Who stole whose land?

The Jews stole the land from the indigenous "Palestinians" and now the indigenous are only fighting for their rights and land back??? What on earth are you talking about? This is an antisemitic canard masquerading as humanitarianism and justice and nothing more.

For your information, the "Palestinians" were Arabs from elsewhere in the region who migrated to Palestine to benefit from the Jews who were building up the country through their various efforts in agriculture and industry. The land had been previously desolate after many centuries of foreign occupation and neglect (mostly Muslim).

Why do you think many "Palestinians" have last names like Al-Masri (the Egyptian), designating their family's place of origin? Besides, true indigenous people have their own language, and arabic originated in Arabia, not Palestine. Mr. Ray, inform yourself instead of spreading antisemitic fabrications used as justification to murder Jews and steal their country.
