Are Southern Europeans more closely related to ancient Middle Easterners than are modern Middle Easterners?

It would seem that the Middle East has undergone significant genetic change in the last 3,000 years.

My opinion has been that you can easily trace the decline of scientific and mathematical progress in the Arab world closely with it's increased admixture of sub-Saharan DNA. The Arab world was the largest importer of African slaves, and those slaves have been absorbed into the Arab populations over many generations.
