    "The Palestinians have been there since before BiblicaThey are the Philistines mentioned in the Bible along with Cananites,Hebrews etc..." That's fairly absurd. There is probably no group of people on earth who can clai that theu have lived within the same 100 mile radius for over 30 Centuries. If the Palestinians are the Philistines (as opposed to Arabs who migrated to a land named after the Philistines), there would be some evidence of this. There is none. You are spinning fantasies that have no basis in reality. By the way, you're not helping the Palestinians when you throw stuff like that out there. If the Palestinian claim to the land is based upon the notion that they have always been there, they might as well give up now. It is an unsupportable assertion that flies in the face of all of the recorded history of the region. Try again, please.
