    Please don't supply your own take of a study without any reference to the study itself. It's neither helpful nor honest. However if you look at #146 you will see some references to genetic studies/articles which do give some references and seem to contradict your appraisal: ""...[T]he Levites, another paternally inherited Jewish caste, display evidence for multiple recent origins, with Ashkenazi Levites having a high frequency of a distinctive, NON-Near Eastern haplogroup... Because the modal haplotype of haplogroup R1a1 found in the Ashkenazi Levites is found at reasonably high frequency throughout the eastern European region, it is not possible to use genetic information to pinpoint the exact origin of any putative founder from the currently available data sets. ... One attractive source would be the Khazarian Kingdom" Multiple Origins of Ashkenazi Levites: Y Chromosome Evidence for Both Near Eastern and European Ancestries. http://www.ucl.ac.uk/tcga/tcgapdf/Behar-AJHG-03.pdf
