Whither Jewish Genetics

Labels do not represent reality.

Gee…now that Amren has covered this, what about this (emphasis added):

Recent genomic studies that have identified a component of distinctive ancestry for Jewish individuals have largely focused on Ashkenazi Jews sampled in the United States in relation to the broader European-American population [7, 8, 9, 10], finding most recently that individuals with even partial Ashkenazi ancestry can be detected on the basis of principal components analysis [10]. Our study furthers the results of these studies by showing that a distinctive component of genomic ancestry extends to Jewish populations more broadly.

A simple explanation for the clustering of the Jewish populations is that this pattern is the consequence of shared ancestry with an ancestral Middle Eastern group…Bayesian clustering with Structure assigns the Jewish populations and the Palestinians to the same cluster (Figure 2), and by the relatively close placement of the Palestinians and the Jewish populations in MDS plots of individual distances (Figure 5). This genetic similarity, which is supported by several previous studies [12, 65, 66], is compatible with a similar Middle Eastern origin of the Jewish populations and the Palestinians.

I guess not.  More likely is perhaps an analysis of the hora-dancing genes of Romanians.  As I’ve said before, it is the inconsistency I find objectionable. If you want to talk about Iberian ancestry, all well and good, but then you should talk about Jewish ancestry as well.  If you focus on the former while always studiously ignoring the latter then people will justifiably question why.

Also, consider this – some ancestry testing companies, including 23andMe, label Ashkenazi Jewish genetics as “European;” thus, to them, 100% Ashkenazi Jewish = 100% European.  In other words, a Middle Eastern ethnic group that has some European admixture, a group with genetic similarity to Palestinians, is considered “European” (presumably because the most recent historical location of this ethny was scattered among the peoples of Europe, just as are the Roma).

On the other hand, authentic indigenous European ethnies that are not adequately represented by parental population samples are described as a mix of mostly European with some “admixture,” despite the fact that it would make more ethnic-historical sense to label the genepools of those ethnies as “100% European” than it would to label the Palestinian-like Ashkenazi genepool as “100% European.”

Thus, a company has adequate Ashkenazi parental population coverage (Jews are always analyzing their own genetics, so there’s plenty of data for Jewish genetic normalization) and decides, arbitrarily, to label this ethny as European, so – presto! – they are “European,” while other populations that are indigenous to Europe, and whose genepools should therefore be described as European, are instead represented as composites of whatever populations that happen to be in the company’s parental sample base.

It is a complete inversion of reality, absolute madness.

This will, of course, do nothing but make the HBD Alt Wrong support Trump all the more.

Hey, Strom, do you still think that “Putin is playing a deep game?”

Wrong, wrong, they’re always wrong.

Sallis: Right, right, he’s always right.

But, ah, it really doesn’t matter, does it?

The thing that annoys me about all these fellows is that they can never admit being wrong.  That hints at some flaw of character.  Perhaps they believe that admitting error shows weakness, but I believe the opposite – a refusal to admit obvious error is what demonstrates weakness.

Speaking of the syndrome of grossly mistaken hero worship, here’s cuck nagger Steve King.

And speaking of always being wrong, the “movement” – having learned nothing from Nixon, Reagan, Ron Paul, Putin, and Trump – is now championing Tulsi – The Yeastbucket on Pacific Island Coconut Tree Syndrome.

Der Movement’s affirmative action program is real and it is destructive – thanks a lot readers for enabling it.
