I 'get' that my previous thread is long...er, well, REALLY REALLY long.
But, if you manage to finish reading it completely, and, actually READ the cited peer-reviewed whitepaper by Dr. Eran Elhaik (THE Israeli Geneticist cited in my previous reply), the conclusion of his study CONFIRMS the Khazari Origin Hypothesis of 'modern Jews' (NOT deny it), as does this current thread's original author cited linked blog-post's assertions:
These Europeans had long ago emerged from Khazaria (southern Russia), where their king – for the purpose of greater, unified control – converted them to the Babylonian schools of Judaism in the 8th century. Thus, not only their DNA, but their perspectives are a different reality from the Judean teachings in Jesus’ world.
Here's THE study (in .PDF) by Dr. Eran Elhaik, cited in my previous thread:
The Missing Link of Jewish European Ancestry: Contrasting the Rhineland and the Khazarian Hypotheses

From that PDF, press CTRL+F (or Mac equivalent: Command+F), then type "Khazar" in the 'Find' box. Read for yourself.
I would copy+paste more relevant text from that whitepaper, but the formatting gets all screwy. But, apropos of your rebuttal that you think what I posted "REFUTES the Op not supports it," if you want the Cliff's Notes version, just read the last paragraph of Dr. Eran Elhaik's research findings, at Page 23 of 37 of http://gbe.oxfordjournals.org/content/early/2012/12/14/gbe.e...
We compared two genetic models for European Jewish ancestry depicting a mixed Khazarian-European-Middle Eastern and sole Middle Eastern origins. Contemporary populations were used as surrogate to the ancient Khazars and Judeans, and their relatedness to European Jews was compared over a comprehensive set of genetic analyses. Our findings support the Khazarian Hypothesis depicting a large Caucasus ancestry along with Southern European, Middle Eastern, and Eastern European ancestries, in agreement with recent studies and oral and written traditions. We conclude that the genome of European Jews is a tapestry of ancient populations including Judaized Khazars, Greco-Romans Jews, Mesopotamian Jews, and Judeans and that their population structure was formed in the Caucasus and the banks of the Volga with roots stretching to Canaan and the banks of the Jordan.
Gotta read COMPLETELY: yeah, yeah, my schit's verbose, so?
LOL. Na, I kid, 'cause I love.
That said, extra brownie pts. for those of y'all w/patience who do read it all before replying/rebutting with more relevance .D
Yes, the formerly competing Khazari origins hypothesis has now been proven: thus, now an operative working, proven theory (though it will forever be disputed among AIPAC circles).
But, my CORE pt. of my previous lengthy thread is that regardless of where, we're all simply human brothers and sisters who share about 99% same biology. So why fight? That, was the point. But to the specifics of where 'modern Jews' genetically hailed from? There's no doubt: they're Khazaris. But that's just a genetic fact. Who cares? It only matters politically in that area. Doesn't change who they are: TWO semites (both Jews and Palestinians) killing each other, literally over nothing, as more than any of us: they truly share the same blood.
