I saw a documentary a couple days ago in which they showed a film clip of an early arab leader talking about how the opposition to Isreal didn't identify itself as palestinian until they decided to make a historical claim on the land.
Prior to that they didn't consider themselves anything other than Jordanian or Lebanese.
The whole issue of a Palestinian State is one fabricated specifically to oppose the state of Israel.
I can't seem to find any followup details on the web.
Anybody know anything about this?
I wish I could remember the arab leaders name, then I might find the quotes.
