In lengthy speech to visiting young German leaders, PM says that Arabs lived in Palestine 100 years ago, ‘but not many’

Recounting the early days of the Zionist movement, Netanyahu said that not many people lived in Palestine at the time. In the middle of the 19th century, the country “was largely depopulated,” he declared. “There were Arabs but there were not many. In the 19th century, this country was a backwater of the Ottoman Empire.”
