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?
Might as well save your energy. It's no good trying to have an intelligent debate with someone who refuses to look beyond their own religion.
