Hmm, heard they were of Greek origin. Seems like it (in part) based on this study.

Kind of awkward for Palestinians that their ethnonym is linked to Greek pirates. :lol:

Yh, the Romans named that geographic area Palestine after the second Jewish rebellion to humiliate the Jews.

Its about small population movement and the fore-bearers of name Philistine, but the Palestinian people are home to the region.

There are so many ancient genomes from Israel, but so few from Africa. Hmm, makes you wonder.

I believe human life started in Middle East not Africa .
Trololol,

Too much evidence of it starting in East Africa.

Israelis are obsessed with analyzing all their ancient bones because of the politics there (who owns it) and the bible/religious implications.
