Could Greeks and Yemenis be relatives? [Archives:2005/818/Letters to the Editor]

Being of Greek descent, I know that Athenians and Northern Egyptian cities shared kinship in the distant past, and that a mutual respect and brotherly feelings exists up to the present.

I have also heard that certain tribes in Yemen claim kinship and common ancestry with Greeks going back to ancient times.

Is this true? Have you heard this? (I hope it is true) I request that any of your readers who knows more please inform me by emailing me to my email below.
