If you don't like what people do to the earth today, just wait and see what Jesus has promised to do to it when He returns!
Every time Israelis hear something that contradict their origin myths, they start to scream Nazi, Holocaust, as a straw man arguement to distract the subject. Then they talk about how they will blow off the face of the earth anyone who disagrees. Such a peaceful people.
The term Semite refers broadly to speakers of a language group which includes both Arabs and Jews.

Also, genetics testing has demonstrated that the most direct descendants of the Biblical Hebrews of ancient times are today's Palestinians. This is common sense. The Semites split into Arab and Jew with the split in Abraham's house between Hagar/Ishmael on one side and Sarah/Israel on the other. This occurred too recently (in evolutionary terms) for random mutation to significantly change either group, and both groups discouraged intermarriage with other peoples until just a century ago, so in theory both groups should still resemble each other in stature, build, and skin tone.
Clearly, the Palestinians do look a great deal like their Arab brothers.
The Ashkenazi, equally clearly, do not.
