Who Are the Palestinians?

The Palestinians are not related to the Biblical Philistines but rather an Arab people group. The term “Palestine” was introduced by the Romans in 135 AD to erase the Jewish connection to the land of Israel, but Jews continued to live there. There is no historical or archaeological evidence of a Palestinian national identity but a consistent Jewish identity and presence in the land of Israel.
