The Minoan civilization is native to Europe

From Google translation

A genetic study revealed that the Minoan civilization is native to Europe, and not in Egypt or the Middle East as it has long been assumed.
Whence the Minoans, the mysterious people who inhabited the island of Crete until the year 1400 BCE, before disappearing in mysterious circumstances yet (the volcano Santorini might be one of causes), leaving behind the remnants of a civilization among the finest of antiquity?

For years, the argument that prevailed was that the Minoans were from Egypt expelled from the region some 5,000 years ago due to an invasion from the south of Egypt, they were forced to migrate northward Mediterranean, then arriving in the islands of the Aegean Sea, including Crete. Advanced early last century by Sir Arthur Evans hypothesis, author of the discovery of Cretan palaces (including the famous Palace of Minos at Knossos), due to the discovery in Crete similar artifacts to those produced by Ancient Egyptians.

More recently, other theories have emerged. One of them suggests that the Minoans from the migration from North Africa or the Middle East, but archaeological evidence discovered so far have not helped support this hypothesis.

The most recent theory postulates that the entire region of the Aegean Sea at that time was inhabited by a people called "Aegean" which is the origin of the Minoan civilization. However, this assumption has so far never been confirmed.

However, a genetic study by George Stamatoyannopoulos, a geneticist at the University of Washington (Seattle, USA) suggests that the Minoan civilization descends indeed a people already established on site, in the region of the Sea Aegean, not colonization came from Egypt or the Middle East. ... k_4_MbGM0Q ...
