Recently I have changed my understanding of the y-dna table. Those who have read my ideas before know that I believed that the Israelite ydna was R1b and the Edomite R1a. I now believe that R1b represents the Israelite sons of Leah (Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Isaachar and Zebulon) and R1a the Josephite Tribes of Ephraim and Manesseh. The base of my understanding that R1b-L21 is Davidic ydna remains the same. Also that the Levite (and thus Cohen) ydna is R1b-Ht35 (L23+, L21-) has not changed. However R1b -P312 is the ydna marker for clans of the tribes of Reuben, Simeon, Isaachar and Judah. R1b-U106/S21 is the marker for a clan of the tribe of Zebulon.

The Tribes of Asher and Gad of O Haplogroup
The Tribe of Benjamin of Q Haplogroup
If one believes in the evolutionary theory and its distortions of dna evidence then I suggest you stop reading immediately. This interpretation will only be accepted by those who believe that mankind is only about 6,000 years old and that Noah is the ydna Adam. Thus much that has been written on dna and its connection with actual history is distorted and needs to be realigned with the germ line rate of mutations rather than the fabricated ones based on evolutionary suppositions.
The Hebrew Nahorites (Syrians)
The Hebrew Haranites (Moab and Ammon)
We know from Velikovsky, the Jewish traditions and the Bible that the time of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob was a time of great celestial happenings that may have seriously affected dna. I have come to the conclusion that the so-called F (M89) haplogroup is the ydna from the sons of Heber (the original Hebrews). G (M201) is the sons of Nahor and H (M69, M370) are the sons of Haran. IJK represents the descendants of Abraham. IJ represents the sons of Ishmael- J (P209) the older Middle Eastern branch (Arab and Samaritan) and I (M170) the Royal Assyrian (Samartian/ Viking) branch that went into Europe following the Lost Tribes.
The Ishmaelites of J Haplogroup
The Assyrian-Samartian Ishmaelites
Haplogroups M ( sons of Sheba), S (sons of Dedan) and R2 (sons of Zimran) represents the descendants of Abraham's wife Keturah. Abraham's son Isaac and the sons of Keturah were born with (K-M9) which Ishmael 's descendants did not possess. LT (M298, P326) is found among the sons of Esau (Edom). M ydna is also found among the Hazaras (2%) representing a small number of males leaving Australia with the other Israelite tribes for Afganistan/Pakistan area in the 16th century.
Edomites (Romans and Greeks) of T Haplogroup
The Edomites of the East (L Haplogroup)
It would seem that God has marked the 12 sons of Israel with a y-dna identity that can be revealed in the latter days. R1b are the sons of Leah (Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Isaachar and Zebulon, NO the sons of Bilhah and Zilpah (Naphtali, Dan, Asher and Gad), R1a the sons of Joseph (Ephraim and Manesseh) and Q the sons of Benjamin.
R1a lands of the Tribes of Ephraim and Manesseh
Both Judah (R1b) and Joseph (R1a) are said to have had red hair as did Judah's descendant King David. Ephraim was blonde like his mother Rachel and Manesseh was red like his father Joseph. Red hair among the R1a Royal Khazars is due to their Khazar ancestry. Yair Davidi's book on the Khazars tells of ancient claims of Manesseh ancestry of the Khazars. The Khazars of R1a belong to the R1a-Z93 haplogroup which is of the Tribe of Eastern Manesseh. Western Manesseh is R1a -L664. The tribe of Ephraim is R1a-Z283. The royal family of the Khazars, the Medieval Kings of Georgia, the MacDonald Lords of the Isle (descended from Somerled) however are from the Tribe of Ephraim (R1a-L176.1). It is interesting that the Medieval chroniclers claimed that the Georgian Prince David Soslan was a Prince of Ephraim.
R1*-173 is the Manessehites (Josephites) who left Egypt with Pharoah Mentuhotep IV and settled the Southern regions and the Americas
The early migration of the Egypto-Israelites to South-East Asia and Australia is confirmed by the remnants of Josephite y-dna (R1*-173) among native peoples there as well as in Northern Peru where King Mentuhotep IV of Egypt is believed to have finally settled after fleeing Egypt.
This new understanding of the y-dna tree will effect my previous writings about the Nephtalites and the House of Zerah Judah. I formerly saw R1b-U152 as Zerah -Judah which I now identify with Reuben. Zerah -Judah is R1b-M73 and is found among the Hazaras (ha Zerahs) and other groups in the far East. This however is only an identification of the physical ydna of the Israelites. The Jewish people and other Israelite communities are made up of people of diverse ydna and are no less Jewish or Israelite in their identity than those actually descended on the direct male line from the Patriarchs of Israel.
The Tribe of Zebulon (R1b-U106/S21)
My own understandings of Ephraim have been radically changed which may be difficult to get my head around. Today the Ephraimite nations (which are the Birthright nations) are the Russians and Poles and other closely related Slavic nations (not Britain as I formerly believed). Slavic hostility towards Jews is well-known which is the biblical "envy of Ephraim" towards Judah (the Jews and the British, Scots and Irish). The British Isles Judaites are descendants of that part of Judah that was carried away with the Northern Israelites. The Assyrians divided these sons of Judah into two groups -one group were sent to the Mountains of Media in the South and the others into the North with the Tribes of Isaachar and Zebulon.
Many apparitions of Our Lady speak of Russia as the nation that would bring the most glory to God. Was she alluding to the Birthright blessing? The British Isles could well be called the Davidic Isles and is truly as Shakespeare wrote: "...This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle, this earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, this other Eden...".
The Tribe of Reuben (R1b-U152/S28)
Many years ago, before the advent of dna studies, I had come to believe from my study of history, archaeology, legends, myths etc that the bulk of the Europeans were physically descended from the Israelites. With this new understanding I have returned to the opinion that the bulk of the European peoples are physically Israelites on their ydna lineages.
The Kuki-Chin-Mizo Jews are in fact not descendants of the Tribe of Manesseh on their male line but many of them are descendants of the Lost Tribe of Asher (O-M268) and others of Gad. However it is quite possible that one of their ancestors was called Manasseh but was from the Tribe of Asher. Their ancestors may have been part of the military forces of the last King of Israel, Osee (Hoshea), who led Eastern Manesseh with the tribes of Asher and Gad into the East. Osee is an ancestor of the Japanese Samurai according to others. It would seem that many Koreans and Japanese are also descendants of the Tribe of Asher. It would seem that the Nias of Indonesia and the aboriginal Taiwanese belong mainly to the Tribe of Gad. The people of Thailand are mainly of the Tribe of Asher with also a strong input from the Tribe of Gad.
While part of the Tribe of Gad (Kadai) went to Australia with the tribe of Reuben and half Manasseh another group of the Tribe of Gad called the Hani or Chani (Chin) went with the Tribe of Asher and the Manassehite King Osee (Hoshea/ Huaxia/ Yellow Emperor) of Samaria (Israel) into western China around 600 BC. The original Han Chinese are mostly of this O-M122 clan of Gad. King Osee was known as Susanoo to the Japanese. He married Princess Kushi the daughter of the Prince of Asher (Nasi Asher/ Ashi-nadzuchi) and his wife Amahterasu (Amah-Te) the daughter of the Queen Mother of the West, Hephzibah of Judah (Hsi-wang-mu/ Izanami), and her husband King Hezekiah of Judah (Izanagi). Queen Kushi's brother Prince Ame of Asher (Ashi/ Oshi) was the ancestor of Jimmu the first Japanese Emperor (c.400 BC).
It is interesting that Q is found among the Afghans (Pashtuns) who have claimed Benjaminite ancestry since at least the Middle Ages. This branch they claimed (or at least the Afghani Royal Family) belonged to the Benjaminite House of King Saul. The wolf was a symbol of the Normans (and many British Israelites claimed their descent from Benjamin) and one group of Q is found in Norway. This same group of Q is found among many Jewish men as well. This branch of Q (L275 and M378) represent Benjamin who remained among Judah until the end of the Second Temple.
The early Benjamin found in East Asia and the Americas came from a dispersion after the destruction of the First Temple. The American Indian Q is closely related to that found in the Yemenite Jews. It would seem that a branch of Benjamin headed in to South East Asia even as far as Bali and may have been part of the Sundaland homeland (Mu) before its sinking. One branch of these Benjaminites then crossed the Pacific Ocean to South America.
Benjaminite y-dna (Q).
It would seem that the Benjaminites (connected with Mordechai and Esther) of the Persian Empire divided into two groups- one returned to the Holy Land with Ezra and Nehemiah (Q-L275) and the other moved to the north Eastern Siberia and across into North America (Q-MEH2). From this new Benjaminite Kingdom a branch moved South from Siberia into the Chinese Empire (Q-M120), another branch back into the Middle East (Q-M25). A third branch moved from the Siberian Kingdom to South East Asia (Q-M346).
Some years ago I realised that most of what had been written about the Tribe of Dan, Danaan etc in Europe had nothing to do with Dan but referred to the Daughters of Dinah (Diana/ Dona/ Dana) the feminine Tribe of Israelite women. The real Tribe of Dan (N* or N-LLY22g*) went into the East with some of the Tribe of Naphtali (N1 or NLLY22g). However it is likely that P* is also from the Tribe of Dan but misplaced in the ydna tree.
Familypedia states: "...Besides the typically European/South Asian Haplogroup R and South-Central Siberian/Native American Haplogroup Q, other patrilines derived from Haplogroup P-M45 are labeled for sake of convenience as Haplogroup P* and are reported to have been found at low to moderate frequency among modern populations of Central Asia, Siberia, East Asia, and the Russian Far East. There is a conspicuous presence of Haplogroup P* on the Isle of Hvar in theAdriatic Sea off the Dalmatian coast of Croatia, which may be due to historical immigration of Avars from Central Asia. There have also been reports of Haplogroup P* from samples of Ashkenazi Jews, Native Americans, and some populations of South Asia and Oceania, but it is not entirely clear whether these were truly Haplogroup P* or rather instances of a rare haplogroup derived from Haplogroup P, such as Haplogroup R2 or Haplogroup Q." This is in fact part of the ydna of Dan.
