    Jews and their historical presence in the land are recognized by every archeological find and in what is called the bible. The Palestinians on the other hand are an aggregate of various Arab immigrations to the area and are somewhat less than indegenous. Their authenticity as a people is reflected in the fact an Egyptian, Arafat, was their leader in their "national struggle". To compare the Palestinians to Americans in the colonies at the war of revolution is dumb. First the majority of them were of English origin and second their dispute with England was economic in nature. I think you are spending too much of your time on Bush-bashing to know the context of what you are writing about.
