Aristocra, the name “Palestine” is linked to the ancient Philistines. In the modern era, the British used the name to refer to the region in the 19th and 20th centuries that they later occupied after the Ottoman defeat in World War I.
But what about the Arab people who live in that region.
I saw one video on YT by CaspianReport(who I consider pretty good about reporting world events and history) and he explained that the Palestinian People are actually Jordanians(which technically makes them Syrians, because Jordan was created from part of Ottoman Syria).
I know that two political strains of Pan-Arab and Pro-Nationalist have exist within Palestinian politics, but was the concept of a “Palestinian Identity” a response by local Arabs to Zionism?
