Modern, and Iron age Southern Europeans were not predominantly of Neolithic Anatolian descent. They were indeed like that during the Neolithic period and beginning of civilization around the Mediterranean region, but since the arrival of Indo-European languages and other migrations that occurred throughout millennia, the chunk of Neolithic Anatolian ancestry has been slightly diminishing.again just demonstrating that you don't know what you're talking about and don't bother to do the slightest bit of research. Neolithic Anatolians are one of the major ancestral populations of modern Europeans. Southern Europeans are predominantly of Neolithic Anatolian descent, and they are the most similar to Neolithic Anatołians.
Of course, Neolithic Anatolian ancestry still probably composes a considerable amount (almost half) of the ancestry of southern Europeans, but it's not the predominant ancestry component.
Besides, Middle Eastern and Caucasian populations also exhibit a lot of Neolithic Anatolian ancestry as well.
