The Truth about Palestinians

Does history back up the claim that Palestinians are indigenous to the land of Israel? Promote peace for both peoples; not lies that drive them apart.

Sources

I wish these videos would include sources (possibly as easily seen print at the side of the scene) where the viewer can authentic what is said. Without that, it's just words against words, and no reason to believe one set of words over the other.

Hadrian was the 1st to "formally" use the term Palestine?

This video says at 38sec, that Hadrian was the first to formally use the term Palestine, but it seems like Rome, received the tradition from Greece. The frequency of the usage of this term "Palestine" by Greece would seem to show that the name Palestine is a formal title. Good thing we don't hold our standards by the worldview of the nations, but by Hashem!
wikipedia says:
The first clear use of the term Palestine to refer to the entire area between Phoenicia and Egypt was in 5th century BC Ancient Greece, when Herodotus wrote of a "district of Syria, called Palaistinê" in The Histories, which included the Judean mountains and the Jordan Rift Valley.In the treatise Meteorology c.340 BC, Aristotle wrote, "there is a lake in Palestine". This is understood by scholars to be a reference to the Dead Sea. Later Greek writers such as Polemon and Pausanias also used the word, which was followed by Roman writers such as Ovid, Tibullus, Pomponius Mela, Pliny the Elder, Dio Chrysostom, Statius, Plutarch as well as Roman Judean writers Philo of Alexandria and Josephus. Other writers, such as Strabo, referred to the region as Coele-Syria[a] ("all Syria") around 10-20 CE.

Country smaller than counties.

There are 20 counties in the United States that are larger than the country of Israel. This small place is larger in success than nations in this world. Given what great gifts we are given to the nations, can this small Country smaller than counties be ? It just does not make sense to oppose her. This is a spiritual battle, the land MUST NOT be divided. If the nations were not drunk on spiritual madness they would expand her by 12X12.
