Dear Jonathan:

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.

Kol tub,
