Because Palestinians have honour unlike you and some of your ancestors who sold their souls to the British by joining T. E. Lawrence's militia against the Ottomans in WW1. The revolt led to the British occupation of Lebanon and Palestine which were provinces of Ottoman Syria.
The British occupation of Palestine led to the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948 after more than half of Palestine's native population close to 800,000 was uprooted. Jews who held 3% of the land and constituted 12% of the total Palestinian population in 1933 ended up..
..capturing more than 80% of the area in 1948. Palestinian sources, combining Israeli military archives have listed 31 confirmed massacres of Palestinians by the Zionists beginning with the massacre in Tirat Haifa on 11 Dec 1947 and ending with Khirbat Ilin on 19 Jan 1949.
Another historical fact is about the Hashemite family who fought alongside the British in WW1 against the Ottomans. In reward for their services to the crown, the Hashemites had been granted the kingdoms of Iraq and Jordan that the Mandate system had created.
After WW2, Abdullah, scion of the Hashemite royal family colluded with Ben Gurion over how to divide post-mandatory Palestine. Abdullah promised not to join any all-Arab military operations against the Jewish state. The Jewish community was ‘willing’ to give up West Bank....
..even though it included some biblical Jewish sites, such as the city of Hebron (al-Khalil).

Jordan had the strongest army among the Arabs so this collusion was a significant victory for Ben Gurion in carrying out the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians.
