I have heard that the archaeological community has seen signs that the Philistine peoples, specifically (distinct from other Cannanites) were either a settler Mycenean Greek state or strongly influenced by them. Greek raiding and pirate activites were pretty common in the Mediterranean of the time, and it does not seem impossible on its face.

Yes, Helen and I had a wack at the topic in this thread. 2nd millennium trade flow has become quite the controversy upsetting classicists. Greek-speaking people weren't the only "pirates" settling/colonizing/destroying ports along the Mediterranean, Black, and Baltic seas.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
