All the people, Jews, Christians
The British then handed over 77% of the British Mandate land in 1921 to King Abdullah of the Hashemite tribe from Saudi Arabia. This is what then became known as Jordan. All the Arabs who were previously “palestinians” then became Jordanians. The Hashemites then came and took control of the country, even though they were a minority of the overall Arab Muslim population. You can say that the “
After Israel succeeded in defeating the attacking Arab countries that tried to destroy Israel and massacre all in the Jews in 1948, around 2 million additional “palestinian” Arabs living on the West bank of the Jordan river ran away to live in Jordan.
To this day, “palestinian” Arab in Jordan are treated like second class citizens as the speaker tells the Oxford students.
The hyopcrisy of the anti-Israel activists is that they are not pro-“palestinian”, they are anti-Israel. If they were truly pro-“palestinian” they would be active in achieving equal rights for those “palestinian” Arabs who are treated as second class citizens in Arab countries, like Jordan. Because in reality, the Arab Muslims who live in Israel are the most blessed Arab Muslims in the whole Middle East.
