Palestinians as a distinct ethnic group do not exist. They have no unique language, culture, history, etc. They are simply Arabs. The name 'Palestine' is in fact derived from 'Philistine', an Aegean people who were driven from there homeland and settled in what is now Israel. The Romans created the name 'Palestine' to replace 'Judea' after Jewish revolts against Roman rule. Never was Palestine a political or ethnic identity; it was a group of provinicial subdivisions created for administrative purposes. Never was there a country of Palestine.
'Palestinians' never demanded a homeland before 1967, when Gaza, the West Bank, and the Golan Heights were controlled by Egypt, Jordan, and Syria; only after Israel controlled the land did 'Palestinians' demand it.

I'd like to address more of this; but for now I'll just say that Arabs ARE Semitic, and that European Ashkenazi-Jews are well; European, not Semitic.


So it looks like the Zionist Israelis(not Israelites) are the anti-Semitic ones.

What a ridiculously uninformed thread. Try looking at a map printed prior to the1930's, just south of Syria was a COUNTRY named Pallestine with clearly defined borders and international recognition. The land pallestinians want are primarily the lands that belong to them to begin with, unless of course you actually believe that Israel has some kind of mandate from god to own the west bank, or Gaza. I find it ironic you have mentioned propoganda, because you have bought some hook line, and sinker.

The creation of Israel actually created a shared history and culture among the Palestinians making them a true People. The experience of being of having their land taken and being thrown into a marginal stateless existance surely qualifies as a bonding experience.
