'Inhabitants of a territory is not a nation' The moment Israel's occupying army leaves and the PA has sovereignty over the territory, there will be a fully-fledged Pal nation. At the moment the territory is a non-state entity but it does not mean there is not a Palestinian people or legal territorial entity. There is a tendency to equate 'race' and 'nation'. They are entirely different. Kenya has 7 main African ethnic groups/races and as many again non-African. But they are all Kenyans. Israel has Jews, Arabs, Russians etc., but they are all Israelis. 'Nation' does not mean the exclusive preserve of one racial group. It is a legal description of a defined area with generally recognised borders wherein a constituted authority exercises sovereignty. To insinuate that Palestinians don't really exist or are not as worthy as Israelis, is to fail to understand that they already HAVE a nation, they just do not have full sovereignty yet, thanks wholly to Israel's never-ending occupation.
