Kazan: Homeland of R1b and I ydna

 Sarmatian Warriors     
While surfing the internet I came across an article by A. A. Foster  entitled "Variations of R1b Ydna in Europe: Distribution and Origins" that reveals the homeland of R1b y-dna before they branched off into four main groups. He writes"Complete R1b data from the "YHRD" database, indicated that, after an earlier existence in Asian Khazakstan, all European variants of R1b shared an existence in Russia ( in the region of Kazan, on the Volga river at about 55° North and 50° East), and that, later  they separated and expanded  into two major migrations ( a westward  migration to the Russian-Baltic region, and a south-western migration to the Black Sea area and then further, westwards, to the Alpine-South German region). Eventually, a North Sea-Baltic migration evolved from the  Russian-Baltic expansion; and  an Atlantic migration  evolved from the  Alpine-South German variant."
This region where Kazan is found is also close to Samara mentioned by Immanuel Velikovsky as the place to which the 10 Lost tribes were exiled by the Assyrians in his article "Beyond the Mountains of Darkness". In this article written long before any ydna studies existed Velikovsky writes : "...The sentence (II Kings 17:6) which relates how the King of Assyria took Samaria and carried Israel away into Assyria and “placed them in Halah and in Habor by the river Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes,” caused much deliberation among the historians. The mystery of the Ten Lost Tribes produced also fantastic convictions such as the belief that the Britons are the descendants of the Lost Tribes who, after much wandering, reached Albion...." It would seem that the belief that the ancient Britons were descendants of the Lost Tribes is now not so fantastic after all.
Velikovsky states: "...It is generally agreed that the location of Halah (in Hebrew with two letters kheth, transcribed as h in scholarly texts), or Khalakh, is not given to identification. As to Gozan, the texts of II Kings 17:6 and 18:11 speak of Habor by the river Gozan; also I Chronicles 5:26 speaks of the river Gozan. In Isaiah 37:12 it can be understood as a region or a people of a region. The correct translation of the two passages in the Second Book of Kings is “to the confluence (habor) of the river Gozan...”
Velikovsky goes on to describe how the Assyrian Empire extented to the Volga River in Russia. "...The descriptions of Tiglath-pileser and Sargon of their campaigns in the north lead us to recognize that they passed the mountains of the Caucasus and reached the steppes between the Don and the Volga. When the barrier of the mountains was overcome, they could proceed northward in a scarcely populated area barren of natural defenses, where they would have met less resistance than in the foothills of the mountains. It is unknown how far they may have let their armies of conquest march across the steppes, but probably they did not give the order to return homeward until the army brought its insignia to some really remote point: it could be as far as the place of the confluence of the Kama with the Volga, or even of the Oka, still farther north. The middle flow of the Volga would be the furthermost region of the Assyrian realm.
The roads to the Russian steppes along the Caspian and Black seas were much more readily passable than the narrow path along the river Terek and the Daryal Canyon that cut the Caucasus and wind at the foot of Mount Kazbek, over sixteen thousand feet high. The fact that the “confluence of the river Gozan” is considered a sufficient designation suggests that it must have been a great stream.

A large river in the plain behind the crest of the Caucasus is the Don, and a still larger river—the largest in Europe—is the Volga. If the Assyrians did not make a halt on the plain that stretches immediately behind the Caucasus and moved along the great rivers without crossing them to conquer the great plain that lies open behind the narrow span where the rivers Don and Volga converge—then the most probable place of exile might be reckoned to be at the middle Volga...But Assyrian occupation of Scythia is not a mere conjecture: it is confirmed by archaeological evidence. “The earliest objects from Scythia that we can date,” writes a student of the region’s antiquities, “referred to the VIIth and VIth centuries B.C., are under overwhelming Assyrian influence. . .” 

Velikovsky notes that in this region of Scythia is found the city of Samara which he links to the Israelite name of Samaria. After discussing Samara and its connection to the Khazars at a much later time he then continues his identification of Gozan with Kazan. "..The Hebrew (most probably also Assyrian) name for the Volga, Gozan, seems to have survived in the name Kazan. The city Kazan is located to the north of Samara, a very short distance beyond the place of confluence of the Volga and the Kama, two equally large streams. A tributary by the name Kazanka, or “small Kazan,” flows there into the Volga..."  And here is this area containing the cities of Samara and Kazan is the place from which R1b y-dna branched out into Europe according to Foster. 

The Royal Assyrian Race (the Sarmatians) itself was I y-dna and when they fled the Persians they pushed the Samarian Israelites out of this region and these Assyrian I ydna people became known to history as the Sarmatians. Thus both R1b and I share the region of Kazan and Samara as an ancestral homeland. Earlier British Israel writers spoke about the Assyrians chasing the Israelites into Europe and pushing them further and further west. It would seem that the ydna evidence is proving this to be most likely. It would seem that the Israelite prophets knew that the Israelites had gone into the land of the North and then gone to the West into Europe. 

Further research since 2005 has revealed that R1b is also to be found in the Middle East (Western Asia/ Near East) and is present among Jews and the Egyptian Royal Family from ancient times. This demonstrates that the Kazan region and Kazakhstan are only stopping places on the journey but not the original homeland of R1b. Of course Velikovsky unwittingly reveals this R1b homeland as Samaria in Northern Palestine. The ridiculous datings of the evolutionists are way off mark. It has been demonstrated that in Europe there is little or no R1b in Europe before 1000 BC.  The great movements of the R1b farmers that moved across Europe from Scythia ever westward occurred during the European Iron Age. They were closely followed by the I ydna Sarmatians (Royal Assyrians) who in turn were followed by the Josephite R1a Slavic and Turkic tribes.

Among some of the Slavs there is also found R1b which represents the Israelite Tribe of Issachar (Ishhuza). Also among the Sarmatians were found a group of Syrian Nahorites of G2 ydna who became known as the Ossetians. The Syrian Nahorites were conquered by the Assyrians and it would seem that some of these Nahorite warriors accompanied the Royal Assyrians into Europe. It is also possible that some of the Nahorites had previously fled into Europe after their defeat by the Assyrians around the same time as the Lost Ten Tribes were moved by the Assyrians to the Volga region of Gozan/Kazan. This earlier group of G2 ydna  Nahorites moved further into Europe ahead of the R1b ydna Israelites (Gomerites) and the I ydna Sarmatians. The second group of G2 y-dna Nahorites became known as the Alans and then Ossetians. The Eastern Alans at a later time (8th century) were allied with the Khazars and a group of them became Jewish. The Western Alans who fled westward away from the Huns in the fourth century joined the Vandals in their invasions of Gaul (France), Spain and North Africa.
