Today’s DNA testing services such as “23andMe” allow for normal people to provide a saliva sample which is tested in a lab…..and voila!….your ancestry can be broken down into percentages with quite accurate results. 

My sister had it done, and the results were what we’d thought they’d be based on what we knew about the ethnicity of our parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents.  So how simple would it be for today’s Ashkenazi Jews to take such a test en masse to determine their percentage of Semitic heritage, and thus verify their claim on Israel?

Well, that’s been done already, and it’s not surprising we haven’t heard much about these studies.
Dr. Areilla Oppenheim of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, conducted the first comprehensive DNA study of Israelis and Palestinians in 2001. She concluded that Ashkenazi  Jews were of Mongolian 40% and Turkish 40% genome.
There was no Semitic blood connecting them to the original Middle Eastern Hebrews of 4,000 years ago in Jerusalem or Biblical territory. Jews were found to be more closely related to groups in the north of the Fertile Crescent (Kurds, Turks, and Armenians) than to their Arab neighbors.
This was confirmed by another DNA project from Dr. Eran Elhaik at the McKusick-Namans Institute of Genetic Medicine at the John Hopkins University of School of Medicine, in 2012. His conclusions were the same!
The results were consistent in depicting a Caucasus ancestry for all European Jews. The analysis showed a tight genetic relationship between European Jews and Caucasus populations and pinpointed the biogeographic origin of the European Jews to the south of Khazaria. i.e Ukraine.

At the same time, extensive DNA evidence showed that the Palestinians had 80% more or less Semitic blood in their ancestors, who were therefore determined to be the real Semites.

  1. Mr JE Alexis, misrepresenting the facts does not change them. To quote directly from her report:- (1) “…Kurdish and Sephardic Jews were indistinguishable from one another, whereas both differed slightly, yet significantly, from Ashkenazi Jews.” – NOTE Kurdish & Sephardic Jews indistinguishable and differ only SLIGHTLY from Ashkenazi Jews. (2) “… Jews were found to be more closely related to groups in the north of the Fertile Crescent (Kurds, Turks, and Armenians) than to their Arab neighbors.” – NOTE Fertile Crescent which includes the Zagros Mountain range in Iran; the birth-place of the migrant forerunners of the Canaanites and other Semitic groups. Also note the loser but clear genetic link to the Arabs whom are recognize by you as Semites (Palestinian Arabs). Dr Oppenheim’s work clear shows that almost all the present Jewish people (regardless of decent) are Semite by decent. This is exactly in agreement of the dozen+ genetic/DNA studies since 1990 by other genetic experts that show the Jewish people to be Semites (of which Dr Oppenheim’s work is one). Dr Elhaik’s work is the only research contrary to that; which has been roundly dismissed by other genetic experts in the field for among other things poor experimental-analytical design (issues Dr Elkahaik has never resolved). Sorry, but you are wrong; the present Jews are the descendants of Biblical Israel and not Khazarians(scientifically conclusively proven).

  2. Mr JE Alexis, what the Oppenheim report states and your claims of what it says are completely contrary. To quote directly from her report:- (1) “…Kurdish and Sephardic Jews were indistinguishable from one another, whereas both differed slightly, yet significantly, from Ashkenazi Jews.” – NOTE Kurdish & Sephardic Jews indistinguishable and differ only SLIGHTLY from Ashkenazi Jews. (2) “… Jews were found to be more closely related to groups in the north of the Fertile Crescent (Kurds, Turks, and Armenians) than to their Arab neighbors.” – NOTE Fertile Crescent which includes the Zagros Mountain range in Iran; the birth-place of the migrant forerunners of the Canaanites and other Semitic groups.

  3. Mr JE Alexis, are we reading the same Oppenheim report or not? . To quote directly from her report:- (1) “…Kurdish and Sephardic Jews were indistinguishable from one another, whereas both differed slightly, yet significantly, from Ashkenazi Jews.” – NOTE Kurdish & Sephardic Jews indistinguishable and differ only SLIGHTLY from Ashkenazi Jews.

  4. Just like you don’t need a weatherman to tell you which way the wind’s blowing. You don’t need 23 and Me or any genetic testing to “prove” the obvious. In fact I’d stay away from 23 and Me. As far away as possible unless you want your test ending up in some Biolab used in making a designer virus of some kind like say Covid 19.

  5. They are really creepy creatures… when someone kills a human, they will definitely know they’ve done a wrong thing, even if not regretting it, they understand this is wrong,,,,,,,,,,,, but those people, not only kill but think God has told them to do so and they’re proud of that!! “GOD”!

  6. All Quiet on the Western Front. Ashkenazi males are more adjusted to a semitic heritage, females more european, no wonder studying european history. No man on the planet wishes to get a wife with a moustache when matured.

  7. It is of at least mild interest to note according to what you may get from Youtube or Ancient Aliens, that genetic manipulation is being described to account for lapses and inconsistencies in the Darwinian model of evolution. The findings of Neanderthal and (Danician?)DNA in a certain percentage of people getting these tests. Also interesting to note is the speculation that those responsible for manipulating DNA found it necessary to cleanse the earth of these subspecies. I think I have read of some religious beliefs or society where a mother, son and baby involved involved in incest are to be killed. All conjecture.
