The earlier study, led by Dr. Michael Hammer of University of Arizona, showed from an analysis of the male, or Y chromosome, that Jewish men from seven communities were related to one another and to present-day Palestinian and Syrian populations, but not to the men of their host communities.
The finding suggested that Jewish men who founded the communities traced their lineage back to the ancestral Mideastern population of 4,000 years ago from which Arabs, Jews and other people are descended. It pointed to the genetic unity of widespread Jewish populations and took issue with ideas that most Jewish communities were relatively recent converts like the Khazars, a medieval Turkish tribe that embraced Judaism.
"It is not taught in Israeli schools but most of the early Zionist leaders, including David Ben Gurion [Israel's first prime minister], believed that the Palestinians were the descendants of the area's original Jews. They believed the Jews had later converted to Islam."
We're not speaking of the half nor the third of the whole arabian world here, but rather of something like O.5 % of what the late Ottoman Empire ever was... wherein nothing like "Palestine" never was spoken about.
Titre du document / Document title The Scythian invasion of Palestine Auteur(s) / Author(s) MEDVEDSKAYA I. N. ; Résumé / Abstract Herodotus' account of the Scythian invasion of Palestine echoes three events of the 7th c. BC. This is, in the first place, some threat from the North to the inhabitants of Syria and Palestine, mentioned in the earlier prophecies of Jermiah (620ies BC). The data of cuneiform sources and the analysis of geopolitical situation in this region make it possible to assume that under the northern threat the prophet meant the threat of Cimmerian intrusion. In 670-640ies the Cimmerians were active at the western borders of the Assyrian power.
Proof Of King Solomon's Temple? -- Pottery Fragment May Hold Oldest Mention Outside Bible By David Briggs AP NEW YORK - A recently discovered piece of pottery, recording a donation to the "House of Yahweh," may contain the oldest mention outside the Bible of King Solomon's Temple. The 3 1/2-by-4-inch artifact is nearly 3,000 years old, dating to a time when kings sent messages inscribed on pottery. It is unclear where it was discovered and how it made its way into the antiquities market and later to London collector Shlomo Moussaieff. But extensive testing has convinced several scholars of its authenticity. "This doesn't prove the Bible, but it does vividly provide a context and a reality to the world of the Bible," said Hershel Shanks, editor of the Biblical Archaeology Review, which reported on the find in its November-December issue. "It just provides a reality that is somewhat stunning in its way." Solomon's Temple was generally believed to have been built sometime in the 10th century B.C. It lasted for four centuries until it was destroyed by Babylonian soldiers. The Bible frequently refers to the temple by the Hebrew term for "the house of the Lord." But that term has been found complete in only one inscription other than the Bible: a faded shard of sixth-century B.C. pottery from Arad, an ancient town now in modern-day Israel, Shanks said.

You don't remember I posted in your so-called debunked thread. And the genetic evidence clearly states not. en.wikipedia.org...(Y-DNA) Palestinians share a closer bond with the local Arabs then they do with the Jews. Obviously not debunked.
Palestinians, like most other Arabic-speakers today commonly called Arabs, are said to combine ancestries from those who have come to settle their respective regions throughout history and the pre-existing ancient inhabitants; a matter on which genetic evidence described below has begun to shed some light.
American historian Bernard Lewis writes:
"Clearly, in Palestine as elsewhere in the Middle East, the modern inhabitants include among their ancestors those who lived in the country in antiquity. Equally obviously, the demographic mix was greatly modified over the centuries by migration, deportation, immigration, and settlement. This was particularly true in Palestine..."
(Y-DNA) Palestinians share a closer bond with the local Arabs then they do with the Jews.
Ali Qleibo, a Palestinian anthropologist, explains:
"Throughout history a great diversity of peoples has moved into the region and made Palestine their homeland: Jebusites, Canaanites, Philistines from Crete, Anatolian and Lydian Greeks, Hebrews, Amorites, Edomites, Nabateans, Arameans, Romans, Arabs, and European crusaders, to name a few. Each of them appropriated different regions that overlapped in time and competed for sovereignty and land. Others, such as Ancient Egyptians, Hittites, Persians, Babylonians, and Mongols, were historical 'events' whose successive occupations were as ravaging as the effects of major earthquakes ... Like shooting stars, the various cultures shine for a brief moment before they fade out of official historical and cultural records of Palestine. The people, however, survive. In their customs and manners, fossils of these ancient civilizations survived until modernity—albeit modernity camouflaged under the veneer of Islam and Arabic culture."

Secondly because Al Husseini was the name of the so called Mufti of Jerusalem, which during WW2 a closed ALLIE to a certain Adolf Hitler was.
Fourth, 'cause letting a few millions of persons being sacrified in the name of the Husseini* dynasty's megalomania is just an endorsement of a/ the Martyr (spiritual - see "Palestinian" TV - as well as physical) b/ the hole ABSURD anti-zionism stuff and its very NAZI ROOTS.
The Jewish families' origins are in Galicia, Podolia, Crimea, Belarus, Lithuania and Latvia -- the Pale of Settlement; five are Levites. In Puerto Rico, one recently learned of possible Jewish ancestry; those from Germany and Hungary suspected it, but do not consider themselves Jewish. Today, the families live mostly in the United States and United Kingdom.
The families share rare Y-DNA anomalies as well as the 37 "markers," making a common ancestor a virtual certainty, company founder Bennett Greenspan says.
Huebscher "has applied the genetic genealogy breakthrough in exactly the way I dreamed. He broadened his approach, cast a wide net and found a tight group of genetic cousins," Greenspan says.
Y-DNA, carried only by males, doesn't change except for minor mutations. This Y-DNA is transmitted by father to son, for thousands of years.

How about making the whole area becoming a world heritage site like Antarctica so no one can live there.

However, Nebel et al. (2001) report that Jews were found to be more closely related to north of the Fertile Crescent (Kurds, Turks,Iraqis and Armenians) than to their Arab neighbors. While the Arabs were found to be related to Arabian Peninsula.The study proposes that ...the Y chromosomes in Palestinian Arabs and Bedouin represent, to a large extent, early lineages derived from the Neolithic inhabitants of the area and additional lineages from more-recent population movements. The early lineages are part of the common chromosome pool shared with Jews. According to our working model, the more-recent migrations were mostly from the Arabian Peninsula, as is seen in the Arab-specific Eu 10 chromosomes that include the modal haplotypes observed in Palestinians and Bedouin... The study demonstrates that the Y chromosome pool of Jews is an integral part of the genetic landscape of the region and, in particular, that Jews exhibit a high degree of genetic affinity to populations living in the north of the Fertile Crescent.
