Solomon's Seed?

Razib looks at the genetic data about Ethiopians and concludes that (1) the Amhara and Tigrayans have a very different ancestry from the Oromo, and (2) "Ethiopians, in particular highland Ethiopians [i.e., the Semitic speakers], seem to me likely an ancient stabilized hybrid population between a population from Arabia, and a local Sub-Saharan population."
