Hams seed (Palestine) will always fight them over Shems land. This is a pretty good topic...
I didn't know Ham fathered Palestine.
For those who don't know, supposedly Noah had three children. Ham -Cham; which in Ancient Hebrew means burnt or dark...people just equate them
with black people. Shem...Noah's other son means dusky, and Japheth means fair. Now the three sons had children of their own and their children
founded tribes that grew over time. Ham fathered places like Cush..or Ethiopia, Egypt, Canaan, and Libya. It is also noteworthy that some of them,
like the Ethiopians and the Canaanites, spoke Semitic, and not Hamitic languages.
Shem fathered Mesopotamia, Arabia, Assyria, and Syria. Japheth fathered...
1. Javan (Greece, Romans, Romance -- French, Italians, Spanish, Portuguese)
2. Magog (Scythians, Slavs, Russians, Bulgarians, Bohemians, Poles, Slovaks, Croatians)
3. Madai (Indians & Iranic: Medes, Persians, Afghans, Kurds)
4. Tubal (South of Black Sea)
5. Tiras (Thracians, Teutons, Germans, Scandinavian, Anglo-Saxon, Jutes)
6. Meshech (Russia)
7. Gomer (Celtic)
Now, if you are to assume that the people of Shem made up the Tribes of Israel then you would say that modern-day Middle-Easterners is what they
looked like. Though, the problem with that assumption is a lot of people living in the "Middle East" nowadays were not there thousands of years ago.
This is the argument people make when saying the original Ancient Egyptians were black...that AE was built on a foundation created by black
Africans....and there is a lot of evidence to support that. But that's another topic for another thread. People moved around a lot in the
past...whole communities shifted. There were conquests and takeovers. Not to mention the Middle East is a very hard place to classify when it comes to
race because so many people are mixed....because the area is a crossroads of sorts.
Then the simple argument you could make is since technically there is no such thing as race...then you can't use the names of Noah's children to try
to figure out what their whole family looked like ages down the road. Becuase by the time of the Exodus, centuries...if not thousands of years had
already passed. Though, the only problem with this theory is that back in the day, people didn't travel and get around like people today...at least
not the average farmer. Citizens usually stayed within the realm of the Tribe and friendly, neighboring lands. So it is very possible that a groups of
people that was black or white could have stayed that way after 2,000+ years.
