    The Philistines were either Egyptian or an indo-hellenistic people from near Crete, but in the academic world definitely not considered Jewish or Arab. Arabs and Jews of course would have a similar DNA because both are semitic. The Philistines have not existed for three thousand years. The word Palestine is the Latinised word the Romans used to tick off the Jews. A Palestinian was anyone who was living in Israel at the time of the British mandate. Could be Jewish, Greek, Armenian, Arab whatever. The Soviets began to support the PLO during the Cold War era and popularised the term Palestinian and the PLO and Soviets fought together to rid the land of democracy and the Jews. The ethnicity and historicity of their claims have been challenged by academics but now because of political correctness, smoke and mirrors the Palestinians are a 'rich culture' and not many academics have the balls to challenge them. Bottom line - Its hard to trust, deal or talk with people who say hoodna out of one side of their mouth and salaam out of the other!
