When Israel entered the land, did they find people there?

Question:       Every time the Jewish people went into the land, they found people were already there. After the Exodus, did they found people there? In 1948, did they found people there?

Answer:         Yes, that’s true. It was the Canaanites in the land at that time of the Exodus and it was the Palestinians in the land in 1948. Bear in mind though, the land actually belonged to the Jews in both instances because God gave the land to the Jews for a possession forever.
