Wow. I'm not really sure if this has any realistic, practical ramifications - but if it does - is this the answer...? One can dream.

That is fascinating. Distant kin.

Plus, Kurds from Babylon? I have for years assumed, based on much of what is known, that the ancestors of the first Jews were originally from somewhere in Persia. This fits in with the Kurds from Babylon bit - the Kurdish language can be described as mountain Persian. But that also indicates how little one's language says about one's ancestry; groups switch languages throughout history.

It does make one wonder.


Very true. There are so many variables.
