    J2a1b* in Sicilians - where is it from?

    Is it Phoenician, Jewish, or Moorish?

    Or is it from someone else entirely...

    I understand that the current consensus is that most J2 found throughout the Mediterranean Basin spread from Anatolia and the Levant during the Bronze Age (or was it the Neolithic?), i.e. before all those groups. I say most, but some of it could have come from any of the three groups, or the Greeks, or the Turks. The Phoenicians seemed to be predominantly J2, whereas the Jews and the Moors especially have a lot of J1 in their population.

    Edit: There's a post in RHAS' sticky about the Phoenician influence.
