    Ashkenazi Jews are European afterall

    They've been living in Europe for 1000+ years. I imagine a mostly male crowd from modern day Judea whom migrated to the Byzantium and Rome. They've mixed with locals and quite a lot of them became Hellenistic Jews or even accepted natives who converted to Judaism. Later this hybrid Levantine-Byzantine/Romance group moved to Germany, Poland, Spain and kept their patriarchal identity which originated from the ancient Canaanites.

    The main ethnogenesis of Ashkenazi or Sephardi Jews had happened in Europe and 40-70% of their complete autosomal based genetic make up roads back to Rome and the Byzantium.

    I always imagined Israelis to look like the standard people of the Middle East. Nonetheless, there are some of them that have pale-skin.

    How would the ancient Jews--say those described in the Bible--look like?

    Probably closest to today's Assyrians and Iraqi Jews.

    It seems to be the day for rank speculation. NOBODY KNOWS...is that clear enough?

    On the other hand, when has that ever stopped a lot of our posters?
