    The first Nakba happened in 1928 when teh Ottoman Turks ruled what we call today Gaza, west bank etc and teh indigenous people of the time were Syrians who teh turks would not let return to Greater Syria. It was quoted then as teh first nakba. It also reinforces that palestinians of today are indeed not palestinians but Syrians. Araft coined teh term Palestinians in 1973 for the reason of being able to lay claim to all ISrael . Prior to 1973, they simply didm not exist. Tghe people today the world calls palestinians are in fact Syrians and that I am afraid is a matter of historical record, and not just trying to make palis look less in teh eyes of the world. Perhaps Syria will welcome them with open arms
