    I will never understand why they don't do a genetic test on the bodies found in Massada. That would absoluely solve the issue. Refering to males only: Palestinians (80%) and Jews (70%) are both descendants of the ancient Israelites. Some Palestinians (50%) are also descendants of Jews. Diaspora male Jews (70%)are descendants of Jewish ancestors whose line separated from that of their Palestinian brothers 2000 years ago. Honestly, genetics do not lie. They are about as close to solid fact as possible when refering to ancestry. Your ancestry is recorded in your genes. There is simply no doubt that Palestinians and the Jewish Diaspora originated in Palestine/Israel longer ago than 2500 years and that their separation from one another, as populations, occured 2000 years ago. All of which completely agrees with both the BIBLE and the nonbiblical history of the area. Propagandists from both sides would rather this not be the TRUTH, but, sadly, it is the simple TRUTH.
