Steve, the questions are irrelevant to my post, since I merely quoted what I read in Jabotinsky's "Iron Wall." What you see in quotes are not my words, but Jabotinsky's. If you do not agree with his use of the words "nation" to describe the group of Arabs living in Palestine in 1923, then that is between you and Jabotinsky. Unfortunately, he is dead and buried, but you can look up his "Iron Wall" treatise and read the entire work. That is where I learned that there were indeed inhabitants in Palestine, that it was not a deserted wasteland, and that the Arabs were fervently devoted to their land and that they would fight to the death to keep it.
