Reader comment on item: Palestine for the Syrians?

Re your primer:

Dear writers.

You made many errors but I will cite just a few.

1. The argument about Abraham and his son Ishmael as a right to the land is so minimal among Arab palestinians that it does not deserve quoting.

2. To say that there was an idea about a "palestine" separate entity before 1963, is incorrect.
I have newspaper article where Shukairy still called it in 1956, as "nothing but southern-Syria."

(Ahmad Shukairy, mufti's man , the one who fought on WW2 in Mufti's pro Hitker gang, and saluter of neo-nazi Tacuara in 1962) .
