Denial of Jewish nationality is central to the Arab position that Jews do not constitute a nation or a people , but merely are adherents to the Jewish religion. The only nation ever to exist as an independent nation in this land is the Jewish nation. The Arabs have over twenty nations, but Palestine was never an independent state under Moslem rule. Arab settlement is relatively recent by all accounts recorded by numerous visitors to the holy land in the 19th century. Zionist development brought an electric grid, modern agricultural methods and industrialization prompting Arab immigration from surrounding nations for employment whose children and grandchildren now claim to be the "indigenous" population!!
