The origin of the few Jewish I2 branches is not clear. I2 is an old branch in Europe and was significant present before the arrival of the Indo-European languages and the large increase of haplogroups R1b, R1a and I1. The I2-M233-L699 has an origin in the Middle East.
Branches can be found in very different groups, like branches in the Britain/Ireland, in Sardinia and southern Italy, but also in groups that suggest a part in the Slavic expansion. Each individual branch should be studied separately. No general pattern was found yet.
