Because They Didn't Have Clear Title? Sure, Why Not?

Can somebody tell me why the Jordyptians think they have historical precedence in Israel, when Jews were living there thousands of years before the birth of Christ?

Seriously, I'm looking for an answer here, because I just can't see an explanation.

He's a bit off his rocker, but for the record it hasn't always been property of the Hebrews:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerusalem#History
"It was first built and founded by the Canaanites, who gave it the name Uru Salim, meaning 'the city of peace'."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canaan
"...an ancient term for a region roughly corresponding to present-day Israel/Palestine, Lebanon, and western parts of Jordan and Syria."
