comment Arab population of Palestine pre-1880
Although it is difficult to answer with a precise number, certainly most of the refugees are indeed descendants, as can be read in en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… I voted to close because it seems to me that you did not do minimal research work before asking. Also, it seems to me you are adding an unnecessary frame of opinions. I suggest you edit the question. Best

I think your answer covers a really interesting aspect of the problem. However I strongly suggest to add references. Upvoted answers always have references. And welcome to history@se!

@Gangnus lol I thought you were hinting exactly at that. Nevermind, but -1 because vote is now locked.

@Gangnus I was referring to this passage: "So, they answer for crimes of Lenin as Nizsche for Hitler's." Regards.

comment Orphism's alleged influence on Christianity
I have no idea whether or not he was influenced by Orphism, but certainly some Jewish heritage of Christianity must have had a role, in that the Old Testament does not always view men and women equally. Just to add some context.

I was referring to your definition of e.g. Allende's Chile and Obama's USA as "communist" countries. This is - excuse the rudeness - unsubstantiated to the very least. This might arise from confusion about the definition of "communist" on your behalf. Even though there might be some flexibility in that there are indeed examples of social-democratic communist parties (e.g. the Italian and French CPs in their latter years) the countries you have mentioned were not communist. Chile was social-democratic, the USA are a liberal representative democracy.
