Why is it impossible? In island Soqotra there is plenty of J*(xJ1,J2)
(in fact it was the dominant group within J). There's nothing
"impossible" about 3/18 being J*.

This study of Indonesia found 3 samples of J(xJ1,J2) out of 18 total J samples. That's an almost impossible likelihood. Semino's study included 37 J samples from the Indian subcontinent (and of course, none of them were J*).
