    The Origin of Palestinians and Their Genetic Relatedness With Other Mediterraneans

    "An explanation of the Egypt-to-Greece migration may be that a densely populated Sahara (before 5000 BC) may have contained an admixture of Negroid and Caucasoid populations, and some of the Negroid populations may have migrated by chance or unknown causes towards present day Greece".

    What do you think about that?

    Re: The Origin of Palestinians and Their Genetic Relatedness With Other Mediterranean Pop

    Well Greeks have a high level of Hg E3b, which is found in African populations, such as Ethiopia or North African Berbers. Anyway I wouldn't classify this haplogroup as Negroid, as it seems to be linked to the Caucasoid Neolithic migrations from the middle East.

    As for some connection between Palestinians and Greeks and other European populations, well, Canaan has been occupied by quite a lot of different peoples, including European. Philisteans who lived in what's now the Gaza strip, were an Indo-European speaking population, they descended from the "Sea People", European pirates who devastated the whole Eastern Mediterranean, even attacking the Egyptian Empire and putting an end to the Micenean civilisation, they were probably of Greek origin.
    Other European influences were the Classic Hellenes, the Romans, the Byzantines, or the Franks.

    But as a whole Palestinians seem to be a classic Middle Eastern population, only about 15% of the Y-haplogroups found in Palestine are of Paleo-European origin.
