The DNA connection here concerns an old fringe belief that British
people descend from the "lost tribes" of Israel, and the fact the
modern DNA testing has completely demolished the idea--thus the effort
of this Brit-Am person, or whoever the anonymous person is, to
"refute" the DNA evidence.
In general terms, many speculative ideas about how various peoples
moved from the Middle East and Africa into Europe are typical of
genealogy DNA discussions--it's best to know that this one has a
colorful "history." I don't think politics has been mentioned.
It makes perfect sense to test this theory, or any other, with DNA
sequencing. That said, any attempt to compress the genetic history of
man into a scripture-based (creationist?) timeframe of a few thousand
years is absurd on its face, regardless of specific DNA testing
