Brit-Am Anthropology and DNA Update.

Ten out of the Twelve Tribes of Israel were exiled and lost their identity. Their descendants are now to be found amongst Western Peoples. This is proven from the Bible, Talmud, and Rabbinical Sources as well as from Secular Studies in Ancient History, Archaeology, Mythology, Linguistics, and related fields. It would be expected that DNA studies also reflect ancestral links between the Gentile (in the religious sense) Peoples in question and their Jewish kinfolk. DNA should also show that the Israelite Nations of Judah and the Ten Tribes may be traced back to the Middle East Area of Ancient Israel. In the notes, comments, and articles listed below we give an inkling of the issues involved and the complexity of the subject. DNA (especially mtDNA) is determined by a combination of both environment and heredity. To what proportion of either determinant may characteristics at a particular stage be attributed is not known. Nevertheless, even relying only on what has been published and accepting conventional explanations, valid ancestral links between the Israelite Nations and the area of Ancient Israel may be shown to exist. This in itself may not proof anything but it does add to the general plausibility of what Brit-Am believes in.

1. Brit-Am Replies to Query Concerning Napoleon etc, DNA, and Free Will.
James Rowland  wrote:
In-re your article about 3. Napoleon Bonaparte [like Hitler] belonged to haplogroup E1b1b1c1* (E-M34*)..

While it is very needs to ask who else belongs to this group or how many and out of the many actually are like Hitler and Napoleon or just came out benign? For instance, middle 20th century...what about Oswald Mosley, Mussolini, Stalin, Franco, various and sundry Facists, Communist/Socialist types who gained power in Hungary, Croatia, Beligum etc? What about free will?

Brit-Am Reply:
It is not our article. We came across it on the net and like you found it interesting.
It could be mistaken.
Even if it is correct that same haplogroup E-M34* is carred by hundreds of millions of other people.
A few quotes below are followed by Brit-Am Answers to your questions.

Haplogroup E1b1b (Y-DNA)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The E1b1b clade is presently found in various forms in the Horn of Africa, North Africa, parts of Eastern, Western, and Southern Africa, West Asia, and Europe (especially the Mediterranean Spain and the Balkans).[2][3][11][12]

E1b1b and E1b1b1 are quite common amongst Afro-Asiatic speakers. The linguistic group and carriers of E1b1b1 lineage have a high probability to have arisen and dispersed together from the region of origin of this language family.[13][14][15] Amongst populations with an Afro-Asiatic speaking history, a significant proportion of Jewish male lineages are E1b1b1 (E-M35).[16] Haplogroup E1b1b1, which accounts for approximately 18%[3] to 20%[17][18] of Ashkenazi and 8.6%[19] to 30%[3] of Sephardi Y-chromosomes, appears to be one of the major founding lineages of the Jewish population.[20][Note 3]

Napoleon I belonged to haplogroup E1b1b1c1* (E-M34)
Napoleon's Y-DNA has finally been tested. He belonged to haplogroup E1b1b1c1* (E-M34), the main subclade of E-M123. They tested DNA from his beard hairs as well as DNA from one of his modern descendant, Charles Napoleon. Both belonged to the same haplogroup.

E-M123 and E-M34 have a distribution which strongly suggest a Neolithic dispersal. They peak in the southern Levant (Israel and Palestine), then seem to have spread through southern and western Anatolia, jumped to Italy, with major settlements particularly in Sicily and Sardinia, then carried on to Tunisia, Algeria and southern France. There are also minor frequencies in northern Spain and northern Germany. Overall the distribution is reminiscent of G2a(xG2a3), J1(xJ1c3) and T.
Since the beginning of this search and through different forums I gathered some interesting thoughts. One is about a familial tradition of the Bonaparte family (I am translating from a post in french) : the original name would have been Kalom?id? (greek) later translated in Italian as "buona parte" and Buonaparte , made in french as Bonaparte. The origin would be the Tr?izonde empire on the black sea ; a remnant of the greek position in Anatolia. These people would have left Anatolia when the Ottoman came in. My idea about the whole story is that M34+ is correlated with the city of Jericho on the dead sea. After the fall of this city some people were assimilated as greeks (possibly merchants) adn later went as greeks in the rest of the roman empire.

Now to your questions:
Hitler was an evil person.
Napoleon may also have been a bad man but he had a positive side to him.
We agree with you that there are bad people everywhere and that everyone has free will.
Nevertheless we also look for certain tendencies that are inherited.
Brit-Am is concerned with clarifying where the Israelite descendants of the Ten Tribes are today.
Part of this study involve a presumption that certain traits are inherited.
It could be that ultimately the science of DNA will be overturned (or drastically revised) and the role of environment found to have been much more important than is currently assumed.
Assuming it is not however we have in E-M34 a white branch of E which otherwise pertains to African Negroid peoples. This could be the same branch of CUSH that gave rise to Nimrod??

2. The German Hyperbrachycephals.

According to the Nordicist school, European achievement is primarily due to the tall, blond, dolichocephalic race. The only problem with this theory, which achieved such popularity in the 19th and early 20th centuries, is that when the skulls of prominent Europeans and Germans were measured there was no evidence of an overrepresentation of dolichocephals among them: indeed, most of them were brachycephalic, many of them tending to the extreme hyperbrachycephalic form, as the following passage illustrates.

Friedrich Hertz, Rasse und Kultur: eine kritische Untersuchung der Rassentheorien, 3. ed., Alfred Kr?er, Leipzig, 1925, p.163

UPDATE (2 March 2008)

Franz Weidenreich, "The Brachycephalization of Recent Mankind", Southwestern Journal of Anthropology, Vol. 1, No. 1. (Spring, 1945), p. 9.

One can imagine the shock an intelligent German reader suffered when he remembered that many of the great German heroes from Bismarck down to Hindenburg and Hitler were brachycephalics and even hyperbrachycephalics, and that the three greatest philosophers Germany has produced-Leibniz, Kant, and Schopenhauer-had round heads in the most extreme form (Fig. 2, No. 4, Leibniz, skull index 90.3[!]; NO. 5, Kant, skull index 88.5; No. 6, Schopenhauer, head index 90.0 [!).

3. More evidence of genetic discontinuity between Neolithic and modern Europeans

Here is more ancient DNA from the Danubian Neolithic.

The remains come from the Great Hungarian Plain and date from circa 6000 BCE, so approximately 500 years before the Linear Pottery Culture (LBK). They are therefore the oldest Neolithic DNA from Europe so far, and the second from Hungary (Haak et al. 2005 found a single N1a1b sample). This time they were able to test 23 samples and identify five haplogroups. All of them are extremely rare in Europe today : N9a, N1a, C5, D1/G1a and M/R24.

This is an astonishing array of haplogroups to say the least. Although N1a has popped up frequently in Neolithic sites from Western and central Europe before, and is still common in the Caucasus nowadays, the others are typical of various regions Asia and not normally found in the same population.

- N9a has a very wide range. It is found all the way from East Asian (including China, Japan, Vietnam, Thailand and Malaysia) to Eastern Europe, via Central Asia.

- C5 is more typical of Northern and Central Asia, but is also found at very low frequencies in Eastern and Central Europe.

- D1/G1 : G1 and D1 are both typical of Siberia and Northeast Asia.

- R24 is normally found in the Philippines (never heard of other places), so it's probably a mistake.

I cannot see how any of these haplogroups besides N1a could be of Near Eastern origin. It's more likely that a group of Siberian or Central Asian Palaeolithic nomads reached Hungary and were absorbed by the West Asian herders/farmers who had barely arrived in the region.

Unfortunately the abstract doesn't say how many individuals of each haplogroup there were. I suppose that N1a was in higher proportion than the rest.
