Palestianians were living in the region of canaan and judeo in ancient times.
Do you realise that Arabs invaded the area and weren't native to it ?

There was no such thing as Palestinians until the 60s. They are a makey up nation.

By the eve of the creation of Israel (after the terrorist ethnic cleansing and forced land sales from Christians and Muslims) when all Jewish immigrants, willing or forced, had been gathered the Jewish population of Palestine was up to 30% from the original 5% or less.

The Jewish land ownership had increased from 1% to approximately 6-7%.

The source for above is the British Mandatory Commission which was a survey prepared in 1945/46.

When Lucy's people migrated up from Kenya, were they Israeli or Palestinian?
That's the fundamental question for those who justify land-grabbing and ethnic cleansing.

i imagine its due to a few things

1. most people ( silent majority ) not being too bothered

2. potential for negative feedback from america and american multinationals

risk outweighs benefit perhaps

How do you " force " an Arab, be he Christian or Muslim, to sell swampland ? In actual fact they took the money and ran; usually to Beruit or Damascus. On Christian landowner sold 40 square miles before he decamped.

Most so called Palestinians of today are descendants of migrant workers from Saudi Arabia and Egypt working on Jewish owed enterprises. In moments of honesty, they admit that.

Alternately they are the original Biblical Jews who changed religion to Islam during the middle-ages, perhaps they are a mixture of both.

Either way they are the natives and not those from Brooklyn or Russia and you cannot exterminate them.

It's not for a nobody like you to tell the Palestinian people what they can call themselves, they are there, they live there, they have lived there for generations and they are going nowhere.

Seek peace with the Palestinian people and create a democratic country free from apartheid.

Because 'Palestine' is not a real country.
Its an imaginary nirvana-like place created by Leftists simply to annoy America and Israel.
Its inhabited by the kindest, gentlest, most misunderstood people in the world who are always unfairly getting themselves into trouble and who only want to live their lives in peace and harmony with their fellow man.
Kosovo sure isn't.

Neither is Kosovo.
Neither is anywhere, they are all manmade abstract concepts.

Arabs, Jews, Palestinians, Irish, scientologists, Muslims, all abstract concepts, we are all the same poor specimens, making the same daft mistakes and not learning fast enough.

The Palestinians problem is they put their trust in Bill Clinton and the UN.

The Olso accords were the greatest con job in history.
The con job was expecting the Palestinians to keep to any agreement they make....

At the outset of a push for a Zionist state (after Uganda and other options had failed) Zionists in Palestine tried to clear the land of Muslim and Christian inhabitants and replace them with Jewish immigrants.

This was a tall order as 95% of the population were either Muslims or Christians. Zionists first tried to buy up the land or failing this, they would use violence to force them out. This dual strategy was well documented and cited by a number of both Palestinian and Israeli historians.

- Ilan Pappé (Israeli) in his book The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine.

- Masalha Nur (Palestinian) Expulsion of the Palestinians.

- Mazin Qumsiyeh brilliantly evokes the spirit of Mahatma Gandhi, Edward Said, Rachel Corrie and many others, to tell the unvarnished truth about Palestine and Zionist settler colonialism in his book Sharing the Land of Canaan.

You should read some history seeing as you like to spout off on all things Zionist while demostrating a complete ignorance of the subject.

Hard to know what to do about the Arabs, isn't it Wes? Should we bring back the British Empire? Put manners on them.

There were numerous different coinages under Jewish rule

e.g. the coins of Judea in the 5th and 4th centuries before Christ.
Which would have meant if there are coins extant at all they would have been under Assyrian and later Babylonian issue. Could I have a look at these 'Judean' coins of yours from the 5th and 4th century BCE?
