Running away from your problems by calling yourself "Gertrude" and projecting your possible Middle-Eastern ancestry onto others won't solve anything my dear.
Hey Gertrude-I am 6,1 260 lbs with reddish brown hair and green eyes.Does that sound middle eastern to you? Getrude your links are missinterpited.First of all HLA genes is not a sign of race.DNAmt.All Europeans have neolithic genes from the spread of neolithic farmers.You have an agenda ITS OBVIOUS.
: : and the reason why noone ever claims the ancient greek people has survived!
: Most educated non-Greeks that I know take it for granted that the Greeks are still "Greek." And we're talking about people who graduated from or attend places like Stanford, UCLA, and UC Berkeley.
: Most of my professors, when mentioning Greeks, have had only positive things to say (and most don't know that I'm Greek, so it can't be out of politeness).
: : oh and for a study just basically read any study by a NON-GREEK made on modern europeans as a whole and look at exactly where the greeks are placed on the european 'family tree'. not very far from arabs eh? not eastern my foot!
: Every fact or study I alluded to in my writings was lifted from non-Greek sources. With the exception of Aris Poulianos (whose works I havn't even read yet), I know of no Greeks working in our field of discussion.
: And why do you keep referring to this Arab/Middle-Eastern connection? Greeks don't really cluster closely with anyone, except maybe Albanians.
: : i'm resting with this once again as it's getting very boring arguing with people with a cause:
: I think it's you who has a cause. The more you write, the more indication I'm getting of where you're coming from. It's pretty much what I said before: you're ashamed of your own people; you don't like the fact that many Cypriots look "Middle-Eastern;" and you're trying to drag the Greeks down to make yourself feel better.
: Running away from your problems by calling yourself "Gertrude" and projecting your possible Middle-Eastern ancestry onto others won't solve anything my dear.
