    Now I'll provide one for you:


    As I stated earlier, ethnically, Israelis and Palestinians come from the same, mixed genetic heritage. The division between the two societies is cultural and political, not ethnic. Although there is some cross over between ancient Egyptians and the Canaanites, they are NOT the same as the dark skinned Arabs of Egypt today, and they do NOT, historically, or genetically, come from Egypt.

    Palestinians are NOT Arab. That was the name given to them by the British empire. Scroll to page 8 of the research paper to see a family tree of Palestinian relatedness to other peoples in the region.
    You got the right info but made the wrong conclusion.
    Arabs and Jews both come from the Semite race.
    Hence why Palestinians being Arabs would indeed make the statement that they are close to; Jews, Lebanese, Egyptians, Armenians, Iranians and Turks - true.
    Apocalypse made the claim that Palestinians came from Egypt and that's why they are Arab. He's wrong.
    You should be careful what you're quoting, buddy.
    I have not made the claim that all of the Palestinians share Egyptian blood, I have obviously stated that most of the Gazans share Egyptian blood.
    To directly quote from my post here:

    Gaza is mostly of Egyptian blood

    Calling the Palestinians Arab is no different than calling Israeli's Arab. It makes no sense.

    Please do research on the Canaanites to better understand their ethnic makeup.
    Canaanites don't exist anymore, Jews have exterminated them when they have conquered the land 3,000 years ago.
    The Palestinians are the Arab citizens of the Arab nations that have conquered this area during the Arab Imperialism age.
    I was at Tunisia last summer, the people there look exactly like the people in the West Bank, and exactly like the people in any other Arab nation.
