Yes, there are Christians in Palestine

The vast majority of Christians visiting the Holy Land of Israel, only visit the “Dead Stones” sites like the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem built over the site where, it is believed, Jesus was born. The “Living Stones,” the Palestinian Christians, who live there are only heard by a fraction of the tourists to Israel. Dr. Darryl DelHousaye, Chancellor of Phoenix Seminary asked Tom Compton of We Hold These Truths to provide a video with messages from “Living Stones of the Holy Land” that will serve as a supplement for members of the tour that he is leading to Israel.

And today in 2014, a Jewish scientist named Eran Elhaik, Ph.D., has proven with mitochondrial DNA, published as recent as 2013, that those who call themselves Jews today are in no way descendant from the Jews of original Israel. That bloodline has been gone for over a millennium. Most of the modern people who live in the state called Israel are descendant from ancient European women. The rest of today’s Jews evolved from the Arabian middle east, Spain and Africa, where they migrated to escape persecution. For your reference see these websites. and from Cornell University. Dr. Elhaik, a confessed Jew, has a website here.
And after Jesus returned to the right hand of God, but before He came in judgment on those who called themselves Jews, but were not, Jesus told John this about the Jews, who hindered His church.
Revelation 3:9 “Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.”
Christ Jesus, let John know He was protecting those of His newly forming church here on earth, and was passing judgment against the Jews of that time. They were no longer a privileged people to God, and for that matter they were not even Jews anymore, but by self proclaimed name only did they brand themselves, and still do to this day.
Romans 11:32, Galatians 3:22 and for that matter there were no more Gentiles either,. All nations were counted under sin
Luke 19:43 “For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, 44 And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.”
Luke 23:28 “But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children.”
Matthew 23:38 “Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.”
In Luke Jesus also warned those who would listen, about God’s vengeance.
Luke 18:7 “And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? 8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?”
Luke 21:20 “And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. 22 For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.”
