Your statement is incorrect. First of all, the Romans never wiped out the Jewish population in 70. They only targeted the minority of Jews that rose up against them. Many of those Jews in the uprisings were Sabateans and are usually considered proto-christians or jewish-christians. Secondly; the mulsim population of this area is of mixed origin; Arab immigrants, Frankish crusaders and converted original inhabitants make up their DNA.
