This was a continuation of attempts by Cyrus Gordon in finding connections between Minoan and West Semitic languages.

Here is C. Gordon's Semitic Inscriptions From Greece.

Interesting, so in summary this author believes the language written in Linear A to be Semetic?
I know of two tragic histories in the world- that of Ireland, and that of Macedonia. Both of them have been deprived and tormented.
