Rights of Arab's over various lands

Reader comment on item: Why Newt Gingrich Was Right about Palestinian History
in response to reader comment: Denying History.

Dear Dr Pipes:

Amin Riaz suggests that Arabs have more rights over the area called "Palestine" than Jews and gives some reasons for that. Does it matter to Amin if the land that Arab's aquired at any time in history was acquired through violent aggression? A lot of land that is claimed as "Islamic" has violence written all over it. Or all the history that I have been taught is wrong.
