look up any word, like tex-sex:
palestine as we know it today is 'a geographical manifestation of anti-semitism' (Simon Leigh). the area that was originally called palestine was meant for the area of the british empire underwhich both jews and muslims lived- it was never intended to refer to a 'palestinian people' such a people have never historically existed. palestinians have no shared culture, religion, or history they are simply arabs that have been dumped on Israels doorstep because the other arab countries dont want them, they are refugees, miscreants and nomads who have decided arbitrarily that the one little bit of land in the middle east not run by muslim dictatorships, oligarchies, militias, or police states, the only middle east democracy (known as Israel) that has jewish history stretching back 3800 years, is now theirs eventhough they have no tie to the land whatsoever.
there are no historical examples of palestinians before the modern state of israel because they never existed.
Its sole purpose is to be a thorn in Israels backside.

Palestinians are people from the country Palestine. They could be Muslim or Christian. Both Muslims and Christians are under occupation by the Israeli-Zionist government.

THEN: Palestine was inhabited by Arabs and Muslims for thousands of years. Palestine eventually became under British rule. Following the Holocaust, in which 6 million Jews were killed by the Nazis, pressure on Britain increased to allow Jewish immigration into Palestine. In 1947, the UN partitioned the land into Arab and Jewish states. The Arabs did not accept the partition and war broke out. Wars broke out in 1947,1956, 1967, 1973 and 1982.

*To sum it up: Palestinians were there first and European Jews invaded, thinking they had divine right to the land.

NOW: The Palestinian state has resorted to 1/3 of Israel, now being run by Hamas (a democratically elected government by the Palestinians). Israel is now, ironically, resorting to a mass wipe-out of all the Palestinians. Much like Nazi Germany to them. Israel wants all of the country, including the Palestinian territories (Gaza and the West bank). They block aid and food to the 1.5 million in Gaza, use illegal and inhumane weaponry, build settlements and barricade the Palestinians.

The Palestinians are now under apartheid. They are oppressed and violated. They are treated like 2nd class citizens in their own country.
MAN 1: Hey, what nationality are you?
MAN 2: I'm Palestinian.
MAN 1: What? Pakistilian?
MAN 2: No. Palestinian.

MAN 1: Oh. You mean Israel?
MAN 2: No. I mean Palestine, and if you would read any history book you'd know it's Palestine.

MAN 1: You know, the news says the Palestinians are terrorists!
MAN 2: Right. Why don't you google propaganda. Then you'll understand that you shouldn't believe everything the biased media says.

The middle children of the middle east. America helps these people some, but it doens't even compare to how much America does for Isreal. They have been disrespected and have been pretty much forgotten about in the western world. Much like a middle child in a large family.
Palestinian? Gaza? Who cares?

"Palestinian is a descendant of the migrant Arab laborers that came into pre-state Israel that asserts that they have an inherent entitlement to greater poitical rights than any other people and "cradle to grave" UNRWA welfare.
"Only "Palestinians assert that there exists a patrilineally inheritable 'right of return of refugees", even to places that they have never been, and that such "right" ONLY applies to Palestinians.
