They’re Palestinians, not ‘Israeli Arabs’ – LA Times

During the latest Israeli election we heard many things……but the one that was repeated over and over is that the Israeli-Arabs could hold the key for the winner….

Israeli Arabs?  Call them what they are PALESTINIANS!.

I was guilty of using the term until I had time to think…..they are Arabs who are descended from the original residents of the region….that makes them PALESTINIANS!

  1. Some suggest that there are no real Palestinians as a particular ethnicity, that all are descendants of Syria, Lebanon, Jordan. But I suppose if you were born there and your neighborhood is there you’d call yourself a Palestinian.

    1. Exactly……Palestine was there since at least the 1st century BC…..now the people are basically kept on reservations….sound familiar?
