Abraham came from modern Iraq, which was Chaldean, not Arab. Philistines (not to be confused with Phoenicians, of famed alphabet) a people thought to be related to Greeks, lived on the coast (Gaza, etc.). The rest of the land was populated by Canaanites. Philistines were wiped out by Babylonians 2500 year ago. Canaanites disappeared before that (probably killed by Israelites). Most Jews are exiled by Rome 1900 year ago, who rename the land "Palestine" after Philistines to wipe out the memory of the Jews. Arabs emerge from their peninsula 1300 years ago and conquer all of ME. The land continues to be called "Palestine" in political circles, e.g. by Turks and Christian powers. The local Arabs adapt the name for themselves in the 60's.
