There are 6 comments on the WFTV Orlando story from Aug 8, 2018, titled Palestinian-American candidate is source of West Bank pride Source: AP. In it, WFTV Orlando reports that:

The Michigan primary victory of Rashida Tlaib, a Palestinian-American who is expected to become the first Muslim woman to serve in the U.S. Congress, triggered an outpouring of joy in her ancestral village on Wednesday. Relatives in Beit Our al-Foqa, where Tlaib's mother was born, greeted the news with a mixture of pride and hope that she will take on a U.S. administration widely seen as hostile to the Palestinian cause.

What is a Palestinian???? Wouldn't it be more accurate for her to call herself an Arab American?

Not if she is Palestinian. Was she born here? Is she here legally? She will win, because that District is Muslim.

Again,what is a Palestinian? There is not now nor has there ever been a Country called Palestine.... There WAS an area where Israel is now that after WWI was called the territory of Palistine. It did not have an organized Gov't,rather it was a loose alliance of various Arab/Bedouin tribes. European Jews after WWI migrated to the region and bought land from the various tribes,usually swamp lands the Arabs didn't want. The jews spent years draining the swamps and improving the lands they had bought...... More Jews came and bought adjoining lands to improve. This in essence was the beginnings of Israel. While the indigent Arab Natives call themselves Palistinian they related more to their clans than a National (Palistinian) identity......
