Palestines were the Philistines or Pleshet. They were one of the tribes of the Sea People that came from the Aegean zone (Anatolia, Greece and Crete). So they were arian, and is ironic as the palestines say they are brothers of the arabs.Also it is ironic because the Sea People were mostly pirates.
