they were here to begin with? uh, yeah, since when? 1948? how about the six millenia before that? this particular plot of ground has changed hands a few times in the past, and to say the "palestinians" (whatever that term is supposed to mean) were there first is at best historically ignorant and at worst intentionally misleading... don't forget that the muslims took this land from the christians and the jews by conquest in the 700s - if anyone was here first it was definitely not the muslims...
