    How do you define a palestinian? Today the arabs have reinvented themselves as palestinians not simple arabs as they considered themselves to be before the foundation of the PLO. Pre 1948 a palestinian was anybody who lived in mandate Palestine so the Jew made up a significant percentage of the original palestinians. The UN never voted to create Israel and a palestinian state because the palestinians were not a bunch of arabs the way they are today was just going to be an arab one but the arabs rejected partition just like they neglected the Balfour Declaration which would not have create a jewish state at all rather a Jewish homeland which is more like the binational state that some people want to see as the solution now rather than 2 states. Balfour though would have been more like an arab state with a Jewish minority because zionism hadn't developed into an ideological based movement it later became and was still very much just about creating a place where the persecuted European Jews could go to escape the pogroms. Perhaps if the arabs had accepted Balfour it might have even put an end to zionism because the Jews would have got what they wanted at last and zionism wasn't based on ideology as much as it was later. The arabs have always been their own worst enemies.
