Which Muslim Leaders were born in ‘Palestine’ ?

*

Some people say that Arab Muslims are “native Palestinians“, while Jews are “invaders” and “settlers“. 

But when I read the biographies of Israeli and ‘Palestinian’ political leaders, I was confused.

Who was born in ‘Palestine’ ?


ISRAELI LEADERS:

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’at Ada, 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.


MUSLIM ‘palestinian’ LEADERS:

YASSER ARAFAT, Born 24 August 1929 in Cairo, Egypt

SAEB BERAKAT, 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.

MAHMOUD AL-ZAHAR, Born in 1945, in Cairo, Egypt.

Just to refresh your memory, the state of Israel was borne on May 14, 1948, following the Balfur (British Minister for Foreign Affairs) on 2 Nov. 1917 and the British victory over the Ottomans who ruled Palestine for almost 200 years, and were the German Allies in W.W I.

So following the Zeise Picko pact, in 1920 the British received from the U.N the Mandate to rule over Palestine and care for the Jewish Home Land.

Therefore, Palestinians are those who were born in ‘British Mandate of Palestine’ up to 14 May, 1948

***

Israeli leaders, who were born in Palestine are “native Palestinians” (NOT “settlers or invaders”)

The *first* Muslim ‘palestinian’ Leaders were born in Egypt, Syria, Iraq and Tunisia, and THEY were the *invaders* and *occupiers* of the Jewish State of Israel.  

Yasser Arafat
