Prove it. Never mind....that's ridiculous. As if the Palestinian refugees constitute some kind of threat to American or British sovereignty? You're just blowing smoke now.
A very large delivery of US weaponry to Israel consisting of 3,000 tons of "ammunition" is scheduled to sail to Israel. The size and nature of the shipments are described as "unusual":
The United States will sell Israel nearly 5,000 smart bombs in one of the largest weapons deals between the allies in years. The deal is valued at $319 million and was revealed in a Pentagon report made to the U.S. Congress a few weeks ago. Funding for the sale will come from U.S. military aid to Israel.

A new pathetic low. I'm going to have to report this. If you like you can start your own thread with that subject in mind.
To pepsi. Please stop drawing false conclusions because if you scroll to the bottom of the link it will tell the genetic conclusion reached by scientists.
These documented historical events, together with the finding of a particular Eu10 haplotype in Yemenis, Palestinians, and NW Africans, are suggestive of a recent common origin of these chromosomes.
Remarkably, the only non-Arabs in whom this haplotype has been observed to date are the Berbers (Bosch et al. 2001). It appears that the Eu10 chromosome pool in NW Africa is derived not only from early Neolithic dispersions but also from recent expansions from the Arabian peninsula.
We wish to thank Dr. Elena Bosch (University of Leicester, United Kingdom) for providing haplotype information on the NW African populations. This work was supported by a research grant from the Israeli Ministry of Science, Culture and Sport.
Simply put the so-called Palestinian people have more in common with Arabs then to the land of Israel. That is a fact I'm sorry if you believed other wise.
Another note thanks mods for not doing anything. I asked you twice to try to keep this thread civil free from bull#.
Palestine is a name which has been widely used since Roman times to refer to the region between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River. In its broader meaning as a geographical term, Palestine can refer to an area that includes contemporary Israel and the Palestinian territories, parts of Jordan, and parts of Lebanon and Syria. In its narrow meaning, it refers to the area within the boundaries of the former British Mandate of Palestine (1920-1948) west of the Jordan River. Wikipedia

We arm the Israelis and the IDF uses those weapons to destroy the Palestinians.
If a common heritage conferred peace, then perhaps the long history of conflict in the Middle East would have been resolved years ago. For, according to a new scientific study, Jews are the genetic brothers of Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese, and they all share a common genetic lineage that stretches back thousands of years.
Are you serious we have been arguing for how many hours and you don't know my point Or maybe you just cant help with the logical fallacies, like your strawman and an ad hominem attacks right above
I will say this one last time. The people living the westbank and gaza, the so-called Palestinians, are not Palestinians. Palestine is just a name. They do not have any claim to the civilizations of that land. They are Arabs. Genetic evidence proves this.
It shows the connections they have with other Arab peoples through the eu10 marker.
I am sorry but genetic evidence does not lie. Thank you.

Please provide me with a quote that says EU10 has become distinctive.
Palestinians shared 20%–46% of their chromosomes with the four non-Arab populations. Thus, the genetic distinctiveness of the Palestinian Arabs is mainly seen in the presence of specific high-frequency Eu 10 haplotypes not found in non-Arab groups.
That makes absolutely no sense. If it became distinctive it would not be called eu10.
Another thing, I have said over and over that there was an Arab migration early and later on.
I provided that quote a hundred times. But the people in the Neolithic period where completely distinct before the Arabs came many years later.
We propose that the Y chromosomes in Palestinian Arabs and Bedouin represent, to a large extent, early lineages derived from the Neolithic inhabitants of the area .....
Painted pottery was not made by the Arabian Neolithic people though coarse red ware may have been manufactured by them in the Central Gulf region. The stone tools of the Arabian Neolithic are different from the Ubaid material -- tending to be made from shorter flakes which have been chipped on both sides. This local tool-kit is called the Arabian Bifacial Tradition ...
