Roma-Sinti Jews

Roma-Sinti Jews
 
There are some Sinti Romani that were originally Bene-Israel because like the Bene-Israel of Indian they have the M172 haplogroup and Eu9 Haplogroups, which is found in Jewish Semetic people. The Theory is the Jewish-gypsies came originally from Gorgan or Jurjan Iran, where Jews were exile in 360 B.C. Jews were for some unknown reasons persecuted and in about 360 BC many were deported to Hyrcania (Gorgan) on the Caspian shore, near the Iranian-Turkmen border and Jurjan was in both part of Iran and Turkmenistan. Now the Persian Jews that remain Jews were called Bene-Israel. The Persian Jews who mixed with Zoroastrian were called Parsis, which is very close to the Jewish relegion. Some of the Parsis came to indian as Brahmin called Sakaldwipi Brahmin and Saraswati Brahmin other became rajput called Suryavanshi or Sun worshipind rajput or Lohar ranas or Lohanas. Some the Sinti Romani are direct descendants of Lohanas rajput, some of who were Jewish.
