      Except for Elhaik, empirical studies show that Ashkenazis have a clear connection to the Levant and the land of Israel-Palestine. The most recent is Lazaridis (2016) major study on the connections between the Near East Neolithic era and modern populations. This study serves as the basis for new admixture calculators including Ftdna's Ancient Origins.

        .

        Briefly, Lazaridis recent findings. Research usually shows that Ashkenazis are about half Near Eastern and about half European----if the calculator includes a Levantine region, most of the Near Eastern is from the Levant. Lazaridis found that Ashkenazis most resemble people from the region of Europe with the highest concentration of Levantine lines. Specifically, Ashkenazis most resemble people from Sicily, Malta and Cyprus.
