Hi i'd love to know exactly where my people are from and how the term Palestinian originated from? Are they mix of roman, are they cananaites , levatines or phoenecians?

Finding your roots can be a rewarding experience...

There is a DNA test to ascertain heritage and perhaps that would solve your mystery!

hey there,

i assume that Palestinians, like most of the Middle Eastern region, are a combination of Phoenicians, Arab nomads (from Yaman mostly), European nomads, and African nomads (Egypt)

you can always take a gene test they are very popular..
but nothing beats actualy visiting Filastin have you been?

Actually after reading wikipedia, palestiniams originate from Levant or something. And they seem to be the opposite of nomadic since most present day Palestinians have genetic ties to the land since prehistory.
