When it comes to Israel, the world seems to be upside down.
I always said that the true Palestinians are the Jews, always remembering in my youth that the Jerusalem Post was originally called the Palestine Post and we would always refer to Palestine when collecting funds for the Jews living in Palestine to defend themselves against the Arabs. נושא:הועבר: HELP ME PLEASE – I AM CONFUSED!

ARAB “PALESTINIAN” LEADERS :
YASSER ARAFAT, Born 24 August 1929 in Cairo, Egypt
SAEB EREKAT, Born April 28, 1955, in Jordan. He has Jordanian citizenship.
FAISAL ABDEL QADER AL-HUSSEINI, Born in1948 in Bagdad, Iraq.
SARI NUSSEIBEH, Born in 1949 in Damascus, Syria

So, if I understand this correctly, the Israeli leaders, who were born in Palestine, are called/considered “Settlers” or more accurately, “Occupiers.” While Palestinian Arab leaders who were born in Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Iraq and Tunisia are called “Native Palestinians”?
THAT makes perfect sense.
