A Rose By Any Other Name is Still a Rose . . .

However, in this case, they are ARABS

Which is who they are: from Syria, Egypt and Iraq.

State Department changes description of Arabs residing in eastern Jerusalem . . .  now ... they are  “Arab residents” or “non-Israeli citizens,” not "Palestinians." ArutzSheva

There is NO NATION OR HISTORY of Arabs called palestinians, no culture, no identity. 

The US State Department has changed its standard description of Arabs residing in eastern Jerusalem from “Palestinian residents” of the city to “Arab residents” or “non-Israeli citizens”.

The change is reflected in an annual global human rights report released on Wednesday, according to the Reuters news agency.

The overwhelming majority of the Arabs who reside in eastern Jerusalem identify themselves as “Palestinians”. They demand that eastern Jerusalem be the capital of a future state.

State Department reports on human rights practices from 2018 and 2019 referred to eastern Jerusalem residents as “Palestinian residents of Jerusalem” in sections on civil judicial procedures, discrimination and freedom of movement.

Those same sections in the 2020 report referred to Palestinians as “Arab residents” or “non-Israeli citizens”, reported Reuters.
