but WHO ARE "GREEKS" ?
HLA GENES REPORT:
Greeks are found to have a substantial relatedness to sub-Saharan (Ethiopian) people, which separate them from other Mediterranean groups. Both Greeks and Ethiopians share quasi-specific DRB1 alleles, such as *0305, *0307, *0411, *0413, *0416, *0417, *0420, *1110, *1112, *1304 and *1310. Genetic distances are closer between Greeks and Ethiopian/sub-Saharan groups than to any other Mediterranean group and finally Greeks cluster with Ethiopians/sub-Saharans in both neighbour joining dendrograms and correspondence analyses.
TRUE OR FALSE?
following Greek legend, that Inachus, the founder of Argos (1856 BC), and Cecrops, the founder of Athens (1556 BC), were Egyptians. Other histories claim that Inachus was a Phoenician. Cadmus, the founder of Thebes (1493 BC), was a Phoenician. These men may be historical or legendary; we cannot know. We do know that in the 15th century BC, the Egyptian empire encompassed a great area, which included Palestine (Phoenicia) and the Aegean Sea (Crete). Suffice it to say that Egypt and Phoenicia had the greatest influence on early Minoan (Crete), Mycenaean (Argos), Spartan, Athenian and Theban civilization. The Pelasgi, or Pelasgians, were the primitive inhabitants of Greece, according to Herodotus. Now Pelasgus I was an early king (1684 BC), and it was from this ruler that the Pelasgians took their name. Pelasgus was a grandson or great-grandson of Inachus, the Egyptian or Phoenician that founded Argos. Herodotus says of the Phoenicians that they “lived of old, so they say, about the Red Sea (Erythraean Sea), but they then came out of there and settled in that part of Syria that is next the Sea (Mediterranean Sea). That piece of Syria, and all as far as Egypt, is called Palestine” (The History, 7.89). Scholars believe that Herodotus’ Erythraean Sea is our Indian Ocean (The History, 1.1), but whether it is the Indian Ocean or the Red Sea, its proximity to Egypt in either case is well known.
