Asia Middle-East Y-Haplogroup F-J

Around 50,000 years ago, a group of wanderers crossed the Bab El Mandeb Strait but instead of taking the coastal route to India, they headed north up the Arabian Peninsular.
There are two geographic features that would have influenced the migrants moving towards Asia. Above Iraq are the Caucasus mountains and beyond those begins a north-south range of mountains, the Urals.
At this geographic juncture, the Paternal Line splits into many over a period of 10-20,000 years. So that the trans-Arabia Paternal route to populating Asia can seem a bit like an impression of a fountain .
Whereas F is the source of many new Y-Haplogroups,  J Haplogroup grew to dominate the Middle-East, currently 55% on the Arabian Peninsular, and neighbouring regions North Africa to the east and Asia Minor to the west.
•The nomadic Bedouins are indigenous Arabs, and still travel in number in the Dhofar mountain range of Central Oman
•People in the Levant and Mesopotamian regions admixed with Arabs in the 7th century
•Yemenis have strong historical, cultural and genetic ties with Austronesia and Hindustan (the Todas people). Before the continents shifted in antiquity, Veddoid peoples were the majority in India and there is a distinct ancient Veddoid strain in the Hadramaut of the Gulf. Later, bonded labourers were brought from Hindustan, primarily from the coastal Baluchis region, Ceylon, and the Dravidian region.
