A Sydney, Australia abduction experience from 1992, with biological evidence, became the subject of the world's first DNA PCR "alien abduction" related investigation, yielding intriguing results that have suggested fascinating new lines of investigation and speculation.
Born in 1964, in Lebanon, Peter Khoury migrated to Australia in 1973. He met his future wife, Vivian in 1981, marrying in 1990. They have 2 children. What might be Peter's first encounter with a UFO occurred in Lebanon in the summer of 1971 at age 7. He and seven other children had gone up onto the flat rooftop of his neighbour's house to play. Peter was the last to walked through a heavy door that leads onto the roof. He then saw all his friends "frozen" like statues in front of him, while a silent egg-shaped craft hovered above. All eight children later found themselves on the ground floor after some time had elapsed, with no memory of the intervening period.
In Sydney, during February 1988, Peter and Vivian saw a strange light doing extraordinary movements in conjunction with a beam of light effect.
At that time Peter Khoury had no real context to anchor his disturbing experience. Eventually he became aware of abduction experiences and entered the UFO field to initially understand what happened to him. Eventually, frustrated with the problems and politics that plagued his association with ufology he formed a support group - the UFO Experience Support Association (UFOESA) during April, 1993.
Despite trying to focus on supporting others, Peter Khoury found that strange experiences had continued for him. In retrospect, the most striking one occurred on July 23, 1992, according to diary entries.
He had been recovering from head injuries received in a job site assault (he worked in the building industry in his own cement rendering business). At about 7 am, having returned to his Sydney suburban home from the train station, after dropping off his wife, Khoury felt unwell and lay down on the bed to sleep. He awoke with a start sometime later, becoming aware of something alighting on the bed. He was shocked to see two strange women kneeling on the end of his bed.
Both were naked. One appeared Nordic and the other Asian. Aspects of their appearance were quite odd. The Nordic female had a very elongated face and a sharply point chin. Her eyes appeared to be blue and 2 to 3 times larger than normal. She had very fine wispy blonde hair that seemed to be oddly blown up. Her skin colour was quite light. The dark brown skinned Asian looking woman seemed to have almost completely black eyes. Her hair was black and set in a firm page-boy style.
She did this 3 times. Finally Khoury, trying to cope with the shock and disorientating nature of this experience, bit on her nipple apparently swallowing a piece from it. The Nordic woman, although seemingly confused, did not react with any pain and nor was there any sign of blood. She seemed to convey to the other woman that this was not the way things were supposed to happen. Khoury was overcome with a coughing fit. Moments later, looking up again, he found that both women had vanished.

The records from ancient Ireland describe a whole series of invasions. The "Lebor Gabala Erren" ("The Book of the Taking of Ireland" or the "Book of Invasions") , compiled during the 12th century A.D. describes the coming of the mysterious Tuatha de' Danann or Tribe of Danu. They were apparently tall, blond or red-haired strangers, "expert in the arts of pagan cunning", who supposedly interbred with the locals, while teaching them many kinds of useful skills. The Lebor Gabala records their dramatic entrance to Ireland as follows:
"In this wise they came, in dark clouds from northern islands of the world. They landed on the mountains of Conmaicne Rein in Connachta, and they brought a darkness over the sun for three days and three nights. Gods were their men of arts, and non-gods their husbandmen."
According to the mythic tales the Tuatha de' Danann were advanced enough to arrive in western Ireland (near modern Connacht) by air. They divided into two social classes: "gods" as teachers of medicine, smithing, communication or druidry, and "non-gods" as farmers or shepherds. Although no one knows for certain what the Tuatha looked like, descriptions, such as of their female war-leader Eriu, indicate tall attractive people with pale skin, high foreheads, long red hair and large blue eyes.
Some limited funding has permitted the purchase of specialised equipment to further this fascinating and groundbreaking work. Funding has permitted a DNA research presence, co-ordinated by the APEG, in a friendly laboratory facility.
The 4 phases of the Alien DNA Paradigm investigation with the Khoury case study as its cornerstone and catalyst
by Bill Chalker (copyright 2009)
The specific phases of the key Khoury case study, namely Phase 1 (the original breakthrough findings as described in the 1999 IUR “Strange Evidence” paper), Phase 2 (the hybrid & CCR5 deletion factor aspects as elaborated in the 2005 book “Hair of the Alien”), and Phase 3 (the focus on the Lahu aspects) have led directly to the Phase 4 (the global alien DNA nexus). Each of these phases of the research and investigation has profoundly defined the directions of the breakthrough work.
Phase 1: STRANGE EVIDENCE - 1999
Phase 1 was the original investigations into the Khoury case which resulted in the breakthrough described in the original “Strange Evidence” research reported in the International UFO Reporter, which was limited to the shaft of the hair sample, and led us to important Chinese connections.
Phase 2: "HAIR of the ALIEN"
Phase 2 was focused on the root of the Khoury hair sample and revealed the breakthrough complexity that supported the apparent “hybrid” nature of the DNA profile of the “alien” donor – the blonde “Nordic” female – namely that we had a donor with very unusual hybrid DNA profiles – the rare Asian mongoloid (Chinese) DNA and the rare Basque/Gaelic type DNA, along with the indications of the provocative CCR5 deletion factor – which would allow such beings to carry out the sexual hybrid programme amongst humans without concern for diseases such as HIV & smallpox. This phase gave us real insights into the nature of these beings and possible activities. These aspects were reported most prominently in my book “Hair of the Alien”.
HAIR of the ALIEN - the CCR5 deletion factor (extract from my research file)
In my book "HAIR of the ALIEN" I describe a range of intriguing DNA properties that were found in the hair sample recovered from the strange encounter Peter Khoury had in Sydney Australia in 1992. One of the more provocative results was the suggestion that the strange hair, that apparently came from a tall Nordic type female entity, had the CCR5 deletion factor, which has been implicated in conferring viral resistance in some humans to conditions such as HIV/AIDS and possibly smallpox. In the book I describe the results we found in the "alien" hair sample.
I cautiously used conservative data about the CCR5 deletion mutation in the human genome, which suggested recent origin (perhaps about 5,000 years ago) and rare occurrence amongst the planetary human population, being mainly found at a low percentage among peoples of north east European descent.
The implication that this unusual genetic mutation was present in the hair sample, which had already yielded unusual results, perhaps had some significance, given that many witnesses reported aliens interacting with our environment, without any apparent concerns or precautions with regard to human or other earthly illnesses.
The CCR5 deletion factor has been under intensive scientific examination to determine the nature of its origin and its possible utility in fighting diseases. While mutations often have negative results, none seem to have been highlighted to date in this case.
Alison Galvani and John Novembre report in "The evolutionary history of the CCR5-delta 32 HIV-resistance mutation" (Microbes and Infection 7 (2005) 301-308), "intriguingly, this allele is young in evolutionary time, yet it has reached relatively high frequencies in Europe. These properties indicate that the mutation has been under intense positive selection. HIV-1 has not exerted selection for long enough on the human population to drive the CCR5-delta32 allele to current frequencies, fuelling debate regarding the selective pressures responsible for rise of the allele." Galvani & Novembre, extending earlier research (for example Galvani & Slatkin, "Evaluating plague and smallpox as historical selective pressures for the CCR5-delta 32 HIV-resistance allele", PNAS, December 9, 2003, Vol. 100, No. 25) argue for smallpox rather than the consensus view of the plague. The plagues occurrence was too intense, restricted in occurrence both in time and place, and of too recent impact to be the main factor in the origin of the CCR5 deletion factor. Smallpox has been around far longer and according to Galvani & Novembre is a more likely candidate. Controversy continues about the mutations age and origin.
Given the arguments of population, geographical and temporal pressures on evolutionary selection for the mutation, it seems to be that the smallpox argument still has its problems, given that its origins are generally thought to be in Africa, then spreading through India and China, before reaching Europe and later America. Despite this the CCR5 deletion mutation is conspicuous in its absence in the populations of Africa, India and China, according to existing data. Thus the argument of Darwinian selection pressure seems wanting. Obviously mainstream science is not openly contemplating alternatives, such as directed panspermia or non-Darwinian intelligent intervention at some point in our past. Maybe some radical thinking might be in order. Meanwhile the pace of genetic research is revealing fascinating evidence for consideration in the area of unusual mutations, polymorphisms and other genetic anomalies.
Phase 3: The Lahu connection (Thailand/China) - 2005/2006
Phase 3 allowed a focus on the genetic connections at a very specific and detailed level, because of the apparent uniqueness of the rare Asian mongoloid sequence, namely the sequence, specifically the DNA polymorphic sites 16,108 T and 16,304C, which may be unique to a very isolated group of people – the Lahu who are limited to the region of the southern Chinese province of Yunnan, and the immediate regions bordering that locality – northern Thailand, Myanmar (Burma), and Laos. The areas of Yunnan and northern Thailand, for which we have accessible data and research, gave us the best opportunity to progress our research, particular with the UFO and unusual light phenomena connections in both regions. The uniqueness of this connection makes this Phase 3 work extremely important for the main breakthrough focus of this research – the genetic DNA UFO paradigm connection. On our current research, which we can establish similar broad connections with the Basque/Gaelic aspects, we do not have the specific and unique DNA linkage to a localised area and group of people, as in the Lahu connection. Both the Basque and Gaelic communities (particularly the latter) have experienced diffusion and genetic dilution. We are very lucky that the genetic DNA evidence from the 1992 Khoury alien abduction event has provided a very specific and relatively undiluted group of people. The Lahu people, via the DNA clue from the Khoury hair sample, may be connected with the apparent “Nordic hybrid” being, both through their DNA and their locality, which we have found to be rich in UFO and unusual light phenomena. These investigations facilitated a dramatic consolidation and increase in valuable UFO data from China, particularly in the province of Yunnan - an area that also significantly features in the Lahu connection.
Phase 4: the global alien DNA nexus
The critically important Phase 4 aspect focuses on evidence for alien genetic “intelligent intervention” in various cultures (particularly indigenous cultures) around the world, such as the Lahu in Thailand & China, the Kayapo Bep Kororoti in Brazil, the Maori connection in New Zealand, the Zulu connection (per Credo Mutwa) in Africa), and other suggestive connections such as the Ainu of Japan, the Saami genetics enigma in northern Europe, the Basque & Celtic connection (which includes the Tuatha Danaan), the Hopi, the Anasazi, Olmec & Mayan cultures). While we may feel that the alien presence is beyond our control & ken, we can gain a great understanding and possible breakthrough progress by examining the potent signatures of the alien presence, particularly those that may be scientifically studied, such as DNA forensic evidence.
This phase is driven by focusing on:
• Locations with high strangeness/breakthrough activities with UFOs, light phenomena, alien abductions
• cultures that feature “sky being” claims, diverse UFO phenomena
• possible unusual DNA markers within these cultures or present selectively or generically in human DNA
• locations or regions which bring together each of factors (UFO “haunted” location, alien mediated culture, DNA aspects. e.g. the Lahu)
