    The so-called Palestinians claim to be a people that allegedly dates back to the beginning of time [with no credible supporting evidence, of course]. So, why did these so-called Palestinians never claim their own land through all of history, and have this sudden urge for statehood now?

    All the ancient civilizations in the Near East and Europe claimed their own land.
    The Egyptians claimed their own land.
    The Sumerians claimed their own land
    The Assyrians claimed their own land
    The Babylonians claimed their own land
    The Persians claimed their own land
    The Greeks claimed their own land
    The Romans claimed their own land

    The Jews claimed their state of Israel 3000 years ago when King David established Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish People and, in fact, vigorously resisted each of the empires listed above to keep their land.

    Where have these so-called Palestinians been for so long and without having claimed their own land throughout thousands and even millions of years of history?

    Palestine has been a state since 1922.

    Why is it occupied by Israel?

    Palestine was invented by the British after World War I to denote Israel under the British Mandate.

    Why haven't so-called Palestinians established their own land throughout thousands and even millions of years of history until now?

    Jews established Israel as their state 3000 years ago.

    Britain violated the rights of the native population.

    A violation of rights does not negate those rights.

    Why haven't so-called Palestinians ever established their own state over the course of thousands and even millions of years and want one now?

    Why did Israel declare statehood in 1948?

    Why not in 1848?

    Jews declared Israeli statehood 3000 years ago.

    Why haven't so-called Palestinians who allegedly go back to the beginning of time ever declared statehood?

    Er, the Ottomans occupied Israel and Jerusalem, dummy.

    Now, why didn't so-called Palestinians ever claim a state since the beginning of time?
