ABSTRACT
To Arabs, Israel is Palestine, the land of the Philistines, where their people have lived for 3,000 years. After the United Nations split the land into Arab and Jewish states, Palestinians were left homeless or under Israeli rule. Now the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) wants to overturn Israeli rule.
