Some people say that Arabs are "native Palestinians", while Jews are
"invaders" and "settlers".  But I read the biographies of Israeli and
Palestinian political leaders, and I was confused. Who of Israeli or
Palestinian leaders were born in Palestine?

ISRAELI LEADERS:

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.


ARAB PALESTINIAN LEADERS:

YASSER ARAFAT, Born 24 August 1929 in Cairo, Egypt

SAEB ERAKAT, 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, born in Palestine, are “settlers or invaders,”  while
Palestinian Arab leaders who were born in Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Tunisia are
“native Palestinians” ?
Please read and pass on, my dad got it by e-mail.

The problem, as I understand it, is that the term 'palestinian' doesn't really have any geographical meaning. It has a political meaning, which goes something like, "anyone who lives around Israel and doesn't like Israel." lol. But geographically... in terms of maps and history (and, well, common sense) there isn't any such animal as Plestinian.

That is just a political comment.  Even ancient history shows the land has always belonged to Israel.
