Source: In Favor of Politicizing Jewish Identity It is impossible to rationally explain why the Igbos of Nigeria are not recognized as Jews when Ethiopian Beta Israel are. (Haaretz) 2011 A.D. From the source "It is impossible to rationally explain why the Igbos of Nigeria are not recognized as Jews when Ethiopian Beta Israel are. Today, Israeli politics - at least in terms of its relationship with the Palestinians - is focused on having them recognize Israel's Jewish character. There are also calls for Israel's non-Jewish citizens to take an oath of loyalty to the Jewish state. Foreign workers are…

Igbo Pyramids Connected With Ancient Egypt

Igbo Pyramids Connected With Ancient Egypt

Source: The Forgotten Igbo Pyramids (Pulse.ng) 2017 A.D The ancient Igbo pyramids are located in Udi, Enugu, Nigeria but have long been forgotten and are probably in ruins. The wonder of the Igbo pyramids started in 1935, when British anthropologist and colonial administrator, G. I. Jones, took pictures of the Nsude pyramids (what is now known as the Igbo pyramids). Jones in 1935 was building up an extraordinary photographic record of Southeastern Nigerian culture when he stumbled upon the clay formed wonders. Armed with his Roloflex camera Jones took shots of the 10 circular stepped pyramids. The Nsude pyramids are…

A Substantial Prehistoric European Ancestry Amongst Ashkenazi Maternal Lineages

A Substantial Prehistoric European Ancestry Amongst Ashkenazi Maternal Lineages

Source: Nature Abstract The origins of Ashkenazi Jews remain highly controversial. Like Judaism, mitochondrial DNA is passed along the maternal line. Its variation in the Ashkenazim is highly distinctive, with four major and numerous minor founders. However, due to their rarity in the general population, these founders have been difficult to trace to a source. Here we show that all four major founders, ~40% of Ashkenazi mtDNA variation, have ancestry in prehistoric Europe, rather than the Near East or Caucasus. Furthermore, most of the remaining minor founders share a similar deep European ancestry. Thus the great majority of Ashkenazi maternal…

Genetic Roots of the Ashkenazi Jews

Genetic Roots of the Ashkenazi Jews

Source: The Scientist Most Ashkenazi Jews, traditionally believed to have descended from the ancient tribes of Israel, may in fact be maternally descended from prehistoric Europeans. 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…

Surprise: Ashkenazi Jews Are Genetically European

Surprise: Ashkenazi Jews Are Genetically European

Source: Live Science The origin of the Ashkenazi Jews, who come most recently from Europe, has largely been shrouded in mystery. But a new study suggests that at least their maternal lineage may derive largely from Europe. Though the finding may seem intuitive, it contradicts the notion that European Jews mostly descend from people who left Israel and the Middle East around 2,000 years ago. Instead, a substantial proportion of the population originates from local Europeans who converted to Judaism, said study co-author Martin Richards, an archaeogeneticist at the University of Huddersfield in England. Tangled legacy Little is known about…
