In 1967, Israel liberated land in Judea and Salaria illegally occupied by Jordan. The Arab inhabitants did not consider themselves Palestinians. From the withdrawal of the British in 1947 up till the 67 War, Gaza and the disputed lands were in Arab hands, yet they took no steps to create a Palestinian state.

The whole land of Judea is originally Jewish land. The Arabs are originally invaders from Arabia. Jewish kings ruled the land and Jewish kingdoms flourished for a thousand years. There were no Palestinian kingdoms or kings. The Koran has many passages about Jewish Kings: it never mentions the Palestinians. There is no long history of a Palestinian people.

The concept of a Palestinian nationality was invented and developed after Israel had already liberated the territory from Jordan. No country ever recognized Jordanian sovereignty over that land. Resolution 242 which ended the 67 war did not mention the Palestinians as a nationality or say their territory was occupied. The PLO was founded in the 1960s. It’s first leader, Yassir Arafat, was born in Egypt.

Please get your facts straight. The territory in Judea and Samaria that was taken in 1967 was wrested from Jordanian control after Jordan attacked Israel. The Israelis did not occupy territory of a national entity that did not then exist.
