jesus rode into Jerusalem on an Ass, and early images of the Hebrew Messiah show a man with an ass head crucified to a tree. Palestine is named for the god. The Festival of Palilia was appropriated by the Christian calendar into the Feast of St. George.
