Hi, a few points: (1) it is true that there was no such thing as a palestinian or palestinian national identity during the and before the Brit mandate...do some research of the Brit mandate, the Palestinians if anybody were the Jews. (2) There is no Palestinian language. (3) There is no Pal history that is older than say 45 years (4) Yes, today there is a distinct Pal national identity (5) Infrastructure...everything ie electricity, water, universities in the territories after 67 thanks to Israel.
