  4. Ah...yahoo answers. The most accurate place on the internet to get answers. And who can argue with that guys source? I mean, his source is "History" so it HAS to be true, right?

    Nobody ever called Jesus a Palestinian. They called him Jewish which is what they called people from Judea. Thats why they are called Jews because of where they are from.

    The notion of "palestine" is a made-up 20th century artifice used to describe a vast expanse of the sinai desert that a few bedouin trekked across in a nomadic fashion for millenia.

    There simply is no such thing as palestine. Gaza is occupied by people of egyptian ancestry and the West Bank is occupied by displaced jordanians and some egyptians.

  7. I watched a program on National Geographic where they recreated the face of Jesus . They gave him dark hair , brown eyes and an Arab like round face. :( .

    That isn't troubling. Why would he have a caucasian/european face? It was the byzantines who made him into a white guy in their iconography.


    Judeans would have had a great deal of arab blood. Is there a problem with that?
