Then you are talking about movements of Central Asian
peoples in a genealogical time-frame. Khan moved into
the northern Levant (Persia, Anatolia, Syria) in the
13th century. I would be surprised if your "Middle
Eastern" ancestry component dated to this late
time-period (ie, Middle Eastern ancestry within the
last 700 years). Additionally, I don't know of any
DNA studies that have attempted to trace the genetic
impact, should there have been any, of Khan's
subjugation of this area.
