The Arabs first began to describe themselves as “Palestinians” in 1964 when they adopted the PLO Charter
But lets ask a few pertinent questions:
Why is the Hashemite Klan not considered “Palestinian”? Is it because it is impossible to hide their origins in the Kingdom of the Hajaz?
As former terrorist Walid Shoebat asks: “How is it that [in 1967] I went to sleep a Jordanian and woke up a ‘Palestinian’ ?”
Lets ask another question: Why is it that Arabs living in Eretz Yisrael are “Israelis” while those Arabs living in the Jewish Tribal Territories of Judea, Benjamin, Shomron/Samaria, Gad, Reuven and Manasseh are “Palestinians”?
Another question to ask is: “By what right did the Hashemite Crown in 1988 cede to the PLO the sovereign Jewish territories of Judea, Benjamin and Shomron?”
Since the Hashemites illegally “occupied” and “annexed” the sovereign Jewish territories of Judea, Benjamin and Shomron and “ethnically cleansed” the indigenous Jewish population from these territories, it was not possible for the Hashemites to cede to the fictitious “Palestinian” people sovereign Jewish territory.
Why does that make the Arabs of Eretz Yisrael “Palestinians” or rather, perhaps the Hashemites are trying to play “slight of hand” and falsely accuse Israel of “occupying” the “Palestinians” to draw attention away from the fact that the Hashemites are a “foreign power” unlawfully occupying sovereign Jewish Territory in violation of the Mandate for Palestine and the Anglo-American Treaty of 1924?
One must ask – Why is it that the Arabs of December 1948 living in Eretz Yisrael, led by Hebron sheikh Muhammad Ja’abari voted for Abdullah I of the Kingdom of the Hejaz to be their sovereign at the Jericho Conference but the Arabs of September 1970 tried to overthrow the Hashemite Kingdom?
What makes the Arabs of 1948 different from the Arabs of, say: 1964, 1967 or 1970?
In their own words: In 1977, Zuheir Mohsen, PLO Executive Council member, articulated the goals of the new “peoplehood” strategy saying, “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…. It is only for political and tactical reasons that we speak today about…the existence of a distinct ‘Palestinian people’ to oppose Zionism”.
