Netanyahu uses DNA claim to deny Palestinian right to homeland

Middle East Monitor

Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu yesterday tweeted that the Palestinians’ connection to the Land of Israel is nothing compared to the 4,000 year connection that the Jewish people have with the land. He cited a recent article stating that Biblical Philistines had come from Europe, according to DNA uncovered in the coastal city of Ashkelon. 

His attempt to delegitimise the Palestinians’ right to their homeland was criticised by many as “race science”, which is often promoted by extreme right-wingers to justify ethno-nationalist policies.

One Twitter user questioned the validity of Netanyahu’s “scientific” argument, comparing it to phrenology, the pseudoscience which involves measuring bumps on the skull to predict mental traits and has since been entirely discredited by scientific research.

Another challenged Netanyahu on Israel’s policies towards Ethiopian Jews. Last week, an unarmed Ethiopian Jewish teenager was killed by an off-duty police officer, sparking protests by the community accusing the Israeli police of racism.

Yet another Twitter user drew a historical parallel with apartheid South Africa, when white settlers would use similar arguments to justify the apartheid policies of forced population transfer and segregation. Others looked to Nazi Germany as a historical parallel, where eugenics and race science were used to justify the genocide of the Jewish people.

Writing no doubt with tongue planted firmly in her cheek, another Twitter user suggested the absurdity of Netanyahu’s argument by comparing it with the “connection” that Mongolians have to Hungarian territory because they lived there in the 1200s.

Meanwhile, Netanyahu’s son Yair was filmed speaking at an event for devout Christians in Alabama this weekend, trying to erase Palestinians’ identity by saying that they had originally migrated from other parts of the Middle East, as proven by such surnames as those which mean “Egyptian” and “from Aleppo”. Netanyahu Junior also faced criticism, and was compared to his father because of his extreme rhetoric.

He is known for his offensive behaviour on social media. Last December, Facebook banned him for 24 hours after he posted a series of anti-Muslim and anti-Palestinian posts which broke the social network’s rules on hate speech.

In April, he claimed that Palestine never existed because there is no “P” in the Arabic language, leading many people to criticise and mock him for his ignorance. In Arabic, of course, Palestine is pronounced “Filisteen”. And yes, there is an “f” in the Arabic language.

    EVERYTHING WRITTEN AND SPOKEN ABOUT THE JEWS BEING A “RACE”, IS A LIE. THE BIBLE SAYS THAT THE “ISRAELITES” WERE THE CHILDREN OF JACOB, RENAMED ‘ISRAEL” BY THE LORD. THE “HEBREWS WERE AND ARE A FAMILY OF PEOPLE. NOT A “RACE”. NOT A “RELIGION”. THE ONLY WAY TO BE AN ISRAELITE TODAY, OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH IS BY ADOPTION… OUTSIDE OF CHRIST, THERE ARE NO TRUE “JUDEANS;
    Gal 4:1  Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; 
    Gal 4:2  But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father. 
    Gal 4:3  Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world: 
    Gal 4:4  But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, 
    Gal 4:5  To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. 
    Gal 4:6  And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. 
    Gal 4:7  Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
    THERE ARE NO “JEWS”. CHRISTIANS THAT OBEY THE GOSPEL ARE THE LAST “JUDEANS”.

    TO ENSURE THAT THIS “FAMILY” WOULD BE DESTROYED, GOD ALLOWED THE ROMAN ARMY TO DESTROY JERUSALEM IN 70 AD, DESTROYING ALL RECORDS OF “LINEAGE” OF THE “JEWS”.

    Rom 10:11  For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. 
    Rom 10:12  For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. “THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE JEW AND THE GREEK.” OR ANY OTHER ‘GENTILES” FOR THAT MATTER.

    WE ARE ALL NOW “MANKIND” IN GODS EYES;
    ct 17:24  God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; 
    Act 17:25  Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; 
    Act 17:26  And hath made of ONE BLOOD (cps mne) all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

    Israeli geneticist Eran ElHaik, who has proven that Palestinians have MORE Israelite DNA than Benny the Yahoo’s Ashkenazim ancestry and buddies–Ashkenazim are from JAPHETH, not SHEM–would not approve of his message.

    • KOYOTE says:

      “ASHKANAZIS” ARE OF RUSSIAN KHAZARIAN DESCENT. THEY ARE IN NO WAY RELATED TO THE FAMILY OF “ISRAEL”.
      YOU ARE STILL THINKING “RACE”. GO READ THE BIBLE THAT THEY USE TO TRY TO JUSTIFY THEIR EXISTENCE, AND YOU WILL FIND THAT “ISRAEL” IS NOT A RACE. IT WAS AND IS A FAMILY, AND THOSE “DNA TESTS” ARE NOTHING BUT HOAXES.
      AND IF THOSE ARABS ARE “THE JEWS”, AND ISRAEL IS A “RACE” THEN WHY WAS THE LAST PRIEST/ KING OF ISRAEL, WHO WAS JESUS, WHITE, WITH BLONDE HAIR AND A BLONDE BEARD?(ACCORDING TO PONTIUS PILATES LETTER TO CEASER)

    WE ARE THE “CHILDREN OF ABRAHAM” BECAUSE WE BELIEVE GOD, AND ACT ON THAT BELIEF.
    IT HAS NOTHING WHATSOEVER TO DO WITH “RACE”.

    as 2:20  But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? 
    Jas 2:21  Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? 
    Jas 2:22  Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? 
    Jas 2:23  And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. ABRAHAM WAS JUSTIFIED BY THE WORK HIS FAITH HAD BROUGHT. NOT FROM THE WORK ITSELF. YOU CANT “WORK YOUR WAY TO HEAVEN”. THIS IS NOT THE SAME AS OBEYING GOD, JUST SAYING……
    JN8:39  “They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham.”

    Lmfao, I have to laugh when a European jew tries to discredit Palestinians because philistines came from Europe. Allow me to point out that yes philistines did in fact come from Europe as did the Roman’s who lived there for many years. The land was named Palestine by the Roman’s after the philistine people. Some Palestinians have philistine ancestry. However, not all do. Most are of canaanite, samaritan or Arab origin. Netanyahu himself noted how arabs conquered so much of the middle east and north africa but tries to point to a very small line of philistine blood to try and make it seem as though all of Palestine is based on that. Typical sheisty, trickster con artist jew move. And it works on those who don’t know better. But I do. And as for the fact of there being no p in the Arabic language, that is true and as the article points out, it’s pronounced “falasteen”. However, there is no J in the Hebrew alphabet. So according to their logic, “jews” don’t exist either right? Careful kikes, don’t throw stones when you live in glass houses. Your day is coming soon.

    Dumb sh#t needs to read Prof. Shlomo Sands’ ‘Invention of the jewish People’.

    HAHAHAHA!!! Oh man, Bennie is twisting the true origin history of the Jews onto the Palestinians and using it as a way to play his “victim” card again. What a pathetic coward. He’s so desperate and has to stoop this low because he has no more cards on the table to play.
