Re-read the article and still see no reason why Israel should be equated with Philistia.
Not to mention, you base some of your arguments on the biblical usage of the "Israel" as a geographical term. But if, according to what you have written elsewhere, the biblical texts are mostly Hellenistic - how can this in any way be used to explain the usage of a term in the late 13th cent. BCE?
Do note that Hasel (among others) has critically discussed many of your suggested IDs of the toponym "Israel" in the stele (see, e.g., Hasel in "Critical Issues in Early Israelite History" (Winona Lake 2008).
