Your assertion comes from the

Your assertion comes from the thoroughly discredited Joan Peter's book, From Time Immemorial. Norman Finkelstein, a Jewish American political scientist and son of Holocaust survivors, destroyed her reputation and her case in his senior dissertation. He showed in his book, the title of which I don't remember, how she created a false case and misinterpreted data. The Palestinians are NOT Syrian or Jordanian, or Egyptian. Of course, there is always some mixture, but they are largely from the Holy Land and not the surrounding nations.
