Really? I think this is what you see, not reality.

The argument of "Indo Aryan mixed with Semitic people", is more close to reality.

Are you implying that the Indo Europeans were in Anatolia before Semitic tribes ? You should know that the Hurrian is as close as any ancient language there got towards IE.

And its not IE . It was of an agglitinative syntax . So was Elamite and Dravidian.

Most possibly the Indo Aryan influence came later and was overwhelmed by 1500 BCE. They were not there first.

I didn't mean that, but are you implying that human imgrations are not important? In some case yes(Turkic migration to Anatolia), but not at all(New World)

I knew that these languages are agglutinative languages also Turkish, Japanese and Finnish too. But Hurrian(later Mitannis) just had quarter of Anatolia also are they Semitic? If we look at their syntax, they are not Indro-European or Semitic. Agglitinative syntax is not further of Semitic languages. Some scientists put Hurrians language into North Caucaus group or define it as an isolated language.

However Assyrians are more suitable for your thesis. They are Semitic. They colonised Anatolia; nearly same quarter and Anatolia were met with writing by Assyrians. On the other hand there is one reality which is that Anatolia faced many migration wave.
