Ilana forgets to mention that the "Arabs" of every "Arab" country (except Saudi Arabia) are not actually Arabs by ancestry. They ARE the indigenous peoples of their respective coutries who were culturally and linguistically Arabized. Those that weren't also Islamized are today's Arab Christians, etc. Islamized but not Arabized people are Turks, Persians, etc. Of course, to a small degree, "Arabs" are also admixed with the tiny invading elite populations which ruled them for one period or another (incluing, yes, real Arabs from Arabia). These inputs are minimal cos they were tiny in numbers. So their indigenous genetic heritage is NOT negatived. Lebanese are descendants of Phoenicians, Morrocans of Berbers, Egyptians of Egyptians, Palestinians of Hebrews, Iraqis of Babylonians. Jews are also Hebrews, but they're admixed too. Ashkenazim have admixture from Europeans, Bene Israel from Indians, Sephardim from Spaniards, Parsim from Persians, Teimanim from Yemenis (incl Black Yemenis).
