Mr. Khalil Tufakji the expert. According to the article: "He heads the cartography department of the Arab Studies Society, established in 1980 to document the social, political and cultural history of the Palestinians." Interesting that it started in 1980, you see prior to that there were no Palestinians. What culture? What language? What money? What president before Arafat? What country? They are Arabs no different from any other Arab. This myth of the Palestinian Arab. According to the PLO leadership this is what was said in 1977: "Zahir Muhsein, a member of the Palestine Liberation Organization executive committee, told the Dutch newspaper Trau on March 31, 1977: The Palestinian people does not exist . . . . The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct "Palestinian people" to oppose Zionism.
