Palestinian is a transliterating and translating mixed up problem, rooted in the words Philestia or Philiset for the Philistine country or nation! There was not ever a country called Palestine! PalestineArabs are the local mix of ArabistEmpire invaders with the natives called Canaanites, speaking JudaeanHebrew dialects of Canaanite, as well as the closest kin of Canaanite,Aramaic,not Arabic! There was not enough of a PalestineArabic culture or social base, till the ArabEmpire ‘s Arabizing, assimilation, to have an Arabic dialect called PalestineArabic! PalestineAtabic is ,like general Arabic,only 50% mutually intelligible with Canaanite!Canaanite is 90% mutually intelligible with JudaeanHebrew! The Genographic nationasl deep roots ancestral tests, show a similar gene pool mix, as the SyrianArab,IraqiArab and all else of The ArabEmpire environs! The PalestineArab gene pool, is as close to the JudaeanHebrew German Yiddish PATRILINEAGE, AS THE SYRIANARAB OR IRAQIARAB PATRILINEAGE! SO EVEN THOUGH THERE ARE MORE FEMALE European GENES, MIXED INTO THE JUDAEAOGERMANYIDDISH BLOOD STREAM, THAN THE JUDAEANHEBREW Mediterranean POOL, THE PLO DEFINITION OF Palestine ROOTS IS PALESTINEPATRILINEAGE,NOT MATRILINEAGE! So the average JudaeanHebrew patrilineage is as Palestine rooted as the PalestineArabs,or more!
