They did. Before the jews came back to their land, they were just arabic groups from syria and jordan.when the jews apeared they became 'palestinian. You can know it by their last names. Can you name palestinian philosof or poet from 100 years ago? No. No culture. No history
That argument is and has always been moronic. The fact that Palestinian culture is very close to those of neighboring Arab countries doesn't change the fact that they do have a culture and that of course, plenty of things happened to them on that land.

Article so biased, typical radical left nonsense. The arabs have no accountability. Gaza is run by arabs, Jew free, yet they terrorize the Israelis. Israel allows arabs to work in Israel, yet Egypt's border is closed. Israel is not responsible for how arabs choose to live.
