See Pashtun here for Y DNA
Y-DNA haplogroups by ethnic groups - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Wiki has cited this study, see figure 1
Y-chromosomal evidence for a limited Greek contribution to the Pathan population of Pakistan

Note however that this is merely a study with a certain Pashtun sample. We obviously cannot with certainty generalize these values to Pashtuns as a population but we can nevertheless atleast assume the population values are probably similar.
Also we can argue Mitochondrial DNA (passed on from mother) is irrelevant when it comes to Pashtuns since Pashtuns are a patriarchal people and you are only Pashtun if your patriarchal lineage is (i.e. mothers ethnicity is irrelevant). This study seems to refute the Israelite theory since the J haplogroup (Semitic marker) was only found in 6.3% of the Pashtun sample.

Interesting values on Kurds tough, that particular study seems to indicate large Semitic influence (40% J haplogroup and most common one) on Iraqi Kurds.

This is 'Iraqi' Kurd DNA:

J2 - 28.4%
R1b - 16.8%
I - 16.8%
R1a - 11.6%
J1 - 11.6%
E1b1b - 7.4%
G - 4.2%
T - 3.2

It differs from Kurds in Turkey, they have more I haplogroup.

Yes, we have nearly 29% J2 (native Mesopotamian DNA) becuase that's where we live Europeans came and assimilated the natives, we were once Assyrians now we are Kurdish.

P.S: Thanks for the source.

Scythian... I'm sorry for being a little sarcastic, but I couldn't resist. Do you really think that Wikipedia is the best place to look for genetic information? I spent 10 years as a scientist in medical field (cancer epidemiology) and I can say that more reliable resources exist.

Can you post them please? wikepedia is not always accurate, however sometimes the sources used are accurate, so it's always good to check the sources before using wikepedia.
