    "The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a
    Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle
    against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality
    today there is no difference between Jordanians,
    Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and
    tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of
    a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand
    that we posit the existence of a distinct 'Palestinian
    people' to oppose Zionism.

    "For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state
    with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa.
    While as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa,
    Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we
    reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even
    a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan."

    (PLO executive committee member Zahir Muhsein, in a 1977
    interview with the Dutch newspaper Trouw.)

    i bet some palestinians might disagree.

    as would croatians (for example) if a random whoever said that croatians don't exist and they are all serbs.

    I don't care what pan Arabists have to say. The Palestinians are the Philistines.

    Surely if that's true they should all move to Tin Ear Alley and Memphis and take over the music industry?

    One member, almost 40 years ago. How is that relevant to the majority of Palestinians?

    I personally think that Israel should be given to Switzerland. No one messes with Switzerland, that's because they have everyone's money.

    When will you mental midgets get a clue?

    I don't get the joke.

    Gaza, Ashdod and Ashkelon are the PLSTN (pronounce it how you like, Philistine or Palestine) homeland.

    Arabs on the other hand are fun to stab with rapiers. Those curved swords they use can't get close enough lol

    Some links about rapier vs curved Asian swords like scimitar/saber/katana/tulwar/cutlass

    If the Yanks wanted to give them a home land so badly, they should at least have been honest about it and given them Utah.

    They already gave Utah to the Mormons.
