  1. Another point I disagree with, it is well established that Turks did not enter the Near East until the battle of manzikert (1050 AD). How does the author reconcile this? He claims that Askhanazazi Jews (AJs) closer to Turks, Kurds, and Iranians, but based on his findings AJs are closer to his Khazari population proxy … That includes Georgians and Armenians. Most likely author is cherry picking. Most likely based on his data AJs are more closely related to Armenians then they moved north as incidentally the Armenian feudal governing structure collapsed as a result of Arab and Turkish expansion.
