    Ashkenazi Jews are ethnically originated from the Levant, which is indeed in the middle east.

    The answer to this is both yes and no. Ashkenazi Jews can trace their roots back to Israel, like all of us can trace our roots back to a single ancestor in Africa, but most of their genetics comes from the area we call Italy today.

    Yes. A study of haplotypes of the Y-chromosome, published in 2000, addressed the paternal origins of Ashkenazi Jews. Hammer et al. found that the Y-chromosome of Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews contained mutations that are also common among other Middle Eastern peoples, but uncommon in the autochthonous European population. This suggested that the male ancestors of the Ashkenazi Jews could be traced mostly to the Middle East. The proportion of male genetic admixture in Ashkenazi Jews amounts to less than 0.5% per generation over an estimated 80 generations, with "relatively minor contribution of European Y chromosomes to the Ashkenazim," and a total admixture estimate "very similar to Motulsky's average estimate of 12.5%." This supported the finding that "Diaspora Jews from Europe, Northwest Africa, and the Near East resemble each other more closely than they resemble their non-Jewish neighbors."

    There's no such thing as "genetically Middle Eastern". Humans move about, and their genes are not linked to a geographical area. Some genetics merely are more common in one area than elsewhere
