"Palestinians" are the descendants of non-Jews that had pre-state Israel as their place of residence from 1946-48 (per UNRWA) and who found the idea of living with Jews on a basis of equality so repugnant that they left pre-state Israel in solidarity and at the orders of the advancing armies of five Arab nations. Arabs that were not bigoted towards Jews became the ancestors of today's Israeli-Arab, roughly 20% of Israel's population.

1. A Jordanian refugee living in Israel who is Arab.

2. A Jew.

Up unitll the 1960s, Jews called were from Palestine and called "Palestinian." When Jordan attacked Israel and lost, they were left with a refugee problem. In other words, Jordan (and the other Arab countries) refused to admit their Arab brothers into their borders, shifting the responsibility for looking after the ones left behind onto the Jews. The Jordanian refugees were labelled "Palestinian" and a myth was born. "Enlightened" housewives in Vermont like propel the myth of "Palestine" ever having been independent of Israel, as they equate the new Palestinians as being natives and the Jews as outsiders. A visit to the history section at your local library tells a different story. Both Arabs and Jews historically shared Israel, but never were any Arabs distinguished with a unique "Palestinian" culture or government, as oppossed to Jordanian. Since Jordan and the rest of Islam has turned its backs on the new Palestinians, a culture and government has emerged. Both are based on blaming the Jews, Islam, and martyrdom (terrorism).
