I'm Confused...Who of Israeli or Palestinian leaders were born in Palestine?

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU, - Born 21 October 1949 in Tel Aviv 
EHUD BARAK, - Born 12 February 1942 in Mishmar HaSharon, British Mandate of Palestine
ARIEL SHARON, - Born 26 February 1928 in Kfar Malal, British Mandate of Palestine 
EHUD OLMERT, - Born 30 September 1945 in Binyamina-Giv'at Ada, British Mandate of Palestine.
ITZHAK RABIN, - Born 1 March 1922 in Jerusalem British Mandate of Palestine.
ITZHAK NAVON,Israeli President in 1977-1982. Born 9 April 1921 in Jerusalem, British Mandate of Palestine.
EZER WEIZMAN, - Israeli President in 1993-2000. Born 15 June 1924 in Tel Aviv, British Mandate of Palestine.


Born 24 August 1929 in Cairo, Egypt 
SAEB EREKAT, - Born April 28, 1955, in Jordan. He has the Jordanian citizenship. 

FAISAL ABDEL QADER AL-HUSSEINI, - Born in1948 in Bagdad, Iraq. 

SARI NUSSEIBEH, - Born in 1949 in Damascus, Syria. 
MAHMOUD AL-ZAHAR, - Born in 1945, in Cairo, Egypt. 

So, Israeli leaders, who were born in Palestine, are “Settlers or Invaders”?

While Palestinian Arab leaders who were born in Egypt, Syria, Iraq and Tunisia are “Native Palestinians”???!!!


Work it out.....!!!


  1. great article ... I couldn, t state it better myself

  2. I could not put it better myself.
    Before 1967, the only people known as Palestinians - were jews.

  3. Goebels had said it:"Repeat a lie many times and it will become a truth".
    That's what the "Palestinians" Arabs have been doing since several decades now.
    You should circulate this post throughout the world,so that the world learns the truth
    Kudos to you for daring tell the truth that the Arabs want s all to forget.

    Hastaroth from Greece

  4. It's not the leadership. Most Palestinians are descended from Ottoman Circassians, Algerians, Egyptians, Iraqis, and Turks. Yet they claim they have lived there for as much as 9000 years. It's the biggest put-up job in history.


    It has never been the name of a nation or state. It is a geographical term, used to designate the region at those times in history when there is no nation or state there.

    The word itself derives from "Peleshet", a name that appears frequently in the Bible and has come into English as "Philistine". The Philistines were mediterranean people originating from Asia Minor and Greek localities. They reached the southern coast of Israel in several waves. One group arrived in the pre-patriarchal period and settled south of Beersheba in Gerar where they came into conflict with Abraham, Isaac and Ishmael. Another group, coming from Crete after being repulsed from an attempted invasion of Egypt by Rameses III in 1194 BCE, seized the southern coastal area, where they founded five settlements (Gaza, Ascalon, Ashdod, Ekron and Gat). In the Persian and Greek periods, foreign settlers - chiefly from the Mediterranean islands - overran the Philistine districts. From the time of Herodotus, Greeks called the eastern coast of the Mediterranean "Syria Palaestina".

    The Philistines were not Arabs nor even Semites, they were most closely related to the Greeks. They did not speak Arabic. They had no connection, ethnic, linguistic or historical with Arabia or Arabs. The name "Falastin" that Arabs today use for "Palestine" is not an Arabic name. It is the Arab pronunciation of the Greco-Roman "Palastina"; which is derived from the Plesheth, (root palash) was a general term meaning rolling or migratory. This referred to the Philistine's invasion and conquest of the coast from the sea.

    The use of the term "Palestinian" for an Arab ethnic group is a modern political creation which has no basis in fact - and had never had any international or academic credibility before 1967.
