You are right, still, the Jewish people is the only people around here with the longest kept culture and beliefs. "palestinians" are 99% regular muslim arabs, they do NOT represent Canaanites or whatever. Canaanites disappeared as an ethnicity and even from this region as I previously posted with sources etc. They were moved in by Jordan (west bank) and egypt (gaza). All very well recorded on any serious source you look at.
