    Yes, many people know that both Jews and Arabs are Semitic, and come from the Middle East. Read Michenor's The Source. The area of Israel/Palestine was settled by various groups over thousands of years. Then some other group would come and and wipe them out. Then another group would come and set up a settlement. Jews and Arabs speak related languages, and share many customs- not eating pork, for example. They have more in common than they have differences, but both have a desire to occupy ancestral land.

    Hello,

    I refer to the question / answer chosen as favorite.

    The "question" constitutes a misleading-statement. 

    The Asker uses the name “Palestine”, which was used by the Romans to attempt to negate Israel / Judah as names for the land of Israel. Today the “Palestinian” Arabs and their primarily antisemitic supporters, use the name “Palestine” for the same purpose. There has never been an indigenous “Palestine” / Arab sovereign state in the land of Israel upon which the “Palestinian” Arabs could base any claim to any part of Israel.

    Who then were the Arabs living in British “Palestine” Mandate administered Israel, and who are todays "Palestinian" Arabs?

    Following the Ottoman Turkish defeat in the First World War, the League of Nations in 1922 resurrecting the name “Palestine” from Roman occupation, authorized a British Mandate; an administrative region ruled by a foreign imperial power, it was an area that later would be today’s: Jordan, Israel, and the Palestinian Territories - Please compare the second and third maps down, at:

    http://www.shamrak.com/Masada2000-HistoryofPalesti...

    JEWISH citizens were Palestinian: Irrespective of race or religion citizens of the British Mandate were “Palestinian”:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palestinians

    Extracts from three British “Government of Palestine” passports,

    from which it can be seen that JEWISH citizens of the Mandate were “Palestinian”:

    http://www.mediafire.com/file/ujn6hdhod9w07yl/Brit...

    The Media of the time referred to the British Mandate inhabitants, as:

    “Palestinian Arabs”, / “Palestinian Jews”, or as: “Arabs” / “Jews”.

    The “Palestinian Arabs” dropped the name “Arab” because they do not want you to understand they mostly originate from Foreign-Arab-Migrant-Workers who came to the land of Israel just prior to, and during the British Mandate, to take advantage of higher wages through Jewish returnee-exiles:

    “[...] most Arabs in British Mandate Palestine were migrant workers and descendants of the 1832-1947 wave of Arab/Muslim immigration from Egypt, the Sudan, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Yemen, Libya, North Africa, Bosnia, India, Afghanistan, etc. While the British Mandate encouraged Arab immigration, it blocked Jewish immigration.”

    “[...] the Zionist project was very attractive to Arabs who were drawn to Palestine by the good wages, healthcare and sanitation offered by the Jews. [...] the Arab population of Palestine increased the most in cities where there were large numbers of Jews [...]

    [British] restrictions were placed on Jewish immigration in order to appease Arab troublemakers. However, the situation regarding Arab settlement was much more lax. [...]

    the Arab population of Palestine had been in a state of flux for centuries and that the overwhelming majority were migrants from the rest of the Arab world and/or the Ottoman empire. This is important because it tells us that the postmodern notion of a deep-rooted Palestinian Arab history/culture is bogus. [...]

    This explains why, historically, Arabs never talked about Palestinian identity - because there wasn’t one. They were Egyptian, Syrian, Moroccan, Iraqi and Ottoman Arabs, and many of them expressed allegiance to the concept of a Greater Syria.”

    “Not until the Zionists had arrived in numbers did the Arab population begin to augment itself. The introduction of European standards of wage and life acted like a magnet on the entire Near East. Abruptly, Palestine became an Arab center of attraction. By 1922, after a quarter century of Jewish colonization [Jewish returnee-exiles], their [Arab] numbers mushroomed to 488,000.”

    “Which towns, villages, and cities [of the British Mandate] offered the higher economic opportunity? Analyzing the 1922 and 1931 demographic data by sub-district and separating those sub-districts of Palestine that eventually became 1948 Israel—that is, sub-districts that had relatively large Jewish populations (with accompanying Jewish capital and modern technology)—from those that were not designated as part of 1948 Israel, identified not only the direction of Arab Palestinian migration within Palestine but its magnitude as well. [32]

    [...] That over 10 percent of the 1931 Arab Palestinian population in those sub-districts that eventually became Israel had immigrated to those sub-districts within the 1922-31 years is a datum of considerable significance. It is consistent with the fragmentary evidence of illegal migration to and within Palestine; it supports the idea of linkage between economic disparities and migratory impulses—a linkage universally accepted; it undercuts the thesis of “spatial stickiness” attributed by some scholars to the Arab Palestinian population of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries; and it provides strong circumstantial evidence that the illegal Arab immigration into Palestine, like that within Palestine, was of consequence as well.”

    The “Palestinian” Arabs considering themselves Arab were opposed to being called a “people” until the 1960’s, when they decided it fitted with their intention to steal the land of Israel from its indigenous Jews:

    https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/11401/palestini...

    Why did the “Palestinian” Arabs decide to falsely-claim they are native to the land of Israel?

    The purpose of League of Nations Mandates such as the one awarded to Great Britain, was to develop the territory for the benefit of its native people:

    - - - - Start of extract: - - - -

    “Two governing principles formed the core of the Mandate System, being non-annexation of the territory and its administration as a “sacred trust of civilisation” to develop the territory for the benefit of its native people.”

    Research (2014) on 1,000 “Palestinian” Arab surnames ranked them (numbered them) in order of the highest instances of each surname found in the Palestine region. It also then identified the country(ies) having the highest incidence of those surnames; whether of “Palestine” or other countries.

    I examined the first 100 of those ranked “Palestinian” Arab surnames (from the total of 1,000 ranked surnames), which makes a 10% sample.

    Of the sample first 100 ranked “Palestinian” Arab surnames:

    16 surnames had the highest incidence in the Palestine region.

    The remaining 84 “Palestinian” Arab surnames had the highest incidence in countries other than the Palestine region, as follows:

    35 ranked surnames had highest incidence in Egypt.

    11 ranked surnames had highest incidence in Iraq.

    9 ranked surnames had highest incidence in Yemen.

    7 ranked surnames had highest incidence in Syria.

    6 ranked surnames had highest incidence in Jordan.

    6 ranked surnames had highest incidence in Pakistan.

    3 ranked surnames had highest incidence in Nigeria.

    2 ranked surnames had highest incidence in Sudan.

    2 ranked surnames had highest incidence in India.

    1 ranked surname had highest incidence in Tanzania.

    1 ranked surname had highest incidence in Saudia Arabia.

    1 ranked surname had highest incidence in Bangladesh.

    Total 84

    Brief historical background:

    The Jewish People are indigenous to their ancestral homeland of Israel, with unbroken presence from Biblical times.

    (Please see the source which I have put into the “Sources” area of this answer.)

    Israel is Re-established within the Jewish ancestral homeland:

    Map of post-Biblical Jewish Hasmonean Kingdom of Judah incl. West Bank, Gaza, and Golan Heights, capital (what is now EAST) Jerusalem / “Old City”; between 110 BCE / 754 BH and 63 BCE / 706 BH.
