Well, you're only about five years behind the times -- I read about
this study in the New York Times the month it came out.  And unlike
you, I understand what it implies and what it doesn't.  And what
it does not imply, what would cause any of the researchers involved
to shriek and fall off their perches, is your silly claim that:

Nopepers.  Neither study mentions any similarities between
the populations in Spain and Ireland and the Semitic population.
Your sequiteur is so non- that it's not only not right, it isn't
even wrong.  It's just meaningless.


Silly little man.
