Then what are we debating about? The refute to jesus being African is that these people ARE the original population of the area. Thus he looked like them.

What happened was. You asked if they are not indigenous peoples then where did they come from. I offered those regions and you explained how that couldn’t be. Being that the Persian invaded into that area as oppose to the other way around. Fine, we’ll move on.

Yes, I am posing it at a possibility. Before you go into no evidence to support this. Know that the Egyptian empire 1450 B.C. stretched Into the Levant.

Same with Egypt but we ALL KNOW they are there.

Come on. You know this study was put together to justify the European Jews grant of the state of Israel. Showing they are still very strongly linked genetically to the peoples of the region thus proving it is rightfully their homeland.
Quote from the article with the chart:
“The analysis provides genetic witness that these communities have, to a remarkable extent, retained their biological identity separate from their host populations, evidence of relatively little intermarriage or conversion into Judaism over the centuries.
Another finding, paradoxical but unsurprising, is that by the yardstick of the Y chromosome, the world's Jewish communities closely resemble not only each other but also Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese, suggesting that all are descended from a common ancestral population that inhabited the Middle East some four thousand years ago.
Dr. Lawrence H. Schiffman, chairman of the department of Hebrew and Judaic Studies at New York University, said the study fit with historical evidence that Jews originated in the Near East and with biblical evidence suggesting that there were a variety of families and types in the original population. He said the finding would cause "a lot of discussion of the relationship of scientific evidence to the manner in which we evaluate long-held academic and personal religious positions," like the question of who is a Jew.
The study, reported in today's Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, was conducted by Dr. Michael F. Hammer of the University of Arizona with colleagues in the United States, Italy, Israel, England and South Africa. The results accord with Jewish history and tradition and refute theories like those holding that Jewish communities consist mostly of converts from other faiths, or that they are descended from the Khazars, a medieval Turkish tribe that adopted Judaism.”

It’s based on what was written in the article that went along with the chart.

That logic only applies if the studies intent is to show that the European Jews are more closely genetically related to the peoples of that area, and those people are the original people of that entire area.

To state NO historical or archaeological evidence is incorrect. Little maybe but none is incorrect. See Ipuwar Papyrus.

Not necessarily true. The Assyrian ruler Adad-nirari III invaded Syria in 806 B.C. You can’t invade into your point of origin. He died around 783 B.C.
Then Tiglath-pileser III became king of Assyria in 745 B.C. Tiglath-pileser III conquered the Syrian allies of Urartu at Arpad and the Medes on the Iranian plateau, declaring that he "smashed them like pots." Then he turned their lands into Assyrian provinces, reorganized the army by replacing conscription with permanent contingents from around the empire, and broke the power of the lords by reforming the administration into smaller districts directly accountable to the king. Massive deportations were used to break up regional loyalties. In 744 BC 65,000 Iranians were displaced, and later 154,000 were moved. 30,000 Syrians were sent to the Zagros mountains, while 18,000 Aramaeans from the Tigris area went to northern Syria. Such policies increased the hatred of Assyria, and thus rebellions would continue in the years ahead anyway.
I’m getting this from : http://www.san.beck.org/EC6-Assyria.html
After this paragraph it goes into how his son went on to deport 27,290 Israelites.

You mean didn’t intermix much on the maternal side. To intermix on the paternal would still pass the “marked Y-chromosome” on while mixing on the maternal side would introduce new Y-chromosome.

This is flawed. First the Persians don’t need to conquer the majority of Greece to introduce their Y. The Conquered Macedonia which in turn conquered all of Greece before beginning the Macedonian Empire.

Go to a petting zoo then let me know what you discovered. As far as extreme Jewfro everyone has seen those soft ass curly bouncing loches they have hanging from the sides of their hair. Burnt is burnt. Burnt is darker than your grandaddy’s irish skin after a day of working in the sun with his shirt. Now that I think about it. Irish folk are know for going straight red from being in the sun too long. I think you are making shit up. And I am talking Irish folk I know straight off the boat from Ireland.

Have you ever seen a black persons afro when wet? In the sun the beads of water caught in the tight curls make it look bejeweled. It’s still soaked and the scalp is still wet. Not the same on white folk with a loosely curled fro. That shit lay down and curl up at the end. Take some water with you on your trip to the petting zoo. You’ll see.

Not missing the point. What in the book called “God’s Word” isn’t second hand?
