    Your entire thesis is based on the official Israeli propaganda that blinds you and others to see the truth. Jews had teo states in the Land of Israel; the last collapsed 2000 years ago. Arabs have a continuous presence in the land for 1600 years and probably before that when the Canaanites co-inhabited the Land with Judeans. You cannot dismiss either. But remember, that the State of Israel was founded on the basis of UN resolution which also called for a Palestinian state. Even though the Arabs in 1947 rejected the resolution it does not diminish their rights on the land they inhabited. Every subsequent UN resolution reiterated the right of the Arab population to their state. Historical events are important for national identity and pathos but are not in themselves a factor in international law. No matter whom the Palestinians choose as their leader, the people are now interested in a peaceful settlement. Even Haniya stated that he would not oppose a Jewish state in the 1967 borders.
