Why do they have a greater claim to the land than the nation of Israel?


The land recognized by the international community as theirs? Historical presence and international law. The same international law that recognized/created an Israeli state.

Israel has historical presence. Does international law not apply to them? Apparently the international community recognized them in 1948. Is Palestine a member of the United Nations?
