OK, there is also confusion on jewish v. hebrew - the jews didn't exist, according to their own mythology, until the hebrews got out of bondage and decided to dedicate themselves to their god and become jews. Both hebrews and arabs are semites, a term for humans who evolved for the deserts in what is often referred to as the levant, wih big noses for the dryness etc, and they have hated each other since before the hebrews got into bondage in the first place. And nobody knows how they got there (into slavery and far away from their home), but the chances are that either the people who hated them sold them, or that they were captured in a war and taken by the people who ended up bonding them, but then why didn't they take the arabs too, and either way you have resentment between the hebrews and the arabs. Then you add in a god who has chosen the jews, and forget rational discourse between the 2... so back at the dawn of time when people are talking about the Mess o'Potamia they should not talk about jews, that is an anachronism.
