    Jews are the oldest surviving claimants to "that Land" (i.e. Israel). Nobody else even comes close. In fact, that land is important to other faiths precisely because it was holy to Jews and Jews built the first two temples there. Judaism is 3000+ years old (starting from Moses) or 3700 ( starting from Abraham). Abraham's birthplace in Southern Iraq was Chaldean and had no Arabs (or Jews) Your reference to Abraham as an Arab is all the more amusing since it is apparently sourced from Genesis. For such an avid reader of the Bible, you are rather selective in your quotes. Now Philistines, as Darth says, are of Greek origin and settled on Gaza's coast. They were wiped out by Babylonians (notice: not Jews) even prior to destruction of Solomon's Temple. Canaanites, a Hamitic people, are no longer around (they were, it appears, done in by the Israelites). Arabs are, obviously, from the Arabian peninsula. If all this ancient history is too old for some, is the modern state of Israel current enough ?
