Palestine (British Mandate) ceased to exist may 15th 1948.
The British Mandate over Palestine did not replace a Palestinian State, rather it replaced the outskirts of the southern Senjak fo the Ottoman Empire, which had been there for 400 years. That is Turkish, not Arab.

Therefore Palestine, as an Arab entity has never existed, untill dreamed up by Yasser Arafat in 1964, when the PLO was established.
Today, with the generous help of the United States, Britain Canada Israel and the European Union Palestine has again receded, and in its place is Hamastan, Hizzbulastan and Al-qaedastan.

They burn Danish flags in all those locales, that is how we know they are all Arab.
So, in order to re-attach to reality, please delete Palestine from your dictionary. There is Israel, and hamastan, superimposed on each other, and it is up to you to choose which one of them is less likely to bring down the Empire state and the Sears tower.
