    I'm SOOO Jewish, lol.
    Joking aside, notwithstanding the general overlap we are all showing, your specific descent from a family of Leviim is a not insignificant connection to the Jewish people. You see yourself as ethnically Arab but you can be seen (no offense to Arab nationalism intended) as a lost Jewish descendant. How are you that much different from the Latinamerican or Italian descendants of crypto-Jews?

    I'm against the idea of Arab nationalism, rofl. I Identify myself as an Arab solely based on linguistic and cultural grounds. Being an Arab is a pan-ethnic identity, and most Arabs today like the Egyptians and etc are descendants from pre-Islamic peoples with significant amount of Arabian admixture in their genepool which is especially true among the Muslims than the Christians and the Druze. I do like to know on when did my Jewish ancestors converted to Islam and got Arabized though.

    What you say is %100 true. However it never applied to Jews. Jews for the most part were already in place when today's "Arab World" was Arabized. Except for a noisy handful of Baghdad-origin Jewish Communists, and an even smaller number of their Cairo-born fellow travelers, most of whom ended up in Israel in the 1940's and 1950's,no Jews ever identified as Arabs, or "Arab Jews" (despite being Arabic speaking for generations (albeit in the case of the Bavlim, from Baghdad, it was an identifiable Judeo-Arabic dialect). That small group of Communists made some noise about being "Arab Jews" but they were and are seen as fringe ideologues and the only remaining person in that group that still gets read is Dr. Sami Mikhael , and everybody knows his politics. So the pan-Arab designation works for everybody but the Jews. The masses of Jews who lived in the Arab World until recently (my in-laws most definitely included) saw themselves as Jews living as exiles among Arabs exactly how Ashkenazim (again except for Communists) saw themselves as Jews who ended up in Poland or Belarus as exiles. So when Jews assimilated in the Arab World it was because they actually left the Jewish Community and joined the Muslim ummah. So yes, it will be interesting to know if it was a case of voluntary intermarriage in modern times or which circumstances led to your Jewish ancestors "crossing over".

    That makes sense considering that many Samaritans in today's Nablus and etc had converted to Islam either by force and other means which became the ancestors of most of the people in the north of Israel/Palestine. My Girlfriend's mother is from Nablus, and her mother's surname is Shakshiri which is a Samaritan surname.
    (my GF with her mother on the right):


    Btw, do I look like a British Jew in these photos?

    LOL you are more Jew-y than any nominal "goy" I have ever seen. I got asked last week on another forum if I was a Berber lol, based on this historical pic when I wore a giant Jew-fro. Wish you Mabrook with the gf.

    Cool.

    IRL I'm mostly Irish, followed very closely by Scandinavian, with German, some English & 1/16 Sami. It catches the Irish but definitely not all of it. I wonder how much got absorbed into Northwestern European? I also get no Scandinavian whatsoever, so maybe that got completely sucked into that category. I also get no English or East-Asian or Finnish (things a Sami would get). Considering it's in beta mode, I still think this is pretty accurate. More than FTDNA and dna.land anyway. It's cool that it does catch my minute amount of Polish blood, though (23andme did not) via my Pomeranian side (I have Zieliński ancestors in that line).

    Eventually, if it gets more accurate, I'll probably end up getting results more like 27.3% Northwestern European, 26% Irish, 25% Scandinavian, 9.3% English, 3.9% East-European and 6.25% something like East-Asian or Finnish.

    I only know of my Sami ancestry because on GEDmatch calculators with the highest East-Asian samples, I get amounts higher than Hungarians (I get around 2%, higher than the average Hungarian) so I know there must be something Uralic down there. Not to mention me and part of my family are phenotypically Lappoids. The reason I don't get it on other tests must have to do with sample sizes for East-Asians. Also, since Samis are on average 15-20% East-Asian that would mean I have a fully Sami great, great grandparent, so 1/16.

    Here is a Sicilian girl's results from Catania, on the east coast.

    She scores very little Italian. She is just over half Greek, and then she has, unsurprisingly, some Ashkenazi Jewish and a sizable amount of West Asian and Levantine which would put her, autosomally, right into the Sicily/Malta/Greek islands cluster. The rest is North Africa and West Europe.
