There is evidence presented for the Welsh/Hebrew similarity at http://www.anglo-saxonisrael.com/powerpointpres.php, Chapter 2 in particular. I found the presentations interesting because they deal with the migration of European populations, about which I have been curious for quite a while, but for which I had no info at all. Now I have some info that I can investigate to see how well it is supported by historical evidence.

The philologists have worked out an amazing amount about languages, and language groups, maybe there are very ancient roots that branch out into ancient language groups. It is thought that proto Indo European is about 33,000 years old, and there may be even more ancient proto languages. Anglo Saxon was an invention of the Venerable Bede, it never existed, there were dialects of Saxon, dialects of Angle (Frisian Islands off Denmark) and dialects of Norse. English contains words from all these dialects, which are unfortunately all extinct. The latest thinking is that there was no Saxon invasion of Britain, because the Capelli study of 2002 reveals very little trace of the right continental DNA from places such as Schleswig and Holstein. There was some Angle settlement or invasion, Danelaw and Viking settlement. The Norse DNA is concentrated in the off shore isalnds of the 6,200 islands of the British Archipelago, the Angle or Danish DNA where you might expect it, in the midlands and northeast. The rest is ancient back twelve thousand years to the time when Britain and Ireland separated from the continent due to rising sea levels. A combination of human genetics and philology is scientific.
