"In one charter article, a "Palestinian" is defined as someone who`s father had lived in the pre-Mandate territory of Palestine. Presumably, their definition was written this way so that Arabs like Arafat, who was born, raised and educated in Egypt, could be considered a "Palestinian."" - Yardena Yardena is making things up. Here are the relevant articles from the PLO Charter: Article 5: The Palestinians are those Arab nationals who, until 1947, normally resided in Palestine regardless of whether they were evicted from it or have stayed there. Anyone born, after that date, of a Palestinian father - whether inside Palestine or outside it - is also a Palestinian. Article 6: The Jews who had normally resided in Palestine until the beginning of the Zionist invasion will be considered Palestinians. This has nothing to do with Arafat, who should be considered Palestinian by everybody. It is the Jews whose right to citizenship is minimized here to those who came in Ottoman days(?).
