Again all Jews and Palestinians had the same mother 6000 years ago which is before either of the fake Jew or Arab gods got their fake names.Stop with these posts. This thread is not about DNA.( This is the best explanation one can find about what happened to all the Canaanite tribes which lived in Canaan and what happened to them)
Are Canaanites Arabs?
TL;DR: No. “Canaanite” is not a specific ethnicity, but a label for peoples who lived in Canaan in ancient times. Canaan is another name for the Levant, which is another name for the region that came to be known (after the Roman Conquest) as Palestine. Arabs came from Arabia. It is more accurate to say that most of the surviving people of Canaanite genetic extraction were “Arabized” during the Arab Conquests of the 7th century, not the other way around.
According to Biblical accounts, there were seven, separate ancient Canaanite nations, in addition to the Jews, who were also genetically Canaanite: secular scholars once thought these ”Canaanite nations” were fictitious and mythical, until archeological evidence began turning up regarding the formerly-unknown (except in the Bible) Hittite nation. Most scholars now agree there were in fact several different “nations” (ethnic groups) co-existing in the same territory known as Canaan during the late Bronze Age. People back then did not have the concept of the modern nation-state as we do now; instead, there were numerous independent city-states, of various different ethnicities, none of which had exclusive control over the entire territory known as Canaan. In addition, nomadic herding peoples traveled in and out of the region freely, interspersed among the settled cities of the various nations. All of these people could be considered “Canaanites” in the sense that they lived in Canaan.
The Jews are the only indigenous Canaanite people who retain their culture in a continuous, unbroken line from ancient times until today.
Arabs come from Arabia. During the great expansion of Islam (also known as the Arab Conquest) led by Mohammed’s followers in the 7th century C.E., Arab Muslims from Arabia spread out to invade and conquer (in the name of Islam, which was, especially then, both a political system and a religion) most of the Levant, Mesopotamia, North Africa, and so on. The peoples of those places — that is, the non-Arab nations who lived there previously — found their indigenous cultures were suppressed, and they were assimilated into the “Arab (Muslim) nation,” abandoning (for the most part) their native languages, religions, and cultures, and adopting the Arabic language, Muslim religion, and Arab culture instead.
There were, of course, exceptions. Many Christians and Jews in those regions under the Arab Conquest retained their previous religion. A few retained their indigenous languages, among them Hebrew, Amharic, Aramaic, and so on.
But, there are no modern “Canaanites.” That collection of ethnicities became extinct, except for the Jews, even before the Roman conquest of Judea (the Jewish kingdom that arose in Canaan) had occurred. The people of what is now Lebanon had become Hellenized (Greek culture) after Alexander’s conquest in the 4th century B.C.E. — speaking Greek, worshiping the Greek gods, and so on — and then became Greek-cultured, Hellenic Christians after the rise of Gentile (Greek) Christianity in the eastern Mediterranean under the apostle Paul. This they remained, until the Muslim conquest in the 7th century, when some of them remained Christian, and some converted to Islam. And, of course, a portion of the Jews, who remained Jewish, continued to live in the Levant — in “Canaan” — as well, though most of their fellow Jews had been exiled to other lands by the Roman conquest around the turn of the common era.
Genes tell part of the story, but not the whole story. Ethnicity is mostly a matter of culture, not genes. And there are no “Canaanites” today. Except, that is, for the Jews, who are and always were a people of Canaan, and who still pursue an unbroken continuation of the ancient culture they held to back then.

YES YES YES they are one of many ancient Arabs tribes . They are also known Phoenicians who migrated from south east Arabia Dilmun ( modern day Bahrain ) ,Circum-Arabian Nomadic Pastoral Complex , which means they moved due to climate crises around 6,200 BC of the hot desert ( Jarius Zarins )The are Arab people families till this day with the surnames Canaan , not found in Israel or Europe .Just who was that mother?6000 years ago all Jews and Palestinians alive today had the same mother, so genetically they are equal.It is understandable that some posters may confuse or deny the use of the word Palestinians, for a people, with the word Palestine, for a region in Ancient Canaan.
Which is it? Has a Palestinian identity and culture existed since a mass migration to Canaan 10,000 years ago, (was there such a mass migration?) or were they there since the time of Abraham, or are they a more modern creation after the Balfour Declaration, Mandate for PALESTINE, and Israel's Independence in 1948?
Was the identity created by Nasser in 1964 in Moscow with the help of the Soviet KGB? For what reason?
This is the thread to show Palestinian History before the Mandate for Palestine. The Palestinian Museum is rather silent about it.
The Palestinian Museum is an independent institution dedicated to supporting an open and dynamic Palestinian culture nationally and internationally. It also offers spaces for creative ventures, educational programmes and innovative research. The Museum is a flagship project of Taawon-Welfare...www.palmuseum.org
Palestine, the region:
The word Palestine derives from the Greek word, Philistia, which dates to Ancient Greek writers' descriptions of the region in the 12th century B.C. Since the fall of the Ottoman Empire in World War I to 1948, Palestine typically referred to the geographic region located between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River. Arab people who call this territory home have been known as Palestinians since the early 20th century. Much of this land is now considered present-day Israel.
Scholars believe the name “Palestine” originally comes from the word “Philistia,” which refers to the Philistines who occupied part of the region in the 12th century B.C.
Throughout history, Palestine has been ruled by numerous groups, including the Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Fatimids, Seljuk Turks, Crusaders, Egyptians and Mamelukes.
From about 1517 to 1917, the Ottoman Empire ruled much of the region.
Palestine is a small region of land that has played a prominent role in the ancient and modern history of the Middle East. The history of Palestine has beenwww.history.com

I cannot find one invader or visitor to the area who identified any of the population present as Palestinian. Any Arabs, Bedouin or Druze who might have called themselves or would be identified by that national identity by any of those invaders, visitors or inhabitants.
The Ottoman Census of 1831 to 1917 divides the population of the region as such:
Thanks to all who join this conversationIf a common heritage conferred peace, then perhaps the long history of conflict in the Middle East would have been resolved years ago.

It's derived from DNA telomeres I believe
I know a lot of Arab speaking Jews. None of them says Allah referring to the G-D of Abraham.I do not know which Jews would call the G-D of Abraham Allah. I have only heard Jews, from many places and languages call him by the Hebrew Heloim.Jews of Arab conquered lands call the G-D of Abraham "Allah"?Jews are a Ethnicity besides a religion.There are no Jewish Arabs, unless Arabs from Arabia converted to Judaism.It refers to Arabs. Not one of those tribes, or cultures, was called Palestinian.This thread looks for the reference, existence of a People called Palestinians, as opposed to the region called Palestine, before 1920 and the Mandate for Palestine.
Let us stick to that, please.
The term "Arab", as well as the presence of Arabians in the Syrian Desert and the Fertile Crescent, is first seen in the Assyrian sources from the 9th century BCE (Eph'al 1984). Southern Palestine had a large Edomite and Arab population by the 4th century BCE. Inscriptional evidence over a millennium from the peripheral areas of Palestine, such as the Golan and the Negev, show a prevalence of Arab names over Aramaic names from the Achaemenid period,550 -330 BCE onwards.
 Bedouins have drifted in waves into Palestine since at least the 7th century, after the Muslim conquest. Some of them, like the Arab al-Sakhr south of Lake Kinneret trace their origins to the Hejaz or Najd in the Arabian Peninsula, while the Ghazawiyya's ancestry is said to go back to the Hauran's Misl al-Jizel tribes. They speak distinct dialects of Arabic in the Galilee and the Negev.
Arab presence is one thing. Palestinian presence is another.
Even the minority of Jewish Arabs or Arab speaking Jews were called Palestinians .. so were the Palestinian Christians.
Muslims started saying that the Jews from the Arab conquered areas were "Arabs" to confuse people, and hope that the Jews would consider themselves Arabs.
In that case, Jews from Iraq would be Babylonian Jews (as they are known for having been taken to Babylon), and then the next conqueror, and the next conqueror and the next. But that is not the case.
Jews from other parts would be changing identity as well with every invading group.
That never happened because Jews are Jews.
The Arabs are Arabs from various tribes from Arabia which migrated, but kept their identity and culture through the ages.
It seems like only the Palestinians cannot find their ancestral identity and culture and have borrowed heavily from Egyptian or Saudi culture since 1920.
Jewish isn't a race. Its a religion. Arab isn't a race either. If they share the same DNA with all the Arabs in Syria, Lebanon and Palestine and speak Arabic they are Arab Jews.
Their DNA has more in common markers with Jews than with Saudis. That's the whole GD point.
You have never lived in the ME, have you? I mean you don't know anything about KSA or Libya or Kuwait or Lebanon..
The Palestinians are also related to Greeks, Turks, Romans and Crusaders... Their culture is quite unique.
Being Arab is also a Ethnicity.
The Jews were never referred to as Arab Jews until recently.
LOLOL. Did you know that Arab Christians and Arab Jews call God Allah?
Have you been anywhere in the Middle East?
I would like a link, from the Hebrew Scriptures to that.
I AM from the Middle East.
So you're Jewish. You can easily look up the word Allah and see how it is used by Arabic speaking Christians and Jews. Just choose a source you like. They use another word in Farsi and I don't know about Amharic.
Hebrew scripture would be in Hebrew, right?
Or the word from each country where they live, be it Deus, Dio, Dios, God, or whichever language.
But, this is not part of this thread.
And you continue to not answer my questions.
Like Deus, Dio, Dios or Gott, Allah is God for Arabic speaking people.
Maybe someday I will. But so far....
