There are NO Palestinians!

Dear Aish;
Please stop mistakenly referring to Arabs living in the Holy Land as "Palestinians". Palestine was a name of a region and never a country or a nation with it's own army, official currency or language. Gazan Arab would be the correct term referring to this individual.

is he a real jew?

to convert to judaism, one must accept to obey the laws of the torah. therefore, my question remains: is he a real jew or does he merely have israeli citizenship and use a hebrew name?

The men in this video actually look like brothers !

It is known that the DNA of Palestinians is very similar to the Jews who have always lived there.WHY is that important fact not emphasized to all Jews?
Palestinians need to know that fact also!

VERY inspiring video. It has me in tears. I wish him many years of health and happiness. May he blessed with a Jewish wife and many Jewish children. He looks like a Sephardic Jew to me! He's good for our genetic pool!
