    I was under the impression that many Arabs considered themselves the descendants of Ishmael before Islam even arrived on the scene. It's certainly the belief in modern day Islam.

For this reason, I think it likely that the so-called Palestinian "Arabs" are really Hebrews who switched religions and languages.

    At any rate, Palestinians almost certainly look more like the Hebrews than lily-white European Jews.
    There are probably some other groups mixed in and that is the case with the various Jewish peoples as well. What is little known is that for a long time Jews proselytized with such effectiveness that at one point a fifth of the population of Rome was Jewish and Rome banned proselytizing to prevent the population from growing further. As Jews are generally expected to marry other Jews this has embedded their original Middle-Eastern roots in most populations, but I would not be surprised if the Israeli Jews are more closely related to those populations where the communities were present prior to making their Aliyah.

    Where exactly in Mein Kampf did Hitler say "Jews are too white"? I am pretty sure that would be antithetical to the whole Aryan narrative.

    The Palestinians are a hodge-podge of mostly Muslim migrants who moved to Palestine over the last 1,200 years.

    this includes: native Palestinians, Arabs, Berbers, Turks, Kurds, Bosnians, Egyptians, Persians, and others.

    While it is a common tactic to demean and diminish the other side's local ethnic heritage, it is usually the case that the population within an area maintains prominent lineage to the original inhabitants. No doubt immigrants to the area interbred with the local population, but the Palestinian population inevitably retains a significant level of heritage from the Hebrews.

    I'm aware there was a quite a bit of reactionary Jewish proselytisation when Christianity arrived, but a fifth of the population? You got a link?

    there is no evidence of that.

    may Jews were sold as slaves after the Roman destruction of Judea, and many more chose to move into the rest of the Roman empire. there is simply no evidence that the Palestinians retain significant Jewish heritage.

    there is no cultural or historical evidence for this.

    nevermind the fact that Ashkenazi Jews don't look like Turks.
