2. Big Ben is the largest of the five bells.

It was cast in Britain and install in 1959. Itís never been to Palestine.

4. Competing narratives it seems.

The original one was made in 1859, not 1959.

6. Big Ben's never been in Palestine, or anywhere in the Middle East

I wonder if there is some confusion here between Big Ben in London, and another clock, probably influenced by it, called 'Big Ben, Aden'. Quite possibly there is some Arab rivalry over that; but not the one in London!
