Genetic Roots of the Ashkenazi Jews; Most Ashkenazi Jews descended from prehistoric EUROPEANS. #FREEPALESTINE #BDS

Genetic Roots of the Ashkenazi Jews Most Ashkenazi Jews, traditionally believed to have descended from the ancient tribes of Israel, may in fact be maternally descended from prehistoric Europeans.

Surprising Discovery that Ashkenazi Jews Descend from Europeans  A new study published in the leading journal Nature Communications has discovered that Ashkenazi Jews, a Jewish ethnic group who trace their origins to the indigenous tribes of early Israel, have a maternal lineage that comes largely from Europe.

Surprise: Ashkenazi Jews Are Genetically European

Ashkenazi Jewish can largely trace their maternal heritage to Europe, new research finds. That contradicts earlier studies suggesting that most Ashkenazi heritage traces to the Near East.

DNA research sheds light on ancestry of Ashkenazi Jews

Many of the maternal ancestors of modern Ashkenazi Jews were European converts, according to new research. Analysis of DNA samples has shown that on the female line, the Ashkenazim are descended not from the Near East but from southern and western Europe.
