Since when do "Palestian People have a right to their own state?

Reader comment on item: In Clausewitz's Shadow

It was always my impression that the "Palestinians" didn't officially exist as a people until around 1967. If that is true, then their right to their own state is questionable. The area has been a crossroad for religions, commerce and politics for thousands of years, so who exactly are these so-called Palestinians? Israel was a nation in 1312B.C.E., two thousand years before the rise of Islam
