The Basques have been in Europe for 4,000 years which means that they
predate Moses, and perhaps even Abraham.  If the Basques and Celts are
genetically related then they have nothing to do with Semitic history.

But then we already knew that.  Only the nincompoop and his friends
who have a zillion mutually-contradictory stories about the
prehistoric Irish think otherwise.  You've posted that the Irish are
descended from the Milesians who were clearly NOT "Israelites" since
they supposedly claimed descent from a daughter of Pharoah and came
from afar to visit Moses.  Then you claim that they were associated
with the "Israelite colony" of Galacians who unfortunately showed up
in Turkey several hundred years after there was no more kingdom of
Israel, and was formed by two companies of mercenaries from Gaul.  Now
you pull a new site that says that the Irish were from the tribe of
Dan.

All this despite 200 years of solid linguistics research showing that
there is utterly no relationship between Celtic and Hebrew.

>Do you see the pattern emerging here from the DNA studies, cary?

Yes.  The Jewish priests indeed remained true to their orders to keep
distinct, even when they mixed with other tribes including black
Africans.

You mean EUROPEAN

Or what you would expect if successive ways of Asians pushed into
Europe AS RECORDED IN HISTORY, pushing the indigenous populations that
had been here for millennia into the mountains on the furthest west
portions of the continent.

History does NOT support your fairy tales.

No they don't which is why the find is noteworthy.  One PARTICULAR
tribe, which had a tradition that they were led from the Holy Land by
Jewish priests, seems to have genetic properties of Jewish priests.
Africans in general don't have those genetic properties.  Thus the
Lembus are only part-African.

Confirming what I said, that the Hibernians and Basques are unrelated
genetically to the rest of Europe.  (This means that even if the
ancient Irish were Israelites - which they aren't - then the Germans
and Russians weren't related to them).

Oops.  Black Ethiopians have Caucasian genetic traits.  There goes
another racist myth.

Oops, some of the British have been there for 10,000 years, which
means that they predate the Flood.

Read that last number. Compare with your "Israelite" theory of
Danites.  Figure out how the Danites were teleported back in time
8,000 to 12,000 years.

One would think that you would read the stuff you post.  When it has
some sort of historical or scientific basis, it invariably contradicts
your claims in a fundamental way.

But then, you are a nincompoop.
