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 .

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 .


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” ?
