Who of Israeli and palestinian arabs´ leaders 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 arabs political leaders, and was confused.

    Israelí leaders.

    Igal Allon. Interim Prime Minister of Israel in 1969

    Date of birth 10 October 1918

    Place of birth Kfar Tavor, Ottoman Empire, Palestine

    Isaac Rabin. Prime Minister. Date of Birth 1 March 1922

    Place of Birth Jerusalem, British Mandate of Palestine.

    Benjamín 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.

    Izhak Navon, Israeli President in 1977-1982. Born 9 April 1921 in Jerusalem, British Mandate of Palestine.

    Ezer Weizman. Israeli President in 1993-2000. Born on 15 June 1924 in Tel Aviv, British Mandate of Palestine.

    Arab palestinian leaders.

    Yasser Arafat. Born 24 August 1929 in Cairo, Egypt( Cairo, in case someone does not know this, is the capital of Egypt and Egypt is not in Palestine. It´s not even in the Middle East; Egypt is situated in Africa.)

    Mahmud az-Zahar. Born in 1945, in Cairo, Egypt.

    Saeb Erekat . 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

    So, Israeli leaders born in Palestine are “invaders” and “settlers”- while palestinian arab leaders born in Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Tunisia are “native palestinians”.

    More than a half of those arabs who say they are native palestinians, starting with Arafat himself, were born out of Palestine.
