    Samaritans are the aborigines of Samaria. Many Jews also descend from refuges from Samaria who escaped the destruction by the Assyrians. When Avraham's clan migrated to Canaan, they intermarried the local aboriginal Canaanites. For example, Yhuda (the ancestor of the tribe of Yhuda) married a Canaanite woman. DNA shows Jews, Samaritans, and Lebanese Christians all descend from ancient Canaanites. Palestinian Arab Muslims descend from Arabia. Most carry the distinctive DNA of Y-chromosomal J1 + the "Arab Muslim Modal Haplotype" common to colonialists from Arabia. Palestinian Christians descend mostly from ancient Nabateans, but to some degree from international pilgrims and even Jews. Palestinian Christians DONT descend from Arabs and ARENT Arabs.
