Are the real Philistines Semites! In no way

Let's take a deep dive into the world's most honest history book, the Bible.
We begin in 1 Chronicles, Chapter 1. It says in verse 8, "The sons of Ham were Cush,
Misraim, Put and Canaan ». In verses 11-12 it says that Misraim was, interalia, the ancestor of the people "The Kasluhites from which the
Philistines originated". So: The Philistines are descended from Ham. The Kasluhites are also referred to in the Bible as the Crete people (and the island of Crete is named after them).
