Genetic Roots of the Ashkenazi Jews

Genetic Roots of the Ashkenazi JewsGenetic 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.
By Kate Yandell | October 8, 2013

The majority of Ashkenazi Jews are descended from prehistoric European women, according to study published today (October 8 ) in Nature Communications. While the Jewish religion began in the Near East, and the Ashkenazi Jews were believed to have origins in the early indigenous tribes of this region, new evidence from mitochondrial DNA, which is passed on exclusively from mother to child, suggests that female ancestors of most modern Ashkenazi Jews converted to Judaism in the north Mediterranean around 2,000 years ago and later in west and central Europe.

The Ashkenazi Jews make up the majority of Jews today and most recently have ancestry in central or Eastern Europe. Previous work has demonstrated that just four mitochondrial types, pass down from four mothers, account for 40 percent of variation in Ashkenazi Jews’ mitochondrial DNA, and some researchers have published evidence of Near Eastern origins for these Ashkenazi mitochondrial types.


Remember the above the next time someone says being against Israeli fascism is being "Anti-Semitic". It is rather impossible to be Anti-Semitic towards people like Netanyahu (an Ashkenazi) simply because he and most Israelis are not descended from Semitic people.

But the Palestinians ARE Semitic people. So now you know who the REAL anti-semites are. :o


Exposing the Dark Underbelly of Israel: The Horrors Your Tax Dollars Support
Max Blumenthal's new book "Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel" details the horrific reality Israel has created for the Palestinian people.

October 16, 2013   |

Drop the New York Times’ international section and pick up Max Blumenthal’s new book. If you want to peel back the layers of deception pro-Israel groups and the media have created, Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel is the perfect place to start. It’s the bluntest book you’ll read about the state of Israeli society, as it looks deep into the soul of an ethnocracy that dominates the lives of millions of Palestinians.

Blumenthal’s book, based on four years of on-the-ground reporting and research, takes the reader from the occupied West Bank to prisons for African refugees to Palestinian areas within Israel. Through a series of profiles and vignettes, he paints a devastating portrait of a country obsessed with demographics bent on permanently subjugating the non-Jews who live between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River.

Last week, AlterNet sat down with Blumenthal for a conversation about his book. We spoke about the current state of Israeli society, his method of reporting and what readers will learn about Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as negotiations with Iran and the Palestinians continue.

Alex Kane: The headlines are largely dominated by other political problems in the Middle East: Egypt, Syria. So what’s the importance of a book on Israel at this moment?

Max Blumenthal: I wrote this book because I wanted to show Americans what they’re paying for. Every American's relationship to Israel can be summed up as money for nothing and checkpoints for free. We’re giving them $30 billion over the next 10 years to guarantee their qualitative military edge over all other countries. We also have to see Israel’s role in destabilizing the Middle East and in seeking to ensure that U.S. policy guarantees that Israel’s Arab neighbors are weakened and that the people of the Arab world can’t determine their own future.

That’s why Israel had such a comfortable relationship with Hosni Mubarak—because he was a Western and Gulf puppet who was helping to participate in the siege of Gaza and why Israel is so excited about the coup that ousted Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood. The Brotherhood might have ceded to US demands to police the Sinai, but now with Sisi, the crackdown on Gaza is much more extreme. They have filled up possibly 80 percent of the tunnels that bring vital food and medicine and even fish into the Gaza Strip, which is shocking considering that the Gaza Strip is a coastal territory -- they must import fish through tunnels because they’re not allowed to fish. And now we're seeing Egyptian naval forces join the Israeli navy in arresting Gazan fishermen.

Now the coup regime in Egypt has committed a series of massacres which were inevitable as soon as they took power on July 3. They massacred non-violent Muslim Brotherhood demonstrators, especially in the Rabba area of Cairo--they killed over 1,000 people. And the U.S. has been threatening to withdraw some military aid to Egypt--of course, they’re not going to fully hold this regime accountable for the massive human rights crimes it's committing. And Israel all the while has been demanding veto power over the United States’ efforts to hold Egypt accountable. The Israeli government is enthralled with Sisi's coup regime and the Egyptian military, and it will do all it can to see the US fund it and prevent it from being held accountable. So to see Israel as this normal, European country that exists completely independently of the chaos in the Middle East is completely bogus.

And the other reason is much more simple: that we are paying for the only open ethnocracy in the world, and its entire existence and its domination and control over the lives of millions of Palestinians and the exclusion of millions more Palestinians simply because they’re not Jews. The whole fate of all these people who are living between the river and the sea, mired in misery and refugee camps, is in the hands of the American people and Washington.

That was page 1 of an 8 page blockbuster article at AlterNet. Read the rest here 


Pope Francis Prays at Apartheid Wall, Calls for Palestinian State

Posted on May 26, 2014

This post originally ran on Juan Cole’s Web page.

On Sunday in Bethlehem, Pope Francis called for recognition of an independent Palestinian state.   CNN reports that he asked for “the acknowledgment by all of the right of two states to exist and to live in peace and security within internationally recognized borders.”


This terrified child has wetted his pants! 




Twitter photo showing Israelis 'cheering' Gaza bombing goes viral

--- Quote ---The image was retweeted over 8,000 times as of Saturday afternoon, with many reacting with shock and disgust.
--- End quote ---

I celebrate this reaction. But will the Jews of good will in the USA start doing elementary math and add TWO (US financing of Israeli Barbarism) + (Barre Seid Israel champion type billionaires financing both Israel AND GW denial) = Psychotic Suicidal Fascist F**ks for a F***ed up planet?

Will they decide to reject the "modern" accepted and "rational" apex predator world view that S**T CANNED ETHICS for SHORT TERM PROFITS is the way DARWIN and FREUD "proved" a species ensures viability for its future generations?

OR, will they accept the death of billions of humans so a few million Israel firsters MIGHT survive a biosphere collapse that will make an economic world collapse look like the difference between the Mount St. Helens eruption and a riot at a rock concert?

Will they see the DANGER to Homo SAP of so many biosphere species extinctions along with a radical reduction in DNA diversity among humans when reduced to Jewish, mostly Ashkenazi, genotypes?


Those are NOT a rhetorical questions...

AND the economic WORLD power to vote with their MONEY is nothing to sniff at.

--- Quote ---count of Forbes Israel‘s list, with Jewish billionaires as a fraction of the country’s total number of billionaires:

US 105/442 = 24%
 Israel 16/16 = 100%
 Russia 12/99 = 12%
 Canada 6/29 = 21%
 Brazil 6/45 = 13%
 UK 5/37 = 14%
 Ukraine 3/10 = 30%
 Monaco 3/3 = 100%
 Australia 3/22 = 14%
 Spain 2/20 = 10%
 France 2/24 = 8%
 Germany 1/58 = 2%
 Hong Kong 1/39 = 3%


--- End quote ---

Our very survival as a species may depend on whether the Jews of good will in this country (and the world) decide that math trumps blind Lemming Loyalty and use their political clout to help stop BOTH murderous outrages to common decency.   

Never mind just the billionaires, the rest of the ethnically Jewish in our country pack a gigantic political clout. The CHOSEN PEOPLE are NOW the CHOOSING PEOPLE.

You had better hope the oft repeated saying, "But is it good for Jews? (i.e. whatever ISRAEL wants, ISRAEL gets.)" is modified to "Is it good for a VIABLE BIOSPHERE so the Jews have a FUTURE?". If not, HOMO SAP is definitely going the Guy McPherson route.  (

It is ironic that the CHOSEN people's CHOICE may be the STRAW that breaks the biosphere camel's "BACK", so to sadly speak.  :(   

God help us...
