Is there a Basque-Jewish-Rh Negative connection?

The answer is “yes”. And the more I am looking at genetic history, the more obvious it becomes.
As previously discovered:
Haplogroups J1c1 and J2a were 15% around 5,000 years ago amongst the Basques.

It comes to no surprise, that on the female side of Ashkenazi Jews, 1.7 Million people (20% of the Ashkenazi population) descend from one single branch.
(Which of course is unique, but no surprise considering being Jewish is being passed through the mother).
And just as the further back in time we go in the Basque region haplogroup J becoming more and more frequent, so does the Hebrew K on the female side:

Other studies reveal Bedouin groups being closely related to the Cohanim Jews. And the Bedouins are high in rh negative frequencies as well.
