my assumption was based on reading the word PLST in semitic at face
value as "invaders", assuming this was the canaanite name for them.
i admit i have no shred of evidence.
my uneducated hinch was also that the P->F and vowel changes between
PHILIST and PALAIST were quite characteristic of semitic (maybe egyptian). but
i might be totally wrong there too.
