You say that the Gymri or House of Omri, by which terms you appear to refer
to the people of Wales (please, no Wh- in Wales!) in general, "are
pure-blooded Israelites". Which naturally leads to the question of "blood":
What evidence can you put forth as regards the genetic composition of these
pure-blooded Israelites? Y-chromosome of the J haplogroup? What kind/s of
mt-DNA? Please remember that you are making quite controversial claims
here; you will need to be able to match this strong claim up with logical,
coherent and scientifically sound arguments -- including a high correlation
with the genetic data of Jewish kohaním and with Samaritans -- as well as
actually showing this evidence (rather than just implying its existence),
*including actual references* to reliable and publically available
scientific sources, in order to be able to be taken seriously.
