Fascinating details about the roots and ancestors of the Jewish people.
Thank You DI Behan.
Educate with history, facts, and truth!
If anybody needs help answering the “Lebanese are the true Canaanites” claim, just show them this chart.
It’s a PCA plot, done by the same guy who published the “Lebanese are predominantly Canaanite” story last year. And as you can see, Ashkenazi and Sephardi Jews both tightly hug the Lebanese Druze and Christian samples. Some of the Ashkenazim have a slight northern pull, reflecting their East European admixture (read: Cossack rapes), whereas the Lebanese samples (especially the Muslims) have a southern drift, towards Arabians. The Ashkenazi, Sephardi, Druze, and Levantine Christians are so enmeshed with one another (especially Ashkenazi and Sephardi) that it’s almost impossible to tell them apart. Palestinians and Syrians, by contrast, appear to be genetically indistinguishable from Arabians (although some Syrians plot near Western Europe).
And if that’s not evidence enough, diaspora Jews – both Ashkenazi and Sephardi – are closer to the Samaritans than any other group, even though Samaritans have virtually no European DNA (they are half-Israelite, half-Assyrian).
All that being said, DNA alone does not make a people indigenous. Root culture, tribal identity/recognition, language, and ethnogenesis are equally important, and Jews (regardless of where their ancestors lived in diaspora) meet all of the criteria, down the line.
