In contrast to Israelis and many Westerners who often deny the existence of a Palestinian state, Arab Twitter users don't devotedly stand by and watch. 

After all, Israel was founded on May 14, 1948, and Arabs have grandparents who are older than that. Speaking of which, here are 20 things that are simply older than Israel:

1. A furniture store

2. Most trees in Palestine

3. Some grandparents' cows

4. A water bottle company

5. An Ethiopian airline

6. Lots of jewelry

7. A university newspaper

8. Receipts from old Palestinian homes

9. This old man and his famous quote

10. Dolly Parton

11. The Eagles, an American football team

12. All Levantine food

13. Donald Trump

14. This Palestinian wedding photo

15. This town hall in Mumbai, India

16. Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC)

17. These photos of Palestine

18. Manholes in Palestine

19. History books

20. And finally, Palestine itself is older than Israel
