Who was born in “Palestine” ?
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 ?
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’atAda , British Mandate of Palestine .

ARAB “PALESTINIAN” LEADERS:
