Valistina

Whilst we're wreading Ilya Yakubovich, we should linger over what he says about "Walistina". It's the 'Amaq in what's now the Islamic State; the marj Dabiq.

There was a Palestinian people, a qawm Filastini. This people was a Luwian-speaking people along that bend of the Mediterranean, probably infused with Mycenaean / Cypriote Greeks en route to conquering Gaza and Ashqelon. When the Babylonians took over (Nevo)Philistia, and stuffed it with "Canaanites" from the north, I suspect many of those "Canaanites" might have been Canaanised Valistinians - from their own homeland.
