Looking at the Greater Arabian Peninsula Through a Y-DNA Lens
Using the genography atlas (http://genography.xyvy.info/country-national-haplogroup-chart-dna), the countries of the Greater Arabian Peninsula (area bordered by
J% R% G%
J% R% E%
UAE: 29.2 29 13.2
J% E% R%
West Bank/Gaza: 54.2 19.6 11
Upon mapping these groupings I discovered that the JRG group consists of the two most northern countries, the JRE group consists of the next two most northern countries and continues along the east coast of the Saudi Arabian peninsula to Oman (except Kuwait), and the JER group includes Saudi Arabia and the nations running along the west coast of the peninsula (plus Kuwait which is something of an aberration).
These groupings would suggest possibly stable grounds for sub-regional socio-economic cooperation.
