First sentence of third paragraph says this:
The biblical Hebrews are symbolized by the Cain and Abel story, brothers who fell out with each other and whose lineage became the two factions we know as Jews and Arabs.
Cain killed Abel. Abel was murdered by his brother he did not from the lineage of anyone. I think the author meant to say Isaac and Ishmael, the sons of Abraham. It's just funny that an article meant to correct people's ignorance starts off so wrong.
"Be a listener only, keep within yourself, and endeavor to establish with yourself the habit of silence, especially on politics." -Thomas Jefferson
