EURASIANS WERE THE FIRST, TO SUCCESSFULLY INHABIT NORTH AFRICA, THUS MAKING THE PEOPLE OF EURASIAN DESCENT, THE TRUE INDIGENOUS ABORIGINAL PEOPLES, OF NORTH AFRICA.
"The sequencing of entire human mitochondrial DNAs belonging to haplogroup U reveals that this clade arose shortly after the out of Africa exit and rapidly radiated into numerous regionally distinct subclades. Intriguingly, the Saami of Scandinavia and the Berbers of North Africa were found to share an extremely young branch, aged merely ~9,000 years. This unexpected finding not only confirms that the Franco-Cantabrian refuge area of southwestern Europe was the source of late-glacial expansions of hunter-gatherers that repopulated northern Europe after the Last Glacial Maximum but also reveals a direct maternal link between those European hunter-gatherer populations and the Berbers."
Also it's a fact that Phoenciicans had colonies in North Africa but the Phoencians would have been primarliy J carriers. I2a1 is a WESTERN European clade and is believed to be associatied with the spread of megalithic culture. GARRIG did mention this already a ways back.
"A distinct Western European Paleolithic population that bore Haplogroup I2a1 (M26) must have existed somewhere west of the Apennines in eastern Iberia, southern France, or western Italy, from which it succeeded in the first substantial colonization of the island of Sardinia approximately 9,000 years ago. Despite the fact that the predominantly Sardinian Haplogroup I2a1-M359 is derived from the predominantly Balkan Haplogroup I2a*-P37.2, the derived Haplogroup I2a1 is practically absent east of France and Italy, while it is found at low but significant frequencies outside of Sardinia in the Balearic Islands, Castile, the Basque Country, the Pyrenees, southern and western France, and parts of the Maghreb in North Africa, Great Britain, and Ireland... Haplogroup I2a1 appears to be the only subclade of Haplogroup I found among the Basques, although subclades of Haplogroup R1b comprise the vast majority of that people's Y-chromosome diversity. It is notable that Haplogroup I2a1 appears to be found at somewhat higher frequencies among the general populations of Castile in Spain and Bearn in France than among the population of ethnic Basques. The M26 mutation is found in native males inhabiting every geographic region where megaliths may be found, including such far-flung and culturally disconnected regions like the Canary Islands, the Balearic Isles, Corsica, Ireland, and Sweden."
