That's extremely unrealistic. First of all, they found just 2 samples of R1b1b2 and 3 samples of J*. So you're saying the insignificant island of Soqotra, a place that could fit into a corner of Sicily and whose current population is the size of a large town, could have had a greater population impact on Indonesia than the Europeans who controlled the entire place for centuries?
These J* lineages appeared in Vietnam and Bali. Where are the Soqotran J*'s from India, Yemen, Arabia, Oman, Iran, Tanzania?

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*).
