They can certainly define themselves anyway they like but let them not do that in the Land of Israel. Would you like a group of Turks to re-invent themselves as Euro-Turks and demand part or parts of Germany as their newly defined Land? Certainly there are enough Turks in Germany to do that especially if they co-opt pakistani, Apfghani, Iraqui, Moroccan, and all Muslims into their newly defined ethnic entity. Arabs never had a homeland in the Land of Israel, or Judea, or Samaria, or any other part of the Holy Land. They wandered in and out, essentially as marauders. read mark twains descreptions of the Holy Land circa 1865 and see what it is: An empty wasteland.

The vast majority of Arabs wandered into the Land after organised Zionism began making the land habitable, The UNWRA charter gives the refugee appelation to Arabs claiming to have lived in the Holy Land from 1946. And for a good reason. Because oh so many of them migrated or were moved in AFTER the San Remo treaty which established the Holy Land as the jewish National Home, not even mentioning Arabs but simply other ethnicities, such as German templars, or Abbysinian monks. So let the Arbs define themselves any way they wish, but not in my one and only home. Incidentally, my father was born and raised in Frankfurt. You guys made sure he would not feel a part of the German Nation. He was Yuden, go to Palestine, but first we will kill your father, uncles, nieces and every damn Jew stupid enough to not understand he was not wanted on European soil.
