Google "Internet giant Google has changed the tagline on the homepage of its Palestinian edition from 'Palestinian Territories' to 'Palestine'. The change, introduced on 1 May, means now displays 'Palestine' in Arabic and English under Google's logo. Using the word Palestine is controversial for some. Israeli policy is that the borders of a Palestinian state are yet to be agreed." Good but daring move.

I would expect reasonable people to understand that a country which existed on said land for thousands of years and protected its rights to that land against overwhelming odds would have more rights to it than a group of people who were invented 100 years ago.

Oh you mean just like the non-Jewish people that has lived on the land now known as Israel much longer than the current state of Israel has existed?
