Don I must take issue with you - the Arabs only arrived in about 600AD or so, and were gone in about 200 years - the genetics tend to suggest the majority of the ancestsrs of most true Cypriots arrived probably over 8000 years back, which makes the first Greek arrivals (a few Mycenaean traders) in 1400BC or so seem like Johnny come latelys and the Arabs well down the chain.

it is not hard to imagine that Cypriots existed 6000 yrs ago, were the Greeks a thriving Nation like the Egyptians when they were building the pyramids, that is when Cyprus got its name.

Does your linked paper strike you as serious given that the Estonian authors have not dared to put their names to it, or list their collaborators, sources, and references? Oh and what was the most important (highlighted) conclusion of this piece of high scholarship? Oh yeah:

Nothing that has been found by molecular genetics contradicts a common knowledge that Aphrodite was born, from the foam, at the shores of Cyprus.

Whatever your day job is, don't give it up just yet. Unless of course you're a professional troll, in which case, keep on trolling!

That's the (dated) Estonian article which you (fully) misunderstand. It demonstrates how similar people are to their nearest neighbors which is a well established finding. It therefore confirms Cypriots as of being from THIS neighborhood by being similar to people from the Levant including those from CRETE. We KNOW that we (those in mainland Greece and its islands) have been here for tens of thousands of years. This is not in dispute. What you fail to understand is that our similarities as Greeks - migrational, historical and cultural - are as similar as can be expected and we share diminishing/increasing similarities with other historical neighbors depending on our geographical distances. What this article does NOT do is provide evidence for your deluded deductions about non-relatedness to Mycenaeans! As far as I know, no one has done -specifically - migrational DNA charts of the people from the Peloponnese with those of Cyprus - but one trip to Laconia should open your eyes! However, our exchanges with the mainland and its islands are NOT limited to 'relations' with Myceneans - or any one specific area of Greece - since we have been having 'relations' for some few thousand years since and hence!

Stop acting like a racist idiot. A casual observation of the physical make-up of Cypriot people shows that they are , as should be expected , a mixture of all the neighbouring peoples.
