    Post Greek dna i need help!!!

    hello there i recently took a dna test im half greek and half Lebanese these are my following results:
    Greek and South Italian
    64.7%
    Iberian
    5.7%
    Italian
    1.8%
    Ashkenazi Jewish
    2.8%
    Middle East
    23.7%
    west asia: 1.3%

    so i decided to check with gedmatch with oracle one and it says that im Sephardic jewish and i need help as i dont know what im doing and how can i be jewish when i score such a low score on my test
    1-Can someone check my kit and give me a resume of my Ethnicity profile(i've noticed a few people here that are quite knowledgeable and can interpret the results very well).

    2- Can u guys tell me which tool to use to get better understanding about my dna profile.

    Thanks in advance!! My DNA kit code is :WE7666065

    Using 1 population approximation:
    1 Sephardic_Jewish @ 7.103402
    2 Ashkenazi @ 7.648400
    3 East_Sicilian @ 8.357699
    4 South_Italian @ 8.845421
    5 Italian_Jewish @ 9.082468
    6 Central_Greek @ 10.103077
    7 Algerian_Jewish @ 10.573827
    8 Tunisian_Jewish @ 10.637551
    9 Italian_Abruzzo @ 10.820577
    10 West_Sicilian @ 10.943333
    11 Libyan_Jewish @ 11.397621
    12 Greek_Thessaly @ 15.681661
    13 Cyprian @ 16.475458
    14 Tuscan @ 17.731829
    15 Lebanese_Muslim @ 17.861343
    16 Syrian @ 18.371393
    17 Palestinian @ 20.221304
    18 Jordanian @ 20.225569
    19 Samaritan @ 21.624985
    20 Turkish @ 21.843817

    Its REALLY not hard to understand. Thats is not your ethnicity, that is your one population approximation. Greek + Lebanese = Sephardic Jewish.

    You are about equally distant from both ancestries.

    of
    southern european+ levantine heritge

    As a Maltese born person, I can tell you that those dna companies, and those dna company ancestry programs, or homemade programs as at GEDmatch, are absolutely hopeless when they come to people of the three Mediterranean peninsulas and the islands. With Northern, Central and West Europeans they are much better, probably because of heavy biased choosing of SNP results. Northern Italians and Spanish folk they are passable.

    I get Ashkenazi Jews, Jews from everywhere in West Eurasia, even those in Africa. If it was true I should have Jews galore in my relatives list, I have zilch, I have no Middle Easterners, no West Asians, no North Africans... none of those folks share one recognizable segment of dna with me.

    Just laugh it off.
