Paul doesn't like Palestinians??

Further, it's really a mistake to say that Arabs in general are semitic people. This assumption is based on the fact that Arabic and Hebrew share some very close linguistic similarities. Due to this and some Biblical references, some thought early on that Jews and Arabs were directly related.

I never said they were. Palestinians are semitic people. Look up the definition of semitic, you will not see anything closet to what you said in your first paragraph. And I used it properly.

What I think is really interesting though is that some studies have been done and apparently Palestinians and Jews are very closely related genetically.


It's a semantic thing I suppose.

It refers to peoples and languages. I considered what the Zionists have done to Palestinians as very anti-semitic.
