    As for Arabs, Herodotos tells of them in his Histories, c. 444 BC, and speaks of "Syria Palaestina," the name used by Greeks and Romans for the area. How about Acts II.12, where, among all the peoples living in Jerusalem, are mentioned "Arabs?" It is in the New Testament, I am not making this up. Also, since the Arabs, led by Om'r I, conquered Jerusalem from the Byzantines in AD 638 and the Turks began overrunning the Anatolian territory in 1071, making Christian pilgrimages, which had been tolerated by the Arabs, impossible, which caused the First Crusade. So Arabs had been in that territory much longer than Turks, you should also read about the Nabataeans. Please get your facts straight, the truth will obliterate the smoke screen of wishful thinking and outright inaccuracies.
