Thought-provoking article, which shows good understanding of current politics. However, the notion that Arab Moslems are the original inhabitants of Israel is simply false (unless you believe that Arab Moslems are Philistines; but then you probably also believe that Jews are Canaanites). In Roman times the population was very mixed. With the collapse of Roman, Byzantine and Apostolic Christians dominated Israel, although there was also a Jewish population. When the Caliphate invaded Israel, they were constantly in fear of a Christian resurgence, which eventually happened during the Crusades. Egyptian Mamluks eventually overcame the Christians, but were more interested in destroying Christian population than in replacing it. After 200 years, the Mamluks were defeated by the Turks. During all this time the population of Israel was very small. The last Turkish census counted 80,000 Jews and 120,000 Arabs in Israel + Jordan. Neither population was a majority due to the large number of other long-time inhabitants: Circassians, Apostolic Christians, Byzantine Christians, the very powerful Druze, Samaritans, etc.
When the British defeated the Turks in World War I, they augmented the Moslem population considerably by bringing in Muslims from other parts of the British empire, to balance the rapidly increasing Jewish population. So it is useless to speak about aboriginal populations. If there were such a thing, it would be either Jewish or Christian. However, all of that is too much subject to each person's personal narrative to be of any value. The rights of Israeli Arabs derive from their presence here, not from any historic priority. The same applies to Jews, Apostolic Christians, Byzantine Christians, Armenians, Circassians, Druze, etc. etc., all of whom have deep roots in Israel (sorry if I did not mention your favorite ethnic group, but there are too many to remember them all). We must get along because we are here and we are not leaving. That goes for everybody. This is the only constructive way to move forward. This is addressed to everyone: Arabs, Haredim, secular Israelis, and all minorities.
