    UTW, it is "politically correct" to call certain Arabs 'Palestinians' because that is how they refer to THEMSELVES. There is a problem: ever since 1948, 'Palestine' is not a legally valid term anymore. As a legal entity, Palestine existed from 1917 to 1948. Those who stubbornly continue calling themselves 'Palestinians' apparently forget that they - or their ancestors - had legal Jewish 'Palestinian' neighbors in those years. More importantly, they also wish to deny and even annihilate the fact that formerly 'Palestinian' Jews and Arabs TOGETHER have built a blooming nation which is now commonly known as ISRAEL. In essence, people who deviously present themselves as Arab 'Palestinians' (rather than as Arab refugees) wish to rewrite history, but without the Jews or their accomplishments in it. They want the Jews, who legally dwell in the land, to either leave or die. One wonders why? After all, apart from certain individuals, the land is neither wholly Arab nor Islamic.
