|Someday they may even be “Palestinians” and not “Palestinian Arabs”
Of course, they are Palestinians. I only use the phrase “Palestinian-Arabs” when discussing their national identity. They are Arabs because they speak Arabic, and a common language is one of the hallmarks of a nation. Also, the foreign jews who migrated to Palestine under the Mandate called themselves Palestinians and founded a newspaper called the Palestine Post (now the Jerusalem Post). Technically, all Israeli Jews living outside the Partition Line are living in Palestine and could therefore be called Palestinians, but they are not part of the Palestinian Arab nation.

|I thought you told me that the Zionist ‘wrongs’ gave them ‘rights’?
No. If you are talking about human rights, they apply to “Everyone” – including criminals.
If you are talking about the right of the State of Israel to exist, that was given by the States that recognized Israel as a State.
| What does the “historic Jewish homeland” have to do with the Zionists who invaded Palestine?
They claimed a right to settle in Palestine because it was their historic homeland. I pointed out that their historic homeland was a very small part of Palestine, and that the rest of Palestine was the historic homeland of the Samaritans, whose descendants are now Palestinian Arabs. (Well, some may have converted to Judaism and are now Israeli Jews.)

|Once again, the criminal actions of “hardcore Zionist invaders” earn them rights?
Once again, rights are not ‘earned’. They apply to everyone, including criminals.
