@5cats, while some may be the actual ones, many jews are europeans and that's definitely not native to the place. About the direct connection, you can see it genetically, the arabs have genes perfectly suitable for the middle east, and there is no dout they lived here or hundreds of years. It is also known that at the time the middle eastern people looks exactly like the arabs (and if you separate. "Mizrahi" people) of today. It makes perfect sense that they have been here ever since ancient men passed here on the way from africa to europe. It also explains why they are so widespread in the middle east. Religion doesn`t defy what you are saying, but culture may, and from personal experience I know that there are fast cultural differences among the Israelis.

vv Nope @GasMaskKid, those people are 100% serious! They made these clips (afaik) to explain why they're sailing to Gaza to support Hamas.
Well I don`t think we can directly connect Arabic (and others) tribes from 2500 years ago (apx) with modern nations. On the other hand, the Jews ARE the same peoples as 2500 years ago. Same language, religion & etc. Muslims didn`t even exist back then! (obviously)
