You raise a valid point, Danite when you ask (for you I am sure it is a rhetorical question)if the palestinians had won would they have internalized the Jewish narrative? A good question. From what I have read (again Tom Segev is a good source) the Palestinians did not object to the presence of Jews in Palestine, nor did they deny the connection between the land and the Jews. What they did come to object to was a growing immigration which they saw as pulling out the rug from under their feet and culminating in either there expulsion or lack of recognition. Remember that the colonial powers, Britain in this case, called for an establishment of a Jewish home in Palestine and one which would not jeapordize the indigenous communities. This, if I am correct in my understanding, the palestinian Arabs could have handled. A Jewish "State" s opposed to a home in part of historic palestine that would have dominated Arabs who would be alienated from the very nature of that state was not acceptable. You may disagree with that but I bleieve at that point, before the late 20's, early 30's, yes, there could have been an attmept to internalize the narrative of the other.
