Shhhh, don’t tell anyone but most Palestinians come from Arabized Jewish Ancestry, not Arab. Recent DNA studies have confirmed that most Palestinians don’t have Arab genetics, but rather the same DNA genetic makeup as Ashkenazi Jews, Sephardic Jews and Mizrahi Jews.
(So I guess this means they don’t need a new state of their own, they already have one – Israel – if they give up being Muslim and go back to the faith of their ancestors. Heh!)
During the Arab invasion and conquest of the Holy Land, the 10-15% of Jews & Samaritans who remained living in the land (after the Romans exiled most Jews) were Arabized and converted to Islam in 636 AD, but yet they still kept some Jewish traditions alive in their family and culture.
Over the years many Palestinians have admitted as coming from Jewish ancestry, along with Judaic traditions in their culture. They would carve Star of Davids in their homes before 1948, they would light candles in Prayers, on Friday Nights (Shabbat), some Palestinian graves also had Star of Davids and Menorah carved. This gives Palestinians even more reason to recognize the Jewish State of Israel and to revert back to Judaism if they want to live on Jewish land currently being occupied by Arabs.
I am the Arab nation. I have stolen the laws and traditions of the people of Israel, the Jewish nation.
