Dear Charliehal. Re Arab Immigrants grandchildren called since the 1960s as palestinians….
Palestinians first referred to Jew or Arab.
Hiwever, after Shukairy (Shukeiri) was fired (Dec.16.1962) from his UN post for saluting. (Nov.30.1962) Nazi Tacuara gang (who, months earlier has kidnapped, tortured, carved swastika on a girl as revenge for Eichmann’s death), months later appeared a “palestine” separated entity identity – idea.
Joan Peters 1985 book and Mark Twain’s 1800s testimony have neen vilified by Arabists as well as by extremist anti Israel Haaretz types. But it is fairly relatively new. Since the 1990s. Or shall I say “too late”…
To say that the 1880s Jewish immigration didn’t boost Arab immigration, is ludicrous.
I’m not saying that each and everyone of the Arab who was in Israel/palestine at 1948 were all 100% children of immigrants. But some say at least most of them can’t trace back more than 2 generations. The (original!) last names of prominent palestinian Arab families also tell of their origins.
it is very difficult to make a case out for the
misery of the Arabs if at the same time their
compatriots from adjoining states could not be
kept from going in to share that misery.
— British Governor of the Sinai from 1922 to 1936
… So far from being persecuted, the Arabs have
crowded into the country and multiplied till their
population has increased more than even all world Jewry
could lift up the Jewish population.
— Winston Churchill
