Bibby's 'Blut und Boden' Arguments

Using the past
Benjamin Netanyahu ‏ @netanyahu 17 godzin temuA new study of DNA recovered from an ancient Philistine site in the Israeli [sic] city of Ashkelon confirms what we know from the Bible – that the origin of the Philistines is in southern Europe. [...] There’s no connection between the ancient Philistines and the modern Palestinians, whose ancestors came from the Arabian Peninsula to the Land of Israel thousands of years later [...] 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.
That'd be c. 1980 BC, I guess. The problem is that Israel is a state that is of modern origin, and its population in fact was created by migrations into Palestinian territory of members of separate communities from the diaspora from all over Europe (mainly Ashkenazim from eastern Europe) and the Middle East. In recent years this state has engaged in annexation of the territories of its neighbours, and maintained a policy of spilling the blood of the Palestinian people and increasing the repression when they fight back.

As pointed out on Twitter, 'If it's not abundantly clear, this is a world leader using race science to justify the continuing deliberate oppression of a people by the nation he leads'. As the Jews should know better than many other communities, the German Nazis did something quite similar in the 1930s and 1940s. It also appears, there is not actually all that much of a genetic divide between members of the Palestinian community settled in the Holy Land and the Ashkenites and Jews that moved there and claim the land as uniquely 'their own' on the basis of blood ties.

By the way, Netanyahu's father changed the family name from Mileikowsky, which means from Milikow, a village in Poland.A
