"Palestinian" is an invented term...used to be used derogatorily toward Jews in Europe. The Arabs of Palestine were called just that, "the Arabs of Palestine". They have no ethnic, cultural, or national differences between the rest of the Arab world. Just like Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Kuwait, and Lebanon are artificial states created by the colonial powers to maintain a foothold in the Middle East for oil, so is "Palestine". The "Palestinians" are newcomers to Eretz Yisrael when the Jews started to immigrate there en masse and provide economic opportunities. Before that it was mostly swamp land and uninhabitable desert-a backwater Ottoman province with no sovereignty. The term "Palestine" is derived from the Latin word Palaestina which means invaders. It was meant as an insult to Jews (from Judea) by renaming the land of Israel after the biblical foes, the Philistines (Greek seafarer invaders).
