The following is a search for the terms "Palestinian people", "Palestinian state" and, as a reference, "Six Day War" (of 1967, when Israel took the West Bank).
Notice that the concept of a Palestinian people emerges, out of nowhere, AFTER the 1967 war where Israel took the West Bank/Judea & Samaria, in self-defence Had Israelis and Zionists truly stolen the land from an existing, established, indigenous people -- as Palestinian propagandists claim-- wouldn't you think that this indigenous people would appear in some books prior to Israel's establishment? A couple of anthropological books, maybe? First hand accounts by travelers through the centuries? And what of all the newspapers reporting on1948 when Israel was established, at the very least?
Please SHARE the above to defend the truth.
Next step: why would an indigenous people call themselves "invaders" in the language of their supposed colonizers, and have no other name for themselves? It turns out that "Palestinian" is a Latinized version of "Philistine" (who were Greeks, not Arabs) and "Philistine" is a Hebrew word, from the Bible, that means 'invaders.' That's right, the Palestinians are calling themselves invaders... in Hebrew.
The Palestinians have an undeniable right to self-determination. They should not be ruled by Israel, and Israel does not want to rule over them (hence, all of its offers of withdrawal in the last 13 years). But the right to self determination is not the right to slander the state of Israel, or defame the Jewish people or Zionism. It is not the right to distort Jewish history.
Food for thought.
