You are completely ignorant of the history of these lands, so I shall educate you. The word Palestinian actually comes from the ancient Egyptian word palesati, which means refugee. At about the same time that the Jews were expelled from Egypt, a giant volcanic eruption in modern day Santorini caused a tidal wave that wiped out the Minoan civilization in Crete. While the Israelites were wandering around in the desert for 40 years, some of the refugees of the Minoan civilization settled in that area of the world and intermingled with the local population (who were polytheistic). One settlement was around the Tel Aviv/Jerusalem area, while the other group (ethnically separate) lived further north, on the border between modern day Israel and Lebanon (later to become the Pheonicians). Hence, even before the Jewish faith was born, there were indigenous people living in that area. One could say that the Palestinians are a product of idigenous peoples and foreign settlers, Jews included.
