Why do the so called Palestinians refer to themselves as Palestinians when there is no such a people and never was?

    That is correct. Palestine is a geographical area, not an ethnic group.

    I guess it would be like me referring to myself as a Chicagoan, since I am from Chicago. But that is not a race, or a religious group, or an ethnic group.

    Why do they do it? I don't really know.

    You are correct. There really was never any people who were called Palestinians. They are Arabs like Egyptian and Jordanians. The word Palestinians refers to the region. Not a people.

    They started using "Palestinian" in 1967.

    People say that Arabs Are really stupid. But that was a clever propaganda move
