    you write: 'in 1967, there were no 'palestinian' lands or 'palestinians', for that matter.' There were no 'Israelis' or 'Israeli lands' in 1947 either. you write: 'because no one wants these 'palestinians', they must have some sort of entity/state to run their own affairs.' this also applies to Jews from Europe and Middle Eastern countries from the pre-war through the post-war period. And yes, the Palestinians, like the Kurds, but unlike most Jewish Israelis, have lived 'in their undisputed lands for centuries, have distinct language and history and suffered a lot from their neighbors'. Especially their new neighbors, the Zionists, the 'new Hebrews', the Jewish refugees who poured into Palestine since the 1920s and 30s, displacing the Arab majority by means that do not bear scrutiny.
