No, it wasn't the Philistines.
It was the Hittites, Girgashites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites that held the land before the Israelites drove them out.
See Exodus 23.

Indeed. The Philistines were European invaders who have no connection to the Arabs who call themselves Palestinians. And the Turks, who ruled the land prior to Israel, came from the steppes of Asia like the Huns and Mongols.
