Palestinian Nationality is an Invention

Reader comment on item: Solving the "Palestinian Problem" [with the No-State Solution]

Submitted by Boria (United States), Jan 7, 2009 at 07:50

Daniel is absolutely right. There is no such thing as a Palestinian identity or entity. This population accumulated in this area only because Jewish settlements which began late in the 19th century brought these nomads, Egyptians, and Jordanians to Judea, Samaria, and Gaza to settle as laborers whose lot was improved immeasurably by the agricultural and industrial development Jews brought to that region after their return, yes "return" after close to 1900 some years of diaspora.

Egyptians in Gaza and Jordanians on the West Bank will have a greater opportunity for civil government under these legitimate countries than they would under the Nihilistic Fatah and Hamas.
