Actually, most Jews are not descendant of the ancient Israelites. It's absurd to claim that. DNA tests only prove that a minority of Jews (30% at most) show Mediterranean genetic links, but this could prove anything, not necessarily Israelite lineage. Taking into account that the exodus was never such, that most Jews remained in Galilee and even Judea after the Roman wars, and that before those wars there were already more Jews outside the Holy Land than inside, thanks to mass conversions, the only conclusion is that most modern Jews are descendants of converts and that Palestinians are ironically the descendants of those famous ancient Israelites.
