    Quo usque tandem, Catalina, abutere patientia nostra? How many times do I have to answer that querry? Yes, there are written references to "Palestinian Arabs," also called "natives" and a "nation" that will not give up its "birthright," comparing them to Aztecs and the American Indians, who also fought ferociously to keep their lands. The great intellectual, the famous creator of revisionist Zionism and the spiritual father of the Likud, born in Odessa, Vladimir Jabotinsky wrote "O zheleznoy stene" ("On the Iron Wall") in 1923. That is 82 years ago. I am beginning to think that the question of giving proof of the usage of "Palestinian" in reference to the Arab natives is purely rhetorical in that the questioners are so sure that the word does not exist in print prior to the 1960's that they do not even bother to check if anyone has answered. And for supporters of Israel's right to exist to not have read Jabotinsky--well, that is preposterous.
