Re: The relationship between Pashtuns and Jews #general

My brother is G2b YDNA haplogroup. Several years ago, a researcher at FTDNA found there were only one or two mutations between Jewish G2b and those of Pashtun ancestry. It seems that 2,000 years ago one group left the fertile crescent and moved westwards and became Jewish Askenazi, and another moved westwards into Afghanistan/Pakistan and became Pashtuns. Both groups are sub clades of G2b.
