That would not be unusual. Mizrachi Jews often show significant admixture with 'host' countries. That is why a homogenous Mizrachi profile cannot be identified. In fact, the concept of 'Mizrachi Jew' is relatively recent. In the past Jews were simply identified by host country.

Turkish and Greek lines spread to the Caucasus. There is even a view that TAT Jews were originally from Persia. To complicate matters, there were two groups of Jews in the Caucasus---Jews who had resided there for a long time and Ashkenazis who were forced to migrate by the Russians.

Your pattern is not uncommon. For example, there was Neolithic migration from Turkey to points north and west. A Ydna upgrade might clarify the issue. But note that not that many Mizrachi have been tested. I would suggest an autosomal test such as Ftdna's FF test. Then upload to Gedmatch Eurogenes option. It would compare your results to various Mizrachi groups`

Your MyOrigins 2.0 estimates contain the elements that other Mountain Jews from Dagestan and Azerbaijan in Family Tree DNA also have in their estimates. Everything looks normal.

The ancient Israelites, and even more so the Mizrahi branches, did have partial ancestry from the northern Middle East including what are now eastern Turkey, Iraq (including Assyria), and Iran.

On the other hand, it is true that Mountain Jews don't have any DNA from Ashkenazi Jews or Sephardi Jews so that is why you score 0% in the "Jewish Diaspora" category.
